sgalpin74 After an early morning hike above the large Buddha niche, it's pretty special to set up office in front of the best view in Bamiyan. Shout out to @allenskratch and the team at @skratchlabs for supporting my work and my vision, you're here with me in spirit! #skratchthesummit #useyourvoice #afghanistan #buddhas @kingnoorla 12h

sgalpin74 This is what pure joy looks like after recovering 15 stolen bicycles in Afghanistan from two local crooks, I mean 'businessmen'. These bikes are for the girls of Bamiyan, not some asshole with a vendetta and a debt. Speak softly and carry a big stick my ass, shout loudly and come with a truck. @stevebouey #freethebikes @livcycling #pedalarevolution #afghanistan #corruption 2d

sgalpin74 Riding bikes with Afghan girls always makes me smile, but these three are really amazing. I rode with Zakia and Zahra last year in Bamiyan. So fun to have Fatima join in too! by @stevebouey #pedalarevolution @fatimahaidari47 #livbeyond @skratchlabs @livcycling @ospreypacks #IXIXI 4d

sgalpin74 These three smiled and waved as I rode past with three Afghan girls. I rode past and then turned around to say hi and take their picture. Bikes bring out the best in humanity. #pedalarevolution #afghanistan #bikedriven #livbeyond 5d

sgalpin74 Hot Kabul nights are best served with Venue jam sessions with old friends and new. Qasem Foushanji from District Unknown on bass with Markus MacGregor on drums. #rockandroll #kabul @qasem_darkartery 6d

sgalpin74 How to not to blend in in Kabul. Walk a pug. Afghans either loved it or feared it, but either way this snorting bag of wrinkles garnered lots of stares. #makingfriends #pugs #kabul 1w

sgalpin74 Yesterday I walked around one of my favorites places in Kabul, Darul Amon Palace and later met three new students for Kabul School of Rock. Today I woke to news of nearby kidnapping and heard multiple explosions rock the neighborhood, turns out to be an attack on Parliament starting with a car bomb on Darul Amon road. Afghanistan is never predictable, progress and heartbreak walk a fine line. #afghanistan #kabul @skratchlabs @ospreypacks @livcycling @primalwear #traveldeeper @cntraveler @matadornetwork 1w

sgalpin74 ....all that glitters isn't gold. Thank you to those that support my work and believe in me. The choices made to explore aren't always easy, but I wouldn't trade my travels for all the gold in the world. Excited to go 'off the map'again soon with another adventurer and nomad @wasfianazreen to explore and practice radical humanity. #nomadlife #useyourvoice @skratchlabs @ospreypacks @livcycling @natgeoadventure @natgeolive 2w

sgalpin74 Why trains are better than planes. An hour and a half 'layover' in London means lunch in Notting Hill and a stroll on Portobello Road before I say goodbye to Britain. #britishrail #trainsplanesandautomobiles #england #travelstoke #nomadlife #traveldeeper 2w

sgalpin74 Train from Edinburgh to the Cotswolds for one night may be too quick but it means I can walk my goddaughter to school through the fields and past the cows on the 'walking bus'. I am so lucky to be part of this family. #family #nomadlife #england @gerberagirl 2w

sgalpin74 Nearly two months into my nomad experiment. Giving up the stability of an apartment, and rent, for a few months of traveling with, and without, the chica means freedom and adventure are daily routine. This 'experiment' may become our new 'normal'. #traveldeeper #traveldeeper #scotland #travelswiththechica #nomadlife 2w
