It’s hard to describe this little lagoon that’s surrounded by 360 degrees of vertical rock. It’s a treacherous down-climb and if you’re lucky enough to make it to the bottom, there’s this giant hole in the mountain that somehow fills up with water during high tide. So cool to stand in the middle of what feels like a stadium that feels like it’s meant to be underwater, walls all around you with a little opening for the sun to shine through - has to be one of the most humid spots in Thailand too! // #Thailand #Krabi #RailayBeach #Lagoon

I first heard the story of this field maybe a decade ago - a handful of kids from a small fishing village in Phang Nga built a floating pitch out of scrap wood & trash. Since then, I had always wanted to step foot on it for myself. To imagine what those first games must have been like for the kids of this village, the smiles created from a flat surface & ball playing as the sun set over the water. Field reminds me that sometimes it ok to be just that simple // #Thailand #PayneeFC #KohPanyee #TheThirdHalf #FloatingPitch

Stretching the legs after a full 3 hour motorbike trip to the Imperial City of Hue. You cruise over the Hai Van Pass, through the Valley of Tombs (not making this up) and past what can only be described as a deserted beach town. This is a rad city with lots of temples, history and some of the best food in Vietnam. There was a 5m drop on the one side too :) // #Vietnam #Hue #ImperialCity #barefoot

It’s been one of the most productive months working remote here in SE Asia. A healthy work-life balance is something that’s seemingly harder to create these days, we just don’t allocate enough personal time! Somehow it’s become a currency to claim our late hours, how busy we are, how hard we are “hustling”. I was taught a long time ago that at the end of the day, it’s just about results. So don’t feel pressure to fill your schedule or do more than you can handle - take up a hobby, invest in yourself and remember what you are working for in the first place! Having outdoor gyms, organic food, hiking, beaches, monkeys & diving all within a short motorbike from our office has been a great balance! // #Thailand #Krabi #AoNang #RailayBeach #TheLovelyDay #StayFresh

Celebrating Chinese New Years here in Vietnam! Floating on a river letting candles go under lanterned skies is a very peaceful way to do it. It’s been a productive month working out of here. We’ve been busy building several meaningful projects with great clients & amazing people - so many amazing stories & innovative products to come. Here’s to a year of impact! // #vietnam #hoian #danang #lanterns

Never imagined I’d end up in the Bush playing pick up with the Maasai in Africa! This was one of the raddest things I’ve stumbled into. They live within a stones throw from lions, have their own language & wealth is measured simply in cows. How fun that a ball is all that’s needed to bring such worlds together // #Tanzania #Maasai #Africa #WalterMitty

Earlier this month, we got caught in a surprise flurry halfway through our road trip. Was very unprepared to see snow that early but so rad to see fall leaves dusted like this. Was quite a way to wake up - shorts & all! 😂 // #Vail #Snowfall #VW #AD

The trail head was actually the other direction but when your waiting on @alex_stead & @antonsnelson to set up ahead, you find ways to entertain yourself! I’m bias but I’d buy this @patagonia jacket if I saw this photo 😂 // #Dolomites #Italy #Nikon

It’s not often you have projects that allow you to go explore in the mountains - especially a mountain range as impressive as this one. I kept saying the Dolomites looked as if “the earth sneezed and they just shot up out of the ground”. I still feel that description is pretty on point 😂 // #Dolomites #Italy #HikingAdventures

Watching the sunrise as we kayaked through the mist was one of the more peaceful moments in the Dolomites. A few months ago we got to be apart of a 12 day road trip through Italy for Nikon’s new camera release. Was one of the funnest projects with one of the best crews - too many laughs, espressos & sunrises. The hotel remind you of anything?! // #WesAnderson #GrandBudapest #Dolomites

This color is such a vibe. We had 6 days between shoots in LA & Chicago, decided last minute to road trip in this beauty & work from the road. Thanks tons to @vw for the early birthday gift, what a whip to zip around in! // #Volkswagen #Roadtrip #ZionNationalPark #AD

I don’t know what I enjoyed more - the intricate grooves & flowing curves created through thousands of years of flooding...or how many people hilariously cram in here yelling at each other to move while snapping thousands of photos. I quite enjoyed witnessing both 😂 // #antelopecanyon #peterlik

I love that we measure value intrinsically - meaning that what is most important to us is ultimately up to us to decide! Something that matters to one person can mean very little to someone else - relationships, experiences, wealth, busyness. Happiness then can be anything we decide and no one can tell you otherwise! That might be one of the raddest parts of life, that what we cherish most doesn’t lose it’s worth when others feel differently. So let go, chase what you love & be firm in what you value - that’s what makes us unique! \\ @risefestival #risefestival

Its easy to see why Game of Thrones filmed so much here in Iceland, can picture dragons just about anywhere. Love how much this place transports you, humbling to say the least

If you don’t gram it, did it even happen? Just in case, here’s a shot at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, a full 19,340ft above sea level. To stand above the clouds, feeling like you are in space as you literally see the curvature of the earth - that’s pretty all time! .

Perks of dating a dive instructor - morning shoots like this with @kia_steiger & a school of barracuda. Think I’ve spent more time underwater this year than my entire life combined. There’s something so calming about being 25m down, sun rays dancing above you, life circling all around while you’re completely weightless. Bit of heaven // #KohTao #PadiTV #ProjectAware #NatGeo #GirlsthatScuba #Underwater @paditv #padi #HelloFrom

All smiles as we row up the Ganges River in one of the oldest living & sacred cities in the world, Varanasi. Hard to put into words how special this morning felt as we watched Hindu rituals come to life along the the river banks - even cremations! Happiest of birthdays to this barefooted, Australian accented, Danish speaking, eats anything, adventurous little diving hippie 🤙🏼 // #Varanasi #India #GangesRiver #KumbhMela #ExploreAlways #PlotTwist

Doggos will always be the best defenders, even in the alleys of Mumbai. Still to this day, I froth out anytime I turn a corner & stumble upon someone playing. So if you ever travel with me, bank on a 15 minute delay if we ever come across a ball. Or dog 😂 // #Mumbai #India #StreetSoccer #PuppyatHeart
