Healing in the Hobbit

Standard

For the past couple of weeks I have been staying in the magical hobbit like countryside of England outside of Gloucester. Thom and I have been keeping busing doing an abundance of projects around his house. Besides that, he has been teaching me many interesting things that are helping me to feel at peace with everything. Honestly, this may be the first time in my life that I really understand that I do not need to wish for anything. Instead, I just need to be present and be open to all of the amazing stuff that the Universe continues to send my way!IMG_2331 IMG_2339 Read the rest of this entry

Peace in the Hobbit

Standard

After leaving Horley, I headed to see my friend Thom who I met in Cambodia. During my time in Otres Beach, he taught me some amazing stuff that has really helped me to be present and to shift my perspective for the better. When I met him, he told me all about this peaceful place where he lives that is like the hobbit in real life. Knowing that I would have to leave Paris this summer, I had told him that the UK was a possibility. So when he invited me to come and do some work with him in exchange for room and board, I thought why not come and check out the hobbit in real life?IMG_2279 IMG_2284 IMG_2289 IMG_2318 Read the rest of this entry

Small Town Weekend and a Day in London

Standard

Although Eddie and I had been planning to meet in Brighton, which is why I even decided to head there right away when I left London, the plan had changed. Since I have traveled all over the place without booking anything in advance, I had never anticipated it being such a challenge to find a decent place to stay for a reasonable price. After walking around in search of places and looking online, where most things were already booked or more than 600€ for five nights, I had to come to meet him here in a small town called Horley instead of staying in Brighton. Had I met my Brighton friends sooner, perhaps I would have been able to find something more reasonable, but since we already had a hotel booked, I stuck to the plans and went to meet him.IMG_2211 Read the rest of this entry

Brighton Blessings

Standard

Tuesday morning after breakfast, I left my belongings with Tatiana and Madalin so I could go out and explore Brighton a bit. My objectives were to find a good place to stay that night and to get a bite on my wrist checked out. Somewhere in Asia, approximately in February or so, something bit me and I still have a mark from it. Since I have also been experiencing some other allergic reaction type symptoms, I had recently asked a few people what they thought about the bite and everyone told me to get a professional opinion. First I stopped in an acupuncture place and then I went to a pharmacy. Both people with whom I spoke advised me to see a doctor and told me about a clinic there in Brighton.IMG_2175 Read the rest of this entry

The Amazing Kindness of Strangers

Standard

When I arrived in Brighton, I arrived without a place to stay because I had left so suddenly.  However, I did not think it would be any type of issue as I have arrived in cities all over the world without reservations and I usually find the best places when I don’t reserve a place in advance.  Yet I quickly learned that this was not such a great idea in Brighton. All of the guesthouses were ridiculously expensive and there are not nearly as many hostels as I had anticipated.IMG_2174 Read the rest of this entry

Two Strange Travel Days

Standard

My flight from Zurich to London was already four and a half hours because of the connections. Plus, my friends dropped me off at the airport five hours early because they wanted to take their time driving to Germany and have lunch at some special place where they could take a gondola ride. So I just sat and passed the hours of one of the longest airport travel days to go the shortest distance and just reminded myself that it is all part of the experience!2014-07-06_1404671052 Read the rest of this entry

Last Days in Switzerland and Germany

Standard

Unfortunately, Leita received news on Thursday that her dad had passed away. So we just had a chill type of day, had lunch, and then met Dylan later for dinner in Germany. On the way home, we stopped at a town German town called Küssaberg, which had some spectacular views! Ending the day with a gorgeous sunset seen from the top of a mountain was a sweet way to end the day.IMG_2071 IMG_2074 IMG_2081 Read the rest of this entry
