Yep, it's a pretty famous hike and yep, I did have to wait my turn to take this photo but yep, it was worth the endless uphill and the crowds for this view. Sometimes I wonder, should we keep going to places with so many tourists? On one hand I want these options to remain open to me, on the other I want to be a more conscientious traveler. I recently put together an article about overtourism but unlike most of what I read, it's about how we can work to alleviate it and do our part to solve it on a micro level, one by one.

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.

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.

@mylifesatravelmovie Those are so cute!

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!!

Lava tubes, sand dunes, and exploded cinder cone volcanoes you can hike on - it’s not Namibia, it’s California! Did you know this was here? #visitcalifornia #roadtripcalifornia #exploresanberdo #sanbernardinocounty #mojavedesert @mojavedesertlandtrust @caoutdoorplay

@mylifesatravelmovie I need to go back there 😻 Now that I have a profesh camera 😂

“Dean’s California- Wild, sweaty, important, the land of lonely and exiled eccentric lovers come to for gather like birds, and the land where everybody’s somehow looked like broken down, handsome, decadent movie stars” this Jack Kerouac Quote from On the Road felt like the perfect descriptor for the Alabama Hills, the place in the wild west where they shoot tons of movies, particularly old western flicks. I can’t help but read his books and feel a bit of home state pride. Traveling around California always makes me fall in love with it more and more. I never knew it was possible. #visitcalifornia #lonepineca #inyocounty @exploreinyocounty #roadtripcalifornia

Looks like Mother Nature took a paintbrush and spent a lot of time in Death Valley ️

I know a lot of you have been worried about what you are hearing about the national parks. Having spent the last week and a half traveling around some of the biggest and most popular ones, I can report that most people respect the land and want to see it preserved. There are some people who act disrespectfully, and that’s hard to see, but I hope that for those who are visiting the parts of the parks that are still open, to please remember just to pack out all of your trash, stay on the trails, and to treat it like you would if you want to see it around in the next century. If you see something, say something. We can all work together to keep our parks safe and happy  @deathvalleynps #visitcalifornia #roadtripcalifornia #DeathValleyLove

I think when most people think of California, they picture San Francisco, Yosemite, and Hollywood. But to me, the deserts are just as beautiful if not more beautiful and iconic. Can you believe this landscape? It looks like I’m on Mars. Are you a desert person? If you’ve never been to one, did you know they could look like this? This was taken on a hike in Death Valley, which is the hottest desert in the world, unless you go in the winter - then it’s just about perfect. @deathvalleynps #visitcalifornia #roadtripcalifornia #DeathValleyLove

Walking out to the boot arch alone in the pitch black, no sounds and no light for miles I wondered, is this crazy? Then the wiser part of me said, no, this is peace. To me that’s what nights in the desert are for - that feeling of endless space stretching out from each side of you, and the freedom of being alone out there without sound, cell signal, or any modern distractions. It’s intoxicating #visitcalifornia #lonepineca #inyocounty @exploreinyocounty #roadtripcalifornia

California how are you so beautiful? I was born and raised here and still there’s so much I haven’t seen here. That changes now! As much as the beach and mountains are beautiful, there is nothing like a desert. The beauty, solitude, and landscape blows me away every time. Over the next few days I’ll be taking you through the beautiful deserts in California, starting with the Alabama Hills. This Rocky landscape is the gateway to Mount Whitney and is particularly striking in the winter time when snow caps the mountains. #visitcalifornia #lonepineca #inyocounty @exploreinyocounty #roadtripcalifornia
