Watching this made me feel so inspired, so motivated, so full. I will be in Bali next month with my university, and live for soul connecting conversations. just so you know haha. I have had one question on the back of my mind during this video, and was wondering if you have any advice. not sure how to put it into words, but I have all these things I want to do and create and share. however I still find it very difficult knowing people from previous schools etc. will see / judge it. i still live in my hometown which makes it much more difficult for me to not care, I do try though. also I find unfollowing people who I might run into difficult. Love you Raya, glad you’re back! ❣️

Farrah Soliman says:

John 8:12 – When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, β€œI am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Matthew 5:14-16 – β€œYou are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Definitely reminded me that I'm called the light of the world! Thanks for the reminder to spread that light~

I would love for you to talk about the topic of β€˜putting yourself out there’ life and people can be intimidating, and I want to grow in this area!

I Was Here is SUCH a beautiful song 😍

Rhianna Skelton says:

I so wish I was a filmmaker right now! I'm only an amateur photographer posting to IG right now but I hope to be at a higher level by the end of this year. Thanks for being a constant inspiration

Hello amazing people!
I am a tourism management student writing my dissertation. I have been inspired to do my dissertation on travel vloggers' influence because I love the community here, on YouTube, and, even more, the travel content. Therefore, I would like to ask you voluntary complete my survey it should not take too long around 2-3 minutes. It is completely anonymous. Here is the link:
Thank you so much!

I’ve been watching your videos couple years now and it’s amazing how I can relate to you and what you are saying! I have also been growing more than ever in last years and it gets kind of more intense all the time, but I love it. Right now my goal is also to find the light inside me and spread and express it. I have started to see so much love and light in this world and I want to do everything I can so all that could come out to everyone to see, feel and experience. Oh my I could talk about this for hours πŸ˜€
I would love to hear more about your growth journey and the way you are making your vision stronger. So many people are going trough this right now so we need to share our storied and support each other that way!
Thank you for being so open and inspiring and spreading your light! I love it ❀️
Greetings from Finland!

Love your videos!! Maybe you could do a video about how to have deeper conversations with people, how to connect better because sometimes we strugle with that. It would be really helpful. πŸ’›

I love your videos and all that you stand for. You have been such an inspiration to me to start travelling and making videos. Thank you because all the light you share is contagious 🌞

Crystal Sard says:

I love how every time you looked at your list you were like "oh yeah!" Lol. You're so adorable. 😊❀

NadineSpeaks says:

I love deep, vulnerable chats as well. So excited for your future endeavors and adventures 😍

Jennifer Diodonet says:

Love your idea of spreading light. I think sometimes we get wrapped up in trying to figure out our place in the world that we forget to look at others and make them see their light! I think if this is done more we will see more growth, achievement and happiness πŸ’™

Sarackless says:
Hi, my name is Sarah and I LOVE travelling! However, before exploring the world I would like to finish my education, and for that I need your help! Are you between 18 and 35 years old? If you would please fill out my survey and help me finalize my research for my thesis, that would be much appreciated!

Jennifer Aza says:

@rayawashere You'd be happy. You inspired me to grow more than ever. And I soo happy for you. And I'd like how to continue doing what I really want without pressure, but, I mean, have you ever felt like you're doing sth that your really want and people don't like and you get confused like.. I'm doing good or not? It'd be an interesting topic I guess. Love u Raya, and hey!! You should to visit my country, Colombia! We have beautiful places and you'll get beautiful pictures. We wait for u and of course Louis too. (When you come, u should to taste Ajiaco, Bandeja Paisa and Cholado hahaha) I love u. God bless u.

Jess Steven says:

Hey Raya, love your videos! Could you please do a video on how you plan your videos? πŸ™‚ I have a ton of videos but am not sure about how to approach planning them!

Jim W says:

Spread your light is appropriate because you are one of those people that just radiates light and goodness in everything you do. I have an office job in a routine life, so getting to travel around with you & Louis through your videos has been awesome and inspiring. Continue to spread that light. What you do has an effect on people in so many ways. Some get inspired to travel and others just get a smile on their face from a post or video to offset a bad day at work . Thank you for that.

Heather M says:

You are the sweetest person Raya! I would love to grow in my love of travel and people. I do not like the 9-5 i have right now.

tangee ventures says:

You are so honest and humble, sweet Raya! Thanks for spreading your light. You encourage me to seek more personal growth. πŸ’›


You guys meet so many interesting..people along the road..maybe interview..people that are sharing their light..even by little things they are doing… and show. A part of their light…

Laura Krause says:

I wish I could take up this videography and photography job! I am graduating film school in 3 weeks, my schedule is so flexible and I LOVE travelling but unfortunately my skill wouldn't be advanced enough πŸ™ maybe one day!
