This was taken on an island in point Reyes. The sky was overcast when we went to sleep in our tents and then at about 3am, I remember being woken up by the brightness of the stars, and right behind us was the Milky Way. #adventurethatislife
Today we headed up to one of my favourite views in the whole of Taiwan. As you climb over the top of the hill, you are suddenly hit with miles and miles of tree covered mountains, weaving opal rivers, villages clinging to steep slopes and endless blue skies, but today upon reaching the top, there was nothing but cloud. Absolutely no visibility beyond your fingertips. And then whilst we sat and drank some 熱紅茶 and warmed ourselves up, the clouds cleared for a brief moment and we got this little shot of perfect...and just like that, it disappeared again.
Determination Always Wins! 🙏🏼🤞🏼👌🤨
When Your Plans Have To Change Last Minute Because Of A Decision Out Of Your Control ... Never Give Up!!😎
Yesterday Our Trip To @tiritirimatangiisland Was Cancelled But We Were So Determined To Get There, @jabeswic and I Went For It Again Today and Just WOW!!! Being Immersed In Native Wildlife All Day Was An Absolute Treat😍😍
We Felt So Lucky To Be Enjoying Such A Wonderful Island🌴🏞🐧🌊🌳🌦
Nature Really Does Ease Your Mind and Channel Happiness Into Every Vein In Your Body 🎉💖 #getoutthere#enjoynature#behappy (Thank You @jabeswic For Saying “Vic ... I’m Gunna Take Photos Of You... Stand Over 👉” 🙊😘)
The colors of Mexico. Even though Sayulita is Mexico’s version of Main Street, Disney, I return there for the #tiendas and the #helado . And the colorful everything. It’s totally doable in three hours, plenty of time to split the day with another activity. I like to stay in nearby #puntamita away from Americanized Puerto Vallarta, but close enough to PVR to make this a long weekend escape from my home on Southern California. #localcolor#pueblomagico ✨ #vivamexico#micorazon#getoutthere#livethislife
In hindsight, the icy steps up the tower weren’t the greatest idea we’ve ever had. But the view was worth it. So was it really that bad of idea? I mean I’m obviously not dead yet (@sherfie see what I did there?)
This river with its glacier water, that's what gives the ice it's blue hue. I could have walked this river for a mile just snapping pictures. There are so many amazing things about Alaska, I am enjoying be here. There is so much to see.
My journey... A picture taken two years after my total hip replacement, a bucket list goal to run a Spartan-type race achieved. And in my age bracket, finishing in the top 5%, with a simple goal of "pass people more than I get passed." I achieved that, too, passing more Millenials than I thought could be possible! 💪
The reason I share this, is my latest adventures have brought me to @opcharliemike, a veteran-owned new small business that launches Thanksgiving night at midnight over at OperationCharlieMike.com.
I have been asked to help build out a merchandise assortment for the company, that focuses on celebrating one thing - The Human Spirit and it's ability to overcome amazing obstacles and seemingly impossible odds.
A broad umbrella, no doubt. You might be under that umbrella. PTSD. Cancer survivors. Depression. Amputees. Mental abuse. Addiction. A burn victim. The list is endless. The list of obstacles, even longer.
We don't know WHO we will attract along our mission, who will Charlie Mike or "Continue Mission" with us. But one thing is certain - those that fight against the odds, never quit when told they can't succeed, get knocked 👇 nine times, but get 👆 ten - Operation Charlie Mike will celebrate you. Will share your story, your successes, and if you desire, even your failures.
If you are curious, if belonging to a community that celebrates your spirit, your goals, your adventures appeals to you, please follow @opcharliemike. And, if you find some cool merchandise (oh, I think you will!) and want to support our mission with your wallet, that would be great! 😉
So, I get to have my other leg cut off and reattached with a "cueball" for a femur head December 28th due to avascular necrosis. But you know what, tomorrow I'm going to the gym. See you there!👊👊👊
