I love to travel. And it’s a good thing, too, since I spend so much of my time doing it. I just finished calculating, and by the end of 2017, I will have spent a total of 66 days in my own bed (give or take 2-3 days that are still in the air)!
Experiencing different cultures first hand every day and adapting to different climates and living situations on the fly is a life experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything. Around every corner a traveler can see things from a different perspective, and most of the time will automatically begin sharing those experiences with everyone they encounter. I believe that when you enrich yourself through globe-trotting, you inadvertently begin enriching those around you through storytelling.
While chatting with a dear friend yesterday, he made me realize why I enjoy peregrination so much. It’s not the rush you get going to a new place for the first time, the excitement from trying a new food or the reflection of looking back on your photographs (though those are wonderful side effects)! The reason I love travel above all is that through it, one can enlist enlightenment.
You never know how much a story or an experience that you pass along can change someone’s world, attitude or entire outlook on life. So share your stories with the world! I hope to share several in the coming days on this very blog. I hope you’ll be reading… and hope that some of you may be enlightened as well!
