In an age of carefully curated photography, edited to the point of disbelief, a point of picking apart perfectly pieced together pixels of digital phenomena... it’s nice to stumble upon and revel in the magic of an imperfect, unedited moment. May we all remember to rejoice in the unpolished, the flawed, the raw. // Just a few thoughts of mine after finding this photo in the archives - It spoke to the way I’ve been feeling lately! Thanks @garrison_rowland for the enlightening capture :)
If you've never taken a horseback ride through the rainforest, put it on your list! .
I laughed like a little kid when my horse started galloping up the mountain. The crystal clear El Limon waterfall ✨ at the end was absolutely beautiful! 🌴✨
some good light around eight-mile. hiking in the heat isn’t my favourite thing, just heat in general really, I operate better in the cold. tropical is fun for a minute but I’m ready for the snow, soaked up all the vitamin D needed for a long winter. we’ll see how long I last back home before getting restless again. always a bit restless. give it a couple weeks.
Visiting Cinque Terre with our friends at @uber was one of the most beautiful coastal regions we’ve ever seen. With tall, arching, and colorful buildings that hang into the ocean, it’s hard to ignore why this is such a prominent destination. #WhereTo#sponsored
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves 🌱🌞🍂❄️ #FreeSpiritCentral

A day of getting lost in the quiet streets of Madrid, eating the most amazing breakfast ever, getting spontaneous tattoos, and drinking tinto de veranos and eating tapas with good friends.
Ninguna otra ciudad me hace sentir más vivo. ❤️
Trek Day 4 – Namche (3440m, 74% oxygen) to Tengboche (3870m, 64% oxygen), 10km in approx. 4.5hours. I slept about 9hrs last night – must have needed it! Only about half the group appear at breakfast, the rest are too ill. I forced down my porridge and litre of water (which became the norm) before setting-off. The first part of the hike was the same as the previous day until just above Namche where we fork off and divert onto a lower path. It was mostly flat/undulating which was a nice relief and the views were similar to yesterday. A stray dog (very common) joined me for a while – it made me think of Chewie...except this dog was well behaved and it hadn’t even had any form of “training”. We pass a notable Buddhist Stupa in memory of Tenzing Norgay before a steep downhill to lunch in Phungi Tanga about 2h45m later. At lunch I need to use the worst toilet (at that point – things would get worse before they got worse!) I had ever seen – no bushes and I couldn’t wait. Think garden shed full of leaves with a hole in the floor overflowing with crap. I used my buff to mask the smell made worse by the sun. I questioned right there and then in the poo oven whether wetting myself may have been a better idea. I would echo Paul’s cries of “I need porcelain”. After lunch it was a 1hr45m constant ascent 600m up to Tengboche. Was it worse than the gruelling Namche climb? Maybe! A lot of people were struggling – you needed to constantly stop to catch a breath. Sun was blazing down. Put my camera away for the first time and just got my head down and concentrated on getting it over with. I made it in time for the service at Tengboche Monastery but it was cancelled because “monks are sometimes very moody”. I have a deep understanding of moodiness so that was fine. A few of us that had got there decided to go to the bakery instead. I promised myself I’d be careful with food as I didn’t want to fall ill and screw up my chances of making it but couldn’t resist a bit of chocolate cake. It tasted pretty good especially given the situation and thankfully I didn’t suffer any side effects! Feel quite disgusting now, I want a shower–only so much wet wipes can do. Oxygen 86%, heart 104bpm.
