Travel in one second with those 15 Instagram accounts

Instagram feed is pretty much what you make of it, since I love travel, adventure and photography, I thought I would share my personal* favorite accounts (adventure seekers, world travelers and amazing photographers of mostly nature / city / street / wildlife) and the windows they open for us to see the world through their lens in one session. These are in no particular order.

@highsteph - Steph Davis is a climber, base jumper, wingsuit flyer. What I love about her, is how active and courageous she is. I would love to be a wingsuit flyer one day, for now, I settle for her beautiful photos.

@cristinamittermeier - Cristina Mittermeier is a photo journalist. What I love about her is her range in photography, which resonates with me a lot. From people, to landscape, to wild life to underwater photography. This woman shows you the world.

My 2015 compiled in a 128 seconds video!

You can't really fathom how much you travel until you try to compile videos that you took throughout a whole year and squeeze them into a 2 minutes video. It's definitely a trip down a memory lane, a great way to remember a whole year and the amazing and interesting times you've had with great people (or even alone sometimes). These trips are both for business and personal, but I try to make the best of it even when I am traveling for work.

Hope you enjoy the video! And please let me know if there is a destination that I've visited that you're keen to learn more about. I have shared many tips on several locations I've been in, so feel free to browse through the blog.

Discover the cultural, traditional and artsy side of Bastakiya in Bur Dubai

I haven't been traveling much the past month, so I thought I would spend my weekends discovering Dubai and its surroundings. And I have to say, it has been super pleasant. Expect few posts on that, and this is the first in that series.

My friend was visiting Dubai so I decided to take the day off on Sunday and show her around. To my surprise, I ended up discovering Dubai along with her. We decided to go to Bastakiya (located in Bur Dubai). Now I know everyone has heard of it, but weirdly enough there's still quite a few people who haven't been there. Here are some some photos from the day, with a caption to describe it and why I recommend you visit it. And I highly recommend you do!

The Artsy part:
