3. Don’t forget to write a caption letting us know where the photo was taken and why this is a special place. Photos that tell a story are kick-ass!

As we were approaching the South of Chile, we got a feeling we were almost at “the end of the world”. And somehow, we wanted to go further…“, A&Z


Takin the leap! Woohoo!

Takin the leap! Woohoo!

Jumping out a plane over Palm Jumeirah in Dubai is one of the most radical things I’ve ever done. Needless to say this would be the first of many adventures!“, Ashray


In the Amazon

In the Amazon

Sitting at this view point over the Amazon, the so-called “lungs of the Earth”, I feel really small. But it’s that sense of detail that allows you to introspect and look within yourself like never before!“, Zara

“This picture was taken on Sunday.

I moved to Arizona because all my life I’ve wanted to take off with two suitcases and move to a city far across the world where I didn’t know a soul. 

When I sat on that mountain on a daylong road-trip with my new friends, I realized that at least once in our lives, we all need to pack our bags and leave without knowing where we’re headed.”
