Why (and how) I started blogging

Two years ago I embarked on two different journeys that would take me to strange corners of the Earth, and my mind. One started with a backpack and a one-way ticket to Spain, but you've heard plenty about that. The other journey started with me opening my laptop one day in Portugal. Both were equally [...]

Life Update (and my BIG plan for Fall) 

Life Update (and my BIG plan for Fall) 

This week marks the two year anniversary of the day I left the states on a one-way ticket to freedom. It feels surreal to be celebrating this day two whole years later, when I swear it was just yesterday.  Time is elusive isn't it?! Einstein said that time and space are an illusion.

Heartbreak and Skipped Flights

2016, month three.  How are you holding up wherever you are in the world? Personally, I am feeling anxious this month.  Anxious and excited for all that is to come this year.  So many amazing experiences I never saw coming are happening because I decided to take a major leap of faith and travel the [...]

Watching the Ads Go By

Watching the Ads Go By

A week ago I picked up a fashion magazine for the first time in 6 months. I can't tell you how disconnected I felt from my former life while flipping through the pages of perfume ads and beautiful pictures of upcoming fashion collections. What's "hot" and "trending" thrown all over the pages and I'm not [...]
