I really like this picture but I can’t quite put my finger on why? Maybe it’s because it’s so busy with people, or the scale of everything, or just...primary colours? Anyway, we went to Asakusa Senso-ji on a roasting hot day back in August. It was packed, and sweaty, we were exhausted and hungry, so much was going on. Definitely a bit of a visceral experience haha. • • • • • #japan_vacations #explorejpn #explorejapan #visitjapan #ig_nippon #japan_daytime_view #tokyocameraclub #photo_travelers #yourjapan #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #natgeo #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes

Kyoto just feels so sweet and quaint everywhere you go. I’m so sad that the only two times I’ve been, it was a rainstorm and a heatwave 😂😭 Still loved it though. Fingers crossed one day I can go in normal weather haha. • • • • #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #natgeo #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes

U wot m8? • This is apparently what I look like mid-hike in 35-40C humid summer. I’ve been trying to get into hiking and remember that I like nature and high places, but it’s hard when Korea and Japan have 50000x more bugs than back home and they’re huge and terrifying. Also apparently there were monkeys and bears in this forest?! I’d take a British squirrel and fox any day. • Although, who would win in an East vs West fight, badger or monkey? • • • • • #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes

I’ve been on Instagram a REALLY long time. Way back when it was just a photo dump kinda space for selfies and food, and my friends all posted the same and that was it. Now I mostly follow accounts with celebrities and big followings and endorsements and opportunities and I find myself feeling like an underachiever. I get stressed when I have a lazy weekend at home because I feel like I don’t go out enough, I don’t adventure enough, I don’t fly first class often enough (😂), those kinda things. • Part of it is being one of those “Gifted and Talented” kids with straight As (and an Asian mum) that peaked in year 10, but the other part is defo just a need to step back and get some perspective. I’ve climbed mountains, learnt language, gymmed, made clothes, met people...It might not be cocktails on a private island but I guess I have done a lot this year. • Melancholy post brought to you by the onset of the darkest season. What have you done this year? • • • • • #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #natgeo #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes

Something I’ve come to understand the importance of is Balance. I worked hard on my interior project in Cervia, but I also made it a point to explore, take a walk, cycle, swim, listen to podcasts, to show up for myself and make time for me :) To be fair looking back, I could have cherished making and valuing the time for myself more, but only with perspective can we look back and be like “Ah, got it, I’ll do it better next time.” So what will you do for yourself today? Ive booked a yoga class with @triyogauk, and then I will go home and chip away on my little interior design project 😊

I have a dark secret about this photo that I’ll never reveal. 🤫 * What I will tell you, though, is that this is on the final stretch up the mountain to Minōo Falls, near Osaka. It’s probably packed now, since it’s famous for it’s amazing autumn foliage, but it was gorgeous and calm in the summer. 🍂 * Another thing you should definitely try is Minōo’s local specialty: Momiji Tempura, aka deep fried maple leaves 🍁 * They’re picked at peak redness, then pickled or preserved somehow, ready to be battered and fried all year round. I could eat a whole bag of them! They’re slightly sweet, slightly salty, and slightly grassy. Definitely worth a taste! • • • • • #japan_vacations #explorejpn #explorejapan #visitjapan #ig_nippon #japan_daytime_view #tokyocameraclub #photo_travelers #yourjapan #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #natgeo #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes

Shinkansen Snapshot 🚅 Fast speeds are a bit scary, and this is the fastest I’ve been on land (commercial jets are far faster) but 200mph is a lot less scary than I would have imagined thanks to the big white duck-snake. I’ll explain: in school, my friends and I thought the bullet trains looked like a mix between a duck and a snake. And a train, of course. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s the fastest you’ve ever travelled? • • • • • #thevisualcollective #flashesofdelight #pursuepretty #abmhappylife #chasinglight #moodygrams #lightandshadows #highcontrast #throughthewindow #shadowart #windowviews #fromthewindow #getlost #optoutside #exploretocreate #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores

A barely Mermaid Pose: (Ekapada Rajakapotasana) We store bottled up feelings of stress, trauma, fear and anxiety in the hips. This pose opens the hips and releases negative feelings and undesirable energy stored in your system. I think it was twice in a class where I thought I was fine, and by the end of a hip opener pose, I found myself with a runny nose and tears streaming down my face. The depth of yoga never ceases to amaze me. Behind the scenes: I toppled over the other side as soon as this was shot :)

This place is kind of the opposite of my earlier, peaceful post. This part of a temple as popular and busy as this one is always bustling with people paying their respects, praying, making donations, taking photos, and wandering around. There’s chatter everywhere, and sometimes music. It’s usually that traditional, raucous-sounding music that sounds so rowdy to my ears. Failing that, bells and jingles are also common. The scent of incense is potent and heady. It’s so lively and exciting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know that not all temples are like this, but I like the contrast between these two places I visited on my vacation. • • • • • #japan_vacations #explorejpn #explorejapan #visitjapan #ig_nippon #japan_daytime_view #tokyocameraclub #photo_travelers #yourjapan #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #natgeo #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes

Here is a real, actual sunset I saw with my actual eyes?! I’d just eaten an amazing bowl of abura soba, and waddled out just in time to see this. Isn’t this the sort of view you’d willingly stand in the middle of the road for? And then I went and bought some mosquito bite medicine because I’d been eaten alive 👌🏽Gotta love summer. • • • • • #skyphotography #sunset_hunter #sky_captures #pixel_ig #getlost #splendid_earth #agameoftones #discoverearth #exploretheglobe #places_wow #getlost #discoverearth #travelphoto #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #dametraveler #shexexplores #japan_vacations #explorejpn #explorejapan #visitjapan #ig_nippon #tokyocameraclub #photo_travelers #yourjapan

New job role for my CV: *Protector and carrier of baby trees* 🌱💚🌱 Never before have I used a potato bag with a strap that is balanced on my head to carry trees across fields and through streams. 2 days later, we'd each moved 100 trees and walked around 20km. It felt like they weighed around 8kgs at the end but maybe that was just due to the heat and sweat... That, combined with a giant pet #pig for company and an hour spent walking through a swarm of wasps made for several #interesting days! . . . #arbolitos #babytrees #farming #working #workaway #workawayadventure #newjob #newjobnewlife #nopainnogain #valelapena #sunshine #love #instratravel #travelgram #instagood #instadaily #lonelyplanet #nature #naturelover #nature_lusters #naturephotography #newfriends #shexexplores #exploring #backtowork #newexperiences #learningspanish #hikingbuddies

Joe and I hiked 10 miles in 5 hours today all over North-South Lake. We hit Artist's Rock, Sunset Rock, Newman's Ledge, North Point, Stobbel Point, and Mary's Glen. 💪💪✌A perfect fall day.🏞☉🍁🍂 . . . #northsouthlake #TheCatskills #catskillmountains #northmountain #upstatenewyork #newyork #hudsonvalleyhikes #hudsonriver #hikenewyork #sheXexplores #radgirls #womenwhoexplore #mountaingirls #mtngirls #mtnchick #catskillmountains #shewentwild #motherearth #outdoorwomen #hiking

Waiting for a train that’s 14 years late. Byeokje Station has a kind of sad story. I was so curious as to why this abandoned train line in the middle of nowhere had sections of track and bits of signage that didn’t look more than a few years old. So, I did some digging. • It was built in 1961 as part of the Korail Gyo-oe Line, which was initially intended to become a sightseeing loop line that ran around Seoul, going from Uijeongbu in the north east, to Neunggok in the west, down to Seoul Station and Yongsan via Sinchon, and around to Wangsimni in a total of just over 2 hours. Sounds fun, like a predecessor to the sightseeing trains in other parts of Korea. • However, the line fell into disrepair a lot faster than expected. Expansion into new areas was slowed because a lot of the areas they planned to run through were blocked by nature conservation programmes and military zones. What with that and the rapid development of expressways, nobody was using the train line anymore. If the expansion was blocked from the start, what is there to see on this sightseeing train? • By 1990, one solitary train passed through 3 times a day, and by 2000 they decided to call it a day. It’s been used on and off as a limited time sightseeing or nostalgia line (with varying success), and most recently as a freight line for the nearby army bases. Apparently, the line is still used from time to time for this final purpose, but they trains arrive at weird times of day and operate with minimal lighting, like ghost trains. 👻 • • • • • #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #keepexploring #letsgosomewhere #igtravel #mytravelgram #벽게역 #ourlonelyplanet #abandonedplaces #dametraveler #shexexplores #urbex #urbanexplorers #koreabyme #historylessonoftheday #trainstagram #curioustraveler #wheninkorea #ig_seoul #ig_korea #igerskorea #instakorea #koreagram

A beautiful sunset background for a beautiful gateway - one of the many gateways into the Old Town of Cartagena. Just after we walked through the park and saw sloths, as you do! All the perks from looking skyward whilst walking around towns. Just incase.

We were so excited when we saw white-faced monkeys! And then we realised they were EVERYWHERE. Just lounging around. At least they didn't try to steal my worldly possessions like the blighters in Asia. 🤦🏼‍♀️🐒🦍 On a side note, this used to be my general feeling at about 11am on Tuesdays 😂. The combination of morning training, break duty and needing a coffee... I'm sure no one noticed, right?! . . . #monkey #monkeysofinstagram #whitefacedmonkey #chilling #sunshine #relaxing #manuelantonio #nationalpark #nature #naturelover #nature_lusters #naturephotography #love #summerdays #shexexplores #exploring #travelling #neverstopexploring #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #bbctravel #teacherproblems #needacoffee

Another sloth! Bear in mind (Ha.Ha.) that last time I came to Costa Rica, all I wanted to see was a sloth and we didn't see any! Just a few questionable lumps in trees that were actually more likely to be dried leaves. Mi perezosos! Qué lindo!

Can you honestly ride on a boat through this scenery without the Jurassic Park theme tune appearing in your head? I think not! So beautiful, yet you just don't know what it's hiding. 💙🌴💙 Also, why is Instagram changing my photos?

Well hello there sloth, hanging in a tree. Just before you began to pose with your bottom in our faces. I like this picture because I feel it looks like a print or some type of fabric design.

Took myself on a solo hike this weekend and spent 3 1/2 hours tramping around on Bull Hill and the surrounding parks. I LOVE pushing myself to the limit and reaping the incredible benefits. I had never done a solo hike and it made me feel so good to be alone in the woods.

Things we did at Disney: Did a Moana Disneybound, caused a nuisance at the Swiss Family Robinson House, rode Splash Mountain 3 times in 2 hours, sang “consider the coconut” 500 times until it was so ingrained into our heads we couldn’t think straight. Just that one line. Imagine 😩 🌴 🥥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, pretty much everything I own is from @uniqlokr because it’s the only place I can get clothes that fit me reliably 😅 I’m so glad I found these shorts! Back home I’ve always been a 16-18 on the lower half so finding clothes here has been a challenge until literally this year?? It’s actually part of why I’m almost always in skirts and dresses 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #photosinbetween #livethelittlethings #getlost #optoutside #travelphoto #keepexploring #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #midsizecollective
