Here’s a bunch of corporate-y pictures of me looking happy, but I’m gonna let you in on a secret...I was dead tired and v irritated at most people surrounding me. Work travel burnout is real guys 😒😫😭, but I’ve learned some coping strategies:
-Go to bed early if at all possible. 😴
-Don’t keep your lap top in bed with you and close the blue screen at night.💻
-Indulge in fun facial masks at night. (Thanks for this tip, @brittanyrneish
-Exercise or at least walk around the hotel in your downtime.🏃🏻♀️
-Bring fuzzy slippers and a big hoodie to relax in.
-Take a day off when you get home to pamper yourself💅🏼, sleep in and do all of the normal things (i.e. grocery shop, clean, laundry, etc.)
If you travel for work, how do you avoid burnout?
P.S. Another rather hated tip...get the side salad 🥗 instead of the fries 🍟...
We have left Hawaii 🌺 and are now on day 2 of the sea days 🌊🛳🌊 back to Vancouver 🇨🇦 only 3 more to go!
Missing the calm and beautiful moment in Sapa 🌿
All’amore, il motore del mondo. 💌
Gorgeous hike on the Walami Trail. Everything is so lush and green here, plus we saw a couple of monkeys, walked over 2 suspension bridges, and saw some of the original stone bridges built during the Japanese occupation. #hiketaiwan
We caught the tail end of the daylily season on Sixty Stone Mountain. The tea farm in the 2nd photo sits atop the mountain overlooking the valley below. #beautifulsights #taiwantravel
Puerh, which is processed in a special way to encourage microbial fermentation after the leaves are dried, ages more dynamically than any other tea on the market resulting in a wonderfully earthy aroma.
One of the beautiful sunset views can be witnessed in the #Philippines
La più grande storia d’amore mai raccontata, è la nostra. 🔗❤️
The caption of this photo should read: “Please don’t look too closely at my messy hotel room.” 🙏🏼
I’m still recovering from my association’s annual conference (aka six 12-hour days with too many logistics, tiny details and late nights filled with wine 🍷 and PowerPoints). One fun thing that I got to experience during this crazy work schedule was @trvlporter
👠👗👜. This service styles a wardrobe for your trip and sends it directly to your hotel. Once you’ve worn your pieces, you mail it back in their pre-paid packaging by dropping it off at the concierge desk.
I loved this red dress 💃🏻that they sent me and received a lot of compliments on it. Try it out on your next trip & let me know what you think! #sponsored
I gave Dan a shock when I hit the brakes to avoid a collision with this little guy. The Shingleback Lizard is an Australian native and I was excited to see one so close to home (this was literally around the corner from my place!) 😍
Good morning Honolulu 🌺 Hawaii 🌴
Take me back to England where my days were filled with tea times and strolls in the park.
Yay Finally back at home home sweet home! Malaysia&Singapore were absolutely beautiful places. It amazed every single day with lots of different aspects. Didn’t expect that these countries could be so charming and fun travel spots 🌈 After 2 weeks of traveling in Malaysia, I’ve got million things to do. I don’t even know where to start 😂. Any good tips for time efficiency!?
말레이시아에 2주나 있다 왔더니 집이 어찌나 이렇게 포근하고 좋은지. 푹자고 일어나보니 할일이 산더미 처럼 쌓여버렸다. 달콤한 2주의 휴가도 이제 끝이나고 일상으로 돌아가야할 시간 🌿 가끔 여행을 하면서 아이러니 하게 일상이나 일의 바쁨이 그리워질때가 있다. 돌아가면 이것부터 해야지 하며 차근차근 해야할일을 생각하는 걸 보면, 여행은 생각을 정리하고, 쉬면서도 동기부여, 즉 삶의 또다른 에너지를 불어 넣는 것이라 생각이 든다💫

Here is your token sea day 🌊 photo! We are on day 5 out 5 days at sea 🛳 Hilo, Hawaii tomorrow 🌴😁🇺🇸
It was a clear, dark night and the stars spangled brilliantly in the absence of the bright moon. Nathan wanted me to walk down through the forest, across the blackened beach and onto the seemingly distant rocky headland, so he could shoot a long exposure from a lookout of me perched on the hill with the Milkyway scattered overhead. It sounded so magical, but the idea of the short 15 minute walk alone, in the dark depths of the night, had me almost choking on my own fear. You see, I’m scared of the dark. I would even go as far as calling it a phobia, “an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.” Those 15 minutes in the pitch black, the assault of illogical scenarios whirring through my mind, the blood from my racing heart thumping deafeningly in my ears. I really wanted to go. I willed myself to go. I wished I could be brave on such a beautiful, peaceful night. But in the end I just couldn’t and this is as far as I got. Maybe next time. 📷 @nathanbloemersphoto
