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

21 Travel Horror Stories You'll Be Glad You're Not Telling

It’s a funny travel story when I talk about it now, although at the time I could already picture YouTube videos of the camel picking me up by my head and tossing me around like doll. I was so excited to finally get to Koh Tao in Thailand and enjoy some time on the beach; however, my time on this island actually turned out to be one of my worst and most itchy travel memories. You are able to visit the park in your own car or with a tour guide on a 4-by- 4; however it’s best to go with a tour guide, as it’s the safest way One of my worst travel stories is from a truly terrible night that happened when we were backpacking through Vietnam and we decided to take an overnight 15-hour bus ride to get to our next destination.

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

31 Uniquely New York Experiences That Shouldn't Be Missed

From the skyscrapers of Manhattan to the shores of Queens, there are few places on earth quite like New York City. Though City Hall Station is no longer an official stop on the New York City Subway, it’s still a popular destination for both tourists and locals. It’s a City starring iconic New Yorker Fran Lebowitz, this miniature model of New York City was originally built for the 1964 World’s Fair. You can also use this map to search for local stays and experiences: Check out these fun tours in New York City from my affiliate partner, Viator: Click here for a full list of NYC tours.

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

12 India Travel Stories From The Crazy To The Inspiring

Despite this being one of my more embarrassing travel stories, it wasn’t long before most of the other passengers were mad at me because the air conditioning wouldn’t work with the windows up. On the morning of August 3rd, 2019, after spending the past five days falling in love with the culinary and temple delights of Amritsar, we were finally ready to leave incredible India and cross the Wagah Border that separates the Indian city of Amritsar from the Pakistani city of Lahore. While accustomed to tourists visiting the Wagah Border to see the famous daily border closing ceremony, it seemed to be the first time he’d encountered riders looking to actually be left at the border. It’s hard to believe I started in Delhi, almost afraid to leave my hotel room, and finished in Varanasi, feeling like I could travel anywhere solo.

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

52 Most Instagrammable Places in New York City

Located above one of the tiniest streets in the city, this small pedestrian bridge connects two classic brick buildings in Tribeca and gives you a sense of what the city looked like in the late 1800s for a taste of old New York. Seen as a “quintessential symbol of New York City,” the Flatiron Building’s unique design makes it a perfect spot for classic NYC photos. One of NYC’s latest and greatest luxury hotels, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge’s location at Brooklyn Bridge Park makes it the perfect place to capture the Lower Manhattan skyline in style. The Coney Art Walls, an outdoor museum of colorful murals and street art on Stillwell Avenue, are also a favorite among New York City Instagramers.

“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
