Good morning Adventurers!
Before I catch you up on all things fun and paradise, I would like to pay my respects to the victims of the recent attacks in Manchester, UK. I wish the community strength and peace from the bottom of my heart. It’s so hard to believe that terror is a reality, threatening our freedom to live freely without intimidation. I can only focus on continuing my life in a fearless manner, exploring and connecting with people around the world. Tragic events like this certainly make me want to hug my loved ones for a little bit longer! I’ve been on the move a lot lately so it’s nice to be home working and enjoying New York. There’s something about 2017 that has my travel bug ready to explore. This year I’ve visited 3 new countries already: Myanmar, Switzerland and just this last weekend, Cuba. Airfare has been low and opportunities to travel have been flowing in. You know me, I say yes to adventure. I’ve been sharing much more often on my Instagram feed and stories, so please tune in to my account to stay more current with my adventures! @ninaornsteinI spent much of April in Todos Santos, BCS, Mexico producing The Paradise Story’s Spring Adventure. Alongside the talented Jessica Che (photog), Trini Id (art director) and Shauna Murray (assistant photog), we captured some extraordinary footage of four Instagram influencers on adventure. The Paradise Story is a part of my company Paraiso Adventures and is a crowd funding marketing concept for brands looking to maximize their Instagram presence. I’ve been highly focused on developing this and learning a lot so please follow along as I expand this part of my company.
I look forward to the next couple of weekends at home in NYC, enjoying the city and relaxing. I’ve been craving my routine, my smoothies, my bed, my fitness classes, my friends, family and down time. The lull, however, is not for long. But I’ll be savoring every second of it. Austin and I made a must-see in NYC list to work our way through in June so I’ll be sure to share those day itineraries with you!
Get outside and enjoy a safe and adventurous Memorial Day Weekend!
