Wonderful writing! I love your prose and sense of awe!


Thank you for this wonderful article, Yoga Journal. I am heading to Kuala Lumper this year with an open heart and smile to embrace whatever arises.


What a beautiful article! Thanks for sharing!

This is a beautifully written, perfectly-paced and very visual piece.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow what a beautifully inspiring article. I am actually currently on a journey in Japan. I've been here for 2 months so far and love it, I feel inspired everyday. You are absolutely right and I hadnt even realized it, it is a journey of exposing yourself to the world, allowing yourself to become vulnerable. That's exactly what I need to be doing on my path right now. Thank you!

What struck me is the lesson that the more we make ourselves vulnerable, the more we find the universe will take care of us in ways we could not even hope for. Fear disappears, trust blossoms. What a wonderful lesson-if only we can remember this especially in the West. Thank you for your poignant and open-hearted article...Linda


Thank you for sharing. I feel very inspired, you have moved me. (I feel like I went somewhere today)

What a joy and blessing to read and be reminded of the vastness of our inner and outer world. Yes, humankind is generous and the more we open up and allow our greatness to shine, the more, as you say, the world responds. Enjoy every blessing en route .... ntathu


Nice! Thanks.


You are a beautiful writer and perfectly articulated how I felt when I traveled backpacking for many months after college. I look forward to doing more after the kids have grown wandering around the world. The peoplescape is really what its all about it. some of my best memories. Thanks for your article; I'll treasure it.
