My thirst for adventure ...

I was searching my archives of old photos and came across this one. It's a school photo taken when I was 10 years old. The book I'm reading in the photo is Penguin Road by Ken Dalziel. Written in 1955, the book tells the life of Australian explorers during their expedition to Antarctica in 1953. I haven't got there yet, but it's still on my bucket list! I must find a copy of this book and re-read it. I can see how my love of different places was fostered by the books I read as well as coming from my wonderful ancestral heritage: Scandinavian, Irish, English, and somewhere in the Mediterranean area.

My feet have longed to stand in these places and I've been blessed to have visited some. And my heart's longings may still be satisfied. I have many more years on this wonderful earth to live!
