Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Day 5 of the Pura Vida adventure…

So the training schedule is pretty busy – 4 days on with one day off and our our days on are pretty full. 7:00 am yoga, 8:30 Breakfast, 10:00 class until dinner and then Satsang at 7ish. Not that I’m complaining… everything is gorgeous at Anamaya Retreat centre and the classes are awesome. So many new people and information, the idea of taking off with my buddy Amanda to snorkel and tan sounded great. We set off in the morning for Tortuga Island. Tried my hand at snorkeling. Saw some gorgeous fish and a baby tarantula on the way back in the boat. It was a great day… good convo, some beach time, music and fresh seafood for lunch but the BEST part – the whales. We saw some on the way to the island but they were not that interested in us when we stopped. The way back was another story. there were 3 sets of mothers with baby whales. The babies would jump up and do flips and I swear they were doing it for us. It seemed like they could feel our excitement when they did something big. Once and a while a mother would dive up like a dancer ending by showing us her huge tail. Very cool. Could have stayed there forever.

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!
