Photo of the Week- Standing on “solid” ground

I didn’t realize I was on a cliff ledge when this picture was taken. I thought I was standing on solid ground. The ground beneath me could have collapsed at any moment. After seeing the picture I was amazed at where I was just standing. This goes to show that things are not always as they appear. I am glad I was brave enough to get close to the edge to have this picture taken. It is one of my favorite travel photos.

    • Thank you for the comments!
      Yes, it is an amazing photo! You really should get there if you can. There are also other incredible waterfalls in Guyana like Orinduik falls.

      Do you have any suggestions for places I should visit on my 14 months off from work?

      • Hi Turquoise Compass then come to Oman! A must-see place.A Oman is in the top 10 list of Top Destination Havens as listed in my blog. lot of incredible places which I am going to enumerate it later to you would probably interest you…Nice meeting you and have a nice day 🙂

      • Hi likeablefellow, Oman sounds incredible! I’ve never been to that part of the world and I should definitely add it to my bucket list! It does sound interesting to me!

        What is your favorite thing about Oman (I bet you can think of more than one thing)?

      • Hi Turquoise how’re you..been away for a while.My apologies.So now, lets get to your question.Yah sure there are 25 things(& more) to explore in Oman.Pls. log on to and type Oman in the Search menu and you can see a glimpse of the awesome places that can hopefully tweak your decision- making process and consider Oman.It is a must see for the Europeans.Where you from by the way maam? I can’t make the tour presentation to you about Oman but when you get here,if in case you are convinced well enough then you will realize that the amazing age-old castles, cliff diving, scuba diving and mountain trekking at Jebel Akhdar and Jebel Shams plus the peace and quite in Oman and the cleanliness here( Its the 2nd most cleanest city in the world), plus sailing, yachting and golfing and lots of good hotels to choose from offers a short description about your query.So where do you gonna go now? Hope to see you in Oman!

      • Awesome! Thanks so much for the detailed information. I am from the East Coast of Canada by the way. I am just flying back from North Carolina, USA and then I spent Canada Day in Ottawa! My next trip will be to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and then to the Dominican Republic with my mother in July.

      • That’s that! :)))) All the best in your next exped….No idea about Nova Scotia hope you share some nice experiences there…Enjoy

      • Thanks so much! I will be sure to share details of my trip to Cape Breton, NS! It is know for its hiking trails, beaches, and wildlife.
        Will you be traveling anytime soon?

      • Hi, TC!, Have you taken off? Sure I do have plans I will just decide where to go next in the foreseeable future.I just hope you enjoy your sojourn out there..:)

      • I have started traveling a bit in the last three weeks: Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Halifax Nova Scotia, Ottawa Ontario, Cape Breton Island, and Charlotte North Carolina. I leave on Saturday for a girls trip with my mom to the Dominican Republic. I backpacked the island in 2008 and I can’t wait to show my mom around next week.
        I’m like you, I often wait and book something last minute…going with the flow…not really knowing where I will end up! That’s the best part! I look forward to reading about your journey as well.

      • Hello…TC sorry if I call you with that monicker…I just love the short cuts.Your bucket list just keeps increasing.That’s where I want to go Dominican R or Ecuador.This are fantastic places..Keep enjoying and just excercise care in your solo runs…

    • Thank you for the comment. Yes, it was exhilarating and terrifying all at the same time! We all know that feeling well.
      The rainbow at the bottom of the picture is the perfect addition.

      Do you have any travel suggestions for my 14 months off from work?

      • For travel suggestions, a few questions: Are you staying in North America? In considering teaching enrichment possibilities, what age levels to you plan to teach? Do you want to go outside your comfort zone? Physical activity, cultural enrichment? I have lots of ideas. My teaching started with K, and then I quickly moved to middle level education. My years in MS were spent in an international school in Germany (3 years) and then an independent school in the states. I would love to dialogue with you about possibilities for your sabbatical year. We can continue this on email, if you like. Best, Maggie

      • Thanks for the detailed response. No, I will not be staying in North America. I am taking a year off from my teaching position to travel and to do all the things I don’t normally have time for (when I am working). I’d like to get involved in some short term ‘voluntourism’ type teaching opportunities; but, my main focus will be on travel, adventure, new experiences, and checking things off my ‘bucket-list’. I’ve taught middle school through high school. I’m open to working with children of various ages.
        Yes- I want to try things out of my comfort zone!
        Yes- Anything physical I love!
        Yes- I love learning about cultural things.
        Looking forward to your thoughts!
