▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #latergram Before leaving the Everglades, we had one last stop. 🛑 AIRBOAT RIDE!!! 🐊 That’s right! We parked the RV in the bus lot and enjoyed some fun-in-the-sun. ☀️ Originally, weren’t all that excited to do this. It’s not that we didn’t want to — we just had no expectations. Sometimes I think that’s the best way to go into something. It ended up being an incredible experience!! The weather was perfect and the gators were out. We had so much fun!! ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▪️▪️▪️November 18, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #everglades #florida #miami #gator #airboat #gatorpark #sun #anhinga #bird #explore #fun #lifeontheroad #livingourdream #nationalpark #nomad #offthegrid #simplelife #thebigwanderer #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #unconventionalliving #rvlistings
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ Day 7 of the Everglades... #latergram 🦅 Brad spent some time working on our kitchen backsplash, while I read. 📖 We nearly let the entire day pass us by. With just two hours of sunlight left, we got ready for our last hike/walk. 🥾 This was our final day in the park; and we still hadn’t gone to see the Anhinga nest, that was around the corner from us. We decided to walked down to the amphitheater where it has nested along the roadside. We can’t remember if it was a male or female, but we do know it was a real ham. 📸 We watched “him” for awhile. Then we jumped on the Guy Bradley trail and took it over to the marina. We watched the sunset there and then jogged back. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️ It was a great ending to our week in the Everglades National Park. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▪️▪️▪️November 18, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #everglades #florida #sunset #sun #anhinga #bird #explore #fun #lifeontheroad #livingourdream #nationalpark #nomad #offthegrid #simplelife #thebigwanderer #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #unconventionalliving
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ Day 6 of the Everglades... #latergram 🌅 This day was a rest day. We were worn out from the back-to-back day trips and all the driving. 😴 Here are some random sightings that happened during our week stay. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▪️▪️▪️November 17, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #everglades #miami #keywest #florida #sunset #sun #turtle #bird #explore #fun #lifeontheroad #livingourdream #nationalpark #nomad #offthegrid #simplelife #thebigwanderer #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #unconventionalliving
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ Day 5 of the Everglades... #latergram 🗾 We drove 9 hours to and from📍Key West, for a day trip. We will say that it probably would have been more fun to stay longer with some friends. However, we did enjoy a PERFECT day of sunshine and sightseeing. It ended up being a rare 70 degree day — not a cloud in the sky (that part’s not so rare). ☀️ Here we are at the Southernmost Point of the United States. 🇺🇸 If you’ve ever been there before, you might remember the line of people. Or how the person behind you takes your photo. 📸 Idk if you’re like me, but I kind of take my pictures seriously. So, when I learned that a total stranger would be taking our photo, I began judging everyone. I was searching for someone that looked like they meant business. 💼 We ended up in front of someone I didn’t think was up for the task. I mean, I didn’t want to make Brad wait in the line again for a retake. So, I tried to inconspicuously get out of line and get behind them. My hope was someone more serious would come along. (Yes! I’m terrible!!! How was I to know if the gentleman could take a good photo or not? I completely judged a book by its cover.) 🤷‍♀️ Long story short, the man that we were in front of... then got behind... had 2 boys. One started talking camera settings and lighting.💡 I had to interrupt and ask the boy to take our photo. He agreed and this was the result! I just did a little cropping. ✂️ Thanks, kid! Wherever you are. You’re the real MVP! And for the record, his dad ended up saying that his son would do a much better job than he ever could... because he has no idea what he’s doing with his phone. 🥳 ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▪️▪️▪️November 16, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #keywest #florida #southernmostpoint #sun #explore #fun #lifeontheroad #livingourdream #nomad #offthegrid #simplelife #thebigwanderer #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #unconventionalliving #marshalls #tjmaxx #rvlistings
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ Day 4 of the Everglades... #latergram 👩‍🎨👨‍🎨 We took a day trip to the📍Wynwood Art District of Miami. Mallory had just been to South Beach for a bachelorette trip, but she decided to do a beach day instead of visiting Wynwood. It was something she still wanted to see and we are sure glad we went. The place is so unique — covered in art and graffiti. They’re also starting to add some neat architecture to the area. 🎨 The food also looked amazing while we were researching. We decided to eat at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar. It was tapas style food — Mal is a huge fan. However, we were disappointed with this place. Just our opinion, but it was definitely overrated. It’s a shame because Miami knows their food! #foodieheaven 🥘 We will say that one of our favorite parts of the trip was our drive into the city. We decided to pop off the interstate and ended up on Old Cutler Road. It’s about a 15 mile stretch of some magnificent estates. We couldn’t believe how many beautiful properties there were. We just felt a little out of place with our cowboy truck. “Yee Haw” 🤠 ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▪️▪️▪️November 15, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️#wynwood #miami #florida #graffiti #art #oldcutlerroad #explore #fun #lifeontheroad #livingourdream #nomad #offthegrid #simplelife #thebigwanderer #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #unconventionalliving #wildernessculture
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ Day 3 of the Everglades... #latergram 🐍 We ventured out for another hike. We came across this bridge/pier that had been damaged by Hurricane Irma. We instantly remembered the story our tour guide had shared the day before. She told us that the Everglades is the only place in the world that has freshwater gators and salt water crocodiles. We tried to confirm that crocs were more aggressive and her response was that she had encountered several in her day, but had never had a problem. Then she nonchalantly goes into a story about paddle boarding one afternoon and a croc grabbed ahold of her paddle and began to tug. 😱 There’s no way in hell that we would have handled that as calmly as she suggested, so we avoided walking any further out on the pier. 🙅‍♀️🐊🙅‍♂️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▪️▪️▪️November 14, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️#alligator #gators #crocodile #snake #everglades #nationalparks #homestead #florida #apple #iphone #explore #fun #lifeontheroad #livingourdream #nomad #offthegrid #simplelife #thebigwanderer #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #unconventionalliving #wildernessculture
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ Day 2 of the Everglades... #latergram 🐊 Our nice camera broke as we were pulling into the park. 😭 This was over a month ago and we still haven’t got it fixed. #procrastinators We are doing whatever we can, to take decent photos, with our older iPhones. 🙄 (😉Taking donations for a new one 📲 @apple @verizon @att ) 🐊 Anyways, we did a free guided tour of the Anhinga Trail and saw our first alligators. 🐊 We were also told that the vultures are a real problem there. They will eat the rubber off of your windshield wiper blades and tires. Thankfully we didn’t have that happen, but they definitely frequented our RV. We could hear them running across the roof & squawking in the early mornings. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▪️▪️▪️November 13, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️#alligators #gators #everglades #nationalparks #homestead #florida #apple #iphone #explore #fun #lifeontheroad #livingourdream #nomad #offthegrid #simplelife #thebigwanderer #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #unconventionalliving #wildernessculture
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ After a 5 hour drive, from North Port to the Everglades National Park, Big Hairy was in need of some fresh air... as were we. 🐈 We had a campsite back in the Flamingo campground. It was another 45 minutes from the entrance. It was a nice drive even though Mallory didn’t have phone service. *Hints all of these #latergrams . 🐈 We were there for 1 week and made a few days trips out of the park. We will post those next! ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▪️▪️▪️November 12, 2018▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #catsofinstagram #maincoon #everglades #nationalparks #evergladesnationalpark #florida #campeveryday #fun #freedom #keystonerv #lifeontheroad #livingthegoodlife #livingourdream #nomad #offthegrid #ontheroad #rv #rvlife #simplelife #tinyhome #tinyhomeonwheels #thebigwanderer #thesimplelife #travel #travelblogger #travelgram #traveltheusa #wanderlust #wildernessculture
“The reason why I like you? There is no reason. There should be no reason. If you love someone because of a reason, when that reason is gone, your heart will change too. I like you without a reason. I like you because you are you.” Happy Monday, friends! The holidays are a busy time, but they’re always the best when surrounded by family, friends, and those you love! 🥰❤️ . . . . . #photography #houston #lovinglife #adventure #lovelife #justexplore #everysquareastory #photosinbetween #lovelysquares #littlestoriesofmylife #thebigwanderer #oneofthebunch #inspiremyinstagram #nightslikethese #seekthesimplicity #pursuewhatislovely #liveunscripted #insearchofjoy #finditliveit #justgoshoot #huntgram #nothingisordinary_ #vscogoodshot #takemethere #visualgang #wicklowheights #htx #loveofmylife

Immerse yourself in life. I can’t see the water and not swim, see a cliff and not jump, beautiful streets and not explore them, front flip from boats, hike every montain, dance stupidly on the beach, get really really excited countless times a day. Don’t run from rain but soak it in, run up mountains through downpour and love the adventure more for it. There’s so much I’m yet to do, and I’m ecstatic to do it all. Let’s live extraordinary lives just because we can! ✌🏻☀️💦 . One of my new favorite pastimes. Still can’t bring myself to dive in 😂 Going in headfirst takes a whole other kind courage to just jumping. I will get there though! Watch this space... 😂 Video of me being chicken, even though it wasn’t high at all, in my stories! 🙈 . Also happy youth day South Africans There is never a time to stop being young, wild and free ✌🏻🔥🇿🇦 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - This is my favorite spot in Sicily, #capogallo nature reserve.

This is from my very first plane ride. I took twelve more that same year, but this one will always be special. I remember being excited while we were taking off, but the minute we ascended into the white clouds lit by sun, I thought we’d died and this was what heaven looked like. ☁️🛫☁️☁️☁️ x x x #everysquareastory #photosinbetween #lovelysquares #inspiremyinstagram #visualcrush #feelfreefeed #seekthesimplicity #darlingmovement #postitfortheaesthetic #pursuewhatislovely #fromabove #liveunscripted #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #darlingdaily #aestheticpursuit #girlsborntotravel #exploremore #letsgosomewhere #nothingisordinary_ #vscogoodshot #posttheordinary #chasinglight #livethelittlethings #thespacesilike #littlestoriesofmylife #finditliveit #livemoremagic #dreamylittleplaces #thebigwanderer
feelin those sprained ankle vibes ☠️ A few months ago I did the most walking I’d ever done in my life when I spent less than 24hrs in Paris and saw all of the major tourist attractions. Well, today I surpassed that by walking for six hours straight around @universityofky ’s campus taking graduation pics. x x x #thetravelgrammersguide #sheisnotlost #girlslovetravel #sharetravelpics #girlsborntotravel #sidewalkerdaily #justgoshoot #exploremore #letsgosomewhere #nothingisordinary_ #vscogoodshot #posttheordinary #takemethere #visualgang #prettylittletrips #darlingescapes #theprettypersuit #searchwondercollect #littlestoriesofmylife #livemoremagic #thebigwanderer #everysquareastory #photosinbetween #lovelysquares #inspiremyinstagram #feelfreefeed #postitfortheaesthetic #aestheticpursuit #topparisphoto #igersparis
