Diving in Mabul, Malaysia

So I went on a crazy streak back in 2011-2012. I was so sick of doing nothing, having boring friends, being a blank space in universe and seeing my life slip away between my fingers.

Bouddi National Park

The Lisegang rings is a phenomena I hadn´t ever heard of until I came to Australia. Over there it is pretty "common" (there are a few places around where you can see this).

Hiking in the Odle Mountains

Everyone that has an inch of an interest for hiking has seen that picture on Instagram: You know, that picture with a surreal looking mountainside, which is completely green on one side and dark, grey and hostile on the other.
