📚#BookNerdAlert Doesn’t this Reading Cabinet from Rio give you major Hogwarts vibes?? I honestly expected to see Hermione sitting in the corner. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Asunción: • HI: a good ol’ fashioned 2 hour long facetime with @maggiemckellar1 - it can be so hard to keep in touch with friends and family while traveling but we laughed the whole time, she gave me some good advice and now I’m looking forward to reuniting in person soon even more! • LO: budget airline woes X budget booking site woes. What started as an intended 5 min online check in for my flight to La Paz today ended up taking hours and costing me an extra $250 (so much for that $150 I saved on my entry visa). Long story short my budget airline Amaszonas cancelled my flights after I booked them. Tripsta, the budget website I booked through, has apparently gone out of business so I never received any notification from them until I tried to check in and the flights no longer existed. They had managed to transfer me to new flights (without letting me know) but in completely the wrong order and over 2 days (VVI-LPB followed by ASU-VVI the next morning... more like WTF-seriously WTF). The important thing is that hopefully all is sorted and I’m La Paz bound today but man I hate those sketchy booking companies. Try to avoid them but choices can be limited off the beaten path. #kellyisnotlostinbrazil#🇧🇷 . . . . #igersbrasilia#visitbrazil#visitrio#loverio#theprettycities#welltraveled#iamatraveler#traveldeeper#theeverygirltravels#flashesofdelight#travelstoke#travelwithfathom#elledecor#ilikebigbooksandicannotlie#bookclub#whattoread#culturetripbooks#bookshop#booksbooksbooks#readingcorner#cntraveler#goopgo#ongooglemaps#whattoread#librarylove#bookheaven#booknerds

🌿 Rio: brunch, but make it jungle. After a delayed flight last night I’ve arrived in country 109! Hola Paraguay! And what a relief to be back in a spanish speaking country. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo traveling from Rio to Asunción (border control special): • LO: as I officially exited Brazil yesterday at Sao Paulo airport it seemed to be taking ages to process my passport. Then the agent said “just a moment please” and rushed off with my passport to... the federal police office! I quickly racked my brain trying to identify any possible reason for my arrest warrant to be issued in the last 2 weeks (for the record I did NOT help @debsthomas99 steal a pineapple samba costume). Finally he returned to tell me “sorry my passport scanner is broken, I needed to use theirs” and then waved me through. • HI: arrived in Paraguay prepared to pay the $150 USD cash on arrival visa. Only to be waved right through! No fee. No questions either in case it was a mistake. But $150 USD buys a whole lotta G&Ts. Anyone remember that Ikea sale commercial “Start the car!!! Start the car!!!”? Basically me leaving both border controls yesterday. #kellyisnotlostinbrazil#🇧🇷. . . . . #eatpretty#eatincolor#jungalow#plantsplantsplants#caffeinecouture#barsofinstagram#theprettycities#onthetable#carbsarelife#tileporn#pursuepretty#ihavethisthingwithtiles#howlovely#whatsforbreakfast#brunchlife#suitcasetravels#designhotels#interiorlover#designinspo#wheretofindme#postitfortheaesthetic#explorebrazil#abmlifeiscolorful#igersbrasilia#colourfull#travelerinbrazil#greenhouselife#exposedbrick

🧺 Hello Friday! One of my last few Fridays of not working. Planning to spend it outside in this chair at @mamashelter Rio with a caipirinha in one hand and my kindle in the other (currently reading Patagonian Road). Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Rio: • HI: a big stack of clean laundry was returned from the local lavenderia which means I have clean and dry (crazy humid here) and yummy smelling clothes once again. I just want to pull a Thanksgiving Joey and wear them all at once. • LO: more uber troubles. I actually had a driver pull over to pick me up then change his mind when I tried to open the door, drove away and cancelled the ride! Another driver rear-ended the car in front of him. Maybe I’ll just walk instead thanks. #kellyisnotlostinbrazil#🇧🇷 . . . . #mamashelterrio#dscolor#interiorlover#designinspo#explorebrazil#abmlifeiscolorful#igersbrasilia#colourfull#walltraveled#iamatraveler#traveldeeper#travelerinbrazil#theeverygirltravels#flashesofdelight#travelwithfathom#elledecor#ihavethisthingwithwindows#liveincolor#tileporn#windowsanddoors#windowtreatments#howlovely#weekendmood#primarycolors#suitcasetravels#designhotels#wheretofindme#postitfortheaesthetic

🤗 Hey Cristo, I agree, Rio is a babe and deserves a big hug. She especially looks good from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain through my caipirinha goggles. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo: • HI: some of my HIs are pretty pathetic and this one counts, although it truly was a Hi: I buckled down for some trip admin last night and got the final few weeks of my trip booked. Flights, tours, hotels, all of it. Nothing sucks more than being *that* girl on her laptop in the hotel bar but it needed to be done and now I can just cruise through my last few weeks. A second Hi is I found a really good citrus @tanqueraygin and tonic at the @santateresamgallery and am definitely feeling at less risk for scurvy today. • LO: Ubering in foreign countries. Generally a pretty smooth experience but yesterday I couldn’t find my driver and when I finally found him he proceeded to yell at me (in Portuguese) for 10 mins while I kept telling him “No portuguese” but that didn’t stop him. Passionate people these Brazilians but dude, I just need a ride up the hill so chill por favor. #kellyisnotlostinbrazil#🇧🇷 . . . . #igersbrasilia#brasil_nature#visitbrazil#visitrio#loverio#suitcasetravels#flashesofdelight#traveldeeper#passionpassport#livelocal#flytheflag#iamatraveler#mytinyatlas#travelerinbrazil#visitsouthamerica#travelsouthamerica#guardiantravelsnaps#searchwandercollect#athomeintheworld#hikingviews#mountaintop#drinkswithaview#sunsetcliffs#sundowner

🍊 Orange you glad I came back to Rio? I am. Last week was all about the iconic sights of Copacabana, Ipanema, Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer. Fresh back from Iguazu the next few days are all about the Santa Teresa neighbourhood: street art, leafy greens, old trams and cobblestones. More in my stories. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Rio: • HI: after a few weeks of traveling with groups I had my own room last night! I’ve been really lucky with roomies Fay & Em but nothing beats your own hotel room. • LO: except that said hotel room’s AC failed. So I opened the windows. And woke up to mozzie bites. After being so careful in the Amazon and Iguazu perhaps it’ll be Rio where I contract Zika?? #kellyisnotlostinbrazil#🇧🇷 . . . . #mamashelterrio#theprettycities#dscolor#interiorlover#designinspo#explorebrazil#abmlifeiscolorful#igersbrasilia#colourfull#walltraveled#iamatraveler#traveldeeper#travelerinbrazil#theeverygirltravels#flashesofdelight#travelwithfathom#elledecor#eatpretty#eatincolor#barsofinstagram#theprettycities#onthetable#howlovely#whatsforbreakfast#brunchlife#suitcasetravels#designhotels#wheretofindme#postitfortheaesthetic

💃🏻 Just a ballerina photo shoot in Paraty, nothing to see here. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Rio: • HI: the rain sort of held off and finally had a bit of a beach day. Copacabana, Ipanema, so iconic. • LO: there was a water issue at our hotel which meant all the toilets were broken from 9am-3pm. When I asked when it would be fixed the hotel staff was all 🤷🏻‍♀️ #kellyisnotlostinbrazil#🇧🇷 . . . . #theprettycities#dscolor#ihavethisthingwithwindows#tinydancer#ballerinas#womenwhotravel#dametraveler#wearetravelgirls#explorebrazil#abmlifeiscolorful#igersbrasilia#colourfull#walltraveled#iamatraveler#traveldeeper#travelerinbrazil#theeverygirltravels#flashesofdelight#doorsandwindows#travelwithfathom#elledecor#iwalkedthisstreet#windowtreatments#dancedancedance

🥞 Saturday morning, where are you brunching at? I’m back in Rio and off to hunt down an açai bowl. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Rio: • HI: we got to go to Samba School. I assumed this meant we’d be learning to samba but it actually turned out we were getting a backstage tour of one of the schools (aka clubs) that competes every year in Rio’s Carnaval. So great to satisfy my inner showgirl/revisit my former life (if you know, you know). More in stories. • LO: Rio service is soooooo slow. Need something fixed in your hotel room? Wait 90 mins. Need the bill at the restaurant? Ask 5 times and wait 45 mins. It’s cool to chill and all and embrace the Rio way but I’m gonna need some bridge capirihinas to help me get to that mental state. You feel? #kellyisnotlostincolombia#🇨🇴 . . . . #eatpretty#eatincolor#jungalow#plantsplantsplants#caffeinecouture#barsofinstagram#walltraveled#theprettycities#onthetable#carbsarelife#tileporn#pursuepretty#ihavethisthingwithtiles#howlovely#sweettoothforever#whatsforbreakfast#brunchlife#bogotá#visitcolombia#bogotacolombia#lovebogota#suitcasetravels#designhotels#interiorlover#designinspo#wheretofindme#postitfortheaesthetic

🍍Getting my 5-7 a día in Cartagena. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Paraty, Brazil: • HI: we finally got some proper sun in Brazil and went island hopping along the coast yesterday. Emerald green water, SUP time, floating in the water with drinks, seemingly free flow capirihinas, grilled fish lunch and... sea turtles! All in all my favourite day in Brazil so far. More in my stories. • LO: burn baby burn... we all fried to a crisp on the boat yesterday. Even more than the crispy grilled fish. Even with factor 50. *Might* have been because I spent 90% of my time in the water but still... #kellyisnotlostincolombia#🇨🇴 . . . . #theprettycities#dscolor#ihavethisthingwithdoors#pineappleexpress#carmenmiranda#womenwhotravel#dametraveler#wearetravelgirls#explorecolombia#abmlifeiscolorful#igerscolombia#colourfull#walltraveled#iamatraveler#traveldeeper#travelerincolombia#theeverygirltravels#flashesofdelight#doorsandwindows#travelwithfathom#elledecor#iwalkedthisstreet#windowtreatments#yellowisthenewblack#yellowaesthetic#fruity#PPColorStory

🌈 Cusco: where you can grab a @threemonkeyscoffee and drink it in this rainbow courtyard before bumping into an alpaca wearing pom poms on the street on the way out. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Rio de Janeiro: • LO: yesterday was meant to be an Ipanema beach day. But it rained, rained, rained all day long. • HI: with beach day cancelled I decided to head to the mall. Not my usual travel activity but my bag has mostly consisted of hiking gear and warmer clothes for the first month of this trip. Things should (🤞🏻) get sunnier and warmer from here so I picked up some beachy outfits and am ready to ditch the hiking boots for a few weeks at least. #kellyisnotlostinperu#🇵🇪 . . . . . #coffeeeee#coffeeshopvibes#coffeeshopsoftheworld#manmakecoffee#caffeinecouture#cafehopping#coffeewithaview#lattelove#wheretofindme#caffeineplease#picsworthsharing#exploreperu#madeinperu#cuscoperu#igerscusco#cafelover#cosycorner#iamatraveler#suitcasetravels#abmlifeiscolorful#colourfull#rainbowart#dsrainbow

🌀#TheWorldNeedsMoreSpiralAncientRuins I had no expectations for Moray but it was super cool. The Incas used it as a type of greenhouse to gradually acclimatise plants and crops to different altitudes. The Incas were basically geniuses. Unlike present day humans: you can no longer walk around the rings here because some gringo set up a tent and lit a campfire there one day and nearly burnt the whole place down. This is why we don’t deserve nice things. #kellyisnotlostinperu#🇵🇪 . . . . #picsworthsharing#peru#visitperu#experienceperu#madeinperu#suitcasetravels#flashesofdelight#traveldeeper#passionpassport#livelocal#flytheflag#iamatraveler#mytinyatlas#travelerinperu#visitsouthamerica#travelsouthamerica#guardiantravelsnaps#searchwandercollect#athomeintheworld#hikingviews#mountaintop#inca#incaseyoudidntknow

🧡 Olá from Brazil! I flew overnight from Colombia and have arrived in Rio. Excited to spend the next 2 weeks in Brazil but first, yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Bogotá: • HI: I definitely needed to transition from “Peru Hiking Girl” mode to “Brazil Beach Girl” and decided that a fresh pedicure would do just the trick. Not only did I stumble across a really nice little nail salon, I also ended up sitting down next to a girl from Toronto! Small world. • LO: was just finishing up a nice late lunch and and even nicer afternoon G&T when a drunk businessman at the next table casually leaned over and demonstrated how he would like to spank me. It was about 3pm in the afternoon. Ah the joys of traveling solo as a woman. Tempting but... no. #kellyisnotlostincolombia#🇨🇴 . . . . #theprettycities#dsfloral#explorecolombia#floralfix#worldinbloom#flowermarket#abmlifeiscolorful#igerscolombia#colourfull#walltraveled#iamatraveler#traveldeeper#theeverygirlblooms#travelerincolombia#theeverygirltravels#flashesofdelight#doorsandwindows#travelwithfathom#elledecor#dsfloral#iwalkedthisstreet#petalpower#underthefloralspell#windowtreatments#yellowisthenewblack#yellowaesthetic

⛰ The very first shot I took of Machu Picchu remains my favourite. Nothing compares to that very first glimpse. Truly otherworldly. Especially early in the morning when the mist is rising, rays of sun are piercing through the clouds and none of the fashion grammers have shown up yet with their designer ponchos on their hired alpacas. #kellyisnotlostinperu#🇵🇪 . . . . #picsworthsharing#peru#visitperu#experienceperu#madeinperu#suitcasetravels#flashesofdelight#traveldeeper#passionpassport#livelocal#flytheflag#iamatraveler#mytinyatlas#travelerinperu#visitsouthamerica#travelsouthamerica#guardiantravelsnaps#searchwandercollect#athomeintheworld#hikingviews#mountaintop

🌺 The flowers in Colombia are really something else. It’s absolutely pouring rain today in Bogotá (hey, someone’s gotta water these blooms) but secretly I couldn’t be happier. After a few weeks of non-stop travel I’m quite content to take a duvet day and catch up on netflix. Yesterday’s Hi/Lo from Cartagena: • HI: I zipped all around the historic centre of Cartagena yesterday which was so photogenic. But when the afternoon heat became too much I happily took refuge in the hotel pool. And it was heaven. • LO: hard to choose so I’ll post both. First, I opened my bag to discover than airport security had searched it (messily), left compartments open and tried to zip up one section over a pair of my underwear. Zipper stuck, underwear ruined, bag total chaos. Second, I walked out of the shower of my Cartagena hotel in front of what I had thought was a concealed balcony only to make eye contact with a window cleaner. So there you have it, privacy while traveling doesn’t seen to exist although my second Lo was probably the window cleaner’s Hi. You’re welcome. #kellyisnotlostincolombia#🇨🇴 . . . . #theprettycities#dsfloral#explorecolombia#floralfix#worldinbloom#flowermarket#abmlifeiscolorful#igerscolombia#colourfull#welltraveled#iamatraveler#traveldeeper#theeverygirlblooms#theeverygirltravels#flashesofdelight#travelstoke#travelwithfathom#elledecor#dsfloral#iwalkedthisstreet#petalpower#underthefloralspell#windowtreatments
