Curious human beings taking a peak what surrounds the main headland of Crescent Heads either checking on the waves or whales or dolphins during sunrise which wasn't up to my expectations as I hoped for ... catching a glimpse of them amongst the rugged seascape got my attention to capture .. not long till 2018 with much more to venture within australia 🇦🇺
Officially booked a camping spot somewhere in the southwest for this Sunday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It has a lot more 💦 and it is somewhere I have dreamed about going for the last couple years 😊 can you guess where we are going?

We know but a small part of the eternity which extends without measure, for how short is the memory of several thousand years which history gives us. But yet, from such meager experience we rashly make judgments about the immense and the eternal.
Little patch of life somewhere in Tonga! It was so special to see this fluorescent green soft coral alive and healthy and full of little guardians 🐠🐠🐠🐠; the traffic on the reef is hectic and everyone owns a piece of it haha every single fish is a character just as we are.
Showcasing the very best photos of Tasmania, thanks @tasmania
Fiery sunset skies contrast the shattered ice of a frozen tarn in this inspirational image of Cradle Mountain from @sam.ison.photos. One of the many beauties of visiting this Tassie icon is that you never quite know what you're going to get, with her ever-changing faces and atmosphere, no matter the time of year. It's no surprise that Austrian-born immigrant Gustav Weindorfer, the man who fell in love the with region and started the movement that resulted in its declaration as a national park in 1922, said “This must be a national park for the people for all time. It is magnificent and people must know about it and enjoy it.” We applaud your dedication, passion and vision, Gustav. And we thank you for sharing this shot with us, Sam!

5/8 🇧🇷 Sabe esse papo de mascar folha de coca? Isso existe desde que os Andes são os Andes. Claro que a galera adora fazer gracinha mas a real é que a planta, que de fato é originária da cordilheira, é sagrada e faz parte da cultura andina não só no Peru, mas em vários países. Quem já viajou pela Bolívia ou pelo norte da Argentina também já deve ter visto a galera mascando. É uma mão na roda para quem passa mal com a altitude e não é de hoje... Por também dar energia e ajudar com a fome, essas folhas eram justamente o segredo dos Chankis, os "mensageiros" que percorriam todo o território inca levando mercadorias, recados importantes e uma ou outra fofoca 😂
Uma porcentagem mínima da planta é usada na produção de drogas então nada que confundir com o costume sagrado dos Incas 🍃😉
. 🇦🇷 Mascar hojas de coca es una tradición milenaria de las culturas andinas prehispánicas. La planta es considerada sagrada y en su forma natural no causa ningun daño, mucho al revés…
cuando se mastica, la hoja ayuda con la sed, la fatiga y el mal de altitud 😉🍃
. 🇬🇧 The coca leaves have been used for centuries in the Andes to help with altitude sickness, hunger and fatigue. It tastes bitter and you can either chew or
drink it as a tea. You’ll also find all sorts of products made with coca leaves, like beer,
chocolate, cakes, etc. Only a small part of the plant is used to produce drugs, so we should not misunderstand a sacred Andean tradition 😉🍃
Sunset views on the long road back from Halong Bay to Hanoi. Seems to be more cars on the road than scooters this time around but still plenty of livestock to watch out for. Have you driven this road before?
