OMG! Travelling is right for all. So, let's travel :D

OMG! Travelling is right for all. So, let’s travel :D

There is one thing I like from my social media timeline: people posting their travel photos and stories. I am kind of addicted to look at their pictures and read their stories.

Every photo was taken with their own perspective, that somehow I like to guess how they define the beauty of each place. Every story was written with their unforgettable memories when they explored and “lived” in the places. Great thing I found: —>

We took a super early flight from Bali. I was so shocked because we encountered two Indonesians who wanted to cut the check-in line (a rare view in Europe).

A Beautiful Movement Called #illRideWithYou

These past five days, the world has been in a deep grief following the siege in Martin Place, Sydney, Australia, and an abrupt massacre at a supported-by-military high school in Peshawar, Pakistan (Yet the not-yet-solved case in Palestine and other cases in the other parts of the world). I was stuck in sadness and bitterness when I read the news :( Those killers were sick! Some men labelled themselves in the name of holy religion (or politics or any other parties) killed innocent citizens. The reasons behind their inhuman actions are being investigated further. The perpetrator in Sydney called himself as a Moslem and forced two hostages to hold a flag with a Shahada*) written on it. This siege scene in Sydney triggered the anti-Islam attitude across the city. However, the citizens’ reactions moved me into tears.
