One of the most incredible aspects of travel is its ability to change us. It teaches us lessons we didn’t know we needed to learn. It alters perspectives we didn’t know would ever change. And, it provides experiences that instill compassion, tolerance, patience, and so much more.
But, why do we do it? Why do we pack our bags, board planes, and travel to places both near and far? Perhaps it’s the adrenaline that makes us feel alive, or maybe it protects us from feeling complacent in life. For some, maybe it comforts us to know we’re forever evolving into better humans, widening our view of the world. Or, perhaps, it’s simply watching our children experience new things with pure joy and excitement in their eyes.
No matter what your reasoning is, it’s your motivation, it’s your calling, and it’s your ‘why’.
