A little bit gutted that I’m not arriving in Perth, Australia this afternoon. I usually stay for a couple of months with my parents, while working on travel features and my photography (and having A LOT of time next to the Indian Ocean). Instead, while we wait for restrictions to lift, I’m consoling myself with long Skype video chats with my folks. And I think it’s time to get back to a daily photo - so expect to see a lot of Western Australia! This is Hillarys’ Boat Harbour, a short bike ride from the parentals’ house. #harbour#indianocean#Hillarys#lowlight#twilight#Australia#Perth#WesternAustralia#thebreakwaterhillarys

In 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius caused the destruction and burial of Pompeii and Herculaneum. A hike will take between 20-30 minutes and the views from the top, to the towns of Pompeii, Naples and beyond, up to Amalfi Coast are simply fantastic. The caldera and crater are hugely interesting too.
Herculaneum is actually considered to be a better preserved example than Pompeii and still has some of its wooden structures, frames and roofing intact. Interesting sights within the complex include the Villa of the Papyri (believed to have been owned by Julius Caesar's father-in-law) and the House of Argus with beautiful frescos and wall paintings, further a series of skeletal remains can be explored, etc. It is a UNESCO world heritage site.
Despite the devastation cause and the amount of lava that poured over the city, Pompeii stands today in a fantastic condition due to the huge layer of ash that was deposited over the partial ruins and thus acted as a preserver.
Used as a burial site from the rise of Christianity until the 10th century, they hold the tombs of many bishops, the patron saint of Naples and also well-preserved mosaics.
The Teatro di San Carlo, built by King Charles of Bourbon in 1737, adjoining his Royal Palace has watched over Naples for nearly 300 years.
The poor in the area around Naples used to add tomato to their flat bread, and so the pizza began. Specifically, baker Raffaele Esposito from Naples is often given credit for making the first such pizza pie, when he topped the pizza with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil for Queen Margherita who visited Naples in 1889. That pizza is still known as Pizza Margherita today. Historians note, however, that street vendors in Naples sold flatbreads with toppings for many years before then.
Our first stop while cycling at Krka National Park is Visovac lake and the island of the same name. We leave our bikes ashore and board the small boat that takes us to the magical island 🧘♀️👌
