Peaceful nights in Moorea 🌴

kelsealoha

Sooo I’ve been spending a lot of time on a boat lately and it’s becoming more apparent to me that this is where I belong. Being out on the water every day gives me the feeling of euphoria and a sense of adventure that every day is going to be different. I’ve never felt more alive and at peace with where I’m at 💙🤘🏽 Thankful for this crazy life that allows you to chase your passions and dreams 🐋🦈🐳🐬🐟🐠 (Many ocean pics coming soon)

kelsealoha

I have been having a blast shooting this lagoon! One thing I absolutely love in life is clear ocean water and Moorea definitely does not disappoint when it comes to that ☺️💙

kelsealoha

Making it a goal to spend every day in the ocean this fall because how can I not when the ocean is this clearrr 😊 PS- Thankful for new friends with same hobbies as me and taking this photo! @catsharks 🤘🏽💕 Now time to go play in the water!

I feel like everyone should go turn on Beyonce’s, “Move My Body” song right now and get up and start moving! - I love to move my body and have a very active lifestyle, so lately I have picked up surfing as a new hobby of mine. One way I keep my overall body wellness up is to take collagen. These Tone It Up collagen packets are a super convenient way for me to mix in my coffee on the way out the door to go surf or hike. Collagen is also great for keeping your hair, skin and nails healthy. - #TIUCollagen  #TIUPartner #sponsored - And if you wanna check it out more go to... www.MyToneItUp.com

Been on this lil rock for 5 yearssssss now ☺️ What an amazing place to call home. And I am in constant awe of its beauty, both above and below sea level, the entire time I’ve lived here 💙

kelsealoha

Everyone has crazy schedules and lives but when they all align and you get to spend quality time with those who matter in your life, those are some of the best times 💛 pc: @vincenthawaii Just missing a few of our other pit house girls... @lexicapri @summaseaart @tashanicole313 💕

We’re coco for coconuts 🌴🥥 Climbed half way, took a break, contemplated how I’d get down if I made it to the top, then just jumped down and Shannon found one on the ground instead. So muchhh easier 😋

kelsealoha

Missing those mornings in the Dolomites 💛 Watching everyone’s stories traveling around this summer is giving me that travel urge realll bad right now. Ready to get off the island for a bit next week 🤘🏽✌🏽

kelsealoha

Crazy that I used to run everyyyyy day of my life. Up until I moved to Hawaii, I ran track and field and it was my entire life. I obviously miss it all the time but to see where my life has taken me and gone since moving here has been life changing. Like now I even run underwater! Two of my favorite things combined, ocean and running haha ☺️🏃🏼‍♀️🌊 TY Hawaii 💙 pc: @shangerdanger

kelsealoha

Every time I wake up and see that the Ko’olaus are super clear, I stare up at them and think, “Whyyyy am I not up there right now?!” Welp, this time I was finally up there and woke up on top of completely clear Ko’olaus. 😍 Five days before this, I hiked up and camped socked in a cloud and woke up in the rain. But honestly both times were so much fun! Despite the weather and there being a view or not, it’s always a blast if you have the right company ☺️💕🤘🏽Thanks for adventuring so much with me and being my YES friend lately @shnooz

kelsealoha

Like howwwww is this earth so crazy beautiful?! Just trying to live my days to see more views like this and doing my best to try and make it a better place💙 #respectourearth

kelsealoha

The best kind of traffic jam 🦈🤘🏽

kelsealoha

Hello? Is anybody home? pc: @storyofsage

kelsealoha

Not a bad spot to stop for a water break and some snacks 💙😊 What kind of snacks do you bring on your adventures? Im curious cause I need new snack ideas haha

kelsealoha

Crazy it’s almost half way through 2019. Time is always flying by, so I hope everyone is making the best of their year! For me, I’m always day dreaming about life and the future but am trying my best to live in the moment and be present. Although I am beyond stoked for the second half of this year so let’s get it going🤘🏽😊💛

kelsealoha

I’m seriously obsessed with being above the clouds. And spending my time with amazing friends. And watching sunset. Okay that’s all I’m obsessed with... maybe with seashells too. 😂🐚💙

kelsealoha

Spent the weekend jumping in several different bodies of water with my roomies who have never been to Maui before. I love showing around those that I care about places that have stolen my heart and getting to see their reactions for the first time 💙 pc: @summasea

kelsealoha

I was talking about this valley recently with some others and realized how much I miss it but also realized how much I don’t know about it. There is so much history and different stories about the places we love and I feel that learning more about a place will always make you love it and respect it that much more 💚

kelsealoha

Missing these light ray showers in Bali. 💚 I love losing track of time going through old photos, it almost makes you feel like you can time travel back to those moments for a quick second. 😊

kelsealoha

Spent the weekend jumping off canoe boats & cliffs, looking for shells, surfing, drinking wayyy too much caffeine (jk I can never have too much caffeine) and playing a whole lot of dominos. Thank you Kauai 💕🌺 ps- Here’s a few pics from our time out on the water

kelsealoha

Early mornings west 💙 - Jumping in the ocean is always the best way to wake up for me. Even better than coffee but that’s a very close call 😂💦☕️

kelsealoha

Finally been starting to surf a lot more lately 😊💕 since moving to this island I’ve picked up a lot of hobbies but not sure why surfing hasn’t been one that has stuck more until now. It’s always been fun and challenging to pick up and learn new activities and I’m stoked to finally be spending a lot more of my time catching waves 🌊 🏄🏼‍♀️

kelsealoha

I haven’t been traveling as much lately, I have just been working a lot on this lil Island I call home so I can save up and travel more later this year. It’s been nice being in a routine though and I’ve had a ton of time to read more, watch documentaries I haven’t seen and pick up new hobbies. But when I look back at some of my travels from last year it gives me that urge to immerse myself into new countries & cultures and return to ones I fell in love with 💙 I can’t wait until the day I go back to New Zealand 🇳🇿 pc- @alliekelleykai

kelsealoha

Mountains that I’ll never get tired of hiking and exploring. Ko’olaus 💚

kelsealoha

Lately you’ll either find me lookin’ for shells or lookin’ for caves. 🐚💙

kelsealoha

Up in the mountains I love with people who love them just as much as me ☺️ Hiked down these stairs that were literally hell for sunset and shortly after was back at the top making a lasagna MRE for dinner and catching up with old friends 💕 pc: @josiahwg

kelsealoha

Can we just please be best friends already?!? Whale I’m really missing the ocean and need to go dive asap. Okay byeeee 💙🌊 pc: @alliekelleykai

kelsealoha

Definitely up there on the list for one of my favorite places Ive ever camped. Woke up the next morning socked in clouds so just stayed all bundled up inside my tent but what was better than these views was being able to spend the time hiking with a group friends who I never get to see anymore 💚 @meganhassa @josiahwg @storyofsage

kelsealoha

Couldn’t even fit the whole guy into the frame 😳

kelsealoha

Still wild to think back to being in a place where nobody spoke even the tiniest amount of English. Traveling has made me realize very quickly that most of the people in this world can speak more than one language. While I haven’t had the need to, I honestly feel a bit embarrassed that I can only speak one language. Living in such a touristy destination I encounter others all the time where there is a language barrier and it is a very weird experience not being able to communicate with others. I feel like I’m missing out on meeting and learning about others in this world, so this year I’ve made it a goal to start relearning a new language! I only hope that one day I’ll be able to say that I’m fluent in more than one language. pc: @storyofsage

kelsealoha

Just trying to be one with the hammerheads. Had such an amazing experience the other day swimming with a school of 20-30 hammerheads. You just never know what you’re going to see out there 😳☺️💙 @wildhawaiioceanadventures

kelsealoha

Always happy when I’m here, the many faces from last weekend in Kauai 💚 thanks @jackie_fiero for all the shots!

kelsealoha

Diving down to listen to the whales always makes me feel like I’m hanging out with them. I’m not ready for whale season to be over any time soon 🐋💙 pc: @storyofsage

#mountainhardwear #korpreshell #ad Not going to lie it’s gotten a lot harder lately for me to wake up early for sunrise because I work late and it’s been a lot chillier than normal in Hawaii, so I was so stoked to work with @mountainhardwear and try out their new Kor Preshell jacket. I finally got up early to catch the sunrise and it was so nice to have this lightweight and water resistant jacket for my early morning adventures. I have found it’s perfect to wear in the wind, sun and shade. Since I also carry a lot of heavy photography gear while hiking it’s perfect to bring along as an extra layer that doesn’t take up a lot of space and weight in my backpack. I’ll definitely be getting back into doing more sunrises and check out my story to see the jacket in action.

If you look closely you can see another island 😍🌴

kelsealoha

When I moved to Oahu it wasn’t very hard for me to convince my sister to come join me. After a year of living here she moved out this way and in the 3 and 1/2 years of her living here we have been able to experience so many amazing adventures together as well as travel to multiple countries around the world. Hawai’i is far but having family here has made it seem so close to home. As hard as it is to watch one chapter of her life end, it’s more exciting to watch her start a new chapter of backpacking around Europe and moving to Australia. You inspire me more than you know and watching you grow and chase after your dreams pushes me to question when I’ll start a new chapter of my life and to not settle. Hawai’i won’t be the same without but can’t wait to come join you on your adventures 💕 @lexicapri

kelsealoha

After spending hundreds of hours working and saving to travel thousands of miles away and then spending another 20+ hours sitting and waiting on a boat in the pouring rain, I finally got a glimpse of these amazing mammals and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. 💙🐋🐳

kelsealoha

Nature walks in Hawaii. 💚⛰ - I have been stoked to be apart of the Deuter Ambassador team the past half year. It has really given me a chance to find the perfect backpack for my adventures. This backpack in particular is the Speed Lite 22 SL and I love that it’s made to fit a woman’s frame and is the perfect size for quick hikes out here in Hawaii. It’s just big enough to fit my camera cube and small enough to travel with. 😊 🤘🏽 Hope everyone was able to get outside some this weekend! #deuter #deuterUSA #deuterambadssadorfamily

I have never been colder in Hawaii than I have been this past week. Generally Hawaiian snow is all the white wash you see in this photo but yesterday I stepped in a pile of snow on the Big Island! Crazy to see something you would never think to be on a tropical island. This world truly keeps you one your toes 🌎 ❄️ 🌴

kelsealoha

Something a little different with @shadowfalcon1234 🧡 pc: @alexajade__

kelsealoha

Missing these Reunion sunsets and being on the other side of the world 💛 PC: @storyofsage

kelsealoha

Not even my wide lense could fit this whole guy into frame 😳💙🖤

kelsealoha

My heart is so happy and full now that I’m hiking with @shadowfalcon1234 again 🖤 Also stoked to have found a sunny spot on a very rainy day. PC: @alexajade__

kelsealoha

One coastline I will never ever get tired of going back to. 💚

kelsealoha

Grass is always greener on the other side. - Got to see this coast from the air this week, which is always incredible, but I’m definitely missing the days when we could get there by foot.

kelsealoha

One of my friends always tells me that I need to be more confident about my photos and work. I don’t like claiming to be something I’m not. I get caught up in comparing myself to others. And I don’t think I’m perceived to be a photographer. At the end of the day, I’m cutting myself short by not embracing myself as a photographer. I paid for all of my camera gear and have taken the time to learn photography. I enjoy learning more and seeing myself improve. I look back at some of my photos and can’t believe I took them. This photo for example is simple but I love it. I am a photographer and I need to claim to be one and believe in myself so others will too. 💙

kelsealoha

Sitting on this rock obviously made me really really happy. Rock on. 🤘🏽

kelsealoha

We pretty much missed most of the sunset light cause we stopped at the gas station for espresso and snacks on the way 😅🤷🏼‍♀️ Still an unreal view nonetheless.
