A throwback to May. Have you got the Tararua’s in your list to explore? Head to our story for a link to our insights document ‘A Walk In The Park?’ that breaks down the incident data. While this region is undoubtedly beautiful it can be a challenging and harsh environment if you’re caught out in the famously changeable weather. At this time of year there’s frequently snow on the tops and regular storm fronts rolling through making the backcountry regions really only suitable for experienced trampers. #makeithomenz 🏠🏔🏠 —- 📷: @rhockridge ・・・ “Missing these guys a lot at the moment. We’ve tried to get up here a couple of times recently by the weather hasn’t played ball, and you don’t want to mess with the Tararaus.”
We went diving at Lanai and the water was SO clear and the reef was so, so beautiful. If you’re heading anywhere with coral reef, this is a PSA that you NEED to use reef-safe sunscreen! Save this post so you can reference it later! 💦 ⠀⠀ Some sunscreens falsely advertise that they are safe for the reef. Check the ingredients and make sure you’re not using sunscreen with any of these: ⠀⠀ * Oxybenzone * Octinoxate * 4-methylbenzylidene camphor * Octocrylene * Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) * Methylparaben * Ethylparaben * Propylparaben * Butylparaben * Benzylparaben * Triclosan ⠀⠀ Mineral-based sunscreens with Zinc are usually a good option. I like @neutrogena’s SheerZinc Dry-Touch (SPF 50). It does take a few minutes longer to rub in since it is zinc-based, but frankly if you’re not willing to spend a few more minutes rubbing in your sunscreen, you’re contributing to damaging the coral and you don’t deserve to see the reef. 🙅🏻♀️
Go and explore all the castles and all the cities of this world. Learn Spanish finally, dance tango in Argentina, climb Kilimanjaro, taste all food in India, make a Balkan road trip, gamble in Las Vegas, drink coffee again in Bryant Park in NY or mint tea in Marrakesh ... One way ticket- that's all I need.
