How long until I can sit in the sun every day and not worry about anything but whether or not it’s too early for a cocktail ☀️

Meet @thelongwaysouthsarah - our feature woman this week! “My fiancé and I have been together since high school and have always wanted to travel together. In 2009 , shortly after graduating college , we embarked on our first road trip where we toured the U.S. for six months living in the back of our ’96 Dodge Ram pickup. It was a very simple life and we fell in love with life on the road immediately. In 2012 , we decided to take our travels further and drove the same truck with the same set up from Maine , USA to Argentina following the Pan American Highway. We took two years to complete this trip and knew this would be a lifestyle we would need to incorporate in our lives no matter what. Since then , we have had a couple different travel rigs that we take to Baja in the winter. We take four months off each winter and travel across the U.S to Baja and back. Currently , we are in Baja enjoying our new rig- an ’07 Dodge Ram with a Four Wheel Camper!” . . . .

When walking your own path , make the choice of gratitude. By fearlessly accepting everything (good and bad) which is happening to us , we make progress , little by little , towards something bigger and more wonderful than our current situation ⚡️ . . Travel tip: the Islands are a British territory , so like Britain , driving is on the left side of the road. There’s a main road which runs the course of the island , making it easy to travel from coast to coast , and the entire island can be driven in about an hour. The Airbnb I stayed at also offered car rentals and organizing day trips , which was perfect for getting around! Not advertised was this absolutely stunning view of the beach , just steps from my back door 🚪 🌊

I’ve taken on some interesting professional challenges over the years…From working in remote regions of East Africa where I contracted malaria , to teaching English to Peruvians without knowing Spanish. I had a job in New York that gave me stomach ulcers and another where I was paid less than a livable wage to do 3 people’s jobs. I even taught myself how to make money online through sharing stories on social media and my blog. But none of those challenges compare to working on a grassroots political campaign in a rural conservative district. Some days the stakes feel impossibly high because the candidate is my mom , because the changes we are fighting for are profound and some are personal. Because sometimes I feel helpless against the forces that control our society , economy and government. And because I’ve pressed pause on all my other dreams to tackle this one. It’s hard for me to admit when I’m in over my head. Especially because I’m used to analyzing everything to death and then making actionable choices to change my circumstances. However , in this case , Election Day is the light at the end of the tunnel , and it’s almost 9 months away. I’m terrified of the potential negative outcome , and I’m struggling to stay sane with 60-70 hour work weeks and no days off. As a little girl , I watched my mom work herself through stressful decades in the military , and after 9/11 I don’t recall her taking any time off until she retired in 2010. I remember thinking , when I grow up , I won’t do that. It seemed like such a simple choice. Now here I am , choosing this lifestyle and prioritizing work above all else. So , yesterday , I listened to my younger self and took a much needed day off. @ryanthompsontravels , our pup @thatnomadicnova and I drove to Sedona in the van to meet a friend @searchingforsloane. We hiked , enjoyed the red rock formations , watched Nova play with other dogs , and I did my best to let go of my stress. It certainly didn’t fix everything , but it was a start. And it made me realize that the simplicity that comforted me as a child , might hold the key to success in adulthood.

Being able to venture out to the outdoors and take the time to discover and explore is truly a privilege that I wish to share more of with others— whether it be on trips , or through narratives. When I started taking pictures for my page , it was mainly to tell stories of the places I’d go , and capture the inspiring visuals that I’d see and love. Now , on top of telling the visual stories , I’ve been working on the craft to eventually inspire on a larger scale. Photography was also a form of art in which I channeled my creativity , and social media was a platform where I met so many like-minded and amazing photographers and adventurers. It has been an amazing few years of feedback and support. This morning I woke up to a great amount of new support from being featured on Sony Alpha’s Instagram page. I’m still riding the high , and it may not seem much to some , but it brought me a strong wave of gratuity that the images I share would bring people joy. About this photo: We hiked early in the morning to arrive at this popular spot. It’s crazy how enormous this arch is , and how small people scale in comparison. This was the last destination of our trip in Utah , before we drove 6 hours back to Vegas to eat fried chicken and sit in a hot tub + bath bomb 😛 📸: @j.saps edits by me . . . . . . #womenwhotravel #girlsabroad #agameoftones #capitolreef #discoverglobe #bevisuallyinspired #utahdotcom #unknownperspectives #vibesofvisuals #weareutah #utahunique #welltraveled #mountainstones #likeamountaingirl #hikingculture #travelinspiration #beautifuldestinations #wunderlust #passionpassport #wearetravelgirls #visitutah #beautahful #sonyalpha #usparksandmonuments #hikingtheglobe #goatworthy #chaseyourgoat
