Places to Ride a Donkey (or Mule)
Collected by Marilyn Fahey
Okay I admit it. I'm obsessed with donkeys. And mules. I can't always tell the difference. But aren't they the cutest? I think so.
Macerata, Province of Macerata, Italy

Thera 847 00, Greece
Santorini should be experience by "Donkey". The sense of the Donkey wanting to either walking off the cliff or run over walking humans is so funny. Yet, so freaking scary. During the ride my donkey was moving quite fast up the stairs, the reason...
Lindos 851 07, Greece
Our budget cruise had a full day stop on Rhodes Island. The island is certainly a favourite of mine. The old city is beautiful, but with a whole day, a trip to Lindos is a highlight. The taxi fare is astronomical, so we asked around a little and...

As a child, I watched a movie about Father Damien, a Belgian priest that dedicated his life to ministering to native Hawaiians exiled to this remote area of Molakai'i for having contracted Hanson's disease (leprosy). I finally made it to Hawaii...
Campo Grande - State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil
