Experience in Cuba

Recently I did a post talking about my arrival and first day in Cuba. Today I’m going to talk about the rest of my time spent on this lovely island. During my time in Havana I stayed a Hostel Casa Caribe Havana  a place I would highly recommend to any budget travelers. It’s about a…

Wandering through my mid-to-late 20’s

Last year I visited a dear friend in Germany that I met about 5 years ago when we both were volunteering on a farm in Spain. Even though we lost contact for a couple of years she opened her house up with open arms, and we picked up right where we left off.  During one…

Arriving in Havana, Cuba

  There was no way that I was going to miss out on an opportunity to go to Cuba while I was staying in Mexico City. Not only was it substantially cheaper and easier than going from the states, I had also been taking Cuban Salsa classes 4 days a week for 3 months. More…

Havana Day 1, Cuba

Cuba!! Ya’ll I was so excited to go to Cuba. Cuba has literally been on the top of my bucket list for years, and I could barely believe I was actually going. I was bummed I could only find 4 days to squeeze the trip in, but I was literally counting down the days till…

Cuba!! (Things to know)

This past week I had the amazing opportunity to spend 4 days in Havana, Cuba. Even though I just left, I already can’t wait to go back. This upcoming Sunday I have a post talking about my experience during my four days, however I also wanted to write a quick post on some important information…

Nevado de Toluca, Mexico

If you ever find yourself in Mexico City with more than a day or two I highly recommend taking the trip out to the Nevado de Toluca. About one and a half hours north of Mexico City, for me, it was a great day trip to do something different and explore the countryside of Mexico….

Tofo, Mozambique

December 23, 2016 I found myself hunched over my journal under the dim lighting of my hostel dorm room in Tofo, Mozambique. My pen scratched across the page describing the journey from Baton Rouge to my current location. First the flight to Washington, to meet up with N and spend the night with my cousin….

Dia de la independecia, Mexico City

  Viva Mexico! Viva Mexico! Viva Mexico! This past week I was lucky enough to spend the 15th in Mexico while the City celebrated  their independence day. Although the true Independence day is the 16th (not 5 de mayo you fools) most of Mexico City ramps up their celebration the 15th. There are festivals, parties,…

Johannesburg, South Africa

Ok this Throwback we’re going to go way back to 2016 and the trip I took with one of my childhood friends to visit our childhood best friend as he worked in Mozambique.  In December of 2016 N and I spent two weeks visiting M in Mozambique and South Africa. We spent one week in Maputo and on the shores of Tofu, a couple of days on an informal safari in the North of South Africa, and finished our trip celebrating new years on the streets of Jo-burg.

Fabrica de Vidrio, Mexico City

This past Thursday I had a really great opportunity to go to the local glass blowing workshop. This wasn’t your, wow look at all this really fine, delicate, expensive art, no. This was a workshop where a group of men worked incredibly hard and efficient to create a large volume of recycled glass products. The…

Bazar de Sabado, Mexico City

At the end of the month I’ll have officially spend 4 months here in this grand Mexico City. I love it here. I love that I have a Salsa/bachata/tango studio a five minute walk from my house. I love that I can walk 10 minutes and arrive at a market where I can buy huge…

Kefalos, Kos, Greece

For this weeks edition of “Throwback Thursday” I’m bringing it all the way back to last August when I met up with my BBWANEF * on the Isle of Kos in Greece. I’ve known M almost my whole life. From the moment his family got two new kittens and his mom let an 9 year-old…
