Travel is like love, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end. - Pico Iyer⠀
I didn’t really have a timeline on my #vanlife travels. Some people know that after 6 months or 1 year that they will go back to their homes and jobs. For those people, van life is an extended vacation. I had always intended to take it on as a new lifestyle, continuing on indefinitely - until I felt complete with the journey and no longer wanted to be on the road. Last May, I drove to Monterey, CA to attend the Conference for Global Transformation. There I met this guy, Lee, that was out to spread LOVE, one random act of kindness at a time. 😍 Long story short, he joined me for a week in the van and we are now doing this adventure called life together. I am so lucky to have his love and support during this transition. He’s like my lifeguard - sitting on the edge of the pool, feet in the water, allowing me to awkwardly splash and cough and flounder as I re-learn how to swim. His calm confidence is always right there, quietly cheering me on, allowing me to grapple, grow and expand on my own, and only intervening when I REALLY need it - and he somehow always knows when I really need it. 😂 I so love writing this next chapter together with someone that values love, adventure, fun, growth, and Pearl the way I do. Future van exploits may not always be solo, but I know for a fact the adventures will be expansive and never-ending with this lovely human by my side. 💃🕺🚐💨❤️⠀

I'm a night owl, The best ideas come to me in the dead of night.
An Owl’s eyes adjust in an instant from telescopic to microscopic. With Owl energy surrounding your soul you can look into the past, present and future with uncanny accuracy.
We aware that as a Spirit Animal, Owl often calls on us to release the past and put down burdens that hold us back. You have to face your shadows and fears, then move beyond them to find true happiness.
Owls don’t just honor us with the ability of “Second Sight”. These majestic birds have hearing that is quite literally “perfect stereo”. Their ears are are not symmetrical as one is higher than the other. This allows sound to be heard separately in the individual ear.
