Travel is Medicine
This was my view for a few days while staying in #baliindonesia I visited Bali twice. The first time was for a legit vacation and the second time was for spiritual reasons. Listen, Bali is incredible touristy. And because of that on the surface it may seem a bit diluted. Not only that, you’re swarmed by merchants and everyone on the hunt for that rupiah. But I can’t deny there is a spiritual element that hangs in the air. It’s for that reason alone I enjoyed my stay there.
What I love about travel is the constant discomfort. It’s hard to remain on autopilot and that’s how most of us operate. We don’t have to think about how we move and we’re not always mindful about how we communicate with each other. Traveling regularly keeps you on your toes, it keeps the senses activated, and it increases your confidence levels. There’s more, but what does travel do for you?
I spent about 9 months living there. I couldn’t leave Japan without seeing Kyoto. When you visit here you’ll notice formal traditions are still a thing and you’ll see the Japanese dressed in traditional clothing and Kaiseki dining which I had the pleasure to engage in. Kaiseki is a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner. Truth be told, travel is part of my self-care routine. But, I’ve had to adjust like most of us. Adaptability and flexibility is what allows you to last through a crisis.

I've spent the last 40 days traveling. I visited 14 cities and three countries, traveling through Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. Phew! Travel is medicine for me. But on the flip side, I know how constant travel leads to constraints in other areas of life. But most things in life are a trade-off. And it’s hard to have one thing without the other. To experience more meaning, to experience more of what you want in life, there is a trade-off and there is a price you must pay.
I love the town of Oaxaca. It’s like traveling back in time. It has so much character and lots of churches. A lot of the doors look this big and wide. And the art my goodness! I’ll definitely be back. Don’t skip out on Mexico there’s more to this beautiful country than Cancun. Nothing wrong with Cancun but don’t be afraid to go off the beaten path. What’s on your travel list for 2020? Africa is mine! ❤️
