Hello how are you I’m fine!

Well… not lizexactly. One year ago, I said adios to NYC and got on a plane to Argentina to travel the world. And now I’m crying in the backseat of an Uber, leaving my home in Saigon and heading out for the next adventure. And by “home,” I mean a group of the most amazing … Continue reading Hello how are you I’m fine!

Drinking and dating around the world

Here's the rundown of what I drank and where I went on dates:  Argentina: Fernet and Coke (and a story to go with too much Fernet…) Bolivia: pepto bismol (because you don’t go on dates, you stay home with food poisoning) Peru: Pisco Sour England: Mint Julep Belgium: Stella Artois Czech Republic: Kozel Beer Serbia: … Continue reading Drinking and dating around the world

Digital Detox

*Spoiler Alert — I survived* Current location: an over-filled speed boat on my way back to mainland Cambodia from paradise aka the island of Koh Rong Samloem. I have my not-so-noise-canceling headphones on and have the Moana soundtrack on repeat, channeling the one part of the movie I didn’t sleep through when she’s on the open sea … Continue reading Digital Detox

My Christmas Wish

I belong on the naughty list. Even though there might not have been a boyfriend waiting under the Christmas palm tree this year, I was on the beach in Thailand drinking a piña colada out of a pineapple with my family. So yeah… I was on the nice list for sure. But… one piña colada … Continue reading My Christmas Wish

Expectations — and how to not have any

That may sound depressing, but after playing this game for the past 10 months, I know how it goes. And this is it: Dating in every different area code around the world can be fun, exciting, challenging, weird, and sometimes very tough. Especially when you find those few people who you have a connection with, only … Continue reading Expectations — and how to not have any

A Birthday and a Brit

While I’ve been holding my breath waiting for my Indo invite to come, I turned 27! As you would recall from “Birthdays of the Past 5 years,” I tend to have pretty memorable (/forgettable) birthday parties. There are few things I love more in life than having all of my friends in the same place … Continue reading A Birthday and a Brit

Election Day Date

It's been a minute since I wrote a post and trust me, a lot has happened from when I left Croatia until now. I've been living in Southeast Asia for a little over a month and damn dude this place is amazing. How have I never been here before? After close to 48 hours of … Continue reading Election Day Date

Ciao, Croatia

Despite my best efforts to swipe right for every guy on Tinder with a boat (/yacht) picture in his profile, I left the continent just as single as I had arrived four months earlier.  I was, however, leaving with a little less money in my bank account and a little bit more weight around my waistline. … Continue reading Ciao, Croatia

I woke up in a screensaver

Writing this from the way back seat of a minibus in Krabi, Thailand that is hopefully taking me to my new home for the next few days. I say hopefully because I literally just booked this two days ago and could have gotten a private driver to take me to the island of Koh Lanta … Continue reading I woke up in a screensaver

Snubbed at the club

I am angry, and think I have almost every right to be. I guess angry is an overstatement — annoyed is more valid. So yeah, I’m annoyed because a guy I knew snubbed me on Saturday night, and that shit doesn’t fly in my book. Remember when I went on a Tinder date to celebrate my 1-year-anniversary … Continue reading Snubbed at the club
