Traveling is something that will always makes me feel that it is part of my life. I have been travelling, obviously not in continuous (I travel when I can), since I was 10. From way back, I am 24 now, (born in 1992 – so if you are reading this in another year you can calculate how old I am), I can’t say that I travelled the world but I have been to various countries with different cultures; meeting locals and getting to know how is their way of living.
I have traveled with family, with tours, with friends, with my partner and solo. They all have their particular experience and challenges that it turns me out into something more thoughtful.
The reason, I love to travel is because: Get to know and meet new people with different type of mindsets. Make friends and connections anywhere. Constantly be learning and getting wiser. Happiness that does not acquire things, but brings you memories that lasts. Traveling makes me feel out of my comfort zone 24/7. Gives me energy that I can’t stop doing it.
Comfort zone, describing it as feeling safe, settled with the surroundings, and in control of the environment. Realistically being safe, settled and routine, that works for some people. But as I see it for my self, being in control and in a comfy surroundings, it makes me not selfhood. I am a type of person, who can’t live in one place. It hungers me to meet strangers, discover new ventures, and explore new places.
I consider that every experience changes a person. Traveling is part of experiences that changes a person too. For me, I believe that traveling changed me a lot both for good and for worse. In life it is not always Roses and flowers. The good part is that I learned a lot, such as how to travel easier, being out of comfort, dealing with problems, and being more curious. The worse part is that my aim is to travel more and more around the world – became too addictive.
