Taking off today and going all the way north to the other end of the country in Salta. Temperatures will be much warmer. I got a nasty cold here so I’m looking forward to warm weather and sun.
Los Glaciares National Park is the 340th World Heritage Site I’ve visited.
http://instatbt.com/Place/skellig-michael/256060925Skellig MichaelI’m back in New York for under 24 hours. I just got in from Ireland last night and today I’m off to Argentina. While I’m in Argentina I’ll be visiting Iguazu Falls, Los Glaciares National Park, and Salta. I’ve been to Argentina before, but each of these areas will be new to me. Hopefully, I’ll also be crossing into Brazil for the first time ever.
My time in Ireland was very productive. I did the opening keynote at TBEX Europe and the reception seemed very positive. I always enjoy going to Ireland and hopefully I’ll be back a few times next year. Today’s photo is of Skellig Michael, which might look familiar if you saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
I’d also like to say a big Thank You to everyone who follows me. Today I crossed the 200,000 follower threshold on Instagram. It is flattering to know that there are so many people out there who enjoy my work. I hope to keep taking photos if you keep enjoying them!

This summer I had the pleasure of visiting the Island of Ulvon, which is a popular destination for Swedes (although few people outside of Sweden seem to know about it). The trip to the island is done via ferry, which can also transport a small number of cars. I didn’t take my car. I parked on the mainland and just went by foot as I was staying close to the ferry terminal on the island.
In addition to being an absolutely beautiful location, I was also able to try Surströmming, which is a delicacy in Sweden. It is fermented herring, and it is one of the smelliest foods on Earth (and I am in no way exaggerating when I say this. Go check the YouTube videos of people smelling/tasting it for the first time). It smells so bad, it is almost always eaten outdoors. It actually tastes much better than it smells. It is the Swedish version of durian.
The entire High Coast of Sweden doesn’t get many foreign tourists, but it is a very popular destination for Sweden, especially in the summer. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is noted for being one of the fastest rising places in the world. In geology it is called isostatic rebound. The land is literally springing up from being compressed from the glaciers which covered the land 10,000 years ago. It rises about 8mm a year, which incredibly fast movement for rocks.

What appears to be a flame is really just suspended dust particles in a beam of light.

http://instatbt.com/Place/wadi-mujib/263916922Wadi MujibInside the Wadi Mujib Canyon. This is one of the lowest rivers in the world, as it empties into the Dead Sea on the Jordanian side. In the Bible it was known as the River Arnon and today it is a place where people go canyoning. You can spend several hours wading up the river and climbing UP waterfalls (and of course back down). I actually lost a pair of glasses going down one of the waterfalls here.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a special announcement!
