  • Boy on Stranded Boat, Banda Aceh, Sumatra, 2016
The boat isn’t actually stranded, it sits on a house three miles from the ocean. Banda Aceh Region is the northern end of Sumatra and is governed by fundamentalists ruling by sharia law. The region was hit hardest by the 2004 tsunami, destroying almost every house not made of stone (so almost all of them) in Banda Aceh city. Today you don’t see much of the damage, except for some boats hanging on local houses or one huge boat that used to be a floating power plant, sitting some MILES away from water. Banda Aceh is one of the wealthiest regions in Sumatra, with a growing middle class and lot of young people sitting in cafes or strolling the streets. That really contradicted our prejudice against the “sharia region”. Although we as tourists didn’t get to really see  and can only imagine the challenges and pressure the people have to face under a fundamentalist law, we were really surprised by the modern flare of this part of the island. And as everywhere on Sumatra, the hospitality and kindness of the people just blew my mind!

  • Traveling is the best teacher! It opens your mind to other cultures, other traditions, other languages, other foods, other architecture, ..... you know what I mean. 😀😍
We try to travel as much as we can, especially with our son.

  • DO YOU NEED TO WIDEN YOUR HORIZON?
...
Sometimes it's hard to see things through a wider angle. Changing your environment can help in doing so.
...
You don't have to go far for that. Changing a small habit, taking another way home, riding a bike, if you always drive a car, finally reading that book that a friend of yours has recommended you for a long time, talking to a stranger on a train, if you usually prefer to be left alone, speaking up for once, if you're shy, all that can help changing perspective and widen your horizon.
...
I know pretty basic but what does it cost?

  • The draw of the thrift shop here was too much to resist, and she’s closing, this lovely thing was hiding behind pottery, there is no reason I needed this, but I buy this shape over and over.  It’s super dirty, but aesthetically so pleasing, so just gonna stick it in my back pack.  So many other things there would work in my home, but won’t work in my suitcase😂. Also, the language barrier between us was huge, but we had such a nice conversation anyways, couple of other customers were shopping for vintage scarfs, same thing applied to them, it’s so good to be reminded that what unites us is stronger than what divides us.

  • Viaggiate
che sennò poi
diventate razzisti
e finite per credere
che la vostra pelle è l’unica 
ad avere ragione,
che la vostra lingua
è la più romantica
e che siete stati i primi
ad essere i primi

Viaggiate 
che se non viaggiate poi
non vi si fortificano i pensieri 
non vi riempite di idee
vi nascono sogni con le gambe fragili
e poi finite per credere alle televisioni
e a quelli che inventano nemici
che calzano a pennello con i vostri incubi
per farvi vivere di terrore
senza più saluti
né grazie
né prego
né si figuri

Viaggiate
che viaggiare insegna
a dare il buongiorno a tutti
a prescindere
da quale sole proveniamo,
che viaggiare insegna
a dare la buonanotte a tutti
a prescindere
dalle tenebre che ci portiamo dentro

Viaggiate
che viaggiare insegna a resistere
a non dipendere
ad accettare gli altri non solo per quello che sono
ma anche per quello che non potranno mai essere,
a conoscere di cosa siamo capaci
a sentirsi parte di una famiglia
oltre frontiere, oltre confini,
oltre tradizioni e cultura,
viaggiare insegna a essere oltre

Viaggiate 
che sennò poi finite per credere
che siete fatti solo per un panorama
e invece dentro voi
esistono paesaggi meravigliosi
ancora da visitare.

«No place like home» by Trey Watkins, Mara Greenberg, Alan Becker, Karen Cusolito, Andrew Howell, Meena Sandhu and Frogma. .
Did unfortunately not see the fire tornadoes, but this piece was still amazing.

  • «Wings of Glory» by @adrian_landon 🔥❣️This was probably my favourite art piece this year. The mechanical pegasus, on fire, powered by the collaboration and interaction of 8 random people. Congratulations Adrian! The thing was a damn spectacle! Thank you for bringing this beauty to the dust 💜

  • What I’ve learned so far about Rome is that it’s a rough city. A very hard one on its people and visitors a like. I was a subject to a scam in less than 60 minutes after my arrival. Although this is not my first time in Rome and I did my research and thought that I know the few tricks that people may pull on tourists here 🤦🏻‍♀️
.
Anyway I’m only here for few days and there’s a lot of history and beauty to explore. So I’m gonna focus on the positive and fun aspect of #roma🇮🇹 because that’s what I do 😉

  • 🌍 Islandia 🇮🇸 jest pełna wodospadów. 
Gullfoss spada z wysokości 32 metrów. To tak naprawdę dwa wodospady. 
Jest to chyba najczęściej odwiedzany wodospad Islandii. 
Zimą możliwe jest podziwianie Gullfoss jedynie z platform widokowych, latem z kolei otwarta jest ścieżka prowadząca na skalny taras tuż przy wodospadzie. 
Moc usłyszycie na filmiku.

  • Feeling lost in your twenties? 😫⁣
⁣
Society likes to put pressure on us to ‘figure out’ our lives in our twenties but in reality most people in their 50s still haven’t worked out what they want from life! It’s ok to not have it all figured out yet, but in order to not be that lost 50 year old... ⁣

✨Now is the time to take risks ⁣
✨Now is the time to widen your experiences ⁣
✨Now is the time to focus on yourself⁣
✨Now is the time to find what it is you enjoy

  • Love and BeLoved 💕 there is so much sadness, hate, judgment, and violence in this world 😭 So where is the love??? Let’s take a minute of quietness and fill yourself with love and thoughts of love and send it out into this world 🌎 the minority of us has the privilege to read, to eat food in a restaurant and we can send it back or complain about it if we don’t like it and it gets thrown away, to live in a place that has a roof and running water, to not fear for our lives every minute. I am privileged and grateful to have won the lottery of this life. There wasn’t a questionnaire filled out in heaven that had an option “I want to be born in a first world country with this specific belief system!” No there wasn’t! So how do we get to judge the refuges who are finding shelter in Europe. How do we get to decide who’s religion is better or the “right one” who are we to point fingers and think we are better than others. Who are we to think it is ok to send immigrants back to places where they get slaughtered. I haven’t gone on a religious journey and intensely lived or practiced Hinduism, Buddhismus, Christianity, Koran, Judaism, Jehovas witness, and everything else out there so how can I say that I am right. I can’t because like most of us we were born into a country, a culture, a religion, a moral standard and we were thought by these surroundings and we believe that we have the answers but we are just brainwashed into the culture! We literally  could have been born anywhere on earth. So let’s not be ignorant and stuck in our ways but let’s learn and educate and widen our horizon and question everything. Knowledge is the gift no one can take from you. Wisdom and change stems from changing yourself and being open to learning because we will never reach the point where we know it all. So love each other and have compassion because I and so many others we are the lucky ones and we have the ability to bring change! I love you world 🌎

  • Pertemuan dengan Dubes RI untuk Rep Yunani Bpk. F Adamhar beserta Ibu di Wisma Duta , Athena. Sekaligus diskusi dengan masyarakat Indonesia di Athena. Banyak hal yang bisa dipelajari dari Rep Yunani. Terutama mengenai Toll Laut. Mengingat Yunani mrmiliki ratusan pulau yang sukses diolah menjadi objek pariwisata. Populasi Rep Yunani hanya 11 juta namun jmlh turis hingga musim summer ( yg belum habis) sdh mencapai 28 juta. Disisi lain jmlh immigran yang masuk ke Yunani hingga saat ini sdh 2 juta.  Bagi parlemen Yunani mengutamakan negara yg aman dan tidak bermusuhan dng negara manapun serta menghormati setiap keyakinan tanpa fanatiksme adalah kunci keberhsln pariwisatanya. 🇮🇩🇬🇷 #widenyourworld #widenyourhorizon #widenyourheart #selaluadapelajarandisetiapperjalanan #grateful🌿
