The penguins I saw in Antartica: Chinstrap ( can you identify it?) and Gentoo penguins. Did you know they can dive underwater, walk on land and ‘fly’ in water with their short flippers? I will have to post the videos.....
This is my Mamma prepping to cook Kandu Kukulhu, which is a type of a fish curry from Maldives. It translates to chicken of the sea. Freshly made curry paste is spread on slices of tuna that are then rolled and tied using #pandan leaves before being cooked in a whole bunch of other ingredients (onion, curry leaves, ginger cardamom, cinnamon ,coconut milk+cream etc.)
▫️Mamma’s curry looks something like this. This is still not what we call fish curry or #masriha ▫️this is me carrying a plate of actual Masriha on a boat somewhere in #Maldives ▫️ this picture that #CNNTravel used in the article about top #curries around the world is certainly not an accurate representation of what Maldivians call “fish curry”. While it was nice to be considered a top curry, given that we are a small country and most people have likely not tasted it or seen it, I wish that the reporters did a little more research towards using a picture that is a better representation of it, especially in travel specific journalism. I know it was just a fluff piece but still...😏. Since listicles are how reporting is done these days, here’s 5 reasons why what we saw on CNN is a bad photogandu and a poor representation of the Maldivian fish curry to the readers. (Yes, photogandu means “photograph” in the Maldivian language😌): 1. CHUNKS—We don’t use large fish fillets. We use smaller chunks of tuna in our fish curry. (🍔This is like showing a triangular shaped burger.)
2. TUNA—We use tuna in fish curry. This pictured fish looks like some other type of fish. If it is any fish other than tuna, we specify the type of fish. Tuna is like a synonym for fish. (Kind of how in the US, when you say a burger 🍔, it implies a beef burger)
3. DISINTEGRATION—Yes, #coconut is a primary ingredient in the curry base, however the output doesn’t have a grainy texture. Coconut milk and cream are added, in a timed manner and cooked in low enough temperatures such that the coconut cream and milk and the oil do not separate like it did in the dish pictured. (It was worse than showing a dried-out, overcooked burger 🍔.)

Saryeoni Forest, Jeju-do, South Korea.
Beautiful Saryeoni Forest with its thick and tall cedar forest. It is a wonderful place to walk and enjoy nature.

🔥 Tres vistas de un atardecer porteño que nos regaló colores inimaginables. No llovió, el calor es insoportable, pero esta nubes lo justifican todo.

CHEGAMOS NO PARAÍSO! 😍
Que lugar é esse, Braseeeellll! Tão perto de nós e como ainda não conhecíamos???
Chegamos hoje de manhã em Paraty (quem aí tá colado acompanhando os stories??) e já fomos logo conhecer o famoso Saco do Mamanguá com a @paratytours.agencia! A região é simplesmente um paraíso isolado! 🤩

Depois vamos postar mais fotos do passeio de hoje pra vcs conhecerem mais! ☺️
Several years after moving to Norfolk and I finally made a trip to Horsey to see the seals!
Each year, a large number of seal pups are born on these beaches in the winter months, with over 2,000 born last year. They stay on shore for around 3 weeks whilst their mothers fatten them up before leaving them to fend for themselves. Without their mothers to provide them with food, these little seals have no choice but to brave the water and quickly learn how to fish. From February to April, a large number of seals return to these beaches to moult and once again prove a rather captivating spectacle.
Been gone for a little while — I turned 25 last weekend. I have mixed feelings about getting older. I crave the new experiences that come with age but at the same time the thought of settling down scares the crap out of me. The possibilities of what you can do in your 20’s are endless, but in your 30’s you need to think about more than just yourself: family, kids. I guess what I’m saying is if you’re young then chase whatever you’re after INTENSELY because you never know at what point you’ll need to apply the brakes.
Anyways about this photo! 😅 This is Neist Point on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. I hitchhiked all the way out here and stayed a little too long. The parking lot was almost empty when a kind married couple saved me from being stranded overnight.
The husband told me his wife was like “DON’T YOU DARE PICK HIM UP!” but he had hitchhiked when he was my age so he knew the struggle 😂
