For two-time SI Swimsuit model Sara Sampaio, fall hasn’t really even started. The Portugal native has spent the last month or more traveling around for various modeling engagements and work trips—and is swiftly avoiding the cooling temperatures. From fashion month events in New York and Paris to an event in Los Angeles, she is continuing to soak up some warm weather far into the fall season.

Now, the 32-year-old has traveled to the Galapagos with fellow models Kelsey Merritt, Jasmine Tookes and Taylor Hill for a conservation event hosted by Leaders For Change. And while it may be a work event, the group is still managing to enjoy some time in the sun. Sampaio took on the warm Ecuadorian weather in a fabulous pale blue textured one-piece swimsuit, a pair of cuffed jean cut-off shorts and a light blue pinstripe button-up. She accessorized with a royal blue ball cap and a chic pair of Prada sunglasses.

“Back to one of my favorite places in the world. Galapagos @lfcsummit,” she captioned an Instagram carousel featuring her oceanfront look. The series also included a couple snaps of Sampaio and the rest of the models dressed in their evening best for a dinner event. She wore an ever so slightly sheer black gown with a vibrant abstract pattern throughout.

Though her travel has been work-related, the destinations certainly make the obligations worthwhile, in our opinion. And the resulting content is making us wish for a tropical—or, at the very least, warm weather—trip of our own.
