We can be changed by many things; travel being one of them. When travel is combined with wholehearted openness to the new, the change within can be profound. When travel and openness are combined with the force of love, the change within is life altering. Irreversible. Hold-onto-your-hat-you-will-never-be-the-same. And you will be so damn glad.
So when the stars aligned and courage was gathered, the Gypsy King of Babylon sent his magic carpet to fly me half way around the world. I got on. I flew. I landed in a strange paradise. I was changed from the first breath of salted air. Now, after almost 4 days of basking in the warmth of Turkish delight and the protective force of Gypsy love, if you thought you knew me, you no longer do. I, too, no longer know myself. And I am so damn glad.
