She decided to spend 4 months in Italy learning about the beautiful language and the pleasure of life (eat), 4 months in India learning to meditate (pray) in an Ashram and 4 months in Indonesia learning to balance the art of pleasure and meditating (supposedly 'love' although I don't quite get it). So this is her story about the journey to seek… Read more
