One of my favorite things about traveling is getting to know other cultures and people from different backgrounds and having conversations about it. Everyone is different and unique for many reasons and by keeping an open heart and simply acknowledge the differences make every trip and new friendships so meaningful and fulfilling.💭
As I’ve evidently become accustomed to saying, shit’s gettin real....It was just over a year ago that I was doing one of the items at the tip-top of my U.S. life list, backpacking California’s Lost Coast. It was freakin’ beautiful; I was a freakin’ mess. I was doing the one thing I told people not to do, traveling in search of answers. But it was like the more I searched, the harder I worked, and the more I did, the less progress I made. And that was the problem.
A good friend of mine recently asked me how I practice patience. What I’ve learned this last year, however, is that feelings of impatience, restlessness, and stress are so unfair to the present moment. Because in not so many words, I’m saying that the present moment and my present self isn’t enough. When in fact it’s more than enough. I think this means that I’m growing and becoming more content with the present, and accepting it, even the unexpected things, as though I’m exactly where I want to be.
Talk about some real hippy AF shit. But I’m ok with that, just like I’m ok with life being a beautiful mess. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. And on days that it’s more messy than beautiful, then that’s ok. And it’s ok to say that out loud.
What a difference a year makes...in how the journey of one’s self can be more impactful than any amazing physical journey. ✌🏻 #mindful#trekking

"Puerto Rico has always been a beautiful halfway point between my Spanish heritage and my American identity. It is a place where I feel happy, a place where community is so deep and people are so welcoming. After I spent time there over the last year, my love for the island became even stronger—I have seen some of the most selfless, generous people of my life. Puerto Rico is America at its best, humanity at its best." - Chef José Andrés
We ran into these feisty ponies along the 54 in the Snaefellsnesvegur. The sky was such a beautiful backdrop to the beauty of the ponies/horses. They weren’t ivory, which made them all the more beautiful! Do you have your own stories with them? The one on the left almost bit me when I tried to let it! 😂

She is at a place in her life where peace is a priority and negativity cannot exist ✨
I found peace in this terrace in Siena Italy. I always say it’s not vacation without a balcony. It’s my only requirement. There’s something special about opening the door to the fresh air every morning. Even the birds felt how peaceful it was 🤣 @victoriagmayo@smmcloug What brings you peace while traveling?! .
“To ignore the thinking of the oldest tribes on Earth would be like erasing the path already traveled by human beings and forcing it to travel again.” — African proverb
The Maasai are an extraordinary people famous for their culture and traditional ways of life. They have resisted adopting a modern lifestyle for hundreds of years, but government pressures have made it increasingly difficult for current and future generations to preserve their customs and traditions.
It is estimated that there are about a million Maasai in East Africa, but it is difficult to report more accurate numbers because the Maasai people distrust the government and have been known to miscount their numbers, fearing that their children will be taken and forced to get a modern education. A pastoral, semi-nomadic people, accustomed to living off the land, the Maasai saw no reason for their children to attend school.
The traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle. Believed to be a gift from God to the Maasai people, rustling cattle was seen only as taking back what was rightfully theirs—a less common practice these days. With a traditional diet consisting only of milk, meat and on occasion blood from their cattle, it’s not surprising that status among the Maasai has been measured by the health and wealth of their livestock.
But due to conservation laws and issues relating to land rights, their grazing land continues to shrink and it is a lifestyle that is more and more difficult for the Maasai to sustain. Many argue that the huge profitability of tourism in these countries are truly behind the displacement of the Maasai people. When I think of how Indigenous tribes like the Maasai have co-existed with nature for centuries, I am left wondering if conservation and the Maasai lifestyle are truly at odds with one another... .
