Well hi! I can’t believe that I haven’t been on Instagram for two weeks. You guys, this was not intentional! I’ve been at home (I’m not anymore though, I’m in Zimbabwe) and had the best intentions for regular posting but things don’t always go to plan. So I’ve decided that I want to take the time (finally) to tell you all what I’ve been up to and I want to do it in an Instagram live, face to face! I have some really, really exciting announcements, and of course I always just want to chat. Haha. So, tomorrow afternoon at 5:30 PM Sydney time I’ll be live here and I hope to catch you all. PS. Fave shot from South Georgia. You’re welcome. ‍️ #southgeorgia #antarctica #penguin #sunset #olympusinspired #thetravelbootcamp

@aljvd Incredible!

The past few years I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Sri Lanka several times working with @cinnamonhotels. It’s a beautiful, fascinating land, and everyone I met was incredibly warm and welcoming; it’s a place I hope to return to many times and today I stand in solidarity with Sri Lanka as they grieve from the attacks yesterday. I’m so sorry. I hope this place stays in your hearts too and while it may not be Notre Dame which dominated my feed for days, close to 300 people died cruelly and for no reason in a place that had already suffered enough  #prayforsrilanka

6 hours and 91 dunes later we arrived for the night at Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, a stark and wildly beautiful preserve in the Kalahari desert. It’s white salt pans against red sand, tiny Pygmy falcons the size of my hand, and herds of oryxes with their long spearlike horns.

It’s out there, really really out there - like being in an ocean of land around you. With land contributed from South Africa , Namibia, and Botswana it’s one of the largest wilderness areas in the world (3.6 million hectares).

We stayed in simple thatched chalets at @xauslodge, a community owned accommodation benefiting the Khomani San and Mier communities and had the privilege of listening to the bushmen tell some of their legends to us while we sat under the full moon.

Definitely barely scratched the surface and would love to see their famous black-maned lions, but we did get one unforgettably vivid sunset. @meetsouthafrica #InstaMeetSouthAfrica

@nickonken Gorgeousness!

The Philippines is so easy to love. It’s never predictable, it’s always an eventful journey, the locals are some of the friendliest in the world, and just look at it! It’s so beautiful. When you’re visiting a place where boats wave at you while you’re snorkeling to make sure you’re all good, and where nearly everyone asks your name and says hello, it’s no surprise why I keep wanting to come back. It’s like Canada, Sumatra, and South Africa. I’m in a better mood in these places because everyone is just so darn nice. It’s incredible. Where else has been like that for you in the world?

Hotel Joaquin, where I stayed during my @cntraveler assignment in Laguna Beach in partnership with @capitalone, is close to the ocean and a very short bike ride away from downtown Laguna Beach. I prefer city breaks that incorporate accessible nature experiences and this stay was the ideal balance of culture and relaxation. At all hours of the day, there was a calming view of the ocean from my room and the common areas. When I needed more that just a view, I borrowed one of the complimentary bikes to shop at the boutiques and art galleries in town or or I hitched a ride in @hoteljoaquin’s electric Moke to be dropped off at the perfect place to begin a sunset hike. My visit coincided with the First Thursday Art Walk that happens every week all year long in Laguna Beach. The annual art auction was also taking place at the 100 year old Laguna Art Museum where I listened to live classical music while dreaming of which piece I’d bid on from the curated mix of modern and traditional art. Another day, I walked from one end of Heisler Park to the other before settling down to eat lunch with a view of the ocean [of course!] -- all while earning an unlimited 2 miles per dollar on every purchase that I can then transfer to one of 14 participating travel loyalty programs so I can turn around and do it all again wherever my next adventure takes me! #CapitalOnePartner #IamATraveler

@rachelroams @kirstenalana I got married just up the coast at Crystal Cove State Park 😍

My ears hurt so bad when diving from years of “surfers ear”... a bone closure created by prolonged exposure to cold water. 5 years ago I got my hearing checked & they estimated I had about 50% growth... these days who knows. Regardless of the headache inducing pressure, discomfort and impending surgery I can’t help but dive deep to see these unearthly perspectives. Weird how our body will override our minds for an experience.

With a record of 77 kākāpō chicks currently alive, this is the best breeding season in living memory of my favorite creature ️ when there are only 147 of these guys left, this many chicks born is a huge boon to their population and numbers.

@reneeroaming What a feeling 😍

I don't think there is in the world another place like Varanasi. Being one of the 7 holiest cities for Hindus, pilgrims come from all over India to bath in the Ganges River - here known as Ganga Mata, a personification of the goddess Ganga - to purify them of their sins and facilitate liberation from an eternal cycle of life and death.
. 
As soon as I arrived in Varanasi, after a week of relaxation in the tropical heaven of the state of Kerala, the cultural shock was intense. So intense actually that I felt sick for the entire first day, with a strong fever. Not due to any food or water poisoning, that's for sure, but I still can't tell what happened that day. What I do know though is that I absolutely loved my time in Varanasi despite the huge contrast with South India, and the street touts and tuk-tuk drivers being a little too tiring and annoying.
. 
Nothing quite prepares you to Varanasi the first time you visit the city. Even if I had seen hundreds of photos of this place before, even if I was mentally and physically ready to have my 5 senses fully awake, the amount of things happening at the same time exceeded what I thought would be. There's so much life in this city, so much spirituality that one can never be insensitive to it, no matter his hate or love for the place. Whether you think a trip to India is or isn't made for you, any traveler should at least experience once the life at the one and only Varanasi.
. 
Walking along the Ghats every morning and late afternoon and interacting with the warm and friendly locals in the maze of narrow streets of the old city quickly became my favorite daily routine while in Varanasi. I just cannot wait to visit again and stay longer than 3 days next time.

For my @cntraveler assignment in Laguna Beach in partnership with @capitalone, I stayed at @hoteljoaquin, a 2019 Hot List property that allowed me to earn an unlimited 10 miles per dollar because I booked it via hotels.com/venture. I always prefer properties that reflect the destination they’re in with decor, art and cuisine. Auric Road hired Studio Robert McKinley to ensure that is the case by taking what was The Motor Inn and redesigning it as Hotel Joaquin with the vibe of St.Barths, the 1950s Southern California beach culture and the aesthetic of the Mediterranean coast. One-of-a-kind vintage pieces, customized furniture, curated artwork, record players and cabinets bursting with vintage vinyl helped me feel as if I was staying in the home of an old friend. A home that has no TV and no phone but lots of books, board games and beautiful views - my favorite kind. Each morning as I enjoyed my complimentary coffee or tea in my room, I’d read a book or listen to a record as the the sun came up over Shaws Cove. Then I’d join complimentary yoga on the roof deck which features a greens and edible flower garden used by Chef Leo Bongarra of Saline and the bar staff who make their own syrups and bitters. The only difficulty each day was choosing between the complimentary activities such as surfing, relaxing at the heated pool or adventures in Laguna Beach.

So for all of you that were messaging me asking about the photo series in my India stories - this is what it was shot on! This little camera packs so much into a small body. I LOVE using it. It’s one of the smallest cameras I’ve ever used (check out my stories!) and it comes at a really reasonable price point. For travel, especially a trip like this where I was doing carry-on only, having an ultra portable set up is so liberating!

I particularly loved using the 18-150mm lens while walking around the streets and having the ability to capture such a multitude of focal lengths. Feel free to ask any questions but I’m stoked and can’t wait to bring it on my next trip. #shootforgreatness #India

Remember the big assignment I teased back in February? I’m excited to finally get to share with you that I was working for @cntraveler in partnership with @capitalone in Laguna Beach. Only two hours south of where I live in Los Angeles, it’s a very different California experience from the one I live day to day.

Through January 2020, card members like me can earn an unlimited 10 miles per dollar on thousands of properties by booking at hotels.com/venture.

Hi, God? It’s me, Liz. I’ve got some questions...Jokes, jokes, I never talk to god only to myself in my head. Is that the same thing? Wait, never mind. Where am I going with this? The dark rabbithole of my mind can occasionally be a convoluted and scary place, but I’m learning to embrace it. In a world where even perfections doesn’t seem good enough these days, I’m going to strive for imperfection, take that skinny hot instagrammers! I’m tired of the fakeness. I’m tired of the disillusionment. I crave real, honest, messy stories. A few months ago I shared a different version of this photo, which tbh was scary, where I’m facing the camera and you can see my fatigue and sadness on my face while I was trying to smile (for the camera). It was really hard for me to share that unphotoshopped vulnerability, but I think it needed to be said. Don’t try to present the most perfect version of yourself, you’re only doing yourself and others a disservice. Embrace the chaos of life and don’t be afraid to be real! I think that’s where true strength really lies  #ramblings

It’s been on a whirlwind week doing everything from paddling up a canyon in Storms River to driving 11 hours across the northern cape to get to the very remote Kgalagdi desert.

@slacklarsen This is beautiful, Chels!

At first I was disappointed when I went back through my photos and saw this. It’s a beautiful sunset but all I could see was the ‘extra’ fat I didn’t want visible in the photo. It wasn’t there a year ago, but lately my health has been taking a back seat to everything else in life. I’m sure many out there can relate. I struggle with figuring out the right diet and exercise routine when I’m working like crazy, and I can love myself and feel beautiful when I’m five pounds thinner but can I love myself however I am today? That’s why I’m not editing out that roll, and not deleting this photo. I’m posting it because self love is what I’m working on the most right now, and this is facing a fear of mine, that I’m not lovable if I’m not skinnier. Or younger-looking, or any of the other things growing up with Barbie, fashion magazines, and Ariel made me aspire to - things we can’t naturally achieve. But I can achieve self-acceptance. That’s my effort today.

The suggestiveness of a silhouette is what makes it my favorite type of photograph. The who, what, where, when and why seem to become less important as we have less to base our judgements on and can truly appreciate the shape & form of the subject. It forces us to invest more time learning about the image to get answers to those questions. .
The viewer is given permission to in some way envision themselves in the picture. That may be perhaps the most powerful aspect of a silhouette.

This is such an easy way to give back and make sure these beautiful places stay protected for us and future generations. Hopefully, these passes give YOU more opportunities to be inspired by our magnificent world!

Southern California doesn’t have the exact same kind of Spring that I experienced living elsewhere in the United States and Europe. So I was glad @dante.vincent was game for a weekend visit to Descanso Gardens which we had previously visited in December for their nighttime light show. It has themed gardens where landscape architecture styles from around the world are on display for residents and visitors who pay the entrance fee. We paid ours in advance online, showed up early and were almost the first to walk in when it opened. I’d advise this if you want to see the gardens with less people.  Once we entered, we headed straight for the Japanese-style garden — where I took this photo — that [from @descansogardens website] “blends design elements from four classic garden styles. Cross an arched bridge and walk on shaded paths along a koi-filled stream to the teahouse, designed by architect Whitney Smith and built in 1966. The plants in this garden are all native to Asia, and include camellias, azaleas, mondo grass and Japanese maples. The distinctive roof of the teahouse, crafted from blue tiles imported from Japan, is especially striking in the spring when nearby pink cherry and plum trees are in bloom. The garden includes a minka, modeled after a traditional farmhouse, which was designed by Kenneth Masao Nishimoto and built in 1969.” As we weren’t able to travel to Japan this Spring like we’d hoped to do and since a similar area in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden was always our favorite in New York, this part of Descanso ended up being our favorite at this time of year. It felt the most different from where we live near Runyon Canyon, which is more arid, punctuated by palm trees, cactus and succulents and which doesn’t really have anything blooming except the plants on our balcony. (Not complaining. Just drawing a contrast.) Does this sound like somewhere you’d want to visit when you travel to Los Angeles?
