Traveling is not always as rosy as it seems. Don’t get me wrong this is not some kind of rant about traveling. It is amazing to go out there and explore the world, see new places and learn more about different cultures. Some experiences are just not that rosy and fun but the good thing about is that you always have the choice to grow as a person from these experiences. These are my worst travel moments from my trip to South East-Asia:
Worst travel moments of 2016
2016 was one of the most transformational years of my life. The most beautiful year but in a spiritual way it was really heavy. In terms of numerology, this 9-year was all about cleansing our karma and letting go of the things that no longer serve you. 2017 is going to be about new beginnings and manifestations.
Cuddling a gravel path in Malaysia
I love riding the motorbike. It gives you a powerful feeling of being free. The way the wind blows through your hair, to get lost. To conquer amazing roads in the most deserted places. It’s such a good way to explore a country and end up at random places. I did the most amazing road trips and it always felt like I was one with the road. But in Malaysia I needed to learn the hard way. My motorbike accident in Langkawi woke me up and I ended up having 7 stitches in my knees. I had to recover for a long time and learn how to walk properly again. This accident was something that I couldn’t have foreseen. I believe it needed to happen to wake me up. Everything after that fall felt like a deja vu.
Lesson learned – Be grounded
I never experienced so much pain in my life and I really had to learn how to keep a positive mind. I think the accident happened because I was just going to fast in life and I believe that I just got pulled back. It was like life was saying to me: You better slow down girl, be aware of what is going on and slow down. Come back to earth haha.
At the end it was one of the biggest revelations and blessings I had this year. Stay grounded and present. Even after the worst thing that could of happend to me I still continued with my travels. I wear my scars proudly, because it transformed my life in every possible way.
The feeling of being lost
There were times when I felt completely lost because I felt like I had no sense of direction in life. All the decisions I could make were kind of scary some times. Where should I go next? Why am I even traveling? I should be looking for a stable job to get a stable income right now. All these thoughts running through my head. I think I just wasn’t ready to unplug from the matrix.
Lesson learned – The present moment is all there is
When you travel you have to take responsibility for you own life. Every step you take as a solo traveler is mostly based on the choices you make. I realized that every time I felt this feeling of being lost it was just a reminder that it is totally fine to not know what way you are heading because we don’t even know what tomorrow will bring. Time is a illusion, all we have is this moment and we are going from one moment to another. This made me realize that I am the co creator of my own life. All I have to do is see my own potential and know that ‘here’ is exactly where I need to be.
