It’s my last weekend in Vancouver! The last two weeks have taken on a sort of fuzzy filter but they have also been really great. I am hoping for more of the same. The knot in my stomach has returned. I guess it’s time to finally do this thing! Things on the blog will be quiet for a while till I get all set up so please bear with me for the time being! Deep breaths. Love & light. xx
I’m fully in packing mode and feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. Posting might now be sporadic. Urg. Anyways, I am looking forward to a fun weekend: music in the park, party and a fancy night out (with lawyers?). Anyways, I’ll be juggling my to-do list so we’ll see how the posting goes. Have a great one. xx
Hi guys! So here’s some big news I’ve hidden from the blog. I’ve sold my apartment and I’m moving….to Berlin. Yup! I’m taking a huge leap of faith and following my dreams (I dream of schnitzel apparently?). Anyways, I’m still here blogging but there are obviously some BIG changes afoot. I’m not sure how much I’ll be around over the next little while. But I’d really love for you all to join me on this next adventure. Love & light xx
As much as I love looking at hotels, I sometimes get bored of them. And that’s okay because with sites like Airbnb there are a lot of other options. The Casa Cardenas in Merida, Mexico a great choice if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the Yucatan. Er, make that you and a large crowd.
This five bedroom home is the brainchild of two Aussie-turned-New Yorkers who also happen to be travel writers. They were looking for a vacation home that was close enough to use regularly. They bought a run down home in Merida and over the course of year transformed it into a quirky and cool vacation home.
Working with a Mayan construction crew, the couple redesigned the home by gutting one third of the existing home and adding an extra storey. 4,000 square feet include four bedrooms and a casita, meaning there is plenty of space to spread out. A rooftop terrace, screening room and backyard with a glassed-in pool and firepit are a few luxury features.
But as lovely as that all is, the tongue-in-cheek details like a bust of a former Mexican president, lines of piggy banks in the kitchen and large letters spelling name of a Mexican boy band that add the real interest. Minimalism with a sense of humour? Yes please.
Hi guys! It’s one of my most favorite times of year: Pride weekend here in Vancity. I am looking forward to rainbows, pancakes and glittery hugs this weekend. Plus it’s a long one so I will be back on Monday. Have a great one! xx
