Why I travel

Traveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. It's the best education as well as soul medicine, you'll ever get. Nothing teaches you more than exploring the world and accumulating experiences. No one is gonna teach you who you are or who you want to be. You need to find out on your own.
Use every opportunity to make new experiences. Trust me, experience is far more valuable than money will ever be. So travel, while you're young and able. Don't worry about the money, just make it work. The world is big, and before it gets dark, you should try to see as much as possible of it. Just go. Pack your suitcase with the most necessary things and start your journey. Even a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Promise me to live life to the fullest. Take every chance you get, you never know when or if you'll have the chance again. Make sure, you'll never have to look back and wish you would've done it. You don't have time? I know. No one has time. The question is not about having time or not, it's about using your time wisely. Try saying “It's not a priority”, instead of saying “I don't have time”. Now- how does that feel? Isn't traveling a priority to you? Don't you think it'd be fulfilling to see how other people live? Don't you think they might give you some inspiration on how to live a good life? Don't you wanna see more than this place in the world? Don't you think there's so much more out there? So much to explore, so many adventures, so much fun and so many experiences?
The thing about waiting is, that you never really know – maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bath in it, roll around, let it slide like coins through your fingers. Maybe for you there's so much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.
So don't wait. The time is never gonna be just right.

Traveling is so much more than just seeing a new place. To travel is to live. “Living” has become a rare thing in this hectic world. Most people just exist. But trust me, most things you stress about today, are gonna be irrelevant in a year's time. Don't stress too much about things, that aren't worth the stress or the pain. And more importantly, never lose your happiness while giving everything you can to achieve something. Be happy., Love yourself and don't force things. You will never have to force anything, that's truly meant to be. That's the key to a happy life. - Cos in the end, life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself.
Create yourself by experiencing new and by doing what you love!

And if people don't believe in you, telling you you'd be stupid and aren't supporting your lifestyle and travel desire:
Trust me, one day, the people who never believed in you will tell everyone how they met you.

So do what YOU love. Not what others want you to love. Think what you think, don't let other people make you think something else. Let go of what makes you unhappy. Explore. Experience. Adventure.
Cos in the end, it's your life. And your decision on how to live it.

Life is a journey.
