Instagram Lately

As you may know, Instagram is my favorite social media platform (follow along @caitlinmarie17!). I love sharing images from my adventures and daily life, as well as seeing what others are up to. But, sometimes a caption doesn't include all the details of an eventful day, so I thought I'd share a little more than my photos let on!

This past weekend, my friends and I ventured to a spot in Athens termed "Redneck Beach." To get to it, you follow a narrow trail off the highway and eventually make it to an area with a river, mini waterfall and sandy shores, including an island. We tanned and read and hung up some hammocks as well. The water was a bit too cold to go in, but we did have to wade through to get to the island in the middle.

I've been wanting to try this chocolate shop for the longest time and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Two friends and I decided to spontaneously make a trip this past Friday and not only was the chocolate amazing, but the gelato was great, as well. I will definitely be back.

Maybe it's the colder weather or maybe it's the huge pile of schoolwork I've been putting off - either way, I would give anything to be in Cape Cod right now. We spend a chunk of every summer there with our cousins. Some of my best memories are from those times! It's safe to say that I'm counting down the days until I'm back. This particular image is from one of our days kayaking on a lake there!

I talked a little about my Easter in Atlanta a little in this post, but I love this photo too much not to include it. The flowers were gorgeous next to our brunch spot, so I couldn't resist taking this. Brunch was too good, by the way. If you're ever in the Atlanta area, Rise-n-Dine is a must.

Just like "Redneck Beach," the Iron Horse is another one of those random adventure spots in Athens. Basically, it's a giant metal horse in the middle of a huge cornfield. The thing that makes it fun is the people that you're with, considering the notion of a random structure in a field seems a little odd. Anyway, a group of us decided to go for sunrise and even though we had to wake up extremely early, the views and pictures were all worth it.

  4. The family had developed their Canelo vs ggg live fight country's finest two amateur boxers, twins trained in self-defence by their elder brothers during a war-torn upbringing. Only one could represent Kazakhstan at the 2004 Olympics and their parents, disregarding the younger twin's superiority, chose the eldest solely based on age.

    Max Golovkin's boxing career ended with that decision. Aged 22, he was the best prospect in Kazakhstan and won every tournament he entered - unless he stepped aside for his twin to share the limelight. That twin, Gennady, was now heading to the Olympics armed with just a handful of Max's in-ring ability.

    Karaganda, in local tongue, translates as "black city". The coal industry in Kazakhstan's fourth-largest city provided a humble Canelo vs ggg income for locals but, under Soviet rule, also meant the area was exploited for what little it was worth. A nearby military base meant the people of Karaganda had two choices for employment - the mines or the army.

    Is everyone in Karaganda bred tough? "Yes, absolutely," Gennady Golovkin exclusively told Sky Sports. "I like the people of Karaganda. People are smart, they are true people - not fake."His father was a miner but his two elder brothers joined the army.

    Vadim and Sergey taught their younger, twin brothers how to defend themselves with their fists - Gennady and Max became a handful buoyed by a fascination with late-night American boxing, idolising Sugar Canelo vs Golovkin Ray Robinson.Vadim and Sergey died in action in the early-1990s with no explanation offered for their disappearance. Gennady and Max, now the elder statesmen in the family, took their fighting skills to amateur boxing tournaments across Eastern Europe.

    "He was very good, he was much better than me," Gennady remembered of his twin. Some claim, considering Gennady had 350 amateur bouts and lost just five. Just before the Olympic Games he said 'okay, maybe you try first'," Gennady recalled. "I said 'no, I'll try second'." The 2004 Games in Athens provided the Golovkin twins with bigger worries than nearly one thousand combined previous opponents.
