Come fly away with me!

Five months from now we will be heading to Rio de Janeiro leading our first group of travelers for ten days. This idea has been living in my mind for a while, and finally Jeff and I put the plan to work and we will make it grow from now on. We believe traveling is…

Learning to fly

The act of learning how to fly tells more about our courage to try than our ability to fly.

When plans don’t go as planned.

What to do when the unexpected takes over giving us a small window of time to make decisions? Isn’t that just a chance to be creative? Isn’t it a chance to prove to ourselves that we can find ways to solve problems even if when we didn’t know we could? Even pushing us to communicate…

Waves of ideas

  Waves of ideas come and go trying to take me to different worlds where I can be totally alone and unreachable till the moment I’m completely satisfied and then I can choose to come back, or not. Where do we go when momentarily we leave our body? When the solid gold light feels like sticky…

Business man

  “Quanto custa?” I asked the little boy, and he answered me in a perfect English: ” It’s a donation, you pay as much as you want”. He had entered the restaurant where we were sitting and waiting for our fiends to arrive. It was one of those small places, half eating area and half…

Ilha Grande

      My cheese-bread rolled over the small table where we were sitting at the outdoor cafe, I looked at him and quickly grabbed it and put it in my mouth. For that split second he thought that I would give up on that piece of  bread rolling on a not well sanitized table, and he…

Lessons from the sea

Back in Mexico, four times in the last two years, every time a different place and a new experience. This is slowly turning into a love affair. Our boat was waiting for our group of 22 divers, this would be our place to live in the next seven days. The crew of ten people, and…

Let me walk through your home

Let me walk through your home and take my time absorbing every detail. Let me imagine the stories that happened here or the ones that will happen. The softness of the floor, the textures of the walls, everything invites me to touch your space and stay for a little longer. But it would be disturbing…

Final destination

Through life we learn about what matters and what doesn’t. We grow, we make mistakes, learn some more, change, evolve, and learn more about our personal journey than we expected we would. Sometimes we will walk alone during our journey, we will stand alone, and we will take care of others alone. We might think that…

Suspended in plain air

Second day started after a twelve hour sleep. There was the repeated prayer echoing throughout the town, as early as the first sun rays. There were people talking and walking in the  garden next to our bedroom window. Sweet French sounds of words that rushed from the maids’ mouths.  We met the world again, first…

Here, now.

  He asked me about a year ago “Simony, what travel destination do you have on your bucket list?” I answered without any hesitation : Morocco!!! He smiled and said that’s mine too! We were both born to be travellers as much as people are born to be doctors, artists, teachers, or anything else. To…

Soul traveling

I used to travel to see the world, now I travel to feel the world. I think there are three types of traveling: 1) Nature traveling, when we want to see this beautiful planet, beaches, animals, forests, mountains, etc. When we want to run with the river, dive in the ocean, sleep under the stars,…
