There is something magical about exploring a new place. Getting a taste of a new culture, new food, and new people. Looking around at buildings you’ve never seen before, hearing a new language, a new accent. Something so different yet sometimes it can still feel so familiar. I did not travel much growing up but once I traveled outside of America I fell in love. I knew it was something that I needed to do more of. I fell in love. Traveling, although it may be costly is an invaluable experience. It is life changing and for me has been completely eye opening. It has changed my perspective on so many things. I love America it will always be home to me but traveling this much makes me wonder if maybe I am better suited to live in a different country. Or maybe just even a different city in the United States. I don’t know.
Traveling has made me question everything I once thought I knew about my life… and that right there is why I fell in traveling. It means that I am changing and growing as a person. I am no longer the extremely shy and semi-sheltered person I once was. I feel as if traveling has helped me really grow into a mature person. I used to be so shy and also just really and truly unsure of who I was as a person and while I still have NO CLUE of who exactly I am… I know that traveling has truly help me to learn more about myself and where I might be going in life. (only time will tell) But I am so very excited to see what the future has to hold for me. And what place I will be fortunate enough to explore in the future.
