The tranquility of the sight on an evening of heavy snowfall belies the lingering danger looming in the peaceful winter landscape.

Photo by @argonautphoto (Aaron Huey). This is a burning car I narrowly escaped. From my second of 20+ assignments for @NatGeo magazines. This happened while working for @NatGeoTravel in Quintana Roo (Mexico) when a truck appeared at a dead stop in the middle of the highway with no lights on. I ended up swerving off the road and broke apart the whole underside of the car. I escaped with everything but my passport and sunglasses. I watched it burn for two hours. The metal turned red hot after 30 minutes and I couldn't help but imagine myself inside. #Adventure!!!

Another picture full of peaks, but we couldn't resist. This is the Parque Natural de las Bárdenas Reales in #Navarra #Spain #Europe. A desiccated landscape of blank tabletop hills, open gravel plains and snakelike gorges. This fantastic image was captured by a member of our @lonelyplanetfr office, @corapac.

👆👇Wall Climbing👆👇 I am JUST strong enough to do this. If you look closely, you'll see I struggled to get my shoulders right over my hands (which is our goal)! 💪 1⃣ hands down, feet on wall at 90 degrees 2⃣ squeeze glutes to lift leg and stay on one side until fatigued 3⃣bend knee and open hip to strengthen and stretch quads Really a great way to get a lot done at once. If you can't quite get at 90 degrees, start with feel on floor and walk up the wall slowly over time! Feeling strong? 👍
