Saying goodbye: An ode to my green ringed companion


After nine months, two weeks and one day of being my constant companion; of travellng long distances in cramped busses; of seeing the road from the top of a train rack, the back of a motorbike or from across my shoulder; of coming out to play in parks and gardens and lounges, on pavements and beaches, in cities and on mountaintops, with me and with many new friends; of being a conversation starter; of keeping me entertained and in shape (sort of), my fantastalicious – and no longer quite so round – hula hoop has found a new home.

Having seen parts of Europe, the Middle East and South-East Asia, my hula hoop will now join Jose as she continues to Australia and South America before returning home to the Netherlands. I have no doubt they will have much fun together, and make many more friends along the way. I look forward to posting photographs of Jose and her hoop along her journey.

Ah, if hoops could talk…

Jose, my neighbour, yoga friend and newest hooping sister.

  1. Yeehhh! I’m loving the hula hooping, I actually took the thing to the yoga studio today for the ‘Art of Play’ class! The ladies at the reception had A LOT of fun with it and so did a few of the other girlies in class including me! 🙂 I also watched some instruction videos on Youtube, so I cant wait to bust some moves in South America in a while! Thanks a million Stacey, I’ll see you Sunday! 😀
