Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter


So I’ve had a few frayed moments the last few days. Too many to blog them all, but mostly related to a Calgary trip that I went on even though I couldn’t afford it. Why?…because I can’t say no. Actually that’s not true… I did say no, but somehow that was translated into a yes. So myself and 4 others piled into a 15 passenger van Friday night and drove to Calgary. Renting the van was an experience to say the least. A comedy of errors that ended with me trying to get to work stuck at broadway station during rush hour, every passing train packed full, and I’ve got a huge sleeping bag, pillow and back pack – it was hopeless. After a random guy started eyeballing my sleeping bag and insisting on knowing where I was ‘camping’ that night, I decided the day was crazy enough and needed to be reset. It was not a good day to walk into the office late with a pillow in hand. So I pressed control/alt/del hauled my stuff on the opposite train, took the day off and went home.

By the time the Calgary trip was over I had logged 2300 km in 4 days with about 12 hours sleep. So describing me as ‘frayed’ Tuesday would be an understatement and could explain how I almost got into a fight with a rude grungy guy at the skytrain. I don’t think he expected me to grab his arm and twist it back when he got in my face. I think I need a spa day. Or just sleep : (

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.
