It seems that when traveling outside the USA, I find many things that just don’t look stable or safe. Case in point: houses on mountains, motorcycle rides over landslides, or me on anything. Here’s a collection of precarious things that would freak any mother out–especially mine. And yes, I use the term “precarious” quite lightly. So what here is precarious?
The girl who leaned out to take this photo of me rock climbing, for starters.
Or these homes in the Cinque Terre, Italy.
Or these schoolboys in Thailand mugging for my camera over the previous night’s landslide.
Or really, everything about this photo. No wonder we didn’t have power for a week.
How about any of these mountain roads in Nepal?
Or this giant fly, trying to function on this planet on its measly legs?
Or me on other cliffs:
Or me…not on any cliffs?
Or this village dessert’s contents, in my stomach, given to me during an event at which I was the honored guest?
Or me in this hammock in Malaysia (because the first one I was in broke, and I still have the scar to prove it)?
How about these bridges in India, Cambodia, and Thailand? If only you could see the true angles…
What is the likelihood that this Maltese road does NOT suddenly end and drop into the sea?
Or that my hiking buddy is NOT going to be caught in a gravelanche?
Or that several teenage girls CAN actually live in this tiny house on stilts in Asia?
And finally, will you trust that this egg-carrying bicyclist will never have to suddenly swerve or stop short?
Precarious or not, I’m still alive. Barely, but I still am. Remember: If you’re a mom, do not look at this post. Sorry for the late warning.
What a great post!!! Sure does capture the adventure in travel. Great shots!!!
Thanks so much, Savannah! I was just trying to highlight a few of the places I’ve been that no mother wants to see. Hopefully I’ll be off to more adventuresome places soon!
Hahaha, the guy with the eggs… What was he thinking??!! 😀
Your photos on this site are amazing! So fun and interesting. I really enjoyed them.
Thanks so much, Deborah! Hopefully I’ll be traveling in 2014 so I can bring you new (and amusing) posts…
