Guess what today is, mein kinderlach...??
Yeah, we all know it's my birthday. Duh.
It's also Earth Day!! And I am oh so proud to share the significant date.
In honor of E.D. I won't advocate hugging a tree or even planting one - although if you so decide, good on ya!
Instead, glide on over to this series. Richard Bangs is a renowned river expert who's been navigating the world's wet wonders for decades. He's also the co-founder of Mountain Sobek Adventure Travel in Emeryville, California - an outfit that'll take you on that vogage across the Bering Strait if your heart so desires.
While chronicling some of his latest adventures, he and his team voyaged down the Jordan River to the Dead Sea. If you read nothing of his travels, at least check this one out. Clueless me had no idea the Dead Sea is rapidly dying. Note to self: Visit with Raphael before it's too late.
Enjoy Earth Day and be kind to your environment...
