My Marrakech Yoga StudioFound the cutest studio in the world: THEYOGiINMEIt was surprisingly difficult to find a yoga studio for the month in Marrakech- most were very expensive drop-in prices that clearly catered to tourists. I was so lucky to be recommended by a local to THEYOGiINME, an adorable studio just down the street from the workspace. The price for an unlimited month was super...

    0
I’ve been living out of a suitcase for nearly three months — here’s what I wear almost daily. The idea for this post came to me about two weeks ago as I was settling into Taghazout, a sleepy coastal village about three hours from Marrakech (and my favorite Moroccan town to-date). As you can see, I didn’t pack much — I’ve been learning to travel...

File under: Multi-tasking on an African Safari Over a long weekend last month (while living in Cape Town, a group of us flew to Johannesburg and trekked out to Kruger National Park for a four-day African safari. It was amazing (and I learned so much about wildlife and conversation efforts, which you can read in this post) — but I won’t lie, I was worried...

Put down the cell phone. You’ve heard the narrative before: Social media is a highlight reel. That’s part of my job… Or rather, that is my job. A job I’ve invested nearly a decade in. There’s a lot to love about social media. There’s also a lot of us that are really good at it — making life seem easy, breezy and nothin’ but as a...

This is Life Now

… And just like that, two weeks have come and gone. Hello and Happy New Year to you, my loves! Or rather, Howzit? This year — already — has been full of surprises, new experiences and nearly-missed flights. I’ve traveled 9,000 miles, sold (or donated) most of my belongings, showered with a bucket, climbed a mountain, danced into the late hours of the morning —...

Things I’m Afraid to Tell You: The Story Behind My “Solo” Travel Video

    0
Six weeks and five countries in 3.4 minutes — my “solo” travel story (video). I’ve been waiting a really long time to show you guys this. Like, nine months at least — which was when I started working on it when I was traveling through Europe. I would have shared it sooner, but, well; I tend to be one of those picky perfectionist-types — annoyingly...

3 Simple Shifts: Make These to Get Your Mind & Body Back on Track

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Atkins. Real talk: It’s nearly impossible to keep up with any type of regular routine these days — especially when it comes to healthy habits and nutrition. And especially in a society that glorifies the notion of being “busy” — an idea we often measure against success, consciously or not. I’ve been working with...

Ride A Hot Air Balloon Over The Teotihuacan Pyramids In Mexico City

    0
Upon my return from my four-month Remote Year journey, a common question asked was, “What was your favorite part?” Besides meeting my dad’s family in Lima, Peru, the coolest experience I had — hands down — was riding a sunrise hot air balloon over the Teotihuacan Pyramids outside Mexico City. It was beautiful, a little bit terrifying, and an unforgettable memory. Everything about it was...
