When people talk about traveling with intention, often they just mean to have an idea of where you’re going and what you plan to do. In this blog, intention goes beyond just having a general purpose. It’s about setting the scene for personal transformation. For me, traveling with intention would be a combination of doing the research to take advantage of the possibilities, making a plan to get the most from each trip, and maintaining an open mind and heart when life takes you in a different direction.
It’s finding a balance between holding an intention and going with the flow. My intention with this blog is to visit some locations in my own back yard that offer opportunities to experience unique cultures, customs, wisdom, and/or natural beauty. From there, I plan to expand outward, seeking opportunities for those who want to grow through their travel.
Recent Covid-19 measures have put my travel plans on hold for a while, but they’ve also given me time for a bit of a reboot. For the purposes of this blog, I will be writing some travel tips and seeking out sites where interaction isn’t necessary to fully appreciate what they offer.
In the meantime, I just finished up my first travel memoir, which I plan to self-publish within the week! It’s a story from my earlier travels, a love story set in Istanbul. There will be more on that later.
For now, I’d like to welcome you. I can’t wait to see how this evolves! Please feel free to comment and share… I hope you’ll be part of that evolution!
