I had a bunch of witty hair flip puns to post with this, but I’ve been doing the cheap ass short caption thing a little too much recently while I’ve been finalizing things on the site. A lot of people are really great at bite sized, witty captions... I am not. It just feels like I’m not being myself when I don’t share a small piece of my soul with my words.
Anyway! This website project has slowly been driving me mad since October, but it was really important to me to do this myself opposed to hiring a designer and developer. It’s my passion project. I really, really needed to show myself that I posses the creative skills to build out a travel and photography site/blog. It might be taking five months, but I am damn proud of it.
I appreciate you guys being patient for nearly 5 months now. I needed to make sure the site had enough content to actually be helpful, opposed to it being a Krissy & Ben circle jerk. Few more days!!

I’m currently getting all the Tulum blogs formatted on the website, which technically means I’m allowed to post a related photo and break my own “no posting” rule. So here’s a picture @benharclerode took of my butt at one of the many cenotes I wrote about.🌴

Haiiii. Breaking up all this tropical shit with an announcement. I told myself that I’m not allowed to post on this account until the website is completely done and launched. So baiiiiiiii ✌🏼 and hopefully you hear from me again very, very soon.

I think one of my favorite things that happens during travel, is when you end up walking aimlessly for hours, lost in conversation. Doesn’t matter if it’s walking down the beach, walking through town, or walking up a hill. You just start walking. Then an hour later, you stop, look around, & just breath it all in. You’re not worried about how much time you wasted, where you are, or how long it’s going to take you to get back. You’re just entirely in the moment & ok with where life is at that exact point in time. 🌴😌

Update: I’m now 99.99% certain I have the stomach flew. I’ll spare you the details of how I came to this consensus.
So here’s a picture of me looking like an idiot with the remote, trying to take pictures of myself on the beach last week (my version of a selfie). This—looking really stupid & capturing it—happens A LOT when it comes to the tripod/remote/timer thing. Instagram obviously never sees these shots, because I always post one of the THREE good ones I was able to capture. Three of ohhhhh 35-50? A lot of you ask me about taking pictures of yourself. It’s hard. I’m still figuring it out. I’ve learned that being ok with looking stupid was the really the biggest hurdle. So instead of posting the shot where I’m making a much better face & I successfully hid the remote, here’s this less “perfect” (but far more accurate) selfie.
In my own defense, I didn’t exact have anywhere to put hide the remote in this “outfit”.

I’m 85% sure I have the stomach flu. So I’m going to keep pretending I’m on the beach instead of the couch.
Mr @benharclerode always gets the best views.

Forever finding the hidden local spots where the taxis don’t go. This is why you ALWAYS rent a car. I’m protecting the name, but here are the coordinates...

Hai guys. Thanks for following all my Tulum adventures over the last week. I’m very excited to crank out the blogs I have planned to help you explore the area.
Headed home now, which means I have a lot of plane downtime over the next 8 hours of travel. Anxiety & travel don’t go hand in hand, so yea, I’m that person who buys in flight WiFi to stay distracted from my own brain while I’m in the air.
Seems like a great time to do a little photography q & a for anyone interested. I don’t know everything about photography by any means, but I’m happy to share the insight/info that I do have. So if you have questions about picturing taking, cameras, gear, or editing, hopefully I can answer them for you today!
