Layers of love 💗 Alberta you beauty 🐿
What a crazy old time life is. Just a few weeks ago I was gazing out this window at Mt Everest. I feel like I’ve been time traveling or something! So weird 💫 I know I’m big on reflections at the moment but life’s just been on high speed with all the dials turned up! It’s been amazing, I feel like there is always something to look forward to in my life which is a beautiful thing 💕⭐️
Hiked up to this beautiful spot behind our home! Mt Lady MacDonald did not disappoint, in fact quite the opposite! 🌓 there isn’t much that makes me feel more alive than breathing in the fresh cold air, climbing a mountain and soaking up the views as a reward. ⭐️
Three day weekend + work Christmas party this w/e 🎄💫 (reality is il be working on @neatsocial but that’s ok!)
How cool is it that the rivers freeze in Canada!? It’s freakin cold enough... -18 right now 🎄 Don’t mind me, I’m just over here freezing my NZ booty off! Worth all the frozen things for how pretty it is here though!
Mmmhmm! Dreamy arvos nestled in the Canadian Rockies, life’s pretty good right now 💫
A big ol round of applause to the people out there working hard to make their dreams come true. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽Business, school, work + side hustle. I’ve done my fair share of this and continue to do so! I really love being busy and working towards goals, what I continue to notice is that being deemed “smart” doesn’t necessarily mean success In adult life. In school you’re categorised into one or the other but If you’re determined and you work hard you can be anywhere you want to be. I know what I want and I’m not afraid to grab it most of the time, but it wasn’t always that way. My self confidence took a beating at my last job and as unfortunate as that was I’m lucky enough it drove me to start a really wicked business with an amazing woman and work with some incredible people that all share the same values and perspectives on life. I’m proud of myself (how often do you hear someone say that) What’s your greatest achievement?? ⭐️🎄
Up near the top of the world! The final couple of days to Everest Base Camp were a real push with the altitude 🇳🇵 and having to pee every 15 mins😂Soaked up every moment though. Today we bought some ice cleats so our outdoor adventures can continue despite the ice and snow ⛄️ they work a real treat.
Sitting here drinking a cup of tea in our cozy little Canadian home🏡 Sometimes I can’t even fathom the trip we did around the world. It’s crazy to think a couple of months ago we were climbing up to Everest Base Camp and roaming the streets of India. It’s only now I really think about all the countries we visited and how they have truly impacted my day to day being and thinking. My brain has been rewired after being exposed to so many horrific, utterly beautiful, and confronting sights. My eyes will never be as they were and neither will my thoughts. - - 🙏🏽 I’m inspired by the things we saw and did, inspired for change too. It all didn’t seem so intense when it was happening because it was just what was happening. But now looking back and putting the puzzle pieces together I can truly say each country changed me In a way I can’t describe. Travel is a wonderful, wonderful thing. An amazing opportunity I was fortunate enough to work hard for. Its worth every penny of experience and life learning that I’ve been so lucky to have been exposed to 💕🚀
Kinda like this one - looks like the mountains are being engulfed in fiery flames. Hello people of the insta world, I’ve been too engrossed in my real life that I haven’t been sharing so much. Il get onto that 🌿 Hope everyone has a lovely week 💕
Soft sunsets with my pal 🌞 love digging the 135mm our for a play. I’ve been logged out of my account the last few days, man it feels good to take breaks from social media. I’m guilty of getting wrapped up in it sometimes! 🌿 It’s nice to have breathing space to just be. 💫
The best spot for lunch in my expert opinion, is right here. Bit of chilly commute but I’m sure it’s worth it 😬❄️
Im so full right now, we just ate our weight in tacos 🌮 Soz but it’s all I can think about right now 😭😂Here’s a totally unrelated picture from my adventures a few weekends back with some cool Canadian folk.
I didn’t think I’d like Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 I don’t even know why, I didn’t know anything about the place. Turns out it’s now one of the best places I’ve been. We hiked up Ella Rock for sunrise, this was actually after that but it was so beautiful 🗻 There wasn’t a breath of wind. I’d go back in a heart beat if I’m honest, there’s something magic about it✨
Everest Base Camp was a total dream 🇳🇵I remember the moment I snapped this photo. It was the first time our crew saw Everest on the 4th day of our hike. Despite popular belief it’s actually quite hard to spot on the way due to mountain weather and surrounding mountains that appear bigger because they are closer 😅 BUT That’s her over on the left there sitting pretty. Hard to imagine the scale of 8,848m high. But the deeper we got into the mountains the bigger she grew and it was breathtaking. Is anyone planning on doing EBC in the near future? 🗻
@kirstina_sam feeling the force of Skogafoss! The biggest and best waterfall I’ve even seen with my eyes!!! How incredible is this beast? 💦
Russ always reiterates to me that “you create your own luck” 🃏 I used to scoff at it and say “some are born into luck” BUT, I’ve had a massive change of tune. Maybe had things been different in my upbringing or my adult life I wouldn’t have felt the need to visit India, Nepal and various other incredible places. Everything we’ve seen around the world over the last few months leading us to where we are now was all created uniquely by us. 🕓 We chose to work our butts off in the corporate world to bring us to these moments we are having now ✨ Hard work, determination and passion plays a big part in who we are and where we are 💫 What drives you to happiness?
Well the snow has arrived here...Hard to believe this was a few days ago! 🍃 I spent the day outdoors, 4 hours volunteering at a husky dog kennel in -6 ❄️ check my stories for a photo of my fave new pal. Shot 📷 Last weekend at the @lostcoordinate + @marcwebster meet up of @jayrmcdonald 👌🏼
