The journey stretches out ahead of me

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain

Buen Camino, peregrinos!

I have arrived back in the UK and I am sitting at my desk for the first time in over two weeks.

My kids thought that I had ‘fallen off the planet’ (their words) – no facebook posts, no texts, no calls, no emails, no tweets, no blog posts.

How often do we do this anymore, disappear on a trip for a couple of weeks and stay in the moment?

Getting connected is not always about the digital media that we access on a daily basis; the internet and social media are useful tools, but it is nice to know that there is still an alternative out there.

Whilst away, I did record my experiences in a notebook and I will be sharing my experiences, retrospectively, in the next couple of weeks.
