I might give the impression to people that I travel a lot.
On and off I shake up my life and embark on a few months of long travel. The rest of the time I live in a routine of hard work, while saving money for travel and photography equipment.
Travel for me has become essential, the same way is to get out of my comfort zone.
We most of the time are surrounded by family and friends, that believe and think in a similar way we do.
By getting in contact with people and situations TOTALLY different, we learn a thing or two. The person who leaves to travel never come back. I have already changed so many times.
Travel is also a cure to nationalism, it makes you a citizen of the world. You learn how to deal better with unexpected things, pushing your limits, boosts your ideas. It is even proven to be beneficial for your Health; physically and mentally.
For those that think that I travel a lot. Its not enough. I want to travel more.
“Your brain gets too comfortable in your everyday surroundings. You need to make it uncomfortable. You need to spend some time in another land, among people that do things differently than you. Travel makes the world look new, and when the world looks new, our brains work harder.”
