Travel Theme : Relaxing

Relaxing with a good book

I love to travel, but it is actually quite hard work. I’m sure any one who has travelled for long periods of time in a small camper van or trailer will agree. Finding some where to set up camp, organizing your space, cooking meals, day-to-day chores in a  different environment, deciding where to go next day. Not to mention finding a connection for phone and computer to keep in contact with family and friends and of course the blogging community.

But I love the challenge.

It is not all work and no play and plenty of time is found to relax.

"Happy hour" perfect way to relax after an interesting day of discovery and adventure

“Happy hour” perfect way to relax after an interesting day of discovery and adventure. Cheers!!!



For the ultimate lesson in relaxation you only have to look at a cat. They are the epitome of relaxation, to them it is an art form. I’m experiencing this first hand as at the moment I am sharing a house with 6 cats. 5 of them are ragdolls and they are laid back and quiet with a very placid disposition.

Sleep is the ultimate relaxation so "goodnight". Sharing my bed

What a great theme Ailsa has given us this week. Go to her post at “Where’s my backpack?” to discover all the many ways bloggers around the world are relaxing.
