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?

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
