  • I don’t know about you but for the last week or so I feel like I’ve been on a rollercoaster emotionally...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I get good news and I feel happy. I get less favorable news and all of a sudden I’m feeling low... Things go my way and I feel full of gratitude but then I get an annoying email or message and all of a sudden I’m spiraling...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Something I learned a long time ago was that being at the mercy of the uncontrollable conditions of life is one of the most disempowering feelings I know... it’s a rollercoaster ride I don’t want to be on...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Truth be told the alternative, even though it is WAY more freeing, takes effort that is sometimes hard to muster... for me it takes putting my phone down.. it takes sitting my ass on a cushion and closing my eyes for 20 mins... taking a yoga class... getting some fresh air... it takes a moment of awareness to go against the current flow of my habits...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, in my constant effort to release any striving for perfection, I am choosing to be kind to myself for getting lost in all this... I am giving myself some grace... but I am also making the decision to choose differently... today I’m going on a hike. I’m going to spend as much time as possible out of cell service and savor the sweetness of some fresh air. Today I’m getting off the rollercoaster... (photo by @photograferg)

  • November is a special month for us for one particular reason. Its that time of the year when we get to witness the beautiful cherry blossom which makes our forest look magical. 🌸🌸 These pink flowers are indeed beautiful and charming. The only disappointing part is that the blossom lasts only for about a month. But that's how nature works. 
Luckily, around the same time, we also witness the phenomenal red blossoms of the East Indian Almond tree, commonly known as Paani Saas. Its blossom period is long giving us a enough time to behold her beauty.

These blossoms are perhaps nature's way of declaring the onset of winters.

We feel blessed to have these beautiful blossoming plants at our farm, for they surely uplift our soul.

  • I have a very old French world map in my work office. I have looked for mountains all over the world, and plan all my trips according to that map. Looking for the mountains I haven't met yet.

Ich bin wirklich froh, dass wir uns diese kurzen Auszeiten gönnen können. Auch wenn sie meistens etwas anstrengend sind, freut man sich doch umso mehr die Erinnerungen abgespeichert zu haben. Tut gut dir die Seele und die Beziehung ❤️

  • New Zealand || Day 10⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Owen and I woke up to the craziest wind and rain shaking and rocking our van every which way. I guess it’s an early start for us! ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We got on the road and drove to the town of Twizel for brunch and it was SO TASTY. Why is all the coffee here so good? ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
After our brunch, we drove to Lake Tekapo in the craziest winds, but we managed. The lake is literally turquoise and stunning. We enjoyed restaurant hopping to drink beers and eat some appetizers, mainly to stay out of the insane wind. ⁣⁣*see hair*⁣
⁣
We also stopped by the Church of the Good Shepherd. It was a tiny, but beautiful historic church right on the lake. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Before dark, we drove to Albert Town to camp to prepare for our day in Wanaka the next morning. We will be going jet boating and we are stoked! We ended the night in our van with wine, cheese, and salami like true broke, travelers. 😭⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Also, in the last picture, I am giving Swanthony his nightly cuddle. Swanthony is my birthday swan I named Anthony and Owen said, “You mean Swanthony?” He has traveled with us in the van every day and we make sure to put him in the driver seat every night while we sleep to protect us. 😂 🦢⁣⁣⁣

At first, this waterfall was far from popular since it was hidden inside layers of thick forest.

Upon realizing this hidden gem, the locals cleared the area, paved the pathway, and develop the area to what it is look like right know: one of the many popular local destination of the region.
