Vrbov Rybnik - 16 Best waterfalls in Sydney to swim in

This week my niece Janka and Her manżel Paul left Prague for adventures in the High Tatra Mountains ... I am envious as Gitka made Halušky, Pirożky and Sviečkova. To boot, all the yummy pastries and kolače,”. It is warm, hot, for Mittkeuropeans 30 degrees   .

Swimming 🏊‍♂️ in Vrbov hot spring is keeping them even hotter. 😊  The images of the spring and the mountains make us nostalgic and a bit homesick ...

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
