The grandest place on Earth ⛺️ 10 degree weather, a snow capped canyon & the smallest of crowds made for the perfect misadventure. It was so cold nearly all of our water & our boots perpetually froze for 3 days. Entirely worth it, the views in this place are absolutely mesmerizing. Excited to show you some of the other teaser shots I took later this week.

The weather is finally clearing up!
Perfect day to be out for a walk with the dogs around the campground! 🐶
Despite it being a complete pain, the frozen rain creates the most beautiful background for a quiet and creative day. Taking a color theory course and daydreaming of the strange colors that make up the Painted Desert in AZ. 🌵 My heart aches to get out there, just a short while longer until my winter break is over and I’m back behind a lens again. This time has been much needed to reset and restore my passion for nature and more thankful than ever for this new change of scenery in Maine that I’ve only scratched the surface of. Excited for what our new home will be the beginning of!
Today let’s talk about networking + finding work during your travels.
It’s so interesting to me to look back and see how when I hit the road the second time with almost no money, it was almost like a vacation compared to the first time. I had learned so many things that made finding resources and what I needed easier. Although I still get nervous when it comes time to hit the road again, I’m confident that I will find what I need and be taken care of.
Once again- when we get to this part of the book, we do talk about safety levels for different people and privilege when it comes to finding work during travels.
Why would you want to find work during your travels? Well, saving up cash can buy you food, needed tools or equipment, a night in a hostel or a bus ticket to your next place.
Something that has been HUGE for me when trying to find work is just asking... and then doing it! We can be consumed by the fear of asking for something, by the possible response of a “no.” Don’t let this hold you back.
Another big thing that has not only helped me find work, but also places to stay and the coolest humans is networking. Keeping in touch with people that are important to you. Asking them who they know, if they can help you in anyway. Asking your community if they can point you in the right direction to meet your need. This can be done easily online, but also in your everyday interactions.
More information, detailed instructions and even a script for finding work can be found in my #TravelGuide, Will Work For Food. The link is up in the bio. Enjoy your day you beautiful humans! ✨🥑🌈🌏
Where’s the oddest place you’ve ever been? For me Salvation Mountain in the US is certainly up there! .
Salvation Mountain is located in the Southern Californian desert and is one man’s religious tribute in the form of a gigantic painted clay and concrete mountain adorned with religious slogans and biblical quotes. As well as a three levels of colourful rabbit tunnels the site is also littered with various multicoloured vehicles such as this one.

I never tell my clients that they can’t have a certain food. Cheese, carbs, bacon- GO FOR IT. What I WILL tell people? You have to watch your portions AND you can’t have any “food like substances” (aka all the processed shit we eat daily) 🤷🏼♀️
