Lolark Shashthi is a festival dedicated to Surya, the Sun God, celebrated near the Tulsi Ghat in Varanasi. It falls during the Monsoon Season, on the sixth day of the bright half of the month of Bhadrapada usually in September. Thousands of female devotees take a holy dip in the ancient stepwell of Lolark Kund. Steps lead down to the water from three sides, while on the fourth, the kund is elongated and arched, pointing in the direction of the rising sun.⠀ ⠀ Childless couples from Varanasi and its neighbouring villages perform this religious ritual as a prayer to Lord Lolark Aditya that they may be blessed with a male child. Once the child is born they return to give thanks. Devotees leave their clothes and some fruit or vegetable, from which they abstain thereafter. Some devotees also throw gold jewellery into the pond, which may later be retrieved and distributed among the mahant and Brahmins in order to finance the event and its clean-up afterwards.⠀ ⠀ As thousands gather the night before to bathe at sunrise, a colourful make-shift bazaar mushrooms around the kund and families cook their simple dinners on open camp fires.⠀ ⠀ Captured by very talented @Rajesh4films ⠀ ⠀ Do you have a piece of Kashi in your feed? share it with us by tagging #VaranasiGuru @varanasiguru ⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ #varanasi #hinduism #ghats #travelrealindia #desidiaries #indiaphotography #india_everyday #planetearth #banaras #passionpassport #theglobalwanderer #earthoutdoors #earthpics #discoverearth #natgeotravel #bbctravel #visualsofearth #earth_shotz #beautifuldestinations #tourtheplanet #destinationearth #earthoutdoors #earthofficial #incredibleindia #korea #uttarpradesh #india

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | Frost on the trees at Kelland Pond just south of Twizel, New Zealand on the south island. While driving up to Aoraki (Mt. Cook) I saw these ghost trees on the side of the road and stopped to check them out. Upon realizing there was a frozen pond and I was inside a low lying cloud I pulled out the camera and spent an hour or so photographing the amazingly moody landscape. . .

I’m in Mozambique! After some really sad news the day before I left, I haven’t felt like sharing much on social media - but for the past 9 days I’ve been out in Maputo for some conferences and a meeting we organised to discuss tropical cyclone forecasting and response with directors and representatives from the Mozambique national agencies for disaster management, meteorology, hydrology & the Red Cross and University here! . These photos were taken on our field trip to the Limpopo River last week - in 2013 the river flooded to 13m after a cyclone hit, and the nearby town of Chokwe was under 3m of water . . . . . . #mozambique #maputo #limpopo #river #travel #africa #visitafrica #travelingscientist #postdoclife #scicomm #science #scienceiscool #scientist #womeninscience #womeninstem #meteoeology #cyclone #tropics #tropical #wildlife #nature #dam #meteorologist #weather #adventure #explore #exploremore #destinationearth

Don‘t let the rain take your happiness! 😜🇰🇷 Today, the rain did not stop me from having a good time in South Korea‘s capital. In fact, the weather came in quite handy for some much needed shopping for technology, asian fashion and stationery. 😍 To be honest, I‘m quite glad my suitcase was only half full when coming to Korea. 😂🛍 Do you love to go shopping on a rainy day as well or what is your favourite bad weather program? 😊 ➖ Oh, and can we appreciate how not a single person in the subway cared about this little „photo shooting“? 😂 [unbezahlte Werbung | Markierungen] . . . #travelling #blogger_at #blogger_de #fun #asia #seoul #enjoylife #travelblogger #travel #southkorea #metro #subway #traveltagged #korea #wanderlust #solotravel #destinationearth #alpsandabroad #beautiful #eastasia #southeastasia #instatravel #seoulmetro #trip #photooftheday #qualitytime #travelgram #tourist #womantravel #seoulsubway

Trying to spend as much time as we can back by the Bali beaches 😍These viewpoints are such a cool way to check out the bright blue water. Bali has such a diverse landscape 🌿 In the short time we've been back we've explored black sand beaches, rice fields, white sand beaches and waterfalls 💕But there's still so much more to be seen! - - - - - #wearetravelgirls #discoverearth #damestravel #femaletravelblogger #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #wanderlust #travelblogger #tropical #balangan #bali #balicili #balilife #balilivin #balidaily #speechlessplaces #backpackerstory #travelgoals #beach 📷: @lolahubner __________________________ 🔥🌴Click Profile Bio Link to Sign Up for My Next Free Masterclass On How I Get Paid to Travel Full Time Using Instagram 🔥🌴

If you caught out last post you will know we are reintroducing We Are Travel Girls - say hi to our founders!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Hi, I am Becky, one of the founders of We Are Travel Girls!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I am originally from England, my parents are English and Dutch - hence my surname and I currently have no home base so I am travelling through Europe for the summer! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I studied Business & Economics at university, went on to work in private banking advising clients on their investments, then I quit my job when I met my now-husband so that we could travel together to South America for six months! (Side note, we had only just met and spent one week together before that, which shows sometimes taking risks works out!)⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Travelling was always a huge passion of mine, so creating a travel company that could combine my love of the world with my business background made sense. Since starting WATG, I have also discovered I love mentoring and teaching so I launched my own blog that gives more entrepreneurial, business and blogging advice BeckyvanDijk.com and an online blogging course @TheBloggerCourse ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Here's a few fun facts about me:⁠⠀ - Favourite Countries: India, New Zealand and Montenegro⁠⠀ - Favourite Food: Indian Curry and popcorn (not together!)⁠⠀ - Biggest Travel Fail: Creating a travel company when I have a severe fear of flying ⁠⠀ - Biggest Travel Accomplishment: Packing for six months in a carry-on!⁠⠀ - Places I love that I still never see anyone go to: The Perhentian Islands in Malaysia and Phonsavan in Laos (read about it, it's not a fun place to visit but its an important part of recent history)⁠⠀ - Obsessions: Cats, Great White Sharks, being organised and tidy⁠⠀ - Favourite Movie: Labyrinth ⁠⠀ - What I Want To Be When I Grow Up: A better version of myself! ⁠(or Sarah in the Labyrinth)⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ You can follow me @BeckyvanDijk if you want to see the back of my head every day! Occasionally I face the camera I promise!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #wearetravelgirls #travelgirls #travelcommunity #femaletravelcommunity #travel @wearetravelgirls @travelbudda1 #traveltips #wanderluster #wanderlusters #placestogo #earthporn #destinationearth #exploringglobe #traveladventures #travelworld #roamnati

„...The wordless language of look and touch, The knowing, Each giving and each taking, These are not flowers that fade, Nor trees that fall and crumble, Nor are the stone, For even stone cannot the wind and rain withstand And mighty mountain peaks in time reduce to sand. What we were, we are. What we had, we have...“ Nicholas Evans • • #moodygrams #earthpix #destinationearth #earth #wonderful_places #liveauthentic #instagood #niedersachsen #meinniedersachsen #wolfenbüttel #harzregion #sunset #sunsetlovers #landscape #landscapephotography #skyporn #naturelovers #natureporn #romantik #visitgermany #eyecandy_collective #moody_arts #moody_tones #fatalframes #deutschlandkarte #toneception #summertime #lifeisbeautiful #love

🇫🇷 The finale in Paris • I've highlighted my travels across Europe this past month, but there's another journey I'm undertaking, and the primary reason I was in Europe to begin with: I was in Paris for school.📚 (MSc candidate at HEC Paris, with residencies & electives. Themes: creativity & innovation, socially-inclusive business models, digital economies. And I still work full-time as multimedia designer & front-end developer in Vancouver. 🇨🇦) ⁣ ⁣ No, it's not as glamourous as it sounds. It's haarrrrd work, and the 1.5-hour train commutes between Paris and Versailles-Chantiers / Jouy-en-Josas were not the highlights of my day. There was that late night when I threw a glass across the room in that tiny apartment, because I was mad and exhausted but had to focus and study. I also ate too many macarons.🍭 (Does that count as suffering?) And I hauled a humongous luggage from train to train across Europe, trying to protect NOT the clothes, but the precious computers and books I had locked & hidden somewhere. ⁣ ⁣ But, I chose this life. Bitching about train commutes in Europe is a privilege. The earth is in crisis, vulnerable people are being displaced, there's hunger & strife everywhere, animal & plant species are diminishing at a rapid rate...⁣ ⁣ And yet here I am, young and healthy, weaving the best parts of my life together. With struggles, for sure, but shielded from the worst global shit so far, and with some capacity to (re-)imagine and impact the future in front of me. ⁣ ⁣ And so I keep going even when I question WTF I just got myself into. 80% of the time I feel insane. ⁣ ⁣ The journey continues. ✨ ⁣ ⁣
