Cenotes são poços de água formados por rios subterrâneos e revelados há milhares de anos pelo colapso de camadas de rochas calcárias. Algumas dessas piscinas naturais de água cristalina são parcialmente escondidas por cavernas, enquanto outras são abertas e parecidas com lagoas. Esses poços possuem um clima místico e são cercados de história, já que eram considerados espaços sagrados pelos maias. Hoje, muitos cenotes são abertos à visitação e permitem um mergulho em suas águas puras e cristalinas. Entre as atividades possíveis, estão nado com snorkel, mergulho em cavernas, rapel, caiaque e muito mais. Para alguns estilos de mergulho é necessário certificado de treinamento.

W A R R I O R ✌🏾 . . Warrior II is one of my favorite poses. It’s a strengthening pose that improves physical and mental endurance. It’s an essential foundation pose for most practices. I was first introduced to yoga during my combine training. I consider myself a rookie on the mat but I am still excited to grow & learn. What’s your favorite pose?
Day 7: Our last day in Tbilisi 💔 We decided to go to the other end of town for slightly different taste of Georgia. . . About a half hour drive from Rustaveli/Old Town is the Chronicle of Georgia. Sitting atop a hill, this structure - oft referred to as 'the Stonehenge of Tbilisi' - is a collection of gigantic sculptures that depict scenes from the History of Georgia and from Christianity. Brainchild of Georgian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, who received his training during the Soviet era (influences of which reflect very strongly in this structure!), construction began in 1985 but never finished. The partially incomplete structure is awe-inspiring nonetheless. . . From here, you can get fabulous panoramic views of a very different part of Tbilisi. One the right, at the back, lies the idyllic Tbilisi reservoir ... the waters competing in their blueness with the skies, framed by lush greenery all around. . . Move you gave a little to the left, and the landscape changes drastically. You are now overlooking Tbilisi's suburbs. Hundreds of solemn soviet era apartment blocks create a pattern that is both mesmerizing and somber. . . Of course a fabulous last meal was in order after this. We headed to Georgian House. Both of us were craving another round of Mtsvadi (meat bbqed Georgian style) and the internet said this is where we should go. Oh boy, was it good! Not just the Mtsvadi, but our entire meal of pkhali, nadughi, bbqed vegetables, shrimp cooked in white wine, and garlic bread. Yum! . . Our last activity was to finally give the metro a try. The metro station transported us to a different era. Yep, you guessed it: the soviet era! When in Tbilisi, do ride the metro for a trip back in time! . . . . . . . . . #ujalaland#ujalaintbilisi#ujalaingeorgia#worldwithoutborders#wanderlust#hownottotravellikeabasicbitch#travelposting#traveldiary#pakistaniwriters#travelwriter#traveljunkie#beautifulplaces#thetravelwomen#wearetravelgirls#backpackwithme
While I learned the official name of this Missouri bridge from @elizabetholwigphoto yesterday, I’ve apparently been a fan of the Gasconade River Bridge for quite some time. Unfortunately, this patina-covered structural timepiece sitting abandoned in the Missouri countryside is in need of some serious repair. Even in its current state, this Route 66 landmark remains one of my top places to stop whenever I’m in the “Show Me” state. Let’s hope that this historic bridge dating back to the early 1920s can somehow be restored for the next generation. 🇺🇸 • Hope you like the photo. Be blessed! 🤙🏾
