Pausing to reflect

Cesky Krumlov was one of those places that prompts and inspires reflection, simply because it’s serenity allows you to escape the noise of every-day thought and make room for the bigger picture. We found a riverside spot at a local vegetarian restaurant that we felt a continual draw to return to and it was here we conversed about our return home – the possibilities, how we will deal with ‘normal’ life again and how we might do things differently. We are both so aware that travel changes you and we talked about the possibility of wanting different things when we do return, how we might deal with that. We agreed on a few things in our conversation….we want to live generously, to engage in life-long learning and to support each other in achieving our aspirations. Who knows what these aspirations might be once this travel stint is over, but we are both committed to grow together and make room for each other’s desires.

In the end, you can’t really prepare for resuming ‘normal life’ again, all you can do is take one day at a time. Right now we still have at least 3 months left of travel and we want to make the most of every moment without being too concerned with our return. Anything beyond this adventure will take care of itself in due time.
