Chefchaouen, the blue city, dream destination for many photographers.
If you watched my stories while I was in Morocco you probably remember my ghostly face telling you I spent most of my time in Chefchaouen in bed on the verge of death with the nastiest flue. I didn’t get to see much of this town, I didn’t take the usual Instagram pics that everyone else has, I went for a walk in the Medina while my poor driver made sure I wouldn’t pass out in an alley and I managed to take a few photos. I usually would be so upset about missing out on photographing a place I dreamt to photograph forever but this time I was ok with that; Chefchaouen is an incredibly pretty place, every corner is a postcard, every door a perfect picture, but (for the little I saw) it’s also quite the tourist trap and didn’t feel as authentic as I imagined it. I’m still glad I got to see that with my own eyes and I hope you will too. What’s a place you visited that didn’t meet your expectation?
🇮🇹Chefchaouen, la città’ blu, meta sognata da molti fotografi. Se avete seguito le mie stories mentre ero in Marocco probabilmente vi ricordate la mia faccia pallida e provata raccontarvi di aver passato tutto il tempo che avevo a disposizione a Chefchaouen a letto in punto di morte con la febbre più stronza che mi sia mai venuta. Non sono riuscita a vedere quasi niente, non ho fatto le solita instagarmmate che sono già state fatte da tutti gli altri passati di qua, sono riuscita a trascinarmi nella Medina per circa un ora a fare qualche foto mentre il mio driver mi correva dietro rassicurandosi che non svenissi in un vicolo 😂
Solitamente ci rimango malissimo quando non riesco a fare foto in un posto che sognavo di fotografare da tanto ma questa volta non mi ha toccata affatto la cosa; Chefchaouen e’ una città incredibilmente carina, ogni angolo e’ una cartolina, ogni stradina una foto perfetta...ma e’ anche una bella trappola per turisti e, per quel poco che ho visto, non era autentica come me l’ero immaginata. Più viaggio più cerco quella genuina autenticita’ ma sono comunque grata di essere passata di qui e aver visto la citta’ blu con i miei occhi. Qual’e’ un posto che vi ha un po’ deluso?

As much as I complain about the tube (I really do hate it) and the pollution (I miss Canada’s clean air) I must admit the views here really are spectacular. 🤓
Probably the most exclusive family resort in Morocco, The Four Seasons Resorts and Private Residences is located just minutes outside the Medina on the edge of Hivernage and overlooking the Royal Menara Gardens. The heart of the Red City opens up to reveal an Arizona-like resort oasis that brings together the best of Moroccan architecture with the classic, clean lines that the Four Seasons is famous for. True to the Four Seasons brand, the resort offers stylish, sun-lit public spaces, bathed in beige and accented with the occasional hotshot of colour. In-house, over-the-top floral arrangements seem to be de rigour at all the lux hot-spots and The Four Seasons is no exception..

When you just want to hug the little cuties, then your husband reminds you cheetahs are killing machines.😳 This trio of cheetah cubs are learning how to approach eating a fresh kill as their mom watches from the nearby bushes. Check out my stories to see that it’s not only human babies that like to play with their food. 😂 @royalmalewane , photos by @davidflinner#royalmalawane#theroyalportfolio#flinnersinsouthafrica
Hello from sunny San Diego! I just arrived yesterday and am so excited to be here to see how much the city has changed in the 15+ years since my last trip here.Turns out it’s changed a lot, but one of the first things I did was to seek out the nearest beach to bask in those famous ocean views. A little off the beaten path, this is Imperial Beach, not far from Coronado. Located just a few miles from the Mexican border, it’s the kind of sleepy seaside community I love. It was along this beach where, in the 1930s and 40s, some of the early pro surfers got their start, seeking what were at the time the best waves in the country. Like many other beach communities it’s had its ups and downs over the years, but there’s no denying the beauty of this wooden pier jutting out into the Pacific, creating an untold number of wonderful memories for millions of people over the years. I’m really looking forward to the next few days here as I explore as much as I can of San Diego and the neighboring communities. If you have any tips, I would love to hear them! #visitsd

Wanted to write something deep and meaningful but all I can think of is pizza so this is all I have for you today. 🍕
Исках да напиша нещо доста по-смислено и вдъхновяващо, но единственото, за което си мисля, е пица, та толкова за днес от мен 🍕🙈
Solos nos reiremos de todo, y todo tendrá una razón, sólo una razón.
Pero baila, baila.. Y que no caiga tu sonrisa.
Hi dear friends ☺️ you may have already heard by now that I’ve launched @dametraveleradventures this year to give you the opportunity to join me on journeys around the world instead of just living vicariously through Instagram! Our first trip will be a 10 day Social Media and Photography workshop in partnership with the super talented @lauragriertravel during the dates of April 7th-16th! More info in the link in my bio. There are only 3 spots left and I hope to see you there 🙃 Trips are being planned to destinations such as Egypt/Jordan, Italy, Morocco, South Africa and more so stay tuned! 🙏🏼💕 #dametraveler#nastasiainsrilanka
That one time I got woken up for breakfast service and was in a daze 🙃 Anyway these are my favorite track pants from #adidasSG that I saw in Japan and tracked down all the way to Singapore. I like them that much 🙏
Maybe it was the feast night with @angelacooking at the helm followed by campfire breakfasts and hangover busting bloody Marys on tap plus all the bells and whistles with a key to the @thepopuphotel , but glamping at @smokedanduncut has now sold out. But the good news? There’s still 4 dates and 4 festivals to feast on and you can still zing them an email to go on the waiting list for a boutique weekender.

Happy Sunday. As a means of getting through Winter I’ve been making a map of all the places I want to photograph when the plants and flowers return. There are about 50 places marked now and I’m still going 🙈
And no matter where this journey takes me, the streets of New York will forever be home to me 🏡 @dametraveler collab with @adambrazier

On Sunday Aaron and I had a day out in Bath. It’s such a beautiful city, never fails to impress us. I didn’t take my camera because I was walking the dog but couldn’t resist taking some photos on my phone. 💛
