I've always been fascinated by the stars, and ever since I moved to New Zealand where we have such clear unpolluted night skies, I'm obsessed ⭐️ was stoked to learn that @cardronaparksnz my local ski field, also offers night sky tours with an expert astronomer in addition to great shreds 🏂 the perfect way to learn more about the universe, and all the constellations and phenomenons in the Southern Hemisphere makesmefeelsotiny milkywayfordays

I love flowers 💐 two weeks ago was my first Modern Travel Media Summit in Sydney, which I helped create with @laurenepbath and @georgiarickard ❤️ we included these amazing flowers from @littleflowerssydney as a surprise to some of the delegates - thoughtful little $30 bouquets to easily send around Sydney, what a clever idea! I buy myself flowers every week and it's one of those little things that makes a difference in my moods ☺️ what about you? 📷 @madeleinebjones

An east coast girl all my life, I grew up in the mountains of Virginia and was educated in rural New England before I made the move overseas, and fall is in my bones 🍁 A creature of comfort at heart, I love the crap out of autumn; October is my favorite month in the US, and I’m gutted to be missing it this year. I was planning to go home for a visit this month but ended up canning it; I’m really exhausted and burnt out, and I just need a break. So if you find yourself in an beautifully autumnal place, put on a sweater, head to a cabin in the woods and drink a pumpkin spice latte for me ✌🏻basic pumpkinpieanyone

Memories of camping in my @motorhomerepublic campervan outside Rotorua under a perfectly still sky with the Milky Way twinkling over my head ⭐️ I never forget how lucky I am to live in such a safe and pure place, where I can still see all the stars in a city, I can camp alone in a van, and of course, not wear shoes letsgomotorhome skyfullofstars

I'll never understand why people feel the need to leave hate comments and troll online, let alone troll me. I'm delightful, right? But troll they do and I've got no shortage of them. And you asked I delivered ☺️ I've got a roundup of last years hate comments up on the blog. Only the best for you guys, enjoy ✌🏻 hatersgonnahate (link is in my Stories)

Just hanging out with Kyrgyzstan's champion eagle. It's one of the last places on earth where the tradition of hunting with golden eagles has been preserved. Isn't she magnificent? @discoverkyrgyzstan check out my blog for the full story of the eagle hunters of Kyrgyzstan 📷 @eric_supertramp

Happy to be riding on horseback deep into the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Every time I go riding, I love it more and more ❤ except when I look at this picture and I can see the unbalanced saddlebags which eventually led to my saddle sliding off and depositing me on the ground WHY ME @discoverkyrgyzstan 📷 @eric_supertramp thanksfortheheadsupEric ouch

If there is one thing I've learned in 10 years of travel and visiting 50ish countries it's that we live on an amazing, beautiful, surprising and diverse planet. And we only have one of it and we are destroying it at a rate that's almost laughable. All these places that I've been privileged enough to experience, I want the future to have that chance too. What right do we have to take it away? The @wtandtc (World Travel and Tourism Council) has identified 10 key issues around travel that we can change ourselves that can make a difference. I get it, it's so easy to sit back and be all like, well what can I do about global warming? I can’t make a difference to such big issues, right? It feels like these things are in the hands of government, lobbyists and powerful businesses who's only interest is $$$. But imagine if we all stood up and did something? Well that's the only time anything changes, right? So this month I'm beginning by pledging to demand sustainability in travel. I pledge to demand to see the environmental and social policies of the companies with which I book my travels and who I work with, and I am going to try and educate others in the meantime. This is gonna be hard but worth it. I’ve got links to my blog about it in my Insta Stories along with links to the Is It Too Much To Ask campaign - pick a pledge and join me on trying to keep our world beautiful ✌🏻WTTCpledge isittoomuchtoask

My good friend all around amazing human @brandoyelavichexplorer spontaneously joined me for a day on my road trip around the North Island with @motorhomerepublic ✌🏻 Brando is the first person to walk the entire coast of New Zealand (took him 600 days) living off the land! We got to Taupo and this stunning lone tree at sunset, and I was all like, how cool would it be if there was a swing in that tree, and Brando being the total legend that he is, was all like, I CAN MAKE ONE, an boom, sunset tree swings were had by all! letsgomotorhome weeeeeeee

After camping near Tongariro National Park on the North Island in my cozy @spaceshipsrentals luxury van, I made myself get up for sunrise only to have all the mountains covered in fog 😫 bummed out, I turned around just in time to see the mighty Mt. Taranaki glowing pink hundreds of kilometers away in the distance 😱 that definitely made the early start worth it! @motorhomerepublic letsgomotorhome
