SUMMER • NIGHTS
One of my favourite moments from our vacation in Tuscany: en evening walk with my boy! It doesn't happen often that I am alone with one of the kids but when it happens, we both love it and feel so happy about it. I really want to carve more on-to-one time with my children but it's not always easy! How do you find one on one time (with a child or your partner) when travelling as a family? #familytravel #familytrails #tuscanycious #letthekids #wearetravelmums #traveltheworld #bestdays #bbctravel #vacationmode #gorgeous_shot #beautifuldestinations #view #traveltherenext #guardiantravelsnaps #tbscommunity #tbin #femaletravelbloggers #tuscanygramers #tuscanycious #italy_hidden_gems #italylover #travelstoke #italygram #road #trees #parenting #familygoals

I need to be honest and say that Belize's islands didn't blow me away, for the most part. In terms of Latin American beach locations, I definitely prefer others (especially when it comes to price, value for money, and swimmable beaches sans excessive seaweed).
That being said - Ambergris Caye had a few hidden gems, like the swanky beach resort Victoria House and THIS spot, Secret Beach. It is an absolute must for anyone in search of secluded crystal waters.
Like all the Belizean beaches, Secret Beach is open to the public, and you can use the docks, chairs, and hammocks if you buy a beer or something from the associated beach bar. Not a bad deal!

Perfectly average 💁🏽

This is what a beach day in Northern Norway looks like. ☀️⛱🌊Is this your kind of beach?

TBT to two days of exploring the colorful villages of Cinque Terre 😍

Nothing like a wedding to make you fall in love all over again. Congrats to the bride @encunningham and groom @c_rawse!! So glad we could share in your day! #likeaross17

Today has been quite stormy with lots of thunder ⛈ on Ambergris Caye, and it reminded me of the crazy storm that passed through last week while we were on Caye Caulker. We were headed to town to grab breakfast and tried to outrun this, but we failed miserably as we got drenched a couple blocks down. lol ☔️

Our guide, Joan, took us high up into the Pyrenees today to explore the 22 or so high altitude lakes in the area. I had high hopes for the country, I did, but they were blown out of the water today. And that's largely to do with the hospitality of @pioletsparkspa! We love it here!

The beautiful art nouveau Art Pavilion in Zagreb, built in 1897. #artlove

We stayed in the sweetest little @airbnb in Hokitika. We were in a cabin just metres from the beach and fell asleep listening to the crashing waves. I'd planned to get up before first light but when my alarm went off I was so warm and cosy listening to the ocean that I couldn't bear getting out of bed. Cuddles trump sunrises, you see. But when I could see the pinky glow of the clear sky I managed to drag myself out of bed, just throwing a coat over my nightie. Because sunrises trump looking like a normal person.

For such a small nation, it's incredible how much beauty can be found within Andorra's borders.

Hands up if you think Tuscany looks like a dream! 🙋🏼

I'm not usually a tea kind of gal, but I loved the Kea Lani tea at The Empress in beautiful V I C T O R I A ☕️! Oranges, pineapples, and the prettiest of pinks! 💗

Perfect sunset 'cotton candy clouds' over York Harbor this evening.

Spending a week in Maine, a place my husband and I visited whenever we had a spare day off during our time living in Massachusetts. Also - it's cool and dry here, but the sun is still strong, making it the perfect early autumn weather... in July. #notmadaboutit

What's your favorite beach town? I raved about San Juan del Sur in Nicaragua, but it's still a close second to Montezuma in Costa Rica. This bus does a good job of capturing the town: colorful but relaxing. It's a pretty carefree place where you can go by your own schedule.

An interesting night of history at the Neon Museum.

Last week I took on one of the hardest challenges of my life - riding my bike 203 miles from Seattle to Portland. As much as I normally enjoy Portland, I have never been so excited to see it in my life.

⚠️ warning: awkward travel moments ahead!!⠀
⠀
I've been thinking a lot about social media, and how perfect and pretty images hugely influence our perception of reality📸. I mean, having cute outfits, perfect hair 💁 and the prefect tan isn't always possible or realistic when we're traveling ✈️🌎 (case in point ☝️ this photo from Hakone in Japan, you probably can't tell but I was SWEATING like crazy)⠀
⠀
A lot of travel is awkward, uncomfortable and just plain gross 😝 So in celebration of awkward travel, this post is for you if:⠀
⠀
>> you've gotten food poisoning and then proceeded to spend an entire night curled up in a ball on a (questionably clean) bathroom floor 👈 Probably #TMI but totally needed to be shared 😜⠀
⠀
>> you've had your flight delayed in (what feels like) the worlds most boring airport 😐⠀
⠀
>> you haven't been 💯 percent sure what food you're about to eat in a foreign country 😬⠀
⠀
>> you've forgotten to reapply your sunscreen and thus proceeded to get sunburn in a place where the sun doesn't normally shine 😡⠀
⠀
And lastly (because this happened to me recently...)⠀
⠀
>> you've missed your bus (or any other form of transport) and had to trek in hot humid weather for (what feels like) hours, arriving at your destination sweaty, smelly & in a desperate need of a shower 🚿 ⠀
⠀
So in celebration of #uglytravelmoments, I'd love to hear from YOU ✊ what are some of your awkward, not-so-great or uncomfortable travel moments?? Have I missed any classic moments??? Leave me a comment, let me know! 😆👇⠀

Hey friends! There are a few new friends that's joined in on my story so I thought I'd introduce myself! I'm Helena and I'm a 23 year old photographer and travel blogger currently living in colonial Old Town Alexandria, 10 minutes outside of Washington DC. I basically live in another version of Starr's Hallow from Gilmore Girls. 😍Most days you will find me in a vintage dress, exploring some new destination with a notebook and camera in one hand and my boyfriend's hand in another. A huge animal lover, I foster dogs and write about my latest travels and wildlife encounters on my blog Wildlife With Woods and I freelance photograph to pay the bills! I move around a lot, recently having lived in San Diego and NYC and am planning another move with my boyfriend to Japan or Australia in 2018! (Because we are both restless and love tackling new places, projects and life changes!) Other fun facts? I'm a certified scuba diver and love love LOVE our oceans, am a champion bookworm and a chocolate mouse connoisseur! Lets be friends and form some sort of travel / blogging / entrepreneurship / girl power community - tell me 5 random fun facts about you! ❤✨

Did you know that #moscow has a #unesco #church dating back to 1532 - before Ivan the Terrible? 😵⛪️

I love the feel of this rainy night scene at Schwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar’s holiest Buddhist shrine (found in Yangon). ------------------
Because it was a particularly holy time (the day before a Full Moon), the vast temple complex was filled with pilgrims & their offerings - like this religious procession.

Looking to spend your afternoon digging for diamonds? Look no further than Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. While we were there, a guy found a four carat diamond.
