Local women pose for a portrait in front of Noijin Kangsang in Tibet. This massive glacier in the Lhagoi Kangri chain is the closest major peak to Lhasa. It is a holy peak for the locals and people burn incense and put prayer flags near it. Tibetan prayer flags are traditionally used to promote peace, wisdom, compassion, and strength. Tibetans believe the wind will blow the prayers and mantras into the surroundings, spreading goodwill and compassion. By @andrea_frazzetta 👌 #remotexpeditions#tibet

Deadvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia, really looks just like this, but you have to be here at sunrise to get the shot. I’m always respectful of other photographers and try not to walk into their shots, but as great places around the world get too popular, it is nearly impossible to shoot without hoping someone won’t be in my image. In this case I was happy to have people in the shot, because they gave the image scale and made it a little different than all the other images we have seen from here. Either way, it is worth a trip to Namibia to see these dead camel thorn trees, which are still erect due to the very low humidity. By @michaelmelford 👍 #remotexpeditions#namibia

Top of my New Orleans bucket list was seeing this amazing revolving carousel at @hotelmonteleone in real life. Can you believe this is a bar? Y’all (clearly the South is getting to me..) know I love a good cocktail bar and this has gotta be up there as one of the most unique I’ve ever visited. Now, who’s joining me for a tipple?
There is so much beauty in knowing that you are always both coming and going. That you can never simply leave a place without arriving at another. A reminder that with every loss there is something to be gained. #meettheapennines

Let me tell you something - I'm extremely lucky. I've been feeling that way since I got out of the tuktuk in part of Kanchanaburi province where my workaway has place. Warm welcoming, incredible surroundings, interesting tasks and them - the elephants.
Resort I'm staying in is cooperating with Somboon Legacy, foundation-to-be (they're waiting for approval to use this title), which focuses on saving those giant animals, providing them all they need, educating about them and most importantly - letting them be free and not treated as toys. That means, Malee and Kammoon are not being touched by anyone but their mahouts. There's a lot of misinformation about elephants and I know that many tourists don't want to cause them stress, but they can't distinguish what is right and what is wrong. I mean, sitting on elephants' back is quite obviously wrong thing, but for example some places can tell you that elephants love water, so bathing them will only make them happy. Believe me, for the two times I watched mahouts taking those ladies to the river, Malee was not eager to hop in. She started covering herself with sand to get even more dusty😂 well, that's fine, elephant's choince, you dirty girl. But when there are tourists waiting for it, nobody cares. And there are tools to force elephants to do what mahout say. Luckily, here, nobody uses them.
My point is, if you want to see elephants in the future, make sure it's hands-off place. The name "sanctuary" sometimes means nothing. Would that picture look better if I were wearing white dress, sitting on Malee's back like some fcking Pocahontas? Maybe. But I prefer to sit there like a cat shitting on the deser, keeping the distance, knowing that no animal got hurt for my gram 😝
PS. Elephants are just such a cool animals, right?🐘🐘

September 2019. 🌞 Matera (in Southern Italy) has been home to people for over 9,000 years! It's the oldest continually inhabited place in Europe. 'The Passion of the Christ' was filmed here and the upcoming James Bond movie 'No Time to Die' has a large number of scenes in this beautiful city. 🎬🎥 I was lucky enough to watch the filming and be allowed on set. Right now the city is still not very known but come next year, millions will see its beauty on the big screen and will want to visit! 😍
