Nepenthe

Hey, I learned another new word last week!

 

{via other-wordly}

 

 

And now it makes sense that Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur is named as such. If you’re ever on a drive along California’s PCH and happen by Big Sur, I’d recommend a stop here. Nepenthe is a rustic restaurant which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is a great casual place to stop and relax. It’s lovely to sit outside with some appetizers and a glass of wine, and just drink in the view.

Per Nepenthe’s site:

Perched on the edge of the continent, high above the Pacific, watched over by the majestic Santa Lucia Mountains sits Nepenthe Restaurant. This Mecca of poets, artists, travelers and vagabonds has served guests for sixty years, opening for business on April 24, 1949.

 

Come on now, how great does that sound?

Optical Illusions with Travel Souvenirs

This is pretty dang cool!  A travel photo series by Michael Hughes in which he takes souvenirs and places them in front of famous landmarks.  I’m sure this is not as simple as it looks, but what awesome results!

Anouk Vogel: Folding For Peace

Oh, how PRETTY!!

Folding For Peace is a project located in Nagasaki, Japan and realised in 2011 by landscape architect, Anouk Vogel. Comissioned by the Gardening World Cup, Vogel’s project was awarded the Silver Medal & the Special Judges Award at the Festival of Flowers and World Peace.

According to her site:

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. Inspired by this popular belief, the garden Folding For Peace is the physical remain of a wish for world peace. All the plants that compose the garden are folded out of white paper.

Osaka Station City Water Display

Check out this really cool water display at the Osaka Station City in Japan. It uses the water to show time, location and other artful images. I wish I could see it up close!
