🥇 Scuba Diving & Waterfalls -Moalboal & Kawasan Falls-Philippines by @scubahead

When we have friends visit which used to be quite often before the dark times, before the Covid, then we would always take them to Kawasan Falls. As we are based in Moalboal it is an easy 25 minute tricycle ride to Kawasan falls and the trikes are a classic part of Philipines culture. You really do have to ride in one while you are here. It's another must do!

🥈 Vlkolínec - a day in the past by @delishtreats

The layout of Vlkolínec is defined by the terrain where it’s built. It includes wooden houses, stables, barns and even a large functioning farm. It dates back to the 10th century but the first written mention comes from the 14th century. Most of the buildings come from the 19th century but some of them, such as a bell tower are even older. It is the best preserved central European type of the settlement in the entire region.

🥉 2020 Perseid meteor shower by @velinov86

Every year in August there is this spectacular astronomic event where there is so much glare and speed of the falling stars that they are actually visible with the naked eye. So we decided that yesterday, we are going to do it. The sky was clear so we had the opportunity and we definitely seized it. The location where we decided to watch the meteor shower was the emblematic Vitosha mountain TV Tower.
