Getting to the top of Ijen crater requires waking up at midnight to partake in a very steep and strenuous hike up to the rim of the crater while wearing gas masks to tame the toxic, sulphuric air. Being one of the largest acidic crater lakes in the world, Ijen is also one of the only places where you can see and experience "blue flames" as you witness the local sulphur mining operation.

If you just started to follow me, you may not know that I moved 2 years ago from Switzerland to Miami. When people were asking me what I was going to do after my apprentice ship in Switzerland and I told them that I was going to move to Miami, they either laughed at me or gave me unhelpful advise and opinions which I never even asked for. I was literally the only person that believed in myself and in my dreams. My first year in Miami, wasn’t any better either, I found myself in situations I didn’t wanted to be in & met some horrible people along the way. But no matter what was happening around me, I always knew that I’m going to stay strong and keep going.. ☝ Today, I’m kind of happy that nobody believed in me and to all the negative experiences I had to go through because it made me even stronger! So this was a little story about my past but now let’s focus on the future and our goals. ✨❤️ #StayStrongGirls #EverythingIsPossible Also a big thank you to Shai and his Hairsalon @shai_salons_international for giving me this beautiful hair makeover. I’m loving it & can’t stop to play around with it.
