It’s a world of laughter

 

A world of tears

It’s a world of hopes

 

And a world of fears

 

 

There’s so much that we share

 

 

That it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all

 

 

It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small, small world

 

There is just one moon

 

And one golden sun



And a smile means
Friendship to ev’ryone

 


Though the mountains divide

 


And the oceans are wide
It’s a small world after all

 

It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small, small world

…a visit to the Colosseum was on the agenda.

on the Bay.

Two continents and one island this week.

A scene from Day  2 of our

Rocky Mountaineer Train trip

to Vancouver, June 2018.

Whistler ski slopes, Canada, June 2018

 

 

Across the Pacific Ocean

and much closer to home is

New Zealannd’s…

Mount Ruapehu,

which is an active volcano

in Tongariro National Park.

New Zealand’s North Island’s major ski resorts

and only glaciers are too be found on Mt Ruapehu.

Across the Indian Ocean is the Mt Sheba Resort.

And a not too long drive from Mt Sheba

is an area known as God’s Window. 

Stunning views

 

From

Sausage Tree Safari Camp…

…we were able to admire the Drakensberg Mountains

and enjoy a drink  or meal while doing so.

It’s probably fair to say…

 that elephant skins are…

a good place to find some wrinkles.

Could it be also said that…

that mountain ranges such as

the Drakensberg Mountains

are a wrinkle on the earth’s surface?
