Had a great time in Munich and Oktoberfest was a LITUATION 🍻🔥 Shout out to my cuz @shell_rock_82 for being a 5* tour guide 😁 #TravelTuesday
I already used 'OktoberFRESH' in my story, but I couldn't think of anything else so I'm using it again 🍻 #OktoberFRESH #AnnualPhotoOfMeInADress
So my trip to Shanghai was brief, but more fun than I expected 😁! I didn't do anything touristy, but I did walk around parts of the city, took frequent trips on the metro and ate some good food with some great cocktails🍸. What surprised me the most was how little reaction I got over there; people generally paid little attention to me. No one really stared or acted weird around me which isn't what I expected at all tbh. I wouldn't come back for a holiday, but I'd maybe visit again if I had a layover/was backpacking through Asia.
Ya girl's getting FLEWED OUT on her first international business trip 😁 #AchievementUnlocked I'm going to Shanghai later this month for a few days and whilst I'm excited, I'm also a bit apprehensive because you know, #TravellingWhilstBlack and all that. I'm going for work, so I won't be exploring and I'm trying to go without any preconceptions! Also looking forward to the food because #foodislife 😋
This was such a good read! I loved the format of it and as cliché as it sounds, it really is quite thought-provoking; it's not another cheesy 'self-help' book. Some of the concepts are difficult to grasp at first, but it's introduced me to new perspectives and I know I'll be re-reading it. One of my fav snippets: 'You perceive other people's happiness as 'my defeat' and that's why you can't celebrate it. However, once one is released from the schema of competition, the need to triumph over someone disappears.' SIDE NOTE: if you're looking for a book sleeve, check out @artisanal_ane as she's got some 🔥designs.
Documenting my travels is important for me, but I don’t spend too much time with my camera as I want to be present in the moment. I'll always take pictures, but I don’t think I’ll continue vlogging my trips. Whilst I enjoy being creative with video, I don’t enjoy how much time it takes compared to photography #CBA 🤷🏾♀️
Nothing beats a good view 🏞️ (except good food)
Halfway through the year and it's been a pretty good year so far!⠀ I took my first trip to Asia #solo, started an exciting new job and I chopped my hair off (which doesn't seem as big as the other two, but trust me, it was 😂)⠀ Here's to the rest of 2019 being productive, progressive and positive 💪🏾
