Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Lame ads are annoying…

I’m riding the skytrain this morning and notice a translink ad in the back of the train. It shows this women talking on her cell phone in an empty train with the headline ‘don’t act as if you are the only person on the train’. Are you kidding me? with all the seriously annoying and rude things that people do on the skytrain, Translink is worried about people talking on their cell phones? Really? So it’s proper etiquette to stare quietly like zombies? Here’s my list of better messaging to get across:

When the train is full and you are ANYWHERE near the middle section and doors, get out at every stop to let people out.

When your waiting for the train, don’t crowd the platform trying to inch forward. and especially don’t cut in front of people as soon as the train comes… this makes people feel the need to fight for their space and there have been too many ‘accidental’ track mishaps.

DON’T wear strong Cologne/perfume… there are way too many people that suffer from asthma and migraines. Seriously… I’d rather smell BO than perfume.

You get the idea.. I could go on. Talking on the phone, that’s not even on my radar. Talking to your friend and laughing loudly when your mouth is a foot from my ear – that’s annoying.

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
