Why is it that cocktails taste better by a pool or beach? 🤔 (in this case, it was both ⛱🏊🏼‍♀️)

Check out of this beachfront pool @shuttersca in my #leadinghotels video. Nothing like a beachy #staycation! Link  in profile 👆🏼😎
Where's Waldo Friday! 👀 I spent 4 days exploring this National Park- hiking giant mountains, trekking to waterfalls, spelunking, swimming in grottoes, snorkeling in darkness & zip lining all over. Any guesses where this is? If no one gets it, I'll post some hints in the comments! #whereswaldo
I am in L😍VE with California and there are few things that I enjoy more than filming this crazy fun state & featuring incredible hotels. Thank you @leadinghotelsoftheworld for having me showcase 4 stunning properties in my latest video- from Malibu to Santa Monica to Beverly Hills. Each had completely different personalities but all had a lot of sass & a lot of class.

Check out which 4 luxury hotels I featured in my video. Link in profile!

🛎Leave me a comment to tell me which one is your favorite! 🏖

Video & photo shot with my @gopro #hero5 🤙🏼
Summer is a state of mind... and given that it is 85 & sunny in SoCal, it is also a state of reality. (I am ok with that.)👌🏽 #endlesssummer 📸: @amodernrover yacht dress: @marinelayer

Not a Monday person? This is what Monday looks like in South Africa...😳🌊#justgo #mondayblues
Quick beach break to rehydrate, then back out there. These waves are not going to surf themselves! I definitely think a this Tart Cherry Master Brew Kombucha from @kevitadrinks is going to give me the oomph I need to keep tackling perfect wave after perfect wave. And since I’m a beginner, this involves a lot falling & getting pounded by these perfect waves :)

The list of places that I want to see is continuously growing (as you might have guessed 😜). Yet I realize that try as I might, I will never be able to see them all.
•
However, there is a very short list of places that I KNOW I will to return too. The Lake Geneva region of Switzerland is on that shortlist. 🇨🇭
•
One year ago today, I was frolicking in these hills, hanging out 🔔 clad cows, eating copious amounts of local cheese & breathing in this crisp alpine air.
•
If you haven't been, I suggest you add this Swiss region to your list (Vevey, Chateau D'Oex, Lavaux...) 🐮 I promise- you will not be disappointed. 🧀🏔
There is no time to be bored in a World as beautiful as this. 🌎

A lot of people are battling colds & flus right now, but I am battling a serious case of wanderlust! Even though I just got home Tuesday, I am already looking ahead- finalizing my last adventures for 2017 & planning for a big 2018 of discovery. While doing so, I am reflecting on trips that changed me- this outdoor focused shoot in Bahia, Brazil being one of them. Thanks to @ustoanyc, @intrepidtravel & @visitbrasil for making my job so fun! 
Clearly, I am an addict- and this travel bug just grows stronger! ✈️✌🏼✨#cantstopwontstop
This is not my average post, but it is not every day that you get to take a selfie with an impactful world leader! Thanks for the photo with me, Prime Minister Abe! 🇯🇵⛩🇯🇵
I still cannot believe that I gave a talk about my experience in Japan at the General Assembly Japanese event just a few weeks back in NYC. Honored to have also had a chat with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzō Abe, and answer his questions about my @CNN video shoot in Tohoku. He thanked me sharing more about the hidden gems of this incredible country, which I am more than happy to do. ✌🏼❤️🗾#lovejapan
