My perfect accessories for the beautiful Maldivian sunshine, thanks to @chanelofficial for the glasses and @etsy for the hat.
We have capped off a busy but truly special year. We began by planning our weddings in January 2019. I then joined together with the love of my life for our “I do’s” in September and we celebrated the merging of our two different but equally important cultures in our wedding party in October. We made it to our dream destination where I can finally wear my amazing hat and use my new surname.
Nameste Happy! 🧘🏼♀️🧘🏼♀️🧘🏼♀️
Today, I learned the spiritual meaning of Namaste. I would always say it in my yoga practice, but maybe I never truly knew what it meant!
Namaste literally means "bowing to you". In Hinduism, it has a spiritual reflection on the belief that "the divine and self is the same in you and me", and connotes "I bow to the divine in you". This acknowledges the soul in one another
This began reminding me of the South African saying, "Ubuntu". A person is not a person without other persons. So many cultures focus on compassion and virtue. There is this universal bond that connects all of humanity, and that is so beautiful 🥰
LETS GET TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER ✨
Hi guys, thank you so much for following along on my incredible journey. I’m so thankful that you’re all here. I’ve just realised I have never really introduced myself so here goes..
My name is Stacey, I am 27 years old and I was born and raised in the United Kingdom
When I left school I qualified as a dental nurse and worked in a private practice for a few years. However, the money was so bad that I could barely afford a yearly holiday. So I ended up getting a dead office job, that paid better money.
But my passion was always to travel the world. Towards the end of 2015 I met my boyfriend Bradley. In 2016, Bradley and I traveled around Thailand for three months. We had the best time of our lives. But he run out of money, so our trip had to come to an end.
We both went back to the U.K. and got jobs so that we could save to go traveling again. Saving was hard so during our time in the U.K. we traveled to six different countries together.
In 2018, I started teaching English as a foreign language to cute Chinese children. This was so I could make extra money for traveling. I worked 7 days per week for six months until one day I finally walked out of the office job that I hated and did the teaching full time.
In February 2019, I picked up my backpack and set off on an amazing adventure around South East Asia with my long term boyfriend Bradley.
We have been traveling for almost a year now, whilst both teaching English online and our life couldn’t be much better.

Have you ever been on holiday and had that feeling of being in love with the world every morning? ❤🌍⠀

“ROAD TRIPS ARE THE EQUIVALENT OF HUMAN WINGS. ASK ME TO GO ON ONE, ANYWHERE. WE’LL STOP IN EVERY SMALL TOWN AND LEARN THE HISTORY AND STORIES, FEEL THE GROUND, AND CAPTURE THE SPIRIT. THEN WE’LL TURN IT INTO OUR OWN STORY THAT WILL LIVE INSIDE OUR HISTORY TO CARRY WITH US, ALWAYS. BECAUSE STORIES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THINGS.” – VICTORIA ERICKSON
❤️I feel the most free and happy when I’m out here exploring! Do you road trip? How often?
SOUVENIRS D’IL Y A 4 ANS
Il y a 4 ans je me remettais d’une appendicite.. arrivée en Australie ! Après 3 mois à l’autre bout du monde, je me sentais pas très bien au travail, mais ne voulant rien savoir je continuais de travailler. Jusqu’au moment où je me suis écroulée après une semaine et que mon boss m’a forcée à prendre un Uber pour rentrer. -
Le lendemain matin je me décidais de prendre un taxi à 7h toute seule direction les urgences, sans trop savoir pourquoi car je n’étais pas si mal que ça. Intuition? Pressentiment? Bonne étoile? Peut importe. J’étais presque au stade de péritonite, il était temps. -
Le plus drôle dans l’histoire c’est que les termes médicaux au bout de 3 mois en Australie, et sous morphine, ça a été très compliqué ! -
Encore merci à mes amours de colocs d’être venus à l’hopital et de s’être occupé de ma convalescence ainsi qu’à mon boss qui a prit le temps de venir avec des cadeaux ! -
Très important : partez toujours avec une assurance voyage, j’ai failli payer 8000$ en plus des premiers 400$ pour les examens ! -
Et vous, vous avez des anecdotes de voyage ? .
MEMORIES FROM 4 YEARS AGO -
4 years ago I was recovering from appendicitis ..that happened in Australia! After 3 months on the other side of the world, I did not feel very well at work, but I did not want to stop anything so I continued to work. Until when I collapsed after a week and my boss forced me to take an Uber to go home. -
The next morning I decided to take a taxi at 7am all alone towards the emergencies without really knowing why because I wasn’t felling that bad. Intuition? Presentiment? Good star? Doesn’t matter. I was almost in the peritonitis stage, it was time. -
The funniest thing in this story is that the medical terms after 3 months in Australia, and on morphine, it was very complicated for me ! -
Thank you again to my lovely roommates for coming to the hospital and taking care of my recovery as well as to my boss who took time to come with gifts! -
Very important: always leave with travel insurance, I almost had to pay $ 8,000 in addition to the first $ 400 for exams! -
Do you have travel anecdotes?

🔥TODAY I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT CONFIDENCE 🔥
Ever since I got back from my trip to China and even while there, I discovered I have grown in confidence! I am not a very outgoing person by any means.
Don't get me wrong, I love meeting new people and hanging out with friends but I am also very hesitant when it comes to big groups and speaking out and doing things out of my comfort level.
However, lately I am trying new things and being more bold in talking to strangers, and even taking videos of myself (so out of my comfort zone!) As I said in my previous instagram post, confidence is one of my words for 2020 and I have never been more excited to continue to grow and be confident in who I am! ❤️ Do you exude confidence or is it something you are working on? What is something you did recently that was out of your comfort zone to help build confidence? 📸@xojustkeepswimming

Un salto nel passato. Gran bella struttura e interessante selezione di reperti.
Unica pecca, l'idea del QR Code al posto delle targhette identificative. Rende il tutto poco fruibile, scomodo e insensato dal momento che non si ha accesso a nessun contenuto multimediale o approfondimento di sorta. E molte delle etichette sono anche strappate, rendendo di fatto inutilizzabile il servizio. In pratica si lascia il visitatore a guardare le teche in balia della propria immaginazione.
In una parola: una ciofeca.
Va bene essere smart, ma con un po' di buonsenso.
Nota di merito alla gentilezza del personale. Loro sono stati di una squisitezza rara ❤

I’m happy people are realizing and posting about how precious life is.
Because it never fully hits you unless you’ve lost someone you love.
Or a celebrity dies.
I’m far too familiar with death. I had to deal and cope with it at the tender age of 7 when my grandparents were taken from us in a car crash. They were the biggest influences in my life at that time while my parents were being separated. My whole life was turned upside down and I was forced to continue living a “normal” life while never fully dealing with the pain. I went into into dark spirals in my teenage years and 28 years later, it’s still heavy in my heart.
I may have nothing to do with the families involved in Sunday’s accident, but I feel their pain and I know that it will never go away.
It’s so cliche but it is so true - never take life for granted - because until you’ve received that phone call that someone you love won’t ever be coming home, your entire world changes 💔
time for few fun facts just about myself 😊
1. i love math, science and arts
2. i was a scholar in hs & college, and a part-time tutor 👩🏻🏫

There are 2 things I miss when I see this photo - Bali and my long hair 😄😭 Kids, do not cut your hair! At first you will feel cool and be like ‘oh this is amazing, it was time for some change’ but months, if not weeks, later you will want your hair to grow back in the speed of lightning 😄 Reality check - you will lose your mind before they grow back haha 🙄
The first day of the Salkantay Trek was probably the most incredible day of our lives. If you have it in you, make sure you trek to Humantay Lake and up to the ridge. You'll be treated with an incredible vista 😍
Keep an eye out for condors, we were lucky to see one riding a draft of warm air high into the sky 🦅
How often are you celebrating your wins? Most people set a goal, reach it and then move right onto the next thing way too soon. Take time to reflect on where you started, the journey and effort put towards that goal, and REALLY celebrate it!
I was promoted this month. I’m really happy for the recognition and my new title but what I’m most excitedly about is that this came from my hustle in 2019! I hit my sales quota for the 4th time in 5 years at my company, and I did this while making my personal goals of traveling and writing more a priority. Now that I’ve acknowledged that is the real victory here, time to go update that LinkedIn! 🥂

You, Me and the Sea 🌊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Since travelling, we've actually realised how little it takes to make us happy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At the beach, this becomes even clearer. Alone with our thoughts on the soft sand with the sun shining on us, and the waves washing against the shore.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's so natural, and so beautiful. And no amount of money and no material objects can replace the warmth and happiness we find there.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We've come to understand that happiness is all about where you are and who you with – not money or possessions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're both truly happiest when it's just the two of us. Nick and Hollie. You, me and the sea.
Il posto perfetto per food, fashion e travel blogger 😜
Perché? Perché unisce piatti sia buoni che belli da fotografare ( categoria food-blogger ) 🥘
Perché la location spettacolare si presta molto bene a foto “stilose” 😎( categoria fashion-blogger e lifestyle)
Perché è un ristorante italiano che può essere inserito in un articolo dedicato a Parigi ( categoria travel-blogger )
Dove si trova? A Parigi ( nei pressi del Mouline Rouge )
Per entrare dovete arrivare “minimo” mezz’ora prima dell’orario di apertura. C’è molta affluenza sia a pranzo che a cena.
Tips: Il ristorante si sviluppa su 4 livelli, per assicurarvi un posto all’ultimo piano ( che è il più bello ) dovete armarvi di pazienza e mettervi in coda.
Noi per sicurezza ci siamo piazzati davanti all’ingresso alle 11.15 e c’erano già 5 persone davanti a noi. Immaginate a mezzogiorno la coda dov’era arrivata 🤣
Se la vostra intenzione è quella di scattare delle belle fotografie andateci a pranzo.📸
La maggior parte dei camerieri sono italiani, molti sono napoletani, quindi accoglienza🔝
È stato difficile scegliere tra queste 3 foto, infatti alla fine le abbiamo pubblicate tutte, mettendo per prima quella che secondo noi è “fotograficamente” inquadrata meglio. La maggioranza penserà: “ma se sono quasi uguali”! 😂😂😂 i perfezionisti invece capiranno.
Secondo voi qual è la più bella?
La 1 la 2 o la 3? ( cit. Mike Bongiorno ) 😜
Se andate a Parigi salvate questo posto/post 😋

Danang beach 🌊 || ☀️ One of the prettiest beach in danang, Vietnam; known for its silky smooth sand .
El viernes pasado, por primera vez, fui a un servicio en un centro budista con el fin de participar de las actividades del Año Nuevo Chino, el año nuevo lunar. El FGS Xiang Yun Temple, todos los años, organiza actividades durante un fin de semana completo para despedir el año viejo y recibir el nuevo. .
Así fue la celebración de la Víspera del Año Nuevo... entre ofrendas, incienso, cánticos, oraciones, mantras y, en un ambiente de paz, se despide al año en modo de meditación y agradecimiento. .
Pasa por mis historias, para que veas más de la celebración del año nuevo chino. .
