The Holstee Manifesto – http://shop.holstee.com/collections/frontpage/products/holstee-manifesto-poster
And here’s something from my home to yours — >
Elena, I wanted to come here and say thanks for coming to my overland world travel page, Joshing-Around. I’ve been reading some of your entries and I’ve found you have the same strong interest in travel for travel’s sake. I hope you enjoy both yourself and all of the people you will surely meet–it’s these kind of things that stick with us as we go along. Take care!
Thank you Josh, for stopping by and leaving your “online footprint” on my page : ) I guess we are all travelers in one way or another.. And I absolutely agree with you, it’s the people we meet that make travel so special.. As for “traveling for travels sake” — it’s more of a “traveling as a way of living” for me.. I started traveling before I started speaking .. literally .. in the back of my moms car en route to Germany : )) .. Travel is a very natural state for me.. it’s the non-travel life that I still have to master..
EL. I’m with you. I remember traveling with my parents through Europe in a VW van when I was about 2 years old and haven’t stopped traveling since. It’s the staying put that take effort.
Hi Fiona! Same here.. i very much understand how you feel..
let there always be a road..
I especially like “If you are looking for love, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.”
yep, it’s as simple as that.. yet, we are the one’s who manage to complicate it sometimes to the point that we forget what it is that we love and what truly makes our heart sing..
Yes – this jumped out at me, too…
And to me….
Reblogged this on Ann Novek–With the Sky as the Ceiling and the Heart Outdoors.
Absolutely lovely – the wisdom of the Dalai Lama is timeless, and I couldn’t agree more that solo travel is the way to go – at least sometimes. It’s funny, I have a blog in the works about that very thing – an accidental solo trip that has become an annual tradition for me.
Thanks for liking my post, “Fake it till you Make it.”
Safe travels, always!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your truth : )
Agree, solo travel is something that everyone should experience in their life.. you don’t get that kind of education at Harvard or anywhere else for that matter ..
It’s a great tradition to have! Rock on!
This is a really beautiful piece. A lot of people forget the simple advice that you just offered in this blog. Thank you so much for sharing
and I myself sometimes forget it too.. so this is a great reminder for me as well ; )
Love it, love it, love it! Thanks El. I just asked the three people sitting at the bar with me what their passion is. It’s a great way to live life
Thank you darling! I think it’s great to ask random people that question … it get’s them thinking .. a lot of questions nowadays are along the lines of “what college did you go to? ” What car do you drive? ” ” how many kids do you want ? ” , “what’s your credit score? ” , ” when are we gonna get married? ” … no wonder so many of us forget what it is that we are truly passionate about. : )
But how to discover what that passion really is, Amalia… that’s the thing…
Practice Compassion… I wish more people would learn this. Compassion seems to be out of style, I love coming to your page and reading your truth… Love Light & Blessings.
Thank you beautiful! Glad to have you here! World peace has to start with one’s home ..
love & light to you and yours
Nice site, I’m new to all this can’t wait to start a new adventure.
and then it should never end! ; )
lovely inspiring site!
Thank you! And I visit yours for inspiration too ..
Very wise words (:
I stumbled across your blog, following on from another comment found.
This post is wonderful to read. You know sometimes when it is exactly what you need to read but you just don’t know it until you do?!
I’m now going to seize my day, actually do the things I need to do, stop procrastinating and go and do the things I need to do somewhere I like so that it’s enjoyable… [all sounds mysterious - it's not!]
Thanks for saving/salvaging the rest of my day from my own hearty emotions.
I’m glad you found me! and likewise! You have a beautiful spirit! Rock on!
Love this. Thank you for sharing

Reblogging from Ms. Levon Travelling… http://mselenalevontraveling.com/2012/01/26/whats-your-passion/#comment-251 – thought it’s worth a second thought or more. Don’t you think?
Reblogged this! Too good and true not to share.
Thank you so much! Glad you liked it & agree, it has to be shared ; )
Hello El, thanks for liking my post Anilao, Bantangas at http://hazelbenimages.wordpress.com/
I love this post as much as others do. I have this applied in my life and im happy.
Thanks for coming by my page – nice to find a kindred spirit passionate about the same thing I am.
First off, thanks for taking an interest in my blogs. Secondly, I’m glad you’re here for me to appreciate. I’ve only had a chance to read a few of your entries, but I love your photography. I can feel it! And, of course, the words printed here are great pieces of advice in general. And, they couldn’t have come a better time. If you have looked back at my posts, you’ll see how schizophrenic and confused I am, but you will notice I am searching to find what my “passion” truly is. Maybe you just gave me the map I’ve been looking for. Thanks again and I look forward to reading more from you!
Thank you for your kind words. When you find “your passion” your whole being will know that .. I’m confident that you will. Never give up on your dreams… no matter how “politically incorrect” they might be. Feel free to come by and ask any questions.
My passion is to see and to show beauty in unknown things and places. I absolutely love your blog, it is so inspiring.
It’s great to have and live such Passion : )
Thanks for “liking” my Venice blog. You are one of the first to stumble on my new blog. Your entries and images are so inspiring. Keep on sharing…
So true! Great message. The Dalai Lama’s letter is worthy of printing and putting on the fridge as a daily reminder! I love that it suggests respecting self as well as others – something I occasionally forget to do!
Thank you for stopping by Anita! I’m glad I came across your blog, can’t wait to follow you as you check those Countries off your list! : ) Yes, this is a great list to live by.. I sometimes am guilty of the same thing .. so that’s why I need a reminder ..
Hi EL, thanks for dropping by my blog and taking the time to Like my latest post. This isn’t the first time I’ve read the words on the poster but it never fails to inspire me always cool post!
You are right. I love this. Keep on traveling the world and collecting amazing memories and sharing them with the world
Very lovely and inspiring. I’ve been reading about your career, you’re very accomplished in so many ways and still so young. Thank you for dropping by my blog…
Thank you Candace! Just living my life to the fullest : )
Keep taking pictures and living your dreams.
What a lovely post that holds so much truth about life. I’d never read these Instructions on Life by The Dalai Lama, he sounds very wise indeed. Thank you for sharing!
Reblogged this on Fabulous 50's and commented:
I love this post from El at her blog “Ms. Lena Levon Traveling”. Having looked through her posts and photos…she doesn’t hold back…or diminish her light…or worry what others think! I’m somewhat like this…but am working on it! Anyways…check her out!!
Thank you very much, Sherry! Very kind of you! I’m glad these words are being shared with others!
love & light
El – I just noticed you added me to your blog roll…thanks so much! I think we’d have a great time if we ever get to meet!!
How could I not add such a beautiful spirit to my page.. ! I’m sure we would and hope we will in the near future! Until then, keep shining!
i’ve seen that top one before a few times. it never ceases to inspire.
Love this! Thank you!
Thank you for dropping by and liking my blog, El.
I love your attitude to travel and hope that it remains with you for all of your life.
Your post here is very timely for me and I totally appreciate it. A good “wake up call” for all of us.
Good luck in all your future wanderings.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please stay in touch. I’m glad I came across your blog.
all my best to you
Reblogged this on spiritualworldtraveler and commented:
The Universe, through that creative vortex-like energy, brought this incredible blog into my life!
I want to be her when I grow up!
Thank you so much darling! It means a lot.
Thanks for the like on my blog!
I just posted the PASSION piece on the 23rd… it’s so nice to be reminded sometimes.
This is a timely post to keep reminding us all to pursue our passions.
It’s interesting to read about your solo adventures. There’s so much to learn through life and travels. Thank you, el for sharing your stories.
And thanks for liking my recent post.
Safe and happy travels.
Wow I really Love this post. Very Powerful and inspiring. LIfe is beautiful and this post really makes you want to appreciate living it to the fullest.
Just perfect, beautifull, inspiring, wise and a great start to my day, thankyou for this little gem, and thankyou for liking my post Dawny
Lovely post. I try to follow every one of the items on your list, except “stop over analysing”. Oh boy, if I could get that one down, I’d have so much less angst in life.
Enjoy the day. I’ll be back to visit.
I have the same point to master .. ; )
There are no coincidences, I am so happy to connect with you at this time!
Enjoy your journey~
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Returning the love. Your blog is the shiz-nit. Haha. I’m jealous you got to walk with tigers in Africa, something I need to cross off the list! Keep up the adventures!
And I’m hoping to get to Malaysia.. ; )
Best place to hang out with tigers (that I know of) is the Tiger Temple just outside of Bangkok. It’s amazing! Monks raise the tigers and you can walk with them, touch them, and even play with the babies…as crazy as that sounds, you really can. I’ll post about it soon and include some incredible pictures. http://www.reallifeallyson.wordpress.com
Reblogged this on kent budge photography.
Your blog is one for the world to see. Thanks.
I love your blog! It’s really beautiful. Thank you for checking out mine as well. Just getting started but enjoying the ride so far
Rule 1 of the instructions is the greatest truth of all yet so many people get it wrong. Your blog is a perfect testament to that though.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and ‘liking’ it.
I like your style and your philosophy! Breathe deeply and stay ALIVE!!
Thank you Mike! and I’m looking forward to reading about your crazy motocross adventures.. ( can I call it that ? )
ps – may there always be a road..
I hope you don’t mind if I reblog this cause I love it. Thanks for visiting my site.
Please do.. maybe it will help someone else who sees it take that first step as well..

Reblogged this on cazbag and commented:
I could have written this myself, is it too big to get made into a tattoo so I never forget?
I’ve reblogged this. Totally love it. Thanks for liking my post on fourwallsistaken, you were the first one! I’ll be blogging more on cazbag today if they have free wifi at Pancake Rocks, New Zealand! Packing to get on the road now. Keep living life, sounds like you’re very good at it
Thank you for sharing this post! It’s the kind of message that needs to be seen : )
Bon Voyage to you!
Thanks so much for following my blog! I followed yours too. It looks like we have some overlapping interests, including travel and Africa, among other places. Glad you like the shot of Kili! It was a souvenir from my climb. Good luck if you climb it on your next visit to Tanzania! Glad I did it but not sure I would do it again, although of course I’m a glutton for punishment and am planning to hike the Himilayas next year.
The sayings in “This is your Life” are so true. I needed to write, so I quit my day job as a diplomat. Life is too short not to follow your dream.
Let’s keep in touch.
