In an attempt to find some peace I am actually in the Netherlands for a few weeks. I am still struggling with my energy management, so just not traveling is nice. Although, staying in one place for a long time turns out to be difficult … On a whim, I decided to visit family and get a breath of fresh air on Terschelling, an island in the North of the country. That morning- within 15 minutes- I booked a ticket, got dressed, threw some clothes in a suitcase and ran to the bus stop just in time to catch the bus and ferry. On the ferry I received a message from friends who had seen my Instagram post; they were on the neighboring island of Vlieland and as ‘proof’ even sent me a picture of my ferry they could see arriving in the distance! Because I only booked a one-way ticket, I was able to visit them for a few days. And when I felt like going back to Amsterdam, I booked another one-way ticket. No bus or train connection to Amsterdam? Just improvise a sign and start hitchhiking! These last-minute decisions and the adventurous ‘one-way’ way of traveling take me back to the Esther I was before I more or less lost myself in my relationship. Going back to that style of travel, I’m discovering my essence again.
I also did a ’30 vegan challenge’ in the last month to see if I could achieve a kind of ‘reset’.
At the end of the month, I’ll be going to a spiritual retreat in Spain and then on to France to a retreat in a castle to learn from an expert about Amazon book marketing. I’m really curious. I’ll tell you all about it in the next Inspiration Shot!
With my ’soul sister’ Daphne on Terschelling Island.
