Happy Birthday @sashajuliard πŸ₯³ I hope you have a blast in your man cave 😜 . This is actually a throwback to last September when we were on the magical island of Mykonos in Greece at one of our favourite hotels in the world @cavotagoomykonos πŸ’™ . Over the past year Sasha has become one of @aleporte’s and my dear friends. We have laughed together, danced silly together, cried together, had deep discussions together, partied together, be stupid together πŸ€ͺ all in different places around the world, and I’m sure we will have a lifetime of adventurous memories together ☺️ . Currently he’s in Portugal and we are in Canada. But I truly feel the best birthday gift right now is to have our health because health is wealth!!! So although we are in quarantine, you really have the best birthday gift ever Sasha!!! AND you are a gift to all of us that get to call you friend!!!! Happy Birthday old man!!! πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ and thanks for being my model! hehe πŸ™ƒ

Back in Bali 🌴 See what I did there? hehe πŸ™ƒ . Just had an amazing spontaneous 4 day trip to Singapore and now we are back. Some of my favourite travel moments are actually those unplanned. Sometimes the best plans to make are no plans at all and just live in the moment! . @aleporte and I didn’t even bring our camera because we really wanted to be present on this trip and it was actually so refreshing! ☺️

Married 4 years!!! πŸ₯° Snapped by @aleporte right before our date night! . Our wedding anniversary was actually 2 days ago on September 1st, but Alejandro and I wanted to stay off our phones and be present with each other all day. . We decided to change it up this year and celebrate at our home in Toronto where we watched our 2 hour wedding documentary for the first time ever!!!! And played video games until 3 am lol. There were lots of tears πŸ˜… It was amazing to slow down and just be home together after always being on the road. . Fun fact behind the bouquet I’m holding. Not many people know this, but we actually had 2 wedding ceremonies. One was in Malibu and the other was at the Vatican in Rome where The Pope personally blessed us and this bouquet which I will treasure forever. . My heart bursts with how much I love @aleporte 😍 . PS. I bought this dress over 5 years ago and it was my first time wearing it πŸ˜…

Anddddd we’re back in Japan! πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ I think this is our 8th time here in only 3 years πŸ˜… . This morning was so fun! I got a text from my friend @harimaolee at 6 am asking if @aleporte and I wanted to come to @teamlab_borderless before it even opened to the public!!! We jumped at the chance and actually went here 2 times in one trip because how much we loved it!! Haha . We were so honoured to finally have our photo taken by the talented @harimaolee who we met 2 years ago right here in Tokyo! . Thanks to @ghani.teamlab for the awesome experience!

Just in time for Valentine's I've discovered the new @KAYAK #KAYAKRendezvous tool which makes it easier and affordable to meet up with your loved ones around the world! πŸŽ‰ . I wish they had this when Alejandro and I were in a long distance relationship for 3 years before we got married! It would have been perfect for us since we were always meeting up in different countries! . Now it's something we will use to plan our family get-togethers around the world since my family is from Canada and his is from Spain! Sometimes we go for months without seeing our parents since we travel so much and this will definitely be useful when we plan our reunions! . It's AMAZING and so easy to use! All you have to do is enter both of your different airports, and the tool finds the best place for you to meet up in! It's like a surprise each time you plan your next trip and I love surprises, so using this tool with my family will be so great to plan epic adventures! . As you know, family is the most important thing to me and now thanks for our partnership with @KAYAK we will be able to make memories which will last a lifetime! πŸ™β˜ΊοΈ . Try it via the α’ͺIα‘ŽK Iα‘Ž α—°Y α—·IO and I would love to hear in the comments below which exciting locations that come up for you when you use it!

Sleeping under a dancing sky 🌌 Don't live in a bubble, sit in one instead 😜 . But seriously, on this platform we all kind of do live in a bubble and it's something that needs to be addressed by more of us! . I wrote this back in April and didn't have the courage to share it until now because I am truly in a much better place now with more balance in my life. . Please read below & in the album as I would love to hear your feedback . These are my scattered thoughts so please bear with me . Here it goes... --- I'm so tired. I'm so destroyed. I'm so overwhelmed. I'm so stressed . I look at myself in the mirror and the truth is, I don't even recognize myself anymore . The same thing which has brought me so much freedom feels as though it has also paralyzed me. . You don't know this, but I work full time while traveling . I was In Spain for almost a month back in March and the truth is, I only went outside 3 days. The rest of the time I was inside on my laptop working non stop and hardly sleeping. But you just saw the 15 second insta story and thought it was my state during my whole time there. The truth is, You only see 5 % of our lives. . You just see the success. You don't see the sleepless nights, the hard work and all the failures along the climb. . I wasn't successful for 2 years . So many quit right before the success actually happens. What if I quit after 1.5 years? So close to the point of success without even knowing . If there is one thing I believe, it's that anything is possible you set your mind to with hard work! Because the harder you work, the luckier you become. . Don't make plans. Don't settle. Don't be sad if you're not where you wanted to be at this point in your life because you're right where you're suppose to be! . Don't believe everything you see. And number one, don't compare yourself to others you see on social media! It's so important to our mental health! For example, this is 2 photos in one & done in collaboration with my friend @visualsofjulius who is an artist! πŸ™Œ . Now, what if I told you I had a 7 lbs tumour the size of a watermelon, how would you know? . Please swipe right ➑️ to read the rest as it doesn't fit in the caption πŸ˜…

'tis the season β„οΈοΈπŸŽ„ I could sit here all night just staring at this beautiful display and observing all the love and energy we feel of the people around us! Honestly Japan is so clean, that I wish I layed on the ground for a while with @aleporte by my side looking up at the lights and ignoring all the hustle around us! πŸ˜πŸŽ„It would feel like this moment, as if we are frozen in time and the only ones! I guess we will just have to go back! hehe Take time to slow down to be more present in moments like this! ☺️
