“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” - Eleanor Roosevelt
These days, our schedule looks like this:
wake up and work for a few hours
check out of our hotel
get back on the road, do a hike and explore
drive to the next destination, find a place to sleep there
This has made us realize how little is really needed to feel satisfied and complete. As we continue on, I find myself narrowing down the clothes that I bring in to each hotel, and wanting to stay in the simplest of places. I'm definitely feeling that less is more, and that the original discomfort of picking up and moving each day is quickly feeling like the norm. It has kept each day fresh and exciting. Of course, I don't feel equally inspired in each place we visit - it's interesting how a place can affect you so much. A cross country trip like this would actually be a perfect way to find your soul city, or soul town to live in - the place that just feels right.
