Walking to the Alpine garden ⛰🌼
La Rambertia is a botanical garden situated between two rocky outcrops at the top of Rochers de Naye. The garden has almost 1000 alpine plants (such as Edelweiss) and is a perfect activity before you embark on a hike in the area.

🇺🇸 What I like about oceans is that they are unpredictable.
Some days, everything is peaceful and we enter with confidence.
Other days, huge waves smash everything in their path.
The ocean has no half measure, it calms, it fascinates, it terrifies
And at the end, it's a bit like love... And you, what inspires you the ocean? 🇫🇷 Ce que j'aime à propos des océans, c'est qu'ils sont imprévisibles.
Certains jours, tout est paisible, et on y entre en toute confiance.
D'autres jours, des montagnes d'eau se déplacent et emportent tout sur leur passage.
L'océan n'a pas de demi-mesure, il apaise, il fascine, il terrifie.
Et au final, c'est un peu comme l'amour ...
Et vous, que vous inspire l'océan ?
Welcome to Beli, the ancient center of the northern part of the island of Cres. An oasis of powerful and wild nature. The town is charmly situated on the top of a 130 m hill and the surroundings are dominated by the mysterious labyrinths, Celtic tombs and Roman ruins, proud griffon vultures circling the skies and dolphins which play in the blue sea.
Dramatic landscapes forever making me feel so small in this world! 🌍
I love being in places that show you the enormity of what this planet has to offer... constantly in awe and feeling grateful I get to experience these outstanding places
С чем у вас ассоциируется лето?
У меня с земляникой. Ох, как она пахнет во время полуденного зноя!😍
А земляники в этом году было очень много. Я в жизни столько ягоды еще не видела.😅 Все поля красные и ягодка крупная. Сезон на удивление был долгим и ягоды я наелась вдоволь. Ребенок счастлив, лето удалось.
So came the day of the little prince's departure.
'Oh! I shall cry,' the fox said.
'It is own fault,' the little prince replied. 'I meant you no harm but you wanted me to tame you.'
'Yes, that is so,' said the fox.
'But you are going to cry!' said the little prince.
'Yes, that is so,' said the fox.
'Then it has not done you any good!'
'It has done me good', the fox said, 'because of the colour of the wheat fields.'
Split was an appropriate name for the place where we parted ways. I walked you to the bus station, quiet, defeated in the knowledge that you would return to your life before me while I'd continue being wild.
'I'll talk to you soon, okay?' The last promise you couldn't keep just before you embarked and slipped right out of my story. Easy and casual, like water washing over rocks on the shore.
In the end, just the same question remains, the question that you always have to ask yourself: Having cared for someone, does that make up for the sting of losing them?
Now everytime I think of the clear blue water and the long nights on the islands, I can't help but think of you. With every sunset spent alone, with every bottle of red that I can't share with you, I will miss you.
But in time I will forget that it ended and only remember with sweetness how it existed.
Did you ever meet someone - a friend, a lover, a wise old wizard - that had an impact on your life but isn't a part of it anymore? Have you managed to stay in touch with your travel friends?
I followed this guy for longer than I’d like to admit to get this shot 😂
It feels very @sixstreetunder .
So excited to share some of these London pics of me and Abi having the most chilled time. I still have pics from Paris to share too! The feed might get a little messy...
The first guy I was infatuated with and I were a very very bad match and made each other mad and miserable as often as possible 😂😂 When I think of it today I'm laughing and wondering what on earth I was thinking.. when I was in university me snacking would be a huge chocolate bar and cheetos 😨😨 when I think of it today I wanna vomit ..I am an evolved human lovelies 😃😃 today I will celebrate not eating or sleeping with things and people that are bad for me anymore.. And you ? What will you celebrate today ? 🎉🎉🎉🎉
Great post from @kaptain.kenny
Kaptain needs your help!! ☹️ So about a month ago I started the page @teamkaptainkenny to feature our fellow Kaptainites (thanks for the term, @whatkristacaptures!) and so far it’s going really well. The page has about 35% engagement (wow, wish this page could have that, lol!) and lots of people are lining up to do story takeovers. First we started with one from @aprilveralynn, then @leocavazzana then @jyotsnadj but sadly the problems started when @whereintheworldismiha tried to log in from Romania.
It didn’t matter what we did - it just wouldn’t allow her access. In the end she emailed me all her story slides and I loaded them myself. I thought a few days’ break would calm the issue down and just then @pacifiquegirl tried to log in from Papua New Guinea and it simply wouldn’t work.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can show IG that it’s okay that many people all over the world are logging in? I know it looks dodgy and spammy to them but this is a “community” account - the aim is to get lots of talented people from around the world to contribute and share their info, for their own advertisement as well. Profit for one, profit for all! But if I have to keep receiving everyone’s slides and doing it all myself that will be a nightmare. Help! #teamkaptainkenny#kaptainkennycollabcamp
P.S how amazing is this beach in #newzealand 🇳🇿? It’s called #hotwaterbeach and you literally bring a shovel and dig yourself a hot bath right here 😱❤️
I absolutely love watching the starry sky, so for a while now it has been my goal to see and photograph the milky way. I tried in Canada and drove out to the middle of nowhere with little light pollution, constantly afraid I’d get attacked by a coyote or a bear, but I didn’t manage to get it. Then this Sunday when I went to where I grew up, relatively close to the city, to photograph the shooting stars, there it was in all its glory! Getting a shooting star in the picture was just the cherry on top. Have you seen the Milky Way?
“Life may be an arcane riddle, a play with many complementary acts or an unfinished chronicle with odd sequences. Still and all, whatever we might think or do, let us above all be attentive and expectant, since everyone is waiting for the pieces to fall into place, at one time or another.”
“The supreme goodness is like water.
It benefits all things without contention.
In dwelling, it stays grounded.
In being, it flows to depths.
In expression, it is honest.
In confrontation, it stays gentle.
In governance, it does not control.
In action, it aligns to timing.
It is content with its nature and therefore cannot be faulted.” - Lao Tzo
What is it about waterfalls that make them so beautiful?! I’ve been contemplating this question and recently came across a Ted talk by Raymond Tang. He breaks down this ancient philosophy about water in The Tao Te Ching shared above. There are three lessons we can gather from this proverb.
1. Humility - water gives life to everything around it. It supports the growth of vegetation and keeps animals alive. Instead of promoting the success and glory of oneself, it is much more satisfying and fulfilling to promote that of others.
2. Harmony - although water runs into obstacles, it simply flows around it. We all run into many obstacles throughout our life, but instead of fighting against them, working with your environment and the things you can control to find the solutions.
3. Openness - water is adaptable and open to change. Depending on the environment water can be liquid, solid, or gas. Water also conforms to the medium it is contained in. In a world that is constantly changing, being flexible and having the ability to adapt will only allow you to experience life to the fullest and realize your full potential.
The three lessons abbreviate to H-H-O or H2O 😮. What are your thoughts?

Perfect spot & perfect wedding.
Cheers to a lifetime of good family and friends.
Congrats Taylor & Casey!
Nestled among the miles of farms this place was amazingly photogenic, it was thoughtfully designed and full of surprises.
What's your preference- the city or the Country?
the midnight sun phenomenon is something that everyone should try to experience at least once in their lifetime. this photo was taken at midnight in july and was the darkest that the day ever turned. 🌙
iceland, you’re pure magic. 💫
I took a 20 minute nap 😴 on the side of the highway right before we went chasing waterfalls 💦
Truthfully, best decision EVER. Please don’t drive sleepy.
In other news, this spot is a pretty easy paved hike in the Smokey Mountains ⛰
#Patience is a recurring theme for me at the moment. I’ve learnt how to put patience into practice over the years but I love planning and get itchy feet when things aren’t moving forward. Patience is a virtue and getting annoyed about circumstances that are out of our hands won’t make anything happen any quicker. Take a deep breath, take your time and everything will fall into place. Good night 💫

Hey everyone, remember me? I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t 😅 I’ve basically been MIA this entire summer, but I’ve been spending it working and hanging out with the people I love! (P.S thanks to everyone who stuck around!) Anyway, my trip to Banff, Alberta is only 12 days away and I am SO EXCITED! I can’t wait to finally have some amazing content to share! ⛰ •
How have you all been?! Tell me the best/most exciting thing you’ve done in the past few months in the comments! 👇🏼 I’m dying to catch back up with everyone. My exciting things this summer were turning 21🥂 and going to Montréal, QC and Syracuse, NY with my boyfriend!♥️
As I mentioned before I am trying to cut out dairy 🥛 so I tried out an oat milk latte the other day. I couldn’t help but laugh about @jimgaffigan and his comedy about all the different types of mills there are. If you haven’t seen any of his stuff I definitely recommend it- he is hilarious. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyway, I’m curious to see how many of you have tried oat milk or if you stick to soy, almond, coconut, cashew or good old cows milk!? Let me know your favorite below!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sunset in Yellowstone without a soul around 🌅 After being surrounded by crowds upon crowds as we hit the classic sights of America’s first National Park, this moment of peace and serenity on this secluded lake was just what I needed ✨ Edited with one of my new sunset #splopresets that I’m working on!
The Weeping Window, is at its last stop before heading back to the Imperial War Museum and it just so happens to be at my work- so moving to see something that resonates with my family history ❤️ #middleportpottery
