I feel fortunate to have experienced some incredible things this year. And in the spirit of giving my future self something to look back on, I’ve created a quick and dirty top-ten list of the past year — aka, my Travel Highlights of 2017! They’re listed in no particular order, except that I saved my most-fave for last.
10. Suspended over Reutte, Austria
Just south of the border from Bavaria in the tiny town of Reutte, Austria, is Highline 179. Connecting two castles, it’s a suspension bridge that is simultaneously terrific and terrifying!
I walked Highline 179 this summer and temporarily regretted the decision two-thirds through. But I survived the crossing — twice! — and am alive to tell the tale. Watch a time-lapse video of the adrenaline-pumping walk (above) in less than 45 seconds!Continue reading “Travel Highlights of 2017”
So, the title’s a wee misleading. In a post called “Prrrrrty Cats Around the World,” you’d expect to see cats from at least six out of seven continents. (I’m pretty sure Antarctica doesn’t have cats, you guys — but lemme know if I’m wrong!) Instead, this should be called: “A Selection of Cats from Ten Countries on Four Continents in the Northern Hemisphere.”
But “Prrrrrty Cats Around the World” sounds better and is more succinct, don’t you think?
Yeah, I thought so too.
Prrrrrty Cats Around the World
The sole purpose of this post is to share some cool encounters of the cat kind from three-or-so years of travels, where I’ve crossed paths with captivating kitties from Paris to Tangier, from Greek Isles to British Isles, from Switzerland to Seattle — and more!
Hope you’ll enjoy. And don’t forget! Every time you share this post with your cat-loving friends, a kitty gets its wings! Meow!
