Choreolab Basel + The Importance of Empowerment and Play

Walking into the first day of a dance intensive always brings me back to that first-day-of-school feeling. Observing the fellow students in your classroom, trying to pick up on the subtle overall vibe of the group in order to align your expectations accordingly.

Ras el Hanout Apple Hand Pies + On Finding Unassuming Inspiration in Auch, France

My recent hiatus from writing and blogging was slightly unexpected and yet unavoidable with everything going on lately.

The electricity of travel is still sparking in my veins and I can’t help continuing to lust over Pinterest photos, city names and calls for international dance workshops. I also keep revisiting all of my pictures from this last trip to London, wondering how soon I can go back again.

Rain-Soaked + Solo, A Romantic Weekend in Madrid

A city in the rain is as romantic as you make it. You can walk arm in arm with a loved one through the glistening cobblestones, finding cozy nooks in cafes and whispering into mugs of tea, or you can be chilled, damp and groan that you can’t properly take pictures without getting your camera wet and you wanted to see that lovely park, but what’s the point now.
