Travel to me is more than a vacation.
Travel is the best tool for self-discovery. The more you travel, the more self-aware you become. You learn to know what is essential in life. You start to realise that the titles and money you chase neglecting your health and relationships do not matter in the end. The more I travel, the more I crave a simple existence. The more I try not to become something or somebody else. Each trip has helped me grow into my authentic self. I am more true to not just to myself, but to my emotions and thoughts regularly. Travel enriches you as a person and teaches you the value of vulnerability.
Travel enriches you as a person, shows you a glimpse of the real problems out there in the world. It has made me adopt a vegan lifestyle. It has shown me the beauty of minimalism. All in all, it has helped me grow to become a kinder compassionate being. Travel has many times helped me break stereotypes. I have been given a place to stay by extremists as what society called when I was in need of accommodation. I have heard the dreams of those who have escaped from war. I have seen the refugees. All of this experience makes me feel so much gratitude for what I have. It is the primary motivation for me to do or pursue things that will be able to fulfill me from within.
Travel has also taught me acceptance. I come from a multiracial country. However, racism is prevalent in my society. Travel has made me connect with people from different part of the world. It has allowed me to realise that to judge someone based on the skin is a waste of time to genuine connections and love.
Travel is for those who have the courage to seek adventure from the mundane life. Travel is for those who know that there is more to life than what society prescribes. Travel if you ever have the opportunity. To travel is to life. Peace.
