I knew this weekend was going to be a wild and amazing adventure when getting to the location required hopping on a sea plane. Thanks to @wildnutritionadventures for the unbelievable weekend and to @fridayharborseaplanes for helping me get there. More photos to come!
Flowing creeks, waterfalls, alpine lakes, glaciers, endless peaks and a storm are some of the beautiful things we saw yesterday. We headed to one of my favorite areas to hike/scramble, along the Icefields Parkway. I almost cancelled to go as I’ve had a busy week, but I suffer from FOMO, and there’s only a small window in the year that we can do some scrambles. I was tired but the views took away every pain in my body. As we were approaching the summit we could see a storm rolling in. I was exhausted and loose scree going up made it more difficult, I took energy that I didn’t have and pushed myself to the summit because I wasn’t going to miss it, I worked hard to get up there. We had probably 5 mins to enjoy the summit before we knew we needed to run down the mountain. We heard buzzing and we knew that was not good, yes we should have known better, but it’s easier said than done. We run down like there’s no tomorrow, I look back now and laugh because I remember I was so exhausted and the last thing I would have done was run, but when adrenaline kicks in, there’s no aching in your body. We made it back down safe and wet but with happy hearts, and that’s what makes a day memorable.
Always great adventures with my girls @hollyox and @samisclimbinghigh

No matter how many times I visit this place, it’s always as beautiful and mesmerizing. Fun day at the office ⛰😎 @aventurasremotas ...
No importa cuantas veces visite este lugar, siempre será igual de hermoso y fascinante. Día divertido en la oficina 😎
🎈Quiz: Can you guess where loose balloons end up?
Hint: It’s here. They end up here.
Summer is a time for parties! Which means lots of balloons. I get it, they’re fun and now they make them into words... but what happens to them after your 3 hour party?
“At best...balloons become litter. At worst, they become a wildlife hazard” • End up in waterways
• They take 4 years to biodegrade
• Found in bird nests and other habitats
• Ingested by animals
• Washed up on beaches
...just to name a few.
Not to mention, helium is a limited resource. We use it for MRI’s, dentistry, LCD screens, and so much more! Helium use has an end date.
Do the 🌎 a favor, skip the balloons!
as much as i preach slaying everyday, pushing your boundaries, and living life to the fullest, i think it’s incredibly important to realize that sometimes all you need
is to show up for yourself
lately this has been the case for me & at first i was disappointed in myself;
i went from feeling my very happiest and alive when hiking and traveling solo around the world to feeling pretty alone and unsatisfied when i wasn’t surrounded by people
i went from being so passionate about side hustles and ideas to not giving them much thought or action
the list can go on but ~point is~ a lot of things changed at once in my life and i was not there for myself // first // so the impact on my life as a whole was greater, i did not need to be pushing everything aside and keep moving 110%, i needed to slow down and be there for myself
yes we should slay,
defeat our fears,
and work to be greater,
but in order to do that
we have to listen to the moments and phases of
simply needing to reel it all in and show up for ourselves in the simplest of ways.
so that’s my wish for you 🤗 honor when you need to return to your roots & absorb where you are and where you have come from. honor that you deserve to be proud of how you grew, how you let go, and how you pushed yourself to be a better person.
honor that // sit in that as long as you need // and then have at it again 🥰

Прихожу в себя в спокойной реке после безумного моря. Здесь совершенно дикие споты: очень сильное течение, волны набегают одна за другой, не позволяя зайти в воду и сбивая с доски. Так что минут 30 занимает только сам заход, после чего ты уже выдохшийся, нахлебавшийся воды, побитый и поцарапанный, обгоревший, а тренер тебе кричит: давай новый круг делай! И так по несколько часов. Обожаю серфинг! Вечно тебя испытывает.

Durante los últimos años he estado más tiempo viajando que en casa ✈️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En 2015 decidí dejar mi trabajo, dar un cambio radical a mi vida y abandonarlo todo para viajar por África, Asia y Latinoamérica sólo con una mochila 🎒 Cuando volví a Tenerife en 2017 decidí crear Junglemat pero tenía muy claro que no quería dejar de lado los viajes. Por eso el año pasado estuve 7 meses en Centroamérica.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Este año decidí centrarme al 100% en Junglemat así que me he quedado en mi preciosa isla. Pero en agosto vuelvo de nuevo a Guatemala y por eso creo que es hora de darle vida de nuevo a mi antigua cuenta de viajes @larainaction⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cuando viajo me encanta estar en contacto con la naturaleza y eso es lo que intento transmitir allí. @larainaction es una cuenta mucho más personal, muy verde y en la que hablo de mis experiencias por el mundo. Si te apetece conocer un poquito más de mis aventuras allí puedes seguirlas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En cualquier caso también contaré muchas cosas aquí en @myjunglemat para enseñarte el proceso de fabricación de nuestros productos y cómo le damos vida a los tejidos de las artesanas ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏼 ¿Hay algo que te gustaría ver en concreto de nuestro viaje a Guatemala?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Adventure is a priority for me. That's why I find adventure in my every day life. In my job, in my new friends, in my personal time...everywhere🌍
That's what you have to do though. Put adventure above other things and make it a lifestyle. People don't magically save up enough money to travel around Europe by accident. The time to travel doesn't usually fall into people's laps, either. It's hard, but you have to put adventure before everything else to make it work. .
Sunset sail past Alcatraz Island and underneath the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. This is where I thrive. This is my adventure🌍❤
I like summer because most of my outfits are some form of band t-shirt with patterned skirts, pants, or shorts. I feel like I might grow out of that at some point, but I’ve not reached that point yet ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Just gonna move in here
When living out of a backpack, everywhere is home.
| With temps pushing 100 degrees before 10 AM & a grueling climb to the top; there were a good many “WTF ARE WE DOING!?” moments on this trail. But that downhill... open up... big grin... and that cold beer at the end... it’s always worth it.
Oof what a day. I got a big bite of the lonelies today which is really unusual for me as I normally love hiking on my own... but after being so spoiled with lots of friends to hike with lately it suddenly felt pretty isolating (not to mention boring) to be doing this beautiful walk by myself. But after a few tears and a massive halloumi burger I pulled it together and managed to have a really chill afternoon, and by this evening am legit enjoying myself. So THANK YOU to peeps who reached out, just a “you go girl” fires me up to no end and I felt a ton less lonesome and more motivated to do this thing for it. Cheers to you! ❤️🤙🏼❤️ Oh and here’s some pics of the south west coast path, it’s a babe.
From a leaves hat perspective, this is where I shifted back to Neverland.🌞🌚 •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Embracing my white hairs!
Keep them or dye them??
I’ve done been cracked open by this lifestyle with the burning desires to just explore more.
In the last year that I’ve been vibin’ on the raw living fruits/foods my partner and I took a major road trip across the Southwest, which I believe partly sparked a quick move to a completely new city. These little life jives are things I could not have seen myself doing in the past - especially not with a sense of excitement, ease, appreciation and gratitude. Any chance I have gotten to travel in my younger years, which was not a whole lot, I was often riddled with fears and underlying discomfort.
Again, like so many other little ripple effects from the changes I have made to heal deep, this stuck piece of me is also transforming and my once hidden drive to explore and expand - without fear - tugs at my sinew.
I realize now that this move was all about that. Breaking down the walls of comfort. The walls that got even stronger and taller when I was sick. These backyard mountains represent all of it. I am in a state of awe each day I wake up here and walk outside. All around me are opportunities to root myself amid the towers and bounties of nature - to breathe in all the possibilities that come from these invigorating new bits of life.
