"For me, travel has become a mindfulness practice like no other — a sensory immersion of the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of a world far beyond the confines of my own mini microcosm. Away from the frenetic pace of daily life, we can access parts of ourselves that have been repressed or denied for weeks, months or even years." - Lena
