Welcome to Less Is More the personal blog of a digital advertising connoisseur, media man, skier, somewhat avid cyclist, foodie, wine lover, car & history buff. Questions?

 

This weekend I will not be playing in the sand, I will be racing on my bike for the first time in a while.  My tan line will be the envy of the other riders…110 miles this week on the saddle.

Hiking is so different than running or walking or cycling. Your fingers cramp, you fear for life more than you enjoy what you are doing at times, and you fight mental and physically urges to not look down.  

Then you reach the top, take a huge breath and say only one thing, “wow.” Almost everyone can’t say anything more than “wow.”  I have hiked with plenty of people and this is the most used word, besides the occasional “whoa.”  Maybe it is the lack of oxygen, or the hiking high, but in unison all that is said is “wow.” 

Find your wow moment today, and I guarantee you it is not indoors.

It felt like I handed landed on the moon.  Rocks were everywhere, and there was not a soul on the beach.  These photos do not need an edit in my opinion, they should serve as a reminder of the natural unedited beauty of nature we see with our our eyes.  Thank you Pav for suggesting to visit El Matador beach.

Up high it seems as though nothing can touch you, but for me this is when anxiety begins.  Something has to go wrong, something big, right?  When it does, it it is a harsh reminder that reality is always kept in check by karma. You can’t escape the up’s and down’s of life, no one can, but you can prepare and attack them like a hill in cycling. So, when up high and alone, make sure you look down and remember your path and how you got there.

Live an honest and clean life and from what I have learned you can stay up high and soak in the sun.

Leaving Goa and Mumbai is one of the harder things I have done if my life. After a 18 year absence I found myself oddly at home, especially with a gracious host like Karishma. We may have met in NYC through friends, but I am leaving this country with one more best friend. She took care of me when I was sick, dealt with my early am wakings, made sure I had time to run, and even burped me a couple times.  She has a fiery side, which made me fear for my life, but most importantly she is more generous than me. Arranging cars, meals with special friends and including me in here in my everyday life. Its one thing to be blessed by her awesome post’s and her amazing blog’s, but I feel privileged to call someone like her one of my closest friends.

Next up: NYC, Buffalo, CT, VT, Buffalo, Bermuda and San Diego.
