There are freedom vehicles for all on a quest. Vanagon. Sprinter. Econoline. Bicycle. Hula Hoop. Surfboard. Skateboard. Our. Own. Two. Feet. Within our bodies plays out the cosmic life-death-life cycle as cells die and regenerate. Daily, the body creates 300 billion new cells. The carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in our bodies were generated 4.5 billion years ago from the death of a star. Yet, each of our 75 trillion cells exceed the number of stars in the galaxy. Boscha, our van home, is beyond badass but our bodies are beyond words. Love it, move it. Explore your edges with its brilliance. Being in our bodies exactly as they look and feel now is freedom.

As we mentioned earlier this week, we're awful at getting photos of the two of us together. So when @sweet.escape invited us to London for some photographs with the very talented @beatrici we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get some non-chin upwards selfies of us together. Once we were over the complete awkwardness of having our photo taken we had the best time around Shoreditch. You can use @sweet.escape in so many cities, so you know you can come away from a holiday with some guaranteed good photos! Such a good idea ❤️😍

The Food-Obsessed Travelers
10. Girl Eat World
Ang Koo kuih, a nyonya cake made of glutinous rice. "Nyonya" is the term for women in chinese malaysian culture, which means this cake was brought to Malaysia through the influence of Chinese immigrants. Traditionally the cakes are red-colored and filled with mung beans – hence the name "ang koo" which means red tortoise, illustrating the shape of the cake which resembles tortoise shell. 🐢🔴 However the ones i found on Armenian street in Penang are not only rainbow colored, they are also filled with different flavors! I forgot what's what (they were mango, coconut brown sugar, red bean and original mung bean) but my favorite was the coconut brown sugar one! I have always seen this cake in Indonesia too but never knew what it was called 😅. Ang koo kuih was traditionally eaten for special full moon festivities but can now be commonly found in markets. ❤️💛💙💚 #GirlEatPenang

15. Bolt And Keel
For those of you who are new here, we thought we would let you get to know Bolt and Keel a little more! Bolt: on the left. Tabby (possibly some Maine Coon in there?). Large and fluffy (it's just fluff;). He enjoys being carried while hiking, Keel's licks, and running around the house randomly for no reason. Keel: on the right. Tabby. Short haired. He is intense and would rather hike than paddle. He doesn't like to be picked up on the trail, but loves hard scratches and affection. And clearly loves to give the camera blue steel eyes. #boltandkeel
If you think dogs are the only travel sidekicks allowed, think again. Bolt and Keel are brother cats, and they’re pretty cute.
