So, I think I’ve taken a turn a bit on this trip.  I am yearning for some more meaningful experiences.

The “backpacker circuit” is wonderful and great, but I am also finding that it does not quite suit me. I think in some ways I am a bit too old to be considered the ideal Lonely Planet backpacker.  At first, the party places and the must-do’s seemed appealing.  However, as time has passed, they are not at all what I am looking for.  While in some ways, I am not even certain what I am looking for, I do know that I am craving more authentic ways to connect with the people in the places I am.  Maybe some retreats, classes and volunteering are in the near future.

In the mean time, I read this article on traveling on NPR and felt inspired.

I would love to hear any suggestions or tips you have on ways to deepen my experience and make it more meaningful. Please feel free to comment below or email me.
