La-la-London

(photo: Unsplash.com) On a recent #miniremoteyear whirlwind trip to LA, SF and London, I was hoping to find a cute boyfriend in each city to entertain me for a limited amount of time. NYC has been particularly dry the past few months and I needed to get some kind of spice. Maybe the word boyfriend is too … Continue reading La-la-London

Back on the Cleanse

(photo: me in 24 hours, cred: Unsplash.com) Coming back from a year around the world does a lot to a person. I’ve seen amazing places, eaten everything (noticeably, but worth it), met incredible people, and went on a million dates (I really should do an official tally of them). Some good, some horrible, some meh, … Continue reading Back on the Cleanse

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
