“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” – Brian Tracy _ The Gibson Steps near the Twelve Apostles, Victoria, Australia. _ The steps were carved into the cliff by local settler Hugh Gibson who worked on traditional access used by the original Kirrae Whurrong aboriginal inhabitants. _ To access the steps, you park at the Twelve Apostles Visitors Centre and walk along the Great Ocean Walk trail for 1.1 kms (60-80 mins round-trip). The spectacular view is worth the effort. _ #australiagram

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.” – Thich Nhat Hanh _ The stunning Byodo-In Temple in Oahu, Hawaii. _ The temple is a half-size-scale replica of a 900-year-old Buddhist temple at Uji in Kyoto prefecture of Japan. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a functioning Buddhist temple in the proper sense as it does not host a resident monastic community nor an active congregation. _ Inside the Byodo-In Temple is a 18 ft (5.5 m) statue of the Lotus Buddha, covered in gold and lacquer. _ This famous landmark has appear on TV shows such as Magnum P.I., Hawaii Five-O, seaQuest DSV, and (my favorite) Lost.

The most sacred ground in Australia is not a church, shrine or mosque. _ It is the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG or just “the G” to locals). _ Today is the Aussie Rules football grand final in Melbourne, Australia. Every year on the last Saturday in September. It’s even a public holiday. The entire country stops for this game. So if you try calling an Australian friend and they don’t answer… Don’t take it personally. 😉 _ This shot is not from a drone… I was hanging out the side of a hot air balloon with @globalballooningaustralia. _ #mcg #footy
