Barcelona bound , I don’t know what I did while I was there but sleep till 1pm everyday from being in a dungeon room w no windows but gosh was my heart full from the people!
.
I got to taste mad wine on my first day and had a mini food tour with my new friend I had met at the airport in Iceland. Then went drunk shopping (which is a terrible idea guys. I still can’t believe I told them I didn’t want a box for my shoes at Chanel 🤦🏻‍♀️Champagne at the store after hefty pours at the wine spot..yea don’t do that
.
The idea of going to #Montserrat never even crossed my mind until @albe_rite_back suggested it. And good gaw is Mother Nature so flipping Amazeballs. As if Iceland wasn’t already enough! It also reminded me that I really hate bugs... I don’t know what I’m doing y’all but I’m just doing it. LoL. I never thought I’d see the day where I’d be going into the Columbia store buying shit until my first Iceland trip came around. Then I realized I barely owned any functional items. It’s when I realized Luxury goods don’t mean shit ... when you trying to survive
.
NY people are literally in every corner of the world and if you understand the law of attraction, then I don’t really need to explain much more. Mexico City brought me some amazing friends from Ny (@nomad_max @nathankroop ) and now Barcelona @toddweinberger .
I got to learn a shit ton about coffee thanks to #kaffeinekicktours . From the history to sourcing, understanding how to smell the aromas of both dry and wet coffee, learning how to properly taste it (slurp that bad boy) and learn how to make the perfect coffee with the right ratio and timing and a scale and bunch of other things... too many variables (🤪) it is a must do!
.
And I got to meet my new budz who I had met back in Iceland several days before 😊 @jeanbaptistejota and drink more limoncello haha.
.
My Airbnb host @franzmiv became my new frand and finding his home on my last day was the cherry on top. The home has always been my sanctuary for I am a homebody . This was a home I felt rejuvenated in and I cannot wait to make my way back
.
Till the next rendezvous shindig. You are all such a blessing and I am so lucky and grateful ❤️

First up: Iceland adventure numero dos ✌🏼
.
The people I have met along the way have really made the places i’ve visited on my own so special. The human connection is one of the greatest energies and the more I’ve met on this little journey of mine, the more open I have become. .
Open to the endless possibilities of living itself.
Open to others and their perception and perspective.
Open to living in ways that aren’t the norm for myself in particular. (The spoiled American I am)
.
And when we are open, things become much easier. The universe has been incredible to me allowing me to come across individuals who have helped make my journey not only seamless, but also took away any worries I had.
.
When we stop worrying, things comes to fruition and come alive and it is up to us on whether or not we want to embrace it.
.
I am a constant work in progress, and am in constant motion of opening and closing… but I will never stop the opening to seeing all the magic this universe has to offer,
.
and man… it’s quite magical. Don’t let no one tell you otherwise.

The first time I went to Iceland, I remember looking at the West Fjords on a map saying “Damn, that would be crazy as hell to go there.” I didn’t think I would ever make it but damn I actually made it. Without a bathroom in sight . 😅

This is Demetrius. He was our server tonight and gave us the most amazing energy. This is what came of it:
.
We need to hug more, to love more, to let even strangers know how much we appreciate them. To smile more at the people we don’t know. We are only strangers to each other because of our own barriers.
.
And at the end of the day, we all come from the same particles of light. “We are always looking for divine in ourselves but we must also see the divine in others”.
.
Tonight’s meditation session and talk about Kabbalah and Global Spirituality couldn’t have come at a better time

When you’re too busy on your grind and dont have time to post your birthday . Holiday birthdays are always the forgotten birthdays and planning around it always feels pointless but these people made it feel so special ❤️

I don’t know if America will be great again but I do know some of us as individuals have sure been striving hard to make sure we become the best person we can be for ourselves first and then for the world around us
.
.
.
To become our truest self, our highest self, and our pure self. Another year, another day, another second. I am grateful to see 29
