Love her, but leave her wild 🌍 at Seaford, East Sussex

A walk in the woods 🌳 . . . . . Didn’t quite hike the Appalachian trail, however I did spend an entire day walking the trails of Epping Forest. The age of the forest and the range of habitats it contains make it a valuable area for wildlife, and it is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (meaning a protected UK area for the sake of conservation). I can’t think of a better way to start the UK bank holiday weekend. at Epping Forest

London oh London ⚡️ . . . . . A place could always be better. That’s a pretty pessimistic way of looking at the world, but it’s true. Why doesn’t it snow in my town? Why don’t we have certain stores? Why is my city so boring? Why can’t I live in the big city? Why can’t I live by the sea? We probably all think to ourselves, there’s somewhere better. But I think once you start choosing where to live, it becomes a lot easier to love everything around you. And by choosing, I don’t necessarily mean moving. I mean mentally choosing a place that is home no matter how frustrating or annoying or infuriating that place is. That’s the thing about London. We all hate it, but we would never live anywhere else. 😉 at Tate Britain

Thoughts over coffee: have you ever had a crazy dream to do something, well, crazy? Have you set yourself goals that to others seem unattainable? I did something pretty crazy because I did have a dream. My dream was to live abroad with the love of my life and to travel often. That dream really did come true. But sometimes, living the dream can be difficult as hard realities hit you like anvils. What you have to remember is why you dreamt the dream. Remember what was so important to you and keep striving for it. Dreams have to be fought for every single day, otherwise they’ll slip right out of your hands. Like Rapunzel, sing out loud: “I’ve got a dream!” 💭 at Bloomsbury Coffee House

When you work a 9-5, your weekends become so incredibly important because it’s the only time you really get a chance to not focus on the things you have to do, by the things you want to do. • • But lately, I’ve been bringing my work stress home. I know it’s so important to keep your work life separate from your personal life as both areas demand their own time and space. • • I try to fill my free time with fun activities, but I still find the stress creeps in. And then, I bring some stress back with me to work on Monday! • • Do you have tips on how to de-stress? How do you disconnect and chill out? at WaterWorks Nature Reserve and Golf Centre

Oh my Lanta! 🐚 . . . . . No, I’m not referring to Full House or the stomach medicine... Koh Lanta is truly breathtaking. I love the fact that it’s a bit rough around the edges and is not overcrowded. While I’m not anti-tourist (I am one!), I love missing out on the flocks of people. Magic is when you’re on a white sandy beach all by yourself: just you and the ocean. Check out my new blog post on Koh Lanta: link in bio! at Long Beach, Koh Lanta

Is that you, Nemo? 🧡 . . . . . Spending 6 beautiful days in Koh Lanta really was a treat. After all the go go go in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, it was nice to force myself to slow down for at least a little while. My favourite part is, of course, the ocean. Victor and I went on a snorkeling trip to the islands near Koh Lanta and it was such a dream. There’s something so ethereal about looking underwater and hearing nothing but your own breathing through the mask. I’ve gone snorkeling so many times, and yet every time feels so magical. I even saw Nemo! at Ban Ko Muk, Trang, Thailand

Was it all just a dream? 🧜‍♀️ at Koh Lanta Krabi

Home away from home 🌴 . . . . . I usually do not fuss too much about my accommodations during vacation, but I have to rave about this adorable boutique guesthouse I stayed at in Chiang Mai called Baan Khun Krub. The rooms are finished with wooden furnishings and traditional Thai decor. They have an extensive breakfast every morning, starting with fresh fruit and coconut sticky rice followed by whatever you pick from their menu. The guesthouse is extremely quiet and private — there are even signs for those in rooms above others that explain how traditionally, children were taught how to walk like cats. I miss this place already! at Baan Khun Krub

Sea you soon 🌊 . . . . . Do you prefer the mountains or the ocean? The city or the countryside? For me, it has always been so difficult to choose. I enjoy living in a big city like London, but then when I go far away to a little town by the sea I’m instantly at peace. I can’t really tell if it’s because it’s just a nice break from the craziness of the city or it’s because it’s truly where I belong. This is why I feel so privileged to be able to travel — I get to visit all the different places I love so I don’t have to choose. at Trang, Thailand

That Indiana Jones feeling 🤠 . . . . . Chiang Dao cave is one of the most visited caves in all of Thailand. It has been known for over 1000 years as a sacred place, so you can imagine that there are numerous myths and legends associated with the cave. Inside the cave there are two ‘parts’: one lit and one not. To enter the unlit area you need to hire a guide who will lead you through the cave with a gas lantern. It’s eerie and spooky, yet so fun! I admit I’m rather risk-adverse and cautious, but I love when I tap into my more adventurous, daring side. Sometimes a little risk is good as it truly makes us feel alive. at ถ้ำเชียงดาว,Chiang Dao Cave - thailand

Catch me if you can 🐯 . . . . . To the jungle we go! We decided that we wanted to go to the middle of nowhere for a couple nights, away from the expat and tourist life of Chiang Mai. We ended up in Chiang Dao, a tiny town about an hour north deep in the mountains. It’s farm country with a quaint downtown. Our accommodation was actually a farm and we stayed in a traditional bungalow complete with bamboo furniture and a mosquito net. Everything was so humble and beautiful there — chickens roaming around, the stars shining bright (‘Chiang Dao’ means city of stars), and the waterfalls gently splashing down. Here, you can truly relax in nature. at Chiang Dao, Chiang Mai, Thailand

We’re perfect simply because we’re not. We’re strong, powerful, diverse, and capable of anything. Happy international women’s day! Let’s celebrate women (as in anyone who identifies as female) every day! Oh la luna, look how she shines so bright 🌝 at Blue Moon Bar

The paradox of travel is that it is a privilege, yet it keeps you humble. You are but a tiny speck in the universe and it truly is a privilege to know that and not be dismayed by that fact, but to feel enlightened. 💫 at Wat Phra Singh (hoofdbetekenis)
