Trains, planes, ships, boats, scooters, trams, busses, escalators, elevators, cars, shuttles, taxi trucks; you name it and we have been in it in transit. Since my last entry, much has transpired. We completed our journey around South America and through the Panama Canal finding ourselves back in Fort Lauderdale, where we started our voyage 66 days earlier. At Ft Lauderdale we transferred to the Miami Airport to fly to Seattle, our home town. After a full day of travel and transfers in Atlanta we found ourselves back in the familiar cool midnight rain of the Northwest.
Seattle was short and sweet; only a few days, taking care of business and loose ends and a little time to share with family and dear friends. Although short, the trip was warming and lovely despite the damp and cool gray quintessential Seattle weather. It was nice to feel a familiar season after months of different climates, time zones, and equator crossings which resulted in no sense of time and space. Where were we in a hurry to go? The answer…….ON A VACATION!!!!! After four months of hard work, seven days a week, we needed to recharge our battery, feed our mind, body, and spirit. A place to practice yoga, sit in stillness, listen to the sounds of nature, get our creative juices flowing, cleanse, eat beautiful healthy flavorful fresh food, and relax. Where did we expect to find all this? Where else but,THAILAND!!!
