We took our daughter to the Vaishno Devi temple in Jammu to take her blessings, as was tradition in her fathers family. This was my very first pilgrimage, and definitely not an easy one. But during our long walk up, people kept encouraging each other to stay strong and keep walking, saying Jai Mata Di when walking by. We walked 14 km up to the mountain top, did darshan in the beautiful temple, and in the evening we walked the 14 km down. For some reason during this very tough journey, we managed to stay fresh and in a good mood during the entire walk, even Eliana was enjoying our little adventure. #jaimatadi #pilgrimage #hinduism #adventuretime #motherhood #babywearing #ellevill #viklebaby #exploring #india #jammu #jammukashmir #traveldiaries
A motorcycle riding through one of the many glacial water crossings in the Shyok Valley.
Just so you know, the water was bone-chilling cold. There were many such crossings.

The Trinitatis Church.
It is part of the 17th century Trinitatis Complex, which includes the Rundetårn astronomical observatory tower and the Copenhagen University Library, in addition to the church. Built in the time of Christian IV, the church initially served the students of Copenhagen University. It is situated at the corner of Landemærket and Købmagergade. The interior was seriously damaged in the fire of 1728 but was rebuilt in 1731.
The original church consisted of a high, long brick building without much adornment, constructed of small Dutch bricks. The brickwork was laid in a cross-linking pattern of yellow and red stripes, obscured by accumulated dirt. Alterations and repairs in 1675 may have changed the building's appearance. The current exterior dates to the 1870 renovation. The interior is painted white. It consists of a nave with two lofty aisles and a chancel with a three-sided termination. Shaped as a longhouse, it is divided by eight pillars, the easternmost having chamfered corners. The roof was originally covered with slate. A flèche over the chancel houses the bells. The building's west end integrates the Rundetårn tower, which has a spiraling ramp to the top. Other features include buttresses and high granite plinths. The eastern sections have rounded corners. An original rectangular window is near the library floor. The tower originally had arched window openings. On the roof there were dormer windows in two rows. There were four gateways to the church, two on the north side and two on the south side. The church's south side was originally considered the front. As in a village church, the choir was set in the east, and the tower in the west, although the Round Tower was not part of the church. There are vaulted ceilings. The sanctuary was divided by two rows of seven columns in the longitudinal direction matching the church's exterior. What once functioned as the Library Hall now serves as an exhibition gallery and venue for classical concerts. The Marcussen & Søn organ dates to 1956.
We came, we saw, we got rained on, we still conquered. ‘Bout sums up the birthday weekend! First thoughts on 28... it’s gonna be a goodie 🤗
The Church of Our Lady (Danish: Vor Frue Kirke) is the cathedral of Copenhagen.
It hosts every Friday night from eight pm to midnight a free music event called ´God Goes Deep’ with live bands and DJs playing ambient music, a unique experience to have if you visit Copenhagen also there’s a free exhibition on the first floor about the 12 apostles including a bit about Saint James and its Pilgrimage (see pictures)
The present day version of the church was designed by the architect Christian Frederik Hansen (1756–1845) in the neoclassical style and was completed in 1829.
The building measures 83 m in length and 33 m in width. The interior of the nave is 60 m long and over 25 m from floor to ceiling. With all galleries open, the church can seat more than 1100 people. The tower is 60 m high and houses the four church bells. Stormklokken weighs 4 tons and is the largest bell in Denmark. The smallest bell in the tower is used at morning service among other occasion. It is the oldest bell in the country, dating from 1490 and taken from the former Antvorskov Kloster in Slagelse.
