Having a mini-adventure from Calgary to the Alberta badlands. After visiting the world famous Royal Tyrell Museum, we went into town and Hello Kitty made friends with a real dinosaur. Now we are finishing up and heading off to the UNESCO Heritage Site of Dinosaur Provincial Park.
❤️🖤❤️ #unescoworldheritagesite#aapravasighat ♥️ 🔝 When you are in Mauritius’s capital Port Louis I highly recommend to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site Aapravasi Ghat (Hindi: आप्रवासी घाट, immigration depot). ◼️ The building complex is located at the Indian Ocean seaside and was the spot where Mauritius welcomed as first British colony contracted labor workforce from India after slavery was forbidden in the British Empire. 🖤 From 1849 to 1923, half a million Indian indentured laborers passed through the Immigration Depot and were then transported to plantations. The large-scale migration changed the society in Mauritius, Indian people constituted a substantial proportion of the national population. 🖤 Today 68 % of the current total population is of Indian ancestry. The Immigration Depot has thus become an important reference point in the history and cultural identity of Mauritius. 🖤 Aapravasi Ghat is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2006. Due to unchecked infrastructural development in the mid-20th century only the partial remains of three stone buildings from the entire complex have survived. Conservation efforts are underway to restore the fragile buildings back to their 1860s state. ◼️ From my point of view it is obligatory to visit this history-charged place, also when it is not really spectatulous and impressive. But #history counts. 😉 #unescoworldheritage ❤️🖤❤️
A #VideoVignette over #Ålesund , Norway, at 10:45 PM along the hike up to Mount Aksla, with the archipelago and #Sunnmøre Alps surrounding the city and the Norwegian Sea to the West. In the summer months, the sun sets after 11 PM, lighting up the sky in hues of red and orange well past midnight. The #hike up to the viewpoint at Mount Aksla has 418 steps, conveniently numbered along the way up. On the way down, take the less traveled path behind the viewpoint along the ridge, leading you right into town.

One of the most surreal places that I've been to in Thailand . The Buddha head embedded in the tree roots in the grounds of Wat Mahathat, Ayutthaya. Definitely worth a visit - it is only an hour and a half drive from Bangkok, if that!
