Today I went to Vienna and from there to Stift Göttweig, a monastery in the mountains. We had a 12 km walk by foot, one way. The monastery was incredibly beautiful! Here are some pictures to give you an idea.
After my excellent Qatar flight from Doha to Brussels I went to the buffet and had a croissant and a water for breakfast. The BA Lounges in Europe are in my opinion always nice. They offer a decent food and drink selection and have always working space and Imacs if you don't have your own PC.
Last November, I traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for the Supercomputing conference. The best part of attending conferences like this (I mean, aside from expenses being paid, which is awesome) is the few days where you have to yourself, to explore around the area!
Salt Lake City has an interesting history, as it was basically founded by Mormons looking for a place to settle. It has since evolved into more focus on outdoor recreation, as the mountains are apparently a great place to ski (they actually hosted the 2002 winter Olympics!). Since I come from Vancouver, I have... opinions on what makes a place good for skiing. So, some day I need to come back and check out how it stacks up.
Anyway, I was fortunate to have a friend from my university also attend, and we decided to rent a car one day to explore a bit. For part one, I am going to show off where we went: first into the mountains, and then to visit the place the city is named after -- the Great Salt Lake. So, withou
Önceki yazımda Eski Foça’ya nasıl gidileceğini, ilk gün gördüğüm yerleri ve izlenimlerimi paylaşmıştım.Vol1 de anlattığım günü birlik bir gezi için yapılabilecek şeylerdi. Bu yazımda Eski Foça’da gittiğim ve gidemediğim tarihi alanları anlatmaya devam edeceğim. Aralarda Foça tarihi ve sembolleri hakkında öğrendiklerimi anlatmaya çalışacağım.
Tarihi mekanlardan ilki, sahil şeridinde gözünüzden kaçmayacak olan, Beşkapılar Kalesi. Fotoğrafta görebilirsiniz, çevresinde bir yürüyüş yolu var ve surlar korunmaya çalışılmış. Bu kale Osmanlı döneminde kayıkhane olarak kullanılırmış. Fakat tarihi çok daha eski olan bu kalenin surlarına baktığınızda 3 farklı katmandan oluştuğunu görürsünüz. Bunlar Bizanslıların 11. Yüzyılda inşa ettiği ilk kalenin kalıntıları üzerine farklı yüzyıllarda yapılan tamirlerin izidir. Cenevizliler kaleyi
Once I wrote about this unusual terrain. There is a memorable path
Mitkin's road, and a lot of suspension bridges, and the picturesque small river Strelna, and many abandoned villages.
Lower Anisimovo is seen from a high hill.
Falling here in the autumn, you become soaked with sadness, despondency - it directly presses.
But it attracts pendant bridges at the same time. I do not know why I love them so much ...
Probably there is something in them from the world of fantasy or fairy tales.
The houses look as if somebody else lives in them.
To another village Pozharische you must first go through the forest.
While the spring and many puddles I have time to catch the reflections! When else can you make such interesting geometric photos? Only in the spring!
Yes, and I want to try out my new camera (Canon 6d).
A puddle in our city is more than enough!
This, by the way, is the yard in which I live. And this gray panel house is my home.
Do not pass and do not drive!
The Church of Leontiy Rostov and the Psychoneurological Dispensary.
Belfry of the Assumption Cathedral.
I'm back !! I've had an amazing weekend chaperoning youth for the QUAKE. This awesome event was staged by Life! Promotions and held at Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI.
Life! Promotions is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing a message of hope, love and value with more than 250,000 youth across the nation each year. By focusing on rescuing youth from drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, violence and suicide we seek to transform their self images and encourage them to live their lives to the fullest.
So yes, I had an great weekend, rocking out to the amazing band Bread of Stone, floating down the lazy river, enduring the pounding waves at the wave pool, screaming my way down the water slides and being challenged at the workshops.
I have some pictures for you to get a feel of the quality weekend I enjoyed.
Located on 600 acres, Wilderness Resort is America’s largest water park resort! Home to 4 indoor & 4 ou
Got Shanghaied to Shanghai to film Drifting China Style
I'm afraid no one was kungfu fighting everyone just doesn't talk and runs into each other.
It was a pretty big culture shock being basically alone in China some days to capture B Roll around the city, most of the time we were in what could be equated to the Irvine or Bakersfield of China outside of Shanghai where not a single person spoke english and even worse spoke different dialects of Chinese to each-other so communication was an all out shit show
One day I met a guy on a motorcycle that I paid to drive me around to find cool buildings

Busan is a very exciting city for tourists, you can see a variety of landscapes from the ocean to the mountains, enjoy delicious food, and discover the wonderful difference between day and night, while in the day the city has a simple and attractive atmosphere, Night - Tomo and Kayla
The tower rises to a height of 69 meters and is one of the city's most prominent landmarks, rising to about 120 meters. The top of the building has a viewing platform that offers great views of the city and the sea beyond it and is located within the Park. Is a vital place for those looking to see one of the busiest ports in the world
As my spoilt mind is getting used to, my ride from Jujuy to Purmamarca was immediate. I courteously passed the line of many hitchhikers to avoid bad karma, to nevertheless see the very first car arriving driving passed everyone to halt at the end of the row to offer me a ride. Argentina is very ‘machista’ in an often rather elegant way and I’m one of the females that’s profiting from that. Jorge, a middle-aged musician from Tilcara who – I would learn soon enough – would fill my phone memory with love poetry, was so pleased with my company he even dropped me off right at Purmamarca’s main square, entirely out of the way of his foreseen destination...
The location where I would spend time in the shades writing out my own line of thoughts while
Yesterday night, my family went up the Eungbong hill which is famous for its night view. It was my wife's suggestion.
She knows very well on nice spot.
Eungbong hill was located on along northern side of Han river.
Here Han means great or big.
People loves word
It seems that it is a common thing in the world.
I 've seen so many bigs and greats in many countries.
Going up the hill, I took a photo. The scenary which was seen upward from just beneath it was spectacular.
At the summit, there was two stories traditional octagonal.
Around the octagonal, I could enjoy handsome pine trees.
The best thing you can enjoy there is night view.
You can see the beauty of night in Seoul.
Cars and River. Really awesome.
Spring awakens nature. The kidneys have not yet opened, but you feel their pleasant smell in the forest. A lot of water from the snow enliven nature from hibernation

Farewell to Nepal. You are in my heart forever. Nepal is a very spiritual country. Here are believers who worship their Gods day after day. Nepalese are not very educated people, exactly the female gender, but they know the story of what they worship as five fingers. This emphasizes their loyalty. People who live in Nepali are happy, although they are not rich, they appreciate what they have. These people respect tourists and help, though not with money, of course, but they are always happy to suggest something. There were cases when I asked one from Nepalese how to get to a certain street, and he not only told me where it was, but he himself took me to that place, even though I told him not to waste his time, he answered me: "nothing , I'll walk along at the same time! ". I am grateful to this man and will never forget his age. And in general, Nepal is in my heart.
Here are some impressions from our three day canoe trip on the Green River, back in 2014. We actually took so many great photos I decided to split this one up into two parts.
This is the entry-point we used to get down to valley of the Green River.
The road was very exposed. We took a bus that we shared with several other
people and a lot of canoes and equipment.
The bus driver honked several times, signaling our decent because
the road was too small to pass another bus.
This was our entry-point. On the right you can see our bus.
My girlfriend and myself in our rented canoe.
The canyon around the Green River was massive and more than 1000 feet high.
Every apartment or house I’ve been to in Córdoba has a bidet.
As an American you might not even be familiar with what these things are. In fact they're one of the 11 things you see in Cordoba but not in the USA.
Essentially, it’s a toilet shaped sink located right next to the actual toilet that has the marvelous ability to squirt a jet of warm water upwards, cleansing anything that sits upon it’s magical throne.
With zero bidet experience in my life I was a little hesitant to jump on board. For the first 6 months of my bathroom experiences here in Argentina, my bidet remained idle. Then, realizing that real growth only happens outside of your comfort zone, I decided it was time to start living a bidet-filled life.
What is the etiquette with these things?
After a solid #2, I clean matters with the *papel h
Ski is my hobby. And here is the photos from my last trip to the small river near our city.
Summer fishing is beginning!
Here are a few more evening photos captured by my father, during their recent Vacation to Beautiful Hawaii. All photos were taken with an iPhone 6s. Aloha!

We really needed to slow down. We had been travelling too fast and we were looking for somewhere to stop for a while. We hoped to not have to set up the tent every night. To know where we were going to sleep. To familiarise ourselves with a local food vendor. We also needed to save some money, because we’d budgeted for 18–24 months of travel and had used up over half of the minimum not long after arriving in the Mexican mainland.
Our plan was that Guanajuato would be the place where all of this would happen.
We had arranged to swap our time working on some renovation work for a bit of actual accommodation—indoors.
Our arrival in Guanajuato was less than glamorous. We decided to head to the RV park first, to see if we could arrange to park our vehicle there for the next couple of weeks. We promptly got lost.
As usual, we asked Javier (our geographicall
Hello my fellow steemians !
I would like to share some amazing pictures i took together with my wifey at the temples of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom .
We were really impressed by these amazing old buildings !
It's very humbling when you think about how long ago these amazing structures are build.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of this place as much as we did !
