Another Throwback to May 2016 when four close friends and me went for that wild hike around the Kerry Peninsula. I wore this 17 kilo backpack for the entire time and sometimes I felt like this little bug that is not able to get up on his own. Or like a big fat turtle, depending on what you want to compare yourself with 😂😂
This trip definitely taught me a if fat lesson: Travel lightweight! Pack only the stuff you think you essentially need on your trip and then leave again half of that stuff home then you might reach the point of luggage you will actually need 😂🙈😂
How are your packing experiences for backpacking, hiking or alpine trips? Let me know, I’m excited to get some Beta!
Thank you for taking that shot @my.name.is.ben ! •

“My husband and I were living in Japan for the last year. Work schedules became overwhelming there, like massively. We decided to call it quits as there is certainly more to life than grinding away year after year. We both love traveling and made the commitment to travel for the foreseeable future.⠀
Once when we were traveling in Nicaragua, we met a young man named Francisco working on the beach. We stood nervously as he approached us shirtless, tattooed and yielding a machete. We chatted momentarily as he passed. Returning a few minutes later with offerings of fresh coconuts and mangoes, we happily but cautiously obliged. As we further conversed in our differing languages, we learned that he was there repairing lobster traps for the upcoming season. Francisco was living on the beach by himself underneath a black plastic sheet suspended atop the stacked traps. Feeling guilty about our initial judgments and interested in his work, I (Jarrid) decided to help him repair some traps. Over the next couple of hours working together, we could see he was genuinely kind, hardworking, had a strong thirst for learning with a surprising level of intellect but trapped in a society with no real escape. Upon finishing work, he invited us to dine with him the following evening. So the next day, we strolled down the beach to eat at Francisco’s ‘home.’ We enjoyed freshly caught fish, gallo pinto, coco locos and a side of amazing Caribbean sunset. The experience of receiving something from someone that has nothing was an eye opener for us.” -Jarrid⠀

Do you guys ever have those photos where you just can’t seem to get the edit quite right? I legit have like 10 different versions of this shot saved on my phone. I think it’s time to slowly back away from Lightroom and just put this baby out into the world... haha!
Alternate caption: I drove in San Francisco for 3 days in a row and only cried twice 😐
One of my favorite things to surprise Austin visitors with is a #Skyspace experience! Tucked away on the roof of UT’s student activity center, it’s not the easiest place to get to... but its uniqueness makes it well worth the trek imo! What other James Turrell installations do I need in my life? (I’ve only seen one other- in Vegas- and haven’t made it to the Rice exhibit in Houston yet..) ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 #wellfedlifeinATX#JamesTurrell
