We Crossed The Caucasian Mountains In Georgia With Our Bicycles

We Crossed The Caucasian Mountains In Georgia With Our BicyclesWe’re Rafał and Aleksandra, a couple who travel by bikes to hardly accessible locations and take pictures of landscapes, different cultural traditions and different ways of life. For our last trip we chose Georgia – a remote, unknown and visually amazing country.

On June, we set off on a journey around Svaneti Region. We traveled through the high Caucasus Mountains, avoiding huge cities as much as we could. We started the trip in Jvari and our main goal was to reach Ushguli, located at the foot of Shkhara, the highest inhabited village in Europe. Then we crossed Zagari Pass with maximum elevation of 2,616 m. The area is snow-covered for 6 months of the year and quite often the road is impassable.

The journey brought us a lot of adventures. It’s pretty exciting meeting random local people, speaking different languages or mimicking for communication.

One Old Van Kickstarts A Life Of Adventure And Exploration For This Man

To date, Burke has covered 60,000 miles across the U.S. and Canada. - One Old Van Kickstarts A Life Of Adventure And Exploration For This ManA few years ago, Travis Burke's grandmother bought a 1994 Dodge van. The van went unused for quite some time, so Burke decided that he'd put it to good use.

He spent five months and about $8,000 converting the vehicle into a livable, comfortable mobile home, and for the past 16 months, he's been traveling around North America on the most epic test drive of all time. Luckily for us, the aspiring photographer has documented the whole journey in an awesome photo series.

This is the van that started it all, seen here in Alberta, Canada.
"I really hope to inspire people to get out and explore their own backyards," Burke says. "You don't need to plan an elaborate vacation to wind up in a beautiful and unique landscape." That being said, he hopes to expand his journey outside of North America over the next year.
The vehicle was outfitted with solar panels, a refrigerator, a sink, and a fold-out bed.

She Leaves Water Balloons In The Snow And Creates Magic You’d NEVER Expect

She Leaves Water Balloons In The Snow And Creates Magic You’d NEVER ExpectIn this video, a woman freezes water balloons filled with food coloring to make beautifully colored frozen orbs. This just looked like a fun thing to do in the winter, so I thought I would share.

How to make it:

Add food coloring to empty balloons, then fill them with water.
Place outside in the snow (or in your freezer) until frozen.
Wait until the next morning. Then, use a pair of scissors to remove the balloon.


The end result looks like big, frozen marbles! It’s so cool!
