Lessons from my latest travel adventure!

yoga Jun 25, 2019

Recently, I was so fortunate to be able to take 3 weeks off and travel to Canada, Ireland and Spain! I love to travel and explore the world so it was an absolutely wonderful experience. I believe that travel allows us to see ourselves and the world in a new way. Our eyes and hearts open to new sights, smells and experiences. These moments leave us feeling connected, inspired, expansive but also humbled by the vastness of life.

Ultimately, regardless of creed or color we are all so very alike. We love yummy food, delicious drinks, to sing, dance, and chat with friends, tell stories, be heard, be seen, to explore. And we all look more beautiful when we smile: eyes light up and hearts brighten and open.
