Want to walk through the throat of a volcano?
@nate_dodge: It's a rain forest. Inside a volcano. With a lake at the very bottom. Wild would be an understatement.
This is Algar do Carvão, which translates to Cavern of Coal or coal pit. It's an ancient lava tube or volcanic vent on the Azorean island of Terceira in Portugal. It is part of the Guilherme Moniz volcano (one of the large volcanoes on Terceira), but also belongs to the same system as the Pico Alto and Santa Barbara volcanoes. A volcanic eruption occurred roughly 3,200 years ago and created this lava tube which is lined in basalt. A second eruption roughly 2,000 years ago created several magma chambers that are empty today and open for visitors to explore.
Visitors travel down the volcanic chimney and a tunnel and staircases to access caves below the surface. Walking paths are lit and regularly maintained. At the bottom lies a crystal-clear lake formed by rainwater. This lake's evaporation and the frequent rainfall sustain the flora and fauna that survive on the walls of Algar do Carvão. The cave also has the greatest concentration of amorphous silicate stalactites and stalagmites in the world. As far as we are aware, this is the only place where people can see both the volcanic chimney and the magma chambers without being boiled alive.

#WWTTY | Where Will TOTEM Take You?
there’s something about wandering around cities at sunset 🕊
they say travelling is where you go to ‘find yourself’. but i don’t think that’s completely true. i think everything that is yourself is already within you. it’s the experiences that go alongside travelling just like with any experiences within life that unlock those different aspects of yourself; of what may have been hidden before. making you even more aware of all the things you are truly capable of doing ~
It’s always sunset madness on the Island of the Gods 💗🌴✨
This is like “Sunset Final Edit n14” 🙈 who else edits their videos and keep calling them final, final 2, final 3, final final, therealfinal, and so on....?! 🤣
And also whoever guess where this unknown/untouched surf spot is wins a pokemon sticker 😎

It feels like French Riviera. Only that it's in Bizkaia (Basque Country), Spain. And it's not on the Mediterranean coast but Bay of Biscay. Anyway, Bizkaia shares the border with France.
It's Playa de La Concha in Donostia (San Sebastian). My favourite beach in Spain. And Donostia is one of my favourite cities of Spain.

it may look like unreal. it is unreal because it's man-made. sadly the water level keeps decreasing as its source drying up. and rain is less frequent.
i remember one woman asked, "If they claim that global warming has caused the sea level to go up, but why the water level here's gone down?"
lots of explanation & education followed. 🤤 @Yesa Reservoir, Aragon, Spain

Broaden your horizon and bring in new ideas, solutions, opportunities and growth. It is only by getting out of your comfort zone that you start to see things in a different light.
Have you ever seen a Pink Lake? They actually do exist and they are natural. They are caused by the high level of Salt in the Water. With high temperatures and lots of sunlight Algae present in the Lake's Salt crust produces a red pigment called Beta Carotene which causes the pinkish appearance. The Lake returns back to normal in cooler months.

Just because it's almost falling, doesn't mean you should let it go. Instead, you should support it, hold it, grab it or push it back into place. It might still stand a chance of survival.

In and amongst the paddy rice terraces of Bali. Walking through what seemed like a never ending curves of terraces wasn't that easy especially with the heat and high humidity. The beautiful scenery and an amazing landscape made it worthwhile. Definately a must-see in Bali.
