The doors of Chefchaouen are usually the most photographed things there but to be honest I only posted it so you guys could see them and I was secretly pouting because I really wanted a picture with a kitten, but they were all out to lunch. 😭💙😻 . That’s also not a sexy hand in hair pose, that’s an “I’m melting and my hair is sticking to my neck” pose 😜 . I’m still very determined to show the true stars - the Kittens of Chefchaouen though...I made a full on documentary of them last year, anyone want to see it?? 🐈😻 . Btw tonight #mylifesatraveltribe is having a Moroccan Ball in Fes! Genius idea by moi that stemmed from that haunted mansion I stayed in last year 😳😂 Check mah Stories in a bit to see it! Or should I go Live?? . #chefchaouen #bluecitymorocco #morocco #chefchaouendoors #behindthescenes #reallife #travelblogger #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #trovatrip #sonyar7iii #selfietography

📍WHERE IN THE WORLD is @mylifesatravelmovie now?! 😍 This real-life #CarmenSandiego looks beyond gorgeous in our 👗Sunflower Fields Golden Yellow Flowy Slip Dress👗 (tag to shop in photo!) exploring Morocco on one of her fun organized group trips!!! 👀 We’re following along closely to see what kind of adventures they get into! 🙌🏻 ・・・ 📸 #Repost @mylifesatravelmovie @alyssaramostravels ・・・ Did you know that blue keeps mosquitos away? That’s not why Chefchaouen is blue though, it’s because it used to signify a Jewish community! Now it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations in Morocco thanks to social media, and as cliche as these pics may be, #MyLifesATravelTRIBE had one hell of a time getting lost in the blue streets - we even all took a painting class! My painting was of this very photo! Check it out on my Stories! .

I’m back in Morocco! But this time I’m not solo! So excited to come back as #MyLifesATravelTRIBE and show an awesome group of adventurers what I found last year! . This year I’m adding in a Moroccan Ball (which I made up but a local I kept in contact with is making it happen), and a glamping trip to the Sahara Desert so stay tuned! 😻 . Big shout out to @trovatrip for turning my itinerary into a plan and allowing me to not have to do all the work 😜🙏💖 . If you’d like any info on how to plan a trip to Morocco or safety issues, I have tons of posts on my blog, or feel free to ask here! 💖 . #chefchaouen #morocco #bluecity #tokenIGshot #gramglam #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #travelblogger
Still can’t believe I saw these statues in real life! Easter Island was on my bucketlist before I even knew I was going to fall in love with travel and explore the World full time! That’s why my 7th bucketlist tattoo is a Moai head!🗿😻🌎 . Fun fact, I had the tattoo artist draw the outline for my Moai tattoo based off of one of the photos I took of them! . More fun facts: I drove a manual car by myself for the first time here because those are the only cars on the island, and I made friends with locals who are some of the last descendants of the Rapa Nui culture (and extremely attractive)! . I also learned every aspect of the history of these statues so I can go on a rant when people say aliens put them there!! Anyone want me to drop some knowledge?! . This wraps up my bucketlist tattoo explanation! Excited to say I’m back in one of my second bucketlist destinations: Morocco! But this time I’m not solo, I have an entire #MyLifesATravelTribe with me! Yay! Be sure to catch the mayhem this week on mi Stories! 😜 . #bucketlist #bucketlisttattoo #easterisland #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #moai #natgeotravel #solotravel #travelblogger
Creeping into the weekend like I was on this family of Nemo’s on the Great Barrier Reef! 🧜🏼‍♀️🐠🤫 . My adrenaline was still pumping from Kilimanjaro when I decided to do this spontaneous bucketlist adventure, which is why it earned its spot after Kili on my bucketlist tattoo! . I literally met someone in Sydney who knew a dive master in Cairns, who hooked me up with a last minute dive, so I flew there the next morning to do it! It also happened to be his 1000th dive so he had to get naked under water for a pic! 😂😂😂 . It was so interesting how curious these fish are, they literally swim up to your mask! Oh and disclaimer, I am not touching coral (you shouldn’t do that!), it is a rock, and I had to put one finger on it because I don’t float and didn’t want to crash into the anemone! 😜 . Is the Great Barrier Reef on your bucketlist?? How about getting scuba certified?? . #greatbarrierreef #findingnemo #animalwhisperer #bucketlist #bucketlisttattoo #bucketlistslayer #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #girlsthatscuba
#Repost and credit galore to @mylifesatravelmovie If there is such a thing as a dream life, this enchanting goddess is living it!!....FOLLOW ALYSSA ... she is without a doubt my abs favorite!💗 ・・・ #MondayMotivation (and another spot on my bucketlist tattoo) :: If there’s a strong will, there’s always a way. Don’t stop trying to do something you really want just because there’s no easy way or answer for how to do it. If you want it that bad, even if there are obstacles, do everything possible to get past them and hit the ground running. 💃🏼 . Just like my career as a full time travel blogger, getting to this particular waterfall (Iguazu Falls) has a ton of hurtles and seemed impossible at first. But both were things I was willing to stop at nothing to get, and I figured them out by taking tons of risks, endless research, and strenuous work. . I have a tattoo of a waterfall with a 7 on my bucketlist tattoo to represent all of the 7 Wonders of Nature I’ve been to, with this one being my favorite! It was also one of the first things on my original travel bucketlist, and took me two tries to get to! . I basically had to accidentally sneak into Iguazu Falls (anyone remember that?) bc I spent all my cash on a visa for Brazil at the border of Argentina (only way I could get it in time for a campaign in Rio), then my debit card got shut off and I couldn’t get more cash out. The ticket-vendor told me to just go in and try the one inside the park, which still didn’t work, so I had to go against my morals and just stay in, and MAN what an epic day that was!!!! .

The 5th of my 7 bucketlist tattoos is of course, Mt. Kilimanjaro!! It’s also the only one that I hand drew! 🙌 . Anyway, hiking Kilimanjaro on a whim for International Women’s Day, summiting first despite everyone taking one look at me and my pink hiking clothes and assuming I’d never make it, then topping it off by wearing a dress (SWIPE LEFT), was just so beyond bucketlist worthy! . If I don’t get in an another accident/natural disaster for at least four months I’m definitely doing Everest Basecamp! Is that on anyone’s bucketlist? Should I make it an epic #mylifesatravelTRIBE group trip?!🤔😜😻 . #kilimanjaro #tanzania #moshi #bucketlist #bucketlisttattoo #girlswhoSUMMIT #bucketlistslayer #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #womenwhoADVENTURE #womenwhoHIKE #indresses
Repost from @mylifesatravelmovie - Learned how to free dive specifically for moments like this...To hang out with turtles while they eat lunch on the ocean floor! 😻🐢🧜🏼‍♀️ . I’ve never made claims that I’m a mermaid, but I’m just going to throw it out there that when I finally got back on the boat the tour guides said, “Yo you’re like a fish.” And the other said, “Nah man, she’s a mermaid!” 😀🧜🏼‍♀️🙋‍♀️ . But to be honest, I was never good at swimming until I started scuba diving! If you’re not certified, Belize is a great place to do it! . #belize #ambergriscaye #youbetterbelizeit #seaturtle #littlemermaid #freedive #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #natgeotravel #travelphotography
The fourth of my 7 bucketlist tattoos is of this elephant with the number 5 on it, to represent seeing all of the Big 5 Animals of Africa! 🐘🦏🐆🐃🦁 . Technically I don’t count this guy since he’s a rescue and easy to go see, but I do count my safaris in Etosha (Namibia), and Masai Mara (Kenya) - where I saw them all in one day. Also, my roadtrip through Africa for the charity event/adventure, @putfootrally allowed me to see TONS of wild elephants especially in Botswana where I got to camp with them! 🐘😻 . If this is on your bucketlist, I have a GREAT itinerary for how to do an affordable Kenya safari, which I planed last minute last February before hiking Kilimanjaro! Check it out on my blog! You can also find more info for Put Foot Rally! . As always, please be responsible when it comes to wild animals and nature! Don’t get close like this unless you’re allowed (aka at rescues NOT in national parks!), and don’t badger them for selfies. 💖 . #bucketlist #big5 #big5animalsofafrica #animalwhisperer #elephants #savetheelephants #tia #thisisafrica #zambia #livingstone #elephantcafe #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #traveblogger #solotravel

Friday Mood: Bold AF. 💃🏼💥It’s how I like to, and insist on living my life. . Since I still have 7 more days until my next round of binge-traveling, I decided to showcase/explain the 7 bucketlist tattoos on my arm that represent my top travel accomplishments so far! . I started earlier this week with the first one which is not only Antarctica, but reaching all 7 continents, and the symbol I have for it is the globe with the number 7! 🌎 . This is out of order but the “second” one is an outline of the Taj Mahal with the number 7, which represents reaching all of the New 7 World Wonders! . I have photos at all of them without people because I went at the crack of dawn or off season, but this one is by far my favorite! . What’s top on your travel bucketlist?? . #bucketlistslayer #bucketlist #tajmahal #7worldwonders #travelinspo #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #india #agra
And then there was this epic moment when I saw penguins in Antarctica for the first time (wearing a penguin hat), before realizing that they are EVERYWHERE and also the most amusing animals I have ever met. 🐧😻 . As for my super cute outfit...mandatory for the paddleboarding session I had just done prior to this pic. Wasn’t even mad about it tho since I also did the Polar Plunge in a swimsuit, and knew damn well how cold the water is (I mean duh, it’s Antarctica). . Definitely wore the penguin hat to try and blend in so they’d come up to me...otherwise you have to stay 3 feet away 😭 Also epic that my entire squad wore them the whole trip! 😂 . Who here loves penguins?! Going to try to find my epic penguin video to put on IGTV! 🐧🇦🇶🎥 . Unrelated to Antarctica but relevant in time — you can still sign up for my Dia de los Muertos Mexico trip with @tripvalet and hold your spot with $200 (deposit) before the 10th! DM me for details! . #antarctica #7thcontinent #bucketlist #bucketlistslayer #mylifesatravelmovie #quarkexpeditions #alyssaramostravels #penguins #penguinsofinstagram #paddleboarding #natgeotravel
Yes, I wore a dress in Antarctica, and yes, I’m fully aware that my idea of an epic photo will likely never make it in something like Nat Geo. But I’d rather be the one to shake up the typical search results and be the first one to do something different! (Story of my life) 😜💃🏼🐧 . Some other reasons why I did it: I often get judged for what I wear on my adventures as if it’s a requirement to look rugged or boyish, or as if I’m not capable of doing something because I prefer feminine clothing. Well. I’m pretty sure I’m standing on a volcanic island and got myself to Antarctica, so also pretty sure I’ll wear whatever the hell I want there. Did the same on Kilimanjaro 💁‍♀️. . I also see my photos as an artistic (slightly obnoxious) representation of the world from my eyes. And I put A LOT of effort into getting them (you try carrying long dresses and camera equipment around everywhere!) So I have so much love for you who enjoy my mini masterpieces. I also hope you too will always do and wear whatever YOU want. . I should probably also touch in the fact that I’m sleeveless...in Antarctica. It was technically summer there, and this is a volcanic island, but even I was shocked at how warm it was! If you don’t believe in the rising temps, look at this pic a little longer! . You can also see on my Antarctica video on my blog (mylifesamovie.com) that I didn’t just take off my jacket for this photo...I was sweating from hiking the volcano and blazing sun! 🙀🔥❄️ . Anyway! Fun/exciting updates on my Stories today including me hiring one of you for my blog! Also details for my speaking session at TBEX, an NYC meetup, and more about my last group trip of the year in Mexico with @tripvalet ! . #antarctica #deceptionisland #7thcontinent #bucketlistslayer #bucketlist #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #travelinspo #beautifuldestinations #natgeotravel
Since summer is technically “over” but not really bc I’m in LA, I decided to do a 180 switch up this week while I’m binge-working to reminisce about Antarctica last December, which is the number one adventure you guys said has been your favorite of mine! 🇦🇶 ❄️🐧 . Just in case you weren’t here the before December to hear my non-stop obsession with getting to Antarctica (and my 7th continent before I turned 30), it was the number one destination on my bucketlist, and hands down the most exciting, memorable experience I’ve ever had! . It took me 4 years to convince an expedition company that it was a good idea to allow a blogger/influencer on the journey - most said millennials aren’t their target audience but I was determined to prove that wrong, and I somehow ended up convincing 5 other adventurous souls to come with me! . I guess now is also a good time to announce that I have my Antarctica video up on YouTube and alllllll the posts on my blog! Check mi Stories for links! . Who else has Antarctica on their bucketlist?! (And wants to make a point to say it so expedition companies start offering more affordable options??😜) . #bucketlist #bucketlistslayer #antarctica #7thcontinent #trailblazer #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #travelinspo
Yewww! Just cruisin’ on into LA in time for Labor Day Weekend like I just drove off a movie set (namely Black Panther) thanks to @lexususa ! 🏎 😎 . I got to do a #lexustestdrive with this #lexuslc500 for a whole week...a lot different than riding motorbikes in Bali for a month...just wish I could drive it like in the movie (I keep it in eco-mode since my track record with vehicles isn’t the best) since it has 471 horsepower! . Yes, I’m a girl who likes to drive fast cars (I’ve always had a Mustang), yes I get annoyed when people assume “it’s probably her bf’s car” 🙄😂😜 . Anyway! Hope you’re all having a great day off work! Let me know what you’re doing below!! . Fun fact: Labor Day began when manufacturing workers created a strike against obscenely long work weeks — initially they were striking for less than 70 hours, and 6 day work weeks (about what I work except 7 days a week). Also, one of the main reasons why the gov was happy to “lessen” work weeks and add a holiday is bc it was a cheap way to turn working class into consumers (aka think of all the money you spend on weekends and holidays) 🙊 . #labordayweekend #LA #lapalmtrees #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #girlswholikefastcars #losangeles
Finally made a book out of all of my favorite adventure photos for my make-shift living rooms!!! 😻📘🤓 . It was super easy to design and create using @mixbook and has inspired me to get more printed and published! Check out the easy steps for how to do it on my blog MyLifesAMovie.com! . If I get more printed, who wants one?? Or more importantly, which adventures would you make your own photo book of?? . #mixbook #sponsored #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #travelbooks #travelphotos #travelinspo #sonya7iii #sonyphasclub #wearetravelgirls #girlslovetravel
Not going to lie, I thought for sure that after all my accidents, trauma, and new anxiety, I was going to be scared or un-motivated to do the things I love.... . But WRONG!!! If anything, continuing to do things like chase waterfalls has made it better! Even just looking at old photos of them helps! . Which brings me to my new blog post, “10 Tips for Handling Anxiety Abroad”! Thanks to you guys not only for helping me decide what to write first, but all of your many tips which are featured at the end of the post and will be on my Stories! 🙏 . Please let me know if you have any preference for upcoming blog posts or...podcasts!!!

One sure way to avoid people in your pics : Swing over them. 😜🌿🐒 . Also helps to get places as early as possible, which for me isn’t always ideal since I’m the opposite of a morning person and I prefer bright blue skies for photos over white, but I won’t deny that these famous rice fields get PACKED unless you go early or are good at night photography! . I’ll be showing a few more hotels near this area you can swoop on @tripvalet to stay close by (aka not have to wake up as early), plus more tips on Bali, and a cheeky peak at my epic sports car for the weekend on my Stories! 😜 . What are your top tips for avoiding crowds when you travel? . Disclaimer(s): Yes I have feet, yes there is a rope somewhat attached to me, yes this is high up, and yes I would recommend adult supervision. 😁 . 📷 @thewanderlust_rose (she has rad content check her out!) . #tegalalang #tegalalangriceterrace #tegalalangswing #baliswing #ubud #indonesia #bali #wanderlustwednesday #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #adventurers #sonya7iii #sonyalphasclub #wearetravelgirls #girlslovetravel #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #balicili #baibible
Still can’t believe I found a villa nestled in rice paddie fields, eye level with the jungle 🌿😻 . The best part is that renting this (7 bedroom plus breakfast) luxury villa in Bali for a week costs about 1/4 of a U.S. wedding 🙊 just to put things in perspective! . Where would your ideal villa be? . You can find some great discounts for them on @tripvalet , or even just use it to fuel your wanderlust! Just type in “Ubud” as the destination and prepare to start drooling! . 📷 @asherpawanders #villalife #villalifestyle #bali #ubud #tagalalang #indonesia #balibloggerbootcamp18 #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #tripvalet #brandambassador #infinitypool #wearetravelgirls #balidaily #balicill #balibible
#MondayMotivation :: What if all the struggles and obstacles life throws at us are really lessons from the universe to make us more awesome? 🤔🤯 . My past month from hell definitely taught me to care more about myself and also the safety and well being of others! And on a lighter note, the crowd on the other side of these famous gates in Bali taught me to go around to the other side...where I prefer the no people and blue skies anyway! 😜 . A big thank you to everyone who DMed me tips for flying with anxiety! I ended up doing what I normally do which is drink wine and watch animated or Christmas movies and was just fine, but you guys had some really good tips so please comment them below to help others...my full blog post will be coming soon! . Another tip, if you get to these gates at 6am you’re less likely to find a crowd...to do that I’d recommend using @tripvalet to find a discounted hotel nearby! Check the blog post on my bio (and a sneaky peak at my new website) for details on where this is! 💖 . 📷 assists by @thewanderlust_rose & @daniellebutler 😽😽😽 #motivation #mondaymood #handaragate #bali #ubud #indonesia #balibloggerbootcamp18 #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub #antianxiety #tripvalet #brandambassador #girlslovetravel #wearetravelgirls #sheisnotlost
Did you even go to Bali if you didn’t take a token photo in a nest?! 🐣😂 . The funny thing is that a year ago I found one of the first “selfie parks” way up in Northern Bali and wrote a blog post about “10 Photo Spots in Bali You’ve Never Heard of”....now there’s nests and swings EVERYWHERE....and I’m not complaining! But I actually went up here to make a drone video, swipe left for the results and check my side-gram @alyssaramostravels for the behind the scenes struggles 😂 . For those of you wondering about that epic villa we stayed at; it’s only available for our #balibloggerbootcamp18 😜(get on the waiting list now for next year!), but if you want to snag a room at some equally impressive places, check out the epic discounts on @tripvalet !

Quite possibly my favorite Behind the Scenes shots from a photo on my main account @mylifesatravelmovie ! 🎥🙊😂 . Most people will likely just see the typical pretty nest photo (and will prefer to see that over my struggles trying to fly a drone out of said nest), but I really went up in it to make a cool drone video...which was only partially successful. Swipe to see the results... . The views were great but, and I felt super cool flying my dronie from a nest in a tree, but when it came to landing it, no dice. I actually freaked out and begged @glographics to come help me land it since she’s way better at flying (and WAY less scared of crashing it) 🙈😂 . Never a dull moment at #balibloggerbootcamp18 . Especially with earthquakes every other day. 😭 . Check out my favorite drone shot on my main account! Also, if you’re interested in next years Bootcamp, we’re starting the waiting list right meow, so lmk if you’re interested! . #behindthescenes #girlswhodrone #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #bali #indonesia #ubud #tagalalang #girlslovetravel #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #sheisnotlost
My ideal day in a nutshell: jungle swings and waterfalls. 🙌🐒💦🌿 . This is actually my favorite day of hosting our bootcamp, because I get to show everyone all of my favorite, typical adventure activities in one day! I especially love when I hear “So this is what your life is like!” 😂💖 . Can’t believe one month in Bali is almost over!

Behind the Scenes :: When we look like we’re “just relaxing at sunset with the perfect infinity pool over the jungle in Bali”....we really chillin with our tripods up and laptops open! . Every shot I take on @mylifesatravelmovie is timed and framed on purpose, and every spare minute I get is spent doing the boring backend computer work of being a blogger! ....worth it for these views and experiences tho right?! . I’m here at this epic villa for mine and @glographics third round of our #BaliBloggerBootcamp18 , where we teach groups of aspiring bloggers what it takes to be successful, including how I went from making $0 to over 6 figures just from my blog and social media (and let’s be serious, a shit ton of hard work). . If you wanna see what’s going on at this Bootcamp, check my Stories on my main account! And yes, I have felt allllllll the earthquakes here in the last month. 😭😭😭 . #behindthescenes #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #selfietography #fulltimetravel #digitalnomad #ubud #bali #indonesia #girlslovetravel #wearetravelgirls #sheisnotlost #entrepreneur
#MondayMotivation :: Once you realize how powerful Queen Earth is, and how small you physically are, you’ll have a better perspective and understanding of just how valuable and amazing life is, and what your role in it plays.🌏 👑 💎 : I’ve felt and seen the Earth shake about ten times since I’ve been in Bali this month, including three last night (plus one during the day) while staying in this tree house, due to the non-stop earthquakes on and around Lombok. . During the first ones two weeks ago, I thought I was automatically going to die, then when I realized people did, I wanted to help. Helping made me realize how fortunate I am, and feeling even more earthquakes later made me realize how true the quote “we’re all on borrowed time” is. . So my message to you this Monday is to really think about the time you have here on the beautiful Earth, and what you’re doing with it. Are you harnessing your inner power and awesomeness, or are you living in fear/doubt/misdirection? . . A big shout out goes to all of @glographics and I’s #balibloggerbootcamp18 students who have had such incredible and motivated attitudes towards not only learning how to further their dreams, but embracing Queen Nature with a grain of salt (or glass of wine) and carrying on! 🙌🙏💖 . Please feel free to add your own words of motivation and inspiration! . #gempalombok (if you want to see what the earthquakes are doing to Lombok) #ubud #ricepaddies #mondayblues #turnoffvibratemode #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #indonesia #motivation #strongwomen #treehouse #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub
A lot of people ask either how I got started as a travel blogger or if I’m ever going to stop doing it. . The answer to both involves figuring out that I can work from anywhere (preferably by pools in jungles) by having the freedom to run an internet-based business, and never needing to be confined to one spot! . To do that of course, I need good WiFi, which I get with @myskyroam that I’ve been using for about two years now! The newest model, the Solis, has 4G speed and Tesla batteries that last all day! It can also power multiple devices either for yourself or that you can share with others! 💻📱🤓 . Click the link in my bio or watch my Stories for every bit of info on Skyroams, plus a sneak peak at our gorgeous villa in Ubud! . So to answer the initial questions: I figured out how to run an internet-based business and combined that with my love of travel, and no I don’t plan on stopping...I built my dream career and I get to travel the world doing it! 😻 . Speaking of which, who can name the bucketlist stickers I have on my laptop?? 😜 . #entrepreneur #digitalnomad #boss #travelblogger #myskyroam #skyroamsolis #sponsored #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #ubud #ubudvilla #balivilla #bali #indonesia
Everyone said I was in the perfect place to restore and find wellness here in Bali, and I couldn't agree more! One of the main reasons I come back here every year is because of the healthy lifestyle and positive vibes it gives off! Pair that with my go-to healthy food treat, @wolosnacks , and I've got an extra boost of well-being! . I actually wish I hadn’t eaten so many of my stash because these would have been perfect to send over with the supplies to Lombok. (We still covered the healthy food supply base though!) . What's your go-to method of restoring your health and well-being? Give me all the tips! . (Side note: no flowers or grass were harmed in the making of my flower crown. The flowers fall from the trees daily, and the long grass was already cut by the gardeners. 👍) #wolosnacks #wanderbar #brandambassador #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #bali #indonesia "
Some solid perspective if you zoom in on the little dot in the pool (me) versus how vast the jungle is below me! 🌿🌎🦖🙀 . This is one of many unique places in Bali that is still secluded in nature and not in a more trafficy/touristy area 😻 . If you’d like to know where those types of areas are on Bali, I’d recommend Canggu and some parts of Ubud! And also @tripvalet for getting discounts on nice places in those areas! . Where you go in Bali will depend on what you like though, so tell me, do you prefer oceans, or jungles? 😜💖 . 📸🚁: @peachy_prod . . . PS check out the progress of our Lombok fundraiser and delivery mission on my Stories, and thank you all once again for helping!!! . #bali #drone #balivilla #balibloggerbootcamp18 #perspective #tripvalet #brandambassador #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #djimavicpro #dronestagram #dronephotography
There’s many reasons that I keep coming back to Bali every year...and the accommodations plus amazing hospitality are some of them! But TBH, the vibes and energy are at the top of that list! 😻🙏 . Many people say that staying at a Bali villa is top of their bucketlist, and if it’s on yours, definitely check out @tripvalet for discounts on them! . Also, yes I felt badass AF wearing this mega-necklace, yes it may or may not have been a decoration in the villa, and YESSSS we completed our Lombok supply loading today!!! See it on my Stories and again THANK YOU so incredibly much!!!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏💖 . #bali #balilife #indonesia #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #tripvalet #balivilla #balicilli #thebalibible #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub
Which do you think is the better “Token IG shot”; the perfectly framed with excellent timing of the dress shot, or (scroll left) me trying to prove that my swan “floatie” game just dominated everyone else’s? 🦖🦖🦖 .

Sunday Funday! They really don’t get any better than spending an entire day in Ubud. 😻🌿💦 . This leetle waterfall is actually on the way to the massive Tegenugan Waterfall which is always packed, UNLESS you book the hotel above it. Get it for a discount on @tripvalet if you want epic waterfall views all day! .

Friday Vibes :: Trying to balance work, play, and helping others at the same time. The monkey was not entertained by it but was nice enough to hang out anyway 😻🐒 . I’m really proud to say in just this week, we not only hosted our planned, intensive blogger bootcamp despite earthquake scares, but also successfully jumped into action with your help to raise well over $5k in one day to get the people on Lombok emergency supplies. THANK YOU again, and that won’t be the last of that you’ll hear from me as we are plotting our delivery mission for early next week! . I’m not going to lie, it’s been one of the most crazy, hectic, terrifying couple of weeks for me, but the reason I was able to bounce right back so quickly is because of all of your support, the love from people around me, and my determination to keep doing what I love...which heavily involves helping people, creating global impacts....and maybe also getting to be in my realest moments as a self-proclaimed animal whisperer (just saying, this monkey is holding my hand and I don’t even have any food on me.) . I’ve learned a lot about what makes me most happy in life, and would love to hear what gives you the same feeling! 💖 . 📸Candid shot of me and all of my cameras plus new baby by @frostxsun ! . #fridayvibes #goodvibesonly #balibloggerbootcamp18 #monkeyforest #ubud #bali #lombok #indonesia #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #alyssaVentura #animalwhisperer #candid #behindthescenes
#Repost @mylifesatravelmovie with @get_repost ・・・ One of the most iconic photo spots in Bali made famous by social media, so much so that they’ve now set up a kiosk in front of it and charge to take photos there, proving the power of the internet and influence. 💥 .

Behind the Scenes of @MyLifesATravelMovie :: I’m in the middle of co-hosting our second Bali Blogger Bootcamp and teaching our bootcampers some tricks for getting those “banger shots”. 📸💥 . Constant outfit changes, considering colors and designs with scenes, and the appropriate level of flowiness, all go into creating the perfect shot...so after shooting at our first location, we stopped and bought $7 dresses, and literally changed into them in the shop before heading to our next location. 🙌 . My bootcampers are such troopers; they’ve maintained incredible spirits and motivation despite experiencing the earthquake the first night they got here 😭 They’ve also been supportive in sharing the fundraiser I created yesterday to raise money for us to go buy supplies locally to send over to Lombok next door where people are without homes, electricity, water, and food. . We’re already almost halfway to our goal of raising $5k, so if you want to help, please go to bit.ly/LombokEarthquakes or check out my Stories on @mylifesatravelmovie for more info! 🙏💖 . #behindthescenes #travelblogger #balibloggerbootcamp18 #lombokearthquake #ubud #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #wearetravelgirls #girlslovetravel
Magic hour in a magical place 🔮 There’s a reason why so many people say they love Bali, and why so many of us nomads dabble in the idea (or actually do) set up a base here...because the vibes are purely magical. . Although we’ve been rocked by the earthquakes, we’ve also been humbled by the first hand experience of how powerful the Earth is. We’re doing our best to enjoy our precious time here, while continuing to think about those way less fortunate on our neighboring islands...in fact, I’ll be setting up a fundraiser with some other bloggers today to raise money so we can physically go buy food, water, and supplies and bring them to boats here in Bali that can send them over to Lombok, since thousands of people there are without aid still. . Please keep an eye out for my next post with more details on that, and let me know if you’re interested in helping! 🙏💖 . #tagallalang #ricepaddiesubud #ubud #indonesia #bali #balibloggerbootcamp18 #lombokearthquake #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelogger #sonyalpha #magichour #sonyalphasclub #sonyar7iii #selfietography #wearetravelgirls #girlslovetravel #dametraveler
Crazy to think this was the exact spot we all ran outside to last night as we felt and watched the earthquake in Lombok rock us miles away in Bali. . Somehow it looked and felt so peaceful and grounded to lay here, with all the flowers that fell from the tree...well, until I realized they probably all fell from the earth shaking. . While I’m once again so grateful we are all Ok in my group, and that my brain was able to snap into flight mode to help get everyone outside as the massive 200+ lb light fixtures swayed above us (see my Stories), my heart deeply goes out to those on Lombok next door who have fallen forever due to these last two earthquakes, to their families, to everyone whose homes have been destroyed and lives shaken. I know we were all literally shaking so I can’t even imagine how those who are being evacuated must feel. . Also thank you for everyone who checked in on me and our bootcampers, your thoughts and care mean the world to me! Please also send well wishes again for everyone affected on Lombok and the Gili Islands! 🙏🌸🌿 . 📸 @masovaida on mi #sonyar7iii #grateful #lombokearthquake #bali #indonesia #balibloggerbootcamp18 #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #behindthescenes #travel #travelblogger
Bali has been such a perfect place to rest, play, immerse in culture...and experience two earthquakes in one week. 😳🙈😭🙏💖 . Not joking, just when I was all lightened up from the wonderful locals who taught me about their traditional clothing, yoga, and dancing to alleviate anxiety...and convinced I was going to have better luck...a second earthquake happened in the same spot in Lombok, but this time I was awake and could fully see the effects (swaying) at our place in Bali! . We all meditated, had huge glasses of wine after, and are Ok here in the middle of the island, but please send us and everyone in this entire area good universe vibes so there’s no more disasters! It’s so scary!!! 😫 . #bts #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #bali #baliearthquake #culture #goodvibesonly #balicili #balibible
So grateful and happy to feel like I’m almost back to my “normal” self! For anyone who doesn’t know me, I take photos, work, and go on adventures every day, without a day off, and this week I didn’t do any of that until today due to an accident and anxiety attack that put me in the hospital. 😭 . I know people give social media a bad name sometimes, but honestly, this has been my best form of therapy! I read and took all of your comments seriously on my last post, and I feel like it was your support and suggestions that got me through the weird sudden trauma-anxiety I experienced earlier this week following my bus accident. (Also randomly running into a friend from college who helped distract me and also take this pic helped too!) . This life of traveling full time, also as your career, and always public, has its perks for sure, but I’ll never hide the behind the scenes aspect of it which involves accidents and heath-well being! . I’m grateful now more than ever to acknowledge that I’ve made myself such a strong, motivated, hard-working, open-minded, and empathetic person through travel, and grateful for the opportunity to show others how much it can change your life as well! . So here’s to wishing everyone a warm, colorful, energized weekend, I love you all! 💖 . #friyay #reflecting #grateful #bali #baliindonesia #healthylifestyle #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #peterpan #seminyak #shotonaniphone #sunset #balibible #balicili #earthpix #girlslovetravel #wearetravelgirls #tlpicks
Well the good news is I made it back to my beloved second home in Bali! Thank you everyone who has been checking in on me here... 😻🌿🌸🌊 . ...the (continuing) bad news is there was a 6.8 earthquake on the island next to me that killed 14 people, and which we felt all the way in Bali the night I arrived, and then last night I had suddenly had what turned out to be an anxiety attack from PTSD (I thought I was having a heart attack and dying), which was so bad that I had to wake @glographics up in the middle of the night to help me get to the hospital here, where they injected me with a tranquilizer and told me not to do anything for a few days and try to have “positive thoughts”. . So, I’m going to reluctantly attempt not adventuring and working my ass off for a couple days...maybe will try some yoga and definitely massages, but for the most part will be “resting”, so please send me some positive thoughts to read that will keep my mind from wandering back to the bus accident, and feeling like I couldn’t breath last night. 😔💖🙏 . Also, again big thanks to @glographics for helping me last night as I literally was struggling to breath and stay conscious (still feel bad about how shocking that may have been to see), and also Hospital Bali for getting me seen right away and convincing me I wasn’t going to die. I know it may seem scary going to a hospital abroad, but everyone there was amazing (yes they speak English), and I was only charged $85 for an emergency visit, tranquilizer IV, plus meds to take home! . More on my Stories but don’t watch if you have a weak tummy. Also, always take the way you feel seriously! From anxiety and PTSD, to depression and ...other bad things. Sorry, took my meds already... . Love you all, and so happy to be here!! 💖💖💖 . #grateful #bali #balibloggerbootcamp #chasingwaterfalls #cambodiabus #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #positiveenergy #northbali #girlslovetravel #wearetravelgirls
Just a dot in history. Can you see me? Because my goal is to leave a mark (figuratively). Thanks Angkor Wat for giving me a moment without others to appreciate your glory 🙏 . I chose orange to wear in this photo because I was inspired by what the Buddhist monks wear in SE Asia; an ancient tradition that’s both because of previous traditions and the dye used in their robes. . The irony is that the only thing hard about getting these photos was that my friend and I both had concussions from the bus accident and were on a time limit for flights — normally it’s really packed, but we were determined to at least see it after a week of waiting plus unexpected turmoil. . For now I’ll just channel my inner Lara Croft and continue my badassery in Bali. Stay tuned. . #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #angkorwat #cambodia #laracroft #tombraider #siemreap #grateful
I’ve been trying to write a caption for a while now about this beautiful golden pagoda I found in Battambang...but I can’t write my typical inspiring views because the truth is that I got into a very bad accident yesterday when my bus did a 360 sideways roll off the road here in Cambodia. . I am beyond grateful that all of us are alive, but there were definitely people with bad injuries (spinal, collar bone, and head) and a lot of trauma. Mine was only a slam to the head, but way too close to my temple for comfort, especially knowing one hit to the temple can cause brain hemorrhage. I will show one photo on my Stories. . Please send good energy and vibes to the people who are still in the hospital, as well as the people in Laos next door who are lost, injured, or have died because of the dam breaking. 🙏💖😭 . . . . . #grateful #ninelives down to #fourlives #cambodia #battambang #siemreap #goodvibesonly #sonyalpha #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #laos
#MondayMotivation :: There’s always a bigger picture. Are you the type who takes the time to try and see it? 🤔👀 . Instead of just one drone shot, I included the clip because I liked how many different things were going on, and how the end aerial view shows we’re at the top of the mountain. It’s my visual representation of literally seeing a bigger picture. (Even tho I look super awkward trying to film myself while also flying the drone myself from the edge of an infinity pool 🤦‍♀️) . You can probably guess that my post yesterday inspired this motivation today, because I really want to start making everyone more aware of what really is going on in these places I travel to, aside from just the beautiful scenery. It’s not going to be easy, but definitely worth it! . Only a couple days left now until I finally reach Angkor Wat, then on to my second home in Bali where I’ll have some down time to catch up on posts and projects that I keep talking about 🙏🙏🙏🙏 . Also only a few days left to take advantage of those July deals with @tripvalet I mentioned earlier this month; like the $417 special for a 7 night trip, and the drawing for a spot on my Mexico trip! . Would love if you’d give me your input and motivation for what types of things you’d like to learn more about in regards to the realness of traveling! . #mondays #motivationalquotes #motivation #inspiration #bethechange #cambodia #kampot #djimavicpro #girlswhodrone #womenwhodrone #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #worldpeace #tripvalet #brandambassador #dronestagram #seasia
Serious question: have you ever thought about where peppercorns come from?? I honestly had never thought about it, but had a great time finding out today in Kampot, Cambodia! 🙀🌿🤯 . Turns out they grow on vines like little mini grapes, and you can eat them raw which is actually really good! Not as spicy as expected either! . This pepper farm was just one of the many impromptu stops we took on my Cambodia @busabout.official tour today, the rest included yet another watery cave, an infinity pool, and an English class session with some local kids! . All will be on my Stories as soon as I walk off the huge bowl of Amok I just ate, and you can also swipe left to see a close up of the peppercorns! . #cambodia #kampot #kampotpepper #kampotpepperplantation #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #travelpresets #sonyalpha #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub #natgeotravel
Can you believe this is Cambodia?! I guess I’m guilty of listening to stereotypes about Phnom Penh, and also assuming everything would look like Angkor Wat, but I’m SO GLAD I took it upon myself to explore on an open mindset! (I should clarify that people mostly said it was “dirty, unsafe, and poor” and my goal was to shed a better light)🙋‍♀️🌏😻 . I’m only on day three in my 86th country, but so far I’m so intrigued by the western touches, like rooftop infinity pools and wine gardens that I’ve seen. Yes, there is a lot of poverty, and I’m not trying to mask or deny it, but please consider how tourism in areas like this can help the locals. Speaking of which, everyone is so nice and seemingly happy despite a dark recent past which I hope you’ll take a moment to learn about on my Stories later — in short, Cambodia is one of the few countries who committed genocide on its own people. . But, back to trying to shed a positive light...What I love about SE Asia in general is how affordable places like this are to stay at! This is the @sunandmoonurbanhotel that I found on @tripvalet for only $66! Or you can do what I did and stay at a $16 two blocks away and then buy a drink here in exchange for the pool. You can find both of these hotels on the website and if you sign up you still can get entered to get a free spot on my Mexico trip in November for Dia de Los Muertos!

The sheer amount of new buildings being built in China is insane. Miles upon miles of what seems like apartments being built.
#MondayMotivation :: Be grateful for everything you have, even the tiniest things like a place to rest your head. (Or a phone to even read this on)🙏🧝🏼‍♀️🗿💖 . My emojis were irrelevant but my message is not...I’ve been talking a lot lately about being grateful, not just for what I’ve been able to do and build, but for being alive in general considering some risky things I’ve done. I keep seeing more and more accidents where people don’t make it out as lucky as I did and it prompts me to keep saying: be careful, be happy, and please talk about things that cause you pain! . As always, I am all ears!

Some Weekend Wanderlust : Ultimate pool party goals! Only thing missing is an elephant. 😻💙🤤 . I used to dream of one day having a house with a pool...now I dream of finding natural pools like these all over the world, and let’s be serious...no house pool will ever compare! . This was one of my favorite stops on my @busabout.official tour of Laos, enhanced by the awesome company of my group and guide, plus some new friends I met there who recognized me from here! (#humblebrag ) . As pretty as this pic is, I still have to give a disclaimer that where I am sitting is only about 3ft high from the pool below, and that you are allowed to swim here/climb up and down the pools, BUT! They are still wet limestone and a bit slippery, so please be careful if/when you go! 💙 . Also, if you’re wondering how I took this pic, my tripod is on the bridge, my phone/remote is in my left hand, and I edited it with an app which I have a tutorial for under Tips and Tricks on my blog! 😜 .

Friday vibes 😚💙 I’ve only seen blue cascading pools like these in a handful of places on Earth (that I’ve been to so far), and these, Kuang Si Falls in Laos, are definitely one of my favorites! . This was actually one of the top places I was looking forward to stopping at on my @busabout.official tour, and I even carried the swimsuit with me in my purse just waiting to wear it here 😂👙🙋‍♀️ . Have you ever seen cascading pools like this?? . Also, thanks for all of your questions on my Stories!

Pretty sure that in a past life, I lived in a jungle. Or an island. Or maybe that’s just me currently wishing I lived in a jungle that was on an island? Where do you think you once lived??🤔🌎🐒🌿🏝😻 . Anyway, this beautiful Khun Korn waterfall is in the jungle of Chiang Rai, and requires a moderate yet majestic 1 mile hike to get to. Full disclosure, I am sitting on a rock and the ground is right below my toe, and my very experienced @busabout.official guide is the one taking the picture! . ▪️▪️▪️▪️ PS! Don’t forget to take advantage of the July specials for new @tripvalet VIP members, because one of them will get you a 7 night stay in places like Thailand for only $417!! .

#MondayMotivation :: Take control of making your dreams come true. You’re the only one who can and cannot make them happen! 🤔💪🏽🧞‍♀️ . This gorgeous, incredibly intricate White Temple was the first stop on my @busabout.official Northern Thailand and Laos tour, and it immediately blew my mind!! The artist who created it completely restored an abandoned temple to this masterpiece, and he had many more mind-blowing artworks on site...plus he was THERE!! 🤯😻Talk about making your dreams a reality! Just like I do with seeing the world and experiencing different cultures! . I know a lot of people wonder how I got started with traveling and making money to do so (the short answer is a ton of freelance work from my laptop), so if you want some more detailed answers, check out my latest blog post, or swipe up on my Stories! 🤓💻💖 . #chiangrai #chiangraithailand #whitetemple #dreamsdontworkunlessyoudo #mondaymood #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #selfietography #sonyalphasclub #sonya7iii
My ideal Sunday Funday 😻 Clearly this rescue elephant appreciated my mad mud mask making skills on her, because she kept randomly hugging me and humming! ...and also reciprocating the mud mask on my entire body. 🧖🏽‍♀️🐘💁‍♀️ . Now for some fun facts! Did you know that elephants can feel your energy through their trunks, and will respond to you accordingly? Did you know that they put dirt and mud on themselves to stay cool (literally)? Did you know there’s no way their bodies were meant to be ridden by humans (cough don’t ride them)? . More fun facts: This photo pretty much embodies everything about me; loving animals and nature, not caring about getting dirty, and living my best life while trying to help others do the same. That smile on my face is my eternal gratefulness for it all. . What are some fun facts about you or things in general? (and don’t say Coca Cola takes credit for Santa claus’ red outfit bc that’s currently debatable!) . Oh! And just heard the good news about some more awesome rescues! The boys trapped in the cave not far from where I was in Chiang Rai are currently being rescued!!!!! 🙏🙏🙏 . #chiangmai #thailand #maerimelephantsanctuary #animalwhisperer #elephantwhisperer #savetheelephants #noride #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #jane #sonyalpha #tlpicks #animalplanet #natgeotravel #chiangrai

Behind the Scenes : When you hike a mile to a waterfall and your GoPro breaks.... 🤦🏼‍♀️ Luckily though I’m on a tour, so when all else fails, tour guides make great photography assistants! . I’ve also offered to take pics of anyone in my group who helps me take mine...now that’s what I call solo travel friendship goals! 😜 . #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #behindthescenes #thailand #chiangmai #chiangrai #chasingwaterfalls
Not much can make me happier than seeing animals rescued and thriving, not allowed to be ridden or caged...and getting to have a mud party with them! (Can you tell which one was rescued from a circus??) 😻🐘🙋‍♀️🎉 . I was so impressed with this sanctuary’s story (@maerimelephantsanctuary ) and program, all of which you can see on my Stories, including my plans for a fundraiser to rescue another ride-elephant! Let me know if you want to help! . I found out about this sanctuary from a girl who works at the awesome hotel I found last minute on @tripvalet (for $25, boom!), after asking her about all the different ones that were recommended (thank you!) She said it was new and smaller and that they were currently working on rescuing another elephant, so I chose it to see how that process works. . Makes total sense; just buy the elephant from the bad people, then use tourism to fund keeping the rescued ones healthy! Let’s do it!!! 😀😀😀 . PS have I ever mentioned that I am an animal whisperer and that I actually have a biology degree bc I was going to be a veterinarian? So today was extra awesome for me to get to play with elephants and puppies all day omgidie!!!! #funfactsbyalyssa . #animalwhisperer #maerimelephantsanctuary #savetheelephants #noride #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #tripvalet #brandambassador #travelblogger #sonyalphasclub #chiangmai #thailand
Happy 4th of July to all my fellow U.S. passport holders...even though I traded fireworks for a flight to Asia, am abroad 300+ days a year, consider myself a Global Citizen, and always get sick when I go back to the States, I still always acknowledge how much of a privilege it is to be a U.S. citizen! 😜💥🇺🇸 . How are you spending this holiday (or if you’re from another country, how do you celebrate your Independence Day?) . It’s 11:30pm for me here in Chiang Mai (photo is Ubud), and I have one full day here tomorrow, so please lmk if you have any top recommendations, or if you think I should see elephant sanctuaries, jungle, or temples! . Speaking of which, I’m actually really proud to see that every brochure for elephants has “No Riding” on it...it makes me feel that us using our voices on here for positive changes really works! 💪🏽🐘💖 . See 20 more of my animal selfies on my Highlights 😻....ok I think the 18 hour flight made me deleterious, I’ll stop talking now. . #chiangmai #thailand #4ofjuly #independenceday #ubud #bali #globalcitizen #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel
