I feel that sentence describes the last 8 years of my life: absent from home AND country…For me, it is both. I have been “absent” from Venezuela (my Country) since 8 years ago, … Continue reading What does it mean to be an Expat?
This past Thursday I met with my friend Simone, who is marrying in October (Wohoo, Congrats girl! 👰🏾🎩), and who is going back to US after three years living and working in Kuala Lumpur.

Yesterday I made it to Gili Trawangan Island in Indonesia-- gorgeous island! But that's not what this post is about. I made it terribly late yesterday: my flight was delated almost three hours, it was raining in Lombok so it took forever to get to the port, and it was all dark and it was … Continue reading Eat Pray Love ❤️
