Back in Amsterdam! When your soul sister comes to town, it's most definitely a good reason to return to one of the coolest cities in Europe
Can't thank you all enough for the kind messages, comments, and for connecting with the words I wrote to my younger self (link in bio case you missed it). You made it an amazing birthday! Here's a tip if you find yourself in Aruba: baby beach is super popular but Rogers beach next door is calm and quiet (📷: @whatspaigewearing)

Today I turned 31. Ten years ago this would've seemed impossibly old to me but back then I had no idea what really laid ahead of me in the world and to be fair I still really don't. I wrote a letter back to my 21-year-old self who was on a sticky dance floor rocking out to top 40 music thinking that that was the pinnacle of cool. Among the life lessons I shared with my younger self was the power of honesty, the beauty of compassion, and the skill of patience, among so many other things that became clear over the last decade. Click the link in my bio for more of the life lessons I shared in the open letter to my younger self. You may be surprised by what you find in there! And if you want to give me a birthday present, tag a friend in the comments who you think might like seeing these pictures. Thank you all so much for another year traveling the world together!

Chillin with the homies. They look a little pink, must be getting too much sun! (📷: @whatspaigewearing)

The adventure just kept getting better at Arikok National Park in Aruba. From off roading in a Jeep to exploring caves and swimming in a natural swimming pool (two photos ago), this is what made me appreciate Aruba. It has a wild side! (📷: @whatspaigewearing)

Is this the stairway to Heaven? Felt like driving along the highway to hell to get here with all of the cacti, sharp coral, and arid landscape which made way for some of the most gorgeous coastal adventures! I didn't realize Aruba was like this and am pleasantly surprised (📷: @whatspaigewearing)

When you stumble upon a swimming pool that no architect, designer, nor construction team could ever top. Aruba, there's more to you than meets the eye (📷: @whatspaigewearing)

Sunset jacuzzis are always better shared with friends. And champagne. And strawberries. #BarceloStories #BarceloAruba
Gimme that Caribbean sun and that BLUE water! So excited to begin my birthday week in Aruba! There will be lots of diving, boating and adventuring with @barceloaruba and some awesome video too. Stay tuned! (More info in the link in my bio) #BarceloStories #BarceloAruba (📷: @whatspaigewearing)
As though it couldn't get any dreamier, a couple of swans came out and plunged me right into a fairytale
You can find me amongst the flowers like Alice in Wonderland 💐
Growing up I can remember my mother spending much of her free time in the garden. One thing that she always wished she could grow more of was bulb plants like tulips, but it's really tough in a place as warm as Southern California. But then we went to flower heaven in Holland and she was on cloud nine, and I was too 😊🌷(📷: mom @pysankylady)
I see you, Amsterdam! What a gorgeous city (📷: mom @pysankylady)
Summer is just around the corner. Can you feel it? Bid Denmark goodbye today! Was such a peaceful time on the coast with mom in our little @kobmand_hansen beach house but can't wait to see how beautiful Amsterdam is! #hygge
I'll miss this seaside perfection. It's one of the coolest front yards I've ever had! That's my mom up there enjoying the sea view while I revisited being 6 years old playing in the grass. The peace, tranquility, and coziness I felt at our @kobmand_hansen house was magical. I guess there's only one word for it - #hygge
Experiencing something that's truly Danish - Hygge (the closest I can come to a translation is coziness, but I invite anyone Danish out there to contribute a better one!) 📷: Mom @pysankylady
The light on the coast of Denmark keeps blowing my mind. It's always soft, everything always looks some shade of golden and cornflower blue. It just adds to this perfectly peaceful feeling. What a find living this coastal life with @kobmand_hansen
Then the sun comes out on the Danish coast 🙏🏻🌞love this peaceful @kobmand_hansen beach house! (📷: Mom @pysankylady)
