I had a 10 day journey that took me from Paris, to Stiges, then Barcelona, and finally Madrid. It was amazing! As my jet lag wears off, I have these reflections on my trip:
- It was affirmed to me that as humans, we are more alike than we are different. Our "culture" just flavors the way our common human nature is manifested.
- I felt an ancestral connection to Spain. These streets were traveled by my ancestors, These beautiful cities were build by my ancestors. I don't care if it sounds sentimental. I could live there tomorrow and fine a sense of home.
- The gene pool is thick! I kept seeing the faces that resembled my family and friends while walking the streets of Spain.
- On several occasions while my buddy and tour guide extraordinaire Rey slept in a little longer, I got dressed and headed out into the unknown streets of Paris by myslef, using the sun as my compass. Good to know the adventurer in me is still alive.
I am grateful for being able to have this experience. God willing my passport will acquire many more stamps!
