Serious question: have you ever thought about where peppercorns come from?? I honestly had never thought about it, but had a great time finding out today in Kampot, Cambodia! 🙀🌿🤯 . Turns out they grow on vines like little mini grapes, and you can eat them raw which is actually really good! Not as spicy as expected either! . This pepper farm was just one of the many impromptu stops we took on my Cambodia @busabout.official tour today, the rest included yet another watery cave, an infinity pool, and an English class session with some local kids! . All will be on my Stories as soon as I walk off the huge bowl of Amok I just ate, and you can also swipe left to see a close up of the peppercorns! . #cambodia #kampot #kampotpepper #kampotpepperplantation #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #travelpresets #sonyalpha #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub #natgeotravel
Flashback Friday to when I chased a waterfall and it turned into a flash flood...😳 Havasu Falls in Arizona is normally bright blue, and you can camp around it...just maybe check the weather first.. Happy Friday everyone! 💁🏼🌎📷💖 . #havasufalls #havasupai #arizona #roadtrip #fbf #mylifesatravelmovie #travelblogger #solotravel
Lake Bled is definitely one of the highlights of my trip with @interraileu. The crystal clear blue water, the island in the middle and the surrounding mountains make it such an surreal place. Too bad I did spend only two nights in Slovenia but I will definitely revisit someday to explore more of this beautiful country 💗. _____________________ #createyourownstory #interraileu #spon #interrail #eurotrip #justgoglobal #justgoglobalgoesinterrail #visitslovenia #topsloveniaphoto #slovenia #lakebled #bled #ifeelslovenia #igslovenia #slovenia2018 #slovenia 🇸🇮 #mylifesatravelmovie #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #lonelyplanetnl #girlslovetravel #traveldeeper #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #teamkaptainkenny #neverstopexploring #contiki #letsgoeverywhere #womanwhotravel
The best way to end a day of exploring Bosnia Herzegovina? Swimming at the Kravice falls 🙌🏼 Good to know: if you're not staying in Bosnia Herzegovina you can also visit the falls on a daytrip from Croatia or Montenegro 😊. _____________________ #visitbosniaherzegovina #bosniaherzegovina #kravice #kravicefalls #waterfalls #mylifesatravelmovie #wearetravelgirls #visitbalkan #dametraveler #balkan2018 #sheisnotlost #justgoglobal #justgoglobalgoesinterrail #lonelyplanet #girlslovetravel #traveldeeper #wanderlust #earthlandscape #balkan #balkantrip #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #teamkaptainkenny #neverstopexploring #contiki #letsgoeverywhere #womanwhotravel
Can you believe this is Cambodia?! I guess I’m guilty of listening to stereotypes about Phnom Penh, and also assuming everything would look like Angkor Wat, but I’m SO GLAD I took it upon myself to explore on an open mindset! (I should clarify that people mostly said it was “dirty, unsafe, and poor” and my goal was to shed a better light)🙋‍♀️🌏😻 . I’m only on day three in my 86th country, but so far I’m so intrigued by the western touches, like rooftop infinity pools and wine gardens that I’ve seen. Yes, there is a lot of poverty, and I’m not trying to mask or deny it, but please consider how tourism in areas like this can help the locals. Speaking of which, everyone is so nice and seemingly happy despite a dark recent past which I hope you’ll take a moment to learn about on my Stories later — in short, Cambodia is one of the few countries who committed genocide on its own people. . But, back to trying to shed a positive light...What I love about SE Asia in general is how affordable places like this are to stay at! This is the @sunandmoonurbanhotel that I found on @tripvalet for only $66! Or you can do what I did and stay at a $16 two blocks away and then buy a drink here in exchange for the pool. You can find both of these hotels on the website and if you sign up you still can get entered to get a free spot on my Mexico trip in November for Dia de Los Muertos!

Did you know the greatest romance you can have is with yourself? A long time ago, I decided that I was going to put myself first as often as I could, that I'd be the hero of my own story, and that I'd always do what it took to make myself happy. You know what the problem is about what we want from our relationships? We are told that they're supposed to make us happy, that they're supposed to make us better. Can you imagine how difficult it for us human beings- mostly messed up in our own little ways, finding our way through life, stumbling, falling, rising again, to be able to always make somebody else happy? That's humanly impossible. But when you love yourself, take care of your emotions, and choose yourself, you keep the power. The power to be happy, content and calm, without burdening someone else with the responsibility of your happiness. You're in charge of you. It isn't selfish to choose happiness. It isn't selfish to identify the negative elements in your life and distance yourself from them. Less clutter equals clarity, and clarity is important. The greatest romance, as I've come to see, is the one I have with me. 😊
When people ask me if I get lonely traveling solo and I’m all like, “Huh?! Nah, look at all these elephants, puppies, and kittens I can hug!!!!” 😻😻😻 . Ok but seriously, I’ll stop posting my obsession with these rescue elephants (until the fundraiser is ready). Next stop is CAMBODIA on another @busabout.official tour, so stay tuned with my obnoxiously too real Stories to see it! 😻💖🤪 . Also, since it’s #TravelTuesday , name a place that’s at the top of your bucketlist!!!! Mine is: Everest Basecamp 😀 . #ellietography #savetheelephants #elephants #chiangmai #thailand #hugme #loveme #😻😂 #mylifesatravelmovie #travelblogger #animalwhisperer #elephantwhisperer #busabout #sonyalphasclub #animalplanet #natgeotravel #onelove #rescueelephants
#MondayMotivation :: Be grateful for everything you have, even the tiniest things like a place to rest your head. (Or a phone to even read this on)🙏🧝🏼‍♀️🗿💖 . My emojis were irrelevant but my message is not...I’ve been talking a lot lately about being grateful, not just for what I’ve been able to do and build, but for being alive in general considering some risky things I’ve done. I keep seeing more and more accidents where people don’t make it out as lucky as I did and it prompts me to keep saying: be careful, be happy, and please talk about things that cause you pain! . As always, I am all ears! (Or more realistically, eyes) Remain vigilant, and strive for happiness! 💖 . #strength #happygirl #motivationalquotes #buddha #laos #motivation #worldpeace #onelove #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #selfietography #sonyalpha #sonyalphasclub #sonyar7iii

Some Weekend Wanderlust : Ultimate pool party goals! Only thing missing is an elephant. 😻💙🤤 . I used to dream of one day having a house with a pool...now I dream of finding natural pools like these all over the world, and let’s be serious...no house pool will ever compare! . This was one of my favorite stops on my @busabout.official tour of Laos, enhanced by the awesome company of my group and guide, plus some new friends I met there who recognized me from here! (#humblebrag ) . As pretty as this pic is, I still have to give a disclaimer that where I am sitting is only about 3ft high from the pool below, and that you are allowed to swim here/climb up and down the pools, BUT! They are still wet limestone and a bit slippery, so please be careful if/when you go! 💙 . Also, if you’re wondering how I took this pic, my tripod is on the bridge, my phone/remote is in my left hand, and I edited it with an app which I have a tutorial for under Tips and Tricks on my blog! 😜 . Who’s feeling these jungle vibes??? . #kuangsifall #kuangsiwaterfall #busabout #busaboutasia #laos #visitlaos #luangprabang #chasingwaterfalls #pollypocket #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #plotagraph #sonyalpha #sonyar7iii #sonyalphasclub #selfietography #instagood #earthpics #natgeotravel
Friday vibes 😚💙 I’ve only seen blue cascading pools like these in a handful of places on Earth (that I’ve been to so far), and these, Kuang Si Falls in Laos, are definitely one of my favorites! . This was actually one of the top places I was looking forward to stopping at on my @busabout.official tour, and I even carried the swimsuit with me in my purse just waiting to wear it here 😂👙🙋‍♀️ . Have you ever seen cascading pools like this?? . Also, thanks for all of your questions on my Stories! I think I’ve gotten to 50 out of 700 but I love answering them so keep ‘em coming!! . #kuangsiwaterfall #kuangsifall #laos #busabout #busaboutasia #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #beautifuldestinations #earthporn #chasingwaterfalls #sonyalpha #sonyalphasclub #sonyar7iii
Being yourself, without inhibition or apology, is something that becomes easier with practice. We're too conditioned to care about how we're perceived, and the biggest mistake we can make is to begin seeing ourselves the way others see us. But I've learnt that we have to tune out the noise outside to tune in to who we are. Travel helps me do that like nothing else and maybe that's why I am hooked- it's when I am in my element, a hundred percent who I am, me with all my imperfections, but as authentic as it gets, and most of the time, I find that's enough. When are you living your best life?
That awesome moment when your @wolosnacks protein bar matches your environment! ⛰💦🍫😻 And yes, I purposely showed my new tattoo in the pic since the second one down is a waterfall! . Aside from being cute for matching your photos, these guys are very healthy and easy to order online now! . And speaking of my new tattoo...do you think I should extend it up the back of my arm? I have a lot of other bucketlist icons I’ve done that I can add...which do you think should get a spot?? #bucketlisttattoo #mylifesatravelmovie #wolosnacks #brandambassador #chasingwaterfalls #laos #sonyalphasclub #sonyalpha #wanderbar #kuangsiwaterfall
Another amazing, lesser-known but increasingly popular area of Indonesia is Komodo Island, which is actually one of the 7 Natural World Wonders! On the way to the island where the actual dragons are, you get to stop at this additional wonder, Padar Island, where you can see 3 different colored sand beaches from the hike at the top! This gem wraps up my takeover this week! Be sure to keep up with me, and TripValet for more travel inspo!! 💖💖 Alyssa @mylifesatravelmovie 💃🏼🌎🙋‍♀ #bali #indonesia #poolparty #mylifesatravelmovie #tripvalet
Tulum is one of my favorite places in the world for amount of adventures in one area! Well, technically it’s all of Riviera Maya, but most people recognize Tulum first... 😜 . Anyway! During my recent trip there, I did swimming with Whale Sharks and cenote diving, then went to Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum! See the full itinerary on my blog, linked in the Highlights under “Tulum”! #tulum #rivieramaya #mexico #whalesharks #mylifesatravelmovie
Algumas pessoas nunca vão te amar, não importa o que você faça. Outras pessoas nunca deixarão de te amar, não importa o que você faça. Qual você vai dar mais valor?
Indonesia has so much more to offer than just Bali! For example, we rented an entire (real!) pirate ship and sailed around the Gili Islands! Would you be down for this adventure?? ⛵️⚔️🗺@mylifesatravelmovie . #giliislands #indonesia #poolparty #mylifesatravelmovie #tripvalet
Pretty sure that in a past life, I lived in a jungle. Or an island. Or maybe that’s just me currently wishing I lived in a jungle that was on an island? Where do you think you once lived??🤔🌎🐒🌿🏝😻 . Anyway, this beautiful Khun Korn waterfall is in the jungle of Chiang Rai, and requires a moderate yet majestic 1 mile hike to get to. Full disclosure, I am sitting on a rock and the ground is right below my toe, and my very experienced @busabout.official guide is the one taking the picture! . ▪️▪️▪️▪️ PS! Don’t forget to take advantage of the July specials for new @tripvalet VIP members, because one of them will get you a 7 night stay in places like Thailand for only $417!! .

What you can typically expect from hotels and villas in Bali: refreshing pools, exotic ambiance, and of course, pool floaties!!! 👙💦☀️ . Tag some friends you want to float around with in Bali! 🌴@mylifesatravelmovie #bali #indonesia #poolparty #mylifesatravelmovie #tripvalet
Adventures are a reminder that we are more than the roles we slip into in the course of life. They remind us that we are alive for all the range of emotions that we can feel but forget to in everyday life as we go through routine. They remind us that the world is big and welcoming and incredible and all we have to do to experience that is take that first step out of what is comfortable and easy.
Indonesia is notorious for its exotic accommodations, many of which have these gorgeous beds right on the beach! My favorite was Tuggu, which you can find a discount for on TripValet! ❤️ #bali #indonesia #mylifesatravelmovie
#MondayMotivation :: Take control of making your dreams come true. You’re the only one who can and cannot make them happen! 🤔💪🏽🧞‍♀️ . This gorgeous, incredibly intricate White Temple was the first stop on my @busabout.official Northern Thailand and Laos tour, and it immediately blew my mind!! The artist who created it completely restored an abandoned temple to this masterpiece, and he had many more mind-blowing artworks on site...plus he was THERE!! 🤯😻Talk about making your dreams a reality! Just like I do with seeing the world and experiencing different cultures! . I know a lot of people wonder how I got started with traveling and making money to do so (the short answer is a ton of freelance work from my laptop), so if you want some more detailed answers, check out my latest blog post, or swipe up on my Stories! 🤓💻💖 . #chiangrai #chiangraithailand #whitetemple #dreamsdontworkunlessyoudo #mondaymood #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #selfietography #sonyalphasclub #sonya7iii

My ideal Sunday Funday 😻 Clearly this rescue elephant appreciated my mad mud mask making skills on her, because she kept randomly hugging me and humming! ...and also reciprocating the mud mask on my entire body. 🧖🏽‍♀️🐘💁‍♀️ . Now for some fun facts! Did you know that elephants can feel your energy through their trunks, and will respond to you accordingly? Did you know that they put dirt and mud on themselves to stay cool (literally)? Did you know there’s no way their bodies were meant to be ridden by humans (cough don’t ride them)? . More fun facts: This photo pretty much embodies everything about me; loving animals and nature, not caring about getting dirty, and living my best life while trying to help others do the same. That smile on my face is my eternal gratefulness for it all. . What are some fun facts about you or things in general? (and don’t say Coca Cola takes credit for Santa claus’ red outfit bc that’s currently debatable!) . Oh! And just heard the good news about some more awesome rescues! The boys trapped in the cave not far from where I was in Chiang Rai are currently being rescued!!!!! 🙏🙏🙏 . #chiangmai #thailand #maerimelephantsanctuary #animalwhisperer #elephantwhisperer #savetheelephants #noride #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #jane #sonyalpha #tlpicks #animalplanet #natgeotravel #chiangrai

Hey everyone! Alyssa here again from @mylifesatravelmovie , ready to share my favorite photos of Indonesia as I’m about to head back to SE Asia! . One of the most iconic photo sites in Bali right now is actually the entrance to a hotel! Would you like to stay here?

Not much can make me happier than seeing animals rescued and thriving, not allowed to be ridden or caged...and getting to have a mud party with them! (Can you tell which one was rescued from a circus??) 😻🐘🙋‍♀️🎉 . I was so impressed with this sanctuary’s story (@maerimelephantsanctuary ) and program, all of which you can see on my Stories, including my plans for a fundraiser to rescue another ride-elephant! Let me know if you want to help! . I found out about this sanctuary from a girl who works at the awesome hotel I found last minute on @tripvalet (for $25, boom!), after asking her about all the different ones that were recommended (thank you!) She said it was new and smaller and that they were currently working on rescuing another elephant, so I chose it to see how that process works. . Makes total sense; just buy the elephant from the bad people, then use tourism to fund keeping the rescued ones healthy! Let’s do it!!! 😀😀😀 . PS have I ever mentioned that I am an animal whisperer and that I actually have a biology degree bc I was going to be a veterinarian? So today was extra awesome for me to get to play with elephants and puppies all day omgidie!!!! #funfactsbyalyssa . #animalwhisperer #maerimelephantsanctuary #savetheelephants #noride #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #tripvalet #brandambassador #travelblogger #sonyalphasclub #chiangmai #thailand
When in Kotor, you can easily be swept off your feet just standing by the harbour and looking at the sun shining on the waters of the Adriatic, but these views of the Bay of Boka, well, they're something else. These have to be earned by climbing up to the Castle of San Giovanni, that under the scorching sun, isn't a walk in the park. But once you're up there, it's hard to take you eyes off this view and everything else is forgotten. If there's only one thing you can do in Kotor, let it be climbing up to see this view. Montenegro, you've unexpectedly taken my heart and kept it, and you've also reminded me why the Balkans are such an amazing place to be- yes they're beautiful but it's more than that, being here gives you a warm feeling, and I think it's because the people are so kind, friendly, open and respectful. I'm sure we'll meet again. ❤️ Heading home but not for too long because the adventures will continue. #flydubai #flydubaiwithme #visitmontenegro #instamontenegro #kotor #kotormontenegro
Happy 4th of July to all my fellow U.S. passport holders...even though I traded fireworks for a flight to Asia, am abroad 300+ days a year, consider myself a Global Citizen, and always get sick when I go back to the States, I still always acknowledge how much of a privilege it is to be a U.S. citizen! 😜💥🇺🇸 . How are you spending this holiday (or if you’re from another country, how do you celebrate your Independence Day?) . It’s 11:30pm for me here in Chiang Mai (photo is Ubud), and I have one full day here tomorrow, so please lmk if you have any top recommendations, or if you think I should see elephant sanctuaries, jungle, or temples! . Speaking of which, I’m actually really proud to see that every brochure for elephants has “No Riding” on it...it makes me feel that us using our voices on here for positive changes really works! 💪🏽🐘💖 . See 20 more of my animal selfies on my Highlights 😻....ok I think the 18 hour flight made me deleterious, I’ll stop talking now. . #chiangmai #thailand #4ofjuly #independenceday #ubud #bali #globalcitizen #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel

It’s better to spend a little more time and money recharging, than missing out on experiences because you’re exhausted, and let’s be serious, most of us usually are with our busy lives! .

For anyone who was interested in doing the tour through Antelope Canyon, here's an even cooler way to see the canyons - paddleboard through them! I rented one from @lakepowellpaddleboards and they gave me the map showing how to paddle through this canyon, which ends right at Lower Antelope, and also how to get to the deserted island that I camped on!

I'm convinced that happiness, the real kind, the kind that you think back to when life gets a bit rough and you're looking for a memory to guide you out of the temporary darkness, or you're drinking wine and listening to jazz and thinking about moments when you felt truly alive and for a change, everything was exactly as it was meant to be, that kind of happiness doesn't come in spectacular fireworks type moments. No, it comes without much fanfare, like gently gliding out on a wooden boat and watching as the calm waters of the lake turn into a bed of lily pads, just as the sun shines through misty clouds and makes everything resplendent and happy again. Simple, easy and natural, that kind of natural isn't attached to achievements or goals- what you did, what you got, what you can show off- it's just about being so content in a moment that it, by itself, is enough. Sharing my happy moment from Lake Skadar National Park, Montenegro. #visitmontenegro #instamontenegro #lakeskadar

🎥Behind the Scenes: What I actually looked like getting my tattoo VS the professional photo I took of me with it four days later...because I had to wait that long to even take the bandaid off/so people wouldn’t yell at me for being in the sun/water with a new tattoo. . Anyway... I got a new tattoo! Thought of it while checking off my bucketlist experience of swimming with whale sharks, and went to a tattooist (@rivastattooer ) later that day with the idea to get my greatest bucketlist checkmarks on my forearm! . Yes, drinking was involved, but no regrets!!! . Check out the explanation of the symbols on @mylifesatravelmovie or on my recent blog post called “30 Most Epic Adventures Before 30”, where there are way more than 30 things on there 😂 . #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #behindthescenes #bucketlisttattoo #nofear #noregrets #moretequila #solotravel #travelblogger
Behold! My new bucketlist tattoo!!! I’m so damn proud to have ticked off my original plus several more travel bucketlists that I decided to commemorate it permanently on my forearm (and will probably continue it up the back of my arm since I have a lot more things I’ve done!) I was going to just get a map, but decided the epic experiences deserve their own spots! Plus I love being different 🤪🙋‍♀️🌎💪🏽 . My dream four years ago was just to travel in general, then find a way to make it my job. I did not know it would lead to me crushing bucketlists left and right, doing and photographing most of it by myself! Not to mention, keeping a highly detailed blog with my travel tips and tricks from everywhere I go! . So without further ado, here are what the symbols of my bucketlist tattoo represent: 🌎 with 7 = traveling all 7 continents 💦 (waterfall) with 7 = exploring all 7 Wonders of Nature 🕌 (Taj Mahal) with 7 = experiencing all 7 New World Wonders 🐘 with 5 = Seeing the Big 5 animals of Africa 🏔 = Summiting Kilimanjaro (I drew the mountain outline!) 🌿(coral) = Diving the Great Barrier Reef, Belize, Red Sea, Maldives 🗿 = Exploring Easter Island . 👏🏼 Big thanks to @rivastattooer for hand drawing these on an iPad mostly from photos! Def go to him in Playa del Carmen if you want a tatt! ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ Now it’s time for you to get cracking on your bucketlist(s)! To help you do that, I have another travel voucher from @tripvalet that may interest you! . For anyone who signs up for a VIP membership (plz use TripValetwithAlyssa.info) by the end of the month, you’ll get a 7 night hotel voucher for hundreds of locations on 6 continents for only $417!!! . I’ve already stalked the locations and they’re pretty awesome! Complete details will be on my Stories along with more gushing about my bucketlists! 💖 . [Also, I purposely waited to show my tattoo until it was allowed to be in sun and water so plz no mommying me lol] . #bucketlistgoals #bucketlist #bucketlisttattoo #7continentsclub #7worldwonders #7wondersofnature #kilimanjaro #big5 #greatbarrierreef #easterisland #badasstattoo #brandambassador #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #travelblogger #iphonex #sonya7riii

The world is big my friends, big enough to accommodate every kind of crazy, strange and weird. So stay crazy, hold on to the weirdness, and don't be afraid to stand out- normal is overrated. ----–--------------------------------------------------Hello from Montenegro, where I'm currently standing out by being a solo-traveling brown girl in a little village by Lake Skadar 😉This is a country I didn't expect to be visiting but here I am exploring its fantastic natural landscapes. This country is tiny, home to only some 622,000 people, but packs in a punch with national parks and jaw dropping Adriatic coastlines that are thought of as some of the best in Europe. Stay tuned for more updates from Montenegro. 🇲🇪 #yallagopro #gopro #goprogirl #VisitMontenegro #GoProTravel
But first, let me take a [Whale Shark] selfie. 🤪🤳🏻🐋🦈 . This guy was so chill just gliding along eating all the plankton that you can see in the water and all over me (aka not chum from humans besides the vomit), it was such an amazing experience, and the only thing that could have made it better was if I was allowed to free dive and not wear the vest 😂 . But anyway, back to the fact that I took a selfie with a Whale Shark...this is why on my bio I call myself a “selfietographer”, not only do I take 97% of my own photos, but I happen to manage to also get them with wild animals! . Anyone who can name at least 3 epic animal selfies I’ve taken in the comments will get a shoutout on my Stories! (Hint: there’s a lot on my behind the scenes account @alyssaramostravels !) . #animalwhisperer #alyssaventura #selfietographer #solotravel #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #girlswhoscuba #goprogirl #whaleshark #whalesharkdiving #mexico #cancun #islamujeres #holbox #animalplanet

Another massive bucketlist tick for the books (or in my current case, tattoo!), swimming with Whale Sharks!!!! 😻🐋🦈🙋‍♀️ . I was so excited and proud to finally experience this that it literally inspired me to go get my top bucketlist ticks tattooed on my arm right after! You’ll see it tomorrow 😀 . It wasn’t easy seeing these guys, unlike other places that feed them so they come up to the boats, these whale sharks are feeding on natural plankton in the ocean two hours off the coast of Cancun, where the biggest migration happens! I went with @kooxadventure (who I also went cenote diving with), and would highly recommend them! More details are on my blog in the Riviera Maya post, and will be linked on my Stories! Will also include the link to my current Airbnb! . Also, since this tour leaves from Cancun, I would recommend splurging to stay at one of the nice hotels there (find great discounts on @tripvalet , I’ll show some on my Stories too!) because it is an EARLY wake up call to go see the whale sharks, and after being on the boat all day, you’ll want to just plop down by a pool! (Yes I puked from the waves) . Is swimming with a Whale Shark on your bucketlist??? . 📷 taken with a @gopro 5 (the 6 is on a selfie stick in my hand), using a dome. All gear I use can be found on the Riviera Maya blog post, or travel gear section, as well as how I edit photos under Tips and Tricks! MyLifesAMovie.com 💖 Thanks @bennymexico for helping me shoot these pics and videos and bringing me water when I puked! . #bucketlist #bucketlistgoals #bucketlistbabe #whalesharks #whaleshark #selfietography #mexico #cancun #rivieramaya #tulum #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #solotravel #goprogirl #girlswhoscuba #instagood #matadornetwork
