From time to time I’ve made some bad decisions in this thing we call life. For Instance, one time I jumped off a lifeguard chair onto flat concrete, even though my father told me I shouldn’t, and almost bit my tongue off. Thats one example. However on Nov. 19th 2008 I made the best decision of my life. I asked @kimferraro to be my girlfriend. 10 years down....to infinity and beyond ❤️. #moorea

Part of Myanmar
Kachin State is the northernmost state of Myanmar. It is bordered by China to the north and east.
Kachin State has Myanmar's highest mountain, Hkakabo Razi (5,889 metres (19,321 ft)), forming the southern tip of the Himalayas, and a large inland lake, Indawgyi Lake
Renewed fighting between the Kachin Independence Army and the Burmese army began on June 9, 2011 at Ta-pein hydropower plant and continued throughout 2012. Initial reports suggested that from June to September 2011 a total of 5,580 Internally Displaced Persons from 1,397 households arrived at 38 IDP camps under Myanmar Government control.In August, 2012 thousands of Kachin refugees were forced by the Chinese Government back into Myanmar despite the continued fighting there; NGOs like Human Rights Watch called to cease such action and pointed the illegality of doing so under international law. As of October 9, 2012, over 100,000 IDPs are taking shelter in various camps across Kachin State. The majority of IDPs (est. 70,000) are currently sheltering in KIA controlled territory. Fatality estimates were difficult to estimate but most reports suggested that between government troops, Kachin Independence Army rebels, and civilians upwards of 1,000 people had died in the conflict.
Even though many Kachins were already displaced internally, only around 150,000 people are reported as IDPs. The Kachins are currently the major target for the Burmese government, yet only few Kachins have resettled in the United States or in Australia, as compared to other Myanmar ethnics (such as the Karens and Chins). The economy of Kachin State is predominantly agricultural. The main products include rice, teak, sugar cane, opium. Mineral products include gold and jade. 🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲

Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of fear🥀
I ran away for my birthday again, this time to Vancouver Island.
I fell in love with this island in June when I first visited with my mom and I just new I would come back. I brought a camera this time and I will be snapping away!
After a long time away from the passions that fueled the younger me, I'm taking the transition into my late-twenties to transition back into my lost passions.
First day in Victoria was amazing, we're off to Tofino tomorrow and I can't wait!
Ps; if anyone knows where the abandoned plane wreck is located plz let me know cause I want to find it this week!
Just had the most amazing time getting to know these incredible creatures at the @kooranacrocodilefarm. You can see the love for crocs in the eyes of the staff members at this family owned crocodile farm. Highly recommended when you are traveling the East coast! And remember: always be croc safe 🐊⚠️

Do you know what my fav thing is apart from nature, meditating and technology?
Traveling. Traveling to far away places where no one knows you. The self inflicted expectations and timelines dissipate.
This photo was taken on a work trip in one of the many outstanding cathedrals in Krakow, Poland.
History, greed and religion fascinate me. The more knowledge I ingest and the more places I go, the greater understanding I gain and the clearer I become as a human being.
As I have talked about, a lot of travel for me was escapism (it’s a bit harder to escape on a work trip) but the snippets I found along the way will be forever a part of my personal blueprint.
If you’re afraid of the unknown, flying and being in a foreign country my recommendation is: do it anyway 👏🏼😊
