these simple, self-evident things ... gone ... any feeling of freedom ... gone.
I still remember that moment very clearly. On the banks of Loch Lomond in Scotland. After a hard but wonderful day of hiking, I settled here ... I set up my tent, prepared a small fire pit, and then just sat down on the water to read a little. An indescribable feeling ... any worries, pressures or commitments, gone ... there was just me, the poetic words on paper, and the even more epic poetry of nature around me ... a moment, a feeling that no one can ever take away from me, that I will always remember.
Today’s #OfftheBeatenPath highlight is “Cars” by Adriana Lozano
Comprised of fourteen drawings, “Cars” is an accordion book of vintage autos that Lozano witnessed while on a road trip. Though a popped hood, fire, or open window insinuates human presence, no driver is ever present the frame, allowing for a powerful sense of nostalgia through just vehicle and landscape. -
Adriana Lozano was born in 1982 in Bogotá, Colombia. She received her MFA from Universidad Nacional de Colombia (UNC) in 2009. Lozano lives and works in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Many of us are herbalists following the pagan paths of old. But we forget... The plants and herbs we utilize are intelligent beings, with their own motives, desires, likes and dislikes.
Instead of thinking of what properties a plant have, it's chemical constitutes and energetics... Think about who they are, personally. Are they feisty, reserved? Do they love the open sun, or prefer the darkness, in the depths of a deep forest? Does it have thorns, is it delicate?
Each characteristic speaks volumes on the true nature of a plant's spirit.
Only then can we truly understand what they can do for us and what we can do for them.
Such an interesting and uncertain time. For now, living vicariously through my own and others’ photos of past trips. Hope to be able to do some social distancing away from the house again soon
Missing those elephant patrol evenings out in Damaraland, Namibia.
Chatting as we wait for our food to finish cooking over the fire and where we got ready to sleep under the breathtaking desert star sky! 🌌 ⭐️
Nothing beats sleeping under the milky way...
"Ever since 1948, when the artist Victor Vasarely put the town, Gordes, on the map, it has welcomed political bigwigs, French presidents, artists and musicians. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When the hotel La Bastide de Gordes changed hands in 2014, designer Christophe Tollemer redecorated the property in the palest shades of straw yellow and olive green. He also refurbed the dramatic staircases and reinvented the corridors – through bone-white hues and wood – in the spirit of the nearby Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque"

Virtual Vacation Stop 2 - This Roman Tuscan Column was erected during the vibrant period of the salt trade in the late 1600s between European countries, such as France and Spain. The column served as a marker to guide vessels to the salt pans. If you’re looking for a breathtaking view, this is the spot!

Crying on the inside but grateful to be alive. Surviving car accidents, terrorist attacks, bike accident, grim diagnosis, and much more...thank God, ...... RIP to the ones who didn't make...sorry for being buzz kill. I am thinking heavily about how I live my life while I watch others lose theirs. I guess this is survivors guilt.
I was here alone above 3000m from the see level in the mountain ridge yesterday and suddenly I saw a footstep of an animal up there on the snow. Anybody can guess the type of the animal. I am sure is not dog because it much higher that the altitude dog can come alone. I guess that’s wolf! Any idea ?
Did you know that Nelson, NV has deep, abandoned mines? There are tours you can take, but there’s also this place that’s off the side of the road (before the river). When I took this video last summer, I was in my flip flops and had no flashlight. Hence, I was too chicken shit to go down very far. I’ve been wanting to go back and explore, however, I will admit I was frightened just going down the few feet I did.
Have you ever ventured into a deep, dark cave?

Currently dreaming of... Tanzania is renown for having the largest concentration of wildlife in the world... and Serengeti National Park is the cream of the crop when it comes to the ultimate safari experience. This gigantic animal playground is best known for the annual migration of millions of wildebeest, but also for its large lion population. If you’re looking to add some of the best places for observing wildlife to your bucket list, this is one of them!
