This morning marked the conclusion of this falls program in Tuscany. After a day of trains and retraced steps I will return to Florence with a densely foggy head that resembles a worn and well loved dull knife.
My plan will be to embrace the beauty of the next day and a half before heading to France for the final adventure of the season.
The past two months have tested me like an exam I’d spent years studying for. I’ve never been a perfect student but such effort always has its rewards. #courage#becurious#ladytraveler#sometimesyoumessup#itsok#italy#forgetful#tuscany#modena
Happy bday to me 🎉🎂
Today’s been the perfect day, starting from celebration with friends at midnight and then all day with bae @sandy_plankton.yo who made a funny treasure hunt all across Rome to find my gift. I followed all the hints through places important to us, just to find out that the actual present was... try to guess 😉🙃
Shanghai, China | January 2018 🇨🇳
It was raining or cloudy every day I was in Shanghai, but thanks to my dear friend Eunice who lent me her umbrella (which I returned 6 months later in New York 😂) and my waterproof @longchamp bag, I was all set 👍🏻 Missing all my friends who went back to work 💔
✨🌈 Tired of trying to cram her sparkly star-shaped self into society’s beige square holes, she chose to embrace her ridiculous awesomeness and shine like the freaking supernova she was meant to be! 🌈 ✨
What price are you willing to pay for greatness?
Achieving greatness in life tends to come with the sacrificing of your comforts…
The more you get rid of those “time wasters” the more you’ll move towards achieving those BIG goals. 🙌🏻 So put down the remote and stop binge watching Netflix…
Refrain from going out every weekend and spend a little less time aimlessly scrolling through your feed.
If you Change Your Habits, you’ll Change Your Life! 💯
People always ask me “how do you travel alone?” “How do you know where to go?” “Aren’t you afraid?” If I were to wait on someone to come with me, I’d never get to see the world. Time doesn’t stop for anyone. I never know where to go. I just walked across the border today to Belize and I still don’t even know what hostel I’ll be staying at. But I do some research before hand, read up on blogs, so that I have an idea of what it will be like when I arrive. It’s like I’m always in survival mode, fight or flight, constant critical thinking to be able to make it to the next stop, destination, or even home base for the night. And when I accomplish something that has been on my list for so long, such has seeing the Tikal, Mayan Ruins, I feel proud of myself, and that I can do anything I set my mind to. Yesterday I took a 10 hour bus to the city of Flores, met some amazing people along the way, and then explored the ruins. Then this morning I took a bus to Belize. And now hopping on a boat to the island of Caye Caulker. Am I afraid? Eh sometimes when I have to walk alone at night or early hours in the dark. But scared isn’t the word, I get a sense of nervousness, to have to be on my toes. I’ve learned more through these travels then I ever have in all my years in school. There’s no other way to explain the feeling traveling gives me. But all I know is I’ll keep chasing that high, because this travel bug will always be hungry. 🗿🌎🇬🇹🇧🇿
