Don’t give life to thoughts that don’t serve you. The mind is a battlefield and if you don’t protect and guard your senses they will control you. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a rough few weeks mentally and it’s time to take back control of my thoughts. Reading daily, living in expectation and saying affirmations always realigns my thoughts and changes my attitude.
I am more than enough, I have everything I need to create the life I desire and there are amazing things happening in my life right now.
Exploring the Byzantine ruins of Mystras. Located on Mt. Taygetos it is the early inhabitants of this city that later formed Ancient Sparta. Definitely worth checking out and the hikes around the ruins are amazing! Also if you’re the dreamboat in the photo or know who it is.....call me 🤙🏼😏
Go ahead and find yourself in any of the books there. You will find someone at least, someone who will be relatable. The outside world is chaotic I know, and see I got you into peace. They all may call you a fool and this an imaginary deal, but love it’s on you now. On you to be anyone and anything. Welcome to the world of mystery!!
Bridges of Shikoku! This is one of the many stunning bridges across the Yoshino River. We pass several on our drive to Ikeda, and just had to stop for a photo.

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life? ✨
To every creative out there, be a photographer, a painter, a writer, a muscician, a dancer... to the 9-5’ers who then come home and start working as soon as their computer is loaded. To the ones cancelling dinner to finish a project, to the ones who sit on the bus en route to a job that pays your bills scribbling notes down in a scrappy sketchbook. To the ones watching YouTube tutorials over and over, reading blogs and researching. To the ones constantly criticising their own work and striving to be better next time. To the ones spending time at their digital devices building platforms to showcase your goods yet being called anti-social. I hear you, I’m with you. Embrace your passion & show it to the world. Visualise it, write it down, manifest it. You got this 💪🏻
Happy Sunday from a very instagramable Moscow 🌺! Isn’t this the best time of the year? When summer has just arrived and you have 3 months of sun & fun ahead! I am currently planning my summer vacay and need some inspiration! Do you have any gems in Southern Europe that I can not miss? As always, I will give some love back in my stories to my three favorite accounts ✨!
NamaSLAY from India, and sorry not saree for the endless pun potential 🇮🇳🤷🏾 The second most populated country in the world needs no introduction, because you’ve read her story and sang her song.
The spectrum of life exists in all forms here, as ornamental architecture is juxtaposed with extreme poverty as most will turn a blind eye to.
But you must take this country in doses, because she overwhelms, humbles, and teaches every day.
There are no words that’ll prepare you for the absolute assault of the senses you’ll experience in India, and it’s the most enriching feeling to both test your comfort zone and ignite your inner-child in the same breath.
You see, India isn’t for everyone. But it IS for anyone who wants to see beauty in both the obvious and beyond the surface-level details.
I was slapped in the face by the scents of the spice market, but caressed like a newborn by the smiles of the locals.
They stared at me with looks of adoration and I took close to 50 selfies at the Taj Mahal alone.
My friend, visibly disturbed, began shielding my face with an umbrella when he noticed the stares of some to linger a bit too long. But I explained how I really didn't mind it.
Here I was, bringing my chocolate @%$ to someone else’s country in all my black girl magic, glitter, and gold, so yes, I expect no less than a dozen broken necks.
So stare or take a picture, because this melanin is magic 💁🏾 I'm a cultural chameleon, and I both blend in and stand out everywhere I go.
But seriously, I feel so privileged to be here, and I’m humbled by the kindness and warmth I’ve been received with.
I’m a solo traveler at heart, but being here with my dear friend @DakotaAdan is how I’m able to capture these endless memories and experience travel’s highest of highs in just a corner of this pale, blue dot we inhabit.
India's heritage is their glory and its colors are their weapon.
My eyes have been treated to the deepest hues of the rainbow, and I will never look at colors the same again.
So… is India on YOUR bucket list? Check my stories for all the madness we got up to in the first 48 hours!
