Have you ever been in tropical waters? 🏊‍♀️ @marta__sierra
If you have a favorite adventure buddy, comment below with their name! It can be any pet 🐶 @robybabcock
When I lived in West Africa, the most brutal time of the year was the Dry Season. From November through April, all rain would basically cease to exist and temperatures would soar. The landscape turned into a cloudless apocalyptic scene of dust and death. Lakes, wells, and rivers would dry up, pushing people and animals to travel farther and farther in search of a simple drink. I lived in a mud brick house with a tin roof, no running water or electricity. During the day, temperatures would consistently hit 100F+ (38C+). If you sat inside at midday, the house essentially turned into an oven. You could feel the heat radiating off of the tin and the only way to survive was laying under a mango tree with all of your extremities extended outward, (like a person doing a snow angel) to try to cool yourself off and limit the amount of sweat and water you were losing through perspiration. At night things weren’t much better. The mud bricks of the house would store up the solar energy during the day and release it at night, so the inside of my house would actually get hotter as the night went on. The only choice I had was to sleep outside every night under the stars, but I still had to ‘snow angel’ as there wasn’t any breeze and the temps would be well into the 90s still. Let’s just say I didn’t sleep very well for 6 months straight. The experience though totally tiring and miserable, was also rewarding. Seeing how close to mortality we all are and how powerful Mother Nature is, has led me to seize life by the horns and never take anything for granted. Oh and of course, Climate Change IS REAL and we need to get that whole thing under control. 😳
“Who am I that the highest King Would welcome me? I was lost but he brought me in Oh His love for me Oh His love for me. Who the Son sets free Oh is free indeed I’m a child of God Yes I am. Free at last He has ransomed me His grace runs deep... I am CHOSEN not forsaken I AM WHO YOU SAY I AM You are for me Not against me I AM WHO YOU SAY I AM” #thenwadventure #briskoutdoors #pnwonderland #seekthetrails #headedelsewhere #earthfocus #thegreatpnw #choosemountains #ourpnw #cascadiaexplored #travelstoke #thatpnwlife #hikingtheglobe #ourdailyplanet #pnwexplored #thisworldexists #staypnw #livewashington #werehikers #earth_unlocked #earthoutdoors #naturelovers #lonelyplanet #theoutdoorfolk #alltrails #discoverglobe #peopleinnature #hillsong #whyihike #staywild
Light from the sun takes eight minutes to reach us. Although this energy takes millions of years to travel from the sun’s core to its surface.
It's approximately 250ºF outside with 250% humidity today, and I'm sitting here dreaming of finding snow on a hike in Slovakia just over two weeks ago. Not only did I run around in this little snow pile, but also, Mother Nature dumped a bunch of actual snow out of the sky on us for the middle third of the route. (Is #throwbacktuesday a thing?)
That feeling of being above the clouds is second to none, looking out across the sea of white to other mountain islands reaching up towards the sky. Would this be your favourite thing to experience whilst hiking? @gebrianpavel taking in the views from Gokyo Ri in Nepal. Our team are excited to be heading back to Nepal at the end of the year, can you keep your fingers crossed that we get to experience some mornings like this? . . . ------------------------------------------ #thisworldexists is a community of travellers & explorers inspiring awareness and social change by contributing to and supporting improved education across the globe.

I loved the way the light brought out the blue in her eyes 👀
It was spring in New Zealand and I was on a photography tour. It was another early start to catch the best light as the sun kisses the Earth. We got to Lindis pass. Fog filled the landscape causing a complete white out. Unsure when it would lift we decided to trek on. We came to a secret spot known by our guide @brettwoodphotoart . When we arrived we had no idea what was about to be revealed, when the fog lifted. We were all a little apprehensive waiting for what was a stunningly beautiful reflection in an unknown waterhole filled with trout. Our jaws dropped to the crisp wet grass under out feet. This is the moment I fell in love with the New Zealand landscape. Snow capped mountains surrounded us. The only sounds you could hear were from the birdlife on the lake. I sat in silence taking in everything this incredible landscape had to offer. As I sit back and remember this moment in time, everything becomes clear. Chasing wild landscapes is where I need to be. Showing others the beauty of the world, how to keep it beautiful and respect our land. So it too, can change the lives and paths of many generations to come. . #BeIntrepid #MyIntrepidStory . @intrepidtravel @thetravelbootcamp . . #igtravel #gosomewhere #travelblogger #outdoors #explorer #welivetoexplore #lonelyplanet #instagram #wanderer #adventurer #getoutside #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #thisworldexists #AdventureInspired #canon #travel #passionpassport #resourcetravel #natgeotravelpic #bbctravel #doyoutravel #lonelyplanet #huffpost #yourshotphotographer #mytinyatlas
Surfs up down at Point Cartwright. Sunrise was amazing the shear force of the waves crashing and pushing up over the rocks was mesmerising. When was the last time you were mesmerised by the ocean? . . . #passionpassport #igtravel #lonelyplanet #instagram #wanderer #wanderlust #adventurer #getoutside #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #thisworldexists #AdventureInspired #wanderout #special_shots #theoutbound #ig_longexposure #justgoshoot #globalcapture #outdoors #traveller #photograph #ontheroad #roadtrip #blogger #welivetoexplore
Descending the knife-edged ridge from the summit of Triglav in Slovenia. The cables are quite convenient in case if you were to trip while taking in these stunning views! 🇸🇮 . . #sLOVEnia #triglav #julianalps #europe #mountaineering #viaferrata
This one time at cave camp
Each night the Golden Temple provides food and shelter to everyone. Beggars, locals, and travelers alike all sleep together on the floor lining the hallways.
Don’t worry ya’all we did finally make it to Alaska 🙌🚐 First stop-Wrangell-St Elias National Park. Being the largest national park in the USA, we were only to scratch the surface of this beauty and damnnnn we already want more 🤤#needabushplanestat #andafloatplane #rootglacier #wrangellstelias
My summer hasn’t started yet, but I’m a week, backpacking season will officially kick off me for! Who’s excited?! What sort of adventures do y’all have planned?
Honesty is one of the most fundamental aspect of being a good human being, it means whether you get involved with someone or start a career; you have to be sincere and honest about why does that matter to you. Yeah, the world is filled with corrupt politicians, greedy corporations and dishonest people who seek to make profit of anything they can find. Regardless of how people are around you, do the right thjnf even though you might be tempted for various reasons. Honesty is what helps develop trust & breaking that just once can have irreversible damage to us & our loved ones. What are your thoughts on honesty, is there anything else that you would focus more on while determining a social relationship with someone? Do comment if you like, take care. #instagoodmood #exploreeverything #agameoftones #supremeshooters #visualcreators #visualsoflife #teamnikon #fatalframes #follow #beautifuldestinations #justgoshoot #neverstopexploring #shoot2kill #killeverygram #way2ill #thisworldexists #made_in_nyc #makemoments #lovethiscity #visualsgang #keepitwild #neverstopexploring #onthego #theadventureproject #adventureculture #folkgood #awesomeearth #untoldvisuals #wanderlust
If you see a picture of me in the wilderness, I’m likely wearing black. Black suits me just fine, but more often than not, I selected black because the other offerings for women look to be inspired by tampon packaging. ----- “When I first started working in the outdoor industry, I was so excited to be surrounded by other smart, tough women—and I still am. But whenever I go to trade shows or industry events, I'm shocked at how solidly, stubbornly pink all of the women's options are—even gear for truly extreme sports, like mountaineering and ultra running,” writes Kate Worteck in her Elle Magazine article, “Why Should I Have to Wear Pink While I'm Hiking?” ---- It’s difficult to get excited about shelling out hundreds of dollars for outdoor clothing when most of what the industry offers women is needlessly gender binary. So why the lavender Osprey backpacks? The answer could be simply that the outdoor industry is outdated and hasn’t caught on to the fact that traditional gender classifications do not work anymore, especially among young people. As Justin McGuirk writes in “Why is outdoor gear so ugly?”, outdoor equipment “lives in a parallel design universe to the rest of us. It's like hi-tech architecture, but less tasteful.” ---- Read more in "Women's Outdoor Clothing Is Great If You Love Wearing Fuschia" at the-grandstand.com.

Real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. #livenow
Angels Landing in Zions National Park should be on your bucket list. I found it breath taking! Amazing views! #iloveutah #znp #angelslanding #rsa_ladies #utahphotographer #utahgram #werutah #hike #naturephotography #nature #beUTAHful #mightyfive #utah #lifeelevated
Find beauty in the little things, it may surprise you.

Attending language school in Florence for 4 months was one of the most challenging, unnerving, yet rewarding experiences of my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wanted to learn to speak Italian since I was a teenager. I couldn’t be any happier that I didn’t take the plunge until last November - I wouldn’t change a SINGLE MOMENT of my life because every minute led me to attending Linguaviva, in particular, and with these specific people. Saying that I adore my classmates and that school is an understatement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We found in each other, not only comradery in class, but also a support system throughout our time as expats. We made fast friends - all from countries around the world. From cappuccino breaks together during class to trying different eateries around town, movie nights at home or the theatre, dancing in discos until a couple of hours before class started, & weekends training it to cities throughout Italy. My absolute favorite - were our send offs the night before someone’s last day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was terrified that I wouldn’t catch up to some of the students who picked up on Italian so easily. Through diligence and the unwavering support over the months, we reached our goal to speak conversational Italian - all while gaining lifelong memories and friends along the way. Vi voglio un mondo di bene ragazzi. Grazie mille per una grandissima esperienza! Non vi dimenticherò mai! 🖤 . . . . #expatlife #languagelearning #firenze #florenceitaly #travelstoke #thisworldexists #adventureawaits #traveldeeper #exploremore #girlslovetravel #darlingescapes #girlsthatwander #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #ichosetowander #traveltheworld #welltraveled #wearetravelgirls #iamatraveler #igers_italia #travelawesome #lingua #seetheworld #globelletravels #momentsofmine #openmyworld #mytravelgram
Sunsets and signal towers
100% in my element.
we basically do this hike every weekend and it always takes my breath away 🐛
Good nights with great people!
The Caribbean or the Cascades? 🤔
Taken by the light.
Last nights view I snapped real quick on my phone on the way to Silver Lake in American Fork Canyon with @jordanrobert and the pups. #AmericanForkCanyon #visitutah
