Not a lot of people know that Pakistan is a heaven for bikers and Motorcyclists.
You get to this spot if you approach Skardu from Deosai Plains. In the background, you can spot the amazing blue Sadpara Lake.
We captured this moment during our motorcycle trip to Northern Pakistan with some ex-pats and a foreigner friend.
Little did we know that after a potentially life-taking drive from Deosai to Sadpara, we will have to encounter a land slide. A land sliding so big that it took us around 2 hours just to cross it on foot.
It took more than two weeks for the road to get cleared again. You can now have a better idea of how huge the land-slide was.
These are the risks that bike travellers should be prepared to face in Pakistan. But the reward is just undefinable. These risks are just peanuts in front of the reward.
We will make another post on the return of such adventures inshaAllah.
P.S. We were lucky and managed to park our bikes at a hotel located before the land-slide area, and hence crossed the Mountains on foot.
Today we visited the remains of Canada’s biggest landslide, 29th of April 1903
90 million tonnes of rock fell from the face of turtle mountain destroying half of a town called frank killing 100 of the 600 residents. Amazing the rubble was pushed 1.3km across the valley to the other mountain, amazing place to see as the town is still buried under all the rock! #blastfromthepast#frankslide#rock#landslide#history

Lightning is typically a covered occurrence. Often times, homeowners don't realize they've had a lightning strike. Other times the damage is more pronounced. If lightning strikes, call a claims professional for assistance.
Photo 30/30 - Thank you all for putting up with my rather dull photos for the past 30 days. First #30daychallenge complete. Next is to practice on our new guitar everyday for 30 days and learn #landslide in the process (@jamestudsbury and I are competing, yes) #bringit
This song feels personal because it is.
Number fourteen AND fifteen on my Landslide playlist: “Hurt” by NIN.
When a writer has the ability to maximize human emotion into few words ... it’s nothing short of amazing. An experience all Reznor’s own becomes a piece for everyone. The intention is still the creator’s but now it’s shared — and it’s his and yours and ours. It’s whatever we feel pounding against the walls of our chests.
That’s the power of lyric. Of poems.
Some people shy away from what they call darkness. But in these beautiful nuances of our souls we find light. We find relatability. We discover we are not alone.
No excerpt from Landslide today or tomorrow. The mention of the song in the novel contains spoilers. “Hurt” is referenced in the final chapter — the place some have called a cliffhanger.
It’s personal because it is.

This year has been so crazy. I loved laughing with you guys. I loved crying with you guys. Playing Landslide for the a&h students, and most importantly, the amazing seniors that will be missed greatly, was so great. The little mistakes and out-of-tune guitar made it so vulnerable for me, and I hope you all appreciated that. Swipe for Lily and her lighter. (I’m playing in front of the amazing work of @imannaalmeida . Love you lots)

More progress on the belt buckle got the hinge figured out just need to figure out the tang.
Landslide is one of the geological phenomena that causes devastation to life and properties in many areas. In these recent years, the area with high exposure of landslide incidence increases due to land-use and climate change. Thus, landslide mitigation and management plan need to be conducted in land use planning to reduce the risk of landslide occurrence. One of many mitigation efforts that we can do is by building the landslide susceptibility map (Guzzetti et al., 2012). For mapping the landslide susceptibility of an area, we can follow, at least, four essential steps.
Check these uploaded images and read the attached article to get a brief introduction of landslide susceptibility map! Hope you enjoy it 😘
This video needs to go viral!!!! Scariest Shit !!!!!🥺💔... A Vice-Principal should Understand the Problems of Students In this kind of Situation!!! Don't Always Scold us for Not attending the classes 🙂✋.We are Also Human! 🙂.You come to school Once or twice in a Year that's also in Your Vehicle, All the Students are not Rich to effort Vehicle's ...🙂 You really need to walk then only you'll Realize How Hard/Tough it is. Even about the School , not only me but there are several students who are Staying far From the School.
DOUBLE SINKHOLE ARGENTINA 🇦🇷. AWESOME FRIGHTENING NATURE 🔥🔥🔥
. What is a sinkhole?
A sinkhole is a depression in the ground that has no natural external surface drainage. Basically, this means that when it rains, all of the water stays inside the sinkhole and typically drains into the subsurface.
Sinkholes are most common in what geologists call, “karst terrain.” These are regions where the types of rock below the land surface can naturally be dissolved by groundwater circulating through them. Soluble rocks include salt beds and domes, gypsum, and limestone and other carbonate rock. Florida, for instance, is an area largely underlain by limestone and is highly susceptible to sinkholes.
When water from rainfall moves down through the soil, these types of rock begin to dissolve. This creates underground spaces and caverns.
Rock slide atau longsoran batuan adalah peristiwa runtuhnya tebing batu besar di suatu tempat berlereng curam..
Runtuhan batu besar tersebut dapat terjadi kapan saja, kaya mantan yg bisa dtg kapan aj saat kamu lg males ketemu dia 😉😉😉
Jangan lupa tag temen2nya ya. 😉😉😉
