Brief Exchanges

This photo was taken on Marco Island, one of southern Florida’s most tropical destinations. I was walking along the beach, heading towards a remote part of the island when I came across this guy standing in the ocean with a bucket on his head, and I thought, why not?

The best part of travel, especially solo travel, is meeting a variety of interesting people. Somehow, I have always ended up crossing paths with others who are either exploring their own journeys or like me, love to travel to different parts of the world in hopes of having new adventures. Each location has its own energy, whether it’s in the mountains, desert, urban cities or beach side, and all of the people I have met have inspired me or taught me lessons in kindness, generosity, gratitude and self-exploration.

The interaction with the bucket-head guy, was a humorous brief exchange on my journey which started out as a serious contemplation of my own life as I walked along the beach. This amusing interaction made me think about my own bucket list, the places I want to travel to, the life experiences I want to have, and the things I want to accomplish in my short life on earth.

Life is simply a series of brief moments. Whether we travel in our own cities or communities or travel abroad, our connections with others are what make our lives meaningful, interesting and fun.

What’s on your bucket list?

Solo Traveling for Your Soul

Traveling Solo

Have you ever tried going solo?  It’s a great experience that everyone should do at some point in their lifetime.  Traveling solo allows you the chance to get to know yourself better in several different ways.  Sometimes traveling alone can be a challenge, but more often, it is a wonderful experience that can open up your life in ways that you could never imagine.  I often take trips alone, meeting new and interesting people, exploring beautiful natural places and most of all, traveling solo allows my soul the chance to grow.

Solo spiritual traveling…. your soul needs it.
