Circumnavigator Blog is moving

Aarhus 2012

Circumnavigator Blog, www.circumnavigatorblog.com, has moved to a wordpress.org site, or actually it is .dk for choosing Denmark as the host country for my travel society. The new address is www.CIRCUMNAVIGATOR.dk.

.DK for Denmark

But that doesn’t mean that I don’t want visitors and followers from other countries than Denmark. All my blog posts will still be in the best English I can do and after all travelling is a global interest – isn’t it?

The reason for choosing wordpress.org for CIRCUMNAVIGATOR

It was during my recent education in web administration that I chose to swift over to the wordpress.org solution for my travel blog. Mainly because it gives you so much more possibilities to design your own platform and society and then it is also good practice for what I learned during the education. So it was kind of making a new start and moving to a new land – which my adventurous spirit loves 😉

But as a told my teacher during the education, there are also some trade offs with choosing wordpress.org instead of wordpress.com. The wordpress.com is more like a social network and global community with the integrated Follow, Like and Reblog buttons, whereas in wordpress.org you are a land of your own and have to work harder to bring your community to life.

How to follow CIRCUMNAVIGATOR.dk

Of course I hope that my already followers and likers from wordpress.com will continue following and put the new URL http://www.CIRCUMNAVIGATOR.dk in their reading list. Please see photo below on how to do this.

Follow CIRCUMNAVIGATOR.dk on wordpress.com

Or you can also just press the RSS follow button  in the top right hand corner and sign up for receiving news in your mail box. If any of you readers have other ideas how to follow a blog or like a post on wordpress.org, then please let me know. Remember, I am still fairly new in this game.

Follow CIRCUMNAVIGATOR using RSS

I promise, I am still following all you guys – the writers and photographers, the food, culture and nature lovers and especially you fellow travellers. You all give me so much inspiration.

Creative visualization at yoga class taking me back to Tulum

Mexico 2012

20. December 2012: For updates on this post and more info about my visit in Mexico please visit: http://www.circumnavigator.dk/2012/10/10/creative-visualization-yoga-tulum/

I started in a new yoga class yesterday. At the end of the class the instructor took me through some creative visualization. One of the places he wanted to take me, was to a beach at sunrise. To feel the cooling sand beneath my bare feet. To see the colours of the rising sun from the bed of the sea. To feel the warming sun rays on my skin. To hear the soothing sound of the waves in my ears. To be a place where I feel good.

For me, this visualization was no problem. I just imagined myself back to my stay at Amansala Eco Chic Resort in Tulum, Mexico.

Earlier this year, after a long winter, I had a strong need to escape Denmark for a while, so I counted my money and decided to treat myself to an Easter stay at a Bikini Bootcamp.

           

           

The Bikini Bootcamp is an adventurous fitness and yoga holiday. Everyday of the stay there is a varied program with exercising, yoga classes, excursions to nature and culture, relaxation and pampering, evening entertainment and this all topped up with healthy food and very good vibes. Further to this is Amansala Resort based directly on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is like a small village of rustic yet comfortable cabañas.

    

Every morning just before 7 o’clock, the group of women and men (yes, men can also join and they don’t have to wear bikini) participating in the boot camp was woken up by the sound of a gong. After stretching the sleep out of the body, we walked at least for one hour on the beach. The first 15 minutes in silence to fully take in all the sensational feelings also described above – the sun, ocean, waves, sand.

After a while it was free to talk and the instructor came up to me. She said that she felt she had to talk with me. We had a very good talk about me, her and life in general. Just before our walk finished, I told her that it was my birthday today and she wasn’t surprised because she sensed a very strong energy around me.

I was very honoured and I will never forget the beautiful morning walks at sunrise, this one in particular, on the beach of Tulum.

Feel free to share with me places on our beautiful earth to experience a beautiful sunrise – let’s do some creative visualization together 🙂
