Happy Valentine’s Day to you, me, and my passport! All of which without I wouldn’t have been able to go to most of the World’s top honeymoon/romantic destinations. 🥰💕😂 . I used to think I’d only get to go to these places on a honeymoon or with someone, but now I’m like, f that, why wait and why only go to one?! (To be fair though I was with a bf in the Maldives and Bali 😘..) I do feel a little spoiled that I’ve stayed in about 5 over-water bungalows though... . One day it’ll be VERY interesting to see where I actually do a honeymoon (I’m leaning towards Everest or the Moon), but I want to know where your dream romantic destination is (solo or with someone) out of these pics! . Options are: Aruba, Turks and Caicos, Bali, Maldives, Tahiti, or Bahamas! . . . . #valentinesday2018 #valentines #valentinesday #loveyourself #loveyou #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #tlpicks #sonya7iii #siswim #aruba #maldivesislands #maldives #swimmingpigs #bahamas #exuma #bali #lombok #tahiti #overwaterbungalow #honeymoondestination #honeymoon #beautifuldestinations #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #forbestravelguide at Valentine's Day


Monday Motivation :: “Attitude is the difference between an adventure and an ordeal” 😜 . So this is what I did after getting to the airport at 7am in Aruba to find my flight to Curaçao cancelled without any notice or reason. 🤦‍♀️The airline (DO NOT take Insel) didn’t offer to rebook me, then when I looked for another flight out, there were none for the day, which normally would have been fine, but my flight to Miami from Curaçao was the next morning. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ . BUT, I stayed calm and decided to turn my misfortune into an adventure! Since it was so early, I realized I could finally get to this famous Fofoti Tree in Eagle Beach before it got too crowded! . Then I did a poll on Stories and with your help I decided I might as well just take the day off and relax at the beach rather than go straight to Miami. So, I lost a couple hundred bucks, but gained a sweet tan (with sunscreen) and probably one of the only actual vacation days I’ve had in a while! . Oh, and that flight from Curaçao to Miami had a layover in Venezuela, and the second leg ended up cancelled so I would have been stuck there anyway instead (without a visa and uh, safety)...glad it was Aruba! . So, next time you’re about to panic when your travel plans change, just can either make the best of it, or the worst, but it’s entirely up to you and your attitude! . What would you do if all your flight plans went to shit? . #travelfails #fofoti #eaglebeach #eaglebeacharuba #aruba #arubaonehappyisland #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #bestvacations #islandlife #goprogirl #goprotravel #tlpicks #dametraveler #wearetravelgirls at Eagle Beach Aruba


One of my favorite things about traveling solo is how much more likely you are to meet people! Which is also usually my answer to the inevitable “but don’t you get lonely traveling alone?” . The topic of solo travel is a funny thing; some automatically assume it’s super lonely or sad that you “don’t have someone to share experiences with”, others tend to question “if you’re really alone” which always cracks me up (like no, I secretly have a photographer that I just don’t ever mention or show in Stories 😂), and then there’s actual professional, chronic solo travelers like me who are like “you’re wasting time worrying and judging when you could be out traveling and doing cool shit”. 😂 . In my opinion, solo travel means you left to go somewhere on your own. If you meet people or take a tour with people, that still “counts” and is a core goal of solo travel in the first place! Idk why some people think either you HAVE to be isolated and rough it to count (there’s only so many deserted island in the world 😂) and then others don’t realize there’s billions of people in the world so you’re never really alone when you travel alone (shameless plug: that was the title of my first HuffPost article!) . Anyway! Overall, there are no rules and regulations to travel titles. And if you have any worries about going alone, trust me, do it, and do it now. I was a huge introvert before I traveled solo and now I think every human on earth is automatically my friend! . Also you have so many more cool stories to tell like how I wouldn’t have been able to get here, the famous Baby Beach in Aruba without the person I had just met there to take me! 😜 . Last but not least, huge shout out to @lillypulitzer (where the skirt is from) who has made my wardrobe so tropical and posh! 😻💖 . #babybeach #babybeacharuba #aruba #solotravel #beachvibes #goodvibesonly #lillypulitzer #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #sonyar7iii #bestvacations #tropicaldestination #islandlife #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler at Aruba


Now that’s what I call “throwing shade”! 😎🌴😂 . What do you think I’m making that face at? The hair that keeps sticking to my lipgloss? The couple that just swooped the cabana I wanted? Because my mango daiquiri doesn’t have enough rum in it? Or because I secretly want one of those pics with the palm shadow on my back but 0% chance I’d take my top off for a non-bf? 😂 . Anyway! This exotic little tropical paradise is in between the best southern beaches in Aruba! I’ll have all the details on my blog very soon since all my flights got messed up and I now have a long flight time 🙈 . Happy Friyay everyone! . #friyay #fridayvibes #throwingshade #intheshade 😂 #aruba #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #travelblogger #mangodaquiri #bestbeaches #lastminutetrip #arubaonehappyisland #arubabeach #siswim #beachwear #swimsuit #sonyar7iii #vacations #tlpicks at Aruba


Spotted! A flamingo in Aruba!! 🧜🏼‍♀️🦅👀 Jk, but I did find what I came here looking for, my favorite kind of beaches in the world: Caribbean ones! . This beach (Mangel Halto) was recommended by a cool bartender I met, and since I forgot my drone and wouldn’t leave my camera/tripod on the cliff, I recruited my new guide/friend as my photo assistant (who yes, I swooped off an app) - he’s now going to be doing photo tours (AKA Instagram bf for hire-according to me 😂) so hit him up when you come to Aruba! Both of them are tagged on my Stories and their info will be in my blog post! . What has been one of your best travel memories of meeting locals abroad?? . #lastminutetrip #ineedavacation #aruba #arubaflamingos #makeshiftIGBF #fauxdroneshot #solotravel #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #bestbeaches #vacations #beautifuldestinations #sonyar7iii #photography at Aruba


Wanderlust got the best of me and I ended up booking a last minute flight to travel solo in Aruba! ☀️🏝🙋‍♀️ . To be honest I probably would have preferred to not come solo since it’s such a vacation destination...but like the majority of the places I travel solo to, if I didn’t just go alone, I’d probably never get to go! This is also probably because I decided last Friday to randomly come here and can rarely give anyone advance notice, plus it’s easier for me to just GO. 🤷‍♀️😂 But! That’s how you can tell who is a real traveler vs the ones who only go when a trip is offered! (And take all pics at only hotels). . Other reasons why I came are bc it wouldn’t stop raining in LA, I need to go get my dog in FL anyway (don’t ask how I decided it’s “on the way”), and bc my bucketlist this year is going to the World’s best islands! . Anyway me and my photographer (JK I’m taking this with a tripod and the remote is in my hand behind my hat) are having a swell time beach hopping today! See them all on my stories! (And thanks to everyone who notified me of my nip slip...deleted!🙈) . I’m trying to be as budget friendly as possible which is partially why I chose here, the last minute flight was only $150! Non-perks of booking last minute during high season though is the hotels of my choice are pricey, but at least I’m saving on transportation by taking the bus since I didn’t realize my license was expired and couldn’t rent a car when I got here! 🤪 . Also, the flamingos might not happen bc my collab with that hotel wasn’t until May (I’m impatient) and I’m not paying $400 to stay there and it’s still over $100 for a day pass...probably shouldn’t even promote it since it’s so expensive anyway lol, but for those who wanted flamingos...sorry! Maybe I’ll learn how to photoshop in birds like everyone else does 😂 (jk again) . Do you have any questions about traveling solo or booking last minute travel plans? I’m eating lunch w my tripod right now so feel free to ask me anything below! . 👖👒: @coco.and.carmen 👛: @luludharma . #solotravel #traveladdict #lastminutetrip #aruba #bocacatalina #bestbeaches #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #selfietography #sonyar7iii at Aruba


Cruising on into the weekend like...uh...there’s not a polar vortex going on in the US or anything... 😱🥶❄️ . Sending everyone some sunshine and this little tid bit of inspo: the island I’m on in this pic in French Polynesia is called Mo’orea and has a couple homestays that won’t break your bank account 😜 . What’s the weather like where you are? And has anyone tried this turning boiling water into snow thing?? (If not you did not hear about it from me) . #sendsunshine #polarvortex #frenchpolynesia #moorea #overwaterbungalow #tahititourisme #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #goprogirl #goprotravel #tlpicks #sonyalphasclub at Mo'orea


Dream: To be able to talk to animals 😻....Well, that the animals talk back when I talk to them. 😂 . ((Disclaimer before I get any complaint comments: that coral is not live, it was actually the display in the gift shop, and I’d never touch live coral. No fish were harmed in the making of this pic and it’s not photoshopped. Just covering all bases here. 😂) . Speaking of dreams and complaints...5 years ago I had a dream to travel the world and make it my full time career through blogging and social media. Dream worked because I did, but now I’m complaining about all these greedy people who once doubted and laughed at people like me, and are now trying to profit from us, and dreamers like you. . I got back from being nomadic for almost 3 years to find people in LA who once accused me of having men pay for my trips (when I was actually working my ass off for sponsorships or paying on my own) now starting their own “Influencer agencies” (yet only taking multi-million follower people), and I won’t even get started on the amount of scam courses I see to “Quickly grow your audience” or “Easily become an Influencer”, from people who haven’t, or people who actually paid thousands for their followers but would never teach you that in a course. . I’ve always kept quiet bc I’m pretty damn happy with my 6 figure income I make by traveling the world and using my creativity, but I decided it’s not fair to you and to the people like me who were at the forefront of all this Influencer mayhem. . SO I’ve decided to finally write eBooks and record courses, both explaining how I created this career, and also how to save and make money to travel WITHOUT having to be a blogger or Influencer! I’ll probably give a bunch away when they’re ready so drop me a comment if you want one. . Rant over. Thanks for that therapy session. 😂 . #dreamsdontworkunlessyoudo #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #animalwhisperer #realtalk #travelblogger #influencermarketing #influencer #tahiti #frenchpolynesia #goprogirl #goprotravel #islandlife #solotravel at Tahiti, French Polynesia


Happy #WanderlustWednesday! Where are you wanderlusting to go today?? 🌏 🤤 . For me, my mind is still set (and planning!) more of the most remote, exotic islands in the world, like the ones I saw in French Polynesia! . I’m actually swimming right where the world’s second biggest wave is (Teahupoo), and that coast is dotted with little lagoons and waterfalls, some areas only accessible by boat! . Are you wanderlusting about French Polynesia yet? . #frenchpolynesia #teahupoo #tahiti #borabora #moorea #surfinglife #islandlife #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #sonyalphasclub #vacationstyle at Tahiti, French Polynesia

Monday Motivation :: Getting to the top is never easy, if it was, everyone would be there. But also don’t forget you’re not the only one pushing through the rocky, windey, uneven path it takes to get there! You’re not alone, and it’s Ok to take chances and feel the struggle! Carry on! . The first time I did this hike 4 years ago I was just starting my dream of being a travel blogger/Instagrammer, and I remember looking out at LA and being like “You just watch! I’m gunna do it!” Looking at it now...a few trips around the world and the career I once could only dreamed about...thinking of the people who laughed now all about Influencer marketing, and I can’t help but smile. But yes my legs are still sore. . Anyway! The Hollywood Sign hike is definitely a full day commitment, but so worth it for these views of the entire city and the closest you can get to the sign! Plus right now it’s actually green (usually all brown) bc of the rain! . This is what I hiked up in, contrary to the gown I put on in the last pic, and it’s made partially from recycled plastic bottles! Speaking of which, consider getting a reusable water bottle like I use everyday instead of using plastic ones! ♻️ 🌎 🙏💖 . Now, raise your hands up if you want to charge through that epically uneven pathway that is life!! 😂🙋‍♀️⛰ . #motivation #hollywood #hollywoodsignhike #iloveLA #LA #losangeles #california #visitcalifornia #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #besthikes #womenwhohike #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub at Hollywood Sign


Where my travel movie all started 8 years ago when I came to LA for a weekend and never went back home. 🤷‍♀️😻 . I still get excited to see the Hollywood Sign, and it’s even more surreal to see up close which you can only do by hiking a few miles, or if you’re a model on a photoshoot... . Clearly I am not a real model (just a model for myself and IG 😂), but after hiking 3 miles with this gown in my backpack, I took a wrong turn and discovered this photoshoot set (you can’t have cars in this location) minus the models who were all running late, so I used it instead. . When the French photographer first saw us in our workout gear he was literally like “you can take pics until ze models get here” which I wanted to say “betch I do way cooler/meaningful things than just model”, then I put on this dress and heard him ask the PA “wait are they ze models?” . Just goes to show you should never judge a book by its cover, even though everyone does...and also how lame it is that so many people are infatuated with just beauty over things like...idk starting your own business and traveling the world? 😂 . Anyywayyyy you can still see how to do this hike on my Stories plus the full story on this photobomb photoshoot and how I left my GoPro in their van (and why I was even in a van), but I’ll also be making a video and blog post with the new trail routes, and how not to get lost! . Huge shout out to @jenafit2fly who did this hike w me and helped me get these shots! . PS How funny is it seeing a pic of me in a gown next to one of me covered in mud with an elephant? 😂 . Have you ever done the Hollywood Sign hike? ...or taken over a photoshoot? 😂😂😂 . #hollywood #hollywoodsignhike #hollywoodsign #girlswhohike #girlswhohikeindresses #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #cadillac #sonyalphasclub #LosAngeles at Hollywood Sign, California
