Now for a different part of Africa: Likoma Island in Lake Malawi. Though it lies just off the coast of Mozambique, it belongs to Malawi thanks to the arrival here of English missionaries in the 19th century (Malawi was a British colony, Mozambique Portuguese). www.timetowander.com.au
♥️ HEAVENLY VISUALS! ♥️
There's a reason behind every aspect of this universe, countless inanimate objects, life on earth, the very purpose of human birth and many more!
Similarly, there are reasons behind each trek I have undertaken. One among them is to experience NATURE!✌️
By experiencing, I am referring to the form of communication one can have with the NATURE and feel the perception of being EMBRACED. All through the SENSES!🙂
Typically, I prefer to trail the trekking group. I walk at my own pace! Remember, it's never a competition up there! It's pivotal to practise/achieve such a mindset! This way I can achieve the said objective!😀
And, of course, Photography comes along! It's a blessing to experience scenes like these!
♥️ This is so DIVINE! ♥️

When I was little I use to think #water is either transparent or its dirty water and its always a little salty(i grew up in hard water 🙄) Until I went to #mountains and realized water can be of a lot different colors and mountain water is sweet and tasty ❤
I love drinking from these open sources as it's tasty and in my mind every drop is making me strong as its coming staight from the mountains full of minerals😍
I have also seen the effect of a this water whenever I have felt even a little sick, 2-3 glasses before sleeping and there will be a Good morning next day.
Tried and tested by a Doctor 😎🙋 It's amazing how the most awesome of medicines and energy sources are free and in abundance , we just have to have a little zeal to reach upto them 🙏
Are you taking advantage of these Life giving resources once in a while 😒

Spent some beautiful days in Mister Rogers' hood this weekend ☀️ Our Fall/Winter travels largely surround the hockey schedule, so in between watching our guy play his guts out in a tourney, I made sure we got out to explore some of the goods of the Burgh. Delicious eats at family-owned @dianoiaseatery, time paying respect to veterans at the war monuments & sharing fond childhood memories of Fred Rogers at the Tribute to Children Statue along the North Shore, roaming #SteelersCountry @heinzfield, soaking in breathtaking views of the City atop the 140 year old the Duquesne Incline and capping off with a (hard-to-watch🙈) Leafs-Pens game @ppgpaintsarena in support of #HockeyFightsCancer 💜 were memory-makers. Have you visited Pittsburgh What are some of your fave places to explore & dine #LovePGH #HOKTravels
SIDEBAR🤔: while away, we were asked for our position on some hostile remarks made in Canadian media last week about hockey families. To be honest, I hadn't seen it until our car ride home - too busy engrossed in things totally contrary to what was generalized. But while disheartening, I chose to refrain. Not because I don't have opinions (my nearest and dearest know this mama bear is full of those), but because there's just so many more constructive uses of our time & action always speaks louder than opinion. I mean, imagine how much more uplifting our feeds, media viewing & communities could be if we all spent a little more energy giving a piece of our hearts rather than a piece of our minds So, that's what we're choosing to do - to keep looking at the world with a more empathetic lens, to use our platform to spread a little more light...just like Mister Rogers would do. As we enter a fresh week to do a little better, I hope you will too 💖
'SMONDAY; The moment Sunday stops feeling like a Sunday and the anxiety of Monday kicks in.' Sunday Scaries There's a bourbon cocktail for that. #latergram of my Lark a Fare Old Fashioned Cocktail I sucked down during my recent #LFK bar crawl. Lark Bourbon Blend, Bonded Apple Brandy, Port Wine, Applewood Smoked Maple, Aromatic Bitters, & Flamed Orange Oil. Repeat patron now at this @wineenthusiast and @archdigest featured foodie find, @lark_a_fare is fighting the good cocktail fight in my #1 collegiate town. If only my old college self had an old-fashioned budget and parallel palate. #larkafare #lawrenceks 🥃🍁💦🕊🗓🍊🌾🔥😱🏈🌻💙❤️
In a hurry up world, it’s ok to slow down. How did you spend your Sunday
Me: brunch at @waspenhotel, a long hike, $20 glass(es) of rosé, shopping the 60% off sale at @o2aspen & now cozied up watching @philadelphiaeagles 🦅
The Siege of Leningrad told by those who were children at the time. Told primarily in the experience of that first winter with a young family’s letters interwoven in the story, Vanya in the army and Alya stuck in the city with newborn and toddler boys.
The interviewees talked of the changing social behavior with the declining health, remarking if you fell no one helped you up because they would fall too leading to the story of dying where you fell, or even stopped to rest, struggling with lack of strength to regain momentum. Stories of death, disappearance (leaving and never returning due to death), ration fights and hallucinations with lack of nutrition; but also the engineered normalcy of routine, with school children working to secure buildings with fire prevention, schools staying open, and the social responsibility of maintaining the city in the spring, mail service continuing, factories continuing to work, etc. The children remembered what became city specific holidays which marked occasions that kept the spirit of the city alive, if just barely, like New Year of 1942 as city administrators went all out preparing festivities to boost moral, the moment when the siege began to break January 18, 1943 and liberation on January 27, 1944.
Not the best in terms of film presentation but the story arch was different for the narrative it chose to present, “as a child, it was like this...” Loved the comment at the end of “the city is an open air museum” as anywhere you go in the city, there’s a Siege story.

The better half: 💗
You are not my better half
I am complete on my own
So are you
We were not two halves who came together to form a whole
We were two wholes who consciously decided to build something that's greater than the sum of its parts
That something we build might not be eternal.
One day, you might decide to leave.
And when that happens, I will not be shattered
I will not be ripped into half
I will still be whole
I will still be complete
