Travel Photo of the Day (Jan. 23)

I took this photo from a small airplane (only room for six people) as we were flying over the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

    So much land, so little water, right?
    Great work as per the norm.

      We saw some of the larger animals. I was fascinated by the landscape. Fortunately the flights were pretty brief. I wasn’t a huge fan of the really small planes.

    Did you take anymore from the plane.

    great view! 🙂 I’ve never been in a plane, small like this 🙂

      I have on a few occasions. It is fun, but also somewhat scary. You can feel the wind move the entire plane…and all of the pilots are very young. That said though, all of our flights were flawless.

  11. I love your travel photos! I should seriously come up with something like this as well, given that we do get to travel quite a bit as we attend a number of conferences around the globe. You are truly an inspiration. 🙂 Six people in an airplane (no matter how small) still sounds very very posh. 🙂

      I would love to see your travel photos! It is so fun to experience what others have done and I do like seeing other parts of the world. LOL…the planes are quaint. The first time we landed I was amazed since they dropped us off on a dirt runway–no airport or anything. Fortunately our ride was waiting for us. I’m not sure how long I would want to stand around in the African Bush with just my luggage.
