Since our last trip to the US when we were able to visit San Francisco, we have been excited to visit more of the West Coast. As it turned out, my old friend Zeia was getting married in Seattle, providing a fantastic excuse to explore a small part of the pacific northwest.
Since I was a kid I have loved Pink Floyd. Seeing Roger Waters perform a classic set from Pink Floyd as well as selections of his new work, I really started thinking about what the music means to me and how much of it speaks very clearly to our times.
This spring seems to be a time of reunions. We were able to see Carl in Stockholm a few weeks back, just the other weekend Abe took us around Kosovo, and this past weekend, I was able to meet up with Natalie in Cologne.
It is not that often when we travel that we are immersed in something completely new or foreign. We were therefore very excited when an old friend of mine invited us to visit him in Kosovo where he recently relocated.
Nearly ten years ago, we were fortunate enough to be invited to Carl’s wedding. Last weekend, nearly ten years after the wedding, we enjoyed a lunch together with a stunning view of the old town of Stockholm and that familiarity and connection hadn’t diminished. But where had the ten years gone?
This year for our regular escape from winter we boarded the plane truly ignorant of our destination of Costa Rica, but quickly learned about this fascinating, friendly, and colorful country. Discovery truly is bliss.
