I moved apartments in Cape Town and will be returning later this year. It's always sad to go, but it's about time I returned to the US for the last bit of summer! See you soon #CapeTown!

Back in South Africa and jumped straight over to Kruger National Park. How insane is this villa at @RoyalMalewane?! I fell asleep to lions roaring and woke up to elephants drinking from my pool 😍😍😍

{ NEW VIDEO } Scuba diving Bazaruto Island in Mozambique! 🐠🐑🦈

By far, one of the most incredible diving experiences in the world! On a solo trip to Mozambique, I dove pristine reefs and experienced the magic of being surrounded by 6 manta rays at once.

I've essentially spent the past 5 days underwater. I completed 7 scuba dives, including my first night dive and a 160ft deep dive to a Japanese shipwreck.

One of the things that I love about traveling solo and diving, is the familial bond you instantly feel with a dive shop. I made friends with some incredible girls and had a blast learning from local dive instructors. I highly recommend @trawangandive to anyone visiting Gili T-- a big shoutout to their team for making my experience here so epic.
And thanks to everyone that suggested I visit this little slice o' paradise-- my trip to the Gili Islands has been unforgettable!

After 5 weeks in Bali, it's time to explore more of Indonesia on my own! I'll be traveling solo for a few days, scuba diving in the #GiliIslands, and then I'm off to #Lombok.
Recommendations appreciated! (Check out my Instagram stories to see more of my adventures!)

Sunrise over Mount Kelimutu πŸŒ‹

Last summer, while traveling around the islands of Indonesia, I woke up at 3am to trek to this viewpoint before sunrise.

These incredible volcanic lakes change color unpredictably-- from blue to green to red to black.

It's a natural phenomenon that locals believe is caused by departed souls using the lakes as a resting place. Hauntingly beautiful, eh?

I shot the time lapse at sunrise on my @GoPro #HERO5 and flew my @DJIgolbal #Phantom4 #Drone over the lakes after the sun lit them up in saturated shades of green and turquoise.
