  • WTF: What’s The Future?


    When I moved to Spain, I never actually thought about leaving. That’s not to say I thought I would be here forever, spending the rest of my days as a siesta taking, Spanish señorita, I just lived in the moment completely – soaking up each moment of the adventure of my dreams. Now that I […]

  • Home, I Am


    A thousand steps taken, a thousand more to go. A year abroad and still no clue where to blow. I left to find me to find home to find peace. But home is not something to find or a place to leave your things.  Now I see that home is not anywhere but within me. Home, I […]

  • 7 Lessons from the Road


    From the first time I went abroad I knew I was screwed. My life would never be the same and I would live in a perpetual state of, “WOW, what a ride! What’s next?” I was ignited by wanderlust and I never wanted the flame to die. 10 years later, I live abroad in Spain […]

  • It All Lies Within


      8 months and 5,724 miles is what it took me to realize that everything I needed to be absolutely blissfully happy and at peace had always been within me. (28 years and a million miles to be exact…but who’s counting) I possess all the ingredients I need to make a happy and fulfilling life, I […]

  • Lady Love


    On this journey of mine, globally and spiritually, I’ve discovered millions of things about millions of things, as expected. I knew I would fall in love with myself and the world and Spain and culture and places and faces, but one thing I did not expect to fall in love with was women.

  • Summer and the Gypsy


    The summer of my dreams is officially underway. When I moved to Spain, I knew I was going to want to explore for the summer and take a break from teaching. I wasn’t sure what that meant, but I knew I would find a way to make it happen. Traveling around like a normal backpacker […]

  • Life, What is it But a Dream?


    I haven’t written in about a month because I have just been so damn busy enjoying life! It seems like each weekend since spring sprung there has been something fantastic happening! The sun is shining and living truly is easy. Granada blossomed in so many ways when the frost of winter melted and the trees […]

    I have less. I need less. I want less. Living a simple life is liberating. You realize that all the things you once placed so much meaning on become meaningless and almost a burden. Life can be lived with so little, but it is shoved down our throats that we need more and more material […]

  • I Live in Spain!!!


    I have been living in Spain for 2 months, but it took me 9 years to get here. I laid a trail of bread crumbs in 2005, when I first set foot in Barcelona, knowing one day they would lead me back. I knew from the first day that this country was where I belonged. […]

  • GRANADA: Wine, Culture, History, Nature


    By the title of the post, you know I’m in heaven. A lot of people were surprised when I told them I wasn’t moving to Barcelona or Madrid. Being the most popular destinations in Spain and the most populated, I naturally avoided them. I’ve always been drawn to getting off the beaten path and this […]
