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 It consists of photo albums, a correspondence, historical documents, press articles and diaries.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

Outdoor clothing is quite expensive.While I'm slowly packing I think I'm lucky that the logo from an old project I was part of, "Silkroad experiences: Roads of Dialogue", fits most of the countries I'm bound to. The books are antique jewels which showed me the way: Die Seidenstrasse (The Silk Road, 1941) Rätsel der Gobi (Riddles of the Gobi desert, 1931) Abenteuer in Tibet (Adventures in Tibet, 1938) #svenhedin , #tibet , #nepal , #silkroad , #himalaya , #transhimalaya ,#adventure , #liveyouradventure , #findyourpath , #mountainlovers , #mountains #gobidesert , #outdoors , #roamtocreate , #antiquebooks , #oldbooks , #gothicscript , #travelwriters #travelwriter , #traveldeeper , #storyteller , #exploremore , #instatravel , #passportready , #greatexplorers , #greatbooks , #mountainwomen , #sheisnotlost , #camerawoman , #travelwoman

New fruit alert. These are feijoas. From Zealand. They smell like mint and taste like washing up liquid. #newzealand #discoveries #greatexplorers #newlows #outofworkactress
Colonel Robert Jacob Gordon The man who named the Orange River in 1777. We are in the small town of Bethulie where Colonel Gordon stumbled across two Rivers. The Caledon and the Orange meet at this point. Gordon had heard of a great river and thought it must be the larger of the two. He then set out on horseback towards the mouth of the river. He only declared the river as the Oranje/Orange when he reached the Ocean, naming it after the Royal Dutch house Orange. On his journey he found himself unintentionally swimming with Hippo's and fighting off Bushmen as he got close to the Namibian border. Great to be following in this man's footsteps down the river. Apparently people back then were caught up between whether he was a soldier or an explorer. Can't you be both? Perhaps back in the 1700s The town of Bethulie has a long and interesting history. We have heard stories about Voortrekkers, Battles with the Sesotho, Concentration Camps and of course the famous Colonel Gordon. This is one of the reasons I wanted to come on such an expedition, to learn more about my country's history, meet new and interesting people and broaden my mind. Adventure and travel really is a great education, I never much enjoyed school when I was there, but I love this outdoor classroom. #bethulie #colonelgordon #caledon #orange #southafricanhistory #depth #interest #education #adventuretravel #broadenthemind #greatexplorers #britishsoldier #outdoorclassroom #expeditionlife #freestate
The best learning experience for young children must be real , concrete/ hands-on, creative and fun. . . They must be active participants in their learning process . Making discoveries, exploring concepts and mastering skills through hands on learning at all age levels. . .

Dmt and Psilocybin—these enigmatic entheogens hold the greatest secret in our universe. They are the most powerful lens by which we can peer through. High powered telescopes enable us to see across vast distances into the farthest reaches of our visible universe. Dmt and Psilocybin enable us to peer down into the deepest depths of our mind—a fervent storm billowing through the frigid silence of nights—everlasting in its zeal to stun the senses and arrest the heart. Only for the truly intrepid, this is the highest order of expedition, a journey that lasts ten-thousand lifetimes, never do we return back into the humdrum world the same person, but as a changed being, enlivened, evermore awakened and present in our life, to change the world and become one with compassion and knowledge beyond your wildest imaginations. Strap yourself in. Have a nice seat. Blindfolded silent in a dark room. Hang on Hanna. #psilocybin #dmt #dimethyltryptamine #consciousness #ascension #entheogens #ayahuasca #psychedelia #psychedelics #taoteching #greatexplorers #metaphysics #consciousness #gaia #terencemckenna #grahamhancock #lsd #cosmicdisclosure #5d #resonancescience @resonancescience #compassion #love #enlightenment #psychedelic #zigzagzen #tibetanbuddhism #meditation #hyperspace #bardo @psychedelics_change_lives @dmt_depths @dmtspiritmolecule

RRS Discovery arrived at South Georgia on 2 November 2017 as part of the AMT4SentinelFRM voyage (first image). South Georgia has an epic history – in 1914 Sir Ernest Shackleton set sail for the island on Endurance from the UK. He reached the Wedell Sea in 1915 where upon pack ice closed in on the ship and wrecked it. Shackleton and five other men managed to flee the ship and reach the southern coast of South Georgia. From there they launched a rescue operation to save the remaining 28 sailors who had fled the ship to Elephant Island. In 1922, Shackleton planned to return to Grytviken, but prior to the voyage he suffered a heart attack and died. His grave and that of his right hand man during the voyage, Frank Wild, reside in the cemetery at Grytviken (second image). Why did the RRS Discovery undertake such a risky voyage? One of the reasons is that the South Atlantic Gyre and the Southern Subtropical Convergence zone are difficult to access and sparsely sampled. Projects such as the Copernicus AMT4SentinelFRM enable the collection of vital data for providing quality assurance of products from the Copernicus Sentinel missions. After verifying the accuracy of these products, the data are used to monitor the ocean, this blue planet that we depend on for food and for regulating our atmosphere.  The third image is an example of the satellite imagery that the AMT4SentinelFRM mission is trying to calibrate and validate (CAL/VAL). It is an advanced very-high-resolution radiometer (AVHRR) sea-surface temperature median composite on 18–24 October 2017. The South Subtropical Convergence Zone is demarked from the Southern Gyre by the green band of 15C water. #RRSDiscovery #Discovert #boat #SouthGeorgia #AMT4SentinelFRM #Copernicus #SentinelMissions #Sentinel #calibration #validation #verification #ocean #EpicHistory #SirErnestShackleton #Shackleton #Endurance #WedellSea #RescueOperation #ElephantIsland #Grytviken , #FrankWild #GreatExplorers Copyright  Images 1-2: Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML)  Image 3: Satellite imagery provided by Silvia Pardo, National Earth Observation Data Archive and Analysis Service
