  • Celebrate quitting the job that was killing your soul 🌊💕
  • Day 10: Sailing for two weeks across the Balkans/Dalmatia - I'm feeling so far away from everything... The scariest thing about distance... is that you don’t know whether they’ll miss you or forget you when you're gone.
It's bittersweet 💕
  • King's landing 🏰 (I couldn't find a better caption it was stuck in my head the whole time!!!) 😊
  • I worked out what would make me happy, and I worked out what I wanted to do, and I trained myself to do the job that would make those two things happen. 'You make it sound so simple.' He said
'It is simple,' she said. 'The thing is, it's also a lot of hard work. And people don't want to put in a lot of work. But I didn't get here simply by wishing for it.'
  • A fortified village dating back to the 15th century with stories and legends, the island of Sveti Stefan and the beautiful @amansvetistefan
  • The largest lake in Southern Europe. Skadar Lake, 70% in Montenegro, fully protected as National Park - 30%  being in Albania. There is so much history here to take in - Jelena, my guide is a walking encyclopedia!! So if you ever visit Montenegro and want to learn about this beautiful country, make sure to book your tours with @360_monte ---------------------------------------
@gomontenegro thank you for helping me with my tours 💕
  • Serious crazy fire sunsets in Montenegro!! 😲🔥
  • 6am foggy morning in Prcanj from my beautiful apartment in Montenegro 🇲🇪. I'm welcoming the beautiful change 💕
  • I miss you when I can't sleep... 💕
  • Montenegro!! My summer Balkan tour starts right here! A great starting point thanks to @flydubai's new(ish) route to Tivat. On my first day, I was so ambitious (as you can see on my instastories) and covered so much in 13 hours! I have @360_monte to thank for the last minute booking of this tour and for having possibly the best (no exaggeration) tour guide ever! --------------------------------------
@gomontenegro ❤️
  • I was made for sunny summer days! It's been a crazy beautiful summer and what was initially planned for a 3 week summer break is actually lingering a little longer... scratch that.. a lot longer than expected. 😊
  • I crave space. It helps me breathe.
