The Journey.

Status

Sometimes we get so anxious about our future we forget to just enjoy the journey. This week I have started to stop and appreciate the here and the now…and that the journey is the part that makes life interesting…

I love this quote though and it describes quite closely exactly how I feel about traveling.

” I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about, I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking 12 miles for four buckets of water. And there are lessons you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people- Americans and Europeans- come back and go, “oohhhhh.” And the lightbulb goes on.—Henry Rollins

Traveling is never far from my heart. I adore this quote, but mostly there is a big reason why it has been on my heart more and more lately…

and I can’t wait to share with you where we are traveling to next!!!
