I am struggling with my wanderlust! I have now been back from my last trip for two weeks and the first few days are always the hardest for me. It is as if my body is waiting to catch up with my spirit. Mind you it has been a good year for my wanderlust with visits to International Schools in Japan, Korea and several European countries. It has been a rewarding experience to share stories and art projects, together with my partner storyteller M.S. Blackrose, with many students and see the inspiring final works that they have produced. I can’t imagine doing anything else but traveling and sharing art and stories, it is what makes the world a rewarding place to be in. Having now come back to Australia for another hot summer I am already looking forward to next year’s travel. In the meantime, I am curing my wanderlust with some highlights of this year’s journeys.
