Thank you, everyone, for your kind words about yesterday's heavy-ish post. Each supportive comment really means a lot.
Like many bloggers, I suspect, I tend to agonize over each post I write. Sometimes I'll go for a week or two without writing because I put so much pressure on myself to come up with an engaging combination of pretty pictures and clever words. Often I just want to post something short and random and get on with it.
That's why I'm starting a light, fun series called Awkward Travel Photo Thursday. I usually post only my best photos to this blog or to my Facebook page, but not every moment of my travels has been picture-perfect. Sometimes things are just awkward.
And, trust me, I have no shortage of awkwardness to share. I hope I'll be able to give some of you a good laugh!
KANGAROO IS UNIMPRESSED
Many travelers love to pose with cute, native animals. Australia's Cairns Tropical Zoo has an enclosure that holds about 60 kangaroos that visitors can feed, pet and take photos with. They're free to hop around the large area, but mostly they just lie in the sun and look bored. By the end of the day, they are so full of food that they could not care less about visitors.
This one was particularly unimpressed with me.
