👋 Since social distancing and Stay Home orders are keeping us apart, we're using April to get to know our members! --- Today's member feature: Robin @robintbailey --- "I love this Hikerbabe group because of the WOMEN! Very fun ladies, and this group stays very engaged through Facebook (Suzy does great posts to keep us engaged on the group page, and many of us are Facebook friends, so we are all over each others' pages). I'm probably one of the oldest in the group but i feel totally like I fit in because we are so diverse, and as I said, they are all SO nice! ❤ To stay active I alternate between walking in my neighborhood, which is actually a decent cardio walk because I live in the mountains. I rarely see neighbors out walking, but if I do, I just cross the street way before I get near them and wave as I go past. When I don't walk, I also have dumbbells and a mat, and I find different workouts on the internet. I have been enjoying those, because I am finding classes I may not otherwise try. I am determined to emerge from this quarantine a better version of myself in every way, so I am indulging in all types of self care; mind, body and spirit. I feel it's important to work on mindset and I do all sorts of training along these lines. I make sure I do a short Bible study everyday, and simultaneously take care of my skin by putting on a different face mask and leaving it on while I do my Bible study." --- @hiker_babes #hikerbabesrock #hikelikeagirl #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #community #keepitwild #wanderlust #stayandwander #inspire #adventure #empower #whyihike #trailsisters #hikingislife #forceofnature #womenwhoexplore #girlpower #exploremore

✨ Traveling through Patagonia was one of the defining moments of my travels. What a difference a month makes. We were there more than a month ago. Where we were some people probably weren’t aware of what was going on around the world. There were zero cases of covid when we left (that was reported). Life has changed in a blink of an eye! The definition of normal life is quite different now. Enjoy your weekend guys! Stay safe and connected. Sending hugs from Canada. xx

Throwback to my last hike, a little under a month ago now. I had no idea at the time that social distancing would be a thing, or that I would not be able to go hike for awhile. It’s driving me bananas to not be able to be on top of a mountain right now, but I will gladly do my part to help flatten the curve. Staying off the trails right now is the best thing that you can do to keep others safe. ❤️ . . . #vegan #veganhiker #pureadirondacks #newyorksbackyard #hike #womenwhohike #womenwhohikeny #hiker_babes #hiker_babes_ny #adk #adkmountains #hikeadk #adk46er #46er #hikelikeawoman #she_explores #womenwhoexplore #pureadirondacks #adkmtnclub #choosemountainswomen #idhikethat #adirondacks #winterhiking #adkfamilyfun #adirondacklife #pureadk #leavenotrace #nature #lifeinthe.adk #outdoors #mountains

Picture of the “morning light” prompt from @cjust I’m pulling prompts left, right and centre, wherever I want to dip in and out of. Whatever gets my mind flowing and whatever fits my work. I just want to feel some semblance of small joys during these dark dark times. Today was my first day out of isolation in 35 days, I took a walk, with my wheelchair alongside me- so I could take breaks when needed. I wanted to walk forever. But since we live in a place where there’s little hills, I could only walk as far as the car park and the end of the drive. I made the most of it though. Catching glimpses of a world untouched, blissfully unaware of the pandemic... I’m going to post a few pictures. I’m quite happy with how they turned out. I find this one especially delightful. #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhitephoto #bw #bwphotography #photography #photographer #shotoniphone #fineart #art #femaleartist #womenwhocreate #womenwhoexplore #explore #artist #flowersofinstagram #flowers #flower #daisy

It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. It’s not what you see, it’s how you look at it. It’s not how your life is, it’s how you live it.🦋 Photo credit @lisahomsy

. . . Oh, my love, but you have forgotten. You are all the things you so love in this world. . You are the moon, the stars, the sea. . You are one with the grass and the pines. . You were created with the mountains and the lightning and the swamps within your veins. . Your cells are the river and the turtles and the wind. . You are your mother and father and your grandmother. . You are all of these things, love. You are not a lone island, forever lost. . Because they are also you. . Xo .

This quote by Charles Dickens describe 2013 the best: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Oh 2013. Thinking back on this year, I don’t know how to explain it. This was the year I got more independent, lead projects, crossed things off my bucket list. Became more independent. This year I also travelled for the first time outside of Pakistan on my own. I remembered being scared shitless when the plane landed in Istanbul. But this trip made me change my life trajectory. After this trip, the world just seemed different. It seemed that there was so much more, so much to explore and experience. So many possibilities! . . . . #istanbul #istanbulturkey #istanbul🇹🇷 #taksim #taksimsquare #adventure #travelling #browngirltraveling #browngirlbloggers #fun #nostalgia #instagood #optoutside #femaleAdventurer #breakingthebarrier #womenwhoexplore #WomenWhoTravel #solowomentravel #solowomentraveltribe #keepexploring #forceofnature #pakistanitraveller #Turkey #desitraveller #throwback #throwbackthursday #throwback🔙 #browngirltravels #lifechanging #sheexplores

Daydreaming of traveling again. My hat has never been more fitting! 👒 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We will travel again one day. But eventually the prices will probably go way up to make up for these losses. So how do you save money when you travel? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me, I do a lot of research and usually get an affordable place to stay. Then I splurge on food and experiences. As long as the place is clean, safe, and in a good location, it doesn’t have to be super fancy. I go to places to see them, not stay at the hotel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For example, this is Sveti Stefan, which yes, we referred to as Sweaty Stefan. 😂 We scoped out this side of the beach on our way back from another excursion and found that it was too crowded. So the next day we paid for the private beach on the other side. It was expensive, but totally worth it. Not only were there barely any people, if you want to both go swimming, you do not have to worry about your camera, wallet, etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _______________________________________________________ #montenegro_dreamers #montenegro🇲🇪 #montenegrophoto #visitmontenegro #instamontenegro #gomontenegro #montenegrowildbeauty #mojacrnagora #balkans #adriatic #waytomontenegro #girlsmeetglobe #citizenfemme #sheisnotlost #womenwhoexplore #girlsborntotravel #shetravels #femaletravelbloggers #globelletravels #girlsthatwander #travelgirls

So this global pandemic got me thinking about whether this is the extinction of our species (don't panic, I'm pretty confident it's not, and this is 💯 my anxious lizard brain talking). But then thinking about extinction and my fearful lizard brain got me thinking about... DINOSAURS 🦕🤓 . This photo is an oldie from 2014 in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, specifically in la Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley). This crazy high altitude desert is home to some of those most surreal landscapes I've ever seen... And also rocks that look like dinosaur heads 🦖 . So what does the pre-Instagram travel blogger do? Pose like a t-rex while her boyfriend (now hubby!) takes a photo, duh. . About dinosaurs though, please tell me I'm not the only nerdy traveler who like REALLY wants to see dinosaur fossils in the "wild" someday? . I actually made these lists: . Places I've Tried to See Dino Fossils and Failed: . 🐚Broom, Australia, where there are allegedly dino footprints in the rocks on the coast. While trying to search at low tide and before sunrise, Tim and I both skinned ourselves up on the rocks and ended up going back to bed bleeding 😂 . 🐚Patagonia, Argentina, where we had scheduled a tour to hike a petrified forest that has dino fossils, but it was canceled due to flooding 😭 . Places Where I Saw Dino-Era Things: . 🐊Stromatolites in Western Australia, which are the world's oldest life forms. . 🐊South Dakota, where I visited a wooly mammoth archeological dig 🤠 . I'm Nerd Level 10 when I travel - give me allllll the science/history/nature facts 🤓how about you? . . . #chilegram #chile #iamtb #thetraveltag #adventuregirl #backpackersintheworld #sanpedrodeatacama #chiletravel #chilefotos #chile_natural #chile🇨🇱 #visitchile #moonvalley #dinosaursofinstagram #gltlove #proudtobeftb #journeysofgirls #travelgirlsgo #womenwhoexplore #hikerchick #optoutside #womenwhohike #travelblogger #travelgram #welltravelled #travelstoke #seetheworld #traveltherenext #travelmood #thewanderingtourist

Do you have any trails in your neighborhood that are not too crowded? . . . . • • • • • • • • • • • • 📸 by @lkheaney It’s so wonderful outside today. I’m doing my best to avoid crowded areas these days, so I’ve been hitting the mountain bike trails in the Don Valley when the paths shouldn’t been too muddy. Trail running is such an amazing workout, and I feel so refreshed after spending time in the sun and amongst the trees. 🏃🏻‍♀️ #running #run #runnersofinstagram #covid_19 #selfisolation #stayingsafe #socialdistancing #staysafe #coronavirus #getoutside #girloutdoor #runningmotivation #stayhealthy #stayhealthyandfit #womenwhoexploreontario #womenwhoexplore #andshesdopetoo #flattenthecurve #learningeveryday #donvalley #trail #trailrunning #womenrunning #chaseyourgoat

Like a cover girl of the Sunshine story book. -Shot by my sister- . . We were bored in the noon and decided to dress up and click photos .Just wanted to see our skills and create a space for indoor shoot . . . Over the time I have realised it’s alright to be camera shy and feel awkward to face the camera . So I decided to take my photos from behind and now I so much love it. Without feeling awkward I can totally do these pictures . . . . #stayhome #gogirlguides #wearetravelgirls #travelgirl#womenwhotravel #sheisnotlost #girlboss#instatravel #travelette #damestravel#dametraveler #travelbug #traveladdict#travellife #traveldeeper #femmetravel#outdoorwomen #girlsabroad #girlsborntotravel #girlswhotravel#thetravelwomen #womenwhoexplore#passionpassport #ladiesgoneglobal #girlaroundtheworld #beautifulexplorers#girlswhotravel #girlslife
