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
Hi guys! So I’m still in Vancouver for the time being (long story…) but I am still awaiting my big move. I’m couch surfing right now which has been interesting and actually has been very very awesome. So things are a bit in-between for me right now and you know what? That’s okay! It’s all working out. I will be leaving in about ten more days so blogging will be back for the time being. So there you go. Update. Have a great weekend & I will see you here next week. 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
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.
