After I decided to leave, I wanted to go immediatly, but where, and how? I didn’t have to think long about this. My time at Ecolonie was lovely. The surroundings, the people, the rest, the feeling of harmony. There I was happy. I’ll go there again , but there’s more initiatives where people work in harmony with nature and where people live with respect for each other. I heard stories about Spain and Portugal that really got me exited too, so I decided to go visit these countries as well.
I’ll be traveling by bike. The speed on a bike is so slow, so I can really feel connected with my surroundings. It is a good way to really feel the land. Besides, it’ll be a physical challenge to cycle all those km’s in a southern direction. Pedalling my way up hills to ride down again on the other side, along with with the sound of the wind rushing by my ears, and of course , cycling is a pretty durable way of traveling!
The idea is, to find people into couchsurfing, so I can meet new interesting people, and of course to enjoy a good night of rest. Which is a good start for the next day on the road.
I found Spring is a nice time to go out and start my new way of living. Just as nature starts to slowly show it’s beauty again after a period of quietness and rest, it’s time for me to start the adventure after a period of preparation and inner work.
