Becoming a Matchmaker

One day I’d like to think that picture above will be my hot boyfriend and me on a remote beach in Cambodia, or wherever around the world that we’re left to enjoy every second of our lives together with no distractions. But for now, I’ll be fine with helping others achieve that by working as … Continue reading Becoming a Matchmaker

It’s been a while…

since I last posted on here and told some stories about what it’s like to be single in a sea of engagement rings. Well… ICYMI, I’m still single, still working / living in NYC, and am on a cleanse. And not talking about green juice or no sugar like your typical cleanse, but a cleanse … Continue reading It’s been a while…

I’m back. 

380 days and 22 countries later, back home in NYC. Murray Hill to be exact. And no boyfriend in sight. Not exactly how I envisioned the end of my Remote Year to go, but I guess it would have been a bit difficult if I had fallen madly in love with a guy in a … Continue reading I’m back. 

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
