Bree 🌙 Travel + Adventure Profile Information

Being constantly on the go makes it difficult to make time to plan for the future. To be honest with you guys, I’m afraid of the future, afraid of the unknown. You never know what life can throw your way. But what I do know is the importance of prioritizing your financial goals. Although I’m not a client, I’m so excited to have sat down for my consultation with @johnhancockusa to help alleviate my fears and learn new ways to approach saving and investing! How are you planning for your financial future? #JHPartner #sponsored

My alarm went off at 3am. I sat up in the backseat of the car and unzipped my sleeping bag. After going to bed around midnight, we were all so groggy. Reluctant to open the car door, I held on tight to the handle as the wind tried ripping it from my grip. It was freezing, and we didn’t speak to one another much, but I think we were all thinking the same thing, “let’s go back to sleep” 😂 but as we saw the bright golden sky, we grabbed our gear and made our way to the beach. Each day prior, the weather had been so stormy, but this morning we witnessed one hell of a sunrise. 🌅 Black sand beach, peaky mountain views, and a fiery ball of a sun that made the landscape glow. Worth the wake up call? Definitely. ✨

Spent the day exploring the most “easterly” province of Canada. We hiked the East Coast Trail for sunset and were honestly blown away by what we found. The views were incredible. The sun began to set into a massive pink ball before slowly disappearing into the horizon. Little white flowers lined the lush greenery that surrounded up and the waves hit the monstrous cliffs, hushing all other sounds around us.
.
The East Coast Trail was only one of the many attractions we experienced during our time in Newfoundland. We spent the day exploring the cute and colorful town of St. John’s, had some delish vegan food, and capped our hike with a beer from Quidi Vidi Brewery downtown. All in all, an unbelievable first day. Head over to @newfoundlandlabrador for more inspiration on your visit. Click the link in my bio!

I think I could count the number of times I considered sitting out on something. Whether it was climbing higher up a mountain for a different angle, or skipping a hike all together, it always ends with me wishing I had gone further. Take this waterfall for example. When we arrived, everyone made their way into the cave opening and I stood outside. I’m not even sure why. Could’ve been exhaustion from the crazy week we had, but whatever it was, I was glad @annacatharina__ was sweet enough to come and get me. Her eyes were lit up and she told me I had to come see. We tip toed our way from rock to rock avoiding the freezing water as best we could. Behind us, sunset beamed into the cave entrance lighting our path. We continued on until the cave opened into a narrow canyon revealing this incredible waterfall. I honestly didn’t think Iceland would be able to blow me away day after day, but it did. When two choices are put in front of you, the extra effort is always worth it.✨

Travel is such a huge part of my life and I’m constantly trying to figure out ways to make it more affordable. After my consultation with @johnhancockusa, I felt relieved as I learned lots of new ways on how I could make my lifestyle way more sustainable. It all begins with proper financial planning both now and for the future! What passions or goals do you have that a financial planner can help with? ✨ #JHPartner #sponsored

Stepping from one column to the next, I felt like I was in a game of Tetris. As basaltic lava cools over long periods of time, geometric rock columns form and stretch as high as the eye can see. Mother Nature is truly magnificent. ✨

High above the highlands. ✨ I remember reaching this viewpoint and wondering if this was all real or just a dream. The views were captivating and I felt like I had just stepped into a painting. 🎨

100k ✨ It’s honestly pretty wild to wrap my head around, and now that the moment is here, I’m sort of at a loss for words. A year and a half ago I bought a one way ticket to SA with a camera, a backpack, and with a guy I had only just met. The universe has its way of working things out when you take risks and all of you have helped me confirm that. Instagram may only be a platform, but it has allowed me to connect with so many of you, build a personal brand, and showcase what I love most out into the world. I‘m incredibly fortunate to be able to inspire so many of you to chase your dreams and do better for yourselves and for this planet we live in. I couldn’t have gotten here without the help of my friends (mostly met through IG haha) continuously pushing me, my mom for helping maintain my sanity and supporting my spontaneous decisions, José for challenging me and being there through every step of the way, and for every single one of you. I’m excited to look ahead at everything that is yet to come. Thank you 💛

If you’ve been following my journey, then you know I’m constantly on the go, and as a freelancer, the future is totally unknown. Because of that, a major goal of mine for this year is to begin growing my savings account. Although I’m not a client, I am beyond excited to be partnering with @johnhancockusa. They’ll help provide the tools and knowledge I’ll need to help steer me in the right direction and begin planning for the long-haul! #JHPartner #sponsored

I’ve seen many photos of Iceland in the past and thought I knew what to expect before going there. I was hugely mistaken! The most unpredictable weather topped by endless majestic views. The sights, the views, the memories, all unforgettable. From catching sunsets in canyons, waterfalls in caves, cloud inversions everywhere, and black sand beaches covered in pieces of iceberg... Iceland was unlike any place I’ve ever experienced before and blew me away every single day. ✨

Our Iceland trip is coming to a close and I’m feeling a lot of different ways about it. I’m sad to leave my new group of friends. It’s funny how spending 24/7 with strangers makes you really get to know them. I’ve never experienced a group that were as down for an epic hike as they were for making the silliest dance videos. Sad to leave these unbelievable landscapes, and that I didn’t get more photos to share or time to shoot due to limited time. But I’m so excited to be able to finally sit down, edit, and share with you our epic adventure. Excited to sleep in my bed and focus on my mental health (aka watching Hulu 😜) and to catch up on lots of work that’s been too delayed. This trip has been a wild, unforgettable, ride, and I’d do it all over again in the exact same way. Thanks @long.explorer & @furstset for jumping in and helping me with my content. You guys showed me a kindness that I’ll never forget. Thanks @patheight & @furstonetravels for all of the laughs and for carrying my belongings 💛😂 and thank you to @annacatharina__ for listening, being there, and becoming a true friend.✨

Driving through Iceland for the past 4 days and it’s been one of the most absurd experiences... 😂
.
Back to back 3am wake up calls to catch sunrise, 1pm bedtimes, bloody ankles that can’t heal from wearing the wrong boots on hikes, a serious lack of food and water. I fell asleep sitting up straight yesterday which has never happened before in my life. Last night in the Highlands, we drove through the dark to make it to the next destination due to our tight schedule. The fog and rain were impossible to see through and we all wound up driving into the middle of a lake. The other group’s 4x4 got stuck and began sinking deeper and deeper into the mud.
.
We tried digging the car out but to no avail. Because of the lack of sleep, food, and with no idea what to do, stress levels were high. The rain kept pouring and we were soaked... eventually everyone began to relax a bit, the girls began to make food for the crew, and around 2:30am we were finally able to get a call for help. Because of the messed up plans, we actually got a chance to catch up on sleep. 😴
.
Even though this isn’t at all what we had planned for, things ended up working out. The towing company got the car out of the river, and we are currently heading to the nearest town to recoup. I think the moral of the story is that it’s really easy to get caught up in “getting the banger” but sometimes, safety and practicality are a lot more important and sustainable.
.
But throughout all of the craziness, I’ve never experienced such otherworldly landscapes in my life. We’ve shared so many laughs together, danced, drank wine in a hot spring, I think I even cried at some point 😂 and we’ve truly been having an absolute blast. This IS adventure, and the stories we’ll never forget.
