Day 644 - The icing on the cake
Entering the Wakhan valley. It is so hostile. Sand, rocks, dust, not a single sign of life.
And then comes the river. It works as the official border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan. Quiet at first, rough after. We followed that river & natural border for a few days, enjoying the view of the Afghani side.
Cherry on the cake is the stunning range of mountains we saw right before the village of Langar. With so many layers, shapes, textures & colors. Truly breathtaking.
It’s so hot & dry at the base but there is glaciers and snow on top of them. The combination is just perfect.
Days 4 and 5. It's #PARASAILING time! Most people that know me already know that I'm afraid of #heights and the deep end of the water. Well parasailing offered both! Lol Needless to say I was scared! But the #extrovert in me has a bigger #FearOfMissingOut. So I did it with Mandy! We were the very first to go. OF COURSE! And the two instructors kept making jokes about us being Guinea pigs. #NotTodaySatan
So we were launched! Mandy wanted to swing on the parachute. I said "Girl I'm holding on for dear life. Ain't nobody swinging!" Then they started playing with us by making us go up and down. I'm pretty sure my highest #falsetto came out at that moment.
Then we finally made it back to the boat. I was smiling, proud of myself. And I wanted to do it again! Lol #GoodTimes Btw I've realized that 10 years ago, I was posting a picture of myself #skydiving. Now it's parasailing. #LivingMyBestLife#10YearChallenge
The next day, we made our way to the #DolePlantation! It was awesome! Mandy had the brilliant idea to embark upon the #PineappleExpressTrain Tour. We were among families with young kids but it was probably where we learned the most! Lol We even learned how to choose and cut a pineapple properly. #TheMoreYouKnow
We ended the visit with the traditional jump! I say "we" because Mandy was such a good sport. Poor gal needs to travel back to all her previous adventures to the jump there. Lol #NotReally
We ended the day with a nice drive along the #NorthShoreOahu. The #view was #breathtaking and the violence of the sea on the rocks showed #nature at its purest element. #Beautiful.

Nu-mi place frigul și dau oricând iarna pe vară. Totuși, cred că iernile cu zăpadă, în anumite locuri, au ceva magic, chiar și după sărbători. 🗻❄️
