Not all those who wander are lost”. ~J.R.R. Tolkien
I love to travel! The sights, sounds and challenges of foreign lands feed my curious nature and adventurous spirit. I have spent countless enjoyable hours in some of the world’s finest museums, castles and cathedrals. I have hiked the beautiful forests, hills and mountains in distant lands. I have explored the ruins of stone monuments and temples; massive mystical time capsules telling their ancient stories. I have tasted the food, danced to the music, studied the history, attempted the language and enjoyed the people from different cultures across the globe, always learning and growing in ways that only direct experience offers. On these diverse and exciting journeys, I like to be present, connected and passionately alive, and feel extremely grateful for the experience. And so I am in life and in love.
I readily admit that I have always been a wanderer and a seeker, having traveled through many countries and having experienced many cultures, religions and spiritual traditions. However, I do not use travel or spiritual investigation as a way to escape or distract me from life or purpose. Rather, I view it as an open invitation to fully embrace the real journey and integrate and use all of my personal experience and knowledge as a means to have greater love and acceptance for my self, others, and the world. Seeing and experiencing me against the back-drop of different places or through the lens of various spiritual principles sharpens my image of who I am. This has given me a remarkable perspective to view the world and my place in it.
But, I recently realized that although I have traveled to twenty-five countries, my adventures through the peaks and valleys of intimate love are equally fascinating, fun and rewarding! I am wondering if there are others who share these views; not only for world travel, but also for the valuable journey into self and through relationship. I would love to hear from you!
