Day 121-The Unpredictability of Traveling

Cape Town

[Victoria Luxury Lodge & Spa]

You know it’s going to be a good day when you get to indulge in a sprinkled cupcake for breakfast!

What I love most about traveling is the unpredictability of what’s next to come. Everyday is a new adventure. You never fully know where you will end up or who you will meet. A few days ago, I was a dirty backpacker without a clean shower or bed. Today, I am a proper young lady in the city with one of my best friends at a luxury spa in Cape Town.

Adaptability and appreciation are two big lessons here. As humans, we are all able to adapt to new conditions and environments. The standards that society has created are illusions where you become accustomed to a certain level of comfort. Even if I am showering out of a 1/2 mm hose in a puddle of dirt, I am still appreciative of the fact that I have relatively “clean” water to wash with. It’s honestly not the end of the world and you really get used to cold showers! As much as I love getting pampered at the spa, I miss being out there in the wilderness where you find happiness in the simplest things. Learn to appreciate all that you have, whether it is considered good or bad in your books. The more out of your comfort zone, the better!
