So I was thinking how much the media only really ever concentrates on Western style and fashion when in fact there are some amazingly beautiful cultural pieces from around the world that I think should be appreciated more and deserve the time to be on my post.
In many different countries there are special or religious pieces of clothing that have a significant meaning behind them and in some countries they dress in certain pieces of clothing as part of their cultural identity which I believe we should see more with regards to fashion instead of it just being Western dominated, so without further ado here is my little blog post on some beautiful cultural fashion I found on the internet 🙂 I found some of these great photo’s from a really lovely blog called http://universalbeauty.tumblr.com/ which I recommend taking a look at as well!
I love all these pieces of clothing featured in these photos, each item is special or beautiful in many ways and I love the colourful and pretty designs as well – Hope you like them tool! 🙂
Disclosure: This blog post was not meant to cause offense and I hope it hasn’t, it was purely made to spread appreciation of worldwide cultural fashion 🙂
A while ago (roughly 2 years ago) I started writing a bucket list of things I want to do, being ambitious and someone who loves new things and adventures my list has some pretty crazy things on it, but also some very cool easy going things that I wanted to do and try as well! My list is phenomenally long going into the hundreds so I thought I’d share 15 random things that are on it! 🙂
Swim with sharks – I genuinely really want to do this more than anything, I love sharks they’re my favourite animal and I know an incredible useless amount of knowledge on them as well but I think they’re great because they’re fierce and beautiful at the same time. I think to start with I want to swim with sharks in an aquarium as I’m quite scared of the sea, but if I get over that fear then I’d like to swim with some different types of shark in the ocean as well, maybe Black tip reef sharks and whale sharks 🙂
Ride on an Elephant – I would love to ride on an Elephant, they’re so big and quite cute and I’d love to have a photo taken with one!
Go Skydiving – It would be undeniably scary but that’s part of the thrill I guess, plus you’d see some killer views on the way down which would be something unforgettable!
See Northern Lights – I know lots of people who want to do this as well, I think this would be amazing and a beautiful experience which I’d treasure.
Make 1000 Origami Cranes – There is a Japanese legend that whoever makes 1000 origami cranes will be granted a wish, this is something I’d love to do as I learnt how to make origami cranes really well, its just it would take a crazy amount of time!
Experience Holi or a colour festival – Holi is a festival celebrated mainly in India or Nepal and a colour festival is celebrated in South Africa Durban, I’d love to go to one of these events the powders looks so colourful and bright I think it would be amazing.
Go to a fashion show – I’d love to go to a big worldwide fashion show in one of the major cities this would be amazing to see the catwalks and designers as well as the upcoming latest styles.
Hold a bird of prey – Not many people wish to hold a bird of prey but I’m a little different, I love animals and I love to admire their beauty and birds of prey like Eagles are much like sharks in the sense that they are fierce but also beautiful.
Swim with Manta rays – I think manta rays are really incredible, I love how smooth and calm they are and I think it would be an unforgettable experience to swim with them.
Travel everywhere on my travel list – This is a big one that wont be completed for a long time, but will eventually be completed because I love travelling and aim to finish my list 🙂
Well that’s ten random things from my bucket list! Hope you enjoyed!
I love the thought of travelling and going to different places and cities and I really love it when I log onto my WordPress blog and see that I have hits and followers from many different countries, it’s very exciting and interesting for me! 🙂 So I thought I would share 10 countries that are first on my list of places.
Hope you like 🙂
South Africa – I’ve heard it’s a very beautiful country and I’d like to visit Johannesburg, Durban, Cape town and some of the national parks as well!
America – There is so many places in America I dream of visiting such as New York, Chicago, Brooklyn, Seattle and so many other places. I’ve heard it’s all very beautiful and I love cities especially big ones like London and New York!
Zimbabwe – My partner comes from Zimbabwe so I’d like to visit this country with him as I think it would be special. I’d like to specifically go to Harare and maybe get a chance to visit Victoria falls as well.
Canada – I’d like to visit Ottawa as it looks really nice there and I’d love to go to Montreal and Vancouver as well as I heard you can do lots of activities at Vancouver like whale watching.
Nepal – I would love to visit Nepal because it looks beautiful and very scenic, I’d love to go to Kathmandu specifically.
Switzerland – Switzerland looks like a really beautiful country, I’d like to visit Geneva and The old city of Berne because I’d like to experience some traditional lifestyle and see some picturesque towns and cities.
Finland – Now I have been to Helsinki but I haven’t explored anywhere in detail. But I know Finland is home to some very interesting and beautiful places. I think I’d like to go to Lapland in the North of Finland, explore Helsinki in great depth and see Northern Lights.
Chile – I think it would be really nice to visit Chile, I know there are many things to see and do such as stargazing and I’d like to experience another culture. I think it’s also a very beautiful country with great scenic views.
China – I have been to Japan before but I would like to visit China, specifically Shanghai and the Great wall of China. I’d like to visit places such as the Forbidden city/palace museum and Hangzhou as I’ve heard that’s very beautiful.
Italy – There’s lots of places in Italy I would love to visit, places like Florence, Venice, Milan and Rome especially. There’s so much to see and do and I want to be able to experience historical architecture and appreciate it. I also love to ride on a gondola, see the last supper painting and get to see the Colosseum.
These are just 10 of a long list of places I want to travel to, so if you’re country is not on here be assured it is probably on the full list! 🙂
