🇮🇳 Happy Independence Day India 🇮🇳 72 years of evolution, spirit, and dancing. With colors like these on every street corner, I'll always celebrate you. #JaiHind

Bought a million plants this weekend so I can turn our apartment into Costa Rica, can I keep them alive tho??? 🌿🌱🌳⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ( SLMinCR travel guide in the blog archives)

When it's your third time in Paris and you still gramming your ice cream 🤷🏾‍♀️ I honestly feel so lucky to have visited my favorite city so many times. My travel guide is on the blog! It's a mix of the usual + unique, and yes, a picnic at the Eiffel Tower is included 🧺 #SLMinPAR  

Who doesn’t like a cute frośe place, especially in summers . @mizaduh took us to this super adorable rośe rooftop bar during our short trip to NewYork this week. They had an entire drink menu based on rośe - it was delicious. So if you are stopping by New York this summer, do check it out. Do you have any other rośe bars you love?

When I grow up, I want a bright kitchen corner with a little indoor citrus tree. 🍋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☕️ From my favorite cafe in Copenhagen. Every corner was so cute. I even asked if their avocado poster was for sale.

Missing Maui sunsets 🌅 ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ermmm, I maybe full for dinner but I always have room for dessert.🍦 That’s my simple philosophy in life. There is a corner in your stomach that no matter how full you get, can always fit in some dessert. . . This is exactly what happened. We had a late lunch around 3pm and had dinner reservation at 7.30 pm. And yet I squeezed in a whole plate of dessert in between at @papahaydn . . Loved this place so much. We were walking around this cute street in Portland when we stumbled upon this place. Their menu is insane. They have like 2 pages or more worth of desserts to choose from.🧁 . . I got the chocolate cube which is a block of dark chocolate filled with moussy-cake. Scrumptious! My husband had the S’mores Sundae which was pretty tasty as well. We paired the dessert up with some Riesling and it was perfect. If you goto Portland next time, do check this place out. #PortlandAdventure   #WanderNup  

POP QUIZ: How do you pronounce Nyhavn? Is it Nye-hay-vin? Ni-hah-vin? New-han? None of the above?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was pronouncing it Nye-hay-vin until we did a canal tour and heard our guide say New-Han (like the name Hans without the s). I never would have guessed! UPDATE: someone else just told me it’s pronounced New-Houn (like hound without the d). 🤷🏻‍♀️ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #traveldenmark   #traveltodenmark   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #whattodoindenmark   #postcardplaces   #theprettycities   #culturetrip   #travelandleisure   #beautifuldestinations   #passionpassport   #bitsofbuildings   #thatsdarling   #searchwandercollect   #inspiremyinstagram   #nyhavn   #travelcopenhagen   #whattodoincopenhagen   #copenhagenrestaurant   #copenhagenfood   #copenhagenlife   #kobenhavn  

These past few weeks, I’ve been learning so much about the world of content creation — such a wild and interesting world and as somebody who has been building websites (yay Geocities) since the early 2000s, this is an incredibly exciting side hustle and hopefully I’ll be able to turn it into a full-time gig one day ✊ #sfblogger   #sftravelblogger   #sfbloggers   #bayareablogger  

As much as I love light and airy interiors, black accents like this bookcase give me the tingles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is inside the gift shop of @glyptoteket, one of my favorite art museums we visited in the middle of Copenhagen. We popped in since we were passing by (and trying to get full value out of our Copenhagen cards) and it was pretty magical. 100% would recommend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #traveldenmark   #traveltodenmark   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #whattodoindenmark   #postcardplaces   #interiordecor   #elledecor   #designinspo   #thespacesilike   #theprettycities   #culturetrip   #travelandleisure   #beautifuldestinations   #passionpassport   #bitsofbuildings   #interiorgoals   #thatsdarling   #searchwandercollect   #inspiremyinstagram   #glyptoteket

What’s better than having wine? Having wine in a gorgeous vineyard. I had a chance to visit The Patz & Hall wine estate at Sonoma and was enamored with the stunning property. Plus their Pinots Noirs and Chardonnay had so much character. I especially enjoyed their 2016 Jenkins Ranch Pinot. This Dijon777 wine was so aromatic and fruity and totally went well with the grilled chicken that we were having. 🍷 . So if you are in Sonoma, I highly recommend visiting this place. I can’t wait to go back. @patzhall @emily_e_martin

The avocado toast to end all avocado toasts. I couldn’t get over the beautiful, refreshingly simple breakfasts we had just around the corner from our hotel at this wonderful cafe in Copenhagen. I want to get prints of everything we ate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.s. we stayed at @wakeupcopenhagen (the Borgergade location) and would 💯 percent recommend it. It’s not the fanciest but is comfortable and super close to Nyhavn; cute shops and restaurants; and a walkable/ short bus ride away from lots of other fun neighborhoods.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #copenhagencafe   #copenhagencoffee   #prettycoffeeshop   #sfcoffeebreaks   #coffeeshops   #coffeeshopvibes   #coffeeshopdesign   #coffeebreak   #coffeebreaks   #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #traveldenmark   #traveltodenmark   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #whattodoindenmark   #postcardplaces   #atelierseptember   #travelguides

Fridays are for dreaming up new possibilities... like a last-minute-ish weekend getaway with @sophiesticatedliving. Where should we go?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Photo snapped from the window of a Copenhagen department store called @illumsbolighus—go here for the best Danish trinkets and gifts!

I usually like most variety of wines as long as they are not too spicy or smoky. However, I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this Cabernet Franc which had a noticeable flavor of bell peppers! Yes, you heard it right - Cab Franc often has a bell-pepper like flavor with high acidity. Who would have thunk that I liked it. But I did. I got a chance to taste this particular wine on my trip to Oregon. This was a Yakima valley 2012 Vintino Cabernet Franc blend with some amazing bold notes of cherry and chocolate as well. 🍒 🍫 Absolutely loved it! Well lesson learnt! Next time - don’t say no to ANY wine. Try them all’ 🍷 Do you have a particular type that you enjoy when it come to wine? #WineTasting   OregonWine @calcagnocellarswinery

Aaaaaaaaaaand I'm 30 🎉💃🏽 It's been three decades of food, drank, adventures, and emotions. Wrote up my thoughts on it all in today's blog post 🤸🏾‍♂️

If you escaped / what I escaped / you'd be in Paris sippin' champagne too (especially cuz they sell bottles of it at the Eiffel Tower 🥂 ) #SLMinPAR  

🏃🏾‍♀️straight here after going to the newly opened @barrysbootcamp Paris cuz balance right?? Five years later, it's still my favorite 🥐 ever (my phone's home screen is the photo I took of these from 2014!). #SLMinPAR  

The colors of coffee in Copenhagen, the city with the prettiest neutrals everywhere. 🙌🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This coffee shop was highly recommended by multiple travel guides and was a lovely place to stop for an afternoon coffee break. It was misting out when we popped in and the coffee, soft light, and creamy interiors were perfect.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #traveldenmark   #traveltodenmark   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #whattodoindenmark   #postcardplaces   #designinspo   #thespacesilike   #theprettycities   #culturetrip   #travelandleisure   #beautifuldestinations   #passionpassport   #thatsdarling   #searchwandercollect   #inspiremyinstagram   #copenhagencafe   #copenhagencoffee   #prettycoffeeshop   #coffeeshops   #coffeeshopvibes   #coffeeshopdesign   #coffeebreak   #coffeebreaks  

#This   fourthofjuly we took the week off and went about exploring Portland and Seattle. It also happened to be our anniversary so it was the perfect time to celebrate by trying some new food and drink spots.🍹 . I can’t wait to share my finds with you on the blog soon but meanwhile I’ll be sharing stories and pictures from the trip. Highlights: ✔️Portland - Baked goods, artisanal coffee, lots of wine 🍩 ✔️Seattle - Great seafood! Period🍤 Of course, both the cities are surrounded by amazing natural beauty - waterfalls, mountains and hiking trails. Was definitely a great getaway. Have you been to these cities? What’s been your favorite? #WanderNup  

Denim jackets + sneakers + the best long weekend ever! Loved celebrating a bestie with my own bestie. Loved dancing until 3am 💃🏾 and drinking oversized pours of rosé 🍷. And loved being back in my favorite city in da world. Sorry as I spam everyone with Paris pictures all week and also not sorry at all. 🇫🇷 #SLMinPAR  

Its only fun when it’s with you. Happy anniversary baby. ❤️ I love you so much. . . This anniversary we were lucky enough to spend time with our parents (Kaushik’s mum and dad) who were visiting us from India. We shopped and ate our heart out in Portland and Seattle. After all, food and shopping is the best way to celebrate. 🍾 . . Loved every bit of both the cities and now we are totally recharged for the next few months. How did you guys spend your fourth of July? Did you see the fireworks ? #Anniversary   #Mine  

First things first 🇫🇷🍰 #SLMinPAR  

Dear Portland, Thank you for your scrumptious, lip-smacking donuts. . . 💙Nupur .......... . The Voodoo donuts are definitely a Portland favorite but I personally love the ones from @bluestardonuts - their Valrhona Chocolate Crunch and maple bacon donuts are to die for. They have some other lip smacking options as well including Lemon Poppy Buttermilk.🍩🍩🍩 . . What’s your favorite bakery or coffee place in Portland?

Sometimes you gotta be a fruity pebbles in a box full of vanilla and chocolate 🌈

"Didn't it just make you tingle?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Frances Morris, the director of Tate Modern, sees good art, she tingles. I don't know if I've ever tingled, but maybe I've just never noticed before. (Though once my friend @d.valkor saw a picture of a bunch of holes, and she said that made her teeth tingle. Which is probably a whole different kind of response/mild trypophobia. 😬)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whether it's tingle-giving or not, art is one of my favorite things to explore in a city. One afternoon in Copenhagen, when we were walking around the hip Jægersborggade neighborhood (which I definitely just copied and pasted the spelling of from Google —the æ though!), we stumbled across this gallery of illustrations and prints from local artists. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @crwfrd and I must have looked through every single one. We picked two and brought them home. I've never bought art abroad, but I like the idea of seeing something beautiful on your wall every day that reminds you of your trip. And makes you think about the tingles. 🖼️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (quote via theguardian) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #art   #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #traveldenmark   #traveltodenmark   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #whattodoindenmark   #postcardplaces   #thespacesilike   #theprettycities   #travelandleisure   #searchwandercollect   #inspiremyinstagram   #tatemodern   #artquotes  

If you are visiting NewYork in the summer, I highly recommend stopping by @spotdessertbar and trying the “Harvest”. This super adorable dessert looks like a potted plant from the outside but is actually a yummy cheesecake. 🌱 The green stalk sticking out of the pot is a mint stem. The soil itself is a soft cheesecake topped with oreo crumbs. The cheesecake has layers of berries and is served with earl grey milk tea with a side of raspberry sorbet. YUMMY I say.🍮 Their matcha lava cake is delicious as well. Read more about this place and my other insta-worthy places in NYC on my blog. Link in bio. I will have my NYC vlog up on YouTube shortly as well.🔝 What’s your favorite insta-worthy food spot in New York? I’m going there end July and would love to try it out.✔️ #NYCFoodie   #WanderNup  

Hello summer! ☀️ Travel plans are finally finalized for the next couple of months. We are going to be totally making use of this weather. . . Next week we are off to Portland and Seattle, two cities I have never been to but heard so much about. Would love some suggestions in terms of what to see and what to eat. What’s the next ✈️ travel destination for you? #HereWeGoAgain   #WanderNup  

When in LA, you need to have the mimosa flight at @bbcmcafe - one of my favorite places to brunch and chill. The mimosa flight contains strawberry, hibiscus and orange. 🍹 If you ain’t a mimosa fun, then go for their Bloody Mary with the sandwich or chilled coffee. Also don’t forget to try their eggs Benedict- it’s heavenly especially with the pork belly.🍳 I’m already drooling again 🤤 ! Swipe right to see the delicious pictures 👉🏻 #BloodyMary   #LAFood   #WanderNup

Missing India today. I spent the weekend with family to honor my late grandmother. After the ceremonies, I listened to stories about her and life during that time. I took pictures of pictures of my parents from when they were in their twenties. I discussed the India cricket World Cup match. I ate lots of home cooked food and took tupperwares back with me to SF. And I felt really happy to be who I am. 🇮🇳⠀ ⠀ This photo is from my trip last year, when we visited the Beatles ashram in Rishikesh; the Fab Four knew how special India was way before the rest of the world did. I hope I can continue to tell stories of my own to show how special it is, too.

6 surprising things about Copenhagen:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1) I knew there would be a lot of bikes, but wow there really are a lot of bikes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2) Nyhavn, the 17th-century waterfront canal district, is just as charming (if touristy) as it looks. 🤩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3) People are not NOT nice, but they’re not exactly the warmest either. (Interestingly, according to a University of Copenhagen staff survey from 2011, “three out of every four [international] staff say it is difficult to form friendships with Danes.” 🤷🏻‍♀️ )⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4) We went to two bars today and they both used long white taper candles 🕯 for table light. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5) Leg tattoos are really popular! (if a full arm of tattoos is called a sleeve, would a full leg of tattoos be called a pant leg?)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 6) Many shops, even the ones in the hip parts of town, close at 4 or 5 p.m. And I thought the mall in SF closed early at 8 p.m.!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nyhavn   #nyhavncanal   #copenhagenstyle   #copenhagentravel   #copenhagenguide   #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #traveldenmark   #traveltodenmark   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #whattodoindenmark   #postcardplaces   #thespacesilike   #theprettycities   #culturetrip   #travelandleisure   #beautifuldestinations   #passionpassport   #bitsofbuildings   #thatsdarling   #searchwandercollect   #inspiremyinstagram  

I told @crwfrd I was getting sick. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He took me to a brewery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don't have a full-blown cold yet, so it must have worked. 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The brewery is inside a shipping container nestled beneath the Tyne Bridge and is part of a creative container community, which immediately makes me think of a very organized, Marie-Kondo type of commune. I am intrigued. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thespacesilike   #theprettycities   #culturetrip   #travelandleisure   #passionpassport   #bitsofbuildings   #searchwandercollect   #inspiremyinstagram   #designrestaurants   #restaurantinterior   #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #postcardplaces   #travelblogger   #travelguides   #traveltipsandtricks  

Me observing the craziness of last night's NBA finals 👀 and honestly just happy that Drake is happy. Headed home to spend the weekend with family and hopefully get some 📖 and 🖊 done!

In the Northeast of England, Newcastle Upon Tyne is home to...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏛 Grey Street ("widely considered to be one of the most beautiful streets in England, with its graceful pale, elegant buildings," according to the @nytimes)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💁🏻‍♀️the Geordie accent (which you can pretend to have, too, by throwing in "mebbies" for maybe and "bairn" for child every now and again; thanks @wikihow!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌉 and this darling little gift shop at the base of one of their many bridges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ If I lived in a Nora Ephron rom com, I would most definitely work here. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #noraephron   #romcom   #thespacesilike   #theprettycities   #culturetrip   #travelandleisure   #beautifuldestinations   #passionpassport   #bitsofbuildings   #thatsdarling   #searchwandercollect   #inspiremyinstagram   #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #postcardplaces   #upsidedownpresents  

Last month, the husbter decided to take me to @birdsong_sf for my birthday dinner- a place I’ve been meaning to try for eons.🎂 . . And I loved it! Every course was crafted with so much love and respect to every ingredient used in the creation. For those who are curious, Birdsong is by the renowned chef @chrisbleidorn , former chef de cuisine at Atelier Crenn and veteran of Saison 👨🏻‍🍳 . . Their food is inspired by the cuisine of the Pacific Northwest, that means using techniques rooted in tradition, like cooking over live fire, fermentation, and dry-aging meat. My particular favorite was the creek raised trout, cornbread and the guinea hen yakitori. Their hospitality was amazing. Since my husband couldn’t eat yoghurt which was part of one of the desserts, they managed to whip up another chocolate delicacy which was totally lip- smacking.🍮 . . Loved every bit of it and highly recommend if you guys haven’t been there and are in SF. Swipe to see more pictures. 🔝

If you're staying along the River Tyne in Newcastle, you'd say you’re "staying quayside." (pronounced key-side) There are bars and restaurants along both sides and a zillion bridges that traverse it.

One really cute thing about the people in Snekkersten is how they go for after-dinner swims in the ocean like we go for after-dinner walks. 🏊🏽‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's not all that hot out (though it does stay light until after 11 p.m.) and the water is chilly, but we saw people jumping in even at 10 p.m. last night. They just bring a towel, go for a dip, then put their t-shirts back on, while walking home and wringing the water out of their hair. Looks exhilarating. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm getting up the nerve to jump in, haha. Luckily, this pretty dock is just a couple of minutes away from our hotel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you spot the lady in the water beyond the edge of the dock? 👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sftravelblogger   #cuteplaces   #snekkersten   #traveldenmark   #traveltodenmark   #snekkerstenlife   #travelblogs   #blogtravel   #travelbloggervibes   #whattodoindenmark   #snekkerstenstrand

Is this Main Street in Disneyland or just another charming corner in London? 😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We went to the West End to see harrypotterandthecursedchild and it was magical (and my first West End show!). I’d 100% recommend it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We decided on the plane to see if tickets were available and somehow got two seats in the stalls (the British version of orchestra seating). This was our view while waiting in the queue.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’ve been awake for 30+ hours 😱 and both managed to only nod off a couple of times during the 4+ hours of the play (intense!

If pretty food shops are your thing (you know who you are), London’s Fortnum & Mason is for you. They’re known for their tea and biscuits (though they sell all kinds of things), and it’s worth a visit just to admire their lavish displays. It’s like shopping in a luxury jewelry store for artisanal foods. Everything is in robin’s egg blue (or technically eau de nil). It’s the first time I wanted to buy cheese just because the packaging was so amazing.

We’re headed to Europe! ✈️ @crwfrd is speaking at two conferences about his scientific discoveries (casual), and I’m tagging along and working remote. Because when would I otherwise find myself visiting Newcastle upon Tyne (what a name) and Snekkersten (not to be confused with cinnamon cookies and chocolate covered peanuts, caramel and nougat 🤤)? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re spending a super short weekend in London before we get to work and ending the trip with a weekend in Copenhagen.

Spent the weekend eating everything at @august1five's new brunch menu. I mean, gol gappas and bright green tequila cocktails people!!! Anyone wanna go this weekend 😜

Yup this was my exact face when the piranha I caught almost jumped at me. Did you know the best way to catch Piranhas in the Amazon river is to bait them with beef meat? Crazy right. 😱 We had the amazing opportunity to fish for piranhas while we were in the Amazon. Of course, when I say fish, I mean catch them and release them safely. You CANNOT endanger any species in the Amazon. This was definitely one of the major highlights of our trip ( apart from spotting the Jaguar 10 feet from us ) The full video of this experience is now on my YouTube channel. Link in bio. What’s been your most amazing encounter with animals ? 🐆🐟 . #AmazonRainforest   #PeruVlog  

Ok took a bit of hiatus thanks to a nasty flu bug I had, that refused to leave me. Heard the flu season is in full swing in SF. 🙈 Still recovering but better enough to start sharing all that I have been upto in the last month. This was from my trip to Koh Yao Thailand - that I am still not over mentally. Already thinking where my next vacay will be 🤔🏖 . . What did you guys do over memorial Day weekend? Would love to know. #WanderNup  

How I manifest shit 101:⠀⁣⁣ ⠀⁣⁣ This is my self talk trifecta. I say any and all of these to myself on a daily basis: Anything can happen at any moment (opening myself up and thinking big), I know this is going to turn out better than I ever expected (shifting to positive), and imagining myself not just having the thing I want, but feeling the emotion that comes with it (and sometimes you don’t even need to know exactly what you want as long as you know how you want to feel, speaking directly to my fellow indecisive woes). ⁣ ⁣ Then, feel it — and keep coming back to it if you lose the feeling, or especially if you start going down a self depreciation wormhole. ⠀⁣⁣ ⠀⁣⁣ It’s really crazy how big of a difference this made in my life and how many more opportunities i have when I work my mentality this way — especially coming from someone who used to believe the logical thing was to “expect the worst so I could only be let up, not down”. There’s something real about focusing on whatever it is you’d like to happen instead of what you’re afraid of happening, also in focusing on feeling the way you want to feel instead of obsessing on defining your goals or figuring out that one thing you want to do, because some of my favorite things have been the random ones that fell in my lap. ⠀⁣⁣ ⠀⁣⁣ Anyway, there it is. It’s NOT easy and is definitely a muscle, but this always keeps me on the right track.
