India is a frugal girl’s dream!

I have been thinking of writing this blog post since my first trip to the Ashram in October of 2015. I just couldn’t believe how inexpensive everything is here. For instance, a bottle of coconut water can cost up to $5 in the US. Here, coconut water straight from the source is 45 cents!!! YUM! Here is a breakdown of …

Costa Rica Memories

With just a few short days left in my 500 hour yoga teacher training, I find myself reflecting on the magic of the last two months. I have met so many incredible people and have gained so much wisdom.  I am so incredibly grateful for this journey. Onwards!

Preparing for the Next Adventure!

  It is that time again! The countdown has begun. I am only a month away from hopping on a flight to Costa Rica for an additional 500 hours of Yoga Teacher training. I am so excited I can barely contain myself. In January of 2015, I took a 200 hour yoga certification course in Costa Rica and it was …

Last Morning in Vietnam

I am writing this blog entry while cool morning air washes over me as I recline on a lounge seat on a boat cruising the Mekong delta, home to 17 million people who work as farmers and fishermen. It feels heavenly and a beautiful way to start my last day in Vietnam before returning statewide. Yesterday we boarded a boat …

My Father’s Footsteps

A Vespa Joyride Through Saigon

   We arrived in Saigon late afternoon on January 30th. Our first activity planned was Vespa tour through Saigon where we would sample the city’s food, visit a coffe shop with acoustic music and then end the night at a bar featuring live rock music. Being an adrenalin junkie, you would think I would have taken a ride on a …

Adventures in Hoi An

So Hoi An and I became best friends over the last couple days. I would have to say it is my favorite place I have been to in Vietnam. I’ll start with the weather. Through most of this trip my mother and I have been so cold we resorted to sleeping together and asking for extra space heaters. Though beautiful, …

Don’t ask me out. I make a horrible girlfriend!

   I make an awesome friend, but I make a horrible girlfriend. It’s true. Unless you are willing to travel around the world and live in an Ashram part time, I am probably not the girl for you. Sure I may seem fun, mysterious and even a little mystical, but when the fairy dust fades and the butterlies have flown …
