Diving Into Gokarna : An Unexpected Journey as a First Time Backpacker

A new world has opened up and you realize the horizon is just the beginning of adventure.

Arriving at the youth hostel, it took only a few hours to get into the vibe of "what plans next? Who knows, let's see?", with a smile and a shrug.

Days of adventure - watching the river and sea kiss on a desolate sandbar as the sun sneaks out of sight, giving in to hazy moonlight and a dusky twilight. A hidden thorny pathway leads us to a land of missing sandals, beautiful sea shells, lost starfish and dozens of sea urchins. Scooter rides through twisting roads with overhanging shrubs and tiny farms, a moment of distraction and a...

Sueño con fines de semana
visitando castillos
y durmiendo contigo,
con caminar por la arena
y dejar de escribirte poemas,
de robarte un beso
al anochecer,
mientras mi piel
buscas estremecer.

The poppies
Hardy enough
To grow from
Cement??!!
It can
Happen
I saw the magic
For myself.
Flowers
Have iron wills.

It might be the herb
The leaves
Packed
In a joint resting
Between my fingers.
Or the
Glass
Half filled
With single malt
That stares me
In the eye,
Resting on the table
Beside me.

It might be the pictures
That make me go crazy
Or is it the joint?
Or the drink?
Or our memories?
Whatever it is
Summed up in a picture.
They were your thoughts
Glowing in my face
When the light hit me
And there
In my picture
Were you
More than me.

Hello,

I’m finally home!!!!

It feels so good that I am home and I can relax after I get some newspaper for the guinea pig cage to clean them out.

I will say it’s a lot cooler here than in Florida but still happy to be home.

My aunt fed the guinea pigs while I was gone and I think she only cane once a day because they were out of hay when I got home and doesn’t look like she cleaned the cage, oh well. I will clean out the cage tonight.

Making plans to see my boyfriend tonight after he gets out of work which will be nice because I missed home the whole time I was gone.

Okay I’m going to relax for a bit then go out and get stuff for the guinea pigs and figure out food later.

Hello,

My family and I have stopped for the night in Elkton, MD and we are not far from the state line to Delaware.

I hope that we make it to New Hampshire tomorrow and not run into to much traffic.

Today took a lot longer but we hit work traffic and whatever else for traffic that came our way. It wasn’t fun but we made it and that is all that counts.

I talked to my boyfriend briefly today which made me smile but I do miss him a lot and want to be home to cuddle him. Soon I will get  that hopefully tomorrow night.

So it’s shortly after 9pm est and I will be in bed by 10:30pm. So I will say good night for now and will write again tomorrow.

Hello,

We stopped for gas but also we stopped at the Virginia welcome center. I’m in Virginia and getting closer to home but I think we will have to stop again tonight.

It would be wise to stop tonight because I like to relax and sleep at night and my grandfather cannot drive at night.

So it will take longer to get home but it’s better to be safe.

I miss my boyfriend a lot but will see him soon and just looking forward to being home.

Hopefully Kayden would like to see the Pikachu detective movie that is out next month, I would love to take him.

Not much else to write about, my grandfather wants to get a little further in Virginia so we are going to drive for a little bit.

I did drive ...

Mi amor es como un finde largo
que quisieras que transcurra despacio,
es suave como una brisa
que roza tu sonrisa,
es apasionado por la noche
cuando va buscando tu roce,
es como una canción que no te cansas de escuchar
porque la letra te lo hace recordar,
es como miles de palabras
que podrías escribir
pero que con solo sentirlo
serías feliz.

My Troubled Youth,

i was 15 years old and my brother, tony, was 16. we left home one weekend and ended up staying in a border town in mexico for two weeks. it all started when we met a couple of guys from laredo. they were looking for a ride back home and my brother’s friend, elise, promptly offered up her car. they requested that we first stop off in austin. it was the opposite direction of where they were headed but being the naïve teens that we were, we willingly drove them. the two guys ventured out to sell what they smuggled in from mexico. (apparently, the pills they had were a huge success in austin). meanwhile, elise’s car was having some issues and when the damn thing died, i had t...

Hello,

I like this paper because it’s so vibrant and colorful.

Today I am very tired, I didn’t want to get out of bed but I did because I have 2 jobs and I need to earn money to pay bills but I do wish I could have stayed in bed.

Work was ok today but still stressed out and want to sleep.

Good news is I started packing! It’s not a lot but it’s better than not packing. Need to get my overnight bag set first then the suitcase next.

I really want to stay home and not go to Florida, I know you may think I’m crazy for saying that but it’s how I feel.

Not much else is new but I did want to say that I may not write in letters everyday while on vacation but will try.

Going to bring my knittin...

Hello everyone! How are you? I’m hoping Monday is treating you well. I am trying to get stuff together because I’m going to Florida Friday morning.

I’m going with family and we are driving down so that means leaving very early Friday morning.

I haven’t packed anything and I need an overnight bag with all my needs which seems like a lot! I’m sure it’s not but I need to pack. Then pack my suitcase too.

It’s crazy because I’m also working both my jobs before leaving! I don’t have much time for anything and I need to clean out the guinea pig cage before we leave.

I did start getting laundry together to start washing tonight so I can dry it and then start packing.

So stay tuned on the adven...

Purpose

The world is so full of possibilities, both pretty and bad, which is exactly why existence is such a questionable quantity.
Never ending questions have always probed me ever since I remember, purpose, meaning, joy, freedom...? Just one worded questions.
The deeper I tried to delve, the farther away they seemed to sail.
Choice, I realised was the one thing which could help us row through the ocean of possibilities...and merrily so.
I realised the more we travel the more we see, the more we see, within.
Travelling is unraveling inside and out too. A writer keeps is secrets between his/her words and the traveller keeps his/her stories within their eyes.

So read and travel is what...

Hace 6 años
tu ciudad no conocía,
y ahora cada calle y plaza que recorres,
son las que yo cruzaré algún día.

Cada parque, el Bioparc
o la Albufera
son sitios que ahora sólo están en
la mente de una viajera,
pero que pronto serán
los recuerdos de una pareja.

Las Fallas veré
junto a ti, mi Javier,
me asombraré con cada figura
tan bien montada,
sonreiré y te miraré
cuando vea alguna enamorada.

De tu mano iría
y tú serías mi familia
y tu ciudad,
...se volvería la mía.

I wish I could carry your heart
In my hand
Or the pocket
Of my shirt
Where it embraces
Mine
Through a curtain
Of translucent skin.

I wish I could keep your heart
Somewhere
In the drawer
Of my study table
Or between the pages
Of my favorite
Poetry book

I wish I could place your heart
Under the pillow
While I went to sleep
Or just thought about
You,
At night;
Sometimes during day,
Or if I could just
Place it
On the desk
In my classroom
On the notebook
And pen down stories
And poems
About how it breaks
And how it bleeds.

I wish I could have your heart
If not your soul
I wish I could have your heart
If not you.

On angel's wings you were taken away
but in my heart you will always stay.
I will hear your whispers
in the tallest trees
feel your love in that gentle breeze.
And when I find, I miss you the most
inside our sweet memories
I will hold you close.
You are a pure soul watching over me
with all comfort and blessing you bring,   
to embrace my heart and hold it close
forever on those angel's wings.

                                         beautifully painful
