I'm a female, woman, girl...πŸ‘© . I was born without a choice of my gender and still continue to live in a world where my choices are reduced, mocked, scrutinised. . I shouldn't feel afraid to walk alone, I shouldn't be afraid to speak my mind. I shouldn't be afraid to say no. I shouldn't be afraid of the opposite sex. . In light of recent happenings in the news, where two young womens lives have been cut short while out enjoying life. The world is debating whether they should have been travelling alone on their journeys. . Do not be afraid. The World is filled with kind, loving people. We as women are just as capable of travelling alone as men are. The problem does not lie in our choices to live our lives but in those who think they hold a higher power over us. Who still think they can control, abuse, hurt or scare us. . Power isn't that great when it's used to weaken others.

Learn to love yourself...πŸ’• . We will always find many flaws within ourselves but it's how we see those flaws that matter. . Imperfectly perfect comes to mind. Loving these so called 'flaws' and celebrating yourself in it's entirety. Because being you is rather great...πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• . Can you name one thing you love about yourself? 🌸

Age is a funny thing; how we measure our time on this earth with years. Each year having different rules or pressures attached to it.. . . What if your 20s were only about chasing freedom, learning, travelling and experimenting. What if your 70s were also meant to be lived that way? . . What would happen if we threw away all expectations that come attached with an age and just live by our own rules? . . I think we would all be much happier. So here's to all night parties in your 60s, changing careers in your 30s and experimenting in your 20s. Here's to breaking the mould and living life on your own terms...πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

Our Beautiful Planet Earth...πŸŒπŸ’˜ . . This small, beautiful island in Mexico is FULL of trash. No matter how many beach cleans people do, there always seems to be more...πŸ’” . . The island you come to visit, to swim with Whale Sharks, to see the flamingos, manta rays, crocodiles... We are slowly killing and destroying their homes because of our own greed and laziness. . . This epidemic is happening everywhere, not just here in Holbox and we need to come together to find a solution. To try harder. To give an actual sh*t. . What are you doing to help reduce your negative impact on our planet? πŸŒπŸ’•

Island life. Living in another country, another culture, different language, different climate, traditions and rules. . . Most people think my life here is sunshine and margaritas and they couldn't be more wrong. It's been a rollercoaster ride of emotions but the challenge has been rewarding and at this moment, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else with anyone else..πŸ’• . . Have you lived somewhere other than your home country? Suffered culture shock?

Saying No isn't always as bad as you think. . . I used to be weaker, more likely to say yes and just do whatever made other people happy but a series of unfortunate events and huge life lessons later, I learnt that standing up for myself and also for others, is SO important. . . Now I would say that I'm not afraid to say no, to stand up for what I believe in or to stand up for others who haven't quite yet found their voice. . . I'm a firm no to bullying, cruelty, a boring life, greed, lack of empathy, deceit and dishonesty. I'm a no to a life of always agreeing to other people terms, a no to a life without loving hard and without believing in myself more than anyone else could. . . It's ok to raise your voice, to be heard, to disagree, to challenge an idea but it's also important to be respectful. Respect YOUR voice and be respectful of others because with that kind of fire in our bellies, we can change the World..πŸ’•

When a uncertain whisper becomes a certain voice, when promises turn into action
When a uncertain whisper becomes a certain voice, when promises turn into actions, pain into empathy and hatred to love. Then we truly know we are evolving...πŸ’• . . I'm thankful for many things but today I am thankful for those with the courage to use their voice. . . For those who have endured pain, for those who feel crippled by anxiety or depression, those who are battling inner demons, life long health issues, who have been through traumatic experiences. . . I am thankful for all those who have gone through it all and then find the courage to raise their voice and speak. Whether it be to fight for change, to convict another, to share their valuable knowledge or to be a support for others. . . To all those who have seen rock bottom and then have used that moment in their lives to speak up and share their truths, wisdom and support. I thank you for making this World a better place and for showing others that they are not alone. πŸ’•

Trust is the key to open up the World...πŸ’• . . To trust in ourselves, our abilities, in our instincts. To trust others, in love and in friendship. To put trust in strangers. . . Many things wouldn't have happened if I didn't have trust and many things wouldn't have happened if I didn't trust my gut instinct... . . I definitely wouldn't be here right now, embarking on the most exciting time of my life so far, if I hadn't of trusted my gut instinct, my abilities, those people around me and the strangers that I put trust in to get me here...πŸ˜πŸ’• . What or who did you put trust in that changed your life for the better? ❀

Who else has vivid dreams? β˜„ . . I was in the Maldives last night, swimming in the clear blue waters with the fish, watching the sunset and eating amazing food. . . I woke up back to reality though, where I am still hungover from only drinking a bottle of wine 2 days ago and definitely not in the Maldives. I tried closing my eyes again to slip back into the same dream but instead I dreamt that I was McDonalds arguing about the price of a milkshake...πŸ™„

Yesterday I had a bad day. . Nothing serious but my mood plummeted by mid afternoon. You see, I work in this crazy online space and recently, it seems to have taken it's toll on me. . I open my feed and all I see are the exact same photos, just from different people. This platform used to inspire me but now I feel like I'm surrounded by robots so brainwashed by Instagram that even themselves have forgotten who they are. . I feel so disconnected from it all. Today I woke up and realised something though, I realised that I have a choice as to what and who I surround myself with. I just need to cut out the negativity, the uninspiring and inauthentic. . I'm changing my space on here, I'm recalibrating, altering my online feng shui and just filling my feed with people whom I believe are sharing content from their heart and soul, with a desire to inspire...πŸ’• . I will not continue to praise the mundane and unoriginal but pour my love into those who are looking for more than just likes and followers...β˜„ . Words & thoughts inspired by the lovely @saltsandandsmoothies recent post. 🌻

We're here for a good time, not a long time..πŸ’• . We finally have dates and a location for our wedding! Trying to organise people from Argentina and the UK to gather in Spain was proving difficult but we finally did it! . We have chosen a villa in Andalusia, Spain for May 2019! I have a wedding blog post up now with more details! Link in bio 😘😘 . . #Islaholbox#holbox#weddingplanning#weddingabroad#mexico#spain#thewanderingtourist#tropicalvibes#wedding

Magic happens in the most unlikely places...β˜„ . The other day I went to retake some photos I wasn't 100% happy with, only to find the specific location I shot in previously was no longer there. . Instead of walking all the way back I decided to stay there a little while longer and I'm so happy that I did. . That evening I encountered the most beautiful beach wedding, watched the local fisherman fish, saw giant rays playing near the shore and I got to witness this beautiful sunset. . Today I'm grateful for these unexpected moments that create lifelong memories...πŸ’• . . #gltlove#happiness#theeverygirl#dametraveler#shewhowanders#travellist#dametraveler#islaholbox#globalwanderer#holbox#beachvibes#mexico#thewanderingtourist

πŸ“ Isla Holbox, Mexico. . This slice of paradise is in the Quintana Roo region of Mexico. It's sandy streets, colourful houses and beautiful greeny blue water make it a dream destination. πŸ’• . Palm trees line the off white sandy beaches, small huts open as taquerias and you will find only golf carts and bicycles roaming the sandy streets. 🌴 . This place holds a dear place in my heart and I hope one day you get to see it too. 😊 . #Islaholbox#welcometoholbox#holbox#quintanaroo#condenasttraveller#thewanderingtourist#destination_wow#cancun

Feeling lucky to be living here in paradise...🌴 . Sometimes I really have to remind myself that when things go pear shaped. . We've out of the blue been given a months notice to leave our apartment here, even though they told us we could have it for another year and finding a place to live here is HARD. . Also since AirBnb became so popular, it's made the situation worse as rentals are driving out people like us to rent that property on AirBnb to tourists instead. . So please just think twice about where you choose to stay on your next travels. ❀ . . #welcometoholbox#holbox#airbnb#beachvibes#thewanderingtourist#condenasttraveller#visitmexico

Happiness is infectious...πŸ’• . (Re-uploading after my caption was deleted..?) . I started my Instagram journey over 4 years ago now. I never intended to grow a "following" but loved the community that started to grow with me over time and decided to spend time and love into creating my blog. . I've seen people overtake me, some very deservingly and some who unfortunately let sheer greed and impatience influence them to succeed and grow in an inauthentic way. . I'm not bitter but I am confused. This space for me is still about the community I have but I feel like there is so much toxicity within this platform. So much untruth. . A large part is the fault of @instagram but it also lies within those few people who fuel Instagram's fire. . The follow/unfollowers, the bots, the insincere comments...I could go on. I'm fighting against something that is much bigger than little old me, my photos and my words. . To many who do not use this platform for business, then the above words may fall on deaf ears but I want to reach out to everyone... . Don't let social media define you or change you. Whether you feel like your social life doesn't compare to others, that your wardrobe, your hair, career, life path, photos or social status doesn't compare. . Then remember what you see in photos is not a true reflection of someone's life. Remember who YOU are, why you are special. Support others in their goals and dreams, create a positive space around you. . Let's be in this together, not apart. πŸ’• . #islaholbox#mexico#tropicalvibes#spreadlove#beyou

A smile is the most powerful tool you own..πŸ’• . I was talking to a friend the other day about things we were told as children that weren't true but we believed for way longer into our adult lives than we should of done...πŸ˜‚ . I was told when I was younger that waves in the ocean were caused by angry sharks. I obviously wasn't too old until I realised that wasn't true but I did believe it for a while! . My mum also believed that sausages came out of pigs bums until atleast her 20's! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š . What were you told as a child that you believed for a while? πŸ˜‹
