Well ... I am still here! ... But, I have been all over the place! LITERALLY! From the east coast: New York City! to Canada, Virginia, and Miami ... to the Caribbean Islands and Bahamas! Aruba, Belize, Jamaica, Saint Marten, San Juan, Mexico, Saint Kitts, Barbados ... to the southwest and national parks in Utah, Montana, Arizona, Nevada and back to California (for a brief hibernation moment)!
My travels have not stopped and I currently LIVE in Shanghai now! Also known as the Paris of the east. It's a totally different culture and scene compared to the laid back lifestyle and quirkiness of California. I certainly miss home, and, the diversity and color-full-ness of the San Francisco bay area but I don't see myself stopping any time soon!
Next week, I make a long awaited journey to TOKYO! As well as YOKOHAMA! and the seaside town of Kamakura. If there is time, I'll visit Mount Fuji, although, I am certain that this will NOT be my only trip to Japan in the coming months and years! There are so many parts of Japan I would love to see!
My upcoming plans include Barcelona, Paris, and other parts of Europe. As well as South Africa and Latin America. I would like to spend a couple of months in Mexico by the end of next year! I am not much of a social media poster, but, one of these days, I'll post more photos and diaries of my journeys!
For now, I just wanted to share my mantras. I re-discovered these in my MacBook Pro vault while I was rummaging through files. I made a few mantras that are great reminders of my purposes in life. They are as follows ...
