Notes from the road – edition 21: Wheels in motion
I don’t have a lot to write about this week. The peace and quiet of the mountains have shaped a steady routine into my days.
In the mornings I practice yoga, then at Tushita, a Buddhist monastery in Dharamkot, I go to a free meditation and introduction to Buddhism, which is a great chance to clear the mind and engage with new ideas. After that it’s time for breakfast and coffee, accompanied by my journaling and whatever work I feel like doing that day. The afternoons are a time for peace and quiet, and in the evenings, I gravitate towards my friends and the array of musical talent on offer here.
I was lucky enough this week, however, to do a photoshoot with my beautiful friend Amanda, who I met during my YTTC. We ventured up to the top of Bhagsu Waterfall and played around with some portraits and yoga poses in the afternoon light.
Europe has been a dream of mine for years and years. After much trepidation, preparation, and not a small amount of luck, I finally have flights booked to take me there. It’s been slow, frustrating, and at times filled me with doubt, but in trusting in the process, one of the greatest opportunities I’ve ever had has presented itself to me.
On Thursday I fly to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. My first time setting foot on European soil. A whole new and different set of challenges, experiences, and people await me. And I couldn’t be more excited.
Until next week, happy voyaging!
