Alex Ojeda, a Mexican-American creator with over 8.4 million followers on TikTok, is known for two things: traveling around the world and finding the most thrilling and turbulent water slides to go down. He's filmed himself riding massive alpine coasters in the United Kingdom, flying down a mega-tall water slide in Texas, and whizzing down a frightening glass slide in Dubai. In a recent interview with Insider, he said he aspired to one day own his own water park, which he said he would name "Ojeda Bay Water Park."


Quin Gable is one of TikTok's biggest "Van Lifers," a term for people who live out of motor vehicles or trailers. Gable documents her life abroad with her two cats, along with all the various critters she finds while exploring, like a penguin on a beach in South Africa.

In a tour of her van, she showed off how she outfitted it with lights of multiple temperature tones and extensive storage compartments.

@quingable South Africa's Penguin Beach This has to be one of the most magical moments in my life. We were at the beach and all of a sudden, a cute lil penguin waddled on over to us. We ended up walking across the entire beach until he made his way back into the ocean. Location: Boulders Beach, Table Mountain National Park All of these penguins are under the protection of the Cape Nature Conservation.
