Morning Bliss

I’ve been wanting to change my morning routine for a while. On weekdays, I have afternoon classes so I spend my mornings lazing around the house before heading to university. But today was different. My mother usually goes for morning walks in the neighborhood and I decided to join her since I’m not a big fan of the gym.



I can’t tell you how amazing I felt afterwards, there’s something about walking in nature that truly rejuvenates you. Besides the obvious health benefits, I got to spend some quality time with my mother and I know how happy it made her. They say the best way to make yourself happy is to make someone else happy, right? And as an added bonus I was rewarded with beautiful scenery, which I never take the time to appreciate. Sometimes it’s just a little lifestyle change that can make a big difference and drastically improve your day. I’m going to start doing this three times a week, hopefully I can keep it up.

What is your morning routine like? Do you prefer to exercise at the start or end of your day?


Tourist At Home

I live in such a small yet beautiful country. Just when I thought I’d seen it all, yesterday was proof of how little I’d actually seen.

I went on a hiking trip with my geology class from university; we stopped at 10 locations and I hadn’t been to any of them. What was supposed to be an educational excursion turned into me discovering a whole new side of my homeland. I was a tourist in my own backyard.

Tannourine, Lebanon

Our last stop brought us to this gorgeous hidden waterfall within a cave. These pictures don’t do it justice but I tried my best to capture its beauty. If you’re ever in Lebanon and in the Tannourine area, I highly recommend you go see it as it’s truly breathtaking.

We talk about travel all the time but sometimes the most beautiful treasures are not as far as we might think!
