“When someone asks me why I cry so often, I say, ‘for the same reason that I laugh so often. Because I’m paying attention.’”

There are some people who somehow make your heart calm and alive at the same time. Find yourself an adventure buddy like that. Grateful for you @kendrose_, for deep conversation, for ninja speed footwork over rocks, for rain, for the beauty that surrounds us and the beauty of your soul. #cheesy but true. 😘

Today’s #traveltiptuesday is brought to you by this woman 👆🏼in. a. bikini.
If you’re wondering why that’s my opener, it’s because earlier this week a male speaker at a travel conference said “travel tips from a woman in a bikini are unreliable” and tweets from other male speakers like “the cam girls of travel” and “softcoreporn” shortly followed.
My favorite travel tip: NEVER forget why you travel. NEVER forget you’re doing it for you. For your own health & wellness, personal growth & spiritual journey.
And if that journey includes you wearing a bikini, then you do you! Do what makes you happy and dress however you like while doing it 💕
To all the men intimidated by successful and innovative women, take that floppy thing between your legs and MOVE THE F OVER. .
Nobody in the travel space has time for your misogyny and bigotry. 👋 ⠀⠀ @sheswanderful
Most certainly just in a parking lot here. 😂🤷🏻♀️
One difference about the West Coast to the Midwest, it’s kind of a strange concept to chill in a van here. People would come up and start conversation with us when we were building it out in San Diego last year. Now whenever we’re in it with our doors open, people tend to just give us weird looks and avoid us. 😂
It’s been a slow process, because ya know, life. 🤷🏻♀️ But here are some areas we are adding to the new build:
✖️ A work space
✖️ Sleeping area for Delilah
✖️ Upper cabinets + better storage in general
✖️ Rooftop deck 🙌🏼🙌🏼
✖️ Awning (I want one/Quentin is cool without. So still playing rock, paper, scissors over this one because that’s how we resolve most things. 🙃)
& as many of you already know, we’re paying off all of our debt. Basically working our butts off, so we can have more of the financial freedom we’d like. 🧡
Pretty excited to see how everything comes together, and where this journey is taking us. What a long strange trip it’s been. (👈🏼 who can tell me where that’s from? 😏)

We love seeing our Girl In The Wild gear in the wild, in mountains we’ve never been too, along rivers we’ve never explored, in valleys we’ve never camped in. We love it because every time we see a picture of a woman living her best life, feelin’ wild and free (like Hongtong here in BC’s Kootenay Mountains wearing our Adventure Leggings) we imagine all the girls rising. Just like this. All the girls who will follow in her footsteps because she was brave enough to just be herself, without apology. To do what she loves. To be who she is.
And so is this movement.
Everything we sell on our site—tanks, tees, journals, leggings, firestarters—fund free confidence-boosting camps for teenage girls in wild spaces just like this. #girlsaregonnarise 📷 @cmacfishtales
Kabul surely is the most mind blowing city I have ever experienced . Simply because almost every previous expectation I had was defied. This city is so... I have no words.
I saw and experienced sides of it I never heard in pop media. I definitely owe heavily to my many Kabulian friends, who have been so kind and caring to me. Showing me places, introducing me to cool people.
Most of all thank you Gull for hosting me with your family. I was so welcomed to the community and really felt like part of the family. @silkroadafghanistantravel

There is a powerful 2 letter word I have (finally) been using more frequently these days:
How hard can that be?
I have been a people please and a “yes” girl since the beginning of time, so I struggled saying nuh-uh to people my entire life.
It was not until this year that I realized I had enough, started to really enforce boundaries and say the word without feeling any (unnecessary) shame or guilt.
I have learned overtime to reserve my yes-es for the activities and people that truly energize me, bring me to life, and allow me to be the best version of myself.
It makes a huge difference when I am more selective in where and what my attention and energy goes to.
And when things or people start to drain me of my energy... I know it might be time to re-evaluate.
Or, if I simply just don’t feel like going somewhere or doing something - I recognize it’s more than OK to decline without an excuse. No can be a full sentence.
And no, this is still not easy for me most times... but practice certainly makes it easier. 🦋 #nofomohere

Summer is coming to an end but Thursday night group runs continue every week. All weather and all season long. 🤘🏼🌧☀️🍂☃️
Ladies group run meets at @roguevalleyrunners on Thursday’s at 5:45pm and we start running by 6pm. We will run for an hour and afterwards grab some grub at a local place. This is meant to be a chill, social run! ALL paces are welcome and no one will be left behind. Get outside and share the trails with some badass ladies 🤘🏼🏃🏽♀️🏃🏽♀️🏃🏽♀️ #runwow
Can we just rewind to the summer holidays so I can explore with my favourite person again please?

When I was a kid and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I never could have imagined I'd someday be sitting on balconies and terraces around the world working on my laptop. Working remotely online wasn't even a thing when I was that age! How crazy is that?
Notes to self:
*Anything is possible. If laptops and internet and Google were created out of nothing, who knows what other cool shit's gonna rock our world in future years? 🤯
*Be grateful every single day that you get to do this. Be grateful to have a level of freedom that generations before you were never able to enjoy. And don't forget to pat yourself on the back once in awhile for how far you've come. 💪🏻
Life can be tough.
You can’t stop the waves.... But you CAN learn to surf!

One of the activities @adidaswomen organized for us during our weekend getaway in Garmisch-partenkirchen was SUP-ing on the Eibsee lake which is supposed to be the most beautiful in Europe. It was really nice, but Im not sure about the most beautiful part heheheh 😄

Peaks have become my favorite type of hikes. The expansive 360° views, that feeling of being on top of the world.. it's a high all of its own. It's also a great challenge. Climbing 1000's of feet in elevation on unstable terrain is no joke and sometimes takes every ounce of energy and determination to keep pushing through. But knowing what lies at the top will always have me coming back for more.
↟↟↟If I had a penny for every time I failed... or felt like I wasn’t enough...started to believe maybe this is it for me. Time to give up and get a “real” job. Maybe I’m really not supposed to achieve my dreams... maybe it’s just not meant to be...
God I’m so happy I never gave up... over all these years, despite all the times I came so close
Life has been so crazy but so good to me lately I almost don’t even know what to do with myself 💛😭 It’s been my dream to be supporting myself through my creative passions my entire life...
The truth is, we are meant to thrive not just to struggle, grind and survive. Although sometimes that’s what it takes to get there
Waking up in my own bed this morning after the past few months of nonstop travel and work, I feel like it’s finally starting to hit me that this is real... that I actually did it...
Gonna have to let that settle in for a bit, not gonna lie it’s all a bit surreal still #notetoself
