The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.
[Gilbert K. Chesterton]
I’m sure it doesn’t come as much of a surprise, considering how little time I’ve spent at home this summer, but I have felt the need to get away (and give myself room to breathe). A friend of mine had plans to go to Colorado for a few weeks to spend some dedicated time training a few of her horses, so I decided to tag along and go on a road trip with my friend, three horses and a dog.
Going on the road with her sometime and seeing what it’s like to travel with horses is something I’ve always had an interest in doing, so I was excited for the opportunity. We had some touristy plans and only one of our ideas panned out, but I still had a lot of fun living on a ranch for a few weeks. I also had plenty of time to get some work done and it felt nice to have some dedicated work time. When I’ve been home there’s been so much activity that I was starting to feel like I was behind on some things. (Like this post on essential oils, in which most of the photos were taken in the living quarters of the horse trailer while we were in Colorado.)
I’ll definitely share about what we did soon, but for now, here are some of the everyday moments during our trip. (Also, be sure to stick around for an exciting giveaway at the end!)
