Travel Photo of the Day (March 14)

I’m not feeling so hot today since I am battling a chest cold.  I’m hoping I can sleep peacefully like this lion for the rest of the afternoon.  This photo was taken in Botswana.  Have a great day everyone!

  1. I’m really sorry to hear about your cold. I hope you can stay cosy and warm and look after yourself with a few treats. Sweet dreams and peaceful sleeps.

    I’m so sorry that you aren’t feeling well. Seems to be the theme of the early part of 2012: colds and flu. I’m hoping we all have a healthy spring and summer. Get lots of rest and take care of yourself.

    • TBM says:

      I rather have a cold this time of year and not during the summer. Summer colds are the worst. Thanks Carl. A few days of rest and I’ll be back to normal. Here’s to a fun and healthy spring and summer for all of us.

  20. The Hook says:

    Awww, what a cute kitty..
    You’d never imagine he could rip you limb from limb!

    • TBM says:

      I saw one of the victims and yes, he could rip you from limb to limb. The poor zebra didn’t have a chance. I didn’t actually see the act, but afterwards. It wasn’t pretty.

  21. IsobelandCat says:

    Hope you are feeling better on this beautiful sunny morning in London.
    What are the black dots on the lion?

  22. Hi TBM – I hope you’re feeling considerably better now. Was also feeling under the weather lately. I self-medicated by traveling to an island here in Singapore – Pulau Ubin. Lovely place. I’m hoping to post a few photos soon [in time for our Photo Journal section].

Thanks for commenting, I would love to hear from you.
