Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

No more complaining about Vancouver men…

Ok, so I have to admit that I’ve had a few discussions with my girlfriends about Vancouver guy’s and their lack of dating effort. Convo’s about how the girls in this city are pretty hot and there are lots more of them than hot men so the average guy has it easy. But no more complaining for me… I just went to pick up my afternoon tea at Starbucks and as I get to the counter there was a guy in front of me, not my usual type but still a good looking guy. He turns and sees me… takes a step back and says “Wow… can I buy you a coffee?”. My reaction, “No, thanks I’m fine”. I’m so freaking independent that the idea of a stranger offering to pay bugs me so much that I didn’t even register the fact that a cute, put together guy was hitting on me. So no more complaining about the lack of effort because lord knows i’m not making it easy. Sorry dude.

    hahaha! Usually it doesn't register until way after, atleast for me. Are you still not complaining? I was told something interesting about dating,that the ratio of men vs women in Van is way less. Meaning: there aren't enough men. I wonder if this is true. -another single girl in the raincity

Loved the ride up to @barkervillebc I'm a sucker for historic towns. #goldrushtrail #explorebc so far we've made our way up #seatoskyhighway #duffylakeroad #route97 #cariboohighway next up @route16_ca #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x is rocking it.
Howe Sound view from the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Did my first ride of the Sea-to-Sky highway today. So much fun. Lots of corners but also lots of space since the hwy expansion in 2010. I remember driving this back in the 90's when it was single lanes. So much safer now. Did an amazing morning yoga class at the top. Highly recommend trying it! Classes start at 9:45 every weekday morning (taught by @northyoga_ ). Today's class was Yang to Yin... a perfect mix of flow and deep stretches for all levels #yoga #explorebc #seatoskyhighway #seatoskygondola #roadtrip #girlsthatride #moto #view #nature #yogainnature #yogaview #motorcycle
Found this lovely oasis on my ride back from #harrisonhotsprings #explorebc #mission #girlsthatride #waterfall #cascadefalls #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #mototrip #scenic7 #highway7
Uluwatu is gorgeous. Ancient temple that sits on a cliff. Protected by some cranky monkeys. My driver overcharged me on the way there. I sat down for a second in the parking lot to figure it out and this huge monkey comes out of nowhere, snatches my phone and hisses at me. His teeth were huge, keep my $1000 iphone. Someone came and helped by feeding the monkey so he'd drop my phone. I was told they are particularly nasty in the morning because they haven't eaten yet. Me too monkey. Me too. . But the view 🌊 . . #bali #baliindonesia #uluwatu #monkey #uluwatutemple #monkeyfight #view #indonesia
Hanging out in Nusa Dua for a few days. The Ritz is gorgeous. Beautiful grounds, right on a white sand beach overlooking the Indian Ocean. . . . #bali #baliindonesia #nusadua #beach #resort #theritz
Love exploring all the funky cafes in Bali. I was worried that with a nut 🥜 allergy in Indonesia my food options would be limited. Not at all. Flip through the slideshow for some of my favourite dishes so far. . . . #food #bali #indonesia #ubud #seminyak #canggu #peanutallergy #balifood the last pic is of my breakfast at #anggahomestay . . Thanks @josieinbc and @localwanderer for the tips!
