I promised that I’d share my journey with it’s highs and lows and everything in between. I woke up with a super swollen knee today that didn’t actually fit into a yoga pants (I’m starting to find it funny now, but I felt so agitated, upset, and anxious at the time). I acknowledge that I’ve overworked my body the past couple do weeks with 12 hour yoga days, mountain treks, waterfall climbs, and just wanting to discover all the little things all over town. That was my cue to slow down a bit and respect my body. Traveling requires mental stamina, you will hit lows but there’s always a bigger picture, mine in this case is the fact that I’m here, in the middle of the rice fields, doing what I love. So what if my body isn’t feeling 💯 at the moment, it will heal, it will pass!
Every sunset here is so beautiful. To me sunsets feel as if the days slate is getting washed clean as you enter the next phase of time. I love sitting out and watching them wherever I go but they are extra special here. ^ . ^ Australia2017

Every time I walk by plants, they start quivering in fear wishing “pleeeeez don’t pick meeee”. Sigh 😔 I’m guilty of being a plant killer. Flowers, however, die in no time so I got me a fresh bouquet at my fave market @brotherandsistersflowers 💐 🤷🏻♀️

What is it about dreamy doorways that make me stop for a million photos of it? It’s not going anywhere or changing but I just can’t help myself! I think doors say so much about the design and heart of a destination.

Bali has a gazillion temples. Every house in Bali has its own private temple in the front, with the house itself making an appearance once you've navigated your way through the temple.
While you are sometimes allowed to enter these private temples of the locals, you are never allowed to pray it in. And with community temples, or even grander ones like this, you won't be allowed into the temple to begin with. Often times, only descendants of the family are allowed to enter/pray.
It almost feels like they are a little possessive. 😛 But I truly appreciated the fact that even as tourists, they expected you to respect the decorum and sanctity of these temples. They would hand out sarongs at the entrance and have you tie one around your waist before you enter. I know for a fact that they don't do much of this in India, so I was pleasantly surprised!
The @parkerpalmsprings has an interesting and long history. In the 50s, it was California’s first Holiday Inn. In the 60s, the property was purchased by the “singing cowboy,” Gene Autry. In the 90s, fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy transformed it into the Givenchy Hotel & Spa. Later that same decade, TV personality Merv Griffin bought it. It is now a @leadinghotelsoftheworld property with a @jonathanadler designed whimsical mid-century aesthetic. Celebrities have often frequented this #PalmSprings hotel. I like to imagine that this sign is a wink to the notorious arrest of actor Robert Downey Jr here for drug possession. 😉✌🏻💊 #thespacesilike
