I never realized how lucky I was to have grown up so close to nature. To have many trees in my own backyard and lining the streets of the neighbourhoods I grew up in. After travelling through cities for a while where all there was was stone travelling in Slovenia was a welcomed change.⠀ -----⠀ #feelslovenia #igslovenia #visitslovenia #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary #radgirlslife #femaletravel #awesome_globepix #traveltolive #travelon #travelabroad #travelmoments #travellerslife

I ventured over to this lake, Bohinj in Slovenia because I heard less tourists visited and it was very pretty. There certainly weren't lies. I saw maybe 10 people around the lake that day and felt perfectly at peace chatting with 2 friends as we walked around the lake, stopping to take pictures with gorgeous backdrops and taking it in that we were actually away from people for a day (which feels amazing when you're always in busy places!).⠀ -----⠀ #feelslovenia #igslovenia #visitslovenia #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary #radgirlslife #femaletravel #awesome_globepix #traveltolive #travelon #travelabroad #travelmoments #travellerslife

It wasn't until I was in Slovenia that I realized that I haven't had a proper fall in a couple of years! I so missed the fall foliage and I welcomed it with open arms, spending my time hiking around lakes that were some of the most beautiful I've ever seen.⠀ -----⠀ #feelslovenia #igslovenia #visitslovenia #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary #radgirlslife #femaletravel #awesome_globepix #traveltolive #travelon #travelabroad #travelmoments #travellerslife

I'm moving onto content from a new country today...Slovenia! And I have an announcement: I'm going to be posting less on Instagram.⠀ -----⠀ This is partly because I'm sick of putting in the time and effort required to post pictures daily with captions. Half the time I don't even know what to write anymore and I feel like I'm getting repetitive.⠀ -----⠀ Another reason is that my engagement is terrible, like what's the deal Instagram I have almost 11k followers but only get 250 likes her picture? Who are you showing my content to? ⠀ -----⠀ And lastly, I'm slightly addicted to Instagram. I find myself always checking for likes and comparing myself to other people. It's not healthy and it's something I want to move away from. I have a reminder on Instagram to let me know when I've spent 20 minutes on the app and am always shocked to see when I hit it by midday.⠀ -----⠀ I find myself going to places "just for the Instagram shot" or disappointed with a place because it's not as pretty as the shot I saw on Instagram. As hard as I try to avoid that thinking it manages to creep in and it's simply because I'm spending too much time on the app.⠀ -----⠀ So you will see less of me but I'll still be around posting 4 times a week and of course Instagram stories.⠀ -----⠀ #feelslovenia #visitslovenia #igslovenia #letstraveltoday #girlaroundtheworld #girlsvsglobe #explorerbabes #jetsettingchicks #girlsjustwannatravel #travelmode #discoveraround #wheretofindme #mytinyatlas #doyoutravel #roamtheplanet #traveltagged #traveldeeper #theglobewanderer #travelstoke #worldcaptures #travelenvy #passionpassport #discoverglobe #teamtravelers #stayandwander #exploremore #travelmore #travelinggram #travelexploring #passportready

For my last post about Bosnia and Herzegovina I have to be completely honest on my time spent in the country. The recent history of this country really shocked me as I had gone in knowing that there was a war here, 1991-1995, but had no idea that there was a genocide. Because of how recent it was (it really hit home because this happened during my lifetime) it is still very raw with many emotions for the locals and also travellers.⠀ ------⠀ A lot of the tourism focuses on the war and I believe this is good as people need to know about history but I will be honest that it's not easy. I found it hard to go through a museum about genocide (easily the most graphic I've ever seen), and to do something that focused on the war almost everyday. I can't even begin to imagine what the people who have gone through the war feel.⠀ -----⠀ While the country is far from perfect (did you know that they have 3 presidents?) it is still a place of beauty that is quickly changing. I seriously think that you need to get to this place before tourism takes over and to learn about this under the radar region.⠀ -----⠀ #bosnia #bosniatravel #visitbosnia #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary #radgirlslife #femaletravel #awesome_globepix #traveltolive #travelon #travelabroad #travelmoments #travellerslife

This had been named one of the coolest abandoned places in the world and I can understand why. This is in Sarajevo and is an old bobsled track from the 1984 Olympics. Today it's pretty beat up and covered in colourful but cool graffiti. There was even a "Fuck Trump" piece.⠀ -----⠀ #bosnia #bosniatravel #visitbosnia #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary #radgirlslife #femaletravel #awesome_globepix #traveltolive #travelon #travelabroad #travelmoments #travellerslife

I often move too fast and forget to enjoy the simple things. While I'm at home I always notice them because I'm not moving. Little things that drinking tea in my favourite chair and cracking the spine of a new book. An actual book that I don't just read on my Kindle!⠀ -----⠀ #bosnia #bosniatravel #visitbosnia #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary #radgirlslife #femaletravel #awesome_globepix #traveltolive #travelon #travelabroad #travelmoments #travellerslife

I've got some news! If you follow my Instagram stories then you'll know that I moved into a coliving/coworking space. And guys I can't tell you how much I NEEDED this. Travelling while working is not as easy task and honestly I get exhausted. Luckily I know myself well enough by now and know that 2 months is my cut off point for travelling. I get tired, I want to stop exploring and I crave my own space. Now I've got myself a little more in a less touristy part of Malta and I'll be here for 2 weeks working and relaxing. So if you see less from me on my stories that's why!⠀ -----⠀ #bosnia #visitbosnia #bosniatravel #letstraveltoday #girlaroundtheworld #girlsvsglobe #explorerbabes #jetsettingchicks #girlsjustwannatravel #travelmode #discoveraround #wheretofindme #mytinyatlas #doyoutravel #roamtheplanet #traveltagged #traveldeeper #theglobewanderer #travelstoke #worldcaptures #travelenvy #passionpassport #discoverglobe #teamtravelers #stayandwander #exploremore #travelmore #travelinggram #travelexploring #passportready

Honestly, travel spoils me. I get to a beautiful destination and I think "oh, it looks like x." It happens a lot, especially in Europe where it's castle after castle and church after church. I was talking to a girl I hung out with for a day about this and she described like this, "Europe has a whole lots of ABC's. Another bloody church and another bloody castle." 😂⠀ -----⠀ #visitmontenegro #montenegrophoto #montenegrotravel #letstraveltoday #girlaroundtheworld #girlsvsglobe #explorerbabes #jetsettingchicks #girlsjustwannatravel #travelmode #discoveraround #wheretofindme #mytinyatlas #doyoutravel #roamtheplanet #traveltagged #traveldeeper #theglobewanderer #travelstoke #worldcaptures #travelenvy #passionpassport #discoverglobe #teamtravelers #stayandwander #exploremore #travelmore #travelinggram #travelexploring #passportready

Is tourism always good? While Montenegro thrives off of tourism the city of Kotor and the surrounding area hold UNESCO status but are at the threat of losing it. Why? Concrete buildings are going up to house the increasing amount of tourists and multiple cruise ships are coming in daily, filling the town to the brim. ⠀ ⠀ When does tourism go too far and ruin a place forever? And is it ever possible to go back to old beauty of medieval towns like Kotor?⠀ -----⠀ #montenegrobeauty #visitmontenegro #gomontenegro #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary #radgirlslife #femaletravel #awesome_globepix #traveltolive #travelon #travelabroad #travelmoments #travellerslife

Honesty time: Lately I've been giving myself a hard time about doing things the "travellers way" meaning that I shouldn't be opting to do tours and instead going out and doing things on my own. Tours are seen as the touristy way, the easy way, and sometimes I feel like I'm cheating myself doing them. It's all this pressure I put on myself to be the best traveller I can be but the truth is that TOURS ARE OKAY TO DO! Sure they cost more money but they do make things easier and I do learn a lot more from them than I do on my own. See that mountain? It is a folk story behind it or this road? It's been rebuilt 3 times because of roads, stuff like that. I like to know the fun facts and I don't always share them with you guys because you still need to learn stuff when you come to these places too! Another reason why I've been doing more tours lately is because I haven't been connecting with as many people in hostels so it's another way to make friends (and I've met awesome people lately doing them including a girl who steers cruise boats and a girl who runs G Adventures tours! (dream job right?)). Another reason, I don't feel totally comfortable getting to many spots in the Balkans on my own because it requires me to rent a car and navigate by myself which some people are totally okay doing but I choose not to (I'm all about gazing longingly out the window). So while you guys may or may not agree to go on tours or if you ever push yourself to not them like I often think then I'm here to tell you that you can travel how ever the hell you want. Tourist or traveller? Who really gives a shit as long as you're enjoying yourself, not damaging nature or the places you visit and you're learning. Some things that have a price tag are really priceless and I can say that some tours were the best days of travel on this trip thus far. ----- #montenegrobeauty #visitmontenegro #gomontenegro #girlscreating #thetravelwomen #girlslovetravel #girlsborntotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #letstraveltoday #whereItravel #sidewalkerdaily #borntoroam #meettheworld #traveldiaries #lifewelltravelled #gltlove #shetravelz #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #youmustsee #girlstraveldiary

Moving onto content from a new country....Montenegro! This tiny nation is packed with jaw-dropping scenery, mainly because of the many mountains that fill it up creating dramatic landscapes over blue bays. ⠀ -----⠀ Brace yourself, almost all of my Montenegro pictures are of me dreamily looking off into the distance...but aren't all Instagram pictures like that? 🤣⠀ -----⠀ #visitmontenegro #montenegrophoto #montenegrotravel #letstraveltoday #girlaroundtheworld #girlsvsglobe #explorerbabes #jetsettingchicks #girlsjustwannatravel #travelmode #discoveraround #wheretofindme #mytinyatlas #doyoutravel #roamtheplanet #traveltagged #traveldeeper #theglobewanderer #travelstoke #worldcaptures #travelenvy #passionpassport #discoverglobe #teamtravelers #stayandwander #exploremore #travelmore #travelinggram #travelexploring #passportready

I'm not going to lie, this last week of ravel hasn't been the strongest for me. I've watched a lot of TV, haven't "explored" all that much and I've been pretty lazy. Often times I find it difficult to get myself out of the hostel when I'm on my own. But the other day I was totally content to get out of the hostel just to sit in a park. While normally I feel like I always need something to do, sometimes the simple things are the best.⠀ -----⠀ #croatiafulloflife #croatia_lovers #croatiatravel #shewanders #shewantsadventure #freewanderess #speechlessplaces #thewanderingtourist #girlgetters #myfavtourlina #earthgirllifestlye #shewhowanders #mybestintravel #intravelist #travelmode #traveltagged #girlsjustwannatravel #travellingourplanet #postcardplaces #sidewalkerdaily #girlsthatwander #girlsvsglobe #travelon #worldtravelbook #wonderfuldestinations #gltlove #traveldudes #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #girlsborntotravel

Sometimes I don't realize how amazing a place is until I leave. Hvar I judged too quickly and now know that I love it way more than I thought! Though it's the most expensive Croatian island and known as a party island it's worth going to and exploring further than just Hvar town.⠀ -----⠀ #croatiafulloflife #croatia_instagram #croatiatrip #visitcroatia #femaledigitalnomads #lovetravelgirls #mydestinationguide #travelmemory #babeswhowander #travelinglady #kissfromtheworld #travelwithaninsider #shetravelz #wanderlost #travelinladies #letstraveltoday #explorerbabes #girlsabroad #jetsettingchicks #femaletravelbloggers #justbackfrom #travelforever #girlaroundtheworld #girlsthatwander #shetravels #nomadstories #exploreeverywhere #neverstoptravelling #thetravelwomen #globelletravels

Who here likes to get lost and who likes to know exactly where they're going? Personally I hate getting lost and I like to have a point to go towards other than just walking around.

I've met a ton of awesome people on this Europe trip so far but I seem to be going the opposite direction as most people and unfortunately have to leave most of my friends after only a day or 2! But this is the travel life so sometimes I add people on Facebook or Instagram and the funny thing is that these people that I connected with for so little time are often the most supportive of my travel journeys actually like my posts and comment. So here's a thanks to everyone I've met travelling who helps to encourage me even more and follows along, you all have made a difference to me and in my business ❤️⠀ -----⠀ #croatiafulloflife #croatia_instagram #croatiatrip #visitcroatia #femaledigitalnomads #lovetravelgirls #mydestinationguide #travelmemory #babeswhowander #travelinglady #kissfromtheworld #travelwithaninsider #shetravelz #wanderlost #travelinladies #letstraveltoday #explorerbabes #girlsabroad #jetsettingchicks #femaletravelbloggers #justbackfrom #travelforever #girlaroundtheworld #girlsthatwander #shetravels #nomadstories #exploreeverywhere #neverstoptravelling #thetravelwomen #globelletravels

The best time to get the ultimate Instagram shots? Always in the morning with most travellers are sleeping in. I love wandering the streets in the early morning before it gets too hot and I can walk without crowds. Croatia is one place where you must get up early. Especially in destinations where cruise ships roll in as the mass of tourists coming off of them literally takes over the old towns.⠀ -----⠀ #croatiafulloflife #croatia_instagram #croatiatrip #visitcroatia #femaledigitalnomads #lovetravelgirls #mydestinationguide #travelmemory #babeswhowander #travelinglady #kissfromtheworld #travelwithaninsider #shetravelz #wanderlost #travelinladies #letstraveltoday #explorerbabes #girlsabroad #jetsettingchicks #femaletravelbloggers #justbackfrom #travelforever #girlaroundtheworld #girlsthatwander #shetravels #nomadstories #exploreeverywhere #neverstoptravelling #thetravelwomen #globelletravels

Just looking out over King's Landing.⠀ -----⠀ Not to disappoint but the real life King's Landing is actually much smaller than it appears in GOT. It was also quite funny to see shots where different buildings appear in multiple places throughout the show. Dubrovnik had the looks for the show but it wasn't quite up to the grand scale needed so plenty of CGI was used.⠀ -----⠀ #croatiafulloflife #croatia_lovers #croatiatravel #shewanders #shewantsadventure #freewanderess #speechlessplaces #thewanderingtourist #girlgetters #myfavtourlina #earthgirllifestlye #shewhowanders #mybestintravel #intravelist #travelmode #traveltagged #girlsjustwannatravel #travellingourplanet #postcardplaces #sidewalkerdaily #girlsthatwander #girlsvsglobe #travelon #worldtravelbook #wonderfuldestinations #gltlove #traveldudes #womenwhoexplore #timeoutsociety #girlsborntotravel

I'm not going to lie, I'm having a rough travel day today and just stayed in bed watching Netflix. I'm dealing with bed bugs and attempting to get clean clothes (seriously I've had them washed in 2 hostels and they've come back still dirty and damp both times?!). There are days when I would rather be home and today is one of them.⠀ ⠀ People I'm sure will judge and say that I'm living the life, so how could I be upset? Yes, I am living the life I want to live but that doesn't mean that everyday is perfect, that I don't deal with stupid things sometimes, that everything comes easy and that I have endless money. Travelling daily is a struggle, some more than others but the good usually outweighs the bad.⠀ ⠀ Wanting to go home on a trip or just to be home momentarily doesn't make you less of a traveller, it makes you human. There is nothing wrong with acknowledging the bad, missing what you love (for me that's my bed, shower and being close to my family) and choosing to just forget about where you are for the day and live like how you would at home (chill day on the couch for me!).⠀ ⠀ I put a lot of pressure of myself to be a model traveller and to me that was always travelling and doing new things but I've realized that that is unrealistic for me and that always being on the road is too much for me. So though I may travel for 3 months at a time, sometimes shorter or longer, I've learned that Netflixing, eat a chocolate bar, having a good rant to a friend or 2 and laying in bed is sometimes the best way for me to deal with things ✌🏻🍫⠀ -----⠀ #croatiafulloflife #croatia_instagram #croatiatrip #visitcroatia #femaledigitalnomads #lovetravelgirls #mydestinationguide #travelmemory #babeswhowander #travelinglady #kissfromtheworld #travelwithaninsider #shetravelz #wanderlost #travelinladies #letstraveltoday #explorerbabes #girlsabroad #jetsettingchicks #femaletravelbloggers #justbackfrom #travelforever #girlaroundtheworld #girlsthatwander #shetravels #nomadstories #exploreeverywhere #neverstoptravelling #thetravelwomen #globelletravels
