A Spiritual Journey

Okay I have to admit so many days without the ocean...and I'm starting to do it a little tough, or at least crave some ocean! So I might hit the road soon. Had lunch with some locals yesterday- they were really nice and hospitable but I'm not such a fan of the town. I realise that this trip-holiday was much warranted - it's a pretty solitary reflective- get things together time...but also I am meeting the very specific people that I need to discuss the deep and meaningful things of life with....somehow it is so easy to find people that can when you get out of the city...

I thought you were there to stay, kiddo.
Did you not pack enough with you on this trip? tsk tsk tsk (and not sarcastically, either) !

Not my experience here, Zhen. The three favourite topics among British country folk seem to be the Hunt Ball, expensive cars, and TV soaps. It's a crowded little island. I've found that you're much more likely to get deep and meaningful conversations among poor people in inner city areas.

It sounds more like an exploration or adventure than a trip/holiday :) Good that your enjoying yourself even though your missing the ocean. It amazes me that people can live in cities away from the ocean. I feel that I would go crazy or die. The ocean seems as essential as breathing.
