A Long Weekend in Sevilla, Spain | The Most Stunning Sights + Coziest Cafes

While our trip last month was not my first visit to Sevilla, Spain (or “Seville,” I suppose, as we say in the states), but it felt as if I was seeing everything with fresh, new eyes. My memories of the Sevilla I visited 6 years ago are nothing but a blur of Semana Santa festivities that commemorated the holy week of Easter.

A Handful of Favorite Cafes + Eats in Malaga, Spain

Once I released my hold on the reins and embraced vacation-mode, I could enjoy the long weekend in its entirety. I felt my body and mind melting into a more relaxed state with every second we were there. Coming from a week of intense dancing and recovery, it turned out that my poor muscles needed the heat and salt water to loosen them up again.

Vietnam Part 3 | The Best of Food and Coffee in the Mekong Delta + Ho Chi Minh City

This second leg of our trip was definitely a bit more wild than the first. We went from staying a few nights deep in the untamed green jungle of the Mekong River Delta to the untamed urban jungle of Ho Chi Minh City.

Vietnam Part 2 | The Best of Food and Coffee in Da Nang + Hoi An

There are two things that I believe will always help you to deeply learn about a new culture from the inside out- people and food.

I think we all have certain cities or places that know exactly how to feed us properly, and I would venture to say that for my tastes, Montreal is an absolute feast.

Sofia, Bulgaria | A Brief City Guide + On Finding Tenderness

What is an island? Where can I find tenderness? Our fatigued limbs were happy for a rest as we lounged on the floor, pencils in hand, flexing our mind muscles to answer these seemingly simple yet complex questions. A place away from the mainstream. Away from fast-paced routine where you can sit with yourself and be with others, completely in peace. Somewhere that may be small but we make space for each other.

Honey Butter Cardamom Buns + On Focused Living

I took a dance class while I was in Stockholm the other week and in the middle of executing a leg-heavy improvisation exercise, the guest artist stopped the music and told us something that I have been thinking about ever since. She prefaced with how she understands that sometimes when we are doing an improvisational task like this in dance, it can be difficult to stay balanced and maybe once in a while we fall, a foot slips or we make some sort of mistake.
