For years I’ve said that my craziest ideas have been some of my best ideas. Studying for a semester in Peterborough, Canada when I was sixteen; moving to Brisbane, Australia before my eighteenth birthday to study journalism… and then transferring to creative writing after only two semesters; moving to Sri Lanka on a whim and… Continue reading A Crazy Idea
It’s been nearly a month since I wrote a new post about this new chapter of My Nomadic Life, even though when I left Colombia I told myself that this time I’d be more constant about updating my blog—not like in Brazil, where it fizzled out after a few months as the daily distractions of… Continue reading Life & Loss on the Road
Though I'd been dreaming of going back for years, I didn't expect to return to New York City in 2021. But ever since I left Colombia (again) in August, things haven't been exactly going to plan (in a good way) and I've been relearning how to embrace the unexpected. That's how I ended up on… Continue reading If I can Make it There…

Every year, as I stubbornly become… Continue reading Embracing the Unexpected
I visited Germany in the spring of 2018 and absolutely fell in love. I wasn't sure what to expect but the people, the food, and the cities blew me away in the short week I was there. I spent most of my time in Köln and was lucky enough to have local friends show me… Continue reading Germany 2018
Thankfully, you’re more likely to get sprayed by a 40-foot mechanical wood-and-steel elephant on a hot summer afternoon than to cross paths with an armoured knight these days in the Loire Valley, though both are fantastical notions.
Uncork your bottle of Patrimonio Rosé and voyage to Corsica, a romantic land of wonderfully exclusive wines and magical adventures.

I asked for adventure and the Universe delivered. It was only day two and nothing was going according to plan. But that's okay— unpredictability was expected, it was, in a way, part of the plan. I almost postponed my flight to Florida just a week ago, worried about COVID restrictions and rising infections, toxic algae… Continue reading According to Plan
