Shark Diving With Marine Dynamics – Vlogumentary #4 (MindfulTravel TV)

While we were in Cape Town, South Africa last May, we had the absolute pleasure of partnering with Marine Dynamics and Dyer Island Conservation Trust to go Great White Shark Diving in Gansbaai (the Great White Shark capital of the world). We caught up with Tammi, our on-board marine biologist, who told us a little bit about their work, their procedures, and the initiatives they take to not only protect and conserve the animals and their environment, but to educate their visitors as well. Great Whites are truly mag[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 3 – Safari With Cheetah Plains

In celebration of #NaturePhotographyDay, I'm super excited to share our third Vlogumentary - "Safari With Cheetah Plains". During our recent trip to South Africa, we were lucky enough to visit Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and partner up with Cheetah Plains and Jaci's Sabi House, two amazing sister safari lodges that do an incredible job of immersing you in the surrounding environment and wildlife so that you leave with a greater understanding and a sense of ownership of the land and its inhabitants. Their hope is tha[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 2 – Rwanda With Humanity Unified.

I'm really excited to share this video as it is our second Vlogumentary (our series of videos that are hybrids between vlogs and mini-documentaries), and it highlights very real impact Humanity Unified has made, and the visible progress of the community we work with as a result. This past trip felt different from my first 2 because it was clear that by that point the women knew we were there to stay. They knew by then that we truly have their well-being in mind, and it showed in their warm greetings, their bright smil[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 15 – Exploring Devon, England.

This particular vlog is very special to me. It documents my first time exploring Devon County in England with my boyfriend Emil. I had the pleasure of meeting his lovely family and wandering around Totnes, the town that he grew up in. I quickly fell in love with the English countryside and its undeniable charm; and if any of you ever have the opportunity to venture outside of London to the south coasts of England, I wholeheartedly suggest you do so. This weekend trip really provided some context in terms of the type o[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 14 – My 31st Birthday in the Philippines!

Posted In: Adventures | Asia | Philippines | travel | trips | video | vlog
For my 31st birthday this past September, I thought what better way to celebrate than with some of my closest friends, in my home country that I hadn't been to in over 10 years - the Philippines! As I've gotten older I've found it more and more important to reconnect with my roots and figure out where I come from, beyond simply my direct upbringing. After all, what good is it to travel to various parts of the world and experience other cultures if you're not even in touch with your own? That said, I felt it necessary t[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 12 – Tattoo Time (Again)

Yesterday I visited Lyle Tuttle tattoo shop in North Beach, San Francisco to get a tattoo (or two). It's been over two years since I got my last tattoo so I was long overdue. My friends Alanna and John picked me up and we had a full-on tattoo party at the shop, complete with beers (I don't drink beer but I had a sip lol) and tattoos all around. "Nowhere to go but everywhere" is from On the Road Again by Jack Kerouac. Even as a simple, standalone statement like that, out of context, I believe it's so fitting for me becaus[...]
