I swear it was just yesterday I was booking tickets to India, and just like that i am out of here! So excited @birdwinks is off my next adventure with me πŸ’• wish me luck guys! πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
You guys have to learn with locals if you are in Bali. Ulla creates amazing experiences with the most talented local people to teach you exciting and unique things! Check out more at @learnwithlocals
So many wonderful people coming and going from Bali lately. Sending love to Brit and Errin as they both fly home tomorrow - I can't wait to visit you both πŸ’•πŸ’•
Look at this cute little thing i made 😊 I'd make one for all of you but it was really difficult so... πŸ“Έ @ulla_nuna
Over the weekend I got the chance to attend a lace bra workshop where @by_sasti helped us make our own bralettes. I loved hanging out with all the girls making something awesome for myself. Thanks Sasti and @learnwithlocals and @samanthasmilesyesss for having me πŸ’• πŸ“Έ @ulla_nuna
Just over a week until I'll be off enjoying my 51st country! What?! I still can't believe where the past 2 years have taken me. Let me know in the comments what your favorite city in the world is and I'll let you know what my favorite one is tomorrow! πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
🌊🌊🌊 thanks for the photo and the surf lessons @davevanhoorn πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
First thing I said to Amina when she arrived in Bali was "Dont lick the toads, they're poisonous and we don't want to waterboard you" and the rest was history 🐸🐸 are you coming back to Bali yet?πŸ’•
As everything is coming together for my spontaneous trip to India, i am looking back on the past 2 years of blogging and how far I have come... honestly I owe it all to @theblondeabroad and @instituteofcode. I am so grateful to all the recent experiences I have had! Not only did the blogging retreat change the way I blog, but learning to code it helping me to finally build the blog of my dreams! I can't wait to see where it takes me! Another amazing photo by @eyes_of_a_nomad, i just wish I could take him to India with me!!
@birdwinks is casually singing to me while we sit at the visa office. I cant wait for our flight to India together but hopefully she learns some new songs before we go πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
GUESS WHAT!! I am spontaneously going to India in 2 weeks!! Its my ultimate dream come true and mom doesn't even have to worry cause I am going with another incredble traveler @birdwinks and we are going to have the time of our lives! πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
Take a moment to notice my shoes in this photo. These were the most comfortable shoes of my whole life and I lost one of them. Pretty depressing. Shout out to my old shoes... you were good to me. Until we meet again.... πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
What does your office look like? Come to Bali for a visit in the new villa πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’ƒπŸΌ πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
Have you ever just wanted a volcano to erupt so you could just get on with life and stop worrying about it? πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
I've made it my goal to post on blog everyday and I'd love it if you all wanted to head over and check it out. Let me know what you think in the comments πŸ’•πŸ’• the link is in my bio. πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
Patiently waiting for Mt Agung to erupt and secretly hoping all the tourists leave Bali so we can have the whole island to ourselves πŸŒ‹πŸŒ‹Also check out yet another amazing photo by @eyes_of_a_nomad .
Yesterday I shared a personal story of my struggle and I cannot tell you how grateful I am for all your kinds words. A new goal I have set moving forward is to post on my blog daily for the rest of September. I don't want to overwhelm you with self promotion but if you have a chance to hop on my blog and let me know what you think, I'd love it!! Thanks for never ending support πŸ’• πŸ“Έ @eyes_of_a_nomad
I recently found an amazing freelance job that was totally perfect for me. And the pay was going to be super helpful. Everyone warned me that it seemed a bit sketchy but I blew them all off, told them not to be cynical, etc. Turns out the person who hired me had planned all along to just use me. I did so much work for this stranger, turning down other jobs and saying no to things I really wanted to do, just to have them disappear. What was worst though was that all my friends were right. I was feeling like a complete failure while everyone around was getting jobs and reaching their goals. This may not seem like such a bad thing, but it's not a good feeling to put yourself out there, all the way around the world from your family just to get takem advantage of. Several melt downs later, I'm getting back to it. I'm so grateful for my support system here, it's really important to surround yourself with inspiring, like minded people. And for my family back home. I pride myself on never needing their help but my parents came to my rescue and I would have totally given up if it weren't for them. πŸ’•πŸ’• Props to anyone who took the time to read this whole thing. πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ Show me some love if you did, I could use a little extra love these days πŸ’• πŸ“Έ @eyesofanomad
Swinging into this week, super excited to be working with @instituteofcode again with another great group of students. I love being able to help people excell in their careers and break out of the 9-5 like I have. They have more blogging and coding retreats coming up and I want all of you to come join me!!
Stormy days always make me want to hangout in bed and watch movies all day. Instead I was off adventuring with my bff @eyes_of_a_nomad who took this awesome photo of course.
