This Week


Life Flying and in Tokyo. Busy week, between conference and work but found some bits of time to hang with friends (and owls! And hedgies! And bunnies!) and also met up with my dad who happened to also be in Tokyo at the same time. Then headed to Seoul for vacation. Continuing to work through Spanish lessons ...

Another Break

Danbo reaches for Kindle

Last year I took a month off blogging. I live by the schedule, but sometimes it seems oppressive. I don’t want to break it arbitrarily, but if I’m so busy living by the schedule how do I understand what it does for me, and what should change? Last year I didn’t get the desired effects. I ...

I got a massage and a chocolate ...

Life Woke up Monday sick which is not a great start to the week, combined with surprise! building works which meant I had to be out of the apartment all day for 2-days. Timing was pretty terrible! But that is how it goes sometimes. At least it pushed me to explore a bit and I found some ...

Life Getting used to the altitude and trying to find a rhythm where I swim in the evening. Went to the spa which I really needed. Trying to be better about one day a week no computer, and getting back to reading a novel a week. Last weekend I went to the Botanical Gardens. I bought myself ...

This Week


Life Got trapped in JFK airport because of the snow. Finally made it back to Colombia though! And have the first weekend to myself with no planes in... I am not sure how long. Making myself at home and catching up on things, mainly. It's nice to be still. Went to the Museum of Contemporary Art in ...

AirBnB Travel Tip

Credit: Wikipedia

I stay in AirBnBs a lot (referral link), and my strategy is as follows: Filter on the things I care about (entire place, washing machine, location). Pick 2-3 that would be fine. Message them expressing an interest, asking a question, and saying something along the lines of "as it's a longer stay, are you open to giving me a ...
