That is what true freedom really means for me. Freedom of time, mind, action, day in and day out. Freedom to do, what you want to do – when you want to do it. May it be a jog at sunrise, staying in bed all day, swimming at dawn or horseback riding at sunset.
Thankfully you can fulfil a lot of those freedom dreams in Asia.
That’s why this is my favourite region on this our beloved planet! You can find nice scenery, high, snow-topped mountains and deep green valleys, crystal clear oceans and lakes, great food, friendly people, pristine beaches, roaring volcanoes, permanent sunshine, hang mats at palm trees, good surfs and breaks, lonely dive spots, endless caves, indigenous species and soooooo much more. On top of all it’s still so affordable, you really get plenty of bang for your buck and don’t have to pay with an arm and a leg.
Take Horseback Riding as an example:
It is truly a relaxing and majestic hobby. Every weekend you can see people taking a ride here at the beaches of Bali, even though it isn’t a very cheap thing to do, compared to Asian standards. You have to shell out around USD 30 per hour, this usually includes a guide on a second horse, if you aren’t so familiar yet with those natural acceleration, clutch and brake.
After a while it all comes naturally. You gallop freely along the beach line; sprays of water flying at your arms and legs.
A cool wind in your hair, warm smell of Colitas, rising up through the air…..oops, that was something else. But you get the point, it doesn’t have to be Highway 101 in California to get this feeling. Here you can ride through rice fields, sand dunes, along the beach shores and best; you can chose the time, track and your company.
Don’t know? Don’t worry to much about it. Just give it a try!
As Mark Twain coined it, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”. Haaa!!!
