Waiting For Someone To Love

Right now someone you haven’t met is out there wondering what it would be like to meet someone like you.

Finding love is a combination of many things, sometimes it is caused by random circumstance, and sometimes it is a product of a longtime friendship between two individuals. Just know that if you are looking for love chances are there is someone out there who is very compatible with you that is looking for love as well. In order to best pursue love, one should be willing to put in the effort to find it.

Doing things that allow for you to be in social situations that will help you to meet people is probably one of the most efficient tasks that you can do in order to most effectively you obtain a love interest. Never give up on love, though at times we may think that we will never find love, if we just keep a positive attitude and keep our eyes and hearts open, love will find us.

The Devil’s Pool – I want to TRY this!

The aptly-named Devil’s Pool is definitely one of the most surreal locations on Earth. It is a small natural rock pool on the edge of one of the biggest, most beautiful waterfalls in the world, the Victoria Falls, located along the Zambezi River on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Devil’s Pool is adjacent to Livingstone Island on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River. This is where David Livingstone first set eyes on the Victoria Falls remarking “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”.

For most of the year, anyone foolish enough to enter the water would be instantly swept over the edge to his death.

During the dry season which usually lasts from September to December, Devil’s Pool is shallow enough that people can safely swim right to the edge before the waterfall drops more than 300 feet. You don’t get swept down by the force of the falls because of a natural rock wall just below the surface. This is as close as you can get to the thunderous roar and permanent rainbows that adorn this magnificent Natural World Wonder.

Lying right at the edge of the fall.

The Devil’s Pool

Don’t try this if you have a fear of heights.

A man and his young son looking over the waterfalls.

Only a slippery, submerged lip of rock stands between these bathers and a 100m drop over the world’s largest waterfall.

Once you get close to the right spot it takes a bit of courage to make a leap of faith, jump in from a rock, and trust you will not get swept over the edge. There is a safety line to hold onto when you’re swimming to get to Devils’ Pool in case the current is too much for you.

If you are looking for a taste of life on the edge and loves a sudden rush of adrenalin, this just has to be the place.

Tourists challenge gravity at the edge of the falls.

The Devil’s Pool experience is popular and is only possible when conditions are right, usually September – December.

One thrill-seeker is brave enough to stand on the ledge above the falls.

A father poses with his youngster perilously close to the 100m drop.

DAMN!!! I am so envious with these tough people! hahaha! 🙂 Let me ask you, if given a chance would you dare try that once in a lifetime crazy to death experience? For me, HELL YEAHhh!
