From “Is this it?” to Bliss – Interview with Lara

    0
One of my absolute favorite things about travel is the people I get to meet along the way. It’s been able to connect me with a new dear friend, Lara Sosanwo. We connected instantly over similar stories – we both found ourselves completely underwhelmed by the life we were “supposed to be living.” We also used the physical practice of yoga to move us into...

    0
Oh, Bali. I’m shocked to say that I feel a tiny piece of my heart is remaining here – even though I’ve only lived here for three months. As a nomad, there have been few places that feel like “home” and I’m always eager to hop to the next place. However, Bali is special and I’m finding it harder to leave than I imagined I...

A Guide to Food in Chiang Mai From Broke to Ballin’ ($$$)

    0
There is truly no greater pleasure than going to a country and eating the food it’s famous for, especially if you’ve only had the bastardized U.S. version of it.

He was the best in every facet of the game and was easy to look up to from a...
