I believe that seasoned travelers know that travel is less about where you are, and more about your willingness to explore, connect with others, and be present.
I have traveled to over 20 countries, lived on 2 continents, and in
4 cities 5 cities.
I want to create a space where our travel experiences inspire each other to travel – be it short, long, near, or far. The posts are practical and candid; rather than providing yet another exhaustive list of places to visit, I’ll be the friend who gives you the low-down on what to do and where to go. Even without the luxury of spending long periods of time abroad, travel can still be a meaningful and culturally enriching experience.
Whether you’re a savvy traveler who’s been half way around the world and back or looking for the perfect weekend adventure to whet your appetite, there’s a little something for all those who love to travel.
I was 4 years old when I went on my first trip abroad. My parents took me to Japan. I remembered the following:
- I peered into an active volcano (I probably didn’t)
- Sparklers are really hot
- Japanese food is delicious
I also took my first photograph on that trip. My parents’ advice to the young photographer: get everyone in the frame. I took their advice and we now have a lovely photo of my grandmother and my parents in our family album. I dare say the composition was rather interesting; perhaps I’ll share it with you one day.
The travel bug bit me on that trip and I’ve been infected ever since. I have now traveled in over 20 countries, most of them during my adult life, while studying/working full-time. In the past, I have been envious of those who can travel for a living or who take a year off to explore the world. However, I’ve come to learn that my travel experiences have had a profound impact on my outlook on life and how I interact with those around me. So I continue to travel, near and far, whenever I can.
