Another photograph from my unforgettable trip to El Valle on the Colombian Pacific Coast. I just can't get over the beauty of this place. #annysadventures#magicineveryday Where is the most beautiful place you have visited?
I spent last weekend in the Colombian Pacific Coast in a small town called El Valle. This town was once unvisitable due to narco trafficking but now it is a beautiful natural tourist destination. I was completely cut off from the world no phone signal or internet. It was an amazing unforgettable opportunity that I will never forget. I trekked through the rainforest, visited a national park, learnt about the areas preservation, ate typical cuisine, met local people, slid down a waterfall, sat on a natural seat underneath a waterfall, saw 4 whales, learnt about turtle egg preservation, walked through a mangrove filled environment and drank coconut water from a fallen coconut on a completely deserted beach! Truly unforgettable #traveltuesday#annysadventures#magicineveryday What is the greatest off the beaten path destination you have visited?
One of my favourite things about Colombia is it's unique and wonderful places. Last week I visited the Sumapaz National Park 2 hours outside of Bogota. This park contains a paramo ecosystem. Colombia is one of the few places with this ecosystem. It is unique and very important because it helps bring water from the sky to the earth, through plants which have adapted to take in as much water as possible. It was a wonderful place to visit. What is the most unique Ecosystem you have ever visited? #annysadventures#traveltuesday#magicineveryday
"There's a sunrise and sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.” #annysadventures#magicineveryday Where was the most beautiful sunset you have ever seen?
When I see a sunset or a waterfall, for a split second it's so great, because for a little bit I'm out of my brain, and it's got nothing to do with me. I'm not trying to figure it out. I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness" - Chris Evans #annysadventures#magicineveryday Which makes your mind stop - waterfalls or sunsets?
I loved exploring the streets of Zadar. Such beautiful architecture around every corner. "Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you" #annysadventures#magicineveryday

Had a crazy last week! Spent 5 days in the beautiful Croatia then spent the weekend in Paris! It was a busy one but totally worth it! "Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home" #magicineveryday#annysadventures

Travelling around Norfolk never gets old! When many people think of England they instantly think of London, but in truth England is so much more than London. Around every corner you can find little spots of history and beautiful places. Norfolk truly is a wonderful place to visit and live #magicineveryday#annysadventures What's your favourite place in England?
To most people this is just a random lake in the middle of a rural part of England. But this is where I spent the majority of my childhood. This is where I learnt new skills, I learnt to ski, I laughed, I made friends for life, I grew and I discovered how to turn my passion into a career. This is where everything started and this is where I found who I was going to be #magicineveryday#annysadventures
Sometimes you take places for granted. I spent 21 years living 5 miles from the ocean and looking back I didn't visit enough as I should have. One mans home is another mans paradise. #magicineveryday#annysadventures What is your hometown like?
One thing I love about Colombia is that each and everyday something inspires me, surprises me or takes my breath away. From the beautiful landscapes, unique sights, sometimes even just walking down the street. I was lucky enough to see the Nevado del Ruiz from my aeroplane window on Monday and what a sight it was. A snow covered volcano peaking out from between the clouds. #magicineveryday#annysadventures What's the coolest thing you have seen from an aeroplane window?
[TRAVEL TIME] So for the first time in a year and 3 months I'm going on holiday back to England! Excited to see what's changed or hasn't as the case maybe. Bogota I will be back in 3 weeks #magicineveryday#annysadventures -> But first stop Mexico City @aeromexico

Sometimes we get stuck behind the cloud and they don't allow us to see what's right in front of us. But once we learn to break away from the clouds we begin to see things clearer for how they really are. Sometimes we need to take a step back and see #magicineveryday#annysadventures

On Wednesday I had my last day at my full time job! I have decided to take the plunge and become a digital nomad! Let the new adventure begin #magicineveryday#annysadventures
Bogota is a city which continues to amaze me with it's enormity I never dreamed I would end up visiting this amazing country, let alone live in it. "If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it.” #magicineveryday#annysadventures
Bogota is surrounded my countryside towns, each unique and wonderful. Small countryside towns are where you can really get a sense of Colombian culture and traditions. Being raised in the English countryside I feel most at home surrounded by countryside landscapes #magicineveryday#annysadventures What do you prefer the city or countryside?
