Being passive earns you a life you’re settling for. A life you may never have really wanted. A life that isn’t truly what your dreams are made of.
So stop saying “yes” and “ok” by default and ask yourself: What do you really want?
Totally cool with hearing more “fuck off”s... at least we’d all be being true to ourselves 🙌🏼
I hesitated before jumping into this natural pool. The water was a milky blue colour from minerals which meant it got this fab colour, but it wasn’t clear. I hate jumping into the unknown, not knowing what lurks beneath. And just before I plucked up the courage Craig said, “there’s a snake!”. It was 2m long and swimming along the surface of the pool below us 🙈 I searched our pool and didn’t spot any snakes so I nervously took the plunge, touched the gravelly floor and felt safe.
TUK TUUUUK! We went on a 120km roadtrip to see some incredible blue waterfalls in this badboy. Such a fun day out!
Expecto escape-o! We escaped Harry Potter - Dumbledore’s Quest.
Gardens by the Bay, Singapore. 🌃 Such a forward thinking idea- creating these gardens so animals and plants can have somewhere safe to thrive in in the city. Finally got round to writing a blog article on the country! Link in biooooo 🌃🌃🌃
A one hour boat ride along the Irrawaddy River led us to this magical spot.
For some reason, travel makes me feel like my whole self. When I’m home.. I seem to tone myself down. Hold back. Feel like I can’t fully be myself. I’m not sure why... But when I’m in another country... I’m more confident. Happier. More adventurous. More forward. I speak my mind and I take more risks.
Weird. Anyway. I need to book some flights ✈️🤣 Anyone else feel this way? ♥️🗺
Another one from the insane colours of the Philippines 🌴 one of the most naturally beautiful places I’ve ever been 😍
I change my hair colour like the wind changes. 🍁⠀
Aaaand a lot of other things too. ⠀
Change is almost my norm. ⠀
Hair colour 💇🏻♀️ Location 🏡 Job or biz direction 👩🏻💻 Next travel destination ✈️ Who the fuck knows where life is taking us? ⠀
I have some ideas, but I’ll probably change my mind, too.⠀
Having a set plan for my life ain’t for me. ⠀
And it’s really not all that necessary 🤷🏻♀️⠀
What do you think, peeps? ⠀

Boating in Bohol, Philippines. Link in bio for blog 🛶🌿🌴🍃
While we’re here, does anyone else have issues accessing photos automatically saved to iCloud to save memory? I’m finding it a nightmare cos I can never load any photos when I want to! It just tells me to try again later. (First world problem I know)🤯😠📱
This moody sunset was taken at White Beach in Boracay in the Philippines. 🌄🌄🌄 .
The last few evenings I have been having problems accessing my photos because iCloud won’t load them. This is the first time I’ve been able to!! First world problems I know but still quite annoying! 😠 ... and breeeathe
Keeping it on the theme of the Philippines- I was lucky enough to receive some some puppy kisses on an island in Palawan 🐶❤️
I’m not a fan of small talk. ⠀
It feels unimportant, boring, insignificant of our bigger life’s purpose. 💫⠀
I love making friends who want to talk about intuition, spirituality, politics, our life’s purpose, what it means to be truly happy, alternative lifestyles, wellness, social issues, travel, mental health, sex, social stigmas / taboos, psychology, anything that’s fucking deep and consists of more than “how’s the fam?”, or “what are you up to this weekend?”. ⠀
I’m not afraid to be vulnerable, and neither should you. ⠀
I’d rather have only a few friends who I can talk to about this stuff, than a lot who only care about how my week is going and if I like my job. #nahfam

We’ve just finished up 9 days on Koh Chang Island and time has flown by. It’s the first time in all of our travels that we’ve just been beach bums and it was pretty damn nice! We spent a couple days on the south of the island and the rest of our time at Lonely Beach in these amazing bungalows @beachjunglehostel
The owners had an adorable puppy, pool table and table tennis so when we weren’t basking in the sun we were having fun at the hostel...maybe we need to have normal holidays like this more often!
My dive buddy! 🐢 I am a bit obsessed with sea turtles, they’re one of my favourite animals and I get sooo excited when I see them when diving! Especially when they get this close ❤️🐢🌊
Spotted this little guy and his mum on the side of the road in Siem Reap, Cambodia.🐒 Obviously has to stop for a closer look- she wasn’t fazed at all! 😍Read more on Cambodia - link in my bio 📲
This place wasn’t actually somewhere we had planned to go in Cambodia. We thought we had booked a fast boat from Sihanoukville straight to Koh Rong so we could get there early to secure some accommodation on the island. Turns out we had ended up with a ticket for an all-day snorkelling trip! However when this place is your first stop you can’t stay annoyed for long 😍🏝📍Koh Rong Sanloem in Cambodia.
Another photo from an amazing three days spent exploring the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Rather than popping a different blog article in my bio everyday I’m sticking with one country for a few days! So have a read of Cambodiaaaa - link in bio 📝📷🗺👣🌎
This photo was taken just after sunrise at Angkor Wat, Cambodia a few years ago. We managed to find a quiet spot to sit in the temple away from the crowds and it was the most peaceful, quiet, serene places I’ve ever been. 🌄🌄🌄
After 8 months exploring mountainous countries its damn good to be on a tropical island again.
Some of our favourite snaps from the Stans - the dramatic scenery and smiley locals 💕
Have you heard the expression "hope for the best, but plan for the worst?" Well....that's the basis for today's #traveltip
I know when packing for vacation, you're thinking about coordinating outfits for occassions, color schemes, remembering your toothbrush, your passport, baggage weight, and a million other things.....but what you're typically NOT thinking of are the little annoyances that could occur that would make your vacation a little less fun....if you weren't prepared for it ▫️
Create a little grab-and-go First Aid kit that you keep stored in your luggage. Items that I recommend are aspirin/pain relief tablets, alcohol pads, allergy tablets, stomach relief tablets, single use hydrocortisone packets, single use antibiotic ointment packets, and tweezers. ▫️
You don't have to pack full bottles, just a little bit of the basics to get you by until you can get to a pharmacy if needed.
Hey, it's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
Safe and happy travels!

After almost two months in Central Asia, we're packing our backpacks and flying to Thailand. We need some relax time on an island and a change of cuisine!! Central Asia was pretty tiring; 40 degree heat is like standing next to a pizza oven, and hiking at over 3000m is damn right exhausting. So it's definitely taken it's toll on us, but we're happy we came. The people are some of the friendliest in the world, we got to stay in some wonderful yurt camps, ride horses, drive along the Pamir highway and walk amongst the colourful mosaic buildings of the silk road. So now our plan is a couple of months in Thailand, Myanmar, Philippines and Sri Lanka before our return to Norway for those dreamy northern lights.
Beautiful day in this beautiful city.
We have just arrived in Uzbekistan but our final two days in Tajikistan were spent in the mountains enjoying the pristine lakes, rivers and waterfalls 🙌🏼
Smoke started to clear enough for some more beautiful views at Solitude this morning.
Newlyweds at the newest newlyweds wedding 💗 Congratulations (not so) little brother Eric & Katie! What a beautiful wedding. I’m so lucky to have been a part of it. Thank you Becky @passagestudios
for the lovely shot!
Mountain weddings & alabaster warrior princesses.
These views are just the worst.
Scrambled up a wall to enjoy the views. Smokey but still beautiful. ⛰
Morning hike through Ferguson Canyon with husband, brother, sister-in-law & photographer
