🥇 A weekend in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with my favorite digital nomads by @adventureevryday

Duh! You might be thinking to yourself, and you’d be right. But my ignorance at the time I agreed to venture on a weekend trip there at the invitation of my digital nomad friends Justin and Charlotte who were spending the winter there had me thinking it was those islands off the east coast of Spain in the Mediterranean. You know, Mallorca and Ibiza and such. As it turns out, it’s a significantly longer flight from Oslo to “Granca”, as the Norwegians affectionately refer to one of their preferred winter holiday destinations, nearly 6 hours each way. Not something I would normally consider for a normal weekend trip, but I was in the mood to escape the Norwegian winter as much as possible, so I jumped at the invite without properly doing my homework.

🥈 Timeline of the assassination of President Lincoln - #showcasesunday by @derangedvisions

The day Lincoln was assassinated is a day that a lot of people know, but not many people know the events that led up to the him being killed. While I was visiting Washington DC, I was able to take a trip to the Ford's Theater and go on a tour through it. Inside of the theater they had a hallway and on the walls were pictures. One side of the hallway had a timeline of what Lincoln was doing throughout that day.

🥉 My journeys through the sub-continent: highlights Kolkata to Wagah by @grindle

Hey, I thought I would publish the highlights of my travels through the Indian Subcontinent.First off I have to admit to being in love with this amazing place, the people, the karma, sights and sounds. The chaos and the food all combine to make this in my opinion the most magical place to visit, visit indeed: several visits at least. After a couple of horrendous flights and the over tedious bureaucracy of Indian immigration arriving late in the evening at my overnight accommodation only to find it was an alcohol free establishment, wonderful, off to bed.
