I landed to Dublin around 1PM without luggage that was stuck somewhere on CDG, but the day was sunny and I felt so positively excited that nothing could ruin my mood. On the contrary, it was great to learn … More I’ll Follow My Heart to Ireland

The road in Amargosa Valley cuts the desert in a straight line. Misty mountains wriggle in the far distance and the yellowish valley, sprinkled with scarce plants, outspreads to the infinity.
