COVID slowed us down for a couple of years, and now a few health issues challenge us. We're still traveling if not writing about it quite so much. Our goal in 2022 was get to all seven continents in one year... and we did it.
Going forward health issues may not allow us to travel. No one can take away those memories though. We hope all of you are well and staying safe... and that you find some inspiration here for YOUR future travels.
As all those animals turn and walk away, you realize getting those backsides of Africa photos isn’t as easy as you thought either... I mean as compared to getting great shots from the front.
Does this little monkey get your attention? (Click on this photo to read more about him.)
When the darn critters kept turning around… I told Mark, “Get me butt shots and I’ll put THOSE up.”
This was not an original thought…
Probably everyone who has gone on safari has come up with this idea…
But I decided to do something about it.
And while the idea might not be original, our photos are.
Getting close up shots from behind was harder than you might think.
Sometimes I just put up a page because it tickles ME…
My first attempt on this subject was Africa Seen From Behind.
I like that page, but it sort of got away from the joke we made on safari...
That page is more filled with all the shots you get from behind with a few backside shots mixed in.
But I really thought a backside of Africa page would be hilarious, so let’s give that a try…
I’m sure if we lived in Africa, we could get tons of butt shots eventually, but we’ll put up the few we have… If you have some bumm shots you’d like to share go to Your Travel Stories… and share one to four photos. We’ll link to those pages and share the best ones here.
So here we go… without a lot of explanation or text… Some of the cute little (or not so little) tushes of Africa…
We’ve turned these photos into a slide show…
If you want to see them that way, just click on any of the photos.
And in the end, I had fun with this... hope you did.
Happy travels... even if you don't travel the world... just remember that life is a journey... embrace and enjoy it! Judy and Mark

Travel is fun in the Northern summer... but don't neglect the Southern Hemisphere at this time of year.
Yes, it's winter in South Africa, but that's their dry season. It's a good time to travel there.
Sometimes you need to watch rain patterns instead of just seasons to figure the best time to travel...
Whether you're taking a road trip close to home or traveling abroad...
Whether it's summer or winter in your part of the world...
the way you pack can make it all more pleasurable.
