Nearly 8 years ago, I met a man in a club. He was tall and pale and lanky and had a funny accent. He bought me a drink and then watched as I danced the night away with other dudes. I wasn't checking for him at all, he wasn't my "type". At the end of the night, he asked me out to dinner. I laughed inwardly as he stumbled over the words, due in equal parts to slight inebriation and the fact his first language wasn't English. Like, who *was* this dude? I wasn't interested but figured that at the least, I'd get a free meal and a new male acquaintance out of it. Fast forward a few days. The night of the date I nearly cancelled. I was tired and even more fatigued by the notion of having to make small talk with a stranger. But this was my year of yes. I had moved into a new city, new continent, new life. I had promised myself I would accept every invitation and engage in every new experience that came my way. Dates with random suitors included. So I went. (Besides, I was hungry.) I descended the escalator like Cinderella descending the grand staircase at the ball. Regal-like. My dress was cobalt blue so I looked every bit of the queen I felt myself to be. A scarf adorned my decolletage despite the heat, strange for November, even in Asia. I spied my companion waiting at the last step. Then I *really* looked at him, really saw him properly for the first time. Shit, he was cute! I was geeked. Dinner was magic. We ate but didn't taste the food. Instead, we drank each other in and something shifted in me. When I talked, he really listened. I loved that. When we got ready to leave the restaurant I stopped in the restroom, used it, then braced myself against the sink, awash in a feeling I couldn't name. Even then I knew this would be different. I was right.

When you and your girls try to take a picture alone but Kennedy won't let y'all be great! While going on at least one girls trips sans kids per year is a must I absolutely love that my friends are still down to travel with my girls in tow. They love, nurture and discipline them when needed, because, it takes a village! Have you traveled with your kids and your friends? Pros and cons? Or have you traveled with your friends and their kids? Tag a friends who needs this! #thetravelingchild

Sushi Saturdays at @robatagrill_movenpickcmb! When I travel, I'm all about tasting the local food, drinking the local wine, and exploring the local cuisine.

But I'd be lying if I said I didn't resort back to my comfort food at least once a week. That comfort food for me is east Asian cuisine -- more specifically, sushi!

What's your go-to comfort food when you travel? Please don't say McDonald's or I will block you as a service to the public πŸ™ƒ

Also, also, also! New blog post is up! First in almost two months, yikes! But link is in bio, and I would love for everyone to check it out |Β bit.ly/ExtrovertedIntrovert

The busiest and most exciting summer of my life is finally slowing down (not really), but the next 5 days, I'll be pumping out content from posts I've been sitting on for weeks.

This is one of several. I've touched on this a little, but I'm an extrovert turned introvert, for the love of travel.

And like many ambiverts who see themselves in both introverts and extroverts, we have a switch based on our environment and the mental capacity we want to give it.

To travel is to evolve. And this is one of my many evolutions I'm proudest of ❀

πŸ“·: @enchantedtravlr - Straight out of the history books. Another wonder of the world checked off of my list. The hike was more than I anticipated, but I can't imagine not doing it. Our heads were in the clouds.
Facts:
1). One of the Seven Wonders of the World.
2). Machu Picchu was a royal estate built for the Inca king Pachacutec around 1450.
3). It sits 7,970 feet (2,430 meters) above sea level on the eastern slope of the Andes and overlooks the Urubamba River hundreds of feet below.
4). The site covers 80,000 acres (32,500 hectares). Terraced fields on the edge of the site were once used for growing crops, likely maize and potatoes.

The only way for you to grow is to experience things you've never experienced aka stepping out of your comfort zone. What's holding you back from living your best life ?

Maria's aftermath. The dock in Fort de France (Martinique) where you could come and sit in front of sunset, and chill. We will have to wait a little bit to do that again.
