  5. This photo beautifully depicts your passion for nature and the environment Sony. The adage โ€œA picture is worth a thousand wordsโ€ rings so true Sony. Your single photo says so much about you. Much more than words could ever describe. I see lots of heart and soul in that photo. Just curious, what do you usually carry in your backpack? Last but not least, I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I will be catching up with your posts after the holidays. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Dona, I am always touched with your comments. You never fail to give that kind of effect to me. Anyway, what I carry in my backpack are trail food (which I cook or my wife). Rice cake leads the list of the subject food. Also, towel, clothes to be used after the washing up and lots of water for me and for my hiking buddies. That’s the reason why it my bag always looks bulky even on a day hike.

      Well, on the contrary that’s the least of what could have been a perfect view if only the weather was cooperative to me the day I went to that place (another famous landmark in my country). Nonetheless, I am convivial for knowing it still looks beautiful. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you very much!
