Sunsay Snap: Yoga at El Morro

Yoga at El Morro |

Castillo San Felipe del Morro, also known as El Morro sits at the mouth of San Juan Bay and was built to protect the city from attacks from the sea. Construction began in 1539 and additions were continually added over the next 400 years. A handful of sentry posts, known as garitas, dot the perimeter and if you’ve ever seen any tourism images for Puerto Rico you know they’re practically a national symbol. I knew that if I was going to add another yoga photo to my collection having a garita in the picture would be best. I managed to find a quiet spot and a ledge on the lighthouse that sits atop the fort. Half lotus seems to be my go-to for these situations.

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. I shop the sale racks of higher end clothing stores and always search for a discount coupon before buying online. Getting a hotel room for 62% off normal rates has me stoked. Getting lots of bang for my buck with Travel Pony.
