Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Free Birthday Stuff

So last year I went all out for my Birthday. Went to Miami and had a great time but because the day falls during the most expensive travel time of the year (day before new year’s eve) the 5 day trip cost me an arm and a leg. So worth it though.

IT’s approaching again and while I’d love to get out of dodge/VanCity again this year, I really would rather spend my travel money later in the new year so I can go on a longer trip farther away. Plus my strata decided to hit me with some hefty increases, retro active coming out in Dec (Merry Christmas). So every day I resist the urge to just book a trip. I feel like a bit of an addict in need of Doctor Drew.

Perhaps I should do the opposite of last year’s indulgence birthday – find all the free stuff you can do on your birthday:

Free Starbucks to start the day
Denny’s for free breakfast
Free Sephora gift
I think you can get into a free movie at Tinsletown or rent from Rogers
Free deserts at Milestones, Brown’s, Boston Pizza, Red Robin, White Spot
Free Blenz to wash it all down
Free meal at the old spaghetti factory

This is me around this same time just before my very first birthday. I can tell I’m contemplating my birthday options here too as I smize for the camera in my energizer bunny fur?

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.
