Meet The Lebanese Explorer Behind A Travel Video that Went Viral

Hadi Farah @mysloppyadventures

Hadi Farah is a Lebanese explorer, who has been traveling the world and sharing breathtaking photos. He has been to over a dozen countries – including Iceland, Japan, several states in the US, and more – and continues to share his adventures. “I’ve always had a thing for history and culture,” he says.

His pictures and videos from around the world are captivating, but there’s one in particular that stole the show.

It was featured on many accounts, too many to count. In fact, it was so well received that it’s been featured on Instagram accounts that have millions of followers such as Earth Focus, which has 4.8 million followers.

The post that went viral is the video he took at the Ahau Tulum resort, which captures the divine experience of walking through a large wooden archway masterpiece created by South African artist Daniel Popper.

According to Colossal, the artwork was constructed as part of an arts and culture festival in Tulum, Mexico. The installation is titled Ven a la Luz meaning ‘come into the light’. Beautiful!

Hadi had the opportunity to become well-traveled and gain knowledge along the way. He is an inspiration to many adventurers who aspire to do the same.

During one of his trips to Cuba, he met a kind man who gave him a message to send the world, and it was, “Don’t worry, be happy. Because here in Cuba, we are happy but we have nothing. You have the opportunity to go anywhere, but here it’s not possible.”

During this lockdown, surely many people will relate to that.
