Livin’ the dream Say what you do | Do what you say

The odds were stacked against us for this one. We arrived a day prior and attempted to reach the cave but were stopped by high tides, big waves and lifeguards. We quickly became Google experts on how the tides change and made sure to get in the cave before sunrise, while making sure not to stay much longer than to see some color as tides were quickly rising, lifeguards get on duty early, and our camera gear is far from waterproof if we get stuck. We made it.
If they aren’t pushing you forward they are slowing you down.
This shot alone proves the value in breaking off from the traditional path and being different. As we pulled up to this location, I remember rushing to the typical shot right between the trees with the Golden Gate Bridge in the middle. It wasn’t long before I realized @codycm was no where to be found. We stole his shot. Turns out, that was the best thing we could have done. After about 5 or 10 minutes of scouting, Cody set up 30 feet back and said “hey guys, trust me on this, when I say jump - JUMP!”. This turned out to be one of my favorite shots from the entire trip, and it’s all because Cody wasn’t basic like me. There’s always a new angle to be found, so find it.
I’d rather be optimistic and wrong than pessimistic and right. This shot was taken as we took off on a helicopter ride just outside of San Francisco. I remember it clearly. The night before we were calling all the helicopter companies we could find. Everyone was either booked for sunset or they didn’t have a chopper we could take the doors off of. Perhaps after a handful of calls we got lucky and booked the only sunset doors off flight at this tiny helicopter company about 25 min outside the city. Fast forward to the next day, and we arrived just in time to meet the most badass female pilot, we get to take the doors off of the chopper ourselves, and we caught arguably one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen. I guess the moral of the story is to make the call.
Despite being used to spontaneous traveling, Mexico was a unique trip. The whole thing came about after posting on my story “who wants to go to Hawaii?”. I got a DM from @albulet (who I’d never actually met before) saying she was planning a trip with a few other “creatives” and needed help sorting out the details. Fast forward a few months and we had everything booked, sponsors on board and still had never actually met. The first time I met the people I’d be spending 10 days with was at the airport in Mexico. While I was a bit nervous, I’ve begun to find comfort in meeting new people in unique ways. I walked away with 5 new friends that I feel I’ve known for a lot more than 10 days and will keep in touch with until I’m old and grey. The short takeaway: Calculated risks are always worth it. Trust your gut and do something crazy.

If you are the median of the 5 people you hangout with the most, are you happy with those you call your best friends? This photo was taken during one of my most memorable travel moments to date. We woke up well before sunrise, drove to a pin that my friend shared and said “go here, ditch the car, and follow the trail. You’ll know when you’re there”. After a half hour of walking through the dark woods, up a mountain, and sunrise nearly happening, we started running to beat it. Not more than 5 minutes later we stumbled into an open field just above the cloud line and sunrise before us. WILD. ----------------------------------------------------#Wildernessculture #watchthisinstagood #travelawesome #welivetoexplore @naturevisuals #destinationearth #nakedplanet #liveoutdoors #tourtheplanet #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #theglobewanderer #ourplanetdaily #earthpix @earthpix #aroundtheworldpix @followmefaraway #awesomepix #bestplacestogo #fantastic_earth #bestvacations #awesome_earthpix @discoverearth #epicexploring #lifeonourplanet #awesomeearth #earthofficial #MoodyGrams #way2ill #instagood #beautifuldestinations #earthpix
