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

Experience Mantra 2016: Muay Thai Kickboxing

As you may recall last year in 2015 I decided to start setting mantras instead of resolutions or goals for the new year. 2015 was the year of No Fear. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, Experience came to me. It’s sort of a continuation of no fear, to experience brand new things that either I’ve always wanted to do or that I never thought about doing but would be interesting, fun, and enriching in some way.… Read more
