In my last post, I shared about the difficulties we’ve had while traveling in Pakistan. But I want to be clear that I am by no means discouraging you from visiting this country. In fact, our time here was well worth it and there is so much I love about Pakistan ❤️
For one, the people there are fantastic. I’ve been overwhelmed again and again by the kindness of strangers we’ve met there - especially by the drivers who insisted on not taking our money because “we’re guests of their country” 😭🙏🏼 When we asked strangers if we could use their hotspots to book Ubers, many of them took the chance to welcome us to their country, gave us their numbers and told us that if we needed anything, we could let them know. There was a palpable sense of warmth coming from the people here and I was really touched by it 💛
Not to mention this country is absolutely stunning. We only got to see Lahore, Islamabad and a bit of Pindi due to limited time, which means we’ve barely scratched the surface. There is so much history and beautiful architecture in the cities, but I’d love to come back and see the breathtaking nature this country has to offer too! 🌿
And last but not least, even though the food was a bit too oily and meat-heavy for me, it was actually freaking delicious 😋 My personal favorites were tikka and karahi, but there are so many traditional dishes to try and it’s all really flavorful! Just make sure to find some restaurants with veggie options too if you’re not used to eating so much meat. Apparently we were just bad at finding them 🙈
Any questions about traveling in Pakistan? 🇵🇰👇🏼

Wow! This one popped up on the discovery page, but it’s not from Lapland! Snowy views at Brambrüesch Mountain in Graubünden (with Piz Bernina 4049m in the background). Capture by @arminmathis.ch last Winter 2019 in mid January ❄️🌲👏🏻👏🏻 👏🏻
Have always enjoyed diving in Padang Bai here in #bali, recently we have had some amazing viz on the dive sites and perfect conditions for our Divemaster interns to practice guiding and getting to know the aquatic life on the range of sites around Padang Bai. I always find new DMs go way to fast when guiding their first to dives, but when life is so colourful you can’t help but naturally slow down and enjoy the sights. #divingthedream
Quest'anno è stata recuperata la vecchia tradizione veneziana del ponte di barche che fino al 1950 collegava le Fondamente Nove con l’entrata monumentale del cimitero di San Michele durante la settimana della Commemorazione dei Defunti. .
Un gesto importante non solo verso la Città, che puòrecuperare in questo modo un pezzo della sua storia, ma anche nei confronti di tutti coloro che possono recarsi al cimitero per ricordare i loro cari potendo scegliere di farlo a piedi.
Nello specifico sarà assemblato un ponte galleggiante di circa 407 metri di lunghezza e 15,5 metri di larghezza, con elementi modulari in carico a Insula come quelli già utilizzati in occasione del ponte votivo del Redentore, della Festa della Salute e quello della VeniceMarathon. Tale ponte avrà un varco alto 3,5 metri e largo 10, che permetterà il passaggio delle imbarcazioni. .
