sometimes, dark path can lead to beautiful destination. i remember me being scared to reach this place in the picture cos it is pitch dark n the only source of light to get there is using my torchlight, thinking that every step of the way i might encounter spider or snake... but when i passed the stairs it is beautiful! im so in awe hence i was in that position looking at the other side where theres a hole giving a little bit of sunlight and water dropping from top... speechless of the formation (this was before painting cave)
Owning your story is the bravest thing you’ll ever do.

I bought my 1st DSLR almost 10 years ago and I feel like I haven’t improved much over the last few years. But last year, I tried to find the editing style that I like so I switched back & forth a few times. Here’s one I took late last year on vacation and if you swipe, that’s the one I took back in 2015! ❤️ for left or right? 🙋🏻♀️ (We actually visited HKDI a few times when we were living there!) #tamsinhongkong
ENG 🇬🇧 ARRIVAL AND ACCOMMODATION, San Francisco, California.
RUS 🇷🇺 ПРИБЫТИЕ И ПРОЖИВАНИЕ, Сан Франциско, Калифорния. (🇷🇺 ниже)
🇬🇧 On arrival to San Francisco we took an Uber to our Airbnb in South Hayward. We decided to stay outside of San Fran to check out the convenience of the public transport (🤦♀️) and as it was a lot cheaper than the bay area.
We knew that traffic and parking was not ideal so we spent three days in San Francisco using public transport before renting a car for the road trip.
So.. the verdict is - STAY IN CITY CENTRE. It’s widely known that the majority drives in the US and there is a good reason for that - public transport is unreliable and expensive. There was no clear timetable for the busses - they would go every 40 mins or so, but not according to the official timetable or google maps. The trains were better, but busy and expensive. All in all we would pay $17 per person for return journey from Hayward to San Francisco, plus it took over an hour one way.
One morning we had to take a Lyft to the centre to make it on time for our Alcazar tour. We magically made it 5 minutes before departure as the traffic at the Oakland Bay Bridge was pretty bad!! Would not recommend driving in to the city either. 🙋♀️TIP: Stay in central San Francisco. You might be paying a bit more, but it’s a lot more convenient and will save you a massive amount of time. ———————————————————————
🇷🇺 По прибытии в Сан Франциско мы взяли Uber, который нас доставил в Южный Хайвурд, где мы сняли айрбнб на 3 ночи. Мы решили остаться за пределами Сан Франциско, чтобы на своём опыте понять всю безнадежность общественного транспорта(🤦♀️), а ещё, так было дешевле.
Нам не до конца была понятна ситуация с пробками и парковкой в центре города, поэтому мы проверили три дня в Сан Франциско, используя общественный транспорт. Только после арендовали машину для роад трипа по Калифорнии.
В итоге ... - ОСТАВАЙТЕСЬ В ЦЕНТРЕ ГОРОДА. Известно, что в Америке у всех свои машины, и это не только для понтов, другая причина - общественный транспорт ненадёжный и дорогой.
A friend and I were going to try @ramenisshin today but my tummy wouldn't be able to handle the 40 minutes wait today, not to mention to endure the -20°C cold ❄️
We then headed to a small Mexico joint across the street. Unexpectedly, I found they serve mole sauce (spiced chocolate sauce) there! Which is quite hard to find in the city. A dear friend of mine introduced me enchilada mole and I have since fell in love with it 😋
Have you been to Mexico? Shower me with all your favourite memories there while I dream of swimming in pool of mole sauce 😍
Where the Atlantic ocean meets the Caribbean sea, you will find the private paradise island of Calivigny. The palm-fringed Calivigny Island combines Balinese and French colonial architecture with luxury furnishings. Six beaches - all of them with gleaming blue waters and immaculate sandy shores. Can you guess how much cost a night here?? P.S. Billed as 'one of the world's most luxurious holiday resorts for the super-rich and famous. I heard that Morgan Freeman staid last week here..
No seriously, how are you traveling full time?! How are you affording it? How are you living this life? GUYS! Believe it or not, 𝗜 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗞! 👩🏼💻
I’m what you call a 𝘥𝘪𝘨𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘭 𝘯𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘥.
But what’s a digital nomad?
It’s a term that was created for an individual that is able to work outside the office, requiring only a laptop and wifi. Wikipedia explains a digital nomad as 𝘢 𝘵𝘺𝘱𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘦𝘤𝘩𝘯𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘯 𝘢 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘯𝘥, 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺, 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘢 𝘯𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘥𝘪𝘤 𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳. 𝘚𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘰𝘧𝘵𝘦𝘯 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬 𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘪𝘨𝘯 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴, 𝘤𝘰𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘦 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘴, 𝘱𝘶𝘣𝘭𝘪𝘤 𝘭𝘪𝘣𝘳𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴, 𝘤𝘰-𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘴𝘱𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘴, 𝘰𝘳 𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘷𝘦𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘭𝘦𝘴.
and guess what?! It can be you too!
Now a-days, so many of work in an office and barely communicate with our coworkers. We’re writing emails, calling into meetings, chatting on Slack, and Skyping our partners and clients. You start to wonder, can’t I do this ANYWHERE!? And the answer is YES you can.
A lot of companies are now allowing their employees to work from home to help serve a better work life balance. So, given the option, if you have the flexibility to work from home, you could choose to not have a “home” or have a bunch of homes all over the world. OR, if you’re someone like me and don’t want to give up your property, you can rent it and make an extra income while traveling. (I’ll share more about how to make this possible in a later post!)
Some digital nomads have 9-5 jobs where they clock in around the time zone their company is based out of, others are independent contractors, freelancers, entrepreneurs, or down right hustlers— like me. 🙋🏼♀️
Now I understand not everyone is in a position where they can work remotely, and I lucked out choosing a career that fits the bill, but whatever your profession, where there’s a will there’s usually always a way.
So what do you think, is this lifestyle for you? ✈️🌎
