Daily Prompt: No, thanks! (No more!)

Prior to 2011, the Indian subcontinent held little appeal in my mind. The heat, the crowding, the trash, the pollution – I wasn’t convinced that I wanted to spend 30 hours flying to be miserable. This all changed when my younger sister made the announcement that she would be moving to southern India, Chennai to be exact, for a couple of years. Having my little sister 10,000 miles away for that length of time was a bit difficult to process so I immediately decided I should plan a trip to the land of spices. Tickets purchased, passport and visa approved, I would be arriving in Chennai on October 25th of 2012.

After 3 weeks in the country, my mind was changed. Though there were some frustrations, I left knowing that I would be back again. The people, architecture, culture and religions were all beautiful – despite my short stay, I left a different person than when I arrived. Never again will I say I’m uninterested in visiting someplace – every destination presents an opportunity to learn and grow.

Colorful Colorado only showed me white today ❄️ Side note, every season is Chaco season!!

Well, our time in Utah has come to an end (technically the photo is in Arizona 😜). We’re starting our journey back to Michigan this morning after an awesome trip! Yesterday I drove through the Tribal Park portion of Monument Valley after years of driving through on the highway. Cache is sporting his Ruffwear “Monument Valley” color scheme leash and collar while posing at north window overlook. . . . . . #australianshepherd #aussies #aussiesofinstagram #aussielovers #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogoftheday #australianshepherdworld #australianshepherdsofinstagram #aussie #dogsofinsta #aussiesdoingthings #monumentvalley #monumentvalleytribalpark #utah #arizona #adventuredog #roadtrip #mydogismy #optoutside #navajonation
I’m so fortunate to have this little dog in my life. She may be geriatric but she’s still running up and down rock faces (albeit more slowly than she did as a younger dog), sprinting around the desert after her brother and posing like a super model for photos. She’s definitely my soul dog ❤️ . . . . . #aussiesdoingthings #dogsofinsta #aussielove #bluemerle #aussie #australianshepherdsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #bluemerleaussie #instadog #aussiesofinstagram #australianshepherdworld #australianshepherd #adventure #adventuredog #seniordog #olddogsrule #utah #mydogismy #optoutside
