My new favorite sunset spot. It's hard to describe the feeling of watching the lighthouse light spin as the sun goes down, with only the sounds of waves crashing and seagulls squawking in the background. Falling in love with the coast.
Nestled into a beautiful mountainside, the ancient and wondrous Bich Dong Pagoda is a three tiered pagoda built in 1428 by two Buddhist monks. All three pagodas, which are arranged in ascending order, are built directly into the mountain side, making it one of the coolest Buddhist pagodas I've visited yet! ✨ Whilst visiting, you can wander into the mountain behind one of the pagodas and climb up a set of pitch black and mysterious stairs up to what is known as the dark cave, where an ancient Buddha statue resides. This was no doubt one of my favorite things I did in #NinhBinh ! 😍

These days we're lucky enough to call the Coastal Mountain range our 'office'. The lupines are fading, the fireweed is lighting up the mountain, and the salmon are running. Our earth is pretty stunning.
If you're looking for a good doco about keeping it that way, we loved "Chasing Coral" and "Chasing Ice" (both on Netflix).
I stayed near the fire department of Mörsdorf. Another night in the trunk of my car. And I have to say, I like it a lot. The next morning we went to the Geierlay bridge at half past five - I thought it would be a short walk - but no, it lasted between 30 and 45 minutes - but it worth it. Nobody around, only landscape, the bridge and the rising sun, just perfectly peaceful. I'm definitly not the first one to take a picture of the bridge, but i’m also not the last one, so: The early bird catches the worm! #geierlay#bridge
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.
