Sparkle #204: Spring has Sprung!

Hello beautiful people, are you ready for spring? I know I am! Today is the Spring Equinox, which marks the beginning of spring across the world. Today is one of the only two days in the year when the day and night are equal in length and perfectly in balance! Coincidentally, today is also the International Day of Happiness and the start of the Persian New Year. Which in my mind is kind of perfect, because how can one feel anything but happy on a balmy spring day in March? I am always on the lookout for special rituals that one can create to…

Sparkle #186: The Rainbow Mountains of China

Look at the above image carefully. This photograph of brightly colored mountains seems surreal, almost as if it were a painting. It seems like something I would draw in my art class with a bunch of bright colored crayons. But this picture is very real – these rainbow mountains actually exist! These mountains form the landscape of the Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park in China’s Gansu province. How did Mother Nature create this wonder? From what I understand as a layman, this is the result of several years of erosion and folding of layered rock and mineral crust. If you want to dive…

Sparkle #151: Nature Travel Inspiration

Winters are the perfect time to escape into the wilderness. The dense air and dark pines add a mysterious charm to forests, thus making them even more inviting during the cold weather. Imagine cuddling up with a cup of hot cocoa and your favorite book under a giant oak tree on a winter day – sounds like utter bliss! Sadly, I am several miles away from a forest, so I can only dream about these lovely winter walks. If like me, you are looking for some nature themed travel inspiration, then follow “Wintergirl” on Tumblr. She posts some amazing travel shots of forests, mountains and nature on a regular…
