I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. ~E. E. Cummings

It was such a warm morning after a freezing cold night at the top of Adam’s Peak. Such a lovely painting of my favorite colors with a hint of white fluff. Mother nature is the best artist of all times ❤

Mesmerizing views as I was going down Adam’s Peak ❤ – Sri Lanka 

Adam’s Peak is the second highest peak in the island of Sri Lanka, it’s also known as Sri Pada which means “Sacred Footprint”. It holds religious importance to the people of Sri Lanka due to the footprint on top of the mountain which is believed to be the footprint of Buddha to Buddhist, Adam to Muslims, Lord Siva to Hindu, and St. Thomas to Portuguese Christians. The mountain is 2243 m high and the summit can be reached after a climb of 5000 to 6000 steps. Adam’s Peak is an important pilgrimage site especially to Buddhist, people usually climb it at night to witness the sunrise and the dawn procession. At the top there is a bell that pilgrims are entitled to ring when they reach the summit, for as many times as they have made it up to the top of the sacred mountain.

I was lucky enough to have had the chance to make the climb myself, it’s not an easy one but definitely not impossible to achieve. Stay tuned for more of my trip to Sri Lanka 😉

“In that yle is a great Mountayne and thei of the Countrey seym, that Adam and Eve wepten upon that Mount a hundred Zeer whan thai weren driven out of Paradys” ~ Sir John Maundeville.

“One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else–closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel–one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them–even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering–the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.”

Though here is a word of warning–you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.” ~ Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure

The Young Lovers by Georg Ehrlich outside St Pauls Cathedral – London 

“The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they’ve died. They’re like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made of stone, they’re made out of the memories people have of you.” ~ R. J. Palacio
