Travel Guide: Mexico City

Travel Guide: Mexico City

Last year, I went on a New Years trip to Mexico City and fell in love. I returned in the summer for a month with just a carry-on and wanted to share my experience. Mexico City is a crazy place. It is luxe and grit, love and violence, ease and complication. If I’m visiting a city, the two things I care about most are food and art. Mexico City has the most museums of any city in the world (150+) and an amazing, global, and affordable food scene. In the spirit of mimimalism, here are just a few of my...

Travel Guide: The Hidden Charm of Downtown Las Vegas

Travel Guide: The Hidden Charm of Downtown Las Vegas

Ahh Downtown Las Vegas, somehow exactly what I expected and nothing like I thought. Downtown Las Vegas as some of the same "what happens in Vegas" attitude, but it seems to have more grit and creativity. What struck me most about Downtown Las Vegas is the quantity and quality of their street art. Within a few blocks of their mainstreet, Fremont St., I saw so many amazing pieces and even a bizzaro, surrealist "Empty Club" installation complete with a rotating disco ball.          Where to Stay  I would recommend staying at either the El Cortez Hotel or...

Why Travel and Minimalism Go Together

Traveling is one of the best things you can do for your mental and emotional health. According to science, traveling is associated with better health, reduced anxiety, increased creativity, more happiness, and less depression. With stats like that, it's amazing that Americans travel far less than their European counterparts. While they say it's about the journey and not the destination, the journey can have some rough edges that make traveling feel like a chore. Exhibit A-- Packing: everyone hates it. It's an exercise in anxiety and worrying about all the 'what-if' scenarios-- Do I bring that extra pair of pants? How...

Stockholm: Taking Time to Unplug

   I just returned from 7 days in Stockholm, Sweden and am feeling refreshed. In the words of Barack Obama, I'm fired up, ready to go! This is my first real vacation in two years and I had a great time! Stockholm is an amazing city; it's super walkable, everything is well designed, and best of all EVERYONE WEARS GREYSCALE! I couldn't believe it, it was like Viscera- the City. During this trip, I gave myself permission to be fully off. I put on my email out of office, didn't check email (okay, I checked it once or twice), and...

Revisiting expansive, empty Moscow.

travel

Hello! Since I am a new face here at Viscera, I wanted to write about one thing that makes me really happy, which is travel. Right before I moved out to the Bay Area from New York, I went on a 5 week trip through parts of Europe with my boyfriend. It was incredible and I suspect it will influence my work for a long time. This journey started in Moscow, Russia, where I mostly spent time with my relatives but also got to see the city again, and this time with a non-Russian by my side. My boyfriend noticed many...
