So I was originally going to do another travel Snapshot today for the A-Z Challenge (I was thinking about posting on DaNang in Vietnam) but then whilst flipping through my travel photos I started to notice something else … videos! For some reason I always skip over the videos. Which is ridiculous … I’ve watched so many today and they have transported me back to that time and place in a way the photos just can’t. I confess, its got me a little teary and emotional (in a good way, don’t worry!) reminiscing about some great experiences.
I’ve noticed a definite theme with my travel videos … they all revolve around dancing and music. There’s none on any other experience. Which got me thinking … why is that? The only answer I can come up with is that dancing, music, singing … these truly are universal. All cultures share in it. Whether it’s traditional dance or modern, it expressing something about who we are. It’s a common bond, something which people of all nations, all colour and creed, experience and participate in to some extent. And let’s face it … it’s so much fun! So today, I’m going to share just a few videos from my travels and hopefully the sounds and sights will have you dancing through some foreign lands (I’ll apologise in advance the quality is not great!)
First stop – Cappadocia in Turkey for some traditional dance:
Next stop – the wild of the Okavango Delta in Botswana (this video is really dark … we were camping in isolated wilderness with no power or water):
How about something modern? Fire Dancing at Railay Beach in Thailand:
Finally, back to the traditionally with the white thai minority tribe in Mai Chau in Vietnam:
