The Latest Adventure: Myanmar

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth


When I think of growth I think of

Of letting go to move forward,

Of new life from destruction.

The old supporting, but making way for new

New growth through the ruins of war

Ruins from the Croat-Bosniak war in Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovia. The growth of new shrubbery is supported by the ruins of an old bombed building.

About The Amateur Adventurer

I call myself an amateur adventurer. You don't need to be a "professional" backpacker, you don't have to drop out to travel. I'm an ordinary person with a 9-5 job and everyday responsibilities. But I've made a point to have extraordinary experiences. And so can you. Follow me on my adventures and find out how.


  1. So true, your line “The old supporting, but making way for new”. Nice post!
