Barichara, Santander

Barichara is considered the most beautiful town in Colombia, and it's easy to see why. Here are my favourite photos from my first visit to Barichara in May 2022. PORTRAITS • BARICHARA • GUANE Portraits Barichara Guane Guane is an even smaller town that can be reached by walking 5.5 km from Barichara along the… Continue reading Barichara, Santander

New York City 2021

Ever since I first visited New York City in the spring of 2015, I've been dreaming of going back. And in the summer of 2021, life conspired to take me back for three weeks. Despite losing a couple of days due to Hurricane Henri and my second COVID-19 shot, I made the most of my… Continue reading New York City 2021

Cartagena de Indias

En febrero de 2022 visité a Cartagena y las Islas del Rosario por primera vez desde el 2015. Recorrí sus calles antiguas, admirando sus fachadas coloridas y sus ventanas cargadas de flores; me quedé en el barrio de Getsemaní y conocí el Mercado de Bazurto donde saboreé un delicioso almuerzo tradicional. Pasé unos días en… Continue reading Cartagena de Indias

Thirty-Five

I always thought I’d be dead by thirty-five. I don’t know where this fixation came from, what triggered it, or why I believed it, but the imagined certainty that I wouldn’t live to see forty defined my 20s and early 30s in a very real way. My friends in university would tell me to stop… Continue reading Thirty-Five

My Nomadic Life: Force Majeure

There are things beyond our control. Things that force us to change our plans, to be flexible and spontaneous, things that humble us, that remind us that the world keeps spinning regardless of what we’re going through, things that make the impossible possible and the possible impossible. These unpredictable factors are known as force majeure—a… Continue reading My Nomadic Life: Force Majeure

My Nomadic Life: A Crazy Idea

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 My Nomadic Life: A Crazy Idea

My Nomadic Life: Life & Loss on the Road

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 My Nomadic Life: Life & Loss on the Road

My Nomadic Life: If I can Make it There…

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 My Nomadic Life: If I can Make it There…

My Nomadic Life: Embracing the Unexpected

It’s in my blood, this travel bug. I was born with it, into it, and it has only grown stronger with every passport stamp, every border crossing, every coastline I’ve walked on that signals the end of a continental mass that still hasn’t been swallowed up by the Ocean. Every year, as I stubbornly become… Continue reading My Nomadic Life: Embracing the Unexpected

My Nomadic Life: According to Plan

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 My Nomadic Life: According to Plan
