Why You Should Grab Your Passport and Go

Traveling is a springboard to spiritual growth!


I’m ba-ack! Back from vacation in Malta.

It was so nice to wake up with a little munchkin in my face (my sweet niece), chill out with family each day (when does that happen anymore?) and to see such unique beauty around me – the scene of much movie magic, including Game of Thrones in case you’re a fascinated fan like me!

Come follow me and check out my pictures on Instagram!

I had so much fun recording today’s podcast because I took a trip down memory lane – the good one. ;)

I recalled being bit by the travel bug for the first time (oh, how it hurt so good!) and my European adventures since.

I was reminded of how sacred traveling is to me and how much I grew because of those experiences.

Traveling can really be a springboard for spiritual growth.

There’s nothing more humbling than being out of your comfort zone, looking to others for help, and realizing what a small part of this vast universe you really are.

When I’m walking around NYC, I feel like I’m wearing a sign that says, “Ask me!” because I get a lot of inquiries for directions.

I can’t lie – it feels good. Not just to help someone, but because for so long I didn’t even know where I was going! Though if you see me in the West Village, I’m likely to ask you for directions…

When you’re off of your own turf, you’re vulnerable. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You have to be open.

And depending on where you are, you may even have to attempt to speak another language. Talk about a humbling experience!

But it’s all good, because usually when your ego takes a blow, that’s when you grow. ;)

And after all, isn’t that what we’re here for?

So, if you want to get on the fast track to personal growth, I highly recommend getting out of your comfort – and time – zone.

Here’s one (sure to be incredible) way you can do that.

My friend Cassandra Santoro, founder of Travel Italian Style (and fellow Sicilian), shares a love of the often unpredictable and life-changing experiences that can come from traveling.

Her story is inspiring and she sets the mood for joy and personal growth by creating one-of-a-kind tours.

Only a few spots remain on her two upcoming fall tours. The one I want to bring your attention to is the Women’s Empowerment Tour – think Under the Tuscan Sun.

We’re talking staying in a 19th century residence in the Tuscan Hills, day trips to Florence and the countryside, riding a Vespa, a flower workshop, journaling, cooking class, thermal spa, yoga, meditation, eating fresh and delicious food, connecting with other like-minded women and most importantly - yourself…

Heck, I have no idea at this point why I’m not going! ;)

If this is giving you butterflies, you owe it to yourself to check it out. If you think it’d be perfect for someone you know, by all mean tell her about it! Women’s Tuscany Tour

I’m going more in depth about studying abroad, backpacking through Europe, and how traveling changed me, so have a listen and let me know what you think of today’s podcast!
