We’ve been married a long time and every time we prepare for travel, there’s tension in the house. Why? Because our packing styles are vastly different.
I’m a planner. I typically have all of my laundry clean and a few things laid out a couple of days before we leave. I have a list of things to pack along with a plan for the house and the pets. I make time to clean the house thoroughly, and schedule in a workout on departure day. I’m usually totally ready a few hours before we leave.
Derrick is a procrastinator. He is typically chilling out with his coffee and checking emails as I’m making my way through my checklist. He often finds time to make some pancakes for the girls (along with a huge mess in the kitchen). At the very last minute, he starts running around frantically looking for things, finishing laundry, and packing the entire contents of our house in one ginormous suitcase. As I watch him (with slight annoyance), tapping my fingers and getting anxious that we won’t make it to our destination on time. Of course, we always do.
So which are you? The planner or the procrastinator? #travelstories#summervacation#travelingyogi#ilovehimanyway#travelpartnerforlife#marriageisbeautiful
Street food of India ... the humble ‘bhutta’! Very versatile and consumed in many ways but this is certainly the best. Roasted on burning coal till it’s the right mix of burnt and cooked; smeared with lemon dipped in salt and chili powder and served to the expectant customer smacking his lips in anticipation and drooling his appreciation!! Bhaiya.... एक मेरे लिए!!
Two and a half years, during a random Acro jam in DC, I met Ben, flew him in high couch, posted it on Instagram, and never saw him again. Until yesterday that is.
Ben walked up to me in Kauai, HI and asked me if this was me (the picture up top) and Lindsey recognized him immediately from long ago. Obviously we had to recreate the photo and share another story on just how small the world really is. #dudeacro#randommeeting#smallworld#highcouch#acro#acroyoga#travelstories#ibasing

CURIOSITY: Built in 1902, the Fuller Building was originally named after the company that had commissioned it. Soon after, it started to be known with the name due to its unique shape, "Flat-Iron" or just "Iron". This peculiar form was not estetical but practical, as the building stands right at the intersection of two streets and the architect, Daniel Burnham, was determined to use all the available space.
The first elevators used a water pump and were very slow - they took nearly half an hour to get you on the top. The 21st floor was added three years after the completion of the building and for this the elevator reaches only the 20th floor.
The Flatiron was a revolutionary building. It was the first skyscraper with an internal steel structure, an inspiration for all the XXth century architecture. It shape caused the formation of very strong air currents that lifted the skirts of passers-by and it was not rare to see the men lurking on 23rd Street to look at the legs of the women;
the American slang "23 Skidoo", used by the police to warn the voyeurs, was born from these facts and today has become part of the common American language. But the women were not the only "victims" of the wind: even many men lost their hats and for this reason, at the subway stop on 23rd Street has a flying hat painted on it.
