f*****g awesome. trip of a lifetime. loved every minute.
i've had india on my bucket list for 15 years and i've finally ticked it off. india was everything i imagined and so much more.
........................................................................... the good: the aloo gobi and paneer, the always friendly and smiling people, the masala chai, the architecture, the colours of jaipur, the history, the culture, the Taj mahal, the smells, the sun, the monkeys. the bad: the pollution, the rubbish, the poverty. the ugly: the toilets!
...........................................................................but i wouldn't change a thing and i've only scratched the surface so watch this space india...i'll most definitely be back!
Sometimes you have to let go and free yourself in order to begin again...it was as we were meant to cross paths, exchange our experiences, and heal one another with our words and stories, together, temporarily....for a reason I probably will never have the blessing to know. I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things that aren’t meant for me.
More wine please @kdelena17@natbel86 🙏🏻❤️ #sunset#LA#nofilter
DO YOU KNOW
11 DECEMBER is celebrated as INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN DAY
Almost one billion people live in mountain areas, and over half the human population depends on mountains for water, food and clean energy. Yet mountains are under threat from climate change, land degradation, over exploitation and natural disasters, with potentially far-reaching and devastating consequences, both for mountain communities and the rest of the world.
Mountains are early indicators of climate change and as global climate continues to warm, mountain people — some of the world’s hungriest and poorest — face even greater struggles to survive. The rising temperatures also mean that mountain glaciers are melting at unprecedented rates, affecting freshwater supplies downstream for millions of people. Mountain communities, however, have a wealth of knowledge and strategies accumulated over generations, on how to adapt to climate variability.
Climate change, climate variability and climate-induced disasters, combined with political, economic and social marginalization, increase the vulnerability of mountain peoples to food shortages and extreme poverty. Currently, about 39 percent of the mountain population in developing countries, or 329 million people, is estimated to be vulnerable to food insecurity.
As the vulnerability of mountain populations grows, migration increases both abroad and to urban centres. Those who remain are often women, left to manage the farms but with little access to credit, training and land tenure rights. Out-migration from mountain areas will also result in an inestimable loss in terms of provision of ecosystem services and preservation of cultural and agrobiodiversity. Investments and policies can alleviate the harsh living conditions of mountain communities and reverse out-migration trends from mountain areas.
Sometime you just want to hid from reality and what better way then lakeside under a tree?!
Everyone likes to escape from reality, some people read, or watch movies, or play games. For me it’s finding the most beautiful place and being able to capture it.
What’s your escape?
Despite spending nearly 8 years in Australia, I still struggle with the idea of a December where the weather forecast reads "hot with abundant sunshine" (sounds like a treat of a day though, don't get me wrong)! 😅😎
I’m very pleased that it’s snowing again and again this winter. The last two winters were very snowless in Switzerland. Let’s hope that we’ll get masses of snow this season 💙 #SwitzerlandWinterWonderland
Remembering good times and warm vibes in Iceland back in March. Unfortunately I've heard this hot spring is no longer accessible, but I'm glad to have had a chance to take a dip in it when we had the chance. Luckily, there's plenty more around the country to keep you warm in the winter if you can manage to find them ☺️

Isn’t there something pleasantly chaotic about this time of year? The mad rush as we frantically look to make sure all is in order. I don’t know about you but we have always preferred to watch from a bit of a distance, eagerly anticipating the first snow. Rudy was born a snow dog on December 25th so when those first few flakes start to fall, that’s when he roars, charging nose first into the heart of it all. With all the excitement that surrounds this holiday season, it’s what I look forward to most. What about you, is there something you wait all year for??? ❄️😊🐶
