It’s officially the first day of summer, and that means vacation time. Vacations can be like chicken soup for the soul and they are great way to give your Leaf a work out. Remember, your health goes where you go. Here are four travel destinations we wanted to share and some of the amazing ways you can get in those health brownie points without having to start from scratch when you get home.
Paris, the city of love and lights, and one that needs no introduction. Paris has always been one of our favorite places to visit. Our preferred way of getting in some bonus health points in this glorious city is to ‘just be.’ With so much to see and do, it feeds the eyes, soul and of course, belly. Fresh baguettes, cheese, champagne, French people and…designer shopping! There’s no better place in the world for some ‘me’ time.
Horseshoe Bend, The Grand Canyon
Amazing places often lie on our doorstep. Horseshoe Bend in Arizona was named after the horseshoe-shaped Colorado River that bends through a deep canyon creating breathtaking vistas. Before we go on, just take a minute to take in that view……
Ok. Back to it.
You will need no extra motivation to go for a hike – the step count in your Leaf will practically increase by itself. And a long day of walking deserves one of the world’s most spectacular sunsets you’ll ever see.
Myanmar, also known as Burma, is a profoundly spiritual and captivating country that leaves an everlasting impression on anyone who visits. Bagan is an ancient city in central Myanmar just southwest of Mandalay. With meditation practices a part of everyday life for the local Burmese people, you’ll feel right at home tapping into your inner-self. Choose a meditation from your Leaf app or just freestyle it, and experience the true meaning of serenity.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We love Amsterdam’s brick buildings, open skyline, rich history, and relaxed, easy going attitude towards life. Van Gogh, tulips, Anne Frank’s House are just some of the things that come to mind. And of course, bikes!
Bikes are to Amsterdam like wine is to Bordeaux. The city loves bikes, and there are supposedly more bikes than people in Amsterdam. In fact, forget about keeping a lookout for cars — it’s the bikes that will run you over. Seeing Amsterdam and its surroundings from a bike is something we definitely encourage you to do. And your body and Leaf will love you for it.
