Checking out a new workspace, and hunting for the space with the best coffee ☕ thanks to @getcroissant.

Nusa Penida was unbelievable. The roads are insane though. Glad we had a driver and didn't just rent a scooter, Kris would have bounced me off the back of that thing so fast.
So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
But I'll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is okay
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry

Finally managed to be around for the sunset. You'd think it'd be easier to get than the sunrise, but for some reason we just kept missing it.
Always interesting how different cultures can influence each other. Surprised to find some Greek architecture 🇬🇷 in the middle of Tennessee 🇺🇲
Our last stop in Sri Lanka was a small village near Polonnaruwa. And it was the best way to end our time in Sri Lanka, cycling past beautiful countryside like this 🚲🌴

After a fun day spotting elephants, we stopped by this huge lake on our way back to watch this gorgeous sunset 🌅😍
And we had the perfect view from the back of our safari jeep! 🧡🧡

Time to leave the island! The Island of so many things! The island with probably the most gorgeous quiet christal clear water I have ever seen ( and I’ve seen some really amazing places) the Island where my Mexican adventure started really relaxt. The island where you get to known everyone after a view days. They Island where everyone drives around in these golf carts. The island with good vibes en people that are up for having fun! Also the island that is probably changing a bit to fast.. the beach seems to be loved by a bit to many people now.. and I understand why..
I was supposed to stay 3 nights but stayed 6.. also due to getting really ill yesterday after biking around the whole island.. yes, thats also a part of traveling.💕 Thank you Isla Mujeres, on to the next adventure : Tulum!

Sandbank shenanigans in the Maldives 😜 more photos and our story from this day (including my cartwheel accident and craig falling out a palm tree) are up on the blog, click link in our profile for a gander.
Our first blog about our budget trip to the Maldives has just been added, click link in our profile to see what we thought of the local island of Dharavandhoo 🌴🍉
Thanks for fueling my obsession. 💜

We spent about 10 days in Ella, Sri Lanka...mainly relaxing, eating and planning our next adventures but also doing some pretty neat hikes so if you want to read about the hikes and sights of this hill country town and see more photos then click the link in our profile 🕺🏽
So I can safely say it's totally possible to travel the Maldives on a budget. Our hotels (very nice rooms with ensuite and breakfast included) cost between $30 to $50 a night. Transport fees are the biggest cost but if you have the time/flexibility then the local ferries were a bargain and instead of a $50 speedboat ticket it only cost $3.50. We're based in Germany this month so I'll be catching up on blogs including our tips for budget travel in the Maldives 👌🏽

Long term followers on here will know of my Olympic level cartwheel skills. I fucked up here though, something that every professional athlete goes through I'm sure. I made a split decision to cartwheel in the opposite direction - it didn't work (if you can cartwheel in both directions let me know if it's possible). I ended up doing an awkward handstand with sideways momentum and I fell with such a hard thud that I nearly caused a tsunami. The next day Craig fell from a palm tree into the sea and cut his arm. So with his purple and red wrist and my body still aching from my fall, Craig turned to me and said "we're not young anymore Lauren"...Fuck you Craig, you old fart 😜😏
As I have evolved my focus and interests have changed, and I felt like it was time for a new name, so keeping it short and sweet you can now find me online as @ShanelSocial
This is Feridhoo Island, the third local island we visited in the Maldives. We had some pretty bad weather here but the sun also made an appearance and the beach only had 4 other people on it 😮
