I pulled up to this gas station outside of Angkor Wat to get our small tuk tuk more gas โ›ฝ๏ธ. She said each bottle was for a single vehicle. The station wasnโ€™t what I expected and I had the most interesting conversation with this young women. Being able to fill up my tank for all of $20.99 has been the highlight of my new year !! FYI: the gas here was only a fraction of what I pay in the states ! Lol I canโ€™t help to think about how everyday mundane tasks here have become an exciting learning opportunity some place else. Thatโ€™s what travel does for me -elevates and challenges my perception of life and everyday experiences. .

๐ŸฅดHave you ever tried something unfamiliar while traveling? Donโ€™t be afraid to try new things. . . I remember walking past this $2 โ€œspaโ€ fish pedicure and immediately thought โ€œThatโ€™s weird and gross but YOLO!!โ€ It tickled, felt strange and I canโ€™t say Iโ€™d do it again but my feet have never felt smoother but getting over the sensation and constantly cringing is a whole other story ! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿฅด . . . . . . . #adventurer #melanin #melaninonthego #blackandabroad #travelnoire #travelgram #roadto100countries #cambodia #travelmoreworryless #travelblogger #travel #travelholic #wegotoo #selfcare #selflove #trysomethingnew #melaninpoppin #melaninonthego #yolo #somethingnew #blacktravelmovement #blacktravelfeed #ladiesgoneglobal #melaninqueens #sunkissed #travelphotography #traveldiaries #girlonthego #melaninmajority #naturalista at Siem Reap, Cambodia,ๆšน็ฒ’๏ผŒๆŸฌๅŸ”ๅฏจ

I remember when getting my Masters in Teaching I literally invited No One and barely mentioned it (luckily some people just showed up lol ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‚), little to say many of the people who cared about me were very upset๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿ˜ถ. Here is my attempt at being better ๐Ÿ˜‚! . . This past year I worked really hard to Become a Board Certified Behavior Analysts. As an independent practitioner I can provide behavior-analytic services to a wide range of skill sets but my main focus is working with Autistic Youth. Iโ€™m so happy to have a career that combines my passions of education and psychology while still allowing me the flexibility to travel freely. After studying while still trying to balance friends , family, self care/traveling and overall wellness I truly feel at ease โ˜บ๏ธ. . . Thank you to all that gave me encouragement and support throughout this process through texts, calls, drinks, work out partners, meals, companionship, or by just radiating your positive energy and unwavering faith in me. It meant more to me than you will EVER know. . . And Now in true Christiana form I will plan a trip to celebrate and strategize 2019 goals and adventures. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘‘ . -Christiana Turner, MAT, BCBA. . . . . . . #proud #bcba #melaninmagic #happiness #travel #travelblogger #travelmore #travelmoreworryless #girlonthego #education #aba #newadventures #purposedrivenlife #purpose #grateful #selfcare #lifeisgood #autism #autismawerness #findyourpassion #consultant #melanin #melaninonthego #lifesaboutbalance #excited #hardworkpaysoffs #girlpower #boss #girlboss

Hey Yโ€™all!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ Happy Holidays! . . I typically refrain from traveling during the holiday season to avoid crowds and inflated prices . But sometimes traveling to a different environment is the best way I can practice self care and get clarity. What are some of your philosophyโ€™s around holiday travel? Do you have any holiday traditions? . . Honestly, the holidays can be hard. Can I get a witness?! This will be the first year I wonโ€™t be celebrating with my grandmother. I miss her dearly but I am grateful for so many wonderful memories we shared together. She took me on some of my first trips as a child. I am grateful for so many things and love the giving season and want to spread warmthโ€™s and love to others . Unfortunately, the only thing constant in life is change . But change can be amazing ! This year I am starting a new family tradition- Volunteering at a local Soup Kitchen for Christmas Eve. Sometimes the best way to cope with grief and loss is by creating new and lasting memories with the people that hold pieces of your heart and sharing your love and time with others. I know holidays can be tough but I always work to be happy. Never be afraid of change , KEEP MOVING FORWARD and continue to live in a world of wonder and possibilities. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ . . . . #happyholidays #travelforselfcare #christmas #happinessisachoice #keepmovingforward #thankfulthursday #thankful #melaninonthego #melaninpoppin #changeisgood #selfcare #traveling #holidaytravel #gratitude #blackandabroad #girlonthego #travelmore #iceland #blacktravelfeed #blacktravelgram #femaletravelbloggers #seetheworld #positivevibes #traveladdict #roadto100countries #wanderlust #sunkissed #illbehomeforchristmas #globaljetblack at Litla Jรณlabรบรฐin
