Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Around the world. 22 days. One carry on bag.

One more sleep until we are off to Japan, India, England, Scotland and Qatar.

Decided that it would be a good idea to do it all with only one small carry on bag. Climates vary from extremely hot to rainy and cold so it was quite the challenge making it all fit. After lots of edits it fits.  But very full. Had to narrow down to this:

  • 2 Long pants
  • 1 legging
  • 1 tights
  • 2 pairs of shorts
  • 2 skirts
  • 4 tank tops
  • 3 tshirts
  • 2 button up shirts
  • 2 sport bras 2 reg
  • 1 yoga legging (spending time at a yoga retreat
  • 1 hoody
  • 3 pairs of shoes
  • Rain coat
  • Hat
  • Scarf
  • Gloves
  • Puffy coat (in compression bag)
  • Towel
  • 2 bikinis
  • 4 beach things (cover ups wraps etc)
  • The usual toiletries

All in my over stuffed pack. Well not all. I’m going to have to pull a Joey from friends when he wore all of chandler’s clothes. Most of the above list I’m wearing on the plane…

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
