RESTART

In the past six months, I have traveled through as many time zones. I started with a lovely trip to Lisbon to visit friends and meet Mooji, and from there, I went on to visit New Jersey, NYC, LA, Austin, and Houston before returning back to Africa. During that whirlwind of a trip, I was - Read More -

FROM THE BLUR

This morning, social media reminded me that on this day, three years ago, I was in China. I still remember looking out of the window from my hotel room in Kunshan to see this disgusting pollution. I definitely did not want to get up or go outside. I don’t know if I have ever admitted - Read More -

CHASING FREEDOM

Writing now from Koh Samui, Thailand and reflecting on the life of a traveler. When traveling, I always meet kindred spirits…people that feel more connected to life (somehow) while on the move. From the outside looking in, it probably seems to others that we are running from something…running from life. But as I think about - Read More -

CABO VERDE

Four months ago, I embarked on a journey I did not understand. I was called to visit an island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean for reasons I cannot comprehend. I felt connected to a place and to people I had not yet met. I took a risk. I remember after having a book - Read More -

CALM DURING THE STORM

LIFE IN THE SKY

A psychic (that I met in a mall) once told me that I would travel a lot. I nodded when she said it, but I had no idea I’d be living in the sky haha Though the travel gets hectic and tiring, I can say that it has given me a different perspective. I see the - Read More -

SINGAPORE

During my time in Singapore, my new friend Xavier (Chief Concierge at the Sofitel) encouraged me to experience life as a native Singaporean would. Since I’d visited all of the main sites of the city during previous trips, I thought it was an excellent idea. As a Singaporean would, I took the MRT subway (very - Read More -

STILLNESS

THREE REMINDERS

Barcelona is one of my favorite cities in the world. I was happy to return last week, and as before, I left with many wonderful memories. While reflecting on the trip on the (long) journey home, I was reminded of three things: 1. You cannot get moments back, no matter how special. 2. When you - Read More -
