After the writing retreat in Curaçao, as soon as I was healthy enough to travel, I flew to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, for the Dynamite Circle conference. While I had looked forward to inspiring sessions with my location independent entrepreneurial friends, I spent most of my days in bed. Every now and then I had enough energy to chat for half an hour over tea with someone, but afterward I had to take a nap again. Still, I enjoyed Mexico: a walk along the beach early in the morning before it got too hot, the super tasty food, and at the end of my stay I was able to give a reverse writing workshop and experience some of the events at the conference.
I love Latin America, I feel at home. I once did my anthropology thesis in Yucatan researching the medicinal plants used by the Maya. I speak the language, know the culture, history, and religion and I connect with the people. Another place where I really feel at home.
This week I am flying back to Europe for my upcoming events in Mallorca and Italy. On my stopover in Miami, I am spending a few days with my dad, my brother and sister, and the new caretaker. Family time, quality time. It feels like I can enjoy that more after the experiences of the past few weeks, with the new insights and renewed energy.
