Why do I travel?
Nothing beats the feeling of stillness. To sit alone, amongst a beautiful landscape, with nothing but your thoughts. Perched above a Valley, a Fjord, a Canyon or a City, and you start to slow your mind. You revel in all of your senses as you mindfully close your eyes. You take in everything around you. The smell in the air, the sound of the wind gently making its way through this foreign land, the feeling of the sun or snow as it melts in to your skin. As you take in the sound of your own breathe once more, and begin to open your eyes, you realise you are truly at one with this magnificent Universe.
While I love to travel with my partner and groups of friends, I really have to say that it just doesn’t compare to the feeling of travelling by yourself. I know it may be cliche to say “you learn so much about yourself”, but you really do. Travel gives you a form of self-growth, that you really can’t get from any other experience. It opens your eyes to see the world differently, and notice the beauty in everything!
