PICTURE-PERFECT VIEWS OF THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE 🌁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Golden Gate is the most iconic place in San Francisco and a trip here is not complete without the perfect photo at the most photographed bridge in the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌁 Battery Spencer⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌁 Golden Gate Overlook⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌁 Marshall’s Beach⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌁 On the actual bridge⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌁 Golden Gate Postcard Viewpoint (picture above)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you been here? Is it on your bucket list?

Facts about me that usually surprise people. 1. I have never been to a club in my life. 2. I like to eat at night. Apparently, I replace clubs with this. There is only a subtle moment of calorie counting: where to write down what I ate at night? Is it still today or is it tomorrow? Is there a write-off? How to calculate VAT? Moreover, an interesting fact: the probability of a night hike to the refrigerator does not depend on the density of dinner. 3. I never do make up, except for taking photos. I don’t like this business, well, or I’m too lazy - call it what you want. Rather, both + I like my appearance the way it is. 4. I do not like hypocrites and liars. The gut always tells you that the person is lying. In any case, lies always come up, so why lie? 5. I travel the world 12 months a year, not because I want to, but because: a) this is how I make money; b) it helps not to drown in depression. Each of us has had difficulties in life. I think you understand me. I love to travel but wouldn't mind doing it a little less. 6. I would like to be dumber sometimes. Or at least settle for less. And not to understand that I can do more-better-more. I have enough motivation and energy for ten more people around, but sometimes it hurts me myself. Will I ever catch this calmness and peace that I strive for? I don’t know. 7. I am allergic to animals. It's a pity. It wouldn't be so lonely. 8. I believe in people. It would be better if there were no allergies, honestly! 9. I do not believe in a large number of friends. Acquaintances, yes, but not friends. 10. I think that it’s not pasta that makes you fat, but tight t-shirts ;)

Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas! 💃🏻🥂 We had to wait for an hour in a line to take this pic, so I hope it is worth it. It was 104 °F! A lot of people are taking photos here even with their suitcases right after (or before 🤔) a flight. Would you wait for an hour to take an Instagram photo?

26! 🎂🥂 Thanks, by the way, to my mother, who is with me on this endless journey, she had her birthday yesterday, so we’re getting older together and I realise that if she can be a homeless nomad in her early 50s, then I’ll be strong enough to do it too! Because the only difference between 16 and 26 and 56 is that you have to buy one more set of candles;) Thank you @ritzcarltonsanfrancisco for making this day unforgettable! #RCMemories #RitzCarltonSanFrancisco

Take this mountain weight. Take these ocean tears. Hold me through the trial. Come like hope again. 🎶

What happens in @virginhotelslv, stays in @virginhotelslv ;) The only place where eating pizza and drinking champagne at 8am is socially acceptable. Start your day right, at least when you are on vacation! #VirginHotelsLV #LasVegas

ONE OF THE MOST PHOTOGRAPHED SPOTS IN CENTRAL CALIFORNIA⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bixby Bridge is a must see on your next California road trip. It’s without a doubt one of those places that takes your breath away. It’s located on Highway 1 and it has some of the best views in Central California where you can enjoy a perfect sunset.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A great photo spot is Castle Rock Viewpoint, just north of the bridge. It offers a stunning view of the ocean, with the bridge and the mountains in the back. You can pull over at the designated area and from there walk the paths on both sides of the bridge to get different views.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, if you are a fan of Big Little Lies, you may recognize this spot⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who would like to watch a sunset here? 🙋🏻‍♀️

Cultivating Dolce far Niente: the sweetness of doing nothing in @venetianvegas ;) Italians always know how to live their better lives! So do I. And mine is in Las Vegas. #VenetianVegas #LasVegas

In Vegas it feels like being in the Hangover and Ocean's 11 at the same time. ⠀ Vegas was founded only 117 years ago and is located in the desert. Nothing is cheap here except hotels. They can be 20$ or even 15$ per night! The logic is simple: everyone who comes to Vegas plays. The casino is the hotel. And the casino never loses ;) But these hotels are unusual ones. Every hotel is a separate country or city! There is Egypt, and Venice, and Paris, and New York. And it's not just names! The architects built replicas of popular sights that can be found in these cities. For example, this is a half-scale replica of the famous Parisian Eiffel Tower! During these days we managed to: ⠀ 1. Travel to national parks 2. Win money 3. Lose money ;) 4. Walk around the city and go to the fountain show 5. Check out local restaurants 6. Go to an Imagine Dragons concert 7. Drink a few bottles of champagne 8. Gondola ride 9. Go to a show 10. Take a photo at the “Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas” sign ⠀ Sin City is fabulous, let's move on! But there will be more posts from Vegas ;) What else can I tell you about Las Vegas?

I travel the world searching for something, but I can't find it. Maybe myself.

Our life depends on our attitude towards it and the angle of view from which we look at it. There is no right and wrong. ⠀ Sometimes it seems to me that I went the wrong way, and then it turns out that it was even better that way. ⠀ If you knew how long your last relationship would last, would you start it? Or if you knew in advance that the occupation (education/hobby/work) to which you devoted the last years would not bear fruit, would you still go this way? ⠀ When choosing "do it, but fail or not do it and think 'what if...'", I choose "do it". ⠀ Kiss, say, fly, agree, jump. ⠀ And whatever one may say, it's better than sitting and staring blankly at how others live their lives the way you would dream. ⠀ Do it.

3 EPIC THINGS TO DO IN PAGE 🏜​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ Page is a small town in Arizona that offers many cool things to do. I highly recommend making a stop here in your next Southwest roadtrip.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ 📍 Horseshoe Bend: it’s located in the Glen Canyon Recreation Area and it’s absolutely stunning! It’s just 1.5 miles roundtrip so it’s super easy to do.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ 📍 Antelope Canyon: it’s located on Navajo land and you must book a tour to visit it. Even though there are plenty of free slot canyons out there, these ones are gorgeous! The way the light comes through the canyon is breathtaking.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ 📍 Lake Powell: it’s also located in the Glen Canyon Recreation Area. When I came, I visited Lone Rock Beach and just laid down and relax but you can also do paddle-boarding, kayaking or take a boat.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ SAVE this post to plan your next roadtrip​​​​​​​​!

Hello from Vegas! Have you been to this crazy place? I only take the essentials with me when I travel. And most importantly, I don’t forget the @bandolierstyle phone case. It is so convenient that you can put a driver’s license in it and hang it on your shoulder so you’ll never lose it. You can climb Antelope Canyon in Arizona, dance at the Imagine Dragons concert, or take photos in front of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign. You can also choose different straps for your case and change them according to your mood! Tell me HALF A YEAR ago that my travels will be 12 months a year... I would have laughed, but everything changes. I didn’t even notice how my life turned into a “suitcases-airplane-new place-oh my god this is amazing!-suitcases-airplane-new place” mode. Let our Vegas adventures begin!
