Iguazú comes from an indigenous word that literally translates to “big water.” Legend has it that the place was created by a god who was spurned by a woman he wanted to marry when she escaped with her mortal lover down the river in a canoe. The god is said to have split the river so that they would be eternally falling. (Possibly it’s more likely, but less romantic depending on your point of view, that it is a volcanic plateau from a massive eruption 132 million years ago.)
This is a large u-shaped formation in the network of falls called the Devil’s Throat. .

Ha-gia get to be so beautiful!
Ok guys, I couldn't decide, which picture is your favorite? 🌟 To see more pics, including what this beauty looks like on the inside, make sure to go check out my stories 🌟
Also, here's why the Hagia Sophia is a must see while in Istanbul:🔸️The Hagia Sophia is one of the 7 ancient wonders of the World, primarily because of its quintessential Byzantine architectural style.🔸️It was originally constructed in 360 AD, destroyed in a fire twice,with the 3rd reconstruction you see still standing today from 537 AD. Wow, right?🔸️It took only 6 years to build, (perspective: Notre Dame took about a century)🔸️It was a former Christian patriarchal basilica (church); in 1453 became an imperial mosque (this is when the 4 minarets – tall, thin towers which are often found on a mosque – were added), and has functioned as a museum since 1935.🔸️Because of its history as both a church and a mosque, there are both Christian and Islamic elements and features on the inside, which is extremely rare to see. (Come see in my stories) 🔸️When it was built, it was the largest structure in the world as well as the world's largest cathedral until the Seville Cathedral was completed in 1520.🔸️Building the great dome, which is 55.6 meters tall & 31 meters in diameter, required more than 10,000 men. It was also the largest dome in the world until St. Peter's Basilica was built. .
Pretty amazing huh? Who else has witnessed the beauty of The Hagia Sophia, and what did you think?
This week was a super fun, challenging, amazing week. We knew we wanted to experience as much of Italy as we could in very little time, so we planned a crazy 6 day roadtrip. It honestly amazes us every time how much we are able to do and see when we set our minds to it and when we just go for it. 4.00am wake ups, 10 hour days driving, rushing to catch sunsets and actively seeking out adventure. This is our job and we wouldn’t change it for the world.
