Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Cupcakes… or raw batter?

So why is it that all the guys who flirt and approach me are between the ages of 19 and 24? I’m certainly not complaining, but they are just a tad and a half out of my range (and I have a fairly liberal range). It’s always been that way – I keep getting older and they stay the same age (thanks Dazed and Confused). I guess it boils down to the fact that most single men are in that range and are still driven somewhat by ‘hormones’ so are more likely to make a move or approach a woman. Maybe that’s why I like visiting Vegas… all the single men are between the ages of 30 and 35.

Speaking of, this last Vegas trip was a blast. Had some great food, shopped, danced, and had a lot of laughs. Some highlights:

Trying the Capoeira roll (and finally getting through a caparinha) at Sushi Samba and discovering it was the best fusion roll EVER.

Making random rules regarding who could enter the elevator (striped shirts only…)

Visiting the Pool at the Palms and chasing the sun in the cold. Being invited the next day (when it was even colder) to hang at the Mirage pool cabana and asking if we should bring skates?

Winning $50 in one of the many dance battles on our last night. Yes I pinched a nerve doing the matrix… but I won and that’s the point ; )

Is that gum on your shoe? Yes. Can I have some?

VIP ; )

Falling in love with Grey Goose and Sammy

Annie hurting her knee pole dancing and then throwing money in the streets of Vegas just to watch the ‘little people’ scramble.

Meeting a guy who buys credit card debt… and then offering him mine for free.

Vegas special (ie short dress with Winn slippers)

Dinner in the Cabana outside at Bartolotta with our little shawls and meeting the wine conosures Mario and Bruno.

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
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
