Yoga, Wine & Travel – a Travel & Yoga Blog

I have spent the majority of my life in Hong Kong and the city never ceases to amaze me: Hong Kong has it all. Are you a foodie? Hong Kong has you covered. Love immersing yourself in nature? Done and done. Are you a shopaholic? We’ve got dozens of malls and markets. A lover of rooftop bars? There are too many to count. If you are visiting Hong Kong for the first time and want to see the quintessential, iconic sights of the city, then here are 8 things you must do

Portovenere is often overshadowed by its neighboring towns along the Ligurian coast of Italy, but is an amazing destination in its own right (and a whole lot less crowded than Cinque Terre). Portovenere is located in what is known as the “Gulf of Poets” because many famous poets, writers and artists sought inspiration from this beautiful part of the world and spent their days in the villages and islands within the gulf. Portovenere houses the stunning Castle Doria, Byron’s Grotto, The Church of San Pietro and a number of fun little swimming

Participating in a yoga retreat can be a transformational and intense experience. Yoga retreats provide a wonderful opportunity to deepen your yoga practice (or kick-start it) and a chance to discover new skills, techniques and realizations along the way both physically and mentally. There are dozens of types of yoga retreats: meditation-based, adventure retreats, music and sound-healing, ayurveda, and even hula hoop yoga! Now imagine going on your first-ever retreat, and not talking! Silent retreats are designed to allow for quiet contemplation and meditation, and conserving energy in order to turn inward. While

Bellissima Portofino! A place made famous by its picture perfect port, colourful array of buildings and celebrity sightings. The little town along the Italian riviera was the inspiration for the 1950s song, “Love in Portofino”! While it may be often overshadowed by its neighbour, Cinque Terre, Portofino is a wonderful day trip destination for anyone visiting the region of Liguria and can be easily reached from the five towns that make up Cinque Terre: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare. Here’s what you need to know to help plan

Santorini is quite possibly one of the most photographed places in the world, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why. It is arguably the most well-known out of the 220 islands that make up the Cyclades in the Aegean sea, and much like Cinque Terre in Italy, officials have decided to limit the number of tourists that are permitted to visit. When we planned our trip to Greece last year, we knew that in addition to Athens, Delphi, Meteora and Olympia, there was no way that we could possibly skip

Instead of focusing on a particular city or country, I’ve chosen to dedicate this post to elephant sanctuaries, orphanages and national parks around the world to celebrate World Elephant Day (coming up on August 12th)!  Growing up, I loved all kinds of animals, but I’ve always felt especially drawn to these gentle giants. They are intelligent and social, soft but protective, statuesque yet unostentatious. After I graduated from college (bear in mind this was almost a decade ago!), my friends and I went on a trip to Phuket for some R&R, and somehow

To be entirely honest, I rarely get a craving for dessert and tend to avoid super sugary food, but I find it really hard to say no to a good coffee ice cream and have been known to hunt down mango-flavored shaved ice. The beauty of Hong Kong’s restaurant scene is that you can seriously find anything that tickles your fancy: for me, that’s unique (mostly Asian) desserts that you don’t tend to find in other places, and desserts that don’t make me feel like I’ve overindulged and need to

To quote Condé Nast Traveler, Sri Lanka Is Ready for Its Close-Up! Since my first trip to Sri Lanka in 2015, I have been back every 2-3 months and it almost feels like a second home now. It feels like Sri Lanka’s reputation as the up-and-bookicoming destination in Asia has truly blossomed over the past 18 months and if for some reason you need convincing, here are 10 excellent reasons why now is the time to see Ceylon. There are some common misconceptions about Sri Lanka as the civil war
