Why I Travel

There are so many reasons in life, that we all do what we do…  We all go to work, because well, we have to make money to live.  We all have mortgages or rent to pay, bills, and a million other things on our plate that requires the all mighty dollar, to get us what and where we think we need to be in life.  I guess you could say I look at things a little differently…

I certainly go to work, and have obligations that require money to live, just like everyone else, but I travel to feel alive.  There is something about the 9 to 5 grind, that makes me feel dead.  Seriously, really, really dead…  Colleagues, deadlines, and work projects can suck the life out of me, as I am sure many of you could very easily agree.  Anytime I am packing my bags, and headed to the airport, or packing our RV to travel to an unknown (or well known) part of the world, I just feel alive.  My endorphins are higher than the sky, and my face is glowing like a kid on Christmas day.

Living the travel life! Pure Happiness!

 

I think it is safe to say, that most of us feel this way when we go on a trip.  For me, traveling truly makes me feel alive, and better than new.  I love experiencing new cultures, seeing new places, and exposing myself to new things.  Luckily for me, I have been able to incorporate traveling as a regular part of my life.  I feel lucky, I feel blessed, and furthermore, I feel more ALIVE than I ever have, because I TRAVEL!
