It’s already been an exciting 2016 for Nina Dobrev.

The Vampire Diaries alum has been sharing envy-inducing vacation photos from her Hawaii vacation, which has included swimming with sharks and skydiving.

“When I said jumping into 2016… I meant it LITERALLY,” she captioned a video of her skydiving, adding in another photo “Sending love and positivity from the top of the world!”

Dobrev, 26, also shared photos of her palling around on the beach with her friends, with the ladies indulging in yoga and an expedition to swim with the sharks.

The photos come the week after the actress jetted off to Utah to host a cozy Christmas celebration at a $5,000 per night Airbnb with her family and boyfriend boyfriend Austin Stowell.
