While on a short layover back in my hometown, I visited an ecological reserve I hadn't been to since the 3rd grade. Adventure is everywhere. It's easy to forget to look in your own backyard. (I also happen to be rocking the comfiest poncho outfit from @Backcountry!) Check out my outfit details on the blog-- LINK IN BIO!

So stoked to be one of the first to get their paws on the new #GoProFusion! For someone with zero experience in 360 photo and video, I can’t believe how easy it is. The @GoPro Overcapture app makes the entire process to edit and share 360 content possible from your phone in just a few taps.

Summer is in full swing in Cape Town and I’m a new proud member of the Botanical Society of South Africa (power to the plants! 🤓) Kirstenbosch is by far the most beautiful garden I’ve seen in the world!  FUN FACTS:
It’s part of the Cape Floral Kingdom (a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has the highest concentration of plant species on earth)! BYOB- you can bring your own food and drinks into the gardens for a fun in the sun picnic!  The gardens host outdoor concerts all summer!  It has a REALLY cool name! 😉

Last year I spent the 1st of the year at the Grand Canyon. I wanted to set a NYE resolution to spend the 1st day of ever year outdoors. But, this year, I binge watched 1.5 seasons of Game of Thrones and forgot to shower.  I tried to make up for it on day 3 of 2018, but I definitely didn’t hike to this view. And I went straight from sunset to a taco bar. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Life is all about balance, right? 🌮>🥗

  • 2017 was a dream 💙
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
This year was all about change. Not only did I make Cape Town home, I fell in love, grew my business with an incredible team, launched @TBAescapes travel tours and educational retreats and hosted nearly 50 women in Bali and South Africa.  This year’s growth, both personally and in business, has been overwhelming and incredible.  I traveled more than any other year in my life— flying nearly 150,000 miles and spending 542 hours on planes. 
I booked solo trips to scuba dive, I took countless girls getaways with my best friends, I slept in treehouses under the stars, and I sought out entirely new adventures (most of them here in Africa). I laughed, I cried, and, most importantly, I disconnected so that I could connect again.  Cheers to constantly seeking new adventures, discovering new destinations and, of course, to the new year!

  • Where will 2018 take you? 🗺🛵

I can’t believe it’s been 1 year since I relocated to Cape Town— and I haven’t looked back since! You’d think that moving to, literally, the farthest place from home is a little crazy. But, home is where the heart is— and my heart is in South Africa. 
I hope that my journey is a reminder that you can start over. Anywhere. Anytime.  So, whether it’s a little trip or a big adventure, where will you go in 2018?!

  • I truly believe in living life to the fullest and enjoying every moment life throws at you. Over the past 6 years, my journey as "The Blonde Abroad" has been well documented online. But, most of the time, I've only shared the highlights. This adventure has been a crazy, amazing rollercoaster-- with plenty of mishaps along the way!  I'm so excited to share my newest video in partnership with @HerbalEssences. It's not often I work with a brand that is so supportive of my creative vision, and has a mission that I am truly inspired by.
