Healthy habits while we travel and thrive. This is what it helping me on my journey :)

"Let the food be the medicine" (especially if you live on the road....)
 How to combine these in a good way that we're supporting our bodies and helping us through changes?
We live in an era where traveling has become so popular, and its now a way of living. Digital nomads, nomads entrepreneurs, seasonals, etc.

Although I think yes, is an amazing life we have the opportunity to live; for our bodies it is a great challenge to keep a good pace as we still want to function at our 100%. We need to produce, to see places, and to keep up with that activity we do that gives us money.

For me is being a great learning during the last years, but specially this last year as I've been moving too much. At a point I noticed every time I moved, I was feeling lost and I didn't know what to do. The result is that felt super tired, drained, foggy and depressed.

Once I took responsibility of the pros and the cons about the life I choose to live; I asked my self how I could better support my body in all conditions, specially when moving a lot in timezones and cultures.

I came up with the following routines. The most important learning on this, is to keep in mind that when you feeling the most down, the more you have to keep with the routines to keep you grounded again ;)
Here are some of the main I stick to :

1) Stay hydrated, and drink even more water before and after the days of moving. Bring a reusable bottle with you at all time. Sometimes I like to pour in my water chlorofile or the "vital remedy" I was prescribed of the "trinity essences"; but just water is perfectly fine.

2) Minifast of half fast. I started to do this in a natural way, so at least I wait 12 hours to eat my breakfast everyday. I found this specially beneficial and detoxifying to the body. As a result my brain is clear, focused and I can cope better through all the changes I'm experiencing.

3) Green smoothie or celery juice first thing in the morning in an empty stomach. If I have to choose, my go to is the celery one, so 16oz everyday. As you perhaps heard, this practice is now a major trend started by the awesome @medicalmedium. He is all about promoting the concept of "let the food by the medicine".
Celery juice has been proven to be "the" healing tonic. It helps with inflammation, balances the PH of the body, copes with autoimmune diseases, cures allergies, etc.
If you want to know more about this, go to this link here.
If you don't have a blender available where you live, you can invest on buying a travel one that costs very cheap and you can charge them with a usb plug.
if you still don't have access to this, invest on buying some green superfoods. Some of the easiest ones are Spirulina or Chlorella. Just drink it with some juice, or plain water in the morning.

4) Meditate every morning, or at least 3-4 times per week. This practice I found to be grounding for my body and doing body scan to feel every part of it really takes me home, connects me again and releases all the anxiety. This is a way to tell your body to remind that wherever you are, you can root again in you. Home is within you. I like to use the Calm app, or you can do it by yourself while you listen to some 432hz playlist to heal and root more with the earth. You can also leave this music to play in the background on your day to day. Its very healing.

5) Stay away of processed sugar or coffee. If you can drink matcha to get some healthy energy during your day. Matcha is a great Japanese tea with tons of antioxidants. The greatest thing is that the tea enters your bloodstream in crescendo and it fades away in the same way, so you don’t get that nasty rebound effect you get from coffee.

These are just a few I found for myself. If you have more and simple ones, share with me! I’d love to know more about yours and how they helped you on your journey.

Hi there! I'm back with retreats in Sri Lanka/ August 2019!

Hello there! How are you all?!
I know it's been longtime I wasn't coming here to speak about my adventures or giving any updates...

A lot happened during 2018, and I decided to close my yoga retreat house and vegan shop in San Sebastian. Not just that, I also left my house, and sold everything I owned (all, but my longboard, hehe).
As you imagined, this was very intense process, but the Universe was urging me to close this amazing cycle in Sanseb as it wasn't healthy or sustainable anymore for me.

Long story short; after a month spent in India doing a yoga training, I ended up between Sri Lanka & Bali, just connecting with people, accommodations, and digital nomads to find some new inspiration.

After a few months roaming; I'm very pleased to tell you that I will be partnering with the hotel Memo Wellness Sri Lanka to provide a solid wellness program, prepare the hotel to host retreats, and in general to offer the final client a round-up experience combining surf, yoga, healthy food, and other cool activities.

To start with this, I'm gonna be co-hosting with Lana of "Yoga travel for life", two dates of 8 days/ 7 nights retreats in Memo this August 2019. So, if you were looking to come to Sri Lanka for a vacation with someone you know, here I will be during the whole year!

Check below, all the info of the retreat, the hotel, location, etc.
If you have any question, just send me an email to:
I will be glad to help you plan your trip.

Oh, and if you've never been in a retreat with me, just go to the following links to see our recaps in Bali, Nicaragua and Mexico. I took all the pictures there, and this time I will be taking some snaps too; apart from hosting you all;)

Hope to see you soon,
Ale Romo xoxoxoxo


8 days retreat “Surf & Yoga ”in Sri Lanka. From 09.08 -16.08.2019 and 16.08.-23.08.2019

From Unawatuna to Mirissa to Tangalle, the south coast;  Sri Lanka is one of the best kept secrets in Asia, though that secret is quickly being revealed as more and more people flock to Ceylon for its tropical beaches, incredible wildlife, rich culture and ancient heritage landmarks.

The beaches here are generally far less touristy than those of the busier west coast; it's not unusual to find yourself alone on long, dreamy stretches of palm-fringed sand, especially east of Matara.
Some of the prettiest bays in the country are found on this stretch of coast and the region is regarded as truly Sri Lankan and a bastion of Sinhala patriotism.

The region’s varied attractions make it one of Sri Lanka’s most rewarding areas to visit. Gateway to the south – and one of its highlights – is the atmospheric old port of Galle, Sri Lanka’s best-preserved colonial town; while beyond Galle stretch a string of picture-perfect beaches including Unawatuna, Weligama, Mirissa and Tangalle.


The hotel is located by the beach, crossing the street to Kabalana beach, 145km from Colombo, 20 minutes from the historical city of Galle, 20 minutes to Weligama beach, 30 minutes from Mirissa beach and 10 minutes from Ahangama. Kabalana beach is a long stretch of fine sand perfect for running, surfing and other activities situated just down the road from Ahangama. This sandy bottom break is great for beginners and spending long days enjoying the tropical views and the best rated sunsets in Sri Lanka.
