Photo by @andrea_frazzetta  | Old Cairo, Egypt. Two artisans in the pottery district of Al Fustat are playing domino during a break from work. This ancient area that hugs the Nile is right in the center of Cairo's heart. Old Cairo is a part of the Egyptian capital that predates most of the city that surrounds it. It was the nerve center of the Islamic world for a long time, with its importance peaking in the 14th century. Today, many ancient traditions carry on in this part of the city, including clay pottery. In these streets, the secret of workmanship is transmitted from generation to generation. The clay used in the traditional workshops is sourced from Aswan, which is about 1,000 kilometers south of Cairo. In the past, the city's quarries provided the granite for so many of ancient Egypt's prominent sculptures.

Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto  | The first cave we worked in during this year's Greenland Caves Project expedition was called Crystal Palace. We had managed to climb into it on the 2015 expedition. Accessing it required several hundred meters of ascent up several active scree slopes. For every two steps forward, we took one step back. Everything moved underfoot. When we reached the top the difficulties were not over, as we then had to traverse a smaller but highly exposed scree slope to reach a narrow ledge, before accessing the cave. We protected ourselves across the exposed areas by installing a hand line to which we clipped into.

Photo by @max.lowe  | Whenever I thought of Hawaii I definitely didn't think of the mountains that I experienced while exploring the island of Oahu this past spring. The lush, jungle-covered mountains contrast with the beauty of the inlets, bays, white-sand beaches, and crashing coastline balances the immense beauty offered by the islands. Here, hikers make their way down through the jungle slopes looking out and down the infamous North Shore of Oahu. To see more from my travels in Hawaii follow me @max.lowe.

Photo by @lucalocatelliphoto  | Although spectacular, glaciers in Nordvest-Spitsbergen National Park, Svalbard, remind us how fragile our environment is. Climate change is causing these ancient giants to melt at an unseen pace. Arctic sea ice has thinned significantly over the past half century, and its extent has declined by about 10 percent in the past 30 years. It is crucial that we find new ways to live on our planet while respecting the precarious balance of nature and climate.

Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto  | When the very word of a place means “faraway heaven,” you really can’t go wrong in terms of a travel destination. Believed to be the original birthplace of Polynesia, the island of Raiatea is a tropical paradise with palm-fringed lagoons and hidden temples. If you need a change of pace from the turquoise blue islets then maybe a hike through the lush mountains will inspire you to search for the islands numerous waterfalls and breathtaking vistas. Recognized as the most sacred island in the Society Islands chain, Raiatea’s rich history and exceptional beauty will keep you coming back for more.

Photo by @mborowick  | One of the many incredible cliffs hanging over the Eastern Sardinian coast is Pedra Longa. The words “Pedra Longa” mean long stone, and when seen from afar looks just like that–a long stone placed vertically in the Mediterranean Sea. #italy  #sardinia  #archeology  #Mediterranean  #europe

Photo by Spencer Millsap @Spono  | The aurora borealis dances over the historic S.S. Keno, docked in Dawson City, Yukon Territory. The classic steamboat was used from the 1920's to 1960 carrying minerals, cargo, and crew from Stewart City to Mayo Landing. It sits as a museum and visual marker of a boom era not so long ago.
