30 Days of Indie Travel Project: Spirit

Watching the sun rise from Mt. Sinai

The prompt for Day 19 of the 30 Days of Indie Travel Project* is Spirit.

Some places have the power to make even the most die-hard agnostic reconsider their position. Have you ever been in a place where you felt more alive or more connected to nature, the universe, or a higher power than anywhere else?

I am not a religious person. I don’t really consider myself atheist or agnostic because, frankly, I can never remember what the difference is between the two. And I’m not sure I would even say I am an overly spiritual person.

I like to think there is a higher power out there and I like to think that everything happens for a reason, even if that reason isn’t immediately apparent to us.

I have seen a lot of amazing things while traveling. I’m not sure ever I experienced any type of spiritual moment or connection with the universe, but there were certainly many that made me feel alive and exhilarated.

They left me a little speechless and made me drop my jaw and just saw “wow.”

*Throughout the month of November, BootsnAll is inviting bloggers from around the world to join them in a daily blogging effort – the 30 Days of Indie Travel Project –  designed to reflect on how our travel experiences over the last year – or whenever – have shaped us and our view of the world. Bloggers can follow the prompts as strictly or loosely as they like, interpreting them in various ways and responding via text, photos or video posted on their own blogs.
