Sunset Paragliding in Yeghvard

I found myself 1300 meters above sea level. How exciting! I was flying, thanks to Ivan, my “Skyclub” tandem instructor. He casually said I was lucky because the weather was good. I smiled and thought, “I was never lucky but definitely blessed.”, and continued marveling the view afront me while holding a GoPro stick.

Scenic Armenia Beyond Infamous Genocide

Moving past their vitriolic, harrowing history comes plethora of UNESCO heritage sites, I managed jaunting to one – the Geghard monastic complex.

Free taste was a delectable detour, I must say.

The little discomfort will definitely be the least of your worries.

Centro Histórico de Macau: Streets of Heritage

While everyone seemed to flock towards Ruins of St. Paul’s – 17th century stone facade made of intricate carvings with an Oriental theme, one should also not miss Holy House of Mercy, white building afront the fountain; St. Dominic’s Church, yellow edifice that’s rarely get unnoticed, Hotel Central, Leal Senado Building, and Macau General Post Office in Largo de Senado (Senado Square).  

Half-Day Climb to Uplistsikhe Cave Town

Then, it wasn’t about the cave complex anymore but a sublime self-reminder: Fear limits us from our goals. As cliche goes, be bigger than all of them. Dream higher without fear of failure. Love unconditionally without fear of rejection. Travel the unknown without fear of getting lost. Make your own path without fear of disapproval. Life is not meant to be lived with fear but rather strength – every single time.

For an old little country – filled with UNESCO heritage sites and traditions, surrounded by fourth up to fifteenth century monasteries, fortresses, previously one of the battlefields in World War II – Georgia is a historical and geographical point of interest that has imbibed both European and Asian cultures.
