Just read the whole thing. I’ve been debating one whether I should travel like this for years. But I let fearand guilt stop me every time and get close. My life is very stagnant and I’m falling deeper and deeper into depression. Do you have any suggestions for traveling like this? Like perhaps how to gain the confidence to get my foot out the doors? Or is this just one of those things you just do?

In a way you do just need to go and do it because there are always going to be reasons in your mind to not go. Depression makes that unbelievely difficult, but I do think traveling and definitely attending an ayahuasca retreat would turn your life around in a really positive way. I basically just saved up money from my server job in chicago and bought a plane ticket and now that i’m here I couchsurf and do work trade stuff to keep my trip going. What if you just bought a plane ticket and then figured out the rest after? Cause you really only need to tackle one day at a time, so right now all you have to do is get a plane ticket :)

Hey Katie! That’s so cool that you actually did it and went on your own! I think I might do that this year too. How was your actual Ayahuasca experience?

oh it was fantastic! very clam and inspiring. I went inside of my dreams and memories and it taught me that I am often disconnected from the moment, but that it doesn’t need to be that way anymore

Nice read.

I too am a solo traveler. Just got back to the states from Asia. On my way to the west coast to do some car camping. It’s certainly an interesting path.

I do get quite lonely though. You meet new people and experiences every day, but it’s hard to maintain interpersonal relationships as most part within a month. That being said, I’m still in love with the lifestyle. I think I need to make a home base that I visit regularly though.
