This month theme {Travel} was chosen by Sharleen Stuart Photography. Her reasoning was simple. She was traveling and would only arrive home 4 days before we were due to go live. Her pictures would be of travel. However, it is summer months, school holidays, and I am sure that we have all been traveling and have things to share.

The definition of travel is to “go from one place to another, typically over a distance of some length”

For Sharleen, travel broadens her horizons. Opens her up to different ways of life. Gives her the opportunity to meet new people, taste new foods, share new drinks. It helps her to view and understand a completely different way of life to that which she lives. It educates her.

Here are some favorite quotes on travel:

 “Travel opens your heart, broadens your mind, and fills your life with stories to tell.”

“I love places that make you realize how tiny you and your problems are.”

“Travel makes you realize that no matter how much you know, there’s always more to learn.”

“Live your life by a compass, not a clock.”

“Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos, kill nothing but time.

Here is the blog group’s take on travel, at least those who are not traveling 🙂

I am a firm believer that if you ever get the opportunity to travel, then take it. The world is your oyster and there are so many places to visit, so many new ways of life to learn, so many new friends to make. Go, see, learn, engage all of your senses and come away a richer person for doing so.

We look forward to seeing your images on our Facebook page and our Instagram Page.  Don’t forget to tag the Instagram posts with #sharesix_travel Each month we will do an interview with the featured artist, so share your images to be a part of this opportunity.

Look out for the new theme on September 6, 2022
