Many people take vacations and travel during the summer months. I love to travel and do so often. Since my awakening, I find that travel soothes my soul and is good for my adventurous spirit. It's the middle of June and so far this year, I have traveled to Toronto, Boulder and Denver, Colorado three times and Atlanta, Georgia. Tomorrow I load my car up with my dogs; leave my cats behind and head back to Colorado and then fly to Toronto.
Though the drive to Colorado is long - 15.5 hours without a stop and 995.5 miles, I enjoy the trip immensely. In five years I have put 150,000 miles on my little Honda. I stop every two hours to stretch, empty one tank and fill up the other. Stopping gives Yoda and Karma a chance to stretch as well. Sometimes we even stop at a roadside lake to take a swim! I take two days to make this trip and have some amazing experiences with wildlife or humans along the way.
