When I travel I feel vibrant and healthy. It’s because we tend to travel with a focus on outdoor experiences. The weight strips away and my body hardens with each new hike, bike ride, and kayak trip.
It helps me to feel magnificent. Because in this smallness I am apart of something so great. My ego – that part of me that needs to feel large and superior – diminishes, and I’m left with just the part that is ego free. The true essence of peace and love.
The greatest travel memories I gave usually are surrounded by the people I have met and spent time with. Sometimes it is people from my own culture, many times it’s not.
Whether it’s trying new cuisines, navigating unfamiliar transportation systems, getting to a different city, or communicating in a foreign language, travel requires you to step outside of your usual routine and take risks.
When you immerse yourself in a different culture, you gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and experiences that other people face.
