A Map to Anywhere – Episode 2. From Farming to Facebook

September 16, 2018 2 min read

From Farm to Facebook Aimee’s Farm When you imagine a Norwegian farmer, there are probably a few different images that come to mind, but most likely none of them look like Aimee Larsen. They probably look a lot more like Old MacDonald and say things like E-I-E-I-O, whatever that’s supposed to mean. I love stories…

Koh Phangan's Hippie Community

Living on the Fringes of a Fringe Community I am back in the yoga community of Koh Phangan, Thailand. If you are a frequent reader, you know this island is in Thailand, but rather than being distinctly Thai, it is more like the Bermuda Triangle of new-age spirituality, which I wrote about here. This island…

Koh Phangan – The Bermuda Triangle of New Age Spirituality

March 03, 2018 5 min read

Koh Phangan is like the Bermuda Triangle of New Age Spiritualism. It seems to hold travelers and drifters as though they are ships in the Bermuda Triangle, but this little slice of heaven makes me wonder why anyone would want to leave? And yet I am. It’s time to get back to dry land. Forget…

Trust “You don’t trust men!” were the words that were shouted to me one night a few weeks ago. I was the passenger on a motorbike, and the driver had yelled them back to me as we zoomed down the coastal road in the late evening humidity of Koh Phangan, Thailand. I’d like to take…

Tame the Beast – Men in Leggings

February 27, 2018 6 min read

In the midst of all this spiritual searching and physical exercise, I have felt like I’ve grown and matured. I feel more free and happy. I feel like I’m less judgmental and more accepting than I was when I arrived. There’s just one exception…. One thing that I can’t seem to get past and it…

What is a Yoga Retreat Like?

February 10, 2018 7 min read

During the last week, feelings have come and gone in waves but I’m learning to keep my ahead above water. Two weeks at this yoga retreat! Two weeks so far! It’s like being turned inside out emotionally and thrown in a washing machine. At least for me. I came in with the attitude “go big…

I’m bringing my weirdness to a yoga retreat In the morning, I begin a yoga retreat. Have you ever seen Parks and Rec? I feel like what Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec would be like at a yoga retreat. Or Happy Gilmore when he becomes a golfer. It’s been almost two weeks since I…

I’m back in Thailand! The last time I was here it was July of 2014 and I wandered around this country for about a month. Half of that was on my own and half was with my little sister Molly. Since then, I’ve travelled quite a bit, but Thailand has always been in the back…

The Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle

August 14, 2014 2 min read

The Golden Triangle used to be a major hub of the opium trade. Today, it’s still involved in some sketchy business. I went on a tour that advertised seeing the Golden Triangle along with a quick boat trip into Laos. As I reached the bottom of the dock a random Thai man shoved a camera…
