LEBANON. 🇱🇧 The old souk of Byblos is more a mixture of bars, restaurants, and souvenir shops than a traditional souk, but it still has a lot of charm and culture.
In the morning on a week day, the souk area is actually quite quiet and mellow as most cafes and bars are still closed since most patrons would be at work during this time.
But when the night comes, the colored lights turn on, giving the ancient city a magical glow. People are sitting outside, drinking beers, smoking shisha, enjoying a night out with friends, listening to music, sharing food. —
In Lebanon, night life is a big thing. Restaurants and cafes are open late, bars and pubs are filled with people, and night clubs are swanky (but with expensive cover charge).
Lebanon is the perfect example of old and modern intertwining, tradition and change, the past and the future, of conservative and of excessive. It’s a mixture of everything, which can be frustrating and alluring at the same time.

Breakfast after a long flight to Qatar: zatar bread and a latte. $10 total (!!) but it was really good. My friend @christineatik always talks about how great zatar is, so when I saw it here at the airport I knew I had to get it🥖
#prAnaAmbassador , @annaehrgott is taking over our Instagram Stories tomorrow as she journeys with a team of women through Israel and Jordan in search of adventure, surf, and new experiences. Tune in bright and early to get a peek into the expedition through Anna's eyes.
Do you ever ask yourself, “What will it take for me to become the person I really am underneath my conditioned limitations?”
There comes a point where we have to decide if we are going to give into or go against that voice.
A few years ago, I left my cozy government job, moved to a whole new city and became an entrepreneur all at the same time. It’s been no easy road but in less than 2 years, I have established core relationships and have grown my clientele across: #NorthAmerica /#LatinAmerica , #Europe , the #MiddleEast and #Asia . I am also looking forward to heading to #Africa next spring to be one step closer towards meeting my goal of having clients in every continent in the world within 5 years! It sounds ambitious, but I don’t believe in borders or limits when it comes to striving to make an impact while living in this world that we all share. Life is too beautiful to live within comfort zones. We truly must be willing to do what others won’t, go where no one has gone before and dare to take risks without giving into doubt and the possibility of failure. No matter how crazy a dream we have, it’s important to continue to dream more than others think is practical and expect more than others think is possible. Why? Because you owe it to your future self. 🙏🏽💙🌎
