Week 11

The end of last week and the beginning of this one were completely and totally insane. Between the month-long festivals in Lisbon coming to their crescendo and Ilana/Sonia coming to visit, I kissed any chance at sticking to/developing a routine goodbye. I also learned that Joaqin was the least of my problems. Due to the festival of St. Anthony on Monday night, Portuguese independence day...

Weeks 12 & 13

The past week has been an incredible experience- I knew Morocco was beautiful and crazy and hectic and hot, but I truly didn’t even know the half of it. The country is GORGEOUS. Like eye opening, stunning, don’t-know-what-to-do-with-yourself gorgeous. From mountains, gorges, deserts, and valleys filled with luscious forests, to huge crazy cities and smaller more relaxed ones, this place has it all. Plus people...

This one is going to be short, guys. And that’s a good thing. I arrived in Sofia early Tuesday morning and IMMEDIATELY felt more relaxed. It’s amazing how certain cities will just do that to you (I’m looking at you, Prague). I took this week to decompress from my last three weeks of being around people by being a hermit in my adorable, huge apartment....

I’m here! I made it to Asia! (Minus one wallet..but we won’t talk about that..) g Hanoi is quite simply insane. As organized and regulated and civilized as Europe is, Hanoi just throws all of that out the window. There seem to be exactly zero rules here. We went from the quiet stillness of a sleepy eastern European town (Sorry Sofia, you’re pretty much a...

Week two in Asia was just as good as week one, if not better. Hanoi still never ceases to amaze me and I’m just melting of happiness with the food…and because it’s sooo freaking hot. No joke, it’s like 95 degrees with 95% humidity here every. single. day. g Work has gotten less crazy and my body seems to be getting a little better with...

Bear with me this week, y’all. This is going to be a long one. (But don’t worry, there are also a lot of pretty pictures to get you through!) What I did this week: Went to lunch with the city team on Monday- Kat and I shared a cab there and then somehow found ourselves paddling a swan boat across a man-made lake because #Hanoi....

I made it to Thailand, y’all! I’ve been dreaming about going to Thailand for honestly probably 10 years or more- basically as long as I can remember. And I’m finally here. And not just here to visit for a week or so. I’m going to be here for FIVE weeks. Of course that’s not nearly enough time to explore this majestic country, but it’s a...

Week 22

Ahhh! So one of the things I wanted to prove to myself this year was that I can travel alone. I’ve never done it- this week was my first solo trip ever. Which tbh was equal parts exciting and terrifying. It’s awesome to not have to accommodate another person’s desires, but it does also remove that safety net (which unfortunately is a legitimate consideration when...

This is rape.

Today, I will talk about…RAPE I wish I could give it more spaces.I am a coward. I am unworthy.  It has been 14 years and I haven’t spoken publicly about my truth. I am terrified right now. My fingers can’t even reach the keyboard.  Welcome to my life. My beautiful life on Instagram, but my pain within.____I wake up with the struggle to open my eyes...
