Dreaming of Patagonia today. Hiking season is in full swing. Btw, I’ve got a little something special for you guys in my Instagram story today! Check it out 😊, and happy travels (especially if you’re headed here! Well no actually everywhere. Everywhere is special 😂) 📷: @backpackersteve
Christmas is underway here in Berlin. Is it festive where you are yet? This light tunnel at the Botanischer Gardens was so magical I spent quite some time running around in it, trying to get the angle just right so that it looked like a halo around my head in this selfie. Did it work? I was asked to test out the #vivov7 and after playing with the 24 megapixel front cam, I pronounce it legit. I want to see your selfies too! @gettingstamped @thisbatteredsuitcase @blackdotswhitespots Tag them with #allyoucan#sp
“I’m flying, Jack!” Wait, where is jack? Apparently not in Saxon Switzerland, which means he is missing out! This under the radar National Park in Germany (not Switzerland!) is soo dang gorgeous. Get the full hiking guide at the link in my bio. Where to stay, what to do, how to get there, and all that good stuff 🤓👍🏻
How am I doing? Every so often, I like to ask you guys how you feel about my blog and Instagram. Does it help you? Does it inspire you? How can I make it better? How can I help you more? I put together a survey to get a better sense of you and how I can serve you better. It’s linked in the bio and takes about five minutes to complete. Because I know your time is precious and because I know it would be helpful at this time of year in particular, I’m giving two lucky people who fill out the survey $100 Amazon gift cards. Click the link in the bio to give me your thoughts!
This is such a delightfully trippy 'fun park' in the middle of nowhere. The girl behind the counter said we could have 90 minutes for free, but as I'm sure she expected, there was no way we could leave until we'd spent all afternoon well into the evening weaving through the labyrinth, up through the castles and deep into the dark underground tunnels. This place feels like 24/7 Halloween. Saxony is full of surprises.

Resting Instagram story face 😂 decided to sneak over to the Christmas garden before the crowds to get these lights to myself! It was the perfect opportunity to test out the Vivo V7, which comes out next week and is supposed to be particularly good for selfies. It has a 24 megapixel front camera, which is actually more than the camera that took this photo! I decided if I was going to test it properly, I would bring it into the worst possible situation for a phone - low light. It did amazing and for those of you who live in Asia (where it's mainly going to be available) or are traveling through, this phone is a great and affordable option if you love taking photos! Check out my Insta stories today and the following hashtags to see how it does! #allyoucan#vivov7#sponsored
From one lover of all things weird and amazing to another – this Devil's Bridge in the middle of nowhere in Germany is worth the trip! Check out the link in my bio for directions on how to get here and what the story is behind this jagged, perfect circle bridge. ••• Also wanted to make sure everyone knows I did not actually walk on this bridge! It is forbidden in order to keep it intact. The images that you have seen of people on this bridge are most likely photoshopped, as is this one. And please don't worry that I Photoshop my images! This is the first one I've done. Just really wanted that epic shot on the bridge and this is the only ethical way to do it 😊🙏🏻💙#visitgermany
This is Saxon Switzerland, which is surprisingly not in Switzerland! It's just a few hours drive away from Berlin, and even more amazing in person than it looks in photos. I journeyed here with @alamorentacar who I'm so excited to announce I'm partnering with to do three amazing trips this year! I'm thinking next on the docket should be Australia or France. What would you most like to see? Where would you go? #alamodrivehappy#sponsored
Was rewarded with this magnificent arch after solo rappelling down a canyon wall, the treat for making it down alive. I thought it wise to film myself on the drone all the way down, freaking out while I accidentally pushed buttons, trying not to fall. Made a YouTube video of the whole experience, including locating the sneaker route to do this hike, which usually takes at least an overnight, in one day. Link in the bio!
Is it winter yet? 😂 I actually can't wait for it to get all snowy and beautiful here in Berlin! This is from Alberta last December. It was a frigid sunrise with @infarawayland in -30 Celsius but as any winter lover knows, there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad outfit choices! Unrelated but I did a little tour of my Berlin apartment. It turns out that I have some pretty quirky decorating choices, and it made me realize how many nipples I have in my apartment. Link in bio!
No complaints about the gorgeous fall we’ve been having in Germany, but as the weather turns colder I’m remembering these days in Aruba fondly! Over the past few months myself and a few other faces you might be familiar with headed to various warm and beautiful places to create #barcelostories. Here’s one of the three that I made at @barceloaruba. You can see the rest of them at the link in my bio! #sp (📽: @whatspaigewearing)
Sometimes, you've got bring your own brightness in the storm. The recent news coming out of Hollywood triggered some old wounds for me, and though I have thought about sharing this many times before, I got scared, and put it away, but this time I decided to hit publish. Solo traveling healed me from similar trauma, and by talking about it, we take back our power. Traveling alone showed me that I am powerful, capable, and that men are not by and large the enemy. It can be a powerful tool for healing. Especially right now, I want to emphasize that the world is not a scary place and that solo traveling is not a dangerous or irresponsible choice, especially just because someone is a woman. It's the very thing that gave me life again. Click the link in the bio for the full story! (📷: @thisbatteredsuitcase)
It's been so helpful and healing to spend more time in one place, in Germany, my adopted home. It got me wondering how I can be more helpful. What are some of the things that you want to see from me? How can I be more helpful to you? ❤️🎈(📷: @blackdotswhitespots) #gopro#goprogirl
