I met Roni Rodrigues and his wife Hester on top of Zhangjiajie National Park in southern China. The park is renowned for its hundreds of karst pillars, which make for some fabulous scenery. In fact, James Cameron was supposedly inspired by Zhangjiajie when he made the movie Avatar. One of the mountains was even officially renamed to Avatar Hallelujah Mountain.

Still at the beginning of an open-ended trip around the world, Roni and Hester were busy filming hour upon hour of footage with their quadcopter drone. I sat down with Roni outside of his hotel in the famous town of Yangshuo to record this podcast. Roni was an inspirational character who always kept a positive attitude about the world.
