Seeing what others have – and don’t have – around the world often helps us appreciate our own good fortune. What are you thankful for this year? (Giving Thanks - Day 24 of the 30 Days of Indie Travel)

I am thankful for: 
  • The love of my family
  • My good health as well as that of loved ones
  • The love of my partner
  • The lifetime of friendship with my girl friends
  • The books that keep me company every day
  • This blog and the friendships it enables
  • A laid-back, stress-free career that allows me to do what I want
  • All those situations that toughened me up
  • The opportunity to do what I love and be financially rewarded for it
  • An education that upholds intellectual freedom and critical thought
  • The beautiful ordinariness of each new day
  • Being able to keep my mental faculties in order
  • The misery and splendor of travel
  • TV, Torrent, Facebook, Google and all those things that make life more interesting
  • The diverse richness of culture in the places I've been to and in those that I have yet to visit
  • The beauty of words and language
Happy thanksgiving.

"Misery and splendour of travel". What a great phrase, I like that. Great list. It's nice to take stock every now and again of all the good things we have going for us.
