Lima wrap up: Reflections on Month one

    0
Lima was a city that grew on me. I found a lot of things challenging about Lima: the hot, humid weather (and lack of AC) nearly drove me to the brink on numerous occasions, electrical outlets that are too loose to hold a plug, and my stomach struggled for the first 2.5 weeks with the

Morocco: A Few of My Favorite Things

    0
Come January, our new home became Marrakech. While I can’t earnestly say it was a spot I’d highly recommend living in, I would definitely encourage booking a trip. Marrakech was loud, chaotic, colorful and eccentric but the whole of Morocco was the real treat with many hidden gems and cities such as Chefchouen, Tangier and Essouiara. Here are a few of my favorites: 1. The...

Remote Year: One Month Reflection

    1
It’s weird to think that I’ve been traveling for almost 2 months now, and almost all of that has been international. It’s even weirder to think that I’ve been living in Lisbon for five weeks and it completely feels like home. So much so that the idea of moving to Croatia tomorrow fills me with anxiety, and leaves me a little bit sad. Leave Lisbon?...

Remote Year Month #8 in Review: Lisbon

I can’t believe I have now wrapped up my time in Europe. Lisbon was an incredible city to end the experience in, full of culture, captivating beach waves and incredible port close by. I also flew to London and Belfast on two separate occasions; the weekly travel reminded me of consulting travel projects. Below is my month in review of Lisbon. Took a little longer...

Unlike regular breakups, where we have rituals, romcoms, cliches, basically a script to follow, friendship breakups are a much murkier proposition.How do you tell a friend that your lives no longer align? That you no longer find the relationship mutually beneficial? You don't dislike the person, you just aren't inclined to spend time or energy to continue to...

Distant Love

Five months before heading off on my year-long journey abroad I played a silly April fool's joke on a stranger. A joke turned into an instant undeniable connection. We were in Austin, he lived in Houston, I lived in Boston, and I was only moving even further away. Nonetheless, our only option was to give it a shot.Being in a long-distance relationship is no one's...
