2 April 2013: back on the road
And a few months later….
So I tried to go back to the States after traveling through South America. I was there for four weeks flirting with the idea of staying… Guess what? I am not quite done with this walk-about yet! As soon as I booked my new air ticket to Costa Rica, the butterflies swirled in my belly and a contentment settled in my mind. My feet started to itch to be back on the road and I exhaled with relief.
Since the few days I have landed, I have seen every sunset, and every moon rise. The ocean has been warm and the people friendly, my time re-owned. It just feels good to be on the road. There is a comfort of traveling that blankets me and surrounds me with a sensation that home for me (right now) is “here”–with “here” being movable, transferable, portable, unfastened.
I was welcomed with the poignant sign above hotel reception, validating my homecoming–a very good ‘sign’ indeed.
