After visiting #Uxmal I drove 20 minutes to the #kabah Mayan ruins.
It was dangerously hot when I got here and had almost no trees but I still managed to climb the top of the largest pyramid. Apart from some lizards, I had the place to myself. It was such a treat!
Which is your favourite, 1, 2 or 3? 🇻🇳
This is the Golden Bridge, this new attraction is creative and gorgeous - more places should create unique bridges like this... they can bring in people from all over the world!

the social living in Kotagede can be reflected through the form of houses and the use of private parts of the house to become semi-public, one of it is gang rukunan (harmony alley).
Gang Rukunan is one of the typical architectures in Kotagede
This term refers to the utilization of one part of the house, names "longkangan" (a space between private parts ~ndalem~ and semi-public parts ~pendopo~) to be used as an access that connects one house with another house.
Thus the interaction that exists is not only limited between the house and its owner but extends between neighbors and also the general public that walk through it.
Unlucky, not everyone understands that this alley is not public space (it's a part of someone's house), as a local we hope that people who pass this place could mind the attitude as a visitor.

In Drifting you have two competitors driving a track at high speeds. They have two rounds where first car shows the way and second car has to chase and mimic moves of the leader car as close as possible without making contact. For the second round lead car is switched.
Job of the lead car is to hit specific spots on the track while Drifting (see the white line under yellow car)
what is adventure if not an attempt to be close to death, knowing that you will (likely) cheat it? (copyright :p)
so we rafted,
through spider webs
and muddy waters,
through low hanging branches
approaching us at close quarters.
and as the rapids had me thrice,
my adrenaline shot up, precise.
As we were moved by the currents of the Pai river, that flows across the Thai/ Burmese border, Paul, over adventure guide told us stories of migrants from Burma who use this route to enter into Thailand for better living opportunities. Once while rafting, he found a corpse along the river and informed the police, who then took him back to the said point, and loaded the body on to the raft. He spoke of how icky it was to have a lifeless body in such close proximity for the entirety of the ride, particularly when it flipped into the water and subsequently emerged to the surface. I wondered about the person, who without life force, is an immediate outcast, a strange object, something to be gotten rid of. .
Went with @paiadventures, where Pam's insistence and persistence had me sold, and by the end our negotiation, she had my heart ❤️

Access to Tortuga bay by foot only. Not even bikes are allowed. It’s wonderful. Accompanied by the silence of nature all the way to the sea. A mindfulness walk like no other - otherworldly 🙏🏽💙🌎 this was my first morning on Santa Cruz.
Blue Mountains | Spent a week hiking in the mountains. Nothing like waterfalls, blue skies, and wind in the trees to refresh. May have been too much alone time, lots of thoughts and ideas running through my head, so I’m ready to get back to people and cities!
Our first landmark - A cloudy day at the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia ⛪ Created in honour to the Russian soldiers who died during the Russo-Turkish war of 1877-1878, as a result of which Bulgaria was liberated from Ottoman rule
Some days are better, some days are worse. Look for the blessing instead of the curse. Be positive, stay strong, and get enough rest. You can't do it all, but you can do your best.
Thanks for this beautiful photo! 💃🏻

Traveling to me has always been about connection. I love to go on impromptu trips where I can follow what my heart says. I bond with the colors, the people, the food, the smell and almost everything about the place. While most travel bloggers prefer to travel all around the world, I do believe India has so much to offer that one never needs to travel abroad. On one such impromptu trip to North East, I was traveling alone, I thought I would find a hotel on the go, but after much search, everything was booked out. Northeast has always been known for its friendly people, so after a bit of hesitation, I knocked on the door of a pretty house.
Understanding my situation, the lady of the house immediately agreed to provide me with shelter. Not only that, the next day, she even took me around the town for a short tour. That incident taught me the importance of having a backup in my life as unforeseen events can occur at any time. I travel almost every month around India and life can be so very unpredictable. Therefore, I decided to take a Term plan from ICICI Prudential Life. The plan helps me secure my investments and my family against unforeseen events. Not only that, but it also secures me financially against 34 critical illness. So, even in the future if something doesn’t go as per the plan, I’m sure that I have the right backup to protect me.

News must have told you what rain has done to Himachal. While I am in no trouble, yes the condition of the roads isn't very well.
And during this time, I went on a trek with my pal, Mario. ❣️
A 12-days long madness unfurled and it was due to his companionship that I didn't feel under the weather even once!
FIRST TRIP TO THE MIDDLE EAST 🏜
Despite the Middle East's reputation as one of the most unstable regions in the world, a few places such as Jordan are relatively safe to visit!
It was my first (and only) trip to the Middle East so far. But luckily, an amazing one overall. I started with Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the world, and highlights of my Jordan trip. To fully experience all that Petra offers, I recommend at least 3 days there.
The only thing I wish I knew before going to Jordan is the dirham is stronger than the USD and Euros 🙈
It turned out to be a little more expensive than I thought but still worth it!
. . .
What's your first trip to the Middle East like?
