It's been so nice to have a long pause in travel and I think I finally got some time to reflect on the crazy fcking year I've had. I've been on the road for 13 months now, and I've been completely lost and then completely focused. Now I hope I can be somewhere in the middle.
So much has happened but my favorite moments seem to be the connections with people and the lack thereof. All my senses come to life when I travel back to these beautiful, dark and bizarre moments.
One experience that still makes me feel lots of emotions was my time in the north of Mexico when I was hosted by this couple in Sonora. It was a young couple and I mostly spent time my host. I felt completely at peace with her and this will sound strange but I was fascinated by her and her curiousity for the world.
She had a million questions to ask me and I answered all of them with a big smile on my face. It was refreshing to be with someone that was excited about everything. She had such a pure heart. I loved her energy and she was extremely beautiful.
It must be so interesting to read about my fascination with another person's wife lol. But I am being honest and of course, I respected and loved both of them. I miss them and I hope to meet them again.
I shared many connections with women throughout Mexico. Some of them were my hosts and some were travel partners. My heart was so open during my trip here that I think that energy attracts exactly that.
Writing this made me realize that the secret to connection might just be to have a natural curiousity for life and of course a strong sense of peace.
