My thoughts about Bali
Bali is wild and free. They say that it’s the place where the earth’s chakras intersect, creating an energetic force that sharpens every experience. Highs and lows, black and white, good and evil – Bali deals in duality. It’s a place that will teach you more about yourself than perhaps anywhere else on earth.
The sound of Hindu prayers at the temples, three times a day.
Visit a chakra reader. Climb a volcano. Go for a surf.
Take a vacation into My life
I’m a creative spirit with a bucket list a mile long and I’m a wandering nomad. I’ve lived in Toronto my whole life, but recently set out to explore the world. I love being by the sea and the mountains (preferably at the same time). I like eating good food and meeting new people, and if a destination has sunshine and a good cappuccino, I’m all set. At the beginning of last year I left home to travel the world and, during my time in southeast Asia I touched down in Bali and felt drawn to the island. After travelling through Europe for a while I, returned to Bali and decided to call it home, at least for a while.
Can I have two? Early morning when the rising sun shines across the rice fields, turning everything a brilliant shade of green. And sunset surfs, watching the sky ablaze in neon hues while floating in the sea.
Travel. Passion. People’s stories. Everything from a breathtaking landscape to an incredible meal. The ocean. People who are passionate about what they do and how they approach life.
Let’s ask them... “A chic adventurer,” “Awesome sense of style,” “A great friend, always there to share a laugh, a tear, a hug, an adventure.” “Eternal optimist.” “Lives by her own rules.” “Brave.”
Creative, active and full of surprises.
Newspapers: I tend to skim over whatever is popular in the city I’m in. In Toronto, I like the Globe & Mail and the crossword puzzles in the Toronto Star.
Magazines: Toronto Life, Vogue, InStyle, Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar, and Monocle.
Books: “All My Puny Sorrows” (by Canadian author Miriam Toews) is incredibly moving, “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” (by blogger Jenny Lawson) is incredibly hilarious, and “Infidel” (by Ayaan Hirsi Ali) is incredibly enlightening. I’ve also been trying to make my way through “The Power of Now” for about a kazillion years and I just finished “Life After Life,” which was spectacular.
“The Night Manager” with Tom Hiddleston was fantastic. I also love “Broad City,” “GIRLS,” “The Good Wife,” and “House of Cards.” “Sex and the City” is a series that will always hold up for me. For films, some of my favourites are “Crazy Stupid Love,” “This is Where I Leave You,” and “Incendies.”
Jennifer Lawrence. We’d play pranks on the flight attendants and be BFFs.
Anywhere in Italy. Paris. Copenhagen. Amsterdam. Munich. NYC. Bali. Lombok. Patagonia. Canada.
“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body. But rather, to skid in sideways – champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other – body thoroughly used up and totally worn out, screaming: Woo hoo! What a ride!”
Last year I travelled the world with a North Face Base Camp Duffel – it was my “monster” for the year and held up really well through countless boats, planes, trains, and buses. Now I’ve switched back to a hardside suitcase on wheels.
Wherever I go, I’m happiest if I have good food, good weather, good coffee, and loads of nature. Also, I make it my business to find the best gelato, ice cream, or bakery wherever I go.
the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
