"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." ~ Leo Buscaglia
This was a good day. I woke up down in the valley, hiked barefoot 12 miles along the Na Pali Coast back to our car, then drove around the whole island up to this look out and watched the sunset over the valley we had been living in for the past few days. My feet look gross but I’m kind of proud of them, they carried me a long way.
Hay lugares que simplemente parecen de otro planeta. Y tener la posibilidad de encontrarlos, verlos, vivirlos, no tiene precio.
Escaparse un poco de los ritmos que te grita la ciudad, apurándote y que a veces digo "¿para qué?"...
Ese día era sábado, estaba a menos de 10 cuadras de la ciudad pero no me sentía cerca. Me desconecté... Prácticamente no toqué el celular.
Tomé mate, comí torta de vainilla con glaseado de limón, saqué fotos y lo único que me permití correr (para ver) fue la caída del sol.
Thanks for joining us today @kaelysoleil381 & Bentley!
I couldn't help suggesting a pit stop at Crescent Falls on our way home. The boys (Amos & Ben) 🐶🐶 were too busy watching a cat trying to enjoy it's afternoon hike to smile at the camera.
We made it to the mountains today!
This day trip was definitely needed to reset the mind & restore the soul. Working full time & part time is taking more out of me than I had anticipated, so being able to make it out West for the day is better than being able to sleep in (& I love sleeping in).
this could so be me right now. this sleepy tiger looks so cuddly, but then when he sprung up & started playing with a big stick, holding it down with his huge paws & tearing it to pieces with his huge teeth, i realised that no, in fact, this tiger was not cuddly & i did not want to be that stick 😯
This castle felt a little like the gateway to the Isle of Skye. I arrived as soon as it opened and managed to get a few shots without the crowds of tourists. If I ever go back I would have to go during a sunrise or sunset 😍
Up four flights of stairs in a converted mill in England's old industrial heartland is the bright and spacious workshop-come-showroom of @AJOTO. The Manchester based studio designs and manufactures high quality, elegant pens and other goods with custom components sourced from across Europe. From photographing the studio and talking with the brand's founder and creative director, Chris Holden, it's clear that for AJOTO and their customers, the journey is just as important as the destination.
Can you see what the sign says? >:) Taken in Swansea a few days ago.. loads of adventures to be had there. Will definitely be going back with the grappling hook! Stay tuned!
Thanks to all the new followers! Hopefully we're still on for 1k before the 27th!
Lets do it maaaaaates!

Another really awesome point this lady in the podcast talked about was the biochemical needs that humans have. If we have a real conversation with someone, when we laugh and cry and get inspired from each other, your body is feeling real emotions. That is a weird thing to say right? We all know that, or? Well..
What happens with your biochemical needs when you text message and send an emoji like this ->😂, absolutely nothing happens. You are not actually laughing out loud, because you sit in a train or in a bus stop. And you smart biochemical body is not feeling any strong emotions. So you could have 5000 conversations all at the same, your thumbs can have blisters on them..BUT in the end of the day you go home, sad as ever, because you had maybe 0 seconds really laughing
We have this super awesome thing with my best friends, we have REAL phone conversations! Can you remember that function that phones have, Calling someone and speaking with them with actual real, loud words? It’s the most awesome thing, really! And what also happens when you speaks with real loud words? You can actually laugh, even if your in the train and people will not look at you weird, maybe..
Of course the real, eye to eye talk is the best one you can ever have, but due to the busy lives this is not always possible. But it is definitely the most recommended method to get your endorphins up, and make your biochemical body happy as hell.
PS! This is also why I have written in my bio: DM me and let’s go explore! <- this would start the conversation with a DM and take it outside this app and into the REAL life. So yeah, If you are based in Switzerland or close by, Let me know, and we can go out to explore the nature and have a real conversations 👏🏼👏🏼
