chelseakauai Just finished two days of health screenings and getting to see actual surgeries take place for some of the patients we are sponsoring. Together our @proofeyewear team and @helpintl have screened more than 400 people and sponsored over 100 surgeries. The Philippines is such a mix; half serenity, half chaos, poverty and simplicity, the kindest people and the most heart aching stories. #ThePhilippinesProject #travelgram 4h

chelseakauai Early mornings in the Philippines. We've had a lot of long days and 4:45am wake ups to get to our health screening locations. I wouldn't change it for the world. Internet here is super spotty but if you're interested in seeing daily updates (like rad dance parties at the orphanage we went to yesterday) follow me on snapchat or check out @proofeyewear + @helpintl. #ThePhilippinesProject 2d

chelseakauai Lucky enough to leave the world behind and ascend above the clouds, even if it's just for an afternoon.

chelseakauai The first thing I saw after 24 hours of travel and it made my heart happy. Smiles are universal, playing is part of the human spirit no matter where you go. @proofeyewear @helpintl #ThePhilippinesProject #travelgram 5d

chelseakauai I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me. #Emerson Currently finishing the incredibly lyrical White Oleander. I leave Thursday for my volunteer trip with @proofeyewear and @helpintl, I would love any book suggestions for the plane! :) #travelTuesday

chelseakauai Structured stillness. Man made converging with nature made and my mind lost somewhere in between.

chelseakauai Quick 13 miles of fun, a somewhat failed bush whacking camp mission and a selfie at 1000 ft. Ohh the coast, never easy, always a hilarious adventure🏼️ @proofeyewear @aletheia_phos
Thanks for letting me borrow your camera for a second @dyllazo :)

chelseakauai Because as pretty as it looks to stand in front of a waterfall, this is way way more fun :)
Grateful to go with a crew full of crazy laughter who were kind enough to teach me about native plants along the way. Shot by @ryanschang23 as I descended the last waterfall of the canyon during our weekend in wonderland. #808canyons #teamtorelli #canyoneering

chelseakauai Getting far away and standing very still under a beautiful night sky makes me think of some of my favorite people scattered around the globe. We grow up, time passes distances expand. But I'm so grateful to know that we'll always be connected - revolving, evolving and growing together while looking up at the same night sky :) @aletheia_phos #apconnection

chelseakauai Will, imagination, and the right gear. @nemoequipment //photo @bejamin
There's something I find extremely satisfying about carrying everything I need on my back and being able to set it up in places like this. Thanks @nemoequipment @westcomb for keeping us warm.#Alaska #Kenai #adventureanywhere #exploretocreate

chelseakauai Feeling wet and soggy and full of pure JOY at successfully finishing my first two canyons this weekend! The things I have seen these last two days made me reimagine my version of heaven.

chelseakauai I had forgotten what it felt like to be scared, for my feet to tingle and my palms to sweat. It's a beautiful thing, trusting in your own two feet :)
I took this of @kellynt and her bf as I held onto a rope halfway up the next cliff face. Sorry for making everyone who has me on snapchat very nervous #happyplace #ridgehikes #becareful @westcomb @mizulife #myadvofyear

chelseakauai Life is pretty empty if we have no passion for what we do. What a tragedy to reach the end of your life and only be able to say "I got by without having to do too much." -#CharlesKoch
@bejamin took this photo of me in Alaska and I laugh when I look at it because I feel like my face says it all: I'm tired, hungry and hiking in socks up a cold ridge line. Wtf haha. Modernity makes my life so easy that in many ways I think we miss out on those character building challenges..for me hiking, and diving have become a way to reconnect with the power of my own mind. I love being pushed to my personal limit and learning to persevere, to know that I can and I will when it counts :) It definitely helped me just get through working 126 hours the last two weeks!! Now for a well deserved day off🤘🏻photo @bejamin #Alaska #mizulife #humanpoweredadventures #myadvofyear
