I don’t think I’ve ever seen beaches as pristine as in the Galapagos. (#ad) 🌴 Just check out how turquoise those waters are, and how white the sand is. The visibility when snorkeling was usually crystal clear, and during the entire week-long trip I saw only one single piece of litter. It was a plastic bottle floating near the beach, which I made sure to scoop up to throw away properly. 🌊 It really is incredible how the Galapagos National Park has made conservation a main focus across the entire destination — vs simply a hotel or a tour company being eco-friendly. 🐢 The result? Pure paradise -- which you can see by swiping right! 😍👉 A big thanks to @AndandoTours for sponsoring my trip to the Galapagos aboard the M/Y Passion! #BeyondTheGuidebook ___ * * * #VisitGalapagos #responsibletravel #Galapagoswildlife #galapagosluxury #galapagoscruise #galapagos #galapagosislands #galapagos_islands #galapagosisland #galapagos🐢#galapagostravel #ecuadortravel #ecuadortravel_ig #southamericatravel #southamericatravels #marineiguanas #Lizardsofinsta #lizardsofinstagram #turquoisewater #galapagosbeach #santacruzisland #turquoisewaters #turquoisewaters🌊#whitesandbeach #stunningbeaches #maketimetoseetheworld

Grateful for my photo tour guests who keep me on my feet and ensure I never miss a New York moment. 🎉 We had so much fun playing in the snow and enjoying the beauty of Central Park blanketed in white (because, let’s be honest, if I hadn’t been leading a tour I would have been in my pjs on the couch!). ❄️ ___ #NYCInAFlash @nycphototour ___ . . . #BeyondTheGuidebook #centralparkmoments #centralparknyc #centralparknewyork #nycwinter #newyorkwinter #snowinnyc #snowday❄️ #centralparkphotography #centralparkphotographer #manhattanphoto #manhattanphotographer #manhattanphotography #nycphotography #nycphotographers

A Fun Guide To Walking The Manhattan Bridge (Itinerary Included!)

I’ll provide some of my favorite recommendations as a local New Yorker and an NYC tour guide who leads New York City photo tours around Manhattan and Brooklyn. To walk across the Manhattan Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn you’ll begin in Chinatown. -Spend time in Brooklyn Bridge Park, which offers some of the best NYC skyline views for free — including views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge at the same time! The Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge are both bridge walk options, so consider walking back to Manhattan across the bridge you haven’t experienced yet.

SO MUCH FUN! 🎉 Saw unicorns. Walked through the trippy mushroom forest. Heard prehistoric dinosaurs roar. Wandered into the mouth of a giant caterpillar -- though I think my favorite of the installations was this one. 😮 The @luminocityfestival -- an immersive and festive light installation park in NYC -- is definitely a unique holiday outing. 🎊 You can see video clips from the night in my IG Stories @jessieonajourney! #BeyondTheGuidebook #luminocityfestival #LumiAdventure ___ * * * #luminocitynyc #nycholidays #holidaysinnyc #randallsisland #trippyvideos #trippynation #trippyvibes #newyorkcityattractions #thingstodoinnyc #nycchristmas

This Recipe Sharing Platform Supports Women The Culinary Industry

If you’re looking for an online recipe sharing platform that also supports women in the culinary industry and gives back to charity, then you’ll absolutely want to get Story Plate on your radar. According to Nation’s Restaurant News, about 53% of entry-level positions in the food industry were held by women in 2018, up from 49% in 2017; however, as women move up the ranks those figures change drastically. The study found that the rate of leadership roles (manager, senior manager/director, vice president and C-suite) for women has declined annually — with women representing just 18% of the food industry’s C-suite executives in 2018, down from 23% in 2017. I’m so grateful for all of the Story Plate Culinary Contributors that see the value in our work and have chosen to share their stories and recipes with us so that together we can make a positive impact in the lives of others through charitable donations!” Click here to download a Story Plate recipe and be a part of this impact.

If there is one thing I’ve learned during my time building an online travel business, it’s that mindset can make or break you. ✨ Your mindset holds your beliefs, and what you believe can have a huge impact on reaching your goals and making things happen. I can say honestly that everything from having the courage to book my first solo trip to believing in myself that I could build a sustainable blogging business took the right mindset. ✨ To be honest I think mindset is something too many travelers trying to build their location independent empire ignore. I know I did in the early days of Jessie on a Journey. I spent so much time just trying to get everything DONE that I never stopped to check in to see how I was; if I was actually in the right place mentally to allow growth. ✨ Anyway, I’ll stop there because I don’t want to give all my thoughts away here. Instead, click on over to The Profitable Travel Blogger Podcast to hear my story of how I got into travel blogging -- and my favorite hack for overcoming limiting thoughts. ✨ Link here or in bio (the podcast is linked on the Insta Freebies page) 👉 ✨ ps - I actually launched this podcast a few months ago, but am only just finding the time to create the graphics to promote it on Instagram! 🤣#TPTBP ___ * * * #mindfulmorning #mindfulmornings #miraclemorning #miraclemornings #selfcarepage #selfcarecoach #selfcaredaily #mentalclarity #changeyourlifestyle #changeyourlifetoday #bloggerswanted #influencerswanted #influencermarketing #influencerlife #geniusbloggerstoolkit #startablog #learntoblog #bloggergirl #bloggerlifestyle #digitalnomadlife #digitalnomadwomen #digitalnomadfamily #laptoplifestyleliving #bloggingtips #bloggingadvice #bloggingcommunity #blogginggals #bloggingsuccessfully

20 Embarrassing Travel Stories That Will Make You Laugh & Blush

I’d been swimming at a local beach on Mexico’s Pacific Coast almost every day without any problems, floating lazily in the waves with the sun on my face and not a care in the world. Free entry — but most importantly free drinks — was only available for a limited time, and I now had only 45 minutes to get down The Strip and into the pool of the MGM Grand if I wanted to secure my free wristband. One of my most embarrassing travel moments was the time when I was locked out of my room in Hong Kong during Chinese New Year. Luckily the people in the adjourning room came to check out the noise of me trying to break down the door and gave me the number of the guy who had shown me to the room.

There are a few reasons why you should listen to this episode of The Profitable Travel Blogger Podcast: * 1) If you're someone who is trying to make the work-from-anywhere lifestyle a reality, but are having trouble mapping out a path to make it happen, this episode of #TPTBPodcast will help you do just that. * 2) During the month of January, I'm donating $1 for every review left for the podcast on iTunes to WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organisation. (Up to $500). You can swipe up in my Instagram Stories or visit the following link to listen in and leave a review. * LINK: * 3) Not related to the podcast, but between January 21-23 I'll be donating 50% of my course revenue to WIRES, as well.

You can click the link in my bio and then choose an opt-in freebie to subscribe through to be notified! * I cry every single time I read another article about how these bushfires are decimating the country, and I'm extremely concerned reading about how scientists are noting that over 1 billion animals have been killed and how a number of species may go extinct. My heart goes out to everyone in Australia right now. ❤️ ___ * * * #bloggingpodcast #donatetoaustralia #travelblogging #bloggerswanted #influencerswanted #startablog #learntoblog #bloggergirl #bloggerlifestyle #digitalnomadlife #digitalnomadwomen #digitalnomadfamily #laptoplifestyleliving #bloggingtips #bloggingadvice #bloggingcommunity #blogginggals #bloggingsuccessfully #helpaustralia #helpaustralianwildlife #wireswildliferescue

“Just look at the ceiling and smile, you are still awake, you’re still there. A million people did not wake up in the morning and you woke up and for many, many millions of people somebody who is dear to them did not wake up. It’s a fantastic day.” - @sadhguru ✨ I heard this during my morning meditation using @insighttimer. The meditation was actually more of a nugget of wisdom shared by Sadhguru, who is known for his inspiring @sadhguru_quotes. ✨ Honestly, these words made my heart stop. There is a lot of talk about gratitude, but, at least for me, it can be challenging to live with gratitude beyond the morning moments journaling about it. After completing my morning rituals I get sucked into work projects, busy NYC life, racing to airports, and life routines. Even when traveling, I can become so focused I need to remind myself to be thankful for the life I’ve created for myself. ✨ During his chat, called “Do This One Thing To Live Blissfully,” Sadhguru recommends taking time to observe. Though for me that’s where the challenge comes; not with “observing” but “taking the time.” Like with many things in life, I think we can reap more benefits if we can just *slowwwwwwwww* *dowwwwwwwwwn*. ✨ Slow down to be thankful, to observe, to imagine, to ponder, to love, to laugh, to envision, to create, to BREATHE. And most of all, to give gratitude that you are here. 🙏 Photo taken at the cutest darn airbnb ever in the Catskills. 😊 #BeyondTheGuidebook #DontWonderWhatIf #SetOffOnYourJourney ___ * * * #sadhguruquotes #InsightTimer #sadhguru #sadhgurugrace #sadhguru🙏#ImOnAJourneyMyself #EmbraceTheJourney #ImOnAJourney #ImOnAJourneyYall #creativity_love #creativityeveryday #creativityloves💕#Keepittoyourself #PositivelyPresent #positively #newyearnewyou #newyearnewyou2019 #selfgrowthjourney #selfgrowth🌱#embracechange #embracechanges #ShesWanderful #MyLifeOOO #quotestoinspire #quotess #insighttimerapp #morningrituals
