You don't need to be in the travel biz to know that experiential lodgings — unconventional “hotels” that immerse guests in their natural environments — are gaining major traction. Safari-style tents, geodesic domes, and timber-shingled tree houses are multiplying before our eyes. Luxury hotel brands (Four Seasons, Belmond, Alila, and Rosewood, among others) are getting in the game, along with major investors. And destinations that were never before featured in the guidebooks (Aysén, Chile, anyone?!) are being put on the map, thanks to the versatility and light-touch construction of these experiential concepts. More ways we're seeing this "trend" evolve and unfold? Click the link in bio to find out. 📸 : An example of a Luxury Frontiers concept in a desert environment.
Vivir persiguiendo la magia, de aquellos instantes que se comparten y nos llenan el alma, con quien el corazón reclama, con quien ama porque sana. 🌊🐒🐒🖤

Magical mornings like these!❄️🌄
Bohinj, the largest permanent lake of Slovenia seemed like an endless sea yesterday with that dense fog cover over the valley! But today it's crisp and clear. With that thick snow cover, it is the perfect day to learn skiing⛷️ But guess I will save it for later because I wanna do it together with Arijit!😋
Planning to make myself an outdoorsy lunch and then mellow out in the mountains, finish off with some pending work at my own pace! 💻
Also gotta figure out how to cross Slovenian borders to get to Italy tomorrow. 🤔🗺️
One of our favourite parts of #RadLivin is hearing attendee’s dreams. There is something so magnetic about sharing something straight from your heart and being supported by an entire room of like-minded people. Love this photo of @abundant_ashley founder of @wetakenote sharing her idea to make a positive impact in the world. Limited spots available to #RadLivin2019. We would be sad if you missed out legend!
We’ve had thunder, rain, sun, showers but the @remarkables_market can take em all. This Saturday there with bells on. 9am-2pm. Those cinnamon rolls are MINE. 🍩☕️🍪🍫 #sponsoredpost

Ever planned your day and it turned out opposite but better than you could have ever dreamed of?
On this day I thought I'd wake up, re-watch the last episode of #DearWhitePeople (sidebar, what was that finale?!) then play some Harawa to kick start the day but I ended up meeting n lunching with Members of The County Assembly n as I took one for the gram, I could not help marvel at the fact that: We plan, God laughs!!
When you go to a big city or a capital you'll always gets fixated on seeing the iconic buildings, and areas where historical events happened. You'll find this more if you've never visited before, and obviously you want to check off all the main things people will see and do. But actually you'll often miss what a place is all about if you just stick to a check box list of things to see
This is Reykjavik believe it or not, I discovered that this place has so much art it's ridiculous! There are statues everywhere but tucked along the main street down alleyways in nooks and crannies, you'll see these beautiful art murals. So still visit the places you want to, but take the time to look deeper... you might find something even better

SI NO ESTÁS DISPUESTO A ARRIESGAR LO INUSUAL, TENDRÁS QUE CONFORMARTE CON LO USUAL. - Jim Rohn
El Que No Arriesga No Gana; Pierde.
Pierdes la oportunidad; la posibilidad de aprender; la capacidad para cambiar; de vencer tu miedo; pierdes la fortaleza que te permitiría arriesgarte la próxima vez.
Si te arriesgas, pase lo que pase SIEMPRE GANAS. No necesariamente aquello específico por lo que te arriesgaste, pero sí quizá algo aun más valioso: EXPERIENCIA, APRENDIZAJE, ORGULLO, SATISFACCIÓN, FUERZA INTERNA, ENTUSIASMO POR LA VIDA.
El éxito sólo es posible cuando te arriesgas.
La vida, para vivirla en plenitud, requiere que estés dispuesto a soltar la seguridad de lo que tienes para ir tras lo que quieres.
Arriesgarte o no arriesgarte no es la pregunta. Para una vida plena, no arriesgarte no es una opción.
Recuerda que cualquier cosa que tiene el potencial de conducirte a una mejor experiencia de vida encierra un riesgo.
Estar dispuesto a sonreír es arriesgarte a que otros te crean ridículo.
Estar dispuesto a decir algo es arriesgarte a que otros se opongan a tus ideas.
Estar dispuesto a ir tras tu sueño es arriesgarte a que otros te tachen de loco.
Estar dispuesto a cambiar es arriesgarte a que otros te rechacen.
Estar dispuesto a pedir es arriesgarte a que el otro te diga que no.
Estar dispuesto a amar es arriesgarte a no ser correspondido.
Pero no hay vida si no estás dispuesto a entregarte a ella.
El mayor riesgo no es intentarlo, sino estancarte. El mayor riesgo no es atreverte, sino luego arrepentirte.
Y TAL VEZ, EL MAYOR RIESGO DE TODOS, ES VIVIR SIN HABER VIVIDO.💚 #adidasterrex#allaboutadventures#wildernessnation#wanderwomeninc#hike#hiker#trailrunning#mountainside#mountaineering#outdoorwoman#allwilderness#mountainpeopleunite#outdoorlife#mountainneer#choosemountains#adventureladies#wildernessbabes#mountaingirls#bucketlistadventures#runningterritory#wildernessculture#alpineBabes#adventurenthusiasts#womenwhohike#catalunya
