I split up from my group of friends when hiking up these mountains and ended up walking over this ridge line to see the most incredible light rays I've ever seen. No wind, no noise complete silence with this view and no one else. One of my favourite moments from my recent South Africa trip.

The past couple of weeks have been wild for me. Started off my second time in South Africa with my first ever Burn experience at AfrikaBurn followed by my first backpacking trip through some of the wildest landscapes I've ever seen in my life. Now I'm sitting back and relaxing, reflecting on all the craziness here at @birkenheadhouse enjoying a cup of tea overlooking the ocean.  @theroyalportfolio

Today I reflected on an event that took place about a month ago. As I sat in the tracker seat on the dash of our safari vehicle I knew that if we come across any wildlife there would be nothing between me and the animal. I'd be fully exposed, but I was super down for that haha. We drove all evening and saw nothing, but just as the sun started to set we came across 2 massive elephants. Seeing these beautiful animals in person for the first time was incredibly surreal. Growing up watching lion king and seeing videos online of these animals does not compare to the real thing. The adrenaline was definitely pumping as the massive animal came close to our vehicle. I think I got more of a rush from this moment then when I've jumped from planes  we parked and watched them until it was pitch black out. Such a pure and perfect moment. Love these gentle giants. 
On a side note. It's really sad to see the population of much of Africa's wildlife decreasing. It's sad to think that animals are going extinct and that there may be a future where these animals no longer exist. Its hard for me to wrap my mind around how the human race can let something like that happen. Thankfully organizations like @vetpaw and amazing humans like @timothysykes exist to help protect against poachers and any animal threats. Happy Earth Day!

I can't describe to you the feeling of walking over the biggest sand dunes in the world and seeing this place. DEAD VLEI, meaning 'dead marsh' what used to be a pool of water allowing for trees to grow dried up 600-700 years ago and left these insane skeletons of the trees. A moment where I had to sit down and seriously take in where I was. Wearing @suspiciousantwerp

If you want to live an exceptional and extraordinary life, you have to give up many of the things that are part of a normal one.

A humbling experience standing next to these guys back in johannesburg, South Africa. Also really cool seeing first hand the efforts people are putting in to help grow the population of many endangered animals. After the last northern male white Rhino died just 3 days ago, these efforts are more important than ever.

Up on the sandy hills near our resort in Namibia last week overlooking an insane sunset. No phones, no distractions, a moment spent fully present and in awe of how insane the world is that we live in 
Also, this is @chelseakauai . I spent a bunch of time travelling with her this year and not only do I look up to her as an artist but as a role model in my life. Chelsea is a caring and compassionate person that puts others before herself and always does her best to leave a positive impact in the world. She regularly volunteers to help others in need as well as helping the environment. She's actually on Big Island right now helping clean a beach! Just some of the reasons I have so much respect for this girl :) If you're not following her now I highly recommend you go do that!! :) thank you @gondwanalodges for hosting and for the incredible adventures! :)
