Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Day one of my Pura Vida Adventure…

I’m here in Costa Rica. Staying in a hostel by the airport and then catching a flight out to Tambor in the morning. It almost didnt happen! Barely caught my last connection to Costa Rica. An older women (not me) was mixed up and got on the wrong plane in Dallas. She didnt clue in until we were on the runway. We had to go back and let her off… An hour later we took off so I ended up with a fun sprint through Miami airport. Made it ok with enough time to pick up a Starbucks. While I was in line I caught a couple trying to discretely take a picture of my outfit. I’m going to assume because she liked my pants but perhaps she hated them? Random observation #1: of all the airports I spent time in today Miami had the hottest people. Random observation #2: still had on my marketing/branding hat today and noticed that the eagle on the American Airlines logo is inconsistent. In some places it faces left and others right. Embarrassed to admit it but it bugged me so much that I had to invent a reason as to why it varies – I’m thinking that the eagle needs to always face the direction the plane is flying which is why the eagle on the inside wing is flipped?

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.
