You always hear timing is everything, but I never really believed that to be true. Always felt you could make any situation good if you really wanted. But the more experiences I have, the more people I meet, the more I’ve come to recognize just how much more special the moments are when the timing is ‘right’. A few minutes earlier or couple steps late & you may miss that train, that interaction, that opportunity. So when the really really really good moments align just right, cherish them that much more because too many things had to come together to make it be! // #TajMahal #India #RealBirds #Grateful #PerspectiveChange #JustGo

Wish I had a better reason to be standing on this rock one snowy Kilimanjaro morning, but truth is I was watching the clouds hoping they’d clear so a glimmer of cell service would make it to 15k feet! 😂 // 📸 @mau.lens #truestory #kilimanjaro #snowdays #tanzania #sponsormyinternationalplan @att

I told myself my only goal for the year is to live in a way that I am truly proud of. I want to get to the end of it & feel I gave every bit of myself to the things that matter most to me - people, experiences, work, etc. Guess I’ve been curious how much we ourselves are really capable of & in turn, what kind of impact one person can actually make in the world! So when a friend texts you a month ago asking if you wanted to climb Kilimanjaro, had a hard time finding a reason not to try // #Tanzania #Kilimanjaro #TryAlways #JustGo

Always take a second to appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had! So many amazing memories have already come & gone this year, many I wish I could revisit. Time truly flies, luckily we are the pilot 😎// @united #Iceland #Skogafoss #ILML #Waterfell #UnitedJourneyContest

Blue Lagoon, Iceland 🇮🇸 I’ve always believed one of the truest ways to know someone is through their eyes. When words elude us, the eyes are often talking a great deal. So when you are uncertain what someone may be going through, start there. Not sure what mine were trying to say here but imagine it had to do with wanting a nap or smoothie at the time 🤙🏼 // #Iceland #UnitedJourney #BlueLagoon #windowstothesoul 📷 @kylepters

Giraffic Jams on the island of Sir Bani Yas in Abu Dhabi! This island was transformed into a nature reserve, giving sanctuary to endangered animals. It’s now home to over 16,000 animals & 2.5 million trees. Crazy to Safari through what used to just be a pile of hot rocks 🤙🏼 // #Safari #VisitAbuDhabi #SirBaniYas #MemoryLane #Punny

Travel tip - always brings skateboard to Iceland! I’m coming to appreciate the simple pleasures in life more & more these days - they are way more abundant & obtainable than you think! A flat white, meaningful conversation or few turns on a skateboard - hard not to find the joy in little moments like these 🤙🏼 // #Iceland #UnitedJourney 📷 @kylepters

Our character is who we are when we think no one is looking. This pod of dolphins would be playing in our boat wake regardless if we were watching or not & I couldn’t love the purity in that any more 🤙🏼 // #Maldives #Dolphins #Deep #ForTheLove @shangrilamaldives

Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working for something you love is called passion. Having little fun between shoot set-ups 🤙🏼 // #Maldives #Bungalows #WhatAreTheOdds 📹@ems_worldtravel @nikon_photography_ @forever_foreigners @shangrilamaldives

Sydney Harbor at night. What a whirlwind the last month has been but in the chaos of 16 flights & 6 countries, you realize how valuable patience is. Patience is the ability to accept delay, trouble or suffering without getting angry or upset. Not sure why it’s so underrated, but takes care of so much of the gnarliness that life can often throw at us! Grateful I’ve let things unfold in their own time & not in mine 🙏🏻 // #Syndey #Australia #UnitedJourney

Singapore, you wild! Reminded today that there’s beauty to be found all around us if we just see things for what they are & appreciate them for that! This place surprised me today 🤙🏼 // #Singapore #MysticalAF #Expectationless @chefmarcmarrone

Oh child, just do what you love because you won’t get this life again! 🎶 One thing is for certain - if you don’t take a chance, you’ll never know. It could work out, it could not. You could fail or get hurt. But maybe, just maybe, it’ll lead to the best adventure! Call it optimism or stupidity, but that’s a gamble I’ll take every single time 🤙🏼 // #Iceland #TryAlways #LoveFearlessly

Paragliding above Lucerne, Switzerland yesterday with my good homie @mchamleywatson was unforgettable! Been analyzing my time a ton recently & I haven’t been able to shake something a close buddy of mine said - “We make time for the things we love”. It’s been a great way of auditing what I’m investing in whether work or relationships. It’s shocking how much time & energy can be gained simply by channeling your efforts towards things that are moving forward. So pay attention, what truly matters will surface to the top & chasing those definitely seems like a better use of this life! 🤙🏼🇨🇭// #Switzerland #Paragliding #RiseAbove #UnitedJourney

You only fail if you do not learn from failing. Mistakes happen, but if you are making them, it means you are at least trying! From that you you grow, you develop, you improve. The past can not be changed, so give grace to those who are trying because we will all fall short - that’s a given. But in the end we shouldn’t be measured on how often we fall down, but how quickly we get up. So go out, give it a go & fail better 🤙🏼 // #Iceland #TryAlways #GiveGrace #SeeTheGood 📷 @kylepters

In a weird way, I sort of felt like we were kindred spirits. Rusty, you seemed like one wild & rad horse. Let’s both keep chasing the wind 🤙🏼 // #HairGoals #Iceland #Swag #LoveMe #BeFree

How come you never hear anyone say what goes down must come up?! My optimistic side can’t help but love that outlook more than the latter and apparently in Iceland, even waterfalls rise back up! Baby rainbow for good measure too 😁 // #Iceland #RiseUp #BeGrateful #ItllTurnAround

The greatest prison we can live in is the fear of what other people think. When I read that it definitely struck a chord! It’s so easy to question, doubt & often adapt into some version of ourselves that we were never intended to be. I feel that’s the biggest loss, that sometimes acceptance hinders us from confidently investing & growing in who we innately are. So create what you see, be firm in what you believe & don’t let anyone convince you to be something other than yourself. I hope I can be appreciated for me, not as a second rate version of someone else 🤙🏼 // #SanFrancisco #Alcatraz #BeYou #AlwaysEnough 📷 @kylepters
