Traditional Yoga – What I Learned In India

Being in India has opened up my eyes, my mind, and my soul to a whole new world and meaning of yoga.  I have an amazing new sense of self and have developed a stronger connection with the here and now.  Yoga has become something more to me then a work out at the gym.  It has become a way of life.

Interview with Andi Perullo of My Beautiful Adventures

She’s a world traveler.  Chinese medicine practitioner.  Writer.  Photographer.  Most likely soon to be conqueror of the known world — well, at least the internet world.  And a lucky Argentinean man is to take her hand in marriage in a few months and dash the hopes of untold numbers of her readers.

Chileans Part 2

I have yet to taste any Chilean food out in the countryside but I can tell you that the rise of the American culture has certainly influenced the country and food in Chile as well.  Much of the world is in a love and hate relationship with American culture, they hate rap but they love Eminem, they hate getting fat but love Mcdonald’s, etc.

NVR Toolkit – Be Grateful

We’ve built our life just the way we like it – No Vacation Required (NVR) style. It’s not always easy, but we’re happy to be living each and every day on our terms. Since dismantling our “old” lives, we regularly get a lot of questions about how we do it, why we do it and what exactly our new approach to life is like on the inside.

Blonde Penguin

Found at the massive Magellan penguin colony in Port Lockroy, Antarctica, this penguin is not a victim of being Albino.  It just has a loss of pigment in its skin.  These are very rare and are hard to find on any Antarctica travel ship.  The It was quite unique and we were lucky to have a world renowned penguin expert, Frank Todd, on board the ship.

“We have our own Sardine Run in the Philippines!” my friend Beth twitted me during the time I was obsessing about the Sardine Run in South Africa–after seeing it in BBC.
“Really? Where?”
“Moalboal in Cebu.”

Chileans Part 1

I not only tried a typical Chilean dish but also tried a delicious Chilean drink.  If you haven’t read my post on living in Chile then I should inform you that there are two things that are constant in Chile, endless amounts of delicious ice cream and women wearing ugly jeans.  I have now confirmed men wear ugly jeans but I digress.
