Adventures allow us to go outside of our comfort zone, which in turn can lead us to be more comfortable with ourselves. After 5 weeks of traveling throughout Europe, (in addition to my previous travel experiences) I have found that traveling constantly pushes personal boundaries and challenges our so called “norms.” Being exposed to different cultures, languages, beautiful places and people makes me recognize how many different ways we can choose to live our lives. The freedom we experience when traveling allows us to rediscover the essence of who we are.
If you don’t have ANY travel plans in the next 1-2 years, what are you waiting for?!!! Stop being jealous about your friend’s travel stories and pictures. Start saving and start planning now. Your journey abroad will challenge you in ways that your daily life simply cannot.
We all need a break from our regular routine, its part of maintaining a healthy balance. Pick a destination and make it happen.
