Maybe it’s time to share another cat we loved… This is Barsik, a pretty regal cat who’s from Russia and lives in Cambodia. He’s one of two resident cats at Simple Things in Kampot, where Jen taught yoga last year - and it’s legitimately one of the best restaurants we’ve been to in Southeast Asia! You might see Barsik prowling around the entrance (or napping), and sometimes he even pops into the yoga studio. 😺 @simple.things.kampot
Our week in Portland has been strictly business 🤓 It’s probably one of our least favorite campgrounds, but it really hasn’t mattered because we came here to do one thing really well:⠀
Work Hard. ⠀
And yesterday, we had a breakthrough. What’s funny is that it didn’t happen due to grinding so hard or bringing on 10 new clients. It happened because we decided earlier this year to hold ourselves and our business accountable. ⠀
We had a breakthrough because sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard you work if you aren’t working SMART. ⠀
It felt reeeeaaaally good to work smart this week and refocus at the halfway point of the year 🙌🏼⠀
Who else knows the feeling of how good clarity feels in your business?!⠀
Maybe we should start going to less appealing RV parks…⠀
Siiiiiike! C’mon, look at these incredible places we’ve gotten to call home 😍🚍⠀
Ps - can you guess which one is our RV park in Portland? 😬
Resting up for a busy weekend. Tomorrow we hit the road once again. This time we’re heading to Michigan for another competition! What can we say we’re disc dog addicts 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♂️
Camping on the Kazakh steppe is such a joy, just wheel the bike a km or so off the road and endless space, peace and quiet will be yours. .
I'm so happy to be back on the bike, that I wrote a rather gushing blog post about it. Link in bio.
DAY FOUR 🇨🇷
We had our first fruit stand/ pipas friá experience of this trip. Here’s the thing, you see them whack that fresh hole in the coconut and see the plain straw go in, so I’m never prepared for that pure sweet goodness that comes up from the straw! Harper is my fruit lover, so she had so much fun tasting all the new fruits she had never even heard of. Miguel, the son of the owner was trying to convince me to fall for him, since my husband was in a different country and all. He went to great lengths to share how successful he was and that he soon would own his father’s business. 🤦♀️ We explored around downtown San Jose, had lunch there and visited the contemporary art museum and the library. Harper left a few broken hearts in her wake, too. Redheads get a lot of attention in CR, as it turns out. 😳 So many great memories and funny stories to share! One 12ish year old kid couldn’t stop staring. If there was a wall or a pole in front of him, he would have walked straight into it because he couldn’t take his eyes off of Harper. She was totally oblivious. I wonder how much longer I have before she welcomes such blatant gawking?! 😬 #ohharper

It’s gangster to live in 190 square feet, be covered in tattoos and lawn chair lines, and feed your kids cake at 9pm on a weeknight. At least that’s what I’ll tell my great grandchildren. The only rules that apply are the ones you choose for your life.
We got a sneak peek into this weekend’s #bottlerock
festival in Napa Valley, California 🍷❤️
Our dirty lil van surrounded by the beauty of a rainforest. We cant get enough of the green! 🌴🌿

Current home is pretty prime.
Fun and fascinating evening while on the road for work. Tonight in Albuquerque I went to K-Mart and then I used a drive thru bank teller. Both things I didn’t know existed anymore. After that I went to dinner with a union member from Zimbabwe. She told me with a body like mine I’d be a goddess in Africa. I told her I know that because I’m already a goddess in Albuquerque and in Oakland. Now I’m hanging in the hotel lobby watching the Warriors game with my girls Vanessa and Diana the hotels front desk clerks. I travel a lot for work and I often miss home. Women like them make it more comfortable because every few weeks when I see them it’s like getting to spend time and catch up w my girls. #albuquerque #newmexico #travel #lifeontheroad #curlyhair #vegan #diabetes #arthritis #naturalhair #thoughtsbecomethings #fibromyalgia
I need to live at the beach 🦀
Hell yeah, the original 1971 poster for Zappa’s bizarro rockumentary. Touring can make you crazy ladies and gentlemen.
Clifford got new headlights!! Getting ready for the road in a couple weeks. #lookinggood
Swipe to see that nice NEW, smooth, shiny wall behind me!
