Celebrating milestones 🥂 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• When people ask how I “got here,” it’s hard to give a concise answer— because I am not an overnight success. I’ve been sharing my life on IG for 7 years now. In the early days, I shared pictures of very average looking food, me sleeping on airport floors, and all of those in-between and less glamorous moments of travel (with really intense filters, might I add). A lot has changed on IG over the years. While a lot of us feel very passionately about the evolution of this platform, I remain grateful for the community it has brought me. This journey has never been about numbers. I see your names in the comments and respond to every one of you in my DMs. I’ve even met some of my closest friends through this platform. I’ll be honest, to now have 500k people along on this journey with me is both thrilling and terrifying. It’s like performing the halftime show and singing off-key, but everyone cheering for you regardless (probably a terrible analogy... but further proves my point). Thank you for supporting me along this crazy adventure and for being a part of this incredible travel community. Cheers-ing with some @durbanvillehills bubbles at my favorite sunset spot in Cape Town! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #capetown #tablemountain #500k #cheers #sunset #durbanvillehills
Paradise Found 🌴💙🐠 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• You may have noticed that I’ve been sharing more video content here. I film on every one of my trips, but the amount of work that goes into creating videos (and the photos you see here on IG) can become overwhelming. I’ve been digging through the archives to bring new weekly videos to my YouTube channel. If you aren’t subscribed, please check it out and let me know what you think! 💙 LINK IN BIO 💙 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• This trip was probably one of my top EVER and I was lucky enough to explore this beautiful destination with @travisburkephotography @chelseakauai @laurlucore and @lifeandmylens ! Thanks to @hlanga_vena for this amazing edit! #frenchpolynesia #rangiroa #tahiti #tahaa #tropical #paradise #beautifuldestinations @beautifuldestinations @tahititourisme #lovetahiti

Let go and reconnect 🌲 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I spent a few days this past summer exploring Québec to disconnect from the every day hustle. It was amazing to see the beauty of this destination, and to have so many diverse experiences with @tourismeQu ébec in just a few days. I camped lakeside, went zip lining through the forest, tried delicious gourmet specialties (including poutine of course!), and relaxed at a floating spa that was once an operating ferry boat. There's so much to be explored in and just outside of the city. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 🌿 LINK IN BIO TO LEARN MORE 🌿 #QuebecOriginal

Tea time ☕️🍃🕓 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Finally visited the @belmondmountnelsonhotel in #CapeTown ! This iconic hotel was painted pink 100 years ago, and is a mix of old Hollywood glamour and colonial grandeur! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mtnelson #fujifilmx_us #southafrica #teatime #tbapresets
That’s a wrap on @TBAescapes 2nd South Africa Photography Tour with @fujifilmx_us ! 📷 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• For the last 9 days, I’ve been showing an incredible group of women around some of my favorite spots in South Africa! We dug deep into Cape Town— watched the sunset from Clifton Beach, hiked to the top of Lion’s Head, experienced aerial views of the coastline from a helicopter, explored the colorful neighborhood of Bo-Kaap, ate our hearts out at the Old Biscuit Mill, and took a tour around the street art of Woodstock. We experienced a Big 5 Safari at @gondwanagr — complete with hippos, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and zebras! And we sipped our way through the Cape Winelands— indulging in fancy wine pairings and farm-to-table food at @boschendal wine farm. It was an absolute blast and I’m so fortunate to have shared the experience with such a wonderful group of women. Huge shout out to @meyercapetown , @tailsofamermaid and @laurlucore for being incredible hosts! I can’t wait to welcome our next group next week!

Colorful Cape Town 💚💗💙 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I’ve never been able to visit #BoKaap without being surrounded by people and cars. Except for today— we felt like we had the entire neighborhood to ourselves (swipe right to see what I mean!) Successful Sunday on Day 2 of @TBAescapes South Africa Photography Tour! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Edited with @tbapresets | #capetown #tbaescapes #southafrica #tbapresets
