Mecca and Medina - a journey towards spiritual enlightenment (Umrah 2016): Performing Umrah in the month of Ramadan is equivalent to performing Hajj. Upon seeing the Ka’abah, I could not help but cry. I felt at home. I visited Jannat Al-Baqi, the graveyard of the Sahabah. It was truly incredible to know that some of the greatest men and women that have ever lived were resting a few hundred meters away from me. Completing my Umrah I felt my Heart and Mind are at peace with Ibaadaah of Allah, without any worries of dunya. I feel that you will forget all your worries and sadness, when you are in Ka’abah and Masjid-an-Nabawi. These are the best places in dunya, and of course Jannah in the hereafter. Alhamdulillah, Allah gave me the opportunity to do His ‘Ibadath in Ka’abah and Masjid-an-Nabawi. May Allah forgive all our sins and make us people of Jannah, Ameen #mecca #medina #holysites #umrah2016 #saudiarabia #somalia

Apart from leisure offers, they organise events and conferences as well. They are very proud of the fact that they are only organiser of the International Congress of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimages (ICORTAP) - a unique event in this part of Europe.
⛪️
The congress aims to promote Krakow and Poland worldwide not only as a cultural spot, but also as a place to organise pilgrimages (because of the Pope John Paul 2, Saint Faustyna Kowalska and the Black Madonna among others). The congress takes place annually right after WTM in London.
🇵🇱

And suddenly it’s winter time, and there’s World Cup skiing on TV. With the opening race being cancelled today (can you believe it – due to snow!), there was time to dwell on memories and look forward to the races ahead. What you see here may look like a normal meadow – and in summertime, it actually is – but to me, underpassing that chairlift felt like visiting a holy shrine. «La Cargentina», as the locals call it, is where would-be winners of the «Stelvio» – my favourite ski race course in the world, situated in Bormio, Italy – can prove what legs, guts and instincts they have. One mistake here and you might just as well walk down. Which I did, and even that was a thrill.

Sunrise on The Ganges River in Varanasi. This is considered the oldest living city in the world. A place of pilgrimage for Hindus. It’s like no other place I’ve ever seen in India or the world. Far far out! 💫🌎💫 #varanasi #cremation #gangesriver #holysites #spiritualawakening #yoga #meditation #transformation

Today I had to opportunity to visit Pashupatinath Temple,the most Holy site in Nepal and witnessed the beginning, middle and end of a Hindu cremation ceremony (you can see the smoke in the first picture from it). I also visited Boudhanath Stupa where they were repainting the walls and putting up new prayer flags. My last stop for the day was Durbar Square, a UNESCO world heritage site severely damaged by the 2015 earthquake but is in the process of being rebuilt. Creation, upkeep and destruction. The Gods were with me today.

Time for a short #smokebreak from working on my marketing materials for the holistic fair this weekend while computer updates.
While there we will be releasing some details about our upcoming #expedition to #peru to talk with the Elders about fixing pollution and visiting the #gateofthegods and other #holysites

Love locks are not "European culture", or "local culture", no matter what anyone tells you. This is a monument to St. John Nepomuk, marking where he was thrown off the bridge and killed. Probably not the most respectful place to lock your love. Now for the shameless plug, read my latest book to find out more about this martyred saint, follow the link in my profile. ⠀

The Cathedral-Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, one of the defining architectural spots in Zaragoza. It’s said to be the first church in history dedicated to Mary. My being able to get this shot in the first place is courtesy of @eatwinelover, who knows all the best spots in town.

In another country a while back where vendors line up buckets to fill with lily buds, offerings bloom before your eyes, one deft slight of hand and released from tight confines a bloom is released opening to reveal uncounted petals and details and the melody of fragrance. The woman with her toothless grin, one son slung in a wrap at her breast and small ones at her skirts. And All this beauty, amidst dirty toes and scratched plastic buckets, and rusted floral knives and exchanges between hands. In the clatter of such markets I imagine floating on reflective surfaces of pre-dawn, pink skies spilling pigment onto the mirrors between clusters of lily pads, dragonflies resting on tall blades of grasses gently humming their wings, and fish lazily patrolling muddy domains below, and think of better offerings, my toes gripping the slick gunnels, drifting along channels of movement, slicing a wake into the calm, the chanting of frogs echoing the wet felted silence, to visit royalty perched atop a slender stem, majesty in delicacy and detail, a testament to non believers that god is, in deed, present. #flowertravels #temple #meditations #boat #offerings #tbt #nature #srilanka #holysites #bloom #miracles #morning #picturesofpeace #buddhism #spiritsofnature #water #lilly #waterlily #dragonflies #rejuvenation #bloom #wisdom #unityindiversity #harvest

There was a spot to actually climb to the dome of the basilica and see the entire city. This guy and I may get on each other's nerves and we have a lot of differences, but there's no one else I can imagine taking such an adventure with

The Archaeology Museum had some really cool stuff inside. There were tons of statues and some pieces of mosque stained glass and very very old coins. Turns out we've gotten good at making money although maybe only in the minting sense
