Design Your Life

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow

Happy 6 Month Anniversary SE Asia!!

Exactly 6 months ago I hopped on a plane to Bali with no return ticket to the US (much to the airline’s chagrin…that’s another story). I remember, like yesterday, the feeling of dread and fear in the pit of my stomach before I left–or, rather, leapt. It’s a feeling I’ve had before and continue to

Malaysia: Beyond Words

“When for the first time something starts happening which is beyond words, life has happened to you, life has knocked at your door.

One day something finally snapped for me in Bali and I’d had enough.

Lombok: Living with the Locals

After 3 weeks in Indonesia, I find myself with about a week left on my Visa, wondering what to do. As a recovering perfectionist, I give up trying to figure out the “right” answer and just commit to staying here someway, somehow.

Gili Air: A Funny Fairytale Island

After three weeks in Bali, I move to the tiny island of Gili Air and find myself in Neverland, taking up with the Lost Boys, turning into a mermaid, and watching dragons fight.

Eating up Bali

Bali food has definitely been one of my favorite parts of this journey…where do I even start? Well, as I sit down to write this, I’ve just finished drinking the fresh juice out of a coconut and am getting ready to scoop out the tender meat for a little post-yoga snack. Okay, it’s not so

The Only Thing in the Way of What You Really Want: You

Before I went to Tulum, people kept telling me of its magic and amazing, healing energy. I knew I would love it. Why then, did I find myself at the airport, regretting my decision and wishing to stay in New York instead (when the city was, by the way, below freezing)? Why was I still
