”We will hold it as a dream till it appear itself.” - William Shakespeare
Run! Don’t walk. Get thee to @publictheaterny’s “Much Ado About Nothing” at Shakespeare in the Park in @centralparknyc! The all African-American cast was tremendous and worked hard to make one of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy so enjoyable with a modern twist. You will want to sing and dance in celebration with them! This production will win awards! 🏆
I was exhausted and had almost given up. It was my first solo trip and I had zero knowledge about the mountains and the challenges that comes with high altitude. It was around 2PM when the truck that I was in reached Gramphu. I got down, had tea at the little dhaba out there and against everyone’s advice decided to walk further towards Spiti.
“Alag he duniya hai waha!” the old man in the bus had told me. (It is a completely different world out there)
His words kept ringing in my head.
It had started to get dark, the water in my bottle was almost over, my legs were hurting, I was out of energy and there was yet no sight of life as far as my eyes could see. I looked around and realised how everything was so massive and beautiful on a scale that I had never seen before. Funnily, I had made my peace and told myself that it’s not a bad place to die after all. And with that I sat down, gulped the last few sip of water and waited.
Soon I saw an Alto approaching and with that life surged back in my already exhausted body. It was Tenzing who was going to his dhaba in Dhorni and he agreed to give me a lift. He helped me pitch my tent next to his dhaba, gave me food, and probably taught me the most important thing about high altitude - AMS (Accute Mountain Sickness) which I did experience two days later.
In other words, he saved my life!
In photo: That’s Tenzing’s dhaba. I took this picture the next morning. It was the 23rd of July, 2016. If you are visiting Spiti from Manali side do stop by. His dhaba is the first one that you’ll come across once you leave Gramphu.

I went to a training course on resilience this week, which reminded us to fit into our busy lives what makes us happy and reduces our stress, as much as we can. For me (as Stories followers probably know) that's being outside, preferably at the beach. I made time for a run and a walk in the sunshine this weekend and I'm definitely feeling better for it! What recharges you? #twofeetinauckland

If you can be comfortable being uncomfortable, you'll be prepared to handle whatever situation comes along in your own life. Discomfort is a catalyst for growth. It forces you to change, stretch, adapt. The transition will be uncomfortable and scary, but that’s the nature of the beast. 👊
Did you know that Armenian merchants were among the first people who introduced Europeans with coffee and coffee shops. Not surprisingly, among them, I can mention the very first coffee houses in Vienna and Paris (late 17th century), opened by Armenian Hovhannes Astvatsatour (more known as Johannes Diodato). Also, some people might think that Armenian coffee is the same as Turkish or Greek coffee, but they are quite different.
PS. Keep in mind, in Armenia, you will never find “Turkish coffee” on the menu and it has to do with the sad history..
#Chinstand Pose / #Scorpion Pose - variation with yoga blocks
These are advanced yoga poses where you are hanging upside down, relying on your core and body strength, while balancing on your arms and chin. Both poses teach you how to build more body strength and trust your body so that other yoga postures such as handstand or more complicated arm balances aren’t as scary. A proper warm up here is a must!
❗️Warning: if you have neck and back injuries, recent surgeries, if you are new to yoga and/or do not have a required body strength yet, please do NOT practice this pose variation on your own - without a supervision of a qualified yoga instructor.❗️
