Travelling is a kind of magic
Scots author explains how to make sure any journey is a life-changing experience
Many people can travel the world, but never really gain anything from what they see or do.
But Scots author Dr Rima Morrell is hoping her new book Travelling Magically will ensure that any journey, whether it is an overnight stay or a round-the-world trip, becomes a life-changing experience,
As well as practical advice on every aspect of travel, including how to get around cheaply and ethically, she has plenty of tips on travelling with animals and usggestions on when are good times to tell your travel stories on your return.
Rima has also filled her book full of inspirational stories and guidance on how to get the most from your adventures by meeting with locals, absorbing the culture and opening up to new experiences.
The Doctor of Anthropology, runs an animal shelter on Skye called the Living Ark, said: "The book is all about creating the life that you really want through travelling, so you are not just off to spain for a fortnight and then back to the same old, same old.
It shows how to use your travelling experiences to change your life and I think that is more important today then ever, when a lot of people seem to have what they want materially only to discover they are still not happy".

I admit to going straight to page 308. (!!) How exciting for me to be included in this wonderful tome. I have also read, and re-read, Chapter 8: Where do you really, really want to go?
We all visualize that dream location -- the one you just KNOW holds the key to rediscovering your own magic. You know that once you have experienced this place you will be transformed, and from that point on, the world will never look the same.
I know this is true for me. I began thinking about Hawaii not long ago. And even though I've never been there (yet!), I somehow know how I will FEEL, once I get there. I know that I am meant to be there, eventually.
Being a foodie, I went next to the chapter on Food Choices. I just love this chapter, which includes recipes, and advice on foraging, bartering, and dining on locally-grown meals, thereby enhancing your travel experience. And I really appreciated the discussion on personal vibration, which can be elevated and maintained, through healthier choices, which in turn will keep your intuition fine-tuned, as you continue to travel magically.
Since this book arrived in the mail from the U.K., I have been bringing it along with me, to the massage therapist, to the beach, to my restaurant gigs (I work as a clairvoyant medium). I open to different chapters, such as When to Accept Hospitality. This is an interesting topic, because sometimes everything falls into place, and you land somewhere that just feels 'right'. And then there are the times when you sense right away that the chemistry is off. And it falls to that finely-tuned intuition to lead you effortlessly to those connections that will feel right to you, and to your hosts.
And in using my intution, I opened the book to page 94. My eyes immediately land on the section title: Walking the World.
How perfect. I have always been a walker, and lately I've been slacking off. And probably not even realizing how much I've missed it. And now reading this section, I acknowledge that there is so much more to this than just 'taking a walk.'
Walking in itself is a journey or pilgrimage that can be done every day, learning and discovering in your own neighhorhood. I remember a friend once telling me he was so angry one night when his car broke down, forcing him to walk to get help. And as he walked on the sidewalk past a fence, he was hit in the face with blossoms from overgrown rosebushes that were hanging over the fence--he hadn't even noticed them as he stormed by. I always get this picture in my mind of him spitting out rose petals, and pulling a thorny vine out of his hair -- but anyway -- once he got over his 'mad' he realized how overwhelming was the healing scent of flowers, and that it had forced him to actually 'stop and smell the roses'. (Well he had no choice the thorns got him right? lol) Later on he told me that he realized this would never have happened, had he been driving.
And I remember walking to the neighborhood bakery when I first moved to my neighborhood, and discovering this amazing tree on the property, with all these vines wrapped around it, and another tree trunk intertwined. I stood there with my little white bag of biscotti, gazing in bliss at this magnificent being in front of me, and SO glad I had chosen to walk that day.
You see what this book does to you?
I am more than inspired by Travelling Magically; I have been web-surfing travel destinations and fares, and daydreaming, and remembering how I felt when I just knew I would be moving out of state (I lived in Florida for 5 years). I am also ordering stuff from Hawaii.
Travelling Magically is well-organized and chock full of information you didn't even realize you needed; the practical as well as the magical. For every happy wanderer!
Journey By Night: A Solitary Journey
This book fills a very much and long overdue gap in the travel writing market and on the flip side fills a gap in the soul/intuition literature as well.
When I saw this title in the bookshop I leapt on it! Having a ferocious appetite for anything to do with following and thus living ones soul path, the path to source, as well as a long-held love of travel this book is the perfect blend of both these subjects.
We only travel because we are seeking something, deep down, on a soul level, that is missing from our lives, otherwise we would be happy to stop at home. It is the soul that calls us to travel, so it follows therefore, that if you hear your souls call, following your intuition as guidance, this will inevitably lead to that missing something being found on your journey.
This makes for a very magical experience, a trip that is totally unique to you. Not a journey based on doing and seeing what you think you should do and see, a journey based on what your friends want to do or the guide books suggestions. There is no schedule, no beaten track.
Full of essential information every traveller needs.
A must read for every gapper, career-breaker, mid-life crisiser and wandering soul.
Blissful wanderings to you.
