Making the most out of a 20 hour layover in San Francisco 🤙🏼

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 🌴

Epic afternoons trekking through the Peruvian Andes.
At around 16,500 feet above sea level, the air is so thin that you find yourself out of breath doing simple things, like rolling over in your sleeping bag, or brushing your teeth. Now imagine what hiking a mountain does to you 😅 Definitely one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.

Epic evenings next to Mount Fuji in Japan 🗻 You need to go here to really understand the size of this mountain. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
Also I’ve been wide awake since 5:30am because I’m super jet lagged from Switzerland 🇨🇭😛

Heading home for a few weeks with no plans in mind except to make a video of my last 12 months. Any suggestions on where to go next?
I’m in need of a return trip to the most beautiful place I’ve ever been.

This morning was one of the coolest experiences of my life. The numbing cold and high altitude makes you feel so alive. I think I need to buy a helicopter... @myswitzerland

Last night we slept in an igloo on top of the Alps. Everything was absolutely silent and the stars were insane. This little hut was next to our igloo- it had a fire inside to keep us warm while everything froze outside ❄️🏔️✨

Crazy to think this was only a couple of days ago with @astrumheli.
Also this was probably the easiest photo I’ve ever edited because this is almost a RAW image. It’s actually this crazy looking in real life 😍

Calm nights over Mount Fuji. We were supposed to leave after sunset but everything was too perfect to walk away from ✨⛩️

Very eventful/stressful night last night, however everything is okay. Check my story to see what was happening- nothing like an earthquake and tsunami warning to end off a trip 🌊
Anyway, here’s a pic of one of my favourite places on earth 🌎

Definitely one of the coolest places I’ve taken a nap. Tag someone you’d nap here with 😜
Huge shoutout to @mbvbelize for hosting us at their gorgeous new resort! This was just one of many cool spots at their place. 🌊☀️

It felt like we were in Italy for 15 minuets before we found this ‘Spirit Island 2.0’. Definitely started Italy off with high hopes. I’m heading back to Europe next week and I’m super excited to go on some snowy adventures! ❄️ If you haven’t already, check out my portrait page @emmett_portraits 🤙🏼

California sunsets are some of the best I’ve seen. This rock loves you 🧡 has anyone seen this heart rock before in San Fransisco?

Starting off 2018 with one of the coolest adventures I’ve done yet. @astrumheli flew us around the Great Blue Hole and other super cool spots in an epic, doors-off, heli ride. 🚁🌏

I went for a wander down the beach during sunset with no goal in mind. I found this sail boat tied up to an old dock that had been destroyed by a hurricane a few years ago. The entire scene felt like a dream. (yes, the birds are real)

Sunrise on the water is amazing. It’s the time of day when the water is most still and hardly anyone is around.
We saw stingrays and sharks swimming around these little huts the night before 😅

405💬

Definitely the best waterfront view around 😍 New summer home anyone?

Who wants to have a hammock slumber party in here? The bottom of the dock was lit up so you could see manta-rays and sharks swimming underneath. You can see the super-moon rising in the background 🌝

Happy new year everybody! One last moment from 2017: Definitely my favourite memory of the craziest year of my life so far. Sunrise at rainbow mountain was the most spectacular experience. I have never done so much to get the shot, but I think it was worth it. Check out my story to see a behind the scenes video from this sunrise 🌅 🌈

Finishing off the year with another favourite memory of 2017:
It was raining all day and we only had one chance to see one of the most picturesque churches in Italy. We sat in our van and waited- drinking tea and watching movies until one of us poked our heads out the window to see the clouds were clearing...

Another favourite memory from 2017:
@philngyn and I woke up at 3 am to get in line for the bus that would take us to Machu Picchu for sunrise. Machu Picchu is still one of the only places that has actually left me speechless with its epicness.
Another memory from here was getting devoured by insects... I’ll definitely be wearing bug spray next time 😅

Another highlight from 2017:
We saw the sky begin to light up- we knew this would be an epic sunset. We raced to the top of the hill behind this Pagoda, overlooking the city and the most symmetrical mountain I have ever seen. Afterwards, none of us really knew what to say because we were all mind blown from how beautiful it was 🔥☀️🏯

Another one of my favourite moments from 2017. At around 16,000 feet in the Peruvian Andes, @philngyn and I were unknowingly camping next to this herd of alpaca. We woke up to some curious visitors... tag someone who needs an alpaca in their life 🦄

Another one of my favourite moments from this year. Waking up for sunrise has never been so rewarding. Take a look at my story for a behind-the-scenes view!

As the year comes to a close, I’m going to be reposting some of my favourite photos from 2017. This photo is from my first adventure of the year- Oaxaca Mexico.
2017 has been the best year of my life so far and I can’t wait to see what adventures 2018 has in store. Thank you all for making this crazy year possible.

Perfect mornings in front of the most perfect mountain in the world 🗻 If you’re thinking about going to Japan, I wouldn’t hesitate. Check out my story for a before/after!

One of my favourite places in Vancouver. Whytecliff park is perfect for hanging out with friends at sunset. If you’re lucky, the tide goes out far enough to walk to the little island 🌊🏔️☀️

The first snowfall in Vancouver has turned all the mountains into a winter wonderland. I can’t wait for more snowy adventures 👌🏼❄️⛄️

Nara Japan is a fairytale. Little herds of deer running around, autumn colours and perfect streams flowing though the forest. This little guy came and said hello 👋🏼 🦌
