The underwater world can be so unbelievably colourful. What I always enjoy to observe while diving are the different kinds of stunning anemones. 🌊 Once again, this picture was taken with my GoPro and without a dive filter, so the colours are not as impressive as in real life. Nevertheless, I tried to get the most out of it while editing.πŸ˜… Can you spot Nemo? πŸ•΅πŸ½
While we were in Port Barton we decided to overnight on a deserted island. Apart from our group there were no other people around. There was no infrastructure what so ever. We only had our tents, water and food. Nothing more was necessary. Below us we had beautiful white sand. Above us at night we had this breathtaking starlit sky, without any light pollution. Sadly, my DSLR is not the best to photograph the stars. This is the best I could get, but I am still very happy with the result. 😊✨🌟 Who else loves to observe the stars? Do you know any of the names?
Just another drone shot from a paradise called #Palawan. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­
By the way, what kind of content would you like to see more on my Instagram? Or what should I focus on more? Drone pictures, portraits, landscape photography, more stories or even videos? 😊 Let me know in the comments if you have some feedback for me. πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ½
One of my most favourite things while travelling is to rent a motorbike and drive through the countryside. Not only is it a great way to get to see a place, but it also gives me the feeling of total freedom. πŸ›΅πŸ Who else loves to bike around while travelling?πŸ˜„
Finally I finished my YouTube video about Port Barton in Palawan. 🏝 You can find the full video and in HD on my YouTube channel "BackPekka" or by clicking the link in my bio. ✍🏼 I would highly appreciate your feedback to know how to improve myself. πŸ˜„πŸ™πŸ½
Langwieser Viaduct β€’ Canton GraubΓΌnden, Switzerland πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­ Spent a great weekend in Arosa together with my family. Sadly, the weather was not great, nevertheless I am happy that I had the chance to go skiing this season. β›·
Who of you loves skiing/snowboarding too?❄️
As you might have noticed I did not post much this week. Currently I am being snowed under with work from university and my two side jobs. Additionally, I am trying to edit a video from Port Barton which I will hopefully upload by next week. I could post stories and pictures daily, but I don't want to sacrifice quality for it. Therefore, I hope it's understandable if I can't post that much at the moment. πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ Nevertheless, this weekend I will go skiing in Arosa where I surely can do some nice pictures. πŸŽΏπŸ“Έ I wish you all an enjoyable weekend. What are your plans?😊
If you walk down the long beach in Nacpan, you will encounter much more than just the stunning pristine nature. Luckily, the local life is not being disturbed by tourism so that one can still experience the real Filipino life and engage with the kind locals. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­
I miss these untouched islands and this unbelievably clear blue water so much. πŸŒŠπŸ’™ Who would you take with you to this island? Tag him/her below ⬇️
This beautiful green spot is in the middle of the famous twin beach in Nacpan. Easily one of the most impressive beaches I have ever seen. 🌴 You can get here quite easily by motorbike from El Nido in like 40mins. 🏍 If you want you can also stay over night as there are a few places offering accommodation, for example tents on the beach. ⛺️ Who else would love to chill here right now? πŸ˜„
Since today is #InternationalWomensDay, I am dedicating this post to all the great woman on this earth. Especially those, who made me the man I am today. First and foremost, the four who always support me, believe in me and who I love the most. My grandmother, mother, sister and stepmother. ❀️

I will keep todays post short and end it with one of my most favorite quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi, one of the women who inspired me the most: β€˜Every kindness I received, small or big, convinced me that there could never be enough of it in the world. Kindness, can change the lives of people.’ πŸ’­ β€’

Which woman inspired you? Or which woman is the most important in your life? Let me know in the comments. πŸ˜Šβ¬‡οΈ
Story time ✍🏼: When I was in Port Barton with @adriantom and @de_sibesiech, we went on a island hopping tour. One of our stops was the Starfish Island. The boat dropped us there and the boat crew told us that they would go grab some stuff at the port and come back to pick us up (as we were planning to camp on an island afterwards). We were like: "yea, sounds cool". πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ When we arrived on the Starfish Island, it was almost as big as the half of a basketball court. However, as time passed, the water level started to rise. And rise. And rise. No boat was in sight. We were on the island for already two hours. So we started to build a small wall of sand around the island to protect us from the rising sea level. πŸ˜‚ Just in time, the boat returned and saved us. By the time we drove away, the island was gone... I guess we were lucky πŸ€πŸ˜‹
