As much as I love to travel and despite the long list of places I still want to see, being in London with friends and playing impossibly long games of trivia pursuit is amazing. Nothing like travelling ten thousand miles to realise how much you miss home. #homesweethome #lovelondon #gamesnight #sundayvibes #hangingout #boardgamesandwine at Shoreditch

We were treated to a little parade down the street where our hostel was. Unfortunately they were at it quite a bit before hand. It was a little puzzling to see and hear the dancing and marching music in front of a cemetery for hours. I wasn’t quite sure if it was some sort of funeral tradition but I think it was a coincidence! #chile #atacamadesert #sanpedrodeatacama #parade #chilegram #yourshotphotographer at San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Those darn flashy flamingos shouldn’t get all the attention! Little things are important too. #chile #littlethings #birdsofinstagram #chilegram #atacamadesert #sanpedrodeatacama #lagunachaxa #birdsofafeather #jj_forum_2172 at Laguna Chaxa

The colours of the atacama are a bit surreal. Pastel purples and blues and pinks and greens kind of blend together under an incredibly bright sun. It does feel sometimes feel like the light is playing with your vision a bit. We were out of the car for maybe 20 min when we were walking around the Laguna. There was a 40 min circle you could walk around the whole thing but we didn’t do it because between the sun and the altitude, it just felt a little bit impossible. Despite the beauty, the atacama is not a hospitable land! #lagunachaxa #flamingos #chile #atacamadesert #sanpedrodeatacama #yourshotphotographer at Laguna Chaxa

We had so much fun exploring La Paz! It was such a welcome surprise to the end of our trip in Bolivia. We arrived via an overnight bus from Uyuni and initially thought we only had 20 hours in town before a 3am flight out. Turned out we had miscalculated and actually had a whole extra day in the city! Spent it riding the gondolas up and down the sides of the city. After finding a place to stay for the night of course... #bolivia #lapaz #mountaincity #jj_forum_2164 at La Paz, Bolivia

Some people show up in a 20 year old Nissan Almeria...other people show up in a private chartered plane...but we all get to ski the same mountain... 🥂 #les3vallees #alpes #skilife #arrivinginstyle #nissan #thegoodlife #courchevel at Courchevel, Rhone-Alpes, France

I took this picture five years ago at a bar on top of a car park in Peckham. It has been the picture on my phone ever since. #summertimevibes #hipsterhangout #frankscafe #peckham #lovelondon #phonewallpaper at Peckham Levels

Took this photo (a couple months ago) from the deck of our ferry boat crossing Lago Grey (facing the Grey Glacier). I was pathetically glad I didn’t have to hike the 12k back to the entrance of Torres Del Paine. I am happy to go on these hikes but having the do the same trip twice seems... inefficient? #patagonia #chile #latergram #chilegram #torresdelpaine #greyglacier at Grey Glacier

Watching ice fishing from afar on Lake George. Richard and I saw people walking around on the lake when we were driving past and got a little bit curious. It was the first time for both of us to be walking out into a frozen lake this big. We kind of figured that if someone was driving a small tractor on it, it must hold our weight. Still. I have to say that I kept my distance from the bore holes in the ice. Completely irrationally, I also preferred walking on the snow covered ice over the clear ice. As if the snow was going to save me if the ice below cracked!? 🧐 #irrational #lakegeorge #icedover #newyork #roadtrip at Lake George, New York

We stopped by the Trapp Family Lodge (Sound of Music!!) during our little tour of Vermont on Friday. This was one of my favourite photos in the picture gallery. It’s not my photo! Just my photo of a photo. The imagery is just so very Americana. I am surprised this is Vermont and not the Midwest! #soundofmusic #trappfamilylodge #americana #vermont #stowe #stowevermont #climbeverymountain at Trapp Family Lodge

A view of the frosty trees from the lift! Today was bright and sunny and windless but don’t be fooled! It was MINUS 16 Fahrenheit this morning. My phone lasted for all of four photos before it died of the cold. Massive “slicks” of ice lurk treacherously on the pistes. This is what the locals call the slabs of solid, nearly clear ice that formed due to the rain on Thursday and Friday and then froze over the weekend. It was a challenging day. #iphonefreeze #coldoutside #ski #vermont #beast365 #killington at Killington Ski Resort

The Alchemist Brewery. I really liked the shiny tanks and the fun artwork. Richard was really more excited by the beer. #couplegoals? Btw, I did not figure out why the beer rail twisted. #craftbeer #thealchemist #shiny #beerlovers #vermont #stowe #brewery at The Alchemist

Rainy day today here in Vermont so Richard and I took a little road trip up to the neighbouring ski resort of Stowe. We stopped by the Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream factory for a tour and to pay our respects to my favourite flavour back in high school. Bovinity Divinity. It had chocolate cows!!! #benandjerrys #vermont #stowe #icecream #bovinitydivinity #chocolatecow at Ben & Jerry's

Warm and wet is how I would have described both the weather and the snow conditions today. There was however a strange orange glow effect from the sun with all the cloud cover that made it feel kind of like a perpetual sunset all day long. #cloudcover #skiday #vermont #beast365 #killington at Killington Ski Resort

Ski goggles always add this fantastic golden tint to everything you see while you are skiing (the whole point really). Maybe that’s why I never tire of the view while I’m up high. I cheated a little on this photo with the white balance but it is closer to what I actually saw today, golden glinting ice covering all the trees and bushes... #killington #vermont #beast365 #beastoftheeast #skilife #freeze #iced #mountainview at Killington Ski Resort

The view from the top at Killington, our first ski trip of the year. I am sad to admit that despite having grown up in Boston, this is the first time I have skied in the area. The experience however has been great. Snow conditions at the moment are pretty much perfect and the weather has warmed up from frigid -30 F 😱to a balmy +20 F. ⛷ #yourshotphotographer #vermont #killington #beast365 #beastoftheeast #newengland #skibunny #skiing at Killington Ski Resort

Fields of blue flowers far out beyond the horizon on our way up to the Altiplano Lakes near the Atacama. I didn’t quite realise how high we were (4000m) until I got dizzy from a short walk! #yourshotphotographer #atacamadesert #altiplano #chile #chilegram #sanpedrodeatacama at San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
