Floating in Paradise!

Or should I say living on the edge.  This photo is from here, along with an article about swimming in a rock pool, called Devil’s Pool, located at the top of Victoria Falls in Africa.  The falls are situated between Zambia and Zimbabwe.  Although I have visited the falls many times (from the Zimbabwe side) and even whitewater rafted down the Zambezi, I have never taken a dip in Devil’s Pool.  I actually feel quite cheated now.  I will have to go back and do that. At the time of my visits I did not know the pool existed.  It is easy for me to say I would have taken a dip in it as I sit here safe and sound in front of my computer, but I would love the chance.  I have stood at the edge of those falls and I have marvelled at the pure granduer.  I am sure it would be even more awesome from the edge of Devil’s Pool!

What is that saying, “If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much room!” Well these people are definitely not taking up too much room!

Here is where I would rather be!

I love where I live, in beautiful sunny Southern California, but I must say that I would actually love to be one of those people with no permanent address that travels around the world.  Just like The Professional Hobo. Oh, my dream. I should not complain, as I have been fortunate enough to do a lot of traveling, far more than many people I know.  And, I am not done yet.  There is still more travel left in me.  Here are some of the places that I have been lucky enough to have visited or lived:

In the U.S.

  • Obviously all over California
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • San Antonio, TX (love it there!)
  • Orlando, FL (although never been to Disneyworld!)
  • Savannah, Georgia (want to go back)
  • Charleston, SC (shout out to my Aunt & Uncle there)
  • Norfolk, VA
  • Washington D.C.
  • New York, NY
  • St. Joseph, MI (shout out to my sister who is freezing)

Outside of the U.S.

  • Harare, Zimbabwe
  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • Lisbon, Portugal
  • Paris, France
  • London, England
  • Mexico City, Mexico

There are so many places still to go and see! That list is long!

Wishing I was a vagabond,
