Zambia-Giraffe "Necking"

We didn't wake up, we came to-Zebras, Baboons, Monkeys, Impala,Elk nd almost got head butted by a Giraffe the locals call Bob. Despite his characteristic long neck, Bob (Giraffes) actually has  the same number of neck vertebrae as humans—just seven. Each individual vertebra is super-sized, measuring up to ten inches long. Necking is when one male engage in a ritualized display of dominance  that involves head-butting each other's bodies. Had a close call.

Male giraffes will test a female's fertility by tasting her urine. Which is something now I can't un-know

Fear is for folks who don’t get out much

“I know men who are healthier at fifty than they've ever been before, because a lot of their fear is gone.” 
― Robert Bly

Travel, at its best is creative destruction. In the wisdom of the moment,the power of a new language, food and culture and people are not problems to be solved but mysteries to be lived.

The whole exercise has to be one of reconciliation.Lowering, removing or shattering the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate we human beings, one from another. It's not so much about being understood as understanding. A lot of times, it's not you it's U.S. winning  the geographic lottery being horn in the USA. Why go anywhere else, eh?

The Hunt For Happy- is the longing for repetition.

The difference between hope and despair is a different way of telling our stories from the same facts. Pleasure is not happiness but the joy I have extracted from trips depends more on the mindset I travel with than on the destination I travel to. I don 't want to tell anyone where they ought to travel, but only how and why.

Rome Sweet Rome- Civitavecchia

Civitavecchia is a coastal town northwest of Rome, in Italy. Built in the 2nd century, the Port of Civitavecchia still retains some of its original features, like the Roman Dock. The port is the quickest route to Rome, which we opted out this time due to a Cinderella liberty of 5pm.

We instead headed out to Castello Orsini-Odescalchi, a castle in Bracciano, in the Province of Rome, Lazio, Italy. It is located on the southern shore of Lake Bracciano. It was built in the 15th century, and combines the functions of a military defence structure and a civilian residence
