Operation Travel Bug is in full swing
Sunsets and Star Jumps
Going gangbusters on my travel resolution this year!
I started 2018 abroad, as I often do, in the Philippines and Singapore. In February I was in Denmark. April and May were all South in Portugal and Spain. And just now I have returned from Greece.
And what do these all have in common? Sunshine and Sunsets!!!!
Travel is so important for me, as is sunshine. I have found that I can only truly unwind if I take myself out of the country.
It’s so important to do and experience something new, it really helps to get you looking outward rather than inward. When you're in your everyday, it's easy to get caught up in your internal monologue. When you experience new things, new people, new tastes and smells, it opens you up to all sorts of wonderful things and let's you turn down the volume on that internal voice for a bit.
Sunsets have a very important effect on me too. Watching a sunset, the slow and sometimes fast, procession of the sun crawling towards the horizon makes all the mundane stresses of life feel a little less critical.
Here are some of my favourite moments from my recent trips.

We talk a lot about preparation and reducing risk of injury, but what does all that look like in real life? Well, in my case, it looks like cramming too much stuff in and not taking a moment to breathe. And sometimes, the end result is a preventable injury.
