My parents, they encouraged a love of travel from an early age.

As you can see I am thankful for many things, but there are many more where those came from. Aussies call Australia the ‘lucky country’, I don’t know that we are any luckier than residents of other countries however I am thankful for the opportunities we have, the abundance of space and access to good food, healthcare, education and at the moment, a low rate of unemployment.

Globally I am thankful for the amazing people that rescue animals from cruelty and those that work to help communities overcome natural disasters such as drought, floods and earthquakes. I am thankful for the wonderful places that are open to travellers/tourists like me and for the blogging community who share their experiences, their lives and their loves and provide support for fellow bloggers.

The list is endless, today I am thankful to be alive and able to share my photos and stories with you.

      Thanks Meg, it was a good challenge and forced me to reflect on how good we really have it because it can be so easy to forget.
