Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Pura Vida

So the original inspiration for this blog name/URL…Beer. Yes, I started this blog shortly after a trip to Costa Rica where I fell in love with the local beer Imperial. Upon returning home to Canada I had to make do without – hence the Imperial Dreams. So no, the name of this blog doesn’t stem from my delusions of royal grandeur. The roots of this blog are watered with beer.

So I was a little excited when I saw that Imperial is going to be imported into North America… but disappointed once again to find out it’s not coming to Canada. Seriously, who did their market potential research? How could you miss Canada when looking at exporting beer?

    True dat! I’d help you smuggle a few cases across the border if you like….hopefully I’ll get some outlet mall shopping done in the bargain as well!

    Update – So blog name started as Imperial Dreams, inspired by my first trip to Costa Rica where I was introduced to Imperial beer and Pura Vida living. Recently changed it to Sandtoesha, inspired by my second trip to Costa Rica where I expereinced another big life shift exploring yoga for a month in the jungle.

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
