My gypsy soul has now taken me to 70 countries across our beautiful earth. 60 alone. I amtruly blessed and grateful.
My 5 month adventure has come to an end…for now. It was such an amazing adventure. I went to 16 countries. 13 of them which were new to me. And every single place I had new experiences and amazing unique adventures. I feel so blessed. I saw numerous cities, epic festivals, street carnivals, ancient rice fields, mountains, rivers, lakes, oceans, seas, volcanos, geisers, hot springs, jungles, rain forests, deserts, lagoons, cliffs, salt flats, waterfalls, beaches, countries, villages, town, cities. Visited schools and children all over the globe. They inspire me, as I inspired them. I swam with whale sharks, scuba dived with exotic sea animals, hugged trees, walked with tigers, stared down lions, played with lemurs in the jungle. Had tropical butterflies land on me, chameleons walk on my shoulder. I saw ancient places like Petra, climbed the a live volcano with the largest lava pool in the Congo, swam in the Dead Sea, visited the grand mosques, felt the Eastern European architecture, swam in oceans, seas, beaches of paradise, chickened out as I walked the plank to bungee jump. And most importantly I have met, interacted and shared so much with the people of the lands. One of my most beautiful experiences are always with the people. One of the most important things to me when I travel…is the energy and the culture…of the people. The people make the place. As well as the many friends I met along the way. In different places. People I have met during previous travels, people I have known for years from North America. And all the new people that entered into my life. Always good times. XO.
If you want to see any further of any of these countries I’ve been to the past two trips, you can go on my blog and choose which one may interest you most. For travel inspiration, stories, experiences, photos or videos. Soul food.
(not trying to OD on pics of myself, but I travel alone so I am my own photographer, orchestrator and my own muse, and I hope you enjoy the surroundings I am visually and soulfully)
UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
RWANDA AND DR CONGO
SERBIA AND CROATIA
CZECH REPUBLIC, AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY
If you haven’t “traveled” I highly suggest you do. I am not meaning staying at an all inclusive resort. Or a hotel in the main tourist district. Going on guided tours. Get in there. Stay as locally as possible. Ride on local transportation. Go on your own. Get out of your comfort zone. Experience the people. Go to a local bar in Kenya. Or play some dominoes in the streets of Cuba. Play with the kids in Nepal. Let the wind blow you onto an unorganized itinerary. I realize not everyone has the opportunity to do this. Because they have children or no time off, etc. But if you have the time. Explore. Discover. You won’t regret it. Every experience in life makes your spirit and soul richer. And to connect with humans and their culture is such a special thing.
Some of my favorite images I took from this trip:
Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates
Jordan, Turkey, Madagascar, South Africa
Mozambique, Rwanda, Congo, Serbia
Hungary, Croatia, Czech Republic, Austria
I have a thing for exotic animals. So I love to visit and interact them when I can. And of course take photos with them. Smile!
Madagascar Boogie Twirl
The many different animals that I interacted with:
Whale sharks in the Philippines. Butterflys in the Philippines. Tigers in Thailand. Elephants in Thailand.
Chameleons in Madagascar. Falcons in UAE. Fish in Thailand. Camels in Jordan.
Lions in South Africa. Lemurs in Madagascar. Lemurs again. Parrots in South Africa.
Baby Lions in South Africa. Ostrichs in South Africa. Giraffes in South Africa. Cheetahs in South Africa.
The king of the jungle ain’t got nothing on the queen! We had a stare down then became friends. Heart.
I learned so much this time around. The many cultures and histories. I learned about friendship. New friends and old friends. I learned what I want to have in my life or not. Energy, actions and vibrations never lie. Intentions, gratitude and appreciation. I experienced love. Serendipity. Something special. Knowledge of self. And learned once again, that I need to heal my deep rooted pain that we all grow up with some way or another. To be balanced and whole within myself. I still have a lot of work to do. But I am excited.
On and On. my cipher keeps moving like a rolling stone. Travel 4 life. I am truly blessed with life and opportunity. I am so grateful! I love you!
Globetrotting Jade sends her love and inspiration. She has been to 60 countries with me. Lucky girl.
