Happy Tuesday everyone! How is your week going so far? It’s back to the daily routine for me with the kids in Hong Kong 🤓! But I secretly wish that I still in Zanzibar, exploring the beautiful streets of Stone Town ✨
Cycling makes me feel so free and I love the fact that Rottnest Island is car-free 👌🏻
I mean, who wouldn't want to explore this gorgeous island by bike anyway??!
Which activity do you enjoy the most when you're on holiday??

One of the best things I did last year was to get some insight into Vincent #VanGogh's life, tracking down places in #France where he lived and worked. Curious?
Follow me on the Van Gogh trail. Part II of the mammoth Blogpost ( #SaintRemy) up now on the blog. Link on profile page @chamellephoto or go to www.chamellephotography.com
This is the beautiful #RomanesqueCloister garden inside the mental hospital #saintpauldemausole where he stayed for a year... .

I keep going back to the Goa Rangko cave on Flores island as it holds a special place in my heart but no matter how many pictures I take it never does it justice 🙈 #bluemagic
Salty Breeze & Turquoise Seas ✌️🌊☀️🐠
This photo was taken last month (how can it already be a month?!) during my trip with the @unwto . This was after an hour and a half of hiking in the jungle, on mud paths that our guide cleared with a machete. I was drenched in sweat and speckled with mud, but the wind in my hair and a 360 degree view of turquoise seas made me feel alive.
I always love looking down from viewpoints on hikes and reminding myself that MY legs brought me there. What a privilege that is. Focusing on what our bodies CAN do is so much more productive than worrying about what they can't. (Something I need to focus more on this year. Anyone else? 🙋🙋♂️)
And guys, I'm super excited to say I FINALLY had the chance to write down all my thoughts on my incredible round-the-world trip. The biggest question I tackled is “What IS sustainable travel?”… People keep asking me this question. I’ve gotta say, it is something I'm still learning. And you know what — it looks different depending on where in the world you are. Sustainable travel looks different in Germany than in does in Colombia. How? Check out what I have to say in the latest blog post (link in bio 👆)!

Street view in the Spanish village in Barcelona. The Poble Espanyol is primarily an open-air museum, that shows replicas of characteristic houses from all regions of Spain.
Day #1 of our Sri Lanka trip: after a busy night on the road, one only deserves spending a relaxing day in the sky 💙💙

Last looks! Another chapter ends on the great hotel migration. Thank you so much to @hotelxcaretmexico for hosting me! I’ve loved exploring all the hidden corners, discovering secret beaches and surprise caves. Such a unique hotel. Now, onto the next... #hotelxcaretmexico#xcaret

It's a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same even smells the same. You realize what's changed is you. - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Here’s to Machu Picchu; a landmark that continues to be better than all the postcard pictures ⛰
Although a few things sadly affected my time in South America (travel isn’t always perfect right?) I simply found it impossible not to smile and appreciate the beauty of these unexplainable ruins ✨

I love the life of the tropics. Simply, I love to be able to be kissed by the sun, to be more active and to have the encouragement not to store fat. 🌴☀️🤸🏻♀️
Do you prefer the tropical paradise or the winter wonderland?
Hi. I’m Brogan. You’re probably used to seeing photos of my back or photos of me from far away. I’ve been camera shy for as long as I can remember, afraid to capture my flaws and put them on display for everyone to see. Afraid to show the lines around my mouth, my crows feet, my crooked smile, my scars and sun spots. All the evidence of life that wears on me. One day it hit me that I am lucky to have lived long enough to see those things, when other’s lives have been cut short. Since then I’ve made it a point to try to love myself and my life, flaws included and be thankful for the life I have every single day. And while it’s not always easy and while I still feel insecure, I see things a bit differently now.
I see lines around my face from years of laughter and happiness. I see a crooked smile that my husband would do anything to see. I see scars from getting up and dusting myself off when I’ve fallen on my face (usually in front of a large crowd). I see sun spots from endless summer days on the water with friends and family that mean more to me than I could ever convey. I see life, and that’s the greatest gift I’ve ever been granted.
Who are you, and what are you thankful for today?

going from 0 degrees to +26, I can’t wait to finally have spring again in Europe. So far, Eilat is pretty nice. We stay at a gorgoeus hotel and tomorrow we are going to a canyon :) _____
This shot was taken last week at Stift Melk which was the first city in Austria many many years ago. I enjoyed the tour and learning about my home country. And the castle with it’s orange tones was pretty nice :) I wanted to share this picture before I start sharing the Israel shots, didn’t have any time yet to shoot or edit pics.

Thanks @ryanair for letting us fly last LAST minute. Since I needed to get an emergency passport, we were kind of chaotic and calculated the wrong time for being at the airport. We put our car to the parking slot in Bratislava at 7:15 and took off at 7:45, arriving at the airport at 7:25 when all gates were closed and having final call with an emergency passport! Really, really!, appreciated for supporting us and handling us with priority! ❤️❤️❤️ BIGGG THANKS!!!!
No, I didn’t head to Europe from Sri Lanka. Have you ever heard about Galle? This UNESCO listed city is something you should definitely not miss when visiting the country. Founded in the 16th century by the Portuguese, Galle reached the height of its development in the 18th century, before the arrival of the British: it’s exotic streets are blessed with a variety of Dutch-colonial buildings, narrow cobblestone streets, so you feel like you are not in Sri Lanka at all 🧐
You walk and walk for hours passing by impeccably restored houses, stylish cafes and right after the sunset dine at one of Galle’s beautiful restaurants 👌🏼
Food lovers! Here are the best dining places I have tried in Sri Lanka: .
🔸 Galle - Fortaleza, the Tuna & the Crab
🔸 Unawatuna - Koko's Beach Bar & Grill, Neptune Bay Restaraunt
🔸 Talalla South - Zephyr Talalla
🔸 Ella - Chill Restaurant Bar, Ak Ristoro
🔸 Nuwara Eliya - Grand Indian 😋
Нет, я не поехала после Шри-Ланки на европейские просторы. Слышали ли вы про Галле? Этот портовый город - одна из главных достопримечательностей Шри-Ланки, внесенная во всемирный список наследия ЮНЕСКО. В 16-м веке Галле был под контролем португальских колонизаторов, в середине 17-го - перешёл под контроль голландцев, а в 19-ом был захвачен британцами: отсюда уникальная архитектура, мощёные улочки и чувство того, что ты находишься совсем не на Шри-Ланке 🧐
Всего 10 минут на скутере и вы уже гуляете среди колоритных домов, заглядываете в зелёные дворики, выходите на набережную, а к вечеру идёте в один из многочисленных ресторанов, чтобы почувствовать себя уж точно потерянным во времени.
К слову, о ресторанах. Внизу самые 👌🏼 по всей Шри-Ланке:
🔸 Галле - Fortaleza, the Tuna & the Crab
🔸 Унаватуна - Koko's Beach Bar & Grill, Neptune Bay Restaraunt
🔸 Талала - Zephyr Talalla
🔸 Элла - Chill Restaurant Bar, Ak Ristoro
🔸 Нувара Элия - Grand Indian 😋
