This huge earth is magnificent; how glorious to have my favourite paradise so close to home🌎🏔 #earthday #earthday2018
“Our planet, they say, can never return to what it was before the onset of the industrial era and the change it unleashed worldwide. But there is reason to hold onto hope and take heart as we confront the challenges ahead — reshaping our perspectives, banding together in collective action that conserves resources and restores the environment, and making individual choices that lessen our impact and uphold our responsibility for its health.” #EarthDay #protectourplanet #savetheearth
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world...🌎 Happy #EarthDay
& National Parks Week. Time to get outside & play! ✌🏻
It goes without saying by now that we need to protect our home. Earth is fragile as it is powerful, rare as it is abundant, seemingly infinite and yet susceptible to our mortal doings.
This year I’m making strides to reduce my plastic waste, become more conscious about my clothing choices, and adopt sustainable practices everyday. But living in a concrete jungle is hard, and it’s easy to ignore the day to day damages of my actions when I’m ensconced within modern comforts. I must remind myself of places like this that I’ve seen on my travels, when I felt so small next to the immensity of nature. And I must remember that I have an impact, good or bad, that can ripple thousands of miles around the globe.
So even if you can only do something small, like saying no to plastic straws or bringing your own grocery bags, make that small change because it can still have a big impact.
Happy Sunday ✨Finally starting to feel like spring around here. Orders will be shipped out first thing tomorrow morning!
...and then we jumped off 🤪
I'm coming down from 1.5 months living and volunteering in Katmandhu. It was an incredible and humbling experience that I'll never forget. It tested me in many many ways. Like my ability to dodge yaks on a downhill mountain bike. Or pee in hole without peeing on myself. Or remain calm when the taxi can't find you because addresses just don't exist. But at it's very core, Nepal is home to some some of kindest, most beautiful people I have ever met.
For the past few years I've been enthralled by this nomadic lifestyle because it's felt so new and different. A constant shock to the system that's kept life interesting. I'm eternally grateful for it. As I sit in the airport I can't help but feel as if I've worn my backpack a little too long. Travelling feels normal. Saying goodbye feels normal. But staying in one place? Establishing some roots? That feels vastly different and exciting to me. I'm finally ready to be home 👋🇨🇦
Let's talk about fear. Yesterday my fear of heights had to take a backseat. If you've ever watched my insta stories, I talk about this often.
Yesterday, we woke up in Orange County and headed down to San Diego so Chance could surf. We also wanted to explore Sunset Cliffs. My friend @seekelsgo
had been and I wanted to see it for myself. Typically you go at a negative low tide so that you can wade the shoreline to the sea caves but yesterday that negative low tide still wasn't low enough. We would have been swimming in seaweed -- no thanks! Instead, we took the sketchy way down, which involved climbing down a mini-cliff to a tiny cove. I totally don't recommend this lol but YOLO🤙🏻. I actually had to have my husband go down first to check it out and then come back up and get me. It was the only way I could work up the courage. The juice was worth the squeeze on this one tho. The cave was freaking stunning. We had difficulty shooting this one because the inside light was super dark and the outside light was really harsh. But I hope you enjoy this photo anyhow. If the tides line up, I've heard this is a magical spot at sunset. Hopefully, I can experience that someday.
Please tell me I'm not alone. Anyone else afraid of heights?
Roper Ring ✨ still available in the shop!
Happy Saturday! I believe my days of “sleeping in” are over. No alarm this morning but up at 6:00am. It’s ok when you walk outside and see this. Just wish the clouds didn’t cover El Yunque. #luquillo
Indians rock the group selfies 😂👌!!!
This little gang insisted that I take a picture of them together, so here we go 🤗
The iconic Hawa Mahal in Jaipur
I always have to look up the correct spelling! Tawa Mahal, Maha Tamal, Maha Hawal 🤔😅....
When you type "Jaipur" into Google most pictures are of this building and it looks super huge and incredible beautiful!
As always it's just about the right angle and good light as it's quiet unspectacular when you see it in real life and compare it with that picture in your head 🙈...
When I first saw this dog I thought he's dead.
But then he moved and the poor state he was in made me cry.
I got used to seeing animals suffering a lot in India. I got quiet cold-hearted by time and shutted out all the sadness, all the dogs that are starving, broken legs, terrible skin diseases, sad eyes looking at you, tiny baby puppies that are still so so friendly and want to be petted even though they get kicked by humans, so that I could go on without letting this touch my heart. Only the most extreme scenes got me or when I was off guard, one time I saw a dead tiny puppy lying at the street with all the other rubbish. Shook me hard 😖.... It's definitely not the humans that are in a bad state (I didn't saw one person that looked like he's about to starve) but the environment and the animals that can't help themselves.
I don't know if I'm allowed to post this here in instagram but I hope it doesn't get deleted, it's important to not turn a blind eye on it and only show the beautiful temples & stuff!
Adventures are better with friends ❤
Dirty feet since I arrived in India!
Washing them is almost pointless here and when I wash my hands I need two or three rounds until they seem to be clean. Hand sanitizer is becoming your best friend here 😉.. Never cared about this before, nor did I had hand sanitizer whilst my last trip 😶
The cows here may be holy but still they have to eat leftovers of the Indian food and rubbish that lies around the streets.
Through the whole chaos that's always happening at Indian streets with all the honking and beeping of the tuktuks, crowds of people pushing by, street dogs and scooters they move unimpressed with calmness and grace
I still don't know how to feel about the camel desert tour 🤔...
Is it animal abuse or not?
Support it or avoid it?
Camels for sure doesn't exist to carry us humans around but they were treated good, looked healthy and had long long times to rest..
The locals life of those tours and depend on the income of the tourists. So if there's no demand for camel tours they loose their job. And I don't know if there's so many other job options in the desert.
Maybe they could just slightly change it into a walking-camel-tour 🤗! Instead of riding the camels I would be totally happy to just walk them in the desert 😁! (And of course there could be tourist tours that simply doesn't include animals)
What's your thoughts to that topic?

I spoke to my 90 year old grandmother yesterday. She asked me if I was ready to come “home”. I didn’t want to tell her that I am home. #Puertorico
On August 3rd we're expecting a little prince ❤️💙
I've been wanting to share these news with you guys for so long!
Definitely have to show mini my love for nature, travel and motorcycles 😀
Not the best photo, cuz you can't really tell what's going on, but Collin took this photo of me leading Phoenix, and I was super happy. I'm having so much fun here at Smith. Ive been here twice in the past, for a few days at a time, and never had fun here. The first time, because I was super sad about something and stayed in Lizzys van while she worked and I cried all day and ate all of her snacks, and the second time, I just was in a phase where I was not psyched on climbing, and didn't want to climb at all or really be here.
I'm glad my views of Smith have changed and it's no longer just a place of bad memories..Haha. It's been great seeing all my friends I haven't seen in awhile either, and pushing myself to lead sport and go above bolts and do scary starts where the bolt is way freaking stupid high.
Beauty ✨ everyday I’m grateful for my sisterhood, you know who you are! Shine on ladies!
Almost felt like we were back in San Diego. Where da beach at?! 🏖🌊 #LostInTrillium

Never in my life have I been in such awe with rocks. Literally starred at rocks and desert🌵for hours on our way here. But this place was just too much beauty to handle. Nuts to see in person some of these sandstone buttes standing at more than 1,000 feet tall. 😲 The result of millions of years of erosion by wind and water that left us this incredible flat valley with the coolest, random rock formations. 🏜💫
A lot of rain over the past few days! Fresh water meets the ocean. #Luquillo
Water or mountains? Which do you prefer? 💦 Tell us your preferences and about some of your favorite trails in the comments⬇️:
, literally can never make up my mind between the two, so I absolutely love when I find trails that give me both. There is something special and magical about connecting with the earth in both solid and fluid forms. Kauai has a wealth of these sorts of trails, - thousands of trees surrounded by pristine water - whether it be water by waterfall, river, or ocean. The island has been facing massive flooding over the last week, so let’s say a prayer for our friends (and trails!!) in Kauai. #kauaistrong
