Spent the past weekend hangin out and relaxing on the beauutiful island of Koh Chang in Central Thailand with an awesome crew!

Always a pleasure to travel with @lifevlaw. Major props to @peninsulabeachresort.kohchang for hosting us in an epic oceanside villa!

One thing I miss about traveling in North America is the pristine and fresh smell of alpine air. Hoping to find a place like this again either in Europe or Central Asia soon!

Akshardham: The largest Hindu temple in the world. Did you know that I almost went to jail in India over this picture?
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I was interrogated for nearly 8 hours by various police and Indian national security agencies because I flew my drone over this landmark.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
They kept asking if I was from Pakistan, If i'd ever been to Pakistan, if my parents are Pakistani or if i'm part of any terror organizations.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Luckily for me, I happen to not be a terrorist (Phew). Full story of behind the scenes is in Episode 4 of my Vlogs! Check it out!

Got quite a view with the sunrise at the infinity pool overlooking the vast lake at Inle Lake View Resort. Plot twist: im taking a selfie with the phone as a camera remote πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

What an amazing time exploring the endless centuries old temples that dot the plains of Bagan.

Though it's "green" (monsoon) season and skies are generally cloudy, every once in a while you get lucky with the sun poking through.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
P.s. None of would have been possible without the guys at Ananta Resort!

Scootin' around is the best way to catch the sunset! Thanks again to Ananta Resort for hooking me up with a room and e-bike!

Landed in Myanmar a few days ago, met some awesome people and finally have some time to chill for a bit!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Major props to Ananta Hotel Bagan for the stay and epic hospitality while here.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Lots of Burma pictures to come!

Getting around Thailand by Train is definitely the best way to actually see the views 🀩🀩

p.s. the behind the scenes of this shot are posted on my story!

What a craaazy place to get to. I ran my way through a 1.8 km hike last minute for sunset only to find out there's another 5km to go across a huge sandy beach. Luckily i made it here just in time and met some other awesome individuals along the way.

Not pictured: My 7km trek in pure darkness through a mud bogs, forest and cliffs back to my car (where I then slept in on an indian reservation)

What could be better than spending a weekend in a private villa surrounded by the jungle? Loved the relaxing nature retreat that @themarndadeeboutique put together for us!

Heeey! my first sponsored post!β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Huge shoutout to @themarndadeeboutique for hosting us for our weekend in Chiang Mai! What an amazing time we had exploring the endless rice fields and rolling hills of northern thailand.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
This spot is actually only 5 min away by scooter from where we stayed!

Wow. Never thought id see a city as beautiful as Udaipur - and what a contrast it is to the rest of India too!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I came here solo with no idea what to expect - literally arrived because a stranger suggested through my DM's.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
This place was so romantic and relaxing that most of my days here were used flying my drone around, relaxing on rooftops and watching epic sunsets and sunrises.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
It's no wonder this place was voted the most beautiful city in the world in 2009. I will definitely be back and recommend anyone that hasn't been to visit this hidden gem.

P. S. Behind the scenes and a load of drone footage is available on IGTV and in my story vlog!
