Snowstorm Sentiments

    0
No longer "home sweet home". Shock. Excitement. Disappointment. Excitement. Envy. Excitement. Sadness. Excitement. Admiration. These and more were the reactions I got from family, friends and co-workers as I began to let people in on my plans to quit my job as a corporate lawyer in Washington, D.C. to travel the world in 2016. In a matter of days, I will be leaving the comforts...

Outrageous FOMO

    0
My biggest fear is spiders. This is because when I was a wee tot, one time I woke up in the middle of the night and there was a spider on my face. There is nothing more horrifying than something unexpectedly crawling over your face in the dark, and then not knowing where it went, whether the monster is alive, and whether it went to...

La Paz, Bolivia

Leaving the larger cities behind, we've headed to the elevation of La Paz, Bolivia. They warned us that: "At 12,000 ft elevation, and colder weather, La Paz will definitely take a toll on those doing a lot of walking or drinking." But seriously... altitude sickness is a thing.

Popoyo, Nicaragua

Popoyo was one of those perfect travel experiences where just the right people show up and make the moment that much more memorable.In route to Magrock, a higher-end hostel/hotel on the beach, I pick up an Australian surfer on the side of the road walking to the same place. We arrive to each have our own hostel dorm rooms, and almost no other guests. The...

Ripping Up Deep Roots

    0
Once upon a time… I dated an fantastic woman who had a great New Year’s Eve tradition. Instead of making a resolution, everyone is tasked with making a New Year’s Slogan. It has to have some sort of significance to you hopefully framing what the next year will be about for you. My favorite one someone had years ago was “Open Mouth Kissing the World.” Given...

Picture this: 4 friends crammed into a 2 door vehicle  driving back from Barcelona to Valencia (3.5 hours).  Mediterranean on our left. Castles and quaint towns on our right.  My life flashing in front of my eyes.  (disclaimer: Spain does not have Uber so they have this service called Bla Bla car which allows you to choose drivers going from city to city.

After I got my dad’s phone call I excused myself from work and ran out of my office, trying to avoid waterworks in front of my coworkers. By the time I got...

YOU DO YOU, Berlin!

Berlin will embrace you, accept you, inspire you, confuse you and entice you.  It will make you see yourself and everyone else in a new way.
