2022 – A Year of Birding

“The world is a book and those who do not travel, read only one page.”

Attributed to St. Augustine in “Select Proverbs of All Nations” (1824) by “Thomas Fielding”

Looking back on 2022, I can say that I had the good fortune to read a plethora of travel pages. More so, in fact, than in any previous year.

From climbing the highest temple at the Calakmul Ruins in Southern Campeche, México with raging COVID;

To the serenity of the Waskesiu River in Prince Albert National Park in Saskatchewan, Canada…

… to riding the windblown waves on the Seabird Catamaran Cruise en route to Bass Rock, Scotland, home of the world’s largest Northern Gannet colony;

I read, and read, and read a tome’s worth of travel pages.
