Hungover but went to a bar with me anyway. I love u and ur ginger ailments @marviee_ ❀️❀️❀️❀️

Appropriation or appreciation? There's such a grey line, in my eyes. I was told many of the women wearing kimonos in Kyoto were actually Korean and Chinese tourists. But apparently even some Japanese women wear kimonos when they visit this beautiful town. A woman I asked who sold second hand yukatas said it lends itself to the experience. #k8ventures #explorejapan #kyoto

I won't pretend I know what I'm doing. But I did discover that my best pictures often included people who have given me such beautiful memories. #explorejapan #k8ventures

Hot. In. Topeka. #nyc #waow #summertimesadness

"You'll die eventually, but not today." If you listen closely you can hear him say this beneath my nervous laughter πŸ˜… Climbing into and repelling out of one of the limestone mountains on Railay was seriously one of the most rewarding experiences ever #k8ventures #explorethailand #goprohero1

About a year ago I had a reality check re: my core values and goals in life. I made a vision board out of colorful Post-It notes to remap everything out, and stuck it onto the side of my bookcase. In the row of places I wanted to see in the next 6 months, JAPAN was number 1. And while I waited months to turn dream into reality, I changed my iPhone home screen into an image of Kyoto's bamboo groves--a small reminder that it is never enough to just say you will do something. #k8ventures #explorejapan #sonyalpha

Happy birthday to my soul sister on the other side of the planet. Thank you for making my first hanami experience and one of my last few days in Japan unforgettable. πŸŒΊπŸ‘―πŸŒΈ #k8ventures #explorejapan #hanami

Past meets future beneath the skies of Downtown Core and the back alleys of Boat Quay. Singaporean streets are not just clean, they are a beautiful juxtaposition of what once was and how high this country can rise. (Can u tell how much I loved Singapore LOL) #exploresingapore #k8ventures #iphonepic #iphoneonly #iphone7 #vsco #agameoftones

Still in the midst of processing my emotions over the last now 7 weeks. I'm at the end of my eat pray love moment, carrying home countless memories, scars, friendships, and inspiration. I've learned so much about how to actually travel, and who I am. Ive checked off my dream of visiting Japan and eating my way through Asia. But seriously solo traveling, solo backpacking, is not for everyone. (I'm not even sure if it's even for me.) If you think you know your limit, you have every logical right to stay there. But if you're like me, who was curious to try on a new approach to life and turn worlds upside down, make that savings plan and buy that one way ticket. It will be one of the best things you've ever done. #k8ventures #explorethailand #nofilter #seriously #thatsametaltable #skyporn #solotraveling #dametravelers #captionsbyk8
