It was not my intentions to be on the road for this long. In fact, the initial haphazard plan of mine consisted of three months of traveling around the world. I went off on my own with very little investigation to where I was heading. Meaning, no hotels planned out, no returning fights. Just three one way tickets to Tokyo, then Dubai, and then Greece. I thought that was pretty adventurous, but my little plan was completely blown out of the water when I fully surrendered in September and allowed the universe take control. Don’t worry, I’ll explain below.
What occurred as a result? An additional 9 months were added to my itinerary. Road trips, cruises (my first), flying all around the United States, and a sweet trip through Central and South America. So with all the new cities, new friends, and long travel days, what did I gain in my year of travel? Probably more than I’m even conscious of, but here are the significant points that I keep returning to while reminiscing about each location.

Close your eyes for a moment and picture this in your mind. You are in your private cabin on a luxury catamaran charter in France, relaxing to the sway of the boat on the gentle waves. Your captain calls you up to the deck, as the luxurious vessel floats into a picturesque cove to while away an afternoon in the French sunshine. You go up to the deck, and lay back on a sun lounger, taking in the warmth of the sunshine, the deep blueness of the sea and the sounds of the waves gently lapping against the side of the boat. You can smell fresh seafood cooking away in the kitchen. It is a perfect moment and one that is next to impossible to recreate in the confines of a hotel.
