My first real Patagonia sunrise was written down on a list of experiences never to forget. What’s on your list?

Each melting iceberg holds a little bit of mystery in its shape. For every crack, serration, arch, cave and pool we find on the surface, a bit of the story of how it came to be unfolds. Maybe it dragged itself across a rock, flipped over and over, collided with another larger berg... or simply melted during the midnight sun. I love studying these shapes. Theories?

A Guanaco & it’s young Chulengo take a moment to examine us atop a windy ridge in Parque Patagonia. It didn’t matter how high or remote you climbed, if there was grass, a Guanaco would be there. To survive in this harsh terrain these animals have to be resilient. We silently watched this family eat for hours as males fought over mating territory. I’m excited to finally be able to share more of my experience in this park and the conservation efforts by the in the following weeks. •

chrisburkard: Even when surrounded by all the beauty in

Even when surrounded by all the beauty in the world there are moments while traveling that can feel incredibly lonely. Mostly when I know I have loved ones at home I had to leave behind. I sat down this week & talked about how I cope with these experiences & others while working on the road for long stretches of time with my friend Rachel as apart of her Podcast series. For anyone who wants to learn more about balancing travel, family, work & some thoughts on conservation... check it out. . Link in Bio or here: apple.co/2fLgfD5

chrisburkard: Many hands make light work. I’m fascinated

Many hands make light work. I’m fascinated by cultures where this proverb can come to life. Hard work is humbling and the need to support one another through it tends to transcend race, religion, sex and many of the other barriers we create in every day life.

Moving under the pressure of a breaking wave can be addicting. There is even an acoustic sound created can change depending on the ocean floors surface. Shot years ago in Tahiti w/

chrisburkard: If there is something I have learned about

If there is something I have learned about exploration it is that often the greatest journeys you ever take will be the internal ones. Deep inside yourself. In the end its not about the photos you took, waves you rode or the mountains you climbed... its about how the experience changed you & forged into somewhat of a better or different person. That process takes introspection, sometimes a lot of it. This is the time of year where I start to fill up notebooks & emails threads with potential expedition locations. Sometimes there is such little information that the planning process feels like I’m trying to decipher a hidden language. From tiny Russian Islands in the middle of nowhere to the ultra remote tip of South America & many desert landscapes in between, my list of places I want to explore has grown exponentially. I know I will never get to them all.. but one can always dream. I wonder what has been on your must explore list? • My next expedition will hopefully be this upcoming spring alongside my friends at , a brand rooted in exploration for over 100 years.

I’ve found that often right before the Ocean humbles you (in this case it was a waterhousing to the face & a wrestle with the reef) it typically shows you a beautiful perspective. It’s one of those rare places where things can be incredibly peaceful and almost hypnotic one second then total chaos the next. In India.
