Greetings from Patagonia  The scale of this glacier is hard to capture but imagine driving past a 70m tall building when all of a sudden 4 stories of it collapse in front of you, making normal speed look like slow motion  Shot on @sonyalphasa A7r-iii 16-35mm F/2.8 GM #patagonia #argentina #venturepatagonia •

@chelseakauai WHAT

I have to admit, Oribi Gorge wasn’t big on my radar until now. It resembles a lot of the beauty found in the Blyde River Canyon except you can actually dive into the gorge attached to a rope and swing yourself into the rush of a lifetime. Check out my stories to see what I mean 🤘 And so my trip with @meetsouthafrica comes to and end. Massive thanks to @9mmfilms_sa @emmett_sparling and @mrcalv for being such an awesome team to work with. Next up is @chelseakauai @samkolder and @janikalheit  Go check out what they get up to as we countdown to the National Instameet #instameetsouthafrica #meetsouthafrica #thisissouthafrica Tomorrow I depart to another bucketlist destination, who can guess where? Hint: It’s in the Southern Hemispehere and I heard there’s no better place to be during autumn

@marisahampe Wow love the greens in here 💚💚

I’ve always wanted to see the pigeons at Wilson’s Wharf and thanks to @meetsouthafrica I finally got the opportunity  When we arrived before sunrise, we weren’t exactly sure if we were at the right spot because there was not a single bird in sight. A local lady told us “just wait here, they’ll come... they come every morning”. Not long after they appeared out of nowhere, thousands of pigeons decorating the Durban Skyline, it was glorious! Go check out the sick video @mrcalv got of it. Have you heard of the National InstaMeet On 27 April!?

Gateway to the Mountain Kingdom... I finally had a chance to take a drive up the Iconic Sani Pass. We spent the night in Lesotho staying over at the @sanimountain lodge, the highest pub in Africa at 2874m  So who’s going to the National InstaMeet on the 27th of April!?

Meet Tugela Falls... the second highest waterfall in the world! It’s been a blast exploring the best of @southafrica with @emmett_sparling and @mrcalv and we’re just getting started! We spent the night on the edge of these epic cliffs, can you spot our tents? The Sentinel Hike to the top of the Amphitheatre is by far the best introduction to the Drakensberg, what are you waiting for? It’s time to @meetsouthafrica

@chelseakauai This was a great great day. Shoutout to your uncle’s street!!

I took a decent break from social and I only have one question... Why does it feel so damn good!? There are so many reasons why I love this platform, but also a ton that make we wonder why I’m still on here. I’ve decided to invest a little more energy into my Youtube Channel, with new videos uploaded almost weekly (check out my bio) if you like please subscribe! I’ll still be posting on here but I feel like my films can be appreciated more in landscape & fullscreen. Let’s start a discussion, what do you love about Instagram and what do you find annoying? •

@_fabiozingg So insane! Looks like you had a blast😎

@muenchmax Oh man this brings back tons of memories. I did the trek back in 2016. Have you passed the hot springs too? 😍

Oh hey, it’s been a while! Happy New Year!? Just returned home from the most amazing trip in the Himalayas. Nepal certainly bumped itself up into my Top 3 favorite countries. Too much to say in a caption but one thing is sure.. I will be back soon! Here’s a shot I took of @baking_ginger just outside the village of Tadapani. Shot on @sonyalphasa  I will post a before and after in my stories, let me know what you think in the comments #nepal #annapurna @sonyalphasa

@davidrocaberti Love the sunburst you captured 👍🏻

@rachstewartnz Happy new year my friend 💙

Earlier this year I traveled to a remote region in North Sumatra to film a story about Coffee Beans. With the project launching soon, I’m excited to share some images I took in between. We stayed in the city of Takengon situated next to Lake Tawar (pictured here) but for safety reasons we had to take a daily 2 hour trip to the remote village of Gegarang, home of the best coffee in all of Indonesia #aceh #gayo #coffee #indonesia
