Everytime we are posting

Everytime we are posting a waterfall picture the song "waterfall" starts playing in my head. It goes: "Dont go chasing waterfalls.Please stick to the rivers and the lakesthat youre used to. But actually thats terrible advice, it should go. "Do go chasing waterfalls. Please get outside and explore the unknown." (Not a good songwriter, but you get the idea) This picture was shot at one of the highest waterfalls in Bali. The track down was exhausting, but as always totally worth it. Have an awesome weekend and explore more. - - - - - - - - - - #waterfall #exploremore #thebalibible #balilivin #thebaliguru #explorebali #balidaily #sheisnotlost #travelgram #moodygrams #girlsborntotravel #dametraveler #girlstravel #travelgirls #travelgirlsgo #theglobewanderer #balicili #wearetravelgirls #wearethewild #balibuddies #islandvibes #thebaliadvisor #igersviennaontour #instagoodmyphoto #visualambassadors #explorearound #nomadgirls#wetravelgirls #passionpassport #howisummer

So no matter what you do

So no matter what you do in Barcelona, whether you leave the city for a trip or not, you'll end up at Barceloneta Beach. You want to go to Montjuc and El Born? You'll still end up at Barceloneta Beach in the evening. I mean, no wonder, it's one of the nicest city beaches I know of. Who else returns here every time they are in Barcelona? . . . . . #barcelonamagazine #teamcanon #igersvienna #igersitalia #igerscroatia #crostagram #igersgermany #whitefeed #whitetheme #whitethemeproject #feedgoals #wanderlust #travelgram #instatravel #fromwhereisit #igersviennaontour #summerfun #igersbarcelona #igersbcn #barcelonainspira #barcelonaambtu #barcelonacontigo #mrporter #ilovebarcelona #fromwhereistand #sunset #lifesbetteratthebeach #igersespaa #skyline #ipreview

An extract on #igersviennaontour

The history of Asia can be seen as the distinct histories of several peripheral coastal regions: East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, linked by the interior mass of the Central Asian steppes. The coastal periphery was home to some of the world's earliest known civilizations, each of them developing around fertile river valleys. The civilizations in Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley and the Yellow River shared many similarities. These civilizations may well have exchanged technologies and ideas such as mathematics and the wheel. Other innovations, such as writing, seem to have been developed individually in each area. Cities, states and empires developed in these lowlands. The central steppe region had long been inhabited by horse-mounted nomads who could reach all areas of Asia from the steppes. The earliest postulated expansion out of the steppe is that of the Indo-Europeans, who spread their languages into the Middle East, South Asia, and the borders of China, where the Tocharians resided. The northernmost part of Asia, including much of Siberia, was largely inaccessible to the steppe nomads, owing to the dense forests, climate and tundra. These areas remained very sparsely populated. The center and the peripheries were mostly kept separated by mountains and deserts. The Caucasus and Himalaya mountains and the Karakum and Gobi deserts formed barriers that the steppe horsemen could cross only with difficulty. While the urban city dwellers were more advanced technologically and socially, in many cases they could do little in a military aspect to defend against the mounted hordes of the steppe. However, the lowlands did not have enough open grasslands to support a large horsebound force; for this and other reasons, the nomads who conquered states in China, India, and the Middle East often found themselves adapting to the local, more affluent societies. The Islamic Caliphate took over the Middle East and Central Asia during the Muslim conquests of the 7th century. The Mongol Empire conquered a large part of Asia in the 13th century, an area extending from China to Europe. Before the Mongol invasion, Song dynasty reportedly had approximately 120 million citizens; the 1300 census which followed the invasion reported roughly 60 million people. The Black Death, one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, is thought to have originated in the arid plains of central Asia, where it then travelled along the Silk Road. The Russian Empire began to expand into Asia from the 17th century, and would eventually take control of all of Siberia and most of Central Asia by the end of the 19th century. The Ottoman Empire controlled Anatolia, most of the Middle East, North Africa and the Balkans from the mid 16th century onwards. In the 17th century, the Manchu conquered China and established the Qing Dynasty. The Islamic Mughal Empire and the Hindu Maratha Empire controlled much of India in the 16th and 18th centuries respectively.
