Where to go next? Is a yoga retreat in my future? Beach trip? Europe? Or somewhere domestic? I have trips planned through September and know of two to kick start 2017 but the remaining three months of 2016, I am open. Wide open to what? I don't know. More yoga training. A wine inspired trip or travel abroad.
I see Spain, Italy, Montreal. Many of the upcoming yoga retreats are hosted in Italy, Bali or the Caribbean. I have been to Italy and so I hesitate to sign on to one of those. If I went to Spain, I could potentially visit a friend of mine from college. He and his wife live in Portugal through the end of the year. After that, they are considering a return to the States. Maybe the Midwest or Boston.
There is a growing wine region in Uruguay. I could so go there to explore that or some of the history of that country. Panama and Columbia both intrigue me. Or if I wait til April, I can join my friends yoga retreat to Nepal. But, do I want to wait? I am a little distracted and overwhelmed by all of the possibility. I keep seeing reminders of living in the moment and creating memories. That is 100% what I would like to be doing.
I suppose I should think more on it before committing to a definite course of action. Spain does sound lovely. Or Greece. I wonder what is the best place to travel in November or December. I would love to go to my friend's wedding in December. However, it doesn't seem like the best time for me or the occasion. I would love to visit my friend when I can hang out with her. I don't know. I am still on the fence with it. I have been to the Bahamas, twice. If and when I achieve another passport stamp, I would like a new one. I don't know that I want to return somewhere I have been before.
There are yoga and surf retreats that seem interesting. I have been teaching friends yoga the past few weeks and recognize that I want to continue my own training. Keep it fresh and interesting. I don't want to rely on what I know. I want to continue to teach and be relevant in that. I look into my numerology or what I should be doing in my life. Always see teaching, healing....I am trying to incorporate that into my livelihood. Maybe take the time to spread a little experience in my current situation. I did that last night. Instead of getting worked up by how things normally go, I took action to ensure that people were aware of their tasks and that they needed to start doing them. I mentioned being efficient and planning on being done in a timely manner. Seemed like it worked and that everyone was on board. I found myself on a departing train that was perfect. I ended up sitting by my co-worker's wife and learning that she and I had a lot of people in common. She used to work in the metro area and we had a lot of the same friends from the service industry. She indicated that her husband did not have the same experience as he had only worked at the airport. I think of all of the people I have met in my career from being in Denver to Phoenix and Santa Fe. Some of my closest friends I met from working in this industry. I am thankful for that and cannot imagine what it would have been like to only experience that perspective. There are regulars that I still am in contact with. The airport has some repeat clients that I have found but few and far between. Or that I have seen. I rarely hang out with my co-workers unlike another job that I have had. Spending $7 for a beer is not something that I enjoy doing and sporting the uniform. I have spent some time with a few of my co-workers but it always seems rushed. Maybe it will open up later.
I am still considering where I want to go. I am not worried about the how. I feel that I will be heading abroad soon. I only need to figure out the where.
Until later, I am off to flow, then brunch, then work.....
