  • Let’s talk about flying. Right now I am only comfortable with flying domestic, not international. I have flown once since coronavirus hit the U.S. We flew to Portland and back with @southwestair to visit family. They have the middle seat blocked right now and honestly I would choose to only fly with airlines blocking middle seats. This allows for social distancing on the planes. The planes are the cleanest they’ve ever been, but I still brought disinfectant wipes to wipe down our whole area. We also used hand sanitizer frequently and wore our masks the whole time, except to eat and drink. Southwest did just announce they will no longer be disinfecting seat belts and armrests between flights, kind of disappointed in that decision. I did come across a woman who wore her mask over her chin for most of the flight and began to deboard like this. I asked her kindly to wear her mask and she fixed it. If you’re going to fly, please wear your mask over your mouth AND NOSE. It’s out of respect for the people around you and the flight crew, help keep everyone safe. This weekend we are flying into Boston with @jetblue to visit family. We are getting a COVID test before we fly out, that way we do not have to quarantine for 14 days. I will try to document my experience, so you can see what it is like to fly right now.

  • If you need to reach me today, I will (mentally) be in #Elba enjoying spaghetti alle vongole and a nice fresh bottle of procanico. 

Elba is Italy’s 3rd largest island after Sicily and Sardinia. It’s off the Tuscan coast and easy to reach by ferry. I recommend taking a car so you can easily explore the beaches, wineries, and find the goat farm high up on the mountain where they make fresh cheese samplers and goat milk gelato. Also, you can interact with the goats and help them milk!

  • Part 6 - ways you can travel more sustainably: 

💵 Support local communities 💵 

Wherever you go, support the local people and businesses. Eat, drink, shop and stay local. Opt out of all-inclusive packages. Immerse yourself in the culture, partake in beach cleanups, volunteer at the local animal rescue center/vet clinic, etc. Make sure your tourism dollar stays in the country you are visiting.

  • Part 4 - ways you can travel more sustainably: 

🌎 Use products that aren’t harmful to Earth 🌍 

Many people don’t know that chemicals in sunscreen are detrimental to coral reefs. I use Stream 2 Sea products, they don’t use harmful chemicals such as Oxybenzone. Their leave-in conditioner is a life saver for my thick, curly hair when scuba diving!

  • What’s your vibe today — mountains, valley, or beach? I’m feeling that Tuscan valley at sunset!

  • Part 3 - ways you can travel more sustainably: 

🥤 Avoid use of plastics 🥤

Plastics do not decompose, they are on this earth forever and are causing many environmental issues. Always bring a refillable water bottle with you, this will reduce the amount of plastic cups and bottles thrown in the waist bin. My favorite is my @swellbottle, I carry it with me everywhere. Try drinking straight from the glass instead of using a straw #skipthestraw. I also travel with an organic cotton tote, bamboo cutlery and a stainless steel food tin.

  • Part 1 - ways you can travel more sustainably: 👣 Reduce your carbon footprint 👣 ✈️ Fly only when you absolutely have to, the less flights you take the better. Instead of taking two one week trips a year, take one two week trip. If you can, choose nonstop flights over layovers. The bulk of flight emissions occur at takeoff and landing. 🚞 Trains and automobiles use less fuel than planes. 🚎 Using public transportation instead of private reduces your carbon footprint. 🚶 Walking or riding a bike uses no fuel and you get excersize! Choose the kayak tour instead of the jetski tour. 💼 Pack light, less weight will reduce carbon emissions. I rarely check a bag, my favorite carry-on is the @away carry-on. You’ll be shocked at how much you can fit in this bag!

  • Everyone keeps talking about the “new normal” of travel, but what does that mean? Yes, travel is going to be different post-COVID, but I also believe there should be a shift towards more sustainable tourism. As travel makes a comeback, we as consumers should be making better decisions on how we travel. Sustainable tourism is all about lowering your footprint, experiencing cultures and supporting local communities. Follow along with my next few posts, which will highlight ways you can travel more sustainably. •

  • Hey you. I see you. I know you are feeling a little neglected these days. And I’m so sorry for that. I don’t even know when I will be able to take you out again yet. But just because you’re not “in use” right now, doesn’t mean I don’t think of you often. In fact, I think about you everyday. 
You are loved and appreciated and I’m grateful for the doors that have opened because of you. The new places, new adventures, new experiences and the memories! You are my favourite book and I look forward to when we can add more stamps onto your pages. 
I took her out last at the beginning of this year on my trip to Arizona, USA. Where is the last stamp on your passport from?

  • A morning dip in thermal water with this kind of view... please don’t make me leave!
•
@albergopostamarcucci is the only hotel in Bagno Vignoni who’s pools’ thermal water come directly from the spewing hot springs. Not only this, but the pool overlooks and incredible view and the warm, mineral rich waters are one of the most therapeutic experiences.

  • Exploring Seoul’s food market may have been one of the most exciting parts of our time here. Okay, maybe second after shopping for all of the Korean Beauty products. 
Although I wasn’t brave enough to try everything (sorry no live octopus this time) learning about new culinary traditions is one of my favorites parts about travel. I have to say, the fried pork meatball and fried rice pancakes were our favorite find at the night market.

North Bali is full of sightseeing gems, hiking, waterfalls, and incredible villas. With only a 2.5 hour drive from beach hotspots like Canggu & Seminyak, there’s not excuse to not squeeze it into your itinerary.
