These questions and more are questions I have been putting off until now. I really wanted my first two months to be about travel and having fun and experiencing everything without reality holding me back. But month #3 is going to be a bit different. I plan on staying in the places I visit more than just a night or two, to unpack my suitcase and feel like I am somewhat settled. I want to use this more relaxing, less action-packed month to really think about me and what the heck I’m going to do come July 16. I’m not going to over-analyze or stress about it, but I’m going to let my natural thoughts come up since I haven’t made time for them in two months!
Today is the beginning of this third phase, and without even realizing the date, I had booked myself at a little B&B in the middle of nowhere for some relaxation and nature. I am in Grunau im Almtal, which is about halfway between Vienna and Salzburg, Austria. See more about this highly recommended town and B&B in my next post.
I’m currently sitting on a chair behind the hotel (“The Treehouse”) with a stream flowing just in front of me and a mountain with trees densely packed together just beyond the stream. There is something comforting yet unsettling about the juxtaposition of the ever-flowing stream and the trees that are forever in the same place. The water gets to travel and see the world, but the trees get to see how the world evolves from one place. I could get super philosophical right now, but I’ll stop here and leave you to your own psychoanalyses.
