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
It’s been over 5 months since my retreat in Sayulita where we survived the worst hurricane to hit Mexico (it didn’t hit our area thankfully!). I was going through my phone and realized I wrote a piece about the vegan food I found there and didn’t even post it here on the blog! Now I realize that I didn’t write a blog about the retreat at all. Shame on me.
The retreat was amazing, besides the hurricane scare. We stayed at Hotelito Los Suenos whose staff took great care of us and provided delicious breakfast and dinner each day.… Read more
I know I owe you a blog about my yoga teacher training with Trimurti. But first I wanted to share this awesome pizza my friend Nanette and I made on the fly! You can watch the video here.
Since I was making this up as I went the ingredients are totally estimates. I think you’ll find if I’m close to correct it will be very delicious! You know nutritional yeast is magical stuff right? It makes everything taste better.
You’ll need a store-bought pizza crust or make your own about 10-12 inches in diameter.… Read more
Marking things off the bucket list!
I got back from India last Friday. I’m officially a certified yoga instructor!! There’s so much I want to share with you but honestly I’m jet lagged and feeling pretty meh. I recall last year when I got back from Australia/Indonesia it took me 2 weeks to adjust back to normal. But nobody’s got time for that as I leave tomorrow for Mexico to lead the 2nd annual blissed out yoga retreat. Crazy times! I promise to tell you all about the yoga teacher training in due time 🙂
The last 6 weeks was a whirlwind.… Read more
Now we talk about the second half of my time in Barcelona! I apologize it has taken so long to get this out but my yoga teacher training is super intense! More than imagined it would be (more on that soon!).
So, back in Spain, that evening Marissa, Chris, and I met up to go to Rasoterra in the Gothic Quarter. I couldn’t wait to eat late so I had a little something before (a tofu burger from Veggie Garden that was super delicious) so ended up getting something small at Rasoterra.… Read more
Ten days in Spain was not enough!
I guess I better write a blog (or three) about Spain before India completely envelopes my brain and memories. Let me start from the beginning. I decided around May that I would go to India to do my yoga teacher training. After doing days of research it was actually cheaper to fly there and do it than it was anywhere else in the world (and I really wanted to leave the US as an excuse to travel).… Read more
