I was lost in my thought today, And here’s a little something that I would like to share with everyone.
When I say I want to travel, I don’t mean I want to stay at resorts and go on tours with tour guides or buy key chains from souvenir shops. I don’t want to be a tourist. When I say I want to travel I mean I want to explore another country and become part of it. I want to discover small or unique cafés in Japan, France, and Italy. I want to walk on the beaches in Barcelona and smell the freshness of the morning market in Australia.
I want to go rock climbing at Machu Picchu and cliff diving in Hawaii. I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same. I want to take pictures of things, places and people that I meet. I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on earth. I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I’ve been to the things I’ve seen and the people I’ve met. This, I think is what is at the heart of adventure and this is why I plan on making my life one.
I know we might have a different perspective on happiness. So, what’s happiness for you?
