With all the travel hype going on at the moment and facing another domestic trip out west, I can’t help but think, should I, or shouldn’t I travel. With an upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon, open space, fresh air and a minimal amount of people, I wonder if it’s safe to go or not to go. My body craves the exercise it needs through hiking, and my soul seeks the adventure that springtime brings after being locked up in a small house all winter.
So the decision remains, do I travel or not travel with all the media hype about the corona virus. At this time domestic travel is still considered safe and millions of people are flying at this very moment. Is it safe to fly? Who knows, but I do know that life has no guarantees either way. You can stay in your own small town and be the victim of crime or catch an illness, or you can catch it abroad.
How do you know what to do? Being safe and responsible is the main thing. I recently went to a local health spa where I ended up catching the flu and was sick for three weeks. Life is ironic. What I do know is that life calls us at different times in our lives to make difficult decisions, some more difficult than others.
Every spring I take a hiking trip somewhere remote and beautiful. I feel alive again after the long hard Midwest winter and it marks the shifting of stagnation in both body and mind.
The recent news hype and fears about the corna virus reminded me of several trips that I took in the past in which I overcame fears and challenges in some of the most beautiful places on earth.
Nomadic Tales of a Traveling Counselor shares many of my experiences in Costa Rica, Havasu Falls, Tolantongo Mexico, the Grand Canyon, including several other incredible places around the globe.
For me, life is about travel and adventure and sharing it with others is what it is all about. We get out of our daily routines, our ruts, and our negative life patterns. We breathe new air, smell new aromas, and connect to the land and people in healing ways.
To go or not to go? Life waits for no one.
