Ibn Battuta was a Moroccan Berber Islamic scholar and traveler known for the record of his travels and excursions published in the Rihla (literally, “The Journey”). His journeys spanned nearly thirty years and covered almost the entire known Islamic world and beyond, extending from North Africa, West Africa, SouthernEurope and Eastern Europe in the West, to the Middle East, Indian subcontinent, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and China in the East, a distance far surpassing that of his predecessors and his near-contemporary Marco Polo. On account of the Rihla, Ibn Battuta is considered one of the greatest travelers of all time.  He traveled more than 75,000 miles (121,000 km), a figure unlikely to have been surpassed by any traveler until the coming of the Steam Age some 450 years later.

I’m so sorry for everything
I’m so sorry for everything

Baby, come over, I need entertaining
I had a stilted, pretending day
Lay me down and say something pretty

Lay me back down where I wanted to stay
Just say something perfect, something I can steal
Say, look at me

Baby, we’ll be fine
All we’ve gotta do is be brave and be kind

the national - baby, we’ll be fine

Dany had grown very fond of Missandei. The little scribe with the big golden eyes was wise beyond her years. She is brave as well. She had to be, to survive the life she’s lived. One day she hoped to see this fabled isle of Naath. Missandei said the Peaceful People made music instead of war. They did not kill, not even animals; they ate only fruit and never flesh. The butterfly spirits sacred to their Lord of Harmony protected their isle against those who would do them harm. Many conquerors had sailed on Naath to blood their swords, only to sicken and die. The butterflies do not help them when the slave ships come raiding, though.

It took me one hour and half on a train to finally arrive somewhere near the sea. It was worth it. I feel so much better now, I’ve missed the sea so much.
