Being an outdoorsy person has always been one of my major frustrations. I’ve always oohed and aahed over photos of the great outdoors, found myself fascinated by the characters in movies like “Into the Wild,” “Vertical Limit” and “127 Hours”, and I keep telling myself that one day I, too, would be on an adventure of such proportions. I think it’s why a lot of the items on my 30 Before 30 list has something to do with me diving, climbing mountains, swimming with whale sharks and going on white water rafting trips. See, it isn’t just fears I am dead set on conquering, but frustrations as well.
It started last August when I started actually enjoying being physically fit. I began running, and from a sport I once resisted—hated, even—it is now among the things I find myself waking up in the morning for. I love the energy it gives me and the sense of accomplishment I get after beating a previous personal record. And it has been a great form of meditation—running lets me live in the moment and helps me appreciate the present more.
Nice shots, looks like an amazing place!

Note: The pictures were taken well before Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. Please consider donating in some way to help the relief efforts. The good people of the Philippines need our support!
Hope you guys are well! Here’s a photo of my toes at the Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh. The lake spreads over the India/China borders.
The photo’s also a part of my blog post here
Good shot, the red really is quite strong in this one!

Boat Lake, Ontario, Canada….. enjoying a ‘zen’ moment of perfection while kayaking…calm lake, pristine reflection, sunshiny day….a newly retired teacher “puts her feet up!”
That really, really looks very peaceful, nice!
Does it take an extrovert to be devoted to pictures of your very own feet? I think not! I always take pictures of my feet – I especially get a tickle out of this since I added two little people to my life (my son “Boo” and daughter “Lou”). They take my feet the funniest places. I laughed when I learned you also have a blog devoted to the subject!
Here are my feet on a recent canoeing day at Lac Poisson Blanc, Quebec.
I also included a shot of me and my son (I tried to get with my two-and-a-half year old daughter as well, but no luck on this score… she doesn’t always stay still!). It’s a beautiful place, and I posted some more pictures from that day at
You have to get out there and enjoy summer here in Canada. It’s pretty short!

Nice shots, Quebec is so gorgeous!
Ok so the table is set lovely… but look closely under the chair… haha This is a place called Riva Sud very close to Lago di Bilancino and very much worth it after a long day at the lake!
This doesn’t look like much but it is beautiful Lago di Bilancino in the Tuscan Region. It’s man made lake about 30 mins outside of Florence Italy. I just finished ESL school and it has been about 37º here in Florence so this lake was much needed!
I love your site! It’s so fun!!
Looks pretty good to us, and the paws are cute too!

This photo was taken in the middle of a 4 month trip to South America. We had just spent a few weeks in Bolovia at high altitude in rough conditions when we finally arrived in Lake Titcaca. The setting was incredibly beautiful – the lake and the sky were a brilliant blue and the hills around us were rolling green filled with picturesque village scenes. We found hammocks in the sunshine and spent a few hours simply relaxing and enjoying our surroundings.
Wow, what a great place to relax!

If you’re looking for a day out of the city while you’re visiting Vilnius, the most obvious choice is Trakai, a historic town with a 13th century castle set in the centre of a lake. As it’s a popular tourist destination I would advise visiting outside tourist season or set off early. We got a bus from Vilnius, which took about 40 minutes and was perfectly comfortable. Once you arrive, there is a short walk to the castle. The lake is busy with little shops, cafes and restaurants littering the shore. We bought woollen socks and Christmas decorations as souvenirs, there was also a great place to get ice cream. You can cross a bridge and pay for entry into the castle, however, we decided the best way to a) see the castle and b) escape the crowds was to rent a pedalo. This option gives you the freedom to paddle around the lake, where we found quiet spots to have our picnic lunch. One small warning…. do check the weather as we got rather wet on our way back to shore!
