Little throwback to last February in Namibia when bumping into elephants before breakfast was the default. Good times w / @erindinamibia
In a world where we have all the answers at our fingertips, some time in the Indian jungle was a reminder that there are still a few things that require patience.
It took us 7 days to get this shot. There’s no amount of rushing, googling, emailing or hashtagging that could have made this image happen any time sooner, just patience.
Cracked lips, thin air, ice-cold showers, irrational fears, burned skin, sleepless nights and vivid dreams, but worth it every single inch.

Sorry for the silence.
But the last 2 weeks in the Himalayas were busy.
Busy taking deeper breaths.
Busy silencing irrational thoughts.
Busy calming a racing heart.
Busy telling myself I’m ok.
And busy dealing with one of the toughest physical challenges I ever took on.
Because I’m not gonna lie about it.
We’ve been swallowed by these mountains and spit out again.
But only there, right at the edge of breaking, is where the magic happens.
Because when stretching your limits, you’re learning about the world and about yourself.
And that’s the one and only true definition of adventure to me.
In it’s purest form.
And I fucking did it.
From a very happy heart.
Never forget who has been with you from the start.
The camera is really only a small part of the experience. @erindinamibia
Last Friday was a very special day.
Right after dawn, we bumped into Kismet, one of the boldest tigers of the Kabini forest.
This mother of 3 has been hiding her little cubs deep in the jungle ever since they were born.
On Good Friday, she decided to take them out for the very first time.
Right after the sighting, when the news hit the rest of the park, our guide got hundreds of calls and texts.
Our car was the only car witnessing this amazing moment that lasted no longer than 5 minutes.
It was us and them.
No one else.
Right after that all 4 disappeared in the dense jungle.
These kind of moments is what I live for.
What a wonderful world.
Check my stories to see the little cubs.
