I could feel it as it was happening. I was slipping. Slipping through the cracks, slipping like the sand through my fingers. I was, with ill-intention, trying to convince myself that this was simply the reality of who I am. Throwing caution to wind, ignoring any consequence and living so much in the moment that … Continue reading Enough.
Let's be clear: I've taken one surf lesson (for basically one hour) in my entire life, so when I say things like "yah, I surf now," ignore me, haha. THAT SAID, the one and some hour(s) I was out there proved challenging yet incredible, and there was a lot that resonated with me while I … Continue reading Surf + Turf | Lessons Learned

I have an actual confession to make. There has been a massive, pervasive part of this journey so far that I have actively omitted from sharing.

It’s beautiful, it’s warm, it’s sunny and “amazing.” And though all of those things … Continue reading Confessions of a Solo Traveller | Part 3
