Travel Ahh….Rivers

Rivers are compelling — whether they’re slow and meandering or fast and furious. With a dual personality, rivers represent both nature and civilization. Regardless, they take you on a journey that metaphorical and literal. The above photo is the Amo River running through Florence, Italy.

The Danube River is particularly beautiful. In Visegrád, Hungary, its “S” curve is almost always in view.

The Todd River, Alice Springs, Australia. We visited Alice during a rare flood. Because the Todd riverbed is so shallow and normally dry, it doesn’t take much rain to raise the levels to flood stage. A local saying maintains if you’ve seen the Todd River run three separate times, essentially you are a local. Sadly, this flooding displaced people who were living along the banks or underneath the bridges.

The Arkansas, Colorado, USA. This river runs through my hometown. At this particular point, a slalom kayaking course was set up. It’s still during the winter, but promises challenge for boaters in the spring and summer.

    • Thanks, Ashley! I’m so glad my post reminds you of the river in Seoul — I need to look it up or if you have the opportunity, it would be cool to see a photo on your blog! My photo collection is sorely lacking in photos of Asia simply because I have not traveled much there. However, it is a huge dream of mine to visit Korea, Japan, China, Burma and really all of Southeast Asia. I’ll live vicariously through your blog! Cheers, Steph.
