Why do I get to fall in love with each tree? Let me tell you why: a tree changes carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe, it sequesters carbon and provides much shelter for countless critters. There are many reasons for which we should all be tree-hugging hippies, but within the scope of this blog post, all we’ll focus on are the looks of these amazing nature wonders.

Food rarities: to eat or not to eat, that is the question! 🤣😁😆😅
I found these rare combinations of foods in the interwebs.
People just posted these pics without describing the ingredients and what to do with them. And for the life of me, I couldn’t find the name of them anywhere. I was wondering if any of you know what kind of food this is and if you would eat it!
I was wondering who eats this kind of ingredients and the combination of them.
I usually eat everything, normal, common and some rare food, but these are way over my league.
I like to try food from all over the world and experiment different flavors. But these foods look too weird, even for me who has tried it almost all!
Amazing artistic architects create homes that are unique wonders around the world. The singular winsomeness of these structures are mind and eye captivating.
Some of them might look uncomfortable or rustic, but they have the most modern technology and ample spaces to perform any activity within the house. The bedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms of these houses are enormous.
For example, the retro design of the first house image (the Flintstones Cave house) is most certainly not stuck in the past. It comes with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, a large television area, a spacious kitchen and fully working WI-FI.
The second image is the Star Trek House. It is designed with the interior of the Star Trek Voyager spaceship, complete with LED lighting and intergalactic sound effects.
The third house is House Spitbank Fort in the Solent near Portsmouth Harbour
The fourth image is of a floating house, which is very stable and combines both nautical and modern luxury. It boasts 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a rooftop terrace, a boat lift and deed parking.
Perfectionists have a lot of baggage that other people don’t, and that baggage comes from constantly striving to appear perfect.” Basically, it’s not easy being perfect; it’s heavy and exhausting.
When we live a rigid life in order to attain out-of-reach goals, we miss out on the organic rhythms that our mind and bodies might be moving to in a life less focused on perfection. Striving to be great … or good or even just okay.
Messy but lots of Fun!
Rather than perfect allows one to find their groove and excel, even if that means excelling with a messy sink or undone hair. And when you get to that point, and can find the liberating joy of imperfection? I would say that’s pretty perfect.
Messy Beautiful Hair!
Furnham says that people focused on perfection tend to have low self-esteem, noting also the presence of “guilt and its fellow travelers, shame and self-recrimination.” Admittedly it’s not clear if low self esteem feeds perfectionism or if perfectionism feeds low self esteem, but when I think of the more confident people I know, they are the ones unashamed of imperfection.
I for one stopped being so rigid in my cycling schedule. I now dress the way I feel like, colorful if I want to, no planned routes. Yes, I am a Messy Cyclist, and I LOVE IT!
Beneath the opera house, Palais Garnier, there sits a water tank, and some folks say that once a man lived there who had no face. “The Phantom of the Opera” was based upon this place. The inspiration for Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera.

My family and I love forests. Wherever we travel around the world we have to visit the enchanted forests the country we are visiting has. There is some special magic in the woods that penetrates our minds and soul. I think that forests are the soul of the earth and as such we cherish them.
BAVARIAN FOREST PATH IN AUTUMN 2018
Germans are passionate about their forests. They really are. And I love this country, its culture, its people, its forests of course. I could spend my whole life in the woods of Germany, exploring and rapping my body and soul with the smell of the trees and the magic of its soil. Now. the clouds over the mountains, just a magnificent wonder of this earth.
BLACK FOREST IN AUTUMN 2018 HAUSACH GERMANY
Into the woods
With that in mind, I’m travelling to the Spessart forest in southern Germany. The 2,500 square kilometers (1,553 square miles) of tree-covered mountains that straddle the states of Bavaria and Hesse. It is home to many species of Specht, or woodpecker, from which it is thought to derive its name. Badgers, wild boar, deer, racoons and martens are among the other wildlife that live between and beneath the trees.
