The Hole in the Wall is one of the most interesting landmarks of the Wild Coast. The cliff consists of dark-blue shales, mudstone and sandstones and dating back some 260 million years. The “hole” was created over millions of years by erosion of the buffeting waves and the flow of the river, which eroded the softer rocks underneath the dolerite to form an arch. The same processes also eventually separated the cliff from the mainland. It stands before the mouth of the Mpako River and is the source of many legends. In the Xhosa language, this area is called esiKhaleni, which means ‘the place of sound’. Some say it’s because, under certain conditions, the waves slap the rocks with a resounding cracking sound, while it roars during storms. Others say it refers to a Xhosa legend involving a young maiden who fell in love with one of the mythical ‘sea people’. Such was the love of this sea person for the maiden that he and his people rammed a hole in the side of a lagoon wall with the help of a huge fish so they could reach her; she was never heard from again. In this version, it’s the voices and singing of the sea people that give the name esiKhaleni. ———————————————————————— - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #mountain #mountains #mountain_world #mountainside #mountaineering #mountaineer #mountainphotography #mountainlover #mountainstories #mountainlovers #mountainvibes #igersmountains #landscapephotography #landscape_love #landscape_capture #landscape_lover #landscape_captures #naturephotography #hikingworldwide #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #nature_photo #nature_good #nature_seekers #outdoors #hikingtheglobe #hiking_my_life #outdoorliving #outdoorphotography #theearthoutdoors

What an interesting city! Where the very French looking architecture of the old town is followed by the Queen Victoria looking at a bunch of very glassy skyscrapers. Where a gigantic 2.7 km long steel bridge impresses more than the Eiffel tower. Where there’s nothing wrong about having a dandelion field right in the middle of the city. Where the weather keeps you entertained by changing every 10 min. Where when you’re asked if you like poutine, you should think of french fries with cheese rather than the Russian president. Where the shiny modern is just a few steps away from the nostalgically beautiful past. Montreal. #montreal #mountroyal #montrealmoments
It’s Mossy Rock Monday! Look at this gorgeous specimen. #mossyrockfanclub
Mystical morning in the woods. The sunrays peaking through the leaves and melting snow created a very special atmosphere on the trail.

Pst, do you want to hear a little Alentejo secret? The Barragem de Santa Clara is very, very beautiful. There's a wonderful trail that leads you around part of the lake and through the Alentejo countryside. While all tourists are walking the coastal trails, you can enjoy the silence and pure nature on this less known hiking path. 🐝🌱🌾 . . . #amar_alentejo #alentejo #visitalentejo #alentejolitoral #odemira #lake #natureza #nature_addict #naturewalks #hiking #portugal #visitportugal #europetravel #traveleurope #rotavicentina #walkingtour #hikingworldwide #hikinglove #nature_lovers #natureheals #passeios #naturezaperfeita #naturewalk #portugal_vacations #turismodeportugal #portugaltourism #ilovealentejo

There seems to be a widely shared childhood memory - of lying in fields of grass, on blankets in city parks or on a beach oceanside watching as the clouds float by. With every passing moment recognizable shapes appear, morph and, in the same breath, vanish forever. I like to think that this is our first lesson in impermanence. The state of Texas, narwal or anatomically questionable bunny that our minds and other nature build together will not last forever. We understand that and call out to our loved ones to appreciate these fleeting moments before they are gone forever. As we grow, this lesson prevails but oftentimes the sentiment is lost, we work hard though good times, rush to the finish line without appreciating the journey failing to remember that these perfect moments are finite. In the hard times we get caught, stuck in ruts of negative self talk or maybe the crux of your hike takes seemingly forever as you lay down on the knife edge and cry your eyes out. As all things that have come before, these too shall pass. Life is finite, the good moments are gone too fast - appreciate them, the tough times are seemingly endless - learn from them. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Some photos, from what feels like a lifetime ago, one of my favourite days in the mountains. Eating snacks with great friends and watching the clouds meander through the valley revealing a new perspective of an over-photographed lake. #hikingaddict #hikingworldwide #outdoorslife #outdoorculture #ilovehiking #hikingadventures #hikingwithfriends #getoutandhike #lovehiking #hiking_lifestyle
