GUARDIANS OF DREAMS II – The never-Ending adventure
There are dreams that people considered unattainable, but what seemed impossible did not stop us, and we kept travelling around the world.
We took five more journeys through Asia, Africa and Oceania. We had five deeply moving adventures together as a family, ranging in age from teenagers to fifty something. Now that the kids have left their childhood behind, roles have changed, which has enriched our experiences even more.
The context has also been changing. The world moves at an incredible speed. Technology and ancestral cultures meet and live together. Everything has its positive side-and a not so positive one as well. Learning becomes profound, challenging and, sometimes, hard. Reality accentuates dierences that shouldn’t exist. We learn from everything. The pure beauty of some distant places highlights the contrasts, and reminds us that we can live happily without such a materialistic fuss around us.
Getting deep into Borneo’s forests. Looking for the Komodo dragon on its island. Living as part of a community in Papua New Guinea. Riding a camel into the Sahara. Getting stuck in an African road. Watching the sunset among the baobabs in Madagascar. Dancing with a lost tribe in the South Pacific. Walking along the edge of an active volcano. Sleeping in an ancient monastery in the mountains of former Burma. Visiting the colourful Philippines… Those were some of our many experiences in this life changing ride that has been going on for 25 years.
I cannot say it’s the end, because life is an adventure that poses continuing challenges as part of natural evolution. What I can assure you is that, together or on our own, we will keep dreaming, and that making dreams come true is up to ourselves.
Everyone is the Guardian of their own dreams.
