WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure

DSC03539 DSC03537

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge couldn’t have been timed any more perfectly. My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Rio de Janeiro which was an AMAZING adventure for us. It still seems surreal that we were able to go there courtesy of Swarovski!  Sometimes my sweepstakes hobby is a VERY good thing! 😉

  Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever upward. ~ Drew Houston

I have found adventure in flying, in world travel, in business, and even close at hand… Adventure is a state of mind and spirit.  ~ Jacqueline Cochran

It was fascinating to see the inside of a favela.  We are very grateful to our guide for finding one of the best views in the city!

  1. Hi Beth! You have a perfect photo with Christ the Redeemer. The sun never showed up, clouds were everywhere when we visited the site three weeks ago. You are lucky 🙂

    • Beth says:

      Thank you! We definitely were very lucky because it was overcast and rainy for the final two days of our trip. Thanks for the nice comment. I really enjoy your posts. Your daughter is absolutely precious 🙂

      • Perfect timing!!! We went back to the Corcovado Mountain for a second attempt. Better view than the first one but still not as great as yours 🙂

        Thanks for the visit. My daughter says HI to you. Happy Sunday!

    Wow, won your honeymoon – I guess you ARE a positive thinker!!! Congrats on your marriage.

    • Beth says:

      Thanks, Tina! 🙂 Sweepstaking definitely is helped by positive thinking, a lot of effort and being able to let go and let the entries go off into the universe. Sometimes that’s the end of it, but sometimes there are awesome surprises, like Rio! 🙂 Thanks for your very nice comment!
