Armchair Travelling


I was going to post a humorous item called “People having a worse day than you” but then read the news of the Las Vegas shooting. After that, humour and people having a worse day was no longer appropriate. The madness just goes on and on, the body counts get higher.

So I’m posting something of beauty and peace instead. The images and text are from an email Leo M sent me on the weekend.

Thanks, Leo.

Thoughts are with those affected by the Vegas tragedy.
