Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

HopScotch 2014

I had the intention of just flying by the seat of my pants and trying whatever caught my eye this year. But someone aptly pointed out that I’m more of a ‘Fly by the seat of a Plan’ kind of girl. So here is my list of the beverages I’d like to try at this years Hopscotch Festival:

  • Pumpkin Patch Ale
  • Creekside coffee stout
  • Talisker Storm
  • Glenfarclas
  • Pothole Filler Imperial Stout
  • Doctor’s Orders Gin
  • LIGHTHOUSE BREWING COMPANY Seaport Vanilla Stout
  • Long Table Cucumber Gin
  • PARALLEL 49 BREWING COMPANY
    Salty Scot Sea Salted Caramel Scotch Ale
  • Spicebox Pumpkin Spiced Whisky
  • And anything Kilchoman, Laphroig, Ardbeg and Lagavulin if they are there.

I’ll update post event.

UPDATE – Great event! I actually tried most of these. Favourites were the Longtable Gin, the 18 Glenfiddich and the Stanley Park Cherry Chocolate Porter. Oh and the BKH beef jerky and the Appleton rum chocolate.

I was getting setup for tonight’s #restorativeyoga class and noticed the shadows. I can’t resist geometric framing. Anyway, if you’re ready to relax, tune in every Monday @lofty_vibe at 7:30 pm. If you are feeling a little screen fatigue, rest assured 😉 you won’t be looking at your phone. All you need is the sound. #yoga #restorative #heartchakra #happydrum #soundhealing #singingbowlmeditation
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
