Travel log: Colombia & it’s many struggles

In November, I started my journey to Colombia in Medellin. Medellin, as the 2nd largest city in Colombia, is breathtaking. This bustling metroplex is buried in a valley so you are surrounded 360 degrees by city views. I think the Paisas (local people to this area) do not understand the beauty that engulfs them every single day. But maybe they do for the torrid past of Medellin is buried deep in their hearts and minds. In general, people of Medellin are kind and helpful.… Read more

Reflections on 2016 & my new experiences

In 2015 I decided to start setting mantras instead of resolutions for the new year. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, New Experiences came to me. On my blog I tell you all about my new experiences for the year. Many of them are fitness/adventure related like the two featured today. We are closing in on the new year already (omg!!!) and I’ve done a very poor job keeping up with my blog and sharing my new experiences with you.… Read more

Experience Mantra 2016: Silver jewelry making in Bali

In 2015 I decided to start setting mantras instead of resolutions for the new year. Usually by February those resolutions are nowhere to be found. It suited me better to come up with “a statement or slogan repeated frequently” throughout the year that would lead my choices and experiences. 2015 was the year of No Fear where I purposely set out to tackle things that scared the sh*t out of me. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, New Experiences came to me.… Read more

What I spent for 1 month in Costa Rica

I read that Costa Rica was expensive, but I had no idea how much I would actually spend there for a month. After totalling everything up I’m kind of shocked. I didn’t really set a daily budget for myself so I could have spent less most likely. But as I’ve gotten older I don’t travel in the same kind of backpacker way that I did 10 years ago. I’m happy to spend a little bit extra for more comfort and better meals.… Read more

Why I decided to travel for 2 years?

If you follow me on any social media outlets you know I’ve been in Costa Rica studying Spanish for the last month. When I started my new retreat business earlier this year, I thought for sure this was my ticket to traveling full time as a career. It hasn’t gone exactly as I planned, but that hasn’t stopped me from deciding to travel the world for the next couple of years. My goal is to lead retreats while traveling too. Keep an eye out on where the next retreat will be later this year (Central or South America is on the list & next year I’ll have retreats in Europe!).… Read more
