Take me everywhere. Being on the back of a motor bike in Indonesia is my favorite feeling in the world. A chaotic meditation. A complete surrender. Hands off the wheel and held by each split second. Live or die. Doesn't matter. Take it as it comes. Somewhere in the Kintamani Hills. #explore #vagabond #wanderlust #bali #balineasy #adventureawaits #meditation #free #traveler #sendiri #solotravel #faraway #buythetickettaketheride #kintamani #thelongcut #theblueandthegreen #thedreamersdisease

Sunday 3-5 @oskarblues Tasty Weasel/Colorado HQ I will kicking out the jams JL style, which translates to dueling guitars with Eben Grace. I'm never the winner of said battle but the fun is where the fight is. Or mama that's where the fun is. Either way. Maybe some #longtuckians of the fair city of #longmontcolorado or #lyontowners or #boulderinos would like to get your #7-10% swerve on #craftbrew style. I will be enjoying a warm #cokezero. #storyofmylife. #withoutmusiciwouldnotpullthrough #thedreamersdisease #youcantalwaysgetwhatyouwant #butifyoutrysometimes #youfindyougetwhatyouneed #EBEg #be #coloradomusic #nashtele #sfg #theblueandthegreen

6 am Ubud Morning Morning. 'Selamat Pagi! Chantic, Chantic, Ibu.' (Good Morning! So beautiful, Mam.) I guzzled down so much of these wet Kodachrome saturations that I was fall down drunk. This is how I started many mornings... This place was my jam. This woman was my lady... she was one of dozens and dozens of flower ladies selling huge bushels of fresh cut flowers from the cool Kintamani Hills for the Balinese Hindu prayer offering baskets. After just one day, when she'd see me, she would put a few sprigs together and hand the bouquet to me. The first day I reached in my wallet pulling out some rupiah but she waved my hand away and just smiled. Terimah kasih Ibu I said holding the flowers to my heart and smiled the biggest smile my face could hold. 'Sama Sama.' she said smiling. She saw how much I loved the flowers and just wanted to make me happy. She saw my camera and posed for this photo. It is my favorite photo from my month of travels. The flowers she gave me felt the same as if she had pulled the moon down out of the sky like a balloon and gave it to me. #ubud #morningmarket #indonesia #theblueandthegreen #travelingsolo #bali #prayeroffering #hindu #balinese

I met Troy one morning at a hip place on Benesari. I was eating an Acai Bowl of frozen mango, gin-sued bananas and strawberries, sprinkled with acai seed and coconut granola. A little ramekin was served on the side with a teaspoon of yogurt and honey. My big iced Americano was already growing warm. 'Old school writing are ya?' He asked taking a swig of his frothy green juice sitting down beside me. (Hmm.Is he from Austrailia?New Zealand? )'Yeah, totally. I'm keeping it real. The old pen and paper still holds up. My iPad and Everything else got stolen in the Gilis.' An hour later Troy and I are off to Canggu and places unknown on his motor bike. 'I just want to go for a surf first, yeah, when we get there and then I can take you to La Laguna and anywhere else you want.'OK.' I said. 'I've got the day off. No plans' 'Yeah? You up for an adventure are ya?' He asked. 'Always.' I sat on the back of his motor bike. My short dress pushed up around my thighs. 'I've got a back way we can go.' He said. 'Great.' I said. 'This is our first motor bike date.' He said to me over his shoulder swerving us against the oncoming traffic. Hmmm. Date? Not really on the agenda but here we go. #mrtroy #canggu #surf #bali #theblueandthegreen #buythetickettaketheride #travelingsolo #whoknowswherethedaywilltakeyou #rollthedice

I get it. There are many, many places that look like this closer than 40 hours away but there is something to being 40 hours/9,116 miles away, living in a different day, south of the equator. Haven't heard an American accent in 5 days. I miss my dog. Bells on the clop clop horse carts sound like Christmas. But do not worry, Jack Johnson is playing. He's always playing in places like this #giliair #lombok #indonesia #theblueandthegreen #sendiri #wanderlust #buythetickettaketheride #asfarawayasyougojackjohnsonisalwaysthere #ourgenerationsjimmybuffet #thankgodnodrumcircles #yet at Gili Air

Selamat Siang to Gili Air. No Motor bikes, no cars. Watched killer band (no joke) playing many covers like Heroes (my favorite David Bowie Song) and Lynyrd Skynyrd, back to back. So this is totally working out. Asian bands are note for note, and absolutely nail the songs. Agenda for today, work on a deeper shade of brown- girl (new Crayola color) buy water, get massage on the beach... ummm that's all I have for now. I hope my trip is inspiring to you and maybe others. I am not trying to brag. I want to share this experience with others in hopes they will get out of their box, get stamps in their passport, go down a road less traveled and make their dreams happen (whatever they happen to be). Going solo is absolutely freeing. I've worked so hard to get here again (emotionally, mentally, spiritually and financially). It's been 9 years and I never gave up on my dream to come back and do all the things I never did the first time. And these words I type are a bit of a mini blog. The sun is hitting the west coast and the blue and green water is so clear. Oh and one other thing on the agenda today: swimming in the blue and the green. #todayisthefirstdayoftherestofmylife #wanderlust #theblueandthegreen #giliair #sendiri #lombok #indonesia PS@coloradograss I'm looking at a mellow little surf break with not one soul on it. β™₯️🌊 at Gili Air

I left on Monday... 3 plane rides/ 24 hours in air/airports. Denver>Seattle>Shanghai>Denpasar. 2 rest days in Kuta, Bali. A 4 hour taksi adventure>an hour long boat ride and a 10 minute clop clop horse and buggy ride and 5 days later I'm on Gili Air eating Gado Gado as the goes down. I'm sure glad I did my research and got this sunset bungalow ahead of time. Not usually my style. Open air bathroom with 'locking glass door' in my bungalow will be helpful to see snakes before I walk in barefoot to go pee. I'm sure that the 2" door to floor gap will keep them out of my room, too. #sigh #welcometothejunglebaby #nowilaymedowntosleep #lombok #giliair #pandanbungalow #facingfears #workhardtogetwhereyouwannabe #buythetickettaketheride #wanderlust #stayingput #noplans #timewilltell #theblueandthegreen at Grand Sunset - Gili Air

I am starting to feel very far away... going to places I've never been. On the road to Amed. A three and a half hour journey with Ari, my taksi driver. We laughed the whole way and had quite the adventure, taking the scenic route, naturally. He had never been this way before and thought I was crazy for not going to the more known Padangai Bai to take a boat to the Gilis. Since I've already done that, I decided to come to a lesser known area to jump off from. I'm definitely on the road less traveled. #facingfears #trustyourinstincts #theblueandthegreen #wanderlust #bali #faraway #noteveryonescupoftea #sendiri #todayisthefirstdayoftherestofmylife #buythetickettaketheride #liveyourdreams #riceterrace #ricefieldsbali #junglefever #wildmonkeys at Desa Tista, Kecamatan Abang, Kabupaten KarangAsem.

Gili Air, Indonesia... May 23 2008. Took this photo with a friend's camera because on the first day of my travels, I was being all paranoid at Hot Ton Sai Thailand, thinking that if I went swimming, someone would steal my bag on the beach. I was dying to swim in the sea foam water for the first time (after living in Winterville at 9,000' for 15 years). I was sun stroking out, and I took my brand new camera swimming with me in a little "dry bag"... turns out it wasn't so dry after all. Maybe it was because I actually took the dry bag in the water with me. $500 brand new Camera was ruined on day one of a three month trip. This was back before iPhones... or if there was, it would be another 4 years before I got one. I am so excited to have 3 cameras coming with me on my travels. #gopro #canon #iphone #giliislands #lombok #indonesia #spacebetween #theblueandthegreen #liveyourdreams #wanderlust #solotravel #sendiri #prettymuchgoingbackhere #staysexyanddontgetmurdered #dontgetrobbed

Sometimes on a Friday night a smooth, raspy whiskey or a buttery Cabernet would sure hit the spot but that's not my game anymore...So I might as well book a faraway flight to Tokyo, Java and Bali. I've waited 9 years to say this and in that time I've run into so many brick walls, took out giant stretches of guard rails and drove a few trains right off the tracks just trying to get back here. #anounceofhopeisworthatonofdespair #liveyourdreams #sailingsolo #wanderlust #lalala #stampsinmypassport #baikbaik #selamatminumbali #breakonthroughtotheotherside #indo #theblueandthegreen #imgoingfarawaysouthofthesnow #ineveryspacebetweenthereisseafoamgreen #dearprudence #onemonthisntenoughbutitwillhavetodo
