Sunday Snap: Yoga at the Bean

Yoga Around the World - Chicago |

Cloud Gate, aka The Bean, is one of my favourite spots in Chicago so of course I had to get a photo taken there doing tree pose. I have a small collection of photos of me doing yoga poses around the world and I try to add to it each time I go on a trip. Last time I was in Chicago it was half lotus in the glass box at SkyDeck, 1300′+ over the city. Do you have any photos traditions when you travel?

Introducing Travel Pony

Travel Pony for Hotel Deals |

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love getting a deal. I’m pretty sure I get this from my mother’s side of the family.

Getting lots of bang for my buck with Travel Pony.
