Travelgrammer Of The Week: Chelsea Yamase

This week’s traveling Instagrammer is Chelsea Yamase.
She’s better known as @ChelseaKauai.

Chelsea has spent the last several years exploring the world as she pushes herself both physically and mentally. So how does she manage to travel like this?

Chelsea has built up a solid reputation in the travelling content industry. She’s work with nearly 100 major brands and her content now has global recognition.

All that work has really paid off and allowed her to explore the world and share her unique perspective of it. At this point, her career doesn’t show much sign of stopping so she’s definitely worth a follow.

For me, travel can be a door or a window. Of course I want to see the monuments, the beauty, the best ... but to only do so feels a bit like window shopping. Looking, but with no real investment or connection. When I travel I want to be transported. I like being knee deep in it, home cooked meals, side roads, and real conversations. It’s harder to come by but that’s the good stuff. 🙂 - A few months ago I spent a week with @contiki x @treadright experiencing Jordan through their lens of sustainable tourism. It is to this day one of my favorite trip I have ever been a part of and they just released a short video summarizing our trip. In Jordan we focused on a women’s coop called Iraq-al-Amir which focuses on creating financial independence for local women (whose unemployment rates are around 30%) and preserve regional heritage. We learned to make traditional flatbreads (I’m kicking myself for not remembering, but I think it’s called Zaatar?!), picked figs and pomegranates, glazed pottery, and took a cooking class on a rooftop in Amman amongst many other things. - We are the defining factor shaping the route tourism takes. And it seems right that something invaluable to me gives something back to the place it is received from. Thanks @Treadright @celinecousteau @Contiki for having me and showing me one such way. Swipe up link to the video is in my story! #makeTravelMatter #MyJordanJourney 💛 - Photo by @robstrok - *sidenote for those who watch the video: All drone shots were taken with a permit and we had a military escort accompanying our group. Do not bring your drone to Jordan as it will be confiscated.
