I haven't posted in two weeks. I think all the running I did on Lake Michigan must have exhausted me. (Or I sort of forgot my blog exists and remembered my personal instagram exists... @michelleym1123 Both are perfectly plausible explanations.) Like any normal vacationer, during my Chicago trip, I said, "It's nearly 80 with 60-some-odd percent humidity? Time to run eight miles!" The Lakefront Trail humored me with its intermittent water fountains and its extremely attractive fellow runners who made me feel like a potato that needed to run more. If you don't plan your vacations around running, you're totally missing out on being uncomfortable to begin your day, but this is also a great place for a walk or a bike ride.
Have you visited Lake Michigan?

Working through our backlog of walks now guys, first up Glenridding Dodd and Sheffeld Pike, this fantastic walk is full of amazing views and is up there with some of the best scenery in the lakes! keep your eyes open for more walks soon. Check it out here http://ow.ly/ttll50vH1p5
I am so inspired by these 2
women @thechampagnediet and @theslaycoach. I intend to follow in their footsteps- speak my truth, smash my fears, be authentic, share my struggles along with my wins, do my souls work, and ultimately create a space for other women to feel so damn empowered and accepted that their demons will inevitably burn to the ground and that light will guide them home 💜

Two posts in one day because I’m bored at the airport... Heading to Bali soon and somehow still have pictures to share from my last trip🙃 This has always been one of my favourite views at Argyle Shore when the tide is out💙
Running through the Atherton Tablelands like... Heading out into small, lesser known areas is always one of my favorite things to do. Everyone is so excited that you’re there and wants to tell you all about their little corner of the world.
This is Australia’s main coffee region, you can find amazing local cheese and fruit, plus the scenery is something else. Perfect example of why we need to get off the beaten path more often 😉

After an intense week of music making, work and quality family time, I'm hitting the road tomorrow morning for some nature time a few hours north of Berlin. I can't wait to immerse myself in my happy place - a forest by a lake 🏞
My swimsuit is packed, banana bread is baked, guitar is waiting by the door and my heart is full of excitement. With the images and data of the forest fires in Brazil coming in more and more, I'm ready to appreciate this beautiful patch of planet with even more gratitude than usual! 🌎
What are your weekend plans? I hope you get to spend your days in your happy place too 💗
amsterdam memories 💐 I‘ve already been here so many times, but it‘s still the same amazing feeling 💗 this city always fills my heart with so much joy, I just feel so comfortable here! have you ever had a similar feeling with any place?
Happy 4️⃣th anniversary to my baby: WorldTravelBug.com!!🍾🥂🎉
23 Aug is indeed a historical day! 🙌😉
Interesting fact: this used to be Romania's National Day prior to the Revolution in ‘89!
Yes, I am Romanian, for those who don't know yet. 🇹🇩❤️
And a few more things about me, now that we are at it...and because there are so many new people here:
- I moved back to Romania about 5 years ago, after living in Belgium for 11 years
- After a long term career in finance I took a "sabbatical" ...which has still not ended, 5 years later 😂...but changed my life completely
- I consider India my 3rd home. I went there 11 times and also lived there for a little while
- my biggest passions are photography and travel (I bet you didn't see that one coming 😂)
- I still struggle with "perfectionism" but working really hard at it - I am quite sarcastic which is considered fun by some people and maybe less fun by others 🙈. English humour is my favorite!
- I am very shy, which I cover really well with the sarcasm above 😉
- I am a Capricorn (if that's of any interest to you 😂 )
PS: It was a struggle with myself to upload this picture because you know...people, light, body posture, signs etc. (="perfectionism")...but here you go. This is me working at it 🙈
And if you managed to read that far, thank you!
And thank you for your support!❤️

Istanbul’s rooftop game is unstoppable. 🙌🏼 Here we had views of the Galata tower in one direction, the piercing minarets of the Blue Mosque and church spires of the Hagia Sofia in another direction, and the sea in yet another. 🕌
We’d drink glasses of wine with nightly calls to prayer echoing all around, sitting in European Turkey while watching Asian Turkish slowly light up into a glittering distant skyline. 🍷
Just another one of those perfect little “pinch me” moments that I’ll pocket forever.
