“I see the Earth, I am looking at her smiling because she makes me happy. The Earth, looking back at me is smiling too. May I walk happily and lightly upon Her.” - Navajo proverb ——————————————— We set out for sunrise on horseback, greeting the day as the ancient songs of our Navajo guide echoed across the valley. His voice brought me goosebumps and watery eyes as I imagined what it must’ve been like to hear thousands of natives singing together in such a spiritually powerful chorus.
To me, some of my best travel experiences happen when I become intimately connected with the rituals and customs of the locals. Despite being in my home country, this was easily one the most moving travel experiences of my life. Do you have a favorite travel experience?
