“Fantastic! Caught loads of waves. My gf who has never surfed before was up and caching every wave she went for after only a couple mins. Alex was a patient and friendly teacher” From Jack Australia 🇦🇺 #mysurfschoolbali#couplesgoals#surfcouple
“There is no need to know the reason for why everything happens the way it does. We never question the good, so we mustn’t question the bad. Just trust that what’s meant to happen, did, for a reason, and keep moving on.”
Not everyone will get in here. Sorry, but that’s just a fact of this dance club for the 25 and over crowd and you’ll have to pay a 150 MXN cover if you’re a dude. But, both the waiting and the cover will be entirely worth it.
Once you get in, the place feels more “private event” than club – it’s exclusive and comfy. The acoustics are phenomenal, and they play pretty much what all the other clubs in the area play: house and techno guest DJs like, Sotomayor. However, unlike the other places in the area, they also play Cumbia, Salsa, Funk, Soul and Afrobeat. The trick is to grab a spot next to the DJ booth and dance your face off in front of the giant pink “Café Paraíso” neon.
The décor will have you looking for the beach with giant palms and tropical plants. This spot is truly an experiential journey. Ever seen a movie with a Miami nightclub scene from the 80s? It’s kind of like that.
The bar is unmistakably tropical, with bright colors and the aroma of freshly sliced fruits that’ll surely make you salivate. I like the Margarita, freshly squeezed lime and a robust tequila flavor, the sweetness of the sugar added does not disrupt the flavor. I also had a mojito and the thoroughly-muddled mint was present throughout the entire drink. It was exceptional.
Get here early. Actually, early. You will not be the only ones trying to get in at this Condesa neighborhood nightlife gem. 📸: @fernandocarmela@rousscc@astrosmendoza@karla_fiescov@libranap@godinez2707 📍 Address: Plaza de Villa de Madrid 17

Why I REALLY quit my job | Nearly 2 years in and I have so much to reflect on. The truth is that I didn’t really quit my job to travel. I planned on leaving my job regardless and it just so happened that I wanted to spend a year traveling as well. The timing was perfect. I was 23 with no kids, no husband, and no major commitments other than my own drive to learn more about myself & the world. I figured there was no better time to take a risk(and a break) than at that point in my life. .
When @eaglecreek asked me why I quit my job, I could have easily said “to travel” but the reality is that it’s much deeper than that. I’ve gotten the chance to see the world but I’ve learned many lessons along the way which have proven to be much more valuable. I wanted to discover my strengths and my weaknesses. I wanted to fall in love with strangers. I wanted to discover my purpose and place in this world. I wanted to say no to things, jobs, and people that were no longer serving me. I wanted to say yes to TRUE adventure - including the good AND the bad. I wanted to learn break bread with people from other cultures. I wanted to discover what else was out there, on my own terms. You all have stuck around for the (literal)highs and the lows...from parasailing over the city of eternal spring(Medellin, Colombia) to being robbed the next day. From wondering where my next paycheck would come from to being hired as a remote travel writer. From crying when I landed in Mexico on a one-way solo ticket to seeing so many of you book your own first solo trips. This barely scratches the surface, but I think you get the point.
I‘m constantly full of gratitude because this journey hasn’t been(and still isn’t) easy. The best part is that I never wanted it to be. A journey is comprised of highs & lows. You can’t have the good without the bad and everyone knows that any adventure would be boringgg if it were perfect. So why did I quit my job again? To travel, but to also create and pursue a life beyond my wildest dreams even if that means launching myself into the unknown.
When did you start following? Any questions about the journey?
ridin’ riiiiiight on thru hump day lyke.. 🚲😉 forreal though, when’s the last time you rode a REAL bike (aka not at spin class??) or better question, when’s the last time you rode a real bike that was so old, the brakes were not on the handle bars & you had to re-learn to pedal backwards to break?! because that was me & craig last weekend 😂 I told craig the phrase “it’s like riding a bike, you never forget!” couldn’t have been more wrong in that moment 🤪 but once we got the hang of it again, it was honestly so fun riding around under the spanish moss trees in st. simons island 💕🌿✨our 2 bikes came free with our airbnb too which was sweet! catch a clip of us riding around under our georgia highlights 🖤

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” “No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” MLK
Oh man, I want to take these words to heart 👏🏻 Happy Friday Y’all!
