Last year on 13th April we headed to the San Francisco airport to catch our flight to Bangkok at 1 am. For Grant, it was the first time to leave the USA, since then we traveled to 17 countries together.
I collected some questions that you were interested in, based on the messages I received.
It seems like a miracle when you actually live this life?
Absolutely! For me, this is not natural, or easy. Every single time we go to a new place, new country and when we are there, every day it comes to my mind, how lucky I am to experience all these beauties.
There are a lot of things I’ve never heard of, I was scared to try, or just the person was missing who could introduce it for me. Here are the 10 things I needed to travel to like them, try them.
If someone said one year ago, that I’m gonna be a sushi lover…I would’ve started to laugh badly. Even to think about the raw fish made me feel bad. I never got it, why a lot of people like it, for me raw fish, meat were equal to danger. Nice stereotype, I guess.
Then an American guy came and felt like he has a mission to introduce sushi to me and how to eat with a chopstick because no one ever succeeded before. I think he was lucky, now we are about to planning our trip to Japan and eat sushi every damn day.
You could already read some tips for preparing to travel somewhere. I also wrote some suggestions to make your trip more safe, and about packing.
Maybe You felt it wasn’t enough, and I totally agree with You! Even that you have maybe the flight ticket, it’s hard to go! Years ago it was tough for me too, but I made a decision I would never regret. You’re not alone with it, look what I just collected here!
Do you have sometimes the feeling that You’re not satisfied with yourself?
You had plans, but they are not going well? You have a hobby but you barely do it? You’re time is running away, you were just snipping your morning coffee, and then you notice, it’s 11 pm, and you didn’t do anything?
In the last months, I felt the same. What the hell is happening with me? I was never the lazy one, I loved to do things, and besides that I was practicing yoga, I was reading books, listening to music all the time, etc. In the beginning I said, it’s because we are traveling a lot, I don’t have time for it, I’m too tired, because we walked a lot that day, and for sure I can not roll my mat out. I had a lot of excuses, and I was believing in them. If you are lucky you have someone to facing you the truth, that You’re lying to yourself. What a woman reacts on this? Of course I cried, because I realized, he’s totally right, and something is not okay with me. It didn’t hurt that he told me, it was more about the fact, that I was disappointed in Me. Because I don’t live the life I wanted.
I’m happy that i started to practice yoga, one of the most wise decision ever in my life. It taught me a lot, like how to be sustained, and not just while i’m practicing, but also in life. It’s amazing to see how my body evolve in the positions with time. I can touch my head with my feet, etc.
The zen gurus think that you’re thigh muscles strength influence your tenacity. Strong muscle, strong tenacity. They can squat next to the wall for minutes…try it, you will die! But if you think about it, it makes sense, right?
The main thing about yoga is the peace i feel when i do my practice. Why is that? One word: the present. I don’t think about my next meal, the bills, the guy who smiled on me at the restaurant, just how to grab my leg to reach the sky, how my body moves when i’m inhaling, paying attention to your breath is the best meditation ever…
