I have been desperately waiting for a deserted island paradise like this to make the perfect drone selfie!! 😻🙋‍♀️🦅🤳🏻 🏝 . This is Iguana Island, just a short beautiful boat ride from @gansevoortturks , where the boat picks you up right from the beach! 🤤 . As the name implies, the island has a bunch of iguanas, but is also where a lot of the Victoria’s Secret photo shoots are done! ...and where travel bloggers like to play with drones. 😂 . Have you seen clearer waters than these!? . #turksandcaicos #providenciales #gansevoortturksandcaicos #provodreamtours #iguanaisland #spon #girlswhodrone #dronestagram #drone #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #tlpicks #vacations
This #mondaymotivation is to start saving all of your money so you can take a vacation in paradise this summer, and check out @gansevoortturks new Pink Bar! 🍾🏝💖 . I especially loved staying here because you have access to the clear waters of the Atlantic, and Koolaid blue Caribbean Sea! 🤤 . Check it all out on my Stories and stay tuned for my first actual good drone footage 😂 . #gansevoortturksandcaicos #gansevoort #pinkbar #summerwater #gansevoortpinkbar #sponsored #roséallday #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #travelblogger

Sun👏🏼day👏🏽Fun👏🏾Day👏🏿 in Turks and Caicos, with literally Rosé all day, even on my floatie! 🍾🐬💖 . Out of all the places I’ve been to across all 7 continents, this has by far been the place with the clearest most mesmerizing water. Like, I haven’t done my hair or make up in days bc I can’t get out of the water, and the boat had to come get me earlier bc I ran so far down the beach on Iguana island 🦎and refused to go back 😂 . If you want to experience this incredible paradise, you have to check out the @gansevoortturks 😻! See more of it on my Stories including where I’m currently watching the Brazil vs Switzerland game in the Brazilians’ Gansevoort VILLA! 🇧🇷 . . #gansevoortturksandcaicos #pinkbar #gansevoortpinkxsummerwater #summerwater #proudly #sponsored #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #vacations #worldcup2018 #roseallday #sundayfunday
Hope you all have an adventurous (slash safe) weekend! 🌎💃🏼💖 . I’m off to a Caribbean island I’ve never been before and I hear it’s like Hawaii, so if you have any adventure tips for Turks and Caicos, let me know! . Photo is of the Blue Grotto in Malta...and I “had” to take a selfie bc my drone ran out of batteries. 🤷‍♀️ . #malta #bluegrotto #selfietography #friyay #weekendwanderlust #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel
Happy first day of the World Cup!!! I may not strike you as a soccer/football fan, but I actually played for 15 years, plus love seeing the world come together (not to mention scouting all the cute guys for my next bf 😂)! ⚽️ 🌎 💖 . Since the US isn’t playing, I’m choosing to root for all the countries I’ve been to that are playing...which is pretty much all of them. And obviously especially Portugal, because @cristiano. 🤤 Today my team is Russia...since they’re currently winning. 😂 . What country are you from and who are you rooting for?? . Also, a few people ask me how I’m so in shape when I travel so much...answers will be on my Stories plus a blog post, but the soccer playing and obsession with adventures is a good hint! . Photo location is in Santa Monica from my Pop Up Bootcamp with @tripvalet ! . #FIFA #worldcup #worldcup2018 #cristianoronaldo #tomboy #soccergirl #oleoleole #globalcitizen #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel

If you only get one life, why not choose to make it as fun as possible? 💃🏼 🍩 🏝 . . . It took me a while to grasp that idea, since I used to think by 30 I was supposed to be married with kids and constantly worrying about money, but once I did I found myself running around the world, disco cup in hand, with a self-made successful career I run from my phone and laptop, reading articles about how millennials are doing all that traditional stuff later. I knew it was unconventional, but that seems to be the trend these days! So don’t be afraid to be different or to allow yourself to have fun! (Although, I’m pretty sure that when I do have a travel baby not much will change besides my amount of luggage 🤣) . I’m also pretty convinced that traveling makes you age backwards, healthier, and happier. So you’re welcome for saving you tons of moolah on Botox, gym memberships, and therapy 💁‍♀️(but I’m obv not a doctor so don’t fully listen to me 🤣) . What do you do to live your best, most happiest life? 💖 . #donutcare #floaties #mexico #puertovallarta #millennials #digitalnomad #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #vacations #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #sonyalpha #sonyalphasclub #sonya7riii
#MondayMotivation :: Be more like the sun. Shine your brightest every day, give it your all from the morning till night, reach as many places as possible in the world, and make others happy. ☀️ . As someone who has been fortunate enough to self create die hard determination, which led to me seeing the world and becoming a global citizen, what makes me the most happy is when I can share travel with others so that they can feel the change and happiness that experiencing it brings. That’s why I’m so happy to represent a company like @tripvalet that not only provides legitimate discounts, but does so many giveaways and trip deals that it gives people an opportunity to experience the world themselves and not just through photos. . The $200 Mexico trip was for real, and hearing in person from someone who normally travels on a backpacker budget that they’re paying the same amount for a 5 day 5 Star all inclusive trip was really amazing. (Check my recent tagged pics to hear what she had to say!) . This is just the beginning too! Believe it or not we actually work more than relax on these “vacations” (though when you love what you do it’s not really work!) and I’m so very excited for you to see what incredible plans we have next to get you all traveling more next! . After all, the genuine reason why I continue to galavant around the world taking “selfies” is to show you what a happier life you can have by experiencing life in other places 😉 .

Finally made it to this Hidden Beach Island in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! It was on my bucketlist since I was here last October with @tripvalet ! . This time I made the whole TripValet team partake in my little bucketlist adventures, where we all had swim with life vests and helmets on under the rock wall in order to get inside and onto the beach. Wasn’t easy. But obv worth it! . You’d think I’d run out of bucketlist checks but I just keep thinking of more! Who has some really good ones that I haven’t done yet?? . Official name of this place is the “Love Beach” on Las Marietas 🏝 See videos from it on TripValets IG that I’m taking over today! . #hiddenbeach #wanderlustweekend #bucketlist #puertovallarta #lasmarietas #islandlife #lovebeach #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #tripvalet #brandambassador #mexico #selfietography #goprogirl #goprotravel

Wishing it was still last week, when I was running around on my “fun day” in Malta in overalls and sneaks that I picked up in Milan. 💖 . By that I mean you don’t always get all fun days when you travel as your job! It’s a lot of work, and as your own boss you have to literally force yourself to “take a day off”...even though clearly here I’m still taking photos AKA working 🙈😂 . But the more you do it, the more you find out what your idea of fun is. I love taking photos, and I’m starting to love traveling with other people as well. . That being said, I’m REALLY excited for my 40 person fiesta in Mexico this week with @tripvalet , where I’ll be proving that work days can also be fun days! And then I’ll probably just stay in Mexico because...summer. ☀️ . Anyone else wanna come hang in Mexico for a bit? 😜 . PS: I’m posing like this so I can hide my phone w camera remote on it behind my head, and I’m so far from town to escape the crowds and bc it was the only way to get that church in the same pic as the boats. . #malta #marsaxlokk #overalls #funday #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #sonyalphasclub #sonyalpha #sonya7riii #tripvalet #brandambassador #ootd #traveltuesday
Popeye the Sailor Man 💪🏼 He Lives in a ....Really windy little harbor on the northwest side of Malta. 🌬😂 . While the actual story location was not in Malta, the movie set was, and is still there, except now it’s turned into a small theme park that you can go explore...or take pics of from the cliffs where I am...just be careful with that wind! . As you can see, my facial expressions don’t hide anything...here I am both annoyed and a bit worried that the wind is going to either blow me or my new camera over. . That being said, this should explain why I’m still not doing any stories following my recent surgery. Like you do not want to see the faces I’m making right now. I’m doing you all a huge favor. So instead...are there any questions or stories you’d like to hear that I can do with a face mask filter? 🙈😂💖 . Thank you also to everyone who sent me love, good vibes, funny memes, and legit worried DMs about why I hadn’t posted a story in two days...you are all my personal motivation and I’d be really sad without you! 💖 . #popeyesvillage #malta #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #travelblogger #selfietography #sonyalphasclub #sonya7riii #sonyalpha #fearlessfemale
Good vibes only ☀️ Hope you’re all having a fantabulous weekend! Let me know what you’re up to! . My weekend won’t be too great as I’m getting a wisdom tooth surgically removed, so please send me some good vibes and things to smile about while I’m in a hella pain! 😭🤕💖 . 👗by @shopraga . #malta #gozo #sunset #wiedilmielah #solotravel #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #travelinspo #goodvibesonly #sonyalphasclub #sonyalpha #sonya7riii
Would you jump into this blue hole? Would it help if you couldn’t see how tiny the divers look below? 😱😂🙋‍♀️ . So this spot actually used to be one of the most iconic views in Malta — the Azure Window, but it crumbled last year during a storm. To me, seeing a blue hole was way cooler anyway...but if only I would have been allowed to cliff dive into it! . This was the main attraction I wanted to see on Gozo, and was why I stayed at a B&B I found on @tripvalet literally right next to it! I didn’t dive, because I already know what’s in a blue hole (not much), and obv bc I prefer views from high above anyway! 😻 . Blog post for Malta will be up this weekend!

Trying to maintain a healthy diet while traveling can be tricky...so I put a @wolosnacks protein bar in my gelato...problem solved! 🤔🍦🍫🙋‍♀️ . Did I mention that they taste like they could actually be a gelato topping? One scoop of salted caramel, one scoop of pistachio, topped with a little Cocoa Crunch, and you're in heaven! . BTW! Don’t forget to recycle your Wolo wrappers and also any plastic gelato spoons that you’re given! Italy is great for having specific trash and recycling bins everywhere so please use them!! Please share your best responsible travel tips for everyone as well! ♻️ 🌏 💖 . #wolosnacks #wanderbar #traveltips #cinqueterre #vernazza #italy #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #brandambassador #travelblogger
I call this, “Mermaid out of Water”. 🧜🏼‍♀️ ☀️ 😱 But really I was loving having my own little sun-rock and crystal pool! . Originally I was going to Ramla Bay, AKA the Red Sand Beach on Gozo, but when I saw how crowded it was I decided to hike then climb down to these boulders by the sea 😻 . This was just a short drive from the affordable, cute, B&B I found on @tripvalet , which was all part of my plan to get there early before it got too packed! . Have you ever felt a personal win for getting somewhere early before the crowds? . #malta #gozo #ramlabay #redsandbeach #solotravel #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #tripvalet #brandambassador #sonyalphasclub #sonyalpha #sonya7riii
Happy Memorial Day to all my US friends! While I hope you are all enjoying your day off, I also hope you will take a few moments to honor what this holiday is for — remembering those who have fought (and according to me, also those who are currently fighting) for the freedom of your country, AKA for you to have alllllll of the most sought after privileges in the world, that you probably don’t even notice! . I’ll admit that before I started traveling, I saw holidays like these as an excuse to party. I used to think “Ugh yeah I’m from America, so what?” But having been all around the world and seeing how much other people would give to have my US citizenship has been a real eye opener. It makes me tear up to think people like my grandpa risked their lives, we’re tortured, and are still mistreated so that I could have the freedom to basically do whatever I want. . I travel with my grandpas ex-POW hat at all times (even to Antarctica and Kilimanjaro) not only to remember him, but to always remember how damn lucky I am to be American. . I used to think other countries made fun of American travelers, but four years of traveling and 84 countries later, and I can assure you most people look at me like I’m a celebrity when I say I’m from the US. I used to try to blend in, now I proudly flaunt my navy blue passport. I’m proud of the privileges we have and I value them so much and am so grateful for the people who fought to make them possible. . I just wish all of the US could see this point of view, because if they did, there would probably be a lot more happiness and peace going on. 🇺🇸💪🏼💖 . Second photo is the other side of mi abuelos hat where I collect pins from countries when I can find them 💖 . #memorialday #mmdw #worldpeace #globalcitizan #useyourwordsforgood #onelove #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #worldtraveler #solotravel #malta #valletta #sonyalphasclub #sonyalpha #sonya7riii
Behind the Scenes:: Currently in Malta trying to get used to using my new fancy @sonyalpha a7r iii camera for my @mylifesatravelmovie account, that requires a tripod, instead of the tiny GoPro and selfie stick that I’ve been using for the past 4 years.... . Slightly more awkward and embarrassing setting up a full tripod, but the photo quality and feeling like the actual professional I am (😂) is totally worth it! ....but to be honest I still went and found a place where there were no people to watch me. 😂 . In other BTS news, I 100% changed outfits in a restaurant bathroom for this photo, almost flung my phone in the water trying to get a jumping shot using the phone remote to take the pic, got my Ray Bans stolen this morning at hotel reception, and am still having a fabulous last day here in Malta on my “day off” (yet clearly still working), where I fully intend on drinking wine and riding the tourist hop on hop off bus around all day which is an absolute relaxing delight after trying to drive a manual car on the opposite side through tiny alleys and roundabouts all week. 💁‍♀️ 🍷 🚌 🤓 .

In a perfect world, all Sunday Funday’s would include cliff diving into azure Mediterranean Sea pools. Do you agree? 😻💙💦 . This is St. Peter’s Pool in the south-west of Malta...harder to get to which = way less people! Also where the famous cliff diving dog was discovered! Definitely add it to your to-go list! . Where will you be hanging (pun intended) this holiday weekend? 😎 . (Side note per usual: it took me forever to get here in the manual rental car and faulty gps, plus a one-car road for both directions and a hike down to the pool, but all totally worth it! . Also, for those who love to try to pick out things in everything — I am not sunburnt. I am Cuban and I am wearing SPF 100, this is just what my skin does before turning luxuriously tan overnight. 😘) #sundayfunday #malta #stpeterspool #marsaxlokk #cliffjumping #cliffdiving #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #mediterranean #tlpicks #natgeotravel
#Repost @mylifesatravelmovie with @get_repost ・・・ Just gunna leave some good vibes right here for your Friday 💦🍍☀️ . That water looks like that in real life, and is what this Blue Lagoon is famous for — I even didn’t crop a swimmer in the background so you can see how clear the water is! 😻 . Also, shout out to the oz IG couple who gave me their pineapple for a photo after they left (I can’t find your IG so plz comment so I can tag you!) . You can only get here by boat, so I purposely chose a hotel on @tripvalet that was near the port to get there as early as possible before the big crowds arrived! . Have you ever chosen a hotel specifically because it was close to where you wanted to be early in the morning?? . #bluelagoonmalta #malta #cominoisland #gozo #pineapplesofinstagram #goodvibes #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #friyay #travelgoals #sonyalphasclub #sonyalpha #sonya7riii #tripvalet #brandambassador

Welcome to Mediterranean paradise, MALTA! My 84th country that I’m currently considering extending my stay on 😂😻💙 . Aside from the stunning blue waters, there’s adorable towns, breathtaking basilicas, and a lot of younger travelers, which makes it way more enjoyable as a solo traveler! I’ve already met two groups of people! . The only downside for me as you probably already saw on my Stories, is that I’m terrible at driving manual (and hate doing it after my car flip) 🤦🏼‍♀️ . But the car is necessary since I’m going to as many different areas as possible (car = closet), and booking last minute hotels on @TripValet as I go! I even found a great discount for the Kempinski on Gozo where I’m currently at now! . I’ve seen most of your DMs for Malta tips, but please share them in the comments for everyone else as well! Also...tips for magically becoming a pro at shifting into first gear are welcome to. 👌 . 📷 shot by ME! Yay! With a Sony a7r iii on a tripod and phone remote in my hand! . #malta #bluelagoonmalta #bluelagoon #mediterranean #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #sonya7riii #sonlyalpha #sonyalphasclub #selfietography #tripvalet #brandambassador
Well played Aperol. Well played. Locking in some prime photo real estate across from the iconic Duomo in Milan, that just so happens to perfectly contrast your cocktails. 🧐👏🏼🍹🏛🙋‍♀️ . I actually went here 3 times while I was in Milan for the view with my aperitifs (all you can eat food if you buy one drink), but waited till @anna.everywhere got in on a layover to help me snap the pic with my new cam so I wouldn’t have to put the tripod down in a crowd! We also “had to” have a drink at 11am (specifically with no plastic straws) to get our pics since our train to the airport was at 12! #priorities 📷 . Luckily though she had a hotel right near the Duomo that we stored our bags at. That being said, if you’re only in Milan for a layover or couple days, you might want to consider this area! It can be pricey but @tripvalet has some good discounts!

That awesome moment when you’re halfway through an impromptu hike and realize you’ve stashed a spare @wolosnacks protein bar in your camera bag!!! 🤤 Somehow the view even matched the wrapper! .

After a week of rain, we’re all jumping of joy for sunny days!! Thanks for the tag Alyssa! • #Repost 📸 @mylifesatravelmovie You know you’re a professional selfie-tographer when you nail a mid-air jump shot in an empty monument in the country’s capitol. 😜💃🙋‍♀️📸 . Every time I passed by this small over-looked Memorial it was empty, yet it’s so beautiful and holds a lot of meaning (it’s the freaking Washington DC Memorial!)...AKA the perfect place for me to put my camera on photo time lapse and jump up and down till I got the perfect shot 😂 .

#MondayMotivation :: “Attitude is the difference between an adventure and an ordeal”. How do you typically respond to problems and obstacles? . I personally love when things go wrong because I get bored without a challenge 😜 . Oh, the weather won’t be sunny for another two days? Sweet, I’ll park my ass here and get a last minute @tripvalet hotel until it does. Oh, we missed the train by a minute? But look how cute this random stop is tho! Oh, this cute Italian guy can’t speak English and I can’t speak Italian? Let’s see what it’s like to text each other in person via Google Translate. (All really happened) .

Unique and original Vernazza Portrait Thanks @mylifesatravelmovie - If they thought I was crazy for hiking in a dress, I wonder what they’d say about me climbing a roof in one. 😂💃🙋‍♀️ #adventuressinadress #cinqueterre #vernazza #flowydresses #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #fearlessfemale #tlpicks #tripvalet #brandambassador - #vernazza #cinqueterre #cinqueterresun #cinqueterreportaits
BEHIND THE SCENES: The reality of the situation and seemingly perfect photos I’ve been posting on @mylifesatravelmovie this week...So there’s me in the dress and flats that people were so astonished to see while walking this super easy pathway that I guess you could claim as a hike. I shouldn’t judge since most people’s hiking abilities aren’t as ninja mountain goat as mine, but I’m just saying, people need to not judge bc I’m not wearing the stereotypical outfit you’d see in a hiking ad. . To give you an idea, the people you see in the photo are wearing what most people were, and most of them were staring at me and my equally as fashionable guy friend (who by the way is standing on a rock to take this pic of me with my new Sony a7r iii)...one women even attempted making a comment! . She said, “Are you really going to hike in that?!” And before I could think, my response was, “I just climbed Kilimanjaro, this is nothing”, to which she replied, “In those shoes?”, and of course I had to say, “They’re not hurting me, are they hurting you?” She gave up after that. . Anyway, my point is that this is the true behind the scenes that we have to deal with quite often...it’s annoying, but it’s never enough to make us not do what we love. No matter how ridiculous we look. . I say that about the pose I’m trying to do to get a “flowy windy look”, not the outfit 😜 . Anyway, just thought I’d share what really was happening! Oh also I stayed here 2 extra nights waiting for the weather to clear up. Hence why this unedited photo is not as bright as the others. . #behindthescenes #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #influencer #cinqueterre #vernazza #italy #idgaf
If they thought I was crazy for hiking in a dress, I wonder what they’d say about me climbing a roof in one. 😂💃🙋‍♀️ . I got permission from my @tripvalet hotel before climbing out the window and scaling their roof, and they actually loved seeing the photos afterwards and said no one had ever thought to do that before. I told him it was easier to take selfies there than in the crowds, and probably safer than me flying the drone 😂 . I hope you all are going to have an adventurous weekend as well! Let me know what you get up to!! 💖 . #adventuressinadress #cinqueterre #vernazza #flowydresses #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #fearlessfemale #tlpicks #tripvalet #brandambassador
Will hike for views 🙋‍♀️ ...and cause a ruckus with tourists who think it’s appalling that I’d dare wear a dress with non-sneakers instead of pro hiking gear, and spend time taking photos of the beautiful destination I’m in. (And yes I really did say to someone, “Pfft I just hiked Kilimanjaro, this is nothing”)🤦🏼‍♀️😂 . I’m not going to waste time talking about haters, I’ve been dealing with them from the second I decided to travel solo as a woman 4 years ago, but I just want to say to everyone else, that yes there are people like this, and no matter who you are, how many countries you’ve been to, or followers you have, there’s always going to be someone who for no reason wants you to fail or feel bad. You need to just ignore them!! . I try to show the world in such a positive light, and it may appear as though everything is easy and fantastical, but the truth is that to do that, I also make myself an easy target for haters. We all do! But at the end of the day, it comes down to just being brave and continuing to live your dreams. . I will never stop wearing dresses, or hiking in flats (or no shoes), or doing what I want to do because some stranger looks at me funny or makes a rude remark. I will never feel too embarrassed to take a photo of myself because that’s how others are trying to make me feel, and I don’t want you ever to either. . If you ever encounter a negative person, situation, troll, etc, please feel free to vent to me, because trust me, I can relate! And in the moment, always remember that a smile and hair flip (and maybe blatant IG story filming) can solve any problem 😜 . I also want to thank all of you who always have my back when I get pissed off at a troll!! It’s not often, and usually I don’t give a damn, but when I do it’s really awesome to see how many people are really there for me! I love you guys!! 👊💖💖 . Also want to thank and give air hugs to everyone who leaves nice comments or messages on other people’s posts...saying nice things to a stranger is a level of awesome that we all need to make the world a better place! 💖💖💖 . #spreadlove #realtalk #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #sonlyalpha #sonya7riii #cinqueterre #vernazza
My favorite adventures are the unplanned ones, where I can just look up a last minute train or flight to the next place, and book a hotel on the way, exploring random new places as I go 💃🌎💖 . It helps that I’m really good at finding deals on great hotels using @tripvalet ’s map feature; for example, that’s how I found that red hotel near the beach that I stayed at, and it had a better discount than any other site! . It was all part of my plan to be nearby the iconic waterfront for when the sun finally came out so I could run out and snag a pic with my new camera (this was at 8pm!), how do you think I did??📷🤷‍♀️ . #vernazza #vernazzacinqueterre #cinqueterre #sonya7riii #sonlyalpha #italy #tripvalet #brandambassador #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #tlpicks #beautifuldestinations
The time has finally come!!! ...for me to get a professional camera 📷 😜🙋‍♀️ . I’ve gotten away with using an action camera or iPhone for the past 5 years of traveling and building a career, but I’m so proud and excited to start snapping with a @sonyalpha a7r iii and taking things to a new level! 📷💪🏼💃 . Yes I purposely chose a picturesque destination to go to first to learn how to use it, so welcome to Cinque Terre, on the northern Mediterranean coast of Italy! 😻🇮🇹 . Fun fact: my first ever freelance paid travel writing assignment was to write an article about Cinque Terre even though I hadn’t been there before...and now having been there I can say writing about somewhere you haven’t been is a terrible idea! 😜 . So many interesting tips and photos coming atcha!! 💖💖 . #gamechanger #sonyalpha #sonya7riii #cinqueterre #manarola #italy #mediterranean #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #entrepreneur #digitalnomad #travelblogger #tlpicks #natgeotravel
Chapter 4: I got a VERY different glimpse of a culture than I normally do, because instead of just observing it, I was actually living it. . I was invited into people’s homes for dinners on their patios, followed by after dinner drinks that I’d try my hardest to stay out late (as in midnight) for. . I got used to expecting to spend more than 2 hours at every meal, not trying to shop between 1-4pm, and to wait patiently until someone could translate conversations to me (and also regretting not trying to learn more Italian before coming). . I won’t deny that it was difficult at times since my world is so fast paced, and work-driven. But I definitely can say it was like living in a movie for a week, and it’s one I can’t wait to replay over and over again! . #projectexpat #reggioemilia #viaroma #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #italy #igersreggioemilia #bologna #parma #girlslovetravel #wearetravelgirls #tlpics
Behind the Scenes: When things do not go according to your perfect travel plans.....just got to the picture-perfect area in Italy called Cinque Terre, and not only is it pouring rain, but everything is closed, so we can’t eat! Actually the first part is way worse, because obv if you’ve seen my main account @mylifesatravelmovie , you know my photos are dependent on good weather, and my career is dependent on my posts! 😱 . But whatever. Not as bad though as my little incident last week when my computer completely crashed and I had to buy a new one, which is fine, except the keyboard is Italian, and I just found out the warranty only works at Apple stores in Italy. Maybe I’ll just move here? 🤷‍♀️ . But to be honest, none of this really upsets me. I’ve learned to take on any obstacle that comes at me and laugh about it or just fix it. I use rainy days as extreme work days, and if I break something or have to pay more than I’d like, i just remind myself to work extra hard to make the money back. . It does help that my schedule is flexible since I’ll probably just stay here a few extra days until it decides to be sunny, and of course it helps too that I don’t have many expenses and have been able to save all of my money for times like when I break a laptop. 🤦🏼‍♀️ . And of course, if all else fails....wine and gelato. . #travelproblems #behindthescenes #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #digitalnomad #travelblogger #keepcalmanddrinkwine #italy #cinqueterre #laspezia
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to my favorite human on Earth, and my biggest supporter/fan (clearly hence her IG name 😂) @mylifesatravelmom ! 👯‍♀️🌎 . This woman not only raised 4 crazy kids (I was and always will be a rebel who listens to no one) on her own, but doesn’t even flinch when I tell her some of the crazy/dangerous things I’m doing solo abroad or places I want to go that many parents would respond “hell no”. Think about it...she’s been perfectly fine with her daughter traveling solo to over 80 countries, and most of the time she has no clue where I’m going until I put it on my Stories! That’s a brave woman right there! . In fact, swipe left and you’ll see she’s just as fearless as me! ...or maybe I get it from her, since I definitely got the travel gene from her (she was a flight attendant in her 20’s!) . Anyway, I am so grateful to have such an amazing parent (singular, I only have one but she has acted as both my whole life), and it brings me great joy to finally be able to take her traveling! Especially since I’m never in town for holidays and instead of a personal card I give her personal IG posts that 200k people can read 🤷‍♀️ . I hope today everyone tells their mothers how much they love and appreciate them, and if you’re not planning to...just imagine squeezing a football out of a hole in your body and rethink your decision. . Happy Mother’s Day mamas! . #happymothersday #mothersday #mylifesatravelmom #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #belize #familyvacation #motherdaughter #travelgene
Chapter 2: Trying to blend in. Even though dressing head to toe in Italian fashion is probably a dead giveaway since during the day most people just wear jeans 😂🤷‍♀️ . I actually was given clothing my first day in Reggio Emilia, at a “free trading market” where you simply bring what you don’t want of your own, and take something else. The same woman who was running it (@t.urban_ ) is who you saw in my Stories who made me the beautiful turban and earrings in this pic, and another dress! 👗 . I’ve noticed people are very giving here (especially with food omg), which is sometimes a rare thing to find! I also noticed that everything closes from about 1-4pm so you have to shop before or after that time. For those who have a 1 hour or less lunch break at work, how do you feel about that? 🤦🏼‍♀️ . Check my Stories from today to see how Parmesan cheese is made, and me dressed as a scientist! 🧀👩🏼‍🔬 . 📷: @marcellafava_photographer #reggioemilia #viaroma #projectexpat #italy #visititaly #italianfashion #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #tlpicks
Alyssa Ramos in via Crispi a Reggio Emilia #gazzettare #alyssaramostravels
Incontri fortunati a Reggio Emila...Alyssa Ramos! #gazzettare #alyssaramostravels
Chapter 1: The day I arrived in Reggio Emilia to begin my attempt to casually transplant into an Italian artist community, I immediately learned a few things... . First was that coffee is essential, second was that people my age drink beer over wine (imagine my shock), and third was that it’s normal for everyone to order their own pizza...and completely finish it! . I also learned to never dare talk about fruit and pizza in the same sentence (I had to ask their opinion on pineapple pizza), and that it’s also very normal to talk about other food while eating your current food. . That being said, it seems like everyone’s appetite is as big as this lion’s, and since mine is not, I earned the nickname “Uccellino” AKA “Little Bird”. 🤷‍♀️🤣🐥 . By the way, in case you’re wondering, just like most countries abroad, almost everyone speaks English. (It shocks me when people are scared to travel bc they won’t know the language!” . My apartment is on the street called Via Roma, which is the heart and soul of this artist community. You see everyone you know when you walk around, and you have dinner at each other’s houses. . It’s not so much about sightseeing as it is seeing others...unless you’re an outsider like me who thinks everything is adorable! (Or “que bello!”) ————- Btw my Stories are ahead of my posts, but DEFINITELY watch the Live from today of me screwing up the pasta I learned how to make the second mama Dina left for 5 minutes 🤦🏼‍♀️😂 . 📷: @marcellafava_photographer #projectexpat #viaroma #reggioemilia #italy #wannabeitalian #globalcitizen #worldpeace #mylifesatravelmovie #mylifesatravelnovel #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel

Once upon a time there was a girl from a small town who wondered if there was more in life than just staying in one spot and doing as she was told. . It wasn’t long (actually it was) until she said BYE and ventured off into the world on her own to see what she could find. She went to all the continents, climbed some of the highest mountains, and dove deep in the sea, collecting memories and knowledge until she turned into a citizen of the world. . Then one day while visiting “home”, it dawned on her that many people still see people from other countries as extremely different from themselves, and she wondered (as she often does) how to push her limits even farther to show people the real world and how we aren’t so different. . So she decided to go live in Italy for a month, starting in a small non-touristic city called Reggio Emilia! . She was taken in by a community of artists (photographers, videographers, painters, designers, musicians, etc) and shown how they live life in Italy, and especially in this particular artists community! . It’s been 3 days and she’s already learned how food, talking, and time are valued a lot differently (in a good way), and an entire sign language of gestures. . She also thinks she will stop talking in 3rd person now 😜 So anyway! This is a very special project to me and I’d love for you to follow along with it and its outcome! Please let me know if you have any questions about it or what it’s been like as an American transplanting into an Italian community! 💖🇮🇹 . 📷by my talented host @marcellafava_photographer . #reggioemilia #viaroma #projectexpat #likealocal #globalcitizen #italy #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #dreamer #solotravel

Another mindblowingly beautiful destination in Turkey (that I think should be a World Wonder of Nature) is Pamukkale AKA “Cloud Castle”! ☁️ 🏰😻 . This beautiful white natural infinity pool is one of many “terraces”, and it’s not snow or ice, it’s sedimentary rock made from mineral deposits from the hot springs. That means that most of the little pools are warm! 🤓 . If I haven’t convinced you to go to Turkey yet, I’d like to also mention that I just checked hotel prices for Istanbul on @tripvalet , and found up to 71% off on 3-5 star hotels (nightly prices starting at $30!) Just sayin’! 😜 . #turkey #visitturkey #pamukkale #worldwonders #tripvalet #brandambassador #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #selfietography #hotsprings #natgeotravel #tlpicks
#MondayMotivation :: Stop believing negative things about other places and people when you haven’t walked a day in their shoes or attempted learning about their culture. Joke will be on you when you miss out on seeing some of the most beautiful places on Earth! 🌎😜 . I just had a layover in Turkey and it reminded me of when everyone told me not to go last year and I went anyway. Now of course they all have nothing to say and I have one more amazing travel experience to talk about 😜 . I wasn’t scared because I know that we are all more similar than we may think, and I absolutely love proving that. That’s why this week I’m doing something I’ve never done before and living with locals in a small town in Italy to see what life would be like if I were Italian and part of an artist community🇮🇹 🍕🍷 . I’m actually teaching the bloggers here about how I got started, and how to be a digital nomad, but if you’d like to learn too, don’t forget about my next Bootcamp in Mexico with @tripvalet next month!

Hope you’re all having a fun and adventurous weekend!! Wrote my blog post for Guatemala on the plane (to Italy) including how to get to this most famous Mayan ruin - Tikal! 😻🌎 . I was actually shocked I was allowed climbing the ones in Belize, since you can’t touch these! . What are you up to this weekend?

When I first started traveling solo I’d only wear dark clothing and athletic wear, because I made the mistake of listening to stereotypes about what “real travelers look like”...After 83 countries I’d definitely call myself a real traveler, and have realized I’d rather wear the bright colored dresses and jumpers I love rather than caring what others think! 🙋‍♀️💃 . A lot of people ask where I get my dresses (and how I pack all of them) and the answer is usually from affordable websites so I can get a bunch of them! . This one and the others on my Stories are from @sheinofficial and you can get an extra 20% off using mylifes20! .

Happy 2 YEAR Anniversary of traveling FULL TIME to ME!!! Wild and free like these creatures in the sea! 🙋‍♀️🌎💖 . Although I started travel blogging 4 years ago, I made the leap to being fully nomadic on this exact day 2 years ago when I was forced to choose between putting a deposit down on another apartment, or living my dream to travel the world and post about it. . I chose to travel, and two years later I’ve been to over 50 new countries (83 total), all 7 continents, 7 World Wonders, 7 Wonders of Nature, Kilimanjaro, etc etc. Not to mention have been fortunate enough to be one of the few who turns their dreams into a successful career! (Shameless plug: learn how to do that by attending one of my Blogger/Influencer bootcamps! . I’m proud to say I’ve gone to most of these places solo, taking my own photos, flying my own drone, shooting video and photo in the air, on ground, and under the sea. I wanted to prove it was possible for anyone to do it, and I did, and I love more than anything when you guys tell me I’ve helped you do the same. . People ask if I get homesick, or “how long do you think you’ll keep doing this” and my answer is always the same — “You mean, how long will I continue succeeding at my DREAM CAREER that took me 4 years to build and now allows me to make money while traveling the world? I hope FOREVER!” . There’s still so much world to see, people to meet, and content to share to inspire you to do the same. Thank you all so much for merely looking at the photos of my journey and shenanigans, it’s you guys that keep me going at it! 🙏💖 .

After all that diving, snorkeling, and free diving to take selfies with sharks and turtles, you better believe I needed to replenish my energy! 💁‍♀️🦈🐢 I always carry @wolosnacks bars with me everywhere for that exact reason, since I'm always on an active adventure, and I'm always hungry!

My idea of Sunday Funday: trying to get a selfie with a shark 🦈🧜🏼‍♀️📷😂 . Not as easy as the turtle since they’re faster, but the video footage I have of me trying to keep up with them and getting knocked around by about 10 of them is pretty awesome. Think I’ll go ahead and post that later! 😜 . Speaking of fun days, we still have a few spots left for mine and @tripvalet ‘s Mexico Escape with options for a regular #mylifesatravelTRIBE group trip or the Influencer Bootcamp! DM if interested!! . Oh and in other news I’ve sprained my ankle climbing a tree. So have to put El Salvador on hold, but will be off to Europe next week! . 📷More editing magic by @the_salty_stoke ! #sharkbait #sharkbaithoohaha #mermaid #belize #ambergriscaye #sharkrayalley #snorkeling #freedive #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #tripvalet #brandambassador #underwaterphotography
Learned how to free dive specifically for moments like this...To hang out with turtles while they eat lunch on the ocean floor! 😻🐢🧜🏼‍♀️ . I’ve never made claims that I’m a mermaid, but I’m just going to throw it out there that when I finally got back on the boat the tour guides said, “Yo you’re like a fish.” And the other said, “Nah man, she’s a mermaid!” 😀🧜🏼‍♀️🙋‍♀️ . But to be honest, I was never good at swimming until I started scuba diving!

Raise your hand if right now your favorite color is Belize-water-blue! 😂🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ . I literally could have been happy sitting by the water all day on Ambergris Caye, but you probably know I always opt for adventures...can’t wait to show you what I swam with IN that pretty blue water! 🦈🐢🐠😻 . We stayed in San Pedro which some may say is the touristy area, but it’s still really cute and a lot of fun! I found a discounted hotel on @tripvalet , which you can also see an example of how it works compared to other sites! . 👗 by @teeink . #ambergriscaye #belize #youbetterbelizeit #vacation #island #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #tripvalet #brandambassador #beautifuldestinations #shotonaniphone
I found the inland Blue Hole of Belize!! 😻💦🌿 . Be honest, would you trust me if I said “Follow me through this jungle, I heard there’s a cool underwater sinkhole cave (aka cenote), even though it may have been previously used for human sacrifices”. ?? . If you answered yes, you may want to check out my upcoming Mexico Group Trip with @tripvalet , where we’ll go to a secret beach on an island that’s INSIDE a cave! 😻 DM me if you’re interested! .

One last Mayan ruins shot to give you an idea of how massive this thing is (and how high I was standing two photos ago!) Zoom in to see the people way at the top! 😳😜🙋‍♀️ . This area was like a main marketplace for the Mayans that lived here thousands of years ago... although my imagination claims it was for the human sacrifices.... .

Had to show a close up of my traditional Mayan “Huipil” (the hand-woven top), since apparently it has spiritual significance and each one defines its owner....I wonder what it says about me...what do you think?? . One thing it should say is that I’m good at selfietography 😂 (aka taking my own pictures), which is one of many things I’m going to be teaching in the neighboring country of Mexico in June at my second Influencer Bootcamp with @tripvalet !! . This will be more in-depth than the very successful pop-up in LA, and will also include a 5 day all inclusive resort stay plus adventures!

I’m (Mayan Warrior) Queen of the World!! 👸🏼💪🏼 ...but please don’t pick me as a sacrifice! . Actually, the Mayan queens (and kings) would sacrifice their own blood at times but I won’t go into details until the blog post. . In short...I learned a lot about the ancient Mayans especially at these ruins in Belize called Xunantunich! This tour was one of the ones included in my @hamanasi_resort Package, and I’d highly recommend it! . Also picked up some traditional local handmade clothing and jewelry to really get a feel of the culture! The top will definitely be in my future global fashion online shop! 😻 . What are your favorite ways to learn about a culture? . #belize #xunantunich #mayanruins #mayans #hamanasi #mayanprincess #culture #globalcitizen #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #natgeotravel #tlpicks #travelstoke
HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!! 😻😙🌎 I am beyond thrilled to be celebrating Earth Day everyday, but especially so here in Belize which is filled with eco-friendly and sustainable initiatives! . This little tribute video starts with my current eco-friendly trip at @hamanasi_resort (including the dive I did with a friendly shark), and sneaks in some clips from a few other of my favorite places on earth, which are also places that need our help to remain healthy! . You’ll start with the Belize Barrier reef, then see things like Antarctica, Easter Island, and Indonesia, which are all affected by climate change, and also various places and animals in Africa which are in need of our help to preserve them and fight against poaching and captivity. . There are so many ways we can all do a little to help a lot (I swear I’m working on the blog post but its LONG), from cutting out usage of plastic and lowering intake of meat, to planting trees (or donating money to organizations that do) to offset our carbon foot prints. Even being conscious about staying at eco-friendly hotels, and doing things like not asking for fresh towels every day helps! I swear! You just need to be aware about it! . So again, Happy Earth Day to my favorite place in the universe...I hope we can all come together to make sure it sticks around for a lot longer than it’s predicted to! 🙏🌎💖 . #bethechange #earthday #iloveearth #earthday2018 #gogreen #ecofriendly #hamanasi #saveourseas #thelaststraw #stopsucking #belize #antarctica #barrierreef #easterisland #bali #indonesia #malawi #namibia #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel
Quick break after a loooonngg day of adventures in Belize with mi madre! 🇧🇿🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🌎 . One of the many things that makes @hamanasi_resort perfect for a mother-daughter trip is that it has packages that include adventures! Today we did the Mayan ruins which you can see on my Stories, including my mom keeping up with no sweat as I scale the massive structures (yes, you’re allowed to climb them). . On a serious note - you may or may not know this, but I grew up with a single mom and 3 siblings, and we never had much money, so Travel was never an option for us. I always said that I wanted to become successful enough to take my mom traveling, and am so incredibly happy and grateful that I can finally make that happen. 🙏💖 Anyone else share that dream? . #hamanasi #familyvacay #belize #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #islandlife #tlpicks #beautifuldestinations
