Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Don’t freak out ;)

I changed the name of my blog…

I originally named the url for this blog ‘Imperial Dreams’ after my first 2004 trip to Costa Rica when I was dreaming of returning and siping a yummy Imperial Beer in a hammock in Jaco, on the beach in Tamarindo, in the mountains of Monteverde, in the jungles in Montezuma, and even in my hostel in San Jose. The heading was Lame Thoughts, because I started out just posting my spin on the random funny(ish) things I experienced.

I did return in 2011 for a month in the Jungles of Montezuma and knew that I wanted to be back… more permanently. I was 100% certain. I even hesitated writing in my blog because I felt different. I was still Tammy who put a funny spin on daily life experiences, but now there was also this other side to me that wanted to share ‘out-there hippy, connected to nature and the world’ stuff. Just didn’t feel like ‘Lame thoughts’ covered it all.

When I returned home my goal was still there… but my resolve tapered away. Got caught up in the world and living. I don’t  know if I will live in Costa Rica, but I do still want to live a different life, more connected to my yoga practice and nature… but still me with my dance, marketing and tourism passions. I don’t know the path there yet. One shift in conscious at a time I guess? Evolving the name from ‘Lame thoughts’ to ‘Imperial Dreams’ is today’s shift…

Might have to go bigger soon : )

    I also keep experimenting with new design templates but keep coming back to this old 2004 design. I just like it. Doesn't have the added functionality of the new templates, but in this case I am on board with retro 🙂

Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead
Our cabin in #smithers was one of the many highlights on @route16_ca A view of #hudsonbaymountain and an adorable cabin in the woods... #explorebc #motorcycleroadtrip #motorcycle #roadtrip #route16 #travelnorthernbc #cabininthewoods
A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
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
