Enter the #gold room! I love it when a venue makes an effort to jazz everything up for special events. πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•Ί Ultimately, all that was added to the room was some gold #foil and #balloons and yet we still gasped and grinned and everyone stopped for photos with the #gatsby #glitz and #glamour of the decorations. πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜ #letmetakeaselfie 🀳🀳🀳🀳 #appreciationpost #touristathome #cardiff #womanbystreet #cymru #homesweethome #dancing #clwbiforbach #travelblogger #travelgram #goodvibes #goodtimes #happy #smile #travelinladies #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #fancy

If I was a boat I'd be this one.
Wanting freedom to roam and the safety of mooring.

Reapplying coats of paint to ensure everyone else keeps smiling.

Keeping the wood burner glowing and the plants growing.

#Repost from @mattmcgorry with @regram.app ... A few years ago on MLK day, I posted, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." I saw that a woman of color had commented, "why do all white people post this quote?" I remember feeling defensive. I thought, how could she disagree that love was a good idea? How could she disagree with MLK about love?
#
It wasn't until quite a while later that I saw the limitations of my thinking. Now, 3 and a half years into making a life priority out of confronting white and male supremacy head on, I can better understand what I was missing. It is not that the quote that I shared is "bad" or "wrong," or that I am either of those things for posting it. The problem is in the fact that I posted this quote, and then the next day, went about living my life the same way that I always had. I rarely thought about racism. Being white, I never HAD to think about it. Despite considering myself liberal, I wasn't politically engaged, and I certainly was not engaged in consistently exploring my whiteness or working to change the systems that gave me those privileges.
#
So the problem with posting the quote...and ONLY doing that, is that it let me (and often lets most other white people) off the hook of having to continuously think about and engage with whiteness and racism that shows up even in liberal and progressive circles and cities. MLK wrote, β€œWhites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar mass effort to reeducate themselves out of their racial ignorance. It is an aspect of their sense of superiority that the white people of America believe they have so little to learn.” #
White folks...we must do more than be angry at the current president. The is work to be done in our hearts, our minds, and our communities...no matter how liberal or progressive they are. Will you honor his true legacy?

"Why, if I had a brain,
I could while away the hours,
Conferrin' with the flowers,
Consultin' with the rain.
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain." I'm no WOZ fan but this #scarecrow really made me smile and start #singing 😍 I think his job is better than mine!

Travel with someone who likes to take a #selfie as much as you do!
It helps if they also like #cats #dogs #foxes #raccoons #birds #chocolate #reading #culture and #travel too ❀️

There are people that find #wonder and #joy in the same places as you, when you find them, #appreciate them!

This tree is a hierarchy.
An indominatable base of boughs all sinking;
There's callow twigs at the helm.
Yet to learn the names of lichen, algae or moss.

I wrote this while awed at a tree that probably stood before the peacocks were imported, has outlasted every generation that grew-up there. Something about it moved me.

I still get a bit fizzy and excitable everytime a #peacock struts towards me. How many people have peacocks that just roam their university grounds and the town's streets? Fab-U-lous! 😍😍😍
Pecocks are native to India and it's assumed they made it to Corsham because of the Romans!
Their call is the mournful bale of an injured cat. Eerie.

The winding streets of nostalgia in Little England. We wouldn't be surprised by men in top hats and gleaming crystal topped canes. The Dickensian images abound. ❀️

What I actually saw was a lot of short white haired shufflers and small scruffy dogs on sensible leads. πŸ‘Œ

The canal at Glocester Quays was formally opened on the 26th of April 1827, and a huge crowd gathered to watch the first two vessels enter the basin amid the firing of guns and the ringing of church bells.
In 2018 the canal is home to boats like The Bearded Dwarf!

I volunteered at The Donkey Sanctuary, Manchester, for a year and now seem to spot a #burro everywhere I go. If humans are involved too I'm usually concerned!

You can see a #Raccoon a #coati and an #europeaneagleowl in this mini montage. You can also see a slightly #smug expression playing on my lips... Basically, I nailed Christmas by buying Georgia an #animalexperience and we spent an hour with these 3 fascinating species. 😍😍😍 A pair of naughty Coatis, Sid and Diego, climbed on our heads to investigate and claw at our hair (something we #giggled at and delighted in!) Diego also took a liking to my perfume and kept tugging at my coat sleeve to reach my wrist 🀣🀣🀣 #lukeandleia the raccoon siblings, were just incredible, the #chucklebrothers of the #sanctuary with Luke scoffing food voraciously, from a pouch held securely by Leanne, and Leia playing it coy. She surprised us by appearing at Georgia's ankle and giving it a little sniff and tug. Georgia also got 2 nose #boops from Luke. 2! 2 to my 0!

We learnt Owls are not wise! The brain of the European Eagle owl only takes up 5% of its head! So that handsome Hercules you see, his brain is the size of a grape! His eyes were mesmerising.
Basically, go! We got our experience on Groupon, otherwise it's Β£125 for 2. However, I trusted these people. The animals aren't just considered cute or cool but respected and we had so much knowledge shared with us.

They only open to the public 6 days a year, admission less than £5, next open day March 4th. It's already in our calendar! ❀️❀️❀️ #animalsofinstagram #adoptdontshop #education #notazoo #owls #daytrip #goexplore #bekind #learn #travelgram #ethical #travelblogger

You can pay Β£5 to spend 20 minutes in a #snuggle #tent and it's a #donation for rehoming purposes. Georgia took selfies until her phone died. The #Pug πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ Plus, they serve an amazing ice cream based coconut and chocolate #milkshake
