The Etosha Salt Pan. This incredible place of shimmering white and green sand resembles a massive inland lake from a distance when all you can see is a vast, flat heat-distorted surface gleaming in the sun. The pan was described by the Swedish explorer John Andersson in his book “Lake Nagami,” first published in 1861: “In the course of the first day's journey we traversed an immense hollow, called Etosha, covered with saline incrustations, and having wooded and well-defined borders. Such places are in Africa designated "salt-pans." The surface consisted of a soft, greenish-yellow clay soil, strewed with fragments of small sandstone of a purple tint. In some rainy seasons, the Ovambo informed us, the locality was flooded, and had all the appearance of a lake; but now it was quite dry, and the soil strongly impregnated with salt. Indeed, close in shore, this commodity was to be had of a very pure quality.” #greatexplorers #greatwhiteplace #etoshasaltpan #etoshanationalpark #namibiaroadtrip #beautifullegends #desertlandscapes #namibialandscapes

I crawled out the window and ran into the woods. I had to make up all the words myself. The way they taste, the way they sound in the air. I passed through the narrow gate, stumbled in, stumbled around for a while, and stumbled back out. I made this place for you. A place for you to love me. If this isn't a kingdom then I don't know what is... ~Richard Siken • 📸: @carlywielstein29 @nikhilshukla#tuesdayfeels #summertime #greatexplorers #getoutdoors

Don't waste your time doing things that doesn't bring glory to God; things that don't make you great. #greatness #greatness #greatnessawaits #greatexplorers #greatexpectations
Explorers venture off into the uncharted. Great explorers inspire others to venture with them. I know I'm not an athlete but I do love a good adventure. Definitely owe it to this wreckeless goof who pushes us to try new things. Even without saying words, he just runs off and people naturally follow.

#ThusUrbanLife : While I work on being a writer, I have a little part-time job sorting mail in the early mornings. Yesterday a letter came through with four of these 1970 Captain Cook series stamps on it. I wonder who had them in their bottom drawer for 48 years and why they used them now? Amazing and beautiful! #letters #stamps #stampcollecting #philatety #captaincook #endeavour #greatexplorers #australia #bicentenary #randwick #randwickpostoffice #sydney #australiapost @auspost

IGNACY LUKASIEWICZ (1822 - 1882) A propotype of modern oil sheikhs. PHARMACEUTIST --> DISCOVERER --> OILMAN --> SOCIAL WORKER ______________________________________________ ,,It can be assumed that today he wouldn't be entirely satisfied with that his name everyone associates with AN OIL LAMP. Which one, incidentally, didn't even patent. His greatest achievement was the development of THE PURIFICATION AND PROCESSING METHOD OF CRUDE OIL. And second one, from which he could be the most pround and whom he devoted the rest of his life was THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE OIL INDUSTRY in Subcarpatia and CIVILIZATION ADVANCEMENT of this region." Adam Zubek, "Polityka" Magazine ------------------------------------------------------------------ IGNACY ŁUKASIEWICZ (1822-1882) Pierwowzór współczesnych szejków naftowych APTEKARZ --> WYNALAZCA --> NAFCIARZ --> SPOŁECZNIK ______________________________________________ ,,Można przypuszczać, że dzisiaj nie byłby do końca zadowolony z tego, że jego nazwisko wszyscy kojarzą z LAMPĄ NAFTOWĄ. Której nawiasem mówiąc, nawet nie opatentował. Jego największym dokonaniem było opracowanie METODY OCZYSZCZENIA I PRZERÓBKI ROPY NAFTOWEJ. A drugim, z którego mógł być najbardziej dumny i któremu poświęcił resztę życia, była BUDOWA PRZEMYSŁU NAFTOWEGO na Podkarpaciu i AWANS CYWILIZACYJNY tego regionu."

Still at the Natl. Portrait Gallery in London. Standing supremely tall among the great Victorian explorers, Richard Francis Burton was adventure personified. Diplomat, spy, linguist, geographer, soldier, poet, writer, fencer. Spoke several languages including Arabic, Persian and several Indian languages. Translated the 1000 and One Nights and published the Kama Sutra in English. Snuck into Mecca in disguise risking his life (one of the first Westerners to do so). Explored the Great Lakes region of East Africa in search of the source of the Nile. And, most importantly, he eschewed the prevailing Western sentiment of the time of not intermingling with the “colored” natives. His “A Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to...Meccah” is a terrific read.

The Vacheron Constantin “tribute to the great explorers” model has always been among my favorite VC from the time i was working with this great manufacture. It ticks to many boxes! among which -enamel dial -unusual time display -stepped luggs -limitation (60 made only per explorer). >>>Lot 2389 of our HK auction with estimate of 30 to 50k usd #vacheronconstantin #greatexplorers #enameldial #47070
A happy belated birthday to Howard Carter! Born on May9th, Carter is undoubtedly best known for the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun, the famed archaeology contributed greatly to the field not only with his work but also with his detailed illustrations and a series of exciting lectures that inspired the American Egyptomania in the 20's. Source: bit.ly/2IbxczF Photo: The hit 'Old King Tut was a Wise Old Nut', 1923, was part of the Egyptomania wave taking over the world, following Howard Carter's discovery. That was of course before the publishing of the fact Tutankhamun was actually a boy-king. Photo: The gilded wooden coffin of the mummy of Tutankhamun.

CONQUISTADOR is a photographic project built on the very dense archive of the life of Louis de Boccard (1866-1956), a Swiss man exiled in Argentina at the end of the 1880s and deceased in Paraguay in 1956. Nicolas Savary, a Lausanne photographer, fortuitously came into possession of this archive. It consists of photo albums, a correspondence, historical documents, press articles and diaries. @photobookcorner #nicolassavary #editorialrm #photobookjousting #southamerica #greatexplorers

Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos) - Lisbon Portugal, Spring 04/04/2018 . The 52 m (171 ft) monument was initiated in Nov 1958 (about 60 years ago) on the northern bank of the Tagus River estuary, in the civil parish of Santa Maria de Belém, Lisbon. Located along the river where ships departed to explore and trade with India and Orient, the monument celebrates the Portuguese Age of Discovery (or Age of Exploration) during the 15th and 16th centuries. Captured this image when we visited the wide open space by the Tagus River on Wednesday afternoon, windy with brighter weather. . #lisbon #visitlisbon #portugal #lisboa #super_lisboa #super_portugal #lissabon #lisbonne #bestcitybreaks #map_of_europe #lisbona #visitportugal #living_europe #beautifuldestinations #ig_europa #passionpassport #vascodagama #vascodagamabridge #greatexplorers #worldexplorer #padraodosdescobrimentos #tagusriver #ageofexploration
Catching up on some down-time reading. • Can you imagine the Africa that the likes of Stanley, Livingstone and Selous must have seen? • “The lion caught my shoulder as he sprang, and we both came to the ground below together. Growling horribly close to my ear, he shook me as a terrier dog does a rat.” - Dr. David Livingstone. • Using this long weekend to explore the magical coastal forests of the Garden Route, South Africa. • #exploring #africa #kingsleyholgate #livingstone #stanley #selous #courtneyselous #greatexplorers
Vasco da Gama Bridge, Lisbon Portugal - Spring 04/2018 . The 12.345 kilometres (7.671 mi) cable-stayed bridge spans the Tagus River in Parque das Nações in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. . Captured this view when visited Lisbon Portugal early this month. It reminds me of those days during secondary school in 70s, we used to hear Vasco da Gama name, one of the world's history character. Faded memory of almost half a century but it's an interesting knowledge of a Portuguese explorer and the first European to reach India by sea. . #lisbon #visitlisbon #portugal #lisboa #super_lisboa #super_portugal #lissabon #lisbonne #bestcitybreaks #map_of_europe #lisbona #visitportugal #living_europe #beautifuldestinations #ig_europa #passionpassport #vascodagama #vascodagamabridge #greatexplorers #worldexplorer
