When I was 26, I took a standby flight to London and never returned. I had a lot of adventure and went to over 60 countries, learned some languages and had a great time. I sort of define myself as a traveller, but really I've been in Byron Bay so long now I'm not sure that is valid.
I started my own business thinking it would lead to travel, but it's done the opposite - I became tied to my computer and phone. When my business was really successful I let it consume me. Then, I had a break where I lost interest. I went away for 6 months and it ticked along. I came back and worked it some with much less passion. Now, we're both sustaining each other sort of.
I like books and movies. I like to play at sports. Currently re-discovering surfing and was running 3 times a week and seem to have gone off that. Would like to dance more and in the perfect world I would do something like walk from Varanasi to Rishikesh or perhaps 'that' trail going from France to Spain. I recently did some hardcore wilderness walks and that was good, but I walked alone and think it would be better to have more people contact and worry less about carrying a lot of water. I'm also considering a taking 6 months and doing a ski season in Colorado (not sure my knees will agree).
I would like to meet someone and have a causal relationship that may or may not go anywhere long term. In fact, I need to rediscover my sexuality in a happy, healthy and fun way. I would like to kiss someone passionately in the park and have the world around me disappear... to feel the tingle of excitement and touch of a woman... to get lost in the scent and passion. To learn something about tantra and feel how life can be elevated in those rare moments of discovery.
I'm coming out of a 20 year relationship. We have a fairly good ongoing relstionship and with 2 teenagers we still talk a bit. The kids both live with her while I get my living space sorted. My oldest one plans to travel for a year soon when she finishes high school. Lucky girl has Dutch and US passports and Australian Residence. My kids are very important to me.
Yeah... life is complicated. There is what you have and what you want, fixing what is broken, finding new and working with the cards life has dealt you.
