I don’t think I could live in a van after careful consideration lol. I would hate dealing with the heat/cold. I think after coming back from Arizona, I just realize how much I despise the heat. I am also not sure if I could deal with lack of kitchen space. I need a lot of room for making food and I currently have a big kitchen but I am still running out of space to food prep. 😊🤭😆👶🏻

"No place I would rather be." Time to escape reality for a few days, heading south tomorrow ✈️ Haven't been so exited in a while; it will be so much different from all the countries I have seen up until this point.

Orcas are probably the most popular whale, I personally prefer Humpbacks - but I undoubtedly find Spermwhales the most interesting. . Whales live their lives underneath the sea, even though they need air to breathe. Most species spend their lives in the in-between world of the upper layers of the ocean, Spermwhales however are deep-divers. When searching for food they are able to repeatedly dive to depths so extreme that the only other inhabitants are specially adapted species, that never will see sunlight during their lifetime. . Imagine what it must be like, holding your breath for more than one hour, diving down to the deep, dark, cold crushing depth of somewhere between 500m to 3000m. The pressure of the water around you so high that it collapse your lungs. The only visible light is that projected by bioluminescent creatures. How do they even tell what is up or down? . It`s a special feeling listening in on them with the help of hydrophones, getting a glimpse of what they are up to in this extreme habitat very few humans get to visit. The pattern of their clicks of echolocation reveals whether they are searching for prey, actively hunting and stunning their prey with clicks up to 230db, or the absence of clicks indicating that they are resurfacing. In between dives they spend some calm minutes catching their breath, so to speak, at the surface, before they once again dive straight down to the deep, leaving our world with a beautiful fluke-up. . #spermwhale #ocean #whale #whales #whalewathcing #marinemammal #ocean #oceanwildlife #mittnordnorge #focusnordic #ig_nordnorge #animaladdicts #wildlifeonearth #animalplanet #wildlifeplanet #discoverwildlife #oceanminded #cetacean #oceanlove #discoverocean #earthmood #discoverearth #earth_shotz #naturelover #nature_pics #visualsofearth #discoverearth #naturephotography #vitaminsea

Have you ever wondered what really lives in your yard or local park that you don’t notice on a day to day basis. You may be surprised that quite a few critters reside there, some of which you may have seen and others perhaps not. I’ve read that there are somewhere between 50 and 200 trillion insects in the world, and between 6-10 million distinct species of insect. Now, insects in the micro world can be either beautiful or sometimes quite, shall we say, not so pretty. All it takes is a macro lens which be purchased at a modest price, and a steady hand, and you can begin to discover a world in which there are 30,000 insects for every human on the planet earth. I took a 20 minute stroll through the meadow at our cabin and captured very small sample of the insects that live there. The white butterfly is called a Cabbage White. The prettier butterfly is a Painted Lady. The green grasshopper-type insect that blends with the leaf I believe is a young Katydid. I’m not sure of the specific names of the other insects but they are certainly unique and beautiful in their own right. These are only six examples among 10 million other species of insect that share the earth with us. It’s mind boggling to think that we’ve only identified one million of the ten million species of insect. So next time you walk through your yard, keep and eye for the vast world that is humming beneath your feet. I hope you enjoy this facet of our natural world. #naturalworld #macrophotography #macroinsect #nikonphotographer #nikonlenses #nikon810 #earthshots #thenatureconservancy #nikonglobal #nikonphotos #beautifulplanet #discoverearth #epicshots #earthshots #nakedplanet #epiclandscapes

TIME TRAP With a long exposure, you can have beautiful pictures - all the moments are filtered out and onlytruly permanent remains. This photo is made with 4-minute exposure. Sometimes it feels like you've been trapped in time as the little bird on the right stick - sitting and waiting for but for what - there are no changes. Beautiful summer for everyone! . . . . . . . #estonia #visitestonia #eestifoto #landscapephotography #outdoors #adventure #travelinestonia #longexposure_shots #welcometoestonia #landscape #landscapephotography #awesome_earthpix #fujieesti #fujifilmglobal #enhancedmoments #earthofficial  #nationalgeographic #landscapecapture #longexpoelite #amazing_longexpo #fotoluks #builtforwinter #natureisourplayground #discoverearth #earthoutdoors #natureisyourplayground #exploretheglobe #thegreateoutdoors #visualsofearth

#Repost @castlesofscotland (@get_repost) ・・・ Dunalastair House is the site of an earlier house built by the great poet chieftain, Alexander Robertson, whose support for the Jacobites resulted in the destruction of his home. ▫️ The present house was built in the 1860s when General Sir John Macdonald, who commanded the land forces in Scotland, owned the estate. Dunalastair was latterly used as a school during the Second World War, before falling into a state of ruin following fire breakouts and vandalism. ▫️ Image by @abandoned_scotland —————————————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #folkscenery #dronestagram #dronephotography #visitscotland #scotlandlover #travelinggram #master_shots #thisisscotland #hiddenscotland #scotspirit #abandoned_excellence #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #abandonedplaces #instascotland #mytinyatlas #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #travellingthroughtheworld #scotlandsbeauty

Five frigid river crossings to get to the lake & five frigid river crossings to get back from the lake. Lol But even with all that painfully cold water up past my knees, it was still one of the most fun trails we have done so far. ♡ 🥶

Неизвестно когда возникло название долины Чуй. Кто первым дал ей такое имя? Почему оно звучит именно так? Мы ведь люди, мы народ. Нескончаемым караваном идет наша история и пишется в памяти народа сквозь время и бурные, хаотичные события. Возможно, ей дало название река «чуй», что означает «вода, русло воды» на древнетюркском языке. Так сказано и в древнекитайских летописях, и в записках арабских и персидских путешественников. Возможно, долина назвалась в честь тюркского племени «чу», которое по легенде, в давние времена необъятными селениями проживали на всей Центральной Азии. Одно мы можем знать точно. Это останется нетронутой тайной, навеки упокоенная в пучине прошедших эпох. . . No one knows when the name of the valley Chuy appeared. Who gave it that name? Why does it sound that way? We are people, we are nation. Our history goes on in an endless caravan and is written in people's memory through time and chaotic events. Perhaps it was named after the river "chuy", which means "water” in ancient Turkic language. So is said in the ancient Chinese chronicles, and notes of Arab and Persian travelers. Perhaps the valley was named after the Turkic tribe “Chu”, which in ancient times live in immense settlements throughout the Central Asia. One thing we know for sure is that this will remain an untouched secret, forever reposed in the depths of past eras. •162• . . . . #toptotrips #kyrgyzstan #discoverkyrgyzstan #outdoorphotography #gokg #pixkg #naturekyrgyzstan #centralasia #travelphotography #bishkek #nomad #wildernessculture #travel #бишкек #instalike #liketeam #l4l #nature #adventure #discoverearth #natgeo #earthpix #ourplanetdaily #travelawesome #earthoutdoors #discoverearth #freedom #traveler #mountains #trips
