Monday, October 1:  The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is Mine. Is there a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about? Is it a feeling you feel when you look at the photo, or perhaps an unwillingness to share?

Share a picture that means MINE to you! 

This picture shows something that is all mine.  It’s a self-portrait of myself on the rooftop terrace of the Acropolis View Hotel in Athens, with a glass of wine in hand, enjoying one of many special moments during my vacation in Greece.  The Acropolis is behind me and though I cannot claim this ancient place, the experience of it, at this moment, is ALL MINE!  Traveling in a foreign country, soaking up the culture and the history, brings me adventures which are woven forever into the fabric of my life.  No one can ever take them from me.

This moment is, simply and irrevocably, MINE.

this moment is all MINE, and no one can ever take it away from me 🙂

And here are my feet, on this same terrace in Greece.  These feet have taken me to some of the most beautiful places on earth, and I hope they will take me to many more.  I’m incredibly thankful for these feet that are all MINE.

these traveling feet, all MINE, have taken me to Greece, Egypt, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Mexico, Bahamas, Canada, all over the USA, Korea, Oman, France, Britain, Jordan, Germany, Turkey, India, Japan and China… and i hope they’ll continue to take me all over this wild and wonderful world… 🙂

About nomad, interrupted

As of July 15, 2015, I'm now taking a break from living abroad. I'm living in Oakton, Virginia and looking for my next opportunity. Last year, I lived in China and taught English at Sino-Canadian International College. I also taught at a university in Nizwa, Oman for two years, and in Korea's public schools for one year. I love to travel and have been to 24 countries.
