Icy blues in Huascaran National Park. This lake is actually the largest lake in the Cordillera Blanca range, sitting at 4185m above sea level! @experienceperu

I love places that make you realize how tiny you and your problems are 🍃
Who would you bring to this place?

The rapidity of time is scary.

They say when you’re young time moves gradually because routines are new and constantly changing. You work your ass off during the school years, intermural sports, homework, electives and relationships. You get a sprawling summer to be free, but you can’t drive, buy anything or travel anywhere. Life feels tiny and confined. You wait for birthdays to tack on another tally mark toward freedom and respect.

As you age, years of routine have set in. You "technically" can do whatever you want: travel, buy whatever, drink mimosas on a Tuesday morning, live alone, whatever. You have a favorite show you build your free time around. Life is packed around responsibilities that most of the time you barely enjoy. You thirst for weekends, evenings and travel two weeks out of the year to gain a glint of pined childhood liberation—fulfilling promises you made for yourself that one day, this day, you'll live freely and experience life like no short-lived parable.

Suddenly, you wake up and look in the mirror and see the passage of time in the creases on your cheeks, the missed opportunities and ways you bypassed living how you truly wanted for safe roads and necessity.

Pretty soon you’re fifty, but you still feel like you’re in your thirties. You watch your retirement portfolio, know your job backwards, counting the days until you can leave work permanently, even though the notion of not having a job gives you anxiety. But you know, at last, you’ll breathe the freedom you've wanted all along. You feel drained. You’ve read and watched people living the free life and you feel like it’s not for you after all.

That it was a young man’s game all along.

That the best years, these years, you should have known to release the reigns, that the slack you grant yourself is where you find yourself. Where you grow the most. There are so many years to saddle upon responsibility and work. We find endless excuses and ways to negotiate with our conscience, to put our curiosities and adventurous spirit to bed, seldom telling ourselves that today is the day we’re going to cut loose and live how we dreamed.

Looks like a wild ride! 🏔🇳🇴 Photo by @wildbonde

MASSIVE Thank You to all helping us protect this epic place above!!! Like I said before Lofoten is such a magical place that everyone should be able to go and visit and enjoy whatever outdoor pursuits you choose, not dollar signs for the greedy that will happily exploit our beautiful planet. If you missed the memo, and want to get on board helping us protect this place, there is still time. It takes 30 seconds and all you have to do is let the two Norwegian leaders @jonasgahrs and @erna_solberg of the upcoming election know below in the comments that we want the oil to stay in the ground #lofotenforever #oilfree #fossilfree #lofoten

Would you spend a night on this beach? I swear it’s one of the most unique beaches in the world. I had seen so many images of it before but experiencing and seeing it with my own eyes was incredible😍 Also met our guide Putu (@nusapenidaguiding) who took us to all of these insane spots and he is the nicest dude ever. Big props to him for showing us around👊🏼

A smart and down-to-earth lady once told me : “Everything is perfect. Life is perfect” Our joys, our failures, our challenges, our losses, our health conditions... Believe it or not, all of these are perfect. Taking life as it is for events that are out of our control, taking these as lessons and learning experiences while striving to become a better person is the only way go. This is why, when I see someone who has everything, health, wealth, family and friends, being incapable of accepting a defeat or facing a challenge and complaining about it, I just can take pity on him/her. Everything is perfect. Life is perfect and so are we. We have to accept it in order to move on, grow and find happiness
