Last week I had the pleasure of speaking at the Ascend 2021 Conference by @applevacations 🎤 I was on a panel about how influencers can help travel agents with my friend Gabby from @packslight and content creator extraordinaire @gabeflowers 🧳 We were joined by celebrity guest star @carsonkressley who has such a natural way of breaking the ice and is so funny! 😆 I’m grateful to be back to in-person speaking engagements and will be on the stage again this Friday in Denver 🏔 Ready for 2023 to be the year of conferences! Missed gathering in groups of travel-loving people ✈️ Now the important question — do you watch Carson on Queer Eye or Rupaul’s Drag Race? 🤩 . . . . #ascendalgv21 #publicspeaker #publicspeakers #publicspeaking #speakersofinstagram #speakerlife #speakingengagement #travelconference #carsonkressley #panelist #socialmediaexpert #influencermarketing #bloggersofig #womenspeakers #womenwhospeak

A lot of people are nervous about traveling again… I get it! #Ad With testing requirements, quarantine, planning around what’s open or not, it can be very stressful 😰 That’s where using a travel agent can help 🌴 Normally, I’m a do-it-yourselfer, but times have changed and sometimes the stress of planning a vacation takes away from the vacation itself. This week, I have had every single detail taken care of by @applevacations, from the excursions to the meals to the split-down-the-middle crab legs 🦀 If you want someone else to take on all the work while you just enjoy, use a trusted travel advisor like Apple Vacations. They give you the best advice at the right price! Thank you for hosting me on this mini getaway to Mexico. The past few days have been paradise and such a welcome reprieve from reality 🙏 Check out my stories to see more of what I’ve been up to! . . . . . #ascendalgv21 #applevacations #travelagentsrock #travelplanning #vacationplanning #vacationtrip #vacationtips #vacationtimes #vacationready #islamujeresmexico #islamujeres #cancunbeach #cancun2021 #mexicotrip #mexicotravels

New article alert! 🚨 I am so proud of this piece highlighting the macro mural projects in Puerto Rico by @pintalto 🎨 Located in 5 neighborhoods throughout the island, they have transformed residential communities into outdoor art galleries 🖼 They’re specifically placed in neighborhoods considered “dangerous” or “undesirable” and are driving traffic beyond the capital city of San Juan. The project has not only altered buildings from the outside, but the spirit of the residents who have renewed pride in their homes 🏡 It is a testament to the power of art and shows that new life, and hope, are always just around the corner. I encourage you to have a read! Link in bio ✍️ Have you ever heard of this macro mural project? . . . . . #macromural #pintalto #yaucromatic #yauco #puertoricogram #puertoricoholic #puertorico_greatshots #discoverpuertorico #placespuertorico #puertoricotravel #streetartpuertorico #puertoricoblogger #puertoricolife #puertoricoart #hashtagpuertorico

I feel so incredibly blessed as of late 🙏 To the point that a speeding ticket, cancelled flight and lost bag all in the last 48 hours can’t even faze me! Some of the things that have me walking around in a pink bubble include: - The opportunity to do a job I love - The privilege of traveling the world and connecting with others - The luxury of staying in beautiful places - The love of a supportive, sexy man - The confidence to ask for what I’m worth, and a bank account that reflects it - Progress on self-development, compassion and grace - Finally feeling like I have a home base - A community of like-minded friends and colleagues I could go on! This has been a year where so many of things I’d been dreaming of came to fruition 💕 I’m soaking in every minute of it! What’s one thing you’re grateful for this morning? 😌 . . . . . #gratitudedaily #gratitudeistheattitude #gratitudeisamust #gratefulforlife #travelcontentcreator #travelbloggergirl #womenwhoblog #bloggersofig #creatorcommunity #contentcreative #creativewomencommunity #womenbloggers #travelbloggerlifestyle #travelwriters

Wadi Mujib is the lowest nature reserve in the world! It’s a hike through a river in a canyon that reaches a waterfall at the end. I figured to get there I would just need to trek through ankle deep water… No big deal, right?? Wrong! 🤦🏻‍♀️ I was super unprepared for this hike, let me count the ways… I wore a white shirt. Getting drenched said THAT was a bad idea 💦 I didn’t have a bathing suit. Wet bra and underwear said THAT was a bad idea 👙 I let my braid down halfway through figuring it would be better to gather my hair when soaking wet.. Ha! 🤣 I had to trek up several mini waterfalls to get to the main one. Felt like a salmon swimming upstream 🏊‍♀️ But I made it and at the end it was a pretty cool experience. Swipe to see the before and after ➡️ Have you ever hiked through a river? . . . . . #wadimujib #wadimujibadventure #shareyourjordan #visitjordan #jordantraveler #naturereserve #hikingadventures #canyonhike #jordanadventure #hikinggirls #girlsthathike #womenwhotravel #girlswhoadventure #adventurewomen #traveladventure

3 reasons why now is actually the BEST time to visit Jordan 🐫 1️⃣ You can visit a World Wonder without the massive crowds (an Insta dream!) 📷 2️⃣ Most attractions are outdoors with plenty of space for distancing, from the desert to the Dead Sea 🌅 3️⃣ You will feel renewed staring at the stars at night instead of watching doom & gloom on TV ✨ And if you’re looking for a place to stay while visiting, make sure to put the @deadseamarriott on the top of your list!

Is Jordan safe for solo female travelers? 🇯🇴 The answer is a big, resounding YES! I picked Jordan as my introduction to the Middle East because of the amazing things I’d read in female traveler groups. Here’s are some quick tips: - Driving is doable but having a driver is even better. They save time, can offer translation, and know all the best routes; - There’s no strict dress code and foreigners wear what they want but to be respectful, make sure your shoulders and knees are covered; - You will have people trying to sell you things left and right. Know that there’s a tourist price and a local price and the two are drastically different. This is also where having a driver comes in handy! Have you ever been to the Middle East? 🌍 . . . . . . #solofemaletravel #solofemaletraveler #solofemaletraveller #solotraveler #womenwhotravel #womentravelsolo #womentravelalone #middleeasttravel #travelmiddleeast #jordantravel #jordantraveler #jordantourism #visitjordan #shareyourjordan #soloadventures

They call Montana Big Sky Country and it’s not hard to see why! 🌈 I saw so many rainbows while driving around the state — full arcs, double rainbows, some of the brightest I’ve ever seen 😍 Rainbows are a symbol of hope and better things to come 🙏 This impromptu roadside stop was a good reminder that beauty is where you choose to see it. Do you see a lot of rainbows where you live? 💕 . . . . . #montanamoment #bigskycountry #bigskymontana #bigskymt #montanasky #rainbowinthesky #chasingrainbows #montanacolors #montanaisbeautiful #montanaphotography #naturemoments #naturemagic #naturetravel #travelmoments

Have you ever dreamt of sleeping under the stars? 🌟 There are several camps in the Wadi Rum desert, but none compares to @aichaluxury 😍 This is a solar powered resort with panoramic glass domes. While bubble domes have become popular in recent years, the plastic ones aren’t great for the environment… At Memories Aicha you don’t have to worry about that, because everything they do is top quality 👌 They have the best accommodations with lush bedding, custom blackout curtains and en suite bathrooms 🛌 They have the best food, with over a dozen or so different dishes prepared by the executive chef daily for breakfast and dinner (all you can eat—for free!!) 🍽 They have the best astrophotography (also free!!) 📸 I went out two nights in a row to marvel at Jupiter, Mars, the Milky Way and the North Star 🪐 Basically, I am spoiled to desert camps after this trip 😆 If you’re a fan of night skies, you need to add Aicha to your list! 💯 . . . . . #visitjordan #shareyourjordan #memoriesaichaluxurycamp #memoriesaicha #aichaluxurycamp #sleepingunderthestars #nightskies #darkskies #stargazing #glassdome #wadirumdesert #wadirumjordan #desertstars #stargazers #astrophotos
