Traveling is one of my greatest teachers, but even after thirty years of traveling, it’s still challenging for me to leave the familiar and complacent world behind.
But I challenge myself and take the risk of exploring the unknown. I already have butterflies in my belly. What about you? Have you taken a longer journey, like six months to a year, and explored the world? I started with eight months, then nine, and it became years and decades. Every journey taught me something important and unique about myself and the world. Of course, nobody has to go anywhere to know himself or herself. The most essential thing is deep within us. Or rather, the world happens inside of us. However, seeing another country, meeting new people, and exploring new cultures can be a lot of fun, and even during and after pandemics and world wars, traveling is still an option! Don’t let yourself be stopped from living your dreams, and if traveling is on your bucket list, by all means, explore yourself! Traveling is definitely one of my greatest teachers.
