Travel Photo of the Day (January 27)

I got up early today to watch the Men's Final in the Australian Open. For those of you who have recorded the match I won't ruin it. Instead I'll share this photo of this ball boy. His heart, determination, and bravery are really inspirational. He’s name his Ryan McIntosh and he lost his leg from a landmine in Afghanistan.

His name is Ryan McIntosh and he lost his leg from a landmine in Afghanistan.

    I didn’t even notice until you mentioned it. Thanks to all the young (and old) men and women who should be the true role models for our children.

    Had no idea TBM! Truly inspirational, thank you.

  5. I was at the 2012 Open, but did not get to see him. Absolutely an inspiration – you’re so right about that.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon!
