I posted some of these on my IG story, but I was super apprehensive about sharing them on my page. I don’t love my body. But then I had this insane realization, when I was at my tiniest ever - a size 4 - I still didn’t love my body. I can’t ever remember not wanting to lose at least 20 pounds or drop a size down. So I had this clarity that maybe it doesn’t fucking matter. Who goes to Bali for a spiritual awakening? Crazy. Anyway, had to go through a cave to get to this magic waterfall. And there is literally nothing cooler. •

I have never had a problem with my own company. In fact, I typically enjoy my own company over others (sorry friends!), which has enabled my anxiety & made me far too content. This trip really taught me how to step outside my comfort zone, and accept companionship. It’s weird that on a solo trip I would learn how not to be solo. Also, when you are alone you have so much time to reflect & plan accordingly. I am more terrified & simultaneously self assured than ever. Change is scary, but necessary. So many people come to Bali for enlightenment, and it’s because Bali gives you what you need. 🌸 •

EAT PRAY LOVE (Yes, we’ve already established...I’m the worst). 🍽🙏🏾💕
Wow, this was very high on my Bali bucket list. The purification ceremony at Tirta Empul in holy water. You pray, splash your face 3x, drink the water 3x, and put your head under 3x. You do these at each of the fountains, and some are even for specific desires (like new beginnings ahem). It was honestly one of the most spiritual experiences I’ve ever had. I felt incredibly moved & centred afterwards. And even more aware of my path than I ever have. I like to think it was the ceremony, but I have a feeling I just needed the moment and experience to provide the clarity to what I already knew. #newbeginnings •

CHIANG MAI / came for the elephants, stayed for the temples. So glad I came to Chiang Mai, I loved it here! The temples were amazing, the food incredible, the kindest people. A lot quieter, which I appreciated after the craziness that is Hanoi and then Bangkok. I got to watch at least 200 monks in prayer which may be one of the highlights of this trip. I’ve always had a hard time with religion, but I admire the love that Buddhism advocates for. And going to all of these temples has certainly made me feel something. •

I don’t want to play favorites, but here she is...this is Lucky and her mahout. All of the elephants have at least one personal mahout who spends all of their time with them until bed time! Talk about dedication. You can see how bonded and happy this beautiful girl is ✨ Lucky was a circus elephant, and lost her sight completely due to the spotlights. Now she gets to live out the rest of her life happy & free. •

🐘ELEPHANT NATURE PARK, CHIANG MAI / spent 2 days with these gorgeous amazing creatures. Elephants aren’t just poached, but also very commonly used cruelly at the hands of humans for the sake of entertainment - circuses, street performers, parades, riding camps. Please never support these industries. The processes used to break these animals in are disgusting and cause lifelong physical and mental traumas for the animals. We saw elephants with broken hips/legs/feet, missing ears,  blind, and heard the horror stories. •
•
•
I did my research to find a place that rescues these beauties while not supporting riding, as so many do. Many “sanctuaries” pride themselves on allowing the elephants to be rode without a chair, but unfortunately this is not good enough. Until recently Elephant Nature Park even allowed guests to bathe the elephants, but decided they want these animals to live as normal as possible on their own schedule. •
•
•
This sanctuary has rescued all 80+ elephants they currently have from the fore mentioned industries, and provide them a safe home to live out their lives in peace. The owner Lek is a true badass. We had the privilege of hearing her speak, and the passion is evident. Not only for the elephants, but for all animals. She reminded us that we can all do our parts by educating. That people can’t make the right decisions without the right information. •
•
•
Oh also, ENP is also a sanctuary for water buffalo rescued from slaughter houses, dogs rescued from the dog meat trade and those who have been abandoned, and abandoned cats. In the last photo you’ll see me living it up with the cats I almost took home. Truly heaven on Earth. Can’t wait to come back 💕 •

Seeing all of the world’s wonders ✨ Ha Long Bay / took an overnight cruise through this gem to wake up in paradise. Swam in the bay, explored an incredible cave, went kayaking through a pearl farm. Doesn’t get better than this. •

HANOI / I was beyond overwhelmed here. The traffic is insane - busy with no rules. Even at the few lights you just go when you please and pray you won’t get hit by a motorbike or car. There are also very few sidewalks because street food vendors & parked motorbikes litter the road. However, by the end of the day it’s these things that make me love this city. I think there’s a freedom in the blatant disregard for safety. Hurry now cause life is quick and you may get hit by a motorbike. Also, I could eat Vietnamese street food for the rest of my life. And everyone has been so friendly & accommodating even despite language barriers. Favorite moment of the day was definitely reading next to a sleeping elderly woman who put her bare feet up next to me on the park bench we shared. Not a damn care in the world, and she was tired (is what I think she said). Also, went to a lovely cafe for an egg coffee & the baristas leave personalized notes for you that definitely made my day. 3 black people. •

HONG KONG / 24 hour layover. Obviously not enough time, and can’t wait to come back. My only complaint is it didn’t seem as vegan friendly as the rest of the cities I’ll be going to. Otherwise I loved it. Very tourist friendly & equal parts nature & city, much like Vancouver. I saw 9 black people...so also equivalent to Vancouver 🤷🏾‍♀️. I landed early evening, and had planned on going to Victoria Peak for some views but it was cloudy with zero visibility! I was also super exhausted from the flight so decided to get food and go to bed early. Due to the lack of vegan options I ended up eating Indian food. Would have preferred something more local, but choices were slim & luckily the food was great. Next morning I took the ferry to Hong Kong Island to take the Peak Tram for some incredible views. After coming back, I explored Nathan Road. Apparently it’s known for all the con mans and designer knock offs. It reminded me a lot of a cleaner NYC. Then I trekked to a vegan cafe for some noodles before heading back to the airport. Thanks for your hospitality HK 💜. •
