I broke two spokes 100 miles from a bike shop in any direction. When I got to one, it was closed. It's not going to stop me though! Tomorrow I'm going to bike the largest hill on the coast with a patchwork wheel. Wish me luck!
Wisdom Monday. 👉🏼

Hope your Monday is off to a great start!

When I decided to dedicate posts to the trips and to the people who have helped me on my path, I immediately knew that my trip to Iceland in December 2014 would be at the top of the list. I fell in love with Iceland when I saw the film “Heima” in 2009 at my colleges film festival. It was a documentary that followed the band Sigur Ros around their home country playing a series of unannounced shows in venues and flower fields— in snow, and in their homes. It was so moving. The culture, and of course the stunning landscapes. That was it… I heard the calling, and I knew I had to go… but I placed it somewhere unobtainable in my mind and said, “One day”. Before WOW Air started advertising $69 flights, and before every one I knew changed their profile pic to The Blue Lagoon… it seemed harder to travel to, especially since I had no real travel experience to speak of at the time. All I knew is that my soul found every opportunity to lure me closer. The synchronicities were piling up and the excuses were fading.
After one decision, and a trip across the sky, I stood next to a black river cutting through a snowy landscape lit by the glow of Icelands golden winter sun. I looked at my watch— it was 2:17pm on a Tuesday and I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be.
Even though Ive been shooting since I was 9, it was on this trip that I truly fell in love with light. It was on this trip that my heart knew what it wanted to become.
I knew I wanted to be an adventurer (even though I didn’t believe I could at the time). I wasn’t on social media much during this trip, but one post did manage to find it’s way to me… the one in which Cory Richards (@coryrichards) announced he was leaving The North Face. “The unknown can be a scary place. When we let go of comfort and surrender the magnitude of possibility, we are immediately met with fear. That fear becomes our catalyst for exploration, pushing us in directions we never imagined. I’ve had five amazing years exploring the planet with The North Face. I’m thankful for all of it. That said, I’ve chosen to move on…” I felt like a torch had been passed, and I’ve dedicated myself since then to running with th
"Wander"-Urlaub auf #Mallorca - das wahr manchmal mehr freestyle klettern statt wandern. Leider, aber zum Glück, viel zu kurz. Unser Hotel war in Cala Rajada im Nordosten. Nur drei Tage später gab es in der Region ein verheerendes Unwetter. #urlaubmitmutti#wandern#woistderweg#eigenewege
Hiking vacation in Mallorca - sometimes it was more freestyle climbing than hiking. Sadly, but fortunately it was too short. Our hotel was in Cala Rajada in the Northeast. Just three days later there was a devastating thunderstorm in the area.

Planning the next vacay already while reminiscing our last one. 😸😹
Antelope Canyon ---- we got super (un)lucky with topical rainstorm Rosa on this trip, which fortunately didn't really cost us any major sight I had been wanting to visit but we did have to shift things around here and there during our stay in Page. Flash floods were forecast on the day of our reservation for Antelope canyon. Not willing to taking any chance, we decided to ditch our original tour and found a company that had a few spots left in their afternoon tour to the lower antelope canyon the day before. The tour worked out perfectly (and the day after rained all day long). Slot canyons truly are something special that everyone should visit once in their lifetime (even on a cloudy day)!
Waited at the top of this mountain for two hours with zero visibility. Eventually the sky opened up, right at sunset. Sometimes you just have to believe something will happen.. you’d be surprised how often it does
I asked him if we could slow down
“Can we sit here for a minute?”
He grabbed my hand a little tighter and dragged my body a little further
“Are you tired or are you afraid?”
The tickle in my tummy and my shifty eyes gave me away
“Life doesn’t get less scary babe.”

Another completely fake 3d rendered object I made.
I know.. not exactly the images of the century.. but it demonstrates how a particle system of about a million components can represent fluff.
Its file name is Chris Towel.jpg, which I think is pretty funny. #ifyouknowyouknow

COMING HOME // @jackwolfskin
There is nothing better than a place called home. For me, the home that was mine at 2 years old is still the place I call home at 21. A place where wildflowers grow tall in fields and snow covered hills turn into a day of sledging and playing with dogs. Where the sun sets behind the trees and turns the green grass into an orange sea. Where cloud inversion fills the valley at sunrise and frost crunches underfoot. Cobwebs sparkle in the morning dew and the birds start to wake as the new day comes alive. A place where dogs bark to a schedule of being let out and snowdrops grow on the verge. Home.
It's been a while since I've visited the Lake District, I feel like it might be time to shoot over this weekend and have a little adventure 🤓
In other news it's getting cold and that means one thing, Cords and Jumper season, yaaaas 😍
Каждое утро облака падают на землю, и мы с Ежиком идём бродить♥️ я надеюсь увидеть лошадь, пока ее нет, но я не сдаюсь!
Цветов ещё столько: хочешь тебе клевер, хочешь ромашки, колокольчики, незабудки. И мне кажется, а вдруг завтра этого уже не будет? И было ли в прошлых годах это все в середине осени...
