I greeted last spring in Austin, Texas with someone I loved very much. That trip feels like a memory of a past life, given how much has changed since then. From Switzerland to Israel, Russia to Colombia, and finally landing in Georgia. Euphoria to heartbreak to disorientation to fulfillment, and just about everything in between.
Along the way, there’s been at least one constant in my life, and that has been Soulshine Traveler. Writing here has cushioned the falls and sweetened the victories. It has required me to organize my thoughts, my words, and my photographs. To find patterns, dig into emotions, and lean into discomfort.
A few days ago, Soulshine Traveler gained its 3,000th follower. In celebration of the awesome community we have all built within this site, I’d like to return the love and give a few gifts.
First, a gift of three books to a random reader!
