We build too many walls and not enough bridges - Isaac Newton. Do you agree? ☀️ First time visiting the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and I took the opportunity to do a little bit of yoga with a view and this quote came to my mind. So I went ahead and build a bridge on my own. Inside and outside. It's not much but it's a start. . . . #travelingyogi #gypsyon #nomad #lifeontheroad #yogisofig #bridgepose #backpacker #tasteintravel #girlswanderlust #globetrotter #worldtravelbook #wanderous #wonderous #bikeday #goldengate #goldengatepark #sanfrancisco #yogawithaview #backbend #sanfranyoga #lululemon #buildingbridges
I kinda love San Francisco. It has amazing food, cute little shops, bars, boats and SEA LIONS! Basically everything I look for in a city 😇 @brendanvanson
Life is a journey, not a destination. Stop, rest, and continue. Who needs two 6 months holiday every year? 🙋🏼

It's at this time of year, in what always seems the longest and darkest month that I'm so excited for summer days.

🏄🏻‍♂️ One of the best surfspots in the world is nearby Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa. Me and my friend got to spend 3 weeks here for some schoolwork.. one of the things we enjoyed in our free time was sitting on our balcony watching surfers... Can you blame us? 😁 . . 💙🌍 . . . . . #instatravel #travelgram #travel #passportlife #wanderlust #wandering #ladiesgoneglobal #girlsborntotravel #girlswanderlust #girlslovetravel #wetravelgirls #wearetravelgirls #darlingescapes #girlsthattravel #surf #surfing #surfinglife #surfer #waves #watersport #jeffreysbay #stfrancisbay #southafrica
🎶And so I wake in the morning And I step outside And I take a deep breath and I get real high And I scream from the top of my lungs What's going on!? 🎶 📸: @sarahleebeast

I've mentioned a few times that Jeremy and I are not Morning People. We're usually lucky to roll out of bed before 10am when we're traveling, and if we manage to actually go outside by noon, it's a damn miracle. But Hallstatt, Austria was different. Hallstatt turned me into a Morning Person. . I couldn't wait to jump into bed and fall asleep so I could wake up and play in the freshly fallen snow. I kept waking up over and over again throughout the night to stare outside at the falling snow with giddy delight - is it time to wake up yet? Is it time? Finally at 6am, I could no longer contain my excitement. . With the kind of morning energy I imagine that Morning People are able to summon each day at will, I bounded out of bed, leapt across the floor of our 700-year-old guest house room, and flung myself at the window. There, across the quiet pitched roofs of Hallstatt, was the tiniest like smudge of pink rising behind one gloriously white Alp. . The street below our window, which last night had held throngs of cheerful tourists, was quiet and empty. Snow sat gracefully on top of the town like a cozy blanket. Even the giant yellow star hanging outside of our balcony - a symbol we saw throughout Hallstatt - had a coating of snow. The town was ours to explore, and there was nobody to see it this early but us. . Are you a morning person? Is this just like, your life?!?! Tell me about how to be a morning person (or how you totally aren't, like me) in the comments! #dachsteinsalzkammergut #hallstatt #mytinyatlas
Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better. ☀️🌲❄️🏔 . Get out there and explore a little bit, you don’t have to go far but do yourself a favor and take a break from that busy work week and use the weekend to unwind, take a brisk walk and discover how beautiful nature is. . . That’s exactly what I’ll be doing this weekend. A little weekend getaway and my first solo trip of 2018. 🤗 . . . . . . #czechrepublic #visitcz #bohemianswitzerland #likeamountaingirl #girlswholovenature #naturegirl #bluemountains #mountaingirls outdoorwoman #girlsdoloveoutdoors #shetravels #girlsabroad #womenwhotravel #thediscoverer #travelgirlsgo #girlsthatwander #iamtb #thewanderingtourist #nomadgirls #theglobalgirls #travelcollectively #globalpathfinders #instatravel #neverstopexploring #travelmoreworryless #lifewelltravelled #naturephotography #naturebeauty #woman_in_landscape

Sneak peak. There's tons of stray animals all over Cuba, in Havana we had a dog follow us for the longest time while we were venturing out to organize a car that fit 7 people (which took a while). Captured this snapshot of this cute little munchkin at the Tobacco farm in the Viñales Valley. Picture taken by the incredibly talented: @mindycoppo - who eventually got to pet the kitten :)
This little sailboat reminded me of one of my favourite quotes : “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. “ I one hundred percent support the sentiment behind this quote but it is so often misattributed. Did you know that it wasn’t actually Mark Twain who said this? H Jackson Brown’s mother is the one who actually said it, in a letter she’d written to her children. . . Solid advice, mom. Solid advice. . . . #australia #portelliot #seesouthaustralia #australiagram #quotestagram #quote #hjacksonbrownjr #sailaway #explore #dream #discover #girlswanderlust #womenwhoexplore #sheisnotlost #citizenfemme #dametraveler #passportcollective #thetravellingfriends #ladiesgoneglobal #thetravellerwomen #girlsthatwander #blueskydestinations #girlvsglobe #letsgoeverywhere #globelletravels #wearetravelgirls #backpackerstory #backpackaustralia #momadvice #momknowsbest
The Overland originally started out as the Intercolonial Express back in 1887 and today is still going strong between Melbourne and Adelaide, transporting people across 828km of Australian countryside. The train itself is almost 200m long, and I was kind of surprised by how many people seem to make the journey instead of flying. The trip is meant to take about 10.5 hours, and my friends thought I as nuts to want to do this, but I wanted the “unique” experience of train travel instead of getting on a plane. About 3 hours in, looking out over earth flatter than I’d ever seen back home in Saskatchewan, I began to question my reasoning, and 11 hours in, when we were stopped on the tracks waiting for a fallen tree to be removed from our path, I knew I was glad that I had done this, but I also knew that I would never take a train between these two cities again. . . You might think I’d had enough of trains, after reading my last two posts, but it isn’t true. I haven’t written off the idea of taking the other train services operated by Great Southern Rail, The Ghan from Darwin to Adelaide, or the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Perth. . . Have you ever taken either of these journeys? What advice do you have for passing time on multi-day train trips? . . . #theoverland #melbourne #adelaide #australia #visitvictoria #seesouthaustralia #traintravel #travelgram #adventure #instatravel #instapassport #sheisnotlost #girlswanderlust #passionpassport #passportcollective #womenwhoexplore #globelletravels #girldiscoverers #citizenfemme #dametraveler #ladiesgoneglobal #explore #newviews #newexperiences #flatlander #canadianabroad #journeybeyond

Many people wonder why I love Munich and Bavaria so much. It’s a very special place to me. A place that opened my eyes as a child and opened the doors to a bigger world and brighter opportunities. I was born in Lithuania, a very small country of 3 million people (there’s more people in London than in the whole country of Lithuania... WOW, I KNOW), where opportunities and dreams were quite small and as a young country who'd just separated from Soviet Union at the time, it did not have much to show or to offer. Munich showed me another perspective of people’s lives. It introduced me to ambition, it showed me what hard work can do and how people went from nada to something very inspiring. Dreaming and creating. That’s what Munich has given me and that’s why I will always be grateful for that. What city inspired you to dream & create? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #enroutewithakvile

Are we having fun yet? . . . Originally I was so excited to find out you could travel by train across this country. Until I realized how long it takes to get anywhere. 😕 it is not at all like Europe where you jump in a train and 2 hours later you’re in a new country. Here, 2 hours into the journey and you haven’t even entered a new state. . . So often on social media we see all the good parts of travel. The exciting locations, beautiful views, and friendly people. But there’s also the 12 hour train rides, the cancelled flights, and the days you’d rather just stay in bed. At the end of the day though, it’s all worth it, isn’t it? . . . #realtalk #longdays #travelgram #selfie #trains #allworthit #girlswanderlust #womenwhoexplore #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #citizenfemme #explore #getoutdoors #arewethereyet #arewehavingfunyet #girlslovetravel #ladiesgoneglobal #backpackerlife #adventuretravel #femmetravel #solotravel #travelgram #instapassport #passionpassport #australia #australiagram #countryroads #thetravellerwomen
⋆ BEAUTY AT THE MOSQUE 3/3 ⋆ At the Sheikh Zayed Mosque I met this beauty and was very happy that she allowed me to take this picture of her. 👏 Lisa is a nurse in Abu Dhabi. 👩‍⚕️She moved there from the UK a couple of days ago. I love how the #UAE is a peaceful mixture of all nations and cultures. Cultural diversity is a huge thing in the UAE and can be felt in every corner. And this is how it should be on our planet. 💫 ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ #abudhabi #visitabudhabi #girlswanderlust #girlslovetravel #girlsloveadventure #travelawesome #sheikhzayedmosque #passportcollective #travelstyle #worldtravelescape #travelnow #shetravels #shewhowanders #girlstravel #grandmosque #travelmoreworryless #ladiesgoneglobal #travelfemme #dametraveler #sheisnotlost

Yesterdays IG post had so many people proclaiming love for koalas that I thought I’d follow it up with an actual koala 🐨. If this doesn’t scream Jenn’s spirit animal, then I don’t know what does! . . Hot tip: the road to the Cape Otway Lighthouse is one of the best places I’ve found for seeing koalas in their natural habitat. Drivers, keep an eye on the road, they sometimes tumble out of trees while sleeping; passengers, keep your eyes peeled high, they’re almost always as far up the tree as they can get. . . What do you consider your spirit animal?

⋆ BEAUTY AT THE MOSQUE 1/3 ⋆ When I saw her taking pictures together with her friend I just had to ask whether I can take one or two pictures of them. Luckily they said yes.

You guys are all really awesome and I love having your support all across IG. So tonight I’d like to direct your attention to my newly refurbished and relaunched blog. 📝 She’s over at www.thecountryjumper.com and you should totally check her out. 👀 I’m super open to your feedback and would love any ideas, thoughts, comments or critiques. 👂🏽 Thanks IG fam XOXO 😘 P.S. This is a photo of Tybee Island outside of Savannah, which I talk about in my newest Savannah posts!
A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles ❤️ I am beyond grateful to have found part of my travel family within the first couple of weeks of solo traveling. People that made Cuba, an already breathtaking place by itself, an unforgettable experience. We took this picture after getting matching friendship bracelets at an artisan market in Viñales.
I’m constantly on the lookout for koalas in Australia. I’m obsessed with them. Maybe because they’re so different from anything we had back home in Canada; maybe because they’re basically real life teddy bears, but probably it’s because I think they’re my spirit animal. (Sleeping and eating are two of my favourite activities, after all) . In the state of Victoria they are relatively common, but I didn’t realize their habitat was pretty limited in the rest of the country. Those poor people in WA never get to see one outside of a zoo. 🐨 . . . #visitvictoria #melbourne #visitmelbourne #roadtrip #mountmacedon #australia #wanderaustralia #seeaustralia #visitaustralia #passportcollective #travelgram #instatravel #instapassport #passionpassport #girlswanderlust #sheisnotlost #womenwhoexplore #skyscannerelite #dametraveler #citizenfemme #globelletravels #girldiscoverers #ladiesgoneglobal #girlslovetravel #passportcollective #native #wildlife #koala #obsession #spiritanimal
