The Itch

It has been way too long since I traveled. I really miss it. As frustrating as it is to pack, go through security at airports, try to interact in a language different than my own, and try to get around in an unfamiliar city… I’d give up the monotony of daily life in an instant in exchange for a little travel! There is just something exciting about the unknown. There is something special about finding your way in a foreign place that makes you feel alive. Your world can become bigger when you travel. You become exposed to different ways of living life; different perspectives. It forces you to choose to see yourself (and the world around you) in the same way, or from a different perspective. Travel experiences can make you a bigger and better person, if you let it. So, inadvertently my desire to travel is actually a desire to become more self aware. That’s an itch that should never be fully scratched.

For those of you with a similar itch to travel, here are some older pictures from different trips. In each place, I have learned a little bit more about myself and the people I’ve met there. Here’s to the hope of scratching more of that itch soon!
