The most reliable way to predict your future is to create it.💗
Mid afternoon ☕️ breaks and monochromatic floor situations ⚪️⚫️
One of the most unique things about the Philippines is its boats! They are traditional boats with outriggers called bangka. 🛶
I had a both terrifying and exciting experience on my way back to Dumaguete from Apo Island on a bangka. Some nets caught onto the propeller of the boat and our bangka broke down just 5 minutes in! 😱 We had to get help from another bigger bangka by throwing our rope to the other side and getting them to tow us. Our rope broke after 10 minutes though and they had to throw their rope over to us. Thankfully, we made it back safely! 😅
The simple things in life are often the most beautiful! 💙
While visiting the Surin Islands, we visited a small Moken community, or "sea gypsies." Traditionally, they spend much of their lives on their hand-built wooden boats, called "kabang" and survive mainly through the gathering of shellfish and other marine life from the reefs and mudflats. Only during monsoon season will they stay in temporary stilt houses on protected beaches. They do not have a written language and their history is passed down verbally through folklore from generation to generation. They have a great understanding and respect for their environment and natural resources. Their semi-nomadic numbers have diminished in recent years due to political regulations, companies drilling for oil off-shore, governments seizing their lands for tourism development and industrial fishing. This South Surin Island is most likely the last settlement of Moken living in semi-traditional ways. When you visit the village you can buy their handicrafts to help the community.
One of my favorite things about traveling to new countries is learning about their history, different cultures, languages and lifestyle. I could get used to this beautiful view of the Andaman Sea from my front door. How about you? 😃

, it really is simple. If you want it to be.
My dad called me the other night and goes “Hey are you not traveling anywhere this month?? You haven’t gone anywhere the last two months, are you ok?” 😂 Hahah and I definitely have to admit I’ve been a little stir crazy not being able to plan a long weekend getaway because I’ve been waiting on finalizing some last details on my BIG NEWS I’m announcing on Friday 🎉😝 I’ve been waiting a year and a half for this and I can’t believe it’s happening so soon!!! Here’s a reminder that if you want something, put it out in the world and manifest that sh*t!! 👊🏽
Stay tuned 👀
All happiness depends on a leisurely BREAKFAST.🍽😋
Will we look back down on 99 years of a wonderful life?
Where we laughed and we cried and our love grew stronger with every fight
Was feeling all the smooth criminal dance vibes until @angelaandannie
told me I was holding this super cute bag the complete wrong way 🙈
Those pancakes from the other day really got me missing home 🍁
(I'd also much rather be here than being squished to death on my morning commute right now)

Get yourself friends who you can go cruising with 🏍
I sat on the floor inside of the Blue Mosque, watched the ceilings and watched the people watching the ceilings. It was delightful to see their surprised expressions as they walked in and looked up. Everyone responded slightly different: a mouth drop, a 'wow', some grabbed the camera immediately as if the ceilings were about to fall, while others would do it like me and stare at it curiously quiet. .
One thing they all had in common with me: the felling of witnessing something truly special. 😍
Faces in the stone 📍Bayon Temple, Siem Reap Cambodia.
En route to the states, currently completed flight 1/3, reflecting on my 2.5 weeks spent in Vietnam and I have to say that Ninh Bình was my favorite location. Sure, the city of lanterns was AMAZING.... but crowded. Halong beautiful, but touristy. But Ninh Bình? A beauty unlike anything I’d ever seen, and not overrun by tourists. More off the beaten path, here you get a true sense of Vietnam. Most locals don’t speak English, and WiFi is hard to come across. It’s the perfect place to disconnect and discover the surrounding beauty. • Constantly feeling as though I was on the set of Jurassic Park, I’d have to encourage anyone and everyone visiting Vietnam to make a stop here 🇻🇳 •
historic & steadfast old friends.
Wearing my administration hat for Laude this week with a whole bunch of #organizing
Busy season is finally slowing down. I'm so thankful to catch up on the many loose ends that I just couldn't get to over the last few months. I've even taken two weekday naps for the first time since busy season started (in November?). All is right with the world again. 🙌🏻
There are a lot of little joys in the works that I can't wait to share with you over the next few months. Stay tuned! ✨
And when the titans grow tired of us, they’ll throw their thunder.
And the day is finally here that I’ll be jetting off to Hokkaido in a bit! Super stoked to be experiencing winter, snow and Japan for my very first time ☃️ Be right back, KL!
Something I have been saying a lot lately is “it will all be ok”. Whatever difficulties you may be going through know that it will all be ok. As bad as it may seem at this moment, it will pass. Have trust in the process, have patience. You are surrounded by love, light and divine angels. You are loved.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
No, non lo metto mai di sabato 🤷🏻♀️
