I am an activist irrelevant to the cause, motivated irrelevant of the situation, an annoying health conscious, happy with the little things, sports and adventure lover, adrenaline junkie, curious about life and love sharing my experiences through my camera lens. I dream of nothing, if I feel like doing it, I work on achieving it.”

  • Please don’t ride elephants 🐘 Ride bicycles instead 🚴 
@belmondresidenceangkor 👊🏻
  • The gates of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Angkor empire. There are 5 gates to the capital, built in the 12th century. The main gate was made with sculptures of 54 gods, one on each side, and the same number of demons on the other. I got that eerie feeling while driving through. I was in a Tuk Tuk and couldn’t help but stop and take a deep breath before entering, my heart was beating out of my chest. I’ve only made it to 2 gates but would love to go back and learn more. Looking at the picture got all the feelings back 💕
Thanks to @beautifulcambodia for guiding me!
  • You will always be the one person I’ll never stop looking for in a crowded place 💕
  • A little green overdose and into the jungle 🦋
  • I am made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever loved me, cared or inspired me or spoken one word of encouragement to me. Who I am is because of the people in my life 💕
  • They told me I had to be ready at 4:30am to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat, the UNESCO site and the largest religious monument in the world. A Tuk Tuk drove me to the site, it was about 30 minutes off-road(ish), dark with no street lights and it was cold. I sat outside the temple gates looking at absolutely nothing, total darkness. I couldn’t see a thing for an hour. Then, sunrise... and I start seeing shadows of the temple and colors in the sky and there it was. They said that I was one of the luckiest ones because October is the wettest season and so they rarely get a clear sky at sunrise. And here I was, staring and what was once a black endless nothing to a place I always dreamed of ever seeing! 💕
  • You know how sometimes, your life is so perfect you’re afraid for the next moment, because it couldn’t possibly be quite as good? That’s what it feels like being in Cambodia for the first time.
  • Permission to call it my own... permission to hold on to whatever I fall in love with.
  • It was the last morning in London @thesavoylondon - I always get emotional leaving this city! A place I once called home 💕Happy weekend everyone!
  • Spent one morning with Annee on @demamielskin farm where she taught me what she learned on Chinese medicine, meditation and the way her essential oils were made. I even got to make my own! Her products are sold on @netaporter and she has a 3 year waiting list!!!! She’s an incredible woman and partnered up with @virginatlantic to provide the ‘Altitude oil’ for upper class passengers. #LivefromVirgin
  • I spent a morning @theroofgardens , A Virgin Limited Edition by @richardbranson - An English woodland garden, with over 100 species of trees, a stream, and a garden pond that is the home to pintail ducks and four flamingos called Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks!

  • Souls tend to come back to who feels home. This is one of my favorite cities, giving me always the sweetest memories on every take off and landing.
