My bed! :p

My absolute favorite place on earth is the south island of New Zealand. I was pretty nervous when I flew into Christchurch, but I found everyone to be really friendly and totally into the idea of picking up a hitchhiker from a foreign country. I met some Maori people who were very kind and I spent some time in Aoraki national park, which was life changing. I've never slept anywhere more beautiful in my life.

the boonies of northwest arkansas. I spent time out there on a homestead way out in the woods.
The air there is electric with energy, the copper beech trees are easy to connect with and I spent my days off exploring creeks and lime stone caverns.

That place blasted my spirituality to new heights, I still have dreams of the crows and a specific tree I spent time with deep in the woods.

what's called 'Patagonia' (land of the giants) - a handful of regions composing the southernmost portion of South America - starting with Rio Negro & Araucania provinces (Argentina/Chile respectively) in the North all the way until the approach with the Drake Passage, the shortest gap with Antarctica on the planet

graffiti in town by the lake - Villarrica (Chile)

one could for sure spend the rest of their life exploring between the places all along the Andes Cordillera, all the tiny islands & fjords on the Chilean side, etc etc...

the North of both countries also has a ton to offer! one day I will go to the Chaco Region too and I have a good friend in La Serena, Chile which is a good city, good times swimming there. South America as a whole I think is misunderstood and slept on

I've mentioned this a lot before, but the deserts of Australia absolutely blew me away...

The Florida everglades were unforgiving, dense, and teeming with all sorts of life. Hiking a flooded trail into the night, i saw bioluminescent algea light up around my feet with each kick of my boot.
