Honeymoon Reflection


Ayampe, Ecuador
A small village, with a big heart 


We had a wonderful time in Ayampe for our honeymoon, the holistic village is exactly what we need after an extremely busy/crazy few months.  Our sales representative at United Military Travel (UMT) was wonderful, and made the process so simple!  And believe me, we needed simple!  Our trip was full of sunsets, reflecting, connections, and nature thanks to UMT’s fantastic team!

While there we were immersed by two words – COMPASSION and SYNCHRONICITY.

We need to always have COMPASSION for our bodies, other, the environment, and be compassionate about life; live in the MOMENT not in the past or future.

SYNCHRONICITY is the experience of two or more events as meaningfully related, where they are unlikely to be casually related.  
The first time we heard this word was on the plane from Panama to Ecuador.  The lady sitting next to Josh made an uncanny connection with us, that at the time was exactly what we needed.  She said our meeting was what she recognized as synchronicity and not to ignore it…we will always remember her.  Also, in the book I was reading there-Aleph, by Paulo Coelho, he speaks of it multiple times.  Sometimes in life we get so caught up in the outside forces that we fail to recognize when we are in the right place – at the exact right time – and when we are with the exact people who are supposed to be in our lives.  Mine and Josh’s goal for the rest of our lives is to always be aware and live in the present.

When we chose Ecuador as our honeymoon destination we questioned whether it was the right place to go but now we realize it was where we were meant to go.  There is something about the Pacific Ocean that does wonders for our souls…
A HUGE thank you goes out to United Military Travel for the cheap military airfare!  It was incredibly easy and fast to get approved for the travel loan – which is great for us sporadic travelers!  Check them out on Facebook too at www.facebook.com/unitedmilitarytravel or call 866-582-9579
