You know that feeling you got as a kid on the night before Christmas (or insert your favorite holiday)? That giddy, excited, “oh my gosh, oh my gosh, is it time yet?” kind of feeling? That’s how I feel about traveling. I’ve had a passport since I was a baby. And the feeling doesn’t go away either. Some people think, “Oh I’ve been to a few places, I’m good now.” Nope, not me. I want to go everywhere and see everything. I want to learn about different cultures and see why people do the things they do. Everyone has something that they’re passionate about; for me, it’s traveling.
I think people should travel. Correction, they NEED to travel. There’s a whole big world out there! I think people become more open-minded and accepting of others when they travel. They learn that there is more than one way to do something. They learn to have empathy towards others. And they’re just more well-rounded as a whole.
I’m very grateful that I’ve been able to travel. I’ve seen some cool things and done some awesome stuff. But like I said before, I don’t think I’ll ever be satisfied. I’m going to keep going and keep traveling until I’ve been….. everywhere!
