We love a formal night despite an initial battle to put trousers on the boys! We like to go and get the formal photos taken before dinner before they get mucky again! Bribing to go to kids club after one more smile always works too!! #familycruise#cruise#formal#night
While most temples throughout the world and here in Taiwan are often dedicated to one deity or one religion, Longshan Temple is a wonderful mix of the Taoist, Buddhist, and Confucian faiths. Taiwan has always been inclusive in its attitude towards religion, and Longshan Temple is the embodiment of that inclusive spirit 😉
Las alfombras de Marrakech 😍 son uno de los objetos más famosos de Marruecos. Todas estas las hacen a mano en talleres de las ciudades y pueblos.
Durante nuestro recorrido por las gargantas del Dades y los pueblos cercanos pudimos ver cómo se hacen estas alfombras, con la lana, las plantas con las que las tiñen, etc. Para hacer una (como de mitad de tamaño de la de la foto) tardan unos 3 meses una única persona trabajando 7-8h en ella. .
La verdad que en esta ocasión no compramos ninguna pero para la próxima me encantaría llevarme alguna. Tu qué sueles traer de tus viajes?
Did you know that there’s other ocean pools too in Sydney and not just Bondi Icebergs pool? 💧
This one is located at the Bronte Beach. The pool is 30m long but some lengths might be shorter since the pool curves around under the cliff. 🌊
Sometimes during high tide when you go for a dip the waves might splash over the edge of the lanes. For many, this is the fun part of the pool. However, the pool has not been closed because of high tide or dangerous conditions.
Life has become monotonous these days. Nobody has the time to stop and stare. Everybody is running around, trying to be ahead of the other. ✨✨✨
Vacations are a wave of fresh air that breathes life into your otherwise mundane life! ✨✨✨
How often do you travel? ✨✨✨
This pic has been taken at Grindelwald on my recent visit to Zurich. We did a day trip there and loved the it to the hilt! .
I was having this conversation with a buddy of mine the other day. Why is it that we treat once in a lifetime situations like skydiving, flying to Bora Bora or eating scorpions with so much more respect than the “normal” everyday stuff. -
When you really think about it, you will never have the same opportunity with the same person under the same circumstances ever again. You may have something the similar but there’s uniqueness in the details. -
Flowers outside a restaurant in the "bamboo mountains" - last summer.
Idk what type of flower but they seemed to be wishing me a happy meal with loved ones and to breathe beautiful life. So quietly exuberant in their gaily soft vibrancy. I had so many different bamboo dishes in this area, it's really a delicacy when they're fresh, local, and in season. Often I eat delicious things I have no idea what they are called and wish I knew so I could order them again but maybe part of the magic of life is that it is so ephemeral.
How has everyone been lately? Hope you're all feeling cosy on the inside as the weather gets chilly ♥️ lmk if u know what kind of flowers these are!

Thailand has always been one of my go to destinations.
It’s accessible, people are lovely, the food is excellent, and the landscapes are brilliant - there’s always something new to discover, yet also a sense of familiarity. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit a number of times, and each time has been special.
This trip again turned out to be amazing! Although the first few days were mostly filled with work (and many, many coconuts 😂), as the week went by and the weather did its unpredictable thing, I managed to sneak in a few attempts at catching the sunrise. This was one of my favourites on this trip - the colours and light and cloudy conditions made for a gorgeously painting-esque backdrop. It made getting up at 5am a few mornings in a row to wait for these conditions absolutely worth it. Watching the first light scatter across the horizon, imbued with hues of gold and pink and the blue sky welcoming the day, was a truly wonderful experience. .
Of course, it wasn’t like this every morning, as it was the rainy season and most days it was grey and wet! But like life, you never know what’s just around the corner, and if you don’t go searching for it, you might miss it entirely. .
When was the last time you watched the sun rise? 🌞
Shibuya, sh-shi Shibuya roll call!!!
If you know it, I know you sang it. 😆

NEW BLOG POST | Sharing our first Thanksgiving away & visiting our Nova Scotia family in Kelowna! It was a lot of fun, not to mention no cooking a traditional meal this year. Can’t complain there, take out was the best!
Two things we’ve never done before... order out & skip town! Haha
Best part sharing it with our group. Love them and was beyond grateful for our short time together.
Countdown until the next time we see them... *link in bio for more @covelakesideresort#lovinglittlespartner
✨ SILVER LINING!!! ✨ Would you say that this shot was worth all that hassle⁉️ Vacay Mishap No.2 - My iPhone (accidentally) took one quick dip in the Blue Lagoon water on Day 3 (of our 18 Days Europe Vacay) and it stopped functioning or rather developed a mind of it's own and would type rando stuff or automatically enter incorrect passcodes and lock me out for hours 📵 Not that the phone was any useful if it didn't lock me out cuz the keyboard wasn't working (though it would allow me to snap a pic using the volume button once in a while). I tried every trick to fix it but you know why none of it worked? cuz I had gotten my original screen replaced after breaking the screen on the last day of one of our previous trips (in Morocco desert)! But the thing is, I survived just fine without a phone/Internet/Social Media and what was even better was that I was able to completely and 100% unplug from work, which rarely ever happens. Even though I was frustrated about it the first day I quickly got over it and appreciated the situation for what it was! 🙌🏻 Though I rarely get on Social Media when we travel (something I have always practiced) I had intended to do some background work for my blog when we would be on the road. But I guess my phone probably decided that I needed a complete break and I am thankful for it (it’s a different story that I am still paying the price for it even though it’s been close to a month since we returned) #EverythingHappensForAReason 📱 When was the last time you completely unplugged and enjoyed a much-deserved phone-free break❓

Welcome to our first travel tip. We thought it would be a great idea to offer our followers little tips before visiting us in Mexico.
Tip 1: Bring a re-usable water bottle with you.
When traveling in Mexico do not drink the tap water. Although safe to shower, and brush your teeth it is not healthy to drink, and has a metal flavour to it.
At Aqua Guesthouse we supply drinking water in large jugs. In order to help our planet we recommend you bring a reusable bottle to take water with you to the beach and on your adventures. This prevents you from stopping at the corner store to purchase disposable bottles. Less plastic to end up in our oceans.
Some say it tastes better through the flamingo...🦩

Anybody love a panther suit as much as I do?!
Ever since I can remember my favorite color was black. And to this day a majority of my wardrobe consists of black. In the Fall/winter you’ll catch me wearing mostly black🖤
Whats your favorite color to wear?

Today in Puglia: Ate fresh squid pasta, then ordered a second (🤷🏼♀️), watched cliff jumpers and wedding party photos, had a gelato (seems like I can’t go a day without one) then got caught in a huge hail storm on the way home. Luckily, no damage on our baby Fiat! 🚙
A few of our fav spots in Puglia:
Alberobello 🧚♂️ Wander through the streets of gnome-like houses in this fairytale town.
Polignano a Mare 🏖 Beach and cliff side town, one of the most famous in the Puglia region.
Monopoli 🍝 quieter beaches than Polignano and pasta to die for!!! Head to Primo Pasta for one of the best carbonara in Puglia.
Cave of Poetry 🏊🏼♂️ natural swimming hole, perfect for cliff jumping.
Matera 🏺stone city with cave dwellings - they were still lived in until 1952!
When you go to Nova Scotia you have to go see lighthouses, you just do. #coastalNSroadtrip

As a true lover of classical Disney movies since I was a little girl, this was a dream came true!! 🏰
Loved the Halloween theme during Autumn season 🍁🎃👻 (I even dressed accordingly, see?), also the fireworks and illumination show in the end was breathtakingly magical🎆
Such a magical experience to relive my childhood memories 💫✨

Aim for the sky, but move slowly, enjoying every step along the way. •
This photo was taken in Myanmar but I actually just landed in Sydney a few hours ago! We've already started exploring- check my stories to follow along! ☺️ Photo location: this is known as the Golden Rock, about a 4.5 hour drive from Yangon. You have to take a crazy rickety bus ride for an hour up the mountain to reach this place, so be prepared! 😀
Magic at the end of the earth, found a world away...✨🌈🧡🌙 @tasmania
There is a spellbinding sense of beauty which surrounds this unknown landscape — Being so inaccessible to humans, historically this wild part of Australia has become somewhat of a forgotten land. Exploring the Southwest we had this place completely to ourselves, not seeing another human the entire time we were here — Can you remember the last time you found yourself in complete wilderness? #discovertasmania
