I do not have words that would capture the emotions I felt while visiting the apartheid museum. I'm still processing this visit and don't fully know how to digest all that I took in. So many correlations to the African American struggle here in the US. I even had one moment where I had to stop and pray about one of the exhibits. My heart is broken by things I saw in this museum. But my heart is also filled with Joy in knowing that I serve a God who continues to walk in front of me, beside me and around me. With that, I stand on His promised and will push forward.
The sticks represent the colors of South Africa and the people. Each of us placed our sticks together as ONE PEOPLE! The rainbow nation has been through and still us going through a lot, but I must say, I have never felt more welcomed by a more kind group of people. To hear "welcome home sister" over and over was something I will never forget.

Thanksgiving is almost here!! Which in turn means Black Friday!! Who’s eyeing those flight deals?! We see new adventures up ahead! 🦃
After a whole day driving through the mountains, sliding from one side to another, approximately a thousand turns, we arrived at this amazing view point. In the back you can see the Greek Island Corfu 🌴
We chase the feeling of breathing in the air of new places.
Especially an unknown land to most tourists. With #FollowUpSiberia , we would love to discover Siberia and see what it is truly like.
We imagine it to be the land of hidden secrets where volcanos coexist with modern cities. Where the largest forest meets the planets oldest and deepest lake. A bit like the feeling of this photo where we are jumping into a brand new experience.
🇬🇧 Miyajima (宮島) is a small island less than an hour outside the city of Hiroshima.It is most famous for its giant torii gate,which at high tide seems to float on the water. The sight is ranked as one of Japan's three best views.While officially named Itsukushima,the island is more commonly referred to as Miyajima,Japanese for "shrine island".This is because the island is so closely related to its key shrine, Itsukushima Shrine,in the public's mind. Like the torii gate,the shrine's main buildings are built over water. Miyajima is a romantic place,best enjoyed by staying overnight at one of the island's ryokan.While there are usually many day tourists,in the evening the area becomes much quieter and more peaceful!
Miyajima is a really special place💚
Miyajima è una piccola isola a meno di un'ora dalla città di Hiroshima!Il nome ufficiale dell'isola é Itsukushima,ma é comunemente chiamata Miyajima,ossia "isola del santuario".Miyajima è un posto davvero romantico.Miyajima é ľisola sacra,dove non si nasce ne si muore(secondo la religione shintoista,le donne incinte o le persone anziane o malate devono lasciare ľisola sacra prima del parto o della dipartita)dove la sacralità del suo Torii vermiglio si erge in tutta la sua bellezza.Il torii durante ľalta marea sembra ergersi dal mare.Quando ancora ľisola non era turistica,i pellegrini dovevano passare sotto al torii in barca per purificarsi in modo da mantenere così la purezza dell'isola.La bellezza di questo luogo mentre ci avvicinavamo in traghetto ci ha lasciato senza parole e una volta scesi siamo riusciuti a percepirne la sacralità.Un paesaggio mistico,dove seduti davanti all'acqua abbiamo aspettato un commovente tramonto,circondati da un'aura di pace e serenità💚
The Seal Blubber Consortium otherwise known as the Monterey Bay Aquarium has been lying to the American public for millennia. Before Thomas Edison selfishly invented electricity the streets of Monterey were brighter and smelled better with the sweet scent of burning street lamp blubber. Now all of this precious tasty sea fat is being monopolized under the guise of education. Write your Congress representative NOW!
