Retrospective notes from a special journey: how India changed me

20140918-194001-70801147.jpg

Things have got a little busy and so much happening…LIFE eh:) While trying to handle the present I came across powerful memories…My last journey in India thought me  a lot… so many memories, incredible friends and experiences to treasure and learn from:)

I have traveled so many places in that country, met incredible people and I had some great experiences…Of course, there have been traveling blues, unpleasant situations and all but it is part of the adventure:)

For me, this particular journey has been a real eye-opening  going through ups and downs and the more the days passed by the more I was able to understand what others told me about India…Things like it is a unique place that you either love or hate…. The poverty you experience there is so overwhelming that can make you sick…. It is so strange as everything is going to hit you so hard there…The smells, the flavors, the contrasts all merge and keep coming back again and again…

It is amazing how every single time something is going terribly bad…like touching bottom, the very next moment few seconds away is uplifting and someone randomly comes your way and make things better…this kinda continuous cycle has been happening to me all the time…and you kind of learn to trust the process and let things unfold…

While at times things have been tough traveling as female solo..other times incredible people made me feel home in the middle of the desert, slums, strangers welcomed me within their families…

I have been completely absorbed into those moments that the typical timeline and worries about past and future vanished…Just being present trying to grasp everything around me and keep up with different reality took up all of me!!!Incredible learning curve!!!

I have been collecting so many memories and stories I cherish, not to mention the great people that truly touched my heart…I really feel like some pieces of my heart were left there with them…yet my heart and love are growing and connecting more with everything. It would take forever to tell a story about this journey…maybe at some point I will write about this adventure…

I just would like to thank you everyone…that crossed my path in this special journey no matter the impact, no matter the kind of energy and vibes….just going through the process has been the most important part…
