1 thing you know about me: I love this quote❤️ Two things you don’t know about me:
1. My first trip abroad was to Senegal when I was 19. 2. I broke a toe 2 days into said trip playing an extreme version of Spoons 😂 and a few days later that foot was stung by a scorpion 😩
👉What’s something I don’t know about you?
To the best birthday EVER!!! Egypt has been CRAZY! & FULFILLING!
To the nonstop beeping horns of Cairo & being hissed at & taunted by little children about my hair & literally telling people to stop trying to take pictures of me 😂🙄
To hearing the Azaan 45 times in 9 days and feeling like my heart was shaking inside my body & tears would flow from my eyes
To meeting some really dope ass people who took care of me (my habibi 😘😍) To partaking in traditions like eating grilled corn by the Mediterranean Sea
To having random Lessons in Islam & loving the way my name sounds being said with an accent and in its correct form 😍
To People throwing down “V” signs like gang signs to get to the pyramids by gypsy cab 😂
To Being continuously stared at by men through train seat cracks & in the streets, being asked inappropriate ass questions that would have gotten them cursed out had we been in America 😂🤷🏾♀️ its all good though because their angels are on their shoulders recording everything & they’ll answer for that mess on judgement day
To Driving to Abu Simbel at 4am in a caravan doing what felt like 120mph with no lights and feeling scared af 😂
To being introduced to Twinkie’s with extra cream 😂🤢
To meeting the unbearably nice Nubian people who called me “my sista, my Queen, my cousin”
To climbing in and out of tombs in the Valley of the Kings & being formally introduced to the Ancient Egyptian culture & history.
Egypt, especially solo, is not for the faint hearted. My first time stepping foot in the motherland & an Arab nation. It’s been trying, but amazing! I’ll def be back soon 🤗🇪🇬 *Will be posting the full 3:30 video & go into further details about my trip to my first blog post on Plain life.Plain Clothes.Plane Tickets @wordpress as soon as I am settled. I go back to university in two weeks so I’m going to try & push it out b4 Then 😘

The most incredible of places! The mountain is geothermal, hence the electric color of the lake and vibrant hues of the soil. There were steam vents along the path leading up to the summit. It truly is an incredible word! Rain or sun, we are gonna have fun 🌦
Baku, the capital and commercial hub of Azerbaijan, is a low-lying city with coastline along the Caspian Sea. It's famed for its medieval walled old city along with its contemporary landmarks including the Flame Towers, skyscrapers covered with LED screens. We enjoyed great food, a Ferris wheel ride, and tons of site seeing! We only wish we had more than one day there. A true hidden gem. Have you been there?

Una Argentina que conocí en Budapest, que me convenció de ir con ella a Praga y a la que convencí de ir a Interlaken conmigo.
Platicamos, bailamos, cocinamos, comimos, nos perdimos, corrimos como locas [casi nos dejaba el tren, el bus y el Uber]
Peleamos, nos reímos [a carcajadas] tomamos muchaaaas fotos [de verdad muchas 🤐] volamos sobre Interlaken [Literal] y disfrutamos tantísimo los días que estuvimos juntas, que sentí que pasaron demasiado rápido☹️
Una de las cosas más lindas de viajar para mi es eso, conectar con “extraños” que en pocas horas se vuelven amigos para toda la vida💙
Sueño con poder visitarla pronto y a todos mis amigos Argentinos que he conocido viajando que quiero tanto 🇦🇷 Nico, gracias por compartir todas esas aventuras conmigo🌻 @nicolesiro hoy shoroooo por que te extraño! Te quiero!
📍ENGLAND, Dorset. Another shot from the beautiful Kimmeridge coastline. The little tower in the distance is caller 'Clavell Folly' - a grade II listed building built in 1830. The entire structure was moved brick by brick in 2008, 25 metres away from the cliff face as it was going to crumble into the sea! 🌊 - the path we are walking on in this photo will be probably not exist in a few years (it'll be in the ocean).
