Aisha’s Egypt: A Kiss From The World

This Photo Poem is my latest post over at Kiss From The World Travel & People Magazine. You might recognize this little shepherd boy from an earlier post, although I have repurposed it slightly to condense the text into a poem. I like the way it turned out, so I decided to post it on my new little home at Kiss From The World.

I just started writing for them about a month ago, and finally I’m taking the time to post about it! If you do not already know about it, KFTW is a really terrific website for international travel articles by interesting bloggers from all over the world. I hope you’ll take a look at their exciting array of travel related topics, I’m very sure you’ll enjoy yourself immensely! And, by the way, if you are interested in joining the lineup as a featured writer for KFTW, click on the banner image where it says, “Become our Kiss From The World Blogger.”

If you like to write about the place where you live, you might find a home writing under the topic, “Live Like A Local.” If you are an expat, like me, you might find a home writing under the topic, “Living Overseas.” If you are a seasoned traveler and enjoy blogging about the places you love to visit, Kiss From The World is stuffed with a variety of topics you can file your posts under. Writing for KFTW is easy, they allow you to post articles previously published on your blog, and it is an excellent platform with awesome internet exposure. There’s always room for more writers at KFTW, and I’d really like to see more WordPress bloggers in the lineup. We have a wonderful sense of community on WP that I’d love to see grow on KFTW.

Aquileana has happily become one of my dearest blogger friends, I enjoy her delightful presence very much, and I encourage you to visit her blog. She serves up a fascinating symposium with every post, full of intelligent insight, legendary inspiration and philosophical fun with timeless Classical topics.

Maria is a photographer of such exquisite skill, her photos will take your breath away! I encourage you to visit her blog as well, for an unforgettable appreciation of tropical flowers, not only because of the amazing photography, but also the truly awe-inspiring way she pulls the fascinating information together to share with you her knowledge about each flower.
