It all started because GoPro selfies are what the people want to see!
I know, I know right. I spend much of my time trying to get ‘the shot’ with my canon DSLR, throw it up on the net from the likes of FB and Twitter all to gain more interested in a dreadfully ugly mug shot I took of myself being dubbed a selfie.
So as I lashed out and brought the GoPro for my adventures, mainly to create travel videos of myself getting up to some crazy things which you can see on my youtube channel, but the GoPro selfies have become the apparent thing to do now also. Initially I felt like a dork, or at lease a loner for capturing shots of myself from country to country, however I have gotten quite used to it now, breaking out with GoPro selfies here, there and everywhere.
So without blabbering on too much, check out the GoPro selfies below which will include some short descriptions of how the hell I got into that situation and why.
Being high on the bucket list I finally got to swim with the whale sharks. So here I am in the Philippines swimming with two of my buddies either side of me. Quite easily on of the greatest experiences ever!
At the beginning of the year I moved over to Japan to snowboard some world class powder for 3 months. Here I am boasting a beautiful day on the hill in Niseko
Partying it up in Osaka with a couchsurfing mate (on my right) and a friend of his (on my left). Here we are sucking back some ‘strong xeros’ that can be purchased at any corner store
How could I visit Beijing and not visit the famous Bird’s Nest which was built for the Olympic games when Beijing were lucky enough to host
Here I am taking a break on the Great Wall of China whilst doing my 5 day solo hike that went pear shaped quite quickly
Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) are huge in Japan, it is one of their most favoured seasons for these types of flowers. Little do they know, here, where I am in Beijing China, they have far more Cherry Blossom flowers with far more colour! Sshhhh don’t tell them though, they wouldn’t be too happy knowing this ;)
I finally got to visit Hawaii this year with my two best mates. Here I am up high on the Halekala crater in Maui
Hiking the peak for some fresh lines after a huge evening dump of snow over Niseko. Quite possibly the best day on the hill for sure!
Backpacking through the Philippines I came across this super cute little guy would wouldn’t leave my shoulder for a solid 25 mins. If only I could of brought hime home with me . . .
Mid leap off the 233m high Macau tower, such an awesome feeling!
Another day of sight seeing in Beijing, China before i was on my flight down to Hong Kong for more adventures
Free diving on one of my island hopping adventures with the turtles amongst the crystal clear waters in the Philippines
One fine day on the hill up in Niseko with clear blue skies and Mt. Yotei (volcano) in the background
Visiting friends and sight seeing at Fushimi Inari in Kyoto, Japan. One of the nicest cities in Japan to visit
Can’t wipe the smile from my face after a very exhilarating bungee jump in Macau
Another quick little selfie from below whilst freediving with the whale sharks in the Philippines
A standard day backpacking Asia, from busses, trains, planes and ferries. Gotta love travelling Asia
I love this shot of Japan, cruising down the hill in deep fresh powder on a perfectly sunny blue bird day. This for me is what dreams are made of!
Here I am trying to keep clean and avoid illness in Beijing China, this is on my way to the main square and the forbidden city
Taking another break on the Great Wall of China as the sun is about to start setting off into the distance I rest up before my hike continues on
Mr. Turtle came out to play in Shark Bay up on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii when I was visiting there back in July
An early morning to view the sunrise way up on Mt. Warning on Australia’s east coast. A must do hike if you are road tripping the east coast of Aus
I was not impressed upon reaching the beach in China with all these rules and number one being no surfing, how could they rob people of such enjoyment! Too many rules China, too many rules.
Past that hideous hair style you can look down upon the sky scrappers of Hong Kong from my viewing point up on Victoria Point. A must do whilst in Hong Kong, China
Getting deep for a dive in Borneo where the visibility wasn’t amazing but the see life made up for that
Last but not least I am going to leave you with the selfie of myself and Kama the surfing pig in Hawaii from when we were out partying in the Waikiki bay for the July 4th festivities called floatilla. Highly recommended if you are visiting Hawaii during that time of year
