The reason why I travel
Why I travel: I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I’ve had a love of travel for a long time. I even turned it into a career where I take and help others take trips they never thought they’d take or have been wanting to take for a long time. It’s just something that’s always been part of me.
The main reason I travel is because it makes you live in that exact moment. Nothing else in your life matters at that point because you’re somewhere new, experiencing things for the very first time. There’s no time to think about the past and the future—you have to live in the ‘now.’ Be in the moment and appreciate all the things around you.
One of my favorite things about traveling and why I never want to stop? It keeps you in a constant state of learning. Yes, you can always pick up a book and read about a place, but there isn’t anything like first-hand experience. Seeing the things you have always dreamed about up close and personal. Seeing it for yourself and wondering, ‘how in the world did I get here? How did I get so lucky in life that this is what I am doing? Seeing it for myself?’ Or maybe that’s just me. You learn to be kinder, gentler, patient and more connected to the rest of the world when you go out and explore it.
So that’s why I travel.
