Pura Vida by @consciouswanderings: perhaps the best two words in the world
"Pura Vida is the essence of what makes Costa Rica so special. I have never been anywhere where people are so willing to go out of their way to help you. A place where I see so much support for one another and care for their community; it is truly the pinnacle of human decency."
When a tico says Pura Vida to you, they aren't just acknowledging you as a tourist (which is what I thought at first), they are actually wishing you a wonderful day or moment. They are acknowledging the gift that it is that we have another day on this beautiful planet. There is an inherent happiness, a love and passion for life, and ease in Costa Rica that is near impossible to find at home (U.S.)
So to you on this Saturday morning, I say Pura Vida and I hope you have the most beautiful day yet - because every day should"
be special. #puravida#puravidacostarica
El Parque del Buen Retiro in Madrid, Spain. Just one of the many places we stumbled upon earlier this summer. ⠀
Out of all the places we visited in Europe, Madrid was my brother’s favorite. He said it just seemed so “chill” and relaxed. He’s totally right... Lots of great food, fun company, and beautiful surroundings. ⠀
Have you ever visited a city that surprised you with its “chill-ness”?

Guys, I’m so freaking excited to share that I have just posted my 4 Days in Copenhagen Itinerary on my blog!! 🇩🇰
It's a big one, but that's because there are so many things I wanted to share with you. I’ve included the sites you can’t miss, the tastiest restaurants, majestic parks, top photo spots and best swim areas in the city. Plus you’ll be experiencing the city like a local, as a lot of the places I included are approved and loved by my Copenhagen friends. 🏰
After our visit this summer, Copenhagen is now one of my favourite cities in the world! So if you are planning a trip, thinking of going in the future, or just wondering what all the fuss is about, click on the link in my bio! And don't forget to tag your friends below, who could use this itinerary. ✈️
1. You didn’t have to wait for a travel partner to book a trip? #overdoseintravel
2. You didn’t have to save up for a perfect destination & just take a random flight deal?
3. You met your new best friend on your next trip?
4. You went on a trip with people you’ve met on Instagram and you make new friends for life?
5. You go to a bar, send a napkin with your phone # to the cute guy & end up finding love?
6. You move to a place you had heard nothing about?
7. You travel with a group of people and get super inspired?
8. You didn’t care what people thought and just did whatever made YOU happy?
My hope for you is that you can turn your favorite “what ifs” from this list into reality!
I know it’s all possible because they all have happened to me in the past 3 years or so!

Less than TWO MONTHS until we’re back in #Maui - had originally planned to come back for our fifth wedding anniversary, but with sunsets like these, and experiences we wanted to relive as quickly as possible, an accelerated timeline was clearly necessary. 🌅🍍🌺 @adecosmo2

Snoqualmie Falls - just 20 minutes away from my brother's place in Issaquah. Literally in his backyard, yes? 😎
🌎 #TravelTip : Go on a weekday to have the waterfalls all to yourself. You can drive or hike to the Lower Park Area to get to the bottom of the falls
Parking is free. Picnic spots are available or dine at the nearby cafe and restaurant ❤ @travelistajen

Can you find the little bird behind the seagull? Animal #camouflage is often based on the environment and this little guy did a great job blending in!

Colourful drinks and gorgeous views. Here’s to a new chapter!
there is no better way to learn than to travel the world
we should all run away from the jobs that society wants us to have
and free our children from the four walls they live on..
we should all learn how to co working, co living and co loving💛
