I love all the feedback that I’ve been getting on my Pilot Topics. Last week we talked about ‘Fear of Flying’ and this week about getting your medical class 1 done, that every pilot that flies commercially have to have! I’ll share more on pilotmaria.com about my check and answer some more of your questions! Thank you for being the best community on Instagram! Keep sending your questions and suggestion on topics you want me to talk about! #pilotstuff#flying#pilotmaria#pilot#travel#globetrotter#explorer#airline

Take me back to places like this! This photo is from ‘Honeymoon Island’ in Fiji (I was not there on my honeymoon, it’s just the name of the island 😂) I’m looking at the location where one of my absolute favorite movies were filmed, Tom Hanks ‘Cast Away’ No movie makes me cry as much as when Wilson, a volleyball and Hanks only friend during the four years that he was stranded on the island dramatically disappear with with the waves, in Hanks last attempt to get off the island 😭🏐 Counting down to my next trip, Hawaii in less than 6 day!! I can not wait!! 🌴 Photo 📸 by @tonyedgar#fiji#castaway#honymoonisland#fijiislands#vacationmode#beachdays#tropical

Not my usual posting time on Instagram, I tend to post late in the afternoon when I can make sure that I have enough time to sit down and answer comments and engage with you after posting. But today I was just to excited to tell you that I finally, FINALLY posted my ‘Fear of Flying’ article on my blog, pilotmaria.com🙌 But it’s not a closed chapter because of that, my mission isn’t over before no one is no longer scared of flying 👩‍✈️ so keep sharing your experience and I’ll keep doing my best to help xx now WEEKEND! What’s your weekend plans? #pilot#fearofflying#pilotmaria#traveller#globetrotter#iphonex#shotoniphone#WHPvibes#aroundtheworld#takeoff

Me being me 🤷‍♀️🤪 Doing my own thing in my own weird way. It can be difficult to be yourself, always finding ways to fit in, follow the latest trends etc I got tired of it so decided to be me, you should try it, feels so good! x Comment something odd “weird” about yourself, maybe you’re not as lonely about with it as you think that you are ❤️

If you watched my IGTV that I posted Friday you know that my favorite part about New Zealand was all the camping, I love sleeping in a tent! It’s something about waking up tucked up in my sleeping bag, hearing all the morning birds. Here from Bay of Islands on New Zealand’s North island. Still working on my blog post with my fav New Zealand experiences coming soon! (Where does all the time go? 🤷‍♀️ So many ideas on what I want to write/share I so little time 😂) Photo 📸 by @tonyedgar#bayofislands#newzealand#camplife#camping#msrgear#outdoors#pilotmaria#sunrise

Flip your phone 90 degrees ✌️We did over 5000km in this car, from the northernmost point of New Zealand to the south. Tony and I have known each other for about two years and it’s funny how well you get to know someone from car conversations, happy to have shared this road trip with you, best road trip companion! Here are some random GoPro clips taken from the road, I love how accessible @gopro is and how you can get that ‘in the moment shot’ all shots using my Hero 7. I hope you’ll enjoy it. If you have any questions about any of the locations that we’ve been to please leave your comment below and I’ll do my best to answer. Now have an amazing Friday xx #gopro#adventure#travel#roadtrip#travelmore#pilotmaria#goprohero7

Today on my meditation app they guided us through self esteem and self compassion. How hard it is to feel good about ourselves and how we compare ever little action to somebody else. They brought up social media and a sentence that particular stayed with me was: On Social media we compare our worst with someone’s absolute best’ and that couldn’t be more true! On social media we share our best moments, the perfect sunset or that one morning that we managed to get out of bed before sunrise, we take several photos from one perfect location or moment and save that to post later, when it’s not as sunny, for the day we might stay in bed all day. I don’t travel all the time, yes I am fortunate to travel more that most, but also, bare in mind that when I go somewhere I take photos to last for weeks, months and sometimes I would even do a year throwback to a particular moment in life that I cherished. So please, don’t compare your life to my or anyone else’s online life, that is very often not the whole truth, we all, ALL have struggles in life! #socialmedia#splits#pilotmaria#travel#globetrotter#wanderlust

One question that kept repeating on my recent Q&A was ‘fear of turbulence’ I’ve always explained turbulence as ‘The same thing as driving your car on a bumpy road’ Your might get tossed around a bit but it won’t break your car. Same with turbulence, it might be uncomfortable but it won’t break the airplane. Reading all your question that you sent made me realize how many that are actually held back from flying due to fear, and it shouldn’t be like that, so I’d love to help! But I will need your help! If you are scared of flying can you comment below (or send me a DM if you want to remain private) and in more depth tell me what exactly it is that scares you so that I can explain it better. And if anyone has any helpful tips, have you been scared of flying, how did you over come it, etc please comment that too, I’d love to include it (with credit) in next upcoming blog post. Thank You xx 💋 ps did you read my latest post on pilotmaria.com? #aviation#pilotmaria#fearofflying#travel#flying#globetrotter#backlight#sonyrx100vi#rxmoments

First of all, THANK YOU all so much for commenting your captions below! I had a blast going though them, but only one could be selected (although you’re all winners ❤️) here it goes sent by @nunomcslemos There are days your coffee tastes like magic, your playlist makes you dance, strangers make you smile and the night sky simply touches your soul. There are days you just fall in love with being alive again. Beautifully written! What a poem you are! Thank you @nunomcslemos for sending this 💫 x Maria

Just landed after today’s flight ✈️ Today I’ve been to Faro in Portugal and back to London. You have no idea how GOOD it feels to have my own apartment to get back to rather than a hotel room! There’s a 50/50 chance that I’ll go out for a run or crash in the bed behind me 😂 #pilotlife#uniladadventure#myhome#letsgosomewhere#travel#pilotmaria#globetrotter#shotoniphone

Hiking Gertrude Saddle, Fiordland, South Island New Zealand. It was an approximately 4 hour hike from bottom to the top, only 3.5 kilometers one way but going uphill most of the trek. Gertrude Saddle has a 5.0 rating with Google and no wonder why, the hike itself was fun, not too busy, reasonably challenging and the pay off at the end was worth every single step of the way! We used Scott Cooks book ‘NZ Frenzy’ for our South Island adventures, I wasn’t able to find him on here but get this book from Amazon just search on ‘NZ Frenzy’ amazing book that take you to the classic tourist places but also the local hidden gems. Poor @tonyedgar ...sorry forcing him to spin 40 seconds in and being attacked by a bee 1 min 40 seconds in 🐝‘Get off’....I’m talking about the bee 🤪 ha ha Video 100% @gopro@goprouk HERO 7, how sick is the stabilization! And I think the built in microphones are doing an amazing job! Video as #brandambassador for GoPro ☺️☺️ Music @epidemicsounds I hope you enjoyed this video, I have more videos to share from NZ bare with me xx #GoPro#GoProhero7#NeverStopExploring#outthere#AllAboutAdventures#outdoors#hiking#globetrotter#uniladadventure#voyaged

Insert motivational quote: Rocky roads often leads to beautiful destinations. This caption is inspired by @alyssalynch caption when she yesterday shared parts of her journey, btw you’re a total girlboss! 👊 I feel so fortunate to today be able to travel the world, I don’t take anything for granted and it wasn’t long ago that I was busting my butt off cleaning tables, worked double shifts and saved every penny that I possible could towards my flight training. Fast forward to today when I fly the Boeing 737 and spend as much of my free time that I can exploring places like this, one of my favorite spots, Glacier Point road, Yosemite and I couldn’t be happier! What are you passionated about? (also, don’t mind my heavy breathing in the video 😂🤪) Photo 📸 by @tonyedgar go and give him some love. #yosemite#yosemitenationalpark#pilotmaria#beautifuldestinations#uniladadventure#discoverearth#exploremore#letsgosomewhere
