Our 3rd month in Mexico has come and gone, and it’s beginning to feel like time is flying by down here. We kicked off this month with a quick visit from my favorite Italian yoga teacher, Elisa, who flew through Mexico City en route back to Canada to see Maluma in concert. We discovered an amazing new restaurant in our neighborhood and had a really fun night at the concert. [Read more…] about Month 3: Mexico
The last month has flown by and it feels surreal that we’ve already been in Mexico for 2 months!
Shortly after we passed the 1 month mark of being in Mexico, we moved into our new apartment, where we’ll be living for the next 6 months. It has been so nice to unpack fully and to know that we don’t have to move again until mid-May. After a crazy busy last year of travel, Ryan and I have both been craving been a bit more settled.

Today marks the one month mark of our time in Mexico City. So far, we’ve had an absolutely amazing time and everything has gone really smoothly for us so far. We arrived having no idea what to expect from Mexico City. We didn’t know if we would like the city or feel comfortable here, and so far we have felt really at home.

Over the last few years, as I’ve spent more and more time away from Canada, I’ve really come to appreciate my summers at home. The days are long, the weather is great, and there is so much fun outdoorsy stuff to do! This summer seemed to go by so, so quickly, and I’m sure that’s due to how busy we were.

I woke up a bit before 6am this morning to the familiar rumble in my stomach that told me I was going to be sick. I spent the next 30-45 minutes fighting the pain and the waves of nausea before I couldn’t fight it anymore. I proceeded to spend the next 4 hours getting sick.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I’ve realized that getting sick is the one time when I’m traveling that I really, really want to go home. [Read more…] about Day 19: Being Sick in a Foreign Country
Yesterday, I wrote about my 19 favorite things about Atlanta, so I think it’s pretty clear that I love the city; but, today I wanted to write a little bit more about falling in love with Atlanta.
In September 2015, Ryan joined Praxis, and his business partner was in Atlanta, GA. So, we picked up our lives and moved to the Southern US. Ryan had to start his job a month before our lease was up in Canada, so he headed down a month earlier than I did. As he found an apartment and got settled into life in Georgia, I packed up the rest of our life back home, finished up work at lululemon, and embarked on a 5 day road trip to get down to Georgia.
After 5 days of solo travel, I was super stoked to see the Georgia state sign and know that I was almost “home”. Arriving at the apartment that Ryan had found felt strange. We had almost no furniture, cutlery or groceries, and it hardly felt like I was “home”. [Read more…] about Day 18: Falling in love with Atlanta
