The Road to Akre / الطريق الى العقرة 🇮🇶
Just shared a new YouTube video on how I put together my IG stories - a topic I know many of you have been patiently waiting for. This series of images come from my travels in Iraq. While exploring different parts of Northern Kurdistan, my friends and I decided to visit a historic town along the Niveveh Plains called Akre. Since it’s beginnings (10th century), Akre has always been a small place with breathtaking views and a rich history. Be sure to check my IG stories & the new video to learn more, links in my bio! 👋🏽

Go where you feel most alive 🍃 On our journey across Japan with @mercedesbenz we came across the Hosono Highlands. Once there, an endless rainfall sweep across the valley - the mood was just perfect. With the storm, the landscape began to render its beauty, pumping fresh air into our lungs and reenergizing our imagination. This experience with #JapanExplorers is one I’ll remember for a very long time. Hope you like these photos, have a great weekend everyone! 🙋🏻‍♂️

Beast mode 📸 Japan has a very fascinating and multifaceted culture; truly timeless, a place where ancient traditions are fused with modern life. Our team began our journey in Tokyo and quickly embarked on our adventure as the #JapanExplorers. From the narrow streets of Tokyo and onto the tough terrain, we put the new @MercedesBenz #G500 to the test. Find out more on my IG stories!

Hello Tokyo 🇯🇵 A couple of months ago I went on a secret assignment with @MercedesBenz and @MuenchMax to Japan. The goal of this project was to explore and document the culture, technology and natural beauty of the island. I’m thrilled to finally share some of the content here and on my IG stories - be sure to follow along on our adventures!

Let’s go back in time ⏳ It’s true when they say, no visit to Cairo is complete without a stop at the Khan El-Khalili bazaar. Easily one of my favourite places to explore in the city - you really began to feel transported centuries back. The smell of spices, the hustle and bustle of trade, and all of the street decor make every corner interesting as the last. I spent a sold day here jumping from one shop to another - ended up with a handful of silver, jewellery I’ll appreciate for a very long time. Big thank you to my friend @nesma_h for showing me around 😊

I don’t want this caption to be too long, it’s all documented on my IG stories and YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy the content, links in my bio! 🙏🏽

Hello February 👋🏽 don’t forgot those goals you set for the year, one month in and some of my friends have already given up. Don’t be that friend 😅 Currently preparing for my next trip - thought I’d share more architecture photos from New York. Can’t wait to get back out there next month, should I plan a meet up?

Currently roaming around Toronto with @mattih and @mauricideharo. We are frozen, it’s -  14. Stay warm my friends!

True form of power 🇪🇬 I can’t begin to explain how much I enjoy reading about ancient history. The Sphinx of Giza, built 4,512 years ago, is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and head of a human. Cut from bedrock, the original shape has been restored with layers of blocks. It is the oldest known monumental sculpture in Egypt. The face of the Sphinx is generally believed to represent the Pharaoh Khafre, who reigned for roughly 26 years during the 4th dynasty - the pyramid in the background was also built for him. Thankfully we’re in 2019 now, so here’s a selfie to commemorate how far we’ve come 😅

Q & A opportunity 👋🏽 I get asked all the time, what do I travel with when I’m on the road. I try to curate my gear specific to each location I visit. Depending on the mood and style of the city or place, I then think about how I would want to highlight its features to tell a meaningful story. Sometimes this means bringing my DSLR and at times, maybe a film camera. If you have any questions regarding gear or travel, leave your thoughts below! 😊

🇪🇬 I blinked twice at the sight of this view. As a child I was fascinated by the Great Pyramid of Giza, always pressing my face against the tv as national geographic would highlight the remarkable wonders of the ancient world. The pyramids perturb 146 metres high, carrying with them aged limestone / granite and the tears and sweat of hundreds of thousands who were enslaved by the Pharaohs that ordered them. Even from a distance I could feel the years of history. Have a great week everyone! 🐪

The other day, I woke up to 100,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel - I couldn’t believe it! A lot of hard work went into making those videos, thank you all for the constant support, it still blows me away. I also wanted to thank @longines for working with me towards my goals over this past year. Paris was incredible, and I can’t wait for Hong Kong next few month! Specials thanks to my friend @Sambisso for always making me look sharp 📸 #LonginesMasterCollection #EleganceIsAnAttitude 🚨 SideNote: New Video on YouTube, 2018 recap!
