I’m all about space right now. Staying in the teepee in Santa Fe allowed me to realize how much creativity comes from places that are outside of your daily routine and this is usually because most of the time, our daily routine isn’t designed to make us feel energized, or good. It is usually crawling … Continue reading Create some space.
Nikki and Jeff organized a weekend trip away to Santa Fe, New Mexico. They did everything and more to make sure I had a great American experience, which meant a taste of the different cultures found within the massive US of A. Santa Fe is New Mexico’s capital, and sits in the Sangre de Cristo … Continue reading Santa Fe.
The same week I flew into Denver was spent enjoying one of the many perks of busy America; there’s always something going on. In this case it was the Slow Foods festival.

Walking into Chin’s gym on Koh Pha Ngan, I was … Continue reading Lessons of the Martial Arts
Now that I’ve made my way through India and Nepal, Thailand is a breeze. After the train I got a ride on the ferry to the island of Koh Phangan where I met up with Antonio, my first couch surfing experience and a friend to be missed. Antonio has embraced the life of “Fruitarianism”, a … Continue reading Fruits and fruits
First things first, when you come into the country and you haven’t planned on staying anywhere just yet, write a hostel name down. Write anything. Don’t leave it blank or you’ll end up like me, sitting on the floor before the counter looking for a hostel name on the computer while the Thai man squints … Continue reading What to do in Bangkok when you’re waiting for a train
The sweat is pouring off of me, it must be like 30 degrees already – at 5am might I add – and I’m running with a 12 kilogram pack on thinking, ‘Why? Why must I leave these things till the last minute?’ I’m in New Jalpaiguri, a town about an hour bus ride from the … Continue reading Yoga Trekking
