You’d be so lucky if you came back with that je ne sais quoi after a semester in Nantes — my friend Janet came back with a sick bod — crazy with French food, right?! — and a French football playing boyfriend.
Tim’s work and passion for travel & surf brings him everywhere from Seattle to Sayulita to Sri Lanka. Currently in Sri Lanka, Tim sends us greetings with this travel diary. Enjoy!

In honour of the birthday of my mom. This week’s flashback Friday is to a trip we took to Kingston, Jamaica in 2011.
This month, the New York Times released what is always one of my favorite articles of the year, their list of Places to Go in 2015.
Today’s my mother’s birthday. Here’s a picture of us at Fort Clarence Beach in Jamaica while visiting family in 2011.
As I continue my love fest of Sayulita this week. I thought I’d share one of my first travel guides on my home away from home.
I came across some sad news while reading the New York Times yesterday: The Complete Traveller Antiquarian Bookstore on Madison ave. and 35th street is closing on Monday. This is a real loss to NYC-based nomads like myself. Immediately my two friends, Aaron and Naomi came to mine. I hope they had a chance to visit this incredible store before it closes. Owned by a travel-writing couple since 1984, the store was filled with travel guides both new and old, from Frommer’s to rare vintages from the 1800s. As a kid, one of my favorite books was a giant world atlas with every page being dedicated to a country, and when I got a globe in 4th grade? It was an absolutely game-changer.

Who doesn’t love brunching and shopping on a Saturday?! Enjoying Naty’s chicken mole tacos for breakfast. Sayulita. 2014 What’s on the menu? Watch my friend Isis in Sayulita as she teaches this gringa (that’s what you call a taco with cheese at Tacos del Ivan, btw) how to prepare huevitos a la mexicana in delicious handmade tortillas. Here’s what I’m coveting this Saturday, this awesome Alpaca Clutch bag from my friends at Anndra Neen. The line is made in Mexico City and designed by Mexico City natives & NYC-based stunning sister duo Phoebe & Annette Stevens. The first time I saw an Anndra Neen piece was when on friend, Kyleigh Kuhn and I was instantly obsessed. I’m an accessories addict and Anndra Neen takes the metal worked accessory game to a whole new level. I’m partial to the brand’s crossbody bags. It’s wearable art really.
