South Africa

Cape Town is where South African men continued to melt my heart and I had the most perfect and epic day ever at Waterkloof. If that wasn’t enough, a Fish Hoek beach house grabbed hold of my heart and began

Barcelona

Arriving in the city with kind-hearted C and a compliment, I’m reminded of how beautiful Barcelona is, and at the same time humbled. Trebol won the churro contest, I learned the proper way to fix paella and slice jamon, there

Morocco

Racial profiling is never a great way to start a visit, followed by disorientation in the dark. Thankfully it led to a peaceful riad with its natural rhythm of birds, butterflies and bees in the bougainvillea, the faint scent of

Lisbon

San Francisco

A mixed trip. Pros: Spending time with JP, living with AW and the great advice during a stressful and important time, fixing my dislocated rib and zapping my knee, hanging with MP and LH in an ex-mortuary bar. Cons: I

Miami

It took me five minutes to remember the reasons I disliked living here — humidity, bugs, downpours. I cooked nothing while here (a first) and ate plenty of delicioso things, including Thai, mofungo, pizza, churrasco tacos and unagi. Still nothing
