"Travel is like love, mostly because it's a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity, and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end." - Pico Iyer
Yeni bir Ahmet Kaya şarkısı dinleyemeyecek olmak kadar çaresiz bırakır hayat bazen seni. " O mahur beste çalar , Müjgan'la ben ağlaşırız " dinlersin biraz olsun soğur için. "Büyüdün yavrum sende " diye devam edersin ardından " Demedim mi Haydar" gelir , hüzünlü bir mutluluk kaplar yüzünü umutlanırsın. Devrimci bir umut tohumu düşer içine " Biz dostu da düsmanı da elbet biliriz " dizeleriyle. " Sevgi Duvarı " tablo olur karşında , izlersin saatlerce. "Hani benim gençligim nerde " diye isyan ederken "Beni bul anne " ile dönersin en masum en korumasız dönemlerine. Hayat gibi adamdı Ahmet Kaya ; Ondandır bu kadar sevmelerim ve özlemlerim . Toprağı bol olsun..
I spent my 35th birthday with the oldest trees on earth, some 5000 years old. It's incredible to think of something living for that long, through so many eras of human history. Maybe these trees whispered some secrets to me while I was among their branches, being welcomed into my own next era. // 🌲 Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, California
Hoodoos at #sunset . This is a shot of Grand Staircase - Escalate from my #27monuments project a couple months ago, just as the sun dipped into a hole in these amazing "rock goblins." GSE is one of the #nationalmonuments that Secretary Zinke has recommend Trump reduce. It was one of the highlights of my trip and it's way up at the top of #monuments I hope to revisit. The fight to protect these sacred PUBLIC lands continues. #MonumentsForAll#keepitpublic#connectedstates
Day 136. After my extended zeros in Bend, my body somehow adjusted to where I'm more awake in the morning to do the big uphills. The trail brought us all the way down Glacier Lake last night and being the Pacific Crest Trail that it is, we hit the big switchback up that morning almost to the same elevation. It was a hot, sunny day, but the abundance of huckleberries on the trail made it pleasant. After picking up our resupply boxes at Stevens Pass Lodge, and disappointingly finding out that the restaurant is close, we hitched to town. Change of plans then resulted in us spending the night in Skykomish. There were plenty of hikers at the Cascadia Inn. We filled our starving bellies with the usual, can't-go-wrong bacon cheeseburger for lunch, a late lunch. After getting cleaned up and getting settled for a bit, it was time for dinner. We then hit the local pub, where we joined White Rabbit and his friend. #pct2017#trekthepct#thetrek#pctig#pacificcresttrail#rx100v#sonyrx100
More than likely, my posts for the next few days are gonna be from this time last year at #RMNP . I'm going through archives and I can't believe how vibrant the colors were in the park. I hope they're still hanging around when I'm back home, so I can at least catch the tail end of the colorful season.🍁🍂🍃 #viewcolorado
What's your most romantic travel story? We sat right here at the edge of this seemingly 90 degree staircase with our legs dangling over the side. We had just finished eating a home cooked meal provided by a farmer from that little village below us. Behind us, our tents were set up, waiting for the sun to set so that we could sleep underneath the night sky within the ancient watch tower. We were sipping on our delicious Chinese beer, chatting about our next adventure. Then, he executed one of the biggest surprises. On one knee, with ring in hand, he asked if I could go on that next adventure with him as his fiancée. It was perfect. Now, here we are over a year later, just 6 weeks away from our next adventure, which will end with us being husband and wife. Can't wait!
One amazing road trip WOW, nearly 7500km covered over the two islands and more stops than I could count due to the insane beauty of this amazing country. BIG thanks to @gorentalsnz they provided us with this awesome 4x4 that's taken us everywhere we needed to go and we had some fun with the snow and getting the chains on to see the winter games 👌🏻. Absolute Trip of a lifetime, this is my third time in NZ but the first time travelling with a car and it's just the best way. So much freedom and the quiet beautiful roads are just a joy to drive on. Deffo coming back for a 4th time 😂. Already looking forward to it. ❤️🇳🇿👌🏻
