Croatia: A Few of my Favorite Things

    0
Spending a month living in Split, Croatia was beautiful, relaxing and definitely challenging. We lived there during off season, so half the restaurants were closed for the season despite saying open on google, grocery stores/convenience stores closed by 8 pm and the chances of meeting any expats were extremely slim.

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.

Here are a few of my favorites: 1. The...

When you speak with Maja, there’s this gentle ease that just radiates from her. You might think she’s quiet or an introvert, but catch her leading a tour or talking about the great outdoors and she is as enthusiastic as she is charming. Maja was born in Dubrovnik, Croatia, raised between there and the city of Split. After moving away and traveling for a brief...

I’ve been sitting at this desk in my quaint studio in Hoi An since March 8th and have been in Vietnam since February 24th. Hoi An is a beautiful coastal fishing village, and a UNESCO heritage site, just 10 km from...

Five Ideal International Destinations for Health Conscious Travelers

    0
I’m admittedly a difficult person to travel with for one main reason: I have a lot of dietary restrictions. I am a pescatarian with a whole host of food intolerances. While I won’t bore you with the list, the biggest offenders are wheat, meat, dairy and sugar. As much as I would love to be able to eat the cheap and authentic street food in...

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...

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...

Ok, in reality...

  A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. — Steve Jobs Last week was missing a post because I decided to switch to a...
