My Life On A Hippie Beach
It’s now about 9 weeks I live in Caleta and I have to say that I really feel like home. This place and it’s energy are truly special. I love waking up here, there are no days I feel bad and very less moments I have to worry about something.
I have a lot of time to create art, read and think about many subjects that I feel I have to work on.
There are 3 weeks left until I will be back in Austria again … I have to admit that I miss my bed, but I can’t imagine sleeping and living in a house after so long time spending outside, being one with nature. Waking up by the sun rise, falling asleep with the shiny stars above my head, hearing the sound of the birds flying over my tent, the constant sound of the waves hitting the beach … so many things that make me feel very connected to nature and most of all to myself! I rarely have bad thoughts here, it’s almost impossible. I’ve learned a lot of things and changed my view on some things I had not imagined to ever see them like that. I became more tranquilo as we would say here 😀
I discovered many new things about myself, about what I can do, about what I like and what I don’t … I learned to trust myself more, to trust the power of the universe and the flow of life. I can say I know myself better now … and it’s great!
I love spending time with people here and talking about their life stories and why they are traveling, what they have to tell, what they experienced so far … but I also very like to spend some time alone, well, actually a lot! When I don’t have to clean my place, the dishes, my clothes or to go for water, food and to take away the trash I’m reading on the beach or make bracelets, take pictures, prepare some food (since I’m here I love cooking), meditate or just lay and admire the beautiful surroundings.
I still want to do some trips around the island before I leave, but I have to say that I am a little bit exhausted from all the walking here and I want to relax more (and I already saw pretty everything here after driving three times around Tenerife). I never felt so fit like here! Carrying 32 l of water once a week and walking 10 km twice a week with a bag full of food is really the best workout. Oh, and I never was so brown before I think, really like my gypsy skin right now 😀 Wild, dusty, brown, salty and happy, hihihi …
I’m enjoying the time I have left here in this magical place, but I’m also looking forward to what will come. I have a lot of ideas and plans for the future. The first thing I will do when I arrive home, will be to clear my stuff out and sell some furniture from my room. I realized that I have so many things but I don’t really need them .. I had that in my head for long time now but never managed to do it. But now after my trip I for sure know that having less feels better (so therefore that my bag got stolen was a good thing too, it taught me a lot). And my room really needs a cozy chill out! *Update from home: I sorted out half of my things and sold my desk)*
I absolutely grew a lot on this trip and I’m proud of myself for taking it and for the things that changed in my mind. I am happy to experience all this, owning less stuff (I actually own 2 pants, 4 shirts, 1 pullover, couple of socks and underwear and 4 pair of shoes (got them from the give away here, as many other things after my bag got stolen) … but more spiritual things. Spirituality fulfills people in the way that material objects can never do … I wish for everybody to experience something like this at least once in their life! 🙂
