"Let no one hold you back, when it's your time to fly, soar." - The UrbanEater • • • It's very easy to get trapped into patterns of negativity.  Maybe you have goals, you haven't quite met.  Maybe you're procrastinating. Maybe you're not making as much money as you'd like.  There's enough self doubt in this world. Do not let anybody doubt you, or question your abilities.  If these children can run on the top of a South African mountain, 3500ft up, there is no limit to what you can accomplish.  Be like them, when YOU are ready, FLY.

Ate mostly vegetarian out in Egypt.  This breakfast cost about $3 USD.  And, this isn't even all it.  The food that my Airbnb host brought up for me, lasted a whole week.  Go to Egypt.
Typical New Yorker, trying to explain NY lingo to everyone.#lit
Sup #gramers.  This is my Giza vlog.  The biggest solo trip I've taken so far, and just wanted to give you a taste of what life is like here every night.  Watch each one.  It definitely gets very real out here.  Times are changing.  Traveling will give you a different perspective on the state of the world right now.  Especially, if you are an American. • • • #gorgeouscity #sunset #rooftop #patiolife #real #raw #history #timesarechanging #travelmore #learning #culturalimmersion #solotravel #worldtravel #blacktravel #livesomewhereelse #urbanguide #vlogger #blogger #lifeofanurbaneater
Call this #tbt, "I like London in the spring time." Went to London on a #layover.  Flew into Heathrow, took the tube into Paddington.  Walked out the station, made a right, walked about two blocks down, bumped into a cute pub.  I could sit outside, so I wanted a pint. As soon as I sat in a chair, saw a #fishnchips spot πŸ‘€. Who doesn't want fishnchips in London?  Bartender gave the ok to eat there.  Devoured it, then it started raining β˜”οΈ. So, I finished my pint inside.  Took a walk through #hydepark, bumped into #buckinghampalace.  Saw all of the tourists, freaked out, then got my ass back on the tube to the airport.  Off to Africa I was. πŸƒπŸΎ‍β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎ‍β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎ‍β™€οΈβœˆοΈ #spring #londoninthespring #sidewalk #pints #chipshops #friedfish #eeeats #londoneats #ukeats #worldwidetraveler #beerlover #foodies #foodiegram #foodpics #foodblog #foodvlog #urbanstyle #urbanculture #urbanliving #lifeofanurbaneater #lifeoftheurbaneater
Ok fellow foodies, I know y'all been waiting for it, like "don't this chick call herself the_urbaneater, where the hell are the food pics"!! Well here we go! πŸ˜‰ _________________________________________ Call this one "The last meal". This is literally the last NYC eat out session I had, before I hopped on a plane, to a month long trip in Africa.  Many people don't know this about me, but I've been working in food service since I was a teenager.  One of my jobs was at the recently/currently black boycotted #starbucks.  I was a barista at the Spring and Crosby location in soho, and a couple of blocks away lives #littleitaly.  Lunchtime, I'd walk over there after dealing with the extremely demanding wealthy clientele, grab myself a pizza and beer.  If you don't know this place, this is the place to go.  Beer is ice cold, pizza is hot and crispy.  In NYC, it's doesn't get better than this. • • • #tbt #thelastmeal #nyc #peroni #icecoldbeer #grandmaslice #tomato #basil #freshmozzarella #soho #littleitaly #nyceats #baristalife #bluecollarlife #bluecollareats #realnyc #foodblog #foodvlog #foodpics #foodstagram #foodieculture #urbanguide #urbanlifestyle #urbanfoodguide #lifeofanurbaneater #lifeoftheurbaneater
Our maintenance man for our villa, Fernando, decided to bless us with a whole yuca as a parting gift.  We cut it up, and fried it.  I'm killing it, while the mosquitoes are trying to kill me. 😩😩😩 #africancoast #beachliving #beachlife #needsomeoffspray #mosquitohell #issastruggle #lovethelocals #freshveggies #crispy #delicious #fried #yuca #foodporn #foodblog #real #foodvlog #lifeofanurbaneater #lifeoftheurbaneater
What was supposed to be a quiet week at the beach, turned into a haggling, swindling, slight hell.  Got to the city of Maputo, wifi doesn't work, paid a guy to take us to the supermarket.  Get to the gates of the beaches of Macaneta (where our villa was). Get asked to pay more money than the toll. πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’ Driving to our beautiful villa, car gets stuck in a muddy mosquito filled ditch.  Myself and another female friend leave the car with our male roommate, in the pitch black African streets, walk 5 miles to our beach home.  Get help from the hotel directly across the street. A bunch of courageous South Africans (hotel guest) drive us to get our friend in the ditch.  When we get there, he's out of the ditch apparently pushed out by a tractor, but he's surrounded by villagers requesting money for their help.  It was a mob. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„Well, thank god one of the South African men was a trained military man.  He jumped in our little Toyota Corolla, told us to hop in, sped off, and drove that little car like a champ. πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾 All in all, don't go to Maputo without a SUV.  Be ready to bargain, and haggle your way out of sketchy situations.  It's a beautiful country, but it ain't easy. • • • • #worldtravel #touringafrica #backpacking #roadslesstraveled #realtalk #blacktravel #maputo #macaneta #mozambique #itainteasy #understanding #thestruggle #thestruggleisreal #realafrica #urbanguide #urbanlifestyle #lifeofanurbaneater #lifeoftheurbaneater
Africa is proving to be majestic, magical, raw, real, and mystical.  If you haven't gone, go.  If you have, go back.  ____________________________________________ #liveyourdreams #africa #goback #capetown #saltriver #graffiti #gritty #wild #streetart #tablemountain #morning #sunrise #travelmore #travelblack #blacktravel #urbanstyle #urbanculture #lifeofanurbaneater #lifeoftheurbaneater
"Exiled". On a safari in the Northwest region of South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦, looking for elusive elephants 🐘for way too many hours, we bumped into this lone wilder beast. We stopped the car in the middle of the road, sat in silence for a bit, and just watched it walk slowly with his head slumped across this field. Curious, I asked our tour guide, "why was he alone"? "Isn't it dangerous"? Long story short, tour guide says he was probably exiled from his herd, because he was competition with the other males. I thought long and hard about the way humans treat each other.  I came to the conclusion we treat each other, just like wilder beast. • • • #exile #nature #natureversusnurture #animals #wilderbeast #humans #thoughts #success #competition #crabsinabarrel #lonewolf #lifteachotherup #southafrica #roots #travel #travelmore #blacktravel #safari #adventure #shotoniphone7 #lifeofanurbaneater
10hr layover in the U.K. .  Took the tube (Heathrow Express), into London.  Paddington really.  Decided to walk through Hyde park and see Buckingham Palace.  Central Park has NOTHING on Hyde park. Hit the palace, πŸ—£tourists for days.  Needed a pint bad.  Wandered around for a bit.  Bumped into this beautiful street, now I'm the tourist.  But, at least I'm the only one.  #layover #roadslesstraveled #aproperpint #localsonly #pubs #aquietpub #travelingtheworld #adventure #alleylife #lifeofanurbaneater

#tbt Since, I'm on this get fit kick.  Here is a pic from my second hike of the year, I did last weekend. Getting out of the city, is a necessary component, in surviving the city.  _____________________________________________________________  S/O to @verticallyinclined1 for dealing with my whining, and taking me on one the toughest adventures I've ever had in my whole life. πŸ—½πŸ›€β›° • • • #verticallyinclined #hiking #gettingfit #balance #challengingmyself #challengeyourself #onlythestrongsurvive #surviving #nyc #upstateny #blauveltstatepark #weekendwarrior #adventure #ny #nyceats #foodie #foodielifestyle #foodieblog #lifeoftheurbaneater
