It’s been a while. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been writing blog posts. I have been. I’ve just been struggling to post them.
One of the things I love about solo travel is that it unearths things within you that you didn’t know were there. You are away from the distractions, false pretences and the need to impress. It is just you and yourself. It’s only been my second week and yet so much of myself was unearthed that it overflowed into my blog writing. Instead of writing for work I found that I was writing for therapy. This assault of emotions crippled me from doing my usual activities when entering a new city – finding museums and great places to eat. Instead, I drifted between my accommodation and a good coffee shop sifting through my personal issues. I may post those emotionally led accounts, not sure yet. I know that it would take courage to post those things.
Perhaps, this means that I’m not cut for solo travel. Or that I’m not cut for the digital nomad life. Who knows. It’s only my second week so conclusions won’t be made just yet. I’m not pushing myself to be a strong woman, I don’t have to impress anyone. One of the principles of self-love is to be kind to yourself. I know that I am capable of achieving the goals I set for this trip. I see the unearthing of these emotional ‘bones’ healthy for my self-love journey. What a great opportunity for them to pop up in a beautiful country! I think the constant moving whilst experiment with location independence is good for me too.
Apart from that, the little that I did experience in my second week I have enjoyed. I met some good people, tried yoga and now have entered into the coffee zone of Colombia. I’m really impressed with the beauty of the country. No, I’m not trying to be corny like every guide book that says every country is beautiful. I haven’t travelled the whole world, but what I’ve seen so far, Colombia is truly a stunner. Even the photos I take don’t do this country justice because there are vistas I saw but I wasn’t quick enough to capture. I would recommend Colombia time and time again.
