You would not see me again. I feel I was made to travel this world. Well I guess since I was young, I was always disappearing and finding somewhere new I did not see before. Kids could do that once. Now parents almost have them on a leash.
I wish I could have enough money and time to explore every single country on this planet. I would go to warm places with endless beaches and arctic places with glistening ice floes. Probably not back to back though. It would be too jarring.
Most of all, I would see every animal on this planet, from the air to the sea.
The love of travel that can’t be quenched no matter how many vacations or journeys you take. That is me, never enough places to go.
I have been to Maui twice now, and I do plan to go back again sometime. No, it is not even close to my favorite place to travel, but it does have its special beauty. The wildlife was not especially plentiful, yet what I did see was not found here in Western New York. These Hawaiian Stilts were amazing birds with those long, slender legs.
You would think they never take flight, as you can watch them for hours where they barely move a muscle. They do fly as you can see, but I only had a 300mm lens on this trip, so they are a bit far away.
I am traveling again next year to a place with beautiful wild scenery and I will be taking a long lens just in case I spy some wildlife. Likely I will see some birds, but maybe a moose or bear since we are going to the big Canadian National parks. I wish we were going when it was colder for snow and bare trees, but my friends chose to go when the weather is still reasonable.
Sun, sea and wildlife, yes it is a wonderful place to take a camera.
