Go and read our latest post about Sanna’s solo trip to Miami.
“I cannot believe I’m really writing this but here are my recommendations where to party in Miami”
“Somewhere out there is a swing that misses you.” As I get older... I feel wiser and more confident in my own skin. I’ve learned from my mistakes and have embraced life’s challenges as best as I can. However, I’ve never forgotten the child that lives in each of us. Our inner child that reminds us to never lose the ability to value the small wonders of life. So keep swinging away! #kikiontheriver#miami#florida#travelwithcherryl
Miami is hit or miss for some people, but I love it because I always save money when I have long layovers and because it’s Miami, it’s never boring!
Miami can be expensive, but here are some things you can do to keep your time there cheap:
South Beach (jump on the 110 bus from the Miami airport for $2.25)
-chill on the beach (bring a towel because chairs are expensive !)
- Take advantage of Happy Hour food specials by the beach
- Splurge on those huge @thesugarfactory Candy cocktails at least once -Get your steps in ! Walk along the beach or the many beach paths alongside the towering luxury condos.
-People watch on Ocean Drive. Guaranteed you’ll see some interesting people blasting music in expensive cars wanting to be seen. -Uber Pool. Miami has super cheap @uber pool prices
- Splurge and go to @yardbirdsouthern for some amazing Southern food and cocktails.
Wynwood is a cool area that has a ton of street art and little museums. You can walk around for hours checking out all the different art. .
If you have a layover of at least 4 hours, you should go and explore!
What are some of your favorite things to do in Miami?
Tomorrow I’m taking my first solo flight ✈️ My anxiety makes flying seem almost impossible with all the variables especially with the security checks 😬 Luckily, I’ll be greeted with the face of this absolute gem when I land in glorious Glasgow! 💎 Bring on the adventure! 💪🏻

At first, I wanted to make this caption, “Just climbed the tallest sand dune in North America. No big deal.” But then I thought about it and decided I wanted to be more real than that.
Climbing a sand dune isn’t a big deal to a lot of people. Hell, climbing a sand dune isn’t even that big of a deal to me. What I’m truly excited about is what climbing this sand dune represents for me: the fact that I’m living my life to the absolute fullest right now. I mean, I hiked 10 miles total in order to get to the top of this dune, am 95% sure I was the only person to hike it that day, and I navigated it solo! How many people get to say that?
My biggest fear has always been that I will get to the end of my life and have regrets that I didn’t do more. And now I feel like I’m absolutely crushing that fear 👊🏻😊
(ENG⬇️) Hay varias rutas para llegar a Machupicchu, 🎒yo fui desde Cuzco con combi a Hidroeléctrica 🚐 y allí andé dos horitas 🥾por la via del tren hasta Aguascalientes. 🛤
Para subir de madrugada al Machupicchu y llegar antes que nadie, 😉 tienes que subir a pie. ⏰A las 5am abren el puente para empezar a subir escaleras hacia Machupicchu, pero te recomiendo llegar antes para no encontrarte con una enooooorme cola. 😬 La subida es bastante dura, pero no tanto como la del Huaynapicchu. 😵
Para los que se les pegan las sábanas y no les gusta andar 🚌, hay también buses durante toda la mañana, que suben hasta la puerta de las ruinas, esto sí, entonces Machupicchu ya está lleno de gente por todos lados. 😱
🌄 Yo tuve la suerte de ver el paisaje con niebla, sol y lluvia, durante la misma mañana. ⛅️ Un paisaje difícil de olvidar.
🇬🇧There are several routes to get to Machupicchu.🎒I went from Cuzco with a combi to Hidroeléctrica 🚐 and there I walked two hours 🥾 by the train track to Aguascalientes. 🛤
To get up to Machupicchu at dawn and arrive before anyone else, 😉 you have to climb on foot. ⏰ At 5am they open the bridge to start climbing stairs to Machupicchu, but I recommend you arrive earlier so as not to meet a huge line 😬 The climb is quite hard, but not as much as Huaynapicchu. 😵
For those who stick the sheets and do not like to walk 🚌, there are also buses throughout the morning, which go up to the door of the ruins, but yes, then Machupicchu is already full of people everywhere. 😱
🌄 I was lucky to see the landscape with fog, sun and rain ⛅️ A landscape difficult to forget.

I ALWAYS HATED HIKING.
I’m not an outdoors person. Super not. I never liked hiking or camping, and avoided those activities at all costs.
Until this summer. I went camping once, and last week I went on a 10-mile, moonlit hike to the summit of a mountain. And I actually enjoyed myself. I wouldn’t have, if it weren’t for my brother’s words of wisdom before I set out on the camping trip. He said:
You know, nobody likes sleeping on the ground.
I know it’s simple, but it blew my mind. I thought outdoorsy people loved every second of a camping or hiking experience. And since I didn’t, I figured those things weren’t for me.
Not so! His words helped me think of it like a transaction. You pay a fee to get a reward.
The fee for the 10-mile hike I did was a blister on my pinkie toe, a chapped nose and ice-cold hands at the mountain’s summit, sore muscles for the next few days (and counting!), and general exhaustion and frustration for the last two miles that dragged on.
The rewards were great conversation with friends on the way, Olive Garden breadsticks I stashed to snack on along the way too, a stunning sunset and mountain/city views, a cup of champagne at the summit, and the extra bonus of 1,894 calories burned.
Spoiler alert: the most rewarding experiences in our lives generally aren’t easy and 100% fun. It’s the same with solo travel.
These types of experiences are Type Two fun.
I wrote a blog post about this topic, so check the link in bio to learn more about:

SOMOS 3K! 🎂❤
Eu fiquei em dúvida de fazer um post comemorando 3 mil seguidoras🙈. Será que não fica chato? Será que vai parecer que esse perfil é daqueles que buscam likes e seguidores a qualquer custo? No meio de tantos perfis com 20k, 100k, quem liga pra 3k???
Mas aí eu pensei que eu passei anos e anos frustrada no meu emprego de escritório, achava que o que eu fazia não trazia nada de bom pra ninguém. E hoje, mesmo tendo só 3 mil seguidoras eu vejo um montão de comentários de mulheres que tão organizando uma viagem sozinha ou que pensam em fazer um safari porque descobriram que nao é caro nem perigoso, que tomaram coragem pra fazer couchsurfing, ficar em hostel...
Fodam-se os números. Pra mim é uma vitória enorme e eu vou comemorar sim! Que bom que eu faço bem para vocês, porque VOCÊS ME FAZEM UM BEM DANADO! ❤❤❤❤❤
Eu queria dizer só: OBRIGADA!!!
E vamo nessa, nos apoiando somos cada vez mais fortes 💪

Looking at this photo while trying to think of a caption, I suddenly realized how few people you can see in it. This was a surprise because, in reality, there were SO MANY people in the park playing in these dunes right in front of me. They were just a few hundred feet to the left. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes at the parks it can feel like the hundreds and even thousands of tourists there on any given day ruin the magic of such a beautiful place. That is, until you step out onto the trail past the viewpoint. I’m finding more and more that taking the time and effort to walk just a little bit further than where the crowd has stopped rewards you with privacy, better views, and a feeling of being more connected with nature 🌱🌎 #hippiethoughts
I’d love to do that - if I only had company.
Wengage is the app that empowers an in-the-moment connection for company - when you feel like going out —and you’d rather have good company than go alone or miss out. Maybe you are unsure about navigating a city by yourself, or you find it more interesting to share an experience. Either way…with Wengage, you've got company to go out - Right Now! #WengageApp

Took my favorite Swede to my favorite mountains. Will miss both so much. ☀️🏔
🛫 While being in Vietnam I felt very uncomfortable and out of my element. There are motorbikes EVERYWHERE, I felt uncomfortable even while walking on the streets. Thankful for the experience and the learning I did in that week.
What's the most valuable lesson you've learnt while travelling? 🤓
There is no cap on the amount of happiness you’re allowed to pursue. Your life is yours. Your dreams are yours. And you hold the power to give yourself all the happiness that you deserve. The only thing stopping you, is you.✨🖤 📷: Martina for @flytographer in San Diego #newprofilepic 😉
I’m a visual person. I could never tell anyone the street names to turn on to get to my apartment, but I can tell you what color the houses are on each corner. I look at photos from 20 years ago and remember what shoes I had on outside of the frame. The image brings me back. Reminds me of the moment. Good and bad.
I woke up to a nasty comment on one of my photos. It happens enough that you think I might be “used to it by now” but it still bothered me. I think of the old story, the princess and the pea. The princess has a sleepless night atop 20 feather beds — the result of just one pea under the mattress. It sounds so ridiculous. But whenever I read one of those comments I’m reminded that that’s me.
I think it’s all of us to a degree. Negative things hold more weight. We ruminate over them more. Dwell on the one thing instead of the hundreds of good and positive things.
But, luckily, knowing I react this way is a first step. You see, while I don’t know if I’ll ever “get used to it” I do have the tools to move past it faster. To focus on the positive things in my life. Savor them. Look at photos like this one. It brings me back. To a moment that was so perfect I cried when I saw it.
When I look at this photo I remember the feeling of the breeze, the smell of the dirt after the rain — and I’m lost in those emotions instead. And I’m focusing on those.

Embrace every opportunity to leave your comfort zone, stamp your passport, practice a foreign language, and walk away amazed at this life.
WOW what a long week this has been. I went back to work and worked 72 hours this week 😱 Naturally, im already browsing flights, planning my next conquest. But I can’t even relay how incredible Peru was.
I have so much more to share, write, post. My to-do list grows every day. But at the end of it all, I am so grateful for the opportunities I have and the places I’ve been. So this week I’m hiding from the Sunday scaries as I cover myself in gratitude. What are you grateful for today?
≪ oui à la vie ≫⠀
“So many terrible things can happen when you travel solo” he said. “Yes, but you know what? So many beautiful things can happen too.” — Amazing things can happen if you just say yes to life ! Double tap if you agree ♥♥♥ #visitparis#femalesolotravel

Oh, Sedona. You pretty thing, you. 💛
I felt more balanced & at peace while I was in Sedona than I have in months. That kind of energy is addicting & I doubt I’ll be able to stay away for long. 💫 Where have you gone that gave you those kind of feelings?
On the blog today is a new post with how to spend a few days in this magical little town. Click the link in my bio to check it out. 🤗
I’ve been living in a dream the last few days. I didn’t check off any new National Parks, but I did something I’ve dreamed about for years.
I visited Northern New Mexico for the first time about 4 years ago, and I’ve been back well over 10 times since. It’s truly magical. For all of those years I’ve dreamed of riding a horse through the mystical high desert — and this week I did. I honestly shed some tears, it was so perfect.
I graduated from college 12 years ago today. I posted a photo in my story, and it made me realize how different I am from what I was then. The expectations that I had then compared to where I’ve ended up.
My goals and dreams 12 years ago were just as valid. I accomplished just as much. Lived according to the same values. But my how changed. The way in which I expressed those values. The way I live them out is very different now. The girl in that graduation photo wouldn’t have the goal of riding a horse through the desert. And that’s okay.
I think a lot of the famous illustration of the caterpillar and butterfly. “You’ve changed” the caterpillar says. The butterfly responds:
We’re supposed to.
