Just hanging out about a km off snowy mountains hwy 👌
Madeira, an autonomous Portuguese island off the coast of Morocco, is one of my favorite places for hiking. I ran out of time to walk the entire track of the Ponta de São Lourenço, but even just seeing the first half mile of it blew my mind. This was the leeward side of the track; once I crossed to the other shore, winds screaming straight south from the Arctic almost knocked me over. .

Do you see the simplicity of their hands and the way you can feel their love for each other? ✨
Grow in the open air. Eat. And sleep with the earth.
Miscellaneous imagery from that day we got a bit lost. Not pictured: dog meat. Yup, I saw it. I had an emotional reaction to the sight of the roasted heads despite knowing in my mind that it's hypocritical to object to eating dogs when pigs are just as intelligent, loyal, etc... but I didn't get a picture, because the lady selling thought I was judging her and was shooing me away. So here's a lady with a fuckton of balloons instead!
Confession: I don’t keep a bucket list 😳🙈 There’s loads of reasons for this but one of the biggest is that I genuinely want to see every corner of this planet. I tried for years to prioritize places and I can’t. So, I would describe myself as an “opportunistic traveler.” I accept opportunities as they present themselves. This comes in many forms: a random sidetrack on a road trip, a solo trip to a country that wasn’t on my radar just because the price is right, or joining a trip that a friend is planning. That being said, seeing the Northern Lights would be on my bucket list if I had one. Seeing them dance across the sky was truly a dream come true. // Do you keep a bucket list?
throwback for old times’ sake:
one year ago today, waking up at Hakuna Matata Lodge in Rwanda. 🌴🍌🦋
a place so peaceful, the only sound you hear is the wind beneath the birds’ wings as they fly by. ✨
Thank you @bangkokbiketours
for providing a wonderful local Bangkok experience!
I have been traveling Thailand for 2 months now. Before this Samui and Phuket. I loved it but it was very catered to the tourists and community that now lives there. I failed to learn about much culture, history and local Thai people. Arriving in Bangkok I got a very New York, Japan and Hong Kong feel. Many places catered toward the people now here for business or tourism. Then I found this tour. It took us all through the nooks and crannies of Thailand. We went through ally’s, off the beaten path, through communities while learning all about culture and history. Black was an amazing guide letting us in on the local spots to eat and explore after dark. Anyone coming to Bangkok I suggest you take this tour day 2 of your trip! So you can get a real feel of Bangkok then scrap all your other plans to further explore the places from your bike tour. (Although maybe hard without your tour guide we tried) Next we booked a cooking class with them stay tuned! Get off the beaten path of tourism and explore the locals.

Catching the last light of the day
Ten inches of ice is plenty for #smallplanes
to start landing on the lake. And with the ice being free of snow, right now, ski OR wheel planes can land.
Here is Mike giving the signal to pilots flying over that Trail Lake is now safe for business!
Feeling pumped to roll this remodeled camper into the heartland - Kansas or BUST!! Introducing Pete to my gem of a hometown (#lfk
whatup!!), loving on my niece and nephew, and celebrating the holiday with my family is all that’s occupying my thoughts lately.
There’s so much hoopla around the holidays, and I’ll be the first to call out the absurd consumerism that surrounds these calendar dates. Let’s not forget to slow it down, enjoy time with friends and family, and be thankful for every moment ✨🍁
Enjoying Engetsuto rock formation and its unique sunset. We where amazingly lucky to have the sun setting just perfectly in the rock formation natural carving!

The fact that this roofless structure was practically sliding off the mountain side (note the erosion) did nothing to dampen the spirit of this rare co-ed adult literacy class. They had come from miles around, some departing their homes long before sunrise to attend. Within the rural and forgotten Haitian landscapes there is a tenacity and a deep desire to learn -I was there to bear witness.

Me after having to pose for a few photos.. Enough! 😁 I very much prefer to be the one behind the camera. That’s why you don’t see me on my photos too often. I’m also finishing my batch of photos from Gorlice and this wooden church on the photo looks so much better from the side! Go check out my last post (link in bio) to see it in its full beauty.
Tell me - where did you last see a wooden church?

Golden hour at the sea to sky gondola 🌄 #explorebc
As the first snow fall hits the ground here on the northeast coast, we find ourselves talking about which WARM and SUNNY greek islands we need to visit next and as soon as possible! 🔥☀️
As we try new things, take risks, do things on our own terms we keep having the same “ah ha” moment that all of this is about the journey and not about the destination. It doesn’t matter what the final destination or final goal is, as long as we are enjoying every minute of the journey and doing what we set out to do each day when we wake up. This mindset is so important in anything. There’s so many super successful people out there that reached their destination or goal but they are miserable because they didn’t reflect on the journey and what ultimately got them to where they wanted to be.
