Whenever I meet new people and tell them the identify of my blog, they say, oh, you must travel quite a bit.” Which I suppose I do travel greater than many people, however that is not the point. As I mentioned earlier, the Dalai Lama was scheduled to give three days of educating from the 11th via the 13th of November upon request from a gaggle of Koreans. Anybody might attend the teachings as His Holiness’s temple can accommodate two to three thousand people comfortably, so three days prior I took my two passport photographs and paid my ten rupees (16 cents US) on the Dalai Lama’s Safety Office on Bhagsu Street not far from the city sq., receiving my security badge in lower than ten minutes.

For this, I blame Daniel Kalder and his e book ‘Lost Cosmonaut’ ( reviewed by DT here ). Having read it a few years in the past, long earlier than I had ever set foot in the Former Soviet Union, his description of the Kalymk capital conjured up photos of an absurd wasteland on the sad periphery of Europe, trembling under the megalomania of a chess-loving, enemy-assassinating dictator whereas slowly disintegrating into the mud of the countless steppe surrounding it. I enjoyed the ebook and its description of Kalymkia, and was intrigued by idea of a Buddhist enclave within Europe which was obsessive about chess and had nothing of any consequence to offer the world. Though then an armchair desolationist as but uninitiated to the fun of travel in the fringes of the Soviet empire, the ebook sparked my creativeness and by no means light from my reminiscence.
Skydiving is climate dependent activity, the weather was very unhealthy throughout our keep in Queenstown and no skydiving activity in any respect, although I made the booking with NZONE weeks in the past before the journey. I didn’t hand over, I referred to as Skydive Wanaka and came upon that they have been open for the jump so I referred to as a taxi (my accomplice need the car to take the Shotover Jet ) and paid $200 for it simply to convey me to Wanaka airport to catch their final flight on my last day in Queenstown. Sound costly right? I simply wished to ensure I did skydive in NZ so I made a decision to pay for it it doesn’t matter what.
Hawaii is incredible. I hadn’t been back since I was a flower girl in my uncle’s marriage ceremony back in 1995 so I was so excited when Aveda invited me to Oahu for Wanderlust. The yoga and music competition was an incredible experience and, despite the tremendous long flight (12h) it was worth the journey in every approach. Noelle and I made the long voyage and spent 5 days absorbing the sun, consuming piña coladas and attempting out new things like aerial yoga & stand up paddle board yoga. I’m sharing some of my favourite photos from our Hawaiian journey.
