#Norway is a visual experience. Endless waterfalls, sudden cliffsides, frozen fjords and my favourite, the not so tropical, white sand beaches. This is one place that deserves your visit and if you do, I’ve got an entire series to show you how 🚙 (but start saving 💰😅)
Flawless Moments, flawed realities. Instagram is a dangerous platform. Behind every seemingly perfect 4x5 photo is a real person who faces hardships, challenges, and heartbreaks just like anyone else. Having just had a challenging month myself, I can say that my Instagram life can sometimes show a rather inaccurate look into my life. On the surface, it may look like we have everything figured out and that we live a perfect life but in reality, we face the waves of life just like you. I share this because it’s far too easy to compare your day to day life to a dreamlike photo and let the comparison steal your joy. You may have noticed I have been pretty inactive on Instagram during this personal month and while it was mostly because I wasn’t feeling myself, I feel like it was the best part of all this. Now that I’m back at it, I will continue limiting my phone use and I have to say it feels amazing! I’m sorry if I haven’t been responding to DMs much but I think it’s for the best and I will try to check a few every now and then :) Life is far from perfect so cherish the flawless moments and learn from the challenges <3
How to get a cool photo: 1. Ruin your kicks 👟 2. Inhale dust 3. Remove 43 people 4. Ask @moretti to do it again

Happy Canada day everyone! Since I’m never home, I don’t have any pictures 🇨🇦... so here is me with 32,000 gates in Japan. Close enough 👌🏼
When in Rome 🛵 This city is easily one of the most “touristy” cities on earth but it’s not hard to see why. One of the obvious highlights was the food but another was our stay at the new @chapterroma hotel 👌🏼 Unforgettable time in Italy 🍕
Once upon a time, this remote part of Norway was a fishing village. Today, @hattvikalodge has to be the best place to experience the midnight sun or the Northern Lights 🙏🏼
Cool summer days by the fjords ⛰ Fjord: A long, narrow inlet with steep cliffs, created by a glacier. Pronounced as “fi-ord”. One thing I came to learn on our recent trip to Scandinavia is that their entire written language looks like a pocket dial. Moral of the story, if you can’t spell well, keep your head up because you might be fluent in Swedish or Norwegian 🙏🏼
This week I experienced my first ever midnight sun. In the summer months, Northern Norway has sunlight 24 hours a day. The sun literally doesn’t go below the horizon for 2 months. Checked this experience off my bucket list and it surpassed my expectations in every single way. Norway really took me by surprise 💙 Pc: @whatthechic
Everyday we take risks. Leaving my job to start a travel channel with 2,000 subscribers was a risk. Standing on this suspended rock with a 1KM drop was a risk. But few people recognize that taking the “safe” option also requires a risk and that is the risk of not living life to the fullest. The risk of living a life of unmet potential. Life is full of risks but I’d rather take my risks where they matter the most. Thanks for helping us capture the moment @fredrikhelliesen / w @whatthechic ❤️
Japan has been the best trip of 2019 (ok tied with the Yukon) but this is a place you must visit at some point in your life. I just posted the 50 things you must know about #Japan so check it out if you’re considering making this your next destination 🇯🇵
We packed our tents, got on the motorbike and headed north to campout for sunrise at the top of Pinggan. From mountains to volcanoes, hard to beat this view 🌋 pc @thewanderfullyfe

I've been traveling a lot recently. India, Fiji, Japan, Malaysia, and Bali in less than 2 months and even though I’m constantly in trains, planes, and automobiles, I can't let that stop me from getting my work done and that's why @mophie and their incredible products have been essential in keeping my business going from the road. The juice pack access is a phone case that powers your mobile device on the go and the powerstation PD is a portable battery that charges your phone 2.5 times faster than your typical wall adapter. Just a few reasons I will be using these tools on many more trips #StayPowerful #Ad
To celebrate the big 1M milestone, I invited one of my subscribers on a all expenses paid trip. In just a few days of traveling together, we went from strangers to amazing friends and I would 100% do it again. These are just a few of the amazing moments on @juvaniis and I’s recent trip to Malaysia. Stoked to share the full video.
Nothing beats rising with the sun 🌅 Other than sleeping in.
One of my favourite things about my job is playing around with new camera tech. There’s so much innovation in the space and this trip I got to try the new @djiglobal Osmo Pocket. It wasn’t long ago I would have to carry around a 15 pound counterweight to get steady footage but now, it can be done with a gimbal stabilized camera that’s so small, it can slide into your pocket. These are some of my favourite moments in Japan shot in 4K 60fps and 1080P slow motion using the #OsmoPocket. My personal favourite is the second video 😂 #ad
Sounds, smells, colours and flavours. India was a sensory overload but was by far one of my most memorable trips yet. My newest video is inspired by the endless sounds of India and the incredible music from @epidemicsound - Epidemic's massive copyright free music library has been my go to source for all my YouTube and Instagram music and... I just launched my new album for travel filmmakers. Search "Lost LeBlanc" and check out some of my favourite Epidemic songs. The India video just went live so go check it out and see if this could be your next trip.
Once a year for just a short two week period, the cherry blossoms open up in Japan. People from all around the world come here to witness the beautiful “Sakura” blossoms and it’s actually the busiest time to visit Japan. We visited a local park in Tokyo just after sunrise to get this shot and I think moments like these make the extra high pricing all worth it 🌸👌🏼 This photo was taken by my exceptionally talented friend @moretti 📷 defs check him out
The Marble Jewel of India 🇮🇳
My favourite thing about the island life is the sunshine but my second favourite part are the storms. Never a bad time in the tropics 🌴⛈
Explosions of Colour 🎨 Happy Holi to all my Indian friends 🇮🇳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ps. Did you know dogs are colour blind? So sad. #holi guy holding camera 📷 @malthezimakoff
Definitely my craziest birthday yet 🇮🇳 Finally got to see India for myself and wow. There is nothing in the world that compares. From cows roaming the streets, a symphony of honking cars, to monkeys swinging around telephone wires, nothing can prepare you for this and that’s what I’ve loved about it so far. There is so much beauty in the chaos and it was incredible to take a small glimpse of the daily life here in Old Delhi. Time to head up to Agra 🚂 Snapper 📷: @malthezimakoff
We threw a dart at a map and this is where it landed 🎯 Any guesses? 🗺 pc: @malthezimakoff
Nothing can beat waking up to the sounds of the Amazon 🍃 @amak_iquitos
Escaped the modern skyline of Dubai to come explore the more traditional side of UAE 🇦🇪 @albaitsharjah
Is it even a Euro trip without a Vespa? Excited to show you how much you can do in #Paris in just 12 hours. Video coming soon. 📷 and 🛵 @loic.lagarde
500K 🔥 Thank you for all the love 🙏🏼 Caption this photo and I’ll story my favourites. Here’s a couple of mine: “when you make it to church two weeks in a row” // “when the teacher randomly picks you to answer a question and you get it right” // “when my new Instagram pic gets over 25 likes” Now let’s get that 1M 🔥
Not your typical lake 🐬
Getting lost is one of my favourite things to do. Venturing into the unexplored and experiencing places few have heard of. 3 years ago I struggled with the rebranding of my social channels. At the time I was known as “Christian’s Travel Vlog” but I felt it didn’t communicate my brand. I spent 2 months writing ideas down and finally, a rather simple four letter word came to my mind and I never looked back. What word best describes you?
Haters will say it’s photoshop. I partnered with @SamsungMobileUSA to see if I could make just as good of a travel video with the camera in my pocket. Swipe left to see the Amazon come to life. Captured #withGalaxy Note9
The only heat out here is body heat 😛 Katy and I spent our 1 year anniversary up north in the Yukon and Mother Nature delivered us one of the greatest gifts, -27 weather and the world famous green lights 🙏🏼 Hope to come back soon.
One of my favourite finds of 2018. Here’s to another year of discovering new places and pushing new limits. Happy New Years everyone 🥂
Last minute New Years plans and she’s coming to Vancouver! Excited to pick you up in just a few hours @whatthechic ❤️
Was disconnected for 4 days from the internet. It’s nearly impossible to do it by choice so sometimes it’s nice to have a destination that forces you off the grid. At the same time, feels good to be back 😛🔌
Long distance is tough but it makes reunions that much more meaningful ❤️ We had an incredible stay at @belmondmiraflorespark in their presidential suite and now we’re getting ready for the Amazon 🐍
The world’s most beautiful destinations are not found where there are direct flights or paved roads. The best ones are often off the beaten path, up a mountain and down a ravine. For those who are willing to explore, the world will show you things you couldn’t even imagine. If you’re in Bali and want real and raw travel, get ready for this. Releasing my video to Java in a few days.
Be unique, be weird and most of all, be You because nobody accomplished anything great by being normal.
One of my favourite moments ❤️🌴
When I moved to Bali my goal was to travel to Indonesia’s most remote and beautiful places. 7 months later I finally made it happen with a trip to Central / East Java and a few days in Raja Ampat. This country is so full of hidden gems and I highly recommend stepping foot outside of Bali to see it for yourself.
Smoking Kills 🌋
New experiences are always a rush but nothing beats sharing them with someone special @whatthechic ❤️
Shipwrecked doesn’t sound so bad.
My tropical hideaway 🌴 Is this what perfection looks like? 🌈
