J is for...Journey

I'm a firm believer in the journey being as important as the destination. Such as this beautiful road trip we took to the city of Al Ain last year. It was a weekend trip to one of the most green cities in the UAE, but the resort we were staying in was up in the mountains in a place called Jebel Hafeet. Once we started our ascent, the beauty of these rocky mountains was breath taking. We couldn't help but stop and admire them. And that's the way it is with life, which is little more than a journey. Yes, we have places to reach, but we mustn't forget to stop for a while and admire the view.

That does look like an amazing place to take a journey. You are so right that we focus so much on the destination and forget to stop and look on the way. Life is a journey, an exciting one which has an unknown destination!

What beautiful colouring in the rocks. I once heard a speech that spoke of life being a train journey. Just because the train remains on the track, it doesn't mean you can't get off and wander for a while...there will always be another train to help you move to your next destination. x

I love the journey. It is all part of the experience. The views and people you met on the way. Explains why travel books are so popular. #AlphabetPhoto.

I completely agree, we need to make sure we enjoy the journey, slow down a bit and take it all in. Beautiful scenery, it must have been an amazing drive x #alphabetphoto h

Tarana said...

True, the journey is really special, isn't it?
