Well I may not be in Tokyo like I’d originally planned (should’ve been at Disneyland right now 😭), but I still got to see some cherry blossoms here in South Korea 🌸

Two weeks in lockdown seems like a good time to start some armchair travel. Unreal this was only a year ago.

How amazing is this temple! The design is so intricate... ☁️ • •
Please call me Amel baji.

I grew up believing the only family we have is from blood.
Travel has proven me that family is way more than sharing the same blood: from Venezuela to Sri Lanka to Pakistan.
What do you think?

I'm writing to you to tell you that I love you.
First love, from the very first breath I took to the last I'll take. I might sound like a hopeless romantic but that's how I am when it comes to you.
You've taught me how to stand tall and strong and face all the fears and obstacles in life. Come what may, your glory stands tall.
You gave me strength and inspired me always. 'Since when do petty winds change the direction of a mountain'? 🥀
I know how humans have spoilt, misused you over these years. Littering arround and being careless on your curves. You leave no chance to teach them a lesson. People have always talked about your beauty forgetting the hardships.
It is a tough situation for us today, people like me believe that you, the mountains are healing for now. I can't live without you, please call me soon, as soon as this get's over. I want to breathe that fresh mountain air, climb up an alpine lake and see the galaxy with my naked eyes, see lush green meadows and experience all the myths and magic you have to offer.
You bring me peaceful sleep, you heal me. Music, dance, books .. all this has helped me but not cured. You bring out something in me which is solely. I belong to you, child of nature, a wanderer at heart, a mountain child always.
You're beautiful and dangerous at the same time. One shouldn't hurry on the mountains, for they shall always be here. ❤️ To the mountains and never back.
May the holy mountains be with us.
With love and respect,
Shyamli and my mountain madness. 💙
Day 24: Missing the outdoors!! 😩
Posting to relive memories because I need a break from quarantine 🌋
This Pinatubo trek has re-instated the value of planning to me because... I didn’t check the experience. So I didn’t bring the right clothes... didn’t have time to find my hiking shoes (I used my gym shoes hahaha #neveragaintho ), didn’t bother to put on sunblock or get a cute face mask. I was just excited because it’s the first hurrah with my leggings huhu.
So ya gurl was super dugyot and sunog. Hahahaha. (I never thought I’d say I miss the sun on my skin because it burns me easily but wow, I miss some good ol’ summertime sunburn)
Constantly dreaming of traveling again. At least I have lots of pictures to reminisce on of past travels. 😓 Sad to say that our anniversary trip is looking like it will need to be postponed. Which is totally fine if that ends up being the case I just wish I had a better idea of when to postpone it to. Do you think traveling will be feasible again this year or do you think life is pretty much frozen until a vaccine is distributed? I feel so sad when I read about people in long distance relationships or with families far away that they can't see. Most of my family is in Texas but I couldn't imagine how I would feel if they were on the other side of the world with so many countries borders totally closed. At least if I really wanted to I could drive there. So many don't have that choice.
It's crazy to think how this virus has impacted life on pretty much every single level. I keep wondering if life will be frozen like this until a vaccine is available, but who knows when that will be. 😣😢 I look forward to when we can casually connect with a friend again, go to the gym, sip coffee in a cafe while people watching, go shopping, watch a movie in the theater, play sports, attend a concert, go dancing at a club, family dinners, and so many other simple things we take for granted...but also when we can travel and connect on a global scale again.
Be like a waterfall and create your own path.

The silver lining of being stuck at home right now is that I’m going to be on top of my blog writing for the first time in... probably ever, honestly. I’ve written 14 posts about travelling Ecuador in the last few weeks and I am seriously close to wrapping up (and beginning work on Colombia and Panama 🥵)!! It’s actually really exciting to pour endless time and energy into these projects that normally only get a few hours in the evenings or on a Sunday afternoon. 2020 won’t be wasted, that’s for sure!Just in case anyone is already taking suggestions on their post-corona escape, I put together an AWESOME 2-3 week travel itinerary for the Galápagos and mainland Ecuador at brookearoundtown.com ✨🇪🇨
