I’m writing you while watching the sunrise over Sarti, Greece.
Most Americans visit the famous Greek islands when they travel here.
We decided to travel the mainland, and have been rewarded for taking the road less travelled.
We enjoyed: fewer tourists and almost no Americans, stunning views (at ancient Delphi), beautiful pebble beaches devoid of tourists, mountainous hiking as deep and mighty as the Grand Canyon (Vikos Gorge), and a slower pace of life with time to relax, reflect (and read some great books.)
See photos below.
My takeaway: Take time to recharge. The busier you are, the more important it is. You will notice the difference, and so will your people.
And continue to make less obvious choices in life, put yourself in new situations outside your typical comfort zone. If you do this you will continue to learn new things, especially about yourself…no matter your age.
Can you still surprise yourself?
I was surprised to learn that I could enjoy being a vegetarian, if I had the super high quality grilled vegetables and that we have enjoyed here every night. (It won’t happen, because I love my smoker too much, but now I know it could.)
