Travel to explore the outer worlds…

Travel to explore the outer worlds…

…while really diving deeper into the inner worlds

Through travel, we experience our outer world as being in a constant state of flux, ever changing scenery, people and experiences. For many, travel stimulates, creates a sense of excitement and invites the traveler to stay in the present. As travelers, we become acutely aware of life’s gifts, each moment, a new experience is being created, sustained, changed, transformed and then destroyed. Upon observation, this seems to be the normal state of affairs, and an analogy for life in general.

No experience remains as it is, as the laws of nature prevail.

Travel presents the invitation to not get attached to any outcome as travelers, we are conscious that all situations are temporary, all slices of life are fleeting and every experience is worth remembering. But going into every new location with the wide-eyed wonderment of a child,  embracing the unknown, we are more apt to remain present and open.. But having preconceived ideas about the experience, location or event before hand, will guarantee an unhappy experience sooner or later.

When circumstances change, and the changes are not to our liking, we experience unhappiness. On the other hand, if we exercise detachment, nothing can influence our state of being. Then, external events have nothing to do with our inner joy and peace of mind.

Travel gives me just that.
