Update: Wow so that was way funnier/more awkward than expected. I was going to delete this but some of your comments are making me burst out laughing here in the airport. Thanks for putting up with my weird requests. Ps: size 9 is sample size for men's shoes, this is for a photo shoot so need a human with the right size feet😊 -
Hi friends! So any of you guys a size 9 and available for paid international travel Oct. 4-12?

Getting out of my comfort zone has been a regular occupancy whilst travelling. Always keen to try new things, experience more and grow as a person.
Before leaving home I guess I would have considered myself a "safe" person. Now I've sky dived, bungee jumped, paraglided and scuba dived throughout the world and now stood on top of this huge waterfall in Morialta Conservation Park taking in the fantastic view 😊🤙 What have you done lately to get out of your comfort zone?
Value of life
As usual, I haven't written or posted a thing since a few days now. Unfinished images from the photowalk compelled me to come back and post again. This picture, look at it, a knife and a hen in the cage, depicts two things for me. I remember Premchand's 'Do bailon ki gaatha' (Stories of two buffaloes) One of the buffalo, tied to a pole, tries to flee but the other one, afraid, tells him not to. The first one, calmly says, so what if we will be beaten to death, at least we will have freedom from this life. As I said, the picture depicts two things for me. Life itself is nothing, it stays on, in some form or the other. Two, life may bring you cages, death may bring you freedom!! The caged, being weak against humans, will anyhow be liberated. While the butcher, he is still in a cage, he can't go out of it. He has to, has to, has to, be a butcher... What else!! All it depends on how desperately you want it!
Huge shout out to one of our @meetup organisers Dale @frogmandale while he hikes through Nepal and around Everest. Check out his page and be sure to keep in touch with his adventure! His pics are amazing.
“Looking down over the village of Thame.
Home of Tenzing Norgay who summited Everest first with Hillary and then Apa Sherpa who has summited Everest 21 times, the tea house is full of Guinness World Records certificates.
Word on the street is we are having eggs and chips for tea, it’s amazing what they can knock up!!"
The best until last. I can't resist old Greek doors and dogs. Both together was luck, the dog was so funny, he was on his own but on a mission - no sniffing, dawdling, or being distracted by my attempts to lure him closer for a stroke, instead he quickened his pace and shot past. I loved this old house high up overlooking the sea in the distance. I renamed it the Captains house and it now has a completely made up history - would love to have looked inside.
I keep thinking about the installation Srinagar by Praneet Soi @sursockmuseum
Soi worked with local craftsmen in Srinagar to create experimental patterned papier-mâché tiles based on historical designs they still work with today. The art of papier-mâché and some of the motifs came to Kashmir from Iran. Soi wanted to explore these disappearing traces of Sufi culture and the related migration of ancient patterns from Iran into the sub-continent.
It makes me want to visit India... Or should I go to Iran?
Traveling always appears as the first option on our minds while planning for escapes but something goes wrong when it comes to settling down there.
The tasks we are stuck in, the responsibilities we have undertook, the quagmires we have dragged ourselves into.. all this is permanent and our escapes are temporary!
Esapes from mundane routines, escapes from the stress of meeting deadlines and escapes from the negativities around. How brave we really are to continue this path for permanent escapes and settling down?
Settling down permanently is always an option when these layers beneath the sky depict how beautiful such decisions can be.
Settling down permanently is the ultimate happiness when clouds call you to hum their tune along.
Settling down permanently is the sane commitment while a plethora of limitations are stopping you.
Where have you planned to settle down permanently?
