The best thing about the Gili Islands (other than the kittens) is that you can swim with turtles. Beautiful, majestic creatures. I managed to swim alongside one and we went up for air together. Magical ✨

Edit: I was too busy filming turtles and have no photos of them. Maybe I’ll share a video soon 🐢

Gili T had a lot of cats, which made me very happy. This little baby was so playful, & it’s mother looked so tired 😹 nothing better to get home to after a hard day at the beach than tiny kitten meows! ❤️

Sneaky portraits have always been my jam, and they’re super easy to capture with my new Fujifilm X-Pro2 and 56mm lens. Finally getting used to no longer being a Canon girl 📷

I had an exceptionally awesome weekend over at Gili T for @johnonolan’s birthday. We really lived that island life! This was taken at sunrise right outside where we stayed. Getting up at 5a hurts but luckily I could nap on the beach in peace after a few photos! More to come 📸

Rainy season can’t stop me from floating with nigel the flamingo. 🌦Hoping for bluer skies at the weekend as I’m going somewhere super exciting, but it’s top secret so you’re just gonna have to wait and see! ——> I wrote a thing on my blog over at kymellis.co this weekend, link in bio 💌

Weekends in paradise 🌞🏝
Went to check out Karma beach in South Kuta, but it was £50 entry for 2 people and they could only offer a spot in direct sun with no shade and the waiting list was 16 deep. Of course you can’t pre-book either. I hate pointless “exclusive” stuff like that!

So instead, we found a back entrance to the public beach next door which was a little slice of heaven. Very quiet and in the evening, hundreds of locals appeared to enjoy the sunset at low tide. What a gem of a spot! 
This was in my top 3 beaches for sure. Where’s your fave beach?

Those HK views! I got a new Fujifilm Xpro2 whilst here and I’m stoked on it. 📷
After a short week of madness I’ve finally made it to Bali, where I’ll be for the next couple of months. The warmth, relaxed vibes and abundant veggie foods were a welcome sight 🌅

Made it to Hong Kong. Wandered around & did some shopping yesterday until the jetlag rendered me a useless human. This city is crazy! 🇭🇰

Had a great weekend in Canada’s wine region — Okanagen Valley. Tasted a lot of amazing wines, learnt heaps about the process of making wine & bought a tasty bottle of Pinot Noir home. I had a blast! My favourite spots were probably @hatchwines & @rollingdale winery. Both had great casual vibes, no pretentious BS & some really different wines to try. Rollingdale in particular blew me away with their organics & ice wine that I didn’t hate. 10/10 would wine again.
