Adriana is a beautiful person I follow on Instagram. I love her captures and wish we could have coffee & tea, have overcast adventures while meeting forest dwellers and watch Audrey Hepburn films. Although she is not a photographer, her documents suggest other wise. All photos came from her instagram at http://instagram.com/adrianasinke
Hello my name is :
Adriana and I am a wife, an explorer, and a dreamer. I love making the most of every spare moment! I married my best friend Adam three years ago. This has been my proudest accomplishment and biggest adventure to date. I love reading, being outdoors, spending hours in cafes, and listening to music. I am currently working as an accounting assistant for a small non-profit association. I have my BA in environment, resources, and development (basically geography). I absolutely love what I went to university for and would love to work in my field someday. I am considering pursuing a masters degree!
Congrats on being a Instagram-Suggested User, what do you love about photography+documenting?
What are your vices?
I love to explore, my favorite places are:
I like to think of myself as an explorer/adventurer! It is my dream the travel the entire world someday. That being said, I try not to forget about all the incredible places to explore that are close to home. Some of my favorite places in the world are:
Turkey – we went here for our honeymoon so it has a lot of sentimental value! That aside, I think Turkey is an incredible country with so much to do and see. Unfortunately many people don’t really think of Turkey as a vacation destination. We travelled the whole country and I cannot possibly say enough good things about the people, the culture, the sites, and the food!!
Lighthouse Park – I love spending my weekends here. It is easy to find a quiet and private place right by the ocean. We bring snacks, blankets, and books and have the perfect time!
The West Coast – we drove from Portland to Cannon Beach and then up the entire coast back to Vancouver last summer. It was an incredible and beautiful trip, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
My Aunt/Uncle’s cottage – My family owns a small cabin on the Sunshine Coast in BC. It is so beautiful there and I always have an amazing time whenever we visit. It is the most beautiful and peaceful cabin!
5 Things that Heal me:
Laughter – I am a happy person (most of the time!) and I love to laugh. If I am feeling down I try to find someone or something that will make me laugh and my mood immediately improves. I believe there is true healing in happiness and laughter.
Family – My family is the most important thing in my life. Both my husband and I are truly blessed to have such incredible families. We moved from Ontario to BC about a year and a half ago leaving our family behind. I miss them everyday, but if I am every feeling like I need a pick-me-up I know they are only a phone call away. All our family members are so encouraging and supportive, they are truly our best friends. It is a wonderful feeling to know that no matter how long you have gone without talking, your family is always there and always loves you.
Music – I believe that music is one of the most powerful forces in the world. It has a way of evoking emotions like nothing else. I can find music I love for every mood I am in. I also love the nostalgia that music creates. There are certain songs or certain artists that cause vivid memories to come rushing back to me, it is truly powerful!
Literature – I love a good book. There is nothing I find more relaxing than curling up with a good cup of tea and an amazing book. I imagine things very vividly so I think this is why I enjoy reading so much.
Nature – I feel most calm and at peace when I am outdoors. I feel so uplifted and calm when I am outdoors, away from the bussiness of city life, away from the noise and the stress. There is nothing more calming than relaxing by the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves crashing!
