You can spend all day exploring them! 👑 ••••••••••••••••••••• Camera: @sonyalpha A7Rii Lens: Sony 16-35mm F4 ••••••••••••••••••••• #portugal #penapalace
Snow-covered yurts owned by Kyrgyz nomads in Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor.  Just published a big photo essay & video from my 100 mile, 10 day trek into Afghanistan last summer.

Afghanistan has some impressive mountains! These are the Hindu Kush, a range that creates a border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Locals from both countries trek between them to trade with each other. That orange bridge was built by the Soviets during their occupation of Afghanistan in the 80’s. ••••••••••••••••••••• Camera: @sonyalpha A7Rii Lens: Sony 16-35mm F4 ••••••••••••••••••••• #afghanistan #wakhan
Afghan girl in the village of Sarhad-e Broghil. Many of you were asking if I saw women in Afghanistan. Yes, but most were extremely camera shy, except for the kids. ••••••••••••••••••••• Camera: @sonyalpha A7Rii Lens: Sony 16-35mm F4 ••••••••••••••••••••• #afghanistan #portrait

Enjoying my "Matthew of Arabia" moment in the #sahara... giddy-up, camel!  Technically this is called a "dromedary" because it has one hump. 🐪 Any other camel fans out there? ••••••••••••••••••••• Camera: @sonyalpha A7Rii Lens: 16-35mm F4 📷: @anna.everywhere ••••••••••••••••••••• #morocco #camel

Tonight, I’m celebrating #earthhour and the fight against climate change! Every year, hundreds of millions of people around the world switch off their lights for one designated hour as part of the Earth Hour movement, a symbolic gesture to inspire action on climate change.  What are you waiting for? Turn off those lights, take a stand for the planet, and join me in posting a photo or video that shows why protecting the planet is important to you. ••••••••••••••••••••• Dancing with the northern lights in Iceland. ✨ ••••••••••••••••••••• #iceland #aurora

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!🍺🍀 This is Cobh, Ireland. My #irish grandmother left from this port to immigrate to the USA. It was also the last port of call for the Titanic.  Where in the world would you like to travel next, and why? 🌎 ••••••••••••••••••••• #ireland #stpatricksday
Soon after this, I tripped & face-planted into the sand. Worth it! 😜 ••••••••••••••••••••• Camera: @gopro #hero5 ••••••••••••••••••••• #oman #sanddunes
