I always think I’m going to be “Iceland-ed” out, but every time I look back on our photos and remember the epic, stark landscapes, I fall in love with it all over again. This time last year, we were in Iceland - and it was crazy windy, snowy, and our car doors were almost blown off. We definitely drifted on the road JUST due to wind! However, it was exhilarating and we felt like we were the only ones in Iceland (not true). This past year we went to Iceland twice - once in the winter for personal pleasure, and another for autumnal ring roading with an awesome couple, and I know I’d go back in a heartbeat! Have you been? It’s so close and accessible via Boston I’m so tempted to go again. Hey couples, we're available for Iceland elopements, engagements, or proposals!! 🤗
"This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls." John Muir. #explore#wanderlust#mountains#grandcanyon
Headlines often seem so far away. When a tsunami generating waves of 14 metres (46 feet) high hit #Samoa in 2009, I hardly knew this region. Not so for my husband, who had spent six months here as a surfer dude back in the 90's. Twenty villages on the southern coast were destroyed and he could only hope that the people he called family were somehow safe. We went searching for them this week, and were heartbroken to hear that almost all of the families in his village had left Ti'avea to resettle elsewhere—including his. Only through some cosmic kindness, brilliant detective work, and overwhelming generosity from new friends did we manage to finally find his family (visit @magyarolas for the story). We've been listening to stories of survival and tragedy all over this island, and while the human scars still seem fresh, ruins all along the coastline like this one seem to have already been reborn as nature's children.

Beside Inch beach, this place is simply amazing, it brings a lot of fun to have a hot chocolate inside. I strongly recommend to travel to Ireland, you always get to know nice people and life out of there is great. I love how the irish are so friendly 👍 Love Ireland ❤️
It might look the filming set of Game of Thrones, but it's not! 😀
It is Ayutthaya, a town 2h on the train from Bangkok! This ancient town from the 14th century was severly destroyed by the Burmese. They turned temples into ruins and vandalised Buddhas by chopping off their heads...now how exactly the head ended up intertwined in the tree it's a mystery! I like to think nature has it's ways of showing miracles! 🌿♥
I want to share with you some BIG NEWS🎉: I have changed my account handle from getlost_withme to dailytravelpill. Although I liked my old name, I had to change it. I am preparing a surprise for you soon: I am working on a blog 😆
What do you think of my new name?
Cuadrados Bag, as named by the artisan herself. This might be my favorite bag of all time made by one of my favorite new people in Oaxaca. 100% naturally dyed wool, handwoven on a pedal-operated loom. From sheep to chic, this artisan is involved in every aspect of the bag's creation. The amount of work that went into making just this bag is astounding, with the weaving alone taking around two weeks. And no one is making funkier designs using generations-old techniques. She also made the stripe backpack featured in an earlier post. Available next week when the site goes live.

From the wintry wonderland of Iceland to the highlands of Sri Lanka, there's no greater joy than exploring the world with you. Someday, we'll have one helluva epic video!
The best part of Mexico D.F.? Sure, I loved the hipster neighborhoods of Condesa and Roma, ritzy Polanco, and up-and-coming areas like Juárez and Coyocán. But one of my favorite days spent - touristy as it can be - was wandering the historic district discovering buildings like the House of Tiles (behind me), and seeing how the enormous metropolitan city has built up right around them.
Did you know the city was built right on top of the former capital of the great Aztec Empire, Tenochtitlan? You can visit the ruins located right off the Zócalo.
Have you visited D.F.? Which was your favorite neighborhood?

At 410 feet above the city, the Mehrangarh Fort towers over #Jodhpur in a way you can't ignore - watching over the blue city like a sentinel. And you definitely don't want to try and ignore it - built in 1459 this is one of the most awesome forts I've seen (and that's saying something for Rajasthan!). Don't miss the beautiful Rao Jodha desert rock eco park next door on your way down! #soultravelblog
