Planina Svetog Mihajla je za Francusku ono što su piramide za Egipat.
Iako nije raskošan poput drugih vjerskih objekata koji se nalaze na kopnu, ovaj manastir se svakako nalazi na veoma dramatičnoj lokaciji, na samoj normandijskoj obali. Kada se plima dogodi u vrijeme velikih poplava, što se događa oko 50 dana u godini, Mont Saint-Michel se pretvara u ostrvo, potpuno okružen morem.
Zbog svog specifičnog prirodnog položaja, u vrijeme trajanja stogodišnjeg rata, nikada nije potpao pod Englesku teritoriju.
Na vrhu tornja čija visina iznosi 157 metara, pozlaćeni Sv. Mihajlo pobjednički pruža mač prema nebu.
In a historic milestone for oceanic conservation, the much-anticipated Ocean Clean-up initiative that was created by a Dutch teenager has successfully set sail and is now undergoing its final round of tests before it begins tidying up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The ingenious vessel that has been designed to tackle the massive trash island left San Francisco Bay on September 9th and began testing on September 19th. The vessel, which has been dubbed System 001, travelled 350 nautical miles away from the coast to fulfil its 5-item checklist before taking on the garbage patch. According to the Ocean Clean-up organization, one of the tests has already been successfully checked off the list. Testing is only expected to take one more week before it can tackle the patch. This patch is a massive island of trash drifting halfway between California and Hawaii. Over a trillion pieces of debris have collected there because of the swirling vortex of current, a floating mass roughly twice the size of Texas. After discovering the patch in the 90s, scientists said it would take thousands of years to clean it up but Boylan Slat said in his TEDx talk that he could do it in less than ten, if he could get his special machinery built. “I am incredibly grateful for the tremendous amount of support we have received over the past few years from people around the world, that has allowed us to develop, test and launch a system with the potential to begin to mitigate this ecological disaster,” says Slat.

Queens‼️ Don’t forget that you are ENOUGH—you are an experience. ————
I am not a ride
you cannot hop on and off
of this experience
Whenever you are in search of a discounted thrill
Fleeting and terrifyingly satisfying
Nor am I a baecation
You cannot purchase a discounted travel package
and visit me when you need to getaway or breakaway from the mundane and the misguidance
of bypassing me everyday
I am not a tourist attraction
Do not gawk at me or
pilfer pieces of my essence
to take home and keep in a box
Only to take those pieces of me out to remind yourself
Of how good I feel
How good I make you feel
I am a monument
One that is inside you and all around you
Even when you deny what is inherent and innate
I am mother daughter sister cousin auntie niece
Black-brown woman ebony goddess crowned girl
rare jewel missing piece
I am not your personal treasure or trust fund to squander misuse or abuse at your discretion
I am universal currency
appreciate that I never depreciate
I am not a glass half empty or half full
I have always been and will always be
