By the end of this week, I will be giving blood while digging my feet in the sand and listening to music. I will go on daily walks, be sprinkled with ashes and eat yummy salads on the grass.
I recently decided to spontaneously add a mystery destination to my round-the-world itinerary. For a large number of subscribers, this is a far away and exotic location for many of you (“exotic” in the sense that you haven’t ventured to this part of the world, and you really must!); it is also very far away for me! But let me tell you, there is no place like it!
I began this particular trek on the morning of July 13, with my sad departure from Montisi, Italy (a very small Tuscan village, where I lived for 34 days without a car, train or bus! This will be the subject of future posts). Soon I will be arriving in another country on another continent! I am especially excited about visiting this mystery destination, as I had no intention of traveling there during my world tour, and for the first time in my life, I will have the opportunity to experience this very special place in a unique way!
Without giving any more hints, who can guess where I am headed? And for bonus points, what am I referring to in my first sentence? (This might be a toughie!)
For the first person who successfully guesses this mystery destination, I will send them a REAL postcard somewhere from my travels! (When was the last time you received a postcard?) Now go for it, take a wild guess (in the comments section below)! And be sure to check back to this blog post over the coming days for responses and additional hints.
NOTE: If you already know the destination as a result of private communications, please respectfully refrain from “guessing.”
Stay tuned to find about my upcoming mystery destination (and many more adventures to share!)
