It was Thailand traveling, searching for ones reinstatement in humanity when we met Dan. Dan was Thailand bound solo traveling and to meet his real birth parents. After leaving Thailand at the age of 4 to be adopted by an American family in the USA, Dan returned at 34 to know His biological Thai Family. Dan was also on the Patara Elephant Farm -It was something as simple as looking after myself and my travel companion with small things like a towel, taking a photo, a lock to lock our valuables and the most important item... bug spray! That Is when I knew Dan was the perfect fit... For #7
Dan was a friend from the moment we met him and his energy was karma described... Bye bye lucky number 7 make it count Dan! Don't stop the Karma, let it fly :)

This goes out to my friend, Jodi who is sort of responsible for my trip to Thailand this year. Who books a trip to Thailand in 5 days prior to going...this girl! I booked my flight after she returned with her wonderful travel stories. Well, she prepared me for my travels. She offered me her backpack, travel wallet, and local Thai contacts she met on her trip. During my trip she kept in contact with me, offering suggestions on things to go see and do. I owe part of my successful trip to Jodi! So here's to you Jodi, may good karma find you on your trip to South America!

Although I had a one month trip planned in South America, I chose to give the bracelet to Gaia on my very first day because she had been so kind in providing tips prior to me even arriving in Sao Paulo. I only had one day to spend in Sao Paulo and I was by myself, so prior to leaving found myself on the "Solo Travel Society" Facebook page asking for tips on what to do. This was how I met Gaia, who recommended what to do and see while there, even offering to meet up with me. The best part of traveling for me is meeting locals who can give you a real flavor for the culture and daily way of life, so I was pumped to meet her. And sure enough, she lived up to the hype. We met up for the afternoon at a bar, traded stories over some delicious caipirinhas, and then went to a local park to watch the sunset. My time with Gaia that afternoon ended up being one of the highlights of my trip and was certainly the best part of Sao Paulo. Gaia also gave me some great tips on where to stay later on down the road, also far exceeding expectations. Gaia is also a traveler so I figured she'd be a great recipient of the bracelet. I was so thankful for Gaia's help before and during my stay and it was so much fun to meet her. Hopefully we can meet again in the future!

Bracelet number seven became mine after meeting Jodi for a few caipirinhas (and a cloudy sunset) in Sao Paulo. I really liked the gift and, believe me, I used the bracelet on my left wrist most days during the three months it was my possession. Now the bracelet is with Bobby Wade, an Australian expat living in Santa Elena, near Medellín, Colombia.
I was in Medellin in March, working on a new project and going trough a very troubled emotional time. Thinking about seeing some nature, eating well and just recovering myself a little, I decided to stay in Medellin for the weekend and found Bobby's Dharma Bnb while searching Air Bnb.
But because I happened to be there in that particular weekend, I got to go with Bobby and his friends to an indian healing ceremony, up in the mountains. I don't believe in chance: it was something I had to do. It was the start of my own healing process.
So, thanks Bobby. I do believe your team is building something quite special in the Santa elena mountains. When time comes, you pass the number seven bracelet to someone who also helps you in your path.
PS: the Eagle Condor Alliance is setting up a ten day program with dieting, exercising, meditation, sweat lodges and ceremonial experiences. Look for them if ever planning a trip to Colombia.

I went for a return visit to Medellin, and a friend-of-a-friend (who I had never met before) opened his home to me to stay for a few days. We hit it off like immediate brother and sister, and shared a lot of laughs and beautiful conversations. I gifted him some things from Peru I thought he would like, and he gave me the bracelet as I was leaving for the airport.... It's taken me 6 months to check out the website, but here I am! Thanks Bobby, LOVE YOU!
