Hey buddy, can't wait to swim with you in October. Who else has always dreamed of going to the Galapagos? Two days ago, I shared that the next BMTM Adventures trip is to Iceland, and today I want to share October's trip to Galapagos. It'll be a week of Yoga and diving followed by adventurous activities like hiking, surfing, and kayaking (and snorkeling of course) on one of the most idyllic islands in the Galapagos. Islands frozen in time with animals so curious and friendly, they come right up to you. Join me on this year's women's adventure trip there! Link in bio. As always, feel free to ask any questions here.

The best thing about catching sunrises is that you get incredible light and beautiful places all to yourself. I’ve been coming to Lake Diablo for many years to see this view. Was nice to sit & watch the clouds roll by as the sun lit up the mountains  . This is part of the reason I love photography so much—the endless pursuit of epic moments.

there’s no better dinner spot than at the top of a relentless uphill climb, I’m sure of it. This year I resolve to bring my own cutlery, reduce my single use plastics, and be a greener traveler. I partnered with @Humangear for refillable shampoo tubes, cutlery, and fun and funky colored bowls like this one.

Caught in the act  
I’ll often take advantage of any vantage point I possibly can to make a photo a little more interesting. Often that means just elevating or lowering myself by just a couple feet to change my perspective. You can pretty much guarantee that If you’re standing on the ground and taking a picture at eye level you run the risk of shooting from a perspective that we always see.

Since I’ve been talking about Italy this long, figured I’d do at least one more post from the country to help illustrate one of the things I DO love about Instagram. I got a few messages from people wondering why I dislike the app so much after yesterday’s post and if you read that much into what I wrote, I’m so sorry I didn’t communicate my meaning better. The fact is, I am so grateful to @instagram for the opportunities it has brought my way, the friendships I have made here and the more than 40 countries that I have been able to visit essentially just because of my following here. Like I said the other day, there is never a day I am ungrateful for these opportunities. It is cities such as Venice that have led me either directly, or indirectly, to what are some of the most important friendships I have.
.
Just as one example: While I never was able to meet @neumarc during a visit to Venice, it was because of work in the city that I found his account years ago and followed him, mesmerized by the images he shares. He had a larger following than I did then and I perceived that he was too good of a photographer to be interested in meeting lil ol me, so I never reached out. Then last year, we both ended up on a Viking Ocean Cruise and finally had the chance to meet. Marco is now a close friend and I won’t ever be visiting Venice again without seeing him there. I can’t imagine my world without his friendship. And he’s not the only one I feel that way about, that I’ve been able to meet essentially or actually because of IG.
.
You can choose to frame your view of IG in a positive way, you can make this place what you want it to be. And I choose to make it a place I come to for the people ️
.
What do you make it? Why are you here? I’d love to know!

As soon as I run my fingers over the weathered pages of my Antarctica journal, I’m immediately transported back to my room on the ship last year, my back against the wall curled up in bed with my watercolors and notebooks around me. When I was younger I used to draw and write down everything. While I still bullet journal a bit and take notes, and of course make all the lists, especially when I’m traveling, I haven’t filled a sketchbook in years, as electronics have slowly dominated my life. When I was in Antarctica earlier this year for almost a month, that’s right a month offline, I got back to my roots and began to write by hand again. Nothing preserves special memories quite the same way, right? I love looking back and rereading my feelings and thoughts from a precise moment in time, especially when I can see my handwriting go all wonky during big swells and storms. Is there any other pen to use in this situation other than the @parkerpen Sonnet Special Edition Atlas, delicately engraved with the world Atlas, when I’ve finally reached a place on the world map I’ve been dreaming about since I was a child?

Working on a book can be a glacial process ( no pun intended :) .. at times it’s near impossible to see the movement until the end. Over the last 6 years I’ve been shooting, compiling & editing down my images to create a portfolio that illustrates a clear picture of Iceland’s complex river systems. But the beauty of any long project is the light at the end of the tunnel. Over 8,000 words of text by @63mph has really brought this project to life. The book tentatively titled “At Glaciers End” is slowly coming along.

@amyippoliti This is like a painting - otherworldly! Wow, dude.

The thing about Iceland is, you just want to stop constantly and take photos because every turn and view is more incredible than the last, and there are so many waterfalls you just stop pointing them out because it's all you'd be doing. Ever since I last went, I've been dying to return and do a longer-term hike in Landmannalaugar, the rainbowy colored mountains. Reservations are super hard to get for the huts but I snagged some for the next BMTM Adventures women's trip! It'll be 14 adventurous women hiking and sleeping in warm huts each night, soaking in hot springs, and seeing the famous waterfalls like this one. Hit the link in my bio to take a look at the itinerary and to join this July.

@mylifesatravelmovie Favorite waterfall!!

Like I did for Rome, ending my stories about Florence by tagging everyone who made this trip so special in my photo. If you’re considering traveling to Firenze soon, or if you want to bookmark this for later, I hope you will also do your own research to see if these people & their small businesses can be a part of your travel to Italy.
.
As a self employed business woman, I have such a huge heart for supporting other small businesses and that’s why I was so grateful to visit Florence and Rome with Alison of @vivalifestylepr. She brought together the most wonderful group of locals in both cities and so many friendships were made or deepened as a result of this trip.
.
I want the same for you when you travel. Instagram has become such a double edged sword. It encourages a lifestyle of going to places merely to check off a list of shots you want to get that you’ve seen a hundred times before without learning anything about a local culture or contributing positively in any way to the future of a place. Though my engagement is suffering because I do not want to play that game — or any other, and I got my following a long time ago which also isn’t in my favor — I’m trying to continue to not play that game because I care about people. And people such as the ones I’ve tagged here will continue to be the heart and soul of what I do as long as I can help it. ️

@inbedwith.me 👌🏽👌🏽 Love finding a community that will stay in your heart for life.

@uncornered_market Do love how you always support the entrepreneurs and inspiring people you’ve met along your journey - not only with a shout out or tag, but with a personal story and depth. This not only matters to the person (& possibly boost his/her business), but it keeps the humanity and focus on people being its most important part back in travel. We’ve stepped back from Instagram for some of the reasons you mention above, but recently I’m thinking more of how to reclaim it again more as a storytelling platform again. Keep true to your creativity and voice. I do believe there will be a pendulum swing back to favoring that originality when everything else begins to look like a commodity. Let’s hope.

It only took a visit to @pfeifferwines in Rutherglen in the Victoria High Country to reignite my love for fortified wines from my old days in Europe, and fall back in love with these hearty, elegant and full bodied. I left with three bottles I couldn’t help myself! One of the original wine pioneers working this land for over 150 years, this family owned winery blew me away! I spent far too much time trying to spot platypus from their bridge (nope, that’s just another turtle) and drinking muscats and topaques, but what’s a girl to do? 🤗 @seehighcountry #rutherglen

What will you do to push yourself this year?
This video shows my first attempt at standing up and trying to stay calm and relaxed enough to take even a few steps.
I had never been out on a line anywhere near this length or looseness. 
Fall after fall, I didn't get very far, but In the end, it’s the struggles that make me stronger and the continued pursuit of growth that leads to success. This year my goal is to continue to face the big challenges (mental and physical) and stand up to take steps forward, even after I fall.

One of the most common questions I get via email is: how did I fund my first backpacking trip all those years ago? How could I afford to travel long-term before my blog made any money? 
—
Well, before I started traveling, while I was working a normal day job, I also had a “side-hustle” writing and selling a couple of ebooks online. It was this extra income that helped me fund that first year of travel adventures! 
—
This isn’t the only way to earn some extra money on the side though. Watching cats & dogs. Renting out your car. Dressing up like Jesus. Selling blood plasma. Freelance bookkeeping. Assembling furniture. Running local tours. There are MANY ways if you think outside the box!

@adventurer.at.law What a really amazing photo

Surprise, I’ve got two major announcements to make! Number 1 is that I’m trading the African bush for the vast wilderness of ANTARCTICA! I’m literally on a place right now starting my long journey to Ushuaia where I’ll board my Aurora Expeditions ship for two glorious weeks offline!  So if you don’t see me online, you know why! My second announcement is that my online photography course is currently on sale for New Years and I literally forgot to tell you all about it because I’ve been so busy since I got back from Africa. It’s $US49, like super super cheap! Take a look at the sales page through the link in my bio to learn more about it but if you want to learn photography from scratch, or improve your photography, it’s the highest rated course on Passion IO and something I am really, really proud of! Love you all and I’ll miss you a million, billion! Here’s my favourite shot from Botswana to prove my love. ️️️

That one time when I had a meeting with Mr. Milky Way

My passports first stamps were Oman, Yemen & Dubai about a decade ago. It was never a place I thought I would experience let alone as my first international trip. I jumped on board a film trip that I really had no right being on but since the 1st photographer fell through I was the next in line.. sorta. We spent weeks traveling to remote islands, traveling through 100’s of miles of desert & exploring remote cities for surf. We didn’t find much... but got enough. .
This was literally the first time my feet had left North American soil so to say the culture shock was palpable would be an understatement.. I made so many mistakes .. personally and culturally. This photograph in so many ways sums up my most cherished experience. Traveling hours & hours through the desert on what can only be described as a sand ‘highway’ we can upon a few nomadic people, literally a days drive from any type of town, some of them even identified as Bedouins. Small tents would flap in the desert wind & anytime we had a chance to stop & say hi we would. 
Children would flock to the car often asking for biscuits in exchange for a few smiles. More than anything they wanted to hold hands.. inspect our clothes and even mimic the act of me taking a photograph ( pictured above) . 
This was the first photograph I remember using to try and really illustrate what the experience was like to someone. Still using it today.

@alyssalynch HELLO🔥 hope to see you soon angel!!!

@bestvacations Always beautiful 💙

On Facebook I introduced this trip to Roma & Firenze with @xoalitalia as the maker and creator tour of Italy. It could have also been the tour where there was one great culinary experience after another to the point where when I began the journey home, I swore I’d gained 5 pounds while being gone. And if you like to eat as much as I do, and drink good wine when you do, then there’s no more qualified person to hire in Florence than @filippo.bartolotta When you visit his Instagram you’ll see he’s worked with some of the most famous people you know (or wish you knew) including the coolest first couple to ever serve in the USA’s most famous home. (Yes, THAT couple!) And yet Filippo doesn’t put on airs and he treated us the same way I imagine he treats all his clients no matter how famous or not — like family. Here he is with Michele Berlendis in the kitchen of one is his many ventures and what I’m pretty sure is his newest. Mama Florence is a cooking school not really like any other cooking school I’ve ever been to. In fact, yeah it’s unlike anything else I’ve ever seen in the category of cooking schools. The kitchen itself must be the most beautiful kitchen I’ve ever seen not in a private home. In terms of cooks under our roof in LA, I can’t hold a candle to Danté but I was still salivating over the appliances that Filippo had custom made for Mama Florence via artisans using materials and traditions which go back centuries. Whether you meet him in Italy, or catch him during one of his frequent trips to the USA, just catch him if you can. 🇮🇹
