In search of wine and olives we found some roman ruins. The remains of a temple dedicated to Apollo, the god of sun, in Riez 🏛🇫🇷

Fantastic views from the cliff walk viewing platform at Grindelwald on Friday. To get there, you are supposed to take the vertiginous metal walkway round, and sometimes under, a huge rock face, and over a suspended metal bridge, so that's what Annie, Orla and me did (photos to follow). Garry and Isaac didn't fancy the cliff walk, so Garry snuck in for the final part — this suspended platform 45 metres out into the void. The views are amazing, and stepping out onto the end of the platform does feel like stepping into a void, but as with many things that day, we were mostly entertained by the endless photography and selfie shenanigans of everyone else queueing up for their mountain photo opp. We really need to work on our photo poses!! We seem to have stumbled upon a European alpine adventure parc, with go-carts, a huge flying eagle you strap onto, alpine scooters (or trottibikes), a zip wire and this — the cliff walk and platform. Our J for Jungfrau trip happened by accident – we knew we wanted a bit of lakes and mountains, selected Lake Brienz for our first stop, and added 3 nights into a hotel in Grindelwald as Garry's 50th birthday treat. We had no idea how popular it would be with coach-loads of international travellers seemingly having chosen Grindelwald as their Alps bucket list choice. There is loads to do here at Grindelwald First, it's all very accessible and it's brilliantly organised. It's also a perfect place to stay for a trip up to the Jungfraujoch, or top of Europe (more on this to come). We have loved our 3 nights in Grindelwald BUT, as always, we could probably have done with a bit more planning and prep in terms of logistics and ways to save some the cash. (In short: do things in the mornings, buy a Swiss rail card if possible, go for the saver passes and only take children under 16 ... absolutely none of which we managed to do that day).
A Buddha head peeking out from a banyan tree at Wat Mahathat in Ayutthaya.
The ancient temple site was built sometime in the 14th century, but was left to ruin in 1767 when the Burmese army invaded Ayutthaya. No one knows exactly how the Buddha head ended up overgrown inside the tree, however there are several theories. Our favourite is the tale of a lazy thief who only carried it a short way before giving up and abandoning it!
Now, it’s one of the most iconic images of Thailand. 💜
Si le Nord Est de la Floride est beaucoup moins touristique que le reste de cet état, il n’en est pas moins intéressant
De jolies petites villes , de belles plages à perte de vue quasi désertique .
Celle-ci même si je suis pas super fan du principe a un Carré dédié aux véhicules pour ce rendre sur la plage .
Je comprend pas trop l’intérêt mais il en faut peut être pour tout les goûts .
En route pour les Salinas Grandes 🚗
Direction le 3ème plus grand désert de sel d'Amérique du Sud 🇦🇷 ! Nous passons même un col à 4170 mètres d'altitude ⛰.
Puis au loin, on aperçoit une tache blanche, le salar ! 😍

What a crazy, hectic but insanely rewarding week.
Not only did I move to the other side of the world but I also landed a job, found a house to live in, made some new friends and even have already been to Jasper and Banff.
It’s definitely slowly sinking in that I’m in this alone and my whole social circle is back home, but at the same time it’s a good chance to really embrace myself and doing the things I love.
Hope everyone had amazing weeks!
Awww Western Australia you've been awesome as always, you never disappoint, we love WA so much and glad we call it our home but time to get back into the Northern Territory for some good times and rock'n roll!!! More blue skies, hot springs, freshwater swimming holes, crocs (hopefully not in the swimming holes!), desert plains, termite mounds, boab trees, red dirt & waterfalls to come!

The impressive Teerathgarh waterfall, located inside Kanger Ghati National park. About 35kms from Jagdalpur, it is one of the most visited waterfall in the state of Chattisgarh.
In July 2018 I made one of the most important phone calls of my life. I called my mum&told her that after having studied for 7yrs, all whilst working my butt off with the most random student jobs&having finally become a lawyer, I felt that it was time to take a year off&give myself permission to have my „gap year of 2019“ which I had been putting off since I was 18.
I had my first job at the age of 14. I had numerous cleaning jobs, I was a tutorer, a nanny, a factory worker, a swim teacher, an assistant...you name it. I worked too many hours all whilst pursuing two degrees in two different languages of which neither one was in my mother tongue. I was pretty exhausted&having arrived at the finish line aka. being a lawyer really confronted me with questions - and now what? Now that I‘ve done what society asked of me, namely, pursue a career, what do I want? What‘s gonna make me happy?
So, I made the decision that I was gonna allow myself to slow down&figure out what I wanted&what made ME happy instead of continuing doing what society expected of me. I was sure of one thing only-I loved travelling&serving people. Every penny I would earn that didn’t go towards my education went towards travelling&volunteering. So I told my mum that I was going to book a one way ticket to Thailand where we were going to spend Christmas together&travel for as long as my money would last.
See, the universe has a funny way of working out once you show up with bravery&courage&full heartedly chase your own dreams.
I ended up quitting my job way earlier than I had planned to, I met my amazing partner who would introduce me to the world of working anywhere in the world online, I somehow found a way to serve people with my knowledge that I had accumulated in my 7 years of study&most importantly I‘ve been able to take the time to get to know myself better - to really dig deep within&to grow as a person.
None of it happened overnight&I‘m still trying to figure it out. EVERYDAY. But it’s great to pause&look back at where your journey has taken you.✨
Thanks to @misfitsandrejects for the opportunity to reflect on how I got here today.

I’m working on 4 different collaborations. Some you may know and some you don’t. Can you take a guess on who they are? 😉

Happy Friday from Utopia🦋
Uninterrupted ocean views of @discoversoneva create a unique castaway experience. Their beautifully designed villas offer the ultimate in privacy and laid back luxury. To be honest, I would rate Soneva 7 stars if I could. Who would you like to vacay here with?😎

📷 @timmckenna: "The iconic Mount Mouaroa in the middle of ‘green lizard island’ actually looks smaller than it is once you are up close shooting with a wide angle lens. Imagine the 360 view from the summit ?"
