chelseakauai "It’s about knowing where you are going. Not forgetting where you started. It’s about having the courage to fail. Not breaking when you’re broken. Taking everything you have been given and making something better. It’s about work before glory and what’s inside of you." #michaeljordan

@travisburkephotography highlining a few thousand feet above the valley floor. There's something incredibly rad about watching your friends come alive in their element..Knowing how much hard work came before the effortlessness. There and back first attempt with zero falls! Couldn't have asked for a better end to the weekend.

chelseakauai Window to Yosemite Falls, dropping 2,425 ft...Then we hiked to the top and oh how I appreciate exactly how grand that number really is. 2d

chelseakauai I have fallen for the wild flowers and misty roads along the sea. Big Sur, CA
I can't even begin to capture the beauty here, but dang if that didn't stop me from taking a thousand pictures. Thanks for the photo tips and all the sudden stops! @travisburkephotography #roadtrip #Getoutstayout

chelseakauai Moonrise over the meadow Although it may look like morning, this was actually my first view of Yosemite Valley when @travisburkephotography and I drove in late at night under a rising full moon. To the left, the lights of climbers spending the night suspended from El Capitan before continuing their journey the next day. Sleepy eyed and frozen fingered as I took this, I couldn't imagine how they felt.
And as if that isn't #magic enough, that one bright star visible in the sky is actually the planet #Mars. It was the closest to Earth that it will be for the next three hundred years. I am in awe of this place, of our world in general.

chelseakauai Dear San Francisco, your weather is beyond splendid. I'm in love with the light here! (and lack of humidity️). Came to work for a few days and now road tripping through CA with @travisburkephotography! 🚐#woopwoop #vanlife #natureofproof wearing @avaskyhi 2w

chelseakauai For all our amazing technology, I feel like we as children of the "first world" have lost a little bit of our magic. Playing will (I hope) always be a universal language. Love, determination, creativity, loss, progress, ingenuity, laughter I have seen them manifested in so many ways across the globe, but this one was one of my favorites.
We ended up here largely by accident and got to hang out with a crew of kids on this enormous bay somewhere in East Java. Using solely the materials around them - a particular kind of dried leaf, fishing line, trash and plastic from the beach they make rad kites that actually fly! So insanely fun and intuitive they even figured out how to make counterweights so that the kites would fly straight. Such a special memory.. The boys in a lively soccer game and me doing this until the sun went down and we all went our separate ways.
@proofeyewear @indtravel #wonderfulindonesia Thanks for the photo @travisburkephotography! #kitesforlife #NatureofProof

The best month of sunrise commutes, shoes half on, backpack of snacks, and no idea what day of the week it was with @kylormelton @mikaikarl and (pc) @travisburkephotography #sunrise #littlemoments

chelseakauai Last summer my first time romping through the red rocks of Sedona, I loved these colors. Strange how much this reminded me of home :) @visit_arizona Excited to be road tripping through the south west US starting next week! #Letyourselfgo #cntraveler #roadtrip 3w

chelseakauai I have dreamt in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.. -Emily Brontë
Shot on #GoPro by @travisburkephotography diving off of east Bali, edited by me. Something a little different, but so fun to try swimming with that much fabric swirling around! #wonderfulindonesia #Bali

chelseakauai To my mother, the original dreamer and mountain seeker. Your fierce belief in me has made me courageous when I had no other reason to be so. Thank you for teaching me, amongst a million other things, that the world was a big beautiful place open to anyone with a sturdy pair of boots and the will to wander.🌎 #happymothersday from your little shadow #finallyhome 3w

chelseakauai I'm just going to keep staring at this photo from #Indonesia until I forget that we just paid $835 in baggage fees. Yippee #buyyourbagsonline #jetstaraustralia #lessonslearned with @travisburkephotography who didn't know any better either
On the plus side I'm thinking of starting a travel blog to cover the places I get to go in more detail and maybe even some travel tips, itineraries, and tricks from the many things I've learned! #Travelgram #stillsmiling

chelseakauai I believe the direction of our thoughts shape our reality. I believe our most beautiful creations come alive when the ingenuity of humans align with the wonder of nature. @proofeyewear #NatureOfProof

chelseakauai It's ok to be uncertain, how boring life would be if our paths were always paved. As I go into the last week of my trip, the thing I will miss the most is the constant sense of surprise. The frustration and struggle and uniquely magical experience of the new and the unknown. Of seeing a photo or hearing whispers of a place and my heart saying, I want to go there :)
With the right combination of planning, some trust, and a bit of luck Travis and I managed to motorbike and hike (in the pouring rain no less) to find this oasis, one of the most uniquely captivating spots I've ever been to. For this shot @travisburkephotography is actually standing at the top of another smaller waterfall and with a third falls out of frame to my far right. @mizulife #Protectwhereweplay #wonderfulindonesia #epic #howisthisplacereal

chelseakauai I said to my soul, be still and wait...the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. -#tseliot from East Coker III @indtravel #wonderfulindonesia #Wakatobi 🙃
Getting a little creative, decided to put my edit on our image since @travisburkephotography posted the original version. What do you guys think? They give me two different feelings, sort of cool how one image can do that.

chelseakauai May we always stand in awe at the power of tiny, individual actions moving together to create change. A million droplets falling, a thousand trees growing. The drum of infinite footsteps, muscles in unison. Collectively, we can move mountains. Together, we change the world.
Taking over @freepeople's new @fpmovement account today if you want to follow along or ask any travel/photo/fitness related questions I would love to answer!

chelseakauai Before freediving, backpacking, or surfing there was always this. The first love of a shy little girl, who loved books about faraway places. I'm glad she was a dreamer @freepeople #sunset #goodnight #dreamers
Last minute sunset rides in Indo after our surfing guide mentioned his neighbor had horses. Dream big little ones, never know where life is going to take you :) Photo @travisburkephotography

chelseakauai My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved. I have been given much and I have given something in return. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure. -#OliverSacks because I could not have said it better myself. Sunrise on the edge of a volcano looking down into a crater lake with a smaller hot spot steaming inside of it. We hiked to that peak in the far distance two mornings later.
Been off the grid the last 4 days on tiny islands so a big happy belated birthday to this legendary human pictured above @travisburkephotography! Stoked we could all be down here as you circled the sun one more time :) Cheers to evolving as we revolve! @indtravel #wonderfulindonesia
