Step into your power, go see places, do what makes you happy, only do the things that feel aligned, but do all of them. Life is yours to be lived fully.

Even when we lived here I never went to Sugarloaf Rock, until today!
.
Seriously what a view. You need to visit if you’re in the south west of Australia.
.
It’s epic. Have you been?

I love to meditate, I’ll meditate anywhere really, but it’s pretty safe to say this is one of the best meditation spots I’ve ever found. 🧘‍♀️ .

I love mythology and stories of Goddesses. I believe as women we get to rise up in our divine feminine and so to visit Aphrodite’s Rock where the Goddess of Love rose out of the water was a dream come true.
.
I remember standing in the crystal clear water, soaking in gratitude. The water was cool and refreshing. Plus I swear I could feel her powerful energy surrounding me. .
L O V E I was literally bathing in it.

My favourite place so far was Kyoto. I loved everything about it, even taking photos in lifts 🤣
.
But seriously, I learned about respect and gratitude in Japan. The way people bow there moves me deeply, it’s such a rich culture that humbled me because there is so much connection in every bow. A simple thanks back home can easily get lost, but a bow lingers, you can feel it’s energy hold its own. I just love that. .

Here’s a fun fact about me, I usually only swim when it’s ridiculously hot. I’m one of those people who is usually always cold. I rarely go out without a jacket even on hot Summer days because if there’s a slight breeze I’ll probably start shivering. Unless it’s really hot I tend to just dip my toes in.
.
This photo was taken in Koh Samui and I swam a lot in both the pool and the ocean! It got my swim tick of approval, the weather was balmy and full of sunshine.
.
How could I not go swimming with a plunge pool like this in our villa? I felt like a serious Princess. Where’s the most luxurious swimworthy place you’ve been?
.
I’m seriously willing myself back to that warmth cos it’s freezing right now where I am.
.
Tag someone you’d like to plunge into this pool with. .

I remember sitting on this window seat aka Koa’s bed (how lucky is he?!) and meditating on how far we’d come. From Western Australia to Queensland to New South Wales and then in a blink we were discovering South East Asia. .
It felt surreal to think we’d been so many places, and each stop became our new home. Now here I was looking down on this vast city, while a flock of (camera shy) swallows ducked and dived right outside our window. I had this feeling in my heart, I am home now.
.
This is the travel life for me. Home is my habitat in that moment, it’s the gift that keeps on giving because it’s constantly changing. As a perpetual wanderer I get to see the world with fresh eyes every single day. The real secret though is that even when we’re not travelling we can still experience that newness and awe, all we have to do is really open our eyes and be present to what is.
.
Double tap if you agree. 🕊

I should probably talk about our latest vlog and post a photo about France but for some reason I am reminiscing about the elephant nature park in Chiang Mai.
.
Visiting there was a humbling experience, seeing elephants like Sook Jai who had been physically abused. She worked as a street beggar and on tourist elephant treks, now in her 70’s she is blind and nearly deaf. .
This is just one story, there are so many and it is heartbreaking. I love elephants but whilst other people lined up to pat them I found myself standing back. I couldn’t do it because I wanted to give them space to just be elephants. .
I love the Elephant Nature Park, it’s helping so many abused animals, and it needs tourism, so I encourage you to go and support their essential work, but when you go remember where the elephants came from, respect them, however that looks to you.
.
I wrote more about our time there in my blog which you can check out on our website (link in bio).

Viklari is my dad’s favourite restaurant in the entire world. As a fellow world traveler he has eaten at a lot of places and I have to say it is a pretty special place, best restaurant view I’ve ever seen and don’t get me started on the food. Simple, Cypriot indulgence. Have you been?
.
What’s your favourite restaurant on earth?

France is amazing. This photo was taken at the lookout in Biarritz - what a view.
.
I’ve also got a real soft spot for Hossegor, especially because it’s where the man behind the lens proposed to me just yesterday. .
My life is a dream come true and I feel so grateful I get to walk through it with my compass family 💚
