I’m 27 today. I don’t really know what to make of that. But tonight, age is the last thing on my mind. Tonight, I’m however old I want to be. ~
In keeping with typical hostel fashion, those of us staying here a while, have banded together into a makeshift gang, to take on the city of Dubrovnik. I consider myself to be a fairly responsible traveler. I never partake too much in a foreign country, or with strangers. But these guys are my friends, and I trust them. We’ve been partying since we got here, with no signs of letting up. ~
Our hostel owners, two Croatian brothers roughly in their late 30s, seem to live to encourage debauchery among their guests. When they heard it was my birthday, they brought me a present. Their cousin makes a particularly potent, homemade Croatian moonshine known as Rakija. The deceptively innocent-looking, clear liquor can be upwards of 50% APV, and goes down like a combo of battery acid and diesel fuel (at least to my beer-swilling American palate.) ~
The first shot of the Rakija stunned my system. My whole body seized in rejection, and shuddered at the aftertaste. My friends’ faces contorted in similar looks of horror while the brothers laughed. Another shot, and the room started to spin. A third and... well... nothing! Next thing I recall was the sound of house music, the deep bass vibrating my chest. I was cold. When had I changed into a tank top? Bright lights spun up and down the walls and ceiling. They caught my eye, something was odd. The ceiling was very high, and make of stone. The walls were made of stone. The floor beneath my heels was marble... wait a minute, these aren’t my shoes!! I looked around for my friends and there they all were, drinking and dancing. My Spanish friend grabbed me and pulled me to the dance floor. “Where are we?!” I asked. “The castle!” She shouted above the music. She threw her arms in the air and began to spin. “Castle Revelin!” I yelled. Holy shit.. I blacked out and woke up in a castle! What a birthday. I threw my hands up and spun after her, forgetting everything in the world for a moment, except those lights on the magnificent stone ceiling.

🍀Just sitting in Dublin airport waiting for my flight and scrolling through all of my photos from this amazing trip! 🍀 .
It wasn't planned for my birthday but seeing as that's tomorrow I'm going to say it was a great birthday weekend! 🎉 We walked our socks off (I'll be wearing slippers in work tomorrow!!) And ticked off 20 different tourist attractions from the Irish pubs and distilleries, cathedrals and castle to the beautiful Cliffs of Moher on the opposite coast. Can't wait to share more but I need to recover for a few days 😂🍻 Ireland you've been amazing!! 🍀
Sunday is for self-care, no matter where you are in the world.
One of the best things about living abroad is that you’re encouraged to slow down. Whether you’re having a yoga break like @ninayoga in Montserrat or you’re spending time on the couch at home, it’s your choice to decide how you recharge for the week ahead.
So, how are you spending your Sunday? Let us know below! #LMDES
On this day a Queen was born!
There's nothing, I mean nothing that can compare to traveling the world with your mom. There's no gift that can top it and no better feeling than experiencing this beautiful world with your mom.
You have had the ULTIMATE influence over me and I wouldn't be who I am nor where I am without your constant prayers and sacrifice!
Now let's see how many more countries we can hit!!!! If you know this #passportgang VIP member, wish her a happy birthday!!!!!! #experiencesoverstuff#mymommy Charlene Rogers

Ever since I started to live with more intention, this is what my life has become.
My surroundings, my work, my friendships and the place I call home are all a direct result of doing the inner work to figure out what I want and putting together a plan to get there.
I could have never imagined that this is what life would look like but I'm so grateful it is and that it is just the beginning of my story. Over the next couple of days, I’ll be sharing more about how I got here and what it took... because you deserve to know more about the journey, not just the “end” result.
You can watch the rest of the video I dropped with @travelnoire in the link in my bio. #siempregirando
Summer travel vibes already?
We're loving the fact that @hannahbronfman was in Mallorca last summer and we want to know if you have any plans to visit Spain soon?
Port de Soller is one of our favorite beaches but the truth is, Spain is filled with breathtaking places whether it's the beach, mountains or a small town in the middle of nowhere.
Drop us a line below and let us know where you're planning on seeing OR somewhere in Spain you've always wanted to explore. #LMDES
