I’ve been in Sri Lanka for a week now, but almost everyday I have been meeting the most interesting & generous people. They helped me seek out the beauty. You know, the natural places that travelers flock to Sri Lanka for. Beaches, mountains, animal safaris, vast landscapes. Each time I turn my head, I’m reminded about how I am a part of a whole. We humans are NOT separate from nature nor are we above it. Nature isn’t just in your backyard, we ARE nature. Sri Lanka has reiterated this understanding for me that we are all connected & more the same than we are different. It’s a heart-shattering, beautiful planet & I’m so happy to be a part of it. ✱︎

Sometimes, you just need a break. In a beautiful place. Alone. To figure everything out.
Thank you Mama Mary for always granting my prayers. From my college days up to now, you never fail me.
21-hour flight since I left Manila and long layover (still) ahead... this is what you do at the airport when connecting through a trip - > duty free spotting, timelapsing, eating ... i’m jetlagged! #lifewelltraveled#wearetravelgirls
“Land of extremes. Land of contrasts. Land of surprises. Land of contradictions. A land that is never to be fully understood but always to be loved by sons and daughters sprung from such a diversity of origins, animated by such a diversity of motives and ideals, that generations must pass before they can ever fully understand each other. That is Arizona.” -Arizona: A State Guide, compiled by Workers of the Writers' Program of the Work Projects Administration in the State of Arizona, 1940
That was the coolest part of Phoenix, I think. You easily went through a big city center with tall skyscrapers, to suburbs, to having views of mountains in a short drive. We hiked up a 2707’ mountain to the peak, to a view of mountains and building-packed land. Such a interesting contrast!

Standing at the busiest interesction in Buenos Aires on my birthday this past December helped me realize that it is the experiences and memories that make up who I am and who I will become. So, I hope to receive the gift of travelling for my future birthdays. I want to go to Mexico City next! I’ve only been to Mexico for their famous resorts but it is time to experience their culture. #pptakeflight
It's a rainy day here in Sydney. Some people see it as a wasted summer Sunday afternoon, we see it as an opportunity! So, we're brushing up on our pierogi skills. This recipe holds a special place in our hearts, and when you enter our competition you're in the running to add it to your collection! Did someone say late lunch?! 🍴#travelepicure#luxurytravel#familyrecipe#lovepoland#pierogiruskie#polishcuisine
Breakfast in Singapore doesn’t just feed the eye but also my stomach and my heart 💜 Happy with the Common Man Fluffy Pancakes (SGD21) with caramelized bananas, walnuts, salted caramel sauce, nut crumble and berry coulis but the highlight is definitely their coffee here! My flat white was really good!
