People go to Japan for a hundred different reasons. The top of my list? I wanted to take an epic bath.  But before we get there, let me first tell you that the path to a Japanese tea house is as important as the tea house itself. While walking the path, we are able to […]

One of the best cups of coffee I’ve ever had was at Café de l’Ambre in Tokyo. This delightful coffeeshop opened in 1948 and the decor hasn’t changed since. Located in the luxe futurescape of Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood, the dim lighting, mid-century red booths, and dark wood make you feel like you’re about to meet […]

When I was 25, my best friend and I bought one way tickets to Argentina with no real plan for the next year of our lives. We spent months bus-hopping across the continent: surfing in Peru, cuddling orphans in Bolivia, accidentally taking a drug run bus through the dead of night in Colombia. It was […]

“The greatest pleasure does not consist in experiencing new things, but in savoring the infinite variation of what we already know.” -Federico Castigliano, Flâneur: The Art of Wandering the Streets of Paris We’ve been in our house for ten days now. Each day we take a walk. Like many of us, we can’t go anywhere, […]

In 1790, the French writer Xavier de Maistre was sentenced to 42 days in house arrest for dueling. He spent that month and a half basking in the joys of traveling while homebound, and wrote “Voyage Around My Room” to celebrate what a grand journey he took without leaving the four walls of his home.

When Tim and I first met, we had a long conversation about one of our biggest goals for a future relationship: to make it a commonplace thing that we set a long table and force strangers to become best friends. Enter MFR popup dinnersssss! Our international retreats are big and extravagant and soulful, but the […]

When I first heard Tim & Laura’s idea for Moveable Feast Retreats, I wanted to go. So I booked the ticket, along with my mom and cousin, and set off on MFR’s maiden Provence voyage.  Every element of the experience was carefully planned out. The setting was perfect and Johnny’s food was exactly what you […]

Before our first trip to Chiang Mai years ago, I watched this video so many times I practically had it memorized. Now that the city feels like a 2nd home to us, I see how much this short from Monocle Magazine gets right. There’s an energy to Chiang Mai that’s as infectious as it is […]

Planning trips abroad… like the really good kind, the kind that change you on a fundamental level, the kind you return to a decade later in daydreams with a buoyant smile— that shit’s hard. And you know what the WORST thing is? You can spend so much time and energy (and $$$) only to come […]

Moveable Feast Retreats was founded on the desire to share incredible food in exquisite places, but the deep soul of MFR is to seek out the innate wisdom in this beautiful world’s many hidden corners. We went for a wander with the help of flâner in Provence. We leaned back in our chairs after dinner and took time […]
