An unravelling of sorts has taken place over these past two weeks as we found a slower rhythm, rewired our minds around fewer commitments and the openness ahead of us, let the post-long-haul flight flu demand our rest, took easy walks in beautiful lush parks, wandered laneways, explored Cambridge, chatted to locals who proudly showed us their gardens, patted cute dogs and spent time with friends. Such precious friends who have opened their homes to us so that they also feel like comforting places to return to amid our travels. Time is on our side for this adventure of extended travel. We are determined to keep a tranquil vibe to our movements, relishing the discovery of new places but also restraining ourselves from falling into the mode of conquering sightseeing at a manic pace. We seek to slip into local grooves, see the world, but also feel the world and awareness of ourselves and others within it,. I wonder what these 7 months will do to us. How much will we change? Our priorities, our dreams, our daily life habits? My typing fingers, grateful heart and cleared mind await the realisations, thoughts and moving stories that will come.
