I’m Feeling Thirty Two

Birthdays are important to me. Maybe it’s childish but I think they should always be celebrated, no matter how old you are.

Six Weeks

Six weeks. Six weeks ago I had just come back from Venice. I came home feeling like I had a grip of where my life was going in the run up to 32, motivated by my travels and filled with a sense of contentment I hadn’t felt in a while. Italy had just started to…

New York City Travel Guide
