Tomorrow I get to celebrate two amazing people in my life, as my brother gets married to his lovely (and fellow girl boss @livelovelashwinnipeg) fiancé in the same spot me and my husband did almost 3 years ago, in a place that will always feel as dreamy as this one to me for that reason ❤️✨
I’m going to be in and out of WiFi zones for the next few days but don’t worry; orders will still be going out due to an amazing friend of mine who’s a pro 💪🏻 and if I miss any messages I promise I’ll be crushing some coffee and catching up with you as soon as I’m back on the 27th ☺️😘 Thank you! 🙏

I remember sitting at this bar and looking out the window and just thinking to myself, “I can’t believe this is my life.”
I love to travel, and as bummed as I am to not be an official mermaid, I know in my heart-of-hearts that it’s for the best because it means I can still control my life and travel whenever I want :)
Sometimes, the universe gives us the EXACT sign we need! Today, I got that sign that said, “You’re already doing the right thing, and you need to stick to your path.” 💕
I have always enjoyed taking vacations. It is so much fun to do something outside of the normal day to day activities. As I got older and took longer vacations to places further away I started to want to just keep going, keep seeing more. After this I have built up the desire to travel full time and have actually found a way to do it! I am now traveling more than ever before, spending more time away than I do at home. In the near future I plan to have no home to return to and become a true full time traveler! If you want to learn more about the steps I have taken to get to this point then click the link below! I would love to show you how you too can have this life!
I spent last week in Costa Rica so far off the grid that I felt I’d fallen off the edge of the earth and left my old life behind, instead joining a jolly troupe of eternal nomads. I woke at dawn most days to the roars of howler monkeys in the jungle. I watched a dazzling sunset with my own eyes rather than through a phone camera lens for the first time since I can remember. After an especially epic (and gorgeous) 8-hour hike through Corcovado National Park my bummy knee was treated to a healing ritual with estrella leaves from the jungle. I looked at the clearest midnight sky I’ve ever seen through a telescope and saw a wildly flaming supernova (maybe?). I might have met the happiest person in the world: a mostly toothless sculptor who lives in a home without walls, who proudly shows off the venomous snake living in his backyard, and literally jumps up and down with joy when he sells one of his carved wooden birds. I made new friends with some wonderful humans and a whole lot of insects too. And none of those things were even on the carefully curated itinerary that had me dunking my head under waterfalls, jumping into swirly swimming holes, riding a horse down a white sand beach, snorkeling alongside quiet islands, eating the most amazing food (locally grown and made with love, of course), and meeting the incredible entrepreneurs of the Osa Peninsula who are sensitively balancing the growth of their community tourism projects with an understanding of how much potential - both positive and negative - the future holds for this little slice of unspoiled paradise.
Saturday night I landed with shock in what looked like a blizzard at Newark. My face sunburn has started to peel off, making me look like an old man with a white five o’clock shadow. And today, 30 minutes after I arrived at a coworking space to face reality and catch up on work, the office caught fire, the hallways filled with smoke, I was evacuated and then ushered out onto a cold cement sidewalk in downtown Manhattan feeling momentarily lost in my own hometown. At least I have hundreds of photos to turn to. And so many stories to come. #rudeawakening#puravida#lokalstory @lokaltravels
happy birthday to this little (really little) ray of sunshine ☀️ what can I say about this girl? her smile and enthusiasm lights up and lifts those around her, and I'm happy to call her my friend, travel partner in crime, and soul sister. 💙 coast to coast and oceans apart, love you always! may 25 bring you all the joy xxxx
Quando ero bambina mia mamma mi portava sempre in giro. Mi caricava sulla Panda 750 rossa e mi portava sempre da qualche parte. Poteva essere da mia nonna, dalle sue sorelle, dai suoi fratelli, da gente conosciuta nel 1970, dai cinesi, dai pugliesi, dai vecchietti, dalle suore, su e giù per la Toscana, a volte prendevamo anche il treno, e mi portava in giro, non ci fermavamo mai. Il primo bellissimo viaggio di cui ho ricordo eravamo io, lei, sua sorella maggiore che aveva 22 anni più di lei e la sua sorella più piccola che aveva 7 anni più di lei. Noi 4, direzione Trieste. Che emozione, che avventura! Quanto mi sembrava speciale quella pensione miserissima dietro piazza dell’Unità, quanto mi sentivo importante per aver visitato un cimitero di guerra. Non dimenticherò mai dove ero quando mi dissero che era scoppiata la guerra in ex Jugoslavia: ero su un letto di quella pensione triestina, in chi tornammo più volte. Non ci avevo mai pensato, ma forse questo mio vagare con le bambine è nato proprio da quello che mi è stato insegnato in quegli anni: che la migliore avventura è quella che si vive con e per le persone che amiamo. Il motivo per cui oggi sono qui ❤️
Buenas noches 🌸
*Exploring the caves of Malta* Stumbled upon two caves turned church in Malta so far. This is something familiar to me from Southeast Asia where caves are commonly temples of worship or places of prayer and meditation. 🙏
