The choice is yours. A new journey awaits …

I owe you some updates, dear friends! I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth; instead I’ve been unexpectedly busy, planning some thrilling next few months. While I can’t reveal everything just yet, here’s a preview of what kept me hush, hush for the last few weeks, as you can read in my July newsletter. I’m pressing pause on my current life in New York City, to pursue some incredible travel & work opportunities. Often times, a decision … [Read more...]

#AirFranceExpo: France is in the air

Air France Expo interactive experience

This week was all about Air France, France and being French. I’m not big on aviation news, but when it comes to great service up in the air, with a touch of vintage, I’ll be there! And so I put on my finest French outfit to honor the invite I had received for the Air France Expo press day on June 25th, for its first day exhibiting at Center 248 in Chelsea. First class? Check! French wine? Check! Your very own French chef? Check. As expected … [Read more...]

A roaring Jazz Age Lawn Party! And on meeting Gatsby

Last year to do all the things I wanted to accomplish before I turn 30. It’s overwhelming to say the slightest, because I know all the expectations I had for my life up to this point, simply won’t happen. Others will instead, as they very well already did. At the same time, I’ve grown on my … [Read more...]

The colors of Cuba. And how to play dress up

Old house in Camagüey

Color and Cuba go hand in hand like two peas in a pod. There is so much color in Cuba, a rush of bright happy colors no less, that it’s not surprising how much happier one can feel while here. The exuberance in color is simply staggering. Everyone talks about the classic cars of Cuba. But my utmost delight to document, all throughout the island, were not the cars – stunning in both color and make, of course – but the doors, the unbelievably … [Read more...]
