~ little best friend appreciation for @maddietorresin who showed me around her hometown in 🇨🇦 ~ • • Almost all of my trips around the US, and then Canada, this year were mainly possible due to the amazing friends I had showing me around their homes and cities - “the local way”. To me, that is the most luxurious type of travel. • • Can’t wait to return the favor when you guys come visit me in 🇳🇱 @maddietorresin @laurasarah @urguyry • • • 📍Niagara Falls, Ontario #canada #ontario #niagarafalls #niagarafallscanada #niagara_falls #niagaraphotographer #sheexplores #girlsthattravel #wanderlust #earth #globetrotter #global_hotshotz #wanderlust #wanderland #wanderingwoman #travel #travelrepost #travelblogger #travelgram #darlingescapes #girlmeetsworld #girlsmeetsglobe #thewanderfullife #awesome_earthpix #keepexploring #keepexploringcanada #travelmore #travelmethat #livetheadventure #adventureseekers #adventuresthatlives
An engaging conversation/discussion about the land, the site, the varietals, the wines, its logo, the soils, its priced saddle awards … . . My two picks from the line-up; Texas Viognier Reserve with crisp acid, citrus fruits and lingering pineapple; Texas Family Reserve, bold flavors of black fruits, spice, toasted almond and finishes with a soft tannin. #cheers 🍷 . . . . . . #PedernalesCellars #TexasHillCountry #TexasWineTrail #TexasWineCountry #Texas # #experience #photography #instamoment #explore #teaching #learning #sommelier #thewanderfullife #learn #travel #echeongsomm
“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” Pablo Picasso . . . A line-up of 14 wines; from light to full-bodied, from single varietal to a blend of many – the Raven is still it for me after all these years … . . . . A good overall tasting experience … the staff and taster can easier be aligned with a little training allowing the staff the ability to share correct information and scaling the taster’s knowledge to great height. Kudos to the staff for trying… . . . . . #BeckerVineyards #TexasHillCountry #TexasWineTrail #TexasWineCountry #Texas # #experience #photography #instamoment #explore #teaching #learning #sommelier #thewanderfullife #learn #travel #echeongsomm
The year 2007, a Texas born (Yates) with his Texas charm won over the Manigolds (the original owners, 1992) in allowing him his dream comes true… a relaxing place for tasting, sharing and learning… Daniel, the Sommelier, is a great sourcebook... And you’re not hurried along. . . My pick from the line-up; estate Sauvignon Blanc – refreshing coupled with bright acid, aromas of grapefruit, honeydew, lemon zest perfect for the hot Texas months . . 2014 The Good Guy (42% Tempranillo, 17% Graciano, 17% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Syrah) – beautiful acid, black fruits, cherries, mocha, violet with hint of spice and a long smooth finish (I can enjoy this wine without food); do not forget to taste the Viognier! . . . . . . . #cheers 🍷 . . . . . . #SpicewoodVineyards #TexasHillCountry #TexasWineTrail #TexasWineCountry #Texas # #experience #photography #instamoment #explore #teaching #learning #sommelier #thewanderfullife #learn #travel #echeongsomm
No, not a drone shot. Just Mark standing on top of a huge rock and me floating around, inevitably capturing me in the most popular floating shot since the dawn of Pinterest... glorious! • If I thought my palm tree obsession was going into overload, my obsession with the turquoise stuff is raging just as hard. I really AM having a glorious time floatin’ around this epic slice of Mother N 🇵🇭 • What’s your most favourite turquoise watered place you’ve ever been?! Tell me in the comments below I’d love to know! • #FitForAdventure ~ #strapintofreedom #getoutstayout #saltyhair #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #gettinglost #lostinwild #discoveryourworld #adventureenthusiast #nomadict #letswander #followyourfeet #getlostclub #sheexplores #womenwhowander #thewanderfullife #livetpexplore #exploremore #goprooftheday #gopropic #ig_philippines #pilipinas #lostinph #saltypresets #ichosetowander #speechlessplaces #roamtheworld #iamatraveler
I spend most of my days covered in paint, caulk and dirt lately. But I don’t think I’d have it any other way. We finished our exterior paint “good enough for now” over the weekend. I have some other exciting details I’d like to add, but right now building a kitchen is more of a priority 🤷🏼‍♀️
“Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what’s outside, but what is inside that counts.” – Aladdin . . . . The open road leading to the Texas Hill Country … depending on the route you’re on, it can be highways and automobiles, or it can be little towns with their own personalities … The extraordinary wealth wrapping the land despite the burning heat ... Each designed to go into places where it is meant to be… . . . #TexasHillCountry #TexasWineTrail #TexasWineCountry #winecountry #Texas #USA #experience #explore #love #learn #travel #landscape #nature #discover #winecountry #instagood #instamoment #passiopassport #echeongsomm
The remote land after Prohibition is no longer isolated… as the industry continues to grow wineries continue to rise from the ground drawing from all over; some for passions, some for hobbies and some just for the simple thought of I want and have a winery ... . There are only a handful of wineries that made wines from 100% Texas-grown grapes (Texas High Plains, Texas Hill Country). You will find wineries that do have a combination of estate wines and wines from juice sourced outside of Texas. There is yet another category; wineries with 100% sourced juice from outside of Texas … . . . For me, you have to know from within the whisper of the land and then crafting the wines to the soul of this land … #cheers 🍷 . . . . . #TexasWineCountry #TexasWineTrail #TexasHillCountry #vineyard #wine #tasting #Texas #learn #travel #explore #neverstopexploring #Travel #winecountry #sommelier #instamoment #wine #echeongsomm
Motivation Monday
This year I’ve been living a life less curated, and that brings me joy.

When Chester lyrics pop into your head. . . . I'm swimming in the smoke Of bridges I have burned So don't apologize I'm losing what I don't deserve . . ❤️ #makechesterproud
How I like my coffee. 😉
Isn’t there a rule about one post a day? Yeah, I don’t follow it. 🤔 / #tbt
This backpack’s been around.
Summer in the PNW.
I’m sorry. The pictures don’t stop. 😜
Find the faces 🙃

🏔 I want more!
On my way to where the air is sweet. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Pub Street...
Getting lost in a maze of shops at this place is something I want to do again.
Loved this serene view on my way to Tam Coc!
cheers to friends 🍾 don't know what I'd do without these girls. I mean...they even showed up in 32 degree weather to pretend it was summer time to pose for photos with me (though I did bribe them with @JamCellars chardonnay!) how lucky am I. 💕 love you both, A & T! . . . . . 📸: @KVCPhotography #funboy #sunnylifeaustralia #MyTradHome #MySouthernLiving #myhousebeautiful #BHGHome #VeryTandC #rshome #bluegraygal #atlantablogger #floridaliving #floridabound #floridavacation #beachdestination #searchwondercollect #artforyoureveryday #thewanderfullife #verytandc #wonderfulglobe #sheisnotlost #DameTraveler #TravelingLadies #TheTravelWomen #WomenWhoExplore #WomenWhoTravel #poolfloats #unicornfloat #AlexisWorld
My number tactic to overcoming fear.... Are you ready? It's so easy any one can do it... . . Support! Ask for help. Realizing you never have to do it alone is a powerful tool that too many people let fall to the wayside. Our egos tell us we can do it ourselves, or that we are "independent". This is just not true. We all have fears. There is no shame in asking for help! It only hinders ourselves! . . Follow @mrsbrittanyjames for more! (Photo By ME! Taken in Florence, Italy)
If there’s anything I learned this past year, it’s that life is short. Things can be taken away from you in an instant — even the things you think could never change. When you want to do something, do it. If you love someone, tell them often. If there’s something you are unhappy with, do what it takes to change your situation. Don’t ever let another person bring you down. And don’t ever be too afraid to pursue your dreams. Yes, even if you end up failing. Who cares? Start over. Get back up. It’s the cheesiest of sayings, and the most cliche, but it’s one of the hardest things to actually do. There are always excuses and obstacles. . Losing Chester a year ago today was something I could never have imagined. He was seemingly at his best. But depression and anxiety aren’t things that suddenly disappear when you “have all your ducks in a row”. It involves continuous and intentional work. . I was going to post another Chester photo today, but as you’ve seen, I’ve already posted/deleted so many in the past. Some days it’s just easier not to reminisce so much. I’ve spent this year trying to redefine myself, and have accepted that there’s a new version of me that I will continue to embrace. . Cheers to you, Chester. I’m happy that you’re resting in peace now. Though I’m not traditionally religious by any means, I’m still going to look to you for guidance throughout the rest of my days. . . . . . . . 📷: @collinburk
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. — Marcus Aurelius
Really, how do you go wrong from up here?
Wow.

I’ve been wanting to take a cool “camping mug in the mountains” picture for years and @collinburk made my dreams come true. 😜 Even better, with great wine.
Golden hour at this weekend’s campsite.
Always the best sunsets with you.
Of course he would find a random cup to chew on while I’m stretching.😏 I have had quite a bit of time on my hands lately while Iv been waiting for the school year to start up again and the hubs to be done studying for his 2nd board test😫. Let me tell you it has been nice! (The time, not the board studying) while I have had time and continue to have time I have been trying to make a conscious effort to stretch myself in more ways than one. I have been trying to find new things for exercise that I like, new hobbies to pick up, and taking time for myself to really reflect on how I want my life to go. It’s hard sometimes with med school because, well, you just do what they tell ya haha. • • But I’ve found that no matter the circumstance it’s important to find things for me and make sure that I find something that I find important for me to do everyday. It’s not that I didn’t know this already, but it’s always a good reminder to know that you have to find things for yourself and continue to improve! Continue to stretch and find those things that make you happy! 💛 #longrantover #optoutside #doodles #goldendoodle #hikingadventures #trailrunner #trailrunning #runningwithdogs #secondskin #dogmom #dogmommylife #womenwithdogs #ruffwear #hikerchicks #adventuredog #exploredog #goldendoodlesofinsta #exercise #fit #friday #anybodycanrun #irunthisbody #thewanderfullife #offleashsisterhood #outdoorwomen #peoplewhoadventure #outdooradventurephotos #dogisgood #adventuredognation #ihavearunnersbody
#ihavearunnersbody regram from 🐶 @samson_thegoldendoodle8 ・・・ Happy B I R T H D A Y to my best fur friend! Dog birthdays depress me actually.. because dogs don’t live as long as us😞. But that’s why we have to treasure every moment with them! Give into those puppy eyes and heads on your lap. We have to give in when they drop their toy I front of us for the millionth time or when they want to go for a walk again! Give in, they’re just trying to fit it all in. ❤️ #3 • • • #medschoolwife #rei #ruffwear #optoutside #medicalschoolwife #outdooradventurephotos #womenwhoexplore #dogmommy #peoplewhoadventure #dogmommys #medschoolwifeadventure #goldendoodlesofinstagram #hikingdog #optoutside #rei #wildernessculture #mountaingirls #trekkingtoes #womenwhoexplore #adventuredognation #thewanderfullife #chocolatedoodle #adventure #adventuredog #campingwithdogs #hikingadventures #thegreatoutdogs #dogisgood #girlsthathike #mountaindogs #offleashsisterhood

Cold weather makes me reminisce Flagstaff. A very charming town and the place where I fell in love with travelling all over again. . . . . My first time travelling alone and staying in a hostel I met a guy. Tall, handsome, and dreamy. We had dinner and walked around the town. Our conversations went from watching Star Wars to dark sky cities to wasabi and sake to religion and humanism. The next night it was about the Grand Canyon to wine to the voyager and Carl Sagan and the countries he’s been. I was enthralled and the more I learn the more I want to learn and experience the places being told to me. That was the start and my thirst for the places I’ve never been to became stronger. I always wonder if I never met him, I probably would’ve stayed put. I guess some people will have a big impact on your life although they are only part of it for a very brief period of time. . . . I know I should blog but I’m too lazy so just putting it here 😅 . . #shotoniphone #shotoniphone6plus #wanderlust #solotravel #travelinladies #girlswholovetravel #sheadventures #backpackers #digitalnomad #thewanderfullife #beautifuldestinations #pinoy #pinoytravel
Envying everything outside of this 112° heat in the desert. I need cooler weather, shade, and more places like this.
Trying to keep myself motivated by looking through recent adventures. More flying, hiking, camping, and adventuring next week!
Sometimes we get so caught up in pleasing others, in being concerned about their opinions, and in being judged, that we forget to have enough conviction in our own decisions. Here’s a timely reminder to stay true to yourself.

I always end up walking to this place because there’s a bingsu place on the left and the taste is phenomenal 👌🏼
