A Weekend in Lagos

    0
After five weeks of fearing all food in Mexico, I breathed a sigh of relief to step foot in Europe, a safe  zone. Portugal has not disappointed. From pastel color schemes around every corner (along with a daily pastel de nata….or two) I do believe I could live in Lisbon forever.However, if you are like me, Influencers have been blowing up your feed with Lagos...

What I Learned Traveling Latin America for Six Months

    0
Things I have LearnedAll dogs are not actually for petting. I will never be okay sharing fernet with strangers from a sawed off plastic bottle dripping with BPA, backwash and germs. Mezcal > Pisco > Aguardiente > FernetI had a conversation with my manicurist and felt like I was finally ready to graduate Middle School Spanish. If you're out there Johnson & Johnson, let me do an Imodium...

Portable Health and Wellbeing

    0
As I sit on my bed in Mexico City with a debilitating fever, watching it rain outside, taking whatever work calls I can in between coughing fits, hot tea and hot showers all while texting my roommate in the other room who has had a stomach bug for the past 12 days, it seems like the right time to address health while traveling. It is clear...

Packing for Remote Year: Must Haves

    0
After having spent two weeks in the states, I had the opportunity to drop the things that I am not using and pick up things I need. Knowing what I know now, it seems like a good time to check in with my packing list from day zero. Here are my must haves and "things I wish I hadn't brought" on Remote Year. If you...

It’s Not Okay to Miss Home

    0
“What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.” — Jack Kerouac, On the Road Maybe not in so many words, but this is what I have been subconsciously told...

Product Review: Sand-Free Tesalate Towel

    0
My Australian friends have been singing praises for Tesalate towels ever since I met them in January. Since I was going back to the US this month and tiring of my double Sand Cloud's bulkiness, I thought I might give a new one a try. Tesalate was kind enough to offer me a free towel in exchange for an honest review. Luckily, I was headed...

The Trendiest City in South America

    0
The city synonymous with Narcos, Escobar, cocaine, jungles and Guerilla warfare. If that is what you think of when you think Medellin, you would be wrong, wrong and more wrong. While Medellin may have once been (and maybe still is?) the cocaine capital of the world, there are more than a few reasons to visit it…and visit sooner rather than later.Tourism has grown 12% year...

Packing List: Salkantay Trail

    0
As promised, here is my packing list for the Salkantay Trail, and every multi-day hike I have done this year. Salkantay Trail can be either 4 days and 3 nights or 5 days and 4 nights. Either way, the last night you are staying in a hostel with the availbility of a shower so you do not need to pack much at all. My biggest...

The Weirdest Things I Pack

    0
The number one question I get asked is "How do you pack for a year?" The short answer is capsule wardrobe. BOLO for a post on this soon. Beyond clothing, I do make the effort to tote some unexpected, yet completely irreplaceable, items around the world. If you are looking for some gifts for your avid traveler, or about to embark yourself and wondering what...

The Peak You See is Never the Highest

    0
When I was 13 years old, my 8th grade class took a trip to Malaysia to trek for a week. It was a beautiful jungle but most of us had never camped before. The memories I have of this trip mostly include city kids in tears in the jungle confused about how they were supposed to survive without showering for 5 days. What in retrospect...

Retrospective Feb 11 – 24

    2
  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...

A DAY IN HIROSHIMA & MIYAJIMA

    1
Leveled by an atomic bomb in 1945, a visit to Hiroshima provides invaluable insight into the devastation the city and its people faced, while also providing a sobering reminder of the dangers of nuclear warfare, a reminder that seems more pertinent than ever in recent months. Just off the coast from the city, the island of Miyajima offers small town charm and is home to...

Food is a Journey

    1
Dining at Siete Fuegos last night was a beautiful experience for many reasons. Almost least of which was the food… A 90 minute drive from our home meant we had to be serious about it from the start. Our driver Fernando was the perfect person to share stories of the wineries, industry, people and landscape of Mendoza. He’s grown up here and has spent 20...

Breckenridge, Colorado

    1
This past autumn I knew that I would be living in Colorado for a few months while I recalibrated my direction for 2018. In order to reduce the risk of state-side suicide I plotted with my friend Sam to spend three weeks skiing and working from the small ski town of Breckenridge, Colorado. We really lucked out because Sam’s friend happened to be renting out...

Finally in the Land of Smiles!

    1
Thailand has pretty much been my heaven for the last 10 days (and has been at the top of my list for quite some time). As soon as we landed and walked out of the airport, I felt warmth and sun and with it, a version of myself I hadn’t seen in months. I have felt lighter and more carefree, and I smile and laugh...

Welp, The End Is Here: Reflections on 12 Months With Remote Year

    1
Five days post-farewell (which consisted of a rooftop party with more alcohol than I could have ever fathomed before I started hanging out with Australians, and so many tears that my contact lenses still won’t sit my eyes the right way) I’m sitting on the couch at my mom’s house with a 2015 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians blaring in the background trying...

Colombia – more than just coffee

    1
After falling in love with Peru, I was sad to leave for Colombia. After all, it’s not on the water and the only thing I knew about the country was they grow coffee and have a reputation for drugs. I reluctantly packed my bags and boarded the plane for the three-hour flight.   After spending two weeks here, I can honestly say I love Medellin!...
