The break of dawn in the highest peaks of Australia. A faint orange and yellow hue glimmers far from the horizon as we climbed our way to Mt. Koscuiszko (2228masl) in the middle of a frigid winter. Only planning to climb one mountain we ended up doing a winter traverse across two of the highest peaks braving subzero temperatures with windchills as cold as -15degrees celcius, and snow drift gliding on our already frozen boots giving us ice burns and the worst pain you could feel in your ankles. Though with everything that has happened, watching the sunrise at one of the 7-summits, seeing the small stream of light give color to the cold bare frozen landscapes of this part of the world— there wasn't anything more you could ask for, but simply grateful for the life that you have. - June 24, 2018 - •

Ultra Fast & Unlimited Wifi EVERYWHERE in the hostel. That’s how all hostels should be nowadays.
Weekends like this make it hard to go back to the hospital on a Monday...
I see you Kauai. I see you. 🤙🏻🤪

Đi đi anh, khi mà sức khỏe anh còn, khao khát anh còn và tâm hồn còn chưa mỏi mệt đến mức thèm dừng lại một nơi bến bờ nào đó. Đi thôi anh, khi anh vẫn còn yêu những ngày mưa, yêu trời nắng cháy, yêu từng hương bụi đường, cỏ cây vách đá của một vùng xa. Trời đất bao la, bốn bể là nhà, những dấu chân anh sẽ hoài còn đó và chẳng điều chi bôi xóa.
Welcome to the Blue City. Highlights during June include 40+ degree weather and afternoon storms that result in power outages across the whole city. Who needs AC or dinner anyway? But in all seriousness this city has been pretty wonderful. With views like this, incredible textile shopping and spicy samosas, the power outages don’t seem so bad 😬

"When I feel threatened, vulnerable, or insecure, whether it from simply walking into a room of unknown people, meeting someone for the first time, an unexpected or expected confrontation, or doing something new, I affirm in my mind (over and over): There is no danger, there is no threat. From there, the discomfort lessens and I become open for discovery and adventure." ~~Charles F. Glassman

👐🏽 Strong Sunday 👐🏽
Think back to a time in your life when you felt most #strong
. Physically and mentally on top of your game. What was happening in your life?
For me it has always come from facing obstacles, having a strong support system, and walking away a better person. . .
This backpacking trip last year wrapped all that into one. With the altitude change, fear of bears, uphill climbing (both ways 😜), freezing temps, and lack of bathrooms/showers, it was easily the most mentally and physically challenging thing I’ve ever done. Of course I wanted to throw in the towel on day 1 and 2 when I felt like my lungs might explode and blisters were taking over my feet. But I was better for it. Thankfully I had 5 other amazing humans who shared the same journey, struggle, and amazingness of the earth 💕
Yours doesn’t have to be anything crazy like this (or maybe it’s crazier?) but it’s fun to reminisce on times like these and try to get back to that place ✨
