Bristol. How I love thee. ☺ ❤️ 🤗 On the one hand, how lovely is it to feel a bit glum (after a the dentist, albeit a positive visit) and chance upon a friendly bit of graffiti spreading some subtle positivity. On the other hand, who spray paints a church door?! OUTRAGEOUS! 🤣 . . . #graffiti #artofvisuals #artscene #artsy #stencilart #bristolart #streetart #publicart #igersbristol #igersuk #bristol247 #visitbristol #bitsofbristol #livebristol #love #outrageous #positivevibes #travelphotography #planetdiscovery #shexexplores #womenwhotravel #explore #explorerbabes

A breath of relief. As I finally slithered to the top of the mountain. Ankles shaking, patience withering away with the fading sunlight, each squeaky snowshoe step my companion took stretching my resolution taut. Not only had I kindly hinted to him that he should hide the damn shoes behind a tree for “safekeeping” ( to hopefully never be found again ), I had also used whatever heart capacity I had left from weeks of gelato and pizza consumption to speed up as fast as I could away from the dreadful noise, to only then hear them speeding up hurriedly behind me. Nevertheless! I reached the top, ate a beautiful bean soup, and raced back down listening to the nervous rant of a man afraid bears would take a bite of his el-dente spaghetti made body. 😂 There is no need for a behind scenes, I’m laying the true story bare here behind the crest whitening strip smile of relief on my face 😌😊 at Rifugio Alpino Monte Lussari

🎵 @gaslampkiller - Nissim & Amir Yaghmai Overlooking the medieval land of Mostar, a city built from the Iron Age, conquered by the Romans and lived in by the Ottomans; this I feel is the perfect time for me to share the best quote of 2018 given to me in a difficult time of that year by my beautiful interior design intern from Malaysia and dear friend @mans_the_awesome . So as Mans once said: “You can’t cut an orange with one hand”. It’s best used when referring to relationships, whether romantically or just general life encounters where you tend to blame yourself for everything that ever happened and have difficulty accepting that it takes two to tango. It’s a quote best used to ease your heart and accept that things may not have been perfect, and you were willing to make them better. BUT you cannot lay to rest everything that ever happened on your own two strong shoulders. So take it easy. You can’t cut an orange with one hand :) Behind the scenes: I was playfully showing @ipreece how to “pose”. To which she tentatively peered over the edge of the wall with one beady eye and said - Nope. Like any sensible person who carries around eye patches, wet wipes and two bottles of perfume. at Mostar

Did someone say free walking tour?! Yes, I am still in England 🤣. 🦌 🏡 🎄 What a great tour though! If you look carefully on the first photo, you can see that I caught this buck during a very long wee that he seems to be really enjoying 😂. Our guide took us on a deer walk around Dyrham Park to places we'd not visited before (this is maybe my tenth visit?!) and told us a lot about the different types of deer and their habits. They have been there since the 1600s! My toes may have frozen in their wellies but I didn't care 😍. . . . #thepeoplewiththelens #deer #nature #nature_lusters #nature_lovers #explorerbabes #shexexplores #naturephotography #natgeoyourshot #roamtheplanet #keepitwild #fantastic_earth #ourplanetdaily #nationaltrust #swisbest #bestunitedkingdom #instapic #instadaily #travellingshare #womenwhoexplore #outdoorplayground #outdoorwomen #freewalkingtour #wellies #winter at Dyrham Park - National Trust

Living my best life on a budget in Bosnia! 🤩🇧🇦🔥❄️ Also, I did not drive this snowmobile. I assigned myself chief backseat @gopro videographer! 😌 But holy shit @davidpreece_ has zero chill, with hysterical (slightly maniacal laughter) we were sent FLYING down that path! Gently caressed by tree branches as they flung themselves at our faces, skidding round the snowbanks and spitting out snow balls, the Preece’s raced. Won’t be our first or last 🤘🏼😬🤘🏼 Fyi: @aishapreece will be breaking our trip down to budget, places, things to do (not do... like how not to ski up a tree), where to eat, etc in her upcoming Living Your Best Life On A Budget: Bosnia Edition 🇧🇦 blog post! at Jahorina, Republica Srpska, Bosnia And Herzegovina

Officially one year ago, 2018. This is a beautiful photo in the snowy mountains of Italy, but I was so sad and confused. Reluctant to enjoy myself. Barely allowing a picture to catch a moment I wish I wasn’t in. Mad things. It goes to show it’s the company we are with that brings the most enjoyment out of life. THIS YEAR HOWEVER! I’ve lived it up with my family in Bosnia! 🇧🇦 I’ve laughed hard, been so silly, learnt a new skill (to ski 🤘🏼). I feel like my heart is full :) I take things easier. There’s only onwards and upwards, maybe a few hiccups will occur here and there, but overall it’s feeling positive! I send you love and light. Peace be upon you. at Rifugio Alpino L. Zacchi

So I’ve fallen in love. Skiing is a love I never knew, and it’s touched me right here *points to heart* You are truly focused on the moment. I’ve never felt such an ease of meditation that compares to the one-pointed focused joy of concentrating on your body as you manoeuvre through the powdery snow, gliding from one side of the mountain to the next. In the moment with your body. With nature. Freedom. Isn’t that what love is. at Olimpijski Centar Jahorina

The value of an idea lies in the using of it. Sometimes you have to wrap your head around an idea, and just keep doing it over and over, do it week after week, day after day, until it the idea becomes clear and you can really see the brand and clarify with it. Podcast @theskinnyconfidential #155 @lukestorey - Human Optimization, The struggle of an addict, Recovery, Spirituality & Personal Transformation. So I’ve got ideas. I’m never short of them. They swirl around my head, and burst into flames at the ignition of inspiration. They float around and haunt me, taunt me. Which one will I overcome the panic of trying and of not trying at all. Come on Sarbira. Be brave. It doesn’t help my case that I’m a professional procrastinator. But that’s the point though isn’t it. Who ever said getting an idea did and done is easy. Or maybe it is. It probably is. Get on with it! at Nomadic Community Garden, Shoreditch

Exploration! Upon inspecting the derelict site, I found a crack in one of the doors covered in graffiti. So I crawled in to discover a panoramic view! And architecture that will most likely feature itself in my future home 😌 So this historical building is where the boats would float in heaped with the white gold, salt of Cervia. What a discovery! That’s a massive part of my personality and happiness 😊 I have multiple folders, archives, notes, picture, listings, etc labeled with Things I Want To Do. I’ve learnt to be a wanderer and an explorer in whatever city I am in, to be curious about the small details. It helps me grow and develop new material for thought processes and ideas. Behind the scenes: decked out ready to go for a run that never happened. I was SO excited to be exploring this afternoon! Pure joy! I think I had a pizza later that night too 😬If you ever pop by Cervia, you can visit the B&B I designed called Zingaro Di Mare ( Gypsy Of The Sea ) 😊 at Cervia

🎶Rollin - Calvin Harris ft Future & Khalid. So there I was pleasantly rattling through London city on a Sunday night. My spirits slowly bubbling up into a positive air of joy and slight anxiety that I was cruising (I say cruising, I was RATTLING) through the streets of London on a sweet pre-stolen bike with Ahmed Preece. The kid. My modestly spectacular unassuming little brother, who to his misfortune has found his sister living with him. Parking her makeup brushes in his favourite tin cup. Let’s break down [Pre-Stolen] /Ahmed Edition/: The bike is a dilapidated hire bike that people have misused and abused. I just gave it a new home. synonym: long-term borrow. #ididntstealthebike Weaving and rattling along, selectively listening to the tentative caressing beeps of the cars, a police car rolls up behind me. I’m fine. Of course I am. I’ve never done a wrong thing in my life, plus Ahmed is here I smiled to myself :) Ahmed then speeds up behind me to call out,”SARBIRA STOP YOU’VE STOLEN THE BIKE!” *Ok. Firstly I haven’t stolen anything, secondly he gave me the bike 😂* That’s the end of the Throwing Me Under A Bus episode. Hope you enjoyed it 😬 at London, United Kingdom

When I lived in Bath, UK. Nature was my refuge. I explored. I found little cafes next to the canals that sold sticky brownies sold by two grannies and opened 1 day a week. I ran and rolled down the surrounding hills, I cried in despair and laughed with love in that city. . I gave myself those special moments in time and took pictures of the beauty I absorbed. People would ask me, how do you afford to travel so much; I worked 3 jobs, from 4am to 11pm. I had 1 day off every 2 weeks. I still work 2 jobs, 3 if you count the late nights I stay up, my mind swirling with so many ideas, how do I root them! How do I wake up again and keep going. Just keep chipping away, try to make every moment count. Maybe that’s why I’ve eaten so many chocolate biscuits, it’s getting harder to make the moments count. But I’ll keep trying. . Peace be upon you. . Behind the scenes: I was found and crowned in love. I was loved so deeply by someone else here. I didn’t need to work on my own self love. I knew it and I was full of theirs. Its like carrying the worlds weight on your shoulders but when you’re loved so much, everything is ok. It’s a very beautiful feeling. It’s like wearing a knitted sweater, feeling the wind gently touch your skin as it whispers through the weave...ah love. And then, life jolts you into working on the things we need to. It’s been a journey. It’s there. It always is. It’s in you, and I mean it. at Bath, Somerset

“Allow yourself to be imperfect.“ Episode #125 @highestselfpodcast Modern Spirituality + Ayurveda: @cathy.heller So more often then not I don’t feel cool. But I also find that I don’t mind. And if you don’t mind it doesn’t matter :) I came across the most fascinating concept from a fabulous colleague of mine called Sam. I don’t know his last name. But I know that he’s 6ft++ and was once bitten by a giraffe and still isn’t over it. Sam said to me one day, as he shimmied around me like his name was Ms Spears whilst we strutted through the fashion store @anthropologie ; that he was very much looking forward to being an old man. And that he thinks he will be the most fabulous old man ( he’s 21 with a soul of a 80 year old). And I thought to myself I’ve never thought about old age that way! Well shit I would be the most FABULOUS bejewelled old lady! In the last 6 months I’ve had 7 old ladies comment how lovely a girl I was, CLEARLY this means I’m in with the crew! Bring on the years! Behind the scenes: I was frustrated and in limbo in life ( when am I not is the question!). But in the same breath I was so happy with my physical body. I was tanned and toned. It was delicious! I’d been living in Cervia, Italy, swimming, playing beach volley, having daily evening canal strolls, cycling. It made me realise I need and want physical outdoor activities in my life :) it’s a true enjoyment of the anatomical bodies we have been honoured with. at Gellert, Budapest, Hungary

I really like this picture but I can’t quite put my finger on why? Maybe it’s because it’s so busy with people, or the scale of everything, or just...primary colours? Anyway, we went to Asakusa Senso-ji on a roasting hot day back in August. It was packed, and sweaty, we were exhausted and hungry, so much was going on.

U wot m8? • This is apparently what I look like mid-hike in 35-40C humid summer. I’ve been trying to get into hiking and remember that I like nature and high places, but it’s hard when Korea and Japan have 50000x more bugs than back home and they’re huge and terrifying. Also apparently there were monkeys and bears in this forest?! I’d take a British squirrel and fox any day. • Although, who would win in an East vs West fight, badger or monkey? • • • • • #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes at Minoh Falls, Mino-O, Osaka

I’ve been on Instagram a REALLY long time. Way back when it was just a photo dump kinda space for selfies and food, and my friends all posted the same and that was it. Now I mostly follow accounts with celebrities and big followings and endorsements and opportunities and I find myself feeling like an underachiever. I get stressed when I have a lazy weekend at home because I feel like I don’t go out enough, I don’t adventure enough, I don’t fly first class often enough (😂), those kinda things. • Part of it is being one of those “Gifted and Talented” kids with straight As (and an Asian mum) that peaked in year 10, but the other part is defo just a need to step back and get some perspective. I’ve climbed mountains, learnt language, gymmed, made clothes, met people...It might not be cocktails on a private island but I guess I have done a lot this year. • Melancholy post brought to you by the onset of the darkest season.

Something I’ve come to understand the importance of is Balance. I worked hard on my interior project in Cervia, but I also made it a point to explore, take a walk, cycle, swim, listen to podcasts, to show up for myself and make time for me :) To be fair looking back, I could have cherished making and valuing the time for myself more, but only with perspective can we look back and be like “Ah, got it, I’ll do it better next time.” So what will you do for yourself today? Ive booked a yoga class with @triyogauk, and then I will go home and chip away on my little interior design project 😊 at Saline di Cervia

I have a dark secret about this photo that I’ll never reveal. 🤫 * What I will tell you, though, is that this is on the final stretch up the mountain to Minōo Falls, near Osaka. It’s probably packed now, since it’s famous for it’s amazing autumn foliage, but it was gorgeous and calm in the summer. 🍂 * Another thing you should definitely try is Minōo’s local specialty: Momiji Tempura, aka deep fried maple leaves 🍁 * They’re picked at peak redness, then pickled or preserved somehow, ready to be battered and fried all year round. I could eat a whole bag of them! They’re slightly sweet, slightly salty, and slightly grassy. Definitely worth a taste! • • • • • #japan_vacations #explorejpn #explorejapan #visitjapan #ig_nippon #japan_daytime_view #tokyocameraclub #photo_travelers #yourjapan #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #natgeo #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes at Minoh Falls, Mino-O, Osaka

Shinkansen Snapshot 🚅 Fast speeds are a bit scary, and this is the fastest I’ve been on land (commercial jets are far faster) but 200mph is a lot less scary than I would have imagined thanks to the big white duck-snake. I’ll explain: in school, my friends and I thought the bullet trains looked like a mix between a duck and a snake. And a train, of course. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s the fastest you’ve ever travelled? • • • • • #thevisualcollective #flashesofdelight #pursuepretty #abmhappylife #chasinglight #moodygrams #lightandshadows #highcontrast #throughthewindow #shadowart #windowviews #fromthewindow #getlost #optoutside #exploretocreate #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores at Shinkansen High Speed Rail

A barely Mermaid Pose: (Ekapada Rajakapotasana) We store bottled up feelings of stress, trauma, fear and anxiety in the hips. This pose opens the hips and releases negative feelings and undesirable energy stored in your system. I think it was twice in a class where I thought I was fine, and by the end of a hip opener pose, I found myself with a runny nose and tears streaming down my face. The depth of yoga never ceases to amaze me. Behind the scenes: I toppled over the other side as soon as this was shot :) at Italy

This place is kind of the opposite of my earlier, peaceful post. This part of a temple as popular and busy as this one is always bustling with people paying their respects, praying, making donations, taking photos, and wandering around. There’s chatter everywhere, and sometimes music. It’s usually that traditional, raucous-sounding music that sounds so rowdy to my ears. Failing that, bells and jingles are also common. The scent of incense is potent and heady. It’s so lively and exciting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know that not all temples are like this, but I like the contrast between these two places I visited on my vacation. • • • • • #japan_vacations #explorejpn #explorejapan #visitjapan #ig_nippon #japan_daytime_view #tokyocameraclub #photo_travelers #yourjapan #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #keepexploring #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #instapassport #igtravel #mytravelgram #natgeo #citizenfemme #seetheworldwithme #ourlonelyplanet #folkscenery #dametraveler #shexexplores #darlingescapes at Sensoji Temple, Asakusa

Waiting for a train that’s 14 years late. Byeokje Station has a kind of sad story. I was so curious as to why this abandoned train line in the middle of nowhere had sections of track and bits of signage that didn’t look more than a few years old. So, I did some digging. • It was built in 1961 as part of the Korail Gyo-oe Line, which was initially intended to become a sightseeing loop line that ran around Seoul, going from Uijeongbu in the north east, to Neunggok in the west, down to Seoul Station and Yongsan via Sinchon, and around to Wangsimni in a total of just over 2 hours. Sounds fun, like a predecessor to the sightseeing trains in other parts of Korea. • However, the line fell into disrepair a lot faster than expected. Expansion into new areas was slowed because a lot of the areas they planned to run through were blocked by nature conservation programmes and military zones. What with that and the rapid development of expressways, nobody was using the train line anymore. If the expansion was blocked from the start, what is there to see on this sightseeing train? • By 1990, one solitary train passed through 3 times a day, and by 2000 they decided to call it a day. It’s been used on and off as a limited time sightseeing or nostalgia line (with varying success), and most recently as a freight line for the nearby army bases. Apparently, the line is still used from time to time for this final purpose, but they trains arrive at weird times of day and operate with minimal lighting, like ghost trains. 👻 • • • • • #getlost #optoutside #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #keepexploring #letsgosomewhere #igtravel #mytravelgram #벽게역 #ourlonelyplanet #abandonedplaces #dametraveler #shexexplores #urbex #urbanexplorers #koreabyme #historylessonoftheday #trainstagram #curioustraveler #wheninkorea #ig_seoul #ig_korea #igerskorea #instakorea #koreagram at 벽제역

My new #home for the next two weeks. When the sun is out, it's #insane! There are hummingbirds, bees and squirrels. Not to mention 3 beautiful pools to dip into. If only the main focus of that sentence wasn't 'when' the #sun is out. Pleeeeeease come back?! . . . #landscapephoto #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephotography #nature #naturelover #nature_lusters #sunshine #jungle #inthejungle #colombiajungle #shexexplores #explorecolombia #exploreseekers #mountainlover #choosemountains #inthemountains #mtnchicks #travelphotography #travelphoto at Finca Carpe Diem

A beautiful sunset background for a beautiful gateway - one of the many gateways into the Old Town of Cartagena. Just after we walked through the park and saw sloths, as you do! All the perks from looking skyward whilst walking around towns. Just incase. Yes, I still have neck ache. 🤷‍♀️🤩🏃 . . . #sunsetphoto #sunsetphotography #sunset #sunshine #summer #sky #backpackingworld #beautiful #beauty #summerfun #howisthiswinter #shexexplores #exploring #travelling #peoplewhooutdoor #peoplewhoadventure #instagood #instratravel #love #naturephotography #natgeoyourshot #bbctravel #traveltheglobe #colombia #visitcolombia #southamerica #travelsouthamerica #cartagena #igerscartagena at Cartagena, Colombia
