MySpot: Walk in the Park

"Live your truth. 
Express your love. 
Share your enthusiasm. 
Take action towards your dreams. 
Walk your talk. 
Dance and sing to your music. 
Embrace your blessings. 
Make today worth remembering."

London, 2015: London Eye

The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. 
The entire structure is 135 meters tall and has a diameter of 120 meters. 
It is currently Europe's tallest Ferris wheel, but, when erected in 1999, it was the world's tallest.

London, 2015: Houses of Parliament & Big Ben IV

The building that sits proudly on the banks of the Thames is the New Palace, built between 1840 and 1870. 
But within its walls is the Great Hall (or Westminster Hall), 
all that remains of the medieval Old Palace.

London, 2015: Houses of Parliament & Big Ben III

At the north end of the Palace rises the most famous of the towers, Elizabeth Tower, commonly known as Big Ben. 
At 96 meters, the most famous part of Charles Barry's design is the elegant clock tower. 

Bucegi Mountains II

"How to get the best of it all? 
One must conquer, achieve, get to the top; 
one must know the end to be convinced that one can win the end - to know there's no dream that mustn't be dared... 
Is this the summit, crowning the day? 
How cool and quiet! 
We're not exultant; but delighted, joyful; soberly astonished... 
Have we vanquished an enemy? None but ourselves.
 Have we gained success? That word means nothing here. 
Have we won a kingdom? No... and yes. 
We have achieved an ultimate satisfaction... fulfilled a destiny...
To struggle and to understand - never this last without the other; 
such is the law..."

George Mallory

Bucegi Mountains

"I like the mountains because they make me feel small (...). 
They help me sort out what's important in life."
