A Leap of Faith


It's a busy week so I'm going to cop out and post another picture.

Do you see this bridge?  We actually had to walk across it in order to get to a monastery in the Meteora when we were there this past Christmas.  Can you believe my husband, who is terrified of heights, went across it too?  It took a leap of faith that the bridge wouldn't collapse while we were on it!

  1. Did you know about the bridge before you got there? If something frightens me, it's always better to be presented with it later rather than sooner so that I haven't had time to ruminate on it and instead, I'm presented with the scenario - well, we came all this way, so I guess I'll have to cross that bridge [or whatever it is].

  2. That's a good way to do it, Pauline! We did see it first, but by the time we walked down there we just wanted to hurry up and see the monastery. I have to say, we did not dilly-dally on that bridge!

  3. I can't imagine that most people (even those who aren't extra afraid of heights) would dilly dally on that bridge.

  5. Yes, we had to walk across it to get back. There was no other way! (Well, not an acceptable one anyway.) ;-)
