Where's home? mama earth. the beach. jungle huts. wood floors. everywhere and anywhere my heart arrives into.

What was/is your last/current trip? This year has been a delicious whirlwind for me! I'm packing up this month to teach a festival in Colorado, visit my beloved in Victoria, rock out a teacher training in Vancouver, a conference in Texas, then up to Prince George for another YTT. More in California, Saskatoon, Thailand, Mexico and Bali on the schedule too!

Where's home? I have a home base in Vancouver — and I am learning to 'stay' (build a home and roots) but alas I am leaving again this weekend!

What was/is your last/current trip? I am leaving this Sunday. Flying to Finland to watch my boyfriend compete in a SnowKiting world cup. We will be snowshoeing, winter camping and kite skiing (I've never done this before and very excited to try!). Then driving south doing a large loop of northern Europe on a 'Acro Tour' going to 11 countries and teaching AcroYoga in 5 of them. Driving across; Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark an Sweden. Also in the middle of that road trip we will fly to Namibia (southern Africa) and do a 20 day trek across the desert, mountains, kitesurfing on the ocean and teach our own Acro Yoga retreat in Windhoek.

This trip is different for me because it is very well planned (with spreadsheets! haha). Where as in the past I've often just stuck my thumb out and went with the wind.

Where's home? Uh, a lot of places. I was born in Australia, but grew up in New Zealand. I've since lived in seven more countries since I was 18. I have many "homes".

What was/is your last/current trip? Just had a month off work — went to Dominican Republic on a road trip, Trinidad for Carnival, Jamaica to relax, Haiti for something different, Miami as a base, and Chicago to visit a friend. It was snowing. I only had summer clothes, needless to say, I didn't stay there too long!

What was/is your last/current trip? The past eighty-eight days have been a whirlwind of adventures through SE Asia for me. I have nearly two months left and could not be more excited. It all began in Bangkok where I headed up north landing in Chiang Mai for a couple weeks. Taking the slow boat to Luang Prabang and staying there teaching English to preschoolers for a month. Continuing on to Vietnam I found some of the best people and most incredible adventures as I traveled from Hanoi and Saigon. What I did not realize when I first arrived in Vietnam is the impact it would have on me and the small piece of my heart I would leave there. I am currently sitting in Kampot, Cambodia enjoying the ceiling fan, while eating chicken Amok.
