Victoria Memorial . . Represents the weight the British had on India. While oppressing us on one side they chose to build memorials about their Queen (1903) after the death of Queen Victoria . . The memorial is a must visit for a History buff, to capture the essence of the East India Company (Calcutta Gallery) . The 12 paintings representing QV's life on the dome are spectacular . . The garden is equally amazing, with lush greenery on all sides (a massive estate) . #kolkata #calcutta #bengal #british #independence #westbengal #photooftheday #photo #photographer #photography #photographers_of_india #oneplus6t #oneplus #travelling #travelphotography #traveldiaries #travel #victoria #monarchy #eastindiacompany #history #struggle #opulence

Kemanapun arah kita pergi, pasti kita telah mempertimbangkan sematang mungkin. . Semoga Allah selalu ada dalam setiap pertimbangan kita. . Menjauh dari 1 arah menuju arah lain. Itu pasti. . Dalam setiap arah, semoga untuk menuju kepada-Mu lebih dekat, dekat dan dekat lagi. . Tak lupa, bergerombol dengan orang-orang dengan arah yang sama. . Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang beriman, orang-orang yang berhijrah dan berjihad di jalan Allah, mereka itu mengharapkan rahmat Allah, dan Allah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang. (Al-Baqarah: 218) . #motrettotafakur #arah #thesign #team #titiknol #jogja #lebaran #rihlah #albaqarah #istiqomah #history #future #architecture #landscapephotography #epic

Cher Papa, nous n'avons pas souvent l'occasion de nous voir, ce que je regrette. C'est pourquoi je profite de la fête des pères pour t'écrire quelques mots. On n'est emportés par le courant de la vie quotidienne et on n'oublie parfois de se poser et de discuter. On dit souvent que les relations entre une fille et son Papa sont souvent privilégiés. Je pense que c'est vrai, en tout cas pour ma part. Et sache que je ne pouvais pas avoir de meilleur Père que toi. Ta fille qui t'aime et qui te souhaite une bonne fête des Pères. ❤️💕 #daddy #lovedad #fetedesperes #padre #mylove #l4l #truelove #likelike #bresil #afrique #latinos #lovehe #myheart #amour #forever #blackandwhitephotography #history #memory #pic #❤️

I finished this miniseries. Just incredible. This happened 9 days after my Sister @lindzbshaw was born. Take-a-ways: 1- Standing up for what you know is always good even if you don’t live long enough to see that good. 2- The truth WILL ALWAYS come out 3- It is sad how people were treated 4- strength comes from those who are willing to give. #brave #alive #time #stength #chernobyl #history #hbo @hbo #well #done #lessons #1986 #ussr #chernobylhbo #bravery #minors #scientist #smart #school #truth #TruthWillSetYouFree #WillingToGiveTheirLives #government #governmentcorruption #shocking #lies #change #ChangeHistory #fake #numbers #false

The Cenote amazing! I didn't swim as I got a little claustrophobic with masses of people in the water. I'll jump in on my next visit to the beautiful #mexico. So as I mentioned in my story, I opted for some rocking in the hammock under the trees 😎This trip I got to see one of the 7 wonders of the world, that being Chichén Itzá! Mind blowing experience! Highly recommend 🙏 . . . . #mexico #cancun #chitchenitza #7wondersoftheworld 🌎 #hammock #shade #tan #relax #tranquila #mexicano #mayan #history #adventure #mustsee

Some photos from this last week. I met and learned from some of the most incredible people in the world. People came from all over, mostly Canada, USA, UK and Europe to participate and teach at the Global Bushcraft Symposium of 2019! Lars Falt, Mors Kochanski, Dave Wescott, David Holladay, Les Stroud, Tom Luytens, Andre Bourbeau, Patrick McGlinchey, Jose Amoedo, Lisa Fenton, Nicole Apelian, Paul Kirtley and Julie Seton to name a few of the more famous people. It was one of the best weeks of my life! Learned so much and they announced that they will continue the event in 2 more years in the UK. #globalbushcraftsymposium #2019 #bushcraft #survival #survivorman #castaway #alone #history #respectyourelders #larrydeanolsen #legacy #remember #nature

Сегодня меня осенило! Или как модно говорить, пришел инсайт. Мне часто в жизни было сложно сказать «нет» на просьбы, требования. Я не позволяла себе говорить, делать и иногда даже чувствовать то, что мне хотелось. А все почему? Потому что я осуждала людей и боялась осуждения со стороны. Я не принимала отказов и была уверена, что другие тоже не примут отказы. Я осуждала подруг за чувства, говоря, что это слабость. И себе не позволяла, запихивая эти чувства поглубже в подсознание. Ну совсем не здоровая картина ведь! Я бы хотела сказать, что сейчас вдруг все поменялось, волшебным образом. Но нет. Это лишь осознание. А поменять что-либо можно лишь через труд и с условием, что эти перемены необходимы. #dubai #abudhabi #uae #almosttravelblogger #travel #trip #vacation #monaco #nice #cannes #holidays #history #story #cannes #ramadan #ramadankareem #mydubai #iftar #reviews #saadyat #saadiyatisland #pakhyatt #эмираты #абудаби #отзывы #отели #luxury #luxurycollection #cottoncandy #maldives #challenge

Bangunan keraton yang menggunakan bahan bata campuran pasir dan kapur sebagai bahan dasarnya menjadi saksi bagaimana kehebatan Kerajaan Banten pada abad 17. Walaupun hanya berupa reruntuhan, keraton yang disebut juga Benteng Surosowan ini masih memiliki beberapa sisa ruang yang dapat dilihat. Seperti Gerbang di bagian utara, serta kolam dan tempat beristirahat yang bernama Bale Kambang Rara danok. Bentuknya segi empat dengan panjang 30 meter dan lebar 13 meter membuat kolam ini menjadi tempat yang pas untuk beristirahat bagi putri-putri sultan. Luas benteng bersejarah yang mencapai 4 hektar ini membuat pemerintah Provinsi Banten menetapkan reruntuhan ini sebagai cagar budaya yang dilindungi dan kaya akan sejarah Banten. Karenanya banyak pengunjung yang sering datang hanya untuk memlihat dan sedikit membayangkan bagaimana kejayaan Kerajaan Banten lewat reruntuhan Keraton Surosowan . . . #keratonsurosowan #keraton #bantenlama #visitbanten #visitindonesia #bangunansejarah #travel #traveling #history #place #pictureoftheday #picture #photography #photo #instagram #instapic #instagood #indonesia #haveagoodday

In celebration of the remaining few days of school. We thought we’d highlight some of our favorite WPS buildings! English High School - Irving Street Romanesque Revival Architects: Barker & Nourse 1891-1892 This building served as the English High School (the city’s second high school at the time) until 1914, when the school was reorganized as the High School of Commerce. This is when Classical High School (previously located at the corner of Maple and Walnut) moves into this building. The new High School of Commerce moved into the former Classical High building. This building remained a high school until 1966 and now serves as an administration building for WPS. #worcester #school #summer #architecture #history #romanesquerevival

June is Indegenous History Month. As an act of reconciliation, I decided to visit Mohawk Institute. This was an Indian Residential School active from 1831-1970. The Indian Act was enacted in 1876 and made it mandatory for Indegenous People to send their children to residential schools. More than 150,000 First Nation, Metis, and Inuit children attended residential schools. Being at this site gave me shivers and I can only imagine the horrors these children went through. #IndegenousPeople #IndegenousHistory #IndegenousHistoryMonth #School #ResidentialSchool #SadHistory #History #OPPBeTheBridge #MohawkInstitute

Hiroshima is a sombre reminder of what suffering we humans are capable on inflicting on each other. An estimated 140,000 people died either immediately or as a result of the radiation. Not to mention the countless survivors who suffered horrible wounds, years of illness, and the loss of loved ones and their entire city. These weapons have no place in this world. #nomorehiroshimas . 1. Hiroshima Atom Bomb Dome, over which the bomb was dropped, and which was preserved in its original state (one of the few buildings this close to the explosion that weren't completely leveled) to serve as a stark reminder of the events of 6 August 1945. 2. Children's Peace Memorial dedicated to the children who fell victim to the bomb and its aftereffects. . #hiroshima #peace #history #japan

I just finished A Night Divided, by @nielsenwriter — book #7 of my #bookgoal for the year. Swipe left to read my review, but let me just say that I LOVED it. Knowing the topics of history surrounding the Berlin Wall, but wanting my kids to give this a listen/read as part of our home school curriculum next year, I listened first. I’m SO glad I did. Such an amazing story of courage and beautifully written. It’s definitely going to be included in our history studies next year. #homeschool #homeschoolmama #homeschoolcurriculum #homeschoolfamily #berlinwall #middlegradebooks #historicalfiction #tbr #amreading #history #homeschoolreading #novel #reading
