WHY DO WE TRAVEL?
I’ve been thinking about the nature of travel in general. What is it that excites us about traveling?
Let me try to put my thoughts into words. #travelthoughts
Obviously, I travel to see beautiful landscapes, experience new things and explore places I’ve never been before.
But there is something more that excites me even more about traveling. It is this feeling of doing something for the first time. As we get older, “first” experiences are becoming less. However, being in a foreign country for the first time always comes with the feeling of excitement and nervousness.
On top of that, traveling for me, is education. It is to learn about other countries, cultures, other lifestyles, other people. And it is to learn about myself.
And then there are the people you meet along the way. I met so many amazing individuals while traveling who I most probably wouldn’t have met in my daily life. People who inspired me. People who taught me new things. People who opened my mind. Some of these people are my closest friends now and I can’t think of a better souvenir. 😊
