Once upon a time, a #Jamaican and two #Chinese were in a car. The only words and gesture that transcended across our language barrier and two different cultures were, “I LOVE YOU” and a smile.
▫️
This couple was on a day tour I did a couple days ago. I saw them at a bus stop in town and recalled they neither spoke or understood English. I also knew the bus wasn’t running on schedule and that they would be waiting for a long time. So I slammed on my breaks and offered to give them a ride (fine tuned my charades skills). They had their hotel name written down in English and once they showed it to me, I plugged it into my GPS and gave them a thumbs 🤙🏾 that I would take them. The wife clung to my arm (just as pictured) the entire 20 minute ride and periodically kissed me on my cheek while I was driving and would repeat “I lurb you.” I would smile and give a 👍🏾. As we got closer to their hotel they stirred in their seats while speaking excitedly to each other in their native tongue. Once the car came to a stop, husband in the back patted my head and hugged my neck from behind and the wife turned and gave me the biggest embrace while repeating “I lurb you, I lurb you.” I repeated “you are welcome” but she continued to hold me in her embrace. I was starting to wonder 🤔 if she was going to let me go. A thought surfaced that I should say “I love you too” instead of ‘you are welcome.’ And it worked, after repeating I love you too 5-6ltimes her embrace loosened. We all posed for a selfie, for memories sake. As I pulled away to find my way back to the main road, I watched them from my rear view mirror as they waved me good bye as if they were seeing their kid off to college. .

Maybe if we all stopped to give a hand, a ride, say I love you to a stranger, lend a listening ear, the walls of hatred would come tumbling down. .

Вы когда-нибудь летали на маршрутке? И я не имею в виду тот случай, когда водитель так разогнался, что вы думали, будто маршрутка вот-вот взлетит. 😄 А по-настоящему. Нет?! А хватит воображения представить себе, как это могло бы быть? 😬
Если нет, то прямой вам путь в Луклу.

Ооо! Вообще полет в Луклу - это незабываемое впечатление. Отдельное удовольствие и мощнейший выброс адреналина.
Я слышала, некоторые девушки, уже оплатив трек к базовому лагерю Эвереста, разворачивались и отказывались идти, увидев самолёт, и посмотрев видео, как он садится. 😂 И я сама об этом подумывала, но тогда бы нечего было здесь рассказывать. А на такое я пойтиТЬ не могу. 🙅🏻

Заинтриговала вас немножко? 😊 Тогда пойду писать дальше. А вы расскажите мне про ваше самое сильное впечатление от полёта. Кстати, боитесь вообще летать?.. ⠀

When we entered the Lourve, which might as well be a maze, I made a fun game out of us "searching" for the Mona Lisa. Jordyn was too excited when we finally found her. How do you make more traditional "adult" site-seeing kid friendly? Please swipe left and tell me if you like our picture or Kennedy's picture with the Mona Lisa better 😂😂. #eurailstories #thetravelingchild
The art sculpture Support raises awareness about the effects of Global Warming and tourism in Venice. We have the ability to either sustain or destroy our global heritage. Its location is significant given that Venice is facing the prospect of being engulfed by rising sea levels. This has been one of the most emotionally moving pieces we have seen while traveling though Italy, as it directly effects us now. Thank you @lorenzoquinnartist for creating this meaningful sculpture.
