My blog post about what to do and see in Ipoh, Malaysia is up. Link in bio 🥳
It includes a section on the history of the lanes previously know as Wife Lane, Concubine Lane and First Concubine Lane (pictured). I’d love for you to read back and any feed back would be appreciated! I hope you find it useful and maybe even make it a bit tempting for you to visit! #ipoh#marketlane#malaysia#travelblogger
Purple love 💜 | While fall is coming to South Korea, spring has sprung in the south hemisphere! Jacarandas are in full bloom on Reunion Island, and soon, Flamboyant will follow. I love how colourful is the island at this time of the year and I'm happy to find some time to enjoy it despite my busy schedule 💻📚🗓️💒👰🏻 (D-7 btw!).

One of my favorite parts of going to a museum is feeling like I’m stepping back in time. From going through trains from a 100 years ago to seeing old posters hung up, the feeling of walking through history is one that I always tend to gravitate to. Whether it’s museums, old streets, and even certain cities, when history is in the air.. count me in. 🚂
It’s hard for me to put into words what we experienced in Marsh Harbor, Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian. This is disaster relief, not a medical mission. I’ll stress that first. This relief mission was filled with a lot of grief, sadness, and darkness, as opposed to the joyfulness that surrounds us often on medical missions. This is NOT to discount the gratefulness I have for being able to care for these amazing, resilient citizens when they most need it...
We weren’t informed of the looting & assaults until we got down there, when Dr T & I started seeing the headlines on every single newspaper in Nassau- “looting suggests possible curfew on Abaco island.” Im sure it was just an oversight- nonetheless, this led me to enforce some impromptu safety rules to our team once we arrived to our destination. Still, everyone was kept safe & sound on our little cots in the clinic..despite the military patrolling around us with MS16s out & blazing as we went to brush our teeth in our PJs down the hall (“good morning sir!!!”), despite the nightly pounding on emergency exit doors throughout the night as I crawled out of my cot to peer out our bedroom door while my girls were curled up sleeping cozily 😴 (Dr T was in his own room down the corridors). ⠀
And despite all this, we had an amazing mission. We went to three outer islands to provide assistance, as well as fully running our own clinic- the ONLY clinic on Abaco island, actually. We provided care on all levels, including emergency, psych, & preventative care.
As I grieve over the lives lost, the Haitian migrants hiding from care in fear of being sent back to Haiti, the lack of psychological support, & the tons of heartbreaking stories we heard from our patients, I must say that this relief was life changing & reinforces my future as a global health nurse leader. I had the best team in the world (see: awkward team photo last) & I really couldn’t have done this without you guys

Rural Bali Nature Adventure with Purification Blessing
Visiting local’s house is the part of Bali Rural Life experience.
Pak Darma will explain each part of Balinese house and how its built. This is the right moment to dig more about Balinese Architecture and see how it reflects on their daily life.
You will also learn the hierarchy and the relationship between God, Environment and Human.
Move to the Balinese Kitchen area called ‘Paon’ you will amaze with the antique yet traditional stuff that Balinese use for cooking. They will also show you how to make the coconut oil and “Jaja Uli”; a famous Balinese snack which is made from rice which is also used as offering. As offering is a part of Balinese life, here you can learn how they made offerings and what to put to make it worthy to presents.
I have been talking about New Zealand with a friend today. After our chat I could not stop thinking about my previous travels in this phenomenal country. When I went there 3 years ago, I knew it was supposed to be beautiful but I could have never imagined how beautiful and diverse it actually is! If you ever get the chance to go, then GO! You can’t imagine what kind of beautiful nature and (mostly) warm hearted locals are going to welcome you. It is definitely on my list AGAIN. I love just love it.
Thanks @harrisonpalmer_ for helping me dig up all these good memories and entertaining and talking to me while I’m stuck in a hospital again 🌞
I saw this on LinkedIn the other day and just thought it was such a well thought out ethos to try and live by. I think it is becoming increasingly important to be aware of our impact on the planet and I’m debating pledging to a year of being flight free as I am lucky enough to live in the UK and so do have access to a lot of mainland Europe by train or coach journey. I know this isn’t suitable for everyone but I know it is one of the biggest s habits we can change after eating meat to help reduce our carbon footprint. Also I love exploring new far flung places and so would be seriously restricted by this pledge but I think it is possibly one worth making.
Also I’m not sure where this post came from originally but I would love to give credit to the original author. Update - it is from @treadright and I have signed up to their travel pledge #maketravelmatter#ethicaltravel#maketravelmatterpledge#travelblogger
After a long day of driving in the Swedish countryside. Making food, drinking beers with good friends next to the fire while the bright moon was rising above the trees. That was a good moment.

Sunsets have always been a reminder to me that there’s only so much we can do in a day. The beauty in it is that regardless of how much we did or didn’t do, once the sun goes down, it’s no definite end to the progress we’ve made. Because tomorrow, the sun always rises and we have another opportunity to make the most of our time. Tomorrow always comes but it means more when you make the most out of today. Tried something a bit different today with this first edit! Sending positive vibes to everyone who sees this ☀️ #eyesoftheisles

„I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you‘re proud of. If you find that you‘re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.“✨- F. Scott Fitgerald
I’ve seen countless sunsets. But if I had to pick my favorite place for a sunset - this would be it. Malapascua in the Philippines. What a gift.🙌
Where’s your favorite sunset spot? 🤗
