Started my day off with a hike on Saria island which is about 100 meters from Karpathos. Then cooled off with a swim in the crystal clear sea. Happy Friday! #VisitKarpathos

A woman of the Butbut tribe in Buscalan smoking a cigar in front of her home. Like many other woman in Buscalan, she has several tattoos with patterns and symbols. Whang-Od also applied tattoos to women in Kalinga. Primarily for aesthetic purposes. Fatok is the term used for tattooing women to show beauty and wealth. If you ask them what the meaning is of these tattoos they will say 'to be more beautiful'. When an arm of a woman is tattooed just like Whang-od's own tattoos, the family of the woman is obliged to pay the tattoo artist a piglet or bundle of harvested rice.
Ok so, when I was plating this, I totally didn’t see the resemblance to Angry Birds but now I can’t unsee it. And you prob can’t either. Sorry. Swipe for a better photo.

I might look posh or glamorous here in this photo, but I definitely tripped down the stairs about 5 minutes after this photo was taken!
I don’t know what it is, but lately I’ve been trippin’ on vacations...literally lol! =================================
TRAVEL TIPS: I promised to share some good ones with you about Catalina Island so here they are! Definitely book your ferry ride in advance to reserve your ticket. It was so easy upon arrival to simply give your name at the desk, grab your ticket and board!
If you’re an adventurer you’ll love this island. They have parasailing, waterskiing, kayaking, zip lining, electric mountain biking, hiking, lounging, there’s a little bit of something for everyone here and the people that live here are some of the kindest souls! I was coming off a cold while here and one of the lovely owners at Cafe Metropol gave me these delicious turmeric wellness shots on the house. Definitely check them out while you are here for all your green juice and smoothie cravings! Excellent service!😊
My favorite place to eat here was Coyote Joe’s! There Mexican food was delicious, fresh, and the atmosphere was fun and lively!
If your looking to go to Catalina for a couple days when it’s jumping, the most hopping nights I believe are Sunday, Monday, Tuesday because the influx of cruise ships that arrive around those days. If you’re looking for peace and quite go the other days of the week and enjoy great conversation with the locals and relaxation in paradise!
What’s your favorite adventure activity?
