It is a well-known fact that the Dead Sea mud is rich in nutrients and minerals and is therefore excellent for your skin. However, this doesn’t make the prospect of slathering yourself in it any more appealing. When I stayed in Jordan on the shores of the Dead Sea I was able to try the real deal and shove my hand in a bucket full of thick, clay-like, gloopy, grey mud. After a moment of thinking how completely gross this was I set to work covering my whole body in it. Turns out, it’s actually pretty fun!
After waiting roughly 15 minutes for the mud to dry I was getting rather toasty in the sun and so it was time to go and wash it off. Easier said than done. When you’re in water that makes it impossible for you to sink, think how difficult it is for you to get your shoulders under. With some help from my dearest mother we managed to master the technique of dipping down for a second whilst she frantically washed the mud off of my back before I bobbed back up again. After this experience my skin felt silky smooth and I was rather upset at the thought that that would be the first and last time I nourished my skin in such a way.
Interesting shots! Sounds like fun as long as you have a partner for the wash off lol

Highlights from Russia so far:
1. Told everyone in Tula I was coming to visit them on Saturday…Jeni and I BOTH thought it was Friday (freaking time change), so I managed to accidentally ditch the Russian friends I haven’t seen since 2007, while having a nice gulyat’ (stroll) in Moscow.
2. Saw Faberzhe egg special collection at the Pushkin Museum. AWESOME. I want one for my birthday.
3. Asked someone to take my picture on Red Square and it turned out to be Alice Cooper’s band. They got flirty with us and asked us to come to their concert. Alice Cooper is a bit scary, so we’ll have to see about that.
Meeting Alice Kooper’s band randomly in Red Square? Now how cool is that?

Picture yourself on the beach soaking up the sun, beer in hand, listening to good tunes. Now, imagine doing that at a live show and you have Hangout Music Festival, the best festival around! This past year was the fourth year Gulf Shores, Alabama hosted Hangout and my third year (and counting) attending. I love everything about Hangout: the sun, the sand, bikinis, the food, the beer, and of course, grooving to good tunes… http://vagabondvirginia.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/best-of-hangout-music-festival-3-years-and-counting/
Wow, looks like a great party!

I got moved from Playa to the most perfect place to let out my inner hippy … Tulum! The beach in Tulum is so perfect. Officially it is the 3rd most beautiful beach in the World. I don’t know who said that but I agree that it is very nice. I was chuffed to bits to be moving to there. Mark my words Tulum is on the brink, it will be THE place to be next year. The move happened right after The Trip to Tulum That Never Was. The powers that be decided that I must see Tulum in all its glory dammit!
I had visions of long summer days chilling on the beach, writing feverishly, wearing all my bracelets and generally pretending to be Bob Geldof. Did that happen? Nope. A month later … I was on the move again. Good thing too really. I wasn’t hippy enough for Tulum. The shoeless, orgy in a cenote with a tiger, “do you mind helping me with my magic brownie oven?” hippies of Tulum could no longer smell the backpacker in me. definitely need to leave these 5 star all-inclusive palaces and get back to the communal showers of hostel life soon. Not quite yet though…
Been doing mainly this
Great shot! Always hard to write feverishly on world class beaches, damn! is right lol

The Costa Dorada (Golden Coast) in Sitges has seven coves separated by curved, rocky spits, and soft gold sand that sparkles with flashes of fairy dust (or pyrite if you are not as romantic as I am). Tinkerbell surely blessed this beach. It took me five minutes to get any more than ankle-deep in the sea, so mesmerized was I by the shining flecks of light. The camera cannot capture the magic – you need to see this with your eyes.
Nice shot, it must be dazzling!

The next day we headed to explore the beautiful coast town of Lindos. When you think of a traditional Greek town, you picture Lindos. The white buildings, the clear water, the sandy beaches and the steep hills. It’s all there. We wandered through the streets when we first arrived, and I instantly fell in love with the cobblestone paths. No cars can drive through the roads, so everyone walks or rides donkeys. Yes, donkeys. We happened to see a man leading some donkeys through the paths. It surprised me how well the donkeys could balance on the steep paths, because I almost fell a few times.There is absolutely no way I would have trusted a donkey. We then headed down to the beach and wandered as far as we could into the water without getting our shorts wet. We then headed to visit Seven Springs, this beautiful little area of the island where the springs are clean enough to drink. I also found my new favorite mode of transportation. Readers, meet my horse Jewel. She’s so pretty, just look at her. Awe. The ride back to the resort took us through these really beautiful mountain roads, and we even passed this amazing mansion that was supposed to Mussolini’s home. It was awesome.
Fantastic shot! You look like you are just really, really enjoying yourself, must have been a trip of a lifetime!

The background behind the feet is a beautiful day spent kayaking and drinking beer contemplating my next move in life laughing with my little brother, searching for alligators and sharks all the while sunning the toes in the Gulf of Mexico off of Marco Island, FL.
Good shot, kayaks are great!
This picture was taken in Beaver, Pa. The violists and bassists at Music Camp are all in flip-flops. Toes free playing is popular with the wind players as well as you can see at
Wow, almost a whole orchestra in flip flops, could this become a trend for concerts too?
