Imagine that all of your favorite Instagram and Social media accounts were not just thumbnails but real people for a night. Over 150 influencers in one room, it was like meeting my idols, content creators with talent out of this world! Thank you @influencerawardsmonaco for putting this fantastic event together.
´Hollywood got the Oscars, but Monaco got the Influencers Awards´
We flew to Nice airport, and from there by helicopter a 9 minutes short flight to the state of Monaco, with its 2.020 km2(0.780 sq mi), it makes it the second-smallest state in the world after the Vatican and adds another country to my forever growing ´Countries that I’ve been to´making it 44.
Both Maria and I was nominated under the category ´Travel´won by @Jacob, well deserved, his travel photography and storytelling is just amazing, and what a humble guy! I had the honor to meet both he and his girlfriend @hayley_ at the event, I hope our travel paths cross sometime soon again, you are so talented and sweet, both of you.
Monaco is a state with luxury and it was fun to swap my hiking boots for high heels, put on jewelry and an evening dress, something I don´t do very often, but every girl should play princess once in a while. The gala night itself was magic, they had turned The Meridien Beach Plaza hotel into a picture perfect jungle, perfect table setting, flowers, trees, orchids, and human-animal body painted artists performing dance in true African Jungle style. Princess Stéphanie of Monaco representing one of the awards and her daughter beautiful Pauline Ducruet together with Lolita Abraham, Thomas Peeters, Maxime Giaccardi founder of The Influence Awards Monaco event, well done, I am so impressed by all hard work you put into making this an unforgettable event for us all.
I met @pilotmadeline for the very first time, she has always been one of my biggest inspirations on Instagram, since the day I changed my name to @pilotmaria (guess who inspired me to that name 😉) and after three years ´knowing´ each other online it was a true honor to meet you in person, so sweet I could not even have imagined.
I am leaving Monaco with nothing but happy memories and smiles, I am beyond excited to be on board this train, already looking forward to 2019 Influencers Awards Gala.
Thank You ❤️
