Adventure: WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

The WordPress Photo Challenge for the week would seem rather self-explanatory:


Last year, self decided to accept Margarita Donnelly’s invitation to share an apartment in Venice. She stayed almost three weeks. That trip certainly qualifies in her book as an adventure.

The apartment was in Ca’ San Toma. Only a 5-minute walk to the Frari church.

She had seen Venice when she was 11. Of course, it had changed. For one thing, everyone on the vaporetto kept vacating their seats and indicating that self should sit. In the spot marked for “Senior Citizens.” (Self, when will you ever learn to stop looking a gift horse in the mouth?) Although self is not quite a senior citizen, and it stung her pride mightily, she never refused a seat.

Also last year, self visited, for the first time, the town of Magalang in Pampanga (Philippines). She visited at the invitation of Alawi Canlas, an English professor at Pampanga Agricultural College.  Self really enjoyed meeting all the students, and discussing her work with them. That trip, too, was an adventure.

Magalang Public Market:  It's huge.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
