Europe Blog 2 of 4 …oops

Yeah, yeah I failed at blogging during my trip but I’m writing one now, so does that make up for it? *cue puppy dog eyes* Okay, it doesn’t but I’ll post some amazing pictures that will hopefully help calm your anger. 

And to add to my amazing blogging skills, I’ll write one for each country which will hopefully add to your excitement!

If I can describe day one in two words it would be: no sleep. Our flight departed from Montreal on April 29th at 7pm, it was 6.5 hours, therefore with the time change we landed in Amsterdam at 7am local time. We toured the city during our 8 hour layover and came back to the airport for our transfer flight to Glasgow. Amsterdam was a beautiful city, definitely worth the 8 hours. By the time we arrived in Glasgow unpacked and went to bed, it had been 30 hours since I had contact with a pillow. I fell asleep at 9pm, I hadn’t been to bed that early in a very long time!

If you’re [in your 20s], physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel - as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people LIVE and EAT and COOK. Learn from them - wherever you go.

Drosera Capensis - Reverse Lens
Piccica - Bellissima e letale. *-*

Drosera Capensis is a small carnovorous species of sundew, from Cape in South Africa.  It has strap-like leaves covered in coloured tentacles. On the top of this tentacles there is a little ball of sticky mucilage that traps little insects. First the insect are trapped, after the leaves roll lenghtwise towar the center. 
In the next to last photo you can see two ants, one recent and recognizable, the other skeletal without nutriment.

Quick, gorgeous, lethal.

All the photos except the last one are taken with Reverse Technique, Canon is optimal to do this also without ring adapter! 
THERE is a video that can show you how to make this kind of photos!
