2020 is a year we’d all like to forget. Our (travel) souls aren’t meant to be rooted in one place. But this, too, shall pass, so let’s take each day with a grain of
salt sand and look to the ancient dunes of the Namib Desert for wisdom.
This ever-shifting desertscape has stood the test of time (and time again) and can teach us all a thing or two about patience, permanence and hard times. Remember to stand tall and stand your ground, while always staying grounded. Embrace those winds of change and let things blow over (they always do).
Weather the elements, and when things get tough, draw a line in the sand. Be still, soak up the sun and remember, happiness generates a ripple effect. We can’t wait to welcome you back … perhaps the so(u)litude of the desert is exactly what your soul needs.
