“Life is a series of waves to be embraced and overcome.” – Danny Meyer _ I spotted this figure walking along a limestone headland near Broken Head, Victoria, Australia. Even from my distance I could feel the immense power of the pounding waves. _ Near this location I tried out the new @wearepixter clip-on smartphone super fisheye lens. The results were impressive!

Voyagin Review: How To Experience Asia Like A Local

“There’s a natural law of karma that vindictive people, who go out of their way to hurt others, will end up broke and alone.” – Sylvester Stallone _ One of my favourite places on earth… Monument Valley on the border of Arizona and Utah. _ Some days can be a challenge and people around us may let us down. But that’s why it’s so important to treasure memories like these which stir our souls and of course keep close those dear friends which help you become a better person. _ I’m grateful today for the kind people in my life, as I’m neither broke nor alone I must be doing something right. And I remember that those who are jerks will get their just desserts… At least that’s what Rocky says. _ #landscape_lovers #haveabeautifulday

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” – Nelson Mandela _ Arc de Triomphe at the western end of the Champs-Élysées in Paris. It’s one of the most famous landmarks in the city. _ Around this 50 m (164 ft) high landmark are twelve radiating avenues, which attests to its prominence and historical significance. The arc was commissioned after the victory at Austerlitz by Emperor Napoleon at the peak of his fortunes and finished in July 1836. In December 1840, brought back to France from Saint Helena, Napoleon’s remains passed under it on their way to the Emperor’s final resting place at the Invalides. _ Did you know: On 7 August 1919, Charles Godefroy successfully flew his biplane under the Arc. Jean Navarre was the pilot who was tasked to make the flight, but he died on 10 July 1919 when he crashed near Villacoublay while training for the flight. _ During my short visit to Paris I used my @tepwireless hotspot for Internet access. Love it! _ #famousplaces #igersparis

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” – Albert Einstein _ There’s a lot of social media buzz about United Airlines, and all the heat is quite rightly deserved. _ There is something powerful about when humanity stands up for what is right, regardless of unbalanced laws and undeserved intimidation. Those few with “perceived” power should be scared of the masses. You and I are the ones with real power. The power to make good choices everyday. And the power to stand up for what we believe in. _ And I believe in peace. _ Shot in the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives, Jerusalem, Israel. This is the biblical location where Jesus prayed and sweated drops of blood before being betrayed by one of his closest friends. It’s a very significant location to see this particular rock mosaic. _ Did you know: The word “Jerusalem” means “city of peace”. And ironically throughout history Jerusalem has been destroyed and rebuilt 44 times, making it the most rebuilt city anywhere in the world. _ This city reminds me that no matter what challenges face you, we have the choice to live in peace. The peace that can only be found within. _ #peace✌

“When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters.” – Kristin Armstrong _ Yellow algae bloom along the coast of the Kinneret in Israel (also known as the Sea of Galilee). _ On this particular day there was not a breath of wind, and a low still haze settled over the lake creating an eerily otherworldly scene. _ This sea used to be the primary fresh water source for this tiny country but now desalination plants and recycled water provide the bulk of the country’s needs. _ #landscape_lovers #natgeolandscape
