The Italian Alps were just something else. So stoked to get back to this special slice of the world next month. Can you spot the little hiking trail snaking through this photo?

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Today is the first Monday I haven’t gone into an office in over four years. I just quit my job in order to travel full time, working as a freelance photographer. It’s honestly still hard to comprehend I’m actually doing it, that this is really happening right now...it doesn’t feel real yet. But I am SO excited to bring you guys on this journey with me and tell the honest story of what it’s really like to leave your life behind to travel the world. I’ve got a couple of weeks left in my San Francisco apartment and then I’m off to Europe for all of September. Here goes nothing.

This river gorge was a highlight of the Germany leg of our trip. It was so much fun exploring, the path slippery and misty from all of the waterfalls (you can see both on the left side).

Getting super stoked for upcoming trips that are officially on the books! Got any travel plans you’re really excited about? Anywhere I need to put on my list?

Eastern California on the other side of the Sierras feels like a completely different world than the rest of the state. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend a drive down Highway 395, especially during the fall. Then you can a take a sunrise dip in these hot springs too.

Can never get enough of this insane road, had to edit another one from this set. @karl_shakur snapped this photo of me while I walked the line, watching the early morning sun light up the mountain peak right before my eyes.

Exploring this 16th century lakeside village felt like walking through a dream. We ended up getting a traditional Austrian dinner at that little outdoor cafe in the right corner of this photo. Feeling really grateful right now for all the opportunities I’ve had to experience new places and cultures.

Realized my hair matched the waterfall and just had to take a photo with it. But if you look really closely, you’ll see my feet also match the dirt after backpacking in ten miles that day. That glamorous lifestyle.

Dreamy nights in northern Norway. Believe it or not, this photo was taken at midnight, illuminated by the midnight sun.

This is one of those locations you can never quite get enough of. I remember after the sun went down on this evening, getting darker by the minute, I just couldn’t bare to pull my eyes from this view and walk away. I’ll be back again someday, Samuel Boardman.

At home getting a ton of work done on upcoming projects, but itching to be back out on the road. Do you guys have any epic road trips planned?

Still hard to believe I was swimming beneath this massive waterfall just a couple months ago...it feels like some crazy dream I had, not real life. Can you spot the tiny person in this photo?
