After we die, one of the only thing that remains after us for future generations are the buildings we make. If made properly they can last thousands of years. Despite this, everything must face the test of time and time will always win. As these great monuments of past civilizations weather down, all that’s left is the ruins. These remains are our best source to tell us about these civilizations hundreds and even thousands of years later.

Took this happy selfie on my first trip traveling solo. This was such an empowering experience and one that I love sharing with my South Asian gals especially! Our culture and parents often pressure us into staying home and fearing the world. I’m lucky to have parents that empower me to be independent, but it wasn’t always that way. They had a learning curve too. That process was difficult, but not impossible! To my fellow brown ladies seeking adventure: it is out there, and it is yours for the taking.
These pictures were taken 2years ago when My dad joined us on our travels. Walking through an ancient roman city, Pompei that was buried under volcanic ash 79AD. Very eerie when you see the people and animals of that time covered in ash and still very much intact! We even tackled hiking up the volcano, Mount Vesuvius . My dad even managed to walk up with us! Well, I just about managed! When you hike 1,281m above sea level, the vertigo starts to kick in! Not good when you are scared of heights too😳🤪 #pompeii#mountvesuvius#pompei
