Crown Fountain is an interactive work of public art and video sculpture featured in Chicago's Millennium Park, which is located in the Loop community area. Designed by Catalan artist Jaume Plensa and executed by Krueck and Sexton Architects, it opened in July 2004
The fountain is composed of a black granite reflecting pool placed between a pair of glass brick towers. The towers are 50 feet (15.2 m) tall, and they use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to display digital videos on their inward faces. Construction and design of the Crown Fountain cost $17 million. The water operates from May to October, intermittently cascading down the two towers and spouting through a nozzle on each tower's front face ~ wiki
I'm grateful that I've had the opportunities I've had to travel in my life. They are few and far between, but I'll remember them forever.
I remember reading a women's story on Humans of NY and relating to it so much. It's how she decided to take a break from her endlessly busy life, going on vacation to a far away place. A long vacation, with less tourism and more like experiencing every day life in a whole new place.
I remember having such a similar experience when I was abroad. I'd wake up in the mornings, have a coffee, take a stroll. I put the life I had back at home behind me at this time. It was one of the rare times I was living in the moment and able to appreciate the small details of daily life. The pretty skies, good weather, good food. It was one of the most therapeutixc things I've ever been so lucky to experience.
Be patient with yourself. 🙏

I just want to pack my things up, travel to a new country, and explore life. Feeling super stressed with work this week, and I just can’t wait for it to end and eat pizza on Saturday night with @claire_florent. Anyone else feeling the heat this month? 💥
Pay attention to those moments when the #universe again, is trying to tell you something. The universe, or God, or fate. Saturday, I talked to a friend and summarized in less than 1 hr where I have been these past 20 yrs. Then on Sunday, I listened to some #podcasts from @supersoul and @timferriss on both @raydalio and @ariannahuff. They weren’t necessarily about travel, but more about life, work, spiritually, dedication, passions, relationships, and stories. #Inspiring on many levels 👍. Then, come Monday, afternoon, I randomly post on my story (pic 5), that something is in the works. Then Saturday night, I open the newest @cntraveler@condenasttraveller magazine, and it’s all about #solotravel , and remote working!!! Whoa! 🤔 Definitely a good sign. Thank you, universe, and God. I’ll take it. I’ve realized that some of my best decisions have been spontaneous...me moving to DC...... my solo trips abroad. And there is still this itching idea, about writing more. Specifically to a group of professionals/friends from DC that have asked me to, to hear about my whereabouts, my adventures, my lessons learned, professionally and socially. Even if it’s for 5 readers, if it’s a calling, it’s a calling. #travelingvicky#travelbug#inspired#blessed#solotraveller#cantstopwontstop#condenast My first solo trip was to Yucatan, Mexico and I loved it! The food, like that pic in #playadelcarmen , the people, the landscape! Valladolid was so quaint. Those two cenotes I visited was random. I started talking to a vendor in the city, an older Mayan, and I asked about #cenotes . He said they were sacred to them, and he suggested I visit those two near #valladolid#yucatan#cenotexkeken and #cenotesamula . Another world!
We tried TILT at the 360 Observation Deck at the 94th floor of John Hancock Building. We were tilted 10 degree and then gradually to 30 degree so we could feel the extend of gravity. Tilt attraction is on the south face of the building, with eight individual bays that tilt outward from the top.
360 CHICAGO observation deck, located 1000 feet above the famed Magnificent Mile in the iconic John Hancock Building, offers breathtaking 360 degrees views of the city skyline and Lake Michigan.
TILT – Chicago is the highest thrill ride – an enclosed moving platform that literally tilts us out over Michigan Avenue from the 94th Floor. .
Рамо до рамо вървете смело,
От тук нататък туй е вашето дело.
Ръка за ръка един до друг,
Ти съпруга – той съпруг.
Трудности по пътя, че ще има то се знае,
Но вашето любов за това е.
Над всяко изпитание и пречка да ви извиси,
Всичко неясно да ви поясни.
Любовта изкуство е, някои казват.
Други, като мен, само го разказват.
Но има трети, като вас, които го доказват.
Сърцата вече стават ви едно,
Заедно продължете семейното дърво.
Започвайте от днес, не се чудете,
Заедно, когато слънце грее,
Заедно, когато виното се лее.
Заедно, когато дъжд вали навън,
Заедно и при камбанения звън.
Когато единият крачка прави, другият до него да върви.
В това казват се любовта състои.
Без значение дали крачката е назад или напред,
Обичайте се вие вечно и навред.
Без значение дали крачката е настрани,
Нищо вас не ще ви раздели.
Толкова много имам аз на вас да кажа,
Но рискувам от четенето да ви откажа. :))
Въпреки това искам обичта си да покажа,
За това още малко ще ви поразкажа!
Годините ще продължават да вървят,
Сезоните не ще спрат да се менят.
Пролет, лято, есен, зима,
Любов в сърцата ви нека винаги да има.
В младост и старост един до друг вий бъдете,
крачките, както казах, заедно правете.
Нека когато единият мечтае за звезди,
Другият луната да му подари.
Когато единият иска да лети,
Другият до него да се нареди.
Морета и планини заедно покорете,
Да се спирате въобще не си мислете.
До далечни земи заедно идете,
Заедно гледайте, мечтайте и се вий чудете.
Заедно в лошо и в добро,
Заедно - вече сте едно.
Знайте, че много значите за мен,
За това посвещавам ви този мъничък „рефрен“. Нека животът ви бъде весел и засмян,
