What a difference a year can make. I took this picture on my birthday last year in Mauritius.  At this moment, I dedicated the upcoming year to growth with no idea of how or where to start.  I worked countless hours doing things to self-improve and it has certainly paid off. I started a new job that I love, I made meaningful contributions to the community and developed an unconditional love for myself that I never experienced before.  With growth, I also realized that letting go of friendships/relationships that are no longer conducive to my growth is necessary. I’ve learned that not every battle needs to go to war and that in some battles it is ok to surrender.  I can certainly say I am proud of the woman I am becoming and looking forward to what the next year has to offer. Happy Birthday to Me 🎉 🎉🎉

In this moment, I was probably contemplating whether or not jumping off a mountain with a paarachute was a good idea 🤔

London | One of the many Christopher Wren's churches in London. After the The Great Fire of London destroyed many churches, Christopher was commissioned to rebuild 55 of them, so his work is literally on every corner.

London | Chilling in front of what people believe to be the London bridge, but it's not. The real London Bridge is a bit old, simple and falling down.🤪

Eurostar | The train from Paris to London is the best way to travel between the two countries..just buy your tickets early, because like plane tickets the price skyrockets closer to your departure date.

Eiffel Tower | Next level beauty. They call Paris the City of Lights and the best way to see this is a sunset boat tour on the Seine River. It is worth your time and money to see all of the best lit up in elegant fashion.

Life doesn't always happen as you plan it.  Sometimes the deviation will be greater than your wildest dreams.

Montmartre | Free walking tours are key in a major city. Check them out, because they will bring a fresh perspective to your stay, (it was our favorite part of the trip) just remember to tip at the end.

Metro | The Metro in Paris is pretty hard to top. It's user-friendly, quiet, clean, full of personality AND free during the holidays! My kind of public transport.

Гуляем по Самуйским крышам пока гостеприимные пляжи острова (ну а какими им ещё быть ?, их ведь никто не спрашивает 😎) радуют туристов.

Вопрос к знатокам Самуи: "что это за место?" Подсказка - это общественное и очень популярное место острова, локация указана не верно.

I like memorable and meaningful photos. Each photo contains a story which can be reviewed at any age and at any time. I love my job, I love my profession, it gives me pleasure since I create memories for people.

20c in February, we're in short sleeves playing reggae with the windows open enjoying a light breeze and the heavy sun tanning my skin way sooner than I expected it. If this isn't global warming... 👀☀️🍹

When you're reaching new heights...literally! Paragliding over Medellin was such a fantastic experience. Between the amazing view and fresh air hitting my face, it was something you have to experience to understand. I still can't believe that I did this! Alright sky diving is next, who's in? 😁

“A wise traveler never despises his own country.” – Pamela Goldoni. (swipe left to see what’s left)

THE KWAME NKRUMAH  MAUSOLEUM AND MEMORIAL PARK.

This is dedicated to the prominent Ghanaian and first Prime Minister of Ghana 🇬🇭, Dr Kwame Nkrumah. 
The mausoleum was designed by Don Aurthur and houses the body of Dr Kwame Nkrumah and his wife Fathia Nkrumah, it is meant to represent an upside down sword which in the Akan culture is a symbol of peace. The mausoleum is clad from top to bottom with Italian marble, with a black star at its apex to symbolize unity. The interior of the Mausoleum boasts marble flooring and a mini mastaba looking marble grave marker surrounded by river washed rocks.

A skylight at the top in the Mausoleum illuminates the grave, and at the right time, seems to reflect off the marble further emphasizing that beauty many have come to fall in love with.

The Mausoleum is surrounded by water which is a symbol of life. Its presence conveys a sense of immortality for the name Nkrumah. It shows that even in death he lives on in the hearts and minds of generations here and generations yet to come.
