There’s new cement on the sidewalk
across from where I parked,
Its flawless and even.
But the ground beneath my feet tells a different story.
Marked with fissures and gaps, clefts and crevasses.
And yet, I think,
How much I love the cracks in this concrete -
The bits of green grass and clover growing in between.
The broken spaces where new growth shows through.
It’s prettier than perfect.
It’s also what I like about me.
It’s also what I like about you, too.
The goodness that’s built from the rubble,
The strength that’s formed from the fragments.
Did you know,
In the Japanese tradition of kintsugi,
Fractured edges are filled with gold.
Bonding each break in beauty.
This method of repair is more than a dazzling disguise,
But rather, a display of richness in history,
A showcase of restoration and strength.
You see –
Your shortcomings, your faults,
Your sharp edges and busted seams,
Deserve to be filled with precious metal gleams.
Those details that defy the smooth sameness of perfection,
Which trace the journey of time and trials
That is what makes you beautiful
That is what makes me beautiful, too.
Because shattered glass makes the most beautiful mosaics,
You are so much prettier than perfect.
Not sure how everyone else measures wealth -
But I bet none of the folks on The Forbes 400 list get to park their home in the shadows of El Capitan and eat breakfast in bed while watching the sun rise over Yosemite Valley.
Now, I might not have a handful of zeros listed in my net worth,
and my most prized possessions might all fit within 80 square feet,
but moments like this make me rich.

What an absolutely stunning sky last night! We parked up in our little spot for the night and then headed down to the dog beach with a couple of beers to watch the sunset and let Shanks have a swim. The sky was so red it made the sea look pure pink (no filters!) He made some new friends too 🐾
Werbung • Corsica certainly offers some of the best wild campsites. Wild camping is usually not allowed in Corsica but we were there in the off season and no one seemed to bother about it. To keep it this way, we always leave our campsites cleaner than we found them. This campsite was one of our personal hightlights because it was so remote and quiet. We were the only ones up there and the only noise in the night was a sheepdog barking in the distance.

I guess if you own this bike you can only shop in this store? Catching up on a few photos from Jardin, so far our favorite little heritage town.

Anzeige // Ihr seid schon eine Weile mit dem Van 🚌 unterwegs, seht endlich ein Raststätten-Schild und könnt es kaum erwarten, endlich eine Pause zu machen 🚽🤭. Blöd nur, wenn ihr dann vor den Toiletten merkt, dass ihr gar kein Kleingeld dabei habt 🙄. Ich bin ja generell so ein Kandidat, der fast nie Bargeld im Geldbeutel hat. Gott sei Dank kann man mit seiner girocard von der @sparkasse ganz bequem und schnell kontaktlos bezahlen. Also kein endlos langes Kleingeld suchen mehr, sondern einfach und schnell bezahlen und den Rest der Pause genießen. Wer nur Snacks und Co. unter 25 Euro kauft, muss in der Regel sogar nicht mal seine PIN eingeben. 😇 #kontaktlosbezahlen#sparkasse

Another day, another run in the Algarve. Stunning views from the beach and the cliffs.

Dieses Jahr stört kein hektischer Vorweihnachtskram die besinnliche Adventszeit. So hatten wir uns das immer vorgestellt.
" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Stayed during October half term. Ideal for access to surrounding coast. Used the bus with a £5 all day rover ticket. Excellent value and much easier and cheaper than trying to drive the motorhome around the narrow lanes and paying for parking. I parked on the coastal facing edge of the park. View was a plus, but it was very exposed to the wind. There were reports of awning pegs working loose! Having said that, there are many hedges offering protection from the wind, and less exposed areas of the site. Will definitely return. Staff were helpful and facilties clean and well spaced for access." - admiral halsey, website review
An alle mit Dachterrasse: habt ihr eine fixe Leiter am Bus, oder ein ausziehbare im Auto liegen? Oder steigt ihr auch so elegant wie Vali auf diesen Fotos (⏩ swipe!) über den Sitz hoch? (Icht natürlich nicht die Endlösung - daher brauchen wir mal eure Meinung)
Schreibt uns bitte gerne in die Kommentare wie ihr dies gelöst habt oder es lösen würdet ☺
Welcome to Guinea-Conakry 🇬🇳! We decided to take a remote border crossing using a track described as “one of the worst tracks in the whole region”.... 😬 with our 4x4 training from @truegrip_offroad we tackled the steep rocky ascent up to the Guinea Highlands from Senegal and onto what looked to be a national highway in Guinea. However all was not as it seemed... 🕵🏻♀️ the national highway turned out to be the hardest road of our trip to date. Two days and only 120km later we emerged into a semblance of civilisation, having seen no other traffic! 😅 Great fun though and awesome to get well and truly off the beaten track! 🧭
First line sunrise! 🌅
Great overnight spot near #cabodegata What actually deters some young adventurous couples, is like a miracle to us! Open bar with good beer and food, but secluded enough, with plenty of safe space for Frankie to explore!
