Do you spa on vacation?
Depending on the type of vacation, a spa treatment can be the priority. If the goal is to relax, we’ll easily spend hours luxuriating at the spa.
If the goal is to relax, then a spa is the furthest thing from our minds.
In the case of the @ritzcarlton Rancho Mirage, we spent a full afternoon here. I sink into these chairs and finished a novel. I melted into the massage table during the second-longest massage of my life. And I refueled in the recovery room with a delicious salad, a glass of champagne, and one of those rambling conversations with my love.
It was heaven. And I can’t wait to return.

TRAVEL TIP: Instagram can be an incredible source for travel inspiration/itinerary help. Nusa Penida is a magical little island, and with the exception of a few places (one being Broken Beach - pictured here), the place is largely untouched by tourists. After seeing several breathtaking photos on Instagram, we added a few days on the island to our Indonesian itinerary - and we’re glad we did.
To get to Nusa Penida, you can take a quick boat from Bali, or its neighboring (and much more popular) sister island, Nusa Lembongan. Accommodation is spread out, so be prepared to travel a bit each day. New guesthouses are being built regularly, and we even had the chance to be the very first guests at one of these when we decided to extend our stay and our original hotel was sold out. Because the island is relatively new to tourism, however, the roads are terrible and shouldn’t be tackled on a scooter unless you’re quite confident. In good news, the roads are wide enough for a car, so if it fits in your travel budget, you can zoom past the slow scooters and onto your next picture-perfect stop on the island.
That one time in INDIA when we did a 6-day yoga retreat. Everyday we did 4-hours of yoga, meditation, ate all fresh vegan meals, and got a life lesson taught by our guru Swamy.
Some people may think that sounds awful but it was pure bliss for me. One of the things I love about my man is he’s so open and willing to try new things. And my adventurous spirit can always think up more crazy things for us to try!
India is one of my favorite places in the world. Contrary to what people think, it’s such a diverse country with some absolutely gorgeous very green places to explore. In the most southern state of Kerala where we spent our first week, there are beautiful lush green tea fields and national parks full of wildlife. And then there’s the tropical forest that leads right up to the sandy beach.
Have you ever been to India? If so, what part did you visit?
I've been M.I.A. because of my crazy work schedule and free time filled with some adventures.
A few weeks ago @jayforthestay and I celebrated his birthday with some needed time in nature. We travelled down past Bend to camp, swim, kayak and relax. Those days flew by and helped bring back some creative sparks and motivation for me.💥 What do you do when you need a break or motivation?
The Grand Palace in Bangkok was the first 'tourist attraction' I went to when I got to Thailand. Aside from all that gold and the detailed and decorated walls, all I remember was how crowded it was. I don't enjoy crowds and can get easily exhausted when I see a lot of people.
Introvert, I know.
But I guess crowds are the price we pay for visiting such famous spots, right? .
What do you feel about visiting crowded tourist attractions?
Everything in Switzerland is my favourite destination including this Glacier Canyon! 😍
Coming here makes me feel so refreshed, peaceful and contented! How I wish I can
continuously visit places which makes me feel so joyful. ❤️ Comment and like if you feel
the same! 👍

Tão difícil era achar um prato de comida que não fosse massa 😂
Era uma massa tão boa, mas chegou uma hora que tudo que eu queria era um prato de arroz, proteína e salada 🤣 mas não tinha.
Se tem um lugar no mundo que quero voltar varias vezes? Itália com toda certeza, fiquei 12 dias por lá, mas não foi suficiente. ❤️ #italianfood#italia#eurotrip#visititalia#wanderlusters#rome#viajantes
Which way is it leaning?

There’s no better place on earth than being with my George. 💕
It doesn’t matter if we’re in Melbourne or Mumbai, Bali or Bangkok... as long as we’re together. 😘👫✈️
After that everything else falls into place. 🙏

🔥🔥People are capable at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of. 🙏There is no such thing as too old or too young when it comes to chasing your dreams. There is no such thing as a right time or a wrong time, either. It is simply a matter of deciding what it is you want to do and taking the necessary steps to get there.Wherever we are in the world, and in whatever circumstances we find ourselves, only we can decide to take the leap of faith and make our dreams realities. 👊"When you want something, all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." 🌎What you think about, you bring about. If you put all your focus, energy and positive thoughts toward whatever it is you want, you'd be amazed at what opportunities come knocking. 🔥Whatever it is, however it happens, if you want something badly enough, it's as if the stars re-align and are only too willing to give to you whatever your heart desires. Call it fate, coincidence, beginner's luck or whatever sits best with you, but when you put that time and energy into something with all you have, you will manifest it into your life. 🔥People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams because they feel that they don't deserve them, or that they'll be unable to achieve them." 🔥For many different reasons, many people's dreams remain just that — merely dreams — for their entire lives. Why is it that we don't pursue them? Do we not all deserve to live out our dreams? 🔥Do we doubt ourselves and our capabilities, or do we doubt our own senses of self-worth? We only have one life and one chance at living exactly how we want. We need to believe in ourselves and in our dreams. We need to believe that anything is possible and that we, alone, can make it happen.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
