Sometimes I wonder, wouldn't life be much easier if I had no ladders to rise, if i could be just a wage worker spending weekends on getting high, if the mind would not wander & eyes would not cry. Sometimes I wonder if the dreams could really die.
Sometimes I wonder, wouldn't life be much easier if I had no pain being the center man boarding the same lift again & again, if could perfectly match my lip curve to those on my shirt, if i could ignore the tik tok in my bedroom from the wall clock. Sometimes I wonder, if the dreams could really die.
Sometimes I wonder, wouldn't life be much easier if I had not seen the places i have been and not met the people i have yet or i could just return to my bed, all of me; from the roads i have tread, if i could have murdered the child inside & bribed a smile outside. Only if the dreams could really die.
It’s a challenge to travel with a carry on suitcase, you realise how little you own, how limited your choices are. It begins to sprinkle - I can see the specks of water fall occasionally from the 10th story apartment in Paris. One entire wall is replaced with a window. You have to hand crank the blinds up or down. I can see Montparnasse Tower & heavy grey clouds overhead. Do I choose from my olive green long sleeve or my white one? I don’t have much to choose from. 🤷🏻♀️ When you have a hub, a home, a place to live over an extended period of time, you accumulate muchas cosas, many things. But when travelling light, you’re forced to let go & let live. I’ll wear the same thing again because it really doesn’t matter. 😇 🇫🇷
Meet Bobby, the most faithful dog of Edinburgh. His story teaches us values of brotherhood, bond and friendship.
In 1850, John Gray of Edinburgh decided to work as a night watchman.To keep him company through the long winter nights John took on a partner, a diminutive Skye Terrier, his ‘watchdog’ called Bobby. Together John and Bobby became a familiar sight trudging through the old cobbled streets of Edinburgh. Through thick and thin, winter and summer, they were faithful friends.
John eventually died of TB in 1858 and was buried in Greyfriars Kirkyard. Bobby soon touched the hearts of the local residents when he refused to leave his master’s grave, even in the worst weather conditions.
The gardener and keeper of Greyfriars tried on many occasions to evict Bobby from the Kirkyard. In the end he gave up and provided a shelter for Bobby by placing sacking beneath two tablestones at the side of John Gray’s grave.
Bobby’s fame spread throughout Edinburgh. Bobby would follow William Dow, a local joiner and cabinet maker to the same Coffee House that he had frequented with his now dead master, where he was given a meal.
The kind folk of Edinburgh took good care of Bobby, but still he remained loyal to his master. For fourteen years the dead man’s faithful dog kept constant watch and guard over the grave until his own death in 1872.
William Brody sculptured the statue from life, and this is how that Scotland’s Capital city will always remember its most famous and faithful dog.

"Just over two years ago, I left New York to start working as a singer for a German cruise ship. For two months, I lived in Hamburg for rehearsals, and once I was on the ship, I woke up in a new country every day. It was equal parts amazing and bizarre. So I decided to start writing about it and, eventually, I realized some people enjoyed reading about my adventures into the Norwegian countryside, and where to find the best coffee in Helsinki. ⠀
Technology is amazingly accessible these days, so anyone with a bit of time and some hard work can put together a blog and start writing about their travels. Just find your niche, be authentic, and be a SPONGE! (I’m still sponging it all up. The travel writing community is constantly changing.)" @emilychughes⠀

Perhaps it’s apt that it was raining when I laid my flower underneath the Mother of Russia. A solemn moment for me as I grieved for my heart and Russian soul in St. Petersburg, Russia and those that perished in the 882 day Siege of Leningrad.
Escaping into the wonderful words of Stephen Cope 👌🏼 Any other interesting book recommendations, send them my way 🙏 #stayinginpjysallday

Il n'y a absolument rien d'impossible pour celui ou celle qui avance en travaillant, en développant son talent et en faisant preuve de l'intelligence relationnelle nécessaire. Écoutez, observez la nature et lisez beaucoup 😉
Selain cantik, air terjun leke - leke di Bali ini juga dikenal sebagai kawasan suci. .
Wisata di Bali ini juga terdapat genah (tempat) untuk melukat (meruwat). Ada dua pancuran disediakan bagi mereka yang ingin melakukan ritual suci tersebut..
Jadi tetap jaga etika, kesopanan, kelakuan serta perkataan saat liburan ke sini, ya!

I came back to this palace to see it without the veil of tears that I had two years ago. You see, two years ago I traveled internationally for the first time to my dream spot in Russia and met the most incredible person that would become my long lost friend in just 5 short days. Catherine’s Palace was our last tour and I spent the time holding back tears as we went through the palace, both for the historical part of my story with it being the main residence of the last Romanov family before their journey to Tobolsk and Ekaterinburg and for the amazing soul that I was now unsure if I would ever see again. It was supposed to be a one and done trip, after all. But life showed me the true path of passion for me shortly after and this year gave me the chance to see this palace again with that same friend when a person in our group visiting Russia gave up her ticket so I could see it one more time “properly.” It was just as lovely, but this time the tears were absent as my friend and I had found a way to keep in touch via the miracle of social media in this past year. It was great to be able to share the experience with others after I told most of them about my prior time here. Catherine’s Palace holds a special place in my heart for many reasons, its history is only but one of them.
What is one of the most picturesque views you've ever seen?
@yellowstonenps Artist Point was simply stunning and definitely a highlight of our trip. You can drive straight up to the viewpoint where you walk just .1 miles to get this amazing view of Lower Yellowstone Falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It was so picture perfect Gary and I kept saying it looked like a painting.
I'm not really a "relax" kind of person. A relaxed travel day for me is wandering through a cool little neighborhood looking for a coffee shop or wine bar, not resting at a hotel. Buuuuuut every once in a while I arrive somewhere and it is just 100% my jam, and I relish getting to lounge around the whole day. Although I still have been working here at @jwloscabos, I've been doing it from beach chairs and in between dips in a saltwater pool. Feeling sunkissed, oh-so-happy, and yes, v relaxed. 🙏

One look at Trim Castle’s stony outline against a dramatic Irish sky and storybook images of valiant warriors and timid monks spring to life.🏰
First time I got a flight of fleet 78 by Bombardier Dash 8 Q400, commonly known as Dash8 operated by Spice jet. It is of 2-2 cabin and low in height even the air bridge is not compatible to the height. So using only ground level 🚌 the passengers are carrying to the flight. To climb the ✈️ no extra 📶are required the door becoming the stair. .
The time was in early morning and awesome below view was lighten by the sun's glowing light during the flying. .
The origin of Dash 8 is in Canada in 1984. It is a series of turboprop-powered regional-airlines introduced by De Havilland Aircraft, Canada (DHC). DHC was later bought by Boeing in 1988, then in 1992 by Bombardier and lastly by Longview Aviation Capital in current year. .
Initially it was of capacity 37-40 seat for 100 series. Gradually the seat capacity was increase from 50-56, 68-69 for the series name 200 and 300 respectively. The 68–90 seats 400 series still in production from from 1999. The Q Series are post-1997 variants with noise suppression cabins.
In April 2008, Bombardier announced that production of the classic versions (Series 100, 200, 300) would be ended, leaving the Series 400 as the only Dash 8 still in production.
In 1970 the previous version was Dash 7 suitable for operating from small in-city airports. After that the short-field performance requirement dropped and Dash 8 emerged. .
The most distinguishing features of the Dash 8 are the large T-tail, a high aspect ration of wings, the elongated engine nacelles also holding the rearward-folding landing gear and the pointed nose profile.
The advantage of Dash 8 over Dash 7 are the better cruise performance, less expensive to operate, and much less expensive to maintain and due largely to having only two engines. It is a little noisier than the Dash 7.
