I am a little late to post, but Sunday was a very emotional day for me. I completed my 10 day solo trek of the TMB... This trail encompasses 33,000 ft in elevation gain over the course of 170 km through the Alps of France, Italy, and Switzerland.
It was the most incredible and emotionally/physically challenging experiences I have ever endured. I injured my knee on day 3 and was afraid I wouldn’t be able to complete the trail. However after taking a day off, I was able to continue and finished a day earlier than initially planned. I am so grateful to have been able to complete the trek, to the people I met along the way, and those who supported me throughout my journey. I am still in disbelief that this was all real. ♥

Men who talk about mental health is the new 6 pack... am I right? Haha! Ok, but I’m going to be real about this.
I remember when I was doing my Psychology degree. Mental health and the human experience is something I was so passionate about (and still am). When people would ask me what my major was, I felt embarrassed to tell them it was Psychology. Parts of me wished I had stayed in the film school just so that I could get a reaction of ‘that’s so cool’. I felt awkward about it because Psychology, therapy, and mental health were taboo to talk about, even just 8 years ago. I love that I have been seeing the shift that talking about mental health is not only becoming accepted, but something that is sexy. Emotional intelligence, knowing who you are, and caring for your mental health just as you would if you hurt your arm in a footy game. What do you guys think about this? Send us a message, I’m interested in hearing your thoughts. Shoutout to our friends @mightandmaneorg who are bringing this conversation to light and making a massive impact.

You know those days where you feel like everything around you is not going your way but you’re still trying to stay positive as much as possible? I feel like that has been my week and today I am tired. I already took a nap—Any tips on a pick me up? #thegnomadheart

I’m pretty sure I don’t have finger prints anymore after last weeks climb 🤘🥰
Currently stuck at the Toronto airport but dreaming of exploring Berlin with @deyounlm2 again. Hands down one of my favorite sister trips 👯♀️

Six years ago this week I was landing for the first time in the USA not knowing that this place would become my home. It was in this country 🇺🇲 that I found out my passion for photography, my passion for traveling and learned more about myself. Thankful for this past years and looking forward to see what the next years will be.

When Waze says I've arrived at my destination but when I look around... I'm at the roadside in the middle of nowhere. Takes a while to locate this tiny cosy space (next to the ocean!), but it's all worth it. Also, inside feels like a mini magical forest that seemingly breeds plant fairies that dart furtively on barks and leaves 🌿🍃💚
Galavanter @kavitathedentist weighs in on what drives her to Go Galavanting:
“I love to create beautiful, happy, healthy smiles through my work. But it’s no secret that dentistry is a stressful job!
Working with a tiny area on the scale of fractions of millimeters, all while having an expectation of perfection in my work, constantly keeps my mind and body at attention.
For me, there’s no better way to spend my leisure time than to go galavanting- getting lost in new places I’ve never explored and being surrounded by nature. It’s where I can feel completely free and at ease. No expectations of me or from me. Letting my inner wildflower bloom.🌾”

I’m not over summer yet. Don’t rush me!
If you’re looking for a New England weekend getaway while we still have these beautiful summer days, consider spending a weekend in Marblehead Massachusetts where they have the most scenic harbor and the largest collection of colonial era homes in the U.S.
When the @undiscover app becomes available you’ll be able to see all of my favorite New England places and travel tips, like this hidden gem in Marblehead called Crocker Park.
Have you ever gotten a full nights sleep and still woken up feeling exhausted? Is it something that happens regularly? Do you feel like you just can’t seem to catch up? I feel you.
I have always been the queen of burning myself to the ground... that whole “rest when you are dead” mentality... and then I got diagnosed with hashimotos and the reality of what I’d been doing all those years had caught up to me.
I know on this app it looks like I am constantly on the go... like I’m always pushing myself and finding new edges... and in a lot of ways I am, but I’ve actually slowed way down this year and become way more intentional with my energy.
I’m home in Colorado today for literally one day before I head back out on my next trip and you know what I did today? Mellow yoga, a facial, and acupuncture. I intentionally used today as a way to rest and restore before I leave again. I’ve also incorporated intentional rest every day in the form of at least 30 mins yoga nidra (which is a deeply restorative yoga practice). I don’t do a million things in one day anymore either. I might do yoga or hike or climb but not all three and if I do a big day I take 1-2 days after to rest.
It’s easy to take these bodies for granted when things are going well but as much as we like to think we are, we are not made like the energizer bunny. Rest is soooo essential. It took me getting an autoimmune condition to really acknowledge that. What about you? What are your favorite ways to rest and restore? (Photo by @evan_soroka)
I know it’s going to be a good day if I get to see Rainier peaking out of the clouds 🥰 Whether it’s driving down I-5, above the sound or at her base she represents home in a way no other mountain does 💕

I’ve seen a lot of waterfalls, but Mooney is still my favorite 🌙
Double-tap if you wish you were here right now! 😍
Thank you to @courtneylwilson for this gorgeous capture at Havasupai, AZ! 📸

Can you believe this spot is just outside of Austin? 💦 At first glance I’d assume it was somewhere tropical, like Hawaii! But no, Krause Springs is a privately-owned watering hole northwest of Austin in Spicewood, Texas. It’s $8 to enter (cash only), and they also have a swimming pool and a creek with a rope swing. Definitively one of my favorite spots to cool off in during this summer heat! Tag a friend you want to go to Krause Springs with! #RSJSinAustin

“I've always had a love of the outdoors. Being a fat, Muslim woman makes me an Unlikely Hiker. When I started wearing a headscarf and practicing hijab (hijab ≠ headscarf) I became apprehensive about hiking. The bias towards Muslim people in the news made me cautious. However, I couldn’t see myself *not* exploring the outdoors, hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc. So I decided that I have to do those things for my mental health and to not let fear stop me.” –– Kendra | she/her/hers | @afathijabi

What is your favorite spot in Budapest? Comment below. My one is Gellert Hill, there is something special about sunset view for the city and night lights of Parliament and bridges.
Где-то прочла, что Будапешт как Париж, но намного дешевле.
Согласна с каждым словом. Архитектура этих городов очень похожа и до сих пор сохраняется в первоначальном ее виде.
Именно поэтому жемчужина Дуная так популярна для съёмок исторические фильмов да и не только таких. Я уже с нетерпением жду новую картину Уилла Смита «Гемини», которую частично снимали в столице Венгрии.
Улицы Будапешта немного просторнее в центре и это несравненный плюс для съёмочных групп, а ещё шанс для местных жителей попасть в массовку.
Фасады домов в Будапеште реставрируются за счет бюджета каждого из районов (которых 23), а квартиры в старых домах огромные (100-140кв.м) с высокими потолками и балконами. Поэтому их часто разделяют на несколько и врезают отдельный вход в каждую.
В основном я любуюсь архитектурой в центральной части Пешта, хотя на стороне Буды тоже есть на что посмотреть, например в районах Szent Gellert ter, Moric Zsigmond korter и Battyany ter. Особенно волшебную атмосферу создаёт вечерня иллюминация, которая доступна после заката и до часа ночи.
Лучшая смотровая площадка для огней ночного города это гора Геллерт, откуда открывается вид на Парламент, цепной мост, Базилику и замок Буды.
Кто был в Будапеште? Какая ваша любимая локация или район в городе?
