New Year, New You?

    0
2019 is upon us, a time to reflect on 2018 and set resolutions for the new year. I’ve seen it countless times in the past few days – new year, new you! But why should there be a new me? I don’t want this year to be about changing who I am, but rather embracing it. 2018 was tough, full of rough patches, self reflection,...

Happier Now

It's been 3 months since I have been back in the United States and I've been a little bit quiet, because truthfully I had no clue what had hit me. The transition back to life in America was much harder than I could have anticipated. My mind, and body were exhausted from the long-term travel. The world got a lot louder when I began to...

Getting into the Flow. Three lessons from 2018!

    0
Hello.Lately every new year was bigger, wilder, more intense, crazier, more packed with experiences than the previous. But they averaged at “it was OK” in balance of what good and nasty had happened. 2018 is different. 2018 is very much on the “fuck yeah!” side of things. Here are 3 things I learned this year.“If you have everything under control, you’re not moving fast enough.”- Mario AndrettiThis year...

How a waitress in Lisbon saved my curls

    0
It was on the fifth day in a row of tugging, teasing, stretching and pulling my kinky 4c curls back in a ponytail–that would then be hidden from the world in a funky wrap–that I finally threw down my wide tooth comb. I had enough. I was living in Lisbon, Portugal as part of the work and travel program Remote Year (we live and work together...

Gatwick drones, Heathrow groans

    0
All flights cancelled. Somewhere in the world, an industrial-sized drone is being operated by a human being—8 years old, 18 years experience in world politics—who knows who it is. And in the meantime, 119,000 people are put out of a flight during the holidays.Shit, am I a travel blogger or a CNN journalist? What was originally intended as a personal getaway with a friend who happened...

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!...

Jeepin’ Down Portugal’s Atlantic Coast

Nestled at the foothills of Portugal's Sintra Mountains, the town of Sintra is known for its pine-covered hills, lush beaches, and beautiful pastel palaces.
