My love to travel. To be on the road over and over again. A way of life. And sensations born within.
Travelling. Short term. Long term. Alone, with friends, with family. To the shop around the corner. To the end of the world. Across cultures, continents. To a destination. Through a stage of life.
Travelling genuinely shapes me. Been on the road my entire life.
But what does travelling really give me?
Where does it take me? Why does it have such a huge impact on my life? These were some of the questions I’ve been wondering about today. That led to so many more…
“Where travelling begins, a journey begins.”
To be on the road is magical. The moment the decision is born, the decision to leave, it’s like a rush of adrenaline, excitement. Figuring out the destination. Planning it. Preparing it. Getting ready for it. And then living it. Moment to moment.
Whenever I set off, I feel that something new, something exciting is waiting for me out there. Something unknown. I can’t wait to explore. I can’t wait to go discover. I can’t wait to experience something different. That challenges me. My eyes. My body. My curiosity. My determination. My will. My beliefs. My values. My senses.
Travelling expands my horizons. It gives me a new perspective. I learn, I observe. I embrace the new. I engage in dialogue. I open. I respect. I understand.
The world. Myself. A bit better.
Enriching. Motivating. Captivating.
I start seeking answers. Wondering. Asking more questions. I realise there is so much more out there…Travelling opens my eyes. It opens my soul. It changes everything. I change…
Travelling is challenge. When I come back, nothing and no one is the same anymore. I am not the same anymore.
Travelling. A process. A continuum. The side effect - or rather its true essence - is something so much deeper. Deeper than merely discovering new places.
Travelling. A new beginning. A fresh start. Closing chapters of my life. And opening new.
Travelling. Expanding comfort zones. Ticking off the bucket lists.
The taste of success. And the amazing sensation that comes with it. That I am out there. And I can do it! No matter what. Satisfaction. Appreciation. Joy. I am good. I am brave. I am worthy. I am whole. I feel awesome.
Travelling. And the realisation of no escape. From my package. From myself.
Leaving things behind. Letting go. Problems. Relations. Fears. Expectations. Pressure.
To get away. Or sometimes just forget. To reflect from a distance. From a new perspective.
To understand. And thus be understood.
But how could I leave myself behind??
Travelling. Scary. It takes me to the unknown…
I travel to surrender. Surrender to myself.
When I set off to conquer the mountain. And on the top of the mountain, I find myself. :)
Travelling. A challenge for a lifetime.
An extremely rewarding, inspiring road trip of transformation. Personal growth. 100% pure.
And more than anything, a fascinating, everlasting journey of self-discovery.
For everyone, his or her own…
