Hope Morris (@travelinghope) — From day trips to long excursions, life always has an adventure in store. And I want to experience as many as I can.

"Yeah, my life is real great, feelin well on my way to my dreams coming true, and I'm gettin to do it with you." -Judah & The Lion ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Since this year started, I’ve been surprised at how close I’ve gotten to many people I’ve had around me recently. I’m taking in every moment before the next chapter of my life. On top of that, my tickets to Peru have been booked, and my trip is officially a month away. This time of my life is very busy, full of new memories and experiences, big laughs and self discovery. I’m really liking life right now, and I’m glad I know I’m in the good old days before they’re gone. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#alpine#adventuring#blueridge#creation#daytrip#exploring#explore#hiking#foothillsparkway#itravel#journey#destination#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#smokymountains#travel#travelgram#view#wanderlust#winter#tennessee#goodolddays#traveling

"The world is wide, life is short, and I wanna make some memories." -Mamma Mia 2 Crisfield//MD ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It’s been feeling like spring, and it’s nice to have the weather reflecting my mood. This year is already off to a great start. Rehearsals for a play I’m in start tonight, I’ll have four opportunities to direct short scenes within the next few months, and I get to go to Peru in a little over a month. Creativity and travel all at the same time. Yeah, I’m liking 2019 already. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#bay#cheasapeakebay#creation#daytrip#destination#eveninglight#explore#exploration#horizon#island#itravel#journey#landscape#mothernature#nature#ocean#opensky#sea#travel#travelgram#view#water#wanderlust#winter#maryland#newyear

Exploring old barns with new friends and taking cute pictures before a bonfire...yeah, this is why I love fall. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Life has been so crazy these past couple months that I've been moving too fast to take a lot of pictures. But I'm really not complaining because it's been some of my favorite months of the year. I got to be in the play version of my favorite book, met some of my new favorite people, spent Thanksgiving with my family, and am currently performing in a short scene for a showcase before heading home for the holidays. This year is ending a lot better than it started, and next year is looking pretty good, too. I'll be in another play, explore with more friends, and travel to Peru in February and March. And that's just the first part of the year. I can't wait to see what else the future holds, so here's to another year of living life to the fullest. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#alpine#barn#building#bush#creation#daytrip#eveninglight#explore#exploring#door#autumn#destination#hiking#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#rustic#fall#travel#travelgram#view#wanderlust#bonfire

"It is the courage to continue that counts." -Winston Churchill Gatlinburg//TN ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Last weekend, I enjoyed this view with some of the best people I know, and this weekend, I got to be at home with my family. It's finally feeling like fall, Thanksgiving is a few weeks away, and I'm savoring every moment with the people who make life even more beautiful. So, hello, Autumn. Keep the fun coming. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#alpine#adventuring#creation#daytrip#exploring#explore#forest#hiking#itravel#journey#destination#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#rainbow#storm#rain#clouds#travel#travelgram#view#wanderlust#tennessee#gatlinburg#fall#autumn

Looking back on summer like... Cayos Cuchinos//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'll miss weather and adventures like this, but I'll be honest and say that not sweating every day and wearing jeans again isn't too shabby. Also, colorful leaves are a plus, too. So, Autumn, I guess I'm ready for ya. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#beautifuldestinations#beach#blue#creation#cayoscuchinos#destination#daytrip#explore#exploration#itravel#journey#landscape#islands#mothernature#nature#ocean#honduras#sand#travel#travelgram#view#summer#wanderlust#snorkeling#paradise

"Good things come to those who GO." -Delta Airlines La Lucha//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just applied for a trip to Peru in the spring, and if I get to go I'll be so happy to get to practice my Spanish in that kind of setting again. Also, today I played a game on my phone to learn Spanish, and I used the Honduran dialect for a verb and got the question wrong. So there's that ironic twist for the day. Overall, I still accidentally do things the way I did them in Honduras and find my brain trying to translate English to Spanish without me even realizing it. And my purpose for this post? I guess I still have too many pics that I want everyone to see...oh and I guess it's a good reminder that I'm not nearly where I used to be with the Spanish language, and I'm very thankful for that. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #adventure#all_shots#adventuring#alpine#creation#destination#explore#exploring#hiking#honduras#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#summer#junglehospital#healthhopehealing#travel#travelgram#lalucha#view#wanderlust#wegotothem#jungle#tropical#rainforest

"Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about." -Unknown Las Minas//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ These past few weeks have kept me insanely busy with so many amazing things, and it will only get worse. But despite all the chaos, there is still not one day that goes by that I don't think of this place. Don't get me wrong, being back is awesome, but the jungle won't let me go. I mean, look at this place! I felt like we were in Jurassic World, and a dinosaur was going to walk out of the trees any second. This particular picture was taken on our first day in Las Minas, a village we'd be at for a couple days doing clinics, seeing the area, and hanging with the locals. We ate homemade Honduran food, got milk straight from the cow for our coffee, and slept in hammocks in the nearby clinic. I wanted to stay longer. But now I'm back, and I'm finding myself again after the adventure of a lifetime changed me forever. It's weird but wonderful, and honestly, I love it. Summer is almost over, and autumn is right around the corner. New season, new me. And I'm proud to say that I'll always have a part of the summertime jungle inside me. 🇭🇳 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #adventure#all_shots#adventuring#alpine#creation#destination#explore#exploration#honduras#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#jungle#mothernature#nature#tropical#summer#travelgram#travel#view#jurrasicworld#wanderlust#homesick#healthhopehealing#wegotothem#healinghands

"Keep your tongue. Keep your mind. Keep humble. Start your life in the middle of the jungle." -Noah Kahan ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I never thought I'd miss waking up early, but hikes like this make even that possible. It's weird to think about some of the things I miss like no AC, dirt roads, and geckos all over the place. Then again, with views like these, it's not that hard to see why. Getting back into the swing of everyday left has kept me very busy, but I'm thankful for this next chapter as it brings me closer to my dreams becoming reality. Let's do this thing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#alpine#creation#destination#explore#exploring#hiking#itravel#journey#jungle#junglelife#landscape#mountains#nature#summer#summerbreak#travel#travelgram#view#wanderlust#water#honduras#river#junglehospital#healthhopehealing#internship#healinghandsglobal#wegotothem

Los niños de San Luis. San Luis//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I like this picture because the kids were completely unaware that I was taking it. After one of the steepest hikes that we take teams on, we set up in the village church to do both a medical brigade and an educational one. We gathered up almost all the local students and sat them on the front row. Yep, that's all of them in the picture. Utilizing the skills of our team, we split up into three groups. We taught these children why it's important to wash their hands, brush their teeth, and eat healthy including some tips on how to do those things properly. We taught them dances and gave out prizes if they could answer questions about the lessons. We even got some of the parents involved in the fun. And I think it's pretty obvious from their faces that the kids were enthralled. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#creation#destination#explore#exploring#friends#amigos#children#itravel#journey#love#learning#kids#niños#students#junglehospital#healthhopehealing#wegotothem#people#honduras#travel#travelgram#teaching#wanderlust#estudiantes#candid

"Suddenly, it all seems like a blurry dream, but I was there. Wide awake, I lived it all." -Hanne Hukkelberg ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After sleeping in, which still means waking up relatively early for us, we piled on the bus and headed down the mountain to the local jungle resort. For hours we swam in the infinity pool, played ping pong, and relaxed in the sun. We had local fruit juices with our lunch and had a little more time afterwards to get the rest of our swimming in. The sun, the water, and the view made for one happy and relaxing day. Not to mention the people I spent it with are pretty top notch too. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #adventure#adventuring#all_shots#alpine#beautifuldestinations#creation#destination#explore#exploring#honduras#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#pool#summer#summerbreak#travel#travelgram#view#wanderlust#junglehospital#healthhopehealing#junglefam#jungle#rainforest#tropical

First day back in the States after living 11 weeks in Honduras... I'm longing for my jungle home. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This view is from a hike to a small village called La Muralla. It was steep and hot but definitely one of my favorite hikes that I've been on. This village, until last year, had no teams come to them from any mission. They felt forgotten. But last year, the Jungle Hospital began brigades there, and I got to go on the second one in over ten years. We gave medical attention to the entire village and saw how the people worked together to help a young boy save his horse that had fallen off a cliff. (It was bruised but not broken or dead, thankfully.) I loved getting to see the heart of the people of these mountains, and I can't wait to go back. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#alpine#creation#destination#explore#exploring#honduras#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#nature#mothernature#junglehospital#junglefamily#healthhopehealing#summer#travel#travelgram#view#wanderlust#lamuralla#junglelife#medicalmission#brigade#hiking

Mis amigas, mi familia selva. Jungle Home//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Jiggy J-Team, We have one week left, and I'm not ready to leave this place that has become our home. We already cried enough last night, so I'll keep it short. Thanks for helping to make this summer the best of my life. This isn't the end, and I'm excited to see what our lives will look like ten years from now. So here's to our last week and being the best J-Team ever. *jungle call* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#beautifuldestinations#beach#blue#creation#cayoscochinos#destination#daytrip#explore#exploration#honduras#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#ocean#sea#sun#sand#travel#travelgram#view#water#wanderlust#junglehospital#jteam2018

We don't do many touristy things here, but when we do, we go zip lining and swimming in hot springs. La Ceiba//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ On our second day of our fun weekend away, we got to be tourists for an afternoon and go zip lining. The tour guides picked us up in their truck, and we used our slowly improving Spanish to chat on the ride there. We almost fell out of the truck multiple times because the road was so steep, but once we got to the top, we could see the ocean for miles. *cue Moana soundtrack* After some group pictures, we got geared up which included a helmet and gloves to use as brakes. We hiked up to the first of eighteen lines, and they asked who wanted to go first which I volunteered to do with no hesitation. Then, I was flying high above the trees with my adrenaline pumping and my heart happy. After that adventure, we were lead back into the jungle to the hot springs which, after an exciting but sweaty afternoon, sounded really nice. We swam in the natural hot tubs, had fresh fruit floated out to us on wooden trays, and got a red clay mud bath to top it off. It was definitely a day I won't soon forget. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#alpine#beautifuldestinations#creation#creek#daytrip#destination#explore#exploring#hiking#hotsprings#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#honduras#laceiba#canopytours#travel#travelgram#view#waterfall#wanderlust#ziplining

I have less than three weeks left in Honduras, but it'll take way longer than that to post all the pictures. La Ceiba//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This photo was taken at the beginning of a fun weekend away. We had been doing medical brigades all week, and after our last one at Las Mangas, we headed down the mountain to spend some time at the beach. When we got there, it was raining, but that didn't stop us from having a photo shoot and running around in the sand and waves. My brother and I acted like we were five, and my friends complimented my photography skills. It was my kind of day. Then that night, my team and I had deep conversations, and I got to explain in more detail to my brother what it is I'm doing here and why it is so important. I journaled by the beach in a hammock as crabs scurried around and the tide rolled in. As I fell asleep to the sound of mice in our ceiling tiles, I laughed to myself as I realized I wouldn't have it any other way. My heart feels at home, and I wish my time here wasn't coming to an end so soon. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #adventure#adventuring#all_shots#beautifuldestinations#creation#beach#caribbean#destination#eveninglight#explore#exploring#honduras#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#mothernature#ocean#sand#travel#travelgram#view#water#wanderlust#waves#laceiba#horizon

I've officially reached the halfway mark of my time here, and I wish life would slow down. Río Viejo//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This picture was taken the day after my brother got here to visit me. We stood in the back of a truck as we tried to make it to a nearby village before the rain started. We handed out flyers of the medical brigades we'd be doing in the following weeks and interacted with the locals. My brother was constantly asking questions to try and better understand the culture, and honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. It was the first time we got to travel internationally together, and I already miss him. But getting to share this place that has my heart with a member of my family means the world. Now, after a two week team, I think it's time to chill a bit. But really, do you ever just chill in a place this beautiful? Here's to even more adventures! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #all_shots#adventure#adventuring#alpine#bridge#beautifuldestinations#creation#destination#explore#exploring#hiking#itravel#journey#landscape#mountains#mothernature#nature#rioviejo#travel#travelgram#view#wanderlust#honduras#junglelife#junglehospital#hhg#wegotothem#internship#lifeabroad

¡Que bonita! But seriously, how cute is this baby? El Paraiso//Honduras ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I don't post many pictures of myself, but I thought this one summed up my first couple of weeks here in Honduras pretty well. After a week of settling in and learning the ropes, we had an awesome team come for a week, and this was our fourth medical brigade with them. After a short ride up the mountain, we hiked through the jungle to a tiny school where we set up for the whole village to come get medical care. I called the patients, held precious babies, and had the best coffee of my life. I was sweaty and dehydrated, but the fresh sugar cane, homemade baleadas, and welcoming locals more than made up for that. Here's to seven more weeks of this! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #adventure#adventuring#all_shots#baby#child#destination#creation#daytrip#explore#exploring#hiking#itravel#internship#jungle#junglehospital#healthhopehealing#journey#livelocal#mountains#mothernature#nature#travel#travelgram#honduras#elparaiso#view#wanderlust#wegotothem#summer
