Memories across four islands, an ocean, and an active lava flow :) This summer @sam_kolder and I got to experience four islands of my home, Hawaii, as exceptionally curated by the @fourseasons.

Hawaii is so beautiful that I almost feel like it’s easy to keep things superficial when showing it to visitors. Waterfalls. White sand beaches. This trip was very much not that. Instead of just seeing the volcano, we got to do things like learn about the science behind it while flying with renown Hawaii volcanologist Jack Lockwood, see a hula as led by lifetime practitioner Kumu hula Laakea Perry, pick our own fruits to be used in a dinner with Chuck, the owner of Ono Organic Farms.
-
@fshualalai, @fslanai, @fsoahu, @fsMaui thank you for not only showing us the best and most beautiful of each island, but for also making this Hawaii girl very proud of the way you’re presenting and seeking out local organizations and individuals to share, what I view, as the more meaningful part of Hawaii.

@adorama Stunning! ✨

Ended the day here :) Philippines I adore you and I’m happy to say I’ve seen very little trash (and I always see the tour guides picking up) and my coconuts have most often been served with a bamboo or plant straw!! So good job everyone! I’ll be here a few more days diving, working and playing on boats - couldn’t be more stoked #ElNido #palawan

Sad to see you go Chris. You were always kind to me early in my career. Quick to pick up the phone if the surf looked huge and the conditions were right. You had a knack for making the right call. Never forgot a face, and probably had the best smile I have ever seen. This is still one of my favorite covers ever. Thanks for giving this kid a chance.

@carmenhuter Insane 😍

Yep, it's a pretty famous hike and yep, I did have to wait my turn to take this photo but yep, it was worth the endless uphill and the crowds for this view. Sometimes I wonder, should we keep going to places with so many tourists? On one hand I want these options to remain open to me, on the other I want to be a more conscientious traveler. I recently put together an article about overtourism but unlike most of what I read, it's about how we can work to alleviate it and do our part to solve it on a micro level, one by one.

Faces are so powerful. They have a way to really jog your memory and put you right back behind the lens of that exact moment. Near the backwaters of Kerala India we followed a rivermouth to the sea in search of a near mythical wave. It ended up on the cover of Surfer mag. Beyond the waves.. the most significant experience was all the people I met on the beach.. This man just wanted his picture taken, he gestured to his cross and said he was here to worship. 
Shot with a 50mm 5.14. I share this photo mostly because my wife loves it.

@kcdeane Let’s go back. Like next week

@kcdeane @a.chad oh man. Yeah that’s very very unfortunate. Should be an interesting week.

I could not talk about Venice without mentioning my favorite hotel in the city: The Gritti Palace. As far as I can tell, it was created by the Pisani family in 1475. In the 15th or 16th century, it became the palazzo of the Doge of Venice, Andrea Gritti; whose name it still bears. It was then used as the Vatican Embassy to Venice. In 1902 it became part of a neighboring hotel, in the 1940’s an independently operated hotel. Now it is part of The Luxury Collection, in fact I think it was the first property in the collection. In 2013 it underwent a 60 million dollar renovation. Not too long after that, I visited for the first time. It was during that first visit that I took this image and fell deeply in love with my view of Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute. Each morning I would throw open the shutters and marvel at the traffic on the canal while the sound of gondoliers serenading couples in love carried on the breeze. My room was just above Bar Longhi and Riva Lounge. The latter was meant to recall Monaco Yacht Club and its nautical details did make me feel as if I was floating on a yacht in the Mediterranean. On a sunny day, to sit there with a glass of wine and to watch the boats go by - is truly one of my favorite things to do anywhere in the world. As British writer W. Somerset Maugham observed in 1960, “There are few things in life more pleasant than to sit on the terrace of the Gritti when the sun about to set bathes in lovely colour the Salute [basilica], which almost faces you.” Ernest Hemingway once staged a midnight baseball game in the hotel’s lobby and instead of being reprimanded, had 10 percent taken off his bill since nobody had ever played the sport on the premises before. At least that’s the story according to Architectural Digest. In the 1950s, Dior models were often featured in photoshoots at Gritti. Perhaps that’s the biggest reason I love it. It’s not only the luxury, it’s that by staying there, you’re staying in a piece of history; one that’s survived through so much change in an ever-changing world. If Gritti can last through it all, maybe, so can we. ️

@sezgiolgac What a beauty 💙

In cold water everything seems to slow down a little bit. Maybe because your body feels like it’s moving through molasses in the thick wetsuit or it could be the heavy aspect of cold water. Honestly It’s hard to envision why people keep doing, after you get hit with your first ice cream headache it’s not a pleasant feeling. But even so, regardless of how good the waves are or even if there’s an exit strategy people keep coming back for more. @hammered_sam

For the last three days @emmett_sparling and I lived on a small boat in the Philippines with @bdbm_coron.

Although we were warned that Coron can be really busy we have had nothing but the best time here!! When we showed up to Kayangan Lake we had it almost entirely to ourselves. It was so quiet that without even noticing it we kept our voices to a whisper. I like places that make you do that

This glorious lagoon is 80% fresh water and 20% salt water with a cool multi-chambered cave and hot water thermocline (a first for me!).

Hey buddy, can't wait to swim with you in October. Who else has always dreamed of going to the Galapagos? Two days ago, I shared that the next BMTM Adventures trip is to Iceland, and today I want to share October's trip to Galapagos. It'll be a week of Yoga and diving followed by adventurous activities like hiking, surfing, and kayaking (and snorkeling of course) on one of the most idyllic islands in the Galapagos. Islands frozen in time with animals so curious and friendly, they come right up to you. Join me on this year's women's adventure trip there! Link in bio. As always, feel free to ask any questions here.

The best thing about catching sunrises is that you get incredible light and beautiful places all to yourself. I’ve been coming to Lake Diablo for many years to see this view. Was nice to sit & watch the clouds roll by as the sun lit up the mountains  . This is part of the reason I love photography so much—the endless pursuit of epic moments.

I’ll often take advantage of any vantage point I possibly can to make a photo a little more interesting. Often that means just elevating or lowering myself by just a couple feet to change my perspective. You can pretty much guarantee that If you’re standing on the ground and taking a picture at eye level you run the risk of shooting from a perspective that we always see.

Since I’ve been talking about Italy this long, figured I’d do at least one more post from the country to help illustrate one of the things I DO love about Instagram. I got a few messages from people wondering why I dislike the app so much after yesterday’s post and if you read that much into what I wrote, I’m so sorry I didn’t communicate my meaning better. The fact is, I am so grateful to @instagram for the opportunities it has brought my way, the friendships I have made here and the more than 40 countries that I have been able to visit essentially just because of my following here. Like I said the other day, there is never a day I am ungrateful for these opportunities. It is cities such as Venice that have led me either directly, or indirectly, to what are some of the most important friendships I have.
.
Just as one example: While I never was able to meet @neumarc during a visit to Venice, it was because of work in the city that I found his account years ago and followed him, mesmerized by the images he shares. He had a larger following than I did then and I perceived that he was too good of a photographer to be interested in meeting lil ol me, so I never reached out. Then last year, we both ended up on a Viking Ocean Cruise and finally had the chance to meet. Marco is now a close friend and I won’t ever be visiting Venice again without seeing him there. I can’t imagine my world without his friendship. And he’s not the only one I feel that way about, that I’ve been able to meet essentially or actually because of IG.
.
You can choose to frame your view of IG in a positive way, you can make this place what you want it to be. And I choose to make it a place I come to for the people ️
.
What do you make it? Why are you here? I’d love to know!

As soon as I run my fingers over the weathered pages of my Antarctica journal, I’m immediately transported back to my room on the ship last year, my back against the wall curled up in bed with my watercolors and notebooks around me. When I was younger I used to draw and write down everything. While I still bullet journal a bit and take notes, and of course make all the lists, especially when I’m traveling, I haven’t filled a sketchbook in years, as electronics have slowly dominated my life. When I was in Antarctica earlier this year for almost a month, that’s right a month offline, I got back to my roots and began to write by hand again. Nothing preserves special memories quite the same way, right? I love looking back and rereading my feelings and thoughts from a precise moment in time, especially when I can see my handwriting go all wonky during big swells and storms. Is there any other pen to use in this situation other than the @parkerpen Sonnet Special Edition Atlas, delicately engraved with the world Atlas, when I’ve finally reached a place on the world map I’ve been dreaming about since I was a child?

Working on a book can be a glacial process ( no pun intended :) .. at times it’s near impossible to see the movement until the end. Over the last 6 years I’ve been shooting, compiling & editing down my images to create a portfolio that illustrates a clear picture of Iceland’s complex river systems. But the beauty of any long project is the light at the end of the tunnel. Over 8,000 words of text by @63mph has really brought this project to life. The book tentatively titled “At Glaciers End” is slowly coming along.
