A taste of Ayurveda

A taste of Ayurveda; classic Indian medicine (video)

I love Ayurveda; the classic Indian medicine. Why? Because Ayurveda tries to keep healthy people healthy and tries to root out the cause of illness instead of treating symptoms. Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, said it ages ago. And yet nowadays Western doctors fill […]

I’m totally broke due to Indian demonetisation

Totally broke due to Indian demonetisation – Life of a Traveling Yogi (video)

Thanks to the Indian demonetisation I’m totally broke. I have precisely zero rupees left. I can’t pay for food, I can’t pay for groceries. I even can’t pay for a lime soda. The idea behind the demonitisation is to get the black money out of the Indian economy. I’m all for that, but at this […]

Climbing up Volcano Maderas

Climbing up Volcano Maderas

Volcanoes have something magical for me. Sleeping giants: beautiful and terrifying at the same time. Being in Central America I’m surrounded by them, so why not climb them? A few weeks ago Sally, Andrea, Nathan and me were on Ometepe, which has two volcanoes: Maderas and Concepcións. Concepcións was closed for climbing; too active, which left Maderas. So […]

Back to India

Back to India

It won’t be for a while, but slowly I’m thinking about what next. Not what next to do, because I’m happy doing what I’m doing: teaching yoga, giving massage therapy, doing photography, making movies and blogging. What I mean more is: where to go. Back to India looks like an option. I actually don’t want […]

Harvesting coffee

Harvesting coffee

There is something with the smell of coffee. Funny thing is: I don’t drink it. I actually get sick of it. I have some kind of allergy; but I love the smell. A few years ago I was working at the local broadcasting station in Tilburg, The Netherlands. The office was in an old, damp, […]
