It is not necessary to be a deep believer in order to ask spiritual questions, to think about the meaning of life, the search for oneself, one’s purpose and path. However, unlike monks and priests, our body and thoughts absorb the everyday cycle. So strong that he doesn’t let go even on vacation. We don’t have enough time even to think! But, as they say, if you don’t go on the road, then you won’t come anywhere.
The road is a magician, a psychotherapist, a magic key to spiritual growth. Not without reason since ancient times, tireless pilgrims set off on a journey to gain wisdom, to know themselves and God. So why not take an example from them ?!

Traveling is my passion. I often speak and write about how useful it is to be a wanderer: to open unprecedented horizons, experience new sensations, touch the history of other lands and get acquainted with the culture of distant peoples.

I don’t know exactly how many bridges the heroes of Jerome K. Jerome’s book “Three in a Boat” sailed, but I counted at least 4 bridges that already existed then: Chelsea Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge and Tower Bridge.

An illustration of the creative principle of man is the Tate Art Gallery, built to decorate the bridge. The gallery received its first 65 paintings from the aristocracy of the 20th century. Today in the halls of the gallery are thousands of paintings and sculptures, a real national collection from the Renaissance to the present day. Continue reading
