Postcard from Bali

2019-02-12T17:52:46+00:00

Postcard from Bali It's WILD here in Bali! We've been here in Bali with our Adventurous Life group for only a week now, and have already had some amazing experiences! I (Linda) sit now in our gorgeous coworking space, rivaled only by the even more gorgeous villas we live in, and I have several fun highlights to share with you. Before I do, I want to make sure you know that THIS weekend through what we're calling Travel Tuesday is an opportunity for you to save $1,000 off of Adventurous Life 2019 trip rates! All you have to do [...]

Pug in a Blanket

2019-02-12T17:54:53+00:00

Pug in a Blanket Pam here. Cute picture huh? This is pretty much what I look like as I'm writing to you. The cold weather has hit Ontario and I've been wrapping myself up in blankets and lamenting about the summer past. It's actually snowing - ick. It's the first time I've seen the white stuff this year and it's not one of my favourite sights. :( If you're like me and hate the cold and want to chase the summer, come along with us to the gloriously warm beauty of Southeast Asia. We have two spots left [...]

$10 Massages?

2019-02-12T17:57:51+00:00

$10 Massages? One of the things Pam and I are MOST looking forward to on our next Adventurous Life co-working trip to BALI is the $10 massages! YES, you read that right: $10 for a 60-minute massage! We're thinking we might just have to get one every day while we're there! I mean, how much goodness can we stand?!As a reminder, Pam and I are taking a group of entrepreneurs to BALI in mid-November for an experience like no other. It's part retreat, part live-abroad experience, part workshop, part business mastermind, part tour -- and because it's Bali, part [...]

Freestyle Fridays: What are they all about?

2019-02-12T18:01:16+00:00

Freestyle Fridays: What are they all about? When Pam and I talk and write about our Adventurous Life trips, we tend to focus on the locations we're in...or headed to. I mean, of course! They ARE amazing. And beautiful. And exciting. Portugal, Rome, Bali. (And our soon-to-be-announced 2019 destinations!) They're the stars of the experience, for sure.But what's interesting is that when we ask our participants for highlights of their experience, almost all of them mention our Freestyle Friday get-togethers. They are what truly make the experience of an Adventurous Life trip so unique -- and SO VALUABLE to [...]

The Bali Way

2019-02-12T18:04:56+00:00

The Bali Way Five days into our Adventurous Life month-long co-working trip in Rome, we are absolutely LOVING it!Some of our Rome participants get up at the crack of dawn and walk the streets of historic Rome without the crowds of tourists. Gorgeous! Others stay up late drinking delicious red wine, enjoying the fresh night air and getting to know new friends. In our 5 short days here, we've all gotten situated in our local apartments (a 5-minute walk from St. Peter's Basilica!), taken a tour highlighting the magnificence of Rome, shared dinner AND enjoyed a potluck, learned [...]

Final Boarding Call (Rome)

2019-02-12T18:09:56+00:00

ROME REGISTRATION CLOSING THIS WEEK. Pam here and truthfully, if I let fear dictate, I wouldn't be writing to you today. I was in your position less than two years ago when I traveled to Buenos Aires with a group similar to Adventurous Life (but with younger - much younger participants). I really wanted to travel, just not alone, and it was really hard to find friends who could travel as often and for as long as I wanted. I took the leap. And let me tell you, that leap was SO far outside my comfort zone... AND [...]

Birds on a Wire

2019-02-12T18:22:11+00:00

Like Birds on a Wire Have you ever had "magic mushrooms?" When I (Linda) was 30, I traveled with 3 friends to the highlands of southern Mexico and had my one and only experience with them. But what a memory! It's not the sort of thing I'd normally write you about. But one thing that happened during the experience perfectly illustrates something I wanted to describe to you about the way our Adventurous Life trips work. :-)One of my 3 friends with me in Mexico was the daring sort and discovered where to find fresh mushrooms, so we [...]

Working in Rome

2019-02-12T18:17:19+00:00

Working in Rome We've been talking a lot about Rome -- the food, the hidden gems, the opportunity to "find yourself" there on our Adventurous Life trip in September. But don't forget...this is a coworking trip. We are taking solopreneurs and professionals to live AND work in Rome for a month. Why? What's the benefit of working in Rome...or, for that matter, in Bali or any amazing destination?   Because the reality is, work is work, wherever you do it. You write emails, you talk to clients, you do your marketing. Or, it's more project-like: you write a book, [...]

Secret Gems of Rome

2019-02-12T18:20:48+00:00

Secret Gems of Rome Yes, Rome is a feast of well-known ancient and historical attractions—the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter's Basilica, etc.But did you know THESE exist in Rome... A keyhole through which the famous St. Peter's dome is perfectly centered (intentionally)?An actual pyramid built in the 18th century BC?A church decorated with the BONES of more than 4,000 friars? It's macabre, but beautiful.A cat sanctuary for homeless or special needs kitties inside the ruins of one of the oldest temples (400-300 BC)—which sits just below busy city streets? The actual birthplace of Fettuccine Alfredo? A Renaissance-era "Monster [...]

Italian Food

2019-02-12T18:26:01+00:00

Mmmm... Italian Food The Italians are funny. When they go out of their country, all they want to eat is Italian food, LOL.  That's because they know it's the best!The food is why Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the popular Eat, Pray, Love book, headed to Italy for the first leg of her journey of self-discovery. And also one of the reasons why WE are heading there in September with an Adventurous Life 40+ coworking group! Because there awaits food that is simply divine! The freshest ingredients, the flavors that don't quit, all combined in simple, love-filled celebrations [...]
