Sheikh Hamdan: 37 travel photos that show how intrepid the Dubai Crown Prince is

It's the Crown Prince of Dubai's 37th birthday today, and so we're celebrating with 37 photos of him exploring the globe

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, turns 37 today.

Sheikh Hamdan is known for his love of fitness, photography, food and travel, and he shares his many journeys around the world with his 8.7 million followers on Instagram (via his Fazza account).

His Instagram bio says it all: "Every picture has a story and every story has a moment that I'd love to share with you".

The royal has millions of followers, but he only follows 145 accounts on Instagram and many of those are photography and travel-focused Instagrams, another sign of his passion for exploring and capturing those moments.

So, to celebrate his birthday, here are 37 photos of the Dubai royal exploring the world, from the lakes of Norway to the glaciers of New Zealand, and from the plains of Uzbekistan to the skylines of the United States.
