🌎 You know that thing that you shouldn’t be able to do? 🚵🏻♀️ Yeah, do it anyway. Hurting, but feeling quite accomplished. The longest day for both mileage and uphills, and I FREAKING DID IT! **Blame all “out of character moments in severe dehydration couple with a celebratory pint. 🍻
🌎 Playing around at Four Dances before hitting the road. It feels amazing to get out, move, and breathe after a crazy packed week! Billings has been such an unexpected lovely visit! 🥾
🌎 “Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam; Where the deer and the antelope play. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word, And the skies are not cloudy all day.” ☀️ 🏕 The skies are clearing and it looks to be a perfect night for camping at #theodorerooseveltnationalpark - heads up for this guy hanging out at the scenic overlook! 🥾
🌍 Hello Athens! Jet lag can’t undermine this view from my hotel balcony! 😍 Stunning, isn’t it?! Though tomorrow is a work day, I can’t say I’m minding so much! 😉
🌏 Birth Month Day 26: From below ground to well above, and a beautiful day to boot! ☀️ A “Retreat” day, complete with surfing 🏄♀️, yoga 🧘♀️ , and a massage 💆, with this as the back drop. 🏖 ✨
🌏 Birth Month Day 25: From jumping off bridges to abseiling, zip lining, wading, tubing, and climbing the occasional waterfall... underground. While the stars dazzled last night, today I had the surreal experience of seeing stars underground in Waitomo’s glow worm caves. They were so bright, the bluish glow reflected in the dark water.
🌏 Birth Month Day 24: After an adrenaline packed few days, it’s time to chill... campfire 🔥, sunsets 🌅, wine 🍷 , and a good book 📖 . And more stars 🌌 than I’ve ever seen. A magical night glamping ⛺️ in Waitomo brought my pulse back to normal.
🌏 Birth Month Day 23, Part 2: Go big or go home. 🧶 At 134 meters, New Zealand’s highest bungy jump, Nevis had me shaking my bead “no”... and then I did it anyway. 😳
🌏 Birth Month Day 23, Part 1: 🥝 Kiwi ingenuity at its best! The original bungy at Karawau Bridge is the go-to for those seeking a thrill. 🧶 And look, I think my form is improving!
🌏 Birth Month Day 22: And then there’s the time when your friends jump off the cliff with you. Backwards. Mom, dad - don’t watch! 😮😬😳
🌏Birth Month Day 21: 🍷 Drinks with a view. A stunning day in Queenstown meant lunch along the water, a gondola ride for spectacular panoramas 🚠, a bit of walking 🥾 and luging to get the blood pumping... and of course, the icing on the cake, drinks and dinner as the sun set. 🌄 Pure bliss. ☺️
🌏Birth Month Day 20: A moody and mesmerizing cruise in Milford Sound (actually a fjord). This was one of those things that everyone said I had to do, it’s a must, and I didn’t truly believe that. But I shrugged, booked a cruise, and played along. In the end, you couldn’t drag me away... the fjords has cast a spell. 🌫 Maybe it was the mists, maybe it was the hundreds of waterfalls, maybe it was the dramatic landscape... or maybe it was knowing that every day, the fjords show themselves differently. Whatever it is, I’m a true convert. Milford Sound is a “must” in my book.
