Overwhelmed by the dancing of The Northern Lights above the earth
NEW BLOG POST: seeing the Northern Lights is a miracle, but a little bit preparation helped me to really catch it. On my blog you will find some essential tips for seeing and photographing The Northern Lights in Finland, including:
- where & when is the best time to see the aurora
- using the forecast of Finnish Meteorological Institute is very helpful
- go in a place far away from any sources of light pollution
Also, you will find the right settings of the camera for shooting The Northern Lights
NEW BLOG POST ✨ I’m sure you’re all sick of hearing about this bloody North Coast 500 road trip but day 2 has just gone live on my blog!!! lol
This is my FAV pic of Alfie from our holiday (maybe ever??). He looks so well behaved, sitting for the pic, but that’s only cause I was holding his tennis ball behind the camera 🙃 click the link in my bio to see more daft pics of Alfie and find out what we got up to on the next leg of our journey 🚎
Rooftop season is almost here 😍. Seattle had amazing weather last week which called for a bottle of @elevenwinery to take in the views ✨. We had a blast with our two giveaway winners @toriskye23 & @kickerkat at @thesoundhotel and are excited to do more fun giveaways this year! Stay tuned ☺️

🇺🇸🌉 I try to add on seeing something new to all my business trips if there’s time. I’ve been to San Francisco several times but never seen the famous Painted Ladies from the Full House intro, so I was glad when I got to attend a symposium in Mountain View and had the time to drive up! #latergram
Sleighing through the week like ⛷️
or in other words what do you do when there's not enough snow to ski. 😂
When I was a kid and still didn't know how to ski I loved to sleigh. I prefer skiing nowadays, but the love for the sleigh remains, even though i barely fit on it. 😂
Swipe right➡️ to see a photo of mini me on the very same spot, probably 22 years ago. 🙄
Here is a picture of me skipping HAPPILY on the streets of Madrid 💃
I heard Madrid is not worth visiting again n again. Travelling is very subjective but I LOVED Madrid more than Barcelona. It has so much history, I had no idea, it reminded me of tiny Rome.
This was also the first time Hassam and I stayed in a hostel. Most places in the city centre were booked, the remaining were super expensive. We prefer to stay within walking distance to the main attractions. I convinced Hassam that staying in a hostel as a couple will be a different experience! and guess what? He loved it.
Here are the benefits of staying in a hostel;
✨Inexpensive - Savings lots of money. Breakfast is included - nothing extravagant. You also have access to a shared kitchen. Backpackers cook their own meals to save even more $$
✨Meeting people - we would play board games in the lounge at night and we met these two guys who lived in Madrid and gave us some juicy local tips. I always met some interesting ppl around the world because I stayed mostly in hostels
✨Free activities offered - We took a free walking tour and learned so much about Madrid which we wouldn't have on our own. The hostel offered so many more activities like these
✨Security - If you're nervous about security, Hostels have very strict guest policies. MGM takes this seriously n will kick you out for breaking the rules. Do look for hostels that offer lockers and bring your own padlock ✨Some Hostels offer private rooms for couples - We had a private room in the hostel but shared common spaces. It's slightly more expensive but still cheaper than a hotel
That being said, as always you need to do your due diligence when booking a hostel. Book hostels with ratings above 8, read the reviews and make sure the hostel is not in a sketchy neighbourhood. Bring earplugs or a blindfold if you're a light sleeper. Speak to the management if there is a problem, they will help you out. I once got a hostel switched without paying anything extra because I was uncomfortable around the guests in the lounge once.
Also, I use Hotels.com to book hotels and hostels.DM any other question you may have. Happy to answer them.
After spending one month in Italy, you really start missing that Italian food! Thank you so much to @aquaforte.galle for hosting us to try 7 different courses of their menu. It’s the most authentic Italian food in Sri Lanka and it really satisfied that craving 😋 The Tagliatelle Al Ragu Bolognese and tiramisu were my favorite !
Check out my stories for a full breakdown of their 7 course meal!
What’s your favorite Italian dish? | AD #aquaforte#aquafortegalle#aquaforterestaurant
🇮🇹 SWIPE 👈🏽 too see EPIC views of this town 🤩
Sorry for the fake out, but we found some more forgotten amazing footage from Tuscany and wanted to share it! 😅
I know many of you have been excited for our Sri Lanka trip but we promise it's coming in a few days 🙏🏽
This is Cortana, a town perched up high on a mountain. We were literally above the clouds when we arrived early morning! 🌫️
It took us 4-5 hours to walk through this town early in morning and capture this amazing moment 🚶🏻♀️🚶🏽♂️
Peep the cute old Italian men in the corner ! Living la dolce vita! ‼️
We'll be starting our Sri Lanka series with something very exciting! It's been a long time waiting.
Any guesses what it could be ⁉️
😪The bad news is time flies.
😀The good news is you are the pilot.✈

रंगरेज़ मेरे दो घर क्यूँ रहे, एक ही रंग में दोनो घर रंग दे...... .
The place of hijras/Kinnar/third-Gender in Indian culture dates back to the Ramayana, a more-than 2,000 year-old Hindu epic poem venerated and performed across India.
In the text, when the God-king Ram is exiled from the holy city of Ayodhya, the entire kingdom started following him into the forest. He orders them to turn back, but when Ram returned after 14 years, finds the hijras were waiting for him at the same spot.
Impressed by their devotion, he grants them the power to invoke blessings and curses on people.
For centuries, though their lives were far from easy, hijras/kinnars held a special role in India's royal courts, tasked with guarding harems and rising to influential positions.
Today, despite their legal recognition, many still face prejudice in what is a conservative country, forced into sex work or seeking alms at weddings and births, a long-held practice among hijras.

💛 Instagram vs. Real life oder, worauf du achten musst, wenn du perfekte Reisebilder machen willst:
“Das scheint super spaßiger Tag gewesen zu sein. Wie gut, dass genau in diesem Moment: Die Sonne perfekt durch die Bäume scheint, das Kleid die passende Farbe zum Hintergrund hatte, die Haare nach einem kompletten Tag Sightseeing noch ideal aussahen”
Wie es wirklich abläuft:
📸 Wir müssen um 6:14 Uhr dort sein, weil dann die Sonne perfekt steht.
📸 Der Park öffnet um 8:00 Uhr, lass uns um 7:45 Uhr schon dort sein, damit keine Menschen im Hintergrund sind.
📸 Der Hintergrund dort ist grün, also werde ich ein orangenes Kleid tragen, um einen Farbkontrast zu erzeugen.
📸 Den Hut brauche ich zwar nicht, schleppe ihn aber mit weil er gut in’s Bild passt.
📸 Lass uns hier noch ein paar Blumen hinlegen, um einen Bokeh Effekt zu erzeugen, der Tiefe verleiht. So, als wären sie hier vom Baum gefallen.
📸 Das Hotelzimmer ist schon hammer, aber könnten wir das vielleicht umräumen zwecks Bildaufteilung?
📸 Wir sind hier jetzt zwar 2h auf diesen Berg im Morgengrauen gewandert, aber es ist so bewölkt, lass uns am besten Morgen für’s Bild nochmal wiederkommen.
📸 Ich will eigentlich nur kurz dahin, um ein Foto zu machen. Danach können wir gehen.
👌🏼 Das sind alles Aussagen, die ich definitiv und genau so schonmal getroffen habe.
Dass perfekte Reisefotos super spontan nach 10h Sightseeing entstehen und man zufällig passend gekleidet ist, ist eine absolute Illusion.
Wenn ich Bilder machen gehe, dann schaue ich vorher wo die Sonne aufgeht, stimme meine Kleidung passend zur Umgebung ab und bin zur richtigen Zeit, beim richtigen Wetter am richtigen Ort.
Lustigerweise ist dieses Foto fast das einzige Bild, was super spontan und ungeplant entstanden ist!
❓𝓦𝓱𝓪𝓽 𝓭𝓸 𝔂𝓸𝓾 𝓽𝓱𝓲𝓷𝓴
Machst du eher Schnappschüsse auf Reisen und fragst dich immer, wie die ganzen anderen es schaffen perfekte Reisefotos zu haben? Oder planst du das bereits genauso wie ich?
💾 𝓢𝓪𝓿𝓮 𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝓣𝓲𝓹𝓹
Um deine Bilder nichtmehr dem Zufall zu überlassen.
AFTER ➡️ BEFORE (the gondolier was giving me a HARD look during this photo lol)
I have been using @lightroom to edit my photos for years now. I thought it might be cool to create presets based off of my travels and sell them for cheap on my website. Would anyone be interested? Let me know!!
Athens. One of the world's oldest cities. A city with a big, chaotic heart. Full of history. Art. Music. Incredible views. Fantastic food. A City that reinvented itself many, many times. Always changing. For me one of the coolest cities in Europe. Also a fashion paradise! The Greeks really understand and love aesthetics. ❤
Flew into Surabaya and meet-up with the Boyz @samazon and @herringadventures, the next day we took a 4h train to Malang. Enough hours to take some epic photos of us leaning out of the train.
The price for the ticket was 80cent, which still blows my mind!
Anyway also got my nickname for the adventure, the two brothers said I looked like Simba of the Lion King in the first picture 😂 .
What do you guys think? Does Simba fits me?

One of the most beautiful things about traveling is the friendships you build. Even though we all come from different countries, cultures and backgrounds, we have one thing in common: we're travelers. That urge to explore, to seek adventure, live in different places, that's what we recognize in each other.
While in a place like this, you get to know people very fast. You go deep and get close way faster than you usually would. In the past two and a half months in Mazunte, but also during the past two years of traveling, I've met so many magical souls and I'm so grateful for that! You can travel solo, but you're never really alone. Love you guys 💜

I'm currently getting to know more about the southern city of Chiayi (嘉義). One of the many spots you can go to have relaxing day, take a walk and enjoy nature is the city park (嘉義公園). It is located along the hilltop landscape and quite big, which gives it a great scenery.
Though you can't get a view of the city from the park itself, you can have a beautiful view if you go to the top of the Sun-Shooting Tower (射日塔). At 62m high, the design of the tower was inspired by the giant trees in Ali Mountain (Alishan) (阿里山). The tower has a bronze sculpture that originates from the "sun shooting myth" of the aboriginal people which is very inspiring.
When you're at the top, the view of the city is beautiful. It is such a wonderful landscape. You really need to come to southern Taiwan and check this park and tower.

How’s this for greenery in Singapore 😛🌿✨
This is one of the coolest photo ops in the city, imo! The first time I ever went there were like four wedding shoots going on at once 👰🏻 But if you’re patient you will get your turn 📸
To find it, just search ‘spiral staircase photo spot’ on google maps. It’s located in Fort Canning Park, which is also absolutely gorgeous to take a leisurely stroll through.
Photo tip: bring your widest lens! I shot this on 24mm on accident when using my newest @sigmaphoto lens, thinking I was shooting wider, and didn’t realize until I had left that I was not on 16mm after all 😂 It was my first time breaking it out, oops. But now it’s my new favorite 🙌🏽
[Eng below] Dikkat Küba planı olanlar için kaydetmelik bilgiler içerir❗️
Küba’da herkes farklı bir şey bulmuştur mutlaka, fakat giden herkesin gönlünü fetheden yegane şehir sanırım Trinidad. Sömürge dönemine ait neo-barok yapılar, arnavut kaldırım sokaklar, rengarenk evler; sevdiğim herşeyin aynı şehirde toplanması kalp ben. 💙 O yüzden Küba’yla ilgili soru soran herkese mutlaka Trinidad’ın da listeye eklenmesi gerektiğini inatla söylüyorum. Havana’dan haftanın 2 günü kalkan konaklamalı turlarla Trinidad’a ulaşabilirsiniz. Büyük otellerin hepsinde bu turlar satılıyor. 4 şehir birden görme imkanınız oluyor. Tura ayak uydurmak istemeyenler için diğer bir seçenek colectivo taksiyle şehirden şehire geçmek. Hem daha ucuz hem daha maceralı. Zamanı geniş olanlar için tavsiye edilir. 👆🏼Ben turların gününe uyamadığım için taksiyle anlaşıp 3 şehir turunu taksiyle tamamladım. Bu da diğer bir seçeneğiniz ama pazarlığı sıkı yapmayı ihmal etmeyin. 😬
Caution Contains saveable information for those with a travel plan for Cuba❗️
Everyone must have found something different in Cuba, but I think Trinidad is the only city that conquers everyone's heart. Neo-baroque buildings, cobblestone streets, colorful houses ; It is the heart that everything I love is gathered in the same city. 💙 Therefore, I am stubbornly telling everyone who is asking questions about Cuba that Trinidad should be added to the list. You can reach Trinidad via accommodation tours departing from Havana 2 days a week. These tours are sold in all major hotels. You have the opportunity to see 4 cities at once. Another option for those who do not want to keep up with the tour is to go from city to city by colectivo taxi. It is both cheaper and more adventurous. It is recommended for those with large time. 👆🏼I could not fit the day of the tours, so I agreed with a taxi and completed the 3 city tours by taxi. This is another option, but don't forget to bargain! 😬
People have told me that I’m too sweet. I’m too kind. The truth is, each day I try my best to clear my energy so that I can show up in this world with a loving genuine heart. Wishing others well with prayer and positive energy. I believe in “living love” with my energy, my actions, my thoughts, my words and with images I capture and share. ⠀
At thirteen when I decided to keep my baby my journey as a young single mom began. It was challenging for so many reasons but it was also incredible. ⠀
I choose to see the good. I choose gratitude. I choose to believe in my dreams. I choose to accept my past and I embrace my present with a loving and hopeful heart. I choose to thrive. I choose to “live love” each day and positively impact the world around me with imagery and a loving Spirit. ⠀
To me success means surrounding myself with loving supportive people. Living out my dreams. Enjoying the journey. Believing in the best for myself and others. Making time to genuinely connect with myself and others. Sharing what I’ve learned. Caring and doing my best to show it. Capturing beauty worldwide. Sharing my work. Embracing all that I am. Shining bright.
As we heal, the world heals. 💛 live love. ⠀
Tamam kar kış seviyorum da şöyle eteklerin uçuştuğu, tenin bronz, saçların tuzlu olduğu günleri de özlemiyor değilim. Gerçi yapış yapış sıcaklar da bunaltıyor. Ama kışın da çok üşüyorum. 🙄 Çok kararsızım bu günlerde neden acaba? Aaa bakayım terazi burcuymuşum ben. 🤓
Okay, I love winter and snow but I miss the days when the skirts are flying, the skin is bronze and the hair is salty. Though sticky heat is also overwhelming. But I feel very cold in the winter. 🙄 Why am I so indecisive these days? Ahh, cause my horoscope sign is libra.🤓
