The White Sands National Monument near the town of Alamogordo, New Mexico is one hell of a cool experience. When you’re driving into White Sands, you’re greeted with a park attendant, and from there, you are free to drive where you can, on pavement, as well as wetted and flattened sand paths. Once you park, it’s up to you as to where you will go. You can walk through the valleys, between the dunes, along designated walking paths, or you can try your luck at running up one of sand waves. The entire area is rather large, so it’s very easy to get turned around and lost, and in that regard, venturing too far into the sands can be a dangerous prospect. The air is dry, but very hot here, and without an ample supply of water, I would never suggest venturing off too far. Definitely take advantage of a compass, if you decide to wander a bit – Matt and I visited the region in April of 2014, and even though the temperatures were quite decent, the White Sands felt cool to the touch, but since the air was dry, and the sand reflected the heat of the sun, it felt like a slow cooker, or a sauna rather.

The Biltmore Estate which is located in Asheville, North Carolina is known all over the world. The 175,000 square foot home has intrigued many people through-out its lifetime. It is actually the largest home in America. It was built in just about five years and has been seen in several Hollywood films! In 1956 the house was evacuated by the Vanderbilt family and turned into a house museum. From then on tourists were able to visit the home more often. In fact Biltmore Estate is open year round. But, one of the most popular times to visit is during the holiday season.

A journey can be as simple as a traditional rite of passage, and as monumental as a life changing, soul empowering path. For me, my European trip of 2013 changed me, tremendously. It took me, and left me alone, with only myself, as I am, without barrier or judgement, nor ego. Once raw and unsheltered, I realized so many beautiful harmonies and jives of this world, as well as the meaning of life, and I knew exactly what I wanted out of my time here. There were points of agony, and tinges of grief, because when all began to clear, I could perceive who I was – my short fallings and potentials were evident to me. And even though moments like that of a soft trauma, came and went, a new day always prevailed. My travels refined me, softening my angers, tearing away my judgements, and dictating away my confusions and my complexities – little was unclear about my life, my past traumas and defining moments were relived, slowly and with pain, but there always was victory, through hope and compassion. As compassion came and went, understanding was left in the wake.
