Two weeks after ending my 15-month career break, I met Elizabeth Gilbert, author of “Eat, Pray, Love,” at the Art of New Creation workshop. You may have heard that you should never meet your heroes, but my encounter was a sobering experience in the art of gracefully setting boundaries.
My career break was a period marked by moments of sheer enchantment, heartbreaking sadness, mental confusion, wins, losses, emotional freedom, and spiritual awakenings. Here’s a wrap-up of the valuable lessons I learned.
The fabulous 4Monster Hiking Daypack is lightweight, compact, sturdy, and water-resistant. I take it on day hikes, beach outings, and city tours.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a captivating blend of East and West, where the legacies of the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires create a unique cultural backdrop. With emerald rivers, lush mountains, and awe-inspiring waterfalls, nature reveals itself as a breathtaking spectacle. The scars of the 1990s Balkan Wars are still visible, but B&H has an authentic vibrancy that will shatter stereotypes. During my seven days of solo exploration, cosmopolitan Sarajevo, scenic Mostar, religious Medjugorje, and ancient countryside villages left me with an indelible positive impression.
I shamelessly confess: I love being in pictures and found the perfect travel accessory for solo travelers: the ATUMTEK Bluetooth Selfie Stick Tripod. It’s a two-in-one selfie stick and tripod that will beautifully capture your moments of bliss while you’re on the road.
