The winding and twisting walls leading into the view of the Treasury. These walls spear their own stories. In some of the photos you will see a sort of trench built into the walls that is to help with drainage , allowing the animals and people to use the water that was dripping off the wall. Cool huh??!! The best time to come and photograph this is early morning because we were one of the first people yesterday’s to explore this maze. I really really enjoyed this adventure in Petra yesterday walking 19kms and 183 floors up according to the iPhone health app that no one uses. Interesting facts. Thanks to @w4rd4n for helping me choose a camera for this trip, as you can see it has massively paid off. I love theee images and once a get home a cheeky bit of editing could make them even more amazing. Today we are driving back to Amman and over the next couple of days we will be based out of Amman taking day trips. Jordan has really surprised me. I was expecting a country similar to Egypt and it presently isn’t. The country side is dry but reasonable clean and the people are so friendly. #recommended#jordan#exploration#amman#petra#stone#walls#geckos#bustrip#cool#maze#friendlypeople#kind#alittleexpensive#chill#dreamtrip#exploring_the_earth#highlight#greatlocalfood#fresh#care#freewifi#onbus#raininpetra#wouldbecool#2018#gapyear
"Hey man, we all can't be like you. I wish we were all rose-coloured, too." I have officially renamed Pink City "Roseville". Jaipur was originally painted terracotta pink in 1876 to welcome Prince Albert, and since then, all the buildings have remained this way. The Maharaja's wife actually convinced him to pass a law making it illegal to paint buildings in the old city any other colour. #wakeuproseville (4/4/18)
Au pair Testimonial from Michaela, OVC Hillcrest 💙
“I have been in California for almost 4 months and I have seen and done so much and have so much more to do. We all signed up to the Au pairing program because we wanted to travel or love kids or plainly don’t know what it is that we want to do with our lives just yet! Let me be the one to tell you that you’ll be getting more out of this program than you think. I look after a 8 month baby boy who was 4 months when I arrived here, I don’t even know where to begin. I have been here and experienced some of his most important factors of his life, I was here when he took his first swim lesson, when he started crawling, even when his first tooth came through and I’ll probably be here when he takes his first steps. It brought and brings me immense joy to have the privilege to be apart of these moments, that’s what it’s about!”
Started at the bottom (Wellington Heath) now we’re here (Wellington) 🇳🇿 Big up Aotearoa and a bloody fantastic bunch of human beings for the best two months of my life ❤️ I really have no words to describe just how amazing this trip was ✨ Photo credit goes to @brdgz because although I called Wellington my home for a month I somehow didn’t manage to get up Mount Victoria once, choosing to spend the majority of my time in bars instead 🙃 See you soon old Blighty, you sexy son of a gun!
Hello my dear followers who expected more of this than I put in to it.
Considering I’m already sitting in a train somewhere in Germany on my way to the Re-entry Seminary and knowing I barely posted throughout my time in Salamanca I thought I might revive this account and share a few stories about my work and life in Spain in the following weeks.
What I can already tell you is that I’m very grateful for the time and especially for the people that donated to make this whole thing possible!
Salamanca will always be a home for me and not only because the city is beautiful but also because of all of the people that I can call friends if not even family now!
If you want me to talk about specific things fell free to ask questions in the comment section!
(Btw the pic is the sign outside of the café where I was working)

YOU ARE NOT RICH UNTIL YOU HAVE SOMETHING MONEY CAN'T BUY.
Everything you do in life is a reflection of you. Your actions show who you truly are. Show the world your greatness and don't hide it.
You are destined to achieve great things. Be determined to show your best self and commit to living your best life.
Money will not buy you happiness. Show love and appreciation for those special people that share your journey. They are the source of all the happiness you will ever need.
Thank you @ncsyes and @only1argyle for the invitation.
