Storefront in Daikanyama. Known as the Brooklyn of Tokyo it was one of our favorite neighborhoods. With it's laid back vibe, full of cafes and shops, you'd never believe it was only a fifteen minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Shibuya. 💚✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #citywalk #wanderlust #designinspiration #magical #bloggerlife #tokyoview #instapassport #travelmore #visittokyo #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #daikanyama #tokyo #japantravel
Wandering through historic Gion, Kyoto's former geisha district. It's quite common to see visitors walking around Kyoto dressed in kimono and you will see several shops that advertise renting them as well as offering hair and make up services. 👘✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #kimono #magical #bloggerlife #visitkyoto #instapassport #travelmore #japanesegarden #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #gion #kyoto #japantravel
How amazing is the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto? Straight out of a fairytale! We loved Japan, but we're in Fiji now, and it's been wonderful sinking into Island time. Had a beautiful walk on the beach at sunrise this morning (head on over to my stories if you'd like to see)✨💫 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #goldenpavilion #magical #bloggerlife #visitkyoto #instapassport #travelmore #japanesegarden #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #kinkakuji #kyoto #japantravel
Hey guys, new post on the blog, 8 Can't Miss Dishes In Japan, link in profile! Japan has inarguably one of the best food cultures in the world, but there are so many incredible dishes to try when you visit, it can feel overwhelming figuring out where to start.

From melt in your mouth Kobe beef to to melt your face off ramen, here are our 8 Can’t Miss Dishes In Japan, and where you can try them. 🍣🍱🍜❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #philosphersdusk #tbt #bloggerlife #kyoto #instapassport #travelmore #deliciousfoods #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #japanesefoodlover #japanesefoods #japantravel
The Philospher's Walk, one of the best places in Kyoto to see cherry blossoms in Spring, but a beautiful place for a walk at any time of year. It's been quiet over here the last few days as we've been settling into the new rhythm and time change in Fiji which has been amazing so far (as I've been sharing in my stories), but plenty of great content coming this week! 💚✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #philosphersdusk #dusk #bloggerlife #visitkyoto #instapassport #travelmore #japanesegarden #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #philosopherspath #kyoto #japantravel
Sun setting over Kyoto from the Silver Pavilion. We still have much to share of our travels in Japan over the coming weeks, but tomorrow night we depart for the sun and the sand of Fiji. We loved our time in this amazing country and definitely look forward to returning some day soon as there is still so much to see! ❤️✨🇯🇵 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #silverpavilion #sunset #bloggerlife #visitkyoto #instapassport #travelmore #japanesegarden #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #ginkakuji #kyoto #japantravel
New post is live on the blog, 36 Hours in Kyoto, link in profile! In addition to all the must see spots doable in a short amount of time (including the iconic Fushimi Inari torii gates pictured here) I'm also challenging myself to share more of our personal journey as well as our actual one. Starting today there will be more personal anecdotes, and this post includes a bit about the inevitable friction and annoyance that happens when two people spend 24/7 together for months on end while sharing tiny Japanese hotel rooms. 🙈 Sometimes a little time apart is necessary to stay in like the one you love! ❤️✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #tbt #toriigates #bloggerlife #visitkyoto #instapassport #travelmore #torii #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #fushimiinari #kyoto #japantravel
Ever since the news of the Weinstein scandal and all the subsequent airing of Hollywood’s dirty laundry, I’ve known I’d have to contribute my piece as well about my own experience with dealing with and overcoming sexism in Hollywood. Everything about the news the past few weeks is integral to my own experience, and is a large part of my book. It’s stuff I’ve been thinking about and writing about for over two years now, so you’d think I’d know exactly what I’d want to say or write, but it’s been weeks now and I’m still struggling to find the words. It feels like too big a subject to crystalize into one short article. Nevertheless, here are some of my thoughts and experiences, link in profile. ❤️✨ #metoo . . . . . . . . . . . . . #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #beautifulmatters #darlingescapes #dametraveler #citizenfemme #sheisnotlost #shetravelz #wearetravelgirls #thetravelwomen #travelfemme #girlsborntotravel #girldiscoverers #girlgettersglobal #girlsaroundtheworld #travelgirlsgo #ladiesgoneglobal #explorerbabes #girlslovetravel #girlswanderlust #traveldeeper #takemethere #welltravelled #alwaysgo #iamatraveler #okayama #visitjapan #japan #travelmore
Kurokawa Onsen. The most charming out of the way village in Japan with hot spring hopping and off the charts scenic landscape. Definitely consider a visit on your next trip to Japan! (Also, we didn't have time, but there's a famous artisan pottery village nearby which you can visit as a day trip outing). For more info, check out Thursday's blog post, link in profile. 💚✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #pursuepretty #instagood #bloggerlife #quaint #hotsprings #instapassport #travelmore #ryokan #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #onsen #kurokawaonsen
Only a few days into our time in Japan and Anthony and I threw ourselves in the deep end of cultural immersion with a two night stay at Ryokan Sanga in Kurokawa Onsen. A ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn, and they can be found all over Japan. An onsen is a Japanese hot spring resort. Put the two together and you’ve got a wonderful and unique experience you won’t soon forget. Your trip to Japan truly won’t be complete if this isn’t included in your itinerary.

When staying at a ryokan that's also an onsen, you may not have an actual shower or bath in your room! Instead you will be expected to do all your bathing in the communal hot springs. It is usually possible, however, to reserve "family" or kashikiri in advance if you'd like some privacy. Look out for our post with all the rest of our tips coming tomorrow! 💙✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #wanderlustwednesday #instagood #bloggerlife #enchantedforest #noregrets #instapassport #travelmore #ryokan #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #onsen #kurokawaonsen
Sweeping views of the Japanese countryside surrounding Kurokawa Onsen where we spent two wonderful days feasting and bathing in hot springs at a ryokan. If you want a unique cultural immersion while in Japan, staying at a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) is a must. Will be sharing more on that subject throughout the next few days! ❤️✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #traveltuesday #instagood #bloggerlife #enchantedforest #noregrets #instapassport #travelmore #pursuepretty #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #visitjapan #japan #dreamchaser #kurokawaonsen
New blog post for Life Lesson Monday! It's hard to admit to yourself and everyone you know when a dream you dearly wanted no longer holds the same appeal. When that happens it's easy to berate yourself for making a huge mistake. For thinking you wasted time and resources on a thing that turned out to not be the thing. The thing to make you happy. But I don't think it's ever a mistake or a waste of time to chase your dreams, even when it doesn't work out the way you hoped.

New blog post for Travel Thursday! We recently had a quick 24 hour stopover in Seoul and we both knew exactly what we wanted to do with that short time– stuff our faces with ALL the BBQ. In our research we came across Korea Food Tours. These are the guys that took care of Anthony Bourdain and his crew when they did their Parts Unknown episode in Seoul, and if we figured if it was good enough for Bourdain it would be good enough for us. Get the full post below for all the deets of our Ultimate Korean BBQ Night Out. ❤️🔥😋 @zenkimchi . . . . . . . . . . . #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #welltraveled #alwaysgo #darlingescapes #bestvacations #beautifulmatters #worlderlust #liveauthentic #travelblog #natgeo #iamatraveler #landscapephotography #wanderlust #koreanfood #instagood #bloggerlife #foodporn #instafood #instapassport #travelmore #yum #tlpicks #traveldeeper #takemethere #koreanbbq #korea #foodtour #seoul
New post for Life Lesson Monday, Taking Responsibility For Your Life: You can only blame your parents for so long. After a certain age (I say 25), you are the only one responsible for your choices. When I say you must take responsibility for your life, I hope you don’t take it the wrong way. I’m in no way trying diminish the pain you may have experienced growing up, but I truly believe that if you wish to live your best life, you must find the grace within yourself to forgive and let go of past wrongs. For your own sake and no one else's.

The Avatar Mountains in Zhangjiajie National Park. Unfortunately on the day we went the surreal pillars were shrouded in mist, so we weren't able to see as much from the top as we would have hoped. There are two ways to get to the viewpoint-- you can either take the stairs about an hour to the top or take the tallest fastest elevator in the world up the side of one of these pillars.

This photo is from when we were walking the Golden Whip Stream Path in Zhangjiajie National Park in China a week or so ago where they shot the film Avatar-- if it's not on your bucket list it definitely should be!
