Enjoying Wild Sport in Thailand

Enjoying Wild Sport in Thailand 1280 959 Galia Brener

When I first found out about my trip to Thailand, I was joyous beyond belief. For I have never been to Thailand before, and it was my heart’s desire to go there for many years already! Lady Luck was on my side and she was being very gracious to me. I was invited to be in a television show called “Thailand for Ladies”, airing on RheinmainTV, which was created by the travel agency Vivamundo Reisen and the TAT to promote tourism in Thailand for women.

I have been to many places around the world, lived on four different continents, but still missing on my list was the City of Angels, known as Bangkok. The locals say that this mysterious city is where the immortal divinity dwells, and the thought of walking the same ground as the immortal souls made me feel like I’m going on a secret mission. We boarded the beautifully designed pink and purple Thai Airways plane and set off on our adventure!

There were many fascinating cultural things on our program, but what really got me in the princess warrior spirit, was our amazing sport program: Muay Thai, yoga and a bike tour in the jungle!

Before I left Frankfurt, I geared up on all my active wear at TK Maxx, because they have a huge selection of everything one needs for the perfect workout. I love getting my sporty stuff there because not only is it functional, but also stylish and everything is always up to 60% cheaper than the RRP. For example, the leggings that I bought there for my Thailand yoga class has pieces of mesh running down the legs that show my skin in all the right places. We all want active wear that actually looks good while we are sweating and straining ourselves, or as I like to say, “Looking sensual with a perfect sport performance”. Besides, what is a better time than the present to work on the “New-You”? I like to think that a new year brings a new start. For me personally, this new start comes along with a healthier lifestyle, which definitely includes doing sports and staying fit. Therefore I was very happy to jumpstart to the “New-Me” with these fun activities in Thailand!

The first adventure on the list was Muay Thai over the roofs of Bangkok at the gorgeous Anantara hotel. I was given a bright red pair of Thai boxing shorts, and told to be on the roof of the hotel in one hour! The shorts were a perfect match to my red t-shirt. Knowing that everything will be filmed, I was quite happy about the perfect outfit. Thanks to my warrior-princess nature and my martial art past, I raced to the roof, joyous beyond belief at the thought of practicing with a real Muay Thai fighter. We trained for a while, and the teacher showed me the basic tricks in the book, and it didn’t hurt that he was quite handsome as well. After the lesson I realized how much I missed martial arts in my life. It’s a feeling of being connected to the ancient warriors and protectors from the past. After the kicks, I felt the adrenaline rushing through my veins the entire night!

What’s a Thailand trip without a proper visit into the depths of the jungle? Mine involved a 30 km bicycle ride! Spraying myself three times from head to toe in horrendous mosquito repellent, I jumped onto the bike and was ready to rumble. Again, the Outfit-Color-Gods were on my side during this trip, because I was given a helmet that perfectly matched what I was wearing. For those who know me, know my immense love for tie-dyed clothing, which probably confirms that I was a hippie in Woodstock in my past life. I was lucky enough to find a gorgeous blue t-shirt dress at TK Maxx, which was chic, yet casual enough for this jungle adventure.

We saw majestic temples on the way and many friendly locals waving at us. When we arrived in the jungle, we had to ride over swamps on elevated wooden boards. Some parts of the path were only 1 meter wide and I had to keep precise balance, not to fall off the elevation into the swamp, making myself the perfect snack for a friendly crocodile. Having to defend my new Muay Thai warrior image, I smiled and said sure, great, so easy. It was everything else but easy, because I swerved a few times, yet luckily caught my bike in perfect time before plunging into the green goo. I haven’t felt more alive in years! It was an absolutely amazing, thrilling and fascinating experience, one that I will not soon forget!

The life in Bangkok was very fascinating and full of action. The atmosphere and energy were something that I enjoyed very much. I come from Toronto, which is a fast-paced and vibrant city, therefore I felt very happy and at ease here. It was time to take the plane to our next destination, the lovely and beautiful Koh Samui.

Last but not least was the relaxing part of the wild sport tour. Since I can’t go without yoga for more than a few days, I was thrilled when we made our way to the Yogarden in Koh Samui. This was a funky little yoga school set outside in the nature. It was my first time doing yoga directly in a jungle outside. The experience was overwhelming, and I felt the peace and quiet enter my mind and spread throughout my body. Feeling pretty in my pink yoga outfit, this wonderful outdoor lesson left me with a very positive and releasing feeling.

A few days later, it was time to leave my newfound paradise, known as Thailand. I was very impressed with all the activities that we did there. I could not imagine a better place to enjoy such a variety of fun and wild sports as there! I felt elated and at peace. Everything was happening in the right flow and to perfection, including my impeccably handpicked sport outfits at TK Maxx for this amazing journey. It was time to board the plane back to Ebbelwoi city. Standing at the gate, while staring outside the large window, I felt that I will be back soon, because it’s impossible to stay away from the City of Angels.

Spaß und Sport – Genießertour in Thailand

Als ich von meiner Reise nach Thailand erfuhr, habe ich mich unglaublich gefreut, denn ich war noch nie dort und es war mir seit Jahren ein Herzenswunsch, einmal dort hin zu reisen. Die Glücksgöttin meinte es gut mit mir und sie war gleich sehr großzügig. Ich wurde eingeladen, in einer als Sendung auf RheinmainTV geplanten Fernsehshow namens „Thailand for Ladies“ mitzuwirken. Die Agentur Vivamundo Reisen und das TAT wollten damit den Tourismus in Thailand für Frauen fördern.

Ich war schon an vielen Orten auf der ganzen Welt und lebte auf vier verschiedenen Kontinenten, aber was auf meiner Liste noch fehlte war die Stadt der Engel, besser bekannt als Bangkok. Die Einheimischen sagen, dass in dieser geheimnisvollen Stadt die unsterbliche Gottheit wohnt und der Gedanke, über den gleichen Boden wie die unsterblichen Seelen zu gehen gab mir das Gefühl auf einer geheimen Mission zu sein. Wir bestiegen das wunderschöne rosa und lila bemalte Thai Airways Flugzeug und starteten zu unserem Abenteuer.

Es standen viele faszinierende kulturelle Dinge auf unserem Programm, aber was mich wirklich in den Geist der Kriegerprinzessin versetzte, war unser imposantes Sportprogramm: Muay Thai, Yoga und eine Radtour im Dschungel!

Bevor ich Frankfurt verließ, hatte ich mich mit der passenden Kleidung für alle Aktivitäten ausgerüstet und zwar bei TK Maxx, denn dort findet man eine riesige Auswahl an allem was man für perfektes Training braucht. Ich bevorzuge dieses Geschäft für meine sportlichen Sachen, weil sie dort nicht nur funktional sondern auch stilvoll sind und dabei auch noch immer bis zu 60% günstiger als der UVP. Zum Beispiel habe ich dort eine Leggings für meine Thailand Yoga-Klasse gekauft. Sie hat Netzeinsätze entlang der Beine, so dass die Haut an den richtigen Stellen zu sehen ist. Wir alle wollen, dass Aktivkleidung wirklich gut aussieht während wir schwitzen und uns anstrengen, oder mit anderen Worten, wir wollen es „sinnlich mit perfekter sportlicher Funktion“.

Außerdem, gibt es einen besseren Zeitpunkt als gerade jetzt an einem „neuen Ich“ zu arbeiten? Ich denke, dass ein neues Jahr immer einen Neuanfang bringt. Für mich persönlich bedeutet dieser Neustart einen gesünderen Lebensstil, zu dem definitiv Sport und Fitness gehören. Deshalb war ich sehr glücklich, mit diesen tollen Aktivitäten in Thailand in mein „neues Ich“ zu starten!

Das erste Abenteuer auf der Liste war Muay Thai über den Dächern von Bangkok im wunderschönen Anantara Hotel. Ich bekam ein leuchtend rotes Paar Thai Boxer-Shorts, verbunden mit der Aufforderung, in einer Stunde auf das Dach des Hotels zu kommen. Die Shorts passten perfekt zu meinem roten T-Shirt. Da ich wusste, dass das alles gefilmt wird, war ich sehr zufrieden, dass das Outfit so perfekt passte.

Dank meiner Kriegerprinzessinnen-Natur und meiner Kampfkunst-Vergangenheit rannte ich voller freudiger Erwartung auf das Training mit einem echten Muay Thai Kämpfer auf das Dach. Wir trainierten eine Weile, der Lehrer zeigte mir die grundlegenden Tricks in seinem Buch – dabei schadete es der Sache überhaupt nicht, dass er auch noch ziemlich gut aussah. Nach der Lektion wurde mir klar, wie lange ich in meinem Leben Kampfkunst verpasst habe. Sie vermittelt das Gefühl, mit den alten Kriegern und Beschützern aus der Vergangenheit verbunden zu sein. Nach den Tritten fühlte ich wie das Adrenalin die ganze Nacht durch meine Adern rauschte!

Was ist eine Thailand-Reise ohne ein richtiges Eintauchen in die Tiefen des Dschungels? Meine Version davon bestand aus einer 30 km Fahrradfahrt! Nachdem ich mich dreimal von Kopf bis Fuß mit einem abscheulichen Moskito-Abwehrmittel eingesprüht hatte sprang ich auf das Fahrrad und war einsatzbereit. Wie so oft auf dieser Reise waren auch diesmal die Outfit-Farben-Götter auf meiner Seite. Der Helm den ich bekam, passte farblich genau zu meiner Kleidung. Wer mich näher kennt weiß von meiner großen Vorliebe für Batik Stoffe, vermutlich der Beweis für ein vergangenes Leben als Flower-Power-Hippie in Woodstock. Ich hatte das Glück, ein wunderschönes blaues T-Shirt-Kleid bei TK Maxx gefunden zu haben, das schick und dennoch lässig genug für dieses Dschungelabenteuer war.

Wir sahen majestätische Tempel auf dem Weg und viele Einheimische winkten uns freundlich zu. Als wir im Dschungel ankamen, mussten wir teilweise Sumpfgelände auf erhöhten Holzbrettern überqueren. Einige Abschnitte des Weges waren nur ca. 1 Meter breit und ich musste sehr präzise balancieren um nicht in den Sumpf hinunter zu fallen, was mich zu einer perfekten Zwischenmahlzeit für ein freundliches, aber hungriges Krokodil gemacht hätte. Da ich mein frisch erworbenes Image als Muay -Thai-Krieger zu verteidigen hatte, lächelte ich und sagte: sicher, super, alles easy. Es war alles andere als easy, weil ich ein paar Mal böse schlingerte, aber glücklicherweise mein Rad im allerletzten Moment vor dem Abtauchen in den grünen Schmodder wieder in den Griff bekam. Seit Jahren habe ich mich nicht mehr so lebendig gefühlt! Es war eine rundum erstaunliche, spannende und packende Erfahrung, eine Erfahrung, die ich nicht so schnell wieder vergessen werde.

Das Leben in Bangkok war hochinteressant und voller Aktion. Ich saugte mit Genuss die Atmosphäre und die Energie dieser Stadt in mich auf. Ich komme aus Toronto, einer hektischen und dynamischen Stadt, daher fühlte ich mich hier sehr glücklich und wohl. Es war Zeit, den Flieger zu unserem nächsten Ziel, dem wunderschönen und großartigen Koh Samui zu nehmen.

Zu guter Letzt kam der entspannende Teil der coolen Sporttour. Da ich es nicht mehr als ein paar Tage ohne Yoga aushalte, machte ich mich begeistert auf unseren Weg zum Yogarden in Koh Samui. Dieser entpuppte sich als eine unkonventionelle, kleine Yoga-Schule draußen in der Natur. Zum ersten Mal machte ich Yoga draußen, direkt in einem Dschungel. Eine überwältigende Erfahrung, ich spürte, wie sich Frieden und Ruhe über meinen Kopf und meinen ganzen Körper ausbreiteten. Ich fühlte mich gut aussehend in meinem rosa Yoga-Outfit und verließ diese wunderbare Outdoor-Lektion mit sehr positiven und befreiten Gefühlen.

Ein paar Tage später war die Zeit gekommen, mein neues Paradies Thailand wieder zu verlassen. Ich war sehr beeindruckt von all den Unternehmungen die wir dort erleben durften. Ich könnte mir keinen besseren Ort vorstellen, um eine solche Vielfalt an Spaß und wilden Sportarten wie dort zu genießen. Ich war beschwingt und zufrieden mit der Welt. Alles auf dieser tollen Reise lief flüssig, perfekt und passte, inklusive meiner tadellos handverlesenen Sport-Outfits von TK Maxx. Es war Zeit, das Flugzeug zurück nach Ebbelwoi City zu besteigen. Ich stand am Gate, sah durch die großen Fenster und fühlte, dass ich bald zurückkehren werde – es ist unmöglich, der Stadt der Engel lange fern zu bleiben.

Tbilisi Fashion Week 2015 – Part 1

Tbilisi Fashion Week 2015 – Part 1 1200 400 Galia Brener

Last month, I was delighted to get an email from a beautiful friend of mine, Keti Bochorishvili, who is the Vice Minister of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia. She told me that Tbilisi was having a fashion week and wanted me to be part of it. I was very honored to get such a lovely invitation and of course I agreed without hesitation! I was really excited because I heard so many positive things about the Georgian culture, food and traditions. What I was also really looking forward to was seeing the fashion style designed and worn there.

 

My flight was very pleasant and I got a chance to taste my first Georgian meal. I knew right away that I would love their food! (I will write a separate article about my cultural experience). Upon landing, I was greeted by a woman with sensual curves and shiny long black hair. I noticed right away that the Georgian women are very warm, friendly and beautiful. She brought me to my driver and they took me to the hotel, directly in the center of Tbilisi. I checked in and made my way straight to the spa. I wanted to relax after my long flight and look fresh and beautiful for the first day of the Tbilisi fashion week! I was pleasantly surprised to see that the hotel was stocked with Aromatherapy Associates – one of my favorite beauty brands. I love their lip balm because it heals my extremely dry lips within 2 days! I put on my favorite red bikini, jumped into the pool and did a few laps. After relaxing to the point of no return, I went early to bed, excited like a little girl before the first day of school.

 

I was greeted by the beautiful Natia Jguburia, who is the general manager of the Tbilisi Fashion Week. Together with the Georgian National Tourism Administration, they made it possible for me to be there and see their lovely country. Natia and I got along very well and bonded quite quickly. Along with her came Elene Rakviashvili, a stunning Georgian artist, who was to be our tour guide for the entire week. Elene and I also got on very well, and had many moments of fun, joy and laughter throughout the week. We were a small group of bloggers and photographers, including Daria Shapovalova – creative director of Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days and Gianni Pucci – photographer for Vogue Italia.

 

The first stop was the press conference at the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the public and the gorgeous Tako Chkheidze – who is the founder of the Tbilisi Fashion Week (TFW). The board members spoke a bit about the event, then we introduced ourselves and gave some TV interviews. After the conference ended, the countdown started and it was only a few hours away from the opening of the TFW. We went back to change at the hotel, and I opted to be completely clad in black. For the first evening, I chose an a-line black mini dress covered with sequence, which I got at my friend – Yulia Mettier’s Dress Affairs boutique in Frankfurt. I topped it off with my favorite black Versace leather jacket. I combined the look with combat-style boots with a 12cm heel from Jimmy Choo and my favorite Chanel Ombre Minaudiere bag in black and white. Those who know me, know my love for the black rock-chic look. My fashion rule is simple and easy: black when it’s cold, colors when it’s warm.

 

The venue of the TFW was very cool! It was a mall building still in construction directly at the Rose Revolution Square. We arrived a bit earlier and explored the location. There was a big hall attached, which exhibited some design pieces of upcoming and well-know exiting Georgian designers. I especially fell in love with the leather cuff with a 3D molded face on it from Chubika – a very creative designer that also produces funky hats without the top part. (Photo of cuff is below the article). Slowly the people were gathering, and the excitement was growing. I was pleased to see that many people were wearing black, not just myself. I later found out that the color black is very beloved for clothing in Georgia.

 

In the foyer, there were many interesting types. One could see that the Georgian people had a very good fashion sense and many unique outfits were to be seen. I was permanently looking from left to right, like a cat keeping track of a tennis match. The women were very feminine and were not afraid to express that. I really liked the bold styles and impressions! It felt like the foyer was getting smaller and smaller, and the crowd was getting larger and louder by the second. Everyone was ready to start off the fashion week. It was time! Natia took my hand, and we followed Tako upstairs to the runway. We were seated at the front row and given gift bags full of makeup to remind us of this fabulous evening.

 

The rest of the people came upstairs and found their places. Before the show started, they were playing “Crazy” by Ornette – a song that I fell in love with in Ibiza a few years ago. The moment felt right and I knew that it would be an unforgettable week. The lights suddenly dimmed, the bass dropped, my heart started beating faster, and two Matériel models walked slowly out. It was like a scene from the Matrix. The first word that came out of my mouth was a loud: “Wow!…..”

 

To be continued…
