Experience of note

Lofoten Islands

I haven’t posted in a while. Not because I haven’t wanted to but because I have been gone and was specifically keeping myself from the internet. My wife and I took a long overdue vacation to Norway where we hiked all over the place including in the Lofoten islands which are located above the article circle and pictured above. (An incredible experience.)

Travel does something to a person, especially foreign travel. There’s something about getting out from under your comfort zone and placing yourself in another culture that I find beneficial for my life and also for my writing. One of my favorite quotes comes from Gunther Holtorf famous for his ongoing 23-year road trip has said,

“The more you have traveled, the more you realize how little you have seen.”

It couldn’t be more true. There’s something about travel that helps stretch a person, it helps refine them and helps shape their experiences. It’s good stuff. Take time to unplug and get out there, doesn’t even have to be foreign travel. Time away from the manuscript is just as important as time in front of it.
