Buenos Aires Street Art

    0
We landed in city #3: La Paz, Bolivia!  But, I’ve still got more to say about my beloved Buenos Aires!   I saw 5 art museums, each with their own style.  But, some of the best art in Buenos Aires is on the streets.  Just like New York City, or Venice, Cali, street art is part of the cityscape.  It is encouraged and celebrated.  And, I...

CLAIRE CAME TO VISIT

    0
Hey guys, have I ever told you about a dreamboat named Claire? We met when I lived in Bangkok for 5 months in 2011, and her first impression of me was summed up in one word: "annoying."When I flew to New York to interview for Harvey's desk, she, serendipitously, had meetings in NYC at the same time. And she was staying at the hotel next...

Cusco, Peru: first impressions

Seven of us landed in Peru yesterday morning. We shared meals, got caught in a hailstorm, tried (and failed) to join a walking tour, snuggled baby llamas, and got (more than a little) tipsy on pisco sours.Here are a few first impressions from a truly blissful day, exploring with friends: It's so pretty it's so prettyCusco's charm is hard to resist. Walk anywhere around the Plaza...

Santiago, Chile

    0
I visited Santiago, Chile for the first time twelve years ago as the gateway to my first South American adventure. American Airlines was running a promotion that gave a free international round-trip ticket anywhere in the world that the airline flew in exchange for buying a round-trip ticket to Florida and California. I did a weekend trip with my roommate Nick to Fort Lauderdale and then I must...

Day 158

    0
I justify staying in my apartment all day by saying it’s for the sake of pulling off a birthday surprise (which we did, which was amazing), and then I’m “that vegetarian”/”that basic girl” who goes out to a steak restaurant and eats all – all – of the bread and orders a salad, proving that at my core I’m really pretty lame and not even six...

In case you haven’t noticed (or maybe you got bored and unfollowed me on Instagram – rude), I created my own #30daychallenge.  Nope, this doesn’t include cutting out alcohol or working out for 30 days in a row (no gracias to both of those challenges).  I only care about how many pictures I can take with a llama / alpaca / baby goat / cholita...

After an amazing trip to Bolivia and a tiny hiccup in our travel to Argentina, I was finally in the country that I would spend the last 2 months of Remote Year in. Month 11 would take place in Córdoba and month 12 would be in Buenos Aires. For this post, I am going to combine month 11 and 12 into one blog. Argentina is...

Father’s Song

Gregory Orr, 1947Yesterday, against admonishment,my daughter balanced on the couch back,fell and cut her mouth. Because I saw it happen I knewshe was not hurt, and yeta child’s blood so redit stops a father’s heart.My daughter cried her tears;I held some iceagainst her lip.That was the end of it.Round and round: bow and kiss.I try to teach her caution;she tries to teach me risk.

Easy Ten-Minute Vanilla Bourbon Caramel Sauce

    0
I don’t know about you, but I’m a girl who likes that little somethin’, somethin’ to complete her meal.  Something that makes a healthy dinner feel slightly naughty so that it satisfies or turns something bland into a delicious dining adventure. Sometimes, that’s just a few chips on the side of a sandwich.  Other times,... The post Easy Ten-Minute Vanilla Bourbon Caramel Sauce appeared first...

I’m (not) Done

Exactly a year ago today, two words passed my lips that I could have never imagined myself saying, I'm done.I was done meeting new, amazing, inspiring people to only say goodbye a few short days later.I was done falling in love with a city, done being heartbroken when I left too soon, and done silently crying on planes (or trains, or taxis).I was done packing...

One of the Seven Wonders of Waterfalls

Waterfalls. A place where water flows over a vertical drop in the course of a stream or river. Who doesn't love them, right? The Route When my Remote Year adventure became a reality I started looking into a possible small trip before reaching Montevideo, my first destination. Since I had to fly from Portugal to Uruguay I thought of doing a pit stop in Brazil....

NYC #x3E;#x3E; PRG

Getting to the airport for an international flight always makes me a little bit nervous. And the last time I went to JFK, I ended up arriving later than I should have and then having to run from one terminal to another. Not fun. This time, my dear friend Katie drove me from Brooklyn to JFK and officially became my hero (thanks, Katie!), saving me...
