We were told we couldn’t miss the Chinchero Market and went out of our way to swing by before Ollantaytambo. We had just flown into Cuzco, and at an elevation of 11,000+ feet I felt lightheaded and nauseous and sort of like we were on a new planet – the fruit-filled trees, the colorful textiles, the smell of the textiles, the faces, the braids, the coca tea, the guinea pigs, the stares. Sensory overload to the nth degree, and home to some of the most stunning textiles in the world.

On our West Coast road trip we camped or stayed with friends for the most part, but the Korakia Pensione was the splurge I had my heart set on. We spent 24 hours of total bliss there (most of which weren’t even sunny, which I’m pretty sure is rare in Palm Springs) rarely leaving the premises. We finished books by the pool, admired the bougainvillea, went to sleep early and swam in the empty pool before breakfast. It was Oscar night during our stay and while I was initially disappointed to miss them (no TV), we embraced the quiet with a bike ride around the neighborhood and a few rounds of Gin rummy by the fire.  It felt like a true vacation.

Hello from California! My boyfriend and I are traveling up the West Coast for two weeks, driving from LA all the way to Portland. Four days in, it feels so good to be away — to have only two pairs of pants and spotty internet and to sleep in a different place every night. It’s one of my favorite feelings in the world; directly tied with the feeling of home.

Above are some shots from our first (less than) 24 hours in LA. We ate dinner at Lucques (YUM), slept at a friend’s gorgeous home in Hancock Park, had breakfast at Cafe Stella, browsed Mohawk, and headed out of town. Hoping to go back soon and spend some more time — I love that bougainvillea-filled city.

(I’m also instagramming too much if you want to follow along :)
