Yes, I solo travel with my two young children

•••
We had to put a stop to our travels when I got pregnant with my first child because I was instructed to “Stay In Bed”. It was a tough adjustment. You see, my husband and I took four trips a year to explore this expansive world bit by bit before we became parents. So the moment we could get back onto a plane, we did! With a vengeance this time. Instead of the[...]

The Desert Trip Festival - A cross-generational Happening

•••
The day has come. Today we’ll arrive at Desert Trip Festival in Indio, California. After several days' road-tripping across the United States, Stefan and I wake up in our hotel room in Twentynine Palms, about an hour's drive from Indio.

3 Romantic Dates to have in Nicaragua

•••
When people talk about the party town of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, they rarely describe the place as a seriously romantic destination. However, after spending a couple months in the small beach town located closely to the border of Costa Rica myself, I am happy to report back that yes indeed, there is romance somewhere in the air. Yet, you might want to s[...]

Things you should know when moving to India

•••
Welcome to India. Now close your eyes and forget everything you thought you “just knew” about this place. Re-open your eyes. Take everything in, the entire sensory experience. India is a place that has no true description. Talking about it as a nation is great when you consider everyone standing to sing the national anthem, at the movie theater, or celebrati[...]
