Yoga and meditation on travels

“Travelling gave me so much more than I expected. I planned to travel for half a year, but after a few months I figured out that half a year feels like nothing while being on the road. So many cultures, landscapes and people. So much to learn and so much to experience.” – Sven, a Dutch yoga and meditation addict.
