At 4:30 in the morning, I was hoping that what was in the box was really what I thought the picture was. Breakfast of black rice milk, tastiness. Really it was!
Woohoo I'm here! After 4 airports, 2.5 hrs of searching for my bag and 2 hrs of sleep over a period of over 40 hours I made it! The turbulance on the plane was so bad that my well laid plans of sleeping were quickly, and violently, destroyed. Oh well, sometimes I just need a reminder that I really don't control everything 😊
I know that I had to plan a lot in order to make this trip happen, but I learned a valuable lesson. I do better with just going. I enjoy the researching and learning about a place...but as most of you know I get very excited. When that happens I don't sleep. Somehow my body just clicks into a bizarre "go" mode and no amount of Rescue Remedy calms it down. Then I think to myself, "self, to hell with the 4 drops they suggest, maybe 4 droppers will center me. Its just plant extract, right?" Anyway on the plane, when I wasn't sleeping, I did some math. The three days before I left, I slept a total of about 12 hours. Thank goodness for Rescue Remedy...
I feel calm when traveling. Is that an oxymoron?
For over 10 years I've had the same type of recurring dream. Same people, same place, same theme, same result...except for last night. Everything worked out. Travel is good for my soul. I think this blog thing is going to be good for it too. Just ask my mother, I don't really contact people when I'm traveling. The intentions are there, I promise they are. The plane is like the event horizon of a massive black hole. No light is escaping, much less a letter.
Alright, time to go explore.
