A day at the North Shore in Hawaii

A day at the North Shore in Hawaii

I know. I’m a horrible wannabe travel blogger when this is the longest I’ve gone without an update. Apologies but Hawaii has kept me so busy! I had my cousin’s wedding, not to mention work, hiking at sunrise, shark cage diving, meeting other digital nomads,  and suntanning at the beach. So if you’re on Oahu, […]

Stay in Barcelona in style with AirBnB

Stay in Barcelona in style with AirBnB

When my friend, Michelle wanted to go with me to Spain (Barcelona & Madrid), I knew I wanted to stay in Barcelona in style with AirBnB. After doing a little search on AirBnB’s website, I found this beautiful apartment to stay at. It’s a spacious & modern two-bedroom/1 bathroom right in the middle of Sagrada Familia. Prior […]

Drinks at rooftop Red Sky bar in Bangkok

Drinks at rooftop Red Sky bar in Bangkok

You really can’t miss out on having drinks on the rooftop of Red Sky bar in Bangkok. Before even going to Red Sky, I suggest having a drink by the temples at the river. This is by the rooftop bar (and restaurant) called The Deck by the river. This is during sunset. Awesome eh? Once […]

Portugal: Visiting Grapes and Bites WineHouse in Lisbon

Wine at Grapes and Bites Wine House

When I was in Lisbon, I came upon Grapes and Bites WineHouse…it was so awesome that I ended up going twice. Tucked away at Rua do Norte 81-83 in trendy Bairro Alto, this small restaurant and wine house offers delicious food, an extensive range of amazing wines, attentive service and fabulous live music with a boisterous crowd.

Finding street art in Barcelona

Street art in Barcelona

While in Spain, I had to find some street art in Barcelona. While there weren’t many things I liked about this particular city, there was a little bit of street art/graffiti to catch while there. I know there was a lot more to find but I was able to watch a few miles and found a […]

Why hello there 2015!

2015 - what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

2015! For the first time, I am away from “home” on the East coast and celebrating the new year in sunny California with family. Looking back on 2014, it was much better (easier) than 2013. Wasting no time, in the second day of the new year, I am flying out and living in Thailand for a […]

2014 in retrospect

2014 in retrospect - malta

2014 is coming to a close and while the first half of my year was relatively quiet and unassuming. I focused on my blog & trying to balance the life I was living with the life I wanted to live. Then BAM! Suddenly, the months rolled in with massive change and upheaval. I felt like I […]

Wine Tasting at Grgich Hills Estate Winery

Wine Tasting at the Grgich Hills Estate Winery

While abroad the Wine Train in Napa Valley, my sister and I decided to disembark to enjoy a wine tasting & tour since a few were along the tracks and were able to stop for passengers. We chose the wine tasting at Grgich Hills Estate Winery for none other than the history background of this fine winery. As you […]

Riding the Napa Valley Wine Train

As soon as my bags landed in Northern California, I knew I had to give Napa Valley wine country a visit. Being a bit of a self-indulgent whino, it would be blasphemous not to. Even better than just taking a drive and enjoying the scenic views to the area, I was also partaking in a […]

Back from Lisbon and Barcelona

Just wanted to give my readers a quick update since it has felt a bit slower than slow around here. It was a long 12 days but I am finally back in the states. It feels damn good to be back “home” and while I’m busy visiting friends, it’s nice to get back to work […]

The Northern Lights aka the Aurora Borelias are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as ‘Aurora borealis’ in the […]

What are you grateful for?

Love and Gratitude - Thanksgiving

Love & Gratitude: is one of my former weekly columns where I express my gratitude for people and the world. I stopped the column mid-way through the year but occasionally, it’s not a bad thing to show appreciation for all the big & little things. Being that it’s Thanksgiving, this write up was a must. This […]

What are you running away from?

What am I running away from?

  I talk to people about travel sometimes a lot. My love for it. My sense of wanderlust. I’m curious about where people have been & eager to hear their travel experiences. I’m always planning my next destination and deciding where to go next. When people hear the term “digital nomad” – they usually think of […]
