Whenever I am in New York City, I will try to take a walk in Central Park.
I have always enjoyed strolling there, especially during Autumn.
I like that too, trees and people converging to a point which disappear in a distance.
These pictures were taken by my wife earlier this year as part of her visit which involved travelling 5400 miles in the National Parks of the South West and a return trip from Las Vegas back to San Francisco via the Pacific Highway.
The jellyfishes at Monterey Aquarium are just fascinating!
How often do we think that we have to endure in our travels?
Long distance travelling, in particular, requires a lot of endurance.
Even before we reach our destination, to mention a few, we have to endure:
*Queuing for checking in and security checks at the airport.
*Getting through immigration.
*Long hours of flight with cramped seats, not much sleep and unstable cabin temperatures and humidity.
*Getting in and out of airports.
*Sleepless nights in hotels with unfamiliar conditions / beds.
Even when we actually reach our destination, depending on where we go and how we want to do our travelling, we may need to be persistent.
The following photos were taken by my wife while they were travelling earlier this year in the United Sates. This was part of their 5400 Miles Travel in the USA – an earlier series which I have published and which will be continued when I have the time / mood to go back to it.
The second photo shows them walking in the South Western part of the States, among a strange landscape.
Some people like to endure, Hans always like to choose the most difficult route in the National Parks.
So, I suppose part of the endurance was self inflicted!
Here are a couple of images which I think show the most beautiful part when driving along the Pacific Coast or State Route 1.
While the National Parks in the SW was her major focus of the trip, the drive back from Las Vegas to San Francisco along the SR1 was one of the most memorable.
The second photo shows part of the Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur.
Both images are wonderful examples of silhouette which I would like to share.
