I Spent 6 Magical Days In Paradise at The Retreat, Costa Rica

    0
You know that catchy AF song from the 80’s that goes “Oooh, baby do you know what that’s worth? Oooh heaven is a place on earth” (… apologies in advance for the fact that it’s now stuck in your head for the next 48 hours)? Well, that was playing in my brain for the entire 6 days I spent at The Retreat Costa Rica. To...

The best dining experience is a mix of good food, good people and serendipity

Death Road

    0
Everyone said if you’re going to La Paz, you have to bike the World’s Most Dangerous Road.  So we did.  It wasn’t easy, but it was exhilarating and despite the steep drops and feeling that anything could happen, it was done very safely.  Started at the top with the snow-capped mountains, descended into the clouds and came out in a more tropical jungle climate.  Even...

Valle De La Luna

On of the perks about our extra days in La Paz was getting out to some spots we hadn’t originally had time for such as this one: Valle De La Luna – or Moon Valley.  Named after its unique rock formations, it was like walking through another world.  La Paz is a city with diverse backdrops from rows and rows of mountainside houses, to snow...

Distant Love

    1
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...

The Sun

Mae Ra Moe, Thailand. 2018.  Today, once again, from a tent on a beach, at 6:42am, I watched with amazement, the sun presenting itself to the day, as each time is the first time. It reminds me of the opportunity we have as people to enter the day, brand new, with style and grace. There were hues of light blue, purple, orange, and pink that...

Side Tripped Out

Really the only kind of problem I’ve ever had is a first world problem. Maybe the one that sounds the most ridiculous is that I’m exhausted from side tripping. But looking back, it’s been an amazing two weeks. Joey visited (!!!), we went to Phuket & Phi Phi, and it was an absolute dream to travel together and explore these beautiful places.
