A Journey to Poland
One of the most amazing highlights of Poland was exploring the city of Krakow, considered one of the seven Chakra (spiritual) centres of the world. We also visited Warsaw and Gdansk (on the Baltic Sea world famous for Amber). To rest and recoup we finished our journey in a lovely village in the South East at the foothills of Tetra Mountains. We stayed in a wellness centre (health retreat) and enjoyed numerous treatments such as therapeutic massages, hot and cold whirlpools, saunas, and many others. Each evening we would walk down the mountain to a local café in the village where we would enjoy delicious coffee, pastries and interesting conversation.
A Journey to India
We journeyed to the North East region of India trekking to the foothills of the Himalaya Mountains. Much of our journey was by jeep, which was very exciting as we viewed stunning valleys, mountains, tea growing regions (such as Darjeeling), visiting temples, and mosques (many with tiny but tenacious monkeys hopping from tree to tree), and spending time strolling through local markets. Another amazing experience was staying in a National Park and enjoying two game drives (day and night) to view animals including the one-horned Rhinoceros.
In Calcutta (a city of 18 million people) we visited the world famous Mother Teresa’s orphanage and spent evenings strolling the crowded but fun night markets enjoying local life. Many people in Calcutta live a simple humble life, however are very rich spiritually and as honoured guests we really learned to appreciate this.
Part of our journey was travelling for three days by slow boat along the Dhamaprada River stopping frequently to visit temples and mosques and watch from riverbanks cremations then the remains being placed on floats with many lit candles, incense and colourful flowers – this was a beautiful experience and brought interesting insight into the spiritual life of the people. Travelling by boat also provided opportunity to visit local villages many of which had not been visited by foreigners (until us!) we also watched workers of all ages spinning silk threads to create lovely Saris. Many were working late into the night by candlelight.
Everyone seemed to agree the overall highlight of our journey to India was enjoying first hand the amazing warm hospitality and spiritual life of the people.Contact us for more info
