I both admired and envied the bus driver, for making me feel safe on that long climb over the mountain and for having the privilege of driving everyday in such a spectacular and beautiful place.
I walked through the sleepy village to Kalikalos standing on the right side of the road; a large house with terraced gardens built in a traditional local style. It was inviting and yet a little scary, as it was so far away from my normal life.
It felt right be a bit afraid because to me this means I feel challenged a state I had not enjoyed for some years as my life rolled into a very small comfort zone that I had been reluctant to leave. However, when your comfort zone becomes a prison and you close yourself to most possibilities you may as well curl up and die…..This journey was to mark my return to life, to challenge, to an open heart and mind, and what a spectacular way to start.
