What’s Funny Honey?

The Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge – Fun

When you travel the fundamental reason is to have fun. People say that they travel to experience the culture, learn new things, gain new experiences, see the world. These are all true but my main reason to travel is to let go and just.. Have.. Fun!

Wherever I have been I have connected with that place and they will all stay in my heart with their own memories. But if your not having fun then they can all be questioned – “what are you doing when your travelling? Are you not having fun?”

In some countries I had more fun messing around and living carefree than others where I was more worried about ticking off the bucket list, getting the best job, going to the best restaurants.

Appreciate. Live. Love. Have Fun.

The Daily Post – One Word Prompt

You think you’ve seen her naked because she took her clothes off?

Tell me about her dreams. Tell me what breaks her heart. What is she passionate about, and what makes her cry. Tell me about her childhood. Better yet, tell me one more story about her that you’re not in.

You’ve seen her skin, and you’ve touched her body. But… you still know as much about her as a book you once found, but never got around to opening.

Maybe you should open it. Maybe if your up to it.13532904_583677135146398_2899296791120546283_n

Fear of Shallow Living

Shark Bay – Koh Tao

Here’s what fulfills my soul..

I hear the sounds of the birds bright and early in the morning, knowing that’s their love song makes my heart melt. The sight of an elderly couple still in their early stages of last acting like teenagers giggling whilst they have their midday tea.

The smell of the sea gives me goosebumps. I always get a sudden urge to jump straight in. I’m sure that I’m a mermaid underneath it all. I can feel it bursting inside me as I have no fear of depth but a great fear of shallow living.

Travel is a necessity, the buzz, the smells, the anxieties make everything painlessly scary. It’s the drug that keeps me addicted and holds no boundaries for me to explore dangerously. My soul is full of desire, desire to always keep on living. Living for the small moments that I will forever cherish. No one will understand however much I longingly want them to but all I can say is; “what is stopping you?”.

Yourself is the answer. We have this fear of change inside our heart and minds which flashes a murderous red with warning flags all around. How will you adapt? That’s what were born for. I get a tingling sensation from the bottom of my feet that sores straight up my spine and gives me ringing in my ears when I think about hoisting my bag and running along into the distance.

Give it a go. The worst that could happen is you return to your daily routine that you say you dislike so much.

Follow me.

Why So Serious?

The Daily Post – One Word Prompt: Joke

Joker: “Question! Would you die for me?”

Harley Quinn: “Yes”

Joker: ” That’s too easy. Would you live for me? Hmm?”

Harley Quinn: “Yes!”

Joker: “Careful. Don’t say this oath thoughtlessly. Desire becomes surrender. Surrender becomes power. You want this?”

Harley Quinn: “I do.”

Joker: “Say it. Say it. Say it. Pretty. Pretty. Pretty. Pretty…”

Harley Quinn: “Please”

Joker: “God, you’re so good!”

I know it’s only a film but I’m in ore of their crazy, twisted love. Maybe it’s the fictional characters, their appearance and their role play. I do not take their love for a joke, more of a admiration. The story behind their love and where it all started is a whirlwind of action and entrapment on both sides.

Harley Quinn who used to treat the  Joker as a patient for mental illness inside the prison falls in love with his sick charm as he plays games with her, asking questions and laughing at her. He takes over the prison by asking her for a machine gun which she gives in to.

After taking over the prison with his disguised killers in Panda suits, batman look a likes and eyeballs he straps her to a table and tells her..

“Oh, I’m not gonna kill you. I’m just gonna hurt you very, very bad.”

To which she replies..

“You think so? Well, I can take it”.

He turns her into his Queen, just as crazy as him by torturing her. He falls head over heels for her and she is the same. I envy the passion he has for her and she’s so crazy for him too, untouchable. The extent of how madly in love they are with each other he would destroy the world to be with her. Tears everyone apart to find her.

No joke, nobody should mess with the Joker’s Queen. A sick love tale with so much lust.

Why So Serious for love Mr J.?

Not Your Average Morning

Mekong River – Laos

Back in February 2015 I was just starting to discover Laos in South East Asia. Myself and a crazy bunch of people left Northern Thailand to discover a place not majorly on the travel radar. It was never my intention to visit this place but when you travel most things aren’t planned which are the best!

We took a slow long tail boat down the Mekong River. Started in a small fishermans village just inside the border. We jumped aboard this massive boat with all different cultures. We had made friends with a Vietnamese family also on a scenic tour. We shared food, laughed and got laughed at. We sailed all day from 6am til sunset and arrived at what you might call a halfway village. The boat may take this route everyday and has somewhat been designed for travellers who visit. Small, quiet and definitely out of our comfort zones we grabbed an Indian and went to sleep.

Alarm bells ringing for the next full day of sailing, we were up at 4am. Booze as a main priority to stow in our polystyrene cool box. Everyone onboard knew who we were at this point. All stocked up it was time for breakfast in the basement of our hotel.

Thinking this place was somewhat strange and I was ready to leave at the first opportunity, I sat down waiting for my eggs. As the sun crept through the fog over the mountains I was amazed at the view before me. So quiet, mystical and still. I was surprised at the beauty of a not so clean river but in it’s  beautiful natural surroundings. To think we were in the middle of nowhere and this was where only a handle of people lived was amazing.

A quick snap and we were away, with our Vietnamese admirers and cool box full to the brim.

Take The Narrow Path.

Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia – June 2015

It was the middle of winter and I had decided to take a scenic tour to the infamous Blue Mountains. Despite the rain and a slight bitter wind it was a magical discovery. A maze of pathways that snaked up and down the mountain edge. Carved out hundreds of years ago for  all the amateur Indiana Jones’ out there. The paths were uneven, crooked and slippery and it gave you a sense of danger even though you were fenced in. The thrill of it all though was the silence, nobody was around while you discovered all the little caves, waterfalls and viewpoints. You saw the odd individual every other hour.. a nice reminder that this wasn’t just a dream.

I found many photographs from this trip that I could have entered in the photo challenge but this one shows the subject, ‘Narrow’.

The thinnest of rails – A comforting thing that wrapped you into the rock but with the vastness of the landscape how easy it could of been for one false move and for noone to ever know it happened.

The steep pathway – It was narrow enough in all sense of the word. Both the width and the length. You got used to it after a while but if you were met by a passerby your heart did occasionally skip a beat. Brushing shoulders looking down at your toes reaching the edge of the step.

The waterfall – The thin stream of white in the background seems so peaceful and picturesque. Everything in the photo following the same vertical line. Once arriving at its bottom the waterfall was no longer quiet yet powerful!

Every photo I took travelling that involved a landscape I have to tried to show its full beauty. Let everyone see what it was that I saw that day.

This is my weekly entry with a lifetime memory.

 

My Cherry On Top; Koh Tao – Thailand

A memory of a place close to my heart is what I will enter into this weekly photo challenge. Being my first participation I hope I have entered correctly.

Koh Tao, Thailand. I lived her for six months last year and it stole my heart. Time went by day by day and I couldn’t get over that I was living there. You could see the island from different viewpoints and I was always discovering new favourite spots.

In the month of April I thought I would upgrade my hostel accomodation with some friends to a villa in the hill. This is my ‘Cherry On The Top’ for The Daily Post. To be able to wake up every morning to a view in which I didn’t have to hike for.

This sunset was one of hundreds I saw every evening and it would never get old.

Forever in my heart Koh Tao.
