Have you ever been to a place and thought “wtf I can’t believe this place exists?” 💭 That’s happened a few times for me- Machu Picchu, Rainbow Mountain, Antelope Canyon, and most recently Santorini. ✨ You always see the pictures on Instagram or your desktop, but I don’t think you can truly understand or appreciate it until you’re there in person. Sometimes I get emotional thinking about the things I’ve been lucky enough to do or see. Like I’m talking tears 😂 Apologies for the sappiness, I’m just feeling really damn thankful today.
As an answer to my garbage bag worries I got a repurposed bag (made out of trash) full of repurposed trash bags from the volunteer group Beach Guardian Prachuap Khiri Khan. I became so happy that I can't even find the words!!!💖🤗🌏 I think the three bigger bags are former rice bags and the tinier one has been made out of something similar. Now I only have one tiny problem.. I don't dare to use them since they mean so much to me 💖😂 I'm planning to take them with me to Finland since I keep on finding plastic bags from the ocean and beach here every time I need one. In Finland I can use these forever since the material is very durable and washable 😀 We also made key chains out of trash with local children at the stand of the Beach guardian PKK. I just love these people to the moon and back 💖 In the first pic I pose with the Eco Artist Pom from Phuket (she makes art from trash and in the last pic there's a trash fish about to complete on the street) and the leading man of the Beach Guardian PKK, หมู 💖😊😍
How beautiful is this bear

Marven Robinson of the Gitga’at First Nation thinks that this beautiful female spirit bear (Kermode Bear) is approximately 18 years old. He has known her personally for over a decade. He helped me get photographs of her in 2011 for the cover story in @natgeo. Our goal with this coverage was to help prevent the Northern Gateway Pipeline from shipping oil (bitumen) from Alberta’s tar sands to Kitimat, BC which would then be tankered overseas to China to be processed. As we continue to stress our planet from human impact we are proud to be part of this small victory. The first nations call this bear Ma’a which means grandmother and she is certainly that. She is gentle, cautious, wise, patient and she feels comfortable around humans. With the younger, more powerful male bears dominating the best fishing spots on the river, she finds comfort in being around people like Marven. What a gift it is to spend time with both of them. What a gift it is to be invited into Gitga’at Territory and what a gift it is to be able to have a voice and be a part of conservation wins and solutions. We are just getting warmed up at @sea_legacy where we use our cameras to drive change. Most of all, we thank you for being a part of this journey. #gratitude#spiritbear#nature#oneearth With @jedweingarten and @gitgaatspirit
When you love what you have, you have everything you need - simplicity is serenity.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying trade all of your possessions for a backpack and a blanket of stars to keep ya warm at night, but it’s a damn good time! #españa#pyrenees#gr11#caminodesantiago
Quite amazing, baby steps towards the better tomorrow! 💖🌏 There is a group of volunteers in Prachuap Khiri Khan (Beach guardian Prachuap Khiri Khan) doing beach cleanups, wow!!! And they had also arranged a recycling spot at the local weekend market. There were at least 10 trash bins for different types of waste, I just love this 💖😍
