Right now my job requires that I fly a lot and I get questions about how I reconcile that increased carbon footprint as someone who cherishes our environment. As more of us fall in love with traveling one fairly straightforward way that I’d like to share on here is the idea of carbon offsetting. There are quite a few services (I use one called Terrapass) where you can calculate your CO2 footprint from transportation, electricity, etc and pay to offset that amount through funding things like tree planting and alternative energy projects. I think a few airlines allow you to directly purchase credits against each flight, but I’ve found it easier to just do it for the entire year. Not a perfect system, but thought it might be something you guys are interested in. Or maybe you know more/better ones that I can implement into my life :)

I’m not really a flowers, chocolates, teddy bear kind of girl. Wait for it to get dark and take me to the manta ballet☺️💕 #PADI
Thank you 📷@aliciaunderwater and @seethroughsea for these front row seats to one of the most special and surreal shows on earth. Now back out on the water for us!💙
At any given moment we have the power to make each other’s lives extraordinary.🌿 From small acts of kindness - a smile, buying someone’s food in line behind you - to big surprises and unforgettable experiences. This trip with @fscostarica exploring the special lands of @peninsulapapagayo crafted an itinerary of everything I love and I’m so crazy grateful I got to experience what is possible with their new #papagayoexplorersclub.
On day one we went heli-biking down the side of a volcano, swam in thermal hot spring baths, sped around in ATVs then climbed a giant fig tree, saw blue waterfalls and listened to live music under the stars. I watched the sun rise and set, I was well fed, completely dirty, and danced in the rain. It was a probably a once in a lifetime trip and I’m cherishing it as such☺️💕 But deliberate manifestations of thoughtfulness, they way we pay attention to details and to each other - that is a luxury I’m looking forward to making that part of my everyday. @fscostarica thank you for an exquisite stay. #sponsored#costarica#helibiking#fscostarica -

Visiting Saint Lucia was a dream of mine for so long that I was worried maybe the real place wouldn’t match the story in my head. From the moment I landed I had the biggest silly smile. We climbed the mountain to my left, drank coconuts in the colorful streets, and went cave diving in the crystal clear bay. A friendly young boy gave us tips on better tree climbing techniques. Enroute to @windjammerlanding our taxi driver figured out we really like taking photos and went out of his way to show us this amazing deck overlooking the town. It’s my favorite thing to experience the spirit of a place, true warmth that’s so much more than just picture perfect. Photo by @sam_kolder
PS: @travelsaintlucia is giving away an all expenses paid trip for two, details on their page🌸 #Letherinspireyou#stlucia

Passion is contagious. I look at this photo and think how neat it is that from this one person on the highline (hi @handsomerobinson) nearly all 12 of us have fallen in love with slack lining and four now also highline. Ryan has picked up photography and it’s a subtle, slow beauty, watching the cross-pollination of all of us learning from one another. This was how we welcomed in our new year - light rays, double rainbows, challenging logistics and lots of cheering - the culmination of so many elements working together to create a day I’ll never forget.

Photo @everchanginghorizon with my edit. Thanks to @handsomerobinson@travisburkephotography@kylormelton for the many hours spent on research and rigging that morning, we were all STOKED. #ShootforGreatness#highline#Oregon#sponsored
Sometimes I wonder if people in the past would laugh at the things we do for fun in the future :) Aerial perspective from @djiglobal’s #MavicAir which just released this morning! I was so excited to get one early and see how crazy small it is. I’m putting up a few stories so you can see it if you’re curious😊
Thanks @adventuremandan piloting this one. #sponsored#hawaii

Earthling🌿 We ran where we could and hoisted ourselves uphill. Between rain storms and happy dance moves I suppose I must have stood still :) thanks @adventuremandan and (Photo) @everchanginghorizon for committing to this even with the weather!

“See anything big? No sharks or dolphins?” my dad asked me after noticing I had dove multiple mornings in a row. And I get it, we have a tendency to focus on the big stuff, the bucket lists, to be impressed by the extremes. What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever swam with? How long can you hold your breath, how high have you climbed? Personally those don’t make me the happiest.
Where ever I am in the world, whatever I’m doing, I practice noticing a thousand beautiful details a day and that has made all the difference. :) happy weekend humans!
From a very special dive filled with lots of little things🐟 with @chadkoga#thehappinessproject#freedive#Hawaii
