6 months on the road 😍🥰🎉🚲🚲 !! We quite can’t believe what we have experienced the last 6 months, how far we came and that we are celebrating this tiny anniversary in the beautiful desert of Oman! 🐪🌴 This landscape is so surreal, yet breathtaking and peaceful. Wildcamping is at its best and we couldn’t think of any other place where we would rather be ❤️

One of these days I would like to stay on a house boat while in Amsterdam. Until then, I just keep taking pictures.

One of my top 3 fave places that we saw on our 2018 trip. We "trekked" 45 min, walking along roads through residential areas and towns before we reached La Collina. The main building was designed by Terunobu Fujimori. This architect and historian of Japanese architecture is known for designing projects that are exercises in playful experimentation and sophisticated craft. La Collina includes restaurants and shops surrounded by rice fields. Grass grows on roofs and walls curve like mushrooms, just like the pages of a fairy tale book. I believe that in Spring or summer, the photography & scenery would look more picturesque...This bakery is dedicated to baumkuchen; it provided visitors like us the chance to see how the pastries are prepared & baked to completion. The baumkuchen was sublime and oh so melt in your mouth & fresh. We bought 2 slices initially; ended up buying 2 whole cakes & ate them on the spot! The kids had so much fun. Simply loved the store concept - check out my video & the graffiti art. We overspent the time I allocated for this and subsequently we missed the visiting time for Hikone castle; arrived when the gates closed. But it was worth it. A* Star for this. #throwback #worthit #meltinyourmouth #amazing #cakeporn #yummy #mouthwatering #unique #offthebeatentrack #picturesque #scenic #fairytale #architecture #zen #serenity #fun #familyholidays #familymoments #travelmore #instatravel #instagood #picoftheday #aandbinjapan #aandbinjapan2018 #ilovejapan #imissjapan

Turns out last year at the same time, my family and I visited Shiraz in Iran and amazing Persepolis. This photo represent Naqsh-e Rostam – The four Achaemenid Tombs, carved in the Rock: Tomb of Darius II, Artaxerxes, Darius The Great, and Xerxes- it's located 5 minutes drive from Persepolis main site, not to be missed!

We watched the sunrise from a mokoro as we poled to mainland Chiefs Island for a long walk, following up on the distant call of lions during the night. This is my idea of adventure!

Since the PCT, I’ve had an allergic reaction to hiking. Anyone asks me if I want to go for a hike, “Nope, definitely not.” Approach for a climb? Better be less than a quarter mile.⠀

But, recently, I’ve begun to feel the itch again. I’ve been looking back at some of my favorite sections of the Sierras, thinking about my pack setup, looking at gear, and just letting my mind wander in ways it hasn’t since July.⠀

Unfortunately, my hiking legs are less than stellar at the moment. So, I’m looking to ramp back up the training, looking at articles online and thinking about gym exercises and workouts. Funny enough, each article ends with a statement along the lines of “you can train all you want in the gym but no training beats just loading a pack up and getting outside.”⠀

It’s then that I realized I was being a bit dull in the head. Santa Teresa County Park is literally 50 feet away from me. It’s more effort for me to make it to a gym than to a trailhead…⠀

I’ve had this same realization with my climbing. I can send as many V6’s, V7’s, and V8’s indoors. But I’ll still go to Joshua Tree and have a V0 absolutely wreck me.⠀

Point being, nothing beats training for the outdoors like being outdoors.⠀

____________________
Apologies for my lack of Instagram activity lately. It hasn’t necessarily been a conscious decision - rather, social media simply hasn’t been a priority since my return from Uganda on the 23rd of December. I’ve been focusing a lot on my health, both physical and psychological: daily meditations, yoga and gym, regular saunas, lots of walks in the forest (when the ice and fallen trees doesn’t make it too tricky), family time and snuggles on the couch. I’ve been writing articles and making plans for 2019, too, organising trips and fundraisers. I have to say, I strongly believe that my ability to “land” very quickly and slip into my “at home” routines is one of the biggest reasons I can handle having such a nomadic, transient lifestyle for much of the year. That, and the grounding @jessi_mali gives my life. ❤️
____________________
Speaking of nomadic and transient: meet Sinyon. She belongs to the Ngiwoyakura (meaning “long spears”) clan of the Turkana. We came across her and her temporary village in Kobebe Hills, Karamoja, on the last morning of our five day walk, just as she was about to set off for Kenya together with a few other women. The walk would take several days; they had sold a cow in Moroto and would now cross the border to purchase maize flour with the proceeds before returning to Kobebe Hills. In a few months the entire village will be gone, its inhabitants moving on to find greener pastures for their beloved livestock. Meeting people like Sinyon (whose name means “scarring”, but who doesn’t know how old she is) often brings up many mixed feelings and thoughts, from gratitude and perspective to the many things which both unite and divide humans around the world. 👣

Photo: A Saudi man in traditional clothes (white thawb and red & white checkered ghutrah) walks down the street in the historic old city centre of Jeddah. Notice the coral house with wooden terraces on the right.
.
I assumed most men wore this outfit everyday here, but it seems maybe people just alternate between this and Western clothes as they please. All the airport officials wore this, but walking through the city men of the same profession and same class seem to alternate between this and jeans & t-shirts.
