It spurs imagination and helps you to appreciate life and your existence. The result is always a change on how you perceive yourself and your relationship with the environment in which you live in.
Live for the outdoors and change your life, your thinking and your environment. An outdoor lifestyle makes you happier and healthier.
Those who have been to Bali will attest the beauty of this island. From the beaches, the waterfalls, the volcanoes, the rice fields, the art and culture, Bali will surely fascinate you. What impressed me the most about Bali is the rice cultivation. Despite the increase in Tourism and the Population growth, Bali has maintained it's rice cultivation practices. Everywhere you go in the island there's rice. Rice is a staple food in Indonesia and Indonesia is the third largest rice producer in the World behind China and India. Contributing significantly to rice farming in Bali is the Subak system of irrigation. It is a 1000 year old system that has been recognized by UNESCO @unesco as the World Heritage Cultural Landscape of Bali. The system consists of rice terraces and their water temples covering up to 20000 hectares. The temples are the focus of a cooperative water management system of canals and weirs (the Subak). The Subak itself is based on the Tri Hita Karana philosophy which explains the relationship between humans and nature.
"To dare is to lose one's foot momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard
Managed to ascent to the top of Kenya's Fifth highest Mountain. Next, aiming for Mount Kenya. One good thing with tropical mountains is that they are hotspots for biodiversity. Even as you climb, you get to appreciate and study the various plant and animal species.
It is always a great feeling once you get to the mountain top. It is not just about the awesome view but also the feeling of accomplishment and self achievement. You know very well how hard and difficult the climb was but you pushed yourself. The answer to climbing always lies somewhere between the bottom and the top of the mountain. It requires a great deal of courage, determination and self- motivation.
Postponing the hour of living is like a rustic waiting for the river to run out before he crosses. ~ Horace
Bush barbecue, just how we do it out in the wild. Somebody give me some ribs plus nothing goes to waste out here.
In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks. For going out... is really going in. ~ John Muir.
To become mindfully aware of our surroundings is to bring our thinking back to our present moment reality and to the possibility of some semblance of serenity in the face of circumstances outside our ability to control. ~ Jeff Kober
Broaden your horizon and bring in new ideas, solutions, opportunities and growth. It is only by getting out of your comfort zone that you start to see things in a different light.
If it no longer serves your interests or makes you happy be willing to walk away with respect and dignity. The power is in you. Never settle for a raw deal unless you are willing to compromise.
The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream. ~ William Shakespeare
Every great city has a green story. Urban green spaces, parks and gardens should be an important consideration in the planning of every city.
Have you ever seen a Pink Lake? They actually do exist and they are natural. They are caused by the high level of Salt in the Water. With high temperatures and lots of sunlight Algae present in the Lake's Salt crust produces a red pigment called Beta Carotene which causes the pinkish appearance. The Lake returns back to normal in cooler months.
Just because it's almost falling, doesn't mean you should let it go. Instead, you should support it, hold it, grab it or push it back into place. It might still stand a chance of survival.
The secret of what you're looking for might just be in nature. It's up to you to seek it and you will surely find it.
Nothing short of spectacular! To call it picturesque is an understatement. Located South East of Bali is Nusa Penida Island and this here is the secluded Kelingking beach. What an amazing cliff and rock formation? Shaped like a Tyrannosaurus Rex head (T-Rex). How about the white sand and the turquoise waters? Getting down to the beach itself is no mean feat, definitely not for the faint-hearted. The events of this day will sound like a movie (horror, thriller, drama you name it). I'll leave it for another day.
