Following Your Instinct – Alicante, Spain
I have always been an avid global traveler with the last five years shifting my focus to wellness travel as an important part of my healing journey. I simply wanted more from my travel; a good old all-inclusive resort would not do it for me anymore. I wanted something more, to experience body, mind, and spirit rejuvenation, meet new like-minded people, eat and drink healthy and be inspired.
In February 2019, while casually talking to someone I just met at the social gathering in Canada, I learned about Alicante, a true hidden gem, a picturesque port city in Spain’s southeastern area of Costa Blanca. I’ve been to Spain a few times while living in Europe many years ago, but never heard of it. The more I’ve learned about the place and its surrounding areas, I instinctively knew I had to go there. And go Alone.
Well, it is important to mention that I am happily married, a mother of two, almost grown-up kids and I don’t normally go on vacations alone since…well actually, never. However, I was in desperate need of some Me Travel Time, self-reflection, and journaling while exploring a new wellness idea in Spain. Moreover, I was determined to go on a budget but have a grand time. The power of manifesting my future proved to be true in my life, once again.
Fast forward, two months after the above-mentioned conversation, very excited, I have arrived at the Alicante airport, via Zurich, Switzerland. I took a short public transit from the airport straight to my rented room at the shared apartment located in one of the oldest buildings in the city center, a few steps the famous Mercado (Food Market).
