"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." ― Dr. Seuss
I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day and were able to share love with others and inwards toward yourself too. This weekend I happened upon this video of Thich Nhat Hahn speaking about loneliness and connection at a perfect time to reflect on these notions, during a holiday about love. I hope you watch the video and would like to hear what you think.
While I'm far less interested in the Super Bowl when the Steelers aren't playing, I still watched for the commercials and half time, of course. Anyone else find it weird that it's someone's responsibility to squirt water from a bottle into a player's mouth through his helmet during the game when they're thirsty? I have so many questions about how that came to be. I digress. I noticed Sunday that Travel was a big Super Bowl commercials theme, and it made me so happy to see! Turkish Air and Delta had spots, and although you shouldn't be using Expedia or Booking.com (unless you're okay with getting bumped from your hotel, not having any personal contacts when things go wrong, etc.), they had great commercials! Heck, if Ewan McGregor from Expedia's commercial came with the package, I'd book with Expedia too. I loved how the travel ads were presented, full of excitement and relief to return to travel, and considering where we were a year ago, it was really moving to see ads like that again.
Everyone's eager to travel again, and the inquiries and bookings coming in are proof of that! I've been booking Hawaii, Italy, Cancun, the Florida Keys and Hershey, PA, and inquiries this week include Georgia (the country), Iceland, and a NYC group trip for an arts center in Pennsylvania. It feels amazing to help take the time and energy burden from you as we plan some amazing adventures together - tailored just for you, your unique interests, and how you want to feel on your journey.
