I’m sure you’ve heard of hula hoop superstar Marawa the Amazing: she has spun hoops on stage with Major Lazer and Olivia Newton John (not together — that would be weird), on runways for Kenzo, and made it to the semifinals of Britain’s Got Talent. What you probably didn’t know, though, is that Marawa is also an accomplished Travelette!

“I grew up with nomad printed in my genes”, Marawa writes on her …

 What a ride it’s been, those last 10 days in New Zealand. I’m writing this from my flight back to San Francisco, still buzzing from the crazy load of impressions and experiences I’ve been able to collect over the past few days. The pain in my upper right arm puts a smile on my face as it transports me right back to the feeling of sitting front row rafting down …

In about 230 days, four girls will travel from Monterey Bay, California to Honolulu, Hawaii. To set a world record, they aim to cross the 2,400 mile distance within 40 days.

I met Nick Law, an outdoor athlete and photographer, during my last summer holidays. He was in charge of recording the surfers’ life at Pure Surf Camp in Moliets et Maa (Atlantic Coast of France) and I was absolutely captivated about his work.

What I love about photography is the fact that it can take you to places you’ve never been to and open up worlds you might have never discovered yourself.

Snowboarding in Norway is good.
No, really it is.
I never thought I’d type that sentence after ten years snowboarding in the Alps and only in the Alps, but yes, snowboarding in Norway is good.
