#PositiveMonday 🌞 i'd like to share a positive travel story this week which inspired me. The travel blogger Kathy James, known as Walkabout Wanderer, found a stray dog (Echo) on a beach in San Juan, Philippines. Echo had open sores, ticks, fleas and a belly full of worms. Kathy wanted to stop his suffering and took him to a vet to get him treated with her own money. Luckily, the family Kathy was staying with offered to adopt Echo once all medical expenses had been paid. The vet then introduced Kathy to Nena Mely, a 75 year old woman who uses her own pension money to treat stray dogs in her rural village in La Union, Philippines. She had dedicated her life and home to this cause. Now that Echo has been treated, the rest of the donations will go towards treating and feeding stray dogs which Nena takes care of.

I ended an incredible four day trip in Svalbard, an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean (around 1,000kms from the North Pole) with a husky sledding trip into the Arctic wilderness. If you are a dog lover- you need to experience this here. These dogs are so friendly and looking only for love and cuddles. They really work so hard to get you through the wilderness and it's amazing how quickly you develop a bond with them on this excursion. On this trip, I was lucky to experience a spectacular Northern Lights display, go snowmobiling, husky sledding, spot reindeer and Arctic fox, make six new friends from across the globe, fall just once in the snow (pretty impressive for me- I'm quite clumsy) and eat reindeer, whale, moose and seal - this trip really has been life changing and cant recommend it enough. If you're planning on going here, which you should, send me a message 😊. Check out my Facebook page- www.facebook.com/voyageurchic for a detailed video.

A student for the first time was able to sense through her body to feel where she keeps tension. During class I help students relieve pain through sensing from left to right sides. As you rotate attention from the pain to another sensation the mind begins to perceive it differently - the pain is occurring but my awareness can control it. The student thanked me for her experience. Her joy made me smile. Our bodies talk to us daily, what is it telling you right now? #powerofshe
"She was a free spirit, and a wayward soul.. She was always in motion, and there were times when she longed for the sea.. She wasn’t perfect, but perfection never interested her much.. Instead she longed for sand between her toes, and sunlight kissing her skin, and the wind holding her for a moment, then letting go. 🌺M.A. #seychelles #paradise #island #cabincrew #wearetravelgirls #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #darlingescapes #ladiesgoneglobal #globelletravels #ggi #girlgoneinternational #girlaroundtheworld #travelfemme #travellushes #gotravelgirls #visitseychelles
✖️CUBA✖️ A trip to Cuba is extraordinary in every aspect... absolutely beautiful, deeply interesting and constantly challenging. Everybody is talking about how awesome it is to see the country now before it changes too much, but nobody mentions the downsides. For example that they have shortages of essentials like bottled water or toiletpaper from time to time... So I really recommend you to go to see the situation yourself - expect a country like no other which will stress you, force your improvisation skills but then again amazes you with its bright colors, stunning nature and locals who don't have much but make the best out of it. 🇨🇺- Jan 2017 - #cuba #beach #classiccar #pastelcolors
