James Walker  I'm a guy who walks to places. Started as therapy. Became an addiction. I'm not a photographer, just here to keep memories. And hopefully, to inspire.

Well well well... I think this well might be out of order. It looks like a more cheerful version of the Ring. Maybe in seven days, a creepy girl will crawl out of my tv and kiss me on the cheek awkwardly.

Sometimes during a trip, i have to stop for a second to question my own sanity. Such was the case on this hike, when I suddenly saw a dark, odd-looking "mountain" towering ominously over the road, at an area that is supposed to be mostly flat. Turns out it's slag: waste produced slowly over the decades in a nearby powerplant.
Google Maps even marks it as a "tourist attraction". It has no ratings yet.
(Swipe for a closer look.)

Stone waterfall on the slovakian side of Somoskő castle's hill. Turns out if molten lava meets cold water, this kind of thing can happen because of... science. In hungarian, we call it "basalt-organ".

Whenever I see a lonely tree in a cozy landscape while hiking, i have a sudden, irresistable urge to take a picture of it. It's a debilitating problem.

Boszorkánykő, or "Witch's rock", remnant of a very, very, very old volcano in northern Hungary. Swipe for the view of the nearby ruined castle, and some artsy basalt close-up. ---

One of the last remaining primeval forests in Europe: Perućica. The air beneath the trees is chill and full of life, even in the most excruciating summer. ---

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks. Usually mosquito-bites.

The rooms are a bit plain, but the view is okay. Dervishes sure knew where to build their monastery. - #blagajtekke in #bosnia🇧🇦 ---

If you are curious what walking on the sun must feel like, come and visit Pocitelj, a lovely little scorching hot medieval village in Herzegovina. ☀️ Bring lots of sunscreen. ---
