Couples who travel together stay together – as the old saying goes. Although I’m not quite a prime example of that myself. So how about going on retreats for couples together?
Not only does a couple holiday allow you to create some amazing memories with your other half, but it also helps to increase communication, trust and intimacy in a relationship. Especially if the trip you’re taking is a specialised retreat for couples.
The mystical Central American nation of Costa Rica is a place of stunning and lush jungle scenery, jaw-dropping beaches and an altogether welcoming country where you can lose yourself in the mists of ancient time and find yourself all over again. Your true deep self. And if you decide to embark on a yoga retreat Costa Rica has it all.
Screw men. Haha lol, not really, but just a tiny bit, still. This 2021, all I want is to gather with soul sisters and practice mindfulness away from men in a women retreat where I can let my hair down and my inner Wild Woman run free.
If you’ve been reading my articles about spas around the world, you might have noticed an emerging pattern. If you haven’t — newsflash: I seem to have taken a liking to getting buck naked in public. I mean, who doesn’t? Right? Righhhhhhttttt? Anyone? Well, ok, fine. Today, for a change, let me tell you about this one time in Iceland when I did not in fact get naked at the spa. It does happen, sometimes. But can you go to the Blue Lagoon naked? What is wrong with you, you perverts!
Today, I wanted to talk about my top 10 vegan Europe travel destinations for the year.
Europe is a magnet for travellers from all over the world, and for vegans, it definitely deserves the title of meat-free mecca continent-wide. The same is also true for travellers and those on vacation who just want to eat healthier, and do their bit for the environment and animal compassion. We don’t all have to tuck into steaks all the time, and you too can embark on a travel odyssey as part of your exploration of the mighty continent of the most vegan-friendly cities in Europe. Being a vegan in Europe is definitely easy!
I’m such a fan of yoga for boosting the mind-body balance and helping me achieve way more in life, that I hardly know where to start describing my experience and continuing journey. One place I do know where to begin is with my YTT in India, where a whole new world of knowledge, understanding and compassion opened up to me. I learned to spread my wings in a way that has altered my outlook on the world and has changed me forever.
Stop saying that Summer is over! Kids are finally back in school, beaches are at long last quiet, it’s time to plan a yoga retreat Europe vacation! I know many of you (including myself) often look towards South-East Asia or South America for a retreat, but when the budget is tight and the time is short, there’s no need to go too far afield, as there are amazing options for a retreat in Europe. And while some countries may seem more appropriate than others for a relaxing yoga retreat Europe holiday because of their proximity to beaches or nature, I’ve found that there are fantastic options literally everywhere!
If you are traveling from America to Europe, then taking Iceland self drive tours is a brilliant idea, as it is pretty much smacked in the middle and it is honestly one of the most fascinating countries I have ever been too. Icelandair understood that and is now offering up to a seven-day layover at no additional cost on many trans-Atlantic routes. Once you’re in Iceland, because of the poor public transport system outside of Reykjavik, there are two ways to explore all the things to do in Iceland: either by A – joining a group tour (and you may have read that it isn’t exactly my thing…) or B – by renting a car and doing your self drive Iceland trip like a big adult baby.
As I write this I am preparing to go on my first international trip in a verrrrry long time (thanks coronavirus!). Although taking a forced break from travel for the first half of 2020 has been challenging, in some ways I’m grateful because it has allowed me to reflect on what is eco travel, how my eco travel practices are and how much more environmentally sustainable they could be.
