A Culinary Day in India


This short film by The Perennial Plate compiles three weeks of filming, traveling and eating in India into “one day”.

You can almost taste the food, smell the smells and feel the warmth of the sun as it sets. Full of energy, joy, and culture, this is what India is about.

Christmas Eve Spaghetti Dinner


I don’t know if you read last night’s post but I may have spoken too soon when I said we were not celebrating Christmas this year. After I posted my post, I went upstairs and found Diane in the laundry room. It was about 7pm on Christmas Eve so I figured they (Jason and Diane) had already had dinner, but Josh and I hadn’t and I didn’t feel like making something elaborate so I was going to make mac and cheese. But it turns out they hadn’t had dinner either, and Diane offered to make spaghetti and I would set the table. Continue reading “Christmas Eve Spaghetti Dinner”

In my life I have traveled extensively, but I haven’t been very lucky about having amazing views out the window of the airplane. It has always been that we are too high to see anything, or it is too dark to see anything, or I’m just not sitting on the window seat. Up until two weeks ago when I traveled from Portland to Mexico City via Dallas. Continue reading “PDX – DFW – MEX”

It’s Official: I’m Visiting My Hometown

A few hours ago I got my ticket to fly to my hometown this weekend. I was born and raised in Mexico City and had an awesome life there but I always knew I wanted to live abroad. I loved Mexico City, there was no reason why I shouldn’t want to stay, but I always had the travel bug, and that meant not staying in Mexico after graduating High School. When I was 19, I moved to London. I went straight from my lifelong home to a country about 6000 miles away, and that’s when the crazy adventures began and still continue.

2 Days In Seattle, WA (Part I)

As you may or may not know, depending on how much you follow my posts, Josh and I are temporarily in Portland renewing our Indian visas. (A process that is taking 10 times longer than it should). We have been in Portland for over a month now, so last Friday we decided to rent a car and head to Seattle on Saturday for a night. Josh lived in Seattle for 7 years, but his last time there was in 2005. As for myself, I had never been to Washington state before, so I was very excited because I love traveling to new places and especially because Josh always said that I would love Seattle.
