It all started with The National.


More specifically, it started a few weeks before a big trip, when I heard The Geese of Beverly Road, the part where he says, “oh, come, come be my waitress and serve me tonight, serve me the sky with a big slice of lemon.”


Optimistic words about infinite possibilities. I like that.


My name is Mayna Vancaillie. I’m half-Canadian, half-Belgian, 100% nomad – probably thanks to my hippie parents. I travel often and I write along the way – generally about cities, good design of all kinds, and the way things work.
