Yesterday Cape Town experienced some of the craziest weather we have seen in a long time. It started with a thunderstorm during the afternoon in 30c plus heat, which then turned to heavy rain, and then some hail and back to thunder and rain in the evening. A massive supercell moved in over the city and lightning and rain came down for hours. I just happened to have been at the right place to watch it all go down. This shot has been 3 years in the making and finally last night all the elements came together in perfect unity ⛈

A life of adventure.
One time I read a comment critiquing people who frame their posts as “adventurous” when they’re simply posting from a local park, or driving up the coast.
It made me sad.
You see - I grew up in the forest and every day after breakfast my mother would scoot us outside saying “go out and adventure!”
I knew those woods like the back of my hand, but even still there were always places worth exploring, things worth discovering, worth unveiling, worth wondering.
You see – adventure culture isn’t about privilege.
It isn’t about vacation with pay, or sponsored trips to the tropics, or alpine ascents (though, for some, it is).
Adventure culture is a spirit of curiosity and awe
Its approaching the everyday - and the fantastic - with boldness and grit.
I work at a homeless shelter, and every day is an adventure
My daily view doesn’t fit the aesthetic of outdoor magazine ads or travelogues
But every day I get to explore new corners of peoples’ hearts,
Every day I get to see young people overcome daunting obstacles
Every day I get to catch a glimpse of the breathtaking beauty that exists even in the darkest corners of our city.
These vistas inspire me to climb higher,
to reach for more.
How do you embrace a spirit adventure in your daily routine?
