Traveling isn't just about flying to the next city, spending money, taking photographs and turning back home with a sun-tan. It's about discovering yourself, learning new things, making new friends, and slowly getting used to how small the world is. Your first 13-hour- flight will last forever, and might even feel like a small torture. The more often you will travel, the more easily you will get used to the transportation journey that will bring you to your destination.
Every moment, and every new experience you will go through abroad, will have an impact on the rest of your life. It will help you making decisions, it will change your way of thinking, your perception of people and objects around you. You will get a different sense of taste while discovering new local dishes, and you will appreciate the food at home even more.
Discovering new sounds abroad will increase your musical horizon. You will start listening to music, and lyrics you won't even understand.
The friendships you made while traveling, will often last forever. You will miss your new friends, because they helped you or made you feel safe in a country or a city, in which you never expected to feel at home. Those new friends gave you the warmest welcome, and you will look forward to meet them again, somewhere in the world.
Your travels will make your daily life less boring. Your travel memories will remain, and everyday you will think about how the last trip had an impact on you. You won't feel the urge to spend your next holidays in fancy hotels, but you will focus on the more important things while traveling. Friendships, memories, love, food, knowledge... Traveling is a passion, a way of living.
It will help to find yourself, or it will help you to gain a better perspective of who you already are.
You can never travel too far. #grandcanyon #passion #traveler - 5 hours ago
