doggy-paddling in the big cities

*the coolness and composure of a tree…I keep telling myself*

Navigate my way through Bogota, Calcutta, Madrid, Bangkok and Rio de Janeiro…no prob!

Chicago and St. Louis?

My wrists hurt from prolonged and stressed clenching of the steering wheel.

Who knew that the States was never (in the first place) my comfort zone? The surprise of these self-realizations keep me kickin’ and afloat.

Luckily, the struggle is refreshing. And for now I must go back to swimming.

But I’ll be back tonight with the reflections I’ve neglected to type.

*sol bows her “namaste” and gratitude to World Nomads Travel Insurance, ThinkHost and MercuryFrog for their ever-supporting roles in the realization of her dream.

    Solbeam.. stumbled upon your blog via clicking on one of your fantastic photos on Fotki.. Odd how a random connection leads things connect in this interconnected world. Love your blog, photos and general attitude to life. It was a bit of a odd shock to discover that you are in Boulder, so close to the Native Berthoud Colorado I, as of monday find myself in. I say odd because I just quit my job (last week) and security as as a teacher in Sweden to see what life has to offer this dude of the road..

    Many happy travels..
