Modern humans are a strange lot, and to be honest, sometimes I feel like an alien in human skin, because it’s difficult for me to understand why we choose to live the way we do. Our cities are jam-packed and everyone’s constantly on the move, speeding this way and that, and with that lifestyle comes a constant noise and feelings of anxiety, stress, and sometimes much worse. When I’m in a city, I feel it, the tension, being surrounded by clusters of people and cars and racket, and chaos. You almost can’t hear yourself think. There’s little time for self-reflection and inner journeys, and there’s little respite for one’s own peace of mind.
There are so many different places to check out along the California coast line. From stopping by the different beaches, going to famous restaurants, and visiting other famous landmarks, California offers an innumerable amount of things to do. So what is our favorite thing to do in the state that seemingly has everything? Whale watching.
Travelling can be both exhilarating and hectic. Before you start dreaming of the beaches in Seychelles or the culture of India, there’s the planning stage of your travel journey. Unless you want to avoid unpleasant experiences during or even before your travels, you have to make sure that all your bases are covered.
Winter is a time where most people stay indoors, avoid the cold weather, the snow, and simply hibernate the season away, but for me, it’s a mixture of extremes. I do tend to hibernate for the holidays, spending time with family, friends and loved ones, yet I also try to always plan a trip that takes me out into the winter wilderness. No, it’s not because I’m mad, crazed or delusional, but mainly because I find it extremely peaceful.
As I grow older, and wiser with experience, I am drawn to what is more natural and that goes beyond food. For the past few years, I’ve studied greatly the art of herbal medicine, and in my studies, nothing stands above the natural plant that a medicine or remedy is derived from, which is why when it comes to modern medicines, I will always opt for the natural remedy over the artificial pharmaceutical. Because not only are they gentler, they have less side effects, and to be real, medicine began with plants. Modern medicine has been around for 200 some years, while herbal medicine has been around since the dawn of time. And through my studies and herbalist experience, nothing is truer.
I’m a huge fan of road trips… HUGE FAN! Road tripping a destination, especially an international place is one of the most exciting, intimate, and interesting things you can possible do. You can come and go as you please, and you can go with the flow, staying in a place longer because you met really great locals, or you can move along if something doesn’t feel quite right.
