Just before I left I read Travel can Boost Your Mental Health. Everything in that article was soooooooooo true:
1. “An added benefit . . . travel . . . serves as a reprieve for the mind. Plus, . . . it’s been noted how travel actually expands the mind as well”. Travel expanded my waistline too.
2. “Traveling allows the mind to expand and literally see the world in a new and different way,” Sarah Jensen
3. “Changes and detours in schedule, if necessary, must be accommodated, and honing in on map skills stimulates the thinking process.” Daru was a wonderful tour guide who took me everywhere even though her back hurt more and more everyday . . . until it went out completely the day before I left. She even took me to see a typical Portland doctor’s office.
At my age, it’s hysterically funny, rather than embarrassing, when I fall off an ottoman in a Moroccan restaurant.
