The surprising beauty of where you are!

A few years ago I was in the Gobi desert stunned by the beauty of the Mongolian desert. A boy on a horse walked by, nodded, probably wondering why on Earth I travelled across such a place in an English ambulance. Whilst this Earth is an amazing place of beauty, and so much to be discovered and explored, every now and then where I spend most of my time reveals a equally stunning beauty.  Even the people around you so often reveal something that refreshes your belief in a human beings capacity for incredible beauty.

These are just a few of photos that prompted me to stick this photos in this post. One is of a group of Mongolian children I met on my travels, another a dried sea bed in Egypt, and the others are of the sun going down on the river close to my house just a few days ago.It’s great to travel, but every now and then opening your eyes to who and what is around you reveals in equally amazing place.
