Bright city lights, the dreaded morning alarm clock, fast cars and honking horns – all part of the daily routine that stops you from taking a moment to breathe and evaluate just what the hell you want to do in life. “Do” as in, not what you need to do to pay bills and put food in your fridge, but what you WANT to do, what will bring not just contentment, but actual happiness. Travel is my weapon to combat this. It instantly strips away all distractions and floods my mindSEE DETAILS
They say pictures are worth a thousand words, so I’m going to let the pictures below tell you why I fell in love.
Hot-air ballooning has got to be one of the funnest activities I've ever done abroad. Not only did we get to ride a hot-air balloon over the Teotihuacan Pyramids, but because Contiki has scheduled a shoot with the tour company, we got dance around inside the hot-air balloon!
I was SO excited when Contiki asked me to join their Travel Influencer shoot this year! I had never really done any type of vlogging with the exception of that one time I got deported from Australia, oops, but since this was a special occasion, I wanted to document the whole thing. This is part I of the 3 video journey from Sydney > LA layover > Mexico > Belize. Here's some quick snaps of the trip below!
So in 2016 I got sponsored by my employer in Sydney, Australia. I was happy as an aussie clam to get the news. With a Working Holiday Visa (which was the type I entered the country with), you're only allowed to work for an employer for 6 months. I was aware of this, however, when the guy hired to file my paperwork to get that portion sorted kind of sort of missed that step.
Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.
