Word-of-Day-Challenge-Distant

~~~~~

distant

far away in space or time
~~~~~

 

At 67.41 degrees North

Wiseman, Alaska

located 63 miles north

of the Arctic Circle…

…Wiseman is the most distant place (north)

which we have visited.

 

However, as the crow flies,

Wiseman is only 12,884 kilometres

from Melbourne.

 

While London is only 51.50 Degrees North…

 

…London is a massive 16,893 kilometres

from Melbourne.

 

I know readers will find this difficult to believe,

but it is true!

There have been times

when I have grumbled about the distance

we are from many parts of the world.

However, this is one of the few times I am pleased

there is distance between Australia

and other parts of the world.

Stay Safe.

FOWChallenge-Suspense

~~~~~

suspense

a state or feeling of excited or anxious uncertainty
about what may happen.
~~~~~

I have heard it said that take off and landing

are the most dangerous parts of a flight.

While I enjoy flying, I am always happy

to hear the wheels being retracted

while the plane continues to climb

to cruising altitude.

At the other end a safe touchdown

is always a relief also.
