The Ups and Downs of Travelling

The Ups and Downs of Travelling

Gulf Breeze – Florida

 

Just arrived back after travelling for approximately 11 weeks, through 17 states and almost 7000 miles…………..it’s been incredible yet not always easy!! lol Oh the ups and downs of travelling!!

For the most part it’s been fantastic.  Saw many places I’ve never seen before, met many new friends, connected with dear friends, wore flip flops lots, took many pictures, found lots of great markets, ate amazing foods (yes while travelling and I will post on that!) and then a few little hiccups that aren’t worth mentioning but some did prevent me from being on the internet like my hard drive crashing YET I did save most of my stuff!!

Amazing Old Old Building in Toas, NM

 

I will share more of our travels and photos in upcoming posts – I took so many photos as we had so many amazing adventures!!

 

Crystal in Santa Fe, NM

So many photos – I don’t even know where to begin.  I know I probably could have posted more along the way, but while travelling we did stay at places with no internet often, which was a tad frustrating but also awesome – it allowed me to unplug more, be more present, get more into my creative juices and just be and create space where I could explore what I truly desire – not from a materialistic stance but one of feeding my soul, listening to heart, what gets my juices flowing type of space.

Yoga at Red Rocks, CO

 

I love travelling.  There are so many places to see, people to meet, next experiences to have that life is just too short!!

My kids are off travelling and have probably seen more of the world than I have.

Yes I got the bug and I am very fortunate to be able to travel due to having businesses that allow me to work or not wherever I am.

Red Rocks

 

While travelling this time, and having little internet access – which btw, I have found a great solution for and will be able to share more next month – has allowed me time to really dive into some things.  Since meeting some incredible people – people who are out of the box thinkers, creators and livers – in other words they truly embody who they really are, live from the heart and their truth and live healthy lives truly inspired me to up my role in my life.  I have been feeling flat lined in areas of my life and a sluggishness – it’s either what I added in to my way of eating or how I am thinking now and being or both – either way it’s great.

Quick snack on the border of 2 states!

 

I have always had an interest in the mystic side of things, health, alternative, quantum physics and it seems like now things are clicking faster and deeper.  I am doing more yoga, currently on a 10 Day Transformation and allowing myself time each day to meditate, do breath work and have some creative fun – otherwise I get bored and bitchy!!

I am heading out again come December some time – possible house sitting gigs lining up and to do more travelling and get out of the grey rainy season that is now upon us on the West Coast.  With my new phone I will have – posting and being on the internet will never be an issue again, I am so looking forward to taking many more photos and being on top of it better this time – this was like a trial run!!

Great Markets – Great Food!

 

I will be working on my Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project as that has become very clear to me that it needs to be finished and I will be starting another one to go along with it – which I can’t wait to share!!

There is nothing like feeling great, healthy and in love with oneself and life – not form an egoic sense but a true love that is deep and real.

Roasted Chilies – Taos, NM

 

There were many great things about this trip that all I can say is wow – can’t believe where the time went as it was incredible!!

 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Just wanted to share another update of our travels.  I have not been posting much as you know due to little to no internet and when we do have some its catch up time or time with special friends.  This journey is really showing me to be fully present in the moment, trust and be in the flow.

Just on the magic we have been creating I could write so many posts alone!!

New Orleans

 

Just had to play with some photos!! 🙂

At the same time, when I see what I see going on in the Southern States I have a heavy heart.  The crappy food, so much plastic, very overweight people, the speed people are driving AND many of them being on their phones while doing so, being at beaches and watching people be on their phones, the mega malls, the desolate buildings and towns.

New Orleans

 

Yet despite all of that I have been able to meet some amazing people, open people’s eyes up to some of the crap going on especially around food, emf’s, do more Yoga and take some great photos and yes more of women in the nude are coming – I can’t wait to dive into this project more and more as the more I talk with women the more I know this is so needed!!

We also met some amazing people living their bliss!!  And deepened friendships with people already in our lives and on the same path!!

PS – While we have been on our travels we have lost a few friends, one close, some more acquaintances, doesn’t matter – they were all amazing people and life is too short NOT to be living your bliss, your dharma, your passions – full of vitality, love and not giving a rats ass of what others think (as long as it doesn’t harm anyone or anything!!)
