Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Who’s that smell…

The popular game I know we’ve all played. On an elevator, a bus, or anywhere people gather in large clumps. ‘Who’s that smell’ isn’t a fun game… it’s a game played out of necessity.

Today for example, I take a seat on the bus only to notice a horrendous smell. It was a mix of… you know I’m not going to describe it, just know it was gross (roll the r). So I need to identify where the smell is coming from so i can turn my head in the opposite direction to avoid inhaling. Is it guy to the left or guy to the right? Well guy to the left is about 50ish with a long grey beard, scruffy clothes that looked like they had never been washed, a nose ring (not the cute side piercing, this was the kind you see on cattle), and those big rings that stretch out your ears. Don’t get me wrong… i like piercings, on the ‘right’ guy I think they are hot. But this guy could be the poster-guy for parents who warn their kids with the ‘ya sure you think it’s cool now, but how cool will you look when your 50?’. The whole look just wasn’t age appropriate (any I worry about wearing skirts that are too short for my age). Anyway, as usual I’m digressing. Back to the smell. Guy on the right was normalish, looked like he had showered, reading a book. So my bet was guy to the left. 1/2 way through the trip he gets up and leaves… but the smell stayed. so i was wrong. Turns out it was ‘normalish’ guy. You just never know.

Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
Woke up at 1am on my Bali Birthday to do the Batur Volcano hike. What a great day. Very steep incline that varied from road, to lava rock, to volcanic clay. We hiked up in the dark so we had no idea how steep some of the drops were until we hiked back down in the daylight! Mt. Batur is an active volcano about 1,770 metres above sea level. Our hike up took about 2 hours. Base camp is about midway up the mountain, so our gain was 900 metres, 13 km. View at the top is of Mt Agung, another active volcano. #mtbatur #volcano #hike #bali #mtagungbali #birthdayfun #thisis50
I’m back in Bali. After a little beach exploration in Kuta, we’re now settled in Ubud for a bit. Hit one of my favorites @clearcafeubud and now ready for morning yoga @theyogabarn followed by a sound healing session at @pyramidsofchi today. Best day ever. #bali #beachwalk #ubud #kuta #soundhealing Yes, those are recycled water bottles made into a Christmas tree.
