The beautiful island of Korcula! Locals claim it was the birthplace of Marco Polo — all I know is that it was one of my favorite stops, with an idyllic old town fringed by crystal blue waters, and some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had in my life #priorities
"A realidade humana não tem desculpas. Somos responsáveis pelo mundo, porque o elegemos. O homem é o único legislador de sua vida, e a única lei de sua vida diz apenas: 'escolhe-te a si mesmo'. Ou então, 'fazer, e ao fazer, fazer-se'. A cada momento o homem deve escolher o seu ser, lançando-se continuamente a seus possíveis e constituindo pouco a pouco a sua essência, através dessas escolhas, contando, para agir, somente com a voz de sua consciência." Jean-Paul #sartre
Mahipar Pass #Afghanistan paved for the first time by the West #German government in 1960. The 40-mile stretch, a breathtaking chasm of mountains and cliffs between Kabul and Jalalabad, claims so many lives so regularly that most people stopped counting long ago. Cars flip and flatten. Trucks soar to the valley floor. Buses play chicken; buses collide. The mayhem unfolds on one of the most bewitching stretches of scenery on all the earth. The gorge, in some places no more than a few hundred yards wide, is framed by vertical rock cliffs that soar more than 2,000 feet above the Kabul River below.

Ever wish there were a phrase for when you feel embarrassed about what someone else says or does (think: a standup comedian bombing or everything Michael Scott has ever done). Or a verb for "to Sunday"? Or a NAME TWIN??? I’ve often said that Spanglish is my favorite language because there are just some Spanish words that capture what I want to say so much better.
So...because I'm a total language nerd I made a list of a bunch of my favorite non-translatable Spanish words (and yup, all of the above made the list!). From the funny to the perfectly succinct, I seriously wish we had all these in English (my personal faves are 1 and 15!). Since we don't, for now I'll just be over here speaking Spanglish to my husband and my dog (I mean, her name is Spanish, so she understands me, right?). Head to the link in my bio to check out all 25 words and phrases! Which one is your favorite? Got any others you'd add to the list?
Good thing about the hills in Quebec City, you can walk off all the poutine

Today, @whiskandwander is sharing why she loves her home state...
“What we love most about California is the diversity of landscapes and unique places we can explore as a family. We have everything from beautiful beaches, to mountains, deserts, Joshua trees, sierras, redwoods, lakes, and lots of fun cities.”
For those of you who have explored California with kids, what did you and your family enjoy most about your time there? Let us know in the comments! #gowithnugget : @whiskandwander
As we were visiting Hadrian's Villa outside Rome, we got to see this rare phenomenon–a so-called "sun dog," or halo. These appear when there are reflections off ice crystals in the air. One wonders about the weather when the surface temperature was about 30C. #rome#astronomy#halo#weather#TBIN#everythingeverywhere#eurail
Credit: @everythingeverywhere The last few days of traveling through the Swiss Alps has been spectacular! These are some of the most picturesque mountains in the world and as well as some of the most accessible. This was taken on the Bernina Express train which goes from Filisur, Switzerland to Tirana, Italy.
Today I visited the historic Abbey of St. John in the village of Müstair, with its Carolingian and Romanesque artwork. It is also one of the few places in Switzerland which speaks Romansh, one of the four official languages in Switzerland along with German, French, and Italian.
Speaking of Italian, I’m currently on a bus to the town of Bellinzona, an Italian speaking part of the country, to visit two world heritage sites over the next few days.
Still trying to fulfill that lifelong dream of being a mermaid 🧜🏻♀️
@scotth2os mentioned when submitting his raw footage of rural Nevada "I don't know who will buy this - maybe the Nevada tourism board? Within 8 days of being online this creative clip was purchased by National Geographic and we predict it will sell many times over. Capturing unique angles of common scenes can achieve incredible results. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sneak peak from REAL TALK TUESDAYS blog post!
What is existence? What is living? What if I don’t want to buy a flat or house yet? What if I don't want to start my career yet? What if I just want to experience my life in various ways? What if it is not so much about "career", "hobbies", "social life", etc. and more about just living my damn life?
I AM HAPPY THIS WAY.
What if some of those ways are unusual for now? What if all of them are for ever? Who cares? Everyone has their own life. When there is a show someone doesn't like, they don't watch it. So do the same with my choices if you don't like them.
That's what I always say.♀️
I will live and let live because we are all worthy of such respect. If someone does not give you that respect, that's ok. Give them theirs anyway, and then keep giving it to yourself.♀️
I hope that those of you who need a reminder have been reminded.
I hope that those of you who need inspiration have been inspired.
I hope that those of you who need support have been supported.
I hope that those of you who need this have received this.
Love + Kindness = Harmony
Grace + Mindfulness = Serenity
Strength + Compassion = Forgiveness
Harmony + Serenity + Forgiveness = Balance, Centre, and Ground.
All this brings peace.🧘🏻♀️ Check out full piece! #everythingeverywhere

They say you’re not supposed to swim right after eating, but the temptation sure is strong when this is your view for lunch!
California here we come! This week, we'll be visiting some of @whiskandwander's favorite spots to explore with her little one across the Golden State. They loved checking out this fun sand art by @zalansz at a beach in Encinitas. ⠀

Entre mis cosas favoritas de este mundo esta el mar en invierno... Ese viento poderoso y frio que se siente en las mejillas. Ese zumbido ensordecedor que solo se rompe con el sonido de las olas. Ese vacio de playa y un cielo monocromatico hacen del mar mi lugar favorito. Este mar particularmente ventoso, ruidoso, frio y con piedras extrañas te espera en el blog! Visita nuestro post sobre la CALZADA DEL GIGANTE.
