Peru and Its Highlights

Picture: My parents and I strolling through the streets of Cusco, Peru by one of the people in our tour group 🙂

Summer 2019 changed my life. My trip to Peru opened my eyes to so many new things and allowed me to learn so much more about the world I live in. I have loved creating this series about the places I’ve been and their highlights, and today we are talking about Peru. We spent about two weeks exploring various regions of Peru, and I can’t wait to share my adventures with you…

The first highlight isn’t a place or a site; it’s the people. Everywhere we went and everyone we met were so warm and welcoming. The people there shaped our trip and left a lasting impact on our vacation. They let us learn with them and they welcomed us into learning their culture.

LGAS S. 1 E. 9: Peru and How It Impacted My Spirituality

Listen to the episode here:

In previous posts, I have talked about spirituality being a journey, and today I am going to talk about a specific part of my journey that changes it all for me. A year ago, I took a trip to Peru. While we were there our tour guide educated us on so many parts of Peruvian culture and one of the things that I took with me was how they have infused Incan beliefs into their life. After this trip, how I viewed my spirituality changed dramatically and I owe where I am now spiritually to that trip. 

Today I am going to talk about this journey for a few reasons:

LGAS S. 1 E. 5: Ways to Explore Your Spirituality

Listen to the episode here:

A part of this website is something I call “hippie stuff” where I talk about and explore various “hippie things” which are defined by parts of my spirituality (LOA, astrology, crystals, meditation, etc). In this case, I define my spirituality by my belief in a higher power (for me that is the universe). In the past two years or so I have really honed in on establishing myself spiritually and today I am going to talk about how you can do that. 

*Please note that I am in no way trying to tell you want to believe or how you should believe or how you should live. I am simply here to give guidance for those trying to start on the path of this form of spirituality/voodoo stuff (haha)*

The Lets Get Aloha Spirit Podcast: The Introduction

Listen to the first episode here:

Hello friends and Happy New Year, I have created a podcast called Lets Get Aloha Spirit. I created this podcast in hopes to share more of that style content on a deeper level. I want to have more in-depth, thorough discussions about anything and everything related to positivity, travel, and other things you may find on my website. Now you may be wondering, what is going to happen to the website. It will still be up and running but I will do things a little bit differently. Every podcast episode will also be a post on the website, so you can either listen, read, or do both of everything I post. Think of the posts as a transcript of the podcast episode with other bits of information here and there. There will still be regular content every 2 weeks, and you can find it all in one place on the website.

Here are a few other notes I did not talk about (I recorded it in July and some things have changed):
