(The main lobby at CEDEI Centro) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first time I felt the altitude in Cuenca (8,000 feet above sea level) was when I climbed the three flights up to the teacher orientation room at my school. I had taken a job at a school called CEDEI, which had three locations. Their main office is right in the center of the city, two blocks away from Parque Calderón. The building is beautiful—high vaulted glass ceiling, tiled floors, plenty of light and plants. To say I was excited to be working here was an understatement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My official role was ESL Instructor, but since this was Ecuador, I got to be called “Professor.” In the United States, you may know, only Ph.D.’s are ever “Professor.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the orientation, I met my fellow teachers for the first time. Many of them were older—people who had retired from their nine-to-fives who were now doing the nomadic teacher gig full-time. I admired them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The directors gave a presentation. We mingled. Then, all 50 teachers filed down to the library, where we collected our books and class lists. I would be teaching four classes: two children’s classes and teenagers during the week, and a class of adults on Saturdays. All of my classes were at a different location on the outskirts of town. . . . . . #storytime #story #posteveryday #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #travel #traveljournal #travelblogger #teacher #esl #eslteacher #orientation #ecuador #cuencaecuador #beautifulplaces #beautifulbuildings #naturallight #indoorplants #oldbuilding

Solomon R. Guggenheim museum - one of many New York highlights 💫 ______________________________________________ #solomonguggenheim #artmuseum #beautifulbuildings #newyorkhighlights
One of the prettiest buildings in DC in my opinion. From far away it's not that striking but up close the ornate metalwork is breathtaking. Looking forward to visiting DC again and spending more time inside . . . . . . . . #museumofafricanamericanhistory #museum #DavidAdjaye #philipfreelon #JMaxBondJr #architecture #photography #architecturephotography #goforawalk #washingtondc #details #beautifulbuildings

This past weekend, inside these doors, I discovered the most GLORIOUS building I have EVER seen. @stjohndivinenyc On a sunny morning stroll up Broadway on the Upper West Side, I stumbled across the Peace Fountain on the grounds of The Cathedral of St John the Divine (see previous post from 5 days ago). Completely smitten with the fountain I decided to take a peek at the interior of the Cathedral. Two fleeting hours later, after countless photos of almost every nook and cranny, I wandered back out into the daylight mesmerized by the absolutely breathtaking architectural and historical treasure I had discovered. This is only a tiny sample of the beauty within North America’s largest Episcopalian/Anglican Cathedral dubbed “St. John the Unfinished”. Perpetually under construction since first breaking ground in 1892, inside you will find the crypts of past Bishops of New York complete with stunning marble effigies, the largest stained glass rosette window in North America, seven uniquely designed offset chapels each with their own story, and perfect examples of every possible architectural element and detail known to mankind. Pure perfection. If you are a design and architecture geek like me, or an admirer of beautiful things, please do yourself a favour and see this masterpiece.

Ez a lány akárhol jár, mindenhol és mindenben talál valami megörökíteni valót. Lehet valakinek ezek csak egyszerű ajtók, koszos épületek erkélyekkel, lámpák amik helyenként már csak állnak, mert más funkciójuk épp nincs, de nekem valamiért mégis tetszenek. Talán az a művészet és tehetség, amire én sosem leszek képes... Így hát megörökítem, amit más hátra hagyott. #nights #photoshooting 📷 #beautifulbuildings #doors #balconys #seethesebeautifulthings #openyoureyes #likeatouristinmyowncity #doratheexplorer #maybeitwillbetrue

Love looking up at the buildings when I walk around leeds. This is one of my favourites on my way to work as It reminds me a little of gringotts from Harry Potter! ❤️ #Leeds #LeedsLife #LookUpLeeds #LeedsBuildings #BeautifulBuildings #HarryPotter #Geek #Hogwarts #Gringotts
This is Lakeview neighborhood in @chicago Snowing at 6:00 am and this look down the street is mesmerizing. 🤔this two street lights have different colors- personalities , but still very same in purpose and potential. • #architecture #blessed #beautifulbuildings #manmade #usa #chicago #architecture #oldcity #chicagoarchitecture #knowthecity #chicagolegacy #legacy #travelphotography #manmaid #craftmanship #iphonexr #visitchicago #travelblogger #travelguide #photoshop #photooftheday

The state of being for Seattle buildings is decay. Rain gnaws at the streets, moss slips over sidewalks and makes velvet coverings for stairs, vines slink through cracks. It is the most lovely thing, even if a little irritating when you fall flat on your face for the twentieth time after you slide on a moss-covered slab. || Capitol Hill, Seattle

Recreating a photo that we took four years ago in Quito’s beautiful basilica. Fun fact: Quito’s the first city we’ve revisited together on our travels. It was amazing having some familiarity while wandering through the cobblestone streets of old town. 🥰💒🌎 ⇣ Ecuador’s a country we fell in love with on our last trip to South America. The people are soo friendly and it’s the only country where you get The Andes, The Amazon Jungle, the beach, can climb the world’s highest volcano and can stand on the equator all in one! 🏝🌋🌊 ⇣ Have you traveled to Ecuador? If so what was your favourite part of this amazing country? 🇪🇨
productive day in the sense that I made banana bread & finished day 2 of #kelseywellspwr week 2. unproductive in the sense that I did no reading... lol. // my sister commented that she’s bored of landscape pics so hopefully the next couple of posts will be food and/or books . . . . . . . #palomawanders #instressedmoment #passionpassport #livethelittlethings #thatsdarling #happythoughts #inspiration #darling #slowliving #mytinyatlas #visualsoflife #stayandwander #cambridge #cambridgelittlegems #visitcambridge #vsco #vscophile #awakethesoul #ofsimplethings #wanderlust #quietmoments #beautifulbuildings #prettylittlecities #simplepleasures #vscocambridge #pwr2019 #kelseywells #pwrprogram

Loved this beautiful, peaceful building!

Riding around Curaçao in Mike’s car, he asked me if I knew why the buildings were all so colorful. I didn’t. He proceeded to tell me that they had originally been all bright White. The whole island. The governor at the time (sometime in the early 1800’s) used to stumble around drunk and would have trouble finding his way back home with all of the similar houses, so he mandated that everyone paint the buildings anything but White to distinguish them... I later read that he had not been a lost drunk, but had complained about horrible migraines which he believed were made worse by the sun reflecting off of the glittering white buildings. He then mandated that they all be painted anything but White to eliminate the headaches. Both versions of the story end the same way... It came out much later that the governor was a major shareholder in the island’s only paint store. And now you know. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂🙄
Also unser Kurztripp nach Flandern zwecks Bildung und Kalorienaufnahme begann traumhaft friedlich und ohne Messer im Rücken des jeweils anderen. Jeder wurschtelte friedlich mit Vorfreude im Herzen vor sich hin, die Katze hat sich nicht versteckt sondern warf den Gladiatoren beim Abmarsch noch gut sichtbar einen herzzerreißenden Blick zu (sie hatte anhand der Anzahl der Katzenklos, Futter- und Wasserschalen berechnet wie lange die Vons sich mal wieder rumtreiben) und der Zubringerbus hat uns nur 5 Minuten im Morgengrauen Frostbeulen kriegen lassen. Unterwegs gab es „Überraschungsfrühstück" in Bierbrauerei mit tiefstem Bierkeller der Welt. Also es gab tatsächlich Kaffee (der weckte aber jeden Zombie auf) und kein Bier und um den zu kriegen mussten wir auch nicht die 153 Stufen runter - Rentnerveranstaltung halt, alles moderat und rollatortauglich. Im Bus hab ich dann angefangen mir "Fifty Shades of Grey" zu gönnen, passt vielleicht noch zu den vielen Pralinen in Belgien und bei dem ganzen hype darum muss man ja mitreden können. Das heißt bei mir kommt bei sowas der hype meist erst, wenn schon alles rum ist. Hab ich von ner Bekannten empfohlen gekriegt, die wartet schon drauf, dass ich Bescheid gebe wann "es prickelt". Also bis Seite 35 prickelt noch nix, geht mir nur auf den Senkel wie schön er doch is und dass sie immer Schnappatmung kriegt, wenn sie ihn sieht. Ich glaub ich gönn mir doch lieber noch ein Schläfchen. 4.15 Uhr aufstehen ist gesundheitschädlich. - - - #antwerpen #visitantwerp #flandern #belgien #citytrip #städtetrip #städtereise #innenstadt #reisegeschichten #reisetagebuch #reisebericht #reisenistschön #reisenmachtglücklich #oldtown #altstadt #amazingbuilding #beautifulbuildings #cityviews #amazingcity #unterwegs #entdecken #iphonephotos #phonephoto #handyphoto #amateurfotografie #amateurphotos #photography_lovers #myphoto #myview #viewoftheday
