  • Stargazing on the golf course 🌌⛳️😍
••
••
Before my recent trip to Hawaii I didn’t know that it’s quite the perfect place for astrophotographers!! There’s very little light pollution (which I guess should have been obvious to me since it’s isolated deep in the Pacific Ocean), and I had a blast walking around the @ritzcarltonkapalua resort as night, staring up at the sky, and trying to snap some cool shots of the Milky Way! ••
••
This night in particular was spectacular, and the entire sky was covered with stars everywhere you looked. I’m sure I looked a bit odd wandering around the golf course at night by myself, sitting on the ground for minutes at a time, and using my backpack as a tripod, lol.  But I think it was well worth it! ••

Happy Friday everyone!  Doing anything fun? I’m in Seattle for the night, and starting the evening at a rooftop champagne party/potluck dinner. (I brought hummus, chips, and an assortment of dips). Lol. ••

  • ALOHA INSTAGRAM!👋🏻 I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a picture on my feed, and I didn’t even mean to take that long of an IG break! I’ve just been swamped with life stuff like my best friend’s wedding last month, moving to the PNW, a spontaneous 8-day vacation to Hawaii, and catching up on mountains of work! But I’m back, and am stoked to share some content from my recent adventures around Maui! ••
••
First up - our one-hour scenic flight over Maui & Molokai with @maverickhelicopters was truly spectacular! It was the perfect way to begin the trip, because it gave us a much better appreciation of the landscape of the island.  Hawaii is incredibly jaw-dropping, and getting a bird’s eye view of the mountains, coastlines, and massive waterfalls is a must! ••
••
Now that I’m based back in the U.S.A, I’m thinking I might need to hop down to Hawaii a bit more often, lol. 😍😍

  • WHERE ARE YOU TRAVELING THIS SUMMER...? ✈️🌏 ••
••
For first the time since I was 18, I’m planning on staying stateside the entire summer!  I’ll be based in the PNW though, so I’m sure my weekends will be filled with lots of hikes, waterfalls, and landscapes photography. 📸🌲🇺🇸 ••
••
This photo was taken just a couple months ago on the first day of my Australian Outback adventure with @ausoutbacknt !! If you’re looking for trip ideas, I’d recommend you fly to Darwin for some tropical vibes during the Australian winter.  I wrote up a massive 5000 word itinerary, so go check it out!! ••

Did you know I lived in the Netherlands back in 2013...? It was just a short 5-month stay in Leiden (about 30 minutes south of Amsterdam), but I really did love my time there!  It’s where I began my Masters Degree, but then decided to escape to Southeast Asia during winter and complete the rest of my degree online!

Shoutout to all my Dutch friends who follow me on here!  I miss you guys, and will try and make it back to NL sometime soon :-)

I’ll give you a hint, it starts with an “M” and one of my favorite fellow travel bloggers @happytowander lives there, and showed me around during my visit last summer!  I’m also hoping to make it back there in September for one of the world greatest festivals! 🍺🍻

  • Where East meets West — a crossroads of civilizations 🇹🇷🌍

Who’s been to Istanbul?  I was fortunate enough to go back last October (just for a couple quick days) after an incredible time exploring the Cannakale region of Turkey, and loved every second of it! ••
••
From hopping on the cheap river cruises, exploring the chaotic & colorful markets, and watching the sunset as I marvel at the all the mosque towers glowing in the golden hour light 🕌😍🔥

  • What podcasts are you listening to...? I feel like I’m late to the game, because I’ve never really gotten into any (mainly because I’m always listening to music).
.
I would love any recommendations for business, comedy, inspirational, etc. .
Thanks!! 🙌🏻👏🏻
