Little sunset swim to finish off the day 🌅
Something that has changed drastically since moving to Sydney is that I force myself to make time for the outdoors at least once a day. I spent the day answering emails, editing videos and doing school work but forced myself to get out and do something that was selfish and just good for my soul! It’s soooooooo easy to get caught up in the day to day but something about being here makes me never want to take a single day for granted! So wherever you are in the world, try to force yourself to do one thing a day that isn’t necessarily the most productive, but is something that makes you feel good. I promise, it’ll change your life! 😚

Sunsets and hammock chill ❤️ Pretty much the everyday routine in the Philippines. Time here is going way too fast 🌴
Ogni tanto ripenso al mio viaggio in India, una terra magnifica dai contrasti forti. La natura, i monumenti e i panorami sicuramente lasciano senza fiato, ma è la sua popolazione che mi porterò per sempre nel cuore.
Do you prefer city life or nature? 🤔I get exhausted from going to tourist attraction after tourist attraction. Whenever I feel this way I turn to the locals for suggestions. -
They suggested that I go to this beauty today! The definition of a BALIGASM if we could make that a term. I enjoyed this peaceful walk with very few tourists and got some pretty cool drone footage 😎👌🏾. -
Comment below if you are a city traveler or nature traveler 🧳
Marabou Storks captured in Murchision Falls National Park in Uganda . Did you know that Marabous get much of their food through scavenging. They are also attracted to lion kills, domestic stockyards, plowed fields, and rubbish piles. #knowyourbirds 📷 Alex Barszap.
Walking the bridge over the river Khwae, aka The Bridge over the River Kwai 👣
(FYI: The locals apparently find it hilarious when tourists mispronounce Khwae as Kwai, as they are instead saying River Buffalo.) .
Earlier on in the day, I visited the Thai-Burma Railway Museum; a well presented and informative museum detailing the building of the railway linking Thailand with Burma (Myanmar) by the Japanese Army during WWII.
Whilst the building of the railway was arguably an impressive feat of engineering, 13 000 Prisoners of War perished during its construction as a result of horrific conditions, along with an even higher number of Asian labourers.
The museum is a sober, eye-opening experience, and sits opposite the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery which is home to nearly 7000 graves.
By contrast, the bridge has an almost festival-like atmosphere. Visiting at sunset, it was teeming with other tourists, all busy taking selfies and group photographs, laughing and joking. Next to the bridge, stalls offer snacks, drinks and the opportunity to buy souvenirs.
Whilst still processing the lasting effect the museum and cemetery had on me, it saddened me that so many people visited the bridge purely as a tourist attraction, seemingly without knowledge or appreciation of the huge loss of life associated with this period of history.
Lest we forget ♥️
Bought Darcey this necklace for Valentines Day and inside it says I love you in 100 different languages.⠀
I’ve been thinking about it and remembered once reading something about there being millions of ways to say it...⠀
-Let me know when you are home safe⠀
-Put your seatbelt on⠀
-Don’t forget to eat⠀
-I want to help ⠀
So many different ways, you just have to listen. To love and be loved is the greatest thing in the world 💛
DID YOU KNOW- When the Spanish invaded and captured ATAHUALPA (the last Inca Emperor) lead by Francisco Pizarro, ATAHUALPA offered and gave the Spaniards a room filled with gold and silver in order for his freedom. ⠀
The still found him guilty based on idolatry and sentenced him to be burned,which ATAHUALPA did not want ,as the Inca believed that their soul could not go to the afterlife if the body was burned. He was then converted into Catholicism,baptised and strangled instead. ⠀
There was also the case of Yale university who in 2010 “agreed” to return thousands of artefacts taken from Machu Picchu back to Peru! Look at that! And last year paperwork was commenced to return back to Cusco the golden relic ‘Sun of Suns’ which has been part of a permanent collection in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian...I look it’ll look better in Cusco.
