Does the word Ski-Doo mean anything to you?
It didn't to me until I got the epic opportunity to ride one. It's essentially a jet-ski on land.
Imagine flying across the snow at great speeds, snow dancing across your face & knuckles white from gripping the handles intensely!
Definitely an incredibly thrilling and exhilarating experience! Thanks to a friendly Canadian who helped all us Aussies have the ultimate winter experience. ❄ 💙
~~~ Vatnajökull ~~~
When it was last time you felt overwhelmed by a place? I feel this year I’ve had this feeling many times in different places but in Iceland you have also the constant impression of feeling small. A tiny, invisible creature at the mercy of nature.
Look at the Vatnajökull glacier for instance (the one we are staring at into this picture), it is there at least since 2,500 years and covers the 8% of Iceland’s landmass! Underneath this enormous iced cap there are at least three active volcanos, one of which erupted quite recently and another which is expected to erupt soon (probably with disruptive effects similar to the one of the famous Eyjafjallajokull).
It was a strange experience staying there in the middle of this lagoon immersed into the absolute silence while everything was actually in constant movement, invisibly under our eyes!
Iceland’s ever changing landscape is something that amazes me and scares me at the same time. Will this place, where I was so happy that day in springtime, exist in a couple of months or years when Mother Nature will decide to repaint everything again?
I don’t know but Icelanders say that you can return in Iceland as many times as you want but it will be always different from the place you left and I hope it will be always like this, so different from any other place on Earth.
So I initially thought this was a statue when I was cruising down La Rambla until #elangeloelarambla started stroking some guy’s head as they posed for a pic after he put money into her bucket. Imagine if it was my head she was stroking AND my mum saw it. JESU! She will slap me then get the prayer warriors on me 😂 African parents 🙄🙄 Anyway, that whole ish caught me off guard I was shooketh when she started moving 😂.

After paying €70+ for some other dead place (pics loading), we thought it was probably best just to take pictures of the Cassa Battlo from the outside after seeing the cost of entry 😂 Awon Oloshi want chop my money 😂 #LINKINBIO for the latest blog.

“When you can live a life without compromises or regrets, you’ll approach happiness. If you compromise your values, you’ll be miserable and likely have a psychological breakdown”- @cernovich.
If there’s anything I’ve learnt from @cernovich it’s that, it’s possible to learn from those you have a difference of opinion with on specific matters.
Anyway Mike, thanks for teaching me about the #GorillaMindset. Although I must admit that I transgressed some of it’s principles. But, it wasn’t until I truly understood that the Gorilla Mindset isn’t a destination, but a way of life, that I started reaping it’s full benefits.
Oh and btw, don’t forget to read @abi_ggeoff’s blog. #LINKINBIO
Don’t let this picture distract you from the fact that @abi_ggeoff decided to write as a guest on strength with substance. I figured I’d let someone else share their story. Can you guys show him some love real quick! #LINKINBIO

I’m not sure if people read captions but who cares:
It’s been a challenging few days and I’ve never felt so powerless in my life. All the weaknesses I never knew existed decided to capitalise and attack all at once.
I’ve been presented with some “chopportunities” (challenging opportunities) as she calls it and, my initial reaction was to run rather than embrace it with open arms.
See, I never really thought I’d be scared of the unknown and I even thought I defeated my fear of failure. Goes to show that life is a constant battle.
Anyway, one thing I know is that my doubts and self doubts have no bearings on what is and isn't possible.
I’ve made my peace with the fact that I may end up looking stupid if this thing doesn’t go to plan. I might even feel embarrassed or even fail miserably but, I guess going all in is the only way to deal with these bullshit emotions that think they have power over me! I have two choices:
I can either EVOLVE or DIE. The latter is definitely not an option. #LINKINBIO

I lowkey find this picture depressing but I guess it fits the purpose, context & theme of the blog above. We all have our problems and challenges, but I wanna know the real reason why you’re able to keep your life together. With regards to my little project, you can find out my purpose and vision for it. #LINKINBIO
