I'm starting to get a thrill for this type of stuff. Each weekend I'm trying to do something different while I'm here. When I found out there was another ziplining Iocation I had to do it. This island is simply amazing!
Hey Human! Yes, you eating your lunch, scrolling through your Instagram feed, wasting the precious time you have in life. Can I inspire you to seize your day?
Today I managed to remodel my whole instagram, I removed all the content that was not in line with my pursuit, I planned my posts for the next 12 days, i changed my bio, I ate breakfast, I had some downtime playing a game I love and now I’m about to go hangout with a good friend before working on a photoshoot. I know that might not sound like a lot in all honesty, but what I want to inspire you to do, is to push further, go harder and pursue greater! Only you know the dreams and passions that have been placed on your heart.
So here’s my challenge to you. Today, right now, this very moment I want you to put in place some practical steps that are going to help you achieve your dream! Whether that be writing a list of to dos, or actually getting out of bed to practice you craft, I want you to do something that brings that dream a little bit closer. Anything is possible homies, ya just gotta do it.
Also huge shoutout to my homie @notianmah for showing me around his beloved city of Vancouver! You’re an amazing dude and a beast of a creative!
"Love of country, subordination of personal interests to the common good, concern and care for the helpless and the impoverished - these are among the lost and faded values that we seek to recover and revitalize as we commence our journey towards a better Philippines." ~Rodrigo Duterte
Duomo di Siracusa is quite stunning with its original origins as a Greek Temple that was built by the Normans in the Middle Ages and dedicated to Athena. It eventually was converted to a Christian church and experienced many other incarnations due to its changing rulers. The Duomo is another UNESCO protected site in Ortigia.

Piazza Archimede with Fontana di Diana in the captivating middle. The daylight & nighttime capture.

I can’t believe that I’m staying within steps of the most ancient temple in Sicily. The Temple of Apollo is UNESCO designated protected site and was built in the beginning of 6th century. It’s quite a glorious structure.

The island of Ortigia is the oldest part of Siracusa and, walking from one end to the other, is less than 1km. Ortigia means quail because it’s apparently is shaped like one.

I wasn’t sure where to stay in Sicily until I read all the glowing enthusiasm for Ortigia. I am already charmed.

Ran away from Malta’s rain to Siracusa, Sicily. Picked the island of Ortigia to spend almost a week here. Back in Italy’s soil and the weather is looking good.

Bye, Malta. You’ve been swell except for the rain & the insufferable humidity that made me sweat uncontrollably & untamed my hair. Onwards to Sicily.

Merchants along the Valletta waterfront closed during the afternoon siesta.

A postcard from Valletta & its charming alleys of steps.

The Three Cities are older than Valletta, there’s Birgu, Senglea, & Cospicua. Birgu has existed since the Middle Ages, whereas the others were founded by the Order of St. John after the 16th century. It’s a nice few hours visit from Valletta Port.

Valletta’s fortified walls and the Upper Barracks Gardens (built in the 1590s and used by Knights for recreational activities).

Malta weather is changing. It’s incredibly muggy and humid. I sweat standing still. 😰

Every step has a use in Valletta.

A bit of rain makes everything look rather lush.

Valletta in the rain. The ruins on the left is Malta’s Royal Opera House. I’m serious.

St. John’s Co-Cathedral, a church for the Knights of St. John. A stunning simple exterior & dramatic detailed baroque interior.
