I wish I captured the moment when we were standing here looking at all the Japanese Macaques in the onsen when a cheeky little baby monkey lost the plot. He was screeching and splashing around madly, so the Macaque you can see sitting see on the edge reached in, grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and threw him out into the snow! Absolutely ruthless!! Guess the little one learnt to behave himself in the hot springs that day 😂
Spending less time kiting and hanging out at the beach isn’t something I do lightly...but we’ve been working on quite a big project for the last few months...Permission to occupy granted - moving into @thedreamhouseproject is now a reality! 🍾🤗😱🏠🇰🇾🥂
Another from the archives: This was from my very first camping trip back in Jan 2015. I remember I had just upgraded from a small DSLR to my first full frame camera and I was so eager to get out and shoot absolutely everything. Whilst there are many things I would do differently if I had shot this now, I love this moment because it was this night in particular, and the rest of the trip that sparked my love for sleeping outdoors. Waking up above the clouds was such a beautiful experience ⛰
De beste pauze tijdens het ploeteren aan je meesterproef? 💻 Even een wandeling maken langs het meer, genieten van het prachtige uitzicht op de bergen en dan totaal verwaaid weer langs de open haard kruipen om op te warmen. 💦 📷 @beauvanderijdt
You’re in the wilderness exploring with your kiddos and you come across this.... 👙
What’s the BEST line you can come up with that explains what is happening here.... 🤘

I have met a ton of people from all over the world on Instagram. It’s actually my favorite part of this platform. And I get a lot of DM’s from people asking me how they can spend some time living in New York City for an extended period. And my response? By finding an internship with @theinterngroup, of course! …
It’s a great way to be able to live in New York City and gain professional experience at the same time! Click on the link in my bio for more information!
Does this qualify for a “yellow brick road” analogy, or should I stick to your standard “why did the chicken cross the road” play? Need some help upping my caption game.
Tell which way you’d go. #captionthis
"You never really leave a place you love...Part of it you take with you, leaving a part of you behind." ☙
✧The best part about leaving the city you love is that returning becomes the sweetest feeling. Have you ever moved somewhere thinking it would be just another transient year of your life, then unexpectedly, end up being transformed and empowered by the people and experiences? ✧
Falling in love with a city is perplexing to say the least. The excitement of a new place when you first arrive propels you to explore every bucket-list attraction, restaurant, and scenery. You look forward to every morning because new adventure and experiences await at every street corner. Even the evenings after work are packed with happy-hour destinations and bus rides chasing after sunsets.
Then as the initial first-love passion fades away, things no longer seem so fresh. Instead, a sense of familiarity sets in. You've learned the ins and outs of all the winding roads and alleyways; you know the names of all your favorite parks, boba joints, and downhill streets. You've formed friendships. 💕 You start seeing yourself not as a tourist in the city, but as a part of the city itself. Before you realize, you feel like you've always belonged there and already know the city as your home.
San Francisco was that city for me -- the city I fell in love with and also changed me for the better. It taught me how little a person really needs to live contently. It taught me some people are meant to stay in your life; others pass by to teach you a valuable lesson. It taught me -- true friendship crosses time-zones and distance.
Moving forward means, in some sense, letting go of the past. But this place that had given me so many wonderful memories will always be 'home', even if it's miles away from my roots, from my whereabouts -- that's the most beautiful part of it all. ⁓⁓⁓⁓
God works in unexpected ways. Who knows, maybe someday I'll be coming back. ♡ 💫 #SheDreamtSheWent

Being made to climb isn't something that happens overnight. Its a process that takes many years and hours of mastery. Being made to climb is a mindset of going further than you dreamed, higher than you imagined and trying harder than you thought was possible. Watch Kailas athlete @dannyclimbs7 reach for his potential during the first ascent of a V12 boulder in Utah, USA. 💪#madetoclimb
A rainy day in Suzhou did not dampen our plans to visit Shantang Street and walk its alleys, and instead provided a sort of calm and sleepy vibe 😪 We came at the start of China's Spring Festival week, which meant heavy crowds and limited selection of open shops. Nonetheless, it's been a ride navigating this country with limited internet and taking our chances with the menu. More to come on the blog soon! 🤓💻
If you’ve ever drove into the Rocky Mountains of Canada from the east, then no doubt you’ve seen Mt. John Laurie aka Mt. Yamnuska by the Nakoda.
The sheer cliff makes it one of the first highly noticeable landmarks entering the mountains. A wonderful day hike allowing the adventurous to experience the use of chains and a true traverse in under 5 hours!
