Upgraded our tent to a hobbit hole for the night, since we aren’t LOTR fans we couldn’t justify a hobbiton tour, so we glamped hobbit style on a farm instead...the best air b&b so far... #glamping#hobbitlife#airbnb#hobbithole#lotr ⛺️🍄🍃🏠
Wentworth Falls, in the Blue Mountains National Park west of Sydney, is Australia's 15th highest waterfall; it has a total height of 187m (614 ft). A multitude a trails can be followed for views from above, by, and at the base of the falls.
🇮🇹 Throughout Italy, there are so so so many cities steeped in history. Yet Florence -- known by locals as Firenze -- arguably rises above them all. It is the Renaissance art capital of the world, with stunning museums like the Uffizi, Accademia, Bargello, Palazzo Davanzati and the Medici Chapel (to name just a few...)
🖼️ But the contemporary art scene is thriving too, and several well-known street artists have made their mark on the walls around town. And that doesn't even take into account the flavours of Florence (to be discussed in a future post)!

Bobbing along in tropical waters is a lot more pleasant when you’re not having to paddle away from floating litter. 🥤
This cove we hiked to was relatively clear of discarded waste, but the same thing can not be said for the rest of the island.

A reminder on this #WorldWaterDay : we all share the responsibility of taking care of the earth God gave us.
If we want to continue to enjoy the beauty of natural wonders like this one, we cannot ignore issues such as unsafe/contaminated water sources.
The truth is, it’s a problem that effects a whole lot more than just the quality of our travels, Sabbath days, or vacations.
Let’s make an effort to leave every place we wander to better than we found it.
There is a home away from my home
Where the girl lives
She buries her head in the pillow every night
And dreams of my home
Just like I dream of hers
Her world has no veils
Only joyous hope
Her words are just thoughts
I think to her in my mind
She thinks back to me
We are alive in our myth of each other
This home that is away from my home
Is the other side of the mirror
I wanted to write for #WorldPoetryDay . I didn’t feel any words in me today so I’m posting this poem I wrote in 2014.
