First trip ever to Paris! I was hopeful originally to share this trip with a special someone but they chose not to come. So I took what would be my first trip to Europe, as a solo traveler. I was quite ok with it and actually quite looked forward to it. I’ve traveled alone a good few times in my life and each time it is more empowering and thought provoking. As I mature and grow as a human, the more and more I enjoy my life and the here and now vs looking back at yesterday or longing for tomorrow. As a single woman for several years now, I have come to really enjoy my own company and traveling on my own is a delight. As a business owner I have the luxury of being able to make my own schedule and as a writer and an iPhone photographer I have the blessing of being able to capture and share my travels. Up until now I have just used my personal page to share but I thought it might be fun and inspiring to create a page of just my solo travels and share my words and my photos. I hope you will find inspiration and joy! #soulotraveler#solo#solotravels#paris#france#eiffeltower#love#travel#beautifulworld#getoutandtravel#europeanvacation#carpeDEEm#writer#poet#photography#beauty
Five temples in one day. Really amazing to see. I was fascinated by the intricacies of the carvings and the amount of restoration completed and still to be done! Very impressive to think these were built in 9th through 12th century, and how advanced for their time! #travelcambodia#angkorwattemple#unescoworldheritagesite#siemreap
Underground caves with crystal waters...Bats soar above you as Turtles and multiple schools of fish swim past...quite the adventure, no?

Guys!!! I've found the secret to happiness in Prague and it is... A Beer Spa! For an hour you soak in the main ingredients that make up beer, set at 36 degrees and bubbling and have unlimited use of the beer tap next to you to then have a masseur loosen up any problem areas to then finish up with a 20 minute lay down in a bed with electric blankets and the fuzziest quilts you can only dream of. By far one of the most unique experiences I attempted on purpose and by God, my skin, my neck/head and mentality hadn't been as clear as it is now thanks to it. #beer#spa#beerspa#bernardsbeerspa#lager#massage#relaxation#holidays#solotravels#prague
This’s a letter from me to you!
This’s an open conversation from my soul to yours. This’s a raw bunch of feelings from my heart to yours. I know, I know how you struggle through every day. I know, the battles you have fought and the scars they have left behind. I know, how you pick yourself up at times only to be broken behind. I might not have been there but I have seen or heard you at the times when you were at your most vulnerable. I wasn’t there to stop you or told you otherwise but I know there were times when your brain told you to end it all and your heart told you to let it go. I understand how you cried yourself to sleep every night. I feel the pain you felt when you were alone and had no one to resort to. This is a letter from me to every other person who lives and breathes through the complexity of this life. This is an open conversation from my heart to the heart of all those who have been broken to the extent that they felt their entire existence tearing to the core.
If you’ve lived through it, you can live through anything else. Your belief, your strength and courage are something admirable. You might feel alone, broken or coward at times, but never allow these feelings to overshadow your true existence. It’s okay to be vulnerable, but surviving these situations is the sign of courage and not weakness. You are a beacon of hope for a lot of people out there. You don’t know that now and you might never believe it, but I look up to you. Because, it is due to the people like you, I survived through the worsts of my time.
Have you ever wondered why we tell people to pray when the stars fall out of the sky? Just wonder and ponder over it! It leaves the comfort and its happy place, but still leaves behind a trail of light for us to pray upon. You are the same. You might not believe it now, but YOU ARE THE SAME! You are who we take strength and inspiration from. Stay the same.

Did you know that when I started traveling 5 years ago I was absolutely TERRIFIED of traveling alone??
In order to DESTROY my fear I decided to do something quite crazy.....shaking uncontrollably, I stood alone next to the highway, with the plan to travel 6 months, only by means of hitchhiking & Couchsurfing, starting in Morocco.
It was a wild 6 months (I hitched more than 200 different cars & stayed with over 100 strangers in their home) and I met so many interesting people and luckily nothing happened to me...This is DEF not my style of traveling now, but during that time I TOTALLY overcame my fear of solo traveling and found strength through the experience! Would you solo travel across the world?

¿Sabes que cuando comencé a viajar, hace 5 años, estaba absolutamente ATERRADA por viajar sola?
Para SUPERAR mi miedo, decidí hacer algo bastante loco... Me puse al lado de la carretera, con el plan de viajar durante 6 meses, solo mediante autoestop y Couchsurfing. .
Comenzé en Marruecos y recorrí, solo por tierra, 25 países. .
Fueron 6 meses salvajes (hice autostop con más de 200 coches y me alojé en la casa de más de 100 desconocidos). .
Conocí a mucha gente interesante y, afortunadamente, no me pasó nada...
Así no es como viajo ahora. Pero, durante esa aventura, superé TOTALMENTE mi miedo a viajar sola y encontré mi fuerza interior a través de la experiencia!.
¿Viajarías solo por el mundo?
¿Qué países te daría más miedo visitar?

❤️💝 LOVE IS IN MY AIR 💝❤️
The fact of having a relationship was really foreign to me since my early planning stage of traveling the world to change my entire life, find myself and chase my dreams. 😅 Let’s keep it very basic: traveling full-time, not staying long in one place, big dreams, no tolerance for drama. 🤷♂️ The chances of finding someone under those circumstances is non-existent. I always told myself - stay on track and don’t get distracted by anything, especially not any woman. 🤣 Of course there was a slight interest in dating but I never let it happen, because it never felt completely right. And only having „fun“ was never an option for me. You remember - no drama. 🤦♂️🤣
On my inspirational journey I’ve learned that loving yourself is the first big step to become successful and find happiness. And to love yourself is also the fundamental part of love, because if you don’t love yourself, how could you truly love someone else? It’s impossible. ☝️ Loving yourself is a very rare thing only a few people can really handle, but it is the key to real happiness. Put yourself first - also in a relationship. Think about it, if you are not happy, how could you make people around you happy? You are your no.1, always. 👏🤗
There is this quote that says, „Don’t chase love. Love will find you when you are ready.“ 💘 It’s so true and I believe this 100%. And you may know it, I also „created“ my dream woman on my visionboard in the category LOVE together with all my dreams and goals. I wrote down how she has to be in detail, especially on character and way of thinking. When you manifest your thoughts, and believe in the universe, it will take care of that. It just need its time. ⏰
And this time has come now, damn, it REALLY got me, I’m in love! 😍🙉 Believe it or not, I can’t even believe it myself, but there is someone, and she is like 99% on how I described it on my visionboard. 😱 It’s really weird, the whole story is crazy and unique, but it’s the beginning of something very special. She is very special, just everything❗️ And definitely the best gift from the universe in 2019. 💝😘 to be continued...
Happy Valentines Day everyone! ❤️
