Super Moon in Ko Phangan

We spent three nights in Phi Phi before traveling by boat and bus to get to Ko Phangan. We came with the masses from the Adamenan sea over to Siam sea and the island of Ko Phangan. We arrived the day before summer solstice and three days before the full moon party on Had Rin beach. The plan was […]

Mutianyu Section and final day on The Wall

Here is where we trekked over the last week…you need super sight powers to read it but I wanted to include it anyway!

I kept hoping that we were going to have one day with sunshine while hiking the wall but no such luck. The last day was actually the stormiest of them all with high winds and rain. Today […]

Hiking the Baden Powell Trail

With only a week to go before heading off to China to trek The Great Wall with IBD Adventures, I figured it was time to get outside, and the hill program on the treadmill wasn’t cutting it anymore! On Sunday morning, Faye, Ali, Stephen, Rosie and I started out from Lynn Headwaters in North Vancouver and headed west. We […]

Body Art and Celebrating One Year Colon-Free

One of my most recent adventures was getting inked at the Vancouver Tattoo and Body Art Convention by Katia @ Rainfire Tattoo. I wanted to share because this work of art has been a a symbol for me along my journey the last couple years. The symbol, known as the Flower of Life (a term coined by Drunvalo Melchizedek) is […]

A Perfect Ending in Buenos Aires

I had the most wonderful few days in Buenos Aires as my last stop on this great South American adventure. I said goodbye to the friends that I had met along the way and headed out on my own. I knew I was finally ready! I have had countless beautiful reminders over the last several weeks that the Universe […]

Floating in Laguana Cezar and Vallee de la luna at sunset

Since we never actually made it to the Valley of the moon on our bike ride adventure the other night, we decided to book a car to take us there. The tour also included an afternoon at the Laguna Cezar which is this super salty swimming hole in the desert…similar to the Dead Sea. What an interesting experience to […]

Sunset and star gazing from sand dunes

One of my most memorable adventures on this trip so far has been the night, Michael, Andrew, Rich and I rented bikes and headed out of town at golden hour, with the hopes of making it to the Vallee del luna for sunset. We underestimated the time it would take to get there and when we arrived at the […]

San Pedro de Atacama

Finally, warm weather and maybe the best shower I have ever had! You can imagine after 3 days without one and splashing our feet in the water on the salt flats doesn’t count! I love this quaint Chilean holiday spot. It is full of vacationers, local and foreigners, there are great restaurants and lounges with dj’s playing great music. […]

Isla del Sol

This is where the Inca’s believe that the sun was born and the next island over is Isla del Luna, the birth place of the moon. The Inka legend says that it was the god, Viracocha, who rose here from Lake Titicaca after a great flood, to create the sun, moon and stars. There is also an underwater temple […]

Machu Picchu

Had the most incredible day hiking by myself at Machu Picchu! My day started before dawn, i walked from my hostel in Ollantaytambo down to catch the 6:40 train through Inka Rail. I had my lunch packed and a spring in my step as I started on my adventure. Things were off to a great start, the sun was […]
