Misty mornings wandering through Bowen Island. I’ve lived on Bowen my entire life and it’s a pretty awesome place to call home. There’s always an adventure to be had right in your back yard ✌🏼

After trekking for 5 days through the Andes, we were determined to get to Rainbow Mountain for sunrise. On our final day, we left basecamp at midnight to reach rainbow mountain by 5:30am (sunrise). At around 16,500 feet at 3am, we were hit by a blizzard while crossing the ridge leading to our final destination. We huddled together in the dark until the storm began to clear and the sun began to rise. These pink clouds greeted us for no more than 5 minutes before turning back to their usual grey.

Sunrise at Mt. Ijen was mind blowing.
The turquoise lake below has the same PH level as car battery acid... This is also one of two places on earth where you can see natural blue flames coming out of the ground. Earth is wild. .
PS. I accidentally deleted my entire Lightroom catalogue, so I’ll be struggling for new pics until I get home from Mexico in a few days. Thank god for backup drives ✌🏼

One of my favourite trips in the last few months was in Switzerland. We started our adventure in the city of Bern. The old town was so unique and interesting- definitely an awesome place to go exploring because everything is within a walkable distance 🏰

Off to Mexico today! Time for a bit of sunshine before I go on an epic 5 day road trip down the Oregon coast. Lots of photos are on their way ✌🏼

My last 12 months have been absolutely insane. I started traveling almost exactly a year ago. I’m in the process of making a video to show you all what went down. Stay tuned 😎

There’s something mesmerizing about waterfalls. With the falling water and the white noise, it’s so easy to fall into a daydream 💭

Meeting new friends in the middle of the Peruvian Andes. Alpaca are some of the weirdest/funniest animals I’ve ever seen. Herds of them roam the mountainsides and stare at you with a confused look as you walk past.
In the background you can see Ausangate- one of the tallest mountains in Peru.

Sunrise missions like this is what makes it all worth it. The 4am wake up, the motorbike drive through the rain- I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

As the sun rose over the horizon, we flew our little helicopter through the Swiss Alps. If you put your hands out the windows, your fingers would freeze within a couple seconds. I can’t wait to go back here.

One of the most spectacular helicopter flights I’ve ever been on- above one of the biggest active volcanoes in Hawaii. Seeing molten lava for the first time gives you a realization of how powerful the earth really is. Sitting in the heli, you could feel the heat from the 2000°F surface below. Wild.

One of the most incredible sunsets I’ve ever seen was spent on top of this mountain pass on the boarder of Italy and Slovenia. I’m definitely adding this place to my return list 🏔️🏔️🏔️

Hawaii so far has been absolutely wild. I can’t wait for the next few days.
To get this shot I had to wade out into the muddy pond in my underwear. Totally worth it tho

Wandering the beaches, swimming in the ocean, surfing, and taking photos with friends is the best kind of relaxing day 🌴🤙🏼👌🏼☀️

We spent hours trying to find the perfect little cluster of cabins in the hillsides of Slovenia. Finally, after an insane adventure, we found our perfect spot. It looked like a miniature village. One of the coolest little places I’ve ever been.

I’ve met up with an awesome crew in Hawaii. Stay tuned for some crazy adventures.
Also, Kevin the Llama says hi 👋🏼

Relaxing, still mornings on Lake Bled, Slovenia. A thin layer of mist covered the lake as the sun slowly rose over the hills. I’m pretty sure we ate pizza for breakfast after this. The perfect morning 👌🏼

Nothing like the Peruvian Andes to make you feel small and insignificant. I find the more exploring I do, the smaller I feel. Definitely in a good way.

Earth is filled with a lot of epic places and this is definitely one of the coolest. In the jungle of East Java, we went exploring to the base of this huge collection of waterfalls. The mist is crazy, so everything comes out completely drenched- including your camera (this is why I shoot on canon because of their weather sealing 😜). I hope to go back to this place at some point this year!

Beautiful warm nights at @mbvbelize 🌴
When in Belize, make sure to go snorkelling in the crystal clear waters (I touched a shark). After a long day exploring, this is the perfect place to come back to and relax as the sun goes down.

Sunrise drone flights in Belize. As the sun was just peaking through the island’s jungle, I took my drone for a low flight through the trees to try and capture some sunbeams. Using the @sandmarc drone filters, I was able to get the look I wanted.... until I flew my drone straight into a palm tree 🌴💀

This place > every other place.
We got to the top hours before anyone else, so we had the whole place to ourselves. I’ve seen a lot of wild mountains, rainbow mountain definitely takes the cake 👌🏼

Who wants to stay in this little cabin in Northern Italy?
I think a picnic followed by some frolicking would be the perfect way spend a day. 🥖🧀🍺🏃🏻‍♂️💃🏼

Mars or East Java?
This volcano gives you a whole new sense of how insignificant we are. It’s so unbelievably loud. it sounds like a fighter jet engine on full blast, constantly spewing gas and smoke out the top.

I think Bali is closer to heaven on earth than anywhere I’ll ever go.
If you go looking, you’ll find something absolutely mind blowing hidden around every corner. 🌱☀️

Just out here making friends with the locals ✌🏼🦌
If you’re ever in Japan, make sure you go to the Nara Deer park! All these guys roam free and aren’t afraid to come say hi 🌲

Some of the most jagged, cold, and biggest mountains I’ve ever seen were in the Swiss Alps. I can’t imagine a better way to end a trip in Switzerland than a sunrise helicopter mission.
If you could have a super power what would it be? Mine would definitely be teleportation 🤘🏼

Picturesque Swiss mornings in Lauterbrunnen. Every day the sound of church bells can be heard echoing through the valley, and the steady sound of the waterfalls on all sides of the town. Add this one to the bucket list 🙌🏼

I’m definitely going back to Bali at some point this year. Tagallalang is the best place to go for sunrise. It’s just a 15 minute motorbike ride from Ubud city. If you go early enough, you’ll have the whole place to yourself 🌴
