We've missed out on celebrating so many events in the company of family, friends and strangers this past year.⁣ ⁣ However, the pandemic has taught us that there's always an alternate way to do things!⁣ ⁣ I've always ended up visiting Ireland at least once a year and was crestfallen when I couldn't visit again last year.⁣ ⁣ But Tourism Ireland decided to go out of their way to make sure everyone felt included in the celebrations for St.Patrick's Day this year!⁣ ⁣ On the 17th (tomorrow) you can join thousands of others online to celebrate the festivities from a traditional pub!⁣ ⁣ There'll be music and dancing, you'll be shown how to pour Guinness (yes there's a certain way) and be shown footage of numerous landmarks turning green!⁣ ⁣ You can set the pace and decide what you'd like to do, all from the comforts of your home!⁣ ⁣ I hope to see you there!⁣ ⁣ Link also in Bio!⁣ [ad] ⁣ ——⁣ ⁣ #HappyStPatricksDay⁣ #PaddysDay⁣ #GlobalGreening⁣ #LongingForIreland⁣

——⁣ ⁣ Free giveaway by AppSumo worth $60K! ⁣ ——⁣ ⁣ Took advantage of the sunny weekend to go out and work away from the confines of the house!⁣ ⁣ Charged my laptop and made sure I didn't need WiFi for a socially distanced hour working away in the sun. ⁣ ⁣ Working from anywhere has been the dream for many. ⁣ ⁣ One of the unexpected benefits to come out of the pandemic has been the possibility of remote work for many (including me).⁣ ⁣ For many digital nomads, it has been a trying time as it hasn't been possible to do so for a while. ⁣ ⁣ So, to make things even better when we can all travel safely again, AppSumo, an online marketplace made for and by entrepreneurs, has an awesome “Work Anywhere for a Year” Giveaway!” that anyone can enter for free.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Breakdown of the prizes:⁣ ⁣ Two winners will each get $24K in Airbnb credits, while ten winners will receive an Office-to-Go Swag Bag containing:⁣ ⁣ - NOMATIC Backpack⁣ - ASUS Portable Monitor MB16AMT⁣ - Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones⁣ - Lume Cube⁣ - NETGEAR Wifi Extender⁣ - Cafflano Klassic⁣ ⁣ The giveaway ends March 15, 2021.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Link to enter in Bio.

Happy mid-February to all those who haven’t been following the stories! ⁣ ⁣ Thought I’d share one of my fav captures of last year, of the only trip I did hesitatingly (very apt for today!) ⁣ ⁣ I did try my best to post earlier but of course nowadays getting through the day is task enough! ⁣ ⁣ For me this winter has probably been the hardest, as I’m a tropical person and with it being lockdown again, I haven’t stepped out in days!⁣ ⁣ If you’re struggling too, I’m sending good vibes your way! ⁣ ⁣ Things have certainly been improving in some countries and India has gotten me curious with the drop in cases and life returning to normal!⁣ ⁣ How’s it where you’re based? ⁣ ⁣ ————⁣ ⁣

Tell me one thing you liked about 2020! ⁣ ⁣ ————⁣ ⁣ [ad] I’m not sure whether I’m dancing here because: ⁣ - (unpopular opinion) I actually sorta liked 2020 and had a lot of wins ⁣ - or that the year is finally coming to a close ⁣ ⁣ Either way what I have missed most about travel is....EVERYTHING! ⁣ ⁣ Prague here for example.⁣ ⁣ The city is popular for its beer gardens and stag parties but there’s a lot more happening!⁣ - The food here is an eclectic mix of traditional and innovative ⁣ - The architecture here has historical stories to go with it yet there’s quirky installations all around the city ⁣ - The street art scene here is beautiful as well as are the castles! ⁣ ⁣ I’ve put together a list of places and monuments you can #CzechIn2021 in the beautiful city of Prague, ones that include items like:⁣ - a man sitting on an upside down horse⁣ - giant babies⁣ - a man hanging from a pole in the middle of the street!⁣ ⁣ Some are the work of renowned sculptor creator David Cerny, yet all have a story to tell.⁣ ⁣ The whole list has been live on the website for a week. So take a look if you’re planning to @visitcz in the coming year! Link in Bio too!

Did you get to travel at all this year? ⁣ ⁣ ———⁣ ⁣ The only trip I took this year, albeit very hesitantly was to the Cotswolds!⁣ ⁣ Only when I stepped outside my house did I realise how much I needed to! ⁣ ⁣ And while it was still quite busy, it was the recreational therapy I required to keep me going the next few months.⁣ ⁣ Unlike many, this year so far (we still have 15 days to go) has been amazing for me ⁣ ⁣ It didn’t have the usual dose of travel or authentic world food peppered during the duration but I still got to take a journey ⁣ ⁣ And while it may sound cheesy and sentimental to some it was one that was needed too for growth. ⁣ I had to look at how I could be happy with my own company and what I could do to stay happy with the least amount of interaction⁣ ⁣ I’m heartbroken for what many have had to go through this year but I’m glad this year has made us realise that we need to take a better look at our priorities! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #cotswoldliving #thecotswolds #discovercotswolds #englandtravel #villagelifestyle

Just wanted to pop by to say Happy Diwali! ⁣ ⁣ While I’m not a private person, I don’t tend to overshare on social media⁣ ⁣ I’m not Hindu but I do celebrate Diwali and when I do I rarely take (or post) pics⁣ ⁣ Since this year has been different, decided to make use of the occasion to dress up and take a rare pic of myself⁣ ⁣ Here’s hoping good overtakes evil, we are kinder to each other, especially people who make an effort as they may be the ones who may surprise you and continue to persevere even when things seem dark! ⁣ ⁣ Keep shining! #diwalivibes✨ #diwalicelebration

TELL ME: What’s one festival you’ve really enjoyed being at?⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ AD- Thinking of the time I saw the light festival bring warmth to Seoul during winter! ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ Seoul gets illuminated by multi coloured lights when it gets starts getting colder!⁣ ⁣ There are numerous festivals held across the country however most of them are in Seoul⁣ ⁣ Gardens, alleys and tunnels are lit during the festival and the whole place looks magical, especially during the start of advent! ⁣ ⁣ This year there’s the Garden of Morning Calm Lighting festival, Pocheon Herb Island light festival, Petite France Little Prince lightning festival taking place to name a few starting in December! ⁣ ⁣ If you’re in the country it’s definitely worth a visit! ⁣ Since I’m not, I can’t wait to #seekoreanext when it’s safe to do so! ⁣ The lights and the tasty, spicy food instantly make you feel warm and comfy! ⁣ ⁣ Scroll right to see more images of the festival across Seoul town, it’ll make you want to visit it first when you can! ⁣ It is certainly worth a visit! ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ #iHopDestinations⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣#ourheartsarealwaysopen #imagineyourkorea #igerseurope #womenwhoexplore, #travelinladies #girlsthatwander #dametraveler #ourplanetdaily⁣ #iamatraveller #mydomainetravels #suitcasetravels #letsgosomewhere #livecolorfully #TLpicks #tandctravel #theprettycities #beautifuldestinations ⁣#finditliveit #visitkorealater

TELL ME: What’s one place you’d like to visit when you can? ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ Thinking of a time years ago when I visited Seoul in South Korea, a place that’s advanced and ancient and will always keep you yearning for more!⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Seoul is one place that’s heartwarming! Full of history, jovial and colourful people and scrumptious food! ⁣ ⁣ It’s got 5 grand and ancient palaces like the one in the picture; Gyeongbokgung Palace (also called Gyeongbok Palace) which was the main palace of the Joseon dynasty and is full of gates and beautiful architecture. ⁣ ⁣ And while images like these bring back good memories it’s the feeling a place brings that makes you want to visit it more! ⁣ Evenings full of meals like Bibimbap, a big bowl of Dak Galbi shared with friends along with some soju and then heading to Itaewon to get a taste of the nightlife are some memories I’d love to create first!⁣ ⁣ Visiting in winter is perfect as you’ll get to see the Winter lights festival too during Xmas time (scroll to see what I mean) and it would be the perfect reason to #SeeKoreaNext when it’s safe to do so! 🤞🏽⁣ ⁣ I’m comfy in my couch currently but it’ll sure be nice to travel when we can! Till then I hope this images brings up good memories of Korea if you’ve been inspires you to travel here next!⁣ [ad] ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ #iHopDestinations⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ ⁣#ourheartsarealwaysopen #visitkorea #seoulkorea #seoulpalace #itaewoncafe #culturegram

LET’S TALK ABOUT: Content creators and Covid ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Reminiscing about my first and only trip this year which I was skeptical about....⁣ Little did I know it would be the only one this year outside the UK! ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ After countless Zoom calls (who knew getting burnout due to zoom calls could be a thing) it was clear that the best way forward for creators was to keep a ear to the ground to check which countries were being innovative about travel, how the situation was being handled and which were opening doors to visitors. ⁣ ⁣ How did that translate for us creators? ⁣ Did we have to stop or pause all we’d been doing? ⁣ Absolutely not! ⁣ ⁣ It did however mean focusing on local sites, coming up with innovative ways to work and network and I for sure have LOVED how most of us have broken free of what we thought we should be doing and just going ahead and doing what brings us joy. ⁣ ⁣ Some of us have hustled more than we ever have and the results are beautiful! ⁣ ⁣ What about others just looking to start? Should they just dump the idea? ⁣ NO!⁣ Quite the opposite! ⁣ Start one if you’ve wanted to, to use this time to work with brands, start selling products or just creating an online presence! ⁣ ⁣ If it’s about working with brands consider joining my mini-workshop I’m conducting on the 7th of July at 5.30PM BST to know the deets about how to pitch and work with brands and get paid! ⁣ ⁣ Link in bio! ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ #iHopDestinations⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣#living_europe #igerseurope #womenwhoexplore, #travelinladies #girlsthatwander #dametraveler #ourplanetdaily⁣ #iamatraveller #mydomainetravels #suitcasetravels #letsgosomewhere #livecolorfully #TLpicks #tandctravel #theprettycities #beautifuldestinations ⁣#finditliveit #thisisholland #bestinTravel2020 #visitholland #visitgroningen #ighollandsnapshots

TELL ME : How many days do you get off work if you work 9-5? ⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ Thinking back to one of my most memorable holidays more than 10 years ago!⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ A decade ago when I’d just started my career, taking holidays was taboo.⁣ ⁣ We’d get about 21 days leave (including sick days) and the more holidays you took the less professional you were considered.⁣ ⁣ I remember taking one holiday a year and looking forward to it for the next one for 11 months after I was back! ⁣ ⁣ Fast forward to now, I had burn out due to travel last year. It was all work and I had quite a few health issues too. ⁣ ⁣ I know you all will agree that sometimes life seems slow and sometimes you don’t even get time to breathe, but there’s a time for everything like they say!⁣ ⁣ Even if we’re in a pandemic, as things start to go back to normal I hope we don’t forget how much we’ve cherished time with family, taking time out for hobbies and in some cases self-care.⁣ ⁣ I for sure am going to try to continue to make time for things I like and people I admire!⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ #iHopDestinations⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣#kerala_godsowncountry #kerala_gram, #keralatrip #girlsthatwander #dametraveler #ourplanetdaily⁣ #iamatraveller #mydomainetravels #suitcasetravels #letsgosomewhere #livecolorfully #TLpicks #tandctravel #theprettycities #beautifuldestinations ⁣#finditliveit

TELL ME : Do you know how much you’re capable of and what you can do?⁣ And Happy Juneteenth to my Black friends! ⁣ ~~⁣⁣ ⁣ Trying to balance myself on the tracks of a train that runs outside people’s houses in Hà Nội ⁣ ⁣⁣ ~~⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It’s been more than a year we went hopping around Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos⁣ ⁣ It was fun, relaxing, the food was great but above all it felt like home ⁣ We blended among the locals, loved the banter and the noise of traffic and dodging amongst the vehicles.⁣ ⁣ Little did I know at that time of the year that was in store for me. I’d just gotten over being discriminated yet again, and a bigger personal challenge was waiting for me. ⁣ Just as I was putting things in place 2020 struck. ⁣ ⁣ If anything the last year and the one we’re facing has taught me is that not just me but WE ALL have the capability to do much much more.....while also prioritising self-care!⁣ ⁣ So hang in there, don’t ignore yourself, reach out to people if needed and try a little to do better - for yourself and for others. ⁣ ⁣ We could all do with pursuing something a little bigger than us, make sure to do your bit even if it means influencing a single person or just having a chat with them⁣ ⁣ It’s important to just keep moving ....but also doing your bit to help with the change no matter how big or small ⁣ It’ll be difficult at first but you’ll learn to balance it in time! 🧡⁣ ⁣ ~~⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #iHopDestinations⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ~~⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣#living_europe #igerseurope #womenwhoexplore, #travelinladies #girlsthatwander #dametraveler #ourplanetdaily⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #iamatraveller #mydomainetravels #suitcasetravels #letsgosomewhere #livecolorfully #TLpicks #tandctravel #theprettycities #beautifuldestinations ⁣⁣⁣#finditliveit

Discover what to do on the stunning island of Mauritius Mauritius may seem like a small island to many but this country packs a punch when it comes to amazing national parks with breathtaking views, pristine white beaches and a fab mix of cultures to experience when it comes to the food! The unique mix of Indian, Creole, African and European influences make the dishes here outstanding, tasty yet not spicy. You can always adjust the spiciness to your liking but adding a range of chutneys and chili pastes available here as well! The locals are friendly, welcoming and eager to show you around. It is one of the best locations to visit if you're a tea-lover as there's acres and acres of tea estates and colonial houses to explore! While the main island may seem small and can be traversed from end-to-end in about 3 hours, there's a lot you can do here. If you still find it busy, Mauritius has even smaller outer islands nearby, which are even less busy and stunning like Rodrigues! #mayMauritius #discovermauritus #mauritius #mauritiusisland Pic taken by: @jepapote
