Looking forward to being in the Bahamas again tomorrow 😎
Although I won't be doing much of this 🔝🌴 Grateful for the beautiful places my job takes me 🙏
Where's your paradise? Mine is right here
What's the most surprisingly beautiful place you've ever visited!? For me it was the Louvre in Abu Dhabi.
Clean, modern minimalist architecture in white keeping the focus rightly where it belonged, on the world of treasures carefully curated and displayed. It was a learning experience from a journey into the past down to the present. When we exited on a high, and when I thought it couldn't get better. We came upon this spot and it took my breath away, a vast expanse of the dome ceiling covered a stunning space where the museum met the sea.
I was so happy and so cold as the wind whipped at me. Wish I could have stayed in that spot for longer 💛
Do you have a similar experience to share!?

New article on the blog, sharing a visual diary of our recent visit to Burkina Faso, my country 🖤 Burkina Faso stands for “The land of the upright men ” and I’m not biased when I tell you it is a fact 🤗 I’m also sharing a checklist to help you prepare for your travel to Burkina Faso or Sénégal if they’re on your list ✔️ ( link in bio )

Missing this view. You never quite know what the universe is going to throw your way. It’s all about adapting to the new circumstance and going with the flow. There’s only so much in life we can control, so it’s not worth stressing over things we can’t control. I didn’t always feel this way though- when the universe changed its plans for me, I used to panic and get severe anxiety. I got tired of all the stress and uncertainty (as we know life doesn’t typically go as planned) so I started to try and shift my views. It took time, it’s not perfect, and I still have my moments, but by following the three things below I’m on overage way less anxious than I once was.
1. Trust in the process. The universe really does only give you what you can handle. When the time is right, the answer and opportunity will present itself.
2. Listen to your gut. Always. If it’s telling you something doesn’t feel right, listen to it.
3. No mistake is too big to come back from. This obviously has its limitations (the big no no’s in life like murder for example don’t fall within this statement) but the smaller mistakes we make can all be seen as learning moments. Don’t focus on what went wrong, focus on what will go right the next time.
Wishing I was at the beach again! Good thing I planned a trip to the Dominican Republic for a yoga retreat! I am leaving the day before Valentines Day and flying into Santo Domingo. I hear the city is also beautiful! I can’t wait to see what my yoga teacher @yoginitaveras has in store for us at the beach! #vitamindplease

The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu )is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang and a reference to the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10- to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was covered by limestone casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure. Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base. There have been varying scientific and alternative theories about the Great Pyramid's construction techniques. Most accepted construction hypotheses are based on the idea that it was built by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place. Based on these estimates, building the pyramid in 20 years would involve installing approximately 800 tonnes of stone every day. Additionally, since it consists of an estimated 2.3 million blocks, completing the building in 20 years would involve moving an average of more than 12 of the blocks into place each hour, day and night. The first precision measurements of the pyramid were made by Egyptologist Sir Flinders Petrie in 1880–82 and published as The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh. Almost all reports are based on his measurements. Many of the casing-stones and inner chamber blocks of the Great Pyramid fit together with extremely high precision.

I’ve been trying to kick some weird cold/flu for the past week and it gets especially bad at night. I’ve been waking up with splitting headaches, exhaustion, and achy all over- wondering how I’m supposed to function.
I’ve always seen marriage as a partnership. It’s 1+1= 5 times stronger together. When one of us needs to step back, the other steps up. Over the last week, Dave has done countless loads of dishes, has taken our puppy out in freezing temps dozens of times, made me cup after cup of tea, supplied me daily with espresso, breakfast and encouragement to push through and head to work, and more, and done it all with joy and so much love.
True love is the kind that doesn’t keep score. The kind that ditches fine print and conditions for self-sacrifice. Lasting love continues to pour out over and over again, focusing only on giving of itself, 100%, every time.
I want to be the kind of person that is defined by how they love, and I’m so thankful to have people in my life who inspire me to continue cultivating that inside myself💞
I will never have enough of endless views and crazy beautiful sceneries - and how could I? 😍 This planet is full of them and there are still so many more places to see 🗺
What has been one of your favorite views ever? 😍
There’s so much snow outside my window right now that all I’m doing is dreaming of my upcoming spring travels: a few Arizona trips, two Italy trips, and some to California as well. I’ll take all the sun and warmth I can get! #tekwanitravels@hotelposeidonpositano
