A good book, a cup of tea and a new adventure is all I need. Planning for some major change come 2018.

Chefchaouen encourages strolling and wandering its tiny streets. In this charming little town in the Rif, whitewash mixed with blue pigments deters insects and evil spirits. The indigo blue is the noble colour of the Sahara and of the turbans worn by the Tuaregs. chefchaouen morocco blue bluestreet exploremorocco traveltheworld travellingthroughtheworld travelmorocco natgeotravel natgeotravelpic natgeo igersmorocco ig_morocco visitmorocco ladiesgoneglobal thetravelwomen myfavtourlina damestravel darlingescapes morocco🇲🇦 rif northafrica medina oldmedina beautifuldestination exploremore womenwhotravel womenwhoexplore

Tea is very serious business in Morocco. Green tea with mint is what completes a meal. The springs of Mint are washed and dried and are merely bent before being added to the teapot. They are never cut. The teapot is then raised high above the glasd to pour the tea. It can be flavoured with Saffron, Marjoram or Orange flower. So far I am drinking tea all day....I love being in a country with a strong tea culture. marrakech morocco moroccanmint moroccantea teatime tealove traveltheworld ig_marrakesh igersmarrakech travelmorocco ilovemorocco natgeotravelpic natgeo exploremorocco minttea greentea thetravelwomen damestravel wandering_swank darlingescapes ladiesgoneglobal sheisnotlost beautifuldestinations

Today was a huge item off my bucketlist. I have always wanted to go interact with wild monkeys. Travelled into the Atlas mountains to visit the Ouzoud warerfalls which are magical with Barbary apes living free swinging from olive branches and vines along the waterfalls. This is a moment I have dreamed about. We held hands for a brief moment. I just have to pretend it was out of friendship and not him trying to find food. ouzoud ouzoudwaterfalls ouzoudfalls atlas atlasmountains barbary barbaryape monkey travelmorocco thetravelwomen darlingescapes wandering_swank damestravel exploremorocco morocco ig_morocco igersmorocco myfavtourlina tourlina ladiesgoneglobal sheisnotlost womenwhoexplore womenwhotravel northafrica africa traveltheworld beautifuldestinations

Today was a very special day. When I was a young pup and had not travelled much on my own. I took an internship with @aiesecturkey in Istanbul. I met with 20 interns from all over the world and two of them were from Morocco. Today was the first time we had seen eachother in 5 years. rabat morocco hassantower hassan travelgirls moroccotravel exploremorocco igersmorocco ig_morocco igersrabat rabattcode aiesec aiesecer aiesecers aiesec aiesecistanbul thetravelwomen myfavtourlina darlingescapes damestravel natgeotravel natgeotravelpic rainydays bucketlist

Finally landed today in Morocco! Will be travelling through here for the next few weeks. First stop was in Casablanca which turned out to be a complete surprise fav of mine. I have loved wandering the Medina and loved how kind and helpful all Moroccans have been every time I have gotten lost or even look lost. 🇲🇦🇲🇦🇲🇦🇲🇦🇲🇦🇲🇦 casablanca medina oldmedina oldtown morocco moroccotravel ig_morocco igersmorocco thetravelwomen darlingescapes damestravel womenwhoexplore womenwhotravel exploremorocco myfavtourlina bucketlist natgeo natgeotravel natgeotravelpic ladiesgoneglobal sheisnotlost

What to do with a 11 hour layover? Spend it in -14 degree Montreal. It was freezing but worth it to see this pretty city. Although next time I would like to return in Spring.

Icelanders have a beautiful tradition of giving books to eachother of Christmas eve and then spending the night reading. The custom is so deeply ingrained in the culture that it is the reason that Jólabókaflóð or "Christmas book floood", when the majority of books in Iceland are sold between September and December. 📚📚📚📚 This tradition started during World War II when foreign imports were restricted, but paper was cheap. Paper was one of the items not rationed during the war. So people shared their love of books when other gifts were in short supply. Now today it has created a culture of bookaholics but I am in love with this tradition. This year I made sure to give books with my gifts as well. It can be so personal to pick a book for someone you care about. 📚📚📚📚 Photo is from my last year December holiday in Amsterdam at the Rijksmuseum Research Library. 📚📚📚📚 amsterdam rijksmuseum library researchlibrary christmasbookflood christmasbooks bookstagram booklover booknerd rijksmuseumamsterdam rijksmuseumlibrary ig_amsterdam thetravelwomen darlingescapes womenwhotravel bucketlist jolabokaflod bookflood netherlands ig_netherlands exploreamsterdam igholland ig_holland ig_europe loveseurope euro_shot kings_villages christmas christmaseve

Porto is one of my favourite cities by far. Last year I went back for a second time to spend actual time to explore and see the city.

Today is World Mental Health Day, an important time to think about how to be understanding to the people in your life. There are many happy days in my life but living with Anxiety and Depression, there are some days that are dark and difficult. Some of the biggest things my friends have ever done is just listen and be understanding. Sometimes just being there for a person can make all the difference to a person. Try to be empathetic and remember a mental illness does not have to define a person, everyone has something more to offer. berlin berlinerdom ig_berlin ig_berlincity germany ig_germany exploreberlin travelgermany worldmentalhealthday natgeotravelpic natgeotravel travelberlin history worldhistory thetravelwomen darlingescapes wearetravelgirls damestravel travelgirls womenwhoexplore womenwhotravel worlderlust dametraveler

This summer I went to Denmark for first time and I went to Ribe. This is the oldest town in Denmark (and in Scandinavia). In Ribe, the medieval past sets the stage for a vibrant town filled with history with The Night Watchman tour being a must in the evening. I went to the top of the Ribe Cathedral (Vor Frue Kirke/Our Lady Maria Cathedral) which is also the oldest cathedral in Denmark. At the top you get a stunning view of the cute cobblestone streets of Ribe, the lush Danish countryside all the way to the sea. I had loved being able to stop at random farms and play with the animals. One of the best things about Denmark is its strong laws in place to protect farm animals. Be warned, Ribe is quite windy but now I own a sweet Danish jacket. ribe denmark cafequedens quedens visitdenmark visitribe living_europe scandinavia hello_worldpics govisitdenmark igersdenmark natgeo natgeotravel travelgram oldtown horse horses farm farming cathedral natgeotravelpic darlingescapes thetravelwomen damestravel wearetravelgirls dametraveler cafe patio history

Wildflowers can be seen along the trail that vary in colour and type. It makes it quite a magical walk along the meadow. I had to be partially in the water so my feet got pretty frozen from glacier water but a heat wave helps. ⛰⛰⛰⛰ BC is home to so many wildflowers and each trail offers different ones. There is only a short time to enjoy the flowers from July to September so best time of year to take advantage of nature. It is stunning to see a kaleidoscope of colours. 🗻🗻🗻🗻 brandywine brandywinemeadows whistler vancouvertrails explorebc outdoorvancouver ilovebc hikebc discoverbc wildflowers wildflowerseason pnwflowers pnwonderland pnwcollective mtnbabes outdoorculture choosemountains getoutstayout wildernessculture keepitwild theoutbound stayandwander exploremore goexplore wandering_swank damestravel womenwhoexplore

After many weeks off hiking from a injury in my back. I was able to get back in the mountains. Started the trail at 7:00am and made it to the top by 9:30am. Was a perfect way to start my Sunday and to get back into hiking. Has been a difficult summer without it. So excited to get some more trails in before Summer ends! stmarkssummit howesound howesoundcresttrail vancouver vancityhype happeningoutside hikesnearvancouver mtnbabes outdoorwomen outdoorvancouver boredinvancouver wandering_swank wanderlust hikingadventures hiking womenhiking myfavtourlina thetravelwomen wondermore damestravel womenwhoexplore vancityhikes explorebc hikebc hellobc westvancouver cypress cypresstrails seatosky

Hamburg is a city that seems to live in the greyness. When the sun comes out, the city seems to come alive. One of the best places to head is to the Inner Alster which is like a little paradise in the city.

Back in beautiful Hamburg! Spent the day at Planten un Blomen which comes alive in the sunshine as this city is best enjoyed outdoors! 🌹🌹🌹🌹 This rose garden is laid out in a classical style with about 300 different kind of roses which includes historic roses, wild roses, climbing roses, and even some hybrids. 🌹🌹🌹🌹 The park has so much to offer from one of the largest outdoor Japanese gardens in Europe to tropical greenhouses and even water light shows on the lake in the evening. 🌹🌹🌹🌹 The first plant here was in November 1821 and the park has been growing since. It is open all year round and has free entrance.

Did you know that Poland has it's own Sahara? 🐪🐫🏜🏜 Pustynia Błędowska is Europe's largest area of sand away from any water. This was historically from over use of water resources and tree cutting. It has started to grow vegetation in the past years but Poland now wants to reserve it's desert. During World War II, Germany used this area to train troops that were being sent to North Africa. pustyniabledowska bledowdesert Poland kraków thetravelwomen myfavtourlina wearetravelgirls travelbff lubiepolska travelpoland desert sahara polishsahara polish ig_krakow wanderlust worlderlust travelgram sheisnotlost darlingescapes travelstroke dametraveler
