Paddling away from our problems 🛶
Autumn in Montenegro 🍂 🛶
Wilderness Festival you’ve done it again! ✨ Swipe through for a few moments from my disposable camera that I took during my magical weekend at what is quickly becoming my favourite festival - From the wild lake swimming, to naked-streaking-cricket, Bombay Bicycle Club returning to stage, doing my first ever talk, a lot of late nights in The Valley dancing with a whole bunch of new friends and SO MUCH GOOD FOOD. It really did have it all this year. It was genuinely really cool to able to give a talk for @victorinox with @adrianbliss and @joshzoo about all our travels and content we’ve created - I was extremely nervous so it made me very happy to hear people enjoyed it and took something away. A big first and hopefully not a last! #myvictorinox #ad
A few pictures from my recent trip to Naples with @alixefaubert 🇮🇹🌞 We ate LOTS of pizza, did fancy organic wine tasting at the bottom of Mount Vesuvius, watched the sunset in Sorrento, took a day trip to the little island of Procida and explored all the cute streets of The Spanish Quarter. It’s all very beautiful and I highly recommend visiting.
Spent a lovely time in Naples recently wandering the streets eating LOTS of pizza and drinking vast amounts of wine. Exactly how you should spend your time in a new place 🍷🍕
When the moon hits your eye Like a big pizza pie, that's amore 🇮🇹
Spent the last few days exploring around Venice and learning about it’s history. It really is so beautiful, though quite hot and i’m absolutely covered in mosquito bites - but that’s easily numbed with lots of wine. Today was finished with a beautiful sunset ride around the canals. Bellissimo!
Here’s Josh hiking over a little mountain stream, through the clag (which we came to know basically means ‘mountain fog’ ) on Scafell Pike. I really love when moments like this happen, totally unexpected weather, lining up with the perfect backdrop. Definitely one of my favourite photos from the trip. The IGTV series we made for @Victorinox is up on their channel now! #MyVictorinox #Ad
Views like this just make me think of home and cups of tea. Proper british countryside. I do love the Lake District! . . . . . #folkgood #folk_life_mood #folkscenery #artofvisuals #discovernature #stayandwander #outside_project #wonderful_places #wildernesstones #liveadventurously #visituk #lakedistrictuk
Just been back through all my photos that I took at #PrimaveraSound and remembering how fun it was running around the different stages, dancing, shooting and getting lost in the festival. The best moment was my final night, coming off stage at Peggy Gou and looking back from the grandstand as the sun started to rise behind the stage. It’s definitely a good night when you catch the sunrise. Thanks so much @primaverasound Hope to be back again! @seat @seatuk #SEATSounds #CreatedinBarcelona AD
Mountain stream coming down from Snowdon. Really enjoyed this hike as we started in the dark and only got to see the landscape after we’d summited!
If I haven’t taken a photo of you stood on a mountain surrounded by clouds especially at sunset, are we really even friends? Think i’ve found my niche ⛰☁️☀️
Here’s a little visual teaser for you showing off some of the amazing landscapes I got to explore recently with @joshzoo and @adrianbliss for a project that’s being released over the next week. We climbed, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis as part of the Three Peaks Challenge with @victorinox to celebrate their travel campaign and documented the whole thing. There’s 4 episodes in total and you can watch the first one over on the @victorinox page! #MyVictorinox #ad
Did I go into hibernation from instagram until summer returned? Why yes I think I did. So happy to be flying somewhere HOT again 🌞 Arrived to Barcelona late last night and got treated to this sunset during the flight. Excited to explore round and have fun times at Primavera Sound festival. Also got a fun project I worked on to share soon 👀🎥 ⛰

One of my favourite underwater shots I got whilst on my last yacht week in Greece. I enjoyed being in the water so so much. Definitely my happy place 🐳
Giraffe’s are really cool and impressive until they have to drink water... Their necks aren’t long enough (hilariously ) to reach the ground so they have to awkwardly stretch their legs out to get to ground level. Not this giraffe though, he was cool.
Never in my life did I think I would meet a Maasai Warrior, let alone spend a week with one. This is Wilson, the best Maasai warrior, though I am biased. He has been the bridge for the Masaii tribe to the rest of the world. A man who has looked a lion straight in the eyes with no fear before taking its life. But he is the most gentle soul, always has a smile and honestly cracks some great jokes that completely take you by surprise. He was with us the whole trip to show the amazing impact that @metowe have had on the community around the Mara as well as introducing us to people from his own tribe. On our last night of the trip we had the lovely pleasure of making our own beads with the Masaii mama’s, we were taught how to become warriors ourselves (albeit bad ones - I could barely even lift the spear ) and we laughed and joked with him till the sun had set and all our arrows had been fired. Then, as Wilson gave us a closing speech for the day, over the hill completely unexpectedly, almost like a scene from a film, came the elders of Wilson’s tribe. They chanted, surrounded us, blessed us and started jumping as part of their well known traditional dance. Wilson told us how special it was to be experiencing this and all of the group completely broke down. It was an incredible moment, extremely emotional and something which I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I really hope to return to Wilson and see the continued amazing growth his community has. Also just because we’re great friends now and I miss him. Umoja ni nguvu
A few weeks ago I went on the most eye opening and amazing trip of my life to the Maasai Mara region of Kenya with @metowe - I can’t wait to share photos and stories of this trip as it really was a moving and emotional experience. Being able to see the beautiful animals such as these elephants was only a small part of the trip. We were welcomed into the most loving community, immersed in its rich culture, meeting the local school children, families and tribes and got to experience elements of their daily life there. Most importantly we really got to see first hand the massive positive impact that was happening on the ground and it was so heartwarming to see how @metowe are helping to empower communities, creating real hope for a brighter future. I have so much to tell and will try to share what I can from this life-changing trip!
“I’m just going to go for it, are you ready? I’ll get it first time.” …alas, this was the 6th attempt. But look at that incredible form - 📷: @matthewhague There honestly is no better to shake off the muggy shell of last nights self after a long night of drinking and dancing than launching yourself off a jetty into a lake. Genuinely was the morning ritual and I wish I could do it every morning in the city. @victorinox #HausOfVictorinox #MyVictorinox #ad
As shadows lengthen, pink hues of sunset fade away, we say goodbye to the daylight and welcome the enchanting darkness as we become creatures of the night. Dancefloors begin to vibrate, lights start flashing, people start screaming, there’s magic in the air. 📷: @matthewhague Wishing I was back to the wild madness of Wilderness this evening. Already planning to go back next year! Can’t thank @victorinox enough for the amazing time! #HausOfVictorinox #MyVictorinox #ad
