"It was New Years Eve 2017 when some friends and I took a road trip to East Cape, New Zealand to see the first light of the new year. We sat by the warmth of the fire on the beach and watched as the stars sparkled to life above us."

Photo by @max.lowe // Never had I seen a ridgeline quite like it, arching and twisted like the back of some giant sleeping emerald dragon, and with a trail right along the knifes edge for the entire route. Reflections on my time in the Swiss Alps, hiking the Hardergrat trail above Lake Brienz.


Photo by @joelsartore | Currently, only three institutions in the world are home to the critically endangered rufous-fronted laughingthrush. The main population is housed at Cikananga Conservation Breeding Center (CCBC) @cikananga.foundation in Java where a captive breeding program was implemented in 2013. Over the past 5 years the facility has bred a total of 18 birds, with 17 still residing at CCBC. The key to success for this species will come from getting birds from different captive populations to breed with one another. The more genetic diversity a population has, the healthier it is, and the greater its chance of survival. With a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck this species may one day return to the wild. @zootrhy_plzen where this bird was photographed houses and breeds and has one of the finest collections of this species in the world.

“When I saw the bond between the goose and the person, I just couldn’t resist myself from capturing it,” says 24-year-old Rahul Singh (@theastvibes), who photographed this #WHPkindness submission by the Brahmaputra River in Assam, India. “It’s so funny that we can create a bond with anything via compassion and love.”


#FotoDelDía | Una cámara trampa captó a este ocelote en un paseo nocturno. Los ocelotes pueden pesar hasta 33 libras (unos 15 kilogramos); su dieta incluye roedores, lagartos, perezosos, así como los pollos del agricultor Elias Machipango Shuverireni, quién es uno de los indígenas que viven dentro del Parque Nacional Manú de Perú. Aún así, dice que admira la belleza de estos felinos.

Next in my series of under visited places is Sukhothai! 🇹🇭🇹🇭🇹🇭
Sukhothai is the former imperial capital of the Sukhothai Empire. The ruins of the capital can be found in the historical park of the same name just outside of the modern city of Sukhothai.
Sukhothai is located approximately halfway between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Despite being situated between two of the most popular destinations in Thailand, Sukhothai gets very few visitors in comparison. Most people either fly or take a train, which skips Sukhothai entirely.
It is really too bad because Sukhothai is an amazing place. I’ve often described it as a smaller, cleaner version of Angkor, Cambodia. There are almost 200 ruins spread over 70 square kilometers. There are very few visitors to the park and you can stroll about the grounds historical park is which only a few square kilometers.
The park has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is one of the most significant historical sites in Thailand. It think it is a superior visit to Ayutthaya which is usually crowded with visitors on day trips from Bangkok.
When I visited I pretty much had the park to myself. You can walk amongst the temple ruins or you can rent a bike. They have paved paths that you can ride on.
The easiest way to get to Sukhothai is either by bus or train, from Bangkok or Chiang Mai. I recommend people stop here if they are going between the two cities as it is one place in the country which should not be missed.
