Cuối tuần rồi toi đi Hội An và tìm thấy một nơi rất xinh vậy luôn, này là cổng của một ngôi trường lâu đời, mới nhìn lại còn tưởng là cổng đình cơ. Đứng trước đây chắc phải mặc một chiếc áo dài thì mới hợp lí nhỉ 🍃 #beautispotsproject

-40C outside +30C inside❄️🔥

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." ~ Martin Luther King For better or worse, and usually for better, #travel is one of the things that can be consistently counted on to change a person. Our richest #experiences in each place are when we connect with locals and become a #partoftheirworld 🌍. This peaceful #scenicoverlook is across the street from our favorite pizza joint 🍕 in the tiny village of Ceglie Messapica. We were introduced to the owner on our first night in town. A few weeks later, he saw us walking home from the farmer's market in town and stopped to offer us a ride home. At that time, we couldn't exactly remember if we knew him or not. But, we could tell he was a friendly person looking to help us out and we hopped in his car without question. We would NEVER do this in the US! 😳 Okay...maybe if we were in small town America and we were comfortable with the locale, but only then!!! After a bit of driving 🚗 around because I gave him incorrect driving directions, he was able to figure out where we were staying based on who our neighbor was. Ha! That's the beauty of small town living in any country. ❤ Everyone knows everyone. ❤

I’m taking over the @TravelAstoriaWarrenton for the next few days! I know, my job is so hard and you all feel really bad for me. I love Astoria! it’s one of my favorite drives from Portland. I have to get my ocean fix every now and again, you know? I’ve already hit up some of my favorite spots like Reveille Ciderworks/@astoriacider and @FortGeorgeBeer and I’m staying at The @CommodoreHotelAstoria for the first time! This hotel is the cutest. Anyway, better cut myself off now because tomorrow I HIKE! Check out the @TravelAstoriaWarrenton page to see what I’m up to xo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Astoria, Oregon.

I haven't been in my studio for over a week! . Life managed to creep in and come between me and my beloved. Some of you know my mom had recently passed so there has been a lot of physical and emotional organizing. I'm back home in Victoria and I received a large order of paints while I was away! Tommorow, we feast. . This painting is 'Taffy'. It's two paintings in one, and measures 24x36 inches it can be hung horizontally or vertically. It represents pure sweet emotion, unhindered by calculation or editing. Available for $825 plus shipping. . . . . . #alifeofbeauty #abstractartist #abstract_buff #abstractlandscape #decorateyourhome #nestandflourish #colorventures #visualcrush #flashesofdelight #todaysartreport #whereweroam #bohostyle #boholiving #keepitwild #exploretocreate #exploremore #createcultivate #inspiredwomen #finditliveit #sheexplores #homedecor #lovedecorating #midcenturydecor #wanderlust #travelwell #colorcrush #acrylicpainting #beautifullyboho #homeinspo

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” - Mary Oliver ☀️

Love the colourful houses in Gaylang, Singapore! Standing in front of my favourite, bright pink 😍

[Day 21/30] ⛰ Went out early to catch the sunrise here and it was definitely worth it 🌄 Love that this spot has views of the mountains & ocean 💙 #30dayshiking #hikecalifornia

I’m working on embracing the season I’m in instead of impatiently waiting the next one. The whole no bug thing in winter, 😏 yeaaa that’s good. If you aren’t from the south, you may not understand the absolute jungle we live in and the critters are no joke! I wouldn’t trade the sounds of a summer night for anything but having a break half the year makes it that much better.

The calm before the storm ⛅ . . The last few weeks have been so precious- extra time to sleep in, watch movies, clean our house before school starts again for me next week and we hit 6 months our for our wedding! Eek! Also thinking about a spring race!

“Beyond women, there’s all these groups that are coming up around diversity of all different kinds in the outdoors. Whether it’s LGBTQ, whether it’s body positivity, people of color, indigenous folks, I think there are all these groups that are connecting us with each other and bringing these conversations up to the forefront, especially at places like Outdoor Retailer or within the outdoor industry. I think it’s fantastic. I think there isn’t room for just one of us. I think the more of us there are, the more it going to become really obvious to the industry and the decision makers that they should paying attention to us and thinking about the things that we’re talking about.” - @shelmatic. It was awesome to talk with @thestokecast at the end of last year about what I’m excited about in our industry right now, how I transitioned from my full time urban planning job to my whirlwind job that I’ve pieces together and how I try to find balance through it all.

People often ask me why I started Girl In The Wild. The answer is a simple one: I had a really hard time for a really long time. And I think that ALL girls everywhere deserve to never ever spend three decades of their lives feeling like I did. Like less. They deserve to see their magic from the get-go and walk tall through the world because damnit, they’re incredible. And they're gonna know it and feel it and be it. You see, I was broken. The product of a childhood spent in deep self-loathing, a feeling that perpetuated into my adolescence and held on strong into adulthood, too. I was existing in a cloud of shame. And then I found the wild. Or perhaps it found me. The more time I spent in the trees and on mountain tops, in lakes and river beds, with knots in my hair and the breeze in my face, the more I realized my own worth. I gave my demons to the wind and a free bird emerged from the ashes with the same dimpled thighs I’d always had, but this time that handful of indents didn’t anchor me. Because I knew I was all good things in the world. And I was capable of all things. And it was time for the war I’d been waging to end. So I called a truce. And got to work making up for lost time. Until that moment, I had spent over two decades never wearing a swimsuit because I felt it was a disservice to people at the beach. I didn’t wear shorts because I thought people would talk about my thighs over dinner and laugh while passing the salt. And I didn’t go to my graduation, for the degree I worked my tail off for, because I didn’t want any pictures of me framed in pewter on my family’s mantel for everyone else to see—and judge. I wear bathing suits now, btw. Shorts too. And you can take my picture and I don’t care if it’s unflattering because a bad angle can’t break me. And if you want to give me an award, damn straight I’m going to walk on that stage and soak up that limelight no matter if my belly is bloated because dammit I earned it and I’m proud of me. My imperfections do not make me less; they make me human. Girl In The Wild will eradicate self-loathing for all girls for good. I will not settle for anything less. Let’s fly, birds!

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter. -MLK #martinlutherking

We've only waited nine weeks for this moment! . . Jake took a massive tumble yesterday so we took it easy today but oh how beautiful it was to get out in the mountains together, just laugh and enjoy each other's company! . . Recovery is a journey but as long as you keep the goals in the back of your mind. Reminding yourself constantly why, it's so worth it. . . Looking forward to getting stronger and closer to skiing with poles 😂

I haven't posted in a while because I have had to relearn how to teach full time and take on 2 grad classes all at once, not to mention stay focused on my health goals. Yikes, but I’ll get there! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I have managed to squeeze a few minutes into my days for some bullet journaling and reflection. It’s amazing what a few minutes can do to help set yourself up for a successful day, or end a busy day on a high note. These ladies are also a huge part of my support system (even if they don’t know it!). Hot tip: surround yourself with people who embody your values and goals. You’ll find yourself more motivated and much happier! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Fun note: @estereo_chicago has amazing vibes, delicious drinks, and a great vibe. Not only do 2 sides completely open up to the sunshine, but doggos are welcome as well! It’s a winner in my book. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #globalgrady #journey #healthy #wealthy #wise #goals #bulletjournal #chicago #estereochicago #motivationmonday

Went to Mt. Princeton hot springs today and it’s got me daydreaming of all the hot springs! We’re looking at a mountain bike tour of Idaho’s hot springs for the fall 😍

This little girl is such a trooper! Seriously though, through all of the break downs, plane rides, car rides, and pit stops she has been an absolute angel. All she requires is lots of love, play time, food, and being around us and she doesn’t make a peep. We couldn’t be luckier with a sweeter pup to join us on this ultimate adventure ✨

"When I am among the trees,  especially the willows and the honey locust, equally the beech, the oaks and the pines, they give off such hints of gladness. I would almost say that they save me, and daily. I am so distant from the hope of myself, in which I have goodness, and discernment, and never hurry through the world  but walk slowly, and bow often. Around me the trees stir in their leaves and call out, “Stay awhile.” The light flows from their branches. And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say, “and you too have come into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled with light, and to shine.” By Mary Oliver

i’ll remember this day forever. it’s the day @ryanmaum and i did 4 different hikes within 24 hours + broke our record of most miles hiked in a day 🙌🏼 no better place to do it than out in Sedona! _ we started the first trail at sunrise with headlamps and finished the day on top of a mountain at sunset with headlamps for the 2000ft back down (basically like hiking up and down lookout mountain for you chattanooga peeps!) _ it’s amazing what the human body can do when you set your mind on something. i truly believe we can endure way more than we think we can at times. this was one of those days for me 💭 what’s an experience you’ve had where you’ve endured more than you thought you could?

It’s that time of year when @ameliawb convinces me to play in the snow, even when I’m worried about the cold (see ice hair 🤦🏻‍♀️). Winter adventures definitely take more preparation, but are always worth it. #friendswhosayyes #winteradventures #sheexplores

Pretty sure I was born curious. >>----------> From my earliest memories till now, learning has always been fun for me. But not just knowing the answers. I like to know the WHY behind them. Dig deeper. Investigate. Understand. >>----------> There's a distinct difference between knowing and understanding. Knowing is like memorizing for a test, then forgetting what you learned because it never really sank in. I remember what I learn soooo much better when I understand the details, the process, the reason something is the way it is or why it happened when it did. >>----------> Am I babbling? Does this make sense? If not, well here's the takeaway: My innate curiosity for understanding is what drives me to explore... to step beyond my comfort zone... to not just believe that something is, but also experience it for myself. >>----------> Do you live curiously?

Who’up for cooking? . haha! This is what I certainly like being location. Independent. You can do things that you barely do on your regular working day hours. . I’m making a bowl of “Macaroni Salad” as my family is coming for lunch! . So good to be home for a while now😊 . By the way don’t forget to “CLICk” the link in my bio as you hit like on this photo!

Late to the party, and not really worth the wait. We found a cool spot out in the desert in Arizona to shoot the Great Blood Werewolf Super Moon Eclipse of 2019, or whatever it was called, but my attempt was thwarted. We watched the moon rise, light up the desert for a few minutes, and then get obscured by clouds for the rest of the night. So this is all you get. I rarely plan my shots, but when I do, they never come out. My favorite shots are always the unplanned ones where I just get lucky. 😎 Shot Jan. 2019 #visitarizona #ig_arizona

Last Night's Full moon over Runaway Bay, Queensland.

This girl.. I can look at her and pick out every flaw. Every wrinkle, every unwanted roll and blemish, every awkward face and word she said at that get together that one time that she'll over analyze and agonize over why she is the way she is. But I'm trying not to. This girl is gone. It seems that often in trying to find ourselves, we ultimately lose ourselves. We lose the futures we thought we'd have with the people we fought so hard to keep with us. We lose the strength we were sure we had and we find it again in unexpected places. Little by little, gains and losses.The waves come and go. Today someone told me to surf through it. And I liked that. This girl, at the top of the mountain with her sisters...the crew that started the hike despite the cold and the rain and the unknown to stumble upon a rainbow at the top. She's going to surface again. She's going to come back changed. With different eyes and a different heart. She's a little quiet now, but I can still feel her sometimes. She still stirs at the sound of the wind in the leaves and the night shot that shows all the stars your eyes can't see. See you at the summit, sis. 🖤

Feeling real grateful for this lady tonight. @courtpm rescued me from the Providence, RI train station tonight when Amtrak vaguely decided not to run any trains tonight and also not to tell anyone. She also kept me from falling off the mountain while I posed like a goof . . Thanks Courtney for an amazing weekend in the mountains, full of yummy food, deep laughs, drinks, eclipses and hot tubs. And sorry that you literally cant get rid of me tonight! . . My snowshoes have now traveled from NJ > Dallas > Boston > New Hampshire > Rhode Island in the last week all to make it for our hike Saturday with @the_colorblind_photographer and @pete_g_ri totally worth it to see the Whites in winter. . . . #womenwhohike #wwhmember #sheexplores #girlgetoutside #getoutside #bigoutdoors #optoutside #wildernextgen #staywild #mountaingirls #forceofnature #wanderlust #trailchat #hiking #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #discoverearth #exploremore #goatworthy #chaseyourgoat #trailchat #goeast #epiceveryday # #wildwomen #wonderfulwildwomen #hikenh #teamwinter #hikethewhites #newhampshire

Happy birthday to the one who holds our dreams, ambitions, convictions and passions with me. The future is all but certain, and I would relinquish all certainty to sojourn with you. ✨ Here’s to many more adventures, including nose-smushing kisses on the beach. 💋

already missing sitting on top of mountains in colorado hammocking, painting, drawing + just being still (or at least trying... i’ve never been the best at sitting still-sorry mom haha)... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ for now, i’ll just draw on these pictures + remember the views we saw 🖤 can’t wait to go back! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ do you have a place that you absolutely love visiting + go whenever there’s a chance? that’s colorado for us!!! i’d love to hear your places! we love traveling + visiting new places! i’m always down to get new ideas of where to explore 🤘🏻

Keeping on that Asia trend because let's face it. I'm obsessed. Please Google Yangshuo, China and add it to your must-see list. You will not be dissspointed.

R e b u i l d ❤️ I am fascinated by the process of rebuilding - our lives after a tragedy, our homes after a storm. The pieces always come back together stronger than they were before. This happened to me personally after I lost my father to cancer, and it’s happening now in a place I love very much, the Virgin Islands. I spent all day Friday helping rebuild a roof on a community recreation center that was torn apart by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. It was *hard* work, especially in the hot island sun, but that roof is going to be nearly hurricane proof after we’re done with it. The storms of life are the exact same way - it’s hard work - but if you stick with it you are going to come out stronger than you ever thought was possible and the next storm isn’t going to knock you down so hard. You can check out the highlight reel in my bio called “USVI Hurricanes” to catch up on the post-storm situation and the relief work we did last week. The best thing you can do to help is plan a trip here! Tourism is their lifeline to a full recovery. You can also donate to the rebuilding process. I would recommend donating to Kenny Chesney’s foundation called Love for Love City because they work with a variety of organizations here to get the funds into the hands of those who need it the most. It’s 💛 I also hope to get a small group together sometime this year to do both - vacation here and donate a portion of our time to relief efforts. If you’re interested please send me a DM or let me know below! (Photographer: @crownimagesvi)

We spent the weekend on top of the mountains skiing our hearts out with great people. My favorite kind of weekend 🏔

Thank you Martin Luther King Jr. for all the sacrifices you made for the fight for civil rights. We still have such a long way to go and now more than ever it is important to stick together and push forward. Some of my favorite quotes: 1.) "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy". 2.) "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends". 3.) "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter". 4.) "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #heatherlake#winter#winterwonderland#snow#washington#pnw#upperleftusa#pnwonderland#pnwlife#hike#hiking#beautiful#outdoors#nature#getoutside#optoutside#roamtheplanet#exploretocreate#welivetoexplore#explore#adventure#womenwhohike#womenwhoexplore#pnwcollective#washingtontrails#northwestisbest#visualsoflife#sheexplores#letsgosomewhere#washingtonexplored

I was lucky enough to catch a few photos of the Lunar Eclipse last night! Despite the fact that it was cloudy all day here in the PNW, nature pulled through and gave us a few moments to view this beauty 🌗❤️
