Adventures New

Embrace the daring adventure your life was supposed to be.

I like the sea and great beaches, particularly in the warm, blue Mediterranean.

Having recently returned from having a great time on the Mediterranean Island of Crete, (which has the longest history and the oldest civilisation in Europe), I decided it was time to look for a new adventure.

So, I’ve found a trip which involves an intensive ‘Wisdom Retreat’ with the catchy tag-line of From Chaos to Coherence ~ The Power To Thrive In Life Extremes.  This retreat is to be lead by the New Age author Gregg Braden, and takes place in the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, in New Mexico.

The hotel looks great, and the circular pool looks fabulous.

I’ve never been to New Mexico, especially not to a place that’s a 5,280 foot high desert valley.  The pre-reading for this retreat includes lots of stuff about how to be comfortable and survive while I’m out in the desert…..  It all sounds adventurous, educational, and fun.

And, I wanted to see my friend in California again ~ better known as ‘The Girl Riding Shotgun.

Ergo, I’m flying out to Orange County to spend a few days on the Californian beaches, and then flying to Albuqureque, and driving to the Hyatt where the retreat is being held.

It might have been fun to take the 800 mile road trip from California to New Mexico, but this time that was just not going to work.  So, I’ll get to experience all the delights of American short-haul flying, probably in a puddle-jumper.

This trip is not for a while yet, and I am really looking forward t it.  I’ll tell you all about it when I get back.

The trip after this one to New Mexico?  Back to Turkey I think.

  2. I drove through New Mexico on a trip I made from Tulsa Oklahoma to Las Vegas, Nevada. I loved New Mexico and would have loved spending more time there. Between my stays in Las Vegas and Tuscon, I think I would have loved living in the southwest desert. I was fascinated too by all the art, pottery, architecture and scenery. I hope you have loads of fun on your trip, Jack. ~Patti ❤
