We get up in the morning. We do our best. Nothing else matters.

All we know about the future is that it will be different. Perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same. So we must celebrate the changes.

Whirling Dervish in Turkey

Exactly 2 months from today, I will board an airplane and fly to Istanbul, Turkey. When I land on June 1, 2014 – the beginning of a new chapter will begin in my life. How will it unfold, I am uncertain at this point. From all my travels, I have not found a fully functioning a single crystal ball that can foresee the future!!

All I can do is trust and have faith in the Universe – believe that my path will unfold the way it needs to happen.

The next phase is starting to take shape!

Within the last 2 months I have found a tenant to rent my Home Sweet Home – without posting an ad in Toronto. Purely involving word-of-mouth through 3 people. I have potentially found the most accommodating tenants! I mean who agrees to rent a place without knowing the move-in date!!?! Seriously, right!?

Traveling as a Single Woman and sharing a ship with 183 other passengers and 92 crew members was such a wonderful experience. All the newly formed friendships, the camaraderie that came with sharing such a special journey added to the experience. Continue reading

The mysterious Amazon…

Back in 2008, after my 4 day trek to Machu Picchu, I went to the Peruvian Amazon river basin to recuperate. From Puerto Maldonaldo, we took a boat ride up the Tambopata river to stay in a jungle lodge. During the day, we would go on exploration walks into the forest with a guide. At night, we would take a ride up the river to look for caimans or explore the forest. The rainforest holds a mystery that cannot be found anywhere else.
