(Click the picture for slide show).November 29, 2015When the clock struck midnight on the big day, I was dancing the night away at a wedding oblivious to anything but a beaming couple and the air of love in the room.  Time became endless, and I was gliding from one moment to another without stopping.

Trekking Volcano Fuego

    0
I don’t know why I think these treks will get easier. Climbing the third highest Volcano Acatenango to see Volcano Fuego was a huge challenge. It only took us five-ish hours to get up to top, but we were lugging all of our stuff and our own water! It was also extremely steep. I’m glad I had a few of my friends from the yoga...

Office Space of The Week

    0
Before I had arrived in Semuc Champey, I had double-checked that the hostel had wifi. The response was that there was “jungle wifi” so it comes and goes sometimes. Well, the wifi here consisted of walking five minutes up a steep hill to a hut with a stone bench outside. The first time I came here it was pitch black too. It took two hours...

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain Ever since I ran off to Girl Scout camp for two weeks when I was eight years old, I’ve loved...

In reality, there are hardworking, dedicated teams hustling behind the scenes from conception to launch and then: poof, the magic happens. The story behind Phoenix Startup Week doesn’t have a multi-year long backstory. It’s more like a three-to-four month story—we had...

Today the rest of us mystical yoga farm stragglers attended an all day fermentation workshop in San Marcos on Lake Atitlan Guatemala. We had been well addicted to Love Probiotics, a local company run by a couple that makes kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, vinegar and a few other fermented items. These products were pretty much all we could get our hands on all month, so we...

An American in Asia: Living Abroad During COVID-19

At any given moment, I hear a rooster cawing outside my window. I also hear constant motorbike honks. This is the soundtrack of Vietnam. 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...

Remote Year: Weekend at Elephant Nature Park, Thailand

I’m sure if you polled everyone in our Remote Year Curie travel group, you would get 100% agreement that Chiang Mai’s lure was in most part because of elephants in Thailand. A small group of us chose to do a side-trip to spend a weekend at Elephant Nature Park, an award-winning elephant sanctuary that prides itself on its ethical treatment of the majestic animals. Lek...

It’s true – It only cost me $200 of flights to get here and back to Belgrade (thanks Chase Rewards!) and an unavoidable $500 seaplane transfer. All the accommodations were free for 5 days thanks to my sugar momma Cari. Beach & Pool pictures per the request of my favorite diva...

The first moment I set foot out there, I had a feeling I have never experienced before...it was just complete sensory overload (and barely any drugs were...

Fitness in the Time of Quarantine

Pre-quarantine, I was a gym junkie. I didn’t know how to workout without a weight rack, stair master or group workout class. Then quarantine happened, and we all had to get creative. Earlier in the year, I started going to a physical therapist for a pinched L4/L5, which meant cutting down on a ton of…
