New on 500px : Adventures Tale by Sebastian_Wahlhuetter by Sebastian_Wahlhuetter

When it comes to adventure, for me the key is to be able to adapted to the unexpected. Adventure often implies being on far and remote destinations however in my opinion it is more like a state of mind. Leave your comfort zone and you will find endless opportunities literally around your corner.

This image is already well known to many people. Here are some background infos if you haven’t read it yet:

“This dog just appeared out of nowhere and followed us for an entire week during our trekking trip in the Himalayan outback. He always used to sleep in front of our tent and guarded us in the nights. When I decided to get up at 4 a.m. to climb the next 5000 m peak for sunrise he accompanied me as well. On the top he was sitting for the entire 30 minutes on this place looking straight into the countryside. I’m normally quite reserved towards dogs, but this one became a real friend to me.

New on 500px : MACHU PICCHU VISTA by margeauxferreira by margeauxferreira

After trekking the Salkantay Mountains for 5 days, I finally arrived at Machu Picchu. Having read several books on the subject and looked through countless photos, I admit I fully expected the scene to be grand. But in truth, but nothing could have prepared me for the experience of it. Machu Picchu might just be the most awe-inspiring place I have ever visited. Even in my exhaustion, I wanted to stay, forever. It is as close to heaven as I imagine one can get. I remember thinking that if they’d let me stay, I would never, ever want for anything. It’s not just the pure and utter beauty of the place, the amazing view, or that it is surrounded by mountains and water that makes it so incredible. Standing there, so close to heaven that one can almost touch the sky, light seems to filter through and drown you in a way I have never experienced. It was blissful. It is a place I carry in my heart always.
