Many of us wish we could be Columbus someday and just set sail to unknown destinations. Wanderlust affects each of us at one time or another, maybe today more than ever before. Travel changes you. The allure of the wide open world, filled with history, culture, and scenic landscapes is an irresistible one. To be able to soon, once again, jet off into some foreign country is an exciting thought.
As the world is slowly (slowly!) reopening after the Covid19 pandemic, makings some plans is great. Maybe you can’t go to far just yet. But looking at plane tickets, reopening plane routes, cruise fares, and checking out hotels to stay at kept me somewhat sane throughout the travel hiatus we’ve been through. A journey to a new place provides us with a chance to broaden our horizons. It is also an opportunity to get away from it all. Life is never as exciting as when one is away from everything familiar, taking in the sights and sounds.
How Travel Changes You
“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” ~ Heraclitus
Travel changes your perception of the world, and that’s how travel changes you as a human being in this world. Travel is a journey to self-discovery, and the highs of traveling to a new place are many. People don’t change. They just become more themselves and break free from what was holding them back. Anything else is not sustainable. Through travel, we become a little more familiar with ourselves by discovering a new culture, and new people along the way. Every experience is a mirror in which we can learn a little more about who we truly are.
No matter where I go, I always imagine “living” there, and start to eventually feel at home. Travel helps gain new perspectives on this thing we call life. As we once again start to travel to newer and more unknown lands, we are able to emerge out of our isolated existences. Isn’t that what we call a life worth living? Exploring new worlds is exciting because as we uncover new and foreign experiences to us, our mind grows and expands with the new experience.
