California tripping: LA to Palm Springs & Joshua Tree [1/3]

A foodie & artsy week-end in Madrid

Paris: these are a few of my favourite things

If I only had a few days in Paris, I’d try to hit any – or all! – of the following places. There’s a bit for everyone in this list: fashion, food, children’s clothes... Some are old time favorites, back to when I lived on Place des Vosges (yes! in a tiny mouse hole...

Bonding ideas with a 12 year old in NYC

Trips connect us to people and places. I find that taking a child on a one-on-one trip is a wonderful and most effective bonding experience. It provides intimacy and lasting memories for both parent and child. Marcelo and I went to NYC  when he was 5. It was...

a Roman history crash course in situ: Rome, Italy

Roma non Basta una Vita is a line you’ll hear over and over from the tour guides: one life is not enough to see all of Rome, and it’s true. There is something a bit head spinning about this city, almost overwhelming. No matter where you look, left right up down it’s...

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

Everyone's talking about Cuba these days, and I am thrown 20 years back to when I first visited this special island, and left it with mixed feelings about its future. I was 20 years old back then. During a summer internship in Caracas (that's a whole other blog...
