Best piece of travel advice?
Last year, my Buddhist teacher was meditating and my Lady God told him to remind me to allow myself more time to prepare before I travel. My driver will say to me, “Please be here at 9am” and I will go down 45 minutes late. It’s usually because I’m looking for things that I have forgotten to pack. Now I try to pack the day before I travel....
How else do your Buddhist beliefs influence your travels?
As soon as I get off a plane I put my hand to the ground to thank the god of that country and ask that my stay is peaceful, with no accidents or danger, and that I get the chance to meet good people and make good friendships. Sometimes I hear people say, “What the hell is this guy doing?” as I pretend to tie my shoe lace.
