Currently rehabbing a torn hip flexor and ab so I haven't been able to kick much lately, but I guess what happens when you try to climb some mountains & do all the adventures in-between clanging bangers full time 😆
Sucks to miss out on opportunities this summer due to injuries, but it is what it is. I'm a bit high-octane and extreme person at times with challenging & pushing my limits, so learning when to and how to rest & recover more efficiently through an injury is something I definitely need to experience & feel the pain of, to truly learn and grow from at a core level (pun intended).
Even though the physical is taking some L's, the mental & emotional are not shooketh by any means, I’m hyped about my mindsets, and I’m excited to come back more patient, smart, and way stronger in so many ways from it all! 😉💪 Even when things don’t go our way, every day is still an amazing opportunity to learn, grow, and become a stronger version of ourselves!

Thanks @mrsistaa for the edit 🔥
Wildflowers by moonlight.
A spectacular evening in the mountains watching the moon rise over glaciers. Sometimes it's hard to believe these scenes are real. Even when you're standing right there yourself! 🤩
One of the best parts of camping in the wilderness is being able to see the insane amount of stars that fill the night sky, however not everybody has this opportunity. I invite you all to join me TONIGHT for the @eddiebauer Sleep Under the Stars Night event that they’ve put together. Tonight I invite all of you to sleep outside in whatever way possible whether it’s your porch, backyard, or whatever is comfortable as we share the same sky together for just one night no matter where you are 🤘🏼 PS @eddiebauer is also throwing in a few prizes for the event including a free trip, new gear, etc. so head over to their website EddieBauer.com for more details 😎 #sleepunderthestars #ebcontributor #findyourselfoutside
As Heath Ledger’s Joker would say, ‘why so serious?’. Wearing a piece of cloth on the face it’s obviously no one’s cup of tea, but that doesn’t mean we have to be all grumpy about it. Remember, do put on your face covering of choice, but don’t forget to wear a beautiful smile underneath it…! There you go, @drcuerda. It’s so mask better now!
Proteger nuestra salud y la de los demás no tiene por qué estar reñido ni con la estética ni con la economía. Existen en el mercado gran variedad de alternativas para todos los gustos y colores, y al alcance de todos los bolsillos… Y luego está la de @drcuerda, que al venir con sonrisa incluida, ¡pues es algo más-carilla!
Rust and clouds, pretty good light down south #olympusomd
Beautiful video of a wonderful city (film courtesy of the 2016 Aga Khan Award for Architecture).
Opened in 2014 and recipient of the 2016 Aga Khan Award for Architecture, the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) was established as a neutral, dynamic, civil and open space where people representing all viewpoints in society can gather and discuss significant issues. The Institute is anchored in a long-standing commitment to mutual understanding and high-quality research; to harness and initiate research and debate on public policy and international relations.
The IFI’s design is defined by the many routes and connections within AUB, interweaving the pathways and views within the campus to create a forum for the exchange of ideas - a centre of interaction and dialogue - at the heart of the university.
Reducing the building’s footprint by ‘floating’ key research spaces above the entrance courtyard to preserve the existing landscape integral to AUB’s master-plan, the IFI creates a new public space for the campus. Existing Ficus and Cypress trees on the site (aged between 120 and 180 years old) are integral to the design. The building emerges from the geometries of intersecting routes as a series of interlocking spaces for research, engagement and discourse.

This weekend only - over 50% discount on my most populair processing video: The White Mountain 🗻👍Don't miss out - link in bio👆 A collection of shots displaying some of my favorite weather conditions. Taken in New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Patagonia and Greeland. Who else has been to any of these places? 🤺
Out on the beach at Ramp 4 last evening enjoying one of the most beautiful storms I’ve seen in a long time. It developed right over us as a small shower and as it pushed offshore the show started...and what a show it was!
Sunday morning, April 5.
Pucci looking out. Have a great weekend!
This is a little glimpse from my last video when I was out on a roadtrip in the mountains to work on some photos. See full video on YouTube, link in bio ❤🦋🌞
Taking a break from summer to revisit a few intimate shots I took last winter on my first trip up north to the Canadian Rockies. Although it’s obviously a very popular location and one that I’ve seen countless photos from already, my favorite part of the trip was definitely the frozen methane bubbles at Abraham Lake.
The devastation in #Beirut is unimaginable. Local studios @plastik & @sainthoax have set up a relief fund to restore the neighborhoods destroyed by the blast. Please donate what you can—link in bio, or visit cru.mp/beirut 🙏
I spent 3 days editing my last video, and I enjoyed every second of it since it made me feel as if I was back at this magical place by the rivers and the mountains. I smiled through every scene.
Especially this night by the river was magical, and I think a part of my soul is still left there by the dancing water ❤
So a new video from the most beautiful days this summer is now up on my YouTube channel, link in bio 😀
Now, have the most wonderful weekend!! 🌻❤🌈
Much love to you all!
On my hike I ran into rattlesnakes, bears, and even once a mountain lion, but the only time I actually felt like I was in danger was the day this photo was taken.
It was a very hot day in the desert and I'd walked straight past a pretty crucial water source, I was totally in my own head and didn't even notice until a couple of miles later. I was around 8 miles from the next reliable water, and had just over half a litre left. For some reason, I thought I could make it at a push if I just rationed it well, instead of doing the smart thing and turning back. What I didn't factor in is that it was the middle of the day, and those 8 miles turned out to be completely exposed.
Around four miles later, my water rationing was not going very well. I only had a few sips of water left, and I was starting to feel the effects of dehydration (I was getting tunnel vision and started feeling pretty dizzy). With no shade in sight, there was no opportunity to stop and rest so I just kept on going.
At this point, I knew heat exhaustion was a danger. Half an hour later, I was starting to think about how I would go about getting help.
I turned a corner and thought I could see something manmade in the distance, but was pretty sure either my mind was just making it up, or it was an old building or something (meaning potentially shade at least).
I put my head down and kept walking towards it, mumbling pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease. But as I got closer to the old building, it stopped looking like an old building and started to look like a... gazebo?? with my friends under it?? drinking beer??? Definitely a mirage.
I walked into the mirage and came to the conclusion that this was in fact reality. Someone had driven out into the middle of nowhere, with a few coolers full of cold drinks and water to give out to hikers, and it completely saved me. I think it has to be the luckiest moment of my life.
Anyway, take away lesson is to just hike back and get water. I took this picture a couple miles post oasis, coming down into Cajon Pass (Mile 342)
This week I’m bringing back the virtual travels and taking you to my favorite island in the world... the ever so charming, chic, and alluring St. Barts. I’ll be showing you both the known and unknown treasures of this tiny island and I’ll be giving you a tour of my beach bungalow, Villa Palmier. Join me for some much needed beach time in stories this week. BYO rosé!
