If I ever go to Sweden, I’ll be sure to keep quiet and keep away from people. Found on r/AskReddit.

Denmark: Do not stand on or walk on our bike lanes. You’ll be yelled at like never before or possibly be run over by an angry cyclist.

2. LucubrateIsh

Don’t tip in Japan.

Don’t do it.

If you try, whoever you attempted to tip is likely going to be a little upset. You are pretty much calling them unprofessional because you think they need that extra help or something.

3. blissfully_happy

It’s not country based, but if you come visit Alaska, for the love of all that is holy, DON’T WALK ON THE MUDFLATS OUTSIDE OF ANCHORAGE.

It is quicksand and you will get stuck, then the tide will come in and you will die. Seriously, it happens to one…

It’s been a good beauty day.

Other than going totally Middle-Eastern (harem pants, persian kimono, gold plated jewelry, lots of rings), I really like my makeup look for the day!

Also, high pony tails are BOMB.

When life was exotic…

Model Nadja Bender poses for Akrans in ornate brocades and patterns styled by Sissy Vian. Juxtaposed between urban landscapes and an Asian decor, a platinum blonde Nadja delights in the designs of Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Valentino amongst many others.

Beautiful photos

So, I decided to make a series of photos of Paris in black and white. Some of the photos have already been used  in color on Creative Mind and some are shown for the very first time. I recently learned something very useful that I would like to share with you. If the color doesn’t add anything to your image, go black and white. Quite simple and obvious right? But it changed my workflow entirely.

Montana Adventure 2012

Two summers ago, I spent 9 days with a group of rambunctious teenagers backpacking through Yellowstone National Park. This trip was remarkable. It truly sparked my urge for adventure, backpacking, hiking, and camping in nature.


Breakfasts consisted of packing lunch and foot pumped clean water.


Backpacking was our speciality. Over the course of 9 days, we trekked over 50 miles. My favorite, however was Trout Lake. It was breeding time for the Trout, so we could see all the fish laying their eggs up stream.

In addition, we tracked Horseshoe Hare pellets to assay the Lynx population. We also found a wolverine trap along the way. Later we scoured an area of two square miles to tag trees depending on if they were infected with beetles and/or disease. At our camp in the Centennial Valley, we had a small stream going through our plot of land, which we dunk our feet in to discover multiple fish and even a water snake! One morning, we woke up at 3:30 am to watch the wolves…We even had our own wolf expert! Later, we cut down invasive trees (so counter-intuitive, I know). And finally, we explored the hundreds of geysers at Geyser National Park.

It was an adventure like no other.
