I remember the first moment I saw the antelopes in the Etosha National Park. When we arrived at our first campsite, they were grazing next to the entrance. I got really excited. We asked the ladies at the front desk if we were allowed to walk outside. They, of course, said no. The park was full of wild animals that could kill us in seconds. I felt sad and disappointed.
The next day at 8 in the morning, we were ready to drive around. The first animals we encountered were the antelopes. Finally I got some shots. We kept on driving, hoping to see some other animals. Within a few hours we saw some here and there, and also dozens of more antelopes. They were just everywhere.
On the second day, I had seen hundreds of antelopes already, and on the third day I did not even turn my head when I saw an antelope. I was literally bored of them. The antelopes had become my reality only after 3 days in a national park...
It's so weird that people get used to everything so quickly. We get used to places and over time, we can't see them from a different perspective. The same goes for things or even for people. We forget the value of things when we have them. We don't think of how fragile life is and how easy it is to lose everything. We are never thankful.
Today I look at this photo and miss the tiny sweet antelopes. Wish I was there right now and watched them walking, grazing and playing. And I know, if I'd be there right now, I'd get bored of them tomorrow. 
Did you read the whole caption? Then close your eyes for a moment and be grateful for what you already have. 🙂 - #namibia •

Have you ever heard of the German word
@helinbereket Helin Bereket
@helinbereket
Have you ever heard of the german word "fernweh"? it's the combination of two words: fern (far) and weh (sore). quite similar to "wanderlust", but a deeper, more intense version of it.
it's one of my favourite words since i can identify myself very much with this feeling sometimes. it comes from time to time, then disappears, comes back, disappears again. and sometimes it comes and stays until i go somewhere faaaar far away. by "far" i mean the mental contrast between everyday life and the trip, rather than the physical distance.
today i woke up with a very deep fernweh. i feel it so deeply that it doesn't seem like it's gonna go away until i leave the town soon. counting the days...
what about you? ever experienced fernweh? - #namibia

I'm looking for 2 new accounts to follow. Any suggestions? Please no food photographers (I still don't understand why people do that), no cute shit (exceptions are welcome), no photos of city symbols every second day (we have internet after all), no star instagrammers who act like celebrities. What I'm looking for is people with good eyes and a great mind who can surprise me every time. Looking forward to your suggestions. (Please don't suggest yourself 🙂)

Richterovi Neboderi, also known as the Rakete (Rockets) are three brutalist buildings which were completed in 1968. All of them have 22 floors and the highest one reaches a height of 70 m.
I really liked their distinctive shape which was designed to resist possible shocks after the earthquake in Skopje in 1963. Check out my stories to see them all together and 2 other shots. - #derplattenbau #zagreb •

My dreams are usually ridiculous like having Freddie Mercury as a guest in my childhood apartment or riding a huge turtle while fighting some ninjas.
But sometimes I dream of moments that I've already experienced and the next morning I remember that I have a photo of it. Like this one. No idea what my subconscious wants to tell me this time (Taken in 2012, one of my very first photos). - #iceland •
