Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

My trash TV guilty pleasure… watching grown men fight wearing adult onesies

I hate to admit it but I watch the MTV RW/RR Challenges. These shows are so bad you can’t look away. If you haven’t seen one imagine survivor, big brother, Fear Factor the UFC and Jerry Springer in one show. Why i like it, I don’t know… that’s probably a question for a therapist? Anyway, I settle in to watch the first episode of the latest season called ‘The Duel 2’ and before they even get to the first challenge there’s a ton of drinking in their mansion in New Zealand (maybe not so much like Survivor). Of course the token meat head starts a fight – this is the guy who never makes it past the first episode because he always gets kicked off for punching someone. But this time the dude really lost it – he wanted to KILL the other guy and it gets pretty intense with 10 other huge guys unable to hold him back and him punching a huge hole in the wall. The scene would be pretty grim and scary if it wasn’t for the fact that someone brought everyone adult size fleece onesies (yes, just like the baby ones with the feet). So here are these tough guys trying to kill each other and one of them is wearing this cuddly onesie. I got the feeling that if they’d stop punching and hug it out everything would be ok – nobody can resist the cuddliness of a onesie. It got pretty sad, at one point Adam (onesie guy) is covered in blood with the onesie at his ankles and CT (the meat head) is trying to smash his head into a brick wall. It all ends with both guys kicked off and being driven away in separate trucks. Adam with an ice pack to his face and CT holding the onesie (which I hope had ice in it?) to his face.

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
