Have you seen @crazyrichasians yet??? Have you read the trilogy by @kevinkwanbooks ???

It’s surprising how many people I meet that have never been to Asia that ate under the assumption that Asia is an underdeveloped nation! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Singapore is the city of the future and a fantastic gateway city into the rest of Asia. If you ever have a layover at SIN, I encourage you to turn it into at least a 2 day stopover.
From amazing food, tech, museums and the friendliest people, you’ll fall in love with Singapore!

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Have you been to Colombia?
South America?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Unless you’ve been watching my stories, I’ve been MIA on social media for the past 2 weeks. Danny and I won a free trip from @snackcrate for 3 nights and we decided to extend that trip by another week since it was to be our first time in SA and it happened to coincide with our 2 year anniversary!
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
So Colombia has been a country of interest but due to its close proximity to the states, only 3 hours from MIA, I hadn’t planned on going any time soon. However when this opportunity arose, we decided to make the most of it and explored Cartagena and the Rosario Islands!
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I had a truly wonderful time. The people were some of the most accommodating I have ever met whilst traveling. Everyone wanted their pictures taken and were eager to chat through google translate and what little Spanish we knew!
So the gist of it?
We will definitely be back to explore the rest of the country!

We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost. <RB>
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
What do you travel for? 💫
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Travel is my way of learning.
I can’t imagine living in one place. And haven’t really found a place to “settle down”
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
First time shooting by myself with my new baby! I don’t have a remote so I had to resort to a 10 second timer. I haven’t perfected my craft with this beauty yet but for a noob I thought this came out decent 😅

What house do you belong to?
Include an emoji!

Do you remember which house I belong to?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
As most of you know...I’m a total closet bookworm and diehard Potterhead. The movies are great but incomparable to the literary work.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I will be eternally grateful for having been a part of the generation that grew up with Harry.

Thanks to @officialjkrowling and her imagination, she opened our hearts and minds to a new magical world that I can’t imagine living without. She showed us that if your heart is truly in it, you will persevere.
She taught us not to fear irrationally. To open our hearts and our minds. That we aren’t born good or evil and that there is both light and dark inside us- what matters is the part we choose to act on. And that anything is possible if you’ve got enough nerve.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
So if you have not read the series, I encourage you to!
Come join us in this magical world with your wands up!

After all, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home 💫.

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist. <FN>
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Do you have a bucket list?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Far too often we find ourselves complacent. I don’t necessarily set goals for myself, nor do I create lists. Because once you’ve accomplished those set goals or checked off all the items on your bucket list...what’s next?

Not fulfilling a list doesn’t mean that you’re any less accomplished. With each day you change and grow as a person. Your goals, wants and needs will also change. So why limit yourself to a list?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
So do I have a bucket list? Honestly? No. I have never written one nor do I plan to. Because I am greedy in that I want to see and explore everything. 😅 So I guess if I had a list it would just have the word life on it 🤔

Be a little Boulder! 💫 😅
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Where’s somewhere you’ve never been because safety has been an issue?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I went to Jordan right after the Al-Karak attack in 2016. Our itinerary had been modified to detour from Kerak Castle as a precaution.

But I never felt unsafe in Jordan, nor in any other Middle Eastern country.
At the end of the day, tragic events like these are unavoidable. An attack is just as likely to happen in London and New York as it is Amman or Cairo. Sure you can hole yourself up and never leave home; but you’re more likely to get hit by a car crossing the street than be a victim of a large scale attack.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Middle Eastern countries get such a bad rep but I’ve had some of the most incredible moments in the Middle East!

So don’t let fear stop you from living!
Because if you’re just sitting there, constantly worried about your safety and refusing to take a chance...are you really living?

Let’s go to sleep in Paris
And wake up in Tokyo (LF) 💫🛩⛩
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Do you ever book a hotel room just for the view? 🌅 🌃
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Location and proximity to things/transportation are always my priority when I travel.
An insane view doesn’t hurt either 😜

I love these moments the most whilst traveling. That realization of how tiny I am in this great big world.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Have you been to any UNESCO world heritage sites?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
“World Heritage Sites are cultural and/or natural sites considered to be of 'Outstanding Universal Value', which have been inscribed on the World Heritage List by the World Heritage Committee.

These places or buildings are thought to: have special importance for everyone.”
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Don’t seek out world heritage sites just to check off a list.
Go so you may understand the cultural and historical significance of the place.

Empathy won’t save the world, but it’s a good place to start.

Those who don’t believe in Magic will never find it (RD) 💫
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Where’s one place that you went that felt absolutely magical to you?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
One of my favorite spots in the world has to Plitvice Lakes. It’s somewhere I had wanted to go for years and when the time finally came, it was even better than I had dare hoped!
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I got up at 4 and dragged the guys into the car and drove us 2.5 hours north to get there as the gates opened. The boys were sleepy, hungry and obsessed with Pokémon at the time (they’re full grown men FYI) but it didn’t put a damper on my mood as I ran through the gates! One of my friends said I lit up and was so full of joy! 😅
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
So if you’re ever in the region, GO! As a UNESCO site, the lakes are well cared for and clean! It is such a wonderous place full of magic!
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Pro Tip: get there when the gates open to avoid the tour buses. Especially during high season. And if you find yourself in Croatia during the winter holidays, GO! Elsa’s got nothing on this winter wonderland!

Can you guess which team I’m rooting for? 😜🇭🇷🇭🇷🇭🇷
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Pro Tip: always have water shoes when you’ve playing along the Adriatic!
Yes they’re hideous but the coastal beaches and waterfalls are rocky!
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
If you ever find yourself in Croatia, make sure to check out Krka. We spent the morning in Plitvice and on our drive down back to Split we decided to stop by and check this sweet spot out.

The bus ride from the parking lot is a bit terrifying but totally worth it!
And how did I manage a shot by myself when it was midday?
The current is surprisingly strong! It took so much effort to swim to the barrier!
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
SO if anyone ever asks if you want to go to a waterfall...#always! 🇭🇷 .
