Zeta spent the first 5 months of her life in an animal shelter & has never seen the world outside the refugio walls 🐾 Discovering her country with us is pretty exciting (& sometimes also overwhelming) for her as she learns and sees new things every single day 🚐 In the first days she was afraid of cars, other dogs and loud noises 😅 basically all the daily things she didn‘t know! Walking through the city was a challenge, as she would freeze in shock 😬 For us it’s so exciting to see how fast she’s developing, learning & growing, through her new gained freedom and she, in turn, is showing us the pleasure in the little things in life 🙏🐶
Ahhhh Baños, one of our favourite places in Ecuador for sure! We hate to compare places but it really reminded us of Queenstown, New Zealand. A small town with lots going on and great vibes 🤙🏼 This photo was taken on the stairs up to La Virgen viewpoint, a nice hike up one of the surrounding mountains, where you can get a great areal view of Baños 💚
Sunset over Huanchaco, it's really beautiful when the sun comes out here, sadly as we're nearing winter it's only too infrequently we see colours in the sky and the gorgeous giant pink sun sink into the glistening sea. When the sun is out though the whole town comes to life, volleyball on the beach, surfers with giant smiles across their faces, the smell of barbecues in the air and row upon row of happy beer drinks sharing large bottles, drinking from plastic cups as they munch down on tasty street food and lounge back listening to the not so distant music blaring from a nearby carboots that's no doubt maxed out with gigantic speakers booming out the bass, a must in Latin America.
Hope you’ve all having a wonderful week beautiful peeps!
COLORS OF SALVADOR, BRASIL. Street art of Salvador, Brazil
• Salvador is the capital of Bahia, Brazilian state with the most African influence (candomble black magic, percussion – batucada, martial art capoeira to be mentioned among - Google will help to get a better idea about this rich heritage and I'll write more about it in future posts).
• I stayed in Bahia for four months and for me Salvador is also the capital of street culture: art, music, theater, capoeira.
• Calangos aka Eder Muniz was my favourite – colorful fantasy paintings in hidden and exposed street corners. He’s an example of a person following his own way – self-taught, he does what he loves the most. He has participated in projects in Brazil, USA and Italy, teaches at school and is a head of the Movimento Calangos foundation.
ЦВЕТА САЛЬВАДОРА, БРАЗИЛИЯ. Уличное искусство.
• Сальвадор – столица бразильского штата Баия. Среди его населения много потомков африканцев, что ярко проявляется в культуре: черная магия кандомбле, перкуссия – батукада, боевое искусство капоэйра и т.д. Google поможет узнать больше об этом чудесном наследии, и я также буду писать о нем в будущих постах)
• Я провела в Баии шесть месяцев и, по моему мнению, Сальвадор также можно назвать столицей уличного искусства.
• Калангос, также известный как Эдер Муниц, - мой любимый уличный артист. Он пишет фэнтэзйных существ, которых можно найти во многих уголках Сальвадора. Калангос не имеет художественного образования, но всегда стремился заниматься тем, что любит. Он преподает и руководит общественной организацией Movimento Calangos.
When in Salvador, try to find and share a pic of his wonderful creatures with me!

Today marks one month that my primary partner and I have been rockin’ digital nomad life while living in Colombia. 😊 A couple days ago I connected with an inspiring woman from a female digital nomad Facebook group who left the security of her soul crushing federal government job to travel the world with her 9 year old twins. Tales of their "world schooling" adventures inspired me to make a list of some things I’ve learned so far in this accellerated school program of living abroad...and I figured I’d share my top 5 with you-
Lesson #1 : 💲🤘💲 You can save money through traveling-
The other day after eating a huge breakfast of arepas, bunelos (donut-like treats), sausage, eggs, beans & rice, a chicken & veggie stuffed empanada, orange juice, and coffee my partner and I realized we’d spent less than $2.50 each in US money...and pretty much everything is cheap like that! Since being here I’ve been watching money accrue in my account, giving me hope that I’ll actually be able to pay my taxes in full in April.- A lot of people think that finances are limiting them from seeing the world, but the truth is that those limits are largely feigned barriers people create in their own minds. Even with kids my new friend spoke of ways she's saving money, including getting prescriptions and healthcare needs met at much lower costs. If you're feeling stuck in a 9 to 5 grind open your mind and freedom may follow.- -
Stay tuned for lesson #2 - -
That incredible feeling when the jungle is A L I V E, and so are you. 🌴🌊
Colombia 🇨🇴January 16 - 22nd! Just three spots left. Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? #mundoadventures ⠀
Hay dos cosas que odio.
1) LOS PUTOS CABLES
2) que instagram te corte las fotos.
2 cosas que amo.
1) el arcoiris falso ya que estaba en una ubicación chota, y no me quedo otra que inventar en esta foto
2) el cielo y lo colores 😍
Going to be wanging on about the fact that this time last year I was pottering about in places like this A LOT over the next couple weeks. Mainly because I miss it but also because there’s still an absolute shit tonne of forgotten-about photos in my camera roll.
