Who knew a cemetery could be this beautiful? 🍃🕊
It’s Andromeda season! I debated posting this because I’m not totally happy with it, but at my current skill level with deep space objects, I guess this is still pretty good. I started the session for this a bit too early in the night when it was low on the horizon so I ended up with exposures that we’re battling atmospheric haze. Had I waited a few more hours, it would have been high enough in the sky to produce cleaner images. On the other hand, I’m really happy with my polar alignment on this—pretty clean 5 minute tracked exposures!

Perfect balance | I can’t believe that I’m headed back home tomorrow after seven weeks of traveling.
No shortage of epic shorelines to go for a stroll on in Hawaii.
The only animal on Earth to be both elegant and goofy. We should strive for this everyday of our lives 😜🦒🌍❤️
Ollimon, my baby🦈 from snoozin’ 😴 in the pool, to swimming in the lake, to practicing his freestyle stroke, dis baby is going places🏃🏽♂️🐠🚣🏼♂️
Every year the Mara river undergoes migratory paths across Kenya all the way to the Serengeti in Tanzania. Thousands millions of Wildebeests, zebras dare to cross the Mara to reach greener shoots, increase their chance of survival.
Back when drones weren’t exactly commercialised, I shot this whilst being in a hot air ballon some while back. Having grown up in Kenya during my childhood, it’s a picture which truly characterises only a part of the beauty of this dream like country. Staring back at it, it kind of feels like home and has a familiarity, only part of an identity. ———————————————————————-

The elegant and family-owned @lenoxhotel
has been a Boston icon since 1900. Watch our story for a tour!👆Fun fact: it was once the tallest building in the city. #backbayboston
I know I said I’d finished posting from the Northern Territory but you all knew I’d be back! 😉 How can you stop when it’s so endlessly beautiful?! ☺️ Taken on a Yellow Waters Cruise in Kakadu, if you ever visit this is a MUST do! @kakadutourism #DoKakadu
Watching the waves roll in on Naked Island. 🌊 This is a paradise, but one thing Instagram doesn’t do is show you just how suffocating the heat is. The colors are gorgeous and overwhelming and I love being in places like this, but the humidity really drains you (and you get sunburned!). 🌴🔥
Here in Finland, we have a saying: "Man can leave from Lapland but Lapland never leaves from him." I've lived all my life here but... I see the point. 😉
I’m addicted to being disconnected.
No service, just real conversations and company. No kitchen or dining in a packed restaurant, just a campfire and fresh fish. No makeup or mirrors, just a ball cap and comfort in not having to worry what you look like. This is my happy place.
Czekałam na ten widok 😍
Dziewczyny, dziękuję za wszystkie wiadomości na temat tego, co zabrać nad nasz piękny Bałtyk. Pakowania nie było końca, ale udało się! Maluchy spokojne, przeżyły podróż bez lamentów i histerii, spały, jadły, bawiły się. Sami jesteśmy w szoku, że wyszło tak lajtowo. 😏 (Psychicznie szykowaliśmy się na najgorsze sceny buntu i zmęczenia 🙈🙉🙊). Zostawiam Wam ten piekny widoczek i życzę miłego dnia! Napiszcie, co porabiacie, czy jesteście w domku czy na urlopie? Buziaki 😘

I've come to the realization that traveling sucks! Well, actually, it sucks for most people. Throughout my travels, I've gotten a good feel for what kind of travelers you'll encounter on the road....
(1) Vacationers: People who need to get back to their jobs so that their bosses don't fire them
(2) Wanderlusters: People who travel without a care in the world. Well, that is, until they reach the day of their plane ticket home...
(3) Those Living Off Mom & Dad: We all know them. The people that care too little, spend too much, and seek attention, but we can't take them seriously because they have zero responsibilities.
(4) The Minority: We are the people that have figured out a way to turn our passions into reality, not just for the short term, but for the rest of our lives.
On your next trip, take a look around. You'll see a whole bunch of "wanderlusters" who are holding on to that last bit of freedom before they have to go back to work, make their boss a ton of money, and go home to dinner and sleep.
All the while, the few who have figured out how to make their dreams a reality are able to travel while doing their thing: helping others achieve their ultimate goals of following their dreams and passions for the rest of their lives.
What kind of traveler are you? I know which one I am!

Golden hour in Golden, BC. 👌🏽 Everyone I would like you all to meet Andy. Every town needs an Andy and Golden, BC has this Andy. He manages the @tourismgolden
page and is an all round local legend. I had heard about Andy before I even got to town, that’s how much far his status goes. It really seems to me that everyone knows him in town, it could be just a #GoldenBC
thing as this is such a rad small BC community focused town but I think it’s also just because Andy’s awesome. So go check out @tourismgolden
and please do me a favour. Go say hi to Andy for me. Just ask around town. They all know him. @hellobc #ExploreBC @kootrocks #GoPro #Kootrocks
