๐Ÿ“ท Thanks to @gallivanti for letting me repost their awesome #goldengatebridge ๐Ÿ“ท! . Once called "the bridge that couldn't be built," today it is one the seven wonders of the modern world. This magnificent span, perhaps San Francisco's most famous landmark, opened in 1937 after a four-year struggle against relentless winds, fog, rock and treacherous tides. . Crossing the strait of the Golden Gate from San Francisco's Presidio to the Marin headlands for 1.7 miles is the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge, easily identified by its International Orange color. Opened in 1937, the bridge was built at a cost of $35 million in principal and $39 million in interest and 11 workersโ€™ lives. The single-suspension span is anchored by twin towers that reach skyward 746 feet, and was once taller than any building in San Francisco. To support the suspended roadway, two cables, each more than 7,000 feet in length and both containing 80,000 miles of wire stretch over the top of the towers and are rooted in concrete anchorages on shore. . . . . . #streetsofsf #alwayssf #igerssf #bayarea #californiacaptures #explorecalifornia #abc7now #onlyinsf #illuminatesf #wonderlustsanfrancisco #igsanfrancisco #nbcbayarea #mysf #sfbaysics #everydaybayarea #mysanfrancisco #bayareabuzz #bayarealife #howsfseessf #sfbucketlist #liveauthentic #travelgramnation #california4fun #bestofbayarea #sfdreaming #calilove #roadtripping
Love all around ๐Ÿ’• Ride bikes, not elephants. Every year, millions of tourists flock to Thailand. Many of them with the hope and dream of riding an elephant so that they can check it off their bucket list and post it on their Instagram. I know the idea of taking a selfie atop one of nature's most beautiful creatures sounds pretty tempting, but before you do let me enlighten you. I'm not here to tell you what to do. I only hope that by sharing this information, it makes you stop and think. Sadly, the elephant tourism industry has become a booming and lucrative business in Asian countries like Thailand. Wild elephants are illegally captured and forced into domestication and a life in captivity. Baby elephants are highly sought after as they are much easier to control than adult elephants. They are taken from their mothers and confined to very small spaces such as a cage or hole. Mahouts or elephant trainers spend countless hours taming and training elephants to do tricks. They are frequently abused and mistreated if they do not live up to their trainers expectations. If you look closely at some of the elephants in the tourism industry you can see scratches and marks on their skin where theyโ€™ve been victimized. Elephants are ridden day after day and hour after hour, sometimes going long periods without food or breaks. In Thailand, it can get excruciatingly hot and without mud to protect their skin, elephants are burned by the hot sun as they carry humans through the rivers and jungles. At the end of the day, it's your decision to make. Like I said before, I'm not here to tell you what to do and I'm not here to criticize. I just hope that I've helped you, in some way, make an informed decision. I just please urge you to keep these things in mind if you're seriously thinking about riding an elephant. If you really want to learn and interact with elephants in a cruelty-free way, I highly recommend the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai. This place is pure magic and truly a natural sanctuary for recovering elephants. #themodernboho

Did you know the California Academy of Sciences has an albino alligator named Clyde? There is an annual birthday party for him each year. More about his story below. โ€œThere are no white alligators in the wild because they're too show-offy," Tang said of the milky white skin. "They get eaten in the wild. So, you can use that to talk about food chains and adaptation. You can talk about how alligators are green because they live in the swamp where there are plants and trees and they can be camouflaged." She added, "You can also use Claude to talk about variation, which is the fuel of evolution. It's one mutation in Claude's DNA that causes this kind of albinism. That shows how sensitive our DNA can be. We only know of a couple dozen white alligators in the world, and they are in captivity." Claude came to the academy in time for its 2008 reopening from a farm in Florida, and for more than a year had a tank mate - a green alligator named Bonnie, who had been "personality tested" for him. That relationship ended badly on a Saturday night in early 2009 when Bonnie bit Claude on his right front foot. "Because he is albino, he has reduced vision. Claude would go into the water and bump into things, and Bonnie would snap at him," said his handler Freiermuth, standing next to the swamp where Claude was in the 78-degree water with his head against the glass. At his annual physical exam in late July, he weighed in at 181 pounds and measured 8 feet 5 inches long. He has 76 teeth. If all goes well, he could live to be 80 years old in the comforts of the academy. . . . . . #aligator #albino #crocodile #crocodiles #gator #gators #albinos #coolfacts #sfbaysics #everydaybayarea #mysanfrancisco #bayareabuzz #bayarealife #howsfseessf #sfbucketlist #wildbayarea #sfguide #sfpulse #sanfranciscoworld #explorecalifornia #citygrammers #liveauthentic #travelgramnation #california4fun #bestofbayarea #sfdreaming
ROCCHETTA Acqua della salute! Puliti dentro ..
Enjoying the sea view and gorgeous sunset from our private pool in Montigo Nongsa. P.s every villa in the resort comes with a private pool!
Officially, Fall is just a few days away ๐Ÿ‚ My basic-ness can be in its prime (as if it ever isnโ€™t). So far we have a lot planned for Fall and I canโ€™t wait for the adventures to come ๐Ÿค— Also, here is an unrelated picture of the New River in West Virginia which should be on everyoneโ€™s bucket list.
Cheers to good friends & good wine ๐Ÿฅ‚ and to @regentportomontenegro for developing this insane infinity pool ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’• . . .

For many New Englanders / leaf peepers, people love the fall colors. But what about ice plant? In California, we donโ€™t have ice plant peepers but hey they change color every time this year. Did you know ice plant changes color in fall? Swipe to left to see the green version of the same plant. We love this time of year with ice plant. Most of the time I donโ€™t like ice plant but I do love seeing the plant turn this rusty red. . . . . . #iceplant #fallcolors #fallcolor #fallcolors ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ #fall2018 #hostagram #californication #californian #howsfseessf #sfbucketlist #wildbayarea #sfguide #sfpulse #sanfranciscoworld #explorecalifornia #citygrammers #liveauthentic #travelgramnation #california4fun #bestofbayarea #sfdreaming #calilove
TIGERS ARE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND ... ... While visiting Phuket, one could not help visit Tiger Kingdom. I was excited to meet baby tigers and play with them, but unfortunately I was not able to. Instead I met this little fella, 5 months old, almost as tall as me, and we cuddled! ๐Ÿฏ. Such a crazy experience! ... ... #tigerkingdomphuket #tiger #thailand #phuket #animallover #crazyexperience #asia #travelingthroughtheworld #worldwithoutborders #sheisnotlost #tltransportme #girlsthattravel #discoverglobe #travelgramnation #girlsthatwander #damestravel #wanderlustvibes #travelphotography #globalista #girlywanderlust #gltlove #travelgram #wanderlustvibes #globetrotter #citizenoftheworld

The only time I like traffic. - Which edit do you like better?
A love song in marble. About a year ago I was anticipating what it would be like to see the Taj Mahal in person & once I saw it last September I couldnโ€™t tear my eyes away. Itโ€™s spectacular. . . . Random thought: I have NO idea how so many instagrammers seem to be able to get photos without a ton of people in the background. We went twice (sunset & sunrise) & it was crawling with visitors. Maybe theyโ€™re better photo editors than me? Stunning regardless. ๐Ÿ’œ
5am boat journey ๐Ÿšค ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Varanasi has been a big culture eye opener for me. I have learnt so much about how the culture here differs from my own. In Varanasi they have burning ceremonies next to the Ganga river. This is because they believe that after death by being laid to rest the the Ganga river they have reached nirvana. Itโ€™s way more of a public affair than the cremations I have came across at home. They encourage tourists to experience it and learn more about it. At first I didnโ€™t quite understand why it was so public, but then I realised that it was just because I wasnโ€™t used to it, and actually it was pretty normal. It was nice to hear that people were so much more open about talking about death too, I have found itโ€™s still quite a taboo subject at home and even though itโ€™s inevitable, people still find it hard to talk about. This is definitely one of the biggest differences Iโ€™ve found between cultures as yet! Ps- correct me if Iโ€™m wrong with any of this information! โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” #girlsaroundtheworld #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #travelawesome #dametraveler #wonderfulglobe #liveauthentic #igshotz #travelandlife #worldplaces #instagood #2instagood #amazingworldtravelers #discoverearth #aroundtheglobe #travelgramnation #girlsaroundtheglobe #girlsaroundthewold #exploretheworld #visitsingapore #wonderfulsingapore #explorsingapore #backpacker #backpackinglife #backpackinggirl #nomadsofsummer #solotravelisfun #solotravellingisfun #scotswhowander #ourediblejourney

so iโ€™m a total adrenaline junkie. i just love the thrill. i live for adventure. i canโ€™t even put it into words but thereโ€™s nothing like it. so of course when i visited south africa, i had to cage dive with great white sharks. gansbaii is the great white shark capital of the world. geyser rock is in close proximity to gansbaii and is home to thousands of cape fur seals which means there are a ton of great white sharks in the area. as we set off on the boat into the ocean, i wasnโ€™t sure what to expect. about an hour boat ride out we anchored and within a minute of doing so, there were already great white sharks within sight. i crawled into the cage and held my breath underwater. the space between the bars was enough that if you had a slip, you would be dinner. I waited, my heart pounding and within seconds i saw my first great white shark. an 18 footer. it was surreal. we made eye contact and he had the darkest eyes and to this day the coldest look that still gives me chills. shorty after i was back in the boat and another great white shark jumped out of the water and his jaw retracted showcasing his hundreds of sharp razor like teeth. the whole experience was amazing. i really believe that sharks in general are misunderstood. they donโ€™t want to eat us. weโ€™re too boney for them, lol. iโ€™m so glad i had this experience and if anything it helps me understand them a little more. #themodernboho
Those who look within, awaken. โ€ข Thoughts that came to mind as I explored the interiors of the often under-rated city of Albufeira, Portugal. This Algarvian city is often classified as the party town of the Southern Portugal Coast making it less desirable for many travelers. And while that may be true during the later evening hours, that simply was not my overall experience when visiting here. โ€ข I found this city to be utterly charming with its white coastal houses and architecture. I'm also personally a HUGE fan of live music which I discovered often and very much appreciated during my time here. โ€ข Moral of the story: If I would have just listened to the outside opinions of others rather than allowing myself to form my own opinion, I would have missed out on this enchanting city, and my god, what a shame that would have been. โ€ข Comment below if you can relate! โ€ข โ€ข #littlestoriesofmylife #traveldiary #albufeira #listentoyourheart
This is the inside of the Castro Theater. Last night we when to the SF Silent Film fall program. 1 day of Silent films all accompanied by the Club Foot Orchestra. They played all movies (which is rare). 10 member Orchestra that played over 6 hours of movies that they showed. The two movies we saw were probably the quintessential silent movie heavyweights - Metropolis and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Both were excellent in their own way. The SFFS festival for 2019 is May 1-5.

Thankfully my part of the world isn't being hit nearly as bad as anticipated during #hurricaneflorence . But, I truly do appreciate the bombardment of well wishes received over the last few days from all of you. If nothing else, it's been a lovely reminder that kindhearted souls do still exist! Please know that very thought alone makes me smile thru the gloom, that all is grand and things are definitely looking up. ๐Ÿ’– . . . . . #lonelyplanet #earthpix #visualsoflife #ig_myshots #liveauthentic #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestinations #bevisuallyinspired #letsgosomewhere #justgoshoot #nature_lovers #instagoodmyphoto #theoutdoorfolk #travelgramnation #ftwotw #discoverearth #agameoftones #earthoutdoors #wandermore #nakedplanet #fantastic_earth #welivetoexplore #ourplanetdaily #exploretocreate #toushaephotography
