weekly photo challenge…’forward’
Changing things up a little for this week’s photo challenge and posting some photos with me in them! Taken back in 2008 during a 6 month backpacking trip around Southern Africa, I often found myself swept along with the excitement of the moment, throwing caution to the wind and throwing myself forward literally and metaphorically into a life with few inhibitions. Everything we did seemed to have some “extreme” element to it – whether it be the various physical challenges, travelling over the top of a mountain pass to a steep descent in a majorly overloaded minivan, seemingly driven by a 12 yr old wannabe Michael Schumacher, or getting lost in the dodgy part of a high crime African city. More than anything though, the experience prompted a change of perspective and has encouraged us to keep moving forward towards the next adventure….carpe diem!
