Diagnostics: Why getting a check up is important before travelling

There is nothing in this world that gives more satisfaction than seeing new places, eating new food, and experiencing foreign culture hundreds of miles away from your doorstep. However, setting your sails to new frontiers require intensive preparation. Other than wise and effective backpacking techniques, you also need to condition yourself should you engage in physically-challenging activities such as trekking, rock climbing, or even BASE jumping. Before you board a plane to your latest destination, make sure you check out these reasons first why should have yourself checked up before traveling.

To begin with, seeing a doctor before you embark on a journey can determine the strenuous activities you can or can’t do. For instance, in case you are going on a trek to the Himalayas, you must let a doctor conduct a physical for you to determine whether or not you are fit to scale those extreme heights and endure the climatic challenges the mountains impose. Other than getting physical exams, you can also use the opportunity to check the details of your health insurance in case of emergency. But in case you haven’t got insurance yet, seeking plans from insurance firms such as Aviva Health can put your mind at ease, letting you worry more about your exploits and less about your health.

Knowing the scope and limitations of your health insurance can give you better odds of being able to use them while on a trip in times of need. For instance, some healthcare providers can charge you huge amounts for their coverage, but do not allow you to use their full benefits and services if you’re outside the country. Meanwhile, other health insurance firms have flexible terms, wider coverage, and loaded with perks such as overseas usage so that subscribers can use them whenever they are out of the country. Before you go out on a trip make sure you check first the details of your insurance.

Going out for a holiday should be fun. However, health issues such as physical condition, health insurance coverage, and many more should be settled first before you catch your plane. Having these important details secured before you go out and take a hike can give you a safe and sound trip, wherever your wanderlust might bring you.

From the Wild Coast to the last African Kingdom

Arriving to the Wild Coast was a reality check. Pumpkin’s shoes (the motorcycle tires) were not adequate for the type of riding we were doing. We needed to change them as soon as possible to a set of tires built for off-road riding. This experience made us realize that we had no clue on how to ride two-up on dirt roads.  This could be a major problem as less than 10% of the roads in Africa are paved and we still had a long way to go up North.

From Coffee Bay we headed to charming Port Edwards and from there we moved to Durban. In Durban we were lucky to find a BMW dealer where we could get new tires for the motorcycle and get the rest of the riding gear we were missing. Durban is the third largest city in South Africa and has the greatest Indian population.  We took advantage of this opportunity to visit the biggest Hare Krishna temple in Africa and to eat delicious Indian curries. We also met several motorcyclists who gave us invaluable tips about the journey ahead of us.

As we discussed with different riders about our challenges and fears of riding in Africa we got advice and recommendations. The best advice was from John at Gear Up who told us that we needed to go visit the headquarters of Country Trax. Country Trax is a motorcycle paradise hidden in nature. Jan de Toit, the founder of Country Trax, has designed an amazing motorcycle course where he teaches to ride off-road. He has also built with his own hands beautiful wooden cabins where the riders can rest after the arduous training.  Jan is a legend in South Africa and among the adventure motorcycle community.

Since Country Trax was on the way north, we decided to stop by and at least see this amazing place that several motorcyclist recommended. John gave us some tips on how to ride off-road two up and then uploaded a track of mostly good dirt roads all the way to Jan’s place.  We headed out of Durban with new tires, new techniques and on a Sunny day. After a few days in a big city it was nice to be out in the wild.

The ride north was amazing with beautiful scenery and almost no traffic. For the fist time in our trip we were not sure where we would spend the night. We started becoming tired and hungry after several hours on the road with no good places to stop. Luckily, universe gifted us with a beautiful place. We spent the night at a hotel in the middle of nowhere with wonderful hot springs that helped relax and rejuvenate our bodies. It felt wonderful to be pampered. The best part of all was that we paid backpacker’s price! The following night we headed to Vryheid. After a couple hundred kilometers, screws started to get lose on the bike and the one holding the headlamp came off. Luckily Abdul, from MICA hardware, helped us find a solution at no cost.

Finally, after a few more days of riding, we made to Country Trax. To our surprise, when we arrived at the biker’s paradise, one of South Africa’s biggest television channels was filming a documentary with famous DJ Cleo and notorious radio host Angie.  When the film crew saw the bike they got very interested in our trip and asked us to be part of the program. The next day we were all geared up for our first television appearance in Africa! We were delighted with the celebrities’ simplicity, openness and fun attitude.

After shooting at the Country Trax facilities we headed to see the “Big Foot”. If you’ve ever walked barefoot through thick mud, and then seen how the impressions look after the mud has dried in the sun, you’ll appreciate how bizarre this rock formation is.

The Legendary Big Foot, almost as big as Salva

After the television crew left, Jan was available to talk to us.  We explained to him our travels and our limited off-road riding skill set. Although Salva had experience riding solo, Tarci had practically no motorcycle experience. After several talks we finally convinced Jan to do a personalized training for us. We spent the rest of the day going over the theory. The next 3 days were some of the most difficult riding we would do. The training involved waking up early and pretty much being on the bike all day. The course included all types of terrain that we would encounter during our Africa. We had to remove all three boxes from the motorcycle to be able to do all of the challenging drills.

This drill felt like being on a roller coaster: fun and scary!

After three days of intense training, several falls, several bruises, broken motorcycle parts and filthy gear we had completed the course. It was time to celebrate and enjoy the accomplishment of having completed the intermediary course. We felt that we were finally ready for Africa.

We left Country Trax with mixed feelings. We were happy to be back on the road heading to one of most beautiful places in South Africa, but also sad to leave Jan and his family behind. They took great care of us and felt like family.

After a long day of riding we reached the Blyde River Canyon.  Here we spent a few days exploring the area. The views, the roads and the people were just amazing as you can see from the pictures.

From South Africa we decided to visit the last Kingdom of Africa – Swaziland.

Our body has self-healing capacity

Dr. Jensen’s thoughts:

“The true responsibility for the handling of disease should be put directly in the hands of those who are dedicated to preventing diseases.

We spend a great deal of time and money patching and fixing up a broken-down physical vehicle that was designed to be self-repairing, self-rebuilding, self-rejuvenating. If we would only take care of it properly in the beginning, it wouldn’t develop so many problems.

Every disease takes time to develop. To eliminate a disease properly it is necessary that we spot it and take care of it in the beginning.

Our American cancer society says that I takes at least 20 years to develop many types of cancer. Where is the doctor who can diagnose and take care of these diseases in the beginning? People need prevention and early treatment, not such a late diagnosis that there is little that can be done.

A body that is chemically well-balanced will normalize itself. Every disease, every symptom, discharge, pain, indicates chemical imbalance in the body.

Eighty percent of all diseases treated in the U.S. are chronic. I am sure that half of these problems could be corrected by developing the proper nutritional balance in our eating program.”

Hole in the Wall South Africa Trip We Love

Yoga Therapy for Body, Mind & Soul

Several months ago if someone had asked me if I wanted to do a yoga teacher training I would first laugh thinking it was a nonsense idea and secondly reply: “I do not see myself as a regular teacher, imagine a yoga teacher!” I would also never imagine that I could “interrupt” my professional life for one year to travel the world and learn more about myself… Thinking about all areas of a person’s life like family, love, health, profession/education, I always felt that there was one area in which I was completely in control. The most straightforward and stable in my life, that all I had to do was give my best effort and things would happen as I wished… That was my professional/academic side. I say it “was” because in 2012, the year of my 30th birthday, I decided to shake my life completely, to surrender control and to focus entirely on my dreams and passions. It was the year I decided to train as a yoga teacher in Nepal.

Initially I thought that yoga would help me get in shape, improve my health and give me a peaceful feeling inside. That was what I usually felt in my weekly yoga classes in Mexico. I ended up finding through yoga what I was looking for during my six-month trip in Asia: a holistic healing method that helps balance body, mind and soul.

Yoga Benefits to the BODY

Tree Pose Yoga Bali Beach Trip We Love

Yoga benefits to the body are probably the most obvious ones. What was surprising to me, though, was that literally everyone had some sort of ailment during the yoga training. Our teacher Gaby mentioned that it is quite common for that to happen. One of the books I read after the training called Integral Healing, by Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, mentions exactly why this happens. When you are in an intense training, trying to grow mentally and spiritually, to increase your level of consciousness, it is common that the body does not follow the rhythm of the mind. So disease occurs.

To help prevent disease from occurring, shatkarma is an important part of yoga. You must first purify the whole body, and then you can practice self-discipline and self-control. You need to prepare yourself first so that you have the right quality of mind.  A sattvic diet is also important. I have always tried to have a somewhat healthy diet, but before starting my one-year holistic healing journey around the world my diet was very rajastic and even tamasic I would say. Before the yoga training I spent one month in Thailand doing an intense physical detoxification. It included a one-week fasting, abdominal massages and 14 colemas. I also stopped eating all kinds of animal meat, sugar and processed foods.  It was not an easy task; I was grumpy and hungry all the time in the beginning. On my fourth fasting day, however, I felt blissed. I think I never felt so good in my life. My mind was working very quickly, my body was light, my skin bright… It surprised me how cleaning the body also affects the mind. It also struck me that no medical doctors recommended me to stop ingesting acid-forming foods. They told me to avoid acidic fruits, for example, which are actually alkaline-forming food. Anyway, during that time I had great insights about why I had so many “belly” problems during my childhood and throughout life.

Constipation used to be a common ailment of mine. Through yoga I learned that asanas can also help you heal your body. I started practicing specific postures early in the morning and also Thai massage that help keep my colon healthy. In a more subtle level, asanas also help to move prana or energy throughout the body. When prana stagnates anywhere in the hody, it is the breeding ground for bacteria and other diseases to flourish. According to Hatha Yoga Pradipika and Hindu spiritual text Charak Samhita, there are five types of vayus or winds, which govern different functions. Prana emanates from the heart and controls breathing, especially the inhalation. Samana, centered in the diaphragm, drives digestion. Apana relates to elimination of bodily wastes. Udana moves upward from the throat and governs speech. Vyana is tied to the circulatory system and transports vitality and nourishment to all of the cells.

Besides choosing asanas that will help move energy where you need it the most, it is also beneficial to choose postures according to your dosha. According to Dr. David Frawley, Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science, is one of the most remarkable holistic medical systems in the world. It includes methods of self-healing from diets, herbs, exercise, lifestyle routines and yogic practices. Ayurveda shows us how to attain optimal health not for superficial enjoyment but to provide a wholesome foundation and sufficient energy to embrace self-realization. Conserving energy in the physical body is a very important aspect of health, which has been ignored by most of the healing sciences.

During my 6 weeks yoga training we did a SWAN meditation to better observe our own strengths, weaknesses, ambitions and needs in all levels (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual). From this meditation I developed my sadhana or spiritual practice.  After our trip in Asia, we planned to travel to Africa by motorcycle, from Cape Town to Cairo. In order to be ready for it, I had to strengthen my back, keep my digestive system healthy and calm my mind. I started practicing my sadhana 2 months before the motorcycle trip and I was impressed to see the difference it made in my body! It is common for new motorcycle riders to have back pains, sore buttocks and stiff backs. Surprisingly, I was in perfect shape. The best thing is that I can take my daily practice anywhere I go. All I need is a space to roll out my mat.

Yoga Benefits to the MIND

Happy Yogi Nepal

In addition to physical benefits, the goal of yoga is to control the mind. I will never forget what I felt the first time I practiced mantra yoga during a kiirtan session. As you chant, you empty your mind, fill your heart with love and your cells with an uplifting vibration. New and old emotions are aroused and let go in a deep experience. It was amazing how all the mantras that we practiced during our training were absorbed by my mind and I catch myself chanting them inside very often, especially when riding on the motorcycle. I remember that shortly after leaving Nepal I was in a 5-star hotel in Bali by the beach and I felt hollow. It was as if that new space had no energy, nothing, as if it were empty. That was when I realized the powerful energy of the simple house we had been living for the last months. Creating my own altar, with all the elements that were meaningful to me, became fundamental.

According to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, “yoga is the cessation of the fluctuation of the mind”. To me, one of the best ways to achieve this is through pranayama exercises. By regulating the breath it is possible to regulate the prana in the body. I use ujjayi breathing during parts of my sadhana to improve concentration, calm my mind and surrender into the postures.

After an intense yoga training, being surrounded by people with a similar vibration, peace of mind and lightness, it was a little tricky to maintain the peace created in my practice, specially dealing with people who are not very spiritual. I was disappointed at myself in two situations in which people treated me poorly and with an aggressive energy and instead of keeping myself centered, I succumbed to their vibration. I wish I were able, in these moments, to practice pratyahara, to withdraw my senses, to just observe my emotions and let them go. In other occasions I have managed to place my hand in my belly, in front of manipura chakra, to help calm down my anger and do not let my ego jump out. One of the books I read after the training is called “Los Cuatro Acuerdos” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It has a beautiful message about how you should not judge others, make assumptions or suppositions and you should always give your best effort. When I let myself drown into their energies I was judging their behavior and making assumptions about their intention. Instead of doing that, I could have calmly tried to understand what caused their reaction, sent love and light to their anahata chakras and solve any misunderstandings in a collaborative manner.

These episodes made me think of the 5 kleshas, or primal causes of suffering, which are ignorance, ego, desire, repulsion and clinging to life. It also made me think about how I had to open myself more to others, to see us as one and to find more understanding through love. This was one of the reasons I decided to do a workshop called “Embodying this Love” by Michael King. The purpose of the course was to close the gap between who you were, which is closer to your essence, and who you have become. The gap closes naturally once we stop doing the things that once got us there. We need to loose resistance. Quiet the mind. Approach yourself as a curious observer while you meditate. That reminded me of Jnana yoga. Self-inquiry, questioning, puts you in “open mode”. When your mind is centered you are the boss. You need to ask yourself: Are these thoughts coming from my heart? When I think this thought how does my body feel? Emotions serve as an indicator of the values of the thoughts you are thinking. Fear holds on. Love lets go. You should see your emotions as energy in motion and just let it go. Closing the gap is a deep process of surrender.

You don’t get what you want. You get what you are being. According to Michael, when you want something you become empty so you will try to get more of that. You must feel as if you already have it. Through focus you can change your state of being without necessarily changing the outside world. The Gita also covers the concept of shraddha, which means faith or “that which is placed in the heart”. It is the set of values, principles that one holds deeply within. As we think, so we become. “We live in what we love”.

Yoga Benefits to the SOUL

South Africa Wild Coast Trip We Love

This brings us to the soul. Besides improving body and mind, yoga benefits our spiritual being. According to David Frawley, “yoga is first and foremost a science of self-realization. Its concern is spiritual practice, mainly through meditation, to take us beyond the sorrow and ignorance of the world. It teaches us to move from our outer bodily and ego-bound identity to our immortal Self that dwells within the heart. Yoga provides the key to all spiritual development, which in Vedic sense is gaining knowledge of our true nature beyond time, space, death and suffering.”

Yoga helps to bring us closer to our true purpose in life, our swadharma. When we are following our own path we become more connected to the universe and things flow, as we desire. Looking back, it is pretty amazing to me how my partner and I decided to give ourselves a break from the corporate world at the same time and how our journey is unfolding. Without consciously planning it, we started taking care of our bodies in Asia (through detox, fasting and diet), then of our minds (by studying topics that interest us and learning more about yoga) and now traveling across Africa we have the opportunity to answer our soul calling to do good to others. To contribute to a world where children DO have a future, in which preventable disease are PREVENTED and healthcare REACHES EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE.

When we arrived in Cape Town, where we started our motorcycle trip to Cairo, a motorcyclist who we met through an online Forum picked us up at the airport. He hosted us at his farm, cooked for us, showed us around, and also helped us to get mentally ready for the journey. We have been meeting angels like him on our way and it reminds me of karma yoga. We put our intention out to serve and we are being served. Selfless giving is beautiful and fulfilling.

Karma, the law of moral causation, seems flawless, and the best way to burn samskaras is through our yamas and niyamas. According to Vedic philosophy, there are four main desires within every person: perform dharma (social, ethical), artha (acquirement of wealth), kama (gratification of sensual desire) and moksha (liberation). These are the four paths to a happy life. I feel that throughout my life I have dedicated substantial time to the first three but I still have a lot of work to be done to achieve liberation. Being in places and seeing people who have so little makes it easier for us to dethatch from material possessions. This was the first time in my life that I had the courage to cut my hair short, to share my life 24 hours a day with someone, to live for several months with one pair of shoes and a couple of clothes, to share bathrooms, to accept so many favors from strangers, to “publish” my personal life online and to be truly open and grateful for everything that comes my way.

The thread through Krishna’s teaching, the essence of the Bhagavad Gita, can be given in one word: renunciation. One can become free by giving up not material things but selfish attachments to material things and to people. One should work free from selfish motives. This purifies the mind, unifies consciousness and rids one of ego. This path of selfless action will eventually lead into self-realization. “Do your work with the welfare of others always in mind…those who take wisdom as their highest goal, whose faith is deep and whose senses are trained, attain wisdom quickly and enter into perfect peace.” The goal of all work is spiritual wisdom.

 

Inner awakening can only occur when there is complete stillness and steadiness in body, mind and soul. Yoga creates balance in the physical body, mind and energy, enabling sushumna nadi, our central force responsible for the evolution of human consciousness, to awaken. Hatha Yoga helps one see that Body, Mind and Soul are not three but one.

Our one-year journey is shortly coming to an end. I am not sure what the future reserves to us. I do believe, however, in what the book Course in Miracles teaches; that “life is self organizing and self correcting”. Life knows all the details of what we want so we just need to think about general emotions, desires, and if they are aligned with our swadharmas, the universe will find a way of bringing it to us. Regardless of all the changes that may come my way in the upcoming months, I will keep yoga as part of my lifestyle and I hope to be able to share with others all the love, peace and kindness that I cultivate. Om tat sat.

LSD Trip in the Wild Coast, South Africa

Yesterday, we rode over 450 kilometers mostly under the rain. In the last 5 hours of the ride we got fog, enough rain to get us wet to the bone and the temperature dropped down enough to make us shiver in cold. The roads have gotten much worse which required full concentration at all times. The paved roads had potholes the size of small craters and the dirt roads had mud, gravel and big ruts. I will not list the variety of animals on the road…

Yesterday’s ride has been the hardest one in the last 3,000+ Km that we have ridden in South Africa. We got really scared when a black goat jumped in front of us on the highway. I’m not sure who was more scared, the goat or us, but luckily he jumped back where he came from just seconds before we hit it.  In the last hour of the ride it was dark; the road became very technical with a mix of sections of gravel, mud, animals, rain and fog, with steep up hills and down hill. We did not expect or plan for the ride to be so long, difficult and exhausting.

As I write, we are in the Wild Coast of South Africa. Our lodge is south of Coffee Bay on top of a beautiful hill overseeing the Indian Ocean. The waves are breaking loudly against the cliff and the full moon rays are struggling to come through the dark clouds.  Only the thunders allow us to get glimpses of our magical surroundings.

The Wild Coast is one of South Africa’s most remote stretches of shoreline. The scenery is surreal, the energy around us is paradisiac and after a delicious meal this is the perfect time to reflect on the experiences we have had in the last few weeks. As we look back we realize that the past few days have been a Look, See and Decide (LSD) trip.  We will let the pictures narrate the trip:

Riding_with_Johan

When we arrived in South Africa we did not know what to expect. We were excited to be arriving into this wild continent and at the same time scared from all the stories we hear on the news. On our arrival Johan in the picture above picked us up at the airport and for the next few days he was our guardian angel. He and his family looked after us, provided guidance on our trip and helped us get organized. The most amazing thing was that we have never met Johan before our arrival and we connected with him through a motorcycle forum.

garden_road_south_africa

We rode our first 1,000 Kilometers in the area around Cape Town and we could have easily ridden much more as you can appreciate from the picture above.

Cape_Agulhas_South_Africa_T_n_S

After a week in the Cape Town area we headed to Cape Agulhas the southernmost point in Africa where the Indian Ocean meets with the Atlantic Ocean. A sense of happiness and achievement surrounded us.  Finally we felt that we were in Africa in a once in a lifetime adventure.

cango_caves_oudtshoornFrom Cape Agulhas we headed inland to Oudtshoorn to visit the Cango Caves. We did the adventure tour that required climbing and sliding across narrow holes under the grounds. The smallest passage was just under 30cm high at the exit! The cave system of tunnels and chambers was impressive to say the least and the picture above does not do justice to the beauty of the caves.

Plettenberg_Bay_Diamond

 

From Oudtshoorn we went to Plettenberg Bay. We stayed in Brian’s house (identity hidden) shown in the picture above. Brian is an ex-diamond smuggler. He made a small fortune in the 80’s going to Namibia and buying diamonds that were stolen from the diamond beaches.  Brian told us that in Namibia there are beaches that are full of diamonds and you can pick them up from the sand. These are not large diamonds but they are big enough for wedding rings. Anyway, Brian was a very interesting character with a lot of great stories.

view_head_knysna

While in Plettenberg Bay, we went to Knysna for the day. The views of “the Heads” where spectacular and the food amazing. It was a good day!

Addo_Elephant_Park

From Plettenberg Bay we headed to Addo to see the Elephant National Park. It is one of the few places if not the only place in South Africa where you get to see so many elephants together in one place. The elephants provided a lot of food for thought. It reminded us of the Indian God Ganesh and our time in Asia. It reminded us that we are in Africa. It reminded us that this animals are being killed for their ivory tusks.

John_Orange_Elephant_Backpackers

In Addo we were guest of John the owner of Orange Elephant Backpackers. John is a motorcyclist who read about our trip and wanted to support us along our way north. It was great to meet him and we were very thankful for his help!

road_hole_in_the_wall_wild_coast

From Addo we came to Coffee Bay. Yesterday due to the rain our camera drowned and we were not able to take pictures. The picture above and below are from today’s ride to Hole In The Wall a few kilometers south of Coffee Bay.

wild_coast_south_africa_beach

The beaches in the Wild Coast are just unbelievable!  It was nice to see the sun after a long day riding under the rain.

white_clays_coffee_bay

The picture above is where we are currently writing this blog post. On the right is our small hut overseeing the Indian Ocean. As we Look back we realize that we have Seen much more than we expected and it will be challenging to Decide what to do after the Trip.  Maybe it is just better not to think about it and do what my father told Tarci: “Go with the flow and just keep both wheels in balance”.

48 Hours to Africa!

Imagine being in a gorgeous tropical island in the middle of the ocean and in 48 hours being dropped in one of most dangerous and most beautiful places in the planet – Africa!

We have spent the last 6 weeks in Bali meditating about life, redesigning this blog, practicing Yoga and embracing our new lifestyle. We have also been planning our next leg in our holistic healing journey – Africa!

Africa Route

The plan for Africa is to travel by motorcycle across the continent. We will start in Cape Town and from there we will travel north. As of today we are not completely sure how far north we will be able to reach, however, if the political situations, weather and safety permit we plan to reach Egypt.

Over the last 6 months our focus has been to find our internal Self. We visited spiritual places, we embraced spiritual practices and have traveled within ourselves through meditation and other techniques such as Yoga Nidra. Now we plan to travel outside ourselves and to help other people.

Every year in Africa over 200 million people get infected with malaria and of those more than 500,000 people die. The shocking part about these statistics is that malaria is a preventable and curable disease. The saddest part is that over 90% of the of the people who die are children below the age of 5. Malaria is the number 1 killer in Africa and we want to do something about it.

Through this blog, social media and traditional media we plan to increase awareness about this deadly diseases and motivate people like you to take action to help eradicate this disease. We have started to develop online tools to facilitate knowledge sharing about new strategies to fight this diseases.  If you are interested to learn more about our initiative or are interested in supporting us please leave a comment below or send us a message.

Today we are starting to pack. Last night was difficult to sleep. Maybe because we don’t know what to expect upon arrival in Africa. Traveling by motorcycle is not easy and is not the safest method of transportation. So we are in this emotional roller coaster of excitement and doubt – are we really doing this???
