I LOVE traveling and helping people with their travel plans, too. Meeting and connecting with people from all over the world and all different walks of life. I was always shy and somehow I have left that shyness behind with the "old me". Then I decided to travel to New Delhi, India alone and after a few days there - I found a guy that would drive me for the 5 hour trek to the Himalayas (I was scared to ride with this person but for 20 years I've wanted to get to the Himalayas and I was not going to turn back now) stayed for 3 weeks at an Ashram on the Ganges river - I was getting over some losses ( lost my father and brother) in my life so I spent time taking care of me by doing yoga, meditating and chanting, yes chanting at 6:00am each morning, in a Huge room - sitting on a marble floor - wrapped in a blanket cuz it was freezing in the early mornings there - it felt crazy but somehow I needed this - it was really about letting go of the past and starting a new chapter and now I'm inviting the next adventure in my life... I'm doing something that is life-changing - I just finished writing a book titled, "OKAY JUST ONE RIDE" and it's already listed on Amazon - YAY!!!!) So, do what you're afraid of and you will blossom more than you could ever imagine (someone else's quote) this rings in my soul - it works! PS. In the picture, is also my mother Kaaren (in the middle) and my sister, Mary on the right ;-)
