Out of the thousands of sunsets I’ve seen in the hundreds of places around the World, Southern California actually has some of the best ones! 🌅 😻 . In fact, I’ve never rushed to get somewhere for sunset before like I do here (lies, I do it in SE Asia where sunsets are also 🔥), and actually climbed this random rock outside of Joshua Tree National Park in such a rush in that flowy dress that I was basically neked 🙈💃🏼😂 . And no, I didn’t just do it for the ‘gram...I stayed up there and had a wine picnic while watching the free sky art show until the next act: a star studded desert night sky! . Then it was off to stay in my first ever “Tiny Home” which I’ll show on my Stories! It definitely made me consider living in one or an airstream one day! .

Happy SIX YEAR Blogger-versary to me/MyLifesAMovie.com!!! It’s been a looonnggg, bumpy, risky, yet oh so scenic road but... . #MondayMotivation :: Don’t let distance or unfamiliarity of a long journey hold you back from going. Appreciate every hurtle, soak in every sight and experience, because when you finally get to your final destination, you’re going to look back and be like ‘DAMN that was awesome!!!’ . Definitely appreciating the insane road that led me to where I am today, and hoping all of you continue to persevere on each of your own paths to your dreams! . Never forget: Dreams don’t work unless you do! 💪🏽✨💖 . Also, I recently wrote a 5k word mini novel about how I got to where I’m at as part of the intro for my intern-training course that I may be posting later on my Stories and only keeping public for 24 hours in case anyone is interested in hearing about how I went from wanting to drop out of high school to running a six figure career from all over the world 🤷‍♀️ . #mondaysdontsuck #monday #motivationalquotes #roadtrip #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #usaroadtrip #nationalparks #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #dreamsdontworkunlessyoudo #entrepreneur #digitalnomad at Joshua Tree, California

We going straight 👏 to 👏 the Wild Wild West 👏 We going straight 👏 tooooo 👏 the Wild Wild Wild Wild West 🤠 . . Anyone remember that movie?? One of my favorites (mostly bc I’m obsessed with Will Smith), so it was extra awesome to visit Pioneertown near Joshua Tree where the old movie sets of western movies were filmed and are still preserved thanks to the actors in the 40’s-50’s who funded this little western town! . There’s actual shops in the Olde Times facades, and one of the best restaurants you HAVE to stop at if you go to Joshua Tree as well, called Pappy and Harriet’s! . I’ve only ever stumbled upon a couple other random little nostalgic towns like this, including a Ghost Town (terrifying) on the way to Death Valley (making it more terrifying), does anyone have any tips for other places like this in the world? . . #pioneertown #wildwildwest #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #visitcalifornia #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #roadtrip #usaroadtrip #summeroutfit #summerroadtrip at Pioneertown, California

I always see these badass wolf dogs on IG, well here is a tiny version who’s equally as ferocious and intimidating even though he looks like a baby polar bear and his owner is wearing a flowy dress! 🐺 💃🏼😂 . But seriously, one of the main reasons I’m wanting to do a couple US road trips is so I can bring @oscardelaramos! He was the hardest thing I had to give up when I decided to be nomadic for 3 years, and it fills my heart to be able to have and bring him places now! (Friends and my mom dogsit during my longer trips) . Plus he’s such a good travel buddy, he literally just follows me everywhere, even if I climb rocks (but let’s be serious, I carry him most of the time and have recently started tying him in a scarf on my hip like a kangaroo), loves veggies, and sleeps in until I wake up! 😻 . This is his second National Park, and next week will be his first international flight to Canada where he’ll go to 3 more National Parks with me in a campervan! . . 🐶Pro Tips for Traveling With a Dog (Save this post for reference): - ALWAYS look up ahead of time if dogs are allowed in parks, hotels, restaurants etc - Look up restrictions (I.e. you can’t go on hiking trails with dogs at Joshua Tree, just picnic areas like this one) - Bring a portable water bowl and tons of water - Keep a leash on when outside (unless you’re holding them for a pic 😜) - For flights, call before you book to make sure there’s pet spots available - Bring something safe for them to chew on the plane for when their ears pop and are restless - Carry biodegradable 💩 bags (Will post them on Stories) . . Anyone else have tips for traveling with a pet? OR tips for BANFF, JASPER, and surrounding National Parks?? . #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #nationalparks #usnationalparks #cactus #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #roadtripusa #roadtrip #sonya7iii at Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree roadtrip! First stop: Skull Rock! ...well actually 4th stop because the first time it was too crowded. 💀💃🏼 . Speaking of which, if I look like I’m snarling in this pic, it’s because when I took the person I’m with’s photo here, there were 0 people, then I go to take my pic and 30 people suddenly show up! 😠 This is the result of good angling! . Anywayyyy, Joshua Tree is a National Park only about 2-4 hours from LA (depending on traffic), and it’s right next to Palm Springs and Coachella Valley! . It’s best known for its funny shaped cactus trees, giant boulders that look like things (like this skull), amazing star gazing, and Insta-worthy accommodations. I personally also really like how this whole area is Wild West themed still from back in the day when it really was! . Have you been to Joshua Tree? What’s your favorite National Park? . 👗: @sun.c.h.i.l.d . #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #nationalparks #roadtripusa #visitcalifornia #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #sonya7iii #weekendgetaway #earthoutdoors #girlswhohike at Joshua Tree National Park

Once upon a time, there was a girl from Florida who went to visit Los Angeles for the weekend, and never went home. Then she decided her fairytale was to travel the world, so she went, and still is, so to be continued.... . While my own story is being continued, I love to read books about other “people’s” lives, whether they’re relatable like ‘Paris for One’ or completely different like ‘Sweetbitter’. 📚 . I always read during take-off and landing, and also write where I am in the world when I’m reading certain pages, because I leave books all over the world when I’m done with them for other people to read! . I have some downtime in LA for a week, then off to do some epic road trips, so need some new book recommendations if you have any!! . If you need some new summer books, or want to leave books during your travels like I do, take advantage of @barnesandnoble ‘s discounts going on right now for just this month!

Waving byyyyeee but apparently Earth didn’t want me to leave the Seychelles bc as soon as I got home there were 2 huge earthquakes!!! 😖 . One woke me up on the 4th of July and sent me into a PTSD flare that resulted in me running outside half naked with my dog 🙈 The other last night (biggest we’ve had in 20 years) ironically happened while I was in the middle of making up a yoga pose with a yoga/meditation instructor I call “Nesting Penguin with Oscar (my dog) as the Baby Penguin”. I kept saying “It’s not stopping!” as I stood frozen watching everything in my apartment shake, and he said “You’re not breathing. Breathe!” So I did, which drastically helped reduce the unnerving anxiety. . For those who don’t know of my epic disaster of a month last year with 3 accidents then a month of non-stop earthquakes in Bali, I had really bad PTSD anxiety for 6 months, so I’m very grateful to see that these two scares can’t make it fully come back. Also grateful for the handful of you guys, friends, and fam who checked in on me to make sure I didn’t have a panic attack. . Hoping no one had any damage near the epicenter and that everyone’s feeling calm! . . #earthquake #laearthquake #antianxiety #losangeles #seychelles #visitseychelles @visitseychelles #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #weatherchannel

Happy 4th of July to all my fellow US passport holders (even though I feel more like a Global Citizen)! 🇺🇸🍻🎆🎇 . Although there’s a lot of things I don’t agree with in the US, and I always get sick when I come home, I’m still grateful for the strong passport we have that makes traveling easier, and if you don’t have one, you better go get one right now or it’s an insult to not only our country, but all the countries who don’t get the privilege of such a strong passport! . I’m also grateful for all the epic places we have in the US that go unappreciated, including by me who is trying to change that this year. . For example, how crazy is it that I’ve been to 100 countries, but only about 10 US States?! 😳 . So to celebrate our country’s independence, I want to know where you’re from and one place you love in the US that you think I should travel to!!! . Photos are of the few states I’ve been to... Miami, FL (where I was born), Venice, CA (home base), Arizona, New York, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Washington DC (even though it’s not a state). The only others I’ve been to are Georgia, New Orleans, Nevada, Utah, and Michigan! . #4thofjuly #independenceday #ustravel #unitedstates #americanstyle #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #miamibeach #venicebeach #heartwall #stairwaytoheaven #horseshoebend #lincolnmemorial at United States

Watch the IGTV to see how weird I am in real life when I have a luxury villa, a butler that grants any wish, a 100th country to celebrate, and a drone at @maialuxuryresort 🤪🍾💃🏼 . In real life I’m a bit of a wild child, and I cringe at the thought of doing the same shots that turn us female creators into a stereotype, so instead of doing a normal cute floating breakfast in an infinity pool, I asked for a wine and champagne one, and instead of celebrating a follower count milestone with earth-damaging balloons, I celebrated my 100th country, with flower petals left over from a wedding the night before, and instead of having a guy get drone footage of me, I take my own. 😜 😻🍾🍾🍾 . I seriously could not have asked for a better place to celebrate my 100th country...the Maia villa itself is one of the most stunning designs I’ve seen, especially with that wading pool with the two red sunbeds, and little butt-nut decor everywhere! Plus did I mention the butler?? Each villa has its own butler who is so attentive and accommodating! Don’t worry, after making all of my 100th country party demands, my final demand was that he take the rest of the day off and join my party! . This was the most epic end to one of the most memorable trips...even though I definitely had to get on a plane after villa-partying all day... #worthit 🎉 . What would you do if you stayed here and had a butler who told you he could grant your any wish?? . #MAIALuxuryResort #seychelles #100thcountry #centuryclub #bucketlistcheck #mylifesatravelmovie #mylifesabucketlist #alyssaramostravels #champagne #girlswhodrone #femaleempowerment #luxuryvilla #tlpicks at Seychelles

This giant tortoise ran up at me like a puppy I haven’t seen in a week! ...or more realistically, like I had some fresh fruits from the resort to feed him, but I choose to live my animal whisperer dream 😂🐢😻 . But seriously, I had no idea giant tortoises could move so fast and be so demanding of where to pet them! There’s actually two in this photo (ones behind the one in front), and both ran over so fast and stuck their heads right in my face that I thought they were going to trample me! Then they move their heads so their necks are where your hand is because that’s where they apparently like to be scratched, and will just stay there and stare at you while you do it! 🤯 . These are Aldabra giant tortoises that are unique to Seychelles and they live freely and naturally on Desroches Island. They’re over 100 years old and weigh more than I do, and random fun fact: they drink through their nose! . Will definitely put the behind the scenes on my Stories of me being initially scared when they were approaching me and then when they finally ended up knocking over my tripod after I got this shot 🤷‍♀️😂 . Also on Stories later will be my summer intern application, a poll for my first bikini line design, and a couple other summery goodies! . What would you do if a giant tortoise came running at you?? . #gianttortoise #turtleturtle #iliketurtles #desroches #desrochesisland #seychelles #seychellesisland #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #bucketlist #bucketlistslayer #animalwhisperer #tlpicks #goprogirl at Desroches Island

#MondayMotivation :: Stop saying you can’t do something if you haven’t tried to do it a minimum of twenty times. Once you realize you actually CAN do the things you think you can’t, you’ll be in a whole new world of glorious possibilities! 🤩 . Initially I thought “I can’t travel solo, I’d be scared, it’s too expensive, and people will think it’s weird that I’m alone”. I canceled 2 trips before taking the 3rd one then BOOM! Realized how affordable, safe, and awesome it is and have been at it ever since! . Moral: You won’t know if you can or can’t do something unless you try to do it. ✨ . Random photo reference: I had no idea I could do the cool one leg up backbend yoga pose until recently when I was doing a backbend for a photo and a fellow creator yelled “Can you put one leg up for the photo??” I immediately said “No! I can’t” and she was like “I feel like you can, just try!”, so I did, and then BOOM again! Now I have another cool pose to do on beaches 😂 We also didn’t think the cloudy sky was going to give us a sunset, then swipe left to see it proving us wrong!!! . So fun getting proved wrong sometimes! You should try it! 😜 . BTW I’m going to be doing some US summer travels and would love to hear if you have any epic locations you think I should add to it!! I’m aiming for things like Antelope Canyon/Havasu Falls! 💖 . I also opened up a bucketlist Thailand group trip this November for the Chiang Mai lantern festival, so DM me if you’re interested in hearing more! 4 Spots left! . #motivation #sunsets #seychelles #fsdesroches #desrochesisland #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #dreamitdoit #dreamsdontworkunlessyoudo #backbend #goprogirl at Desroches Island

Sunday’s are always Fundays on secluded islands! 🏝 . Left the main island in Seychelles for a few days to hang out on the tiny, nearly uninhabited island of Desroches which is home only to @fourseasons #FSDesroches, about 100 locals and expats, and even more tortoises! 🐢🐢🐢 . You arrive directly at the Four Season’s private outdoor airport, which is only about 100 yards from the resort, and from there are taken to your very own rustic-chic villa. The villas even come with cute boho hats and bags for you to borrow while you’re there! (see the last pic!) 😻 . There’s no cars so to get around you ride a bike or call a buggy! I rode my bike to this lighthouse, which is actually a restaurant and bar! How cool is that?! . What are you up to today? Anyone wishing they were on a remote island? . #seychelles #desroches #desrochesisland #fourseasons #fspartner #privateisland #worldsbestislands #lighthouse #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #droneselfie #dronestagram #selfietography #sundayfunday at Seychelles
