My life has changed so much in these last few weeks, my last trip to Miami turned into an opportunity to chase a dream I've had for quite sometime. Something I have always dreamed of is being near to the ocean, I knew I would one day, but I didn't realize it would happen over the course of two weeks.
Life has been very busy lately, from a new career , traveling, moving, saying bye to my amazing friends & family celebrating my grandmothers's life, and at the same time maintaining a feeling of trust; that in fact, this is the right choice.
I've always known that you pay a price when you chase a dream..whether that is giving up your comforts, your fears, time, money, etc. and knowing that you must tryst yourself along the journey <3
There is a lot to be said about Miami, but I have always been in love with this place. It's a mad, crazy, free, and wild place, but I think it's the right start for me.
I love waking up each day not knowing where it will lead me, but trusting that a positive thought, a thankful heart, and the ability to appreciate each experience with a with an openness will get me through whatever it may be.
Here, you see my friend Lydia trusting and practicing what makes her happy each day. We had a blast discovering and experiencing Miami, visiting the beaches, and just creating memories as they came along. It's worth cherishing the people you have around you, and the ability to open up your heart to welcome others in. Lydia and I brushed by each other, a very whimsical occurrence turned into a day of riding a yacht across the stretch of Miami, photoshoot, laying out on the beach, and lots of laughing.
I hope you follow whatever it is that calls you <3 I would love to hear your thoughts. I've recently been hearing from people about their desires to travel and see new places. Always feel free to reach out to me, I love hearing your stories.
I have been planning a trip to Iceland for over a decade now, it's actually going to happen! I have written it down as a goal for 2017 and there is no stopping. I was inspired years a go by one of my favorite instrumental bands "Sigur Ros" after viewing their documentary I felt a sense of connection. I felt a connection to nature and a longing for simplicity. I love how much of the Icelandic life is influenced by nature. From the language to music, food, culture, and even down to the basics of bathing. I appreciate this so much from people.
I hope you take sometime to view this video, and really see what I mean.
I am planning on making the trip either in April or May, I typically like to go to destinations in off season--it makes it much more accommodating and price friendly! I have several people interested in wanting to come, but I thought I would open it up to others. I know there are plenty of friends out there who have a similar desire.
Not seeking anything fancy, I like to typically immerse myself into a culture with little expectation of what is supposed to happen. I am not an agenda type of person, and often when I am put under pressure to do things by the hour or clock, I lose interest. I am hoping to find some people who are ready to explore and take in the experience for what it is. This may mean hostels, feeling uncomfortable with strangers who will turn into life long friends, and potential nights that turn into days because you love life too much to fall asleep. This may mean you may buy food from the local market and not dine in the touristy restaurants, this means you may learn a sentence or two of the mother tongue, this means that you may not get a picture with that statue that you were hoping for, this means you live life to the fullest in your own way.
If you're up for the adventure I ask you to send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, please let me know more about you and where you have traveled! We can take it from there.
Okay, so if you ever have the opportunity to spend sometime in Europe, I highly encourage Prague! I am so glad we decided to spontaneously take the trip. We only spent a few nights in Prague, but OH MY! It's a city filled with so much history and it is rich in culture! I swear I felt like I was in a Disney film being surrounded by all the castles and churches, and there is so much color. I love a place that feels enchanted. By far, Prague sticks out in my memory. It is really really a friendly place, and the people there are just so nice. I also loved Prague because it made me feel like I was rich...even though I definitely was not. I mean, like I had duck for lunch! We met some great people while we were in Prague, and they are still our friend 'til this day. I can honestly say we all had such a connection from the kick off of our first conversation. It is thanks to them that we were able to experience so much of the country's culture. I swear, I hate getting into the tourist traps, I always know I am missing out on something. Like for instance, if you're not a native or you didn't speak to a native...would you know what the heck Cat hats are? Probably not, and I'm not going to give it away! Go see for yourself. Have you been to Prague? And if you have what did you love about it? Enjoy this little recap and please share! Visit my YouTube channel by clicking the button below to stay up to date on my videos.

Renting a bike in Paris was one of the best ways to go about seeing the beautiful city! I highly encourage you to do the same. We shared so many great memories, and some silly moments just lounging and tumbling around on the terrace. It's hard to believe it's already been over a year. Paris makes for a nice backdrop ;) and there is plenty to see. Bikes are easy to get around with, and you don't have to deal with public transportation, which can be aggravating! I hope you enjoy this video. I'll be sharing more of these to come with different cities I have visited. Any unique suggestions for new destinations? Let me know your thoughts. Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to stay updated! I look forward to making more of these :) <3
