Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

that, and that these filler words are “more common among women”…
when people talk about how using words like “like” and “um” and “i mean” make you sound stupid, they really mean that you sound more like a woman.

The glass tank is filled with a gas called Sulfur Hexaflouride which is a one of the more dense gases, and it also happens to be as transparent as air so it gives the illusion of something floating in mid air, when it is really just acting like a boat in water.
