From our overnight campsite at Gich (3600m) in the Simien Mountains in Northern Ethiopia. In the distance is tomorrow’s lunchtime destination, the flat summit of Inatiye at over 3900m.

The Simien Mountains is home to some rare wildlife and we are hoping to catch a glimpse of the endangered Walia Ibex. The mountains are also the home to the endemic Gelada Baboon

FOROYA BJOR LJOST PILSNAR

On the sea cliffs next to Lake Vatnio (also known as Leitisvatn and Sorvagsvatn) on the island of Vagar in the Faroe Islands. A remarkable lake that empties out directly into the sea via a waterfall. Buying a local beer to take this picture was the hardest task that I have had to date, as there is a strict alcohol licensing system in the Faroe Islands with only 6 licensed outlets in the islands, with limited opening hours. However, you can buy light beers in several places and this brew is a mere 2.7%
