In a society that tells us to hustle and bustle, I never realized how much I needed travel therapy until I started traveling. With each place I travel to, with new friends I make, I collect another piece of myself, and I gain an entirely fresh perspective on the world. My taste buds enjoy the exotic tastes of a local meal, my ears are fascinated by the new sounds, my eyes are refreshed by a new view, my nose takes in new fragrances, my mind is distracted from the daily grind, and my entire being takes in my surroundings. I am rejuvenated by the new adventure. I capture the most beautiful moments in my heart, so that when I’m old and grey, I will have stories about the world. I will know that I did not stand still, that I explored and enjoyed the playgrounds of this earth, and that I gave something back to the communities that embraced me! I believe that the world needs much more of this.
