Back in the Seventies, I learned that

no matter what one sees or visits

during one’s travels,  there is

no place like home.

To hear a customs officer greet you with

Welcome Home

in a familiar accent is

one of the most relaxing parts

of a 14 to 22-hour flight.

I am almost certain travellers worldwide

would agree with these sentiments.

This week my images end with

some of my favourites….Open Spaces.
