Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. ✨
Exploring the newly built Patrika gate built on a traffic circle in Jaipur ✨
I’m selling these two beautiful ladies (not to mention they are smart too, I don’t want to scare the boys) for a good price. For those who are interested kindly send me a DM and lets negotiate. 😂
I walked through the ghats keeping my head low, trying not to stare at the burning pyres of human remains.. feeling like an imposter, like I’m intruding on something incredibly personal and shouldn’t be there, but no one seems to notice, or maybe they just didn’t mind.
Instead they stand in groups draping flowers across the body of their loved ones along the river before the wooden biers are set ablaze. As the smoke billows, ashes begin to rain down, and soon the only thing that even slightly resembles what-was-once a human body becomes the two bony feet protruding from one side.
The ghats are an open air crematorium where Hindu’s burn their loved ones so that their ashes may be cleansed by the holy water in the Ganges, and their soul may be free to reincarnate. This is an incredibly important ritual in the Hindu culture. For this reason many Babas (holy men) migrate to these places.. which is where I met this man pictured, he sat mumbling a mantra with his face and body covered in ashes..
Every 12 years In India there is a festival held called Kumbha Mela, where Hindi’s travel to bathe in the 4 sacred rivers to cleanse their souls of sin. It is regarded as the "world's largest peaceful congregation of religious pilgrims". This is festival is taking place right now and is expected to have more than 150 million pilgrims migrating to the Ganges River by March.
I’m making some changes.. ill be posting a lot more of my actual photography and the stories behind them. I hope you all continue to enjoy my content, I’ll still post a selfie here and there, but Id like for you guys to get to know the real me and vice versa..
See the entire collection in the gallery on my website. Link in bio!
New blog about San Miguel de Allende- an alternative travel destination in Mexico that will enchant you upon arrival ❤️ #visitmexico #vivemexico
Who are these people?
Idk but I love them and I never want to take another day or experience for granted. •
• “You never know what tomorrow will bring” is a true statement. •
I’m determined to get better at not just “living in the moment” but truly truly appreciating the moments that I’m in.
But using photos from the past 😂 #Classic
She sat there solemnly staring at the lake, wondering how much more her little heart could take.

Sunset from the top of the hill in Amelia, Italy 🇮🇹
This gem of a town is located in Umbria, Italy. And this region of Italy just so happens to be where you can find Umbrian clay, the secret skincare ingredient that local women have been prescribing to for years. The clay is high in silica and has a neutral ph. It opens your pours and leaves you with glowing skin. And you only have to take a look at the women in town for proof.
So if this sunset isn’t enough to convince you to visit Amelia, maybe some skincare is?

In Japan many companies hire people to hand out small packages of tissues which include a small advertisement flyer. Having ended up with a few packets of those myself I’m finally glad it all sense 🤧
Happy Friday, everyone! Hope your enjoy those beers wherever in the world you may be kicking off your weekend 🌍🍻🥳
This was at Tampa’s newly opened hipster hotspot, Sparkman Wharf. But tonight, I’ll be keeping warm (and cozy) in a classic British pub 🇬🇧😜
Have a good one! ✨💫🌟
Cheers to making it through the week 🍸| #traveltip
- Kuala Lumpur is an easy stop over destination and as someone who loves a good view, look no further than grabbing a sunset drink at @helilounge.
You’ll get amazing views of the city and the famous Petronas Twin Towers.
Souvenir translates to memory in French. So I’d like to think that whatever I collect on my travels will be just that - a little something that takes me back to that destination, that moment, that experience.
Backpacking, seashells quickly became my go-to souvenir. With very little space in my backpack (and quite frankly, funds), they were something small (and free) that I could take as a little token of each place. From the beaches in Northern Brazil, and then in Colombia. From Holbox - the Mexican island I adore. From Vietnam’s Halong Bay and every single beautiful Filipino island I fell for. 🌴🌊
They got VERY heavy by the end, but back home, in the dead of winter, they still bring a little sunshine 🐚☀️
And I know, this photo will probably bomb on the likes, but I’m cool with that 💣😜
Guess who’s back, back again. DC’s back, tell a friend || For those who haven’t seen my Insta stories, I’m finally back in London from a much needed three week holiday in Singapore and Malaysia. There are so many places I’m excited to share with you from my travels. The first of which is Central Perk. In an homage to the @friends
hangout spot, this cafe in Clarke Quay is decked out in Friends related decor, including Monica and Rachel’s kitchen and the infamous couch from the intro. Such a fun place for a friends fanatic like myself. If you go, have a cup of one of their six blends based on the characters. ☕️ Friends fans, name your favourite episode(s) below⬇️

I don't get to see it much so I had to stop and think my neighborhood is just the cutest 💝 most little girls grew up dreaming of a house with a white picket fence... I grew up dreaming of a skyrise in the city #chicagogirl #chicagocityworld #uppereastside
That face says, you’re beautiful and I want to be besties, but also, I don’t want to be trampled on, so I’m just gonna keep a little bit of distance, k? 🐘😘
Pic taken whilst visiting an elephant sanctuary just outside of Chiang Mai, Thailand 🇹🇭 I loved it, but not all elephant sanctuaries are created equal. Many claim to treat the elephants with care and offer rehabilitation, but the sad reality is that this isn’t always the case. Some are still abused and heavily drugged to boost tourism. Do your research before booking a tour so you can truly support a good cause - and travel responsibility whilst you’re at it 🙌🏼
