There has been a terrible lack of posts recognizing the Philippine Typhoon and that’s why I’m making this post. The Philippines just had the WORST typhoon in history called, Haiyan. Now if you have no idea about the severity, the wind speeds of this typhoon was about 250 mph, which is THREE AND A HALF TIMES THE SPEED OF THE WINDS OF HURRICANE KATRINA. imagine the damage Katrina did to the US, a developed country. The Philippines is a Third world country. Most of the people in this country live in SHACKS MADE OUT OF TRASH. It is estimated that about 10,000 PEOPLE DIED. Dead bodies literally litter the streets and are STUCK IN TREES. IF YOU GIVE ANY SHITS TODAY ABOUT FELLOW HUMANITY YOU BETTER REBLOG THIS. IM NOT ONLY DOING THIS BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS FILIPINO BUT BECAUSE THIS STORM WAS THE WORST IN HISTORY. GOD BLESS THE SOULS LOST THERE. My parents were seriously almost on the verge of tears and almost screaming. We didn’t lose anybody in our family, but it has got to hurt to know that the place you came from is IN SHAMBLES. Pls spread this if you care

I have a lot of Filipino friends and people I cherish a lot! If you could donate to the cause that would be great!

Today in Alcalá de Henares, Spain - the town near Madrid where Miguel de Cervantes was born. The photo is not in black&white; it just came out that way, which I think is pretty sweet.

quote You are wrong if you think Joy emanates only or principally from human relationships. God has placed it all around us. It is in everything and anything we might experience. We just have to have the courage to turn against our habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living.

My first (very glamorous) breakfast in Madrid, in a place that really looked like it was mostly for the locals. But just being there with the city and the people around me, I wouldn’t have exchanged it for a 5-star restaurant.

Bath - home to the only thermal spa in the UK and some nice examples of Gothic and classical architecture. All in all a fine little city, quiet despite the endless stream of tourists.

London: loud and crowded most of the time, vibrant and romantic at best, amazing and exciting always.
