At sunrise, this state park an hour outside of Vegas lights up brighter than a neon sign on the strip. I’ll take these dramatic views in quiet solitude over clubs and casinos any day.

Welcome to Mars. Walking through these otherworldly landscapes really does feel like you’ve stepped onto another planet. They bring be back here time and time again.

An early morning along the Oregon Coast. The forecast was looking clear, so we woke up at 4am, drove two and a half hours, and hiked down here in the dark. Eventually, the most insane light appeared and we couldn’t believe our eyes. My favorite sunrise of the year so far, and it’s going to be a tough one to beat.

The landscapes we’ve discovered in middle of nowhere Arizona have absolutely been blowing my mind. So glad I brought my Evo drone from @autelrobotics with me so that I could capture these insane textures from above. Was just here a couple days ago but already can’t stop thinking about returning to this spot. #AutelEvo #AutelPartner

This was the kind of tour where you have to sign a death and dismemberment waiver for them to even consider taking you. To start, we free repelled 37 stories into the Lost World cave. Once you're down there, the only way out is to climb, scramble and swim your way upstream an underground river to the cave entrance miles on the other side, encountering albino eels and countless spiders along the way. When we reached the Impossible Waterfall, named for when spelunkers originally found this cave and had deemed it impassible, I thought it was actually a joke. There's no way a wide eyed tourist like myself hasn't died trying to climb this thing. But adrenaline rushing to the max, almost slipping and falling into the river below, I made it to the other side of the raging falls thanks to sheer determination. And before I knew it, we were sitting in our own cavern glittered with a sky full of glow worms, mesmerized by their blue lights twinkling all around us. When we finally emerged out of the mouth of the cave, seeing sunlight for the first time in seven hours and having reached a new level of physical exhaustion, I knew I had experienced something special. Something rare. Only a handful people have made it all the way through the Lost World, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. An adventure travel experience that fills you with confidence and accomplishment and respect for the planet you live on. That changes you for the better.

I turn 27 today. And although this is the first birthday that my age feels a little old, like I’m supposed to be a “grown-up” now or something, I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to simply be alive. Thankful for another year around the sun. Grateful to experience each days adventure.

There’s nothing like being among the tallest trees in the world to make you feel small. Hands down one of my favorite places on earth.

So happy to finally be back in the Southwest. First leg of this road trip: exploring more of northern Arizona with @dani_the_explorer. It always amazes me how many hidden gems this state holds. Feels like I could keep discovering new things here forever.

Fancy a soccer match by the ocean anyone? Could hardly believe my eyes when we stumbled upon this field right on the jagged edge of the island. The Faroes is a wild place I couldn’t have even really dreamt of until I visited.

Our trip to the arctic circle in Finnish Lapland included so many fun new experiences. Puppies and reindeer were some of the cutest highlights! I’ve written a travel guide to visiting Finnish Lapland including top things to do, how to get there, and what to pack. Links in my bio if you’re thinking about planning a trip here!

After literally driving into these rays on accident a couple years ago, I knew I had to find them again. On the trip this winter, the first time we showed up to this spot we were too late and they weren’t there, and I was beginning to think that I had made them up or had forgotten where the spot was. The second day, they finally appeared and it felt so rewarding to have finally figured it out. Like some sort of high stakes scavenger hunt.
