Every mountain is a goal, if you succeed, you set new goals. Had a lot of time thinking about stuff like this, because i was literally a half day alone in an alp hut. Can‘t wait to reach my next goal, Skitouring and afterwards in Summer alpine mountaineering.
Spent the day roaming around in the snow, rain, and sunshine today. Spring is an interesting time of year around here...
Day 1. With half a day recovery after a long 18 hour flight, I decided to wake up early, rent a car and drive the Great Ocean Road on my own. I was told the road was windy and narrow. I also had to face the challege of everything being on the left side.. even the steering wheel. The words "You're doing that on your first day, on your own" in shock still play in my head. But I definitely like to prove people wrong. Or I'm stubburn, whatever you want to describe that. These factors although seemed very large negative obstacles as I was hiring the car (I was freaking out), quickly became minute problems as I was on the road. The scenery was breathtaking the whole drive through. It changed from surf town to farmland to rainforest and ended at these stunning structures of The Twelve Apostles at golden hour. I was in absolute awe. I would say it was a solid first day out in Australia and set the stage for my whole trip. 🌅
On my short trip to Chiang Mai, I met this stray dog that casually saunters past the myraid of tourists and took up the most photogenic spots. Everyone was amused and I just stood there wishing I had his spirit of adventure!
You may be getting tired of seeing these but here's another one of my favorite northern lights photos I took this week in Iceland. I didn't realize it when I took the photo but my camera also captured a satellite in orbit. At least that's what I think it was. I know it wasn't a plane because it was silent with no flashing lights. I thought it was maybe a shooting star but my camera was set to a 20 second shutter speed so I figured it was a slow moving satellite. Everyone agree? Maybe it was a UFO. Pretty cool sight whatever it was... #RyanEricksonPhotography

The happiest tuktuk driver, and my buddy while I was in town! Pictured here with his traditional #Khmer “#Krama” scarf🧣(I love!) Great driver and very patient. Also enjoys an endless supply of sugar cane juice on-the-go🥤🧡
My first local Cambodian treat upon arrival, was cold, natural, fresh #sugarcanejuice🥤. My taxi driver from the airport stopped on the side of the highway to grab it... and from there, it became a warm-afternoon-craving throughout my days in the country. The sugar cane is propped up against the stand, and they press it fresh for you, over a cup of crushed ice. About $0.30 USD a pop! Refreshing and sweet. Remember to bring your own re-usable cup with you! Asian landfills are stacked high enough with plastic already! 🧡🧡🧡
