You know those days when it just feels like every little thing is not going as planned and you just need one little thing to put that smile back on your face?🙈😏🙏🏻 Well, this particular morning was one of them with the ATM eating my card, hardly any sleep, driving hours in the night and getting lost on one of the worst roads in Bali, unexpected mid-night traffic jams, scooter accidents, getting followed and harassed by locals, then missing the whole goal: sunrise....needless to say we were a tad over it when we got off our scooters. But like a shiny bundle of joy, this little munchkin appeared and melted all the stress away!!!🐶🙌🏻💖 Now it’s just another one of those travel stories to look back and laugh on!😂🙈PS- how cute is he?! Wish I could have kidnapped him and his little family back on the scooter with me!!💕😍 ::::::::::::::::: LOVE my new outfit from @bringsportswear 🙌🏻 The puppy matched my outfit too!! ::::::::::::::::: 📷 @okilde ::::::::::::::::: #balicili #explorebali #balilife #balilivin #indtravel #folkindonesia #balidaily #puppiesofig #girlslovetravel #thetravelwomen #speechlessplaces #girlsthatwander #iamtb #girlgetters #thebalibible #indotravellers #welivetoexplore #globeshotz #womenwhoexplore #ladiesgoneglobal #puppylover #girlsborntotravel #shetravelz #theglobalgirls #adventurista #youdotravel #natgeoadventure #thebaliguru #timeoutsociety #backpackerstory at Bali, Indonesia

"WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS IS A BIG GROUP HUG"❤️ In a world plagued by recent natural disasters, and one brewing on this very island I'm standing on, @bestivalbali managed to bring together a beautiful fusion of Indonesians and travelers from around the world to celebrate life, love and music this weekend🎶✌🏻 What happiness high remained from last nights festival finale has quickly turned to a broken heart for my own country💔🇺🇸 A similar gathering of festival-goers had their lives rocked in the most helpless of ways in Las Vegas, and the outcome is one of the worst in the USA's history. We currently have an influx of natural disasters destroying lives all around the world, why must we take each other's lives as well....?😢😔 Spread the love. Our whole world could really use it right now.💖 • • Please hop over to my friend 👉🏻 @jonesaroundtheworld 👈🏻page if you love traveling and festivals! I have his generosity to thank for mine and my dear friend @supandi_dewantoro good time at Bestival!🙌🏻🤗 • • #BestivalBali #bestival #bestivalbali2017 #girlslovetravel #festivalvibes #shetravelz #tourlina #girlsthatwander #ladiesgoneglobal #girlsborntotravel #womenwhotravel #thebalibible #balilife #baliguru #balicili #thisisindonesia #prayforlasvegas #spreadthelove #balidaily #seeyanever #girlsjustwannahavefun #lovetheworld #awesomelifestyle #theculturetrip #globeshotz #festivalready #lasvegas at Bestival Bali

Sometimes you have to overcome a challenge to reap the reward. Getting to sit and soak in this incredible view was worth the rough and wild journey to get to it!!😍🙌🏻 Just another piece of Bali that made me fall in love with these islands even more!❤️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Please keep Bali and its people in your thoughts right now as the northeast side of the island prepares for the potential of a volcanic eruption. Thousands have evacuated their homes days ago, and hold out hope in shelters that the eruption will be minimal🙏🏻Thank you to everyone that's reached out and expressed concern💖 I'm in Ubud, which is far enough from the volcano, but I have my masks on standby if the ash makes its way here and I'm prepared to help in any way possible! Please send all your positive vibes towards this island and these beautiful people, as I know Bali has touched the hearts of many around the world💖🌏 #prayforkarangasem • • • #thebalibible #explorebali #balilife #balicili #thebaliguru #balidaily #baligasm #indotravellers #wonderfulindonesia #thisisindonesia #livefolkindonesia #backpackerstory #travelstoke #girlslovetravel #womenwhoexplore #ladiesgoneglobal #girlswhowander #speechlessplaces #travelcommunity #iamtb #thetravelwomen #worldnomads #globeshotz #theculturetrip #girlsborntotravel #traveltagged #radgirlslife #andshesdopetoo #timeoutsociety at Nusa Penida Bali

✨"I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are 5 years old again. You can't read anything. You have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work. You can't even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses."✨✈️🌏 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hong Kong ended up having a little less of a language barrier than I expected (most places in the city at least!) but I've been to some places in Asia where that wasn't the case!🙌🏻 Where's somewhere you've traveled that left your head spinning and feeling a little lost?!😆🙈 • • • Thanks for showing me around and the snap @lermumu ✌🏻😊 #hongkonginsta #DiscoverHongKong #visualhongkong #unseenhongkong #exploreHK #insidehongkong #backpackerstory #girlslovetravel #shetravelz #globelletravels #thetravelwomen #sheisnotlost #girlsabroad #TheGlobalGirls #iamtb #femmetravel #girlgetters #youdotravel #girlsthatwander #speechlessplaces #theculturetrip #iamatraveler #traveldeeper #lonelyplanet #citystreets #hongkongcity #acolorstory #womenwhoexplore #lifewelltravelled #travelcommunity at Hong Kong

Where in the world are you TODAY??👉🏻🌎🌍🌏👈🏻 ~~~~~~~~~~~ I just got back to Bali from an incredible week in Hong Kong!

✨live for the moments you can't put into words✨This was one of those moments.🙌🏻 Standing up there, overlooking the vast city of Hong Kong that I'd spent the previous days walking amongst those very streets below me. This time my adventures called me into a familiar place, up in the mountains, where I was met with a calmness and beauty like none I'd experienced before from a big city. Thank you Hong Kong for sharing your magic!🤗💙 ~ ~ ~ *Tip: traveling solo and wanting to do this hike, I hired @hong_kong_hikers for this adventure, if you're in Hong Kong and looking to do a hike, shoot them a message!🏃🏼🏃🏼‍♀️ ~ ~ ~ #hongkonginsta #DiscoverHongKong #visualhongkong #hongkong_visit #timeoutHK #unseenhongkong #exploreHK #zolimahongkong #insidehongkong #travelstoke #womenwhohike #mtnchicks #womenwhoexplore #mountaingirls #RadGirlsLife #wildernessculture #modernoutdoors #hikingculture #thehikemovement #beautifuldestinations #theculturetrip #visualgang #instagood #strongersweden #backpackerstory #doyoutravel #timeoutsociety #lonelyplanet #globeshotz at Hong Kong

City or Nature? Which do you prefer? If you like both, Hong Kong is the place to go!! 🌆+🌳 = Hong Kong!🙌🏻 ~~~~~~~~~~ The past week has been a whirlwind, I traded my lush Bali jungles for the concrete jungle and this city has provided more than I could have imagined! I've hiked epic scenic trails and walked so much in the city that I gave myself shin splints😩, I've eaten some of the tastiest as well as some of the wildest and weirdest foods I ever imagined😝, and I met some incredible humans who have welcomed me and shown me their city better than I could have ever done when I arrived here alone!💖 My small town roots have always made me not much of a city girl, but I've developed a better appreciation for the city life after being here, especially when it's surrounded by so much nature! Today is my last full day before I head back to my home sweet Bali tomorrow afternoon, but I'll 100% be returning to this city to cross some more things off my list!!✨ • • • 📷 @rubbertoes__ #hongkonginsta #DiscoverHongKong #visualhongkong #hongkong_visit #timeoutHK #unseenhongkong #exploreHK #zolimahongkong #insidehongkong #yogalifestyle #shetravelz #iamtb #femmetravel #girlgetters #youdotravel #girlsthatwander #speechlessplaces #passionpassport #theculturetrip #huffposttravel #thelensbible #beautifuldestinations #bestdiscovery #mytinyatlas #lifewelltravelled #yogalife #thetravelwomen #travelstoke #traveldeeper #iamatraveler at Hong Kong

✨tell me your happiest travel story✨ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "the difference between an ordinary life and an extraordinary one is only a matter of perspective. pull the blinds. look around you. it is a weird, wonderful world and you do not require a ten digit bank account to immerse yourself in it. travel down dusty roads without a destination in mind. climb a mountain and scream out into the void. kiss a stranger. skinny dip in a lake. get lost and lose yourself (these are two separate things). explore the wilderness (particularly the one within). think less of destiny and more of the moment right here. because in the end, as you reflect back on your life in that hospital bed, surrounded by all your family and friends, fame won't matter, nor will the extent of your wealth--you are only the sum of the stories you can tell."💕✨ • • • #visitnusapenida #balidaily #baligasm #balicili #explorebali #wonderfulindonesia #folkindonesia #exploreindonesia #girlslovetravel #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #darlingescapes #girlsborntotravel #shetravelz #nomadgirls #globelletravels #thetravelwomen #sheisnotlost #sidewalkerdaily #girlsabroad #wetravelgirls #TheGlobalGirls #iamtb #womenwhotravel #femmetravel #YouthGoals #girlgetters #youdotravel #girlsthatwander #speechlessplaces at Nusa Penida Bali

✨🙏🏻Would LOVE your SUPPORT🙏🏻✨ For those of you who have been, or are new to following along on my journey, the last few years of my life have been a wild, beautiful ride as a full-time Nomad. For the first time, I have the incredible opportunity to share my full story of going from a small town, country girl turned globe trotter and the path I took to get to this point--and have it published in a book!📚🙌🏻 I have been nominated for Nomad of 2017 by @travtribe but I need your support to help this dream come true!💖🙏🏻 It would mean the world to me if you could head over to the @travtribe IG page, find my picture at the Heaven's Gate that I posted last week, and give it a like!😘(see my IG story for more info and the image to look for!) I have 24 hours to make it count!

✨"dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you."✨ ~~~~~~~~~~~~ This weekend what I thought was impossible came true🙌🏻 I fell MORE in love with Bali than ever!💙 I've dreamt of going to Nusa Penida (a small island off Bali) for quite some time, and its lush jungle🌿, stunning coastline, and insanely blue waters💦 absolutely blew me away😍 It was a wild scooter ride getting to a lot of the scenic spots (seriously the roads are insane--I don't know how I didn't crash my friend and I🛵😂), but OMG was the reward worth it to power through those drives! My adventures have led me to a lot of familiar places the last few months, but I think my wanderlust soul got a little fire lit inside it again....thank you Bali for continuing to steal my heart💙 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Wearing my fun, colorful new outfit from my favs @stronger 💪🏻 #stronger #strongersweden • • • #thebalibible #explorebali #balilife #balicili #thebaliguru #balidaily #baligasm #BaliDestinations #thebaliadvisor #indotravellers #wonderfulindonesia #nusapenida #visitnusapenida #speechlessplaces #girlsthatwander #wearetravelgirls #iamtb #thetravelwomen #girlsborntotravel #femmetravel #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #radgirlslife #allaboutadventures #traveldeeper #passionpassport #epiclifestyle #girlslovetravel at Nusa Penida Bali
