Bridge Over Troubled Water

I can’t believe it’s December already. It’s been an interesting and challenging year so far. Our travels have taken us to culturally diverse countries, isolated locations, and stunning landscapes. It’s been a conscious effort to escape the noise, the realities of life, the things that get me down, and find comfort in the serenity of nature. Thankfully, nature never disappoints. Those rough spots and uncertainties of the future are quickly forgotten on a hike up a mountain or a quiet walk along a deserted trail. Nature is like a ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water‘ always leading you safely to the other side.

Tabeaksan, South Korea.

When you’re weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes

Soyang Dam, South Korea.

I will dry them all
I’m on your side

Seoul, South Korea.

When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found

Seoul, South Korea.

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Suncheonman Bay National Garden, South Korea.

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street

Suncheonman Bay Wetland Reserve, South Korea.

When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I’ll take your part

Seoul, South Korea.

When darkness comes
And pain is all around

Mekong Delta, Vietnam.

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Halong Bay, Vietnam.

Sail on, silvergirl
Sail on by

Hustai National Park, Mongolia.

Your time has come to shine

Orkhon Valley, Mongolia.

All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine

Orkhon Valley, Mongolia.

If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind

Sereoksan National Park, South Korea.

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Sokcho City, South Korea.

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

  1. I love this song! Bridge Over Troubled Water was what I listened to growing up. Slow and soothing 🙂 Lovely travel photos from over the years. Looking back, it seems like you have travelled and seen much – and that your knee is coping very well with the travels. It has been a great year following your blog. Enjoy the rest of the year and see you next year for more posts 🙂
