Sometimes it's hard to get the size of a 50m-60m yacht through pictures but this one does M/Y Khalilah justice for sure. Launched in 2014 by Palmer Johnson Khalilah is 48m/147ft long with a width of 11m/36ft and an in-house design. She is capable of doing 30 knots flat out. *

Every kind of sea turtle is under threat because people hunt them for their shells and meat, and steal eggs from their nests. 😔 Some species were almost poached to extinction until people started taking great efforts to protect them. 🛡 Kemp's ridley sea turtles nest almost exclusively on a beach along Mexico's Gulf coast, Rancho Nuevo. This video shows an armed officer from the Mexican Federal Police standing watch over their nests to ensure their safety. ⚔️ 📹 by @abcnews 🙌

"When I say I want to travel,
I don't mean I want to stay at fancy resorts or buy keychains from souvenir shops.
When I say I want to travel,
I mean I want to explore another place and become part of it.
I want to discover coffee shops & hidden streets in Europe.
I want ro hike mountains & walk along quiet beaches.
I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same.
I want to photograph the people and places I see.
I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on Earth.
I want to see things with new eyes.
I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I have been to, the people I have met & the things I have seen.
This, I think, is what is at the heart of adventure and that is exaclty why I plan on making my life one." ~ Unknown <-- wish I knew who wrote this originally! Have always loved this quote! ❤❤❤ .
