Dreaming about sunny Bijaipur after a dreary (and wet) morning getting to Pushkar. Only a few more days left of my holiday and I’m ready to go home I think! .

Our traditional Harari homestay in Harar, Ethiopia. This part of Ethiopia feels so different, we can already see the influence of nearby Somalia where we are heading next. Harar is a busy little place, after hours of wandering the medina like old town, we came back to rest in the peaceful home with a cup of coffee. #visiteverycountry#homestay#visitethiopia
COMMENT below what you would miss the most if you had to live on a floating house all your life.
Can’t wait to see these comments!
How crazy to think these people live on a floating home and fish basically all day everyday.
I don’t think I could do it, I’d miss a lot of things living on land but I think playing sports I’d miss the most. Yes I could swim and be active in different ways but I love my land sports.
None of us are too old for bubbles. Least of all me. I just can't help but gravitate towards these little balls of rainbow.
They bring joy to faces young and old. If I spy street bubbles I love to pop down a few coins, watch the joy erupting around the bubble performer and linger a little while, with or without my camera.
Last week in Barcelona after I had placed my coins and started snapping away I was invited to have a go. At first I was content to just sit and quietly photograph as people laughed and jumped and took selfies. But after some urging from @supr_stu I swapped camera for bubble sticks and lived in the moment. If you think chasing bubbles is joyous imagine making the bubbles! There is an art to the way you open the bubbles, waft them around and change their shapes and sizes. Never mind directing them! But my of my! It sure is fun!
It's one of those moments I don't want to forget. Saying yes to something new. Standing on the pavement in Barcelona playing with giant bubbles.
So, I want to keep documenting my travels for myself, and make sure I have a vivid memory of the small moments that make an impact on me. If I get around to sharing those moments with others and encourage them to bring light, joy, or a little rainbow bubble into their lives all the better!
1461 Days on the road 😲 Can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 4 year anniversary of full time travel than eating my way through all the #SanSebastián Pintxos, the top foodie experience in the world in @lonelyplanet’s new #UltimateEatlist (yep, best photography gig I’ve ever had!) - I’m currently on assignment on an amazing Northern Spain food tour with @intrepidtravel and it’s an awesome way to spend my last week of life on the road... it’s finally time to turn my luggage storage in Portugal in to an actual home and make a base (of course with little adventures now and then).
🇪🇸 Thank you to every person I’ve met on this journey who has given me tips, a sofa, a bed and good memories, so many of those connections have come through Instagram and proven to me social media is just that, social, and not only about pretty pictures. You all rock! 🙏🙏
Rice is the main crop grown in Laos and most of Asia. Rice accounts for over 80 percent of agricultural land.
I can tell you they love rice in Asia and so do I but not they like they do.
I still remember when I aimed the drone straight down I yelled at Shawn to come look because I was amazed at this view. Looking at it now I’m still amazed at the view! I love it!!!
One more pic from the beautiful Simien Mountains National Park in #Ethiopia. 🐒
We absolutely loved spending time here, but hanging out with these gelada monkeys was our favourite. Did you know they are often called the bleeding-heart monkey? You can see why in our previous pic. This species of Old World monkey is pretty special as it can only be found in the Ethiopian Highlands. We feel pretty lucky to have shared time with these guys. 😊 #visitethiopia#simienmountains#gelada#visiteverycountry#femaletravelbloggers
Irrigation, Qala-I-Wuzet, Wakhan Corridor, Afghanistan
Water is everything in the Wakhan, settlements are clustered around side-canyon streams, and are laced with irrigation canals directing that water to the fields.
Cruising through Halong Bay's limestone karsts is a must-do in Vietnam. Even better? We love to enjoy a delicious seafood lunch while we're at it too. #BeIntrepid

We were born with two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.
Don’t just receive make sure you give back in life.
One of my favorite parts of traveling is giving back. Asia is one of the easiest countries to make people smile and laugh, especially the kids that have never seen a westerner/white person.
Did you know smiling and laughing adds years to your life?
