Day 9 - travel day! Off to the airport early in the morning to travel to the other state of Malaysian Borneo - Sarawak. Our destination: Kuching city. Kuching is the capital of Sarawak and it means "cat". There are cats everywhere - cats in roundabouts, cat sculptures, cat coffees, cat museum. I'm not that much of a cat lover (more of a dog lover here ☝️), but still, it was interesting. Not that many real cats wondering around really 🤔 Kuching also has major British influence. When we arrived, it was too early to check-in at the hotel so why not do a river cruise at Sarawak river to have a first impression of this city that is built on the riverbank? Then, we got to wonder around its streets and get to feel its vibes closer. It is a differeny city than the ones we had been before. Sandakan more of a fisherman city, industrial. Kota Kinabalu a beach destination with all its little islands nearby. And then Kuching - an artistic city - with lots of cute cafés, colourful graffiti paintings on the city walls, lovely food, vegan spots and little art galleries. Deffinately worth the visit. •
This photo was taken 10 minutes before landing. Kuching is right at the "end" of this serpentile river. How amazingly beaufiful is this natures' drawing? The more I wonder and travel this world, the more I feel grateful to be here, to experience this life of ours, so full of amazing wonders that someone or something created for us. We have one life. We have one shot to live it fully, to feel, to take risks, to succeed, to be happy. Don't take it for granted and do whatever it is that makes you feel complete, that makes you feel at ease with your shell. With your home. With what you decide how you want to live this precious limited time we have in this world 🌎 Just enjoy the journey 🙌🙏 #sarawak#kuching#malaysia#beautifuldestination#thesimplethingsinlife#bestspottotravel#earthfever#awesomespots#travelandlife#allbeauty_addiction#worldcaptures#epictravels#weareexplorers#exploretheglobe#nakedplanet#worldtravelpics#keepitwild#beautifuloutdoors#sabahtrip#borneo#borneomalaysia#oneplus6#bns_landscape#landscapecaptures#landscape#airplaneview#airplaneshots
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.' - Eleonora Duse. 📍 CONSTANZA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Finally I 'm back on IG. It's exactly two weeks ago now that I posted my last picture. Wanted to post some more beeing on the Dominican Republic, but almost on the last day of our travel my mobile was stolen. But this could not ruin our trip, we had a great time! •
Don't have a new phone yet, I can't choose between a Huawei or a Motorola (my stolen one was a Motorola). Today my new Sim-card arrived (a bit late because there was a strike at the semi-public Belgian Post Group Bpost) and for the moment I'm using an old mobile that I still kept somewhere in a lost corner 😊! •
So, about this picture, this is Constanza, a town in the beautiful region of La Vega Province, located in the Central Cordillera of the Dominican Republic.
Boasting an average elevation of 1,250 meters above sea level, Constanza is the highest altitude town in the Caribbean region. With those impressive heights come cool temperatures, rolling valleys blanketed in thick pine trees and an agricultural landscape that reveals a surprising departure from the beach. Breadbasket of the country, Constanza’s vast fields of vegetables–potatoes, cabbage, corn, and carrots, among others–flowers, and even strawberries can be seen while driving around the province. Its mountainside villages boast magical views over these fields, earning Constanza nicknames like “the Switzerland of the Caribbean” and “Valle Encantado” or the Enchanted Valley. •
