Trip to Goa


Mom and I organize trips to India every year centered around Ayurveda. This year we went to Mandrem Goa. Goa is unlike any other Indian State. It was colonized by the Portuguese and still has a strong Catholic presence as well as the taste for alcohol. This is probably why most people, including Indians, goContinue reading “Trip to Goa”

Ok, more about my home.


I cannot help it. It is just too beautiful. I found a few more pics I want to post here. This is where I hung out with a cup of coffee chilling and listening to roosters signing and sometimes the rain coming in.   My family owns some property in the mountains. This is theContinue reading “Ok, more about my home.”

Secluded beach in Guadeloupe


So this might be my last post from Guadeloupe for now since I am back in the frigid cold of Saint Louis Missouri. I absolutely love this beach. I don’t like to be where there are many people. This beach was perfect for me also because I could find many corals that I want toContinue reading “Secluded beach in Guadeloupe”

I flew back home. Now my arms are tired. 


It has been three years since I have been back home to Guadeloupe. It is a small French island in the Caribbean. Norwegian has the absolute cheapest flights.  I forgot how beautiful it is. My favorite part is to just sit on my friend’s porch, feel the breeze, listen to the sounds of roosters, dogsContinue reading “I flew back home. Now my arms are tired. “

Rickshaw ride with friends in India!


Every year my mom and I bring people to India. This is Varanasi. We’re on our way to see the Ayurvedic doctor. Varanasi is a holly city right on the Ganges (Ganga) river. Shiva is the main deity. There is one temple right on the river where they cremate bodies 24 hours a day. It’sContinue reading “Rickshaw ride with friends in India!”

Off to Varanasi…again


It is surreal to be out of saint Louis. The sounds and images bombarding my brain are confusing at times. I forget how quickly one gets used to his surroundings and think that this is the whole world. I love thinking and dreaming but nothing compares to actually physically moving your ass somewhere else. I’mContinue reading “Off to Varanasi…again”
