While I fulfill my dream of sailing towards the 4 cardinal points across the 7 seas under the 12 Signs of the Zodiac exploring Thousands of Horizons on our bright Magic Carpet… (and above all; with the best traveling partner of all my Lives, the Little Princess Alum!) … I suddenly wake up willing to set up a Web Site…-[*? @# “:”!– (something I´ve always considered attractive, but at the same time unnecessary, irrelevant, confusingly complex and overwhelming… Specially remembering that in the 90´s -by the time I started my excentric voyages- setting up a website was almost as possible as going by bike to Saturn)…

 

Today a very strong reason impels me to do it…

 

And it´s to say “Thanks a Millon Times” with every story I share, to all the Angels I came across during my looooong way…

 

…from the Southamerican “Gaucho Montaño” who at the end of last Millennium saved us from that Pampean Hurricane giving us a lift in his vintage pick-up full of Hungy Hounds while going hunting, passing through “Howard & Rosy” who gave me the keys of their fancy mansion in Miami, only 15 minutes after meeting me for the first time so that I would take care of it while they went on vacation in 2001 -2 months after sleeping every night under a Palm Tree in West Palm Beach!-, “John Llewellewyn” the Official Doctor of the British High Commision in New Delhi who suddenly showed up on my way to Tibet inviting me to live like a Diplomat during my best months of 2007 in India while learning what real “Asian Luxury!” means, “Panchito” the Basque, who treated me like a Rock Star during my Reign over the Stages of “Tango Inn Hostels“, “Jim Jopson” in whose Pent House with that sumptuous swimming-pool in the Australian Golden Coast we found out that Alum had undertaken her Journey towards our dimension -and we went to celebrate climbing with Ainoa to the lip of the Crater of the most active Volcano in the world!- (Tanna Island-Vanuatu-Melanesia)… The great “Gus!” who 9 months later found us crossing the “Andes Cordilleran Belt” – with Alum in our arms – 8 days after giving birth on that “Sunny Patagonian Bay” facing the Pacific Ocean; allowing the youngest adventurer in the world to enjoy her first “International Ride“! …and so on up to “Mai”, the beautiful daughter of the Charming Head of 山寺 / Yamadera /small village at the foot of the Japanese Alps- with whom the destiny wanted me to come across this last New Year´s Eve to invite us to explore together what´s beyond the barrier of imagination… for sure a much more fascinating world than the one we call “real!” , and whose Sacred Gateways open wide if we dare to jump into the abyss of the “unknown” whenever we feel the calling from our heart…

 

Now that I look back on it… perhaps the only thing I´ve actually learned to do along my way… is to let the wind take me wherever my Real Place is at every moment, without asking many questions… to finally wake up one day realizing that the person with whom we had always dreamed to meet; was waiting for us on the other side of the world, exactly on the opposite end of the planet ready to celebrate something that only random chance and Cosmic Coincidences are able to generate… That mystical essence which we call “Magic”...

 

Of course within the preceding paragraph -that in 9 lines attempts to synthesize a whole life and does not even reach to be an “introduction“- remain without mentioning plenty of beautiful people including quite possibly you yourself, but if I tried to name you all one by one right now, this post would exceed the capacity of all Google Servers… (and besides, I would never finally have it ready to publish!) … May be it´s better to let it grow day by day at its own pace with every single page that looms by the Zenith of Milhorizontes…

 

Meanwhile, and to culminate the beginning of this Significant Words of Thanks, I considere appropriate to start answering a very simple question; that from the times of the “Gaucho Montaño” I have been asked about three million five hundred thousand eight hundred and seventy four times…

 

-“When did you start to travel?” 

 

 

The answer is quite simple…

 

 

I don`t remember…

 

 

It´s like asking a Shipwrecked when was the last time he sighted Land

 

 

 

However, what I can actually point out are some main milestones which –if I die and become “fashion”– those who profit from my World Trip Tales will surely mark as “The Beginning” of something that actually… has been going on forever…

 

In my next post I promise to start telling from that unforgettable moment... That I can no longer remember… and return to today at the speed of light, passing through that microscopic point of the “space-time” dimension in which you and I met for the first time- and may meet for the first time again some day!-…

 

After all; in the spiral of time there is no past or future… everything turns round in a mysterious combination of fantastic events… and the best thing we can do is enjoy the Greatest Gift of the Universe… our “Magnificent Present…”

 

The one that I enjoy so much… because you exist in it…

 

 

Thanks for being here and there!

 

 

 

Always!!!
