The last days

Posted by:

I’m feeling counter productive considering I haven’t been to yoga at all since last week. I’ve been extremely busy with clients since Monday and filling in open gaps with errands to banks, foreign exchange, pharmacy, shops and so on.

The spare bedroom is sprawled with clothing and travel goodies, and the heaps look small compared to what you’d expect to travel with for two months. I’ve kept everything sparse and light weight not only because it’ll be easier to carry but because I don’t think I need much. Yoga mats will be supplied by the Ashram and anything else I need will be available in Rishikesh shops.

My nerves are not quite in tact as everything else. Time seems to have come and gone remarkably fast and with just two days to go I’m anxious and excited. The plane leaves at 07h00 on Friday morning so I’m expecting little sleep tomorrow night.

My last goodbye’s to family and friends have diminished over the weeks and now it’s time to embrace the challenges and the adventure of a lifetime!

The last leg of the backpacking portion of the trip will take me to Mumbai and I’m hoping to settle there for a few days and visit some retirement villages to do some much needed charity work offering my specialist health and beauty treatments with specific emphasis on foot care.

From there it’ll be market shopping – my absolute favourite past time, in Mumbai and Delhi before I return home.

Thank you to all my friends, family and clients for their enthusiasm and support this year. Without all of you this would not be possible. I hope to come home fulfilled and ready to take on the world.

The Divine in me bows down and acknowledges the Divine in each and every one of you, Namaste!
