Non c’è nessuno, direte voi. Eppure ci sono io, che scatto questa foto. E con me ci sono tutte le persone che non ci sono nella mia vita ma che io immagino sempre con me. Lì infondo c’è lui, che sbuffa, perché a lui non gliene frega niente di arte e cultura. E io mi arrabbio. Per finta. Perché poi basta un abbraccio e non ci sono più distanze.

On Sunday mornings a bunch of streets in Mérida’s Centro are blocked to traffic for locals to cruise on their bikes. None as badass as this guy (*Kendrick Lamar soundtrack blasting from his speaker*).
Next week is exciting for many reasons. Firstly, we’ll be heading back up north to Durham on our next @visitengland trip. This corner of England stole our hearts on our last trip to Northumberland and we can’t wait to get back (even if snow is due). Whilst we’re there, we’ll be meeting with a Visit England Tourism Superstar Finalist - Richard Darlington. Richard runs Hall Hill Farm and is a shepherd! We’ll be spending next Saturday with him, learning all about what being a shepherd entails as well as (hopefully) seeing some little lambs 🐑 🐕 Secondly, after spending Friday at Instagram, our podcast talking to @whitneyrosenthal Head of Emerging Talent at IG will also be going live this week. Our hour long chat about all things Instagram inspired us SO much and we hope it’s equally inspiring for you guys too! We’ll talk more about this once the podcast is released, including our biggest takeaways from it and how it will change how we use this platform in 2018. ❤️
As I roamed around the ruins of the Dunnotar Castle, I tried to imagine what life was like for a girl my age living here. I’m sure she had the similar hopes, fears, dreams, heartbreaks and happy moments. It’s incredible how over the years so much changes but humans at the core, down to their heart and souls- have such a common ground. Truly feeling the #ScotSpirit here in Scotland. A special place indeed @visitscotland@flynorwegian#flynorwegian#nastasiainscotland 🏴

Every time myself and Anthony are on holiday we seem to end up in at least one gallery full of statues. I like to point out ones that look like him, and we found a real doppelgänger in the Vatican a few years ago!
Lindoso is famous for these stunning set of restrained espigueiros.
An area composed of 50 granaries near the castle of Lindoso, These pequeas stone buildings for storage of agricultural products, and presents a unique set in the country and a rare beauty. entirely in stone, each model is based on the short pillars, on the bass of the rock and topped with loaves or tables...
Lindoso espigueiros were built in the 17 - 19 centuries as essential for maximum performance of maize crop because of its excellent conditions for the preservation of the product against the elements and animals #portugal_em_fotos
In honor of the temperature right now (-9), here’s a beach throw back! 😂😭

Favorite terrace in Oaxaca. Can’t get enough of terra cotta and blue together either.
I am bracing to return to a Midwest March soon and will miss the color, temp, flora, and people of Oaxaca. But Modela must go on—meaning I need to go back and do an online spring release!
To not be tempted by outside influences & follow your own convictions in the hectic world we live in today can sometimes seem impossible. ⭐️ However the rewards of hard work overweigh those of unnecessary distractions. 🙏🏻✨ Inspiration Will Come To You, Be Ready For It. ✨

My 16-year-old self is in love with all the VW Beetles here 💕
Do you recognize these cute cherubs? No cherub or group of cherubs is so famous as these two. Heavily marketed, they have been featured in stamps, postcards, T-shirts, and wrapping paper.
They lean on the altar top at the very bottom of one of Raphael's most famous works, The Sistine Madonna. One of the most famous paintings of all time has its home in Dresden.
- #swipeleft ⬅️ The painting takes it's name from the church of San Sisto in Piacenza and Raphael painted it as the altarpiece for that church in 1513-1514. The piece was purchased in 1754 by King Augustus III of Saxony for his collection in Dresden.
After World War II, it was relocated to Moscow for a decade before being returned to Germany. It is now a masterpiece of the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister.
Commissioned by Pope Julius II in 1513, The Sistine Madonna is one of the world's most recognizable paintings. Capturing the public's imagination ever since its creation, the two cherubs at the bottom of the altarpiece who sit as observers looking up at the Madonna and the Christ child as they descend from a heavenly space.
The Sistine Madonna is painted with the illusion of being on a stage. This stage appears visible from the plank that the cherubs rest on and the curtain and rod that frame the painting. The curtains are open for the display of the Holy Mother and the Christ Child for the audience as Pope Sixtus II presents the Madonna to all who have come to see her.
The museum was closed while I was visiting... I leave this pending so I will return. ✁------------------------------------------------------- #sistinemadonna#dresden#iamatraveler#travelgram#globetrotter#travelgirl#traveldiary#traveltheworld#passionpassport#mytinyatlas#ig_travel#inspiremyinstagram#theglobewanderer#aroundtheworld#worldtraveler#ecuatorianosenelmundo#germany#ilivetotravel#passportready#traveladdict#viajandoporelmundo#viajaresvivir#wanderlust#igtravel#girlslovetravel#travel#tourism

Magical mélange of coffee, music & people... & it’s opened by a fellow Singaporean!🤗 #singaporepride
I believe we’ve discussed the very ambitious bucket list of my daughter before, but she revisited the topic again yesterday. It started while discussing finding an indoor skydiving place (the youngest is particularly keen to do this again) and then progressed to questions about bungee jumping off bridges. “So, Mom - now it’s becoming president of the USA, and then bungee jumping...... actually I also really want to see inside a boys bathroom.” The other daughter interjects, “oh I’ve seen inside the boys bathroom at our school - it’s DISGUSTING, trust me, you don’t ever want to do that.” #stuffmykidssay#prettycitynewyork#theprettycities

I’ve had an unusually slow weekend. I’ve never been very good at that, and to be honest I don’t know how parents of young children can ever really have slow weekends—there are always little people clamouring to be fed and entertained and read to and generally looked after.
But now that my kids are a bit older, I’m starting to see light (and rest!) at the end of the tunnel. I got a lie-in this morning (my husband took the kids to their 8am swimming class and then made a fairy garden with them—yes, he is a hero). We went to the park, made nice food, ate cakes, watched movies under a blanket to escape the cold, and generally took it easy for a change. This feeling that we’re coming out of the trenches of parenthood is really quite novel.
Oh and this is Clapham btw—we went there this afternoon for a bit of a change and there are some very nice houses around the Common.👌🏻
