This is Atlas, one of Singapore’s most popular (and most beautiful) bars. While the showpiece tower above the bar may look stunning, it’s also useful: It houses the bar’s collection of more than 1,300 gins from around the world.
View of KL Tower from Heli lounge, a helipad turned into a bar. I’m still in shock at how developed KL is.
My dad was born and raised here and on my first visit back in 1997, I remember being awed by the jungle. It was my first time in SE Asia so everything was new to me. But I remember seeing more green, more palm oil trees, geckos and birds, and even motorbikes. Today there are skyscrapers and highways and malls, malls, and more malls everywhere you look. And so few motorbikes!
Not saying development shouldn’t happen here or commenting on whether it’s good or bad. Just reflecting on seeing a place change over time.
But that’s happening the world over. Even my hometown of Portsmouth, a teeny tiny town in New Hampshire in the northern US, is unrecognizable from the charming, quiet little place it was just a decade ago.
Is your hometown changing before your eyes too?

This is just a stunning place. Just to the north of Látrabjarg, Patreksfjörður is a deep inlet that will just keep surprising you.
Within the fjord you will find many deep valleys that stretch deep into the landscape, well beyond what we can see at any given time from the road.
In this place, you have the rivers from the hills mixing with the waters of the fjord. You have the contrasts of white sand beaches with blue turquoise waters. They might seem inviting…but they are cold and dangerous with a history of lost villages and dreams.
Beyond the hills to the left of the image is an abandoned village in a stunning setting. Time will take it over…but it’s amazing to wander through the ruins of the village and realize that people actually settled and lived here.
The light was nice…the view was spectacular. You see the result.

Hiking back to the car from an incredible afternoon in #mesquitedunes we were greeted to this impending snow storm (that’s right snow in DV) and a blanket of soft red sunset light. Shout out to @giancarlopaterlini who inspired me to share this. Wish we had met up. Enjoy. The park is immense and changes by the minute. Incredible.
You have left me literally speechless with your beauty. You look so radiant and beautiful just like the Queen you know you are. I am sooooo happy for you and your new husband (wow you’re actually MARRIED!!!) and the bright future that’s waiting for you both. I’m saddened that I could not be by your side on your special day but know that I always have your back and will support you in anything !! I loveeee youuuu my sweet sister and I can’t wait until you’re back in Toronto so we can celebrate!!! @haylasa 💕💕💕💕 .
We’re staying at a beautiful hotel on the beach. All the cabins are made from local, natural materials. Gorgeous African art and sculpture decorates the entire compound. Right now we’re laying under coconut trees and drinking bouye - a juice made from the fruit of the baobab tree. Look in my stories for a picture of the fruit. The juice is white and has a thick consistency and loads of vitamin C. I would say it’s a truly relaxing paradise except for the children jumping on my face right now asking over and over when lunch is going to be. But nothing is perfect right? 🤷🏼♀️ . ..
