I call my website Guide Book For Life because I intend to show and describe my experiences in order to offer some insight into what can happen when one wanders around the world when one has just begun to travel. Inspiration for others who have been traveling may also be found here because I did make some interesting mistakes in my life.. My travel and exploration in this world is really just a metaphor for the travels of the soul from immaturity to maturity to eternity (I hope.) This is a life long pursuit.
My page PRACTICAL THINGS will include some small amount of what I go through when planning vacations. I use my trip to New York City as an example of how I plan my trips.
I call the site "WHAT I SEE FROM MOUNTAIN TO SEA" because I have no favorite kind of excursion, I just love traveling. I call myself "Addicted to travel and exploring". As my mind searches for new experiences in new places, my soul searches for the eternal bliss. Both of these journeys will be hinted at in this website.
I would like to share my experiences and thoughts while traveling. Maybe I can provide you with some examples of what NOT to do while traveling. I sure made lots of mistakes while traveling. There may even be a few things done right! 😄 Actually, My complete story will be here eventually but it is a slow proccess to gather all of my journals together and include what may be useful to those who plan to travel to the few places where I have been (18 countries so far). I really hope I can give a few travel tips or inspiration from the experiences that I have had. I really love travel and I hope to share that love with others. I live day by day, remaining in a constant mode of survival. I believe the world is a manifestaion of Heaven so the more I explore THIS world, the more I should know THAT world.
I guess my website can be called:
MY VERSION OF THE SEARCH FOR THE HOLY GRAIL.
Of kings and queens, of palaces and castles, of mountains and lakes, of hotels and restaurants, of a life long spiritual quest, all this and more will be found on this website.
My website page "MY STORY IN POETRY" will give some hints of this search which is a search for spirtitual fulfillment.
Let me apologize right now for my unprofessional, amateurish poetry and photography. I am attempting something here that I never learned how to do. I am just doing it. I guess this website is my amateurish attempt at a Travel Blog but it is just as much a description of my souls' journey through life as a whole. My writing is not very logical. I write as I think. I have no training as a writer and I certainly am not a littérateur by any means so I can only hope and dream some of you can bear with me and peruse these pages because I do have a lot to share. I really do not know how to discern what material is interesting to others so I am just reporting what I experience on THE JOURNEY. It has been said:
"It is better to write for oneself and have no public than to write for the public and have no self."
