Travel Tuesday : Wanderlust Festival

So almost a month ago I attended the first ever Wanderlust in Colorado. I have been trying to digest my experience since then.

You might wonder: just what is Wanderlust?

Here is how their site describes it:
“Wanderlust is a one-of-a-kind festival bringing together the world’s leading yoga teachers, top musical acts and DJs, renowned speakers, top chefs and winemakers, and much, much more — all in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty. We’re talking about fun in the sun and dancing under the stars. Hiking on peaceful trails and gettin’ your down dog on at the top of the mountain. Sipping poolside cocktails with your friends, and then enjoying a tasty farm-to-table dinner with views of the surrounding mountain peaks. Early morning meditations and all-night chakra spinning musical performances – it’s an all-out ecstatic celebration in the most awe-inspiring locations in the world.”

Some of that happened. Some of it didn’t.

I definitely got my meditation on. And rode the ski lift as much as I could. But as you can see from my one of these is not like the other picture above, I also did a lot of eating of bad food. And I drank too much wine. It was kind of like being at home in that regard.

It was the first year in Colorado so they weren’t able to do the food coop. And it rained. And I missed my kiddos.
But I slept a ton, wandered around (alone!) in my hotel room, and breathed in lots of fresh oxygen (thank you lovely tall trees.)

So should you go to Wanderlust?
Are you into yoga? Can you hold a tree pose? Do you like dancing to hippy electronic music? Are you into wine?
If you answered yes to these questions, then go.
But maybe go to the one in Vermont.

  1. I do love yoga and wine, although I haven’t really done them together before. Hmm…
