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 A Crazy Idea

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 Life & Loss on the Road

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 If I can Make it There…

The Colombian Curse: A Love Letter to my Country

Being born in Colombia —a violent and lovely land of duality, of rancid poetry, marvellous heartbreak, impossible beauty, and sequestered abundance— is a curse.  On the one hand, it’s a magical, fertile, lush kingdom filled with wonders and beauty. From the Amazon Rainforest to the Caribbean Sea, from the Andes mountains to the Pacific Ocean,… Continue reading The Colombian Curse: A Love Letter to my Country

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 Embracing the Unexpected

Germany 2018

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

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 According to Plan

Leaving Colombia. Again.

In late 2015, I embarked on a nomadic journey through Brazil that forever changed my life. I wasn’t sure where exactly I would go or for how long— all I knew was I would start in the Amazon, head south to Uruguay, and stop at Iguazu Falls. After eighteen months on the road, I managed… Continue reading Leaving Colombia. Again.

France 2019

After my previous visits, an early winter spent in Paris, the Alps, and Provence offered a completely different experience in France.
