The story behind the building that stands 2nd largest in the world (1st being The Pentagon) is one that made this place a must see for me. The Palace has a height (276 ft), a floor area of (3,930,000 sq ft) and a volume of (90,000,000 cu ft). The Palace of the Parliament is the heaviest building in the world, weighing about 4,098,500,000 kilograms (9.0356×109 lb). AFTER 4 Decades the building still remains at approximately 70% empty. Nicolae (the former president of Romania) and his wife Elena Ceaușescu were executed by firing squad, (televised) on December 25, 1985 after a trial. The main charge was genocide. I will spare you the rest. I ❤️ this, not particularly this story but the ability to see in person something that I’ve come to know through my own discovery.

One of our favorite places we’ve been to is the big island of Hawaii so for our #babymoon it’s exactly where we decided to go. Re-confirming how much we love it here and this time are just relaxing, eating, and sleeping. Gotta get these moments in before baby comes right?? #21weekspregnant . .

I hit two friends with "Aye, do y'all want to go to JAMAICA FRIDAY?????" One friend was already traveling and the other said "send me the flights you are looking at". We booked five days before we left and here we are, in Jamaica, taking in all of its goodness. #TravelLife #TravelSquadAlwaysReady #TheSweetVoyager #Jamaica

Throw back to my trip in Macao. I realized there how much I do hate Casinos... I think there is nothing more boring than gambeling, give me a billion and I will definitely gamble my money on producing films, buying artworks and never spent a dime in those places. Except from that I did loved the street's Chinese traditional theater, nature's and some old portugaise parts of the island.

What I’ve learned this weekend: no matter how you shake it, sometimes getting closure stings/hurts more than being left in limbo and the best way to truly heal is to step away from all the noise and focus on yourself... Felt really low about myself for entirely too much of this weekend so here is a pic from a day when I didn’t feel low...

The Maasai Tribe and culture in Kenya reminded me why I travel. I’m not sure I’ve ever met a more intriguing group of people. It’s said that Maasais are one of the few groups in Kenya that still live the traditional tribal way. Here are a few interesting facts about the Maasai people: ⁣ ⁣ • They are semi nomadic pastoralists and their homes reflect that. They’re actually built by women and they’re made of dung & mud - as you can see me standing in front of one here. ⁣ ⁣ • They are polygamists(and sometimes practice polyandry), with most men having more than one wife and many many children. ⁣ ⁣ • Up until recently(many thanks to conservation efforts), young Maasai boys would fight Lions in order to achieve warrior status. Our guides had done it themselves when they were younger. Y’all....⁣ ⁣ • The number of wives and therefore children men have depend on their livestock. The culture pretty much revolves around cattle. ⁣ ⁣ • The Maasai currently exist in both Kenya and Tanzania, with an estimated population of 1 million. ⁣ ⁣ • They live in a very communal structure called a Enkang where 10-20 family huts are connected. It was absolutely amazing to stand in the center of this small village surrounded by the entire community singing their traditional songs. ⁣ ⁣ • They often wear bright red Shukas/robes because they believe it scares the lions away. I’m seen wearing a variation of one here! ⁣ ⁣ • Many rock shaved heads, various body modifications, and lots of bold beaded jewelry. ⁣ ⁣ And this barely scratches the surface, in regards to ‘interesting’ facts. I didn’t even mention the drinking of blood. 😶 I remember telling my guide “Be real. This isn’t for show or for tourism or anything like that right?” And he was like, “no, this is truly the way we live. It’s not a joke or an act. This is the way I was raised and we are struggling to maintain this way of life in modern day Kenya.” While I can’t say I understand or even agree with every custom/tradition, it was absolutely amazing witness a culture that feels worlds apart from my own. I urge you to go and see for yourself. Have you heard of the Masai warriors?

When one door 🚪 closes, another opens 🤗 .⠀ . Perhaps it's an example of mind over matter. Many #scientists , #inventors , #entrepreneurs , #creators , movers & shakers etc. actually and/or perceivably, fail numerous times in their initial endeavors! .⠀ .⠀ I had experienced this time & time again when first building @GoddessBody Inc. into a global 🌍 women’s #holistichealth brand years ago! The key is 🔑 learning from your mistakes & constantly moving forward! .⠀ .⠀ In every perceived failure, there is an opportunity to Do better! There’s also a lesson that if learned will set us back on the track to success! So Instead of using setbacks as reasons to quit; rather, it’s best to forge new opportunities for yourself, your family, and your own career & purpose in life . .⠀ .⠀ So, it's not just about one door closing and another door opening; it's about our focus 🔍 . WIll we choose to stare at the closed door and miss the open door as it swings wide open? In truth, this quote is about missed opportunities. .⠀ .⠀ Many people do not like &, therefore, resist change. Yet, not all change is bad. Sometimes, the ambiguity of the change makes it difficult to see beyond. A closed door to some may mean loss or failure. What if, instead, it's an opportunity for development and growth? .⠀ .⠀ Those who don't dwell on what might have been but focus on what could be are able to see the open door before them and walk through it with bold #faith that they are headed in the right direction! Perhaps it's an example of mind over matter. A healthy #Mindset is key to all major successes in my opinion. .⠀ .⠀ Does this resonate with you? What do you think? Is it true that for you, when one favorable thing is taken away, another opportunity takes its place? .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #paros #parosisland #greece #Cyclades #ParosGreece #colofulstreets #manifestation #travelnoire #travelblog #holistichealth #holisticblog

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Maeklong Railroad market. Here is a view of it from outside and inside of the train. 🚊 Which do you think came first: the train or the market? The answer is in my stories (or Thailand highlights if it’s been 24hrs since I’ve posted this). • • • Every 30mins or so everyone pushed up their awning, pushed back their tables & stands back as the train slowly comes by. #maeklong #maeklongrailwaymarket #bangkok #thailandmarkets #visitbangkok #travelnoire #blacktravelgram #soultravel #blacktravelbloggers

True: You never know someone until you live with them. Also true: you never know someone until you travel with them. 🛫 I have this thing where I only travel with certain people because if I spend money to go on vacation and then I'm annoyed by your presence, then we have a problem. 😒 On vacation…I DO NOT WANT PROBLEMS. I just wanna spread love. You know? The Brooklyn Way! ♥️ I can be with my travel partners for numerous days and every day is a new adventure. Whether it's missing our bus, getting stranded in Oia and having a stranger drive us back to our hotel through the unknown winding roads of Fira 🇬🇷. Or meeting newlyweds in Rome 🇮🇹, and going everywhere with them from an ice bar to the club, to NOT back to their room (no matter how much the girl wanted us to) 😂. Or meeting Trump voters (which I pegged them for but we did not talk about politics once) from Kansas City, MO in Salerno 🌊 who became our surrogate American parents 👫. Whether it's drunk freestyling in Stuytown or the sounds of a violinist serenading us with "All of Me" near the Trevi Fountain, I'm looking forward all the adventures 2020 has to offer! 🌍🇪🇸 #nowthassaword #blackgirlbloggers #travelnoire #wanderlust #blackgirlstraveltoo
