Places to be in MayLike0

It’s not so easy to always feel the urge to travel. Passion. It lies in all of us. Recently, I realized that so many of us keep planning for the future and sometimes, things don’t even work out. Planning is not bad, but what is wrong with today? What is wrong with saying that THIS IS my investment on my life. No matter how near or far, cheap or expensive. Today is where your will to live and not just survive happens. Not in the future. Places to be in May is not only for May but for summer too and don’t only stop here. You have Japan, Iceland, Asia etc but these below are few ideas that just popped in my mind.

I’ll always remember Ernest Hemingway when I think of taking advantage of my life today. Don’t you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you’re not taking advantage of it? Do you realize you’ve lived nearly half the time you have to live already.

Jamaica

The birthplace of reggae, the national motto is “Out of Many, One People” and if you keep your eyes open, you will see it in the faces of each and every person you meet. I urge you to read up on the country’s history before visiting- you will have a greater appreciation of the local diversity once there. The Caribbean is my favorite place to be. Jamaica is a whole new world. It’s for everyone. Families, Adventure and nature lovers, music lovers, fantastic BBQs and road trips! Don’t miss out before hurricane season!

Seychelles

There are so many reasons to fall in love with this place and the breathtaking beaches are definitely one of them. Known as the backdrop for honeymooners, Seychelles is for everyone and not just those going for a romantic break.

It’s a place for families, singles, honeymooners, adventurer lovers and a place to get away for some peace and quiet.

Amsterdam

It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world in my opinion. The four seasons, the dams, the tulips, the history, the architecture and one of the most friendliest people. It’s true that the wind in Amsterdam at times feels like Dorothy Gale will land right at your front door, but you wont find a city more beautiful as Amsterdam in the spring time with their open markets, fantastic shopping and music at every corner!

Stay at Sofitel The Grand or The Dylan Amsterdam

  • Home at Beit Douma, this is how a traditional restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home looks like from the inside. Douma is one of the best-preserved villages in Lebanon, lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters.  The name in Phoenician means “calm and rest”, in Greek it means “house”. 🇱🇧 #Home
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything... 💫
  • Will probably delete this later but just couldn’t NOT post this video! I’ve always dreamed raising a golden retriever since I was a little girl, and in February, it became a reality. This was Charlie at 3 months and slide over the photo number 2, today at 8 months. 2 more weeks and I’ll be back with him!!! Share your advices on raising a Golden ❤️ I would love to hear your experiences.
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry 💕
  • Bird’s eye view from @joalimaldives 
I can never get bored of this view! 😍
  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’ and it’s no longer forcing things... it’s been a while since I looked back at some memories in S.E Asia, It taught me so much, but also, it’s a chapter of my life that I feel I’ve closed a long time ago.
  • Passion and inspiration are so very powerful and can easily be intimidating and out of reach sometimes. 
I haven’t been able to pick up my camera yet... Which is odd because, my camera is my source of ‘connection’ to almost everything. 
Sometimes you’re just not ready... And I’m not going to push myself. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊
  • Once upon a time in Kenya 🇰🇪- I’m trying really hard remembering their names, but all that comes to mind is Sophie, I’m sure one of them is called Sophie... Not sure why? Don’t you think? 😊 
Have an incredible weekend everyone 💕
  • Sunrise in Madeira Island. 
It’s been a while since I felt inspired to pick up my camera and go. Maybe it’s the fact that, despite my love for the long summers and flip flops, I’m ready for the unknown, the Scandinavian winters, the daring adventures & new beginnings. 
I’m ready for the sleepless nights under the northern lights and the exceptional early pink sunrises. Someone special told me to learn to be where my feet is... to be present where I am at the moment... Possibly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time, but, this caption refutes it. 😊 I’ll try again tomorrow 💕
  • Not long before the grand re-opening of @gili.lankanfushi in Maldives. The island is close to my heart and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening on the 1st of December 🏖
  • At an altitude of 1800 meters... Ixsir winery in Lebanon is one of the popular winery in the country. Their Winery was named by CNN as one of the greenest building in the world, and lately won the international A+ Award. 🇱🇧
  • Looking back at some photos this morning. This was taken 3 years ago in Seychelles at @fsseychelles - Definitely one of the best views I’ve seen during my travels.
