Daydreaming of saunas and plunge pools today.
On my recent stay at @pousadadascavernas I had to hang back while the rest of the group went trekking through the jungle thanks to some kind of tendinitis in my foot.
Their team took incredible care of me, set me up with an open air massage, consulted a doctor by phone and heated up their sauna. The kind owner even brought some of his home extracted eucalyptus oil to pour over the hot stones. A cool water lake right in front of the sauna served as the cold plunge.
I grew up in Germany where saunas are part of life. My grandparents and parents had a sauna in the basement and we often went to fitness centers to meet with friends, play sports and hang in the sauna.
Saunas are touted to help with easing pain thanks to increased circulation, reducing stress levels, improving cardiovascular health, help with some skin problems, asthma, and may even lower the risk of Alzheimer’s.

Midday Mind Reset || @pablo_durana and @dajagr took a 2 minute dip in the snow melt below our house. I think this will become a regular thing. Who’s in?
Apparently these plunges not only toughen the spirit but may also help boost the immune system, help with anxiety, depression and reduce muscle soreness.

@pablo_durana is leaving for Antarctica on Saturday. Here’s how we’re prepping.
1. Pedicure. Apparently during Pablo’s last expedition to Antarctica, Conrad Anker dropped this juicy piece of wisdom, saying a pre-expedition pedicure is a must for foot health, smell and I’m guessing sass? Pretty sure that last piece is critical . @conrad_anker this is what you had in mind right?
Brought some beers for the nail technicians. They deserved it after dealing with Pablo’s never before been pedicured feet
2. Bacon. Found some humanely raised bacon and now I’m trying to fatten up Pablo. I feel like an old Italian mother 😅
3. Training. Some people take their dogs out for a run. I grabbed my bike and took Pablo out for a run. Ok… more like Pablo took me out for a bike ride… but whatever.
4. Spacesuit. @thenorthface’s latest and greatest gear. That hood 🤣 so cozy.

When our neighbors shared their dream of decorating their 40-50 foot tree, @pablo_durana jumped right into his climbing gear and made it happen.
7.5 hours later, it’s starting to look pretty festive on our street! The holidays approach ✨
Ordering a few more strings of lights for the base.

Some of my favorite moments prepping for the celebrations.
Eventually dirt bags shined up “like a new penny” 😅
In an effort to "whiten" the largely black and mixed race or mulatto population in Brazil and attract a larger labor force after slaverly was finally abolished, the Brazilian Government called on immigrants to help their nation.
According to our Brazilian contacts, they focused on Italians, Jews, and Japanese. Later, in an aggressive act of attempted assimilation and fear out of WWII, immigrants were banned to speak any other language aside from Portuguese and books were burned. ⠀
On my recent trip to Brazil I got to pick tea alongside Elizabete Ume Shimada who's father emigrated in the 1930s. She is now over 90 years old. ⠀
Due to our language barrier I didn't understand most of her story, but learned a lot about her via this fascinating article on https://buff.ly/3kzh4wO ⠀
Her father first got in trouble when he worked on a coffee plantation because instead of picking the fruit, he picked the leaves as he was used to for tea. He later escaped the farm due to poor working conditions. ⠀
After that he worked in many trades, growing and processing sugarcane, coffee and eventually growing tea.⠀
Brazil was once a big producer of tea in the international market but when the local currency reached the same price of the American Dollar, exporting became unfeasible and, one by one, all factories closed except one. Tea plantation were decimated and replaced with banana and Edible Palm trees, and other crops.⠀
Ume, refused to take the advice of destroying the tea.⠀
I really enjoyed learning how to harvest the tea leaves. I was excited to dry the leaves and bring them home. But after 10 days of very humid adventures, the leaves browned and molded. Glad I picked up some of her more expertly dried and packaged tea. @rachelruted 🙈
Thanks for the photos @properfilms⠀
Still beaming from last weekend’s celebration of love with @alexhonnold & @sannimccandless

I’m just so damn happy for you two; the life and family you are building and the love you have found in and for each other. And I love that “play” was a core focus in your vows. Nice!
P.S. I got to spend time with both your moms and honorary moms. Well, they are just the best. No wonder you turned out alright.
P.S.S. @tommycaldwell that suit is banging… but imagine this picture with the red jacket 🔥✨
Thanks for capturing these beautiful photos @photocait and encouraging us to simply enjoy the moment. Yea… you’re right, these photos are better than what I would’ve gotten on my phone 😉

The bus almost left without me as I stood there mesmerized by this fern. ⠀
Eventually a lively group of wild parakeets break my daze and I hobble toward the gate. Popping that ibuprofen and wrapping that foot. "heal fast" I think as I glare at my foot. ⠀

We’ve been teased so many times, thinking live events were a go again. Corporate groups have been the most hesitant to return but in November it’s official. I’ll be hosting a group of 40 in Tahoe. Feels so good to be back at it again.

Harvesting from the garden makes me think about how I am also harvesting on all the hard work that I have put into building my own company, my relationships, the love I have put out into the community…. And myself.
“The fruits of labor” they call it.
Well this harvest has been as sweet as ever literally and figuratively
