To be a Christian who is willing to travel with Christ on his downward road requires being willing to detach oneself constantly from any need to be relevant, and to trust ever more deeply the Word of God. — Henri Nouwen
La Torre, construida por el ingeniero Francisco Ramón y el arquitecto Joaquín Pérez Nin y Landín, posteriormente modificada por el arquitecto Juan Orús, y en la ornamentación del edificio por el artista Emilio Soro, es una obra de hormigón armado que se eleva cuatro pisos sobre una base octogonal de unos 28 m² hasta rematar en una cúpula árabe de arquitectura bizantina que alcanza una altura de 23 metros. Sobre el estilo de esta construcción, única en la ciudad, vale anotar que se produce en la época contemporánea a las construcciones de los arquitectos italianos de inicios del siglo XX.
Today, walking on the beach, I met a guy with a metal detector. Two hours, a coffee and a grilled cheese later, we've uncovered the meaning of life, it's sad truths, and the pathological optimism that's needed to get by. Cheers to Vincent, the stranger who not only shares the same name as I, but also dialogues which provide answers to life's toughest questions.

The leading lines in Canada are a photographers dream.
The freight trains in Canada are THEEEEE LONGEST trains you will ever see! We were caught at a crossing more than once for 15 minutes waiting for them to pass.
Fortunately enough, that night’s partial lunar eclipse was visible across the UK, which allowed for me, here in London, to take an almost sequence of this beautiful and unique astrological phenomenon.
Astronomers say solar eclipses tend to occur about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse. In this case, a solar eclipse happened on the 2nd July - which was not visible here in the UK.
The most amazing thing about last night wasn’t the eclipse per se, but the amount of people who stopped by my tripod in Putney Bridge, asking what was going on. Some of them ended up staying around for a while too, watching. Most of them, didn’t have any idea an eclipse would be happening.
Everything was dull until you found me. Now let's leave the world behind to seek love which is meant to be. Not the kind of love that makes you frightened. Not the kind that makes you uncertain or confused or angry. But of kind which makes us calm like water in a lake. For love is not a destination but a journey. So take my hand and come with me, on a journey which will never end.
I love nothing more than mountains and oceans. However, coming in at a close 2nd is buildings, or more specifically Churches and Cathedrals. A quick day trip to Spain brought us past this amazing cathedral. The steps, the statues, the texture. Thanks @marlenem86 for being my tour guide. #portugaltravel#penedageres #🇵🇹
I’d always heard about the charm of the rural states in Malaysia, but I didn’t realise till last week I saw with my own eyes! Real beauty!! I mean just look at the colors and rustic it is 😍 built on stilts, covered with thatched roofs, enclosed with wooden walls, and perforated with windows and lattices and surrounded by fruits orchards. Isn’t it charming? OLD BUT GOLD ✨ I’ll keep this series coming from time to time. please stay tuned!

If you’re looking for a cheaper holiday this summer, Cyprus is definitely your best bet. One of the gems of the Mediterranean see, it has the charm of Greece, without the hassle and bustle of Mykonos or Santorini this time of year. Take a boat trip to Lara Beach and enjoy the cristal clear blue water and a calm sandy beach! .
Throwback to having a private hot spring tub in a teepee 3 years ago!! What a great place to celebrate an anniversary. This was stupidly affordable at the time and I’m assuming they have raised their prices. It would be pretty worth it though!
He viajado de múltiples formas y formatos. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En familia, en pareja, con una amiga, con muchos amigos, con gente recién conocida, sola. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En algún viaje organizado y también por mi cuenta.
Más rápido, más despacio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cerca y también muy lejos. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Con más lujos y con presupuestos muy reducidos.
En muchos medios de transporte: avión, tren, bus, moto, autoestop, furgoneta, bicicleta, caminando. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Muchos formatos y formas distintas. MUCHOS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
¿Y cuál es el mejor?
Desde mi punto de vista no hay "un mejor", hay un "el que mejor encaja contigo", con tus circunstancias, con tu momento actual.Tipos de viajes como gente hay en el planeta.
¿Vosotros qué opináis? ¿Cuál es vuestro formato de viaje? 🤔
13 yrs ago we headed to the hospital with our birth plan carefully printed out on a sheet of paper. When I think back to that time and our ‘first-time parent selves’, I have a giggle to myself and think, “Aww, that’s cute.” 🙄 You taught us that day that we were definitely not in control of this precious life or really any situation that we were about to take on. From that day on you have challenged us to be better parents. Thank you for putting up with us as we navigate through this challenging adventure known as parenthood with you as our first guinea pig. There really is no one like you on this entire planet. Today we celebrate you and your first day as a teenager. Happy Birthday Tanner, 13 looks good on you💚. @thesejonesys#familylife#adventurethatislife#travelbrood

All good if I just keep posting loads of mountain pics all the time? Cool.
We woke up in our treehouse in the himalayan mountain village of Tandi one morning to this epic view. Imagine this, but a 360 degrees version with mountain peaks and fluffy clouds all around. So dreamy.
Instead of the typical Bali swing photo on Gili during the sunset, I decided to opt for a more natural one 🙌🤙🌴 #islandvibes

I might have posted this waterfall a little too much but...I mean, just look at it! 😍 One of the dreamiest spots we visited in Laos, and despite its popularity it was easy to find a quiet spot to enjoy to yourself. Would you swim in these emerald waters? 🏊 +
Tokyo's a hot mess and I wouldn't mind being a hot mess over by the rice paddies in Tam Coc right now 💭

這天早上我們拜訪了Eames House — 1949年由Charles and Ray Eames設計興建，兩人直到1978跟1988年過世前都住在這邊，現為Eames Foundation所有，保留了完整樣貌開放預約參觀
能一窺全球知名設計師夫妻的工作室和居所讓我整一天都超亢奮的（他們最有名的作品就是 #EamesChair ）房屋落成時兩人邀請了一些好友在屋內舉辦了日式茶會，卓别林是其中一位出席的賓客。
Eames House座落在LA沿岸Pacific Palisades的山丘間，往裡面走眼前開始出現兩座半透明的挑高玻璃屋，就這樣優雅的在樹林間70個年頭，樹蔭、草地的氣味、鳥鳴、成為了房屋的外裝，身在當下時的空間感非常寬敞舒暢，在這邊短短兩小時就被Eames House散發的歷史魅力和平易近人卻又不凡的品味深深療養。
“Who is to say that pleasure is useless?”
“Take your pleasure seriously.”
"At all times love and discipline have led to a beautiful environment and a good life."
“The most important thing is that you love what you are doing, and the second that you are not afraid of where your next idea will lead.”
― Some favorite quotes from #CharlesEames

Perks of solo travel: Derek gets to rock a pedo-stache for a few months, and I don't have to hold anyone's sweaty hand in the Colombian heat.
Downside of solo travel: Derek has to plan his own meals. I worry about him doing risky things like trying to hitchhike in Namibia.

This fall, you can spend your Trimester 1 ISP in Monteverde, Costa Rica with MoSi: Monitoring Overwintering Survival of Neotropical Birds. You'll get to collect data of habitat use, survivorship, and ecology of unbelievably beautiful bird species. 🐦

They don't call this the Rockpile viewpoint for nothing .
In the middle of the summer, snow feels like a foreign concept. But we're kind of looking forward to the possibility of getting to hike in Colorado weather like this in the fall!

"In the streets of Panama City (literally), we teamed up with an urban innovation team to try out an idea we had. After noticing how busy the streets were around a preschool, we realized there were no crosswalks, no signs, and no speed bumps. We wanted to improve the safety for children seeking an education, so we grabbed some paint brushes and tape to create a combination of the three missing features." - @b.any.lane | 📸: @emaze___
I’ve been contemplating the nostalgia that we all inevitably feel from time to time for all the lives that we will never know. There’s a perpetual frustration that occurs as a result of being stuck in just one body that can only inhabit one place at any single time. Do you feel this too? How do we forgive ourselves for all the things that we cannot become?
The thing is, there are so many different ways of living a life, of being the person that you are. Some of them tougher, some of them sweeter - but you cannot be everything. This isn’t tragic or heartbreaking. It’s a kind of freedom, a kind of release. A kind of bright, soothing unleashing.
And if you are here with a beating heart, if you are experiencing the magic of consciousness, then you are the universe awakening to itself. How nuts is that? There is a hole in the world that only you can fit perfectly into. There is a fragment of it that no one can see but you.
Grab hold of your precious and unique life and hold on tight. There’s so much air to breathe.
“I am not what happened to me. I am who I choose to become”
✨ Carl Gustav Jung
You are not your past. You are the here and now. Don’t let your past experiences define you, but let them shape you. Learn from them, grow from them, and be the best you that you can be right here and right now. 💫 It’s time to let your future dreams be your North Star ⭐️
👉🏼While you may not be in control of the obstacles that life throws at you, you are in control of the path that you take around those obstacles... or in some cases, the path that goes directly through them 👊🏼 Fly into the future with open arms, a clear mind, and most of all - a welcoming heart.
'Nachi Falls is one of the most beautiful places I visited in Japan on my last trip. At 133 meters high, it’s the highest uninterrupted waterfall in the country. The shrine here is said to be inhabited by a Shinto spirit. 🇯🇵 ⛩' By @earthdreamtime
