This was taken in an extremely remote part of Kaokoland, Namibia. Nicolás Marino, who is currently travelling the world on his bike, said there were no people for miles. There were, however, lions – he could hear them calling in the night! The fire was used for more than keeping warm, it also kept the wildlife away.

9. The surf spot
