I feel like it’s about time to send out an update on my movements. Because for the first time in a long time, there is movement. And words to share about my time at Earth Frequency festival!
As winter began to etch its way into Melbourne, I felt restless and cold. If you don’t know me, you’ll soon find out that I just don’t do well in the cold. My skin dries out, the light from my eyes fades and I struggle to stay warm due to having poor circulation in my hands and feet.
Basically, I do not like it.

When I bought my ticket two weeks prior to Glowfest, there were so many unknowns. Firstly, I hadn’t been to a festival in over a year due to COVID-19, would I remember what to do? I’d also never been to a Burning Man-style event where you had to bring everything yourself (no food vendors).
But I found my feet and packed my little yellow convertible, Daffodil, full of camping gear, snacks and toys to light on fire and did the long, two-day drive from Melbourne to Waves Campground in Crescent Head, NSW. Down a bumpy, dusty road where phone signal was slowly lost, we were greeted at the driveway by colourful humans welcoming us to Glowfest.
I entered into a magical, calm world. The opening ceremony set the tone of respect, playfulness and growth together. Traditional owners of the land came and blessed us in a smoke ceremony in front of a magical bus, painted with a rabbit unicorn on the side and a DJ set up the top.
Whatever we were in for, I was excited.

I combined all my favourite bits from previous blog posts about travelling and put them all in a neat little article.
I wrote this for Intuitive Wisdom, a wonderful site by Laura all about feeling full and gooey inside.
You can read my article here, but here’s a little taste as well:

It’s been probably the longest I’ve ever gone between blog posts. Why? Well, it’s obvious, isn’t it? I’m not travelling. I’m staying at home and pressing pause on life.
I’ve been trying to keep warm – an issue that I haven’t had to worry about in a very long time. I’m not working so, therefore, not saving. So it’s really just downtime. Just time to do puzzles, listen to podcasts and watch movies.
And that’s ok.

My time in Nicaragua has come to a close and it’s provided me with a lot of time for reflection. As leaving a place always does, I start to feel incredibly nostalgic for where I am and what I’ll miss at both Surfing Turtle Lodge and Carpe Diem.

I’m still in Nicaragua and I’m still in the paradise called Surfing Turtle Lodge. My days are still much the same as what I described in my last post with only a few minor changes.

I’m done. Finished. I’m outa here! Goodbye, good luck and Godspeed to everyone in the states. I’m finally leaving. It’s been a wild adventure here. I’ve seen a lot of this country from California to New York and so many of the beautiful people that live here. But I know that this is a country that I don’t want to be in anymore.
I want to go where people don’t speak English, where every day is a little bit of a battle for some reason. A place where I’m challenged day to day by myself and by the environment around me. Most importantly, I want to be warm again. That place will be Nicaragua.

This is my second Christmas away from home. Last year I spend my time in Pai, spinning fire and eating way too much food. This year, I got an all American Christmas. Come to think of it, I did a lot of the same things as last year.

Let’s start here. New Mexico was never on my list of places to visit if I’m honest. The reason I came here was because Rhea, a girl a met in India 4 years ago, saw that I was in the states and invited me to come stay with her. I looked at a map (as my geography of the United States is pretty average) and saw that from Arizona to Colorado, New Mexico is kind of on the way.

Sitting on the train to New Mexico from Flagstaff, I have some time to sit and write.
Time has really escaped me during the last few weeks. It feels as though each day has melted into one another. Which is really beautiful, but also invites a feeling of being slightly concerned too. Concerned about what I’m doing and if I’m simply just “wasting time” instead of doing something for the benefit of a career or personal development.
But it has also been really nice to slow down and relax.
