Well those good old seasonal blues have really started to sink in and I find myself craving another adventure. At times when I just feel like curling up in bed and eating junk food until Spring arrives, I look back on moments like this surreal sunset at the Taj Mahal, and I find motivation. When I travel, it reminds me of who I am and who I want to be, so remembering those feelings now, when everything seems dark and cold and futile, brings a sense of purpose back 💜
I don’t mind a little rain, especially when I‘m traveling in a vibrant and crowded city like Hanoi. It adds a certain depth to everything, saturates the colors, creates reflections, and gives people a certain sense of urgency and excitement.⠀

Kyoto's Temple of the Golden Pavilion is iconic — but the structure that stands here now is not the same one that was built in the 1300s. During the early morning on a July morning, a 22-year-old monk burnt the pavilion to the ground. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But the Zen temple was rebuilt and restored to its former glory. It may be even more beautiful than the original structure 📷: @salange21⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

During the “Explore Belize” trip I traveled on as a G Ambassador of Change, I was so honored to experience the student-led bike tour of Caye Caulker, Belize. This social enterprise program is called “Bike with a Purpose,” and it enables students to learn skills for jobs in tourism and conservation, as well as earn money for school. Our lovely tour guide showed us many hidden gems on the island, like the seahorse farm and the humane society. It was a beautiful look at the island from an islander’s perspective, as opposed to the tourist perspective. #gambassador2018#gadventures#planeterra#planeterrafoundation#bikewithapurpose#magicalstorybooktravels#cayecaulkerbelize

I’ve been doing a lot more group travel since I started my Bearfoot Theory Group Trips a few years ago, and I gotta say, it’s pretty nice having all the logistics, like permits, transportation, campsites, etc all set up for you. All you have to do is show up with a good attitude and be ready to walk and make the most of your vacation.
What are your thoughts on group travel? Love it? Hate it? Curious? Any destinations you’d like to see me offer in 2019?
