#TBT that time I was in Victoria, Canada 🇨🇦 and told her I needed a hat to meet the Queen because we was getting ready to have tea and crumpets😂😂😂🤣!! I love my business allows me to have so much fun anywhere I travel too. This was a business trip, but it felt like a vacation! •
Continuing my series on Ithaca Falls.
Ithaca, New York “If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
- Bruce Lee
I had heard that there were vintage cars dotting the streets of Havana yet I was still unprepared for the sheer volume. Practically every car looked like this one in all sorts of colors that you can only imagine. I’ve never been to a city quite like this. It’s been a few days since I’ve gotten back and I’m still reflecting on my trip. Part of me is already feeling the pull to return so i can explore more.

Absolutely amazing outfits and beautiful boats, something else completely unique that Venice owns 💓
Our co-founder Florencia just returned from southern Italy, and her 60 second guide is here. Full Chronicle with more details online now. Link in bio! 🇮🇹 I urge you to spend some time in Sicily. You should absolutely hire a car as it's the best way to get around. Cefalù – a charming coastal town in the island's north and one of the prettiest places I've ever been to – was my favorite spot. Spend your afternoons immersing in the slower pace of life, swimming, and enjoying long lunches. 🌊
Most restaurants offer freshly plucked from the ocean treasures, so every spot is as delightful as the next. My favorites were Al Porticciolo, Il Vecchio e Mare, Deja vu, and Piper Cefalù. Order the spaghetti frutti di mare, always.
If you have time, visit Scopello, San Vito lo Capo, and the tiny island of Favignana. Stop for lunch in Taormina and don't miss Il Barcaiolo, a fabulous trattoria in Spiaggia Mazzarò that will melt the hearts of even the most hardcore foodies.
Time to drive your car onto a ferry, have a quick espresso, and arrive in Calabria – the journey is a quick 20 minutes. Calabria is real, raw, untouched; it's not trying to show off. The absolute best meal I had in Italy was at Ristorante Glauco, a tiny restaurant in Scilla with a dreamy terrace overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea. The spaghetti mare was exquisite, the staff were warm, and the views were breathtaking. A must-visit if you find yourself in magical Scilla. Tropea is a must do, as well as Pizzo, Capo Vaticano and Reggio Calabria. 🗺
Up next is Puglia, the southern region and "heel" of the boot known for its whitewashed hill towns, rustic tranquility, and impressive Mediterranean coastline (hundreds of kilometers of it). If you're thinking of visiting Puglia, I have some advice: buy a one way ticket and don't come back. But if you must come back, do what I did and start planning your next visit immediately. Because you will want to return. 🏠
Stay at an Airbnb in Polignano a Mare (and ask your local host for tips), and do day trips to explore multiple towns and beaches each day. [continued in comments]

I see so many people wanting to try something new... but never actually pulling the trigger... like they're making a life and death decision when actually it's a small decision, maybe less than a $100. No big deal...
No matter the evidence we create in our head to support our decision... none of it is valid unless we actually try. Have you ever been wrong about something before? I certainly have😕
I would much prefer to try, fail fast, then move on, rather than be stuck in this '𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐈... 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝𝐧'𝐭 𝐈' vortex... this where I see so many people freeze... too scared to say yes... and too scared to say no.
You never know what your favourite ice cream flavour is until you try a few flavours... or in my case... try 𝐀𝐋𝐋 the flavours.
So if you're standing at the ice cream counter, taking too long to decide... I'm going to slap you in the face and say 'just fucking pick one' while I enjoy my 3 scoops of home made dark chocolate gelato😂... just sayin
