It’s 4am and I’m on the floor of the Mexico City Airport. Got an overnight layover, and there’s a security guard who kicks me every time I doze off. Man, prolly should’ve spent extra to get the direct. None of the movies I have downloaded would keep me awake. I guess I’ll write something. . .
.
It’s been 6 years since my marriage ended, and I was gifted a second try at life. 6 years ago, I took my first trip. A lot has changed, but so much hasn’t - I was in this exact situation. Spending the night on the cold airport floor, after visiting Machu Picchu. Back then I was scared to go home. And now, I’m still scared, but it has nothing to do with home. This floor feels about right. I am home. With my buddy in the yellow vest, who keeps checking that I’m awake. . .
.
It’s funny how you convince yourself that you’ve chosen your life. I remember I felt that way when I was an unmotivated accountant. As much as it seems like I’ve created my current reality, it feels a lot more like luck. I couldn’t ask for anything more than what I have now, so why do I still feel so sad? I’m prolly just tired. Hey it’s 6 now, maybe the restaurants are open in the food court. Guess I’ll head that way. . .

Swipe for a sleepless bathroom selfie. There is a face behind every image on here, and a lot of the time it looks like this.

Prior to this trip, I only knew the mountains of @Peru... I have a new found appreciation of this country’s diversity. Between the Amazon rainforest, glacier peaks in the Andes, expansive sand dunes, and rich cultural traditions, it’s the ultimate destination. Here’s the desert oasis of Huacachina under a full moon. Shot at 16mm/30sec/f4/iso200.

Been off the grid in the Amazon for the past few days... saw monkeys, a sloth, dolphins, a toucan, but the unexpected favorite was this baby Tapir. He is an orphan that was rescued by some locals and will be eventually released back into the wild. He had cool patterns and a funny nose, and followed me for a while. 😊@peru #visitperu #peruredefiningrichness

First trip in the new van was to see the stars with my Mom. My stoke for all this stuff comes from her. Happy Mother’s Day!

Feet ankle deep in the sand, looking out to the waves. Turn around to realize that jagged mountains are towering over from behind. . . Hawaiian beauty, shot at 240mm.

This is exactly what I expected the beach in Australia to look like. 🦘 @jess.wandering 🦘

Couldn’t help but compare this beach to the one in Leonardo DiCaprio’s dream world in Inception... rocks the size of skyscrapers, eroding away and eventually collapsing. You can see the remnants of a pillar bottom left corner. I asked the heli pilot why there’s no way down to the beach, and apparently there’s a colony of penguins that live down there. Dream penguin world down there for sure. 🐧

Every visitor who enters Palau signs a pledge in their passport - “To preserve and protect . . tread lightly, act kindly and explore mindfully.” This respectful mentality reflects thru their warm culture and pristine landscapes. I have never seen so much beauty, virtually untouched. @savethereef
