The Arthur's Seat Failure
Introduction I had intended to try to climb Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh on my current visit to actually do the climb and get some photographs from the summit. I do like being up a height (even though I have a fear of heights) just to prove to myself that I can do it. At the end of this story are two other stories documenting my climbing exploits (successes and failures) in Edinburgh which you may find interesting if you enjoy my ramblings in this particular piece.Mike Singleton - Mikeydred

The Painted Atlas Presents: Art Deco Buildings Around the World, Part 1
Hello, and welcome to my feature on Art Deco buildings around the world! My name is Denise Elnajjar, and I'm an illustrator who has just launched my project The Painted Atlas, where I will be painting something for each country, each week! Content is available now for members who join. This project was made possible by entering a challenge right here on Vocal, also judged by Memberful. (You can check out my original entry, "Armchair Traveling to Every Country Through Art" here!) It is my hope that The Painted Atlas each week will spark wonder and maybe even a little joy. It is suitable for lovers of travel, design, art, geography, and more. A portion of suscription proceeds will go towards efforts to remove plastic from the oceans.Denise Elnajjar
When Jesus didn't answer me.
I was standing alone in a desert. It was windy and dark. The sun had already gone over the horizon, and night had come down to face me. By then I understood that darkness is inevitable and that we are only passing through as guests. I could only spot a few specific lights in this seemingly abandoned little town. Hopefully, there was someone to help me find a place where I could spend the night. My first stop was usually a fire station.Oleksandr MatvyeyevPublished 2 months ago in Wander
Under the Uruguayan Sun
Uruguay is by far the most unique and underrated country I have ever traveled to. When thinking about South American destinations, most of us automatically think of Colombia or Brazil; however, if you are considering a trip, then Uruguay should be at the top of your list. There isn’t much that can compare to the great food and scenic landscapes it possesses. Even better were the amazing memories I made while there.Jared SheetsPublished 3 months ago in Wander
Thanksgiving in Sicily
Heavenly aromas filled the air of our Sicilian townhouse with such density you could almost taste them. Conversation hummed in the air, a strange, beautiful medley of Italian and English from our Italian and American guests that was as familiar to me as breathing. After thirteen years in Sicily, I understood both, but I didn't have time to listen much, rushing around as I helped my parents with the finishing touches of the meal.
A different kind of love letter part 2
