Encore une grosse journée passée à avancer sur le site internet ! C'est cool, ça commence à prendre vraiment forme. 🤩 : . Une chose vraiment difficile est de choisir l'esprit global du site et de le mettre en page, de façon cohérente et en continuité tout le long des différentes pages du site.🤓 : . Surtout quand ce n'est pas ton métier ! Heureusement la plateforme est super facile à prendre en main et très intuitive ! 👌🏻 : . Demain on repars sur le chantier pour terminer le second mur en briques crème. Il fera beau et chaud et des copains viendront sûrement nous aider, presque le week-end du coup ! 😻 : . Ce soir une petite image de Thaïlande, avec une atmosphère un peu voilée et les jolis bateaux thaï ✨ : . Belle soirée à tous 💗 : . Another big day spent moving forward on the website! It's cool, it's really starting to take shape.😃 : . One really difficult thing is to choose the overall spirit of the site and to layout it, in a consistent and continuous way throughout the different pages of the site. 🧐 : . Especially when it's not your job! Fortunately the platform is super easy to use and very intuitive!👍🏻 : . Tomorrow we will go back to the building site to finish the second cream color brick wall. It will be sunny and hot and friends will probably come to help us, almost on weekends! 😻 : . Tonight an image of Thailand, with a slightly veiled atmosphere and pretty Thai boats. We went for a full day of diving in different spots around the island of Koh Tao ✨ : . Nice evening guys 💕 : . #divingkohtao#kohtao#thailandtravels#naturephotography#frenchroamers#freshairclub#bigcatsdontcry#nikonfrance#palepalmcollection#oceanlover
Here is the highlight of my day. Today I struggled with should I, shouldn’t I ride. I have been feeling quite low in energy over the past week. I decided to take a break at the top of Sainte Colome and here is the real #cyclesurgery story😂Tom called me on FB messenger while I was just about to quit my ride and head home. You see he is in Glasgow this week performing surgery and had just finished for the day. That lifted my spirits 😁 After the call I headed on to continue my ride. Not too far into my ride I came across a flock of sheep heading down the road completely on their own. No sheep dogs, no shepherds, absolutely no one looking after them. 😯🤔The lost flock over 🐣perhaps. They had escaped from their secure grazing field as someone had left their gate open by error. Is there a lesson in here somewhere? 🤔Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful Easter holiday. Take care and ride ✌🏻
March 2019. 🇨🇵Un quartier coloré qui évoque les premiers vagues d'immigration européenne à Buenos aires. On a eu la chance d'assister à un match dans la Célèbre Bombonera pour soutenir les Bocas Junior. Quelle ambiance ! . . . 🇦🇺La Boca, a colourful neighbourhood where the first European immigrants settled down. We've been lucky to attend a soccer game in the famous Bombonera to attend Boca junior. Great atmosphere !
Après plus de trois heures de route en provenance de Qazvin, les premières signalisations apparaissent : Alamut Castle, 8 km. On continue de monter. On admire la vue. Les installations semblent tout de même douteuses, avec des barrières et des échafaudages de part et d'autre pour tenir les ruines. L'aventure, on adore. Comme certains le savent, j'ai effectué des recherches sur l'influence des autorités religieuses sur le patrimoine culturel d'Iran. Cette forteresse faisait partie de mes cas d'études. La forteresse d'Alamut a occupé un rôle essentiel dans la défense de la Perse. Avec une position stratégique, Alamut a permis de défendre l'Empire contre les invasions ennemies pendant des siècles. Au final, ce site, malgré le faible revenu alloué par l'État pour leur rénovation, bénéficie encore d'une certaine visibilité. Car si ce patrimoine n'est pas islamique, il reflète le passé glorieux de la Perse. Et ça, même les autorités religieuses en sont fières.
After our month-long deep freeze back in February, I was amped up, ready to lace up my shoes & get out there on the paths. But then life happened - N went up to site for two weeks at a time & it felt like enough just to get out for a walk with Odes & Anni & keep us fed, clothed, & reasonably clean. Here's the thing though, I feel way better when I move more often. I have more energy, I eat better, my head is clearer. So when @goldieyoga posted her #3for3withgg challenge, it was just what I needed in this moment. For the next 3 weeks, I'll be getting out there at least 3 times a week. They say it takes 21 days to make something a habit. I'm hoping I find that to be true. I won't be thinking about speed or distance - this is just some time for me. I'll be posting here to keep myself somewhat accountable, but you're of course welcome to join me. Tag me, tell.me about your run, share your successes (& your fails, they're important too!) The more the merrier, I say. I love a good challenge! See you out there on the paths, friends. 💕
Where was the last place that made you feel like you were in a fairytale?⠀ ⠀ I read a lot (a TON) of books as a kid, and I always had a vivid imagination. Combine that with my German roots, and you have a recipe for seeing the fairytale in many of the landscapes I visit. ⠀ ⠀ Many German folk tales take place in a dark forest, as they represent the unknown, opportunity, danger, refuge, or adventure. The coastal Redwoods are a far cry from the thick beech and pine forests of Germany, but the thick fog that often comes in the mornings gave it a very similar feel to me.⠀ ⠀ I wandered the paths alone, the fog and the wet ground dampening the sound of my footsteps. The trees were silver giants, glowing against the green ferns, looking like they could come alive at any second.⠀ ⠀ The experience felt so out of this world, like I had been transported to a land outside of time. Whenever I look at my photographs now, those feelings are triggered again, and my mind starts to think up stories. ⠀ ⠀ The world we live in is such a wonder, and I can't wait for more fairytale adventures like this.⠀⠀
This is the largest tree in the world, a giant Sequoia named General Sherman (too bad all the trees in this park are named after only the patriarchy). . It is grounding to stand beneath something so old, so silent, so peaceful. To know it has survived as much, 2,500 years worth of life. Ours is just a tiny slice in comparison.
