Mark's Miscellaneous Madcap Manuevers - Planet Earth

  

Way back in the stone age days (sorry, cavemen), there really was a time when you had to take camera film to the store in order to get your pictures developed.  I remember ordering doubles and triples of entire unseen rolls, hoping to get a few good ones that I could pass on to friends.

 

Over the years, I've stuck my old pics in albums, a bedroom drawer and two file boxes in my basement. Every once in a while, I go nuts and dig them out.  J

Below are random photos from my life, adventures around our big beautiful world not covered in my other travel blogs, some of my favorite pics, as well as shots from my 53 TravBuddy meetups and roadtrips in 20 countries and commonwealths on 5 continents.

Jerusalem, Israel TB Posse-Sep 2011

 

Items will be changed and added when I need a good laugh. Also, my nifty nine lists of top travel destinations are posted at the bottom of this page.

Special thanks go out to Roger (X_Drive) for cleaning up my baby photo with my parents in Okinawa (first picture in 12th row), Francis (fransglobal) for his Liverpool pic, Francisco (frankrn) for his Puerto Rico image, Erin (poohstanggt) for her Belize print, Hugo (Hugo83) for his Bogota circle snap, Eric (yekcoh) for his KC group mug, Angel (Jelly) for her L.A. TravBuddy party shot, Lola (itslola) for her Dallas & Oklahoma City photos, Dalmia (Dalmia) for her Ft. Worth image and Elliot (Cabotono) for his picture from the first TravBuddy get-together in Bunratty, Ireland.  J
