AM I HUNGRY?

It was a rainy afternoon 6 years ago when I visited a homeopathic doctor that told me I looked terrible on the inside. She told me I seriously needed to change my diet. That was my first wake up call of many in connection to food. After that I slowly started thinking more about what I ate but it took time and a lot of effort to change my unhealthy habits.

One of the best things I did in the beginning was reading and watching documentaries about health. But this also got me confused, there are so many ways out there, so what really is the best way?

THE PLAY WAY

I (David) have met some amazing people in my life, and few have inspired me to the moon and back. Some of those people who have affected me the most have one thing in common, and it´s childlike qualities…..the ability to laugh (expecially at themselves), curiosity for life and the ability to play.

Why not play more? We are on this planet one time only (debatable) so is there a way and time to play a little more? No? Yes?

Anyways, here´s a video of people playing (and practicing) at the Arambol beach. Enjoy!

“WAX ON WAX OFF”

Remember The Karate Kid? Well I (Dagný) feel like him these days but only Mr. Miyagi is combined into a Scottish dude with long hair and Canadian yogini with a full tattooed sleeve.

The yoga teacher training is full on, 6 days a week from 6 am to 7 pm, strict diet, hours of asana, pranayama, kriyas, chanting, meditation, teachers training and talks about the philoshophy/science of yoga.

In the middle of these intense practices, when I am totally exhausted and on the verge of giving up I have some inspiring teachers in front of me that have done some intense practices and have wild stories to tell..

ROCKING A ROUTINE

After being on the road with no routine at all we´ve now settled down in Goa. Dagný has started her 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training and is following a strict routine while I (David) have all the time in the world, but to do what?

THE HIPPIE WAY

Did we arrive 40 years too late in Arambol?

In the 60´s and 70´s the hippies found Arambol beach and settled down due to it´s isolation and stunning beauty. Arambol has changed a lot since then with growing popularity and commercialization, but still has it´s charm and attracts people from all over the world with an alternative lifestyle in mind. Artists, yogi´s, performers, designers, craftsmen and all kinds of people come here and live for up to 6 months every year, to work, chill and enjoy. Many of these seasonal residents in Arambol have been coming here for years, and it´s their home away from home. The word “hippie” has changed a lot since it first emerged but people still seem attracted to what the original hippie stood for. Is it because they tried to things differently?

SURVIVAL KIT

In between the picturesque places we have visited in our travels in the north of India, there where some very difficult moments that are in retrospect our most exiting memories and stories to tell. We decided to travel this part of the trip on a strict budget to prove the point that you don´t need a lot of money to travel or enjoy.

PEOPLE OF NORTH INDIA

Now that we have finished our travels in the north we think of all the brilliant people we met on the way, some we got to know well, some inspired us for a moment. This was a complete afterthought and we wished that we had taken photos of all the lovely people we met, but here are some of traveling souls we remembered to capture!

WILD VARANASI

Varanasi is a bustling city with humans and animals co-existing in a spectacular way. Animals are a part of everyday life in India. In the west we´ve become so distant from animal wildlife that we have to go to special parks, zoo´s and shops to see animals. Is there another way?

INDIAN HAIRWAYS

Sorry to all the people in the hair-cutting business but there is another way……

2. Allow your friend to cut your hair

3. Don´t cut your hair

4. Fly to India for a 1$ haircut……..
