I never expected to be here!
Coming to Innsbruck initially wasn't in my plan, but after a few twists and turns in Munich, I decided to come here for a week. And I'm so glad I did!
Isn't that the reason I moved to Europe in the first place? To visit all the wonderful cities and towns that are just such a short distance away. I mean think about it: Paris, London, the coastline in Portugal, Spain!
Oh, I wanted this so much. I was living on Maui of all places, the veritable paradise island of the world! This is not just my own opinion. It's also that of Conde Naste Traveler magazine, that consistently has rated Maui as the number one, best island to visit in the world, for multiple reasons.
So "why leave?" so many people have asked me. Especially those who are living in Germany. Why the heck would you leave Maui to come here?!
Haha. You'd have to know! You'd have to know what living on a paradise island for the rest of the world is really like. Yes, it's gorgeous. Yes, it's peaceful and calm. And yes, there is so much to see there.
But then, that's it! You're there. And there is no where else to go but there, unless you jump on an airplane for a minimum of 7 hours!
Yep. And that turned out to be a bit too long for me.
Sooo... Europe kept calling my name.
I'd lived here before, and remember the proximity of so much.
Fast forward: I live in Munich, Germany now, and I love it.
So, recently because of a snafu with my booked hotel in Munich, I had to leave the city for a week. At first, I was a bit perturbed. But then, I realized: what the heck! Just jump on a train and go somewhere!
So I did.
And where did I end up? Innsbruck, Austria.
Just a short distance of an hour and a half, through the gorgeous Austrian Alps! Wow.
Coming here to Innsbruck really opened my eyes to how much richness and beauty from centuries ago were created here, and in so many other towns and cities all over Europe!
If you're on Instagram, you can see quite a few of my photos there, at @suzanne_goulet.
So many artisans, architects, painters, and sculptors were put to work in creating such a beautiful little city.
Innsbruck is the gateway between Italy, Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. It provides a passageway to this day between all these countries where trains and cars can pass through the Alps.
Back in the day, it was river travel, and navigating the Alps in the quickest and easiest way possible is what grew the population and trade here.
I really loved my time here! And I imagine there will be many more places I will visit throughout this region of intersection between cultures, food, and languages.
But one thing I saw so clearly as a gift from Spirit was the gift of being in the presence of such huge mountains. They brought me the ideas and energy of reaching high and big for what I want to contribute to the world.
It's time. Although you may have been hearing from me for a long time, I am now offering myself wholly to a Higher Power to fulfill contributing to the world what I came here to contribute.
So much of that contribution I've already been doing for some time now, but on a small scale. I also find myself living in the best possible place I could ever imagine, and I feel stable and strong in Munich now.
I'm so inspired and on fire, so look out for more! My offers have been available for many years, but my availability has not. Traveling takes me away from the stability of being able to deliver sessions and coaching. But now that I'm back in Munich, I am ready to go.
