Meet the Everglades’ most famous resident: the American alligator!🐊
In my latest blog post, I share tips for exploring South Florida’s wild, watery wetlands (and the best way to see the hundreds of amazing animals that live and thrive there). Link is in bio!
Did you know the Himalaya mountain range is about 70 million years old?! It separates the Tibetan Plateau from the Indian subcontinent and spreads across five countries: Nepal, Bhutan, India, China and Pakistan. And the word 'Himalaya' means 'abode of snow' in Sanskrit.

Part of what makes Nepal so special is the friendly people.
We love this portrait by Michl Wrba, who shares the story of this man giving him an apple, telling him the Nepali name for it and then taking a portrait of him after this was shot. A simple yet beautiful encounter. That's what traveling is all about, right?

We met John Sharp the other day in London. An avid explorer, hiker and adventure-seeker, we are a bit hooked on John's feed if we're honest! His blog on cycling from John O'Groats to Land's End is super inspiring! We're already sketching out our trip.
This picture is from Sagarmatha National Park in Nepal - the country which continues to inspire us.
Sagarmatha is a UNESCO heritage site for good reason. Mountains, glaciers, deep valleys and of course... Mount Everest, it just makes your jaw drop.
There are 6000 Sherpas in 20 villages who practise indigenous resource management and have been helping conserve the area of the national park — which covers over 7000m and is home to rare species like the snow leopard and red panda.
Pretty incredible right?

It's always nice to take a pause at the end of the week to plan the next adventure. To pep yourself and your team/friends/family/dog up for the next mountain you are climbing... Meaning real rocks and that mission you're on at work.
Refuel then go go go! ✌
The legendary Tenzing Norgay - who we admire so much we named our brand after him (and look to his adventures for inspiration every day). This is Tenzing Norgay on an expedition to Everest base camp, 1969.

“The word adventure has gotten overused. For me, when everything goes wrong – that’s when adventure starts.” -#YvonChouinard
By that definition, this weekend was nothing short of an adventure! And I wouldn't have had it any other way 💙
(okay, maybe a warmer jacket would have been nice 😂)
Who's blitzing through Monday with style? ⭐
Our top hack for focus this week is to do 10 press-ups or sit-ups every 25 minutes of work you do. Get away from the screen, get fit, maybe start a trend?
Extra points if you do your exercise without telling your colleagues... they'll catch on after a few hours.
If you are afraid of being labelled the office crazy: grab a friend and do high-fives in between each press-up or sit-up. That's a shot of adrenaline and bonding all at once!
We reckon your brain will work ten times faster after a mini workout 🙌
You can even reward yourself after a few sets with a refreshing Tenzing...only 58 calories a can: so you already burnt it off!
Let us know how your #tenzingchallenge goes! 💪

Tras iniciar su segunda gira europea en enero de 2017 y cosechar sold outs a lo largo y ancho de todo el continente, el cantautor sueco #JoséGonzález regresa a #Madrid acompañado de la orquesta filarmónica The String Theory el próximo 1 de octubre gracias a #SONEstrellaGalicia . Será un directo especial en el #Teatro#LopedeVega , una noche íntima donde el artista interpretará su repertorio junto a la orquesta experimental que ya le acompañó en su visita a nuestro país en 2011.
Su obra en solitario comenzó con la publicación de #Veneer (2003), álbum debut con el que consiguió vender más de un millón de copias. Le siguieron "In Our Nature" (2007) y #Vestiges &Claws (2015), trabajo con el que González regresaba al estudio y con el que no ha parado de llenar salas en #Europa , América del Norte, América del Sur, Australia y Nueva Zelanda, incluyendo fechas en la Ópera de Sydney, el Walt Disney Concert Hall en Los Angeles, The Beacon Theatre en Nueva York y The Cirkus en #Estocolmo . En sus actuaciones no faltan temas de #Junip . Entradas en link en bio.
Photography Interview. Part 2.
What are your biggest photography/skiing challenges and how do you overcome them? 'Lighting within photography is arguably the most important aspect of taking a good photo and one of the biggest issues with taking photos in the mountains is that there is a lot of very bright sun lit snow, which can often be hard to capture. This means that getting the perfect shot can usually take a lot of fiddling around. It’s often the case that a photo you have taken may not look as good on your camera screen as it does on the computer, so always make sure you keep every shot! I would definitely say that sometimes trying to capture the snow is difficult but quite often achievable if you keep persisting and switching up your settings.
How is your skiing going?
In regard to my skiing, I have been out in the French alps for about 4/5 weeks now and my skiing has improved massively. I spend a bit of my time in the snow park trying to do tricks and at the moment I’m currently trying to learn how to ski backwards which is a lot more difficult that you could imagine. But it’s all a fun learning curve and I’m still having the best time.

Hammock naps and @wolosnacks on a basalt lava sand beach! There are always so many honu 🐢here and the palm trees make it an idyllic spot to stop for a snack and some sunshine on the drive between Kona and Hilo.
Not only do they have super cute packaging, but Wolo's tasty protein bars are packed with traveler-friendly ingredients like flaxseed, coconut oil and turmeric to keep our wanderlusting bodies happy, healthy and ready for adventure (or beachside hammock naps 🤗). #WoloSnacks#Wanderbar wolosnacks.com
Photography Interview. Part One.
We caught up with Sam Butcher, skiier and photographer, to see how he makes such dreamy snowscapes and why he loves skiing. 🙌
Why do you ski? 'Skiing has always been a part of my life. From a very young age as a family we always went on yearly trips to various places across the French Alps and my love for it grew from there. Skiing is unique, there is something about it that makes it completely different to any other extreme sport and I think that’s why so many people feel the same way as me.' ❄
What drives you in your photography work? 'For me it’s all about playing around with the camera and the settings, every photo you take is different so you need to experiment to get the nicest one. For me that’s where the fun lies and the enjoyment follows; that leads me to wanting to take more.' Photo by & Interview with Sam Butcher @samuelscapes
