Once upon a time in a far away land... 💛🌼
My phone broke last week. It was frustrating. And then amazing. It took about 3 days for me to stop automatically reaching for my nonexistent phone every time life slowed down. But then I did stop. And those annoying slow times transformed into me times. Conversation times. The minutes grew and expanded into quality time. I’d highly suggest giving it a try! (Although hopefully without breaking your phone first). 😉
The more you know: mustard weed—that’s the flowering plant above—is used as a cover crop in some areas to protect the soil and reduce pests. Soon after it flowers, the plant is cleared to make room for the main specialty or cash crop. The decaying plant delivers nutrients into the soil that are often striped by the cash crop. It also protects the soil from wind and rain over long periods of time, as opposed to traditional agricultural techniques that left the soil bare for months on end during the off-season. This was taken just before the plant was cleared, and it’s important to distinguish between heavy-use agricultural land, and natural habitats. -
I hate influencers. Influencers are the worst. Being an influencer is a fake job.
These are words that I hear on a weekly, if not daily, basis. I don’t think they are malicious, often said without any real thought behind the words. It is to most a joke, a subset of individuals we all love to hate. I don’t often use the term “influencer” to describe myself, but at the end of the day that is how many would classify me. It is also how I would classify many of my close friends, ladies that inspire me every single day. I am admittedly embarrassed to share this fact about myself in professional settings, even though I am truly proud of my accomplishments. It begs the question about what makes influencers so disliked?
The most common answer is the seemingly effortless job — “all you have to do is post photos”. Let me tell ya, it is SO much more than that. There is a whole lot of iceberg beneath the water.
All I ever wanted to do was travel and encourage others to do the same, planning and hosting trips around the world. I didn’t ever set out with the goal of being an influencer, but let me tell you, I worked damn hard to get to this place.
So I hope at the end of the day, we can reframe our thinking. We can redefine what an influencer is, looking back at the original meaning of the word — someone who is influential. I hope that I influence you, that I inspire you, to see more of the world. To embark on a solo trip, or take time to go back backpacking through an unknown part of the world. I hope that I inspire you to get out of your comfort zone, to swim against the current.
On that note, brb — time to plan some epic adventures for 2020! ✌🏼

La Chiesa del Salvatore sul Sangue Versato (in lingua russa Спась на крови) sorge a San Pietroburgo, nel punto in cui lo zar Alessandro II venne ucciso nel 1881 in un attentato mentre attraversava la zona con la sua carrozza.
Le cerimonie religiose nell'edificio sono state ufficialmente arrestate nel 1930; da allora la chiesa è rimasta esclusivamente luogo visitabile (escluse rare eccezioni). Al suo interno vi sono mosaici meravigliosi e un altare che ricorda lo storico avvenimento.
A symbol of Drobeta, the Water Tower was built at the beginning of the 20th century as part of the city’s water filtration and supply system. It is built out of reinforced concrete after the plans of Romanian engineer Elie Radu, who worked on many road and railroad projects in the country and on Bucharest’s water supply network. At 27 meters in height and 10 meters in diameter, it has been the city’s tallest building for some time. This is why it served as an observation point for firemen and for the military, during the First World War.
The building was recently refurbished with the help of EU funds and turned into an ‘Arts’ Castle,’ hosting various exhibitions, a museum covering the history of Drobeta’s water supply process, and a place to admire the city views.
"Easy hikes in Ecuador’s Páramo del Ángel (Angel’s Tundra) Protected Area allow you to explore a landscape worthy of a Star Wars film, dotted with high-altitude lagoons and mysterious forests of polylepis trees with paper-like bark. Above all, tall, fuzzy, rabbit-eared frailejones – a rare plant and distant relative of the sunflower – dominate this biological hot spot. When the fog clears, the view goes all the way from the Colombian border in the north to the equatorial glacier of Volcán Cayambe in the south" - Stephan Küffner, author of The Rough Guide to Ecuador & The Galápagos, for our secrets-themed 200th issue, on one of his top secret walks.

Rome Tip - In Rome most famous attractions are so close to each other, you can just walk and cover all in half day post morning visit to Colosseum.
Here is the route I followed - Piazza Navona -> Pantheon -> Trevi Fountain -> Spanish Steps. In the evening after covering Spanish Steps you can have dinner in the nearby restaurants (Italian style) and call it a day.
Going on a trip needs about 4 outfit. Girls, packed 35 just to be safe.
