Salar de Uyuni (Uyuni Salt Flats), Bolivia

Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat.

Escape To The Tianzi Mountain Nature Reserve, China

Pay a visit to a volcanic lake, Russia

It’s located in Kamchatka, Russia at the eastern end of Siberia and may very well be one of the most spectacular landscapes you’ll ever experience.

Take the Stairway to Heaven, Hawaii

It’s also known as the Haiku Stairs in Oahu, Hawaii and you’ll simply have an outer body experience as you hike the steep trail with a wooden ladder spiked into the side of a cliff.  Technically, you’re not supposed to climb it, but people do it, and we’d never dream of stopping a rebel like you.

 

 

Explore the inside of a Horseshoe, USA

The Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona is a natural wonder and quite possibly the best tour you’ll ever go on. This is where the Colorado River, which is hundreds of miles long, took a detour to carve out this spectacular natural formation that you simply can’t miss.

  • We could be the greatest team the world has ever seen 💫
  • Would you swim in ICE water?? I always found it challenging to film in subzero temperatures but I decided to go back to Finland to @visitkemi to experience a new town cruising the Bothnian Sea and swim in -20 degrees Celsius water despite everything. I filmed this short home made video using the @nokiamobile Nokia 8 using the BOTHIE feature and as always, trying to keep it as real as I can using nothing but the #Nokia8 to document my journey! 
PS: battery lasted much longer than I expected in freezing temperatures.

  • I really really really couldn’t come up with a caption for this INCREDIBLE treehotel!! So, I’ll leave it up to you because I’m TOTALLY speechless and yep, it’s called the UFO! 🛸 🛸
  • I think the polar regions, here, is the only place in the world where I can get lost in my own mind and find inner peace or silence... despite my love for diving and the sea. Before you sleep tonight, send someone a message, a letter, reassure them of your love or your friendship. Or, simply, say hello to a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while because you don’t remember anymore why... or someone you have not appreciated enough. Use this space to be honest with them right now, and be the reason someone smiles 💫
  • I got on board a 78m ship called the ICEBREAKER SAMPO built In 1961. Finland is the only country in the world where all ports would freeze and that means trouble for towns when there are no imports. The icebreaker would break the ice, making way for ships to pass. I got on board this ship and sailed into the Bothnian Sea! It was an experience like no other watching the ice break with temperatures than can reach up to -30! @visitkemi facilitated this for me and I can’t thank them enough!
  • I don’t have everything figured out and I don’t want to. But this I know, sleeping in a seaside glass room on a frozen sea in Finland in Kemi at @visitkemi is, me falling in love with my world over and over again.
  • Throwback to the time I was showing these lovely ladies around Dubai... and got stuck in a ditch. 😊
  • I've been working on a project with @nokiamobile with the Nokia 8 to create some homemade videos with the #Bothie feature and I created my first in Lebanon this Christmas. Everything was edited and captured by using the phone and I didn't feel the need to perfect it... But to capture both our happiness on the first snowfall using the #Nokia8 and always keeping it real ❤️

  • Back in the desert for couple of days but I didn’t dare swim in the pool - (it was a little too chilly for me) ...
and then, im going on an adventure on ice ❄️ Could you take a guess where I’m going to next?
  • Yesterday was the last day of Christmas 🎄 and I returned back to Dubai - We took down our tree and now it feels like 2018 kicked in and my calendar is almost filled up!! This year I promised to love even stronger and live, even through the most difficult moments. It’s about time...💫

  • Home: You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • Look how beautiful Lebanon is! 2018 is looking pretty great so far!! Surrounded by family, the greatest of friends, crazy sunsets and music, music, music! 🎈
It’s my last days in Lebanon and super excited for what’s coming up in January! A trip I’ve been waiting for a long time and finally get to break the ice and go! ;)
