✨ Do you leave enough space for yourself?⁣ ⁣ ✈️ When you’re traveling with a loved one, family or friends its important to leave some space for yourself.⁣ ⁣ 🚀 By space I mean room to be alone, to relax, to give your opinion and to breathe.⁣ ⁣ 🚶🏼‍♀️As a solo traveler all I have space for is myself, I choose to interact or be a hermit if I want to. ⁣ ⁣ ⚖️ What I learned on this trip with my friends is to ask for time alone and how to find balance so everyone could be happy!⁣ ⁣ 📌 Do you find it hard to balance time alone? Or are you a pro? ↡⁣⁣ . . . . . . . #wanderlusts#nomadgirls#nomadstories#journeyofgirls#carryononly#mexciovacation#sheisnotlost#travelblogger#slowtravel#adventuretravel#discoverunder3k#teamkaptainkenny#traveltips#solofemaletraveller#solotravelgirl#solobackpacker#tulumtravel#mexico🇲🇽

📌Are you an overpacker?⁣ 🎒 Here are some tips to help keep your bag light! ⁣ ⁣ • Pack three pairs of shoes MAX and one of them should be comfortable walking shoes 👟 ⁣ • Pack your shoes toe to heel, and fill them with your socks/undies/small items to save space.⁣ • Wear layers and your heaviest clothing on the plane to avoid an overweight bag 💼 ⁣ • Roll your clothes instead of folding them⁣ • Carry a tote bag as your “personal item” and fill it with the crap you couldn’t fit in your carry on 😈 ⁣ AND THE BIG ONE:⁣ ⁣ • Only pack clothes that you love, make you feel like a boss 💪🏻, are comfortable and are versatile! You don’t want to pack for a vacation and find out when you get there you didn’t pack things you actually wanted to wear 🤷🏻‍♀️ And you definitely don’t want all your vacation pics to be of you in over size t-shirts. Find a happy medium 😀⁣ This might take some closet reworking to find versatile pieces you can mix and match AND feel good on your body, but trust me it’s worth it.👌🏻⁣ ⁣ (Also Sarongs are excellent at being versatile and I’m never wearing anything else all summer) . . . . . . . #sustainabletravel#responsibletourism#ethicaltravel#wanderlusts#nomadgirls#nomadstories#wearetravelgirls#carryononly#treadedtravels#sheisnotlost#travelblogger#teamkaptainkenny#traveltips#solofemaletravel#travelsolo#solotravelgirl#solobackpacking#mexico🇲🇽#tulum#advancedselfie

The Tulum Ruins were a marvel to see! 😍⁣ ⁣ We had the opportunity to visit both the Tulum Ruins and Chichen Itza while visiting Mexico 🇲🇽⁣ ⁣ I found Chichen Itza to be way too crowded and hot with too many vendors practically screaming at you to come buy stuff.

You should be able to touch the coals without burning yourself before you leave (or at least see no steam or smoke 💨)⁣⁣ • All you smokers DO NOT flick your damn cigarette butts into the woods.⁣⁣ • While having a camp fire 🔥 make sure it’s contained with a circle of rocks and do not make one close to trees, tents or dry brush.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Ok I’m done being Smokey the bear 🐻 for today.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣. . . . . . . #backpackerlife#teamkaptainkenny#travelcommunity#travelandescape#backpackwithme#grammableplaces#igtravelworld#hikersofinstagram#neverstopexploring#travellershouts#wearethewild#takemebackpacking#travelislove#exploretheearth#adventurejunkie#wildernessculture#createyourtrail#tkkcanada#sustainabletravel#campingtips#camping#naturelovers#forestphotography

🌍 How do you reduce plastic waste when you’re traveling? Is it something you take into consideration? ⁣ ⁣ ♻️ Don’t worry if it’s not something you’ve thought much about... everyone starts somewhere!⁣ ⁣ ✨ Here are some easy tips to reduce waste that aren’t going to break your bank:⁣ ⁣ • Bring an empty reuseable waterbottle with you to the airport to fill up after you pass security. ✈️ 💦⁣ • Reuse your hotel or hostel towels by hanging them back up to dry and keep the “do not enter sign” on your door to deter housekeeping until you leave 🧖🏼‍♀️⁣ •Avoid buying groceries that are packaged in plastic when possible 🍎⁣ • Look for local businesses and restaurants to support with your 💵. Ask where your souvenirs are coming from (or look on the product)⁣ • If you’re visiting a beach or park pick up 3 for the sea 🌊 ⁣ ⁣ ✨ All of these small things really make a difference and won’t cost you a cent! Just an extra minute or two of brain power 🧠👌🏻⁣ . . . . . . . #backpackerlife#teamkaptainkenny#travelcommunity#travelandescape#backpackwithme#grammableplaces#thruhike#hikersofinstagram#neverstopexploring#peoplewhohike#wearethewild#takemebackpacking#getlostclub#exploretheearth#adventurejunkie#wildernessculture#createyourtrail#tkkcanada#sustainabletravel#ecofriendlytips#greentravel

✨ DID YOU KNOW ....⁣ Only 35% of textiles collected through H&Ms take back program is actually recycled? ♻️ ⁣ ⁣ Most of it actually ends up in the landfill anyways! Crazy isn’t it? ⁣ ⁣ 👚 Now I’m feeling the ultimate guilt for already having donated so many textiles through that program 😔 There’s no sense feeling bad about it though, all we can do is learn and do better next time! ⁣ ✨ Here are some alternative options for unuseable (un-donateable) clothes and textiles ⬇️⁣ • Collect lots in a bag and post it on online selling platforms as “free” many sewers would be happy to have it! 🧵⁣ • See if you can get crafty with it yourself! Learn a thing or two from YouTube University 🎥⁣ • See if there’s a zero waste group for your city and ask them if they know what can be done with it⁣ • Turn clothes into rags for cleaning 🧹 ⁣ ⁣ ♻️ Please please think before you toss in the garbage and do your research before donating! ⁣ ⁣ 🌍 We all need to take responsibility for the things we choose to include in our lives (purchases)🛍. Use and care for our things so they last us longer! 💪🏻 and DISPOSE of them properly. ⁣ ⁣ That’s all for today. 🌈 ✨ ⁣ . . . . . . #backpackerlife#teamkaptainkenny#letsflyawayto#findherthere#wearetravelgirls#dametraveler#solobackpacker#solotrip#leftrightthere#mytravelstory#treadedtravels#girlslovetravel#girlsborntotravel#travelcommunity#travelandescape#girlsabroad#backpackwithme#tkkcanada#advancedselfie#sustainabletravel#sustainableliving#fuckfastfashion#ecowarrior
