“Waking up at 2:30 am to prepare to climb my first active volcano in Bali, Indonesia. The last eruption was in 2000. We climbed mounds of old lava and rock through the pitch black night until we reached the summit at 5,665ft. Making it to the top at perfect timing to see the sunrise.”

“This is probably one of the most overlooked cities, but one of the most beautiful: Bilbao, Spain. With its amazing mountains, lively culture and incredible history, everything about the Basque country and lifestyle is stunning.”
