Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Vegas!… for the last time : )

I did the math and this past Vegas trip is #7. That seriously goes against my ‘avoid repeat destination travel because there are too many cool places to see’ rule. But then I guess I’ve broken that rule before with Puerto vallarta (4x) and Brazil (2x) and soon again with my yoga trip to Costa Rica (2x). But does Vegas really count as travel? It’s so close and it’s just a fun place to go mingle when you get sick of the Vancouver nightlife.

So Vegas this time we stayed at the MGM, saw Sugar Ray Leonard hanging out. Checked out KA by CIRQUE DU SOLEIL and it was awesome! Minus the guy at the MGM box office who sold us tickets for the show after it started leading us to believe we’d only miss ten min but was actually more like 30! Also saw the Lion King which was also great, minus Michiyo giving me a hard time because I thought Mufasa was cute… whatever, you can have Simba but Mufasa was the mane man : )

Spent some time by the pool at Michiyo’s insistence. The sun was out but it was cold… I think I got whiter as the sun and cold wind just dried out my skin. That coupled with my cold hands had Michiyo convinced I was a ghost/corpse. I told her she was like the boy in Sixth Sense. If the boy decided to hang out and shop, see shows, party, tan and make fun of his ghosts.

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
