Wear Sunscreen

The last tan for Tam.I love the sun. In the last year and a half I’ve been tanning on the beaches of Goa in India, Samana in the Dominican, Cuba, and Mexico (images below). But flash forward to our first warm weekend of the year, and I spent it hiding from the sun while I was healing from cryosurgery to remove a little pre-cancerous spot on my nose. It’s all good, caught it early, but the risk is real. Heed Baz Luhrmann’s warning people and wear sunscreen. I also bought a new big floppy hat, just to be safe.

    Have you looked closely at the ingredients in your sun screens, tanning oils, make-up or whatnot?

    Personally, I’m much more weary of all those chemicals since our Sun has been here before the advent of time itself. We are inextricably linked to Father Sun just as we are to Mother Earth. Food for though.

      I agree! I’ve been trying to find something natural that works. Ideally I wouldn’t need it at all but Canadian winters leave me pretty pale and burnable by summer, even with a few winter escapes to the tropics.

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!
