What a crazy world I reemerged into last Friday after just a week off the grid in Patagonia!  After a couple hours of waffling, I cancelled my trip to Easter Island and flew all the way back home to Hawaii in a 48-hour marathon travel to get back before borders/flights got complicated and be nearer […]
Between battling Bali belly (where I really learned to “let go”) and insatiable mosquitos, I’ve had a refreshing and invigorating three weeks in Bali, TAing the coaching course I took in Sonoma 2.5 years ago. Giving back as a volunteer TA allowed me to appreciate how much I’ve grown since my course and reminded me […]
After an epic dive trip, Christina and I spent a needed day recharging in the all-inclusive Holiday Inn Resort in San Jose del Cabo, indulging in “bracelet life!” Like a cruise but on land–with mediocre all-day buffets, wet bars at the pool, and free activities including “Crazy Game” (never found out what it was), Foam […]
After an exhausting tour in Uganda and a 40-hour trip back to the States, I had foolishly planned only a day of rest in Houston before jetting off to Baja California Sur for a 9-day dive trip. Add daylight savings to jet lag, and I was in piss-poor condition for an intensely physical adventure. With […]
After a tour-filled though relatively restful time in Cape Town, it was back to third-world Africa in Uganda. No more brushing my teeth with tap water. Anti-malarial pills. And more bush living. Frankly, I was very tired of traveling, especially strenuous traveling. Cue in a 9-day G Adventures trip with “participatory camping.” Fuck! I wish […]
After a brief respite in Houston, I headed to Africa for a 12-day tour with Bio Bio Expeditions (the company I teach yoga for in Patagonia) to raft the mighty Zambezi and go on safaris. I then took an 18-hour shuttle ride both ways from South Africa to dive and relax for a week in […]
I spent the rest of my super gay summer in Berlin with quick stops in Brighton for Pride and Barcelona for Girlie Circuit, before returning to the States for my annual camping trip with Katie and of course, Burning Man. This is just a really quick Insta catch-up of the last couple months and also […]
Author’s note: I’m so far behind on blogging (too much enjoying!) so the next few blogs are quite backdated… After chilling in Switzerland, I headed to Croatia for a solo week trip. I used to hate solo trips but now really love the freedom of rugged individualism, although felt wisps of loneliness (see below). I […]
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
I decided to go to the Philippines, because I was planning to visit Ako in Tokyo and had a few weeks to burn in Asia.  Oddly enough I had never been to the Philippines and knew very little about things to do there, despite there being tons of Filipinos in Hawaii.  Based on the suggestions […]
