I START SOLO

 “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – R L Stevenson


Everyone's journey in life is one that is solo. For my part, it took a while to get this straight in my head. Looking for something to create balance in my life, to calm my turbulent soul, i felt that travel could be my healer, my pathfinder to peace. 
So I start this month, August of 2016, releasing fear, and embracing freedom. Let us see how it unfolds. For me, travelling is not really new, being a Merchant Mariners wife, I have travelled around. But I wish to keep it going, to go solo, to explore, to understand life through my travels, meet people and breath free. CODDIWOMPLE , the name I really got attracted to, is a word, from a travel dictionary, which means " To travel in a purposeful manner, towards a vague destination". I wish to release all toxicity, and breath out all that does not serve me well. I wish to live, live free and untamed. I am sure I will love where ever i go, and whatever I see. And so I begin with my jaunt..and set my vagabond spirit free.
I start travelling, the first one being a small trip to Shimoga, Karnataka, India. This is under the guidance of F5 Escapes, http://f5escapes.com/ .
Its a journey to the Jog Falls, the second highest water falls in India. Looking forward to it, and then whip up my next post with pictures and scribbles.  Wish me luck.
