Bits of Bavarian beauty

Here are a few last gems from my trip to Bavaria, which was saturated with moments of breathtaking beauty that were irresistible to my camera lens.

From towering forests:

There is nothing that makes my heart sing more than seeing tiny humans rocking it on bikes. The most badass kid I saw was this girl, probably 8 or 9 years old, absolutely powering it up the hills on a mountain bike. Her younger sister valiantly tried to keep up with the gruelling pace, but the hills (understandably) got the better of her. I have no doubt that this team of tiny rockstars will be conquering the mountains in no time. DSC_6603  Also, is there anything cute than tiny bicycles? I don’t think so. IMG_3306For the first time, I packed a travel yoga mat for my trip. I treated myself to  eKO Superlight Travel Mat from Manduka. This  incredibly lightweight mat (1kg) is really thin and FOLDABLE! Because it is so thin, don’t expect a ton of cushioning, but I was really impressed with how sticky the mat was, and I felt very securely grounded in the poses.

And, because I know that my “fans” have been wondering where my “dancing like a maniac in public places” video is, you will be relieved and delighted to know that I do have one for Bavaria. Enjoy! 🙂 

If you somehow missed the other MASTERPIECES featuring my pals Leigh and Andrea, you can watch all the ones I have made so far on this playlist. 

Back to regularly scheduled life (for at least another week) until my next adventure!

xoxo
