The town of Bunol in Spain is home to the world's biggest food fight, La Tomatina. Every August, hundreds of people pelt each other with squashed tomatoes. Some even wear goggles so they can see and breathe in the crowded streets of Bunol.

If you're wondering where I've been for the last month and half, I've been dealing with a few personal matters and slowly but surely working on the new site I promised you all. And it's finally here. It will be going live in August! Sadly this blog ends here, but there's a new chapter of Sit & Stay Awhile and it's finally happening next week with original content and many series that started here! This blog will remain active for you all if you ever need to look back or reference something. For all things new visit sitandstayawhile.co :)

Australia has many unusual natural attractions and I want to see all of them. Have you ever heard of a stone that looks like an ocean wave? In Western Australia, you can check out Wave Rock. Fact: it's about 2.7 million years old!

I'm not one who is super into astronomy, but visiting the Swiss Alps is definitely on my list of things to see. The Sphinx Observatory was built in 1931 and is located 11,716 feet high up in the Alps. Inside it's research station there are laboratories for meteorology, astronomy and medicine. Underneath the protective dome there is a massive telescope that researches can use to look out into the vastness of the universe. Visitors can take a high speed elevator to an observation deck and enjoy the spectacular view of the surrounding mountains.

podcast I can't stop listening too even though I cry every single episode. 

Tales of a bando addict, also for the traveler.
Summer Goals.  

My dear Kate, this is how I will always remember you.

Between high school and college, I was totally a nerd for environmental science. And ever since, I've become very eco-conscious. The simplicity of this newsletter is the perfect way to start your day.

Lifestyle Changes

One of the biggest challenges I intend to work on over the summer is trying to work out a little more. I've never really a been a gym person, I prefer being outside and in the pool. With the intention of moving my body a little more, I'm also tackling my diet and weight. Not that I have a horrible diet, but carbs have become a staple in my daily eating habits and it's time to change that. Now that I'm entering my thirties, I'm trying to make my health more of a priority. After a solid week of researching and reading up on Ketosis, I'm cutting off carbs and sugar for eight weeks and focusing more healthy fats, proteins and veggies. Have you tried the Keto Diet? Would you consider it? What are some of your healthy habits, tips and tricks? I would love to hear your thoughts on how you balance work, food and exercise!

Where are you off to this summer?! I'm dreaming of Iguazu Falls, on the border between Argentina and Brazil it's the widest waterfall in the world stretching over 1.7 miles across.
