Patrik Wallner, known for his skate videos shot in exotic locations, took a week off to visit Burma. Instead of putting his camera down, however, he captured the beautiful scenes below from the weightless perspective of a hot air balloon. Seeing “all the temples illuminated by the morning light was really a magical experience which I can’t stress enough for you to try for yourself if you happen to go to that side of the world!” he says.
Still not at the top of my list of travel destinations, but my brother and sister-in-law did this hot air balloon ride and said it was one of their favorite things they’ve done on vacation (and they travel a lot).
josiepye asked: What have you been reading lately?
Hahahaha, right this moment I am reading about fertility because half the people I know are having babies and I got curious! And I’m partway through Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon; I don’t think it will be my favorite of his but I’m enjoying it. I was just sold on it by a scene where then-state-senator Obama wanders into a character who’s having a terrible day and offers words of encouragement. Who wouldn’t want Barack Obama to appear with appropriately supportive words?
I finished the third of the Fitzosborne books by Michelle Cooper a couple weeks ago; those are a DELIGHT. And I just read The Language of Flowers for book club, which was not really my thing but led to the best confusing conversation when I was telling Ali about it and she misheard “florist” as “forest” and was like, “hold up, did she have the baby before or after she became a forest?” and I misheard HER and said “after” and kept going. I might have liked the book where she became a forest better.
Marry Pacey in a heartbeat, shag Catalano, because he does have a great lean, and maybe Rayanne would be in for an ill-advised threesome. SORRY, SETH, I LOVE YOU AND WOULD LOVE TO HANG OUT ANY TIME, BUT BETWEEN RYAN AND SUMMER SOMEONE WILL HELP YOU GET OUT OF THAT CHASM EVENTUALLY. OR CALL YOUR DAD.
Did you say move heaven and earth to come and find you, shooting as many kneecaps as I could along the way, because I did that. I always do what you ask, aren't you proud? Harold? Harold my eyesight is going I need to put my face next to your face to see how you're reacting to all of this. You look pale, I'm concerned. I may need to make out with you a little to make sure your heart rate is fine and you're breathing normally. Relax, it is all part of the job.
