BE CAREFUL NOT WHAT YOU MANIFEST BUT WHEN | Someone or crowds of someones over time penned the achingly true trope, 'wherever you go, there you are’. It’s heartbreaking, at times. We choose what to pack, why can’t we choose a different self for the voyage? The first installment of my Aeolian Islands travel diary is perhaps not what you expect. It’s the tale of a far-off land I’d dreamed of visiting for years after stumbling upon its beauty, tucked away in the center of a magazine. Almost four years later, the story of my visit to the Aeolian Islands is unfinished. The I who was packed was grief-stricken, broken, and became more battered from the moment it was time to depart for the airport in Los Angeles to the moment I returned. But I made it, I’m good, I’m happy and the islands did not disappoint. This is the beginning of that story.
In this first chapter, in partnership with @loveolie_com I share a bit about my take off, Taormina, Sicily and arriving. On @of_the_wolves #partnership
