Gonna get a haircut today, so seemed sorta fitting to post a #throwbackthursday pic from a few years ago when it was really long... and apparently when I had no shirts. . . . . #tbt #modelling #fitness #longhair #viking #fitnessmotivation #gym #weightloss #abs #vikingstyle #longhairedmen #workout #gym #weightlossjourney #gymmotivation #hardwork #longhairstyles #shirtless

This is Treeman. He’s from Arkhangelsk but flew to Moscow with us. He is moving there as part of his mission to plant trees wherever he can across the world. Sort of a Russian Johnny Appleseed. He had giant wings too but they were still in baggage claim. And no that’s not makeup... that’s a tattoo on his face. #commitment . . . . #travel #treeman #russia #moscow #planting #ecosystem #travelphotography #trees #travelblog #reforestation #peopleyoumeet

That’s a wrap on the @arctic.open Film Festival. I’m honestly sad to leave. This has been a once in a lifetime trip. I will admit, I came with preconceptions about the Russian people but they were quickly proven false. Everyone was incredibly warm and welcoming. And there wasn’t a moment I didn’t feel completely safe. . Thank you to everyone at the festival and the citizens of Arkhangelsk who welcomed me (and our movie) with open arms. I’ve made new friends on the other side of the globe and that’s a wonderful thing. . If you have the opportunity to travel to Russia, do it. Politics are politics and people are people. If we realized this, the world would be a better place. . . . . . #russia #arcticopen #travel #travelphotos #travelphotography #arkhangelsk #travelblog #film #newfriends #russianslovetheirchildrentoo

A former bank in downtown Arkhangelsk, Russia. The city is a mix of the old and new. Brand new retail and residential next to early 20th century and Soviet era buildings. People explained how there is a conflict as the city works to figure out what history should stay and what should be torn down to make way for new buildings. It’s a similar argument waged in cities around the world. . . . . . #travelphotography #travel #Russia #architecture #travelblog #arkhangelesk #seetheworld #traveller #beatraveller #photography #arctic

“Truth” on the screen at the @arctic.open Film Festival, complete with Russian subtitles. . Audiences were incredibly positive about the film, not to mention passionate about discussing it. And not just “Truth,” but all the films. They talked with the filmmakers and with each other, often getting into their own debates. Amazing to experience. . . . . . #arcticopen #filmfestival #film #movies #russia #filmmaking #movie #arkhangelsk #travel

Weight lifting and cardio Russian style. A quick workout after the morning screening of our film. A chance to sweat it out, try to beat the jet lag before the awards ceremony and I get back on a plane and fly home. . Yes, I brought workout clothes to the Russian Arctic. Did you expect anything else? . . . . #travel #fitnessmotivation #russia #weighttraining #filmfestival #fitness #arcticopen #arctic #vikingstyle #sweat #film #movies #neverstop #hoteldvina #arkhangelsk

Getting interviewed by a Russian journalist at the @arctic.open film festival after the screening of a Truth. On the left is the journalist, the right my amazing interpreter who had to deal with my answers! Great audience at the screening and amazing reception for the film!

The film festival arranged a personal tour for us to a museum site of classic regional buildings that have been preserved in Arkhangelsk. Amazing to see wooden homes and churches dating back to the 1500s that have survived this harsh cold climate. Learning about how the people of this region survived and thrived... wow. . . . . #russia #travel #arkhangelsk #arctic #travelphotography #travelblog #history #architecture #arcticopen #filmfestival #seetheworld

The view from my hotel room in Arkhangelsk. That’s a billboard for the @arctic.open film festival. Pretty cool if you ask me. . Been up for the last 30 plus hours with a couple a few minute cat naps. Settled into my hotel room and getting some sleep before everything starts for me tomorrow. Hope they like my movie. 🤞 . . . . . #filmfestival #russia #actorslife #moviemaking #film #viking #arcticopen #arcticopen2018 #filmmaking #decemberinrussia #supportindiefilm #truththefilm #snow #travel #travelling #travellife

At LAX and just got through security but not without getting pulled aside for further screening. And why you ask? Did I accidentally forget to take a knife out of my carry on? Or too much liquid? Nope... Apparently bringing ten protein bars in your carry on raises an eyebrow from the TSA. I explained it was a 13 hour flight and they understood... after they checked each one was sealed! . Russia, here we come... . . . . . #travel #travellife #russia #filmfestival #travelphoto #airlines #aeroflot #arkhangelsk #carryon #luggage #travelblog #viking #arcticopen #theangryvikinggoestorussia #vikingstyle #fitness #proteinbars #kindbars
