How Visiting a Nude Beach in Menorca Helps with Body Acceptance

“Bonjour, do you have the time?” said the old Frenchman walking towards us on Cala Macarelleta beach. We were wading waist-high in crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, enjoying a perfect day. While X the husband tried to explain in bad French our watches were set on London time, I realized something unusual about the smiling, tanned man approaching us. He was completely naked as the day he was born. As was his grinning wife...

An Introduction to Ayurveda: At Adler Thermae in Tuscany, Italy

To truly develop your entire being, body and mind, all have to be considered part of the journey. In other words, when I drink a ton of wine, it’s going to make my mood real crappy too. Exhibit A: All the Tuscan wine I could carry home from Sasso Di Sole. Anything in excess, whether it’s food, fun or just dwelling on negative thoughts means you’re going have a bad time. Awareness of this and of your connections inside and out are so...

A Little Bit On Latvia: Photos from Riga

Lativa was a treat. I don’t think I’ve visited a country in so little time that left such a lovely impression.

Saying Goodbye to Winter: Chamonix, France

Sprawled out on the side of the mountain, my skis were still halfway up the mountain. I had hit a nasty ice patch, went flying in the air and landed heard on my helmet. I didn’t move for a couple minutes, fearing the worst. The wind was taken out of my lungs and I certainly landed on something sharp by my ribs. What erupted was not tears, but crazy laughter as I rolled over in the snow and faced the sun. Sure it was a garbage fall and...

A Night Out in Clapham South: The Avalon

There’s nothing I can’t stand more than being stuck in the house on a rainy or overcast day as a London expat. It sets the mood for the week on how I feel and how productive I can be (read: not at all). When there’s any excuse to escape and do something out of the routine on a weekday, I’m all about it. A perk about living in a busy part of South London is the plethora of choices for places to eat. I can practically feel like I’m...
