#1 ICE DIVING in Lake Baikal by @smallsasha

"The challenge of diving Lake Baikal comes from the conditions- freshwater, cold temperatures and steep vertical drops. I’ve dived many vertical walls in warm saltwater and after over 100 dives in Indonesia, I never thought I would have a problem with buoyancy, but here in Lake Baikal, I felt my body plummeting down the side of the 120-meter wall. This time, I kept Dima’s words in mind, 'when you dive Lake Baikal, you dive to look inside yourself.'
'Be calm, be rational, be strong. Control your body- use your lungs. Control your mind- never panic. Control your equipment. Remember your training.' "

#2 Wedding Day - Thai Style! by @nathen007

"It's interesting to see how Thailand mixes its own traditions with external influences to create their own style and it's so different, but at the same time, so familiar to a foreign observer such as myself. Thai weddings still remind me though, of being on a movie, or TV drama set with the lights, cameras and makeup people rushing around, touching everything up and keeping things as perfect as possible! The devil is in the detail."

#3 We Slept Under a Motorway in China! by @timezonejunkies

"We decided on spending our first real night wildcamping in China in a tunnel under the motorway! How romantic!? Do you remember that we said it was windy? Well it still was when we were trying to set up our tent and tunnel had now become a wind tunnel... We ended up having to put both our big bags and small bags in the tent just to prevent it from flying away! There was no posssibilty of using the pegs and the ground was concrete."
