Omo here...I keep learning from life's 'perfectly imperfect' situations. 👉🏾 We were reminded recently that our blessings may not always come in the shape and colour we expect...but that doesn't change their nature and purpose in our lives. 👉🏾 If we hold onto our rigid "this-is-the-only-way" views, we might miss the blessings standing right before us. 👉🏾 Anyone else feeling me on this?

Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now. ~Denis Waitley Living in the moment is a daily goal for me. I have to remind myself to savor the day and not worry about what is to come. The moment this photo was taken all I could think about was getting my breath back after climbing what felt like a million stairs. All I could do was take a deep breath and savor that I had made it! I hope today you are able to savor the small wins, the moments of joy and truly take a deep breath. #successquotes #quotesdaily #motivationalquote #quotesaboutlife #brno #visitcz #tbexostrava2018 #tbex #quotesandsayings #quotestags #quotestagram #gogetit #successcoach #motivationalquotes #mindsetiseverything #quotesforlife #youngentrepreneurs #quotesoflife #quotestoliveby #entrepreneurial #inspiringquotes #quotesforyou #solopreneur #dreambigorgohome #quotetoliveby #gogetter #quotefortheday

Happy 2019! We left our flat for the final time on the 22nd and have spent the holidays in London. We're headed to Hong Kong on Thursday for a bit and then on to New Zealand. I'm not sad to see the end of 2018--it was one of those transitional years for us and I found it emotionally exhausting. I'm looking forward to feeling at peace with our living arrangements and happy with my work again. Hopefully we'll even have some friends come visit us once we're settled. I'm turning 40 in a couple of months, too, and am having pangs of what am I doing with my life that will hopefully calm down as life does. My top nine posts of the year seem a proper reflection of 2018--family, stitching, Scotland love, and the start of #tbexostrava2018 which led to great new friendships. Here's to making 2019 an excellent year! . . . . . . . #albiongould #travelblogger #2018topnine #craftblogger #crossstitchlove #crossstitcher #crossstitchersofinstagram #scotland #highlandcows #hogwartsexpress #starwars #disneylandparis #pragueczechrepublic #ilovescotland #movingtonewzealand #exploringtheglobe #adventureawaits #adventureanywhere #searchwandercollect #instatravel #passportlife #passportready

Happy New Year. In 2018, I had an amazing year. The major highlight is that, It's the year I had my TV debut on my local station as a Travel Expert. Loved it. It's great to be recognized for your work so I was really thankful for the opportunity from @kprc2. Another highlight is that I also visited countless places for pleasure and work. This included speaking at two conferences compliments of @tbexevents. Thank you for these opportunities. I love to fly and meet new people. Thank you for your support in 2018. I appreciate it. A lot! I got to attend a friends wedding (photo) in Las Vegas and it was lovely. You have to pause to remember everyone and celebrate. I also did a few funerals as life happens and you have to pause for that too. Have an amazing 2019 and I'll continue to bring you joy from my travels as I continue to tour this fine world of ours. Happy 2019! #whereiskerwin

Since launching the HairCutHarry blog earlier this year to share more about our travels and the people we meet around the world, we decided to go to the #czechrepublic this summer to attend a #tbex conference for travel bloggers. Starting a blog has definitely been a big learning curve for us and it’s very different from video production and YouTube! So we came ready to learn all we could. It was great to be able to receive and give feedback, exchange ideas, and talk about the ins and outs of what we are doing with fellow content creators. Loved those conversations about workflow, editing, social media management, and just being able to share knowledge and experience. What we didn’t anticipate is that we would make a few friends like Guillermo @Decidilo who has an incredible audience for his live-streaming travels around the world! His viewers literally decide where he travels and what activities he tries. Guillermo previously worked in Argentina as a television sports presenter for over 20 years and gave me some valuable pro tips on being in front of the camera! I was even able to be a part of one of Guillermo’s live streams. It was my first time doing a live stream and I got to impress his viewers with the extent of my extremely limited Spanish lol 😂 A big thanks to Guillermo and everyone we met in 2018; we look forward to crossing paths with you all again ❤️ #friendship #travel #haircutharry #visitcz #travelblogger #decidilo #tbexostrava2018

What a year it’s been — from the Czech Republic and the Land of Stories to the Most Fun Small Town in America, we gathered, explored, learned, celebrated, and built cherished relationships with our ever-expanding travel tribe! We hope you had as much memory-and-merrymaking fun as we did. And we look forward to seeing you in 2019 at one of our TBEX destinations! #tbexostrava2018 #myflxtbex #travelblogger #contentcreator #foodblogger #adventureblogger #visitbillings #travelinspires #travelskills #haveskillswilltravel @visitcz @visit_ostrava @corningmuseum @flxwinecountry @montanastrailhead

**NEW BLOG POST** Before and after #tbexostrava2018, a few hiking and adventure bloggers like myself did various hikes around the Czech Republic. These trips were organized by Visit Czech Republic and various regional tourism boards. This led to me organizing a collaboration post which showcased some of the best hiking spots in the Czech Republic. The picture featured here was taken a group hike through the beautiful Bila Opava Valley! Read more about this hike and more by clicking the link in the bio.

Ostrava, Czech Republic, is a very unusual city. With a heavy industrial past, and lots of abandoned industrial buildings, they've decided to repurpose these structures rather than tear them down. I took this picture from a cafe on top of what used to be a blast furnace, 78 meters high. It's called Bolt Tower, partly as a play on the bolts holding the structure together, and partly to imply speed, as in Usain Bolt (whose signature graces the wall of the cafe). The round building below was an oil tank, but has been converted into a conference center. The #tbexostrava2018 conference I attended in July was held here. . #bolttower #ostrava #dolnioblastvitkovice #visitcz #repurposing #vintageindustrial #rachelsruminations

I didn't grow up adventurous. Not at all- in fact for many many years I was the fat kid (no Dad, I wasn't adorable) in my class who would always come last place in races. I was so bad at sports it was embarrassing. Growing up, I was a nerd and a bookworm. I'd ace my exams but I didn't do anything outdoorsy. No trace of adventure or an active lifestyle in my life, growing up in hot, sunny Dubai (where everyone stays indoors for a large part of the year). If you'd told me back then that someday I'd find such a strong love for hiking that my feet would clock so many miles, and my heart would be drawn to trails so much that I'd just go on my own, and that my eyes would see the views around the world that I've seen, I'd call you crazy. But life is strange and so much wilder than our imagination- this I have truly come to learn and believe. Never having done it didn't stop me from pushing myself, even when I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing. Sometimes I'm still not sure. There are times when I'm whacked into humility by the limitations of my city-bred body and insecurities and doubts and anxiety. Sometimes I'm still the last one up the mountain, or in this case this sandstone tower of Tisa in #bohemianswitzerland that my fellow bloggers just rushed up like superheroes even as I took my time, panting and stopping along the way. But the difference is I no longer worry about whether I'm faster than anyone else; I know I'm faster than I used to be, my legs are stronger than they used to be, and my spirit? It only shines brighter with optimism. And isn't that all that matters? #northernhikes #visitcz #tbex #tbexostrava2018

My Ongoing Series - Castles, Chateaux, and Churches of Czech Republic - (27/34) - #travel #travelure . Located in Kutna Hora, the Sedlec Ossuary is a small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints. The ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, whose bones have, in many cases, been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel. The ossuary is among the most visited tourist attractions of the Czech Republic - attracting over 200,000 visitors annually. It is listed in Atlas Obscura - a book not meant for travellers, but for explorers (according to its author). . . 👉 Please follow @imagergram and use #imagergram for your travel photos.

Timelapsing the sunset from the peak of the Beskydy Mountains in the Czech Republic known as Lysá hora . We hiked up 2 hours to get here and it gave us a glimpse of just how much the Czechs love their outdoors. We got a chance to stay here overnight too where their new log cabin/rest station/cafeteria had a bowling alley built into the basement. Crazy .

In search of the nearest ice cream shop 🍦🍦🍦❤️ :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Whenever I told people I was going to the Czech Republic their first response was “I’ll see you in Prague!” Or “so you’re going to Prague?” I hesitated because, actually, I wasn’t. I was kind of embarrassed that I wasn’t going to the most popular city in the Czech Republic. I could see the look of puzzlement on everyone’s face when I said no, like all of the Czech Republic only consisted of Prague. For example, this is in Tabor. Same beautiful architecture that you might find in Prague, but on a smaller scale with less chaos and outside visitors. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: It also has a really great ice cream place. And that’s all that really matters. 😜

The view from the round nest like tower of #litomerice town hall was epic. And if anyone ever wanted to render it in needlepoint.... I couldn’t help but admire the effect when shooting thru this window screen 😂 Sometimes I love how obstructions make us focus on what’s really important - the colors and geometry, and free us from the finer details, such as what kind of cars are parked below. It also frees the imagination. Perhaps I should carry a scrap or screening everywhere and make the world my craft? #visitcz #visitczechrepublic #tbexostrava2018 #northernbohemia #artisticphotography #crossstich #throughmylens #outsidemywindow #beautifulview #goplaces #supernaturaltravel @visitcz

"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery." Mark Van Doren Located inside the Dolní Vítkovice industrial complex in Ostrava is the modern Svět techniky Science Museum, where visitors can learn about the world and society in a fun and interactive way. Svět technicky's Science and Technology Center is divided into the Children's World, World of Civilization, World of Science and Discoveries and the World of Nature. Visitors big and small can learn about everything in entertaining ways or through 3D movies. Here, visitors can also learn how the human body works and how storms and rainbows are formed. You can also travel through time to the world of mammoth hunters. Svět techniky's Small World of Technology is built alongside the Science and Technology Center, revealing the mysteries of inventions. It begins with the steam engine, which launched other significant technical discoveries. Kids can learn about things, such as how raw iron is made into steel. Another area introduces inventions by Jules Verne to discoverers. The complex housing the Science and Technology Center and the Small World of Technology is one of the most popular places in Ostrava. It has become a favourite spot for tourists and class trips. Those who want to learn more about interesting technical facts can continue to Landek Park, home of the largest mining museum in the country.

“I love to walk a city, whether I’ve been there once or a hundred time before. It’s amazing what sort of inspiration you’ll find when you steal a second glance.” ~ Erin Hiemstra Ostrava’s history reaches back to the 13th century when it was mentioned as part of the “Amber Road” – a trade route used by medieval merchants to transport goods between the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean. However, it wasn’t until the 18th century and the discovery of coal here that this city became an important industrial centre in Europe. In the 90s coal mining came to an end but Ostrava still benefits from this past, boasting museums and related heritage. Michal Mine, for instance, was declared a National Cultural Landmark in 1995, and today is a museum that provides tourists with a chance to see all of the above-ground mining areas and coal faces. For a full experience there is even a restaurant where people can order traditional meals that coal miners used to eat. Near the city you can also find the Ema Slag Heap. It looks like an ordinary hill, but in fact it a man-made pile of waste material from mining built up a hundred years ago. The material Ema’s built from actually still burns on the inside, since it reignited in the 60’s, with temperatures rising up to 1000°C! That’s why people sometimes call it the volcano of Ostrava. The hill continues to steam even to this day, when little white clouds emanate from the surface. There’s no health risk to breathe the air around, but it’s not recommended to spend the night there. The hill is almost entirely covered with grass and trees, even in winter, especially with species that like warmer temperatures. The views from there is also amazing, however for an even more spectacular views visit the lookout tower of the New city Hall which is 73m tall. On a clear day, you can see as far as to Poland, or even Slovakia! Check out the city of Ostrava in our Youtube video that will be live tomorrow!

“If I were to arrive at a foreign country like Czech Republic, I don't have to speak Czech to understand the feeling of the local sensations through architecture. That is a kind of communication that no language can perform.” Jimenez Lai Throughout the year Ostrava is mainly a student dominated city as it is home to a few of the most renowned universities in the country. However, during the summer months when many dorms are empty the city transforms into a touristy place with many events going on. One of the reasons we visited Ostrava this summer was TBEX, the biggest travel blogger conference, that chose this city as its European venue. Travel bloggers from all over the world flocked there for a couple of days and Chantal was able to meet them all. Another event that brings many tourists to this city is the Colours of Ostrava. A festival known to many European music fans since it is one of the biggest multi-genre festivals in Europe and every year it gathers more that 45,000 visitors. It’s been held every summer in Ostrava since 2002. The lineup is always full of household names, with the likes of alt-J, Jamiroquai, Moderat, Tame Impala, Underworld and Caribou having joined in the festivities in the last few years. If you are more into traditional sightseeing one thing you shouldn’t miss is the Silesian Ostrava Castle, which is within a walking distance from the city center. It was built near the river shore in the 13th century. If you pay the entrance fee, you can look forward to exploring the castle grounds, such as its courtyard, a fortress and a tower.

“Down through the centuries, the Czech Republic has been a place of cultural exchange.” Pope Benedict XVI Ostrava is the 3rd biggest city in the Czech Republic and the government center of the Moravian-Silesian Region. The town is located in the north-east part of the country and it is home to more than 300,000 people. The city was founded in 1267 but in the Second World War, Ostrava was bombarded quite heavily. The after-war reconstruction created a number of beautiful and architecturally supreme buildings that were all different in style and functionality. If you ever have a chance to visit this beautiful city you will notice that street art is nearly everywhere! We really loved this about Ostrava. In the city center there’s a large mural on a disheveled building. It’s called the Madonna “Ostravica” and it’s the largest street art piece in the Czech Republic. It was created by the famous American street artist Nils Westergard in 2016 over a weekend. He did this in order to help the new owners of a building in a dismal shape, which used to house a shopping center, but is now being transformed into a center for culture.

My Ongoing Series - Castles, Chateaux, and Churches of Czech Republic - (10/34) - #travel #travelure . As I mentioned yesterday, Mělník Castle houses a winery! Their grapes are grown in their own vineyards. The house brand is, well, Mělník. The annual produce in the winery is a modest 200,000 bottles. But the wine produced here is premium! In the image: Sommelier presents one of their wines for tasting. . . 👉 Please follow @imagergram and use #imagergram for your travel photos.

My Ongoing Series - Castles, Chateaux, and Churches of Czech Republic - (9/34) - #travel #travelure . Once inside Mělník Castle, the quadrangle leaves you baffled which way you need to head! The castle complex houses a souvenir shop, a huge restaurant, a store selling snacks and drinks, and a full-fledged winery (wait for tomorrow's image for a close look at that)! . . 👉 Please follow @imagergram and use #imagergram for your travel photos.

Třeboň, Czech Republic is a pretty little town in South Bohemia #visitcz #jiznicechy #tbexostrava2018

I wouldn't recommend visiting abandoned places alone. This was the only building where the ceilings weren't caved in but this roof looked like it might at any moment. Part of the homeless tour I went on with @pragulic.cz Have you seen my video for it?

Wine cellars in South Moravia, Czech Republic. I know, Czechia is best known for its beers but they make pretty nice wines, too. I will tell more in blog soon, I promise! #visitcz #southmoravia #petrov . . . #visitczechrepublic #winecellar #tbexostrava2018 #mypassion #wine #travels #allthealleys #passionpassport #mondolöytö #igers_europe #hiddengem #offthebeatenpath #roadlesstravelled

At the central town square (Masarykovo Náměstí) in Ostrava. I’m starting to work on posts from my time in the Czech Republic & feeling a bit nostalgic #tbexostrava2018 #visitcz #visitostrava
